Catherine and the team at the Lakeside team were simply super. Nothing was a problem when we asked before the day. We will remember our wedding day forever. Catherine and her team ensured everything went smoothly. The food on the day was superb. The feedback about the hotel which we have received from our guests since our wedding has been hugely positive.
by Marie & Stephen on Mon, 27th May, 2019
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 ... Read more

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 - particular mention to the food served. Specific praise to Catherine on how well she looked after us on the day - it was the small touches that made the difference. We really appreciated it. The Lakeside Hotel is a venue I couldn't recommend enough for anyone's special day.
by Barry Hammond on Wed, 23rd January, 2019
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.
by Olivia Giltenane on Fri, 11th January, 2019
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 ... Read more

We had our wedding in the Lakeside hotel! Every single thing from start to finish was amazing! Catherine the wedding coordinator was the best from start to finish. She was like working with a friend she eased any nerves or anxieties before the day and on our wedding she made sure everything ran smoothly! The venue is beautiful, garden's fab for pictures! The function room is lovely and the rooms were lovely for guests. This is and will be our favourite place to come and stay in! We had our first year anniversary dinner and stay and we felt just as special as we did for our wedding with surprise champagne and happy anniversary dessert platter for our meal, we ... Read more

The team at the Lakeside were perfect for us. No small detail was overlooked and we didn't have to think of a thing before or during our big day. Their professionalism really stood out and the venue was absolutely beautiful on the day. We're so so happy we chose The Lakeside Hotel for our wedding reception. Huge thanks to the whole team.
by Elaine Molumby on Sat, 17th November, 2018
Catherine is amazing at what she does. We visited many venues and met many coordinators before we met Catherine at The Lakeside. After that evening we had absolutely no worries in relation to our day and venue and knew our guests would be taken care of. She is professional, approachable and very friendly. Nothing was to much of an ask. We felt very confident that everything was in Catherine's capable hands. She did everything that needed to be done and more. I would and have recommended Catherine and The Lakeside to people with confidence.
by Meabh & Joe on Fri, 16th November, 2018
I couldn't recommend the lakeside hotel more! Had an amazing day. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Catherine the wedding planner is brilliant. We also had our ceremony in the hotel and the location for a ceremony is great with lovely views as the guests arrive. The feedback from my guests was all good. The food was delicious! Sinead at the front desk and in charge of the accommodation was very helpful and friendly.
by Tom and Lorraine on Fri, 16th November, 2018
Could not speak more highly of the staff at the Lakeside. They were fantastic from start to finish. The garden provided a great setting for our ceremony and was set up in terrific way.All our guests spoke highly of the location and of the quality of the food. We couldn't have asked for more. It made for a wonderful ocassion for us, our family and friends
by Hannah & Paul on Fri, 16th November, 2018
We would highly recommend the lakeside as a wedding venue. Catherine and the staff were so friendly and helpful, they took away any stress. Guests kept telling us how lovely the food and venue was! It was excellent value for money and we were delighted with the service we received!
by Denise and Aidan on Fri, 16th November, 2018
We had our wedding in the lakeside recently and honestly could not fault the service coming up to the day and on the day itself.The decor was beautiful and our guests are still raving about the food. Would recommend it highly for anybody's wedding.
by Aine and Henry on Fri, 16th November, 2018
If there was an option to give more stars to the lakeside hotel we would!! They went above and beyond for us and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Their food is amazing and their friendly attitude is just the icing on the cake! Catherine, Aisling were brilliant to deal with and made everything so easy and fun for us! We love the lakeside and would do the whole day with them again in a heartbeat!!
by Ciara and Alex Crump on Fri, 16th November, 2018
We had our civil ceremony in the lakeside hotel and it went so well. We only booked the wedding 4 months prior and the hotel were on hand to help us with everything. Sinead in reservations and Catherine were fantastic and made everything run smoothly
by Louise O’Malley on Thu, 15th November, 2018
This hotel was fantastic, the wedding coordinator Catherine couldn’t do enough for us. She was a star on the day making sure everything went off well. Everyone complimented the food. We also got gorgeous photos here for our wedding album! Loved it so much!
by Katrina O'Hannigan on Thu, 15th 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.
by Hilda Moloney on Thu, 15th November, 2018
I married my soul mate, Johnny O'Loughlin, on the 30th June 2018. I would like to thank Catherine Lewis and all the staff of the Lakeside Hotel who helped make it the most fantastic and special day for us. The function room looked amazing. The food was great. Catherine went above and beyond to make the day so special. I would highly recommend the Lakeside Hotel for all occasions.
by Sarah Culhane on Thu, 15th November, 2018
We had the most fantastic day celebrating our wedding at the Lakeside. Catherine and the team were so helpful from day 1. Everything was perfect that day. Catherine made us feel so special. I couldn’t fault anything.
by Roger Marsh on Mon, 12th 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. Roger and Fiona
by Adrian and Sinead on Thu, 8th November, 2018
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 ... Read more
by Jason Lynch on Sat, 3rd 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 ... Read more
by Sharon Hickey Deegan on Thu, 1st November, 2018
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! ... Read more
by James O Brien on Thu, 1st November, 2018
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.
by Veronica MacCarthy on Mon, 15th 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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more

