We had an unbelievable experience with our wedding in Castlemartyr Resort. Everything about it was done with great care and the service was genuinely exceptional. Every guest we spoke to complemented the setting, the food and the staff. There was a very personal, boutique feeling to the place which is very impressive given its a 5 star resort. We could not recommend it highly enough to any couple looking for a venue for their wedding.
Having first visited Castlemartyr for a weekend in 2014 and falling in love with the venue & the amazing staff, there really was no contest when it came to choosing Castlemartyr as our wedding venue when we became engaged in 2019. Having initially booked our wedding for September 2020, Covid put paid to this and we rescheduled more than once, but we finally had the pleasure of hosting our wedding ceremony & reception at Castlemartyr Resort on Friday 01st October 2021. Our first meeting was with Elaine Mulcahy and although she is no longer with the resort she deserves a mention as we had all our dealings with Elaine up to January 2020. Then enter the ‘tour de force’ that is Jackie Day. In the months leading up to our day nothing was ever too much of an ask and at times I would feel guilty emailing Jackie – there were many emails! Planning a wedding with restrictions has put enormous stress on couples and hotels alike with so many moving parts and Jackie was wonderful to deal with at all times. Jackie is an expert in wedding co-ordination, and while I am a perfectionist, Jackie on the day was on hand at all times and thought of the little things that I forgot – coffee, prosecco, light brunch etc. brought to the bridal suite where it was very much welcomed by us all as we had an early start that morning. I know that she did so much more on the day that I didn’t see and I will be forever grateful to Jackie. We can honestly say, hand on heart, that our wedding day was the best day of our lives and it was all made possible by Jackie and the team at Castlemartyr. I even think Jackie had a say in the weather as the sun shone that day and our dream of having our ceremony outside was fulfilled (I arrived at the venue 2 days before the wedding with my chief bridesmaid and the weather was dismal, especially on the eve of the wedding). I may have planned our special day but it was the execution on the day by Jackie and the wider team that really wowed both Donnagh and I. I would have those 4 days back in a heartbeat and at Castlemartyr. Our family and friends were also treated exceptionally well that weekend, as we all travelled from Clare the majority stayed 2/3 nights, and they have all commented on the friendliness of the staff, the service, the food and the standard of accommodation. We also want to give a special mention to Kay and Trevor, who went above and beyond, not only that weekend, but also for the times before the wedding when we visited the hotel to stay or on day trips with our families to show them the venue, you both have always been so welcoming. Brendan you have built an amazing team at Castlemartyr and we wish you all continued success. Castlemartyr will always hold a very special place in our hearts, a magical place where the best of memories were made, which will be treasured always. We look forward to seeing you all again very soon. We would highly recommend Castlemartyr as a wedding venue, they are truly exceptional.
From the initial planning stages, up until the day itself, all of the team at Castlemartyr were incredibly helpful and friendly. No ask was too big; it was a pleasure to have had our wedding there and we cannot wait to return!
I cannot thank Castlemartyr resort enough and Sarah Flynn for all they did for our wedding. I provided all the decor and they set up everything to exactly how I wanted. The food, service and staff were amazing. Not one guest could fault any part of the day. Highly recommend this hotel if you want your wedding day to be so special
We had the most wonderful wedding day in Castlemartyr. From start to finish the staff couldn’t have treated us any better and everything went so perfectly on the day. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Jackie took care of every little detail and made sure our day was exactly what we wanted it to be. Her attention to detail was fantastic and she was such a great help in the lead up to the wedding as well as on the day itself. We had one change in wedding date and Jackie made sure this was never an issue for us and the change was very stress-free. I would have no hesitation is recommending Castlemartyr for a wedding venue it was exceptional.
Our wedding at the Castlemartyr Resort was everything we expected and more. The staff were so friendly and super helpful. They made sure the day ran perfectly. All of our friends and family were blown away with how the venue looked and how good the staff were.
Castlemartyr is the most fabulous venue and we are so thrilled we decided to have our wedding there. During the Covid pandemic over the last 1.5 years, the team have been so supportive and incredibly flexible in helping us to rearrange our wedding. We ended up postponing our wedding three times and with the help of Castlemartyr, the stress and worry was taken out of this for us as nothing was a problem for them and they helped us to plan around the restrictions. We cannot thank the staff enough for all their wonderful service, support and help throughout the planning of our big day, and of course for the amazing personal touches they provided on our wedding day. We were made to feel so special, all our guests were extremely well looked after and everyone is still talking about how wonderful the food, service and venue was. Thank you so much Castlemartyr for helping us to have the most special and memorable day.
