We can't compliment the Lakeside enough. The venue is beautiful, well decorated. The garden outside, overlooking the river and town of Killaloe was an absolute dream. We were so lucky. Catherine was so much fun and so organised and helpful. In the hectic days leading up to the day she kept us on

track. The food was amazing. Compliments to the chef. Everyone was delighted...and stuffed. The function room had loads of daylight streaming in so you didn't feel like you were in a bunker, which is common in a lot of hotels. It was beautiful. Highly recommend the place and it's wonderful staff

day. She always has a smile on her face too! Such a bubbly and hard working person! I wanted to bring in a few little pieces as decor for our wedding- a tree and a bike to name a few and yes was always the answer! The staff and Catherine were just fab! Just to note that my decor wasn't needed- Catherine and the team has the place beautifully decorated! It was just stunning! Picture Perfect! The staff at the Lakeside were very friendly and helpful to our guests on the day. The feedback from our friends and family was just brilliant! The were full with delicious food- thanks to the Thomas, the hard working chefs and waiters! The whole day ran so smoothly and We can't thank the Lakeside enough for everything they did to make our dream so special to us.

We chose the Lakeside for it's location, setting, and for it's reputation for weddings, and we were not disappointed! The Lakeside surpassed our expectations across the board. Catherine Lewis is a fantastic wedding and events manager. Any request we made was dealt with so smoothly, she is so

approachable, warm, and very organised! The day went so smoothly, and we attribute this to the incredible organisational skills of Catherine, and also the rest of the team. The staff at the hotel during the reception were very professional and efficient, while Thomas ensured the smooth operation of the day. Even details such as having some food and prosecco put aside for us when we came out of the ceremony (which was much appreciated). Overall, I cannot recommend this team enough for the organisation of a wedding.
We had a humanist ceremony in the hotel, and so many guests commented on the amazing turnaround from ceremony setting to dinner setting of the ballroom. The staff transformed the room from ceremony to reception and the room looked gorgeous.
We highly highly recommend this hotel for a wedding, and are so delighted that we went with them. We wouldnt change a thing!
on Wed, 30th of January, 2019
Catherine & her team were phenomenal to deal with throughout our entire wedding journey. From the intricate details, we wanted added to the day, to the food, wine, service, hospitality - everything was more than we could have asked for! Many friends and family have complimented the venue since -

I can not recommend highly enough the Lakeside Hotel to host your wedding.
It is an amazing hotel, with top-level personal service, in a beautiful setting.
Even though it mainly hosts larger wedding events, we had a small, intimate ceremony with lots of specialized requests, which they could

happily accommodate.
Eoin, Catherine and the team there were essential to the planning and offered great guidance to us.
During the day itself, they basically ran the show and we could not have asked for it have been better.
It really was special.

From Start to Finish, we had the best experience ever imaginable. When we met Catherine Lewis for the first time out in the Lakeside she sold the Lakeside to us with her lovely, witty personality.

Catherine was very approachable at any time of day and she made us at ease with any special

requests we had for our wedding Day.

All of The Lakeside staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the many times we visited the hotel.

The day before our wedding we dropped out our belongings that were needed for the following day. Catherine and the hotel staff did a super job in arranging everything we had in the most suitable places.

The Food was amazing and our guests are still commenting on how lovely the food was and how big the portions were.

The Hotel is spotlessly clean with gorgeous bedrooms looking out onto the River. The Reception Staff were very helpful to us when allocating rooms to family and friends.

