How can we thank you and all the staff at the hotel enough. Every single staff member was so helpful ,kind and made every one feel as though they were your only customer . You made everything so stress free and organized. Mick arrived on without warning and a room was made available to help him right away. The food was unbelievable , the rooms were comfortable. The honeymoon suite was set up so romantic and made me personally feel like an absolute princess. All of our guests had only good things to say . Thank you for making our perfect day truly perfect?? Mr & Mrs Maher

We had our wedding at the Bridge House Hotel September 21st 2019. I really cannot recommend them enough. The packages have absolutely everything and at a very good price but at a very high standard. Noel was our driver for the day and was amazing from when he collected us right through the whole day and into the night. He was like our own wedding planner, he made sure everything flowed right for us. Mario the manager was so professional straight from when we met him at arrivals. He constantly made sure every table was looked after and and he personally did this himself. The staff were also so efficient and extremely friendly. I cannot thank the Bridge House Hotel enough for playing a major part of what was the best day of our lives.

From the moment we booked our wedding at the Bridge House Hotel we were looked after amazing and treated so well.. with the lead up to our big day everyone was hands on and making sure we were all set. Finally when the big day arrived everything was amazing and set up perfect and Dawn was hands on ready to help with any issues(there was none to be fair) Not only was the service from the staff amazing the food was delicious and every guest commented on the desert table and couldn't believe the set up. From the very beginning to the minute we left the hotel we were treated brilliantly. We would recommend the Bridge House to everyone and we will be returning for visits. Thanks so much to all the staff in The Bridge House Hotel and special Thanks to Mario and Dawn.

The bridge house is a fabulous location for a wedding reception. The staff are friendly and the food is gorgeous. The ball room was just magical. All of ours guests had a brillant day and we are so happy we choose the bridge house as our venue. A special thank you to Noel. He went above and beyond to accomodate us on the day and made sure everything ran smoothly for us.
Response from Bridge House Hotel

Thanks again, Dawn & All the Team
Review by
The Bridge House were fantastic to deal with from Day 1. They made the planning process a lot easier for us by always being on hand to answer any question we had. There is so much included with the Bridge House packages that are unique to them and not included in other hotel packages e.g complimentary wedding car, love sign, fairy light backdrop and their amazing buffet of desserts. Dawn was so helpful in the final weeks of our wedding preparations, nothing was a problem and she took a lot of stress out of the planning for us. Noel was fantastic from the very start. He always found a way to accommodate our requests and his "we'll work out something for ye" approach to everything meant so much to us. On the day of the wedding, Noel was like the extra bridesmaid/groomsman, from fixing my veil when I got in and out of the car, to giving us his phone to take a selfie. He is some man for one man! From the moment we made our entrance to the hotel, we could feel the electric atmosphere. Piper, champagne, vintage arrivals reception, it was all amazing. The food was outstanding, thanks to the fantastic head chef Tony. He went above and beyond to make little changes to the menu for us and it meant so much, a true professional. Conor (night porter), organised for us to go up to the DJ box in the palace nightclub and have a dance with Jenny Greene. That was one of the highlights of the night, so thanks Conor. Overall, we enjoyed every second of the day and we are so thankful to all the staff at the bridge house for making our day so enjoyable and memorable. Thank you, Laura and Kieran xx
Response from Bridge House Hotel
Wow Laura thank-you so much for such an amazing, detailed review I hope married life is treating you both well! Our team were only happy to be of help from the lead-up to the big day itself! We were delighted we could arrange for you both to meet Jenny Greene and pleased to hear it went down such a treat! On behalf of everyone here at the hotel we would like to thank you and Kieran for choosing the Bridge House Hotel and we wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!

We had our wedding in the Bridge House on 19th July and they were absolutely amazing. So helpful not only on the day but the year running up to it, anything I needed or any questions I had they were always so helpful. Special thanks to Noel who worked so hard to make our day perfect and keep us calm. The food was delicious and the ballroom is stunning. The guests get a wonderful reception on arrival and are very well looked after. We are so glad we chose the Bridge House.

Beautiful venue, excellent service, very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful atmosphere in the hotel no matter when you go in. Great food and lots of it. Arrivals reception is brilliant as is the buffet of deserts and afters food. There is no other hotel around that does a wedding like the Bridge House.

Thank-you both for such a wonderful review! Your wedding was certainly one to remember! we would love if you send over any pictures you may have from the big day! Congratulations again from all here at the hotel, we look forward to seeing yourself and Gerard soon!
Review by
Fantastic hotel and amazing food & hospitality. Great communication in the beginning but wasn’t as great towards the end, in terms of conflicting emails regarding rooms guests had booked etc. Nothing major, just noticed the difference a little. Roadworks outside the hotel and building work within the hotel never told about until we arrived from England. But in all fairness it was very little disruption. Lovely friendly professional staff and could not do enough for you. Can’t wait to go back. Claire Connell

We got married in the Bridge House Hotel this year April 5th. What can I say the most amazing day of our life's. We couldn't fault anything about the Bridge House in anyway from start to Finish. I dealt with Barry, Dawn, Aine, Antonia and Noel they couldn't do enough for us. The Food was beautiful, people are still talking about the evening food from pizzas to Tayto sambos, snack boxes and so much more!! If you haven't got your Venue booked you need to go check out the Bridge House hotel. "you will not be disappointed"
Response from Bridge House Hotel
Thank-you for such a lovely review! I hope you are both settling into married life well!

We look forward to welcoming you both back soon!

This has to be one of the superior wedding venues in the midlands. The Hotel prides itself on customer service, after holding our wedding reception there in January I would totally agree with them. The Staff from front line right down to the domestic staff went our of their way to make our day the best ever. The food was out of this world. We would totally recommend this hotel for a wedding venue but also for a weekend away or even a good night out.

Antonia, I wanted to thank you and the staff of the hotel for all the hard work and effort that went into making our day so magical. Nothing was to much of a request, you guys went above and beyond.

