Amazing! We cannot thank our coordinators, Elaine and Kay, and all the staff at Castlemartyr enough for the kindness, courtesy and expertise shown to make our wedding day a day to remember. Castlemartyr Resort is spectacular with beautiful gardens and the staff were so welcoming. With the beautiful hotel and grounds we chose to do our photographs on site and they turned out beautiful and it also gave us more time to spend with our guests. From the outset everyone was a pleasure to deal with, so enthusiastic and warm. Honestly, we could not have asked for a nicer, kinder and more hard working team of people to help us through our special day. The feedback from our guests was out of this world, they said the food, atmosphere and staff were amazing and they couldn’t do enough for them on the day, one thing that was so important to us I cannot recommend Castlemartyr Resort enough Shirley

I can't stress enough how much I recommend Castlemartyr. We had our wedding there a couple of weeks ago, and the day couldn't of gone more perfectly. The staff were incredibly attentive, welcoming, and helpful, at a moments notice. Jackie and her team were so facilitating, nothing was too much trouble and the welcome that our guests also received was second to none. Everyone of our gusts commented on the quality of the food, the rooms and the atention to detail from the staff. The wedding room itself was absolutely perfect. No detail was overlooked and Jackie worked tirelessly along side us to make it the most special day of our lives. If you are looking for a wedding venue I 100% recommend Castlemartyr!!!

We chose Castlemartyr Resort for our wedding as it met all the Criteria we were looking for; amazing grounds for photo opportunities, indoor and outdoor options for wedding drinks reception, stunning ballroom, spacious rooms, beautiful decor, top class service and of course a golf course! When we started our wedding venue hunt, near the top of the checklist was that the venue needed have options for self catering as over 50% of our wedding guests were travelling from abroad. This meant that guests could stay for a whole weekend and enjoy a trip away. The self catering lodges were great value for money and all our guests commented how happy they were with the accomodation options. From the moment we arrived the day before the wedding the staff were amazing and could not do enough for you. Everything is seamless and they accommodate any request you have with ease. Danielle was so helpful from the moment we arrived, she goes above and beyond to make sure everything is covered. Also big thanks to Kay for making sure the service at dinner and the evening reception ran perfectly. We would not hesitate to recommend Castlemartyr as a wedding venue for a weekend event!

Castlemarytr Resort was the first and only hotel we viewed prior to booking our wedding. We knew nothing else would compare. We were extremely fortunate to have Jackie Day as our wedding planner. Jackie was hands on from start to finish. Going above and beyond was a regularly occurrence. We visited the hotel regularly on the build up to the wedding and we would always comment on how friendly and professional the staff were. I stayed in the hotels presidential suite the night before the wedding an unexpected surprise. The experience exceeded all my expectations. Our guests still talk about the beautiful food and the hotel itself this is all true however it was the staff that made our day. A truelly magical place with the most amazing team of people. I would highly recommend Castlemarytr Resort.

3wks later and we still can't find the words to express our gratitude towards the amazing team at Castlemartyr. We couldn't speak more highly of the venue, the staff, the food, everything! Jackie Day and Trevor Sheehan steal the show when it comes to looking after you and ensuring every last detail is taken care of. Brendan Comerford, the general manager excels in his role and is an absolute gentleman to deal with. We honestly can't say one bad word about our entire experience with Castlemartyr. They made planning a wedding too easy! We look forward to staying here for many years to come....with the first trip already booked for next month!

Our wedding as Castlemartyr was the best experience I could have ever imagined. They went above and beyond in every way possible in making our day, and our entire stay in Castlemartyr absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend getting married in Castlemartyr as I truly don't believe that anyone could plan and execute a wedding as well as they do. Even the smallest of details were carried out to perfection. Our wedding flowers were transported to our second-day venue without us even having to ask. They seemed to preempt the questions and problems that could arise before they ever did. It was a truely exceptional service.
Review by
The service was 5 star, with exceptional attention to detail. Jackie Day looked after us so well, along with the staff at Castlemartyr. The hotel went above and beyond what we expected and I couldn’t recommend them enough. The staff and venue are incredible.

I do not know where to start when it comes to trying to put into words the gratitude I have for Jackie Day, Trevor and all the staff at Castlemartyr who made our wedding the most magical day of our lives! I am living in Paris, and everyone commented on how stressful it must be to plan a wedding from abroad... but thanks to the efficiency and professionalism from Jackie and her team it was not one bit stressful, in fact we had so much fun! Jackie always made time to fit in a chat when I was home, even late on Friday evenings when we were driving home from the airport. In our meetings Jackie always had lots of suggestions, tips and tricks to help ensure our day was everything we wanted and organised efficiently. Whatsmore she is funny and kind; really becoming one of the team when my mum and I would sit with her. She is extremely patient, and never minded when we changed our minds about something only gently reminding us about things we should be doing but never put any pressure with deadlines. The setting itself is just beautiful, and although we were blessed with sunshine on our day, Castlemartyr also have options to set up indoors if needed. The grounds being as extensive as they are, and stunning all over also means that your photos will be fabulous no matter where you take them and your photographer can choose the location which is best on the given day. The Capel suite dining room is beautiful. Its simple, tasteful decoration allows lots of space for each couple to add as much of a personal touch as they wish. The food itself was just delicious, all of our guests commented on how good it was. The staff are so attentive to the needs of the guests that I found out a few days later that one of my guests had a headache during dinner and went to her room to lie down. Shortly after arriving at the room the catering staff had arranged for the guest to have her meal sent to her room. It was lovely to catch up with our guests again in the private breakfast room during the late breakfast for the wedding party. The staff had even thought to bring one of our jumbo balloons down and decorate outside the breakfast door! Although it was a late night for most, all of the guests were still talking about the wonderful time they were having, the beautiful spacious rooms and their plans to go and make the most of the spa or golf facilities for a while. I cannot even imagine what time it was when the tidy up was being done after our wedding, but by morning every piece of decor and any other belongings that had been found had been carefully gathered and the porters helped us pack up three carloads. We married on Friday 3rd of August 2018. There were two more weddings in the days that followed and I am sure there are at least 2 or 3 every week of the year. The most amazing thing about Jackie and all the team at Castlemartyr is how despite all the brides they see each week, when it was my day, and from the moment I booked my wedding, I was made to feel as though we were the only couple to every get married there, as if our wedding was the only thing that mattered in the world. I am so glad that I chose Castlemartyr as my wedding venue. I look forward to visiting with my husband to relive our memories and would have no hesitation in recommending Castlemartyr to everyone!!!

The most incredible venue and the most amazing team to work with. Castlemartyr Resort provided us with everything and more than we could have imagined for our wedding day. Absolute perfection.

Amazing venue, Amazing food, Amazing attention to detail, Amazing Jackie Day (our wedding Coordinator)
Review by
From initial viewing right through to our wedding day almost two years later, Jackie and her team at Castlemartyr were outstandingly organised, professional and facilitating. With so many different elements and vendors to coordinate and organise, we never worried once about the venue or its offerings. Thankfully, all of our guests, most of whom stayed at the venue for a few days could not praise it enough. The personal service provided to each of our guests coupled with the beautifully presented rooms, grounds and facilities ensured that our wedding lived up to our high expectations. We could not recommend this venue enough.
Review by
A huge thank you to our wedding planner Jackie and all the team at Castlemartyr Resort, we had a fantastic wedding and we cannot thank Jackie enough. From start to finish it was an absolute pleasure to deal with Jackie and she was so helpful and supportive at every stage of our wedding planning, no ask was too big. We would also like to say a special thank you to Kay who managed the catering team during the wedding meal and our second day event, Kay ensured that everything ran according to plan. We would highly recommend Castlemartyr Resort as a wedding venue.

The venue: it goes without saying that the grounds and interior of the hotel are stunning and provide a wonderful atmosphere for guests and a backdrop for your photos that is second to none. A second plus to the venue itself is the Capel Suite is on the complete other side of the hotel to the hotel bar - which limits the opportunities for strangers to have a nose in at your wedding. Furthermore, the residents' bar is in the Capel Suite where you've been all evening. For a wedding like ours, where a sing-song was always going to be on the cards, this had two benefits (i) we didn't lose our crowd as people were not thrown out of the ballroom and (ii) your sing-song is not disturbing the guests in the residents' bar and the guests in the residents' bar are not disturbing your sing-song - your residents' bar is exclusive to your wedding guests. Third benefit: the hotel provides a late breakfast for wedding guests until 12 noon and this breakfast is provided in a separate room which means the loud dissection of the previous day's events is kept private with your guests. The beauty of the venue speaks for itself, however, it's the people that make your experience. From the moment we met Jackie, we knew we were in safe hands. I had been to other venues and the attitude of some wedding co-ordinators had really turned us off the venue itself. From start to finish, I could not fault the service we received from the wedding team at Castlemartyr. There truly was nothing that could not be done for us. Absolutely nothing was a problem. When we could not decide on a starter or dessert, we were given a second tasting. When I wondered how my 88-year-old grandmother would make the walk from the reception to the Capel Suite, Jackie organised a golf buggy to transport her - which she LOVED. Jackie helped us with every request to put our personal stamp on the day. Nothing we said and no idea we had was forgotten. In fact Jackie did our wedding thinking for us in the last week when our brains were over-run with all the last-minute jobs. She was also very patient with us as we agonised over details up to the day before in some instances. The day itself was flawless. We received a warm welcome from Jackie and Brendan on arrival, the drinks reception set-up was exceptionally aesthetically pleasing with the complimentary sangria being the piece de resistance. The quality of the food was second to none. Our guests raved about dinner and the finesse with which it was served. We were looked after exceptionally well by the catering team with Kay at their helm. We were kept in the loop at all times about the beverages that we were covering which allowed us to control our budget as we saw fit. Both Jackie and Kay went above and beyond, doing little jobs that we could not get around to ourselves as we were enjoying the day with our guests. A lot of couples don't realise until the day after the wedding that the logistics of the wedding continue the day after. At 4am in the morning, Kayleigh was present collecting, according to her list, every little bit of the decor which we had provided. Everything belonging to us was packed carefully and gathered in a little room which allowed for a smooth check-out with no running around looking for everything. The porters treated our belongings with care and made as many trips as were necessary to help us pack up our car. Our flowers had been kept to adorn the private breakfast room and were available for us to distribute to guests as we wished. Separate from the wedding itself, staying in the hotel was an absolute pleasure. Not one member of staff could be faulted, they were each and every one a joy. On check-out, somebody stopped what they were doing to ask if they could help me with bags. I honestly can't praise the hotel staff highly enough. It was from the moment we arrived, what can only be described as a wonderful experience. There are presumably weddings taking place at the Resort two to three times a week and this shows in the experience and professionalism of the staff in the planning and preparation of the day. However, on the day, we were made to feel as though we were the only couple who had ever got married here, the sole focus. We are so glad to live near the resort so that we can come and relive our wonderful memories whenever the mood takes us!