Both Vincent and I would like to Thank the Lakeside Staff for everything they did for us. We both would highly recommend the Lakeside hotel to all newly engaged couples and you will be in safe hands in the hands of Catherine Lewis.

on Thu, 15th of November, 2018
The Lakeside was the first and last wedding venue we visited before booking our wedding day. We were so impressed with the location, the hotel and the staff that we didn't need to look any further.
I can't fault one thing about our entire experience with the Lakeside, they are the most friendly

and professional staff I've ever encountered in a hotel. Guests raved about the food and the setting. Catherine was so friendly and easy to contact, she made planning everything so effortless. I can't recommend the wedding experience at the Lakeside enough.

on Mon, 12th of November, 2018
Our wedding celebration at The Lakeside Hotel went beautifully. All was expertly managed by our very professional wedding co-ordinator Catherine Lewis, from the early pre-planning many months before to managing the events on the night itself. The venue itself is lovely, situated right on the banks

of the Shannon; the premises are good and the dinner was excellent, the various dishes served with prompt panache to all tables – seemingly concurrently – by the attentive waiting staff. The fine and varied menu was evidently prepared by a very good chef and kitchen team. Our sincere thanks go to Catherine and all concerned for making this a smoothly-run and joyous occasion. We could not have chosen better.

I would like to thank you and all the team for an absolutely fantastic day. Your help and support in the build up to the day was a god send to us and allowed us to be relaxed throughout the build up. We could not thank you enough for your help in the last 2 years.

The feedback we have got from

all our guests in the aftermath has been brilliant. The food has been highlighted by all as been exceptional and plentiful, it was very evident that you and your team left no stone unturned in the preparation of the hotel, on the day. We cannot speak highly enough of all the staff also who were brilliant throughout the day. We can honestly say we would not change a thing about the day and the Lakeside exceeded our expectations
on Sat, 3rd of November, 2018
Where do I start. Absolutely fabulous is the only way to describe the Lakeside Hotel and all the staff. From day one meeting Catherine no detail was to trivial no matter what we asked for. Catherine guided us through the whole process we had a civil reception at the hotel. Help was only a phone call

away when we needed it.
On the day itself it was seemless we met the same friendly staff that we had met with at the various different meetings in the run up to the wedding Eoin, Ashlynne, Catherine it really put me at ease. Throughout the day we were asked several times was everything going the way we planned it, it exceeded both my wife and my own expectations.
Super Venue.
Super Food.
Super Staff.
Thank you the Lakeside Hotel.

Our wedding was the 1st of December 17. From the moment we met Catherine & Aisling they could not do enough for us, we literally only had to tell them what we wanted, we didn't lift a finger ourselves they did everything. They exceeded my expectations on the day and I can't thank them enough. The

quality and amount of food and prosecco/wine provided is still being commented on by our guests. There was no shortage of anything. I also want to mention the waiting staff and bar staff that looked after us on the day they were so pleasant and professional. If anyone is thinking about having their wedding in the lakeside DO IT you will not be disappointed! Thanks again guys for making our day perfect, Sharon & Barry x

We chose the Lakeside Hotel for our wedding venue shortly after we got engaged. Catherine Lewis, the weddings and event manager could not have done more for us. Every detail was looked after and she kept in regular touch over the year between booking and the day itself. From the spectacular location

of the hotel, with beautiful views and gardens, to the amazing food, the Lakeside provided a perfect wedding reception. Our wedding meal was unbelievable - incredibly tasty and expertly served. The staff were so pleasant and friendly and our accommodation was extremely comfortable. It was also extremely good value for money. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
on Mon, 15th of October, 2018
We had both our reception and Humanist ceremony at the hotel. From the moment we arrived at the hotel and for the following 4 days, we were treated like royalty. No one at our reception (as we travelled from Cork) had ever been at a wedding or stayed at Lakeside except for immediate family who have

