On New Years Eve we had our wedding reception at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa. A day we will never forget. The hotel is simply stunning in every way. We fell in love while planning our big day. The staff are exceptional. Lauren and her team were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble on the day and on the run up. The day went like clockwork thanks to every member of staff, right from the bar to those serving our delicious meal and those behind the scenes. The setting is just amazing. Our guests were blown away by the views and the sheer elegance of the hotel. The Christmas decorations were glistening and the atmosphere was so warm ... Read more

From start to finish, the staff of the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa were fabulous. They helped make our wedding day perfect & we were so pleased with the care & attention we received. Special thanks to our co-ordinator Lauren who was a pleasure to work with & was a calming presence during what is otherwise quite an overwhelming experience for bride & groom. We had the Chandelier Room which was has been recently renovated and now has even more wow-factor. The room was dressed beautifully, made even more lovely by the Christmas decorations in December. The food was faultless, piping hot on service & tasted delicious. Wine selections were lovely too & we especially loved Lauren's suggestion of prosecco ... Read more

We can't thank all the staff at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa for all there help leading up to and on the day of our wedding. From a little girl, I always dreamed of getting married by the sea, and where else perfect to host a wedding than at the Slieve Donard Resort. I must mention a huge thank you to Lauren and her team on the day of our wedding. From the second I met Lauren to the minute I said my goodbye she was there when we needed her and nothing was too much trouble. Coming from an Events background I truly appreciate her attention to detail running up to and on the day. A big thank ... Read more

We can't thank all of the staff at Slieve Donard enough for making our day so stress free and special. We had our wedding reception at Slieve Donard over the Christmas period and the stunning festive decorations in the hotel created a really magical atmosphere. We got engaged almost exactly a year before this while staying at the Slieve Donard, on the beach outside the hotel and we knew then that it would be the perfect venue for our big day! From day one when we arranged to meet and hear more about the venue we felt we were in safe hands and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. Our wedding coordinator was amazing throughout, from planning the food, ... Read more

The Slieve Donard hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding. Despite having an awful day with weather, the venue was just right. There was so much space even though we couldn't go outside due to rain and the hotel was so beautifully decorated for Christmas it just made for the best of photographs. The staff were so helpful even from the first meeting to discuss arrangements Mohammad just couldn't do enough for us. All our guests commented how warm and tasteful the food was and thoroughly enjoyed the day. We didn't even look at other hotels because we knew this was the venue we wanted and then after meeting Mohammad we knew there was no point in looking elsewhere. ... Read more

We have our wedding at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa on September 2014. It was on of the best day of our lives. Staff were excellent and nothing was a trouble for them. Reservation team, in particular Laura Hanna, was so attentive and met us a few times to find out our needs which were not only met but exceed. I highly recommend the hotel for any event especially wedding, you are definitely in the right place if you want to be looked after. We were extremely lucky, weather was superb and we had brilliant time with our family and friends. Hakan and Renata Sakalli

An absolutely stunning venue for our very special day, the setting speaks for itself!! Gorgeous photo opportunities on the grounds of the hotel. A very big thank you to all the staff at the slieve Donard hotel who worked extremely hard to ensure our day was just perfect! In particular, Miss Laura Hanna who was with us every step of the way; no task too big! Even the sheer amount of table decorations I insisted on! A pleasure to work with....so much so that we miss her now the wedding is over!! She and Chris ensured our day ran like clockwork, even sorting our problems with external entertainment providers without us even knowing. Our dinner was served on time! And ... Read more

We will always have the most amazing memories of the start of 2015 when we welcomed our family and friends to celebrate in the beginning of our married life together. Steve and I fell in love with the amazing backdrop of the Slieve Donard hotel nestled amidst the Mourne Mountains. From celebrating New Years Eve with our wedding party in the Percy French public house to saying our vows with our celebrant in the grand Chandelier room. We both felt that we were the only people in the room that day and the service, attention to detail and the decor provided by the hotel was simply outstanding. We had been wowed by the Winter Wonderland themed Christmas decorations and these ... Read more

I had my wedding @ the Slieve Donard on the 3rd of October 2015, it was absolutely magnificent. The room was set up to the highest standard and the food was absolutely exceptional, I would also like to make a special mention to Mohamed and his team who where absolutely first class, my wife and I are absolutely delighted with how the day went it was so smooth and went like clock work. I would gladly recommend the Slieve Donard as a wedding venue absolutely first class from start to finish.

