Garyvoe’s Golden Couple


Model Mairead O’Farrell was on hand this week to pose as a 1960s Bride to announce the Garryvoe Hotel’s “Search for our Golden Couple” – the East Cork seaside hotel celebrates its own 50th Anniversary in 2013 and wants to find a golden couple to join in the party. And so the hunt is on for any couple who got married in the 1960’s.


Stephen Belton, Managing Director, The Garryvoe Hotel said, “We’re 50 years in business in 2013 and to celebrate this we are searching for couples who got married in the1960s – especially those who got married in the The Garryvoe Hotel. And we’d love to find the first couple to marry here.


“ We’re asking anyone who did get married in the Sixties to get in touch.  And the winners will get a superb party for 50 people as part of our celebrations. The competition is open to all couples but if we find couples who held their wedding reception in the Garryvoe Hotel in the 1960s – they’ll win a secret extra prize.

All you have to do is log onto their facebook page and enter into our fantastic ‘Golden Couple’ competition – or get your children or even grandchildren to do it for you.  Simply write a story on the theme ‘50 Years of Smiling’ and upload an image or video which represents this theme to go with it.

The Garryvoe Hotel first opened in 1963 and in that time they have built up a reputation for excellence in weddings.