We cant possibly put into words how fantastic our wedding day was in the Bridge House Hotel. From the day of booking our wedding, we were treated like royalty! As were our guests and suppliers on the day! Service and food was excellent and the afters reception was a big, big hit! Our guests were well impressed and they are still saying it was the best day ever which was all down to the Bridge House. Antiona, Noel, Barry, Aine & all the staff in the BH you gave us a day we will remember for the rest of our lives, thank you ! Love Sinead & Ciaran Kelly x

Myself and my husband Michael got married in the bridge house on the 21st of sept 18. From start to finish everything went so smoothly. Any questions I had there was never any issues Antonia was on hand to answer them for us. We got married the week of storm Ali and the ploughing was extended an extra day so it fell on our wedding day and we were so panicked when we heard this but we arrived in the hotel 2 days before the wedding and met with Barry and he put us to ease straight away and he had even rang the local garda station to organise a garda escort for us we coudlnt believe it. The food was beautiful from the arrival food to the dinner and the residences bar and there was lots of it. We had the dessert buffet and everyone was blow away by it. Everyone of our guests commented on how beautiful the food was and how relaxed the atmosphere was and this was down to the excellent and professional service. I could not recommend the bridge house enough.

Wow! Where do I start! We had our special day in the Bridge House Hotel on the 15th Sept 18. We originally planned to get married in Spain, we had flights to meet the wedding coordinator but my husband asked me to look at just one hotel before we made our choice. We met with Antonia in the Bridge House to discuss the wedding Dec 17. As soon as we arrived at the hotel I got such a nice comfortable feeling. Antonia went through the packages available and I couldn't believe the value of the packages on offer. Within a couple of hours in the hotel myself and himself decided this is where we wanted to get married and it was the best decision we made. Antonia was brilliant throughout the entire planning process. She made everything so easy for us, nothing was ever an issue and was always there whenever I needed her help. Our whole experience from start to finish was amazing. The taster was beautiful, the restaurant staff were so helpful, they advised us on our choices and chef Tony came and met with us to go through everything on the menu which was a lovely touch. Geraldine and all the reception staff where so helpful throughout our planning with booking and changing rooms around to accommodate our guests. The Hotel looked so beautiful the day of our wedding. The arrangement on arrival for our guests was breath taking. We had our reception in the Charleville Suite. The room was beautifully laid out. The food was out of this world, the waiting staff were brilliant, everything ran smoothly. The dessert table was definitely one of our highlights, it was like nothing we had every seen before, it was so beautiful and so delicious. The whole day was fabulous from start to finish and Noel had a big part to play in this. He arrived in Dublin to drive myself and my father to the church and myself and husband back to the hotel. He was by our side for the day to ensure everything ran smoothly. Noel was all we expected from him and so much more. Noel took so much pride in making our day so special. I've had so many calls, texts and messages from guests over the past couple of weeks telling me it was the best wedding they have every attended and I can't thank the Bridge House Hotel and all their hard working staff for making my day so special.

The Bridge House was an absolutely amazing venue for our wedding. The staff are outstanding!! We felt completely at ease both on the wedding day and during the months before that everything was well managed and under control. Our main concern was that all of our guests were looked after. Since the wedding we have had comments from several of our guests saying that the staff went above and beyond to help the guests with anything they needed, any food intolerances etc. Antonia, Stella and Noel were all fantastic on the day and with planning the day.

Myself and my husband cannot recommend this hotel enough. We had our wedding reception there on the 16th of June and it truelly was one of the best days of our lives. Antonia, Stella and all the staff were amazing on the day and the months leading up to it. Very professional but also personal. There was nothing that couldn't be done for us everything was a Yes!  The ball room was stunning as was the vintage arrival and as for the bagpipes on arrival well I'm still getting emotional thinking about it. If you are recently engaged and looking in the Midlands area this hotel is perfect.  Thanks again for making our special day even more special. Katie & Stephen Kirwan x

Thank you Katie & Stephen for such a gorgeous review. We are over the moon for you both and so delighted you chose us as your wedding venue. It was our pleasure, and we wish you every happiness in your married life. Thank you and massive congratulations again. Take care, Antonia

As we had never attended a Wedding in the Bridge House Hotel, we attended a Wedding Fair in December 2016 and met Stella. From our meeting with Stella, we knew this was the hotel for us. In the run-up to the big day, we dealt mostly with Antonia who was brilliant dealing with any queries we had. On the day itself, the Bridge House proved itself to be the most amazing venue. The food, decor and service exceeded all our expectations. A very special thank you to Noel, Stella, Antonia, Danny and all the staff for the professionalism, kindness and experience that both our guests and ourselves experienced. We had the best day of our lives and would highly recommend the Bridge House hotel as a Wedding venue.
Response from Bridge House Hotel
Mr & Mrs Jones - thank you! What a recommendation, we are so pleased it was the best day of your lives, you deserved every second of it. It was our pleasure from start to finish and we can't thank you enough for choosing the Bridge House Hotel as your wedding venue.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help leading up to our wedding. We can not thank Antonia, Noel, Stella and all the staff at the hotel enough. You all went above and beyond to make our day so special,there wasn't one of our guests who didn't comment on how well the staff treated everyone or how amazing the food was (people are craving the black pudding parcel) you made our day everything we wanted it to be and more! The Bridge House Hotel has become our favourite place to be over the past two years and we are already planning a trip back down. You guys should be so proud of yourselves for all the amazing work you do. From the bottom of my heart Thank You all so much for giving myself,Declan and our family and friends the best weekend of our lives.

We got married back in April in the Bridge House Hotel Tullamore and what can I say they really played a blinder so much so that we'd love to do it all over again.. There is nowhere I would more highly recommend than this hotel.. The management and staff could not do enough for us. Just a fab day from start to finish. Thanks guys so much we never had to worry or stress once in ye're capable hands. The ballroom was fab, the food was so delicious especially the awesome dessert buffet that people have not stopped commenting about. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. They really couldn't do enough for us all. They catered for 200 of our guests and they were all so happy and amazed with the service they received. Thank you again it was definitely a day to remember for all involved!!! If anyone is thinking of booking a hotel in the midlands for their wedding there really is no other choice than the Bridge House Hotel in Tullamore. And also my sister is getting married June 2019 and shes having reception here also cause she saw how good it was for our wedding.

