Claire & Staff,
We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so special. We appreciate everything you did for us and our families that weekend.
Claire was so supportive in the lead up to the wedding and coordinated every detail so well that the entire day ran so smoothly from start to

We had both our ceremony and reception in the hotel and it was such a fantastic setting.
You created the perfect atmosphere for us and our guests and the decor was fabulous.
The meal was also delicious, and was made even better with incredible service throughout - all our guests said how impressed they were.
Your whole team went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and treated us so well from our very first visit.
We even lost something sentimental on the day and the team managed to locate it and get it back into our hands safe and sound.
It’s clear that the staff at the Radisson really care for and love what they do.
From a very happy couple,
A massive thank you,
Gillian and Daniel

wedding on Fri, 5th of August, 2022
Honestly it's hard to put into words how amazing this venue was. It was the very first venue we viewed and I knew the second we walked in it was it. Our first coordinator helped us with all our initial questions and was prompt on replying to all questions and setting us on our countdown journey.

Claire started and with only a few months to go stepped up in realising our dream day. We wanted a relaxed day, sipping cocktails on the deck and enjoying food, well that's exactly what we got. From the moment we walked in it was perfect, the ceremony setting exactly how I imaging it. The reception was exactly the same the fairy tale dream. The food was absolutely perfect and honestly still spoken about when reminiscing. Every single server, manager all staff were so helpful in making sure everything was done right and that everything was the way we wanted. If I could do it over. there isn't anything I would change, I would highly recommend the Radisson Athlone as a wedding venue.

We had our big day on the 29th July this year after 3 new dates due to covid - but nothing was too big or too small for the team at the Radisson in Athlone they were just so helpful and it really was just so stress free with them. Our day at the Hotel was everything and so much more than we ever

could have imagined, from the service, the food, the room itself was all just amazing. They staff were just so hands on so helpful that day it really just was smooth sailing. We had a kids table and anytime I looked down there was always a staff member over with them checking seeing if all was OK with them making sure they had enough food juice just playing with them it was just super. Also our kids stayed that night with us and their room in the hotel was amazing and when we asked for them to be near us it was never an issue it was just super. We still have guests say to us about the service of food we had any amount and it was just amazing . The Barr staff had their work cut out for them let me tell ya but they kept all our guests well watered (hehe). To the management team & staff no matter what I asked or looked for it was never an issue, even the day before going down to bring down our stuff going into the venue room and looking at them all working away to make our day so special. They came overseeing did we like it, they were just brilliant. I couldn't fault the guys at the Radisson and I would highly highly recommend it for a venue to any couple looking to celebrate their day with the Radisson Blu Athlone.

manager Claire, is amazing and was so helpful the entire way through and was a pleasure to work with very quick to respond. The price is very affordable, but the location and view seems like it should be worth a lot more. The hotel and staff there went out of their way to meet our needs, and they are on top of everything. Just wonderful in every way. The photo opportunities are plentiful to get amazing shots with a lot of different backgrounds. All and all, my husband and I were very happy with this venue and we recommend it to all of our engaged friends. We couldn’t be happier with how everything went. All our expectations were met also our guests had great time.

We're just getting a chance to catch our breath after the big day, but both of us just wanted to say a massive thank you. From the moment we stepped in the door to the big day itself, Aisling and the staff in the Radisson hotel were absolutely fantastic and couldn't have done more to help us.

of us had a brilliant day and honestly, we couldn't have hoped for better (well the weather could have played ball a bit more!). A huge reason it went so well was down to you guys!!!
So many of our guests complimented everything...from the food to the friendly staff and the hotel facilities in general.

We really are so grateful for everything you've done for us and already we're looking forward to our next stay!!!.

Kind Regards,
Orla & Shane.

I cannot praise ye enough for all ye have done for me and my husband for our wedding and our anniversary. We couldn't rate ya high enough for our wedding firstly. Aishling is a vital asset to your team and made the organisation process easy and stress-free. She was always at the other end of the

phone to answer a question, give us suggestions and generally help us out, she makes the bride and grooms job much easier and is an absolute pleasure to deal with. The whole wedding day was perfect from start to finish!!! Our arrival by boat was an added bonus and we were made feel special from the minute we arrived. Our guests were equally impressed and spoke very highly of the food, venue and hospitality!!! The Radisson Blu Athlone is definitely a venue I will strongly recommend, and have done to any couples planning their wedding.
Myself and my husband were there last night for our anniversary stay and we were just amazed at how we were treated. The little touches like staying in the bridal suite, prosecco at dinner and the happy anniversary message on the dessert plates really made us feel just as special as we did on our wedding day. Thank you so much for everything, and especially Aishling.

