The day itself blew us away the drinks reception area and our reception room was amazing. The food was just out of this world and above all the staff were fantastic and so friendly. Everyone that attended has commented on how amazing the hotel was and raving about the food and how friendly and lovely you all were.
Sally the wedding coordinator was incredible and so accommodating and easy to deal with - Sally and Ruth made sure we had the most amazing weekend and that everything ran so smoothly.
A huge shout out to Martin - He is such an asset to the hotel. He was amazing on the morning of the wedding and is such a kind and lovely person. It really was a pleasure to have him around on the morning of the wedding checking in to make sure we were ok and if we needed anything.
We honestly can't thank you all enough. We will be forever grateful that we had the pleasure to meet and deal with you all & that we made the perfect decision by having our wedding in the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa. The whole weekend was above and beyond our expectations and that is down to you all!
