Let's give you some background on each of the team members: Once you've been introduced, you'll know you're in good hands!
Síle Browne - Wedding Manager
Friendly professionalism is what you look for when organising your wedding, and that is what you get when you contact Síle, our sales & marketing manager.

Alan Donnery - Wedding Consultant
With the Kenmare Bay Hotel since 2007, Alan has the bubbly personality and friendly approach that make him an invaluable member of our wedding team. His recent engagement has made him an even more enthusiastic devotee of all the important little details and personal touch that make the bride and groom's special day perfect. He is always on hand with expert advice
Most likely to say :"Of course, we can do that for you. Nothing is too much trouble."
First impressions count, and our receptionists ensure that the welcome you and your wedding guests receive will be perfect. Our front office supervisor, Dani, and her team of four other receptionists will look after your wedding party and help you in any way they can during your wedding preparations. Exceptionally friendly and efficient, they make your guests their top priority.
Most likely to say: " That's no problem at all, I'll see to it for you."
Hanneke Vermolen - Reservations Manager

Most likely to say: "Leave that with me and I will sort it out for you."
Noreen Sheehan - Accommodation Manager
Noreen is a Kenmare Bay Hotel stalwart.

She manages her diligent team with exceptional efficiency and always insists on perfect standards.
Most likely to say: "I want this room cleaned from top to bottom."
Folkert Laumans, Our Head Chef & Martin Mirejovsky, Our Sous Chef
With many aspects of a wedding meal to consider, our Head Chef and Sous Chef have an abundance of experience between them. They are extremely passionate about cooking, and it shows. You only have to get them talking about food to know that you're in expert hands.
Folkert oversees a team of talented chefs and demands nothing but the very best for each and every wedding.
Most likely to say: "If that's what the Bride & Groom want, then that's what they'll have."
Mossie Foley, Chauffeur
Many brides are nervous before their big day, but when chauffeur Mossie arrives at your door in the complimentary wedding car to take you to the church, you know you are in good hands. Any jitters soon disappear as Mossie reassures you with a smile, a joke and a friendly face. When the service is over, he'll whisk you to your photo location (where a couple of surprises await) and then he will deliver you to the hotel with great fanfare.
Most likely to say: "Take your time, there's no rush - just enjoy every minute of your day."
Helen Foley, Wedding Supervisor
Helen is Tom's right-hand woman. She is the one who checks every detail to ensure the banqueting suite looks perfect before everyone arrives and remains close by to greet and seat all your guests. Helen believes in getting the little things right, keeping a close eye on everyone and everything so that the reception is a success. She is renowned for knowing precisely what each guest needs - often before they know it themselves.
Most likely to say: "I'll bring you some more vegetables - I see you're running low."
So that's your team. Along with General Manager Andrew Rees, they can't wait to meet you and give you the wedding of your dreams.
