We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Lakeside Hotel in June 2021 after rescheduling due to Covid. With restrictions still in place and changing regularly Catherine was always calm, helpful and available whenever we needed her throughout all the uncertainty.

We can’t thank Catherine and all the staff at The Lakeside enough. They were absolutely outstanding. No matter what the question was during the lead up to our wedding they had an answer. Courtney was so helpful with all the bookings of the bedrooms. On the day of our wedding all our guests were

looked after tremendously. The food was outstanding, both on arrival and the main meal itself. It was piping hot and very tasty. I have a food intolerance and they looked after me so well. They have almond milk which means a lot too someone who can’t have dairy. All our guests said how nice the meal was and so tasty. The rooms are also fabulous and so clean and lovely clean towels given daily. The waterfront Rooms are out of this world, I’d highly recommend them. The residents bar was also super and the bar man was so friendly and he was up for the craic along with us. The breakfast is the best I’ve ever got. The rashers are proper thick rashers and the hash browns, all delicious and lovely and hot.
I can’t recommend The Lakeside enough and they went above and beyond for us.
Some of the guests loved the hotel so much they have booked in for a stay in January and I also will be joining them.
Thanks again to all the staff at The Lakeside. Catherine you're super.
Very happy bride and groom xx

We had our wedding reception in the Lakeside Hotel in July 2021. Despite planning our wedding during a global pandemic, no problem was insurmountable by the wedding coordinator in the hotel, Catherine. Lyndsey was also a god send in helping us to organise the accommodation for our guests. We were

blessed with a beautiful, sunny day and were delighted to be facilitated to have our drinks reception outside with views of the lake. Our meal went off without a hitch and was enjoyed by everyone. Thanks so much to all the staff in the hotel and leisure centre for making the days before and after the wedding so memorable for all our guests, especially the children. Highly recommend The Lakeside Hotel as a wedding venue!
