We will start at the tart, and that was our introduction to Mary Ann. To be honest we were expecting a sale rep, like so may places. How wrong we were! Mary Ann throughout our planning process was amazing - so down to earth and approachable, made things easy through her knowledge, experience and fantastic personality. She kept us from losing the plot, at the same time giving us great options and ideas. A quick mention to the staff on the day too. So friendly, you can tell it's genuinely family run type of business. They also made sure to look after the groomsmen, often the forgotten members of the wedding party!
The food - oh, the food! Everyone raved about it after. From the champagne sorbet to the awesome mains, the meal was flawless. Throughout the night they also kept food flowing, you couldn't be hungry. Word of warning for the food tasting itself - there's too much deliciousness, serious risk of eating yourself towards a food induced coma!
The Venue - great reception area and a beautiful building, all surpassed by the ballroom itself. It's class. Very big and airy, with plenty of natural light which was what swung the venue for us, rather than artificial lighting. Lots of space between tables too, not on top of each other. Later in the night, the size of the ballroom meant most guests were there beside you, not scattered throughout a big hotel complex - big win! Aside from the ballroom, the interior of the hotel is lovely too, a traditional style hotel with really nice rooms. The outside lit up at night time, is like a postcard.
Quick mention on location. Having people coming from all directions, it was the best of both worlds in that whilst you are in a nice quiet woodland surrounding, you can be in Cork City or on the M8 in under 10 minutes too.
We know everyone will recommend the venue where they got married, that's fair enough... but we think we picked a winner and would honestly say that Vienna Woods was the perfect wedding venue for us.

Myself and my husband had our reception ere for our wedding in November from the very first moment we saw the place we knew it was for us. We fell in love with the outstanding decor and the most beautiful ball room there was no point even looking elsewhere, nothing would compare. Michael and his team went above and beyond for us and my family the staff were outstanding and so kind, me and the bridal party stayed the night beforehand best decision ever! Everything was done with a hundred and ten percent effort. I wish I could do it all over again. People are still talking about how beautiful the room was done up. Thank you all at Vienna Woods Hotel, from the newlyweds!!

For all you lovebirds looking for something exceptional for your special wedding day... the search is over. Michael and all of his team have you covered from the very first encounter with him he will be there 200% to assist your every request. With no difficulty at all my sister and her new husband chose Vienna Woods shortly after their spectacular wedding display show last year and on her day they didn't disappoint. He made them feel at ease with the planning process offered advice and put a time management plan in place so that the happy couple could enjoy the day to the fullest. Michael has a special personality he has a great deal of patience, kindness and after being a guest at my sisters special day I could see him go above and beyond for us all... and he will for you too I know it... because he actually cares genuinely. So as I said before please don't stress yourself any further and make an easy decision choose The Stunning Vienna Woods Hotel it will be the best decision you can make.

Unbelievable Wedding Venue!! We had our wedding here and I can not praise Michael and his staff enough. From the very start everything in the planning was made so easy and I really didn't think about the reception side of this too much during the wedding planning as I felt it was being completely taken care of and I was right to think so. Maryanne looked after us the week/day of the wedding and nothing was an issue. The ballroom is beautiful and all our guests are still raving about the food which was both tasty and plentiful. Everything about the day was perfect and the staff couldn't do enough for us or our guests. We ended up staying the night after the wedding as well and again the staff went above and beyond any other hotel I've stayed in especially Shulagh who looks after breakfast. You will not regret your decision to book Vienna Woods. They gave us the best day ever!!

We had our wedding here on the 11th July. Michael and the staff were so welcoming and easy to deal with from the beginning. The ballroom is a lovely size with lots of natural light. The food was fantastic from start to finish, including dinner,late night finger food and breakfast. We ate in the restaurant the following day too and it was also lovely. All staff in every area of the hotel are friendly and so accommodating. Nothing is a problem. With the recent refurbishment of the bedrooms too, made all of our guests stay even more special. Thank you so much to Michael and his team for looking after us in July.

