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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Renvyle House is a four star, historic country house, family owned and family run. It first opened as a hotel in 1883 and is spectacularly located on a 150 acre estate on the shores of the Wild Atlantic Way (midway point of the longest car touring route in the world!). Renvyle House is known for it’s “air of otherwordliness” which we believe is a strong and unique selling point and something of which we are very proud. Our emphasis is on customer service “friendly combined with professional” and we believe this plays a large part in why Renvyle enjoys over 55% repeat business. The hotel resort grounds include a private lake, a par 3 golf course, a beach, woodlands, gardens and numerous activities on site including tennis, croquet, outdoor heated swimming pool & Canadia Hot Tub which overlokks the Atlantic (summer months), fly-fishing, canoeing and more. Renvyle House is also well known for it’s good food and this is as much due to the locally sourced fresh produce (lamb, fish, vegetables and herbs from our own garden) as to Tim O’Sullivan’s expertise in the kitchen (Tim is our award winning Executive Chef). Renvyle House always has a warm welcome guaranteed for every guest. ... more less
