Garryvoe was a fantastic place to have our reception! When we were looking at different venues we both just had a gut instinct about Garryvoe that we couldn't quite put words on...but we went with it and it was 100% the right call. The room for the drinks reception and the ball room were beautiful and the food was delicious (with generous helpings and seconds!). The staff were so good for looking after us and checking that everything was perfect. They put in so many little touches that we would never have thought of asking for: a special room to store our decorations the week before the wedding, they took our flowers that we had in the church and put them on the tables, other small details that I've forgotten now but at the time made me smile. No matter what little request we thought of asking for, the answer was always "no bother, we'll take care of that". Arranging a wedding is such a stressful and busy job, but everything was hassle-free in Garryvoe and they couldn't have made it any more of a pleasure. They clearly specialise in weddings, and have a lot of experience. They went along with anything we wanted, but their wedding planners also thought of plenty of things that we didn't. They were willing to keep all the rooms for the wedding guests up until quite near the wedding too. It was like having the run of a mansion with just your friends and family - we really felt at home there.
I don't know what else to say - if we were to get married again, we'd do it all over in Garryvoe! We'd recommend it to anyone.
