We had our wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel on New Years Eve 2022 and we truly had the best day. Alan, our wedding coordinator was so helpful from our first meeting, always on hand to answer any questions and on the day he really pulled out all the stops. The food was amazing. The staff were very

We had the most amazing wedding day. Having checked out other Hotels and premises, including having a Marquee in our local on the Island where we both live, we knew The Kenmare Bay Hotel was for us. From our first phone call with Alan in October 2021 to our wedding day in September, there was

nothing too big or too small for him and his team. Every phone called answered, every email replied to, no matter how trivial. They were on hand with tips, local suppliers, timings etc. Their wedding package was amazing, it fitted every budget, every dietary requirement, nothing was impossible. All the decor in the ceremony room was done, right down to the floral spray for the candles, which was a lovely surprise when we went the day before our wedding to check things over, with bouquets in hand to make one. Those flowers filled my flower girl bouquets instead. Carlo, their driver of their car, who came to collect me (Alan said it would be the first time they needed to take a ferry to collect a bride), was amazing. He had myself, my son who was giving me away and my daughter who was my chief bridesmaid(we travelled together) all very relaxed, so much so I was doing my daily wordle on my way over. No nerves to show. The wedding itself was a truly wonderful occasion. Every detail exact, as it should be. The food was divine, and so said all our guests, the wine was flowing, the entire staff were out on their own, pure perfection, nothing was too much for any of them. Sile was on hand with safety pins when I had a mild dress malfunction. The rooms were perfect on the night, and all that excellent treatment was just the same the following they. They even had everything packed up, ready for us to take. Hand on my heart we can not sell the Kenmare Bay Hotel enough, our day was perfect, we had the most wonderful experience and delightful day in The Kenmare Bay Hotel.
Thank you all

We absolutely 100% recommend Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort. We worked with Alan, and he was brilliant from start to finish. We booked during Covid, and Alan did a video call tour with us of the hotel. We got such a great vibe from the very beginning. We didn’t get that from any other venue, so

choosing Kenmare Bay wasn’t too difficult. The service was second to none. Alan couldn’t do enough for us. People are still talking about the food and service from the day. It was perfect. Kenmare Bay will always hold a special place in our hearts!
