lovely the staff were to each and every one of our guests.

The food was incredibly delicious - Ultan is a food wizard!!

The day ran so smoothly (not that I had any doubts) but having never been at a wedding in the Hardiman before I didn't realise how attentive all the staff are to all the guests.

It was superb from start to finish!!

We had the most amazing day and we are so thrilled we decided to chose the Hardiman and that we had all of you amazing people looking after us.

Dear the staff of Hotel Meyrick,
We cannot believe it is now a month since we got married.
We would both like to express our thanks for the wonderful day you put on for our wedding day.
Valerie, you were absolutely amazing. We were delighted with you the first day we met you. You put our minds at

ease and you were wonderful at talking us through the day and for thinking of all the small bits and extra bits that would make the day that extra bit special for us.
Your communication was excellent with us and you were always so quick at responding to us and we knew you were always at the other end of the phone if we needed you. Although, we only met you a few times, we felt we had known you much longer. You always had a smile on your face and always made us feel very welcome. I can say, without any doubt that any couple would be safe in your hands and they would be extremely lucky to have you involved in the planning of their wedding... You are an amazing Wedding Coordinator.
Patrick, thank you very much for making us feel so at ease in the last few weeks in the lead up to our wedding. It was lovely to meet both Valerie and yourself before the big day to talk through the day. It was great to be greeted by such a friendly face when we pulled up to the hotel on our wedding day. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to chat to you much on the day but I could see you were so attentive to everyone. You told me you would make sure everything ran smoothly and it certainly did.
Ultan, the amazing chef. We absolutely loved everything we tried at our tasting so you really made the menu choice a tough one. We were 100% confident about our meal going into the wedding and this meant so much to us as it was so important for us to have a great meal. The food was 5 star. Each meal was presented beautifully and tasted even better. We were so happy knowing you were in the background. We greatly appreciated the efforts you went to for all of the coeliac guests. T
