We got married in the lakeside hotel on the 18th of April. We can not recommend it enough. Catherine and her team were brilliant on the day and couldn’t do enough for us. The food, decor and staff were absolutely brilliant. The views for the ceremony were out of this world. Catherine and Sinead

Catherine was our solemniser and wedding coordinator for our wedding last month in the lakeside Killaloe. We knew we were in the best hands from the first time we met her. She took the time to get to know us and made the ceremony so personal. She made the whole wedding planning process so easy &

The staff at the lakeside couldn’t have been better. Everything from start to finish was excellent. I highly recommend them to newly engaged couples looking for an amazing wedding venue.

The Lakeside Hotel was a fantastic venue for our wedding day. Catherine the wedding coordinator was extremely helpful, providing many excellent suggestions for the big day.

The hotel itself had plenty of room for our guests who had a lot of good things to say about the staff and the hotel

itself. The few kids and teens (and some big kids) who attended loved using the facilities (as did the groom on the morning of the wedding!).

The balcony in front of the river, the garden and jetty were such beautiful settings for photographs. The wedding ceremony was held indoors and was one of the highlights of the day. The room was beautifully laid out and all of our quirky additions and musical friends catered for.

The food in general was fantastic - it was difficult to choose the dishes at the tasting - with many of our guests being very complimentary. The staff during the meal were very attentive - they had an excellent manager who was very present and made sure we as the couple were well looked after.

The ballroom was done out lovely for the night's shenanigans and the hotel has a lovely new extension recently done to their bar which made the late night into the early morning jam session memorable. We cannot say enough about the hotel staff.
The bridal suite was very comfortable and has a fabulous view down to Killaloe/Ballina. Thanks again Catherine & your team!

the place. The food was just spectacular and everyone was commenting on the presentation and how tasty it was. The Gardens and lake surrounding it’s just picture perfect and rooms are so spacious and elegant!

Thanks to all the management, Catherine and the team at the Lakeside Hotel gave us the most fantastic day we could have asked for. We can’t wait to come back.