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 ... Read more
by Helen G on Thu, 27th 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.
by Paddy Wall on Thu, 27th 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 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 ... Read more
by Claire Ryan on Thu, 27th September, 2018
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 ... Read more
by Sinead on Sun, 16th September, 2018
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 ... Read more
by Clara & Chris McKnight on Thu, 13th 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 ...

Every one of our guests 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 ...

We had our day last month in the Lakeside hotel. We had a great day from start to finish. The reception area was fab and we got compliments on the sparkling wine reception. The weather was fab and this just enhanced the beautiful setting the hotel is in. Every aspect of our meal was delicious and this was the thing that most impressed our guests. The service was excellent and everything ran like clockwork. Catherine was so easy to deal with and made the whole wedding planning process so easy. Her enthusiasm and professionalism never faltered.

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 ... Read more

I cannot say enough good things about our wedding at the Lakeside Hotel, from the very first time we met Catherine to the day of our wedding. Catherine is so professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. Catherine was sick the day of our wedding and every time I turned around Catherine was there. My guests are still talking about the food at the wedding it's was outstanding. The service in general was second to none. Again I would like to say a massive thanks to all the staff at the Lakeside Hotel. If you book your wedding at the Lakeside you definitely won't be disappointed.
by Keyna and Richard Ford on Wed, 31st 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 ... Read more

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. Our day was so perfect & I cannot fault anything. Our wedding 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 ... Read more

Thanks so much to the lakeside for letting us have our wedding day with them.. could not recommend them enough from the first day we met Catherine, was lovely atmosphere and was more concerned on what we wanted for our day.. to the service on the day was 5* plus more.. made sure everybody was looked after no body waiting around for food.. month later and people still going on how they loved the reception so thanks so much. Liz & Alan cunneen.
by Manny on Fri, 10th November, 2017
We had an absolute great day and the hotel was very patient with us given our short timescale. They were always at hand and supportive throughout the process. More than a few of our friends asked us about having their wedding there as well. I do not give the 5 stars easily but it was a flawless process and venue :-)
by Claire Doyle on Wed, 8th November, 2017
We had our wedding here in June and from the moment we made the wedding enquiry to check out the day after our wedding it was all excellent. Catherine and the team at the Lakeside went out of their way to ensure our satisfaction at every stage of planning all the way through to the smooth running of our day on our big day. The service was top notch and the food was fantastic! Our huge thanks to all, and we wish the Lakeside Hotel every success in the future. Claire & Declan
by David Briscoe on Wed, 8th November, 2017
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 ... Read more

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, ... Read more

by Darcy and Jason on Tue, 7th November, 2017
We really did have such a great day and I'm still hearing from the americans (and the irish guests too) how beautiful they thought the hotel was and how much fun they had. They really enjoyed their time at the lakeside and they couldn't get over the food either. They are all planning on returning as well. Everything was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better venue for our day.
by Linda Guessoum on Sun, 5th November, 2017
Firstly I want to thank Catherine Lewis and her team for the most perfect 5 Star Wedding for our son and his Bride, From the start the support she gave us in the planning of the wedding was excellent no enquiry was too petty for her to answer. We arrived from France 2 days early the reception was 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 ... Read more

I can only say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your amazing work. Both you and the rest of the team were nothing but fantastic and made our day so great. We had an absolute ball, as did everyone else at the wedding and it was definitely partly due to how great you all were and how lovely the food was. We couldnt have asked for more. For you especially, thank you for all your help. You made everything so easy and stress free. I can't understand why anyone would be in a panic over the preparations and perhaps it due to those who are helping and you were such a great help. And your enthusiasm ... Read more

We had our wedding reception here earlier this year, We cant speak highly enough of the The Lakeside Hotel, Its staff, Facilities, River views and gardens, and of course their wedding day coordination Team. Right from the 1st day when we attended their wedding fair we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our big day. Our guests were spoilt by the banquet and meal served and still talk about it!!Catherine and her team were exceptional, She was so helpful,If Catherine was off duty Ashlynn was always in a position to answer any queries. Catherine's attention to detail was impeccable and no request from us big or small fazed her. The meal was exceptional, and it was served with ... Read more

