"Our Fairy - Tale Wedding"
We had our Wedding here in May 2019, they're wont be enough space here to fully explain how impressed we were but here goes!! From our first show around of the beautiful property we knew this was the PERFECT venue to have our big day. Just to be slightly different i had always envisaged a Disney themed Wedding, and had spent many hours online looking for inspiration. We were immediately put totally at ease by Caitriona the wedding Co Ordinator, who not only shared my name but my love for all things Disney. From the beginning any little requests were being noted down by her and she even offered suggestions and ideas. Once she saw my Disney ideas and what i was Making and buying, her head seemed to fill with more ideas, she went totally above and beyond by altering the hotels usual offering to include Disney themed menus, seating plan & table numbers.
Just to make they're jobs harder my husband and I are both chefs and many of our guests work in the hotel industry so the gauntlet was thrown down to Chad Byrne and his team early in the time.Sitting down to talk to Chad was great fun with lots of ideas being thrown around, ultimately we all agreed we need a bit of a WOW factor during main course.
He came back to us with a concept of individual portions of salt baked cod cracked open at each table, we tried to keep this a secret from family & friends as i really wanted to see they're reaction on the night,little did we know that the hotel had kept a surprise from us. Before main course i noticed Food stations being pushed in the banqueting room, they had decided to cook the stir-fry vegetables that accompanied our Cod main course right in front of our eyes, definitely a WOW for all our guests!!
These Stations were again used for the evening food where the chefs were front and centre cooking in front of our guests including special fried rice boxes, gourmet hot-dogs.
We cannot praise highly enough the Brehon management and team overall for making our Special day one that we can never forget.We cannot possibly mention everyone, but from reception to housekeeping to all service staff it was quite simply FAULTLESS