We had the pleasure of hosting our wedding reception in Castlemartyr Resort on Saturday the 10th of July 2021. We had a delightful experience from our first contact with the hotel last November up until our wedding day. Our first experience with Castlemartyr Resort was with Danielle Murhilly (events management) just after we got engaged. She was extremely helpful and was genuinely excited for us as we started to plan our wedding. Danielle passed us onto their outstanding wedding planner Jackie Day in December 2020. I am slightly embarrassed to say that I exchanged 240 emails with Jackie from then until July 2021! Jackie was at all times; warm, friendly, helpful and extremely efficient! There was no request that Jackie didn’t do her utmost to fulfil. Wedding planning during Covid-19 was at times stressful but Jackie assisted us to navigate the continued changes to restrictions and guidelines! Her attention to detail shone through on the day of the wedding when our plans were executed with perfection! We had truly magical day with their wonderful staff. On the morning of the wedding the bridal party attended the spa for hair and makeup. This truly was a lovely experience and started the day with excitement and the royal treatment we continued to receive throughout our wedding day. The food was incredible and lots of guests complemented the menu after the big day. The rooms were beautiful, particularly the bridal suite (which we spend 3 nights in). We would highly recommend Castlemartyr resort as a wedding venue
The wedding coordinator Sarah along with Jackie were so attentive and nothing was a problem on the day or the lead up to the wedding. Martin in the bell tower made sure we wanted for nothing. We felt so spoilt by all the staff, in particular Rebecca and Luke. What an incredible experience. The food was devine and the manor menu had excellent choice. Couldn’t fault a thing and can’t thank Castlemartyr Resort enough for making our day so special.
We were blown away by the job Jackie and her colleagues did to deliver a wedding that was beyond our expectations. From the minute we arrived in Castelmartyr the day before our wedding every detail was looked after. The hotel staff could not have been more helpful. On the wedding day itself, the garden room (for our scaled down COVID wedding) looked like a dream. Our guests commented that the food was some of the best they had ever had at a wedding and we completely agree! We would like to give a special mention to Chris Harold, who on the night we felt went above and beyond for us. Although it was not the wedding we originally planned, Castlemartyr made sure we didn’t feel hindered by restrictions and the day felt so relaxed and special. We wouldn’t change a thing about the day and would have no hesitation in recommending Castlemartyr to family and friends.
We got married in Castlemartyr in June 2021 and had an absolutely fantastic stay start to finish. The staff could not have been more accommodating, even going as far as providing special orders for our guests. We had 25 guests in the Garden Room and it was set up so beautifully for our special day. Our son was included in many ways especially in the lead up which meant a lot to us. Everyone had a fantastic time and felt very safe. The food was amazing and our guests really enjoyed the whole experience.We could not have done it wihout the amazing help of Jackie Day, Gérard, Chris and all the team in Castlemartyr. They organised everything with very little time and the day went off without a hitch. Our drinks reception was outside in the gardens and Ciara who was serving us was so friendly and fun. We stayed for a second day and night relaxing in the gardens and taking it all in. It was such a beautiful experience for us and we couldn’t be happier. We just can’t wait to get back now!!
Myself and Colin fell where married in CastleMartyr December 2020. It was an intimate wedding (restricted to max 25 at that time) but absolutely perfect. Even though the wedding was small there was no mistaking we got the royal treatment from Jackie and all the staff at the hotel from the moment we and our family arrived. Our whole family enjoyed the day and their extended stay in the hotel. The hotel exudes a warm and friendly atmosphere, not to mention top class facilities and food, the perfect combination for an intimate wedding breakaway. No need to leave with hotel spa hair and makeup, church 2 mins away, “the village florist”, local cake makers and photographers….and not to mention resident piano player Mary who played through the evening…even some festive tunes for the little ones…..!! I would highly recommend the hotel for a wedding. Thank you to Jackie and all the staff for making our day everything we wanted, from Colin & Josephine.