Catherine Lewis & co in the Lakeside Hotel were simply put the perfect, professional and personal service providers for our wedding. They really got involved with the wedding. No task either too big or small for them to make our day extra special. We could not have asked for better service and I 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 ... Read more

Catherine Lewis, the wedding co-ordinator is just absolutely fantastic at her job - We cannot put into words how grateful we are to herself and all of the team at The Lakeside. Catherine, Eoin, 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 ... Read more

We had our wedding at the Lakeside Hotel in June this year. We cannot praise the hotel and staff highly enough, especially Catherine Lewis and Ashlynn Moloney. From the day we booked our wedding, over two years ago, the level of professionalism and service has been impeccable. We had our wedding ceremony in the picturesque gardens over looking the lake. On our big day, Catherine and Ashlynns attention to detail had surpassed our expectations. The food was delicious! We have often eaten at the Lakeside Hotel and every time we enjoy it more than the last. Our guests are still talking about how exceptional the entire day was from start to finish.
by AM &K on Mon, 26th June, 2017
We had our reception in the Lakeside 2 weeks ago and they couldn't have done more for us. The food was top class, all the guests complimented it. Catherine couldn't have done anymore for us and she was always on the phone if we needed her. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. And the location is fab. Thank you all for making our day so special.
by Marian Hogan on Thu, 1st June, 2017
We were just delighted with the wedding reception at the Lakeside on teh day of our weding Sept 2016. Every detail just looked amazing on the day. The fodo was delicious and we had many guest complimenting us on it was one of the best meals at any weddings that they have ever been to. We had a lot of help from the Event organiser Ms Catherine Lewis. Her friendliness and professionalism helped us a lot and took the worry out of everthing and made us feel very relaxed. We would highly recommend the Lakeside as your wedding venue.
by Oonagh on Wed, 17th May, 2017
The Lakeside Hotel is a perfect venue for any wedding. The day that we got married was the only wet day in May 2016, the staff could not do enough for us and our guests. The food was amazing with a number of our guests commenting that it was the nicest food that they have had at a wedding and there certainly was plenty of it. I must say a special Thank you to Catherine Lewis in particular who looked after everything on the day and on the run up to it. Her attention to detail is phenomenal she looks after everything, really genuine person who takes pride in their work. I would not hesitate to recommend the Lakeside Hotel ... Read more

We had our wedding here last Saturday! We had the perfect weekend! The location, staff and food were just fantastic. We wouldn't change a thing! Catherine,the wedding coordinator, couldn't have done more for us. She is absolutely brilliant at her job and ensured every detail we asked for was followed through on on the day. We got very lucky with the weather all weekend so we had the chance to enjoy the garden area and jetty area and a friend was able to bring us to the hotel on his boat! This was so much fun and amazing that the hotel had the facility for this. We also had a bbq the following day and the food and service was ... Read more

We just had our wedding here on Sat 8th of April 2017. From the minute I met Catherine I knew she would go over and beyond to make our day just perfect, and that's exactly what she did. Everything was amazing from the decor, gardens,staff, and food. All 5star!!! Everybody is still talking about the meal and how good the food was, saying it was the best meal they ever had at a wedding. The staff were exceptional all so professional and friendly. Food was piping hot and served at such a high standard. THE table layout I had imagined was exactly what was done. Everything was the way I described. Could not have asked for anything else. Both Catherine ... Read more

We were extremely happy with the Lakeside Hotel for our wedding day in August 2016. The quality of service from Catherine and all the staff was brilliant. The food was fantastic and received a lot of compliments from the guests. As for the setting it was just perfect overlooking the water.

I cannot speak highly enough of the Lakeside hotel and every member of staff we had the pleasure of dealing with in the hotel. Catherine is the definition of professionalism and is a pleasure to deal with. All else I can say is that we had the perfect day and we have the Lakeside hotel and their staff to thank in part for that.

We had the most beautiful and perfect wedding day in this stunning venue... Thanks to the team at the Lakeside Hotel, Killaloe. Catherine, Thomas, Ashlynn, William and Benjamin and the entire team were nothing short of wonderful in every way. Everyone is talking about how wonderful the food and the service was. We are so so happy with our decision to host our wedding here. Catherine was happy to assist in all ways and nothing was ever too much trouble. We have all said that the staff must be trained very well and staff morale must be high because everyone was 100% customer and service orientated. The food was perfect.. piping hot and tasty.... The options available to us food ... Read more

My wife and I visited this beautiful hotel several times over the year and a half and it was so very reassuring to see Catherine Lewis the wedding Co-Ordinator deal with my bride Michelle on all aspects of our wedding. She was excellent in every way and I am so delighted we chose this venue. William in the bar was exceptionally accommodating and pleasant to deal with. Nothing was ever too much trouble for any member of staff. Ashlynn is dedicated to her role as is Thomas committed and energetic in ensuring all needs are met. I cant possibly speak any higher. Michelle had a long list of things she wanted to do and Catherine and her team 100% delivered. ... Read more

