Galway Girl: June + Rob's Traditional Wedding At Loughrea Hotel

Sometimes, we can get caught up in the materialistic elements of a wedding. For June and Rob, simplicity was key to enjoying the most important day of their lives.

To Damien, Nicole, and the whole team at Loughrea Hotel,

From the bottom of our hearts, we wish to thank you all so much for the help, support, and professionalism you all provided to us and our family and friends on our wedding day. From the lead up to the big day with your endless support and

knowledge to provide us with ease of mind and security on our wedding day. The hotel looked amazing with the new carpets and the revamp of the hotel to the exceptional food and service the staff gave on the day, nothing went unnoticed.

Guests are still talking about the fun they had with the Dj. Scruffy Duffy from the moment they walked into the room to the moment they walked out. The photos and videos speak for themselves. Having our Day Two on the rooftop bar was top-class. It made our day private and secluded from the hotel, we felt like we were abroad. Food again was amazing for day 2 and each guest had comfort in knowing they didn't need to drive anywhere for the weekend and just park up and relax. Some guests made the most of this and chilled and made use of the spa while they were there; as did we and this relaxation was just what we needed. This is everything we hoped for and dreamt of and the Loughrea Hotel has made our dream wedding come true.

We will be forever grateful to you all and no doubt see you all soon along the way as we journey through life.
Thank you for making our special day so exceptional.

All our love,
John & Andrea x

I have been singing the praises of The Loughrea Hotel & Spa to anyone who would listen since our first meeting with Nicole a year before our wedding. We felt so confident in Nicole and her team. Her relaxed and professional manner was the perfect fit for us as a couple, and she was always quick to

respond to any query and to give helpful advice. I trusted the team at the Loughrea Hotel & Spa and they made our wedding planning process easy and stress-free.

I enjoyed my wedding day fully from start to finish. I never worried for a second about the decor, food, service providers, timeline… anything! The relationship we had built with Nicole and the amazing service provided by Damien and the entire staff of the hotel allowed me to relax completely. This was the best gift I could have asked for on my wedding day.

We were treated like royalty on the day, and since our wedding, we have heard countless positive comments from our guests about the venue. The food was simply excellent! Special requests were catered to without hesitation, and everything was tasty, fresh, and warm. Especially considering our large number of guests, everyone was so impressed with the food provided from the beautiful hot and cold canapes at the drinks reception, to the exquisite meal, and the delicious late-night bites.

There is lots of space around the ballroom, and many of our guests appreciated the opportunity to use the drinks reception area throughout the night. We had a sweet cart, Tayto wall, wishing well, centerpieces of choice, fabulous large pieces of decor, crisps sandwiches in the resident's bar, and everything we could have wanted to be provided by the venue. I had very little to do and I appreciated this in the days leading up to the wedding.

In terms of value and service, we feel that The Loughrea Hotel & Spa is a true gem! I would recommend any couple to sit down with Nicole and see what they have on offer. Compared to other packages and venues that we researched, we were impressed from the start with how flexible and accommodating this venue could be.

And now, having enjoyed the wonderful experience of being a Loughrea Hotel & Spa wedding couple, I can say that my expectations were far surpassed. We had the perfect day for us, and I am truly grateful to the team at the Loughrea Hotel & Spa for making it so special.

From the moment we met Nicole we knew we would have no worries. Nothing was too much and open communication between us made sure stress was not a factor in planning our wedding! Genuinely we can't thank you enough, you were so sound and cool and just what's needed when dealing with organising our

wedding. Everything on the day was perfect and went very smoothly. The food was fantastic and all our guests commented on how great the food was as well as the service.
We had our day two in the roof top bar which was loved by everyone again the food was lovely and so generous. Great standard and quality. Thank you Nicole, Damien and all the team for an unforgettable couple of days.

They say your wedding day is the best day of your lives, and it truly was, but I honestly believe that for us, it was in a large part due to our spectacular venue and its staff; hte Lough Rea Hotel and Spa.

We opted to hold our civil ceremony and reception at the hotel and it was, hands down,

one of the best decisions we made. From the initial contact right through to the very end of our day (and indeed the next morning) everything was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Damien and his staff were nothing short of faultless and nothing was too much trouble for them or the hotel's wedding coordinator, Nicole. They made planning our wedding at relatively short notice a breeze.

The day itself went off without a single hitch and I can only attribute it to Damien and Nicole's dedication and attention to detail. Nothing was overlooked. As a bride you expect to be a little stressed on the day (and before!) But the team at the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa took all of that away.

The ceremony room was decorated to perfection, the food was out of this world and the serving staff were incredibly attentive and friendly. The transition from meal to after party was seamless and the evening buffet was perfect. I heard more than one of our guests comment that they'd never been so well fed at a wedding!

The Honeymoon suite was magical, such a beautiful and elegant room. It really was the cherry on top of a fantastic day.

We cannot thank the hotel and staff enough for making our day so stress free and enjoyable for us. If we were to do it all over again we would not hesitate to book the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa again for our wedding and recommend it to every future bride and groom out there.

Do yourself (and your stress levels!) a favour and put your trust in the team at the Loughrea Hotel and Spa, you will be glad that you did.

So, thank you again to Damien and all the staff at the hotel and we can't wait to see you all again for our one year anniversary.
