WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE LIKE AT THE BUNRATTY CASTLE HOTEL? “Five star, and we would give 10 if possible. David Shelly, General Manager, is an absolute credit to the hotel. There was nothing we asked David that he did not do. He was on hand from start to finish and was fun and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Bunratty Castle Hotel to anyone for any event. His staff were amazing on the day and were praised around the room by many people. The chef, Donna, had her talents put to the test as we brought our son with a nut allergy, vegetarians, vegans and vegans with food allergies. The food was incredible and she could not have been more accommodating and helpful. We could not, if we tried, find fault with this venue, David, Donna and the staff at the hotel ensured we had the most memorable day imaginable.�

TELL US ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE WOODLANDS HOUSE HOTEL “The Woodlands absolutely outdid themselves on every front. From the very first meeting we felt we could trust Elaina and David Fitzgerald with any aspect of our wedding. The attention to detail of our day was amazing and everyone raved about the warm feel and the food. They guided us through everything and nothing was impossible. Each member of their staff were so welcoming and accommodating. It was so special to be welcomed by Mrs. Fitzgerald after stepping out of our car. We cannot thank them enough for such a magical weekend.”
