Myself and Anthony got married in the Oriel House Hotel on Sunday 13th of June, and we cannot thank the hotel and staff enough for the best day of our lives. They were amazing. We would highly recommend the Oriel House Hotel to any new wedding couple thinking of a hotel. The staff were amazing. The

We were married in Oriel House on Dec 31st 2020. It was definitely a wedding to remember.

The night before our wedding, the Taoiseach announced weddings were down to six guests. But, unfortunately, he failed to finish his sentence and say it was from Jan 3rd, so for about the next hour before

this was clarified, there was a huge panic.

The Oriel House Hotel was good enough to agree to open just for us for our wedding during level 5. THANK YOU for keeping your promise as from talking to other brides, I know other hotels did not. No wonder you have won so many wedding awards in the past few years because you know how to treat your clients. You made us feel like we mattered rather than just being a business transaction.

Elaine was amazing since Day 1 when we booked it for 240 guests, and she didn't give up on us when we down to about 24! Instead, she came up with ideas and solutions to help the day keep its magic. In addition, she genuinely cares for her couples.

When Elaine was not available, Ciara took over and helped to keep the dream alive and kicking. It must have been a logistical nightmare to sort out staff, food stock, prices and maintain the highest covid standards for just us. But they did, and it means the world to us.

On the evening itself, another professional and friendly manager, Niamh, ran the show for us and the few staff running the bar and waiting on tables did a great job. Special thanks to the chef and kitchen staff too. What a feast! Everybody loved the food.

Our guests very much appreciated the mulled wine and tasty bites on arrival. The kids loved the hot chocolate. The bucket of ‘CORONA’ beers was a bit of fun after the year we had!

The ballroom looked so pretty and didn't feel like we were missing out. There was an atmosphere of magic in the ballroom that day.

The stairs make a great spot for wedding photos, and we were able to take socially distant photos due to the wide-open stairs.

The honeymoon suite was heaven. After not being allowed to travel for about 1 year, it was amazing to sleep in a different place! Our guests said the same about their own rooms, and we all felt it was a real novelty to be away from home.

It was so lovely to have all 25 people turn up for breakfast. We were the only 25 in the whole hotel, so there was just one sitting. It was so lovely to see everyone the next day.

I won't say it was stress-free, but planning a wedding never is, especially a Wedding during a pandemic.

I particularly encourage any brides & grooms to consider having Christmas/Winter weddings in the Oriel. The twinkling lights outside and the rich Christmas decorations inside make the place extra special at that time of year. We are looking forward to doing it all again on Dec 29th 2021, with a ballroom FULL of people with music, dancing and staying up past midnight!
