On the 16th of May my husband and I watched our dreams become a reality as we shared the most perfect day with our friends and family at Doonbeg. From sipping bubbles on the cobbles upon our arrival to sharing a very special romantic kiss under the arch of the main door to the ride down to the marquee in the golf cart....everything was simply perfect. Sylvia and her incredibly warm and friendly team left no stone unturned. They prepared for our day as if it was their day. The only negative was when our day was all over...no more popping to Doonbeg to meet Sylvia and the team....we just wished it could have gone on forever.Doonbeg was the best decision we could have made. We're already looking forward to returning on our anniversary!

Brian and I had our magical wedding in Trump International Doonbeg on 20th June 2015. It was the most perfect day I could ever ask for (Sylvia even managed to have the sunshine as I walked down the aisle!). From our first meeting with the ever calm Sylvia to our actual day nothing was ever too much, she just got us as a couple. I was looking for something a little different, getting married outside was a must for me – I wanted a mix of boho with elegance, this Trump International provided in spades. Each and every staff member who not do enough for both Brian and I or our guests. It really was a dream come true kind of day!! Sylvia and the staff really did make my dream come true.
Grace & Brian - June 2015
We celebrated our wedding day at Trump International Doonbeg on July 4th, 2015. An Irish / American couple returning to Ireland to celebrate their wedding in Orla's homeland & to show our American friends & family the magnificent west of Ireland! The setting of the resort is simply magical! We often think back to walking the beach & dunes after getting married. We felt removed from everything in a most exclusive setting. We almost felt that the lodge was exclusive to us for the entire weekend! The rooms & outlets are so luxurious with spectacular views of the west of Ireland. Watching the sun go down during dinner while sitting in the marquee was another moment that has remained with us....magical! What has made a permanent stamp in our hearts about our wedding at the Lodge are the people. The effort made to make our weekend one that we would cherish forever was so impressive. Every single person went above & beyond to make our wedding day & weekend go so seamlessly & exactly the way we envisioned it. Everything was done with such ease & with such warmth in the most genuine & sincere way. Joe, Sylvia & the entire team are absolutely incredible. I cannot speak highly enough of them. They made us feel like old friends from the moment we met with such grace & style. We will return to Doonbeg for many years to come to reminisce on our magical day & to say hello to our friends there!
Orla & Ryan - July 2015
From our first visit to Doonbeg, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. The exceptional sea view, five star accommodation & exceptional staff made it so easy to relax and enjoy our day. It is without doubt the finest resort in Ireland and the staff make it that way. Sylvia, Neisha, Paul & Michael couldn’t have helped and advised us any better from planning the marquee to looking after our guests with incredible food and wine throughout their stay. We are still receiving compliments on the five star experience our guests received for the entire weekend and we are forever grateful to Doonbeg for making our wedding the best day of our lives full of happy memories. It was truly magical – we only wish we could do it all again!

We really can't express enough how incredible our whole wedding experience was at Trump International Doonbeg. Right from our initial meeting with Sylvia we felt totally at ease. Sylvia is so professional yet personable she really makes you feel like you are the first couple to get married in Doonbeg and you can’t help but feel incredibly excited!! This reassurance coupled with the truly unique and stunning setting of Doonbeg we knew there was simply no other venue where we would rather celebrate our wedding. Throughout the course of our planning no query (however big or small) went unanswered so that by the time the wedding actually arrived there was nothing to do other than relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings with all of our family and friends. Our guests were genuinely blown away by the Hotel. Not only in terms of how beautiful it is but the whole atmosphere is just so relaxed and friendly. The staff went above and beyond during the course of our stay and we felt this had a huge impact in setting the tone of the wedding. We have had so much positive feedback since arriving home regarding the service, the food and how stunning the marquee looked. We are so sad that the wedding is now over as we just loved everything about it and really could not have hoped for more- we were really made to feel at home over the course of the few days! We have no doubt that returning to Doonbeg will be a regular occurrence for us for the rest of our lives as we now have so many amazing memories to look back on there.
