wedding on Sat, 10th of September, 2022
We’ve managed to talk to nearly everyone who attended the wedding now at this stage
Absolutely everyone was BLOWN AWAY by the food – especially those who had the beef. Everyone who had it was amazed that each and every piece came out perfectly cooked.
The staff on the day were incredibly

helpful, from greeting me at the car when I arrived to recommending when I (the bride) should enter the room to walk up the aisle. I was about to gallop up after the bridesmaid when they said I should let her get half way up so I could have “my moment”. Once the ceremony was finished we were greeted with a glass of prosecco each which was so nice and very much appreciated!
We didn’t even notice the changeover of the room from the ceremony to the reception which just goes to show how professional everyone was and then for the evening portion of the wedding, the food came out so seamlessly it was like it was delivered by ninjas!
When everything was finished & we came back to the hotel to pick up our bits, everything had been packed away for us for collection.
I couldn’t recommend the hotel enough and while it’s a stunning venue it’s the staff that really made it special for us.

We had an absolutely ball but more importantly so did our guests. The food tasting gave us a real insight into the standard. The wine tasting took time as we took this very seriously but Victor helped us out on 3 occasions. Macha was very prompt with responses, Colette was always friendly and both

My husband and I couldn’t recommend Thomas Prior Hall more highly as a wedding venue. Our guests were very complimentary about the quality of food and the service received. We are in full agreement. We loved the location of the building and also it’s architectural beauty. The layout of the

Thomas Prior Hall and the way different areas are run worked perfectly for us. The acoustics were also excellent. We had our ceremony and reception in the hall with our drinks reception in the grandstand courtyard. There are lovely spots to take photos in the garden too. Our guests were also very happy with the hotel rooms in the Clayton Hotel (linked to the hall). The bridal suite was perfect. Our needs were accommodated in every way-be it early check in, Hall access for decoration, cake cutting, wheelchair access, mics... We had a great party and loved every minute.

Our first visit to Clayton Hotel Ballsbridge was July 2018. As we stood outside we knew immediately that this was the place we wanted to get married and have our reception. During our visit we spoke to the wedding coordinator. She was extremely helpful and professional. Upon returning home we set

the date. We returned in April for the tasting and other necessary arrangements were made. Everything went very smoothly as we prepared to get married. We arrived a few days before as did several guests. The reception staff were outstanding and friendly helping us with details. Answering questions. We had on Friday dinner reservations for 18 of us. The food and service was outstanding. On our wedding day Nichole made sure everything was perfect. The Thomas Pyor hall was stunning. We loved the way the cake was displayed. With the lights. Our meal was delicious. The presentation was perfect. No words can express how happy we are with every detail. Thank you for taking care of us. We look forward to our 1 year anniversary at the Clayton.

We didn't originally want to have our wedding in a hotel but with the numbers, we had it would have been tricky to use a restaurant or other venue. Thomas Prior Hall was a great middle way with a lovely, characterful old venue coupled with all the convenience of a hotel. They do everything so you

don't have to worry about much at all. We were looked after really well by Thomas Prior Hall- we couldn't fault them. Nicole was our contact point throughout and was fantastic to deal with. Really efficient and steered us ably through all the decisions that had to be made. We particularly appreciated her advice on stuff like timings and decorations- she was very down to earth and we liked also that she never pushed extras on us- we just felt that she was invested in our day and wanted us to have the best possible time. She was very patient also with our last-minute requests and the height of professionalism.
The food and wine options were good and the hotel allowed us to choose some off-menu dishes to reflect my husband's Polish roots, which was a nice touch. On the night everything went smoothly and we appreciated how the staff kept in touch with us at each stage of the evening to check everything was ok.

wedding on Fri, 31st of August, 2018 where do I start??? We had the most amazing day!! And it could not have been done without the amazing people at Clayton Hotel in Ballsbridge. It all started maybe 8-10months before we were to get married. We chatted with Nicole Berkery who is so lovely to deal with. She was so easy to

communicate with and we felt that she really listened to what we had to say. We met for a gorgeous menu tasting and really made the most of it. We got to taste various wines and got to have a look at what the dishes would look like on the day. The chef (Martin, I think his name was (apologies if I got it wrong)) was professional and came to talk to us about the meal plan. The service was also great during our meal tasting. Patryk served us on that night and he was so friendly!

