Bunratty Castle Hotel takes the lead in Wedding Planning

Munster's Leading wedding venue, Bunratty Castle Hotel, has invested in enhancing the planning experience of brides and grooms. To reward its couples, Bunratty Castle Hotel now offers complimentary access to Moposa, a Facebook-integrated website with planning tools that enable brides and grooms to save up to €700 while they plan their wedding.

Moposa revolutionised wedding planning by designing tools to solve the most common difficulties. Benefits include the ability to import guests directly from Facebook, complete your seating plan in an online version of Bunratty Castle Hotel’s banqueting room, send invitations and unlimited free text messages, and much more.

“We knew that wedding planning was changing and wanted to help our couples enjoy the full benefits technology can now offer. Moposa helps save time and money, two very important things for our couples. We think that Moposa is the perfect way for us to reward brides and grooms for choosing to spend this important day with us” says David Shelly, Wedding Co-ordinator at Bunratty Castle Hotel.

We had our wedding on the 4th of October. Marion and her team couldn’t have been more amazing. We organized the wedding from England and nothing was too much for them to do for us. From the minute we checked in the day before to the minute we checked out the day after the staff were more than accommodating with what we asked for. I would highly recommended Bunratty for your wedding. The food for the wedding was amazing and Marion made the day so stress free and relaxed.

Hi Marion, Just a quick note to say thanks a million for all you did for us over the past few months to help make our day very special. The room looked amazing on Saturday and the cherry blossom tree table plan looked so lovely. We honestly had the best day. Thanks again, Maria and Noel

We had a fantastic day for our wedding at Bunratty Castle hotel. Marion was excellent from start to finish. She was very easy going nothing was an issue for her and very professional to deal with. The grounds,reception and function room looked outstanding on the day . The food was excellent and have had lots of comments on this ! It was the 1st time many of our guests have been to bunratty to a wedding and have reported back how it was such a fabulous location. So thanks to all the staff in Bunratty for making the build up and our wedding day so special x

Hi Marion, We just wanted to thank you and everyone at Bunratty for an amazing weekend. You are the best wedding coordinator I have ever come across, nothing was too much of an ask! Everyone has praised the food, the hotel rooms and the staff! All the managers and all staff on the day were exceptional. We really had the most amazing day I couldn’t imagine having our reception anywhere but Bunratty. I would recommend it to everyone! Thank you so much, Grainne & Mark

We had a fabulous wedding in Bunratty Castle Hotel. We had a great time and our guests and wedding party had a great time. Marion Moore Murray is an amazing wedding coordinator. She was the calming influence on a day where everything that could go wrong went right. She and her staff at Bunratty Castle Hotel rolled with everything that we threw at them. Every little mess up we had was cleared up with confidence and aplomb by Marion, Brian and their staff. We are so appreciative that they gave us the chance to have an amazing day. They were so considerate to our needs and requirements all day. Even one screw up where a child's bed was supposed to be installed into a grand-parents room was smoothed over at 1.30 in the morning. Nothing was too small or too big

Hi Marion First of all thank you so much for working with us to make 9th May such a wonderful day for us. We would not have enjoyed the day any more then we did and we have you and all the staff of Bunratty Castle Hotel to thank for helping us. You were a delight to deal with. We have just put up a review on Facebook and will do likewise on TripAdvisor.

I had my wedding in the hotel in April and it was just first class from start to finish. Marion and the team were so helpful and considerate on our wedding day. She completely put our mind's at ease! Jordan on the front desk was extremely helpful on the day too. From the reception staff to the banquet staff, they were all amazing!!! Everyone raved about the food afterwards. Couldn't have gone better!

My Wife and I would like to thank everyone at Bunratty Castle Hotel for making our wedding so special. The whole day went perfectly. The staff were flawless and worked so hard to ensure everything ran smoothly. W would like to thank Marion who put us at ease and ensured any requests were no bother, it was a delight to have you as our planner and you are a huge asset to Bunratty Castle Hotel, Elaine was a scream to meet. The room was decked out perfectly and the entire evening ran like clockwork. We cant thank you enough. We would like to thank everyone on the front desk who helped everyone check in and provide an impeccable service. Our family and friends loved the hotel and the service they received, no doubt they will be back, All our love Danny Wadey and Nicole M. Timmons.