The Bridge House Hotel staff were beyond phenomenal from the very start to the very end. The prices were extremely fair for what we received, and the food was delicious - our guests are still talking about it months later. The Charleville Suite was the perfect room for the reception, and the bar staff were brilliant. Any questions we had leading up to the day were answered swiftly by Antonia and Stella, and Noel was a flurry of helpful activity on the day. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning on getting married, both for the amazing food and staff, and for the beautiful setting of the hotel for pictures.
Response from Bridge House Hotel
Oh Susan & Graham thank you! What a fab review, we are so happy you are both happy. If you have any of your wedding photography back we'd love to share it with your feedback? Thank you for your recommendation, and congratulations again from us all.

We got married here a month ago and being an older couple we were looking for perfection......and thats exactly what we got...Antonia,Stella and Noel went way beyond all expectations...they just couldn't have done any more to make our day the most special day ever. The food was amazing and all the little extras have my guests still raving about the day. They are %100 the best hotel ever to host your wedding. Absolutely loved every minute.

From the very beginning, Noel, our wedding coordinator put us at ease in terms of what services/extras the hotel were able to provide. There was never a difficulty with any of our inquiries. I don't think the word 'no' was mentioned once and Noel was very accommodating and humorous in his dealings with both my now husband and myself and my family, who helped me so much in the organising of our wedding. There were so many little extra touches which were included by the hotel, that normally the bridal party would have to source from elsewhere, such as table plan board, centre pieces, candles etc. The main piece of advice I would give to any couple is to block book as many rooms as you think may be needed and coordinate this carefully with the hotel.Be prepared for unexpected absentees. Life happens is my motto, be prepared for unforeseen circumstances.

It's just coming up to our First anniversary and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Bridge House for what was a wonderful day with plenty of great memories. We had both our ceremony and reception here. From start to finish we were looked after so well, drinks reception, reception meal, evening food etc. but all this just doesn't happen without a great team. We were graced on the day with Noel and Stella looking after us, they were both amazing making us feel so relaxed and putting in that extra effort to make our special day even more special. A special word to Tony the head chef and all the catering team for serving us a really delicious meal. The Bridge House is just so amazing for weddings.
Response from Bridge House Hotel
Oh thank you Margaret, it was our pleasure, massive congratulations from us all - what a quick year. If you would like to share any of your wedding photography with us, please do! Thanks again, and enjoy your anniversary celebrations.

We chose the Bridge House Hotel to have our wedding reception. We were at complete ease when dealing with any of their team as they were very professional, friendly, offered very practical advice & most importantly we felt we could pick up the phone or drop an email to them & they were very prompt in replying. Noel, Stella, Barry, Antonia & all the staff were fantastic in making our day?. The food was plentiful & amazing from start to finish and the bar service was excellent. From our experience, we would highly recommend the Bridge House Hotel to any other couple

Myself and my now husband had our wedding here last month and we are so happy we chose the bridge house to look after our special day! From meeting Antonia at the start of our wedding planning we knew we were dealing with a very professional and extremely helpful wedding planner. On the day all our guests and ourselves were looked after so well, the food was outstanding which was very important to us. The charleville suite is a gorgeous reception room for any wedding, we couldn’t fault the decor with extra bits and bobs added in on the day to add to the look of the room. Overall we can’t recommend the bridge house enough for weddings, we were looked after like royalty by Noel, Antonia, Stella and all the other staff!

Where do I start. Thank you Bridge Hotel, thank you, thank you, thank yooou for hosting our wrestling themed wedding !!! Your venue such a magical and wonderful place, where dreams really do come true. You made our wrestling theme come to life, and yet the setting in the hotel was so romantic. We couldn't of done it without your wonderful staff. Antonia is pure credit to your family, she was so relax and calm which made us relax and enjoy the wedding planning process. Stella and Noel on the day where amazing. They both are two profs and everything went so smoothly. Geraldine, your booking staff is a doll and she helped me out when things got stressful. Thanks to all your other hotel staff, nothing was to much trouble and everything went flawlessly with them. The food was AMAZING! HATS OF TO THE CHEF Tony & kitchen staff, for his wonderful display. The food was to die for and so much of it! I'm sure your sick of my face by now, but thank you for assisting me on my every need. The hotel and its facilities is amazing. My family and friends are still raving on how amazing the bridge is and how friendly your staff is. Thank you for having us and cant wait for my 1 year anniversary spent with you. Your hotel remains a really special place in my heart. Thank you again. Jennifer & Mick Elliott

The Bridge House Hotel exceeded in every way for our wedding, from the very beginning they helped us throughout our wedding from the price to the lighting to the centre pieces on the table to the seat covers and sashes, Stella, Noel and Antonia couldn't do enough for us, they are fantastic at their jobs and gave us the reassurance that everything would fall into place on the day, I will be honest I was so anxious the morning of the wedding and Noel collected me and my father in the wedding car at my house and he definitely helped reassure me that everything was fine, the Bridge House Hotel put on spectacular food for the guests at the reception while me and my husband were having out photographs done and when we arrived back we were greeted by the staff and the wedding coordinator Stella, she handed me and my husband a glass of champagne and the bagpiper played us in to the grand entrance of all our family and friends, the staff in the Bridge House Hotel were phenomenal on the day catering for everyone's needs, I genuinely couldn't recommend them enough to anyone thinking of getting married in the future they helped us make our wedding day so special and we are so grateful to them for helping us to organise our wedding as we couldn't have done it without them. It was a fantastic day the best day of our entire lives.

