Our Gorgeous Wedding at the Metropole

'We had our wedding atthe Metropole Hotel. When we first viewed the hotel I absolutely loved the look and feel antique style (golds, reds, blues.. beautiful!). My parents had their wedding reception here too over 40 years ago and so we had hoped that we would actually want to have ours here too! 

They have a sample set menu/all-inclusive package available. This seemed nice but wasn't really what we wanted. We were able to pick and choose and make the day our own. We had canapes and scones, etc. on arrival. We had a five course meal and evening food too. Quotes were made clear and everything we wanted was accommodated for. 

Customer service is SO IMPORTANT for me and on the day all of the staff were very lovely and helpful. The ballroom was stunning (we added our own table decor, etc.) too.

The hotel's location is ideal for guests travelling via Cork airport and wanting to stay in the City Centre. The hotel gave us a set special wedding accommodation rate and gave good deals to those who were staying more than one night. The breakfast was fantastic!

The hotel has four suites - all are beautiful! We had the Purple room as our bridal suite - it was stunning! The morning after our wedding, we were treated to a champagne breakfast in bed, which was such a lovely touch and made us feel so special.

The best asset to this hotel as a wedding venue is the Chef and the food. ALL of our guests were blown away by the amazing food - much better than your regular wedding banquet food - so fresh, delicious, flavoursome! My husband and I had met for a tasting with the chef who really went out of his way to include everything we wanted. We would love to have the meal again, is was beautiful!

The iconic stairs and the old wine cellar are great spots for lovely, different photos. The day was spectacular and we loved every minute of it!

We would definitely recommend you check this hotel out for your wedding venue.'
