Our Wedding at The Dunloe Hotel and Gardens
We had such a special day and weekend celebrating our wedding at the Dunloe thanks to the amazing food and staff there. We could not have chosen a more perfect venue for us and all our guests raved about the hotel and many have vowed to revisit for a break in the future. The grounds of the hotel and nearby scenery provide amazing photo opportunities. Special thanks to Jason and Niamh who went over and beyond to ensure everything was perfect on the day :)Sent on 19/03/2020

A huge thanks to all at the Dunloe Hotel & Gardens for all their hard work in making our wedding day the best day of our lives. The day ran seamlessly from start to finish and our guests are still raving about the quality of both the hotel and the food. It was fantastic to see it all come together so well on the day. We were chuffed. Best wishes, Gerry & KarenSent on 20/03/2020

Five Star Wedding Venue
We fell head over heels in love with this hidden gem the first time we met Jason and immediately knew this was the venue for us and our wedding was in safe hands. Jason is so competent, knowledgeable and easy to work with. From the moment we booked to this day.In the months leading up to our big day, Jason, Niamh and Simon could not have been more helpful and accommodating, always prompt to respond to any queries. We were always made feel so special and that our wedding was unique and important to them. Our wedding menu tasting in The Grill Restaurant was an outstanding experience. Our family and friends were made feel so welcome and it truly was a home away from home. Mark and I are both lost for words on how to describe the service on the wedding day but it completely exceeded all our expectations. From early morning to late that night, both Jason and Niamh checked in with us regularly throughout the day to make sure everything was going ok for us. They were there to wish us off to the cathedral and welcome us back for the celebrations. Our guests are still commenting on how beautiful the grounds and hotel looked and most importantly how amazing the food was. We cannot complement the chef and kitchen staff enough for the quality of food that was presented. All the staff are so genuine and courteous and went above and beyond at all times. We are so grateful that everything flowed smoothly and perfectly on time, undoubtedly down to all the hard work that went on behind the scenes.Sent on 19/03/2020
We could not have asked for a better wedding day and highly recommend The Dunloe Hotel and Gardens as a five star wedding venue.