To all staff at Radisson Blu Athlone,
Harrison and I got married last Friday 01st June in your hotel. From checking in on Thursday, we were absolutely made feel like VIP's. Every single member of staff made us feel so welcome and all showed real interest in our day, asking if we were excited or if

we needed any help. On Thursday night, Aoife at the front desk was absolutely fantastic in helping us get organised with all our bits for the wedding and we had a great laugh with her.
Moving on to Friday, we met with Aishling, who as always was genuinely brilliant in helping us sort out the final details and putting our last minute nerves at ease. Aishling was so so helpful during all of our wedding planning and nothing was ever too much of an ask. We would also like to add that both of our mothers were exceptionally complimentary of Aishling's professionalism and kindness - she also helped settle the mammy's nerves on the day!
To the duty managers Philip and the other male duty manager (whose name escapes us right now - we hope you enjoy your holiday!), thank you both so much for the professionally lead day which as a result, ran so smoothly.
To all of the other staff, you were all absolutely amazing. It really is the personal touches and how people are treated that makes people remember these special days and the hotels that they happen in. We have received so many compliments of how excellent all of the staff were and we feel it's our job to make sure you hear these comments. Our day was so good that we actually have some guests who are looking into having their wedding at your hotel.
We cannot thank you all enough for all of your help, service and professionalism.

Thank you all and we wish you continued success at your hotel!

Just want to say a huge thank you for all you did for us. You made everything so easy for us in the run up to our wedding day and you were such a great support to us at all times.

On the day of the wedding, we could not have asked for anything more from both yourself and the rest of the staff.

From managers in function room and at bar, bar staff, waiting staff, receptionists etc... everybody was so friendly and accommodating.

The biggest feedback we got from our guests was that they really enjoyed how relaxed and easy going the whole day was. Many of them also commented on the waiting staff and standard of food, it was first class and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

Thanks again for everything, the whole day was perfect and we would not hesitate to recommend the Radisson to anyone getting married.

Many thanks,
Helen & Ian

From our first introductory visit to the hotel we knew we wanted to have our wedding in the Radisson Blu, Athlone. Every member of staff were friendly and the wedding planners were so informative and open to any ideas/ suggestions we had for our wedding day.

A special mention has to go to

Aisling, the wedding co-ordinator, who was with us from start to finish to plan our big day, she was always helpful, friendly and gave us great advice. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Aisling.

On our wedding day, the staff were so helpful and friendly again to all our guests, and we received so many positive comments about the hotel and the meal from our guests. The hotel was decorated beautifully with any little touches added in that we had asked for. We were brought in for a fantastic meal tasting before the wedding and we were given the opportunity to meet the Chef and dicuss our menu.

We had a photo book at our wedding, and the staff added a really nice touch by taking a photo for our book and sending us their well wishes, it was a lovely thought!

We had a fantastic day, and we would recommend the hotel to any couple.

Hi there

Myself and John were married on the 9th of September 2016. This was truly the best day of our lives. The hotel was amazing everything was perfect I couldn't fault them in anything.

few minutes and allowed us to arrive by boat this was the start of our fantastic day. From the champagne reception to the Sunday morning we checked out it was magical . The rooms was beautiful everyone of the staff so welcoming and helpful they made us feel really special on our big day.

All of the guests raved about the food and service, they were delighted and so were we. Many said it was the best meal they ever had which we were delighted to hear. Everyone was in a great mood after the dinner and we all danced the night away into the wee hours of the morning.

Thanks to Ailish for all your help before the wedding day and all the staff on the 9th , 10th and 11th Sept 2016 everyone was so friendly I would definitely recommend the Radisson Blu in Athlone if you are thinking of getting married you won't regret it.

All the very best to the staff cannot thank you enough looking forward to our anniversary dinner next year.

Best wishes.