This hotel and the team are simply amazing. Both myself and Daniel could not have wished for a more fantastic day. Every detail possible was taken care of, from the food(my god the food was out of this world) to the champagne arrival, the decor of our ballroom and the overall service was just amazing. All our guest were raving about it. Stella and the team she had behind her made our day completely magical... It was beyond a 5* rating

We had our wedding at the Bridge House Hotel on the 10th August and the entire experience was out of this world. I'm sorry to say my review is a lengthy one, but there was just so many details and brilliances to mention in a short review. I am from Tullamore, my husband is from Essex and we were lucky to have over 40 guests travel over to join us on our wedding day. God must have been looking down on us as the weather was beautiful throughout our entire stay. The Bridge House went above and beyond to make sure all our guests received an amazing Irish welcome when they arrived. Some had dinner in the hotels' Italian restaurant and they said it was the best meal they have ever had...until the actual wedding meal was served that is!!! Noel McCann provided the entertainment in the car as he drove me and my dad to our wedding ceremony in the hotel. He is just the best character and eased my nerves before I walked up the aisle. I had both ceremony and reception in the Millennium Room and I was blown away by how beautiful it looked. I cried so many happy tears throughout the day, my sister had to be perched permanently beside me to fix my mascara!! I forgot our centrepiece for our unity candles and Stella went out to the secret garden and put together a pink flower arrangement - matching our wedding colours - she just did it for us without batting an eyelid, I don't think there is any hotel in the world that would go to the efforts Stella went to to help us have the wedding of our dreams. She was an invaluable part of our wedding day and we never had to ask for anything - it was there before we even needed it. The bagpipes were a wow factor for all our guests, we felt like royalty coming down the stunning main stair case. We went for pictures in Charleville Castle, only a five minute drive from the hotel. I would recommend this to anyone getting married in the midlands - just a beautiful location. During this time, our guests were treated to a Vintage Afternoon Tea reception, I have never seen anything like it!! Beautiful fine bone china, copious amounts of mini scones, sandwiches and home made sweet treats. The champagne was flowing and everyone mingled in the beautiful lobby area. The wedding meal itself was the highlight of our day. I have never had food like it. The menu was stunning and it really showed the skill and dedication of the chefs that work in the Bridge House. We had Chicken & Mushroom Vol au Vent or Prawn Cocktail to start, second course was Red Pepper & Tomato Soup (the little penny loaves served with the soup were so cute), a Champagne Sorbet course, followed by Fillet Steak or Seabass for main course and the Bridge House Buffet of Desserts for the final course. Since our wedding, each and every guest has messaged us to tell us how amazing the food was. We ate more than we could manage because the food was just too good to leave behind. A special mention to Tony, the head chef, who cooked us the most beautiful and memorable meal of our lives. I have been to many Michelin restaurants but nothing could have come close to that Fillet Steak, melt in your mouth!!! The dessert buffet too was fabulous, huge mirrors with every dessert you could imagine on offer. Our guests were overwhelmed by it all. Just when we thought we couldn't handle any more food, the evening food was served around 11pm. It consisted of snack boxes, home made pizzas and the part I loved the most...Tayto sandwiches!! Our English guests have never had a Tayto sandwich- some even went and bought some to bring home with them. We danced till well into the early hours and continued our celebrations in the residence bar. The atmosphere, warmth and hospitality in this hotel is something you have to see to believe. We all felt at home, chatting and laughing all week in the lobby and listening to all the wedding antics the next day. Our honeymoon suite was gorgeous, with chocolate dipped strawberries and a champagne breakfast in bed. The Jacuzzi is a nice touch too. We felt like we were on cloud nine, we just didn't want it to ever end. A huge thank you to Antonia, our wedding coordinator who is just brilliant at her job. I left two big boxes of extra wedding bits with her the day before the wedding and all was displayed beautifully on the day. Stella, who managed all operations on the day is a credit to this hotel. I watched her at some points throughout the day and she is just sooo good at what she does. So friendly and helpful, absolutely nothing was a problem and she treated all of us like VIPs. Noel McCann is a superstar, he really represents what the Bridge House is all about; just true, genuine hospitality at its best. Thank you to Emma and Geraldine who helped with our rooms - I don't know how they managed to allocate us all such beautiful rooms. Sean, who served us on top table was brilliant too - we never had a glass empty and no guest was left waiting - very difficult I'm sure when steak is on the menu for 120 people. Thank you to Tony, he is a mighty chef who helped us settle the score on what potatoes to serve. Mareena in the Italian restaurant looked after our guests before and after the wedding day, she is so welcoming and a great character when looking after people. I will never forget the work the Bridge House Hotel put in to ensure us and our guests had the best day ever. If anyone is thinking of getting married in the midlands, trust me, go and see the Bridge House first. It is a beautiful venue, with everything in one location and the most amazing hotel staff I have ever come across. We just wish we could do it all over again. The attention to detail is what makes this hotel truly unique. So many of our guests have already booked to come back next year. Thank you, once again from the bottom of our hearts, for giving us a day we will never ever forget!! Louise & Wayne Merrell xxx

The staff at the Bridge House Hotel went out of their way to make the day such a success for us. We couldn't believe how easily everything fell into place on the day and we now know that it was all down to the staff and their professionalism. We can't thank them enough and would definitely have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for your wedding. The only issue we had on the day was that it went too fast - can we do it all over again please?
Response from Bridge House Hotel
Dear Teresa & Stephen What a great way to put it, can we do it all over again please? That's what we like to hear! We are so happy for you both, your delight and love for eachother truly shone on the day, and we are so honoured to have been a part of it.

