Wedding Testimonials

"We recently had our Wedding Reception at the Bracken Court Hotel and we cannot recommend them enough. From start to finish there was never a problem with any requests and the support we received with organising our special day was outstanding. The team at the Bracken Court work so hard and really gave us all we asked for and more. We wish we could go back and do it all again! We will most certainly be coming back to the Bracken Court for future celebrations and will be recommending it to whoever will listen!"

"Hi, I performed the best man duties for Alan Lawlor at his wedding to Yvonne Greene on 05/08/2017. I felt compelled to e-mail you to compliment you on the entire service provided for this wedding. Everything was perfect. While I feel your staff from receptionists, house keeping, bar staff and waitrons all provided an friendly and efficient service I would like to single out Georgina whose personal touch to the whole proceedings was amazing. She was constantly in the wings to sort out any hic cups that arose while at the same time never being intrusive. Overall a five star service and I look forward to returning at a future date. Regards, Noel."

"After visiting so many hotels in Dublin for our July wedding our minds were made up as soon as we set foot in The Bracken Court Hotel. The hotel manager/wedding coordinator Conor showed us around the venue. We were having our ceremony as well as our afters in the hotel so the size of the ceremony room was quite important to us. The ceremony room was huge and comfortably sat 150 guests. The reception room is absolutely stunning with it decorated immaculately and exactly to our taste (organised by staff at hotel) there is a large dance floor, bar and stunning lighting throughout. The bride and grooms suite is just stunning and the beds are very cosy!   The staff are one of the friendliest that we have ever come across in any hotel and no request was too large for them, especially Conor! Georgina was also unbelievable on the day and was like a third bridesmaid and I cannot thank her enough for this. The reception staff and room service was all impeccable. The food was out of this world not just at our wedding but we also ate the night before and had breakfast and lunch the following day.   All of our guests had such a wonderful time and were so complimentary about the hotel, staff, food and how big and cosy their rooms were especially for the value!   The seaside is a short stroll away and there are a few lovely little hidden gems around the area (Ardgillan castle and little boutiques).   Honestly I cannot thank the staff at The Bracken Court enough for making myself and my new Husbands day just perfect. I wish I could poach Conor as he is just such a wonderful, friendly and organised individual and we could not have had the day we had without him!! I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding but also just for a relaxing weekend! We look forward to returning on our one year anniversary to re-live some wonderful memories.   Huge thank you to all at The Bracken Court Hotel!!"

"Hi Jean.   Hope you’re keeping well! John and I would just like to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us to make our wedding at the Bracken Court Hotel simply amazing! Our guests have nothing but great things to say about the hotel! They raved about the food (big compliments to the chef), the staff and the overall service. It was quite simply an amazing day! Every one of the staff we encountered went above and beyond to make it special and the whole day just flowed seamlessly. Georgina really helped make the evening go so smoothly, she is truly a star! The reception room bar staff were friendly and chatty. The ladies on reception were so friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble, they always had a big hello and a smile whenever we needed something.   The reception room looked amazing and our guests loved our top table with all our families sitting around the long table down the middle of the room together! The dancefloor was never empty and even the DJ himself said our choice of music and playlist was brilliant! My sister and another friend have now booked Funky Functions for their own weddings! Maybe I’ll become a wedding DJ? Hahaha Even my dad was up dancing most of the night, something I haven’t seen him do since my brothers wedding 13 years ago!!!   Please extend our thanks to everyone at the Bracken Court Hotel who made our special day a memorable one.   Thank you so much Jean, we truly appreciate everything you did for us!   We will stop by soon to thank you in person!"

We got married out in the Bracken Court Hotel back on the 24th September 2016. We had visited the hotel and year and a half before we set our wedding date and were given a tour of the hotel, suites, room etc. We booked our wedding that evening. Throughout the whole experience, the staff at the Bracken Court were so helpful. The girls Georgina, Sinead and Jean were always on hand if I had any queries regarding our packages or anything to do with weddings!! We remained in constant contact right up to the week of the wedding. Our food tasting was amazing, we were given plenty of time to enjoy and taste the food, Sinead offered a lot of suggestions along the way which we took on board. The night before the wedding, we handed everything over to Conor. We had every faith in him but it wasn't until the next day after our ceremony and we walked into the room, it took my breath away. Every tiny detail was taken care of and everything was perfect. More than I could have hoped for. Conor even took some last minute requests from the groom and groomsmen regarding our Entrance!! It went off without a hitch!! Conor checked in with both myself and my husband throughout the day and made sure we were satisfied with how the day was going. I can't recommend the Bracken Court enough for a wedding. All our friends and family are still talking of our wedding and we can't thank you all enough for making our day perfect. Thanks a million. We are looking forward to our 1 year Anniversary stay!!

"Hi Jean/Georgina/Conor/Sinead.   Just wanted to say a very big thank you to all the staff of the Bracken Court Hotel. Our wedding was held there on Aug 13th and it was an absolutely amazing day.   From start to finish the staff really did everything in their power to make sure it all ran smoothly.   Almost every guest has commented on how friendly the staff were, how AMAZING the food was and how the rooms were decorated beautifully.   We could not have asked for better treatment than we received and you really played a big part in making the day so special for us.   Also, a very special thank you to Sinead for leading us around on the day and calming all nerves etc.   I would highly recommend your hotel to anyone planning a wedding in the future.   So thank you again for making our day so special."

