We had our wedding day a few weeks ago in the beautiful Salthill Hotel. We had an amazing day from start to finish. Everything went exactly the way we hoped if not better. The hotel was just incredible and I must say a huge thanks to Michelle the wedding co-ordinator for all the support and help in

making our day so special. She was always quick to reply to any emails we had. A huge thank you to Pauline also who did an amazing job on the day making sure everything ran smoothly with meal timings etc. The food was absolutely incredible and so many of our guests have come to us since the wedding and said how great the service was and of course the amazing food. With having such a big wedding - this was obviously a very important factor for us. The waiting staff were all so attentive and friendly and so experienced in their field. Bar staff were great too and well staffed. I really couldn't fault anything and would highly recommend the Salthill Hotel as a wedding venue. The hotel's location also is brilliant to get some amazing pictures with the Circle of Life garden next door and of course the Prom across the road. I just wish we could do it all over again. Thanks so much for everything Michelle and the amazing team at the Salthill Hotel. Mr & Mrs. Carton. x

We had a fabulous wedding day. The hotel was great. On the day Pauline really did a wonderful job she had a warm welcome for us from the get go & anything we had asked her was done in minutes. We are still receiving compliments on the food so that really made us happy as it’s such a large part of

the day. We stayed for two nights as did a lot of our family members & they also enjoyed their stays.

The only issues really were that we had several points of contact for the initial organizing of our big day. Which is a bit nerve wracking. We were probably a bit too relaxed about things so we didn’t put any pressure on anyone.

There was a change made to the table plan the day before which meant Enda’s family table was farther away from the top table. The partition blocking off the traffic to the gym wasn’t put up until I asked about it(Pauline made it happen) when we were about to enter the rockbarton suite. Also there was to be the large Love light up letters in the suite also but they weren’t there on the day.

But apart from that we were very happy

Our wedding day at the Salthill Hotel was simply incredible. I would not change a single detail. Michelle was such a treasure to work with in planning our big day, she took all the stress out of it for us. Nothing was ever too much trouble, always only an email or phone call away. Pauline for the

We finally celebrated our wedding at the Salthill Hotel after 3 years planning it and 2 postponed dates and it was worth the wait! We couldn’t have asked for a better day! The food was delicious, some guests commented “the best wedding food they’ve ever had!” The room was so beautifully

We have dealt with a number of wedding coordinators as it had been so long in the planning and they communicated everything perfectly so that our day ran seamlessly. All the guests had a fab time and loved staying in the hotel. We would recommend this to anyone and can’t wait to return for our anniversary stay!

We had the most special day thanks to the wonderful team at Salthill hotel,even though there was 3 other weddings that week we really were made to feel like our wedding was the only one that year!!! There was no task too big or too small and the level of care and detail is exceptional.

Everyone had a great time all thanks to the wonderful staff at the Salthill Hotel. Thank you again for everything you did for us. Words cannot do justice how perfect this place was for our wedding!

It was a day where I finally got to marry my best friend, whilst surrounded by our nearest and dearest. But, it was also a day that was perfected due to the level of care and attention that was provided by the Salthill Hotel. Each and every one of our guests complimented the hotel/staff and left

Read More

with a feeling of awe. They all spoke of how friendly and attentive all the staff were throughout the day. For those who had stayed for a few nights, they spoke of the beautiful bedrooms and the overall high standard of the hotel. The food served to each and every person was phenomenal. It was beautifully arranged/detailed and served very quickly with plenty of extra servings available (including plenty of wine/water/refreshments). In addition to the big day (6th of July), was the afters in the bar (on the 7th). This was such a wonderful continuation of the service we had received on the day prior. Great venue, great company, great food and it was all topped off by the cherry that is this hotel. We could not have asked for a better experience over all (from the start of our planning, 2yrs ago, to the Monday after our wedding and even still). To this day, when we walk into the hotel we receive a warm welcome and a smile from each member of staff. Highly recommended!!!

I don’t think we can express how amazing our wedding day was in a few words. The wedding co-ordinator Hazel and the hotel team are absolutely flawless. We were well and truly looked after. We felt like the most important people. The only thing we would change is if we could do it all over again.

From the moment I met Hazel there has not been enough she could do for us. Including my last minute emails, literally the night before. You are a true gem. The hotel is superb. The service is seamless, the food was delicious. All the staff are amazing and so helpful, professional and friendly. We and all the guests had the most amazing weekend. I would definitely recommend the Salthill hotel for a dream wedding location.

