“Wedding of our dreams at Vienna Woods, Cork”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

We recently had our wedding reception at Vienna Woods Hotel, in August 2013, and we can't recommend it highly enough. From the moment we met with the Hotel Director Michael Magner and his team almost a year before our wedding, we knew that we would chose Vienna Woods as our venue. Michael has the uncanny knack of making you feel that your wedding is the single and most important wedding in the world! The team was there at every stage along the way; always courteous at the end of the phone when we rang with questions and queries. We were particularly impressed with the level of communication on the immediate run up to the wedding day. No problem was too big or too small!

On the day itself, everything was perfect. On our arrival, it was obvious to us that our guests were thoroughly enjoying the arrival reception and surroundings. This was really important to us. The ballroom was decorated magnificently. The lighting was beautiful and helped to create a really special ambiance. The team’s attention to detail was obvious. We had delicate home-made clay centrepieces, that we had delivered to the hotel the day before. The team really took care of them! They were perfectly displayed, just as we imagined them looking on the day. The food was of the highest standard (and we’ve been to weddings up and down the country at this stage!). It correlated exactly with the quality that we experienced at our menu-tasting evening. It was really important to us that all of our guests got the same quality of food as the top table, and given the compliments that we've received since our day, it's obvious that that was the case: people have been raving about the quality of the food. So hat’s off to the head-chef and all the catering team for exceeding our highest expectations! With their collective talent of creating a relaxed atmosphere while upholding the most professional standards of service, the floor and bar staff impressed us from the minute we arrived into the wee hours!

For our travelling guests, particularly the families, the holiday villas behind the hotel were ideal. Our families loved that they could feel at home away from home. Definitely check out the villas as an accommodation option - they’re brand new, well decorated, very comfortable and good value for money. Plus, there’s a great view over the river from up there – lovely photo op!

Overall, we had the best day of our lives, and it was largely down to the Michael and the staff at Vienna Woods. Thank you all so much, from the bottom of our hearts! Lisa and Sean, Limerick.

This is the second Birthday celebration that I have attended in Vienna Woods in the last year. And both have been truly enjoyable occasions. Both dining rooms were beautifully decorated, ideal for the little children that were included in the party to have some freedom. The service on both occasions was truly excellent, very friendly and relaxed. The food was delicious with generous portions, but so yummy. I would thoroughly recommend this as a venue for a special occasion.

Stayed in Fitzgerald's Vienna Woods Hotel for 3 nights during a trip to Cork City, Foto Island and Cobh. Excellent staff which are very friendly and helpful. Location was ideal for our trip especially the hassle free parking at the hotel. Breakfast and dinner could not be faulted as there was plenty of variety to choose from. If the dining room was in the older part of the building it would have been so much nicer as the dining room was quite small and lacked character. The only disapointment was the bedroom which had a little window which overlooked the side of a cliff. I would highly recommend this hotel for its location, excellent staff and value for money.

Have attended quite a few weddings here and each time has exceeded the other. Food is unreal rooms are clean and comfortable. Well worth a look. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good location near the city with a country feel.

We recently stayed in one of the 4 bedroom villas. They were clean and well appointed, except as a previous reviewer mentioned, no dishwasher tabs or laundry soap. Bedrooms were a nice size, and the full bathroom in each was a definite plus! The villas are up the hill from the hotel, but were an easy walk to the hotel for dinner or drinks. They are also centrally located with just a short cab ride or bus to Cork city. We enjoyed our stay, and would recommend to friends and family going to that area of Ireland.

Dear jjmc085,

Many thanks for taking time to review our hotel, we were delighted to be able to look after you during your stay here.

With regards to the dishwasher tablets as they are self catering holiday villas we would not usually provide such items. We will definitely be looking into providing them in the near future to help improve our guests overall experience here at Fitzgeralds Vienna Woods Hotel.

We look forward to welcoming you back through our doors again in the near future.

The common areas of the hotel are very nice and quite attractive but we were disappointed in our room. Based on what we had read and were expecting the end result was disappointing. The room was clean but quite worn. The room was average in size and was clean but could use a makeover.The grounds are lovely and the staff was helpful and the hotel was probably at one time very nice and quite upscale.

Dear Holidayelf,

Many thanks for taking the time to share your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your time spent with us.

In relation to your other remarks, we would like to outline that when we took over the property 6 years ago we created a capital expenditure program which included annual renovation works to the 18th century country house. This work is on-going, granted at a slower pace than initially forecasted, due to the economic climate, which unfortunately is out of our control, but changes and improvements are constant here at Vienna Woods Hotel.

The building dates back to 1845, the original architectural features and restored artwork adds an element of old world vintage charm which we have added to and maintain and improve upon year on year.

Thanks for taking the time to share your comments with us. We are delighted you enjoyed your time with us recently, we look forward to welcoming you back to Fitzgeralds Vienna Woods Hotel in the future.

Kind Regards,
All the team here at Fitzgeralds Vienna Woods Hotel

Spent a couple nights at this hotel and the sister hotel in Adare, Fitzgerald Woodlands House. They are both great. Great service and the hospitality was fantastic. I had a great trip to Ireland because of it! The Fitzgerald Family, all of them, were very warm and welcoming.
