The Ocean Sands Hotel was the most perfect venue to celebrate our wedding day. Olivia was right by our side from start to finish. She is one of the kindest and helpful women out there and we thank her from the bottom of our hearts. She would do anything for her wedding couples and pulled out all the stops for us. A special mention should also go to Stephen. They make a great team and will go that step further to make your day run smoothly. Our guests are still on about the delicious food, the friendly staff who always have a smile on their face, the stunning view of the beach, and the warm and homely atmosphere around the hotel. Thank you so much to Olivia, Stephen and all the team at the Ocean Sands for making it a day to remember.

We got married recently and had our wedding reception at The Ocean Sands Hotel. We could not have asked for a better venue to celebrate our wedding day. The Ocean Sands Hotel is like a home away from home for us, the hotel is family friendly and is the perfect location for those all important photographs on your wedding day. The service and quality of the food was absolutely exceptional. Olivia was a pleasure to deal with, her professionalism and reliability is second to none. The Ocean Sands Hotel is a 5 Star venue to celebrate your wedding day.

Olivia and the team in the Ocean Sands were fantastic for our wedding day. Even from the first meeting to start planning everything, she made the process so easy and enjoyable. On the day, the whole ceremony was held outside and Olivia, Stephen and the staff were great at setting it up and making sure it all ran smoothly. She was on hand for anything that was needed and was an invaluable asset in keeping everything running. The whole experience was so positive and I would recommend the Ocean Sands, Olivia, Stephen and the whole team to anyone for their wedding day.

We truly can't recommend this hotel enough. We have been coming here for a few years and naturally when we got engaged it was our first port of call. From the moment we booked our appointment with Olivia the hotel's absolutely AMAZING wedding coordinator we just instantly knew this was the perfect venue for our wedding by the sea. We had our magical day on the 14th of June this year and we can honestly say that it was the best day of our lives. The entire Ocean Sands management and staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming to us. Nothing was too much trouble and with the very talented, professional and caring Olivia we created the most beautiful wedding. Our guests are still talking about how delicious the food was and how excellent the service was. We had a civil ceremony there which was just stunning, the work that Olivia and staff put in was seen from the get go.. It was just a fairy tale setting with the beautiful Atlantic to be seen in the back drop. This hotel is just a home from home, any phone call or email to them was just like contacting a friend and catching up, from the ever helpful Olivia to the wonderful Lauren and the great team on reception they were all just a pleasure to deal with. Weddings can be a little stressful but we can definitely say not in our case. We wouldn't change a thing about our day. The professionalism, hospitality and timeliness of our day was second to none. We look forward to spending many more breaks away in our favourite hotel. If you're a newly engaged couple and wondering where to have a very personal and special day then The Ocean Sands Hotel in Enniscrone is the place to go. You won't find a more beautiful venue for you and your guests. Thank you so much for everything Ocean Sands Hotel, you made our dreams into reality. Siobháin & Pearse Smyth

We recently got married in The Ocean Sands hotel and cannot recommend Olivia and her team highly enough. From the moment we started planning our wedding nothing was too much of an ask. Olivia was always there to answer our questions and help in any way possible. On the day of our wedding, everything ran smoothly, the function room looked wonderful and the food was perfect! We had a lot of guests who travelled from England for the weekend and they all left with fantastic memories of Enniscrone and the wonderful service they recieved at The Ocean Sands. The newly renovated Presidential Suite looks beautiful as well. We are so grateful to Olivia and her team for all their hard work in ensuring we had the most amazing day! Thank you! Gráinne & Adam

My now wife and I booked our date two years in advance and we had an amazing day. Our wedding coordinator, Olivia, was so helpful throughout and made organising it so easy. I can’t thank them enough for their flexibility to allow us to bring our own little bits to decorate the room and complete the look we wanted. I can’t fault the day at all which is all down to Olivia and the team at Ocean Sands.

We had a wonderful day in the Ocean Sands for our wedding. Olivia couldn’t have been more helpful from the first time we met, any queries were answered promptly and she also recommended various suppliers to us. The food on the day was fabulous and the room was beautifully decorated for both the ceremony and reception. All our guests had a wonderful day. We couldn’t be any more grateful to Olivia & the staff for making our day perfect. We would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding.

The Ocean Sands Hotel was the perfect venue for our big day. The function room was decorated beautifully, the food was fantastic and pictures on Enniscrone beach just behind the hotel were amazing. We had so many compliments on how smoothly the day went, it was all down to the lovely Olivia and her team.

