10 things to know about getting married in Limerick.
1: Limerick is just 15 minutes drive from Shannon Airport. The home of the Irish Coffee. What a great start or finish to your holiday. Hire a car and off you go, passing by the beautiful Bunratty Castle on your way to the historical Treaty City, where you will definitely experience Irish Hospitality at its best.
2: Most hotels and venues are now offering indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies (weather permitting) of course. Whether you want a civil, humanist or religious ceremony you can have it all in Limerick.
3: From beginning to end Limerick and surrounding areas has so much to offer, from castles to 4 and 5 star hotels and beautiful Marquee venues. From amazing spas to adventure centres.
4: When you get married in Limerick we go out of our way to make everything right. Whether you are here to organise things personally or you organise it via email, phone etc. The service is the same. You are our VIPs and we want you to have the best experience ever.
5: Religious ceremonies in Ireland now need to be pre booked well in advance due to a shortage of priests. It's true to say now that many priests are having to perform more that one ceremony per day, unlike the old days when the priest would be an honorary guest at the reception, now they may not have the time.
6: Getting married in Limerick is a great choice. We have everything you might need right here. The beautiful coastline of Clare, Galway and Sligo just a drive away. Imagine a drive to the cliffs of Moher is just an hour’s drive from Limerick. You can even pop down and kiss the Blarney stone with just a short drive.
7: Ring O Roses florist is based in Limerick city centre and we regularly help our incoming couples to find the best in photographers, videographers, cake bakers, musical groups, DJs and even venues, so when you book with us you enlist our help in any way we can. Our favourites are listed on our section “people we like to do business with” .
8: Unlike getting married in a lot of country’s Irish weddings do tend to go on quite late, so most family members would be advised to book rooms in the chosen hotel or close to the venue. Most hotels will offer a "late bite" offer in addition to the normal reception meal. For those who like to nibble after a few glasses of their chosen tipple. And of course making shapes on the dance floor. So be prepared.
9: Hairdresssers, beauticians, barbers, etc. are always available to come to you at your hotel. There is no need to worry about finding a salon close by. They are at your fingertips.
10: Ring o Roses really is Limericks no 1 florist, supplying everything you could possibly need to decorate your wedding. If we don’t have it, we have enough contacts to organise it for you.
