"I am now just coming back down to earth following our wonderful wedding in Caisleáin Óir. I was brought up in Annagry but left the village many years ago, however wished to get married back home. From the moment my husband and I enquired about weddings with James we just knew everything would be looked after capably and with reduced stress for us. James is a treat to work with in staging an event like a wedding. No idea was too big, small or silly and it was clear that we were to have it the way we want it to make it special for us. James utilises his experience and know-how excellently and guided us towards a shared vision for the day that he and his staff pulled off flawlessly.
We had a lot of guests travelling to Annagry for the first time to join us for their wedding. The fantastic welcome they received at Caisleain Oir, coupled with the outstanding weather we were lucky enough to get, ensured each guest was thorougly impressed with the area. The stunning view of the bay that greets guests as they arrive, and indeed as they wake in the morning sets the scene very well. The food available in Caisleain Oir is outstanding; fresh, expertly cooked and presented and the most generous of portion sizes, ensures everyone from fussy eater to foodie is delighted.
The attention to detail that went into our wedding was incredible. James and his team worked tirelessly to ensure each of our guests had a good time and all our wants were met. From the moment we stepped inside Caisleain Oir as a married couple we were off duty and did not have to think or worry about a single logistic. There were lots of little surprises along the way laid on by Caisleain Oir that were a real treat for us.
The new honeymoon suite was a real surprise. We did not see it until the evening of our wedding and it really is an outstanding feature of the hotel. I won't ruin the surprise by going into too much detail but to say we were bowled over is an under statement! Each of our guests shared the same opinion of the hotel, the staff and the locality. They all felt that they were not just attending a wedding but they were on an amazing holiday. Most of our guests have already started planning their return visit so the local tourist industry does benefit from the fantastic service offered at events.
The day after the wedding was spent on Carrickfinn beach, our own wee gem. The hangovers were well and truly dispensed with by the glorious white sandy beach, the crystal clear water (most people managed a swim) and the beautiful atmosphere. We then went to nearby Leo's Tavern for a change of scenery. The team at Caisleain Oir made sure taxis were arranged for our full party and a nice welcome back greeted us for 'one for the road' later that evening.
All in all, whether you are thinking of staying here for a break or thinking of booking your wedding or other event here - do it. You will not be disappointed. World class hospitality is the standard here. You and your guests will be glad you did. Thank you again to James and all the staff for making our wedding truly the greatest day of our lives."

"We recently had our wedding reception here and can honestly say that James, Michelle and the staff at the Caisleáin Óir made our day the most perfect day in every way possible. The flexibility for ideas with regards to the planning set our minds at ease and the execution of these plans on the day was more than we could have asked for.
As for the meal, both our families have been raving about it since and everyone who came from Glasgow and beyond for our Wedding said they would be sure to return as it was an unforgettable experience.
Myself and my new wife cannot thank the Caisleáin enough for making our day an amazing one and we cannot recommend this venue enough for anyone looking to get married in this most beautiful part of the world. It's only a shame I can't give more than 5 stars."
Debbie & Patrick
"We had our wedding in Caisleáin Óir on Friday 14th July. It was the most incredible event ever thanks to James and all his staff. Nothing was left out and the big details and the small details were taken care of. From the pictures of us on the menus to the heaps of food that kept landing out to the incredible honeymoon suite to the extremely high quality of food. The food and the staff were class. Thank you again so much. Unbelievable hotel."
Anne Marie & Tony
"Myself & my wife had our wedding reception in the Caisleáin Óir Hotel last Saturday. The minute I first called James McDevitt over a year ago to enquire about the hotel's availability for our wedding, I knew this venue wouldn't disappoint! The level of attention to detail in terms of accommodating our pre wedding ideas was simply incredible. We honestly couldn't have wished for a better venue! The function room was immaculate in every way, first class service without delay along with first class food & plenty of it!! When the night was over & we entered the honeymoon suite we both couldn't believe the luxury that awaited us! Again every corner covered & beyond our wildest expectations, i.e Spacious Jacuzzi!! I'd describe the Caisleáin Óir wedding experience for us as the gift that kept giving & our guests seemed to be as equally impressed! The breakfast the following morning was also tasty as could be! The one thing I'd say about this fantastic hotel is that its food has a unique distinctive taste that can only leave you longing for more. There's a very homely atmosphere & feel to the place from the moment you enter the front door, to the foyer, to the bars etc. Massive thanks to James, Michelle, Joe & every single member of staff! You done yourselves and ourselves proud!! For any wedding or event you may be planning you can't go wrong booking here!"
