Wedding Testimonials

On Wed, 27th of April, 2022
We had the most amazing day at Maryborough Hotel and Spa for our wedding. We had heard excellent reviews of the hotel for weddings before we booked our own and it completely exceeded our expectations. What sold it to us was its location in Cork (very accessible for anyone travelling through the airport or other counties), the building itself (gorgeous traditional house with modern twist), the gardens (we didn't leave our guests for too long to get stunning photographs), the rooms (the orangery is truly magnificent for drinks or for the ceremony itself) and the function room (beautiful space with wonderful lighting). Since booking the Maryborough, our interaction with all staff has been truly incredible. Ellis and Mary were excellent in preparing everything for our wedding day, despite all of the barriers the pandemic was presenting to us. They thought of everything and made us feel truly at ease. Ana was fantastic on the day and did everything she could to ensure that we and our guests enjoyed the day. Moreover, all of the staff at reception, the bars, the restaurant, went above and beyond for us. Loads of our guests commented on the delicious meal and canapes served throughout the day too. We cannot wait to revisit the hotel. It will always be so special to us.

Ellis and her team were so helpful when we met her to plan our wedding. On our wedding day everything ran so smoothly. I would highly recommend having a wedding there. The orangry room is so beautiful to have a wedding. Thank you again to Ellis on helping us and making it such a special day to remember.

We had our wedding in the Maryborough Hotel on Friday 11th February 2022. We had the most memorable day. We would like to thank all the Maryborough Hotel staff and in particular, Ellis, Ana and Brian for making the day so special.

After speaking with Ellis and viewing what the Hotel had to offer, we knew this was the perfect venue for us.

Ellis was there to guide and help us the whole way through. She really is a pleasure to deal with. The whole experience was made a lot less stressful when you have someone like Ellis to help.

We held the ceremony in the Orangery and the dinner in the ballroom. The food and service was exceptional. All of our guests were so impressed from start to finish.

We are so happy we chose to have our Wedding at the Maryborough Hotel.

From the moment we sat down for coffee with Ellis to discuss having our wedding at Maryborough Hotel, we knew we were in great hands. Ellis talked us through all the fantastic wedding packages available, and once we saw the Orangery, our hearts were set on having our reception there. It’s such a unique venue. The team at Maryborough Hotel made planning our wedding so easy. Ellis really listens to what ideas we had, and has so much experience in planning the perfect day. Her lovely, calm and friendly manner made us feel so relaxed throughout the planning, even during all the COVID-19 uncertainty.
The menu tasting in advance was fantastic fun, and made us so excited for the big day. On our wedding day itself, the food was just incredible. Our guests are still talking about the it. The room looked so beautiful, and was exactly the intimate setting we had hoped for. All of the Maryborough team were so welcoming to us and our guests. John’s lovely welcome as we entered the hotel reception made for some great photos!
The bridal suite is gorgeous, and so spacious! All of our guests loved their rooms and were very comfortable. The staircase to the suite also makes for some beautiful wedding photos, and the Christmas decorations throughout the hotel really added to our photos. We honestly couldn’t recommend Maryborough Hotel enough to any wedding couple. It’s a beautiful historic venue, with a very special team.

Thank you to Ellis, John, Kieran, Carmel and all the team for making our day so magical.

We had a wonderful time at our wedding and we want to thank Ellis in particular for the 18 months of preparation, 2 date moves and all the other support she offered.

The room was perfect for the day. The food was even better than at our tasting. We truly felt looked after from the moment we arrived until closing time. Everything on the day worked like clockwork and we couldn't be happier.

Thank you to the whole team and in particular Ellis.

We are beyond happy with the experience we had for our wedding at the Maryborough. We had to postpone our wedding twice because of the Covid restrictions and the team at Maryborough could not have been more helpful and understanding of the position we were in. They never put pressure on us about payment or decisions and facilitating all of the changes that were made. The Orangery was the most stunning location for our wedding dinner and our guests enjoyed the drinks and dinner so much. We received lots of compliments about the delicious food and the service from the team. A particular shout out to Ellis who helped us plan our day and was there every step of the way through the Covid changes. You will not regret having your wedding in Maryborough Hotel & Spa!

I cannot recommend Maryborough Hotel enough! From the first day we visited right through to our wedding a year and a half later, they were an absolute pleasure to deal with. This included one cancellation and a massive numbers reduction! Throughout the changing guidelines in the pandemic, Ellis kept us up to date with what was happening, always reassuring us about the hotels position with restrictions etc. Every question we had was answered promptly, and Ellis was reassuring throughout. On the day, it was literally perfect. The room was beautiful, and the food and service were second to none. Our family members who stayed really enjoyed their stay and were well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for Ellis and the team. We adored our wedding day at Maryborough Hotel, and have some amazing memories from our day.

Where do we start with our praise for the Maryborough? If you are considering Maryborough Hotel & Spa for your wedding, my advice would be to do it!

From start to finish, we had the most perfect wedding day and weekend.
The venue is divine. Our wedding was during Christmas time, and the hotel was a little winter wonderland in the middle of the city.

The staff are nothing short of exceptional. They are relaxed, polite, welcoming and always have a minute for a chat and a bit of craic. The food was fantastic, and nothing was too much for them!
The wedding planner Ellis is outstanding at her job, as are all the staff. We got married during the Covid 19 pandemic. Ellis and the rest of the staff did their utmost to ensure that everything was as normal as possible for us. During such an uncertain time, Maryborough remained calm and supportive, which is only what I would expect from them.

Absolutely fabulous!

From the moment we saw Maryborough, we knew it was special to us. Ellis was amazing from the moment we made contact, to the day we got married! Throughout all of our postponements, the staff were amazing. We want to give some special mentions to Anna, Carmel, Kieran and everyone that helped on the day. The service was impeccable. Every single one of our guests complimented the orangery, the rooms and in particular the food. My husband and I fell in love with The Maryborough and the grounds. We can’t wait to come back so soon. It will hold a special place in our hearts forever. Thank you to all the team, it was an incredible service.

Ellis was amazing to work with, from start to finish! She was so accommodating and nothing was an issue. She was super fast at responding to any queries I had over email, and was always a pleasure to deal with. We felt very safe with Ellis and she helped make our day so special! The entire staff at the hotel were fantastic. Our families and wedding guests we were treated like royalty, and all staff were friendly and welcoming. The service was excellent, and there was nothing at all to fault! I can’t wait to return again!
