Liam and I got married in the Inishowen Gateway on 6th January 2023. We had a fabulous day from start to finish. Sinead, Jolene and all the staff went out of their way to make our day so special. Thank you so much! The staff were so friendly, food 5 star and the craic was mighty. The bridal suite was huge. We stayed 2 nights! Thanks again for a memorable fun day/weekend