When my details had been passed from person to person following Dave leaving and Heather going on maternity I have to admit I was very worried, but I definitely need not have been any bit worried!! I was actually a little disappointed that we only got to meet Marion, the new wedding coordinator, the week of the wedding because we had such a laugh that few days!!!! The day of the wedding EVERYTHING was flawless...(even if my cousin did knock the tower of glasses!! hahaha) I have been getting compliments and calls every day since the wedding, congratulating me on a brilliant day, but this is largely down to you and the team there at Bunratty Castle Hotel providing such a fantastic day for everyone! I really cannot thank you enough I will 100% be recommending you to any newly engaged couples, because there is definitely nowhere in the country that could provide the same level of service and attention to detail that you did! Thanks again

We got married here on the 15th of Feb & would highly recommend it to any brides and grooms to be, everything about the day was just amazing :-)

Myself & my Husband Deaglan cannot thank Bunratty Castle Hotel enough. The Wedding Coordinator, bar staff and banquet staff were all so helpful in every way and made the whole day flow from start to finish. We did not have to worry about a thing. From the Drinks reception, to the Dinner it was so professional. The Chef even personalized each persons desert plate on the top table with their name! We have received so many compliments on the dinner and the wine which was recommended by the hotel themselves. They were always on hand. We had arranged a New Years Eve Midnight Surprise for our guests "The Hit Machine Drummers". The Hotel took care of meeting them and giving them access through to the Banquet hall unseen and this was done without myself or Deaglan having to leave our guests. The hotel was decorated exactly the way I wanted it from Table centre pieces, pictures, decor to the flower wall. They took care of everything exactly as we requested. WE could fault anything. Personally the hotel made the whole day so perfect effortless for us that we were both able to enjoy the day take it all in without any issues We cannot thank you enough for helping make our day special. We will certainly be recommending Bunratty Castle Hotel to everyone.

Extremely helpful and friendly wedding coordinator and the food was amazing!

I can't speak highly enough of the staff and the service we received for our wedding in Bunratty Castle Hotel. Everyone in the hotel was amazing to us in the lead up to our day, in the preparations and on the day itself. On the night before the wedding we had a family meal in the hotel. The staff set the table with the same center pieces that we had selected for the wedding day. That night they helped us set up the room. I had forgotten to print a really important picture for a bit of DIY I was doing. Elaine from the hotel let me do into the office and helped me print and present the picture. Even in the days after the wedding the staff went above and beyond for us. We had the best time on our wedding day and have the hotel to thank.

Our reception and stay at Bunratty Castle Hotel was excellent, all the staff were fantastic and the food was gorgeous. All so accomodating to us, we even had an outdoor drinks reception! Which was extra special!! Everybody remarked how much they enjoyed the Hotel and the service they received. If any couple are looking for a venue then call to the Hotel and see what they have to offer. We loved every minute of it. We could not recommend David, Heather and all the staff enough.
Review by
We found the staff very helpful from the word go. They made every effort to accommodate us with any special requests (extra veggie options on the menu, bows for the chairs to match bridesmaid dresses, selection of table arrangements) and we were delighted with everything on our big day. The room looked beautiful, the food was delicious, staff were friendly and helpful. We could not have asked for more!
Review by

The staff (every single member) were brilliant - from management down to waiter/ress on the day were excellent. I would not change a single thing about the day and could not fault anything even if I tried to look for something to fault. They took care of everything and as a result I didn't have to worry about anything.

Where do I start? From my first enquiry they were so responsive. We arranged to visit the venue and were so impressed. Throughout the process of planning our wedding we found the venue approachable, responsive, friendly, and helpful. On the day? They couldn't have been better. The venue was stunning, the food was faultless and our wedding was perfect. Choosing Bunratty Castle Hotel was one of our best decisions. We could not complement them enough.