Ann-Marie & Derek 13.08.2016

"Sorry I'm only getting to say this to you guys now. We went away for the month straight after the wedding. We'd just like to say thanks to Jean, Georgina and Conor. The day went perfectly. So smoothly and efficient even when I threw a spanner in the works in turning up 15 mins early. Lol. Thanks to Jean for getting the whole process started and having meetings with us. Thanks to Georgina for being there with me on the day. My biggest thanks has to go to Conor. You spent the whole weekend with us and nothing was a problem. I'm speechless any time I think of all the help you gave us. I feel you went above and beyond your call of duty. Anything we asked for wasn't a problem you just got it sorted. The food was fantastic. Everybody commented on just how perfectly cooked the food was so hats off to the chef and the cooks. Again, thanks for hosting our wedding and making our day as special as it was."

Fran and Christian 28.05.2016

"Well Jean, what can I say. It was the best day of my life. From the time we walked into the hotel till the time we walked out 2 days later the staff couldn’t do enough for us.   I just want to thank yourself, Sinead, Geraldine, Conor and all the staff involved for making our day so amazing.   Our guests are still talking about what a great day it was from the food, decorations, music etc.   Gary decided to have an input when we got to the hotel and asked for a certain song to be played when we entered the room and off course Conor got it sorted for him.   So thanks so much again and I am sure we will be back out in the Bracken Court soon enough."

Gillian & Gary 21.05.2016

The wedding team were a dream to work with from the start and helped us with every question and concern or request we had, so myself and Anthony would just like to send a big thank you to the hotel."

Emma & Anthony 11.03.2016 

"Dear Sinead, Our thanks to you and all the staff in the Bracken Court Hotel for making our post wedding party night so special last Saturday night.  I would like to say a special word of thanks to James for the amazing food and for catering for our vegetarian guests so beautifully.   Also to Conor, he was fantastic on the night, nothing was too much trouble for him and he looked after us all so well.   I will highly recommend the Bracken Court Hotel to anyone who is interested in having a party or a wedding.

 "Just had our wedding here and it was fantastic. Staff couldn't have done more, particularly Conor who was so great all day. Food was gorgeous, with many guests saying it was the best they have ever had at a wedding. We came from Australia and it was so easy to organise with the hotel as they helped so much with everything. Couldn't recommend it any more. Great day!"

Stephanie & Stephen Gregory 22.01.2016

"Hi Guys, Conor, can't thank you enough for all you done on our big day. I really appreciated all your dedication and it definitely made our day less stressful. Even down to the small details didn't go unnoticed and also way you made sure the kids were included too (Madison ringing the bell) was a big hit! This attention to detail didnt just last throughout the day of our wedding but all weekend during our stay at the hotel. I would highly recommend your services to anyone booking a wedding in the near future. I hope you are getting the recognition you deserve as we found you absolutley fantastic to work with :) Sinead, thanks a million for all the work you done behind the scenes. The organisation that you put into our big day didnt go unnoticed either. We had an absolutley amazing weekend so thank you again. Many Thanks"

Mr & Mrs Foley 11.07.2015

"Hi Georgina.  I just wanted to say thank you so much for everything you did for us on the day of the wedding and the lead up to the wedding day itself. God nothing was too much for you, no matter what we asked you helped us with straight away and we really appreciate that. The night of our menu tasting we were treated like royality and we had a brilliant night so that really did set the tone for us in the 4 weeks coming up to the wedding, the staff that night were fantastic. I had poor Emma's head melted on reception so will you please thank her for us as she is a diamond!
The day of the wedding itself was just amazing from start to finish, everything ran so smoothly but went way too quick! Our guests are still complimenting the whole day and the service that was provided. They absolutely LOVED the food (the soup bowls went down such a treat some of my guests have been looking for bread rolls to do the same). Thank you for making sure that my uncle was looked after with his car parking space and anything else that he needed. The 2nd day of the wedding was brilliant and everyone really enjoyed the BBQ (compliments to the chef on both days) as we ran out of food Conor was on top of it straight away (please thank him from us ). That band you organised for us were absolutely brilliant so much so Paul's aunt bought their CD ;-)
Honestly Georgina, the whole weekend was amazing from start to finish and the staff were fantastic but you yourself are just an absolute DIAMOND, you went above and beyond what anyone would have expected and my whole family passed comment on the fact that you are such an amazing person! The Bracken Court are definitely in safe hands having a staff member like yourself and they should be proud of you ! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our whole wedding such an amazing experience and we have built memories that will last a life time !
We will be out soon for a visit"

Everyone of my guests had a brilliant day and couldn't compliment the hotel enough as everything ran so smoothly from start to finish.

Now that we are all back to normal here, I just wanted to email you and all the staff for a  fantastic day.  We could not have wished for anything more, it was perfect.  The meal was fab and everyone is still talking about it.  The room was beautifully done for both the ceremony and the reception.  A big thanks to Sinead and her team  and of course the chefs.  The bedrooms were also a big hit with both kit and I and all our guests that stayed.

Thanks again"
