Ross & Margurite Turner 7th June 2019

Well where do we begin? The Bay was our number 1 choice for our big day from the second we got engaged. We had been to several weddings in the Bay in the past and all were superb.

From initial meetings to visiting wedding showcases we fell in love.

The day itself took our breath away and the very special attention to detail was flawless.

The whole hotel not just the wedding team deserve amazing praise.

Our families from far and not so far all said and I quote ‘the best wedding we have been to in for forever’

We can’t recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel enough, from the food and atmosphere to the hospitality and genuine care they show to their guests. First Class.

Thanks for everything, Ross & Margurite Turner 7th June 2019


The Best Vegan Wedding Ever! June 2019

Thank you so much for making our day so special and unforgettable. Your staff really went above and beyond to make sure we all had a brilliant day, and we really did! We especially want to thank your amazing head chef who created the perfect vegan menu for us. Everyone was raving about it, including all the meat eaters there (who didn’t “chicken” out)!

Another special thanks has to go to our wedding coordinator Eimear who was with us every step of the way, ensuring everything was planned perfectly. We barely had to think of anything; we just enjoyed every minute of the day.

We have gotten nothing but good feedback from our guests about your lovely staff who provided amazing service all day. Yet another special thanks has to go to your night porter who went so far as to drop some guests home in the early hours of the morning when they couldn’t get a taxi.

There’s nothing bad we can say about The Arklow Bay Hotel. The service we received was as good as any 5 star hotel. We would recommend The Arklow Bay to anyone, especially any vegan couples out there. You’ll be sure to have one of the best days of your life for a fantastic price!

“Thank you so much for all the hard work you put in to make our day so special. We really can’t thank you enough. Everything was flawless. We are so glad we picked the Arklow Bay Hotel for our Wedding Reception.”
“From the day we went in for our initial tour, the staff could not have been kinder or friendlier. Nothing was too much trouble for the General Manager & his team of staff. All our questions and concerns were answered with courtesy and unfailing patience and they were totally committed to making our wedding reception the best day of our life.on the day, things couldn’t have been more perfect and we’ve had so many compliments about the food, the staff, the service, the rooms, even the breakfast the next day. Our guests were thrilled, and so were we.”
“We had our wedding at the Arklow Bay in January this year. We found the staff, service and food provided by the Arklow Bay to be of exceptional quality and such high standard. The hotel itself is set in stunning location and the décor is fabulous. We had our arrival drinks in the stunning bright lobby.
“Our reception was run to precision timing which was excellent and all our guests complimented the food and staffs service all day. I would highly recommend the Arklow Bay”
“We had a wonderful time during the course of the day and all the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. From dropping off the wedding favours and cakes, to the room setup to being greeted at the front door, everything was done to a high standard, our every need catered for and we had no worries all day.”

Can’t thank the Arklow Bay enough, we got married on the 25th August and it was the best day ever! We were dealing with Orla and Shauna and they were both amazing! Everything was so laid back and everything is done for you so there is no stress for the big day. I had supplied lots of extra detail for my big day and they set the room out perfectly for me! The staff were amazing too and very polite. The food was beautiful, everyone commented on it. The outside is beautiful for pictures. I am so glad I picked the Arklow Bay and wish I could do it all again. Thanks again xxx