I was very happy to have my wedding in the Castlemartyr hotel. Thanks very much to the wonderful team at Castlemartyr hotel for arranging everything. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly and looked after us so well. We got ready in a very spacious bridal suite which I was very happy with. We managed to have the ceremony outside and everything was beautifully set-up. The wedding decor in the Living Room and Garden Room were also lovely. We booked a spa the next day and we were allowed to check out later in the afternoon which I really appreciated. I also enjoyed the lovely breakfast. I’ll definitely go back for my one year anniversary next year.
From the moment we got engaged we knew we wanted to get married at Castlemartyr Resort. Coming over from London and visiting a number of stunning venues across Ireland, Castlemartyr stood out for two reasons: it is a truly spectacular venue and the staff were just so warm & welcoming. We were originally supposed to get married in May 2020 with 150 guests coming from all over the globe. The events team were really great in providing us with different options and showed tremendous flexibility in adapting to the needs of both our families, they worked with us to hold a smaller, more intimate wedding in September 2020. As our coordinator Jackie Day promised, it would be a “relaxed and magical family day” and it was exactly that. The big day itself was so dreamy. The ceremony was outdoors by the gardens & fountain followed by a reception & dinner in the Garden Room which was just stunning! The events team had every single detail covered and they ensured the day was completely stress free. The staff were so professional & welcoming and made our guests feel safe and comfortable. To Jackie, Kaye, Elaine, Trevor and the all the team at Castlemartyr, from the bottom of my hearts we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us leading up to & on the day of the wedding. Special thank you also to the lovely talented ladies at the Spa (Caroline & Alice) who did my bridal hair and make up, never have I had so many compliments!
We can’t thank Castlemartyr and their fantastic staff enough for the amazing effort they put in to give us an amazing wedding day. The quality, experience, and dedication of the entire team really shone through, especially with everything going on at present. From start to finish all of our guests felt very safe and comfortable, and Castlemartyr made our small intimate wedding into everything we could have hoped for. The grounds gave us the perfect setting for our photos, the Capel suite gave us a beautiful setting for our meal, and the staff delivered what we can only describe as a masterclass in customer service. We cannot commend Castlemartyr enough for everything they have done for us, and we would advise anyone looking to have a wedding to visit them.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Thank you so much Denise and David for your wonderful review and kind words. We are delighted to hear that you and your guests felt safe and comfortable throughout. Our team are humbled, but very proud regarding your ‘masterclass’ comment, but it was our pleasure to celebrate with you. Kind regards, the Wedding Team.
We had a wonderful wedding and we can’t thank the Castlemartyr Resort enough for helping make it as special as possible. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. The handling and management of the reception was outstanding. The staff friendly and supportive, the food delicious. The venue beautiful and so well kept. When we first met with the hotel in 2019 we knew we were going to be in good hands. Considering the difficulties around pandemic re-plans and restrictions we believe we were proven right. Throughout all, the hotel remained professional, understanding and as flexible as possible. A much reduced wedding in terms of number than originally planned, it became the big wonderful day we hoped for nonetheless. Couldn’t recommend the Castlemartyr Resort more.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Thank you Gemma and Jason for your lovely review. It was our pleasure to look after you and your family, and we are humbled by your kind words. We greatly look forward to welcoming you again. Kind regards, the Wedding team.
The most wonderful venue, staff and food. We felt cherished and special from the moment we arrived and Castlemartyr will forever be our special place.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Thank you for your kind words, Jane and John. We were delighted to host your celebration and we are humbled to hear that we will always be your ‘special place’. We hope to see you for a visit soon!
We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more. Not only is Castlemartyr such a stunning hotel,the staff were just amazing to deal with and always so kind and helpful. From the first day we met with them they went above and beyond to make our wedding day so special. I would highly recommend Castlemartyr Resort.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Thank you so much for your lovely comments Niamh. It was a pleasure to work with you, and the team were delighted to look after you both. I would like to wish you both the best for the future and look forward to welcoming you both back to our beautiful Resort for many years to come. Kind regards, the Wedding Team.
We got married in Castlemartyr in November 2019 and it was just a dream from start to finish. Jackie is so so lovely to deal with and we were looked after so well we can’t thank them enough. If you are thinking of Castlemartyr for your wedding venue all we can say is definitely go for it!
