We have the best day of our lives - 04-05-2013. The staff, the food and the attention to details was amazing. The Shearwater was everything we dreamt of as our wedding venue. No ask was too big. Ever attention to detail was carried out with care and pleasure. A very big Thank You - Harry and Shirley

Jarlath & Serena 16th March 2013

Thank you so much to Annette and the managers Jacob, Fergal, Connor and all the staff at the Carlton Shearwater for all you did on our wedding day, especially to Annette and to Jacob. The day went perfectly, we really couldn't have wished for a better day. From the moment we entered the hotel with the reception we got in the lobby, to the excellent and brisk service with the food, the way the top table was served in sync was excellent and so many people have commented on it. The service you provided from start to finish was excellent. Thank you so much.

Tom & Jane Kelly 9th February 2013

We recently celebrated our wedding with you on the 9th of February 2013, it was the best day of our lives and the efforts all of you made were out of this world. Not just to us but all of our friends commented on how excellently and professionally they were treated and the brilliant service that was provided to them. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would (and have!) recommend you to anyone. Once again we wish to express our sincere gratitude to you all especially Annette, Jacob and all the staff on the night itself. Thanks a million folks and we hope to see you again soon sometime.
Tom and Jane Kelly.

Neilan Wedding 8th September 2012

To all the staff of the Carlton Shearwater a HUGE thank you. You made our wedding "magical" and every detail to attention was 100%. Food was fantastic, hospitality and friendliness was just fantastic. This hotel should be so pleased with their reputation. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone considering their wedding reception. Kind regards Caroline & Tomas Neilan
