We recently had our wedding at the Arklow Bay and we had an amazing day, everything from the start to finish was absolutely brilliant. The staff were just out of this world and the little touches added made the day extra special. Thank you so so much for helping us with everything. You helped us with every process from start to finish and made sure every detail was covered for our perfect day. The day flew by and everyone at the wedding were raving about how unbelievable the staff were. Just to name a few but Dick, Sue, Colm, Scott & Shauna and the food by Aine were just out of this world. This was the perfect venue for us and alot of it was down to everyone at Arklow Bay. Alana & James

The coordinators were just incredible. Dante kept in contact for the whole year running up to the wedding. Any changes were zero issue and she handled everything with upmost professionalism. We even had an issue with a supplier and Dante saved the day for us and found a new supplier last minute. The service was amazing on the day. The food was amazing all piping hot and our guests raved about the quality of the food. The bar staff were fun and super friendly ! Overall they made our day so perfect I just couldn't have wished for better! Dante truly is a credit to the Bay Hotel.

Everything was amazing. I stayed the night before which meant the morning was so relaxed. The gm checked in with my during breakfast as we hoping for an outdoor ceremony but the weather didn't play ball. Other than that the day ran so smoothly, the guests were very impressed by the food and how relaxed we were. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy at all times throughout the day. Would highly recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel and would easily do it all again

We had our wedding in the Arklow Bay Hotel on 18th February 2022 after postponing from August due to covid. I could not rate the hotel highly enough. The day was everything I dreamed it would be and it was down to a wonderful team in the hotel! The wedding coordinator Danté is an absolute dream, anything I asked was never too much trouble, any worries I had she put my mind at ease every time! The day was seamless, the service was spectacular and the food was outstanding as always! The room was just stunningly decorated down the finest detail, everything was perfect! The manager Dick, Danté and Colm and all the team at the Bay were on hand all day to make sure everything we needed was taken care of! There were no food delays, the bar staff also were exceptional at keeping everyone topped up with drinks all day and night! Our drinks reception was upstairs and it was stunning, everyone was talking about how great it was, it was like a little pre wedding arrival area for us all! We are so extremely grateful to everyone for making our day so so special and couldn’t thank everybody enough for their hard work and commitment to making sure we had the wedding of our dreams!

We had an amazing wedding celebration at the Arklow Bay Hotel at the end of September 2021 and it was incredible!. Everyone loved it!! The staff, specially Eimear our wedding coordinator, organised everything so well that everything went smoothly and perfectly. We were so blessed that the weather was gorgeous and we managed to have our drinks reception outside at the garden which had enough space for everyone to sit and enjoy the sun while having some drinks and listening to music. Food and decoration were also amazing. The bridal suite was lovely and beautiful to get some photoshooting before the ceremony. I could not recommend enough this hotel for a wedding or event celebration, you'll definitely be in good hands!

We had the most amazing wedding day in the Arklow Bay on 23rd September 21. Eimear was our wedding organiser and from the very get go she was so so amazing, I didn’t have to worry about a thing and she had everything planned to perfection . We had planned a church wedding however last minute we decided on civil ceremony in the Arklow Bay and they were so accommodating and made it all just so easy! They arranged all the decorations for ceremony room and it was genuinely beautiful. We were also lucky with weather and had an outside reception and it was gorgeous. Every member of staff were good fun and very helpful. Couldn’t recommend the venue enough, anything we asked was no problem and they go above and beyond.

