We recently got married in The Ocean Sands Hotel and cannot recommend Olivia and her team highly enough. From the moment we started planning our wedding nothing was too much of an ask. Olivia was always there to answer our questions and help in any way possible. On the day of our wedding, everything ran smoothly, the function room looked wonderful and the food was perfect! We had a lot of guests who travelled from England for the weekend and they all left with fantastic memories of Enniscrone and the wonderful service they received at The Ocean Sands. The newly renovated Presidential Suite looks beautiful as well. We are so grateful to Olivia and her team for all their hard work in ensuring we had the most amazing day! Thank you!

Olivia, Mark and the whole team at the Ocean Sands Hotel made our Wedding Day perfect! The venue is laid out really well with a spacious function room benefitting from breathtaking views of the ocean. The rooms are easily accessible for guests and not to mention the tremendous food that is always top notch, without fail! We worked with Olivia for a whole year in advance of our day, nothing was too much, too far, too soon or too crazy! She was as much, if not even more excited than me to go along with all my surprises for the day. She even had a surprise for me with the brand new bridal suite! She was the most marvellous Wedding Planner I could have asked for.

Great place to have your wedding reception. Our wedding Coordinator was brilliant and very helpful. Staff were great too. I would recommend this place to anyone that is getting married.Emer & Patrick December 2018
We had a wonderful day in the Ocean Sands for our wedding. Olivia couldn’t have been more helpful from the first time we met, any queries were answered promptly and she also recommended various suppliers to us. The food on the day was fabulous and the room was beautifully decorated for both the ceremony and reception. All our guests had a wonderful day.
We couldn’t be any more grateful to Olivia & the staff for making our day perfect. We would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding. Maureen & Eamonn November 2018
The Ocean Sands Hotel was the perfect venue for our big day. The function room was decorated beautifully, the food was fantastic and pictures on Enniscrone beach just behind the hotel were amazing. We had so many compliments on how smoothly the day went, it was all down to the lovely Olivia and her team.
We had an amazing day and would highly recommend it to any couples thinking of holding their special day there.Raymond & Siobhan November 2018
The Ocean Sands Hotel was the most incredible venue for our wedding that we could have asked for.
It was more than we had ever expected it to be. If I could give it a 100-star review I would! All of the staff were second to none and Olivia the wedding consultant is the most helpful and warm person, nothing was too much for her and I can honestly say without her our day wouldn't have been as wonderful as it was. She is a complete professional and also treats your vision with absolute respect and enthusiasm. She was always delighted to see us and couldn't wait to bring our vision to life! The venue speaks for itself, it is pure magic from top to bottom and the rooms and standard of cleanliness are excellent.
The ballroom is just magical and the view from this hotel is stunning! We ate there several times in the lead up to the big day and each and every time the food and table service blew us away, after our wedding guests kept commenting on how great the food and service was which was so important for us and a major reason we chose this venue.
The value for money is also unbelievable, our guests raved that the room rate was one of the lowest they had seen for such a great venue which meant most of our guests stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the entire weekend with us. When we were settling the bill after our wedding day my husband and I got a wonderful shock to discover how very reasonable the final bill was. For the service, we had I honestly would've paid double, the value for money is incredible.
We genuinely believe this venue is the best place to get married, we honestly have nothing bad or even remotely negative to say about it.
My advice to any future bride and groom would be to go and see this place. Talk to Olivia. Have a meal there. Maybe even stay the night and walk the beach in the morning. I can guarantee you won't be anything but amazed. You might even just fall in love and never want to leave. We're looking forward to our next trip back already!

What an amazing hotel, it’s like home from home. My husband and I got married on 2 June and our reception was at the ocean sands, this hotel has no faults when it comes to weddings, they honestly could not do enough for us, Olivia was AMAZING! This lady deserves an award for what she does, even up to the morning before our wedding we had people drop out due to sickness and bereavements, and after emailing Olivia that morning, she relaxed the situation and assured us not to worry, We are both self employed so to try and meet Olivia during the day was a no go for us, but again this was not a problem, you name the time and Olivia was there to meet you. As for the hotel, the views are spectacular, I really wanted an abroad wedding but marrying a farmer it wasn’t going to happen but this hotel made me feel just like we were away, as we ate our dinner we were looking straight out on to the beach, all of the staff were absolutely amazing, we had one guest who was staying across the road from the hotel and her baby wasn’t settled so she left the meal with the baby, a member of staff followed with her meal to assure she got her meal, now we have been to many a wedding but I have never seen any hotel do that.
All I can say is if your thinking about this hotel for your wedding, book it cause you will not get the service or quality anywhere else Thanks to everyone in the hotel that made our day so special for us.

We got married in the ocean sands on November 26th 2016 and to say perfection would be an under statement.
We can't wait to return for our 1st anniversary for a stay over and yummy food.
Extremely happy customers.

We had our wedding at the ocean sands hotel on 29th October 2016. From the first day we met treasa to express our interest in the venue the service we received was fantastic. Treasa was very easy to deal with and answered all our emails very promptly, nothing was too much trouble and we felt relaxed that the team at the hotel had everything under control. On the day before the wedding, John was a great help enabling us to prepare things for the wedding reception. At the wedding reception, Stephen did a great job with all the organisation and helped us feel relaxed and at ease. It was great not having to worry about that aspect of the wedding day. Also, all the reception and waiting staff were very accommodating with all our requests. We received many compliments about the meal and the food at the drinks reception. We highly recommend the ocean sands as a wonderful wedding venue.
Hopefully we will be back for a visit in October!

I recently had a wedding at the Ocean Sands Hotel back in August of 2016 and it was truly a wonderful experience. I being an American who had never been to an Irish wedding before, was very impressed with the professionalism, the politeness and the efficiency that the staff displayed. Irish hospitality was something that I had always heard of back in the US and the staff lived up to this notion by being extremely hospitable to all the guests throughout the duration of the wedding and afterward. Even though my wife and I had to do most of the planning for the wedding overseas, (since we currently live in the US), the Ocean Sands made it easy to plan despite the time difference and the distance between Ireland and the US. Furthermore, the location of this hotel is perfect for a scenic wedding and the food was very delicious! My wive's family and friends from all over Ireland, as well as my family from the states and our friends from overseas (with some coming from as far as Taiwan) were all impressed with the accommodations, ambiance and experience that they had during their stay. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking for a wedding venue!

An amazing experience from start to finish. From the moment we walked into the hotel for the first time we were treated wonderfully and what was so nice to see was that on our big day that same treatment was extended to each and every one of our guests. The hotel, the function room and the food are all amazing, but what really makes the Ocean Sands Hotel special are the staff. Everyone is so professional, obliging and friendly, and they made sure our whole experience was stress free and fun filled. We received numerous compliments about the staff on the day, and Stephen in particular.
Thank you to everyone for making it the most amazing day.
