We chose to have our wedding here in April because it is so unique. When you stay at Renvyle you are looking for something special - downtime, relaxed atmosphere, amazing food, turf fires and a beautiful location. The house is old and steeped in history and as we foud out, it was a favourite of Yeats but it does not neatly fit into "Old Country House" category either and it is the better for it I believe.
It is not your spa hotel, it's not your boom time 5 star hotel - it is a hotel from the arts and crafts movement that allows you feel at home rather than a mere guest. If you know this era you'll enjoy the little touches the hotel continues to follow to retain it's character.
I know weddings can be special ocassions and because we were so happy with how ours went, it is easy to be biased but I have been in Renvyle on many occassions and for me it is the consistent 'at home' atmosphere, the turf fires, the attentative but not over fussy staff and the food that makes it so special. We felt like we owned the place - nothing was too much.
We had 150 guests - French and Irish. Our French guests were astounded at the food - they couldn't believe such quality could be served to such a large number of guests. And even in the speeches, they joked that they were embarassed to extend the invitation to us to go to France as we had stole their unique selling point of good food. They had already decided they couldn't compete with the location!
It truly is a special spot and if you're not too bothered with 5 star extras but appreciate the key points of good food, great service and atmosphere and old world charm, then you'll love Renvyle.
