  • 1. I honestly can't recommend the Macdonald Kinsale Hotel enough - they were fantastic from start to finish, especially Alison the wedding coordinator who is an absolute gem! She is really excellent at her job and nothing was ever too much trouble. The location and views are amazing, we were lucky enough to have our ceremony outside. The food was fantastic and the hotel were really flexible with the menus allowing us to adjust them to suit. We had lots of guests travelling from abroad so we pretty much took over the hotel for the weekend and they couldn't have looked after us better. Thanks again to everyone at the hotel!
  • Would highly recommend Macdonald Kinsale Hotel & Spa to others couples. The service was excellent, food was lovely with a great menu to choose from and the function room looked very well. Marita (Manager) and Alison (Wedding Coordinator) were both excellent to deal with and went above and beyond, not only on the day but also in the lead up. The packages they offer are great value and there is flexibility there to tailor to your specific needs. If you are considering venues in Cork we would highly advise you to pop down and have a chat with Alison and we're sure you'll be very impressed with the venue and packages on offer.

  • From the first time we viewed the Macdonald Kinsale for our wedding we loved it. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The view was amazing and the service was fantastic. Alison the wedding coordinator was a joy to deal with as we are living overseas she made it easy and stress free for us and the lead up to the wedding was a great experience. Every little thing counted and we were made feel extra special. We would both highly recommend the Macdonald Hotel.

  • I could not have recommended Alison and her team at Macdonald Hotel & Spa, Kinsale more. Organising our wedding from Australia was initially a very daunting idea but once we started working with Alison, we knew we were in great hands. Nothing was too big or too small of an ask, even with the massive time difference!! We also availed of the day after BBQ and was such a perfect decision- amazing food, amazing views and everyone was so relaxed. The service we received right from the front desk was incredible, so much so- our guests could not stop talking about the hotel and the experience. We are beyond delighted with our experience- from the breath-taking views to the service, from the food to the amazing spa, we would have had it no other way. So, for anyone searching for the perfect wedding venue, look no further!!! Thank you, Alison and Co., again from the bottom of our hearts.