When it started coming closer to the day we met with Nicole again and we went through the final arrangements. Again she was so professional and so lovely. On the day, everything went so smoothly. There were no hiccups...well none that I was told about:) All the food came out lovely, got great feedback from all the guests. My display tables looked perfect. The venue was gorgeous! Everybody was so delighted! Nicole and my sister also secretly organised a projector for her speech. I was just so so happy about everything! I really couldn't have asked for a better venue. I would highly recommend this place. Myself and my husband had an amazing time and we wouldn't change a thing!

Both Jóhannes and I would like to note that we were very happy with the hotel, the staff and how the wedding event itself was executed. The service was excellent and we are not aware of any guests whose needs were not met. The hotel presented our event and itself to a very high standard, and

Jóhannes and I were very happy. From the reception staff to the waiting staff at the event itself, there was a clear customer service ethic being demonstrated.

Special mention for making sure the support was there until the end of the night should go to Matthew who was completely on the ball, with small touches as bringing cake to guests in the lobby etc. On a different note, the DJ provided by the hotel was brilliant, and definitely a supplier to recommend.

Additionally, we very much appreciate the organisation and attention to detail that Nicole brought to the event planning, and it was certainly in evidence with the smooth running of the event overall.

In particular, please pass on our thanks to Gareth for providing the most delicious meal and also a special mention for Matthieus who oversaw the entire day and was always on hand to ensure that we didn’t have to worry about a thing!

I will definitely recommend Thomas Prior as a wedding venue and please feel free to use the above as a testimonial.

Thanks again for all your help in planning our wedding day. It was a pleasure dealing with you Nicole.

Really deserve positive feedback. I would like to highlight the "Can do attitude" of the team, no request was a problem.
The Management team and Staff handled all requests within their role or coordinated with others. No chasing. We only had to ask once and things were done, making the day and the

run up to it a great and stress free experience.

Gareth took time during the menu sampling to talk to and listen to us. The lamb went down a treat with foreign and local guests full of complimentary comments.

The venue was perfect for the number of guests we had. The seating plan, look and feel of Thomas Prior Hall - a perfect fit. I have and will continue to recommend Nicole and the venue to friends and family.

Fantastic place to have a wedding!

We got married in Dublin in October 2015 and my now husband and I had our wedding reception in the Thomas Prior Hall which is attached to The Clayton Hotel, Ballsbridge. We cannot compliment this place enough! As we both work we had to do a lot of our organizing

over the phone and email. This was absolutely no problem for the staff (in particular Hazel, Barbara and Chris who we prominently dealt with) and they catered to our every need. Thomas Prior Hall is both stunning and elegant and where the drinks reception was held was beautiful with a stunning staircase for photos and extremely comfortable. The staff were very polite, friendly and they could not do enough for us or our guests on the day!. The food was of superb standard and we received nothing but compliments on it on both the day of wedding and since. We had a fantastic day from start to finish. The rooms were lovely and very well kept. We highly recommend this place if your considering having your wedding in Dublin.

The location of Thomas Prior Hall was just perfect for us for starters, but we were just blown away when we saw the hall. It was so grand and beautiful but also intimate. The hall didn’t need lots of decorations and dressing to give it a sense of occasion, the original features of the building

gave it lots of character and charm. When we met Barbara the wedding coordinator we were confident this was the venue for us. She really listened to our ideas about the day and encouraged us to add our own personal touches. The food was delicious and the staff were fantastic!

We have heard nothing but excellent things from everyone on the day. Everyone is raving about the food, the steak in particular and the mash!

Roman- you were brilliant, thanks so much for looking after us all day. You were so patient and accommodating to us, such a friendly face on the day. Thanks for sticking with the video for the best man's speech. We were so happy to be able to hear it in the end. Hope your injury wasn't too bad! You helped make the day run so smoothly.