Cannot fault Castlemartyr. We had the most magical day and the service and food in Castlemartyr was exceptional. There were a few hiccups two nights before the wedding but I mentioned the issues and they really pulled it back on the night before the wedding and our wedding day. The reality is you can’t do the day again but I can’t imagine having had as great a day anywhere else. We have been to numerous weddings and have had a number of family weddings and in a lot of ways Castlemartyr is the same as any other hotel but for me and my husband, we felt that the service and the food on the day really sets it apart.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Thank you so much for your lovely comments Fiona and Patrick. It was a pleasure to work with you, and the events team were delighted to hear your comments on the service and food. I would like to wish you both the best for the future and look forward to welcoming you both back to our beautiful Resort for many years to come. Kind regards, the Wedding Team.
Joe and I got married in Castlemartyr Resort on Saturday October 26th. From the very minute we booked Castlemartyr as our venue, they couldn’t have been more helpful and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. As we are not from the area, the night before the wedding several of our guests descended on the resort and had a fantastic evening in the Living Room where we all enjoyed Franchinis pizzas and drinks from the hugely helpful Khan and his staff. On the wedding day itself, they went above and beyond to ensure ourselves and our guests had the most fantastic day imaginable. A special mention has to go to our fantastic coordinator Elaine, nothing was ever a problem and we always had serious laughs when we got together also, she did everything she possibly could to ensure we had a magical day and we really did!The morning of the wedding was a little crazy as our photographer double booked us, but within seconds the Castlemartyr staff were on the phones and emails trying to sort it out and left no stone unturned until we had a photographer. We had the lovely Jason drive us to and from the venue to the church and he was an absolute gentleman and really calmed the nerves. Once the crisis was averted the day was truly spectacular, the service, the food, the atmosphere just everything was amazing and that is down to the professionalism and kindness of the staff at Castlemartyr. The food was absolutely fantastic and all of our guests are still talking about it’s sheer excellence. A huge thank you to all the staff at Castlemartyr but in particular Elaine, Raouf, Kay, Donagh, Trevor and Brendan. Our wedding day exceeded all of our expectations and really was the best day of our lives. Thank you all so much! Dervla
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was a pleasure to work with you both and we really did laugh from start to finish 🙂 I would like to wish you both the best for the future and look forward to welcoming you both back to our beautiful resort for many years to come. Kind regards Elaine
We got married in Castlemartyr in October and spent the weekend there Friday – Monday. From the moment we arrived we felt like royalty. We were introduced to all of the managers and staff and they made sure we were looked after all weekend. It was literally the best weekend of our lives! Jackie Day was our wedding coordinator and nothing was ever an issue or a problem to her, she literally answered all of our questions within hours / days and always helped with suggestions and advice. She was a pleasure to deal with and so witty – a credit to Castlemartyr. On Friday we had our church rehearsal and had family and friends stay over. Jackie booked out ‘The Living Room’ for us for the evening where we had finger food and drinks. The cocktails are absolutely amazing! On the Saturday, the wedding morning, everyone was on hand to make sure we had everything we needed and went above and beyond my expectations. Breakfast, brunch, prosecco and strawberries were brought to the room for me and my bridal party. Any last minute hiccups were sorted with ease and everything was just perfect. The arrival reception provided for us and our guests was amazing; canapes, prosecco, cider punch. The evening 5-course meal was the highlight for many guests! The quality of the food was outstanding with steaks cooked absolutely perfectly. On Sunday morning, we had our own banqueting room with table service breakfast for all of our guests, where the room was ours right up until 1pm. Guests used the leisure and spa facilities, ate in the bar, and had drinks in the bar for the day. Our guests are still talking about the staff at Castlemartyr, how they were treated, and how they cannot wait to return for a future visit. Many said it was the best wedding venue they have ever been to. I cannot thank the staff at Castlemartyr enough, genuinely. It was the most perfect weekend and I think about it every day! Julie X x
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Stephen and Julie thanks for much for such a lovely review for all of the team we are thrilled that you felt like royalty all weekend. You both looked incredibly happy and both oozed Hollywood glamour – your photographer really had an easy job working with you both. It was so enjoyable working with you both on your plans and we all look forward to welcoming you back to hopefully share many more happy visits with you. With great fondness JACKIE
