We got married in The Dunloe back in June of this year 2015. The Dunloe delivered on all of our expectations and more. Right from the start when we fist went down there to the open day we were made feel welcome from the get go. The staff were so friendly and helpful and really made us feel like we were the only people they had met that day. The settings were out of this world. Real world class elegance set amongst the backdrop of the Kerry mountains. For such a big hotel it is still so private you really feel like you are the only people there.
We had to look no further once we had seen The Dunloe. We decided on having our ceremony in the beautiful Beaufort Suite and then we had our pictures taken on the grounds of The Dunloe this way we were able to keep all our guests together for the day and it also meant we weren't away from them for too long as this is what we wanted most was to keep it intimate and The Dunloe made sure of this.
Next onto Jason and Veerpal I honestly can't say just how helpful and supportive both of them were throughout the whole 18month process. They always got straight back to me when ever I emailed them which also made planning the wedding so much easier and often put my mind to ease on queries I would have. Queries that to them were probably trivial but they always got back to me promptly and also always had a solution to my queries no matter what I asked the attitude was always if they can do it they will.
The wedding day itself exceeded all expectations. We got married on a Friday but we went down to Kerry and stayed in he Dunloe from the Wednesday with our parents and bridal party. All of the bridal party were upgraded to suites for the duration of their stay including us which was absolutely amamzing. On the Friday Jason and Veerpal co-ordinated the day superbly with out being intrusive, even from having the Dunloe bus to bring us and our bridal party to the area where we were getting our photographs taken which was on site!! Then Canapes being brought down to us so we wouldn't go hungry. It was all the little touches they initiated them selves that really made the day seamless. Our guests are still talking about the food we had guests from England and Singapore who said the food was the best they have ever experienced. The friendliness of the staff isn't cheesy or overwhelming we literally felt like family during our stay. For us it is like a little piece of heaven down there and we couldn't recommend it enough.
