Anita & Ronan
We got married in May 2019 in the breathtaking surroundings of the Royal Valentia Hotel, on Valentia Island. We could not recommend the hotel and staff enough. From the very beginning of our contact with them, we were put at ease and made feel so comfortable. They were so accomodating, friendly and welcoming. They made it hassle free from start to finish. The day could not have gone any better - from the weather and the idyllic surroundings overlooking the sea with a view of the ocean, to the mountains and the surrounding landscape. It was a little piece of heaven for us and our guests. The attention to detail from the staff and the rooms were of a very high standard. The staff let us party all night, even serving us drinks until early in the morning. We booked out the whole Hotel which we'd highly recommend. The food was excellent and fresh and there was a beautiful outdoor area overlooking the pier. Our guests were so pleased and amazed with the surroundings and the vintage decor. The venue for the ceremony was like a dream come true with the views of the sea as we said our vows. The staff seamlessly transformed the ceremony room into the dining room and it was perfect for how we envisioned it. It was a dream location, a fantastic warm staff and the best day of our lives. Thank you Royal Valentia for making our day and our stay so special.

Hi, Im Elaine Corkery and I was privileged to be Mother of the bride on the 14th June 2019. My daughter Eleanor & her Fiance Dawid tied the knot in the Royal Valentia Hotel. From start to finish we were so well catered for. Laura and Fiona were so helpful in helping us plan all the little and not so little details. Beautiful rooms were made available to all of us on the day to dress and stay. All of our guests commented on how comfortable they were and the glorious views. We opted for a buffet and the food was simply out of this world on both days. Plenty of staff, no one kept thirsty at the bar, great craic all night and cooked to order breakfast the next morning. All in all a wedding at The Royal Valentia Hotel is a day to remember and a treat for all.

Words really can’t express how perfect the team at The Royal made our wedding day.
I’m an events planner, I would say I’m quite hard to please, the care and attention to detail the royal showed when we had our wedding there in August 2017 was mind blowing. From the early planning stages to Laura checking each and EVERY plate that left that kitchen, it’s just the perfect place to have your special day. It’s family run, you will never be just a number like most hotels, and you can really feel that. I’m also such a foodie, and that was phenomenal! I’m so thankful to all of the team at The Royal, they made our day better than we could have ever imagined and I will be forever grateful.

I’m so thankful to all of the team at The Royal, they made our day better than we could have ever imagined and I will be forever grateful. Myself and my husband organised our whole wedding while living in Australia. Valentia Island was the obvious location for us, me having spent most of my summers there growing up. From the very first contact to the Royal Hotel in relation to availability and packages - the staff were fantastic! We were going to be the very first wedding in the newly refurbished function room, and although major building works were underway - Fiona kept us fully informed and up to date with the progress throughout the year. She even walked us through the plans when we visited to keep our minds at ease. On the day of the wedding, Laura, Kate & all the team at the Royal Hotel ran the show with amazing percision- we didnt have to worry about a single thing, allowing us to enjoy our perfect day and be in the moment. Everything from the food abnd drink to the decor and service were just exellent! Even now two years after our amazing day- we still have friends and family telling us that our wedding at The Royal was the best wedding they were ever at!
