Our wedding was the 10th of November 2018. The staff in the maritime were amazing. The standard of service/ food/ bedrooms and the main function room itself was fantastic. Our guests were blown away with the quality of the food (from the canapes to the evening nibbles). The staff were so friendly and very helpful and could not do enough for us. The views from the hotel sold us this venue. Amazing overall.

We got married in the beautiful Maritime last Friday 6th April, we're from Cork city and really wanted a lovely ceremony by the beautiful Bantry Bay.. and boy did we get it!!!! This hotel has the nicest and most accommodating staff of any place we have been. Ourselves and our 120 guests were looked after so well from the minute we arrived on Thursday night until we left on Sunday.. the Windward Suite is the perfect setting for both ceremony and reception. It felt so elegant and sophisticated but also so welcoming!!! Our wedding coordinator Helen and hotel manager Fionnbar could not have done more for us, and their staff are truly exceptional and a credit to them. The food was delicious all weekend from breakfast to wedding feast to evening food. Outstanding, and all our guests agreed. The rooms were fab, we used 2 bedroom suites for our bridal and groom parties and they were fantastic, especially for children. The little touches to the bridal suite were so lovely also, and the views over the bay were breathtaking especially at night when the water was like a mirror it was so still. Bantry is magical. We went up behind the hotel to Bantry house for our photos, a beautiful location. We have 3 children and they had an absolute ball for the 3 days. The leisure centre is brill and we all had a wonderful time in the pool. We enjoyed every moment of our weekend and would recommend this hotel to everyone to go down and stay, it's really lovely. Thank you all so much. Melissa and Kevin Norberg.

Beautiful hotel with amazing food that all our guests could not stop talking about. The staff were wonderful catering to our every need on the day of the wedding and the wedding coordinator Helen and manager Fionnbar were exceptional really making our day go perfectly. We will definitely be coming back to The Maritime in the future as it now holds a very special place on our hearts.

We couldnt of asked for more help or support from our hotel. The staff were so friendly and met every expectation we had on our day and following days. Food was amazing on the day and the manager Fionnbarr made our photographer and videographer so welcome around serving. The day was so relaxed exactly the way we wanted it thanks to all staff involved in the preparation and the wedding day itself.

Helen and Finbarr were fantastic and did all they could to accommodate what we wanted to do for our wedding. The food , facilities and service were top notch. The day ran late for us due to unforeseen delays and there was no issue for Finbarr and co in being able to cope with this. I would not hesitate to recommend the Maritime to any other bride and groom. All the best.

The Maritime were a fantastic hotel to work with. They treated us like we were the only couple getting married that year. Fionnbarr's professionalism was second to none and every detail was just perfect. Cannot thank all the staff enough for a perfect day.
