We had our wedding reception party in the Glenside Hotel late September and I can't recommend the hotel enough. It's a perfect wedding venue. The reception room is beautiful with its fairy light backdrop, the gorgeous lanterns on the way in, the room just had a very warm welcoming feeling. The venue

can accommodate any kind of party. There were so many little touches added that really made a difference. The food went down a treat too. The main thing though was Karen and her staff, they could not have done anymore for us on the run up and on the night and I truly had a perfect wedding do :)

We had our wedding at the Glenside Hotel on the 21st July 2023.

Myself and my husband can't thank Karen and Aogan enough for all the planning they did to help make our day as special as it was. It was like a dream from start to finish. Karen and Aogan were very professional with the wedding

arrangements and ensuring that the day was family-oriented.
The suppliers were great and the staff members on hand were brilliant. The personal touches to our room were 100%. The printed menu with our wedding photo on the wedding table was a great surprise and really wonderful. The menu we chose had a lot to offer, and every single person loved the good hearty food.

Also we can't thank the rest of the staff members for all their hard work, they were unbelievable. They just couldn't have done enough to make our day so special. They were so welcoming, helpful and friendly.

We stayed at the hotel, and some of our guests did too, and we all really loved it. The rooms and hotel have been done up and it is just fabulous. It looked really lovely on our very special day, and the garden and the flowers were amazing for the photos. It was the most happy and relaxed day for us, our family, friends and guests.

We had the most amazing, perfect day and we are so glad that we choose The Glenside hotel as our wedding venue.

Anyone thinking of having a wedding or getting married would be mad not to pick this hotel. Highly recommended. We are lucky to have venue like this on our doorstep.

Karen, Aogan and all the wonderful staff - thanks again for the beautiful memories, we will be definitely back again.

Love Kevin & Katarina

My wife and I celebrated our wedding day on 26th August at the Glenside Hotel. From our initial viewing all the way through to our wedding day, the experience was fantastic. We opted for the all-inclusive package and this took a lot of stress away from the planning. Karen & Aogán were absolute

My husband and myself got married at The Glenside Hotel in July 2023, we decided to go for their all-inclusive wedding package and I can’t recommend it enough. Karen and Aogán were absolutely fantastic and so helpful with any queries we had.

The Glenside is such a beautiful place it’s so

elegant and private. Our day was amazing from start to finish. The team at The Glenside is truly amazing. They go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. Our suppliers that came with the package were magnificent: our cake and flowers were beautiful and our photographer was so amazing and such a gentleman. My one fear was that with such an amazing package for an amazing price that the suppliers wouldn’t be top notch but how wrong I was. They are all like one big massive family and are so amazing to have to deal with.

We really can’t thank The Glenside enough. They are definitely an amazing venue for a wedding as we wouldn’t have changed a thing.

My husband, Barry and myself got married in The Glenside Hotel on Friday the 04/08/2023. The Glenside was the only venue we visited, we chose it after having a meal to celebrate Barry's parents 50th wedding anniversary. The food was so nice and staff so warm, friendly and professional and there was

a lovely atmosphere. Barry's mam suggested we consider it as a wedding venue as there was 17 rooms also which was also an advantage.

A couple of weeks later we met Karen and after that meeting we never looked back, we were so excited to get married in the Glenside and we chose the package that included the florist, photographer, cake, band and DJ.

Karen and Aogan were extremely supportive throughout the journey to our wedding day. No request was too small or too big. They were always very attentive and any questions or queries were always answered so promptly. Everything was done in such a professional manner but with also warmth and care.
We had a tasting a month before the wedding, we knew that day the guests would be in good hands. I only asked my dad today what he chose and he told me the beef while commenting that nobody could have complained about the food and that his friends have been back for dinner since already. Being a vegetarian myself and having vegetarian friends, the choices are incredible and the the kids are so well catered for too. At the tasting ,our menus were personalized, a lovely surprise and it was a special memory for us.

We had the most incredible day, Karen ,Aogan and the beautiful Christine were there to support from start to finish. The décor was a fairy-tale, so much attention to detail, absolutely breath-taking, personalized menus again, really special. The band, DJ had guests not leave the floor. The florist, cake and photographer did an amazing job with care and warmth also.
The bridal suite and rooms were beautiful. All our guests have commented about how lovely the day was, we could not recommend the Glenside, their staff and suppliers enough.