Myself and my husband Dave got married in Castlemartyr on 28th September this year. Jackie was our wedding coordinator and we certainly got lucky the day she replied to my email!! Jackie was our knight in shining armour. She was always on the other end of the phone or computer and I was never waiting long for a reply. She bent to manyof our requests with ease and was happy to facilitate. She was highly professional and organised and it made our day so much easier knowing she was taking care of us. She never once slipped up and I cannot say enouhj about her. She was simply, amazing. Castlemartyr was a fabulous venue. They looked after us so well, from the food to the staff to the rooms. We had the most beautiful room and both our sets of parents were put up in gorgeous set ups. My dad is in a wheelchair and it was never a hassle for them to come and collect him. We genuinely cannot praise them enough. They went above and beyond our expectations and we would recommend them to anyone.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Emma and David your both so very kind and I think the first time that I have been referred to as a Knight in Shining Armour which is high praise indeed. It is so important to us that you all enjoy your wedding with us and I am delighted that your Parents enjoyed their accommodation with us and it is great that the resort is fully accessible. Hopefully we shall see your photos very soon. All the very best JACKIE
My now husband and I had the pleasure of celebrating our wedding in Castlemartyr on the 19th of September this year. From the very beginning going down to view and discuss every detail the staff were nothing but amazing. Always so welcoming kind and professional. Every trip we had in the 18 month build up was just the highlight of our day and we always looked forward to it! The pre wedding menu tasting was beyond indulgent. We took the time to stay the night and seriously enjoyed it. We could not wait for what was ahead. On the day every guest raved about the food the quality and the service from every staff member! Huge shout out though has to go to the greatest wedding planner- Elaine! We always came away with smiles on our faces and sore sides from laughing so hard with her she is just brilliant! She had every detail organised and was always beyond professional and kind. She made our day the greatest. It felt like we were being welcomed by a friend when we arrived to Castlemartyr on the day which was so lovely. Sincere thanks to her and Kay who ensured everything went off without a hitch from that afternoon and well into to the wee hours of the morning. Look no further than this stunning location for the most elegant beautiful and timeless wedding celebration!!
Patrick and I had the most amazing wedding day at Castlemartyr Resort on 13.09.2019. Our wedding coordinator Jackie Day was fantastic, not only in terms of her professionalism but also her flair and interest in all things weddings. She kept us on track throughout the process, answering all questions and most importantly kept us cool, calm and collected throughout when any anxieties or stresses arose. Castlemartyr itself, in terms of venue was only spectacular and this was matched with great quality produce and attentive staff throughout our wedding day. Our guests too were highly complimentary of the food, which for an Irish wedding is an absolute must! We would both highly recommend Castlemartyr Resort as a top quality wedding venue.
Our wedding day could not have been more perfect. We planned our day from the US and could not have done it without our wonderful wedding coordinator and the Castlemartyr team. They helped connect us to all of the absolutely wonderful Vendors we used on our big day as well. The day of, I did not worry about a thing! Elaine and team made sure everything went off flawlessly. The wedding set up and decor was over and above what I even imagined – for the ceremony, drinks reception and dinner. They were extremely flexible in our timeline when we had a few delays before dinner but also helped to keep us on track and coordinate all events of the evening. I cannot thank the team enough!
Having recently got married in Castlemartyr Hotel my husband and I could not recommend or rate the hotel highly enough. Jackie our coordinator was so professional and could not help us enough no matter our request. She was so helpful throughout the planning and gave us some lovely tips and advice on how to make our day even more special for our guests. The hotel speaks for itself in terms of style but it is it’s staff that add to it being so warm and welcoming. The staff on the day of our wedding (as well as the many times we had visited beforehand) were just brilliant. They are down to earth, chatty and so accommodating. The hotel does really look after not only the bride and groom but all of the guests as well and we received so many nice compliments from our guests on how they were treated. You will not regeret it if you choose Castlemartyr Hotel as your wedding venue, we will always be thrilled that we chose this venue to get married and cannot wait to visit again.