stayed here (and have now been back since). Every guest fell in love with the setting, the hotel, the food. The day/weekend was faultless and we are both so grateful to Catherine Lewis and all the staff for making our wedding so magical. We did not worry about one detail from the moment we booked our wedding as we knew we were in safe hands. I had many guests at the wedding who have worked in leisure around the world and all said the service/food etc was top class. We both feel so lucky to have chosen the Lakeside hotel as we could not have chosen a better venue. We were married outside in the garden which was extra special/beautiful. Catherine and the team made sure the reception room was spot on, it was just beautiful even without us buying any extra wedding bits, they did such a good job there was no need for us to add anything else. Many of our guests have been back to stay at the hotel and are looking to go back, that goes for us too, we cannot wait to head back. The Lakeside hotel will always be very special to both of us and our families. One of our guests turned to my husband the day of the wedding and said, I'd hate to be Pat(who is due to get married) having to follow this day, you could not beat a day/location like this. Since the wedding Pat has been back and looks like he will be having his wedding here also.
Our guests are still raving about the pre-drinks reception and food, the meal and the evening food. You certainly won't find a better venue than the Lakeside. My only wish is that we lived closer to Killaloe as this is one of the best settings/venues you will find.
on Sat, 13th of October, 2018
We had an amazing wedding here!!! The day ran so smoothly from start to finish. Catherine is just the most amazing wedding coordinator, she was great in the run up and on the day, and really went out of her way to help with anything I asked about. The rest of the staff are also lovely and friendly.

Our guests had a fantastic time, they were all so impressed with the food, great quality and lots of it! And the hotel itself is really very impressive.
We had our ceremony in the ballroom and it really was beautiful, the hotel has really made it a beautiful space for a ceremony. We had been hoping to have it outside on the lawn but the weather didn’t allow, in the end though we were delighted with the ballroom, it was really nicely done. We had enough good weather for photos outside in the beautiful gardens and under the trees.
We had looked at so many different ideas for venues in the area, from golf clubs with a marquee to using a local pub! In the end, we were delighted with our choice, it was so easy and comfortable for everyone, totally stress-free, and worked for the whole event. Couldn’t recommend them enough!
on Mon, 1st of October, 2018
We recently got married in the Lakeside hotel Killaloe and I honestly do not know where to start! We were treated like royalty from the first day we went to view the venue. The pre wedding meal tasting was incredible, a night of sheer indulgence! Catherine went above and beyond on the wedding day,

it was like she was able to be everywhere at all times! She was there when we needed absolutely anything. She even got candle wax off one our guests suit trousers!! She went above and beyond her call of duty, we were incredibly impressed. The staff at the lakeside are so skilled, they are experts when it comes to wedding yet they make your wedding so unique and special for you. I am so looking forward to going back to the hotel to celebrate anniversaries and meet the team again! They were so cool, calm and collected and helped us in every way possible which saved us so much, not only money but also stress! They made the entire day stress free, relaxed and lots of fun! Our guests are still raving about the food on the day, it was divine and everyone was stuffed which is always a great sign at a wedding! We are very thankful to Catherine and all the team at the Lakeside for a smooth, relaxed and fun filled day!
on Thu, 27th of September, 2018
We had our wedding reception in the Lakeside earlier this year and would definitely recommend it to any couple. Catherine, the wedding coordinator, was absolutely brilliant to deal with and gave us so much helpful advice throughout the planning process. We had a fabulous day, the food was really

excellent and complimented by all the guests. Picking the menu was so difficult because there were so many good options. The staff on the day were extremely attentive and service was excellent.. The setting is beautiful and the gardens are very well maintained, loads of great photo opportunities. We are so happy to have chosen the Lakeside and wouldn't change a thing.
on Thu, 27th of September, 2018
My wife and I got married in The Lakeside Hotel in Killaloe in April ’18. Deciding which venue we were going to use for our big day was daunting. Our guests were travelling from all over the country and beyond so we wanted a lot from our venue. We wanted somewhere our guests could get good food

Read More

and wine (and lots of it!). We wanted somewhere beautiful and was going to look great whatever the Irish weather. We wanted a venue with plenty of accommodation both in the hotel and close by. We wanted a hotel that understood us and was going to make our day go as smoothly as possible. We wanted a hotel with the bar in the room so everyone would stay dancing and have a great party! And we wanted all of this to not break the bank. We looked at all the hotels in the greater Limerick area and most checked a lot of boxes but the Lakeside checked them all. When we met Catherine and the team at the Lakeside we knew we had found our wedding venue.

We had many many visits to the Lakeside ahead of our day. Catherine met us every time, often outside her work time to accommodate us. We were not easy going – we set a high bar for the day and were very demanding. And every time we asked for something Catherine found a way to make it work.

