Wedding Testimonial Claire & Domhnall July 2014

My wife and I go married at the Red Cliff Lodge in July 2014. We do not live in Ireland so we were planning an Irish wedding from Australia. From the first time we contacted John at the Red Cliff lodge we got a good feeling about the venue. John was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for him. He was always prompt in replying to emails and was very helpful in making suggestions in regard to local musicians to help us with the wedding.

The Red Cliff lodge is an amazing property. The restaurant and reception decor is exceptional and there is a beautiful outdoor area where all of our guests enjoyed the drinks reception, on a warm summer’s day. John, Brid and all the staff were so welcoming. Nothing was too much to ask and my wife and I were made feel very special. John was very accommodating and allowed us to add several personal touches to the venue that really added to our day.

The food at the Red Cliff is amazing. The menu that John and his chefs put together was top class. From the canapés through to the desert, the food was cooked to perfection and displayed elegantly. So many of our guests commented on how good the food was. We had vegetarians and coeliacs who were accommodated with their food choices.

The Red Cliff also has six stunning rooms. We booked them all out for the weekend and some of our guests stayed in them. Everything was perfect with the rooms.  

All in all, the Red Cliff Lodge is a 5 star location!  Thank you to John, Brid and all your staff for making our day very special and memorable.

Wedding Testimonial Rory & Treasa April 2013

“Thank you for all the work that you put in to making our wedding day so special. Everything went so smoothly and we both felt that we could be totally relaxed and leave it in your very capable hands. The venue is beautiful and all those who stayed loved the rooms and the view over Spanish Point. However the main reason that we chose the Red Cliff Lodge was because of the food - you did not let us down. Every wedding guest has commented on the food and said that it was the best meal they had ever had at a wedding and we felt the same - we were lucky enough to sample everything on the day and it was all delicious. Your wine suggestions were well received too.....A little too well in some cases!! All the staff on the day were brilliant but we would like to say a special thank you to you John for keeping everything moving as well as going above and beyond the call of duty!

Thanks again - we are looking forward to coming back to Spanish Point and to having a meal in the Red Cliff again soon.”

Wedding Testimonial Susan & Kevin September 2012

“We had our wedding in Red Cliff Lodge in September 2012. It was the first wedding in Red Cliff Lodge and John and Staff did absolutely everything to pull out all the stops for us. The weather was fabulous on the day and the view from the sunroom looking out over the sea was just beautiful. We were able to cut the cake outside in the courtyard with the sea shimmering in front of us, it was perfect. Everything from the sparkling wine and canapés reception to the wedding meal was beautifully presented and the quality of the food was top notch. The venue is intimate and beautiful, really lends itself to a small wedding. John was happy to have the music play for as long as we wanted which was a bonus, and on the day had organised lots of extra little touches such as lovely personalised menus which really added to the table settings . The accommodation in Red Cliff Lodge is pure luxury and we and our guests were treated like royalty for the whole weekend. Thanks to John and staff for making our day so special and for being available at all times to answer our many queries, nothing was too much trouble for them. We had the most fantastic day and really look forward to visiting Red Cliff Lodge again.”