It's been just over two months since our wedding in the Castlemartyr Resort. On reflection we thoroughly had an amazing day. The food was incredible, we got a lot of complements from the guests on the quality, service and variation on the menu. In the lead up to the wedding the staff mainly Jackie could not have been better in helping us plan the day. She was always very responsive, has great attention to detail and was really pleasant to deal with. The venue itself was perfect. Blending the old with the new, we felt the venue gave us the best of both. There's a nice flow to the place from the reception entrance with the adjacent terrace to the modern main ballroom.

We had our wedding last month in Castlemartyr and I can only say that they were exceptional. Jackie Day is the wedding coorindator that we dealt with and she is absolutely fantastic. I really would recommend Castlemartyr as a wedding venue.

We would highly recommend Castlemartyr having had our wedding there earlier this year. Sian and the team were absolutely amazing and so professional throughout the entire process. The venue itself it absolutely beautiful and ideal if you would like your guests to have the option to stay onsite and have the full day under one roof. The food is absolutely delicious and plenty of it. The staff really went over and above to make sure everything ran smoothly and really think of everything. We also really loved having a private breakfast in the hotel the following morning for any guests in the hotel. Thanks again!

Our experience with Castlemartyr resort was very positive, we found their staff very helpful and supportive as we organised our wedding from abroad. They were at hand with advise and guidance when we needed it. They were flexible when it came it our tasting as our availability was so limited. The whole experience was very personal and tailored. I can’t recommend this hotel more, the quality of the food and service are certainly five star.

Couldn't recommend Jackie and her team in Castlematyr enough. They made planning the wedding easy, fun and enjoyable. The day itself was amazing everyone had a ball. We loved every minute of it.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Róisín and Thomas, we are so delighted that you all enjoyed your wedding so much! The Capel Suite looked so lovely for your ceremony especially with your cream carpet runner and stunning flowers along the aisle. I can't believe how cool, calm and collected you both were on the day - it really was clear for all to see that you were going to enjoy every minute of your ceremony and all of the celebrations that followed. Your guests were lucky enough to be welcomed to your wedding with a drinks reception prior to and after your ceremony which allowed all of your guests to mingle and spend more time with you both. Of course we were busy getting the Capel Suite ready for dinner so it was important that this was undertaken swiftly - the room looked completely different for the reception with the candelabras lighting, drapes closed and the mood lighting colour changed. You both were a real pleasure to work with and I know that you will have lots of fun times ahead. Thanks again for choosing Castlemartyr for your wedding celebrations - All the very best from Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all the Team.

We had our wedding here on the 28th October 2017. On the day, our wedding co-ordinator Leila went above and beyond to ensure that we had as perfect a day as possible. Castlemartyr is a stunning venue and the hotel really knows how to make the most of its surroundings! We were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather so the drinks reception was set up in the middle of the outside and indoor areas. The drinks reception was fabulous and feedback from guests was that the drinks kept flowing and the canapés were refreshed frequently. The Capel Suite itself is a gorgeous room and Castlemartyr have new carpets and chairs which makes the room even more beautiful. The room itself has a very relaxed atmosphere which made speeches, etc., a lot less daunting. The food on the day was fantastic and again we received a lot of compliments about the quality and quantity of food! The late breakfast for guests in the morning in a private room is a wonderful idea and allows the bride and groom to get around to any guests they may have missed the day before! The guest rooms are beautiful as well. All in all, I would really rate Castlemartyr as a wedding hotel and a hotel in general! I am very much looking forward to returning for our one year anniversary!!

We were planning our wedding from Vancouver. While home for an unexpected trip we decided to stop by some hotels to have a look around and get a feel for where might be a good venue for us. From the 1st day we set foot in Castlemartyr we were greeted with a warm welcome, just hoping to have a look around and the porters happily obliged. Jackie Day our wedding coordinator, had clients, but promised a swift follow up, and sure enough a few hours later we had an email from her with details of how the wedding process works in Castlemartyr and an offer to contact us via phone for any questions. Planning a wedding from afar, this is the kind of service you are looking for, someone who follows up when they say they will and provides help and support on best practices and great local suppliers. The day itself was incredible, we were able to move the drinks reception to the outside as it was a stunning day, the arrival welcome was flawless, and our guests felt well looked after and had plenty of food and drinks to keep them entertained. I had not arranged music for this portion, but at the last hour decided we wanted someone and Jackie arranged a local Pianist to come and play for the reception. It was perfect background, mingling music. We had a team of staff ready to assist as needed, extra plates of food waiting for us after we arrived, so we would not go hungry, we got a sneak peek at the chapel suite, and whisked away for a quiet drink by ourselves, so we could get a half hour to ourselves during the day. Dinner was incredible, the staff did a wonderful job setting us up for our arrival walk in, the catering for a large number of vegetarians / Coeliac's. Everything was labelled appropriately and all of the guests commented on how great the food was. Our only piece of feedback was after the desert, the transition from dinner to evening could have been a bit smoother. My husband and myself had to run around a bit to get some pieces sorted as the staff available were unsure of what to do, I think the day had run a half hour late (our fault due to pictures), so perhaps the duty manager had finished and the banqueting team were unsure of transition process. Other than that, the venue was great for a smaller wedding (we had 92) and the room still felt full when the dancing started. There was lovely evening fayre food brought on around 11.30pm, and having the residents bar in the suite was great as it kept everyone together. One of the best bits was the morning after we had a dedicated breakfast room, where all the guests gathered until 12pm and talked about the wedding, it was so relaxed and a wonderful way to spend the next morning. We thought the team there did an incredible job, we would highly recommend the venue as it is spectacular and the staff were so friendly and polite. All our guests commented on how this was one of the best wedding venues they had ever been too for food, staff and location.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Patrick and Mary, We are so very delighted to receive such a lovely review and we appreciate the time that you have taken to share your experience with other wedding couples. I know how important it is to couples that live far from the venue and we like to go the extra mile to ensure that your queries are responded to as swiftly as possible especially with the time difference between Ireland and Vancouver. You were both so very lucky to be able to enjoy the drinks reception out on the terrace to enjoy such lovely views across the formal gardens and no doubt your photographer has captured every special moment of your day - including the amazing pumpkins filled with seasonal florals. Chef is delighted to have been able to cater for all of your guests dietary requirements and that everyone enjoyed the meal so much. It certainly helped that you had provided such comprehensive details for your guests which really assisted Chef with his preparations. The food is very much an integral part of the day including the service of the Late Night Fayre so we have certainly taken your feedback on board to ensure that the transition flows smoothly when the Banqueting Manager departs for the evening. We look forward to seeing you both on your next visit so please be sure to contact me to make a booking for your 1st wedding anniversary. Fondest Regards, Jackie.

Castlemartyr Resort provided first class service for our wedding day. We're still receiving high praise for the food, venue and the staff from our guests.

Spectacular! From start to finish they were exceptional. We organised the wedding from outside Ireland, our co-ordinator was super responsive by email. On the day and afterwards we had countless guests telling us how fabulous the service was - one of the staff even loaned one of our guests his tie! Another friend had an early flight to catch and the staff arranged a car from door to door. Fantastic service, amazing staff, delicious food and a beautiful venue.

We had our wedding in Sep 2017 and we can’t thank all of the staff at castlemartyr enough for helping us planning our special day. From the planning process to the wedding day, our wedding coordinator Jackie day made everything go smoothly was very accommodating and on hand to answer any questions big/small any time of day which put our mind at ease throughout the planning. We enjoyed a family meal in franchinis the night before and the staff were very friendly and accommodating, everyone loved the food. All of our guests truly enjoyed their stay and felt very welcomed over the 3 days. It was also a bonus that the hotel is Dog friendly so we could bring our dog with us and not have to leave him in kennels for the few days. The Dog rooms are perfect just beside the capel suite so we could check on him during the night they also have a little garden off them to bring them out. The Capel suite is truly beautiful and the food was perfect. We had afternoon tea the day after for guests who may be travelling home that day and we under estimated our numbers and the hotel were so accommodating in organizing extra seating for our guests with no hassle. The Hotel and the grounds are just stunning you can’t fault rain or shine. Thank you again to Jackie and all the staff . We had such a great day and weekend, We cannot wait to come back for our anniversary stay. If you are looking for a wedding venue the castlemartyr is in a world of its own and you will not regret it.