We live in Queensland, Australia and opted for a small intimate family destination wedding in Ireland and were first drawn to the Lakeside for it's incredible setting, and also due to their great reputation and value for money. We found the Lakeside Hotel to be an incredible wedding venue and one 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 ... Read more

Firstly myself and Eamonn would like to thank all the staff at the Lakeside Hotel for all their hard work on the day of our wedding. We got married on the 17th of September 2016. The food was absolutely beautiful and everyone loved it. I couldn't recommend this hotel enough, all the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our big day, especially Catherine, Sinead, Meseret and Ashlynn. Sinead sorted out all of the accommodation and was so helpful and friendly. Nothing was a problem to her. We would like to say a special thanks to Catherine who made our day so special and everything we had hoped for. Catherine is so friendly and professional. ... Read more

The Lakeside hotel is everything we expected and hoped for when we celebrated our wedding day there on February 6th 2015. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating to the bride and grooms requests. Nothing was a problem and if we had any questions about requests on where we might find something we had in mind, they always had connections and advice on how to go about it. The venue itself is just stunning and the grounds are breathtakingly beautiful. We loved our Wedding Day at The Lakeside Hotel. The food was tasty, hot and plentiful much to our guests delight. The wine was constantly topped up and the dance floor was always full. The only negative thing we can ... Read more

We had the most amazing day at the Lakeside Hotel. The management and staff are absolutely fantastic. The food was just out of this world. Everyone who attended our wedding spoke about how good the beef was for weeks after. Catherine was just fabulous. She was a fantastic support throughout. She 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 staff and venue were absolutely top notch. The staff could not have been more helpful to us and all our guests. I can't rate them highly enough. Even our guests are still commenting on how well the were looked after at our wedding. The food was out of this world (also which our guests are still talking about). Thanks you so so much for a wonderful day to all the staff at the Lakeside. We couldn't have picked a better venue.
by Shimona Moloney on Sat, 5th November, 2016
I cannot recommend the Lakeside Hotel highly enough- Eoin, Courtney and all the staff, were so friendly and accomodating as well as consummate professionals at all times. On the day everything flowed seamlessly and I knew they had everything under control and we didn't have to worry about anything. The hotel grounds and accommodation are fabulous and the food was simply amazing! Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed their meal and how they lacked for nothing! Our wedding day is still talked about amongst friends especially how beautiful and enjoyable the Lakeside Hotel was! It remains a favourite place of ours- if you would like a memorable day in beautiful and scenic surroundings the Lakeside Hotel is for you!

This is a beautiful place to host a wedding.

We had our wedding here in September and it was amazing. Everything was just perfect. The room for the ceremony looked fabulous as was the room for the reception. Nothing was too much trouble. Any queries we had were answered very quickly and any changes we wanted to make to the menu were catered for. The staff are just so friendly and helpful and helped make our wedding day perfect - thank you so much for everything.

The lakeside hotel has been amazing and the most helpful from the moment of enquiring about booking our wedding. They made our day so special by their attention to detail. They accommodated our every request from the little touches to our entrance by lady viv boat, to our maginificent firework display. The list is endless. The food was amazing. All our guests are still saying how brilliant the day was. The staff are so welcoming and made us feel like we were the only wedding.

I can't speak highly enough of the Lakeside Hotel and the service that was provided to us in the run up to, and on the day of our wedding. The staff at the Hotel were so helpful and made it so easy to plan a wedding when we live 4 hours from the venue. From the reception staff to the event managers they were always friendly, courteous and willing to help with anything. The day of the wedding went so smoothly with no issues or problems.

Thanks so much for everything on our wedding day. We really loved it and ye were just super. Loads of people commented on how great all the staff were and we couldn't agree more.. I was surprised at how many of our guests didn't know the hotel but said they'd definitely be going there for a night away as its close enough to us and the food was perfect. I can't thank you and Aisling enough and we'll be back ourselves for a night away

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 ... Read more

I thought planning my wedding in Limerick Ireland was going to be hard as I live in Boston MA..Was I wrong...From the moment I met Courtney/Catherine, Sinead and staff my worries disappeared. I have always loved the Lakeside since I am from Limerick however when Mark saw the hotel and grounds he 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 ...

We got married on the 13th August 2016. From our very first meeting with Ms. Catherine Lewis, we were treated like royality. Nothing was too much trouble for Catherine and her team (especially Sinead and Ashlin). They were a pleasure to deal with. We had a fabulous day, all our guests made special comment about the hotel, its freindly staff and especially the food which was suberb. I would highly recommend the hotel and esp Catherine and her team to everyone thinking of booking a wedding.
