On behalf of my wife and myself I can only say thank you to the staff and the management of An Chuirt for giving us an amazing wedding experience last week (Start of December). From the moment we met the manager, Lewis, a year and a half before our wedding, we knew we had made the right choice. At no time did we have to worry about our wedding, which was great because we were organising it all from Dublin. We met a number of times and never did Lewis say no to any of our ideas. Instead, he offered us great advice and suggestions as to how we might improve our day but we never felt that he was trying to take control of our wedding.
We stayed at the hotel a number of times before the wedding because it was a long drive in one day and it turned out to be a great opportunity to get to know the staff and the hotel itself and every time we stayed there it was a fantastic experience. On our first meeting Lewis said to us that once we would reach the hotel on our wedding day we would not have to worry about anything and he was true to his word. As soon as we stepped into the hotel, after the ceremony, we both knew that we could relax completely.
My wife and her bridesmaids stayed at the hotel the night before wedding and found it very relaxing. On the morning of the wedding they all went to the beauty salon that is attached to the hotel. They all said that it was great that they didn’t even have to leave the hotel to get their hair and make-up done.
On the day of the wedding the hotel exceeded our expectations – the setting was beautiful inside and out. We took photographs outside the hotel on the morning with the beautiful scenery of Mount Errigal in the background. When we arrived back to the hotel after the ceremony the hotel looked great with all the Christmas decorations. Our guests from across Ireland and Europe were incredibly impressed by the hotel and things only got better with the dinner. The food was amazing and was only matched by the speed of the staff – it was like watching a well oiled machine. Lewis was on call throughout the day and provided helpful advice as to the running order of the speeches and general wedding etiquette. After the band stopped playing we moved out to the lounge area and had a great session on the sumptuous leather seats and couches and were singing and playing music to the small hours of the morning.
In the morning the guests who stayed at the hotel couldn’t get over the standard of the rooms and flexibility of the staff in relation to late check out and breakfast. Parents who had kids at the wedding said it was great that they could use the kids’ play area and the pool.
The staff were great – they were always friendly and professional and did everything they could to make our day special.
The food was amazing on the day of the wedding and in the bar and the restaurant when we stayed there on the previous occasions.
The hotel was great value for money.
I would happily recommend An Chuirt to anyone, either for a wedding or a vacation. Many of our guests said that they would be making a return trip to this beautiful part of Donegal.