Dear Emma and Dave, thank you so much for your wonderful feedback and we were delighted to host your 3-days of celebrations which allowed you to spend so much precious time with your nearest and dearest. I am delighted that Bob enjoyed his Garden Room - he really is a beautiful addition to your family. The Afternoon Tea was a lovely idea to gather all of your guests together to enjoy a sumptuous sweet treat before making their way home. We are all looking forward to your return and catching up with you both. Thanks again from Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all the Team.

Dear Amy, Thank you for your kind words. We were delighted to host a second Ronayne family wedding! It was our absolute pleasure to assist you with your plans.

From the first day we arrived at The Castlemartyr, 6 months before our wedding (with no appointment), Trevor dropped everything and made us feel we were the only people in the hotel. It's like you're in a bubble there. Sian helped us with all the decisions for our day, no request too big. She's very patient and extremely professional. On the day, Kay stepped up and was like my mother for the day. She was constantly making sure we were ok. All my guests were very happy with the service and food was amazing. One of my guests had attended 3 weddings this year and all in 5 star hotels in Cork. She said this was by far the best one. The Castlemartyr is a home away from home and you always fell part of the family there.

Dear Suzanne, Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted that everything went so well on the day and that the built up was so smooth - you both were a pleasure to work with! I do hope that you always consider Castlemartyr a second home and you are welcome to pop in anytime. Kind Regards Sian

We cannot thank Jackie Day and her Team enough for all their care and attention during the planning of our Wedding. CastleMartyr is a very special place which captures the intimacy of a wedding day perfectly. Our guests haven't stop complimenting the Hotel and speaking glowingly since. I would truly recommend CastleMartyr to anybody considering planning their wedding day. Cant speak highly enough of the venue truly amazing Hotel and Wedding Team.

Dear Garth and Julie, We are all delighted that Castlemartyr has proven to be a special place for you both and we loved every minute of planning all of the details for your wedding day. I know how much you both wanted to hold your wedding outside and whilst the weather was not on our side for your wedding you still had an incredible ceremony in the Capel Suite which concluded to the most fabulous archway of Camogie sticks! We very much look forward to your return and having a coffee with you. With lots of continued happiness from Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all of the team.

We recently held our Wedding in Castlemartyr Resort Cork on the 1st September 2017. From the moment we met Jackie Day and her team at Castlemartyr Resort they couldn’t have done enough for us. Nothing was too small or too big when asked. The attention to details was impeccable and every idea was welcomed and incorporated into our day. The planning process was so stress free and everything was flawless. Jackie Day liaised with all our suppliers and coordinated our wedding for the three days. The staff are absolutely brilliant with a five star attitude, so helpful and genuinely care that we got what we desired before, on the day and after. There are so many extras they did for us that was not factored in and we only realised after this had been done which made it more magical. The Ballroom was fabulous and looked amazing along with the most unbelievable delicious food I have ever tasted. All our guests were so complimentary regarding the food not just served on the day but also the next morning. The superiority of the staff on the day were 5 star, so professional and attentive.

Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Nadia and Neil, you both really felt like family to us all on the day as you made a number of visits to the hotel to meet with suppliers and to make plans for the big bag. Nadia you really could plan weddings professionally as you had so many wonderful ideas for your wedding - we loved the Pop Corn Bar and the Cigar Bar along with the fabulous Pagoda that you had installed outside the Capel Suite complete with lounge seating and a chandelier! Everything was so carefully planned and I could tell that you loved all of the hard work that you put into the big day with lots of help from Neil of course! I have the fab photo that you shared with me of yourself and Trevor hanging in the office - Trevor was delighted to receive this :) We hope that you will continue to make regular visits and hopefully these visits will be more relaxing for you and we can't wait to see you both. With all of our love Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all the team - Khan sends his best also!

From our first meeting with Jackie and Trevor upon deciding to book the Castlemartyr Resort, the attention and care they showed to us were exemplary. Jackie (our Wedding Planner) went above and beyond to accommodate our vision of the perfect day, from organizing a projector for our entrance, to ensuring the elder members of the party were transported from the reception area down to the banquet hall. She was constantly on hand if any issues (which were a rarity) emerged and was the transparency of organization was a pleasure to deal with. Trevor, the Guest Relations Manager, was on hand throughout the process to ensure any unforeseen concerns or requests we had were dealt with as soon as they arose. The attention to detail both displayed were a credit to Castlemaryr as a whole. The grounds make a phenomenal setting for wedding backdrop photographs, and while we were having our photos taken, our guests were able to relax outside in the sunshine with live music. The menu selection was fantastic, and the function hall was spacious, with excellent service again throughout the various courses. All in all, a fantastic wedding location selection for any couple thinking of booking a venue.

Dear Stephen and Heather, Thank you to you both sincerely for such a lovely review - myself and Trevor were delighted to be able to work together hand in hand throughout the preparations for your wedding. It is lovely to work with a couple from the initial tour right the way through to the day itself. I am very fortunate to work with Trevor as he really is our secret weapon and is a huge support to both our wedding couples and indeed to myself, Sian and Leila. Some live music always goes down a treat especially if your guests are lucky enough to be outside on the terrace with bubbles and canapés. We completely agree with you both that our grounds are phenomenal - having 13th century castle ruins is truly special. Lucia and all of the team in Franchinis send their best wishes and they really enjoyed looking after your rehearsal dinner. Always feel free to call in for a coffee whenever your passing we never tire of looking at wedding photos. We hope to see you all very soon from Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all of the LOVE Team x

Castlemartyr were fantastic to deal with from day 1. Constantly available to chat to about ideas etc throughout the lead up to the wedding. The venue is truly 5 star. All my guests commented on the amazing food. Yes it is a costly venue but you do receive money's worth and 5 star service

Jackie and the team in Castlemartyr made our wedding day incredibly special. It was flawless from start to finish. We cannot thank Jackie enough for making the planning process so stress free. Jackie thought of everything and we always knew that we were in such good hands. The day was seamless from our arrival to departure, every single detail was looked after and we were really able to relax and enjoy every minute of the day. Kay was also fantastic and ensured that the dinner and evening went perfectly. The food and service was amazing, also the accommodation for our guests as well as our bridal suite was out of this world. I highly recommend Castlemartyr Resort, it is a stunning wedding venue with fantastic staff.

Castlemartyr Resort Hotel gave us the wedding we’ve always dreamed of. From the first enquiry to the moment we checked out, the management and staff tailored to our every need. We can only thank them from the bottom of our hearts and would highly recommend them your special day.

From the moment we stepped foot in Castlemartyr Resort, we felt so welcomed and at home. Jackie and Trevor were absolutely amazing and we can't praise them highly enough for their professionalism, dedication and kindness to us throughout the whole planning process. They really couldn't do enough for us! In the days leading up to our wedding, I felt like Jackie was my PR, she had every detail of our wedding off and had the room set up exactly how I imagined it to be! She even put the batteries into the fairy lights. Nothing was ever a problem and every wish was fulfilled without fail. Furthermore on our wedding day, Kay ensured that everything ran smoothly and was there overseeing everything to the last detail. Every member of staff looked after our every need. Everyone commented on how they loved the food and described it as a fairytale wedding. We found it so difficult to leave the presidential suite, that we stayed 3 more days then planned! (6 in total as I got ready there too!) On the morning of the wedding, there was plenty of space for my whole family, and bridal party to relax and get ready (10 people). Looking back, it was like a dream come true!

Dear Wes and Jill, We are so pleased to hear that you both felt so at home at Castlemartyr and I know that myself and Trevor very much looked forward to seeing you during your regular visits. You were an absolute pleasure to deal with and always brought a smile to our faces with your excitement and anticipation for the big day. You had so many friends and family that I am sure that it must have been difficult for you to keep within our maximum numbers of 220 guests! I enjoyed dressing the Capel Suite for you and wanted it to look just as you had planned - the handmade heart shaped fudge with handwritten personalised thank you cards were a real labour of love on Jill's part - along with all of the DIY projects such as the blush pink table runners, hand cut wooden log slices complete with a variety of vases of flowers, candles and tea lights. Even the table numbers were prepared by Jill in keeping with the theme and amazing calligraphy! Wes you really are a lucky man! I can remember your arrival clearly with myself and Trevor doing our best to fill the air with bubbles. We look forward to your return and hope that you will always think of Castlemartyr as your second home. Lots of love from Trevor, Jackie, Kay and all of the LOVE Team x PS I nearly forget when we announced you both into the room and Wes carried Jill high into the air around all of the tables to HUGE applause...!

Pure Magic. Those are the only two words we can use to describe our experience working with Jackie and her team at Castlemartyr to create the perfect environment for all of our friends and relatives from around the world who gathered in Ireland for our three-day wedding celebration. From arrival to departure, every single detail was looked after. We spent a year and a half planning our special weekend, which was made just a tad more challenging since we live in NYC, and Jackie was there every step of the way...often times answering our frantic emails at off-hours and on weekends. She was always prompt to reply and offer her own creative ideas and suggestions. Jackie and her team worked with all of our vendors to make sure that everything during the celebrations ran smoothly. When my mother's luggage was lost by the airline, Jackie's team jumped into action and set us up with a tailor who worked through the night on tailoring an off-the-rack gown she purchased in Cork the afternoon before the wedding! When one of our guests forgot his tuxedo shoes, one person on Jackie's team, offered them his! We can't sing the team enough praises. My husband and I have traveled extensively around the world and the level of service that Jackie's team provided was above and beyond what we've experienced at some of the best hotels and resorts. Thank you Jackie, Trevor and Kay. We can't wait to visit Castlemartyr again soon!