The Slieve Donard Hotel hosted our wedding reception on 13 June 2009 in the Chandelier Room. The day was fantastic and they could not do enough for us. From intial planning stages to the overnight stay everything was catered for and delivered with professional expertise and most importantly with a smile. Our guests commented on the excellent service and ideed the food, which was amazing. The tasting beforehand was a great idea. Speical mention must go out to Mohammed who provided excellent service and made sure that our every need was met. He was a joy to work with and certainly a good laugh! We would definitely recommend the hotel to anybody considering hosting their wedding and/or reception there in ... Read more

by Ria Adair on Tue, 3rd November, 2015
I cannot thank the slieve donard enough for all they done for myself and my new husband on the run up to out big day. We were organising our wedding for little under 2 years and regardless to how big or small the query all hotel staff were happy to offer as much assistance as possible. At some stage during the planning process I had to deal with a member of most departments whether it was the restaurant about meal choices, bar staff about wine selections or reception (who were bombarded with my phone calls for 2 years) regarding payments or accommodation. Although all staff were fantastic I cannot stress enough how amazing Colleen Grant was/is. Before it was decided ... Read more

Myself and my husband got married in the Chandelier Suite on 13th September 2014. Everything was absolutely perfect from the venue to the food and the staff. Laura and Nora were a great help when it came to organising the finer details. We all had a fantastic day and cannot thank the Slieve Donard enough!

What can I say about our wedding in the Slieve?? From the day we booked our wedding in the Slieve Donard we got the best treatment possible. Everyone in the hotel made sure our day was the best day ever! The atmosphere was lovely, the scenery for pictures: perfect and the food was delicious! Mohammad who looked after us was amazing nothing was too much to ask. From making sure the mojitos were on hand for me :-) to setting up the sweet table I could not thank him enough for his help! I would definitely recommend this hotel for a wedding. Our day was simply unforgettable!

My husband and I got engaged in Slieve Donard on the 15th November 2014. Having gotten engaged there, it was the obvious place for our wedding reception. I love the place, from the surroundings, the building to the staff. We were lucky to then get a date this year that suited, so my parents went ahead and booked the 6th of August. Planning my wedding day and the reception was such fun and all the wedding coordinators who dealt with us were so helpful and accommodating of our ideas for our special day. The day itself went so smoothly, we had nothing to do, our room was set up for us exactly as I had asked. The food was amazing. ... Read more

Was really impressed with the Slieve Donard in particular the staff on the day. They worked really hard and made all our guests & family feel at ease. Duty Manager John, on the day was also excellent in helping us deal with unforeseen circumstances. All our guests reflected on the stunning location along with the food and presentation of the courses & waiting staff. Hotel interior was very impressive also. All in all would highly recommend the Slieve Donard.

We visited the Slieve Donard hotel in March 2015 and got engaged at that time, we felt the hotel would be an ideal location for our wedding in August 2015. The hotel allocated a wedding co-ordinator to us which was fantastic as we were not from the area so they could help recommend florists, photographers etc all of which were superb. We had great service from the hotel and all the staff were very helpful, the range of rooms are ideal for any size of event. The food was excellent and we were also lucky enough to have great weather which meant we had wedding photographs in the grounds and on the beach all with the mountains and sea as ... Read more

We got married 27th August 2015 in the chandelier suite. The location is stunning. The staff are extremely helpful, polite and enthusiastic. Lauren was superb at coordinating our day and Mohammad was so pleasant to deal with. Our guests said it was the best location and hotel they'd ever been to and everyone had an amazing time. We were treated like royalty and left breathless at how beautiful everything was. I can't fault anything and would love to do it all over again. We loved the rooms and our bridal suite. Most of our guests were Scottish & English and they really commented on how friendly everyone in the hotel is, which makes this a unique place to get married. ... Read more

I got married in the Slieve Donard in April and I could not speak highly enough of the place. It was incredible from start to finish. From the first day I went to look at the venue until we checked out after the wedding the service we received was incredible. Getting married is a very stressful time for any bride but I have to say that the hotel really helped me and were amazing at giving me tips and guidance that made our day that extra bit more special. I know that the hotel do weddings all the time but they really made us feel like ours was the only one that mattered to them, For anyone who has been ... Read more

My husband and I would like to thank the staff of the Slieve Dobard Resort & Spa for making our wedding day in October so special.

