From the first time we visited the hotel with its beautiful entrance to its picturesque scenic views, we knew this was where we wanted to get married.
The whole process of planning the wedding was so easy thanks to

Alison who was always at the end of the phone or an email. We did not want a run of the mill wedding and she embraced all our ideas and let us have the wedding day we always dreamed of. She thought of every single little detail, it was perfect.

We held both the ceremony and reception at the hotel and the turnaround of the suite was so quick and both the ceremony and meal décor was beautiful with fresh flowers and beautiful centre pieces. Every single staff member was so friendly both before and after the wedding. They always made sure that all our guests were comfortable and accommodated.

The food was outstanding during the drink’s reception and for our meal. It was served quick, hot, and flawless to all our 160 guests. We have received nothing but compliments from all our guests on every aspect of the wedding from the views, the food and their entire stay.

We cannot thank Alison, Ronan and all the staff at the hotel enough for making our day so wonderful, relaxed, and memorable. We will forever be grateful for all they did to make our day so special.

every detail was thought of.

When we met the Head Chef for our tasting every question was answered and requests taken care of. There is also great service staff in the Restaurant.
We cannot say enough about how helpful and friendly everyone was.

On the day everything went exactly as planned. the room looked beautiful, the food was even better then we remembered, the service was impeccable and the bride was perfectly late

The location of the Hotel is off the beaten Track, it's lovely and secluded and offers plenty of space for everyone involved. the views are breathtaking and the accommodation, while it could use a little updating, is clean and well kept.

Altogether we had a wonderful experience and can only recommend it.