Dear Felix and Ruben, Thank you both so very much for taking the time to write such a lovely review and we are thrilled to hear that your experience was magical. I feel like it really was very much a team effort for your wedding as we knew that your travel theme was going to be applied with the greatest of finesse. There were so many aspects of the day where you both wowed us with your kindness for your guests with the personalised welcome bags for each guest on arrival with welcome letters, local tourist information and lots of other treats. The decorations that you had gathered and shipped to Ireland were stunning and really added to the whole day. I will never forget the fleet of buses arriving and whisking every guest to your ceremony venue - all departing on time of course! Upon your return the Macchiato band played as you made your arrival to great applause and the Mexican themed canapés were served. Every aspect of the day was WOW with the airplane escort cards guiding the guests to their tables - I know that you were both happy that 'Pilot' Trevor was at hand to assist throughout your 3 days of celebrations. We thank you for choosing Castlemartyr and feel lucky to get to know you both with great fondness - we often talk about your wedding as some little details always comes to mind. We miss F&R and very much look forward to planning your next visit. With all the best from Jackie, Trevor, Kay, Barry and all the team xx Jill and her dog 'Oscar Wild' also send their regards!

We had our stunning outdoor ceremony on a beautiful summer's day on July 8, 2017 in front of the Castlemartyr castle ruins. We can't thank Danielle and her team enough for the seamless way the ceremony went and how there was transport for our bridesmaids and for my Dad and I just to make us feel extra special. They also looked after my mother, who isn't well and has to use a wheelchair, by driving her and collecting her after the ceremony, so thoughtful and so very kind to her. I was especially nervous and Danielle and Sian were so good at putting me at ease before journeying over to the ruins! The bridesmaids and I had to change our outfits as we were having a cultural theme - both Bengali and Irish - to represent both our backgrounds, and the timing and ensuring everything went smoothly before the dinner, was fantastic. All our personal touches were everywhere in the drinks reception, hallway and corridors and we were delighted at the feedback from guests. Our only criticism was during the dinner as there didnt seem to be any banquet manager on duty to liase with us so both my husband and I did have to try and track down someone to see about the microphone for speeches, and to see where our props were after dinner. This could have been an easy oversight though and the waiters and waitresses were impeccable and did everything they could for us and the young barmen couldnt do enough for us. I must add that Danielle was looking after and in attendance on the day before the wedding also for the bridesmaids and I and ensured any spa treatments or requirements were catered for also. All-in-all the service is absolutely excellent, the food and drinks were amazing, the venue is exceptional and everything we could have ever imagined as our perfect wedding day was above our families' and friends and our expectations so thank you so much to Danielle and the team, and to Trevor for the sweet touch when we were leaving with the farewell teddy bear, really put a warm smile on our faces after a fantastic weekend!!

Five star resort, five star people and five star wedding – our wedding was absolutely perfect, and we could not be more grateful to the team at Castlemartyr for everything they did to make it so. Castlemartyr was the perfect venue and all our guests are (still!) raving about the resort, the rooms, the food and the staff – it really was a spectacular weekend. We feel like Castlemartyr not only met our (admittedly, very high!) expectations, but exceeded them at every possible opportunity. There are so many little things that made the day and weekend so special - a few details in particular really spring to mind: (i) The lovely table arrangement that was set up by Jackie for Grace and her bridesmaids’ lunch on the day before. (ii) The London cab (and Trevor's performance and costume!) to take us to the church. (iii) The champagne and treats sent to the bridal suite on Saturday morning. (iv) The special send-off the whole team gave Grace and her parents on the way to the church. (v) Our own personal "Dom Perignon" waiter. (vi) Kay's attentiveness during the meal, constantly checking we were ok and even adorning Grace with a bib to protect her dress! (vii) Setting up a piano for Jeremy's "special" performance. (viii) The way in which the cheese and Tayto carts were so beautifully set out. (ix) The sandwiches kindly provided in the Knights Bar on Sunday night which were very well received! These are just a few of the extra touches that stand out. Suffice to say, our wedding was simply perfect and a dream come true for both of us and so much of that is down to the hard work of Jackie and her amazing team at Castelmartyr. We feel very lucky to have had the “A Team” (as we call Jackie, Trevor and Kay) on our weekend! Castlemartyr is obviously an exceptional venue, but it is truly the kindness and friendliness of the people working there that make it so special. We will never forget the weekend and we are eternally grateful to the whole team for all their hard work. We particularly want to thank Jackie because she really was the star of the show; she went above and beyond at every possible opportunity to help us in any way she could. She seemed to be on call 24/7 – always responding to us so quickly and with such professionalism and kindness. We know that we were probably quite demanding at times (!!) and (living in Dubai) planning a wedding from abroad is no easy task, but we had 100% faith in Jackie and she really surpassed all expectations that we could ever have had. Thank you all at Castlemartyr for making our dreams come true – we could never thank you enough and recommend Castlemartyr as a wedding venue to anyone who asks (and even those who don't!). We are already looking forward to returning to Castlemartyr for our anniversary and hopefully we will make it back sooner than that if we are in Ireland. Thank you again to the team at Castlemartyr for everything. Jeremy and Grace
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Jeremy and Grace, thank you both sincerely for taking the time to write such a lovely review which provides just a snap shot of some of the wonderful elements that combined on the day to make a truly special day for you both. We are so humbled to receive such praise and your right - it is a Team that looks after our couples and we are very fortunate to have such professionals as Trevor and Kay that we can call on to ensure that no stone goes uncovered. I need to figure out which member of the A Team I am - I'm probably 'Murcock' in all honesty!! We were all in awe when we saw Grace depart for the Church it was a very special moment and to see Grace looking so incredibly happy after receiving your gift on the morning of the wedding - you deserve so much happiness. Trevor will have his Tux and Spats ready for your return and no doubt there will be special bottle planned to mark the occasion of your first wedding anniversary celebrations. With all our love, Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all of the Team here at Castlemartyr.

Spectacular venue and superb food all organised effortlessly by Jackie Day and her team. Jackie was on hand at all times to answer any queries or questions that were raised, regardless of their triviality. All our guests raved and gave praise for food, venue, politeness of staff. A first class wedding venue and hotel. We didn't even notice the rain on the day. Thanks again Jackie
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Paula, Thank you so very much for your review and we are delighted that the arrangements went off effortlessly that is a true complement. If only we could promise no rain on the day - I'll have to ask Trevor to see what he can do about that... We were so pleased to accommodate your guests both in the hotel and in our self-catering accommodation as so many guests had travelled for your wedding. We very much enjoyed working with your both and indeed your Parents who were such a delight they really wanted the best for you on the day. Hopefully we will see you both during your next visit in the coming weeks. With lots of love, Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all the Wedding Team!

Castlemartyr truly is a 5 star resort ensuring both you as a couple, and your guests, receive a 5 star quality experience. Our wedding experience, covering every aspect of service delivery, was simply perfect. Every query was managed and responded to efficiently through a dedicated point of contact. Our most wonderful day ran seamlessly thanks to Castlemartyr's experienced team who are utterly professional in their approach while exuding a warm and friendly approach. With a large diverse seasonal menu to chose from - one is spoilt for choice. Our guests not only loved the array of fine foods but were surprised by the generosity of portions. And what a setting for those wedding photos!! We have some beautiful pictures on the grounds which are meticulously maintained. We had a magical stress free day dancing well into the wee hours and so did our guests. So delighted we chose Castlemartyr.

Dear Alison and Terry, We are so pleased that you both selected Castlemartyr for your wedding and that your guests loved the venue during your celebrations. The Capel Suite looked so lovely on the day especially with the amazing flowers dressing the candelabras - Jill also made a fab floral photo frame which no doubt captured lots of fun photos of your guests into the early hours. I took a great photo of Trevor on the day - he loves a photo opportunity or two! Hopefully we will see you both during your next visit. With lots of love, Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all the Wedding Team!

Wow, what can we say... words don't even begin to explain. What a beautiful venue we couldn't of picked a better place to have our wedding! The grounds were amazing and Jackie and the team couldn't of been more accommodating throughout the whole wedding process from the moment we booked our wedding through to the wedding day itself and post arrangements for all our guests. All our guests were amazed by the beautiful venue and constantly now still tell us how fabulous the days and service were. We will certainly be going back year on year to remember our special day! Thank you again to Castlemartyr and all their team for helping us make our day extra special we cant thank you enough! Jamie and Tom Barron.