Response from Castlemartyr Resort
Dear Kelly Ann and William, Lovely to read your review and the team are thrilled to hear that you received so much positive feedback from your guests after your wedding. You both looked amazing on the day and were a delight to work with – I always looked forward to your visits so hopefully we shall see you both in the near future. Many congratulations to you both – our fondest regards JACKIE & all the wedding team
From the first time we met Elaine at Castlemartyr we know that we had found the perfect venue for our wedding. Elaine was an absolute pleasure to deal with from beginning to end. Everything was made so easy when making decisions. The advice we got at our Tasting meal and when choosing our wine was second to none. We felt special from day one and every time we visited the hotel they couldn’t do enough for us. On the day of our wedding Elaine and the team treated both us and our guests in the manner we had come to expect.
The wedding from start to finish was absolutely amazing. When we called we were speaking with Jackie who was absolutely amazing. If anyone has Jackie you will not be disappointed. We then met Trevor who is just out on his own. No words could ever describe what Jackie and Trevor done for us.
From the moment we booked I couldn’t fault anything about the Castlemartyr, staff were fantastic in every aspect of organising. My mum fell sick in the weeks leading up to the wedding and not attending, I hadn’t the time to deal with wedding issues and they more or less took over and I had nothing to worry about, leaving me have time to concentrate on my mum. The staff are literally what make this hotel so amazing, and made my wedding so perfect.
We had a wonderful wedding day and couldn’t be happier with our choice of venue. The setting at Castlemartyr is spectacular and served as the perfect backdrop for our outdoor Hindu wedding ceremony and wedding reception. We were blessed with the finest of warm weather on our special day and the picture-perfect sunkissed grounds made for magical photography opportunities which we will treasure forever. Castlemartyr is a 5 star resort and we were treated as royals every step of our journey from the wedding planning stages right up to the special day. The staff were welcoming and at all times helpful and attentive. Our wedding coordinator Elaine was most approachable and friendly. She was, along with all the staff at Castlemartyr, most helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make our day special and memorable. Our wedding day was unique and incorporated both a church ceremony and a Hindu ceremony. The Hindu ceremony was held outdoors within the grounds of Castlemartyr resort. The staff at Castlemartyr all worked incredibly hard to ensure that the setup of our Hindu ceremony was as we desired; the layout of the Mandap, the setup of the guest chairs by the fountain, the location of statues and Flowers etc . We didn’t need to worry, all was in capable hands. Our guests very much enjoyed the well-presented drinks reception outdoors and commended the exquisite menu served in the magestic Capel suite. The rooms were most comfortable and out of this world. Oh and as for the presidential suite one cannot find the right words: Wow simply wow ! Thank you all at Castlemartyr for making our wedding day so special and memorable and personal…Oh and thanks Gerry for helping us strap the remaining 2 tiers of our wedding cake into the carseat on the day of our departure!!! Love to you all from the new Mr&Mrs Patel xx
From the beginning right through to the big day the staff and management of Castlemartyr Resort were absolutely fantastic. Our wedding coordinator Jackie was exceptional. No query went unanswered and she couldn’t have done more to make our day more special and memorable. Also Trevor was extremely welcoming & warm and delivered on his promise for the weather on our big day!!! The Resort and surrounding grounds are stunning, the staff are extremely friendly and the food was delicious. Our guests were very impressed and they especially enjoyed the late breakfast the next morning.
We got married at Castlemartyr in July 2019 and had a wonderful wedding day. Jackie Day was our wedding coordinator, she was brilliant leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. The staff were incredible from the concierge, to the wedding / bar staff, they were all so helpful and made us feel very special. Too many people to even mention! From the moment of even considering Castlemartyr as an option, we were never going to go elsewhere; not only are the grounds and venue amazing but the staff were incredible at every stage from planning, to the evening itself, and since thereafter. We have a young daughter who was with us one of the occasions we went to visit the hotel before the wedding and they treated our whole family with unbelievable generosity and kindness. Our wedding guests highlighted how amazing the experience and the food was on the day, not to mention the late breakfast the day after. We were made to feel special and I honestly couldn’t fault anything. Living abroad, Jackie made the whole experience that much easier and pleasurable, coming up with ideas and overall reducing our stress levels! Now anytime we have a need to travel to Cork for any reason, Castlemartyr is always our first choice, we have stayed in contact with Jackie and the hotel, and even now they are as helpful as ever! Its a beautiful resort and I’d highly recommend Castlemartyr to anyone looking at wedding venues. They truly went above and beyond to make our day special, so much so we even had our guests comment on how great their staff were, along the food and facilities/resort.
