Wedding in Ballinrobe

Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in sorting out the marquee for us for our wedding last July in Ballinrobe. We weren't sure at all what we were doing at first, and had a lot of trouble getting our head around the different packages and prices on offer across the country.

You made everything very simple and easy to understand, and helped us to book a marquee that suited our plans and budget. We couldn't have been happier with how the marquee turned out, and how well it served us. It was perfect for all weather, and sheltered us in the rain as well as opening out easily for the sunshine.

You were also a great help with the periphals, and it was fantastic to be able to arrange the furniture and everything through yourself, as well as have you coordinate with the DJ, Barman and caterer for their needs and requests as regards the layout.

You were a great help in putting it all together and we really appreciated it.

Warm Regards,

Alan & Mo├»ra Fowley-Doyle

I was planning a big party for my 40th birthday, 150 guests, marquee the whole nine yards.
I found carnival marquees after a quick google search, I had no recommendation knew nothing of the company and was blindly relying on Derek's assertion that he would create a fantastic setting for my 40th birthday.  I can honestly say it was the party of my dreams, Derek and his team created exactly what I had pictured in my head for the last two years.  They were professional, organised and most importantly delivered exactly what they promised.  I would not hesitate to recommend them for any occasion. Thank you so much again guys!

Marquee Hire Testimonial

I have recently used Carnival Marquees for 2 parties, one in Summer and the second one for a 21st. in November. I would highly recommend them. They were able to adapt marquees to suit two completely different situations. They were extremely obliging and reliable. Both marquees and lay-out looked very well, both inside and outside and we were very happy with both events.

"We were arranging our wedding in Connemara from Switzerland so that in itself was difficult. But Carnival Marquees were always very helpful and professional and made good suggestions along the way in terms of size, furniture etc…. The marquee looked beautiful on the day and everything went very well. Everyone loved the little lights on the black ceiling over the dancefloor!
I would have no hesitation in recommending the guys for any events."