Dear Jamie and Tom we are so thrilled to receive such a wonderful review and that the team looked after you all so well from your very first visit right up until your departure (and the challenge of fitting everything into your car when you were heading home!). You really put all of your heart and soul into all of the plans and I really loved your table numbers with photos of all of the special places that you have visited and I know that the guests enjoyed all of the bubbles that were flowing all evening. Evening the candies on your Candy Cart were chosen to coordinate with your theme. We will really look forward to catching up with you both and no doubt there will be more bubbles to celebrate many more happy occasions. See you soon, Jackie, Trevor, Kay and all of the Team x

We got married in Castlrmartyr Resort in June 2017 and they gave us the best wedding day we could ever have imagined! The location is very good, close to the coast with plenty of beautiful churches nearby providing great photo opportunities. It was a very sunny day so our drinks reception was held in the gardens and our guests loved it! We booked the in house pianist and she was fantastic. The meal and ballroom both exceeded expectations. The additional houses available on the grounds were affordable and our guests were very happy with them. The staff were very professional and from the moment we booked they were on hand to advise about any special requests - From tayto carts, to local hairdressers and dry cleaners to get the wedding dress steamed. Management were always available but never intrusive, we were advised throughout the day where we should be and what to do - so we could simply enjoy ourselves. We booked the honeymoon suite again for day 2 allowing us more time to relax and enjoy this amazing venue even more!

We immediately fell in love with Castlemartyr Resort. Sian, our wedding coordinator, was a dream to work with. No request was too big and she always made us feel very relaxed during our wedding planning process. All the staff oozed professionalism on our Big Day.

My Husband and I had the pleasure of getting married in Castlemartyr Resort in June 2017 and I am so delighted we chose it as a venue for so many reasons. We currently live in Australia but chose to get married back in Ireland. For us, securing a venue and being comfortable with a team and organiser who would look after our every need from afar while keeping us informed at all times was extremely important to us. Let's just say Jackie Day and her team at Castlemartyr were second to none in this regard. Jackie has the immense ability to make you feel you are the only Bride and Groom getting married in their venue in the year. She makes you feel uniquely special in every way. In reality I'm sure she caters for hundreds of couples over the course of the year but we never felt like we were in a larger group or in a que! Her attention to detail, professionalism, speed at responding to you, receptiveness for accepting feedback, flexibility and above all her gentle and humorous personality meant working with Jackie and her team was an absolute pleasure. She made organising a wedding from Australia a completely seamless and positive experience. I initially envisaged it to be a nightmare but was completely wrong. Jackie’s extended team were also a delight to deal with in particular Trevor at front of house, the banqueting Manager (whose name fails me) and her team. My husband and I were delighted to hear so many positive feedback and stories from our many guests, many who had travelled from afar, over the course of the weekend about how great quality the food was, the large hot portions they were served and the attentiveness of the wait staff. The size of all guest bedrooms were also very well received! Making sure our guests were well looked after was important to us so we were delighted to hear this. Finally, the grounds in Castlemartyr speak for themselves. What better setting could you have for your wedding photos. The team at the Resort do a fantastic job at maintaining these, both inside and out, at all time to ensure they are picture perfect on the day. We are lucky to now have great memories and pictures of our day taken both inside the old Manor House, around the Castle ruins and in the gardens. I would whole heartedly advise anyone to choose Castlemartyr as their wedding venue. If you are looking for a beautiful setting, an ‘A Class’ team and a uniquely special personal low stress experience then in my opinion you should look no further. I will always be grateful to Jackie and her team for giving us, our families and our friends a very special day!

Wishing you lots of happiness and great times ahead, all the best from Jackie and Kay and all the Staff at Castlemartyr Resort x

We can't thank Castlemartyr enough for helping us have our perfect wedding day. We had the most wonderful stay and all our guests had a ball. Everyone felt welcomed, relaxed and spoiled for the 3 days we stayed and that's thanks to all the wonderful staff at Castlamartyr. Danielle was so helpful in the run up too and made everything go so smoothly from the minute we arrived. No request was too much and no detail was left out. If you're looking for a wedding venue that takes a lot of the stress from your planning, we couldn't recommend Castlemartyr highly enough - they've literally thought of everything. Great for the kids that attended our wedding too, with organised babysitters and a separate meal laid on. It meant the adults could relax and the kids had an amazing time. We have so many great memories of the whole weekend and can't wait to come back for our anniversary stay. Thank you.

If your planning your big day and thinking of castlemartyr resort then go ahead and book now . We got married 2.6.17 here at Castlemartyr , from the stunning venue , the elegance that is the function room , the food from the wide variety of canapés down to the meal , mouth watering. The staff can not do enough , I got so caught up in the moment and stupidly miss placed my bag, the staff went above and beyond to get it and so they did , hidden behind a tree !!.Nothing was ever a issue or a drama and I have to thank Danielle or wedding coordinator an absolute dream to work with , so efficient and worked to helping create the most magical memorable day of our lives and for that I cannot recommend her and all staff at castlemartyr .

We got married in the Castlemartyr resort this year. We couldn't have picked a better venue. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the food was amazing and the location and setting were beautiful. The day went off without a hitch, I could relax and fully enjoy the day knowing that everything was being well looked after in the background by all the staff. Also alot of guests stayed in the self catering houses on the grounds, and were delighted with their stay. I would highly recommend this venue for your special day

Dear Andy and Clíona, Thank you for your lovely review and your kind words - it is so lovely to play a small part in your wedding day. I must say I very much enjoyed looking after you both and especially enjoyed when Clíona and her Mum would make a visit - with every visit they picked up more fab ideas. I am delighted that I even made it in your wedding slide show even if I was somewhat air borne with your beloved dog. What a gorgeous dog and so strong :) We really look forward to welcoming you back for your first wedding anniversary and hopefully you might be able to make a visit before then! With every good wish from Jackie, Trevor, Kay and the rest of the LOVE Team x

We are so thankful that we chose Castlemartyr as our wedding venue. The hotel and grounds are absolutely stunning. The Knights Bar and terrace are the perfect setting for a cocktail reception. The Capel Suite is so beautiful and the food was absolutely delicious. But it is the staff that make this venue truly special. From start to finish they made us and our guests feel so welcome and comfortable. Nothing was ever too much trouble, they even returned the groomsmen's tuxes to Cork for us! Danielle was truly incredible throughout the planning process and on the day itself. She put our minds at ease throughout the planning and nothing was ever a bother for her. Kay was fantastic and ensured the night went off without a problem. The day after our guests played golf and we had a bbq in the club house. The food there was also delicious and just what everyone needed after a late night. We will be definitely be recommending Castlemartyr to all our friends. Thank you to Danielle, Kay and all at Castlemartyr! We are excited for our next trip back there.

Castlemartyr Resort is an exceptional location for a wedding. The staff are extremely professional and accommodating. They are also friendly and easy to approach with regard to any queries or concerns which we had prior to our wedding day. Jackie Day was our Wedding Co-Ordinator and we are so grateful to her for her efficiency and her attention to detail. She ensured that we were happy at all times with how matters were progressing on the lead up to the day and on the day itself. Jackie, Kay and staff were fantastic on the day and our guests felt very comfortable and well taken care of. The food is outstanding and our guests were very impressed with the service and quality of the food. I would highly recommend Castlemartyr as a wedding venue.

Castlemartyr is set in a stunning location and absolutely lived up to all of our expectations. To say that the staff are helpful is a massive understatement. From our initial meeting with the amazing Jackie to our check out after the wedding everything went perfectly for us. Every single staff member we dealt with could not have been more helpful and engaging. Any requests or questions we had were dealt with in a very professional and friendly manner. The venue itself is beautiful and the attentiveness of the staff really enhanced this. We could not recommend Castlemartyr highly enough as everything was perfect for us and everything was made as easy as possible for us both in the run up to the wedding and also on the day itself. Special mention has to be made for Jackie Day our wonderful wedding co-ordinator. Jackie could not have been more positive and helpful if she tried and was a joy to work with throughout the planning process.

From the moment we checked in your team couldn't have been more obliging and the courtesy and professionalism they offered us and our guests and suppliers was sublime. There are a few individuals that really stood out and we would be grateful if you could please pass on our thanks to them: Leeann - at the front desk, smiled from start to finish and I am sure was sick of the sight of us by the time we departed. Any guest information we needed was no problem and taxis, flowers etc were organised within minutes. On Friday she really impressed me as I sat and watched the amount of guests she was processing through the resort single handedly like it was second nature. Jason- Porter Staff. Jason escorted a mountain of luggage, wine, props etc from last Monday when we began to move in to the resort. He must have covered a lot of mileage up and down those corridors over the weekend escorting us and our guests luggage. Nothing was a problem and whenever he spotted us he jumped straight in to help. Lucia - In Franchini's. Lucia looked after us for dinner on the Thursday night and again served Sarah and I on the Monday evening as it was all coming to an end. Her Professionalism and Friendly Service was exquisite and although she will agree I was probably a pain, requesting different wines, changing meals etc. it was done effortlessly. She is a credit to the restaurant and we look forward to hearing how she got on on her Portugal holiday when we return. Khan - In the Bar. Khan explained how he was relatively new to the resort, and looked after our drinks and singlehandedly served us on the Sunday when we sat in the living room with our remaining friends and family. Nothing was an issue and he ensured all guests were topped up at all times. We never had to go looking for anything and when serving so many guests he never once had to be reminded of our drink order. He made sure Grey Goose and Hendricks were on ice at all times. I have no doubt he will go far in the resort. Danielle - Wedding Coordinator. Danielle was a pleasure to work with. From our very first encounter 1 week after we got engaged right up to her lovely email earlier today. A true credit to the resort. We began making a wedding destination short list in April last year and Castlemartytr was only the second hotel we visited. We weren't through the front door when we knew that was it, here is where the wedding was to be. From the emails to the several trips we made throughout 2016 and earlier this year nothing was a problem and any concerns we raised were quickly sorted and put to bed. We look forward to meeting her again when we return. Kay - Manager. Our first encounter of Kay was Friday as she was frantically running around the Caple Suite ensuring all details were covered. On the Saturday she was there from start to finish ensuring all the guests were looked after and the top table was served to perfection. On Sunday, she could not have been more supportive as we requested last minute a casual meal for 30 guests. No stone was unturned and I am sure the kitchen were cursing her and us. Mother's Day all restaurants full, Large tours checking in and still Kay had us sorted within 30 minutes. The living room a perfect venue and we were able to sit and reflect on the night before until the early hours of Monday uninterrupted. A True Professional who we will never forget. Trevor - Manager. Trevor came to find us in the garden as we were enjoying our first glass of wine on Thursday. Never before has a hotel manager made a more special and lasting impression. He happily shared his mobile number and told us to call day or night if we had any questions, queries or just needed to talk things through. For the entire weekend he ensured everything was in order and anytime any the the wedding party past him he took a few minutes to gain feedback and ensure we were happy. Room lighting problems were sorted by him personally on Monday evening and he even found the time to join us on our last night for a cup of tea to hear any feedback we had. We will be sure to make him aware in advance the next time we visit and hopefully will be able to enjoy a drink with him again. The above is only the tip of the iceberg and we hope we will pass on our thanks to the rest of your team. From the Spa, Housekeeping, Maintenance, Banqueting, Restaurant, Reservations etc. no body could truly have done any more for us. The only constructive feedback I can share from the weekend, is the air conditioning in the Caple Suite should be relooked at as no matter how many times your team tried there was only two settings on or off and it was impossible to maintain one temperature. However, that fades into insignificance as for us the weekend could have not been more perfect. The Castlemartyr Resort, has become a truly special resort for us and we look forward to returning for the many years ahead.