We had our wedding here in July 2016. From the first time we walked into the hotel and met with both Victor and Aisling we knew we had our found our venue. We were due to visit other venues that day but cancelled them because we were so sure.

Aisling was on hand for every single question,

request and query throughout the months and nothing was too much to ask. We had our tasting a few months previous to the wedding and from the waitress to the manager to the head chef, we had lots of advice from those in the know. I did wonder how the hotel was going to produce a meal for over 200 just as good as we got for 4 people but I needn't have worried. The sheer number of compliments from the guests about the food gave testament to how amazing it was. The starters, main course, dessert....everything was just delicious.
The day itself ran so smoothly and anything we had requested or had been promised was provided above and beyond.

I would highly recommend the Radisson Blu, Athlone to any future won't be disappointed! Thank you to Aisling, Victor and all the staff for everything!

Maeve and Ger.

The hotel is stunning from the moment we walked into it the lobby is so big and airy the decking area on the banks of the River Shannon was out of this world. It was stunning being able to sit out on the decking for lunch or just a beverage with all our friends and family with views of the boats

tied up in the marina, the bridal suite was stunning. The service was just fantastic, they couldn't do enough to make our stay so enjoyable as we had our wedding there. The events coordinator Aisling who was absolutely fantastic, couldn't have asked for a better person, she really helped us in every way if we needed advice on plans she'd be there on the phone, email or in person. I'd like to say if you’re looking for a first class service book this hotel as it has it all friendly staff and fantastic rooms, we would recommend this hotel to anybody as every one of our guest were blown away, they were amazed at the quality of the food and the politeness of the staff the receptionists were always helpful and polite. Could not fault this hotel in anyway.

We had our wedding on the 28th of august 2015 in the Radisson blu athlone and I can say that everything was perfect down to the tiny details. The hotel its self is in a perfect location and the views of the Shannon from the Marina Suite are fantastic the comfort we had that knowing we didn’t have

to worry about anything on the day was incredible. All our guests complement the staff and the rooms and said they couldn’t have been any nicer. Aisling was our wedding coordinator and she was amazing she was so calm and helpful, replied to every email and phone call and explained details down to the smallest of things. I couldn’t have imagined our wedding day to be any more perfect if I tried and that was down to the brilliant and very professional staff of the Radisson blu athlone.

To Denise, Barath and all the staff at the Radisson Blu Hotel ,Athlone. We cannot mention enough thanks to all the staff at the Radisson for making our day so special and also for being part of it. From the first phone call and meeting to the final farewell the staff offered professional service yet

Read More

at the same time very personal. Denise was our first point of contact and was so helpful it was like an extra pair of hands any bridal party could need. The hotel allowed our civil ceremony to have the right ambience and allowed it to be perfect... what more could a couple ask for... We had a wonderful 5 course meal in the Marina Suite which has fabulous views of the Shannon - the meal could not be faulted along with the wine arranged by the hotel. Followed by the evening food which was equally as good. There was plenty of places to have pictures taken including the beautiful honeymoon suite. Our guests were impressed and as well catered for as we were. They had great accommodation followed by the breakfast to keep them going on their journies home. All was done with a smile... Thank you for making our day one to remember and see you all on our 1st Anniversary. John & Roisin

Our wedding reception in the Radisson Hotel, Athlone on July 29th 2011 was catered for in a most professional & friendly manner with perfection to every detail. From the initial meeting with Amanda through to the wedding day itself, the attention, thoughtfulness, friendliness and professionalism

projected by the staff involved was 1st Class. Our guests were complimentary of the reception on arrival and the evening dinner which was cooked to perfection and well presented - even though on the day we were delayed by over one hour due to ongoing improvements on the dual carriageway resulting in heavy traffic and long delays. We had a beautiful day made all that more beautiful by the Staff of the Radisson Hotel. Many Thanks Guys – You know how to make a day extra special. Regards Hermann & Jane

and facilities. We had a complimentary wine and menu tasting. On the day itself, the staff's attention to detail really impressed us and made us feel at ease. The service for the champagne reception and main meal was efficient and friendly. Loads of our guests commented on the quality of the food and the house wine. The function room itself was spacious and comfortable with magnificent views of the River Shannon. I couldn't recommend the Radisson in Athlone enough to host a wedding. Given chance to do it over again, we would not change anything. Joe & Barbara
