We had our civil wedding ceremony and reception recently in The Glenside. From booking to checking out the next day, everything was well organised by Karen & Aoghan. No stress whatsoever. They could not have been more accommodating. The hotel is so intimate that we practically had the place to

ourselves, which is what we love about it. It's so personal. The food was amazing, and all our guests were still discussing the day. The gardens are lovely for photographs, and it was great to have everything in the same place. The bedrooms are so cosy also. Everyone was so relaxed. The staff are so friendly and did a great job looking after us all. Deserves a million stars. I would not change a single thing about the day and would highly recommend the Glenside for their special day to anyone thinking about the Glenside. You will not be disappointed. Would love to do it all again.

Thanks again to everyone at The Glenside. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

It was an amazing time at our wedding; the management and staff were fantastic. The food was glorious, and everything went smoothly, making me feel special. Would recommend the Glenside to anyone to have an event or special occasion there. Could not fault anything xxx

We cannot even begin to thank you enough for our perfect wedding day, The whole team was absolutely amazing.

We haven't stopped getting compliments on the food! Our guests were so impressed and so full! We were being pulled in all directions and didn't get as much of the canapes and evening

food as we would have liked, but what we did taste was incredible. We did however enjoy every mouthful of the main meal; Every course was delicious. Thanks so much for putting so much effort into our menu, it all went down a real treat.

Thank you for looking after every little detail; The whole place looked amazing, and was exactly what we wanted. Please thank all of the servers and team who helped with putting everything together, they were all so friendly and so efficient the whole night.

And another thank you to the team for gathering all of our stuff back up together for us to bring home the next day, that was so helpful and everything was looked after with so much care.

We couldn't be happier with how our day went and you're a huge part of that so thank you so much again.

All the best,
C & N

We can’t thank Karen, Aogán, and the staff enough for hosting our special day. It was beyond what we expected, the team went above and beyond to make our day special.

The attention to detail was amazing and the final touches they added. All the guests complemented the food and their dining

experience. It was such a relaxed and enjoyable day, the hotel itself is like a home from home, and it made our day a lovely intimate celebration.

Along the way, Karen and Aogán couldn't have been more helpful throughout our planning process.
