Our wedding in Fota was fantastic from the beginning. We dealt with the loveliest wedding planner, Patricia Murray, who was able to guide/advise us in all aspects of the planning leading up to the big day. During our time there, 4 days!, the hotel manager, Brendan Comerford & staff, were absolutely amazing with regard to the service provided for us and our 220 guests. We would highly, highly recommend Fota Island Resort & Spa.Tara & Bryan28th Apr 2017

The perfect wedding day!

I recently got married at Fota. What a perfect day it was! My husband and I are living abroad, so the majority of organization was done via email. The new wedding coordinator, Patricia Murray, is wonderful! She was so helpful and quick to reply with any queries I had. We chose Fota because we knew that they would provide the best service and food, without needing much direction from us. Their staff are so highly trained and polished that we had no fear of being let down.

From the moment we arrived, everything was incredible. Patricia and Brendan greeted us, and Will looked after us for the night. The food was outstanding! One of the highlights of the evening for me was when the executive chef came out to check on us to make sure we were enjoying everything!

The room looked so beautiful, and it was exquisitely decorated. The staff were so attentive, and our guests had nothing but good things to say about every aspect of the day.
The bridal suite was huge, and so comfortable!
We were lucky enough to enjoy a barbecue at the clubhouse the next day, which was equally wonderful. The grounds are so beautiful, and it thankfully didn't rain so we could sit out and enjoy it all.
I had the best day of my life and we wouldn't change a single thing. I'd recommend Fota to anyone :)

We had an amazing day last Saturday, we didn't stop smiling from ear to ear all day. I'm still on a high while relaxing on the shores of The Maldives. Fota Island is a fantastic location and you and the staff should be very proud of the operation you run there. All of our guests were very impressed by the attention to detail, the service and most importantly the food. Will (your replacement!) and the staff on the day were excellent and they gave us and our guests their undivided attention. Thank you again for all your help, advice and support throughout the last few months and for helping me to achieve one of the most memorable days of our lives.