The team at Bunratty castle hotel were a dream to deal with, they were so helpful and such a pleasure to deal with. I had my ceremony in the hotel followed by the reception and they took care of all the décor and arrangements and even recommend a number of local suppliers to use for photos, music , flowers and the ceremony. I wanted an alternative to the usual 4 course meal and David Shelly gave me a number of options and on the day the guests were delighted with the variety of food and service received. Overall they took care of all the arrangements and the setting was perfect.

Cannot recommend the Bunratty Castle Hotel highly enough.

Bunratty Castle Hotel was the perfect venue! The staff were fantastic!! I was worried that planning a wedding from England was going to be tricky with only 1 trip over before the big day, but I was wrong. The staff made it just perfect. We stayed for a long weekend and many of our guests did the same. Many of our guests commented on how it was such a fantastic venue and how the staff were so much more attentive than the over here in England!! I wouldn't change a thing about our venue! Bunratty made it the best day of our lives!! Xxx

Bunratty and David Shelly were brilliant. They helped to make our day stress free and thoroughly enjoyable. I was able to contact them at any time and got quick responses to all my questions. They were extremely professional on the day and all of our guests had a great time. They gave us a great deal on the wedding package both with price and flexibility including allowing us to bring in some champagne for the toast. I would highly recommend Bunratty Castle Hotel.

to be very fair on this the service was good on the day bar 1 table ,the issue i had with the hotel came from u could be waiting weeks for call back from the manager or who ever u were trying to reach,what really let the hotel down was the day after paying the bill,no manager that we had dealt with was on duty,should have been better i think .

Would just like to thank ye for everything ye did for us on our special day,and would also like to thank david for all his help, he was an absolute gem... David, Magurite and Elaine were outstanding throughout the day itself and also during the planning stages. I organised the wedding from London and they made it feel easy to do so. I would recommend the Hotel to friends, every one of the 100 guests at the Wedding commented on the food and the friendless of the staff. One member of reception staff even went out to buy a guest a tooth brush as he had forgotten his! Every detail was perfect on the day and David made us relax during moments of nerves and stress! Thank you so much to all the fantastic staff at Bunratty Castle Hotel. everything about this hotel was perfect in every way! we would have no problem whatsoever recommending Bunratty Castle Hotel. everything was perfect the staff and the service were exemplary especially David and Elaine. We enjoyed every minute of our day and look forward to visiting the hotel again The staff at Bunratty Castle Hotel were amazing in helping us plan our day from the very first day we called out to see the hotel. We had no appointment and just popped in for a quick look ourselves and Lee spent an hour going through everything with us despite being busy with a chess tournament that was on that day. You can tell that David especially really loves his job and it is great to have someone like that involved in looking after your wedding. Bunratty was perfect for us I really don't think we'd have had as good a day anywhere else.

Hi Marguerite, Just a quick email to express our thanks for making our wedding celebration perfect. A special thanks to Javiar who really went over and beyond to take special care of us. John had gotten something in his eye, and was very upset by it...but he had all the staff huddled around him, even washing out his eye for him!! Within a few minutes his eye started to clear and was smiling again!!! All my guests had a great time, I would highly recommend this venue to anyone Many thanks again...

Dear Marguerite, It has been almost a week since our big day and we wanted to express our deep gratitude for the wonderful reception that we had. We really could not have asked for more. We appreciate all that you did for us in the final days leading up to our wedding and your generosity with regard to the final cost. All our guests commented on the wonderful food, service and the beautiful table arrangements. All of your staff were a credit to your hotel but we would particularly like to single out Javier for special mention. He put us at our ease from the very beginning, was extremely attentive to any need that we had and his professionalism, friendliness and courtesy helped in no small way to make our day so special. Many guests commented on his attention to detail and the manner in which he looked after everyone. Again, thank you very much Marguerite for your hard work and for such an unforgettable day. Kind regards,
