Where to begin? We just had the most fantastic, wonderful and special wedding at Parknasilla. It was everything we could have wished for - and more - we are still talking about it and reliving it and we will for years to come.
The attention you gave us Marie from the very start of our preparations was brilliant and second to none. You made everything we wanted happen - like a fairy wedding Godmother! From the Brooklyn beers, to the subsidised bar, to the sweetie table, to setting up the photographs, to sorting out my nails and bringing me fizz, to organising the dinner on the Friday night, to the tea and cake on the Sunday, to delivering the welcome bags, to driving to Sneem to sort Simon's Dad's jacket out... we could go on... you just made it all happen.
The staff at Parknasilla are just fantastic - nothing was too much trouble, we were looked after so well - from making sure we could have tables to eat at in the bar on the Thursday night, to essentially letting us have the run of The Shaw Lounge from the Friday for the whole weekend, to attending to our every whim. You have a very impressive, warm, welcoming and competent team at Parknasilla. You are in a different league entirely.
The food was fantastic. The canapés were in abundance and people have mentioned them to us since. The topping up of wine was spot on. The meal was delicious and I am still thinking about that midnight ham roll with the cheese and chutney...
And the icing on the top of the cake was how much our guests just loved it. We have been told by countless different people how brilliant the staff were, how delicious the food was (that basil ice-cream won't be forgotten in a hurry) how wonderful the setting was, how beautiful the hotel was - our guests could not speak more highly of our wedding (if there is ever to be a wedding competition, we would easily win!). A fair few people have fallen in love with the place so you may well see some of our guests again! It is testament to how simply incredible the hotel, you and your staff were.
