Gorey still a top des­ti­na­tion for wed­dings

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

THE pop­u­lar­ity of Gorey as a lo­ca­tion for wed­dings shows no sign of slow­ing down.

Many cou­ples re­cently trav­elled from neigh­bour­ing coun­ties to at­tend the Au­tumn wed­ding af­ter­noon in the Am­ber Springs Ho­tel to see the venue, meet sup­pli­ers, and pick up tips and ideas for their big day. More than 15 ex­hibitors were present on the day.

Wed­ding and events co-or­di­na­tor Deb­o­rah Ste­wart said that she and the wed­ding team were over­whelmed to see so many en­thu­si­as­tic cou­ples on the day.

‘The wed­ding af­ter­noon is a very im­por­tant event at the ho­tel,’ added gen­eral man­ager Eib­hear Coyle. ‘Weeks of hard work go into it so it was re­ally great to see a re­turn. We were de­lighted to see so many fa­mil­iar faces on the day.’

‘There were also some pre­vi­ous brides in at­ten­dance re­turn­ing with sib­lings and friends,’ he added. ‘Word of mouth is such pow­er­ful thing. We are so grate­ful for it and it goes so show we are do­ing things right and de­liv­er­ing a qual­ity prod­uct to our cou­ples’.

The vis­i­tors got the chance to speak to the var­i­ous ex­hibitors, and to see the ho­tel’s pri­vate wed­ding en­trance, ball­room and sev­eral guest rooms in­clud­ing the hon­ey­moon suite, which had just been fully re­fur­bished in time for the show­case. There was also great in­ter­est in the new fam­ily suites which are launch­ing very soon.

Eib­hear said they re­ceived many con­firmed book­ings on the day and many since.