Castlemartyr Resort was the perfect location for our wedding this summer! The entire team especially our wonderful coordinator Jackie Day made the whole experience incredibly enjoyable without any stress. No request was too big or too small and the entire team at Castlemartyr were welcoming and helpful throughout. The food is a particular highlight at Castlemartyr with many of our guests astonished at the extremely high standard. Rooms at the Resort are another highlight, again many of our guests were blown away by them. Overall, we would highly recommend Castlemartyr to any couple looking for a 5 star experience for their special day! We cannot wait for our next stay at the Resort!
Elaine was our wedding co-ordinator and an absolute gem, but so many people in Castlemartyr -from Ivan & Hazel in accommodations, Kay the banqueting manager, Khan the bar manager and Trevor the Customer Service manager- made planning our wedding and the day itself the stuff of dreams. It was an absolute pleasure and nothing was too much for them. The level of professionalism, care and flexibility was second to none and I cannot recommend Castlemartyr Resort and their amazing staff enough. The food was incredible and all of our guests commented on the venue, the food and the amazing atmosphere. It is a day we will always always treasure and we will never forget the treatment we got.
The Castlemartyr far exceeded our expectations for our wedding. Ellen could not do enough for us leading up to the day and made the organising so stresa free and simple. Pur weddong meal was amazing and the room for the wedding was stunning. I would highly recommend the Castlemartyr for a wedding or any other big event!
I could not recommend castlemartyr resort hotel enough. They went above and beyond for us. Jackie was a amazing. One of the best days of my life and will always cherish and hold castlemartyr resort hotel close to my heart
There are not enough words in the english vocabulary to positively describe our wedding experience at Castlemartyr. Me and Naomi (Naomi is Irish and I am Maltese) live in Malta and with the recent addition to our family, it was quite daunting going into wedding preparations this early after welcoming Olivia only 7 months prior to our wedding day. We only traveled 3 times to Ireland prior to the wedding so email and phone calls was all we could have to communicate. HAving said that, Jackie and her team seem to have their computers glued to their hands. I doubt there was a time we had to wait for more than 1-2 hours for a reply. Each time the replies were detailed, accurate and reassuring. We quite took the back seat for a few weeks knowing Jackie had everything under control. This however resulted in us changing our minds on some details quite close to the wedding day… a wedding planners worse nightmare you’d imagine. The resort never made us feel unreasonable or uncomfortable with our requests and ALWAYS tried their best (and managed) to satisfy our desired. Even when it lashed up until 1 hour prior to the outdoor ceremony, the staff where locked and loaded and set up outdoors in record time. Yes we where graced with enough dry weather to finish our ceremony. The pictures are awesome ! The venue was beautifully set. There is a sense of privacy that separates you from the hotel guests, which was what we primarily looked for. My groomsmen/best man had quite a good life at the wedding, the resort where on top of things, most often kindly nudging me with the days schedule.. not intruding at all. The food and beverage service, equal to no other in my opinion. None of this deceiving belly filling gimmicks we’ve all seen at weddings. Quality meats, fresh produce and an excellently well balanced menu. My guests still speak of our wedding. I would also add a 6th star category, ‘Personal’, which is what Castlemartyr has made this to be. Thankyou.