What can we say only Thank You! From start to finish myself and James had the best day we could imagine and it wouldn’t be possible without you and your team. The location, food, drinks, staff and atmosphere was amazing. All my family and friends couldn’t complement the hotel enough, some saying best food they ever had at a wedding and complementing staff that they went above and beyond. My cousin who had canceled her wedding during Covid said it made her want to rebook her day. But honestly it was out of this world, any thing we asked for we got without a problem and you gave us the most amazing day we could imagine. Can’t thank you and the team enough I’ll be recommending anyone I know getting married to consider the Arklow Bay, you know your business and you do it so well. The only down side of the 2 days was it went so fast and we wish we could do it all over again. Not one person had more than 2 photos so just goes to show how much people were enjoying themselves that they hadn’t got their phones in their hands. I myself haven’t go one photo lol But honestly thank you so much you are a credit to the hotel and I hope they know it! Thanks

The Arklow Bay Hotel- the perfect wedding venue. We had our wedding here& I can honestly say, it was the perfect venue. From the first viewing, we felt so welcome& comfortable& knew straight away this was our perfect wedding venue. The hotel is simply stunning& so are the surrounding areas. The gardens, the lake& the sea make for breathtaking photo backgrounds. The graffiti area& the industrial background provide a more alternative atmosphere, which was perfect for us. The staff in the Arklow Bay Hotel were always so friendly, helpful& could not have been nicer. Everybody made sure we had the best weekend ever. Eimear, the hotel's wedding coordinator was such a pleasure to deal with& having around on the wedding day. She answered all of our questions& was as accommodating as possible with any requests. Eimear listened to all of our ideas& showed a genuine interest in what we wanted which translated to the perfect décor& atmosphere on the day. Thanks to Eimear we had the most magical day. All I can say about the food is that everything was amazing. The portions were generous& every single guest was full& more than happy, what more could you asked for. We couldn't have picked a better venue for our ceremony& can't wait to come back for our wedding party in the Arklow Bay Hotel next year. Thanks so much

Getting married, as everybody knows, involves a lot of planning and preparation. Organising a wedding mid – pandemic added much uncertainty and nervousness too. But for Andrew and I, choosing the Arklow Bay Hotel for our reception was the best decision. From our first encounter with the wedding co – ordinator, Eimear, and her team, we were made to feel at ease straight away. They listened to all our ideas and accommodated everything we asked for. We had the complete wedding experience, from start to finish, despite the restrictions. The surroundings are just beautiful too and this made for some fabulous photos. The day passed without a hitch and that was all down to Eimear and the team. We were treated like a King and Queen for the day. We would highly recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel for fabulous service, food and an unforgettable wedding experience.

We had our wedding in October 2020 in the Arklow Bay Hotel. Eimear and Shauna could not have been more helpful to us throughout the planning stages and on our special day. The meal was fantastic and the venue looked amazing. The staff were so helpful and the service was impeccable. We were so happy we had our wedding with them. We would highly recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel and thank them for contributing to our special day.

Wedding 20th Oct 2020
We got married 20/10/20 in the Arklow Bay Hotel and we couldn't have wished for a better day! Most of our wedding planning took place under various Covid-19 restrictions, and the hotel and staff could not have been more accommodating and flexible. We were originally due to marry on 22/10/20, but ultimately moved the big day to the 20th on just a few hours notice before further restrictions were imposed! This wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for the staff of the Arklow Bay Hotel! Eimear was amazing, she had staff called in and had everything organised right away! She even came in to arrange everything even though she was on annual leave. The venue was beautifully decorated, the staff were outstanding, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was unparalleled. Nowhere else could have competed with the day we experienced. Planning a wedding can be a stressful time (especially during a pandemic), but the Arklow Bay Hotel couldn’t have made things any easier for us. We couldn't speak more highly of the hotel itself and their staff. Absolutely exceptional from start to finish! Anything we asked for was fulfilled, no task was too great or small. We would 100% recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel, they will take care of you.