The food and wine throughout the entire day was absolutely amazing. I’ve been to many weddings but I have never heard so many compliments on the food as much as The Lakeside. Our guests said that every time they took a sip from their glass that the wine kept coming.
The bar was open late. The residence bar much much later. We went to bed after 6am having had the best day of our lives.
The Lakeside has a beautiful location. It has room for any size wedding. The hotel is completely accessible for older guests or guests with disabilities. The food is amazing. The wine is amazing and plentiful. The bar is in the room. The team are friendly and accommodating. The bar opens late. It’s a no brainer.

We had the best day of our lives thanks to The Lakeside.

My wife Claire and I celebrated our wedding reception at The Lakeside Hotel Ballina/Killaloe. We could not possibly praise them any higher if we tried! From the delicious food and the hospitable staff to the beautiful venue and authentic atmosphere, we couldn’t be more thrilled with how our big

day turned out! Catherine and all the staff were so welcoming and they did everything in their power to make our day perfect. Their calm professionalism and organisation meant we were able to relax and enjoy our day. They made us, and our little dog Spud, feel so welcome and we will cherish the memories we made at The Lakeside on July 20th 2018 for many years to come! Thanks for everything.

The Lakeside Hotel was the first hotel we viewed when we started wedding planning. We looked at others after that but quickly returned to the Lakeside to secure our date - we felt, for us, other hotels could not beat the friendliness, homely feel and good value package! Catherine Lewis was our

wedding coordinator at the hotel and nothing was too much to ask. She was always available to help us on the other end of the phone or via email. She was so calm on the day and guided us through everything, always checking if we were ok and were enjoying ourselves. The food was amazing and many guests have commented on it. Ashlynn was very good to us during our tasting meal and allowed us to come back for a second tasting on one particular dish. I eat a gluten free diet (as did other guests) and this was no problem for the hotel; vegans were also catered for throughout. We had a day 2 BBQ and the food was delicious! On the wedding night, the meal service was fantastic and everything seemed to flow time wise - guests commented that there was no lull and they were not left waiting too long at any stage. We would definitely recommend the Lakeside! Looking forward to returning for our first anniversary :)
on Thu, 13th of September, 2018
The Lakeside Hotel, Killaloe, was fantastic to deal with from our first meeting to the big day. The wedding package included everything so there was absolutely nothing we needed to worry about. Catherine and her colleagues looked after everything and really listened to what we wanted. The food is

second to none. Absolutely gorgeous. The only hard thing was to narrow down the wide selection of gorgeous foods and wines. Our wedding guests had high praise for the food and the staff at the Lakeside Hotel.
The grounds of the hotel are right on the lake so the setting is just beautiful. The flowers in the gardens and around the hotel were outstanding.
Chris and I would highly recommend this venue to any couple looking for a hotel that will provide a top notch service that you and your guests will never forget! 10 out of 10.

We both just want to say a massive thank you for providing us with the most amazing, memorable day of our lives. Everything from start to finish was superb. Also the ease of the run up to it and that was all thanks to you as I knew you were there for any query we had.

fell in love with the place and gave glowing reviews with regards the food and the whole thing ran like clockwork. Also a special thanks to Thomas and to the rest of the staff for being so present throughout.

Thanks to you all for meeting me at the door and calming my nerves. It was lovely to see that everyone gets so involved and makes you feel super special.

The day just flew but as soon as we stepped foot into the hotel we knew ye took care of the rest so we could relax and just go with the flow of the day and that’s exactly what we did so we got to enjoy every moment.

We will see you soon as we can’t wait to go back again!!

We had our wedding reception in the lakeside hotel on Friday March 23rd and had the best day of our lives. We could not recommend the lakeside and all the staff highly enough. Catherine the wedding planner made everything so easy from the very first day we walked in up to the last minute. She was

always friendly, organised, efficient and helpful to whatever we asked for. The food in the lakeside was outstanding, we had a big wedding of 250 guests and the standard was superb for everyone. The high standard of food was a talking point of the day, it was so tasty! All the staff were professional, kind and helpful. Service was brilliant throughout the day. We were delighted we chose the lakeside hotel and would highly recommend to anyone to do the same.

