I can not thank all of the staff at the Shearwater, especially Estella. Estella responded to every question and need for help extremely quickly and helpful. The entire process of planning and preparing for our wedding was made a breeze and very enjoyable by the hotel. We were not very knowledgeable

with the planning and running of weddings and decisions we had to make and the hotel staff helped shed light on anything we needed making everything stress free from their great knowledge and experience with weddings! All staff were extremely friendly. The day of the wedding you would think all staff were guests at the wedding they were so kind and helpful to everyone. The day went without a bump thanks to them all. Our guests were all taken back by the beauty of the hotel, rooms, staff, drinks and amazing food! I was trying to have a slightly "unusual", "untraditional" wedding and I feared it would be difficult but definitely was not. The Shearwater is my favourite hotel and we will continue to use the pool, bar, restaurant and B&B because of how amazing it all was and our children love it too!!

From the moment we viewed the venue with Ruth, the service and professionalism was fantastic. Anything we inquired about was not a problem and anything we wished to have at our reception was followed through without an issue. Communication with the hotel was brilliant and Estella was at the other

end of the phone or email at any time, which was very reassuring when planning a wedding through a pandemic. We honestly could not recommend The Shearwater highly enough for a wedding reception, they gave us all we wanted and more and we would not hesitate in recommending it to family and friends in the future.

The Shearwater were just perfect to deal with, very quick to get back to us with any queries we had or changes we needed to make. The food and service on the day was just fabulous, we had so many compliments on the food. We would highly recommend for any couple looking to book their wedding here!

Our wedding reception was in the Shearwater Hotel on the 7th July 2018. Aisling our wedding coordinator and the management team Sue and Des went above and beyond to make myself and Enda's wedding day perfect. The food was exceptional and everyone is still talking about it. Each member of staff was

very friendly and attentive and the service was excellent. No request was too big or too small from start to finish. We cannot thank Aisling and the team enough for an amazing day.

wedding on Sat, 28th of July, 2018
The Shearwater Hotel in Ballinasloe is a fantastic location for any wedding. The staff are amazing and went above and beyond our expectations of our wedding day, particularly the wedding co-ordinators (first Noel and then Aisling) and hotel management (Des, Liam and Colin). They offered us an all

inclusive package which is great value for money and led us directly to suppliers, making our planning less stressful. We had several meetings and made us very relaxed in the run up to the big day. The display on the day was fabulous. It was everything we could have hoped for. The service was fantastic. The dinner is still being talked about. The food is just fantastic, everyone loved it. And if anyone has an allergy, they make sure they offer them something equally as fantastic. From the drinks reception to last call in the bar (and everything in between), the staff looked after our every need. Aisling and Des were always nearby in case we needed anything. Everything ran smoothly and effortlessly, it felt as if all we had to do was be present. So much work goes on behind the scenes and this staff is extremely dedicated to their brides and grooms. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They made our wedding day to be much more than we ever thought it could be. Thank you!