Wedding 22nd Jul 2020
We had settled on settling our date for our wedding the 22nd of July 2021 after putting it off for years, so let's go hunting for a venue. We had viewed about 6 different venues before we went to visit the Arklow bay hotel, upon arrival we both met Dick the General manager who made us both feel welcomed and brought us into the wedding show case, it was very well layed out. The wedding coordinator Eimear was talking with another couple when we arrived so Dick proceeded to talk with us about themes and colours for our big day, dates etc even went as far as to change the lighting in the room to Teal which is and was Elizabeth's ideal wedding colour. He brought us around the hotel and showed us the bridal suite, indoor and outdoor venue, for where the weddings are held if the weather allows for it which we had planned for being the 22nd of July 2021. Dick showed us the wedding menu's available to us and the packages on offer, we wanted as little hassle as possible and the more we could deligate the better, we have 2 young kids and I'm a chef so the less we have to do the better, We went for the top package (I think) ????. Basically all we had to do was source dresses, suits and rings everything else was looked after by Eimear and the crew from the Arklow Bay. So we booked the date and started the journey to the wedding we wanted and had planned in our head for years. We had continued contact the whole way through the process and then boom Global pandemic, Covid-19 landed in Ireland late January and grew to be a bride and grooms worst nightmare, we were hearing of weddings having to be cancelled and postponed until further notice and we had started to panic then. Around the middle of May we had Contin plated postponing the wedding as the Covid-19 cases where growing too fast that it looked as if we wouldn't get our big day on our 7th year anniversary of going out together. Eimear was fantastic at first we taught we could get away with reducing the numbers to 50 instead of 100 guests and we hoped it would be enough that if restrictions we're still in place we could proceed but, that was not the case we there was a full level 5 restriction in affect, so we had to postpone until 22nd of July 2022. In the end we were lucky enough that restrictions started to lift early June as cases dropped and the race was back on, after postponing the wedding by a year we got back in contact with Eimear to try go for our original date of the 22nd of July 2021, with 5 weeks to go to the big day it was going to be a push. Eimear and the crew got everything back on track to go ahead with 2021 and we where laughing we could have 50 guest but we only ended up have 37 in total which was fantastic everything on the day in the hotel went off without a single problem. We had originally planned on a outdoor wedding and the forecast was set to look good and in traditional Irish style the morning of the big day it rained ????, so we where forced to move it indoors which wasn't a problem at all the Staff got it all sorted in a matter of a few hours. Our Room was beautifully decorated and very well Laid out that all the guests could be in full view of the top table and in turn we could see everyone of our guests, we obviously hoped we could have had more guests but unfortunately with the pandemic it just wasn't an option, we had friends and family stuck in Australia and China that couldn't get home for the big day unfortunately. The food was fabulous, we had been very fussy about other venue's s due to the menus and food choices on offer as I am a chef and I also had a few chef friends on the guest lists, after our event in the hotel they gave us permission to sit out in the garden after the wedding and we light candles and about 15 of us sat there until early hours of the next morning, if ever there was a mental picture of a relaxed and comfortable wedding this was it and all thanks to Eimear, Dick and the rest of the Staff at the Arklow bay, Without them we would not of had the day we did.

No words are enough to describe our wedding at the Arklow Bay Hotel and we are so happy that we chose here as our venue. We can't thank the wonderful staff and Eimear enough for everything!! Its such a lovely hotel, the food, the rooms, the staff everything about it is just so lovely and so welcoming . From the get go nothing was ever too much trouble, anything we wanted or needed for our big day was never a problem. Eimear our wedding Coordinator was just brilliant, always on hand for whatever our needs and really went above and beyond for us! The food at our meal was second to none and everyone commented on how nice it was. We were lucky to be able to use there fabulous new refurbished ballroom, so we were delighted with that. I suppose the icing on the cake for us was being able to have our ceremony outdoors on the beautiful grounds of the Arklow Bay overlooking the lake, we really could of been anywhere in the world with the weather and sunshine we got, for September it was just amazing and the whole set up outside for the ceremony was just beautiful. Cannot fault the hotel in anyway shape or form. Amazing day from start to finish so again just like to thank all the staff, especially Eimear????