As we drove by the golf course, via the splendid rural setting with its beautiful shimmering lake and rustic fortress ruins we instantly fell in love with the stunning Castlemartyr. With huge luxurious rooms, a relaxing Spa and modern gym facilities we had all the amenities we could want. The Knights Bar is both regal and cosy at once and easily catered for the 160 guests at our wedding. The personnel, including our wedding planner Jackie Day are beyond professional. We are indebted to them for all their help and assistance, weddings do not happen without the support of a talented team and the staff of castlemartyr are the best. The day after the wedding our guests availed of a late breakfast in the specially allocated brunch room – serving breakfast to 12:00 is god sent after an night of merriment. All in all, Castlemartyr is a must if you are considering your nuptials. A very Special thank you to Jackie Day for everything she did for us... she is just superb!

I very much hope that you will have these wonderful memories for many years to come and will be able to make an annual visit to take a walk down memory lane. It was our absolute pleasure to assist you with your plans and thanks again from all of the team we were proud to be part of your wedding day, Jackie and all of the LOVE Team

we planned our wedding from London but knew from the start we were going to have the reception at the Castlemartyr resort following a family gathering a few weeks previous. We were not disappointed. When we spoke to Trevor and told him of our plans to get married at 10am in London then fly with our guests from Heathrow to Cork on the 14.05 flight to our reception. He said they had not done this before but there would not be a problem. Danielle, Kay and their team went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly from the start. The day itself was amazing flights left on time we were met by Trevor at the airport and taken directly to the hotel where the drinks reception was well under way in the main bar. The garden room was perfect for our evening followed by a late night supper in the library. Late breakfast the following morning was greatly appreciated by everyone. Our London guests were very impressed with the friendliness of all the staff, location, venue, service,accommodation and quality of food. We would highly recommend Castlemartyr as a 5star wedding venue in Ireland. We have already booked a return visit for our first anniversary and some of our wedding guests are also joining us. Thank you to all involved for helping us have the most magical time.

We are delighted that we chose Castlemartyr as our wedding venue. Jackie Day was outstanding to deal with from the outset, by responding to all questions, giving good advice and and ensuring that we were well-organised in the lead up to, and on, the day. The beautiful interior and lovely grounds provided a wonderful setting, but was made even more special by the warm hospitality of all of the staff at Castlemartyr. All of the team were helpful and friendly over the course of the days that we stayed in the resort. Guests were very complimentary of the food and service, and the high standard of accommodation. Thank you to all of the team at Castlemartyr, and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Dear Sarahrose and Barry, Thank you very much for your lovely review and that you appreciated all of my many emails to aid you with your wedding preparations. It is easy to be organised when you both were enjoying planning your wedding so much - your guests were certainly treated to some amazing entertainment during the drinks reception. We certainly all had goose bumps hearing the Ireland Unlimited barbershop chorus perform - they were amazing and are highly recommended for any of our couples looking for something truly special. We wish you all the very best and will have a lovely room ready for your 1st wedding anniversary stay - or sooner if time allows. Happy Christmas from Jackie and all the LOVE Team!

From the moment we contacted Castlemartyr resort by email the service and care we received from the staff was amazing. The venue itself is obviously spectacular, the grounds and views are amazing, but what made our special day so outstanding was the care and attention every member of staff showed us from the first minute to the last. I cannot compliment them highly enough. Our wedding coordinator was incredible, she helped us with the day guiding us through with professionalism and care. I cannot recommend the venue and the staff highly enough. I wish we were getting married there again tomorrow! Simply outstanding

Dear Anna and Dermot, myself and Trevor and all of the team are thrilled to receive your kind words. Our Head Chef Kevin Burke and his team are so pleased that you all enjoyed a wonderful meal - our Chocolate and Raspberry Mousse with Caramel Ice Cream and Puff Pastry is certainly a wonderful dish! Anna's mum's homemade fudge and chocolate biscuit cake went down a treat with all of your guests. I am sure that we will see you both walking the grounds with the beloved pouch before your anniversary stay. Thanks again from all of the team we were proud to be part of your wedding day.

Absolutely stunning venue which was only improved by the quality and professionalism of the staff.

We got married in Castlematyr Resort last August and we could not have asked for a better hotel and staff. The day went off seamlessly and during our stay we were made to feel very much at home, I know my wife was very impressed with how organised they were and it took a lot of stress in the lead up to the big day. Jackie Day was an excellent coordinator and would highly recommend the place to anybody for their big day.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear John - great to hear from you and I am delighted that Tara was pleased with our help and support in assisting you with the arrangements for your special day. I know that when you both live so far away that it would be important to give you both as much help as possible. I know that the Singing Waiters went down a storm towards the end of dinner. It was our absolute pleasure to get to know you both and indeed your families all of which played a big part of your day. Myself and all of the team are so looking forward to seeing you again and feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance over the coming years. Again thanks very much and many congratulations, Jackie and the LOVE Team. Trevor sends his regards also.

Planning a wedding comes with many stresses and the job is an even bigger task when you are organising a wedding abroad. Castlemartyr Resort was our first choice of venue and from the moment we saw it, we knew it was perfect for our wedding. We had to make some last minute changes to our wedding 48 hours before the wedding. We were due to get married in a church, however, due to an injury, everything had to change at the last minute. The wedding executive, alongside her team, worked hard over the hours leading up to our wedding to make everything perfect. The staff here are professional, friendly and so helpful. They created the perfect day for us and our guests and without a doubt our wedding will be one remembered by everyone that attended for years to come.

I look forward to seeing you again hopefully in the near future and to welcome you back for your 1st anniversary. Many thanks again for your lovely review. Take care Danielle Murrihy and all the team.

Everything from start to finish from the hotel was amazing. We live in the US but Jackie Day eliminated and made easy everything that goes with planning a wedding from abroad, Jackie is amazing and we are so grateful for all her help. The entire staff at the hotel went out of their way the entire weekend to make our wedding day special and to make sure everything went according to plan. All our visitors from the US were blown away by the service and hospitality.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Fara and Sean, Thanks so very much for your feedback and it so wonderful to hear that all of our team were at hand to offer help and support. It was wonderful to see both sets of families enjoying the Irish hospitality and hopefully some of your guests from the US may return again for another occasion. Fara you looked amazing on the day and you exuded so much happiness that was clear to see by all. I know that Sean wanted 'The Boss' to have a truly special day so we are so pleased that everything went according to plan. I know that all of the children had a great timing enjoying the toys, candy and teddy bear chocolate lollipops that you had thoughtfully supplies for the kids table. We were very fortunate to host your day and very much look forward to seeing you both in the near future. Our fondest wishes, Jackie, Cathal, Trevor and all the Team x

We loved everything about our wedding weekend at Castlemartyr! The service was fantastic from start to finish. Danielle was superb as our wedding planner and all of the staff could not do enough for us and our guests on the day. The venue is so special and we were super lucky with the weather so we got the full value of the beautiful gardens during our drinks reception. We have received so many compliments from all of our guests about Castlemartyr, they all felt like they had a mini luxury holiday! It was above and beyond our expectations and Castlemartyr will always be a very special place for us.

