We were married in the Garryvoe Hotel in July and had a truly wonderful day. In fact we had three super days there ! From the moment we walked into the hotel, we knew it was where we wanted to be married. It's a stunning location and a beautiful hotel and we were very proud to bring 70 of our closet family and friends there. We had a civil ceremony followed by a drinks reception in the library and enjoyed a gorgeous meal in their smaller function room at the front of the hotel. We found all the staff from the front reception team, restaurant staff and the management team to be excellent. It didn't seem to matter that we were a relatively small wedding and probably one of 3 or 4 that week. All of our guests were really impressed by the hotel. People commented about everything from the food to the staff, to the bedrooms and the location itself. It ticks a lot of boxes !! The choice of bars is also something we really liked. They catered for everyone as did the bistro bar and restaurant. For me a stand out memory is the bridal suite. It is just breathtaking and the views are amazing. It was such a relaxing place to get ready and according to our photographer it is the most spectacular bridal suite in the country. High praise indeed ! We can't recommend the Garryvoe highly enough. It was absolutely perfect for us and we will certainly be back next year to enjoy the hotel and indeed East Cork again.