Stephen- thanks for everything that night. Couldn't believe when I saw you around the hotel the next day too! Do you ever sleep! Thanks for everything. You were so friendly and loved the chats!

Fergal and the bar staff- what a job yous did! Fergal I've heard so many people talking about you and calling you by your 1st name. You definitely made a few friends for life haha. Thanks for being so good! I know you were kept very busy especially with the amount of shots ordered. You must have been worn out, you were great!

Adam- thanks so much for setting up the room. It was great that all of our college friends could sit together in the end. Thanks to everyone who helped put the centre pieces together. You will probably be finding glitter everywhere for a few days

And now finally...Nicole...where do we start. You have been absolutely excellent since the day we met you. Nothing was ever too much to ask. You did such a great job on our wedding. It made everything so easy and stressfree. When we pulled up and saw everyone out enjoying the music, food and drinks on the day we were just so happy with our decision to go with Thomas Prior Hall. You are great at your job and I hope other couples who you are looking after know how lucky they are!!

All in all every single staff member we met was excellent.

We had our wedding reception on 4th June 2016 in Thomas Prior Hall, and we had an absolutely brilliant day from start to finish.
We've lost count of the number of people who have said to us that it was the best wedding they have been to! :-)

the service for dinner and throughout the evening was excellent. Sarah, the co-ordinator, was great helping us organise and finalise all of the details prior to the day. William and Chris - the managers on duty, and all of the waiting staff were both very attentive and helpful throughout the day and the next morning. The food was delicious and I can say that the quality of it didn't change between the tasting we did (thanks to Victor who looked after us so well on that night) and the meal on the wedding day itself - chef Igor did a fantastic job, along with all of his kitchen staff.

Thomas Prior Hall looked amazing, and thankfully, the weather allowed a glorious drinks reception on the grass in front of it. The staff were so helpful and accommodating, the hotel room was perfect with the fruit and prosecco on arrival, and the DJ Graham, was really friendly and played some great tunes. A genuinely perfect day all round :)
Thanks to all the staff involved for your time and effort bringing it all together.

And we are already looking forward to our stay there on our first anniversary! :-)

Just want to say a quick thank you to the guys at Bewleys Ballsbridge for taking care of us on our wedding day on the 20th March.

When we first viewed the Thomas Prior hall we fell in love with the venue but it's actually the staff that make this place. Hazel took care of us on the day & I

Read More

couldn't praise her highly enough! She was so organised, I knew I could relax for the day & we'd be well looked after. We also dealt with Elaine & Barbara along the way & I have to say these ladies are genuinely lovely, so helpful & attentive!

Everyone raved after how well the day went; from the drinks reception to the meal (food was AMAZING) to checking we were ok for everything later in the evening, it was faultless! I work in a hotel myself & know how generic hotel weddings can be but this was far from it; both Keith & myself, as well as all our guests were made feel so special!

We couldn't recommend this place highly enough, from the venue to the food to the service - if you're looking for a place that people will remember & that you can rely on to take care of you from beginning to end, this is the place!

Thanks so much guys, especially Hazel, we can't tell you how much we appreciate it.

Myself and my husband Stephen had our wedding reception in Thomas Prior Hall, Bewleys Hotel Ballsbridge on 31st January 2015. We had first looked at the hall in December 2013. When we went to look at the hall it wasn't even set up for a wedding/function we immediately fell in love with it. With it's

high ceilings, beautiful chandelier's and all wooden features restored it is amazing!

From the moment we looked at the hall right up to the day of our wedding any of the staff we had any dealings with were very helpful, answered my questions in emails or calls very quickly and were very quick to help out with suggestions and ideas we had along the way. I really cannot fault the staff here. Knowing we were dealing with professionals here made my day so much easier and I was able to relax in the knowledge that we were in such good hands.

We had four children at our wedding Thomas Prior Hall staff helped us every step of the way in ensuring that they were catered for, whether it was having high chairs at the table or the children's menu. Instead of leaving favours at the children's seat's we made up goody bags for them and they were left at each of their seats by the staff here.