Jim and I had our wedding in the Asgard Suite at the Arklow Bay on Aug 15th 2019. We live in London so the fact that we had Eimear on the end of the phone or email made everything so much easier for us in the planning stages. Our thoughts and ideas were listened to and taken on board but more importantly stuff we did not even think about was presented to us in a friendly and thoughtful manner. On the day itself everything was perfect. Our guests were blown away by the friendliness of all the hotel staff and by the quality of service particularly in the serving of the meal. The food was stunning and many of our guests do not live in Ireland so they were amazed at how much food there was! it was truly a perfect day due to the experience and dedication of all at the Arklow Bay.

Myself and my wife knew the moment we walked in tho the Arklow bay hotel that it was were we wanted to get married. The staff and team were wonderful. We had only booked our big day a month when we were informed that the wedding coordinator was changing and we had a new coordinator looking after us . This is where Eimear came in, we contacted her and she was so lovely. She made us feel like our big day was her main priority. She took us through a general run through of what most couples do on their day but let us know that they were very open to any creative ideas we had to make things a little different for our day. She really put our minds at rest and we knew it was definitely the right place for us. We would like to thank you again for all of your help from the day we enquired about booking our wedding, until the moment it was time for bed on our day. Nothing was ever too much for ask for, and questions were always answered super fast. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, or a better venue. The Arklow bay was the first venue that we viewed that made us feel at home , and we left with such excitement knowing that it was the venue that we wanted to get married at; It really did exceed all expectations thank you so much for all your hard work in making our wedding the best day of our lives. It would not have been possible without you all.All of our guests had a wonderful time and couldn’t praise the venue or the excellent food enough. Mr and Mrs Redmond

From our first visit to the arklow bay we fell in love with it, to the food, the views, the lake and most importantly the staff we knew we would not want to get married anywhere else. We booked our wedding 18 months before the wedding day and as any couple planning a wedding you want to be in contact with them, which was never an issue, no question was ever to big or small, the staff at the arklow bay always wanted to help any way they can. Like any wedding guests at a wedding the main things they will always remember is the food and music and craic The food was amazing, I still have guests 3 weeks later saying it to me about cleaning off their plates, If you are lucky enough to have good weather get married at the lake, you will not regret it, an amazing experience it's truly beautiful down there the way the wedding is set up, how often can you get married outside in Ireland, the room in the hotel that ceremony would be in is also beautiful lit up with candles and flowers The bay suite has been fully renovated this year and it's a gorgeous room for the reception, All in all I would recommend the arklow bay for anyone getting married it truly is an amazing hotel, from Eimear, Musa, Shauna and Dean and all the staff in the arklow bay we couldn't be more grateful for all they did to make our day one to remember.

From initial meetings to visiting wedding showcases we fell in love. The day itself took our breath away and the very special attention to detail was flawless. The whole hotel not just the wedding team deserve amazing praise. Our families from far and not so far all said and I quote 'the best wedding we have been to in for forever' We can't recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel enough, from the food and atmosphere to the hospitity and genuine care they show to their guests.

The Best Vegan Wedding Ever! Thank you so much for making our day so special and unforgettable. Your staff really went above and beyond to make sure we all had a brilliant day, and we really did! We especially want to thank your amazing sous chef Aine who created the perfect vegan menu for us. Everyone was raving about it, including all the meat eaters there (who didn’t “chicken” out)! Another special thanks has to go to our wedding coordinator Eimear who was with us every step of the way, ensuring everything was planned perfectly. We barely had to think of anything; we just enjoyed every minute of the day. We have gotten nothing but good feedback from our guests about your lovely staff who provided amazing service all day. Yet another special thanks has to go to your night porter who went so far as to drop some guests home in the early hours of the morning when they couldn’t get a taxi. There’s nothing bad we can say about The Arklow Bay Hotel. The service we received was as good as any 5 star hotel. We would recommend The Arklow Bay to anyone, especially any vegan couples out there. You’ll be sure to have one of the best days of your life for a fantastic price! - Jodi and Jade