We got married on 1st June 2019, and had our wedding reception in Castlemartyr Resort. I would highly recommend Castlemartyr as a wedding venue. I looked into quite a few venues before we picked here, and I am so happy with our choice. Getting married the bank holiday weekend (and looking to prolong the celebrations as much as possible!) we decided to have a 3-day affair for our wedding. A major benefit to Castlemartyr is that it provided the ideal venue for this – we were able to have food and drinks with our guests in Castlemartyr both the night before the wedding, and the day after the wedding! Once we moved into Castlemartyr we did not have to leave – so even though our wedding was just 1 day, it felt like we got excellent value for money as we were actually around the venue for 4 days. Castlematyr is the perfect wedding venue, for many reasons: 1 – Staff: The staff at Castlemartyr are so friendly, helpful and professional. From as far back as when we were enquiring about having our wedding in Castlemartyr, to staying there for our Wedding Tasting, right up until our Wedding Day weekend, all staff were so courteous and pleasant to deal with. All of our guests also found the staff to be so friendly and polite, and excellent at their jobs. 2 – Wedding Planner: When you book your wedding at Castlemartyr you are assigned a wedding planner – which is an excellent bonus. Our wedding planner was Elaine and she helped us with absolutely everything relating to the wedding reception. It was great to have someone there that you could rely on every step of the way. Elaine was a true professional, and it was clear that she loved her job which is nice to see. She went above and beyond for us! 3 – Grounds: Castlemartyr Resort is a stunning venue – our wedding photos and wedding video look like something right out of a bridal magazine as ALL areas (hotel, garden, castle ruins, bridal suite) are so picturesque! Our videographer had a drone and the footage over the hotel grounds is just exceptional! 4 – Food: All of our guests raved about the food served at our wedding. We went for the Sea Bass and Fillet Steak options for main course, and both went down a treat! Portions were very generous, and quality of the food was exceptional. 5 – Accommodation: Castlemartyr offers an amazing choice of accommodation for guests. We decided to make our wedding in a 3-day affair. Many of our guests booked into the self-catering mews and lodges for three nights. This was a great option as it worked out excellent value. It was also ideal for families as there is ample space and the ability to prepare your own food for picky children! For our guests staying just one or two nights – most opted to stay in the fabulous hotel rooms. All hotel rooms in Castlemartyr are very impressive, and their breakfast spread is the best I have had in any 5 star hotel in Ireland. 6 – Bridal Suite: The lavish bridal suite was the perfect location for getting ready the morning of the wedding. It was big enough for all the bridal party, and the perfect backdrop for my wedding prep photos! In conclusion, I would highly recommend Castlemartyr to any couple looking for a 5 star wedding venue. I cannot wait to go back to stay there again very soon!
Castlemartyr was a stunning venue who catered for exactly what we needed. The staff went above and beyond to ensure all went smoothly on the day. Couldn’t recommend the place enough
My husband Oisin and I got married in Castlemartyr last month and we are still glowing with gratitude from the absolutely wonderful experience that we had there. What an amazing venue! Castlemartyr is truly outstanding – the grounds and rooms are beautiful, spacious and comfortable and the staff are second to none – particularly the fabulous Jackie Day who was our wedding planner, and Trevor and Kay who also helped to expertly manage the day. They were completely focused on making sure that we were relaxed and happy about things from the time of our initial visit to the hotel; right up to the wedding day itself and beyond. We organised our wedding while living abroad, which brought its own challenges, and they couldn’t have been kinder and more understanding in all their dealings with us throughout. We were particularly impressed by the warm welcome bestowed upon both of our families as they checked in the night before the wedding – we really felt completely at home straightaway and fully able to wind down after a busy week of organisation! Our guests all loved the food on the day; from the drinks reception canapes to the wedding meal itself and the snacks at midnight. The function room was just the right size – intimate and located away from the main body of the hotel so that we had privacy. There is also a beautiful spa, Italian restaurant and golf course so there were plenty of other facilities to enjoy over the weekend. We organised our flowers and make-up with suppliers in the village of Castlemartyr so there are a lot of excellent wedding-related amenities close by as well. There are a great range of accommodation options available in the hotel – from suites to self-catering group lodges on the grounds – which provided great flexibility for our guests. In summary, an absolutely fantastic venue which left us with charming memories of consummate professionalism, gentle generosity and good humour. Many thanks Castlemartyr!
We had our wedding last month in the wonderful Castlemartyr. Where Do I start firstly I want to mention Jackie Day our wedding coordinator she made the whole process so seamless and was so quick to respond to any emails I sent her with any queries or worries I had. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. No request was too big or small and the day went without a hitch because Jackie was behind the scenes making sure every thing ran so smoothly. Myself and my husband were treated like the only couple getting married here from the day we choose the venue , our menu tasting etc. All our guests are still raving about the food comparing it to a Michelin Star restaurant standard and there was also comments about wine was constantly topped up which is always a good thing to hear at an Irish wedding 😉 We felt that we got great value for money as there is so much included in the package and was worth every penny. Our family and all our guests are were treated so well over the whole weekend we were there and we can’t thank all the team at Castlemartyr enough. A special mention to Trevor also who was a star and a pure gent. My husband said to me on our honeymoon that he wants to get married all over again just to experience the great day we had:)
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!!!