The food here is unbelievable. Our guests are still talking about the pumpkin and butternut squash soup and the medallions of monkfish! Two of our guests are chefs and could not believe the portions of fish that were given as its such an expensive fish and that it also tasted so good. Huge compliments on the breakfasts provided too and how fresh it was.

If you haven't seen this hall before I would definitely recommend checking it out next time your in the area. It's hard to believe that there is a little gem like this in Dublin City. We dealt with Barbara, Elaine, Caroline and Colm throughout our planning and on the day and I cannot thank them enough for everything that they did. I feel like I know them personally at this stage!

day. The daunting task of making sure that everything went to plan was made so much easier, thanks to them.
Our package included a complimentary tasting of our menu choices and that was fun too. On the day itself, all our guests remarked on how wonderful the food and wine were. The Thomas Prior room itself was beautifully decorated and Elaine made sure that we were looked after wonderfully. The DJ supplied by the hotel was very experienced and kept the dance floor filled for the entire night.
We'd highly recommend having your wedding reception here.

We had our wedding at Thomas Prior Hall in December 2014 and it was amazing!!

All of the staff at the hotel are exceptionally efficient & organised. I always felt like everything was under control. I dealt with a few people from the events team (Barbara, Elaine etc) throughout the months leading

up to our big day & they were so helpful and attentive. All of our guests commented on how nice and gracious all of the hotel staff were during the weekend. On the day itself Barbara seemed to be everywhere at once and we could feel how she had complete control of the event, which for me especially was such a relief as I didn't have to worry about the small stuff and could really enjoy the day. She was with us the night before to go through final checks, seen her again in the morning for some updates, at the ceremony and then the reception. I really liked having a familiar face around as I know a lot of venues just pass an event over to a duty manager but it was great having the person you've been communicating with for months actually there with you on the day to make sure everything goes according to plan.

The venue itself is stunning! The high ceilings, chandeliers & stained glass windows give it a really nice old world feel whilst still being modern. We had our ceremony in the hall & then a drinks reception in the main hotel whilst the room got set up for the reception. This was done so quickly and all the little touches we had requested were executed perfectly.
Everyone told me they thought the hall was beautiful, really unique and didn't feel anything like an average hotel reception room.

All of our guests commented on how good the food was and even though we had already tried it at the tasting, we could not have been more pleased with it on the day. It was really delicious and any little changes we had wanted on the menu were accommodated.

Many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they had been to, even though I'm biased, I'm inclined to believe them!

The wedding is over and just getting back to normal now, so just wanted to give you guys a reveiw and a massive thank you for everything you did fo us.

and organise an Irish wedding from the other side of the pond. Once the decision was made that Ireland was where we wanted to get married (could not have had it any other way) the daunting task of finding a venue that would work with us and look exactly like the pictures they had online began.
I spent hours online, going through venues in Dublin, trying to imagine our wedding day and wondering if the pictures could match the reality, in Thomas Prior Hall we found just that. Thomas Prior Hall was top of my list based on pictures, and it did not disappoint- the venue itself is absolutely beautiful, we had asked our parents to drop in and check it out for us, and Barbara and all the staff at Bewleys were so helpful, not only answering my emails (in record time) but also meeting up with our parents and showing them around and answering any questions they had. Once we booked the venue for the wedding, the helpfulness did not end there, every email/phonecall between us and The events staff instilled confidence in us that we chose right.
Barbara and her staff could not have done more for us in the run up to the wedding and on the day of wedding, and everything we asked for/discussed beforehand was exactly what was delivered. Barbara knows exactly how a wedding should run and does everything to make it that way. The detail herself and everyone else in the hotel went to was above and beyond anything we could have asked for or expected. To anyone considering Thomas Prior hall as a potential venue, I would without doubt, highly recommend it.

Thank you to all the staff at Bewleys for everything they did, from start to finish, I would not change a thing.

We had an unusual set-up for the day (civil partnership ceremony --> afternoon tea --> dinner for family only --> afters) but each idea we brought to the table was made happen, with a minimum of fuss or confusion. On the day itself the hall looked amazing, the food was great, the service went smoothly - what more could you want?

