Teenage sweethearts Sharon O’Connor and John Devine first met at a disco over 16 years ago and their relationship has gone from strength to strength since. Sharon, who is the Wedding Sales Manager in the Brehon Hotel, said ‘yes’ on New Years’ Eve 2016 when John popped the question, a moment which the couple say they will cherish forever. Sharon and John opted for a ceremony in St John’s Church, Ballybunion. Being the Wedding Sales Manager at The Brehon, Sharon knew that the venue which she has worked with so many other couples through would also be perfect for her wedding reception.

Sharon describes the day as “magical, emotional and heartfelt from beginning to end.” The couple were blessed with the elements as their wedding took place during the July heatwave, and the spectacular weather only added to the extraordinary service provided by her colleagues at The Brehon. “Our guests enjoyed an idyllic arrival reception on the hotel’s lawn overlooking Killarney National Park, before moving to the banqueting suite where festivities continued with a delicious five course meal,” Sharon reveals.
Sharon praises her colleagues at The Brehon’s dedication to making her day perfect, especially as they lined the red carpet to welcome the newly married couple to the hotel. She also recalls the family members and loved one who helped and supported the couple throughout the whole preparation process as a particularly special addition to the day. The couple also made a point of remembering John’s late mother Madeleine who was sadly missed throughout their day.
How was your experience with The Brehon Hotel?
"As The Brehon’s Wedding Sales Manager, I speak to couples everyday about why The Brehon is a wonderful wedding venue. I know this from my own personal experience now, and because I hear first-hand from very happy couples that the food is delicious, the service impeccable and the atmosphere is simply second to none. I couldn’t have asked for more for my wedding day. The Brehon’s staff and service really are remarkable.”
