Wedding of our dreams at the Old Course Hotel
Well, the Old Course Hotel dispelled any myths about 'hotel weddings' that I had! The venue itself is obviously spectacular, but it still manages to surpass it's reputation. The views, the hotel facilities, and most importantly the hotel staff were outstanding.
We got married in the Conservatory that overlooks the 17th fairway. We couldn't believe our luck because the sun was shining without a cloud in the sky on a crisp October day. We had around 155 guests and I believe capacity is around 165 for this space - it felt full but not cramped. Jess and Tara (our amazing Wedding Coordinator and Wedding Operations Manager) took care of everything from set up, music etc - I didn't have to worry about a thing.
We then had our drinks reception in the Green Sheds where we had a two piece band for around two hours. We went off to town to get some pictures (thanks to Laura in the Concierge team who drove us around!), came back to get some pictures and then it was time for the wedding breakfast in the Hall of Champions. The food was fantastic - we were able to offer our guests three choices for each course and gave that back to the hotel around three weeks before. I would really recommend doing this - I'm happy we were able to offer a good choice. We then had a ceilidh and danced the night away!
I simply couldn't have asked for a better day. It was filled with joy and happiness in the most incredible setting. One of the highlights was our wedding coordinator Jess - it's difficult to put into words. She completely changed my experience from being a nervous, anxious, worried bride who was too scared to think about her wedding into a relaxed, excited, happy bride and I can't thank her enough. A true gem!
Magical wedding at the Old Course Hotel

Wonderful wedding x
Everything was fine
You will not be disappointed - absolute amazing, would recommend the OCH to anyone!
We really can't thank them enough for all that they have done. Thank you so much. 5+ star rating from us! *****
Our wedding coordinator was Laura, and admittedly she was the reason we ultimately booked. Her passion and love for weddings, her attention to detail, her clear pride in her venue and her ability to make you as a couple feel like the most important people ever was evident from the offset. No request was too much and she was very much a part of our entire journey.
Our wedding itself was better than we could ever have imagined. Arriving the day before, morning preparations, the ceremony, meal and evening reception - it was just perfect. All the staff were exceptionally polite and the day went without a hitch (and if anything did go wrong or not to plan, my husband and I weren't aware!) The food was incredible and we have received such wonderful comments from all our guests about how phenomenal our day was.
We honestly cannot recommend The Old Course Hotel as a venue enough.
The day of our dreams!
A very special mention has to go to Laura. Due to restrictions we had to change our wedding date from 2020 to 2021 and Laura made this change so easy to do and helped to put our minds at ease. She was always at the end of the phone or on emails to answer my daft questions or to calm me down if I was stressed! Nothing was too much hassle for her and we honestly feel like we have a friend for life in her now. I'm going to miss speaking to her on a regular basis! She really is an absolute credit to the OCH team!
Thank you again to everyone at the OCH. Our wedding day was everything we could have wished for and more. I just wish we could do it all again :)
Out of this world!
The Old Course really have got a brilliant team on their hands and they are extremely fortunate and should be so proud. We are only one of their customers and if the service we had is anything to go by they will no doubt have a raft of Other wonderful reviews.
On the day of the wedding itself everything was smooth, the venue and setting beautiful, the food was exceptional, drink was flowing and the craic/fun was a plenty! The support staff throughout the hotel on the day were nothing short of brilliant too.
Thank you so very much I’d recommend them in a heartbeat.