We had our civil ceremony and reception in the Salthill Hotel in February 2019. We had originally been dealing with a different planner/management team at the start of our wedding planning but in the months before the wedding we had the pleasure of working with the new management team-Hazel and

Steph. From start to finish on our wedding day Hazel and Steph made the experience excellent beyond our highest expectations. They outdid themselves with the support and professionalism they demonstrated on the day-from calming us down before we walked in to the ceremony, through to ensuring the music ran smoothly during it and that rest of the day ran smoothly too. Overall the hotel staff were also excellent-the lady at reception (with the dark hair and glasses) whose name has escaped me was a pleasure to deal with in particular, as too were the breakfast room staff (especially Jean ), the girls who attended to the top table on the wedding day and the waiting staff, the restaurant manager and some of the other managers we met over the few days we stayed in the hotel. The food and presentation on the wedding day was fantastic-we had just under 270 guests and they were all delighted with the quality and quantity of the food and wine and the prompt service. Overall our experience was very positive and we would recommend the hotel with its current management team to others considering it as a wedding venue.

The Salthill Hotel were an absolute dream to deal with from the day we first enquired about having our wedding there. They tailored made a package for us with everything we wanted to include in our day and nothing was too much trouble. Hazel, the wedding coordinator made the run up to our wedding

stress free as her organisational skills are second to none, she had everything covered. Our guests are still talking about the incredible food at the Salthill Hotel - some have said it was the best they’ve ever had at a wedding. The steak was a big hit with all who had it. One of our guests was a head chef and he said the steak would “melt in your mouth”. At no stage did we have to ask the staff to do anything, they had absolutely everything covered. Each and every one of them were friendly, welcoming and accommodating towards ourselves and our guests. In fact, we have yet to come across a nicer hotel staff. Niall and his team looked after everything in our drinks reception and Pauline and her team looked after everyone in the function room. Reservations & those in reception were most helpful when we were booking in our guests. Overall, we had the most wonderful wedding day and we have the Salthill Hotel to thank for pulling out all the stops. We would highly recommend them for weddings or just a weekend stay in Galway, you will not be disappointed.

We were delighted with how our day turned out. Hazel, our wedding coordinator was so easy to deal with and very responsive to all of our emails and requests. The food was beautiful on the day of our wedding from the canapes on arrival, to our three course meal, the fish and chips cones and

sandwiches in the evening, and the finger food in the residents bar later in the night. The steak is definitely worth considering when you are deciding on your menu. It was cooked medium to well which suited majority of people's preference. We received so many compliments on how well it tasted and how nice it was to see it on the menu. Hazel was very accommodating to all of our requests. She emphasised that the day was all about ensuring that we were happy with every small detail. Millennium Park which is located beside the hotel is an ideal location for taking some pictures, as well as out on the Prom. It saved so much time for us as there was no travelling required. Overall we were delighted with how everything went for the entire day. Many of our guests informed us that they had gone out to reception after meal to give their feedback on how happy they were with the food. That was great for us to hear.

looked after everyone so well. With lots of guest travelling from outside of Galway, the venue was important to us and being right on the sea was perfect; nearly all our guests had a chance to walk the prom.

The wedding itself could not have gone better, the food was amazing and plentiful. The service was efficient. We got great feedback from our guests, the parsnip soup was the hit of the day! Hazel, who is excellent at her job, was on top of everything from big to small and we always felt she had everything in hand.

We could not have been happier with the whole event and would highly recommend the Salthill Hotel as a wedding venue.

Our wedding was now three weeks ago and everyone is still talking about how amazing it was from the decor to the food to the staff. We cannot thank you guys (especially Darius) for all that you did to help us make our dream wedding exactly what we hoped!

From the second we arrived at the hotel we were looked after and the day flowed seamlessly thanks to the efforts made by the staff - Dara and I didn't have to worry about anything, all pressure was taken off. The cheese and port stand went down a treat, a number of my friends are looking to steal the idea!

Thanks again for everything.

all weekend during our 7 course tasting menu, the service at dinner, pre-drinks reception, the bar that day and night, the smiles on everyone’s faces spoke volumes. They even helped us pull off our very own in house nightclub for after our band... absolutely everything was just first class! John and I were truly blown away by the level of effort and care we received on the day and we both felt like royalty. I've seen so many weddings through the doors over the years at the hotel and feared ours would be no different, how wrong I was. It was just absolutely class, the hotel overall and the ballroom and draping looked smashing on the day and brought a tear to my eye. I won't ever forget all the support we received, each and every one of the hotel staff made our dream day a reality and truly showed that Salthill Hotel can do a 5 star wedding and more!! I cannot recommend the hotel enough. First class.

biggest THANK YOU for providing us with the best of service over the best weekend of our lives.