Myself and my wife had our reception in the ballroom in the Bridge House. The setting was beautiful, they had purple lighting to go with the bridesmaids colour dresses. They put in a lot of effort to make it special for both us and our guest's and it really showed on the day. Everyone was blown away by the room. They also make you feel special when you go for the menu tasting. They have your food choices done out on a menu welcoming you both. The food tasting was exceptional, we both thought that it would be just sample sizes but they exceeded our expectations as everything was full portions. And then you get to meet with the chef afterwards to go through your menu and make sure that everything is to your liking. We thought that this was a very nice touch. The hotel staff were second to none, could not fault them in any way. We both got 6 months free gym membership and offered to go back for our 1 yr anniversary. Antonia and Noel are lovely to deal with, they go through every little detail and make sure that everything goes to plan. We both would 100% recommend the Bridge House Hotel to anyone who is thinking about getting married

I would like to share how amazing we found the Bridge House venue to be in catering for our wedding on the 1st of July. We were blown away by how perfectly they managed the lead up to our day, our special day and even the aftermath. We could not have expected more professionalism, diligence and perfection. From the delightful wedding coordinator Antonia at the start of our journey, to Barry the fantastic and competent Events manager, to Noel who drove us on the day and looked after us in every possible way, to the Reception staff and the lovely Arlene and not even forgetting the wonderful Leisure Centre staff who were so kind and helpful in the lead up to the big day- I cannot praise and thank everybody enough. The BH went above and beyond our expectations in presentation, service, food and attention to detail. I cannot recommend the venue enough!! On the second day, we had a barbeque and the food for the second time was sensational! We could not believe the spread they put on for us. They finished our wedding celebrations as they started and we could not be more grateful. Antonia, Barry, Noel and the entire friendly staff thank you so much.

We went to the summer wedding fair in the bridge house hotel in 2016. From the minute we arrived we where treated so well answered all out questions Brought us through everything so clearly.The following day we booked our wedding, We dealt with Antonia and team all the way through they where always there at the end of the phone if we ever needed anything. Few weeks before the wedding we where brought into the hotel for a tasting and it was so good we went through everything met the chef, Stella went through the timeline for the day, table displays everything. The day of the wedding Noel was outstanding he was there for us all the way through the day. Everything was so professional the team knew exactly what to do and when. The meal was beautiful and the dessert table was incredible everyone couldn't believe the table. The food during the night was perfect also and so much to go around. The tayto sandwich was a nice touch at the end of the night. We had a lot of people staying at the hotel from Galway and the UK and they all praised the standard of the rooms, food and the staff so much. Myself and Melissa would highly recommend the bridge house hotel, never have we been so pleased with the way we where treated. We couldn't have asked for anything else on the day as the team at the bridge house hotel had everything covered. We would say the team would be able to do a wedding with there eyes closed after how smoothly everything went.

Our Wedding day at the Bridge House Hotel exceeded our expectations. After attending a wedding there the previous year, we knew this was the venue for us. We planned our wedding from Australia and what we thought would be difficult was made effortless. As we only arrived home to Ireland a few weeks before the wedding day I thought it was impossible for us to do the menu tasting but Antonia organised it all for us and we were given a friendly welcome and had a lovely evening together with my parents.We cannot thank, Antonia, Danny, Noel and all the staff at the hotel enough for their help and expert advice throughout the planning process. Everything on our wedding day was perfect. The warm welcome our guests and ourselves received was amazing. The food was superb, our guests raved about it for days. The team had placed all our extra wedding accessories perfectly and attended to everything in a friendly manner. The ballroom was beautiful, all the little extra touches the hotel provide is such a lovely gesture. Although we had a large number of guests the room still felt intimate.We would highly recommend this venue, they really go above and beyond.

Dear Aine Thank you for taking the time to review your wedding experience with us.

The Bridge House is a perfect choice of wedding venue if you are looking for somewhere that is visually breathtaking, provides service of an exceptionally high standard and also gives you value for money. It is also a place that you can be guaranteed a fantastic meal. In both the run up to, and the day of the wedding, the staff at the Bridge couldn't have been more accommodating. We especially want to thank Antonia, Noel and Stella who made everything run perfectly on the day. For any couples looking at potential venues, this place is definitely worth a visit.

We can not thank the staff of the Bridge House Hotel enough! They were all so friendly and helpful! We ended up having our wedding there due to very different circumstances which meant bringing 200 Cork people up to Tullamore for the weekend. As you can imagine, the distance meant relying heavily on calls, emails and weekend trips. Stella and Antonia, our Wedding Coordinators were more than amazing, to handle a bride who likes to be in control! I couldn't have asked for better people to ease any worries I may have had. The rooming staff were also fantastic, putting up with my hundreds of emails re numbers and swappings. The front desk staff were so helpful the night before the wedding and even the morning of, helping with last minute printing. I don't know where to begin about the food, there is nothing to fault, the quality and presentation were flawless. They kindly organised a lovely meal for all our guests the night before the wedding, something we did not expect, it was a great idea because it gave all our loved ones and friends an opportunity to meet each which meant there were some lovely friendships for the wedding. In fact, all our guests were raving about how amazing the hotel was. So much so that when we arrived home from honeymoon, many people in town were telling us all the good stories they heard from our guests. I know a few Cork people will be heading there for breaks very shortly! Of course we can't forget the Social Butterfly that is Noel, what a man! From the first time I met him, to treating my parents to a lovely tour of all the hotel had to offer, to the morning after the wedding, Noel was talking to everyone and helping anyone who needed it. The Bridge House is a place we will always have special memories for and can't wait to be there again for our anniversary.

Dear Katie What an amazing, detailed review - thank you! It was our pleasure from start to finish and we were so happy to welcome everyone all the way from Cork that weekend! We hoped we showed them how it's done in Tullamore ;) The whole team here are delighted you and all your guests left so happy and that the word is spreading locally in Cork, that's great news. We too look forward to welcoming you back for your anniversary stay, and hearing all about your first year as husband and wife! Thanks again from all of us, Antonia

