Firstly can I start off by saying Julie was amazing to us on the day and in the weeks leading up to the wedding. She was very helpful at providing information and advice. Nothing we asked of her was too much and she is a credit to the Hotel. Katie was phenomenal in the lead up to the wedding

Secondly, the other staff of the hotel were amazing from start to finish. The wait staff in the ballroom were brilliant and the service was expertly managed. The feedback we have received about the food has been excellent. Even the staff in the restaurant for breakfast were lovely, the person who greeted me Tuesday morning even told the person seating me that I was the bride from Sunday so I continued to feel very special.

The food, the service and the atmosphere of the hotel is what makes the Great Southern so special and head and shoulders above the competition.

Words cannot thank the staff at The Great Southern Hotel enough for their generosity and hospitality during our wedding in February 2022. Throughout the 18 months of planning there was never an issue and the wedding planners went above and beyond their duty to ensure that everything was as we wished

on the day. From the menu tasting, to the many visits to confirm details, everything was so enjoyable in the lead up to the day. And this experience only surpassed itself on the wedding day itself! All of our guests commented on the level of service, the friendly staff, the beautiful food and surroundings. As a couple on the day we felt completely looked after which allowed us to thoroughly enjoy ourselves throughout the day and night.
We would not hesitate in recommending this venue to any Bride & Groom, the Great Southern provides a touch of class which is just hard to find anywhere else!

From the first meeting we had with Denise, we knew the Great Southern was the venue for us. Our planning despite Covid restrictions throughout could not have been easier. Nothing was an issue and everyone was simply brilliant to work with. We must mention Denise especially who was just the dream to
