Hi, I am getting married in Finnstown this year.. I am very upset about the reports in the media recently and also last year. I don't know whether to cut my losses or hope it will be ok on the day. Anyone else in the same boat as me? O:|

I'm in the same boat! Wedding in June, I am concerned about the past incidents, but at this stage I have to stick with it.

My wedding is in May and I am looking elsewhere at the moment which isn't ideal (very stressful). I am really unhappy with a good few things. Have you spoken to them?

No I haven't spoke to them. My h2b doesn't think there is any point. Do you think you will be able to get an alternative venue?

Hi everyone, really sorry you are having these problems at this stage . . .My best friend is thinking of booking here for 2016. We were only talking about it on Friday night! What kind of problems are you having? I would hate her to get stung. . . thanks

It got some bad press last week and an incident also last year

@mofl1976 No we haven't spoken to them yet but we will be speaking to them. Just want to see what our options are first. There are a lot of wedding fairs on today so it's going to be busy! We are just not comfortable with everything that has happened the past year. @bridgie32 I don't really want to get into it on an open forum, but search Finnstown house news on google. There has also been a lot of communication issues. Just very disappointing and we are very upset as it's an absolutely beautiful hotel.

We are stayin here the day after the wedding as our venue is private , my bro in law only told me about what happened i think it's in the paper , I don't know I prob would be stressed if I was getting married here but maybe it'll be ok it's meant to be a lovely hotel other than that I know a few people who stayed here

I'm sure security has been increased since the bomb scare. I don't think news of the recent searches made it outside the tabloid press. The gardai said the events weren't linked. I wouldn't stress about it.