My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Bridge House Hotel on a wonderful Wednesday in October 2016. A bit of a back-story to the wedding day – we only gave the hotel notice of approx. 8 weeks (as we only got engaged late July of the same year!) to help us organize the best wedding reception ever – oh did I mention, we live in Vancouver, Canada – so all of the correspondence was done over the phone and via email. We dealt primarily with Noel and Antonia in the preparations for the big day; we were also helped greatly by Stella, Geraldine and Christy. We presented our crazy ideas to them and let them know our budget and how many guests we were expecting (approx. 120 people). Myself, Ivan and Noel discussed the different options and packages available to us within our budget. We had no idea of the amount of details that goes into a wedding day – Noel talked us through everything and made us feel comfortable to ask questions and mix/match ideas with him until we got what we envisioned. After our wedding ceremony, Noel was there (in one of the Bridge House Hotels vintage wedding cars) to chauffer Ivan and myself to our photo location, he waited patiently for us to be finished up and then he drove us to the hotel. We also had the joy of celebrating with a cool bottle of bubbly in the car as we travelled to the reception – we felt like celebrities! When we arrived at the reception, we were in awe – a red carpet lining the steps, a piper to introduce us to our awaiting guests and a glass of champagne each, we were mesmerized. All of our guests were enjoying their Vintage Arrivals Reception and sparkling wine when we arrived, it was a wonderful open space to meet and greet with everyone before the meal began. After the guests were seated inside the ballroom, we were escorted in by the piper and introduced to our guests as Mr & Mrs, this was a magical feeling, all of our family and friends were seated in such a manner that we could clearly see them all from the top table. Our wedding cake was displayed beautifully on its own dedicated table to the front of the top table. The Bridge House Hotel supplied all table linen, chair coverings (with coordinating sashes), floral arrangements/Candelabras etc. for the day which saved us having to worry about these features. There were other magic touches added to make the ballroom “pop” – a huge LOVE sign to greet guests as they entered, a sweet cart jammed with everyone’s favorite sweets and a beautiful fairy light backdrop behind the top table. We had a 5-course meal: Choice of 2 starters, Soup, Choice of 2 main courses, Bridge House Medley of Desserts, Tea & Coffee. This was accompanied by red & white wine for our guests also. As the night got on and after lots of fun and dancing, people were starting to get a little hungry again – The hotel saved the day – with evening food consisting of chicken goujons, cocktail sausages, fish & chips, pizza, sandwiches and tea/coffee to wash it all down. This was a fantastic spread, our guests were talking about it weeks after – a perfect solution to refuel us all for more dancing and singing. Much later in the night, after some of the guests had retired to their beds or gone home, we all moved from the ballroom and went into the beautiful resident’s bar, where we had a late extension. The party started up there again but this time it was a sing-song/accordion-guitar mix, the resident’s bar is perfect for such a party. After an hour or two of singing and music, the fantastic Bridge House Hotel pulled it out of the bag again and served up sandwiches and tea/coffee for the remaining guests. This was greatly appreciated at that hour of the morning, especially by our older guests. We stayed in the magnificent bridal suite at the hotel that night and also had two beautiful rooms for our parents. The next morning we thoroughly enjoyed our special champagne breakfast with our family and relaxed in the lobby afterwards. I cannot express how grateful we are to everyone at the Bridge House Hotel for their help in organizing this day with us and making it go off without a hitch – every single thing we wanted, we got and so so much more on top. Thank you. Maria + Ivan

To anyone considering booking their wedding in the Bridge House Hotel Tullamore or at a stage where theyre only starting to look around please consider this hotel. From the moment i walked in during a wedding fair it was like a fairytale. Having seen it, i couldnt get it out of my mind even whilst looking at other hotels, we both knew we had to go and book it. From that first day until the morning after our wedding day ive had nothing but praise for them. Each member of staff was so helpful from the word go and were always only a phonecall away. Even when sad family circumstances meant we didnt know if our wedding could go ahead, they couldnt do enough for us and were willing to work with us to make it happen no matter what. We had a wedding day that will never be forgotten and so many agreed. People spoke afterwards of the wow factor from start to finish and we cant argue with that. The food, the service, the friendliness, the helpfullness etc etc was exceptional. The Bridge House will simply give you the wedding day that every girl has imagined all their lives. We are so so grateful to them for every minute of it. Dont hesitate in considering your choice of hotel.

Oh Bernie & Will, what a lovely review. Thank you from all of us here, it was our pleasure. What an amazing recommendation - we're all so delighted everything was such a fairytale, especially considering your circumstances which were heartbreaking. We wanted you both to feel like Prince & Princess and it sounds like we achieved it! Many thanks again for such kind words, and we look forward to seeing you back for your first anniversary stay. All the best in your first married year - Antonia

We booked our wedding the end of February this year for September this year, we were a bit apprehensive at first with only 7 months to plan everything, but our wedding co-ordinator Antonia put us at ease straight away and assured us we could definitely do it. With herself, Noel and Stella's help, I'm confident now we could have even done it in less time! From the word go they made us feel like we were their one and only wedding,not just on our day but this year. They went out of their way for every little detail, no queries was too silly, big or small. They were on mail, phone or told us to call in at anytime if we wanted. The staircase and ballroom was the big seller for us. Sweeping Titanic style staircase was so romantic and stunning for pictures. We had a 1930's theme so everything in the hotel fit the theme perfectly, it just oozes glamour. The ballroom is simply breathtaking and everyone is still commenting on how well it looked. We stayed the following night after the wedding and had a fantastic meal in The Balcone Restaurant 30 close family and friends. Marena the manager was a diamond, she brought colouring books and crayons over to the children in the group and fussed over them, and gave them their own table just beside us for their desert, they felt so important and gave the adults in the group a breather for a few minutes. I'd highly recommend The Bridge House Hotel to any bride and groom still searching for their venue.

It does sound cliché to say your wedding day was the best day of your life, but in my case this is definitely the case. From start to finish my wedding day was magical. Every aspect of the day was perfect, the food was amazing – including the gorgeous vintage arrival reception, which really is a lovely treat as your guests arrive to the hotel. Our meal was absolutely beautiful – every course was superb and guests still talk about it months later – every aspect was divine, and the buffet dessert is the perfect ending. The love is in the detail, and the Bridge House Hotel really go out of their way to ensure every detail of your day is spectacular. The team are exceptional, and every query is dealt with in a friendly and helpful manner. I cannot recommend the Bridge House highly enough!

My wedding experience at the The Bridge house Hotel exceeded my expectations. It was the best day of my life and the guests are still talking about it. The staff know everything that had to be done and were extremely helpful as I was in England and most things were done via email. I will always remember this day. It was amazing. A big thank you to Antonia and the staff, they were brilliant. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to future wedding couples.