My wife and I got married in the Ocean Sands in November 2018. Everything was perfect, the staff were more than accmodatong, food was 100%, nothing was said wrong about it. The views overlooking the beach are amazing.

Review by
The Ocean Sands Hotel was the most Incredible venue for our wedding that we could have asked for. It was more than we had ever expected it to be. If I could give it a 100 star review I would! All of the staff were second to none and Olivia the wedding consultant is the most helpful and warm person, nothing was too much for her and I can honestly say without her our day wouldn't have been as wonderful as it was. She is a complete professional and also treats your vision with absolute respect and enthusiasm. She was always delighted to see us and couldn't wait to bring our vision to life! The venue speaks for itself, it is pure magic from top to bottom and the rooms and standard of cleanliness are excellent. The ballroom is just magical and the view from this hotel is stunning! We ate there several times in the lead up to the big day and each and every time the food and table service blew us away, after our wedding our guests kept commenting on how great the food and service was which was so important for us and a major reason we chose this venue. The value for money is also unbelieveable, our guests raved that the room rate was one of the lowest they had seen for such a great venue which meant most of our guests stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the entire weekend with us. When we were settling the bill after our wedding day my husband and I got a wonderful shock to discover how very reasonable the final bill was. For the service we had I honestly would've paid double, the value for money is incredible. We genuinely believe this venue is The best place to get married, we honestly have nothing bad or even remotely negative to say about it. My advice to any future bride and groom would be to go and see this place. Talk to Olivia. Have a meal there. Maybe even stay the night and walk the beach in the morning. I can guarantee you won't be anything but amazed. You mught even just fall in love and never want to leave. We're looking forward to our next trip back already!

Olivia andthe team at the hotel were always on hand to answer any queries. The reservations manager was so accommodating and thorough. The venue is brilliant value for money and the quality of food is their greatest selling point.Their packages encoporate a lot that other wedding venues charge extra for. The venue is located in the scenic seaside town of enniscrone which adds to its appeal. You have a amazing seaview from the hotel and function room.

We can not recommend the ocean sands enough. Olivia is just out of this world and made everything so easy for us. We had the best day thanks to Olivia everything went smooth.
Review by
Absolutely couldn’t recommend the Ocean Sands Hotel enough for a wedding. Olivia is so professional, friendly, efficient, flexible and accommodating. The food was amazing on the day, they accommodated us totally with our menu choices aswell. Any extras we wanted included wasn’t a problem. All the staff were really friendly and made us feel appreciated from the meal tasting to the wedding. We were so happy with everything and they treated us so well. They exceeded expections on the day.

We got married in the Ocean Sands on August 10th and we cannot say enough good about Olivia and all of the team throughout the whole hotel. Olivia allowed me to follow through with all of my creative ideas for the wedding day and nothing was a problem. Her speed in communicating was outstanding! The value for money for what we received was out of this world. All of our guests gave feedback that the food was amazing, along with the service and of course the beautiful setting. We also held our second night party in the hotel and they treated us like it was our wedding day all over again. We cant wait to go back to the hotel and all of our guests feel the same. Thanks to everyone xx

Olivia our wedding co-ordinator was absolutely amazing, she along with the staff of the Ocean Sands Hotel were so helpful with every detail and made our Farming Wedding theme simply superbly wonderful. The food is always 5 star all the way. We have celebrated family christenings and communions receptions in the Ocean Sands and will continue to do so due to the unwavering quality in service, hospitality and food. Totally recommend, thanks Olivia and staff for our fabulous wedding day X

What an amazing hotel, it’s like home from home ?? My husband and myself got married on 2 June and our reception was at the ocean sands, this hotel has no faults when it comes to weddings, they honestly could not do enough for us, Olivia was ? AMAZING ? this lady deserves an award for what she does, even up to the morning before our wedding we had people drop out due to sickness and bereavements, and after emailing Olivia that morning, she relaxed the situation and assured us not to worry, We are both self employed so to try and meet Olivia during the day was a no go for us, but again this was not a problem, you name the time and Olivia was there to meet you. As for the hotel, the views are spectacular, I really wanted an abroad wedding but marrying a farmer it wasn’t going to happen but this hotel made me feel just like we were away, as we ate our dinner we were looking straight out on to the beach, All of the staff were absolutely amazing, we had one guest who was staying across the road from the hotel and her baby wasn’t settled so she left the meal with the baby, a member of staff followed with her meal to assure she got her meal, now we have been to many a wedding but I have never seen any hotel do that, All I can say is if your thinking about this hotel for your wedding, book it cause you will not get the service or quality anywhere else Thanks to everyone in the hotel that made our day so special for us

I really cannot recommend the Ocean sands hotel highly enough. Olivia and all the staff were absolutely fantastic. We had lots of various requests and idea's for the day and they were all met with enthusiasm. Because of the weather we ended up changing numbers/table plans last minute but this was not a problem and Olivia could not have been more helpful. Am happy to recommend 110%!!!