We had our wedding in Vienna Woods in October this year, we can not recommend this hotel enough. From start to finish the staff were exceptional, going out of their way to make our day as special as possible, nothing was a problem. When we got engaged we arranged a meeting with Vienna Woods and went no where else as we were so impressed. Our guest's still speak about the food, it was excellent aswell as the service. As a couple we have been to many wedding's and we know the standard has to be very high with big weddings to please everyone, and we could not fault one bit of our day. Michael the manager dealt with us from day one and again he was so helpful, and professional in every way. Friends of ours have booked their wedding for next year as they were so impressed with the hotel on our day. Thanks again to the hotel, ye were fantastic.

We got married in Vienna Woods in December 2017 and we cannot recommend this hotel enough. The hotel itself is stunning. At Christmas time it looks magical. They go all out with the decorations. The hotel has been renovated in the last few years and is just beautiful and so cosy in the winter. The staff are so helpful and kind, nothing was too much for them. The food was amazing, all our guests commented on how good the food was. We have visited this hotel many times since and have received first class service each and every time. If you are looking for a wedding venue or just a place to stay when visiting Cork, you need to check this hotel out!!

We got married in Vienna Woods in Nov 2017 and if you're thinking of booking here for your wedding then I can't recommend it enough. Mary Ann and her time were outstanding from the very first moment we met them and couldn't have been more helpful. She really took the stress out of planning our reception. The food was excellent and we got loads of great feedback from the guests. Location wise it is so near to the city center and airport which is ideal for guests that are traveling. The bridal suite was beautiful and it really is great value for money!

We had our wedding here on 02 June 2018. From the first time we met Michael we were treated like friends. Nothing was a problem and anything we needed to know re wedding Michael was always on the other side of the phone or email. Our wedding day came and everything was brilliant Food was out standing, staff very friendly and courteous especially kay, Dominic, Marcella and Caroline who looked after us brilliantly. I had a few tables i needed set up on the day (stuff dropped in day before) e.g. memorial table and sweet table etc and omg they were done to perfection. The one thing I loved was I didn't have to worry about anything on the day Michael and his team had everything under control and they went above and beyond our expectations. everyone at the wedding had a fantastic day and are still raving about the food and the hotel and how everything was done so fluidly.I would highly recommend The Vienna Woods Hotel for your wedding or any occasion . They are a team that make everything perfect for you. Thank you Michael, MaryAnn,Susan (in reception who always made me smile when i called in) Abdualla ( who ran a tight ship during the meal) and all the team who helped out in anyway for making our special day so memorable. love from Padraig & Margaret Hally

I have just returned from my daughter Gemma and her fiancé Billy's wedding which was held in the hotel "Fitzgerald's Vienna Woods" on Saturday 28th April. The first term that comes to mind is "WOW" I cannot praise "Michael Magner" and all of his staff highly enough. His hospitality, attention to detail and service was second to none. If there are any future Bride's and Groom's reading this I would highly recommend that you book a show round you will not be disappointed. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the service staff for their care and professionalism and to the Chef and his team for the wonderful food that we were served. All the guests that have contacted me have all said what an amazing time they had and wished they could do it all again this weekend.

What a wonderful weekend we had at my sisters wedding this weekend. Firstly the venue is so welcoming! Secondly the food was incredible....the whole wedding thought so! I know because I was one of the awkward guests with food allergies and the staff literally bent over backwards to accommodate us. I never tasted such fabulous gluten free deserts! The chocolate cake... I was stuffed but still finished it and I’m dreaming of it since! The kids had such a ball and the atmosphere was really child friendly. Thank you all so much, wonderful family memories made.

We couldn't recommend Vienna Woods more highly for a wedding reception. We had our reception there in March and everything about it was fab! Maryanne, our wedding coordinator, was a pleasure to deal with. She was extremely friendly, efficient and obliging. She made planning our wedding very easy. On our wedding day we were treated like royalty by Maryanne, Michael, Sam and all the staff. The food and service was complimented by many of our guests. The food is locally sourced and is very tasty. There was plenty of everything and they came around with seconds. Wine glasses were also kept topped up. Our guests were also very impressed with their rooms. We can't thank Vienna Woods enough for making our wedding day so special and easy.