We look forward to visiting the hotel again soon! Claire & Jamie Mulgrew

The Slieve Donard is such a beautiful setting for a wedding reception, our wedding experience there was an absolute joy. From the start we were very impressed with the various options available at Slieve Donard. Una was extremely pleasant and interested in us and totally efficient in all her dealings with us. She was very approachable and reasonable to speak to about all issues such as rooms, number of guests, the meal etc and advised us very wisely throughout. All of our meetings with Una prior to the day were friendly, relaxed and a very positive experience for us. She always replied quickly to my e-mails and answered any questions to reassure us. No request was too much trouble and ... Read more

If you are thinking of booking your wedding reception at the Slieve Donard - don't hesitate- it's amazing. My new husband and I had a fabulous day. The venue is outstanding, the staff were incredible all day long. We were made to feel like a million dollars. All our guests had a ball and everyone said the food was wonderful and piping hot!!! I have to especially thank Chris Stevenson our master of ceremonies- he was fab and even helped my very nervous Dad write his speech. Also want to say a wee thank you to Una Finnegan- Roberts, she was so kind and made me feel really special when I called in at the hotel unannounced before wedding. My ... Read more

John and I had our wedding reception in The Ballroom in Slieve Donard on 27th Sept 2014. It was literally the most perfect day of our lives. The weather was lovely which meant we got the most stunning pictures taken in the grounds with the sea and Mourne mountains a beautiful backdrop. Our Master of Ceremonies John Breslin was very helpful in the run up to the wedding and made all the planning and extra room decoration we had planned so easy. On the day John could not have been better. He was there exactly when we needed him and invisible the rest of the time, nothing was too much trouble.I could not praise the staff highly enough the waiting ... Read more

As a bride recently married in the Slieve Donard resort and spa I would highly recommend this venue for any bride and groom. The staff were so attentive right from before we even booked the venue all the way through to the day after the wedding. They met our every need and gave us a day we will forever treasure! The food was exceptional and the rooms were stunning.
by Samuel Guist on Tue, 4th November, 2014
The Slieve Donard is a stunning location to have your wedding reception with the unique and stunning location, iconic building with fantastic modern interior but what makes this hotel really stand out is the staff, they were fantastic! We got married in May 2014 and chose the Slieve Donard hotel after looking at many venues, but the location, views and honeymoon suits where probably factors in choosing the venue but it is the service that we will remember it for. We had a dedicated wedding organiser (Chris Stevenson) at the hotel and he really was amazing, nothing was a problem no matter how big (moving 3 large statutes!) or how small. He made the whole day run without a single ... Read more

My husband and I had a fantastic experience at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa. The staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. Special mention has to go to Mohammad, who we felt went that extra mile to facilitate our guests and us. Everything went very smoothly, and we very much felt that we were being looked after by experts in the organisation of weddings! We have had many comments from our guests about how good the experience was and how highly they rated the Slieve Donard. I would definitely recommend the Slieve Donard to other people who are considering a venue for their wedding reception. I have always found it to be a warm and welcoming place, and I will ...

From start to finish our wedding journey could not have been better. I knew when it came to looking for a venue if it was going to be a hotel that the Slieve Donard would be the one for us. When we went to view it for the first time we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome! We were made to feel like ours was the only upcoming wedding and nothing was a big hassle. I simply fell in love. The journey that followed was a complete pleasure. Any questions or queries were answered at the end of a telephone/email and this really put me at ease. The day itself was simply perfect, if anything went wrong I ... Read more

We had an amazing day at the slieve donard and our guests had an amazing day as well which I'm sure was all down to the slieve donard and the staff who made the day happen. The food was amazing and served on time with any of the guests who had special dietary requirements getting what we had requested:). The food was piping hot which was great :). We really enjoyed our meal and the hospitality from the slieve donard which had every thing set out and organised :). We would just like to thank everyone involved :). The chanellier room is beautiful would just love to do it all again :).