We had our wedding in the Ocean Sands Hotel on 29th September 2017. From the very first time we met with our wedding planner, we knew we had made the best decision for our wedding. She listened to us and took note of every detail, from meeting to meeting she was able to remind us of the smallest detail, even if we had forgotten. We had several meetings and of course were given the afternoon for the menu tasting. The Bridal Suite was huge with a balcony. On the big day, they took care of everything. There was not one single thing that went wrong. I know to some people this must sound like an exaggeration but there’s not one single thing bad or negative that I can say. The staff are professional but friendly, the hotel is immaculate, the food is superb. To Linda and Olivia - huge thanks. If we were to do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing.

The staff at the ocean sands were so friendly, helpful and so accommodating for us and our family. Each member of staff we dealt with was so professional and no request seemed to phase them, they were only too happy to help. We had the best reception and the setting beside with the beach is beautiful - especially the morning after when you can take it all in!
Review by
Myself and my husband held our wedding reception in the Ocean Sands in July 2017. They were amazing in every way from beginning to end! Any little jobs I asked them to do (such as leave bags in rooms for guests, baskets, photo frames, etc.) were no problem. The location is simply stunning - I loved sitting at the top table, seeing all my friends and family and then the gorgeous blue sea behind them. The quality of food is excellent...and the food tasting before the wedding is an experience! Make sure you arrive with an empty stomach! Our guests loved it too, commenting on location and food but also on the staff - from reception to bar staff, we heard over and over again only good reports - and we experienced it ourselves. If I could give them 6 out of 5 I would - highly recommend!

We had our wedding here in June 2017 which was more than perfect thanks to the excellent and professional service of the team at the Ocean Sands. Everything went off without a hitch and was even better than we anticipated. Linda helped to coordinate everything in the run up to the wedding and Steve and Olivia were also brilliant making things run smoothly on the day. From beginning to end, the staff were friendly and helpful, accomodating lots of little extra touches which we wanted to personalise the big day. No extra favours were too big for the team. The food was first class, the room layout was amazing, the outdoor area was great and the setting in front of the beach and ocean was breathtaking. Our family, friends and ourselves had an absolute ball over the weekend so if you are planning a wedding or event here we can't recommend these guys enough. Thanks for the best weekend of our lives :)
Review by
Absolutely amazing from start to finish. Anything we asked for was never a problem. The staff at this hotel are A1 and could not do enough for us on the lead up to our wedding and on the day of the wedding. Special thanks to Keely and Stephen for all their hard work and dedication. The views of the sea from the function room are phenomenal. Excellent value hotel and top notch food. Best by a mile no doubt about it, the staff make you feel like your wedding in the only one, great attention to detail on everything. You won't regret booking this venue for your wedding!

From the moment we entered the Ocean Sands Hotel we knew it was the venue for us. Teresa was so easy and pleasant to deal with, she could not have been more helpful. In the run up to the wedding I was emailing her re booking rooms for people and it was never to much trouble for her. It was also fantastic value for money. The day itself was amazing, everything looked beautiful, the table names, which we had only just decided on the day before the wedding had been done to perfection and Stephen looked after us all tremendously. I highly recommend the Ocean Sands if you are looking for a beautiful, beach side wedding. I have absolutely no complains whatsoever ????????

We had our wedding reception in the Ocean Sands in July 2016 and from the early planning stages we knew we had made the right choice for our venue. Teresa, Stephen and all the staff at the Ocean Sands were so helpful and accommodating at every stage from the menu and wine selection through to preparing and decorating the function room on the day. The food, staff, service and venue were top class and we would not hesitate in recommending the Ocean Sands to any couple for their wedding reception.
Review by
Teresa was an absolute pleasure to work with from the get go , she and all the staff were amazing throughout the planning stages of our wedding and on our special day. Very family orientated and all of our guests were in love with the scenery, the fantastic food and amazing welcoming response. We would both recommend the ocean sands based on our stress free, supportive and caring service we received.

Excellent service from the planning to the big day itself. The manager and staff could not do enough for us and made great suggestions at the planning stage. They were very professional and our guests were so well looked after. The food was top quality and lots of it! Overall we cannot recommend the Ocean Sands Hotel highly enough. Many of our extended family have since returned to the hotel for a weekend away they were so impressed.
