A big thanks to all at Great Southern Hotel for making our wedding day such a fantastic occasion. Catherine was our main contact with Emily and Deirdre adding their assistance along the way. All of our guests were warmly welcomed by and catered for throughout their stay thanks to the Chefs, receptionists and bar and all the team. Almost half of our guests travelled to Sligo and were delighted with the hospitality showed to them by the staff at the Great Southern. The food was of the highest standard and the friendly service at the bar was well received. The hotels pool proved the perfect option to ease the tired muscles from all the dancing the night before!

The Southern was a dream come true for our wedding! We wanted to find somewhere that "had it all". The coordinators were fabulous and made sure everything was just how I imagined it, down to the very last detail. The food was absolutely amazing as well!

We had our ceremony and reception at the Sligo Southern Hotel. It was beautiful! Deirdre and Emily were both very helpful and flexible. Our ceremony space was decorated lovely. The food was delicious; both the canapes at the cocktail reception and the dinner. Our guests expressed how much they liked the food. The reception space looked great. We used the hurricane lamps and crystal candle centerpieces provided by the Hotel and they were perfect. The candles added to the ambiance of the room. Our florist put loose petals around the hurricane lamps. Deirdre was prompt in answering e-mails and made herself available to us for meetings during the planning process. I would absolutely recommend the Sligo Southern Hotel!

The Sligo Southern offered everything that we wanted and more! Kevin & Catherine did such a great job helping us get everything done for our wedding day. I can be quite the control freak and they were amazing at responding to every question we had and even supplying photos of previous wedding setups so we could ensure our vision was going to become the reality at our wedding. They made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it, straight down to the folding style of the ... Read more

I recently got married at BEST WESTERN Sligo Southern Hotel. I worked closely with Emily who is one of the wedding coordinators. She was amazing every step of the way. I live in London and had to do most things long distance. She made sure everything was perfect and would send out friendly reminders if I was behind. The entire staff there were friendly and personable. The ceremony was outside in the beautiful gardens and they set it up perfectly. I couldn't believe how amazing the staff set up the reception. I was busy getting ready and just gave Emily all my decorations. The place was fabulous. I feel like I am rambling on but I only have good things ... Read more

I used the Sligo Southern Hotel as our ceremony and reception venue. It is simply beautiful and elegant, and really a gem hotel that does not require much effort in decorating because it is already stunning on its own! The staff were very professional, well dressed, and accessible for whatever our guests requested. I called and visited several times during the planning process and they were always available and eager to assist with whatever I needed. Our wedding turned out beautifully thanks to the Sligo Southern Hotel!

I attended my friend's wedding at the Sligo Southern and can honestly say it was one of the best weddings I have ever been to. Everything about the venue was perfect. We were able to get the train down from Dublin as it is literally right beside the train station, other friends travelled by car and were equally happy as lots of parking. From the moment you walk in the lobby the place is just gorgeous - really beautifully decorated - and the lobby had loads of space for us to sit and have tea and coffee and chat as everyone started arriving. We all arrived on the Friday - to make a weekend of it - and the hotel ... Read more