I literally cant recommend this hotel enough. From the moment we walked in the door of the Lakeside hotel, we knew this was exactly where we were going to have our wedding reception. Catherine, the wedding coordinator is unbelievable at her job. She is so professional and an absolute pleasure to

deal with.Anything we wanted for our day she made sure it came true. She is so responsive to emails so you knew you were never waiting long for an answer. All the hotel staff are so kind,friendly and willing to make your day perfect in any way. The food is out of this world. All our guests are still talking about the food. The flow from reception to evening meal to the band starting was flawless. The function room is stunning and is so well decorated for a wedding. We got married in the snow storm so we had added stress but this did not have any impact on the running of the hotel. Aisling, the food manager and Catherine were like a counselor's to me the day before the wedding because I was so upset because of the weather. We will never forgot our wonderful wedding at the hotel. I would highly recommend the hotel to any couple. If I could do the day all over again it would be because of the wonderful service we received at the Lakeside Hotel. It will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Aine and Ronan x x

on Wed, 31st of January, 2018
What can we say from start to finish on our whole wedding journey the team at the lakeside were amazing. I planned my wedding from Oz so it was through a million emails that Catherine and the team responded too me with not one been left out. They were so lovely and answered any questions that I had.

Then when we arrived back into Ireland two weeks before the wedding they were so helpful. The wedding tasting was so personal and we felt at ease and came up with the best menu ever. The food is AMAZING. All our guests were so happy with it and that to me is a major part of why this venue was picked, I knew the food had the best reviews around. On our wedding day we were not disappointed it was yummy. The entire team on the wedding day were brilliant. Everything was set up in the ballroom the way I had planned and the girls decorated the place exactly the way I had envisioned!! They truly went above and beyond to make my perfect wedding day a reality. Killaloe itself does the talking, it is such a beautiful part of Ireland and I was so proud to show it of to all my Aussies friends that traveled from Australia. Then once we visited the lakeside hotel, it was without a shadow of a doubt the perfect choice for us. We had no regrets and we only wish we could re-live the day all over again. Thank you so much Catherine and co ye were amazing and I wish you all the best for the future endeavors at the Lakeside x Any couples to be considering the Lake side Hotel - DO IT - THEY ARE AMAZING AND YOU WONT REGRET IT :)

I would highly recommend the Lakeside Hotel for your wedding day. If you're looking for somewhere with delicious food, stunning views of the Lake, organised, friendly & professional staff & competive prices - the Lakeside is your venue.

coordinator Catherine was so wonderful in all her dealings with us, & put us at ease for our big day.
It was all the small things that made it as well, for instance when we came out of the ceremony, our picture was taken & then placed on the menu for our guests as a complete surprise.
The flowers were beautiful & included in the price, so too were rooms for parents of the bride & groom, canapes & seasonal drink at reception for guests & globes on each table - to name a few of the things included in the package.
Our guests really enjoyed the day, with some saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
I'm so happy we chose the Lakeside for our special day

I was married at The Lakeside Hotel in Feb 2017.

After a first inspection of The Lakeside, shown my now wife Nuala I instantly knew and agreed that this should be the location of the most important day of our lives. Nuala from Tipperary always had her eye on the Lakeside due to it's scenic

setting, perfectly nestled against the river Shannon creative beautiful view all around.

As I'm from the UK, everything was new to both my and my family, luckily we had Catherine Lewis who was excellent from start to finish. She led us all through what could have been an overwhelming path, firstly with the much needed negotiations, then onto a wonderful tasting evening followed by the big day itself. Always on hand via email or telephone communication, which was ideal as both Nuala and I live and work in the UK.

