On 12th April 2013 we celebrated our wedding reception in the Kenmare Bay Hotel in Co. Kerry. We are both from Co. Cork and got married in our parish church in Clogheen, Co. Cork, and afterwards we traveled down with our 55 guests. The hotel supplied a wedding car to take me from my home to the church and both of us wherever we wanted for pics and then down to the hotel. As well as this the small touch was a picnic basket and champers for us which means a lot when you are totally excited after been married and wanting to toast the occasion and sambos because you are or if your hungry, and loads more goodies in the basket.
We has a fantastic day. The food in the hotel was outstanding, the staff was amazing and could not do enough for us. Tom our wedding manager could not have been more helpful, friendly and put us so much at ease that we didnt have to worry about anything and on the day he outshone himself again by meeting and greeting everybody on arrival and when the meal was ready getting everybody together for the sit down and brought us in afterwards to make our own special entrance.
The staff at our meal did a fab job aswell by making sure everybody had enough and catering for the small people (kiddies) that were at the reception too. Everybody at the meal commented how good the food and service was saying they will definitely be back.
The bar staff were great and made sure that all our guests were catered for and were very friendly which is great too.
Our 2 night stay in the bridal suite was brilliant as firstly the little small gestures again by when we arrived there was a bottle of champers, a wedding card and a box of chocs for us newly weds and champers breakie on both morning, ordered through Tom (when he phoned to see what we would like) and then delivered to our room, which is so nice when you just want a bit of time out after your big day.
Some of our guests stayed in the lodges and holiday homes and were so impressed with them (with the comfort and price).
We had a two day wedding and stayed on the sat nite, the location is great because your are in walking distance of everything so some guests did their own thing on sat and some stayed around the hotel and used the facilities (the pool and gym which are fantastic too). the food on the 2nd night was outstanding too and again everyone commented.
Overall we cant say enough about our wedding reception, our stay and the staff of the Kenmare Bay Hotel. It made our day even more special than it was already and we would highly recommend this hotel for weddings, special occasions or just a nice relaxing night, weekend or holiday away.
