I just wanted to thank you both for all your help and attention to detail with the function we held last night in the Brent Suite.

The room was so tastefully set up, the food was just fantastic,the screen with pictures was enjoyed by all and having the background music sorted was great, even though we didn’t get up to dance!! Too much talking going on!!! We would also like to thank Ben,the barman so much he was just such a professional and dealt with everyone so well he is a credit to the hotel.

We have had a few functions at the Marine and have always found it so professional and will not hesitate in recommending it to any friends or family.

Hi, just a short note to say that I was at a wedding on Friday and both myself and my family had a lovely time. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I’d like to also highlight that one of the staff called Connie was exceptionally nice and made my two children feel very special during the meal. Myself and my wife had our wedding reception in the Marine 15 years ago and were delighted that the place still had the feeling. Thank you for a lovely time.

I just want to say thank you very much for all your help and could you thank everyone who dealt with us over the weekend. Short films are tricky to make and trying to co ordinate feeding the crew can be a tough job, but the staff at the Marine made the whole experience a pleasure; everyone was delighted with their meals and everything went off very smoothly, so I couldn’t be happier.

We would like to thank you so much for organising our wedding on August 19th. We and all our guests had a fantastic day. We couldn’t get over how well you all looked after us. The ceremony room was absolutely beautiful and the dining room was laid out perfectly. The food and service was outstanding and every one of our guests were very impressed. The bridal suite was beautiful and the extra touches etc really made it very special for us.

Please pass on our sincere best wishes & thanks to all management and staff who could not do enough for us on the day and even the following morning. We appreciate it all very much. It was a day we will all remember forever.

My daughter had her wedding reception with you on 1st June and I just wanted to compliment you and all your staff for such a terrific day. From start to finish – your staff were exceptional in there dealing with the guests. I work with the public and am very aware as to how challenging it can be at times! and how you always hear complaints rather than compliments. I would not hesitate in recommending your hotel and I thank you most sincerely for giving us treasured memories of the most important day in our lives.

Sarah- availed of the package deal and all of the people involved in that were also extremely professional in their dealings with us. I hope to get back soon to have a meal and enjoy your lovely atmosphere

A big thank you to John and especially you Elina. I won’t hesitate to recommend you and the Marine hotel in the future.

First of all we want to thank you for helping us with a reservation at The Marine Hotel. Our stay was absolutely fabulous. As we had an early morning departure to Dublin Airport the staff not only provided breakfast but they also made fresh sandwiches for our group to take to the airport. It was such a nice gesture. Please convey our thanks to all the staff at The Marine Hotel. And thank you for assistance for making it all possible. We look forward to seeing you in 2013. Thank you.

We just wanted to send a mail to say thank you regarding our wedding reception at your hotel in May. Even the rain that day didn’t dampen any spirits and the whole day was fantastic from start to finish. Your staff working that day played a huge part in that.

We would especially like to highlight and thank Irene Wyse who handled the who event from the original booking to the reception itself. She was always very professional, helpful and took out all the stress involved in organising a wedding which we were very grateful for.

There is not a single thing we could complain about and we would not hesitate in recommending your hotel to our friends and family.

On behalf of BPW Howth I would like to thank you for the excellent presentation of the hotel for our Annual AGM on March 26th. The meeting room upstairs, the coffee/tea and scones on arrival, the lunch in the Rathlin Suite was excellent and the soup was hot and the sandwiches fresh.

The evening event was a triumph both for ourselves as a group and for the hotel. The newly revamped Rathlin Suite looks fantastic. The room shone and provided a great backdrop for our guests. Dinner was of the highest standard and the service was excellent.

I would like to mention both Shirley and Edward for their continuing patience when dealing with us as a group and for the enormous effort put in by them to make all the staff aware of what was going on and ensuring that everything we requested was made available to us.

The feed back from the guests who stayed overnight was excellent also.

Our grateful thanks for helping to make our event a very successful AGM for BPW.
