When it came to picking a venue for our wedding, the Gaelic College was an easy choice. The grounds at the college are absolutely beautiful with plenty of lush greenery and some of the best scenic views in Cape Breton. On top of its beauty, the staff at the College went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was customized to our desire. The courtesy and help that we received from the staff, especially Gail Montgomery, was top notch and extremely professional. The diverse layout of the College allowed us to have our ceremony, supper, and reception all on site which made everything that much easier plan. Many of our guests were even able to book one of the many newly-renovated, beautiful rooms for the night. Everything was perfect on our special day, right from the location of the ceremony to the last bite of dessert. The Gaelic College is simply an amazing, highly experienced, venue capable of making everything just right on such a special day. Craig & Melissa Ferrar (2014)

The Gaelic College was the absolute perfect place for our wedding! We simply could not have asked for more. Surrounded by stunning Cape Breton nature, the Gaelic College is a beautiful spot with rich historical and cultural significance. The layout of the college allowed us to have the wedding of our dreams, including time in nature and an old fashioned campfire. The interior of the buildings are very attractive and adapt well to various styles of decor. Many guests remarked on how happy they were to have had the opportunity to spend the evening in such a beautiful place. Guests who booked rooms at the college were pleasantly surprised with the quality and value of the newly-renovated rooms. Gail was perfect to assist in getting everything planned. She made sure every important detail was covered and customized to our vision. On the day of the wedding she was there to help ensure everything ran smoothly, and she did so in a professional yet sweet and caring way. We are honoured by the chance to connect with and support such a fantastic organization. The food was delicious, the staff are amazing and the memories are beautiful. Thank you so very much for your efforts in making our wedding the most beautiful day of our lives. Brenna Shannon (2014)

My husband and I chose the Gaelic College for our wedding venue after looking for places in Cape Breton that provided the option of having our ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dance all at the same location. The Gaelic College very quickly seemed like the right choice for us, particularly since many of our guests were able to stay in the reasonably priced accommodations onsite. We were extremely happy throughout the entire planning process with the Gaelic College, which can be attributed to the quality service and attentiveness provided by Gail Montgomery and the staff. Our wedding day truly could not have gone any better. The beautiful summer day allowed us to have the ceremony and cocktail hour outside as planned, but the college has backup facilities at the ready if needed. Everything went very smoothly and our guests were all very pleased and impressed with how much the Gaelic College had to offer. We selected a choice of salmon or vegetable lasagna for our meal, which were both delicious, served hot and with caring attention by the staff. The Gaelic College offers beautiful scenery and professional, reliable staff who were extremely accommodating to us on our special day. Choosing the Gaelic College was certainly the right choice and we can’t say enough good things about this Cape Breton treasure! Craig & Alana (2017)
