A Fab Summer Wedding at the Connemara Coast Hotel, Furbo, Galway

Orlaith and Philip came all the way from Lucan in Dublin to the stunning Connemara Coast Hotel to tie the knot in July. Their  immediate families and other members hailed from Meath and  Longford.

Their connection with connemara: They spent many a happy summer holidaying in the Gaeltacht as a child and Orlaith and Philip love going away to Galway as a couple so they felt it appropriate to share our love for Galway with our nearest and dearest there. They have now even more reason to return to Galway and the fabulous Connemara Coast Hotel.

Well what a day they had weather wise. They were blessed with SUN. Galway gets a helluva lota rain with these girls didnt need their wellies once. The sun shone the whole day. The backdrop of this hotel is rocks and the ocean, It literally sits on the edge of the water. Iv stayed here recently myself and  The view is incredible from the dining room, the pool etc, it feels like you are on an island which you almost are. Im not surprised orlaith chose this for her big day.