Thanks again to all at Bewleys!

we inched closer to the 'big day'.

My fiance (now husband) and I really wanted pulled pork for our main and the chef did a great job making a dish 'off the main menu' as well as coming up with a beautiful way to plate it. It both looked and tasted superb. In fact, there were tables, I am told, that were loud and chatty before dinner that went silent when the food was served.

The staff both set up and took down all my DIY centrepieces and other decor so all we had to do was drop off and pick up boxes. I didn't have to worry about a thing on the day, they coordinated with the cake people and the DJ equipment set up. They even offered to push back dinner a half an hour so I could enjoy a bit of the cocktail hour (which I happily accepted). Everything went super smoothly and if there was a hitch at all I didn't notice (which is what you want)!

Many thanks to all the staff for making our day so perfect & unforgettable!

much trouble for the Coordinators Elaine and Barbara, both in the lead up to and on the day itself. We were able to customise the plan and put a few personal touches to the event which was all made very easy for us. All of our friends and family were raving about what a cool venue it is and being in Dublin City it definitely offers that something a bit different from the norm. A fabulous day was had by all!

Thomas Prior Hall proved a perfect venue for our 100-person wedding.

I'll assume that anyone reading this already knows the hall itself, so I won't waste words on how beautiful it is, etc.

When choosing a venue, picking a room is the easy bit - you can see the space in daylight, you can

Read More

picture how it will look at night, and so on. It's more difficult to tell from one or two meetings with one or two people how the staff are going to work together to bring all the pieces together on the day - it was in this regard that Tomas Prior Hall and Bewley's really excelled. At no stage of the planning phase did we feel like anything was being overlooked, or rushed, or otherwise troubling. The setup for the service was executed to perfection, and having the hotel facilities available during the change-over was a huge plus. The meal couldn't be faulted, in fact the service from all staff throughout the day was seamless, even to those of us who may have been looking closely for the seams :)

In fact, I'd go so far as to say that our event manager went above and beyond what we expected of her to ensure that no detail was left to chance or overlooked.

It's the sense of professionalism, the human touch on the day itself, that's impossible to predict when touring around from venue to venue. It's something you have to just take a chance on, and you'll never know if your instincts were correct until it's all done. In the case of Thomas Prior Hall, in our experience, you can take this as a given.

I couldn’t praise Thomas Prior Hall highly enough. I was bridesmaid for my sister and had lots of jobs and so had a good bit of interaction with the venue and hotel. Barbara, the wedding co-ordinator was very obliging and a joy to deal with, each and very time I called her. The venue itself is

stunning but was made even more special by the incredibly friendly and very professional staff. The food was superb. There were a few fussy eaters and even they said they cleared the plate of food as it was so good. Lots of weddings are held at Thomas Prior Hall and I had fears that it might be a conveyor belt but I can safely say that the day felt very unique. A gorgeous setting with lovely grounds.

Thank you for the organization on the day. It was so discrete and full of attention.

He was really excellent!

Thank you Carene for bearing with us, our mixed cultures, numerous requests and all the other participants (photograph, baby sitter, musicians...)

The service we have received exceeds our expectations, and we are so happy that we chose you for the reception venue, because we feel it really contributed to the success of this happy day.

It has been a pleasure working with you all!

Merci beaucoup!

On the day, the personal attention, not only to myself and Davi, but to our Family & Guests was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and everybody was catered for in any way possible.

If I could rate the Team and the Venue more than 5 stars I would.

I would like to thank the Team for their amazing advice, help, courteousness and professionalism. It will be a day that remains in our hearts for the rest of our lives.

The organisation for the wedding is made very easy at Bewleys with the wedding packages.

In the run up to the wedding, phone calls and emails were dealt with quickly and easily. Changes were no problem.

On the day everything went very smoothly, we had agreed a time plan in advance and it moved along perfectly. The staff were very professional, efficient and calmly looked after us all very well. .Our guests were overwhelmed by the whole wedding and have been raving about it since.