From Start to Finish both myself and now Husband were so well looked after by all the staff in the Bridge House. From the outset Catriona and Antonia were there to answer our tonnes of questions no matter the time or day. We were accommodated no matter what our request and on the day itself Stella and Noel couldn't do enough for us. They were fantastic. The food was amazing and our guests could not compliment the venue enough, the amazing food enough and the general atmosphere in the Bridge House. Amazing Venue, Fantastic Staff, wonderful food

My wedding in the Bridge Hotel was the best anyone could have wished for. The standard of service and care from Antonia throughout the lead up to it was outstanding. And on the day itself, service again outstanding from Stella and Noel Mc Cann was first class. I had visitors from Scotland, England and America and they were all very impressed with the hotel from start to finish. The meal was superb and pipng hot which was a worry to me and the evening buffet equally tasty! The bridal suite was beautiful and I look forward to returning for our 1st Anniversary!!! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and I would highly recommend to any bride thinking of having their wedding here, to go ahead and book it - you won't find anything as good and brilliant value for money. As my granddaughter Grace said when she walked in "WOW" !!!!!!!!
Response from Bridge House Hotel
Dear Berni Thank you so much for your amazing review! It was genuinely so nice to read; and you were such a pleasure to deal with from the start that I'm delighted it was all you wanted it to be, and love that little Grace was 'wowed'!

We planned our wedding in about a month, it was pretty hectic but the management helped so much by taking over majority of the planning, I would make a list and everything would be sorted ASAP. They are extremely flexible with any changes. For busy brides, this is the perfect venue as they'll take care of everything.

The hotel work with you to make your wedding special and unique to you. They also worked around our budget, I didn't want to spend e500 on a photobooth but I got all the props. Stella created a wonderful table at the back which looked amazing, I was so scared it would look cheap but it was fab, my guests loved it. Everything ran on time and like clockwork on the day. We live in Australia but they were on hand via email and phone. Nothing is too much trouble, many hotels charge for little extras and have hidden costs but this wasn't the case. Amazing on the day at relieving stress and giving you as a couple the time to take it all in and really live in the moment. Friendliness to guests, my guests still talk about the staff and venue. Food was gorgeous.

Gavin and I met in 2006 on a night out on the August Bank Holiday weekend. We ended up sitting beside eachother in the pub while we were out with mutual friends, we got chatting and have been together ever since! We got engaged exactly two years later when Gavin drove us to Loughshinny, Co Dublin where I grew up and proposed while we were walking along the beach. It was perfect. I wasted no time in getting stuck into the wedding plans! Gavin is from Leitrim, but since we both live in Portarlington we decided to stay local for the wedding plans, and decided to have our reception in Tullamore as it would not be too far for Gavin's family to travel to. From the moment we walked into the Bridge House we were made feel welcome, the reception area has a real wow factor with the beautiful staircase and I had a gut feeling that it would be the perfect location for us. We were met by their friendly wedding co-ordinator who sat down with us and answered all our questions, nothing was too much trouble.After two years of planning and excitement, dresses and colours, suits and bands....and what seemed like endless waiting and saving.. the day finally arrived! I woke up at around 7am and for a few seconds waiting for the brain to kick in it was like...hmm... I know there's something really cool happening today...no it's not Christmas...... I'm getting married! It had finally arrived! The excitement I felt was brilliant. Hopped up, checked face - no major wartage or boils - bonus! Ran to window - not only was it not raining but it was looking like it was going to be a beautiful day I couldn't believe it after the rain the day before. Everyone was getting up at this stage and I remember thinking, right 7am, loads of time before Christine (hair) arrives! Went down for some breakfast, was too excited to eat much so had a slice of toast and a cuppa, everyone up and chatting at this time and my sister was playing weddingy music on you tube like going to the chapel, next thing I knew it was 9.20 and Christine rang me looking for directions to the house.. and from here on in it was all systems go! Lorna (makeup) arrived soon after and the house was transformed into a salon, the kitchen was for makeup and the sitting room was for hair so we all rotated between them with champagne flowing - this was definitely one of my favourite bits of the day it was so much fun. Then Dave the photographer arrived, and I felt like an awful eejit at first not knowing what to do when he started taking pictures but he's so nice and put everyone at ease and after a while I forgot he was there. Somewhere in the middle of it all the florist arrived with the bouquets which we loved! Poor Dad didn't know where to put himself so made himself useful by going out and got a load of breakfast rolls which were all devoured and then it was time to get into the dresses. That's when the nerves really kicked in and at this point I was wishing we all lived in a big sky plus box and I could press Pause for a while!! Once we were all beautified, Noel arrived in the wedding car which was part of our hotel package in the Bridge House, and being the pro that he was chatted away to distract us from the nerves. The girls were all collected next and off to the church along with Mam until all that was left was me and Dad. A few of the neighbours were out wishing us well it was so lovely. Noel helped me into the car (bum first, duck the head and swivel!). Who knew wearing a wedding dress was so complicated! Oh and good luck going to the bathroom - that's particularly fun!! Driving up to the church was surreal - growing up in the town and seeing so many other brides on their way to the church and suddenly it was me in the white car! By the time we got to the church (around 1.15pm) everyone was inside and the two girls who had decorated the church (from Michael Costello) were outside and helped straighten us up and organised us and calmed us down - was still nervous at this stage! The music started and the girls each walked up and suddenly there we were, me and Dad. He gave me a little squeeze to let me know he was there and off we walked up the aisle... all I remember were smiling faces looking at me from every direction... and then I saw Gavin and suddenly all the nerves were gone! He had a tear in his eye (although he still denies it!!) and it was the happiest moment, he took my hand and it was like it was just the two of us. The ceremony was beautiful and the music was amazing.. Kinvara Trio.. I cannot wait to see the video and hear them again. It went so so fast but it was just perfect. The priest took us up to the altar to say our vows so that we were facing our family and friends and it was lovely, it felt like everyone was included I really loved it. And then we were married! It was such a beautiful ceremony and the singers were absolutely brilliant - at one point during the flower duet they hit the notes so perfectly it gave me goosebumps. I think it's safe to say we sailed back down the aisle and chatted with everyone outside afterwards- the weather was amazing it was like a perfect summer's day we were absolutely blessed. Off then to Emo House and Gardens for the photos which were great craic.. Dave McClelland is fantastic. Poor Noel ended up carrying my train for me when the bridesmaids were all off having a great chat! He was brilliant. Then back to the Bridge House in Tullamore and honestly, there aren't enough words to describe how fantastic they are! We arrived to a red carpet and champagne and strawberries and everyone was gathered at the top of the stairs to greet us and again all I remember are smiling faces everywhere it was just amazing. In we go and Ann the co-ordinator took us to see the room done up and it was just..wow! Loved it! Louise from Grace Covers did the chairs for us and the hotel had beautiful candelabra/flowers centrepieces and they had the lights in purple to match the theme it was just amazing. The meal was fantastic, exactly like it was at the tasting we did we couldn't have been happier with it and the guests are still talking about how nice it was. We had the speeches first, they were great, some of them made us all cry! I got up and said a few words but to be honest I don't even remember what I said it's still a bit of a blur it just goes so fast! Cannot wait for the video! Once the meal was finished and they had brought in the sparklers and flambéd the baked alaska (amazing!) Shane Black arrived to do some magic and illusions - like Keith Barry sort of stuff - to say he went down a storm is an understatement he was absolutely brilliant! It filled in the 'waiting' perfectly and people didn't have to leave the room when the band were setting up so the atmosphere didn't die out on us and Shane kept everyone brilliantly entertained he really was excellent. How on earth he does those tricks I'll never know! I could write a whole other report just on his tricks he really is brilliant, everyone absolutely loved him they're still talking about it. Shane stayed with the guests for about 90 min until the band started, moved around between groups but eventually a crowd gathered around him and he didn't need to move around. Time for our first dance which was sooo nice, it was like there was nobody else in the room. We danced to At Last by Etta James, the words are perfect. Then me and dad had our father/daughter dance to Unforgettable by Nat King Cole, this was also one of my favourite parts of the day. Spring Break were the band and again they were brilliant! Now I know I'm biased and all but they were worth every penny. The dancefloor was never empty and not only are they a good band but they're a really good show! Everyone seemed to love them which was great. They are an 80s tribute band so dress in 80s stuff, so to tie in with this we had jars with 80s sweets on the tables and we named the tables after 80s films/tv shows/songs. Another thing we got was a speech bubble chalkboard which I got my new sister in law to bring around to the guests armed with a camera, it worked out great and I'm going to make my own little album with the pictures! The band played for a good 2 hours anyway and I don't think I stopped dancing once! Next was the DJ who was also great and kept the dancing going to the early hours. Eventually there was just a handful of us left in the residents bar and I couldn't stop looking at my new husband.. it still feels so new to be saying that! It really was the happiest day of our lives - in fact the whole month was amazing. We were so blessed that everything went like clockwork and absolutely nothing went wrong. However some tips I have would be: Get a videographer! We had Velvetine Studios - such a nice couple, Maurice and Elaine, barely even knew they were there they were so unobtrusive, the day just goes so fast and you forget loads of bits of it so the video will definitely be something to treasure. When you are lighting your candles use both hands! My hand was shaking so much it nearly blew the flame out!! And mainly - relax and enjoy it because it really is the best day EVER! Regards and many thanks again.

