Attended the wedding of a relative last weekend and the reception was held at this superb hotel complex.We stayed overnight before the wedding and for two nights afterwards.
As mentioned in other revierws the complex is laid out like a small village consisting of houses and cottages overlloking the Coolbawn marina. As we were travelling with two relatives we were allocated a house which contained two separate en suite rooms -one on the ground floor and one upstairs. There was a communal sitting room area with a CD player, a TV and a small peat furnace(not needed !)In addition there was a small garden at the back complete with a wooden deck and table and chairs. A sort of home from home!
We ate in the restaurant on the first night and while the food was good we felt it was slightly overpriced at 45 euros per person for 3 courses. Would add that the breakfast food was delicious and well cooked.
The wedding reception was held in a huge marquee which has to be seen to be believed.The food was excellent as was the service considering that 270 guests were present.
As part of the wedding "package" the guests were treated to a barbeque the night after the wedding and the food was outstanding (served up by the head chef!)
Finally, we found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and would commend them in coping so well with such a large number of guests.
Highly recommend this venue for a wedding but the only downside is that it is a bit remote -nearest shop is 10 miles away so bring plenty of essentials!