She was always easy to contact which it so important to keep stress levels down! I was never left waiting for a phone call to be returned, every email was answered within hours and she was brilliant when asked for advice or guidance on every aspect of the reception.

I also have to give a mention to James the Hotel Manager; he was brilliant both on the day and the day after! He was so attentive and was very eager to ensure everything had gone the way we had wanted. We also had him lugging boxes to the car the following day and it was done with the biggest of smiles!

One thing that stands out in my mind was that I had decided to do my own table centres which I had fully intended to do myself the evening before the wedding but Barbara said it was no trouble for the hotel to do it. I thought this was so kind as time is precious the night before! When I walked into the room on the day they had been set up beautifully, I couldn't have done them as nice!

The staff in the hotel also need a mention,all our guests commented how friendly and polite they were. I have never experienced service like it.

Lastly and most importantly the food was absolutely beautiful! The standard was so high, and no table was left waiting very long despite the number of people in attendance. I recommend the apple & berry crumble, it is seriously the best I have ever had! Also,all special requirements were catered for and our guests are still raving about the food!

The day was everything we wished for and more! Thank you to all at Thomas Prior Hall!

We had a wedding evening reception at Thomas Prior Hall in February 2013 and our guests couldn't be more happy with the staff, food and overall atmosphere. Our event managers Barbara and Robert were very helpful and a real pleasure to deal with. All our guests commented on the food and attentiveness

of staff. All our wishes were catered for and everything went as planned. We had the best time! I would definitely recommend this venue to any couple planning their wedding/party in Dublin. We and our guests had wonderful time. We were very happy we spent our monies there!

Thomas Prior Hall was the perfect venue for our Civil Partnership ceremony, dinner and party on 6th April 2013, in fact it was the only venue we seriously considered. After checking various venues online we met with Barbara and viewed the Hall. We knew immediately that the Hall was perfect for our

needs, the location ideal, and Barbara was someone we could work with.
As the time got closer Barbara co-ordinated and guided us in all that we needed to do. She made the whole thing remarkably simple and was a pleasure to deal with.
On the day the room was amazing for the ceremony, with 140 guests, then was turned around in 90 minutes to a full dining set-up. The meal was excellent, the service was exceptional and the staff did a great job, under the expert guidance of Barbara and James. In the evening we had at least another 100 guests which the hall absorbed comfortably, and there was also plenty of room outside for people to cool down and have a rest. We had a very full dance floor all night, entertained by A Few Good Men band and the incomparable Lady Diamond. We would highly recommend Thomas Prior Hall to anyone looking for a Dublin location for a wedding or civil ceremony.

amazing people are still commenting on how nice it was .

I would have been lost without barbara she looked after every single detail , she sorted out things when there was little hipcups without me even knowing she was amazing and kept me calm.

If i were to do this all over again i would still go with this venue they were all so helpful and a great day and night was had by all . I have passed this venue so many time thinking it would be too expensive but it caters to all buggets so give it a shot.

Thanks again for all your help

We loved Thomas Prior Hall from the moment we viewed it. The old style feel with the wooden walls and roof and those amazing chandeliers. If you are looking for something a bit more wow than your normal hotel reception room this is a great place with so much character. We had a number of requests

for things to be done just as we wanted and nothing was too much trouble for the staff to accommodate. Barbara and Elaine have great patience and were so quick at getting back to us with what must have seen to be an endless amount of emails with queries, requests and advice. We had a lovely evening having our menu tasting before the wedding and it was hard to narrow down choices for the day with everything so good but I think we picked right as we got great reviews from even our real foodie guests that are hard to please. We had decided only to get pictures taken at the church and hotel and with the rain on the day it was just as well but looking at our photos we could not have done better, the hotel has great places for taking pictures indoors between the main hotel and Thomas Prior Hall with its balcony, chandeliers, wooden staircase and stained glass windows and lucky for us the rain stopped long enough to get outside to the grounds as these are fabulous too. Everything was just perfect on the day, from our requests for the reception room layout, the plentiful food and bubbles on arrival to the dinner served around our speeches but still piping hot, it was a magical day and I would love to be doing it all again!

