My fiancée is from North America and has always wanted her wedding to reflect the true Irish culture. The Galway Bay Hotel offered exactly that - fantastic food, great views, courteous staff and heart warming music. Our whole wedding from start to finish was coordinated by an excellent young manager, Paul O Connor. Any concerns we had were addressed immediately. He also made suggestions along the way that would make our day extra special, some of which we were not totally sold on but we placed our trust in his experience and he didn't let us down. The Hotel offered us their spacious terrace, an elegant banquet hall and a lovely cosy sea view lounge all of which created a nice movement for the guests on the day of the wedding. By the time our big day came around, Paul ensured us it would be a day to remember and, true to his word, everything ran just like a perfectly oiled machine. The food was exquisite enjoyed both by our North American guests and the traditional reserved Irish palate. Our every comment was noted and every wish was incorporated into our day.He even ensured we had the most amazing sunshine so that our ceremony could be performed on the open terrace, which we believe was the first for the hotel. We cannot recommend highly enough the Hotel, the staff and the way everything from start to finish was seamlessly coordinated by Paul. Thank you for creating a day to remember for us!
