"Fantastic wedding weekend"
We were invited to a wedding in Adare Ireland the wedding party was held at Adare Manor where we decided to stay for 2 nights........WOW !!!!!! what an experience, we were met at the front gate house by 2 polite gentleman who checked our names were on the list in a way that can only be described as polite and courteous (we arrived about 6pm 24th Nov) we drove up to the courtyard where we were met with a porter with a very welcome greeting and an umbrella and then shown to reception and checked in with no fuss or bother,we were shown to our room by Katie who gave us loads of information on the hotel facilities and the local area, once in the room she explained how everything worked in the room, lets hope she stays at the hotel for a long time as she is a real credit to the hotel.The room was absolutely first class (as you would expect) the bathrobes were so comfortable it was hard not to keep them on for the evening drinks in Adare village!! Along with some of the wedding party guests.We ventured into Adare for a few drinks and something to eat we were ferried in and out of the village in Adare Manor mini busses which were very clean (I suspect fairly new) and very luxurious and driven by some very polite staff, we then had a visit to the tack room bar which was a great way to finish the evening off, there were a few songs sung and a few pints drunk but the staff never batted an eyelid and just let us all enjoy ourselves. We had the full Irish breakfast in the morning and again it lived up to our expectations, we went in to Adare for the wedding ceremony then came back to the Manor for the wedding party, what a night and experience, Sandra and her team organised an evening that not only did our friends the bride & groom proud but, the hotel as well it was an experience that will never be forgotten Sandra take a bow!! We were met with a champagne & canopies reception again the hotel staff were first class never once was my glass empty, the hall where the wedding meal was served is magnificent, really well laid out and decorated, the food and wine were both served in an unobtrusive way both were, as expected of such high class hotel really top notch, the entertainment was brilliant and catered for all tastes, there was plenty of room for dancing later on in the evening (not sure a lot of the moves were called dancing though!!). We both thoroughly enjoyed our all too short stay at Adare Manor there was absolutely nothing we could fault over the 2 nights, well done ALL the staff of Adare Manor & a very special thank you to Sandra & team for making our good friends wedding so extra special for them.......what a way to start their married life