From the first contact we had with Barbara & Elaine in Thomas Prior Hall we knew we'd made the right choice of venue. The room has the WOW factor and everyone we dealt with made our day relaxed and special. We had our ceremony in Thomas Prior and our guests did a double take as they walked into room

as most of them didn't know such a gem existed. We then had an intimate dinner in the Merrion Room before heading back into Thomas Prior for a party.

We got married on 2nd November in Las Vegas but wanted to throw a cocktail reception on our return to Dublin. After looking at many venue's we decided on the Thomas Prior Hall in Ballsbridge. The room itself was spectacular, and we fell in love with it at first sight. We wanted a specific style of

event, having both worked in Hotel & Catering for many years- and found that the hotel was only only too happy to work around the style of event that we wanted. The chef's worked with us to design a special "mini supper" cocktail menu, and Barbara was exceptional at working with us to design the ambiance & look we sought. The whole experiance was wonderful, and our wedding reception at the Thomas Prior Hall is still talked about among our friends/family and work colleagues.

We would both like to thank Barbara and all the staff at Bewley's and Thomas Prior Hall. I cannot give enough praise to everyone there and all they did for us on the day. The things most commented on by our guests were the amazing room and how no one ever realised it was there right in the heart

of Dublin, the amazing food and the staff - they were great, all the guests were saying how they could not do enough for them. We would personally like to thank you all and Barbara I cannot thank her enough, above and beyond was invented for her, we did not worry about a single thing on the day as she ensured that she knew everything we hoped for and just took care of it all. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day better than we even imagined. Sinead & Jamie 02/06/2012

We cannot praise the team at Thomas Prior enough in terms of their responsiveness, helpfulness and general all round positivity throughout. We were planning our ceremony from the UK which brings added challenges and both Barbara and Elaine always instilled confidence that everything was sorted (and

it was!). On the day itself neither of us had to worry about anything as every last detail was in place and sorted throughout the day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, a church was not going to be possible for us but this was such a fantastic venue we never saw it as a compromise and indeed the beauty and verstaility of the hall gave us the absolute best of both worlds. All of our guests commented on how great the food was and we had many with different diets to accommodate, some more challenging then others and everyone felt that it was made specially for them which is a particular achievement when serving over 170 people in one go. The service was spot on, friendly and unobtrusive, working like clockwork, very, very efficient. Thank you for a wonderful day which we will be forever grateful.

We found that Thomas Prior Hall is the perfect venue for a wedding civil ceremony, drinks and dinner afterwards. The staff were incredibly helpful, they looked after everything on the day so we didn't have to worry and were free to enjoy the day. The central location of the hotel made it easy for

The DJ we got was fantastic and he kept the dance floor full all night. Everyone had such as great time we can't be thankful enough to the staff at Thomas Prior Hall.

Our day in the Thomas Prior Hall was amazing, it was the best day of our lives so far, and it was all made very easy by the welcoming management and staff of Bewleys Hotel Ballsbridge. We not only had a wedding day in the hotel, we made a bank holiday wedding weekend out of it. The ambience of the

hotel and the prior Hall were amazing, offering a wonderful back drop to our special day. There is a lot to be said for having your Civil Partnership and your reception all under the one roof. We had 160 guests and the Prior Hall was transformed from a ceremony room to a banqueting hall in just one hour. Nothing was a problem for Barbara and Elaine who looked after us like royalty form the outset of our planning. The food was beautiful and plenty of it and the drinks were flowing. The wedding suit was very well appointed and there was great attention to detail on everything we asked for. I can only speak very highly about this venue, and can only describe the staff and management as a team of excellence. Thank you for everything : Aiden & Michael Saturday 5th day of 2012.

addition we could not believe we had found an affordable venue in the heart of Dublin. There were 120 guests at our wedding and the hall neither felt overcrowded or empty; the tables were dressed in a most elegant manner with lovely centre pieces with Barbara and her team looked after everyone with professionalism and an easy manner. It was both relaxing and enjoyable working with Barbara and we were confident from our first meeting that she would ensure we had the manner of wedding we wished for. Clive & Sarah-Jane Johnson
