We signed up with WeddingDates some years ago, two days before Christmas of 2015, and Ciara made sure that our listing was visible during a very important period for us. We have since got solid, trackable business through them throughout each year – we can trace around a third of all of our wedding business to have come via WeddingDates. It would seem that Ciara leads a team who are focused on us and who are always ready to assist at a moments notice. The new features and innovations over the years have certainly shown real results for us!
As a wedding venue consultant I work alongside Ciara and the Wedding Dates team in five different hotels and venues across Ireland. They provide an invaluable service and are constantly innovating and adding new additions to their offerings which generate superior leads for my clients. Time and time again clients remark on the quality of the business that is referred by Wedding Dates as being far superior to other competitors in the industry. The knowledge and assistance that Ciara and the team provide to hotels and venues is really exceptional.
I have worked with WeddingDates now for 10 years. Niamh is our Account Manager at Wedding Dates, weddings are her thing, she thrives on them and brings that enthusiasm to her clients also. She is our account manager at Trigon Hotels where two of our hotels do exceptional weddings the Cork International Hotel and the Metropole Hotel Cork in the heart of the city. She listens to our needs and she delivers. I am delighted to recommend Niamh to any future clients of Weddings Dates, she is a great addition to Ciara’s great team.
The Midlands Top Rated Wedding Venue, the 4* Abbey Hotel Roscommon have worked with Wedding Dates for a number of years now. This quirky and interactive website for Wedding Venues, based in the UK & Ireland ticks all the boxes for creating added exposure for our 18th Century Family Run Castle Manor Hotel nestled in the heart of the Irish Midlands. Our association with Wedding Dates has helped generate leads and a fruitful and growing number of weddings from all over Ireland. They have an active presence on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and for a Marketeer and Social Media Blogger like me, it makes my job so worthwhile to know we have that added support from a Company that is also passionate about seeing our Wedding Business Grow. Exposure of our various offers, Wedding Couples testimonials, Blogs, Real Weddings, and Newsletters are always guaranteed great exposure via the Marketing Ezines they generate. Ciara Crossan the CEO together with Niamh and the Team are always professional, supportive and efficient and we love the imagination and flair this site offers as well as the added Social Media Benefits this site brings to the Abbey Hotel. Keep up the good work and long may our relationship with Wedding Dates continue.
We have been working with WeddingDates for a number of years now and have found it very beneficial - we receive high quality wedding enquiries and bookings from it. Ciara and her team are highly professional and always available to assist with market insights and information when required. I would happily recommend WeddingDates to any boutique venue looking to improve their wedding business - it's worked for us!
Wedding Dates is an invaluable tool to me here in The Louis Fitzgerald Hotel.
This site is a fantastic concept with real results and help when needed. 9 out of 10 enquirers turn into sales which as everyone knows is phenomenal. I know a lot of people would say in the industry that it's all dependent on who they meet when the prospective bride and groom arrives, but, it's also vitally important that they do arrive on property, which is in thanks to this wonderful site.
Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel has been working with Ciara and the team at WeddingDates for over 3 years now. The platform is excellent and one of the best in the wedding industry delivering strong levels of both enquiries and awareness for Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel. The WeddingDates Awards are another excellent platform to raise the profile of the brand and something that the hotel fully supports. Overall WeddingDates is a platform that not only delivers but continues to grow year on year due to the hard work and commitment of Ciara and her team.
Since our decision to join WeddingDates in late 2015, we have been continually impressed with their level of service, helpful and professional advice and not only are they always on hand for any questions I might have, they take the time to check in with us on a very regular basis to ensure that we are happy with everything. Here at The Shamrock Lodge Hotel, we have gained substantial coverage due to their hard work and dedication and are continuing to see the advantages of working with Ciara and the team. I would highly recommend them to any hotel in the wedding business and will continue to look forward to working with them.
When I first met Ciara I was blown away by her passion and genuine interest in Rochestown Park Hotel. We signed up with WeddingDates nearly 6 months ago and cannot recommend it highly enough.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Ciara along with the rest of the WeddingDates team and it is clear that their priority is to provide the best product and service for all their clients and constantly looking for new ways to enhance and develop WeddingDates. Thank you Ciara and the rest of the WeddingDates team for their constant support and keep up the good work!
Langton House Hotel recently ran a Facebook Competition designed and orchestrated by Karen and the WeddingDates team. We supported this with a campaign on Beat 102 103 FM.

I have been working with WeddingDates for nearly a year now & cannot recommend it highly enough. WeddingDates has raised the profile of Springfield Hotel immensely & joining WeddingDates has been one of the best decisions I made since I joined the team here. Karen Buchanan is my main point of contact & I feel she goes above & beyond & has a genuine interest in the hotel. Karen is always at the end of the phone & I was delighted when she suggested running a bespoke Facebook competition to fill off-peak dates that we had available. Setting up the competition was hassle free, and it was a pleasure to work with the WeddingDates team in getting it live. My enquiries increased two fold & I can honestly say I can name 4 weddings that came through the competition.

Karen and Paul were always just a phone call or an email away in assisting me when needed. I can not recommend them enough and I very much look forward to continuing our relationship with all the team at WeddingDates.

Just want to say a BIG thank you. There has been a substantial amount of wedding enquires coming form your website. Our wedding co-ordinator has commented that because of your web site, she is now doing far more show-a-rounds and predictably many of which are now either booked or at the latter stages of confirming.
From the time we started working with WeddingDates we have found each and every member of staff there pleasant and very easy to work with.