We had our beautiful wedding reception in The Arklow Bay Hotel in May 2019, what a magical experience it was. Every detail better than the last. To say the team was helpful is an understatement, Eimear our wedding coordinator pulled out all the stops nothing was too big or too small from changing function rooms to helping choose the centre pieces, Eimear truly took the stress away from the planning. On arrival we were made feel the top priority of the from the time we drove up to the door both Eimear and Dick were there to welcome us, Dick couldn’t have been more helpful from carrying bouquets and making sure my dress didn’t drag on the ground, a true gentleman. The food was second to none, every course better than the last nothing was too big of an ask. We truly were made feel like royalty during our time at the hotel. I couldn’t recommend The Arklow Bay enough to anyone thinking of getting married there from the scenery to the food but especially the staff who are so professional, helpful and most of all kind and mannerly. Our experience for our wedding was truly magical, I wish we would do it all over again.

We got married in the Arklow Bay Hotel on the 24th of May 2019 and it was my fairytale wedding I always dreamed of. The staff are nothing short of perfect and the wedding co-ordinator Eimear is the nicest woman we have ever dealt with and she deserves all the credit. She made everything so easy and took a lot of stress of myself and my now husband. Eimear imagined everything I could have ever dreamt of and made it a reality. We cannot talk any higher of the staff, the three nights that we stayed in the hotel were fantastic and that’s down to the quality of the staff. The food is divine!! After three days we all needed to be rolled out of the hotel! The chefs prepared an award winning dish every time something came out of the kitchen, whether it was lunch, or even our wedding dinner, it was impeccable!! If anyone is unsure of where to look, the Bay definitely should be an option. Special mention to Eimear, Shauna, Derek, Dick, Laura, Alice and Cian who made such an impact on our wedding and we will be forever grateful ??

We got married in Arklow Bay hotel in April. We chose this hotel as we found it to be excellent value and the staff were so lovely when we went to their open day. Leading up to the big day our wedding coordinator Eimear couldn't have been nicer and made everything stress free for us. As we got married in the hotel itself, we didn't even need to worry about flowers or church decorations etc as the hotel organised all of this for us as part of our package. We were able to have our drinks reception outside which our guests loved as the hotel has beautiful grounds and is only a stone's throw from the beach. The actual reception itself was wonderful. The room was stunning and all of our guests raved about the food and how friendly the staff were. I would highly recommend Arklow Bay to any couple looking for a wedding venue...Thanks so much to all the staff who went out of their way to make our day so special it was greatly appreciated!!

I would highly recommend this hotel. Orla and the staff are fantastic. They were so friendly, informative and extremely helpful. From the moment we met Orla we knew we were in good hands, she’s simply amazing at her job. The staff at the hotel were so friendly and helpful, the majority of our guests commented on the polite friendly staff. The food was to die for, again all guests were raving about how good the food was, some guests said they’re were so happy that every course came out hot and not just warm. The hotel and grounds are fab also, some beautiful picturesque photo opportunities on the grounds. Guests even commented on how efficient the staff were at check in with so many arriving at the same time. We had platters of food the next day and they were fab also. I honestly could not fault anything here, it was just perfect. Well done to this hotel on having such a fabulous team of staff there.

We can not fault this hotel. We had an amazing wedding, they were very accommodating and very helpful. Orla, the wedding coordinator went above and beyond. The reception staff were amazing help the morning of, when a couple of things went wrong they assured me it would all work out and helped in fixing it. The bar staff and waiters were amazing and not one issue arose. Very professional and very nice. It was brilliant. Great quality and the food was gorgeous.

We had absolutely no faults with the arklow Bay Hotel. It was an amazing venue. We had family over from London and Scotland so the hotel gave us extra rooms at the discounted price. They accommodated to all our needs in the most professional way. They really did go above and beyond for us which made our day even more special.