From the moment we began the wedding planning right up to departing yesterday, you have embodied the type of professionalism, friendliness, enthusiasm and kindness that we never would have expected. Some of the nicest comments we received both on the day of the wedding and the days before and after were from guests and family about how amazing, kind and accommodating you all were. From the bar staff, front of house and waiting staff, reception (Peggy, Eileen, Ciara, and all the gang) the breakfast staff (Jean leading the way) the porters, staff in the Prom (Goran did a great job on Thursday and provided a fantastic bar service over the weekend) and to everyone who worked tirelessly on Friday, we cannot shower you all in enough praise. From assisting with elderly/disabled guests, high fiving the youngest kids and providing a service that would be akin to a 5+ Star Hotel to all in attendance, everyone represented the Hotel in a phenomenal light.

A note on the wedding day itself. We had a very simple brief; feed people well with good food throughout and keep them topped up with any beverage they fancied so as to keep everyone happy. And you guys nailed it!!! The level of detail shown throughout: drinks before the ceremony, the pre reception, the evening reception, the late night and residents bar was all beyond anything we had imagined. We have heard nothing but glowing reviews about the food, the service from the staff, the "generous" wine measures and everything in between!

A special word of thanks to Pauline for keeping the evening running smoothly and kept everyone's bellies full at ALL stages of evening!! The quality of food and service throughout was a credit to everyone, and please pass on our thanks to all of the kitchen staff, and Johnny for creating the most beautiful meal.

A huge thank you must go to Valerie, who looked after most of the planning for our big day from the very early stages. Thank you so so much for your time and effort, the dedication, the care and affection you showed throughout. No job was too big, no task was too absurd and above all every single time we met you had the biggest and most genuine smile on your face. We were at ease throughout the build up and the day, as were you, and the results speak for themselves.

To all of the staff; you have a great thing going. Patrick, thank you for everything you did for us. The group dynamic is more like a small family run country pub than a large City hotel. Don't lose that, it's amazing to be within a working group that gets on so well, provides an outstanding service and above all, everyone has fun doing it. You are a credit to the hotel, and we cannot recommend you high enough.

We enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you. As mentioned by one of your reception staff on Saturday morning, you seemed to gel with us and bond with us, and that feeling is mutual. We will never forget that, and are eternally grateful.

We look forward to calling in and visiting in the future, and attending future events with you. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

With the warmest regards,
Donna and Declan Hickey

Your team looked after everybody so well throughout the day. We are extremely grateful to you and your team Valerie for making our Wedding day so wonderful and stress free.

To Pauline, Barry & Valerie who we there on the day before and on the wedding day from early morning until late that night to help, guide us and ensure everything went smoothly.

We have to say the food and service was just second to none and the feed back form every guest was the food, service & Staff were first class and the best they had seen in a long time. We could not but highly recommend the Salthill Hotel.

So thank you all for making our wedding day so special and one we will not forget.

Wishing you all continued success.

Hi Valerie,

Just a short note of appreciation from myself and Nichola, regarding the exceptional service provided by the Salthill Hotel on our wedding day, Saturday 11th February.

The food and drink at the pre-reception, main reception and in the residents bar were of the highest quality and

went down an absolute treat with all the guests. We received so many remarks on how fantastic the food and drink was throughout the day, as well as the generosity of the portions (the extra helping of sea bass and fillet steak was something some guests hadn't seen before).

I also want to highlight the friendliness of all the staff in the hotel, Eileen the head waitress and the rest of the staff could not have been more accommodating and professional in ensuring the whole day went smoothly.

So many guests told us and the rest of our family that it was one of the best weddings that they've ever been to, so a huge thank you from myself and Nichola for contributing a massive part to the overall success of the day.

Thank you for all your help throughout the planning and preparation, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Thank you all so much for making our wedding day, the best of our lives.

Hi ya

Meant to do this ages ago and never got around to it. Just a little word of thanks you all in Salthill Hotel especially you ladies & Kerry. You guys made our day so special from the moment we arrived. It was truly our dream day and we wouldn’t change

any of it if we were to do it all over again (trust me we won’t). Our guests are still raving about the food on the day, it was just excellent and they couldn’t get over the hotel and service that was given to them on the day. The way you guys set up the room was just brilliant, it was stunning and a lot of our guests were just amazed by it, they had never seen a nicer room apparently, a few mentioned the lovely ambiance in the room. A lot of our guests had never been in the Salthill Hotel (which I found amusing) and very impressed with it, and said that they will come back so hopefully you will get some new customers.

Myself and Gerry can’t thank you enough for everything ye have done for us, stars the lot of ye! We have settled into married life (all roses and love hearts!!!!!), honeymoon over and just waiting the Sam McGuire to make his journey across the Shannon on Saturday, sure that would just top our year off completely!!

Hope all is well you all, thanks so much again xx
