We got married on Inishbofin in July 2011. The island of Inishbofin is a stunning location for a wedding and the Inishbofin House Hotel is an absolutely fantastic venue.

The fact that the hotel closes during the winter months initially caused us some concern as it became evident that the staff employed when the hotel opened in the spring of 2011 were largely new staff who had no previous experience of weddings in this hotel. However, when the weekend of our wedding arrived we realised very quickly that our concerns were unfounded. The staff were incredible especially the manager Kathleen, Shane and Claire. The attention to detail, the food on the day and the service were flawless.

The bedrooms are spacious and well maintained. There is a large bright relaxation room on the first floor overlooking the front garden with magnificent sea views. It was perfect for the bridal party’s preparations on the morning of the wedding.

The function room was set up beautifully without any input from the bride or groom. The chair covers and centre pieces available in the hotel were perfect. We had a champagne reception outside on the lawn after the church ceremony (we were very lucky with the weather). Again the service, the staff availability and their reactions to different requests from our guests were exceptional.

We will remember our wedding weekend with nothing but thanks and appreciation to all of the management and staff in this hotel and we highly recommend it as a venue for any couple looking for a truly amazing wedding experience.

Nick & Elaine

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are amazing. Cliff view has no view!!

Amazing Place Great People we had an absolute whale of a time on our Wedding Day. What a day we couldn't rate the place highly enough the whole weekend was absolutely perfect from the food and the staff in the hotel who had the warmest of Irish welcomes and quite literally couldn't do enough for us thanks to Kathleen and Sean in the hotel. BEST DAY EVER if we could do it all again we would well I would anyway.

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. Arrived on the early boat, room was freezing and no towels in the room. I mentioned it to staff she said the radiator may be airlocked. Heating came on in the evening it took ages to warm up the room. Staff were friendly except the barman. On the Sat night, we ate in the bar, we were very disappointed with the barfood and staff. Barman apologised to the other tables for the delay in serving the food but we received no apology even though we had to send back the food as it was not fully cooked. On Saturday, i had a facial in the spa, the therapist was lovely, however the spa was like an icebox and there was no music during the hour I was having the treatment.

We arrived at days hotel, late on a Friday evening after sailing from Westport. The friendly bar man couldn't do enough, a hot meal despite it being long after when the restaurant was supposed to be closed. Good food, good wine, top notch experience.
