Time and time again, when Shearwater Hotel’s wedding team meet with wedding couples, it seems the most important deal breaker is the menu.
Every couple expects great quality cuisine, plenty of it, and they want their guests to rave about it and the hotel for years to come. Shearwater Hotel has this covered from start to finish.
Head chef Gary Murphy and his team are passionate about food, presentation and taste. He gives his assurance that his food is the most memorable part of the day, along with timely and professional table service and a team who will go the extra mile.
While every aspect of a wedding in Shearwater Hotel raises the bar, people are booking weddings as far ahead as 2020 based on their famous wedding dishes - a favourite being the beef dish or oat-crusted Clonakilty black pudding starter.
“Our food is freshly prepared and restaurant plated,” chef Gary says. “I ensure every couple meets with me, tastes my food, and asks questions. Menus will be tweaked as they wish. Our wedding team are passionate about food and service, and I encourage intimate tastings to help couples feel confident in booking their wedding with us.
“This hotel is all about food and service with a family-friendly hands-on atmosphere. In particular, I love preparing for the barbecue on the day after the wedding. It gives me the chance to provide some good wholesome food and show another side to what we can offer.”
Wedding co-ordinator Noel Fahy says: “Couples need to know that no stone will be left unturned in creating their special day. They need to know that their wedding will represent them, as no two weddings should be the same. Lately, we have had a number of weddings booked through the groom-to-be.
“He attended a wedding here in the past, thought the food and service was amazing, and brought his fiancé to view the hotel for their wedding. She may not have considered us in her list of hotels, but once they meet with us, taste our food, view the ballroom, understand the excellent value we offer, and see how committed we are, they book with us. It is a fantastic feeling and it never gets old.”
