I may be slightly biased (being the Groom) but I thought this was one of the best venues I have ever been to for a wedding (and I've been to a lot over the years).
One of the most important things for a wedding is that your guests feel relaxed and comfortable. The staff were so friendly and really helpful to all our guests over the weekend. We had guests mainly from Ireland (bride's family), Scotland (my family), Paris (where we live) and others from further afield and they all loved the hotel and the staff. The rooms were of a high standard and everyone was well looked after.
The hotel is situated in a beautiful part of Ireland, between 2 lochs. The views from some of the bedrooms are truly spectacular and if you're not lucky enough to get one of these rooms, the panoramic view from the restuarant is beautiful. We had a rainbow over the water on the first day and a snow capped mountain the second morning alongside our hearty Irish breakfast.
We had a pre-wedding meal booked for 94 people the night before, which was brilliant as they closed the restuarant especially for us; serving good food and the hotel even organised a live band afterwards. The bar area is very cosy with a real fire and serves a decent pint of Guinness, perfect for your guests to get to know each other.
Our wedding reception was really well organised and almost miltary precision with the serving of the food and drinks (which were kept flowing throughout the meal). A lovely meal and everyone was stuffed afterwards. Lovely set-up for the room and a good sized dance floor for our band and DJ (nobody sat down).
A special thanks goes to Denise, who is the event co-ordinator and will be sure to look after you on your big day, because you really should consider this hotel if your are thinking about marrying in Ireland.
Looking forward to going back for future anniversaries.