Jackie our wedding co-ordinator is definitely the best out there. Her attention to detail, her ability to manage and co-ordinate everything is way above par. She made our experience so special. The minute we got to the hotel for the wedding she demanded we hand everything over to her and go to relax! She was so accommodating in helping us organise our wedding from abroad. She always got back to us so quickly and went above and beyond to be helpful. She is such an asset to Castlemartyr and I would recommend her 500%!
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Marie Claire and Cormac, you are both so very kind - not sure if I can accept the mantle of best wedding co-ordinator but thank you as that is high praise indeed :) We were very fortunate to get to know you both and you certainly made the whole process fun and enjoyable for me. I loved seeing the faces of your guests as they made their way down to dinner - taking in all of the photos of your friends and family - the last one being your lovely doggie who no doubt was delighted to see you after your fab Honeymoon. Your friends at Castlemartyr all look forward to your return - Jackie, Trevor and all The Team x

You had so many special touches with an amazing customised photo booth and the most stunning photo of you both walking hand in hand along the beach. Thank you for choosing Castlemartyr and we all look forward to welcoming you back for your first wedding anniversary. Trevor and all the team send their best wishes All the best JACKIE

From the moment we made contact with Castlemartyr, we knew that this was a special place. We had heard many reviews from people about how amazing the grounds and hotel were, however, once we started emailing Jackie, the wedding coordinator, we realised how amazing the staff were. We live in New Zealand, so it was very important to us to be able to deal with someone both professional and understanding of our situation, being so far away from the venue and Ireland. Jackie made the whole process so easy, sending up to date run sheets with the days activites, along with suggestions for nearby churches, accommodation, suppliers, etc. We were able to do our menu tasting about 9 months before the wedding and this plus the accommodation was amazing. We knew then for sure that we had made the right choice. On the day of the wedding we couldn't have asked for better weather, which really made the day for us, as it meant we were able to avail of the beautiful grounds for our drinks reception and pictures. The drinks and canepes were flowing, with everyone feeling like they were being well looked after by the staff; they were really attentive with all of our guests. Once dinner was called Terrance the reception manager took over and again looked after everything with a great air of professionalism, even staying past his shift to stay and listen to the band. Jackie, Terance and all of the staff were just wonderful, extremely professional and so pleasent whenever we were dealing with them, even when just passing in the hall way. Definitely a 5 star experience.

The 12th of March 2016 was the date of our magical wedding in the luxurious Castlemartyr Hotel. It was more wonderful than we could possibly imagine and attempting to put the experience in words proves a difficult task. During October 2015 we dropped into the Castlemartyr hotel for afternoon tea. My fiancé Paul knew the hotel and all its beauty, but for me it was all new. We were fortunate to have met Rebecca and at short notice we were given a tour of the function rooms and bedrooms. The character, style history and elegance of the hotel won my heart. By the time we got to the ballroom I was completely overwhelmed and the tears began. There was no doubt in my mind we had found our venue. We contacted Jackie Day, the hotels wedding coordinator within days, and arranged another viewing, which confirmed our feelings that this was the venue. We discussed availability and were given further information as to packages available. It was wonderful, the service was without doubt first class. Jackie was an enormous support to us throughout the process, taking time to listen to our requests, help us in our final decision making and coordinate with our florist and others as needed. Family, friends, Paul and I all checked in the day before the wedding. I stayed in room number two, a suite fit for royalty with walls decorated in silk. In the excitement and without a booking on Friday evening we went late to Franchini's restaurant, here we were made to feel so welcome and special with truly beautiful food. I cannot emphasise enough just how person centred the staff were, truly lovely people. The wedding day could not have been more beautiful. The staff pulled out all the stops and the magic was felt by everyone who joined us. We were fortunate the sun was shining which allowed us wander and take photos in the magnificent vast gardens. It also facilitated time for the children to use up some of their energies. We and our guests enjoyed the drinks reception, we were served canopies and prosecco. No surprise all were delighted. The meal itself was flawless and the service superb. We took a moment during the meal to recognise how lucky we were to have this beautiful opportunity. Only two weeks after the weeding I spoke with my niece, she is 13, this was her first wedding. She told me she regularly texts her cousin to talk about the day. She said that she cried on the way home after the wedding as she didn’t want it to be over. She wished we could do it all again and there was no questioning her conviction but she was having her wedding here also. On reflection, I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to enjoy without question the best day of my life in Castlemartyr hotel.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Marie and Paul The team and I are so thrilled to read such an amazing review we are genuinely chuffed to bits that your day went so well. Rebecca sends her best wishes and we know that she is such a wonderful asset to the team and is always only to happy offer her help and assistance. Whist your niece maybe a little too young to start her wedding planning she can always make another visit to enjoy a Pony & Trap ride around the estate to a special treat of Afternoon Tea! We were glad to play a small part in your wedding celebrations and really look forward to seeing you both so that we can catch-up. Again thanks so very much Jackie and the Team

Working in hospitality, we were both very picky about what we wanted for our wedding but from the very beginning we knew that Castlemartyr was the place for us! Their attention to detail and level of service are second to none. They thought of everything and were very helpful in the run up to the wedding. On the day itself the service was excellent and felt very effortless-creating a really nice relaxing atmosphere on the day. The quality of food is excellent and I had guests tell me it was the best food they had ever had which was lovely. About 40mins before the ceremony was due to start I discovered that the hem on my dress hadn't been taken up as it was supposed to have done, resulting in my bridesmaids frantically asking reception for all the sewing kits they could give us, unbeknowst to us they called out a local seamstress to help us. That's the thing about Castlemartyr -their staff will do everything they can to make your day perfect and that's what makes them truly exceptional.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Many thanks Joanne for you for your lovely review, it was truly a pleasure to be a part of your and Daniels special day. You looked absolutely stunning walking up the aisle and your dress looked perfect despite the brilliant last minute alterations that your bridesmaids did before the seamstress arrived. We are delighted that you enjoyed your special day and look forward to seeing you again soon. Thank you again for your positive feedback. Danielle and all the team.

Castlemartyr is an amazing venue. We had a brilliant wedding and the staff went above and beyond in many ways. We had a freak storm in the days leading up to the wedding which resulted in flooding that the local area has not seen for 50 years. The staff found a passable, i.e. non flooded route to the church which resulted in 80% of our guests making it. They had also a plan B arranged in case it didnt work out with another church. Long story short, brilliant service, brilliant resort and would recommend to all.

Absolutely amazing amazing amazing from start to finish! Best weekend of our lives... From the service, the food the ambiance right through to the rooms everything was top class.

I would highly recommend newly engaged couples to consider Castlemayter Resort. Once they meet Hazel (our wedding planner) and her team, look around the grounds and sample the food they will be sold. "Amazing" is an understatement to explain our day, thank you to Hazel and her team at Castlemayter.

From the day we saw the resort to the day of the wedding, Jackie Day was in contact with us and facilitated any changes or ideas we came up with. The weather was perfect on the day of the wedding and this worked out fantastic for photos and guests sitting outside in the sunshine. We had a horse drawn carriage on the day and when we were finished with it Roy Daly took the guests on trips around the resort and everyone really enjoyed it. Everything about the day was perfect and would recommend Castlemartyr Resort because everything about the day was perfect, the venue, the staff, the food and help we received along the way from Jackie Day.

The Castlemartyr Hotel is a 5 star hotel- and we definitely received 5 star service from Jackie and her team. Our friends and family were absolutely bowled over by the staff at the Castlemartyr- in the lead up to the wedding, during the wedding and after. Everybody was made to feel so welcome (including our younger guests- our nephew being completely fussed over by the staff and being given his very own Castlemartyr teddy bear and how helpful Jackie was with arrangements for my sister who has special needs). So many of our guests commented that it was the best hotel they had ever stayed in and they couldn't wait to go back! The extra touches and the attention to detail from Jackie and her staff were extraordinary. The food was absolutely sublime and the ballroom provides an absolutely amazing setting. For 2 people who were dreading the thought of a big celebration and were full of nerves- we both actually said we would do it all over again due to the wonderful experience we received from Jackie and the team at The Castlemartyr Hotel. Added to this is that we feel absolutely blessed to have had Jackie Day as our wedding co-ordinator for our big day. From our first meeting in September 2014, she was so professional, approachable and warm. We knew straight away we loved the venue but she was also by far the best wedding co-ordinator we had come across. Her organisational skills are flawless; she is unbelievably efficient and her experience and dedication to her role was exemplary. Jackie has real passion for her job and is so personable with people. She went above and beyond the call of duty in helping us prepare for our wedding and make it such a special day for us and our guests. We had some quite particular requests and obviously had a lot to organise- considering we were planning our wedding from another country! Yet nothing was too big a job- even though there were weddings taking place either side of ours. She organised printed labels and envelopes for some advice slips we wanted placed on all tables; she arranged for the cutlery to be burnished especially before our wedding and new candles in the candelabras; she arranged for croissants and champagne to be delivered to one of the lodges I was staying in on the morning of the wedding; she was so accommodating with any last minute changes and requests. She honestly was more like a big sister and I honestly don't know how we would have organised everything without her.

There was two things we never got a 1year Anniversary gift to. Stay there which most other hotels offer and the Guinness was really bad

Beautiful venue, great food, perfect service! Organising its was easy and pleasant. Service impeccable and Everything ran smoothly on the day. There is not much room for negotiation but I wouldn't have pick anywhere else for our big day. The only thing I suggest is not to use the dry cleaning service they suggest for wedding dresses - lucky I only had the bad experience after the celebration.

Castlemartyr Resort is a stunning resort in a beautiful part of Cork. The staff were truly fantastic on the run of to our wedding and on the day itself. All our guests commented on the quality of the food-it really was top quality. You want to enjoy your wedding day and not stress about anything and the staff at Castlemartyr certainly allowed us totally relax and not worry about a thing. I would recommend Castlemartyr to anyone getting married-you will not get better anywhere else.

Had an amazing experience in Castlemartyr. we stayed for two nights, we stayed the night after the wedding with close friends and family invited to the golf club bar for food and drinks. The day of the wedding was amazing and we received the treatment you would expect from a five star resort. The food was 1st class and was promptly and professionally delivered. The staff were all very friendly and polite. The grounds are second to none and the photos we got that day (Including some bride and groom Crockett action!!!) I would have no problem recommending this venue to anyone it is worth every penny we spent, an we are looking forward to revisiting for our 1st anniversary :).