The day was fantastic, we were welcomed with drinks on our arrival, food was well organised and presented o a high standard, loved the decor of the entrance, the Lakeside understand the 'finer touches' which make such a special day even more special.
The main wedding room was a perfect layout accounting for live music, a well-stocked bar and head table keeping all guests in the party spirit.

All our our guests from Ireland and overseas (as far out as Canada and the UAE!) spoke very highly of the entire wedding, especially the amazing beef and residents bar after the main proceedings.

All in all a fantastic event loved by all.

We will be returning to The Lakeside in the near future as husband and wife.

Kind Regards

The Lakeside Hotel in Ballina Co.Tipperary couldn't have done enough for us when we got married on the 15th September 2017.
They went above and beyond to make our dream wedding a reality. Catherine the events manager and her team were simply awesome. Nothing was an issue and their professionalism

and attention to detail were second to none.
Catherine in particular deserves a special mention. Whatever I wanted she put into action. She really is simply AMAZING!!
Of course the food is a huge part of the day and I can honestly say people are still talking about the quality of the food. It was perfection personified.
Finally the location is a huge factor....situated on the river Shannon/Lough Derg. Hail, rain or shine it makes for a spectacular venue.
Thank you to the Lakeside Hotel from the bottom of our hearts. We wish we could do it all over again!!

so warm from her Ashlyn and Husain. What can I say about the reception of the wedding boards photo boards etc Catherine immediately put us at our ease and dealt with everything on the day it was perfect. The drinks reception was wonderful the food the drinks kept flowing for the 100 guests very well received by all. The wedding ceremony itself was held in the Shannon Room it was fairy tale the seating the lighting everything, the wedding dinner set up was very elegant and beautiful. The food for the dinner was so good everyone complimented it certain members of my family had special dietary requirements this was again sorted A special mention for Thomas and the silver service it was amazing, my father travels on Cunard several times a year and he had not seen service like this well done 5 Star. I would also like to compliment the Front of desk staff for all their support during and after the Wedding it went like a charm absolutely perfect also for the domestic staff for all their hard work.
In conclusion if you want a 5 Star Wedding then Lakeside is for you

Thankyou Catherine and all the Team

For you especially, thank you for all your help. You made everything so easy and stress free.

And your enthusiasm for weddings finally wore off onto me!!

would recommend them highly for their Wedding Dates Awards nomination for best wedding venue in Clare. I don’t think there is a single other wedding venue in Clare that could come close to the perfection of The Lakeside Hotel. Their ideal location on the Shannon with those amazing views, the exceptional professional yet personal service, the modern finish to the interior of the hotel...not to mention how tasty the food was and the quantity was very generous. All my guests also could not speak more highly of the Hotel and the service they provided. To me they have already won this competition in Clare. I just hope the judges see the same and give them the credit and the award that they deserve. Warmest regards, Mr & Mrs Rooney

Ashlynn, Jen - They are all incredible people and they all make the place what it is - the personal touch and how all of the staff just want to go out of their way to help in anyway they can is what makes this venue so special. They all made everything so stress-free and nothing was too much trouble. We are so delighted we chose it as our venue - We got so many compliments from our guests on how amazing and friendly and helpful all of the staff were, how homely and welcoming the place is, how nothing was too much trouble - Everyone really goes out of their way to assist you in anyway they can. The Lakeside is very well known for their food and my god it is just amazing, even the fussiest of eaters wont be able to complain - All of their dishes are first class and there is so much of everything and everything just tastes so delicious. For anyone looking to choose their venue, The Lakeside won't leave you disappointed - Being from East Clare it was so lovely to have the wedding close to home and show all of our guests what a beautiful part of the world it really is. We have lived in Perth for the last 6 years and it was so lovely to be back on home soil and to show everyone where I call home - We had guests who travelled from all over the world and they all loved the place. It really is such a stunning part of the country - It has everything you could ask for, the most picturesque setting imaginable on Lough Derg, beautiful gardens, great food, wonderful staff, lovely accomodation, great leisure facilities and so much to do if you want to go for a wander down around the village and explore...10/10 from start to finish. Our wedding day was just a dream, they have their own jetty as well and we arrived into our reception by boat which was just brilliant. Day 2 was just fantastic as well - The team put on a fantastic BBQ for us all and we had a lovely trad session looking out over the lake, it was just the bestest weekend from start to finish and I'm sad it's all over. Can't wait to visit again on our next trip home from Perth - Just top class as a wedding venue and we cannot rate it highly enough.