Dear Mr. Lenaghan, Following our Wedding at your Hotel on Thursday the 9th of August I would like to write to you to let you know that you have a wonderful team of staff working for you at the Bridge 1-louse Hotel. A team whoare great assets to your business. From once we arrived at the hotel on Wednesday the 8th until we left on Saturday the 10th August all your staff in all departments couldn’t do enough for us.I am from Galway and my husband is from Wexford, we had decided to have our Wedding in the Midlands to facilitate both families and friends having an equal distance to travel. We chose 4 hotels to view and from once we spoke to Ann Starling we had our decision made straight away without viewing all of the chosen hotels. Ann has a wonderful quality of putting couples at ease from the word go, nothing was a problem for her. She is the face of your Hotel when a couple first go and view the hotel, there is an exceptional level of comfort with Ann and she really did make our decision so easy. We also communicated a good deal via email with Caitriona in the office and both her and Ann couldn’t be more helpful and so professional. Ann decorated the room for the civil ceremony, her attention to detail was first class. She and her staff then had it stripped back for the meal and again her efforts were beyond our expectations. Both her and Noel guided us through the meal and speeches, Noel is a great character and he did a brilliant job that day and is a great asset to your front of house always chatting and joking with the customers. Our guests were from Co. Galway, Mayo, Dublin, Co Donegal, Co Wexford, UK, Holland, Germany and France, everyone commented on the service and the meal the hotel provided and said that the couldn’t name a hotel in any county in Ireland that provided such a service for a wedding. All the little touches like the flambeing of the baked Alaska at the top table etc added enormously to the event. You Head Receptionist (Her name escapes me, started with an “A”) is an exceptional and very helpful lady, and she was confronted unnecessary by a few of our guests looking to check in early (ceremony was at 3.3Opm) and handled them all very professionally despite the difficult situation she was in. We did apologise to her the day after as it was totally unnecessary for our guests to behave in such way. To all the housekeeping staff who gave us extra towels and who changed beds and cleaned the rooms with us in and out of the rooms, thank you. Thank you Ann, you are a star and Noel, Caitriona, Brenda, Head Receptionist and all your staff for a wonderful day, a truly magical day we will remember for the rest of our lives. God bless,

Denise, I felt I had to write to thank you and your staff for making our family wedding at the weekend a very memorable and positive experience. From the moment we booked your hotel last year, both yourself and your staff treated us all with great respect, humour, friendliness and professionalism. I have to say, having stayed in many a hotel that all your staff, from the bar staff, dining staff, receptionist to the cleaning staff are a credit to themselves, their training and to your hotel. They were incredibly helpful and friendly and made our weekend and celebration as enjoyable as it could possibly be. I wish you, your staff and your hotel many successful years ahead and will highly recommend you to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the midlands and in particular to anyone looking for a wedding venue. I would like to think I will get to stay with you again in the future. Regards and many thanks again.