I got married in the wonderful Castlemartyr Resort last year in June. I planned my entire wedding for Melbourne, Australia and to say that my wedding went off without a hitch was an understatement. The team at Castlemartyr were absolutely fantastic. We were assigned a wedding planner/co-ordinator Sian James and she made my life so much easier and made the entire planning for our wedding from half way across the world seamless. Her attention to detail and her interaction with me throughout the wedding planning put me completely at ease about every aspect of the wedding. I can not thank her enough. Everything about Castlemartyr was amazing, we travelled from Melbourne with 60 of our 105 guests coming from Australia with most people either staying in the hotel or the self catering houses on the resort. I am from Cork and my husband is from Melbourne, we did visit Castlemartyr before booking but only once so everything was organised online. Castlemartyr is truly a fantastic resort, the atmosphere, the grounds, all the staff, the food and service are top class - thanks for the memories x

Castlemartyr is a fantastic wedding venue - beautiful location, great food and incredible staff. Jackie, our wedding coordinator, could not have been more helpful and made organising a wedding very easy for us!

We had the most fantastic wedding at Castlemartyr. From start to finish the team could not do enough for us and a special mention to our wedding coordinator Jackie who was exceptional! Our wedding was everything we imagined and more thanks to Castlemarytr and we reminisce every day!

Dear Ashlea and Craig Lovely to receive your review and it was our absolute pleasure to look after you all - we have some wonderful memories of your day as you put so much work into all of the details for your guests. It was a joy to watch Craig and his groomsmen all hard at work on the morning of the wedding hanging bunting and pom poms along with lots of lovely photos of your friends and family. We very much hope that you are both keeping well and will always look forward to your return. All the best Jackie and the Team

Castlemartyr was perfection in every way. From our first meeting with our wedding planner Jackie Day right up until we left the day after our wedding. We couldn't have asked for more

Amazing wedding venue and first class service. Jackie and the team went over and above to accommodate all our needs and I would highly recommend Castlemartyr as a wedding venue. Everything went smooth on the day even though we were an hour late to reception due to an accident on the way to the hotel. We were made to feel like the most important people for the whole weekend. We had a BBQ the next day in the golf club and once again the service and staff were first class.

Castlemartyr is my favourite hotel in Ireland and i had always dreamed of having my wedding there so felt very lucky when i was able to do so!! People still rave about our wedding, it was a really great day. A lot of our guests were travelling from overseas so We felt it was important that the venue wasn't a disappointment. The staff were amazing and so helpful with everything. They went above and beyond on the day thinking of little things that had slipped my mind. An Amazing venue with beautiful grounds and great food. A bit pricey but, I think that's to be expected with any five star hotel, and you definitely get back what you pay for.

Dear Catherine, thanks so much for your lovely review and we certainly were thrilled to host your wedding and to meet all of your friends and family especially your family who had travelled so far. We very much hope that the team will be able to host another special day for you all - our special regards to John and Aksel. Regards JACKIE

Jackie Day was stellar. No other word to describe her. Ever professional and responsive, she covered all of the details and was able to plan everything and assist with vendors as we were planning our wedding from New York. On the day, I even received a manicure on the house in my suite when someone heard the polish was smeared. I cannot say enough about the professional staff, the gorgeous meal, and how elegant the venue was that day. Still getting compliments two years later!

Great venue for us, we had a ball!

We had the most amazing day on Saturday. We couldn't have been happier with Castlemartyr. The food was just top notch. The staff were extremely nice and attentive at all times. The champagne and wine were flowing and we have received great feedback from all our guests. The sun came out so this enabled everyone to enjoy the beautiful gardens which are so impressive. The children were kept entertained playing croquet and ball. The function room itself was exquisite. Although we had a lot of guests, we felt everyone was comfortable. Jackie thanks so much from Kevin and I. We really thought the day was incredible and are so delighted with how everything went. Please pass on our thanks to all the waiting staff and in particular, the chef. He did an amazing job. Talk to you soon,

August 2014 I am sure you are busy with a wedding today but we just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team. You were all brilliant. We absolutely loved every minute of our day and choosing castlemartyr was definitely the best decision we made in terms of organising the wedding. We are already excited about our return visit next year. We will definitely be in to visit in the meantime for lunch/dinner and drinks as we cant get enough of the place. Thank you again for all your hard work. You were so meticulous and organised and made the planning so easy. Best Wishes

I wanted to write and thank you for the most wonderful wedding weekend at Castlemartyr. We had the most wonderful weekend from start to finish. I was so glad that myself and Pat managed to meet you briefly way back in December 2012, we were only engaged a few days but I knew that one of the most important things to sort out before we flew back to Australia would be our wedding venue. You put us both at ease from the very start and I knew that liaising with you from Australia wouldn’t be a problem. You responded to all our mine and mum's queries very promptly leaving me in no doubt that you and the Castlemartyr staff had everything under control. Everyone was so impressed with the venue, the service, the food and the friendliness of the staff. People commented that it really felt like a destination wedding! It was really great for so many of Mum and Dad’s family to see Cork and Cork hospitality at its best. I have received so many compliments on the day and in the weeks that have followed. I am so glad you managed to catch up with Mum last week and I’m sure Mum also gave a glowing report… our only complaint is that it was all over too quick! All the best to you Jackie and your staff and thank you again for making our day so lovely and for creating such happy memories for us.

Finally, a most sincere thank you for all your help along the way we had a fantastic wedding and lovely relaxing day on Sunday. Can you also thank all of the staff, Barry, Clare, Trevor, Martin etc,etc, so many more whose names I don't know, they all did a fantastic job. Again, please thank Brian for a wonderfully well run Resort, he should be very proud. The newly married couple are in situ in Hotel Europe in Killarney enjoying the wind down. Looking forward to seeing you in the future. Kind regards,

I am writing on behalf of Marie and myself to thank you, Barry, Clare, Cathal, Trevor, Martin and those members of staff whose names we don't know but who contributed enormously to make Gemma and Ian's wedding day a most memorable one. We feel privileged to have had the benefit of your services in the overall planning and execution of their most perfect day, something we will always treasure. The professionalism of the entire team in ensuring that nothing was to big to ask for and their courtesy was exemplary. From the moment of the newly married couples arrival, to their departure was something to behold. I am only sorry that we don't have the opportunity to have another fantastic wedding reception there as that was our last daughter to get married, our other daughters wedding was also held there last year, this made our decision to have Gemma's wedding there very easy. Finally, our thanks to Brian O' Herlihy who responded to our request. Brian should be very proud of the entire team at the Resort and we wish all of you the very best for the future. We would also highly recommend your venue to any family or couples who are planning a wedding celebration. Kind regards,

Dear Jackie, John and I wish to thank you and the team at Castlemartyr for all the help and service to make our day so special. Both us and our guests were very happy. And we will definitely come back to Castlemartyr. Thank you Jackie for all your help throughout the preparation for our wedding! Castlemartyr is the dream venue for a wedding. Best Regards,

We are back in Dublin packing up to go on honeymoon tomorrow. Before we left I wanted to send you a quick note to thank you again and to all the staff for making our wedding day so lovely and enjoyable. We truly couldn't have asked for it to go any better. We were very sad leaving the hotel after such an amazing stay. Everyone said how great the food and the service was. I will send on some photos that you may be interested in when we get them in a few months time I'm presuming. Thanks again Jackie for everything :-) Hope you have a lovely summer

Now that the dust has settled and normality returned, I would like to express my personal thanks and satisfaction with the Wedding Reception on 20th June and our two day stay in Castlemartyr. Everything went off so well - mind you, we were doubly blessed in having such a beautiful weekend. One just has to take whatever weather comes, but having a fine sunny day does make such a difference. Anyway, back to Castlemartyr. You could not have done more for Aoife and Brian and I know they enjoyed their day and were able to relax completely while knowing that the excellent staff were absolutely on top of everything. We all enjoyed ourselves. All in all, it certainly was a most memorable occasion for us. Thank you so much. Kind regards and many thanks again.

Hi Jackie Apologies for the delay in sending this email - we're on holidays at the moment and internet coverage is a bit sporadic! We just wanted to send you a short note to thank you so much for everything you did for the wedding over the last 2 years. The day went off without a hitch and everybody including ourselves had a fantastic weekend from start to finish. It went so well I think a couple of our engaged friends may be back to enquire about having their wedding there! Thank you again for everything.

We had our wedding at Castlemartyr resort on the 16th April 2011 and are blown away at how good the hotel and staff are. 5 star is not good enough for them, I would award them more and I say that in true honesty. We searched the UK and Ireland including K Club and Adare Manor etc and chose Castlemartyr Resort for many reasons including the overall hotel luxury, the reception room (amazing...those chandeliers!), the bedrooms which are all of the highest standard and finally and most importantly the staff - Sian the wedding coordinator is excellent. Nowhere in the world would you find better, they are a credit to Ireland's hotel industry. Attention to detail on the day in all our needs was excellent. The whole day and weekend was perfect, nothing went wrong and everyone loved it! We cannot recommend it highly enough not only for a wedding but just to see it, worth every penny (wonderful whiskey collection!!). We have so many great memories. There is a trailer of our wedding on SMART VIDEOs website which also shows the hotel. Finally, there are some beautiful churces around the location which add to the beauty. We are so happy to have chosen Castlemarty Resort, they made it perfect for us.
