We got married here in the Dolmen hotel on the 25.01.2013 and we really could not have have a more fitting or fantastic venue for it. From the day we booked our wedding and all throughout the process we have to say that all the members of staff we dealt with were an absolute pleasure. Whilst you can never say that planning a wedding is not stressful, all the staff and in particular the wedding co-ordinator ( Clare Kavanagh) did their utmost to help us and guide us to ensure that we got the most out of the day with what we believe to be the minimal amount of stress. Every request we made was catered for with the utmost professionalism. Top tip their Wedding Planning site Moposa is a fantastic tool to help keep you on track in preparation for your big day. We had people from abroad attend our wedding ( most of whom were staying for three nights and had children as well) and they were all extremely satisfied with the price, the quality and variety of the food, the appearance and decor of the hotel, the friendliness and efficiency of all the staff they dealt with throughout their stay. All of the quests that attended on the day of the wedding were singing the praises of all and every aspect of the wedding. As it was a civil ceremony, our wedding was also held in the hotel and the fluidity of the transition between the ceremony, the photographs, the meal and the disco was totally seamless.
We had awful weather on the day which meant that our original plans to get the Photos taken outside the hotel were dashed, again this wasn't seen by the staff as even a blip and they ensured that we were able to get every picture we wanted around the entrance and stairwell area.
We genuinely feel that we got every aspect of our day, exactly as we wanted and would find it hard to believe that we could have got any better anywhere else, and all this for a price that other couples we know, who have recently had, or are currently planning their own weddings could not believe.
Fantastic Quality, Standards, Service, Food and Value from a team that were totally beyond reproach in all that they did, we really were made to feel like the most important people in the world on our day.
We would thoroughly recommend anyone planning a wedding around the Carlow area to give this venue some very serious consideration and are sure you will be very impressed. Some reviews (largely from businessmen) state that the hotel is 'dated' and maybe it could be viewed that way, If you are looking for somewhere cold, clinical and ultra modern then this is not the place for you.... If however you want to be somewhere warm and welcoming, with traditional style and character, family friendly with a homely welcome then this will more than meet your expectations.
Be it a wedding, birthday, communion or any other event including a relaxing weekend away then the proximity to Carlow town (approx 1 mile) surely makes it an ideal location.
