Ruined our wedding day

Our experience at Garryvoe for our wedding was incredibly disappointing. Despite our initial excitement and the positive reviews we had read, we encountered numerous issues from the outset. Guests were mistakenly informed that there was no wedding scheduled for our date, we were overcharged, and our instructions were not followed – including providing free drinks to all guests without our consent.

To make matters worse, despite being assured that music could play until 4 am, it was abruptly turned off at 1 am, disrupting the celebration. This not only marred our special day but also impacted the experience of guests who had traveled from abroad to be with us.

Perhaps most frustrating was the lack of apology or accountability from Kevin, the manager, for the myriad of problems we faced. Instead, we found ourselves repeatedly reaching out via emails and calls to resolve issues that should never have occurred in the first place.

Overall, our wedding experience at Garryvoe fell far short of our expectations, leaving us deeply disappointed and wishing for a more seamless and enjoyable celebration.

The Perfect Wedding Venue

We were recently married in the Garryvoe Hotel and I could not praise the hotel enough!! It is the perfect venue from start to finish. From the very first day we viewed the hotel until our Wedding Day the service we received was just fantastic!!
The ballroom is just wow and all the staff are so friendly, nothing was too much trouble. And that bridal suite was some views, great for pictures too!!
It goes without saying, the food & service was beyond amazing, so much so we've gone back several times for family occasions and Sunday Lunch too!!
I would highly recommend the Garryvoe Hotel to everyone looking for the perfect Wedding Venue!!

Bride and Groom

This event was a very big project and not once did we feel under pressure – we were able to enjoy the whole project from the moment we started working with Andrezj and his team until the moment we left the venue after our big day

Wedding Guest

I attended a wedding in your hotel and was very impressed with the attention to detail of the food and service from all the staff on duty. If I ever need to organise a party in an hotel I know just the place. A lot of the wedding guests stayed at the hotel and all their comments were how much they had enjoyed the rooms and service. As I live in near Cork I could go home after the event ,but maybe I should have stayed and enjoyed the whole experience.

My wife and I made our wedding reception at the Garryvoe Hotel. If we could go back in time and do everything again we would definitely choose this venue once more! We were thrilled that everyone did their best to ensure that our special day goes perfectly. The attention to every little detail and a smiling staff provided us and our guests a memorable night!!
All our guests absolutely loved the atmosphere of the venue and the food. As for us, we were very grateful that Andrzej accommodated our needs and special requests.
Actually, there is nothing to say except that we loved every moment of our wedding reception at the Garryvoe! We are looking forward to come back and thank everyone in person!!