Our wedding party was truly fabulous at the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa. I only wish that we had stayed another night. The staff were exceptionally kind, helpful and made us feel very special. Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the surroundings and the whole Slieve Donard experience too. We could not have had a more memorable day. The attention to detail, from the personalised gift in our room to the menu and individual service was top quality. We would highly recommend the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa to all perspective brides and grooms. The experience for us was outstanding.

We had our wedding at the Slieve Donard in April 2014. The venue was amazing, staff were helpful, reassuring, well organised, friendly, approachable and most importantly calm! The day of the wedding went smoothly without any glitches and everyone had a great day. The food was beautiful and wonderfully presented. I would highly recommend the Slieve Donard as a wedding or reception venue (or both!!)

We had an amazing wedding day at the Slieve Donard. Everything on the day was fantastic, the staff, the food, the setting it was all perfect, nothing was too much bother! They helped me plan out what I needed for the day , and let us make updates right up to the day before.We had also booked rooms in the hotel for family and friends which they loved. The receptionist was able to upgrade most rooms which was a amazing and they were all beautiful, it was an added bonus for our guests and one which was a lovely surprise. The overall setting of the Slieve is hard to beat, right beside the sea and mountain back drop which was ... Read more

We got married in the Slieve Donard on New Years Eve 2013. I cannot put into words just how amazing our experience was at the hotel. Having arranged our entire wedding from Dubai and Cyprus (we both work abroad) Laura Hanna and her team were more than accommodating and patient when dealing with our requests. We even managed to do most of our meetings via email or telephone! The venue itself is just magical. Christmas is a particularly magical time of the year anyway but the venue dazzled with lights and trees and the warm open fire in reception was just stunning. We were so lucky to have our photographs taken outside, with the magnificent view of the mountains and ... Read more

The Slieve Donard Hotel did a fantastic job with our wedding and we enjoyed every single second, the professionalism of the staff, the level of service provided was outstanding. I would highly recommend the Slieve Donard to anyone getting married, they take the stress out of the big day and help in any way that they can especially Laura from the Events Team who was an absolute star and I cannot thank enough. The Slieve Donard will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will be back every year for our anniversary.
by Elizabeth Carson on Thu, 12th December, 2013
Highly recommend the Slieve Donard. All the staff were very helpful from the moment we enquired about dates. The whole organisation ran very smoothly and Mohammed who was looking after us on the day made sure that every last detail was sorted. The food was excellent, tasty and plenty to eat for the hungry farmers we had as guests! We were definitely treated well including our suite for our first night as Mr and Mrs! Couldn't have faulted a thing and would recommend anyone thinking of getting married to consider the Slieve as a wonderful venue with spectacular views to enjoy.
by Christopher and Cara Hagan on Mon, 2nd December, 2013
We got married in May 2013 and we definitely picked the perfect wedding reception venue! From the moment we went to look around the hotel prior to booking it, we were looked after by all the staff! Mohammed was our wedding coordinator and he made sure we had everything we wanted for our day - the day ran perfectly with his guidance! We can honestly say that nothing went wrong on our day :-) We, and all our guests thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality, location and food in the Slieve Donard, and have no hesitation in recommending it to others! We have already been back to celebrate a birthday! Perfect!

We had a fantastic time at the Slieve Donard for our wedding and couldnt recommend it enough. The hotel and organisational staff, both leading up to and during the day, were extremely helpfull and professional. Everything about the day was perfect, the way they welcomed guests, pre drinks, organising guests into the function room and the whole evening ran without a glitch. Everyone commented on how beautiful and efficient the meal was and how well the night ran. This was all down to the experience of the staff.

Our experience with the Slieve Donard was beyond spectacular. Coming from the United States, we thought we would have a difficult time planning a wedding abroad. However, Laura, Chris, and their staff were phenomenal. From answering every question we had before coming to Newcastle to the picture perfect reception, we could not have asked for a better experience. Every part of the reception, from the drinks reception, to dinner, to the dancing, to the evening buffet, went off without a hitch. We felt like a prince and princess throughout the evening, from receiving champagne with strawberries upon our arrival to having the plates set down for each part of the meal simultaneously. Moreover, coming from the US, we were amazed ... Read more
