have been more helpful and easy to deal with. She answered all of our questions and never made us feel foolish for asking! She really went above and beyond to make our day special for us. She also helped with my train when getting up to the top table which I didn't realise until I saw the video... thank you Natalie!! All of the staff in the hotel were very helpful, friendly and easy to deal with, in particular Mary in Reservations. The food was amazing and was commented on by all of the guests. No one left hungry! Any couples who are looking for venues should definitely check out the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa.
