My husband and I chose the Castlemartyr Resort for our wedding reception in June 2012. From the outset when we booked it in 2011, the staff, in particular Jackie Day, could not have been more helpful. They were organised, efficient with replies to emails, and kept our plans on track with gentle reminders of when we needed to make different arrangements for the big day. This is particular aided us, as we were organising our wedding from London. Due to their wealth of experience in hosting wedding receptions, they were able to recommend music for our drinks reception and caterers for a hog roast in the late evening. Our menu tasting in April was very enjoyable where we, including our parents, really felt like we could tailor make the menu to suit our tastes and the tastes of our 150 guests. There wasn't an issue with tasting all the banqueting wines.
When it came to our wedding day, we really felt like everything was in very competent hands. We were able to relax completely and enjoy it. Andrew Phelan, the GM, and Jackie were present throughout the day, ensuring luggage etc made it to the right rooms and that all our guests felt looked after. Jackie was very creative with the table plan and table arrangements. The food was as good as what we had tasted in April, we were able to stay in the banqueting room playing acoustic music until the early hours of the morning, and everything went off without a hitch.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Castlemartyr as a venue for a wedding reception which can be personalised to suit the couple. We had a fantastic experience with them, not only on the day but also on the 18 month lead up to the day. Most importantly, our confidence in the staff's capabilites secured peace of mind for us to thoroughly enjoy our day!
