Castle Hotel

It's very hard to describe the castle hotel and it's staff without visiting the place for urself and see how perfectly well it is run and how friendly and welcoming the staff are. We decided to stay at the hotel after Laura had stayed a night with her family and came back with great reviews about the place and what a great choice we made, once announcing our intention of using hotel as our reception and getting the tour we cudnt wait to start organising the big day with vicki the wedding coordinator, it was such a pleasure dealing with her always there if we had any queries or silly questions nothing was a burden the planning was straight forward with vickis knowledge made our day more enjoyable knowing everything was ready for action wen we arrived, the day itself went so smoothly check in was done it record time the choice of canapies and drinks on arrival wer amazing and never ran short the staff wer all in great form mingling with guests getting to know them so friendly, dinner wel what can I say I'm keeping that a secret because it is something you have to sample yourself its a hidden jem like the hotel itself. Surrounding areas for photos are great aswel. It's like vicki is part of your wedding with her great help and ideas and very willing to change anything around to suit you, which was great to hear and no idea we wanted was refused. All our guests wer delighted with the hotel and some have returned since and no doubt more wil aswel. Don't book anywhere without paying this place a visit you will be pleasantly surprised

A Perfect Wedding

I am from Louisiana and I decided to have my wedding at St. Finbar's Oratory in Gougane Barra, Ireland. We had our wedding reception at the Castle Hotel and it better than I could have ever imagined. Now most would expect planning a wedding in a another country would be difficult, but the Castle Hotel made it a breeze. Vicki Wray of the Castle Hotel truly did go above and beyond as well as the rest of the staff and made our wedding experience a night we will never forget. Words cannot express how grateful and pleased I am that I chose to have my wedding at the Castle Hotel. The food was amazing and there was endless amounts of it as well as the liquor! The reception set up was gorgeous and we even had use of the pub in the hotel where we had a band play for our wedding. The bridal suite is hands down beautiful and completely romantic, my photographer even did bridal photos in the room because it was so lovely. Vicki Wray was so helpful she was there every step of the way and had recommendations for everything we may require. I wish I could say more but you really need to experience the magic yourself and fall in love with the experience.