that all our guests loved. We organised our wedding from overseas and found the wedding coordinator, Catherine Lewis, to be phenomenal and extremely accommodating. We also found the staff in general to be highly professional and extremely helpful, especially as a number of our guests were from overseas and didn't speak English. We had a humanist ceremony in the hotel itself, and the Lakeside helped to make the ballroom look awesome! This goes for the reception also: the room looked great, very atmospheric. The food was incredible, not only was it high quality but the portions were also very generous. This was a common consensus amongst all our guests. The bridal suite is gorgeous with incredible views and the room has great vibes! Was a perfect place to get ready the morning of the wedding. Our guests stayed at the hotel anything from 1-6 nights and were happy with the accommodation side of things. Our whole day was perfect, everything we hoped it would be and more! Would recommend having your wedding at the Lakeside in a heartbeat!

told me from day one I would have nothing to worry about and by god she was 100% right. No request was too stupid or silly. Sinead who looks after the accommodation is such a lovely person also. She was brilliant and so “accommodating” with all my changes to rooming lists etc. Everybody commented on how well presented the team are coming out and how professional they are throughout the meal service. Beautiful to watch from the top table when you are taking a brief moment to take it all in  you don’t get too many of them. No sign of waiters and waitresses wandering around a room with plates trying to figure out who is Beef or Hake. Each team came out with the manager, all to the one table and laid down the plates. I can’t remember the F&B’s manager name but she was fantastic organising the tables on the day. She also kept my top table in check for me 
What I really liked about this hotel was the atmosphere and the warmness. It’s a real family feel to it. The General Manager Eoin was also lovely and very supportive. Nothing is a problem at this hotel. To any bride and groom trying to choose a hotel I would highly recommend the Lakeside.

We had our wedding in The Lakeside Hotel in December. From the initial meeting and planning Catherine, SInéad and every other member of staff couldn't have done enough for us. They made our day so special and easy. Most of the bedrooms have been recently renovated and are beautiful and very

comfortable. The food in the bar is delicious and our wedding food was incredible. All our guests have not stopped talking about it! Our friends and family had an incredible weekend and the staff could not have done more to make their stay enjoyable. They were incredibly friendly and helpful over the 3 day stay. Our guests also loved the gym and pool with huge water slide. The hotel is also in a fantastic location, over looking the beautiful Lough Derg. It is within walking distance to Killaloe which is a beautiful town. We could not recommend this hotel highly enough for a wedding, or any other reason to visit.

amazing weekend and our guests had a fantastic time. I have heard from many guests how much they enjoyed the day but also how much they loved the lakeside. From the food to the staff, we were so happy with everything.

Its just so nice to say that everything went so well and this was made possible by you and all the staff, we are so grateful and delighted we picked the lakeside as our wedding venue. I would recommend the lakeside to all my friends.

So once again Catherine a heartfelt thank you, I miss opening my emails to see an email from you and the planning is over, I'd love to do it all again.

fell in love with the place. Everything we ask for we got.Mark had asked one thing from the hotel and that was to have the American flag outside the hotel and he got it.From the first day we went there to see the hotel in 2014 untill our wedding day April 2016 someone was there to answer my questions on phone or email since I was 4000 miles away. Some of our guest who travel from American stayed in the hotel have nothing but good things to say about how helpful the staff were.We spend the whole weekend at the hotel.Our wedding was the Saturday and on Sunday we had a BBQ..On our wedding day everything was perfect.the food was to die for and the staff were amazing.We have nothing bad to say...We cant wait to go back there fro a overnight visit when we come home to Limerick...Wishing everyone there all the best..
