“Encore was the perfect venue for us. It is classy, modern and all our guests couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the space looked, and how amazing the food was! We loved that we could have the bridal table in amongst all our guests. It was a bit of a cooler summer, day but even so, we could admire the beautiful beach from inside, and it meant that everyone was up on the dance floor having the best time!
We couldn’t have asked for anything more, the service from the staff in the lead up to the event and on the day! Thank you so much Kate, and all the team!”

“We had the pleasure of hosting a staff end of year party at Encore. The venue is beautiful, but the outstanding point of difference is the staff. They introduced themselves, checked in on decisions and timings as the night evolved and were extremely professional. Add to that a great selection of drinks and more than enough food and we will be back next year.”

“Encore was generously able to accommodate our school’s Valedictory Celebration when our original venue was unable to do so last minute. The staff were incredibly helpful and supportive to us in the lead up to the event as well as on the evening. The location is stunning both indoors and out, with views looking out over the ocean and a patio that’s perfect for gorgeous sunset photos. We’re so grateful for Encore accommodating us as well as they did and I’d very much recommend this venue for functions in the future.”

The feedback we received from our guests regarding the service, food and breathtaking sea-views, was proof that we made the right choice holding our special day here!

“Everything you want and need in a wedding venue, amazing staff, amazing venue and amazing food! We had our wedding at Encore and couldn’t speak more highly of it. We have received so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful the venue was and the food especially, I was too busy mingling to eat any food which I am so disappointed as it was amazing at the tasting! Our event coordinator Niamh was an absolute joy to deal with and responded to all my questions and requests promptly. The venue itself is a beautiful setting with a beachfront terrace to top it off. Definitely recommend!”
– Caitlin & Emanuel, 28th Jan 2023

“We celebrated our wedding ceremony and reception at Encore and were just blown away with how amazing it was! The location, the view and the overall space and layout (and flexibility) was just amazing and we definitely recommend Encore for a wedding venue. We had to postpone our wedding due to Covid and it was handled so well by the team, and even with a change in event coordinator the handover was easy and everything was smooth. Niamh, our event coordinator was superb and responsive and really thought of everything to help make our day so special. It really took some of the stress out of planning to have her! Our day was really exactly how we wanted it! I highly recommend a ceremony on the rooftop if the weather allows. Thanks again to Niamh and everyone at Encore for making our special day one to remember.”

“We had our Wedding Ceremony and Reception at Encore and we had the most incredible time on our big day! The location is brilliant, the sunsets/views are amazing, and the inside/outside area of the venue is beautiful. From the point of putting in an enquiry, the experience with Encore was so easy and enjoyable – we always received quick responses, our event coordinator helped us through every step of the way– explaining everything clearly and coordinating with our suppliers on our behalf. On the day, the staff (led by Ed) were kind, attentive and patient – never an empty glass! Food was delicious and dietaries all catered for. We had a number of performances to pay respect to our different cultures and the venue size and space easily catered for this. We also had a gelati cart that was able to fit into the space too. All our guests commended on how wonderful the entire day was and we can’t thank the team enough for the most special day! We are so very grateful. We highly recommend Encore to anyone looking for a wedding venue or a venue to host a big event.”

Eddie and Jess on the day of the wedding were a great help, always looked out for us! Our guests had an amazing time and everyone has told us how great the food and the service was, we also had a few dietary requirements which were well looked after! You guys are AMAZING!!! Thank you! Thank you! Let’s do it all again!!”

Niamh was incredible during our planning process, communication was quick and efficient which is everything you could ask for when planning a wedding. Thank you to everyone who helped on the night. Our family and friends raved on about the food and the service, some said it was the best wedding food they have ever eaten. I would highly recommend Encore to anyone looking for a wedding venue.”
– Rebecca & Jack, 28th Oct 2022

“We experienced 2 cancellations due to lockdowns, then our event coordinator left for a new job, and through all these inconveniences our dealing with the team at Encore couldn’t have been any clearer and smoother. Leticia took over the roll of coordinator for our 3rd wedding date and did an exceptional job. She was very easy to talk to and made the planning process so easy. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was and how amazing the food was! Thanks to all the team at Encore for creating our most memorable wedding day!”

Our coordinator, Jody was legendary. So professional and always providing the best advice to get the most out of our event. We have had so much great feedback from attendees who thought the venue was perfect, the food – canapes – were sensational and the welcome cocktails were perfection. Staff were on point the entire night and kept everything flowing brilliantly. Can’t recommend enough.”

“Centrepoint have held events at Encore for many years and we keep going back because the service standard is unmatched. During the COVID period, the landscape of events has drastically changed and to have a venue that works with their client in ensuring the best outcome is like gold. Encore have been there every step of the way, from bookings to re-scheduling, to facilitating the events with COVID-safe plans. It’s great to know you have someone on your side working with you to deliver your event even in the most uncertain times.”
