We had our big day on Friday. After wandering into Glasson on a whim last summer and meeting Gareth, I knew this was the venue for me. The hotel itself is beautiful with a warm and relaxed atmosphere.The views are stunning. Even on the wet and miserable day the views of Lough Ree and the immaculately kept golf course were breath taking. I had my ceremony there and it was perfect location to have it. The food was fantastic. It was delicious, no delays with it and incredibly generous portions. Gareth and his team were wonderful to work with. They were professional, accommodating and friendly. The bar staff were run off their feet with our large party but were the epitome of professionalism and kept nobody waiting. A sincere thanks to Keith, the bar manager and the bar staff. I've been inundated with compliments about the hotel from my guests which made me so happy. Glasson will always have a special place in my heart and I know that I will be returning very soon.

Gareth and all the team at Glasson Lakehouse were simply wonderful to deal with. From the very first time we met in Glasson, we received prompt responses, flexibility with what we wanted and overall a very easy and enjoyable experience. We had a fantastic day and the hotel was perfect. We got really positive feedback from our guests about the atmosphere in the hotel on arrival and throughout the evening. The food was really important to us and it was excellent with service to match. Thanks to Gareth and the team at Glasson Lakehouse.

We planned our wedding end-to-end in less than 6 months. We picked Glasson Lakehouse having attended wedding there previously, but moreso based on the wonderful staff members we met on day one, who were with us throughout the entire planning process, and present on the day to ensure everything went smoothly, which it did. We met Gareth one Sunday afternoon, and after we explained roughly what we were after, he planned out the day on a piece of paper which almost 100% matched the plan I had in my pocket! We knew then that Gareth well understood our requirements. Thankfully the hotel was available on our revised date. We later met with Robyn, the Operations Manager who stepped through the day-plan piece by piece, and gave us added confidence that the day would run smoothly. Ava at reception took care of all our room requirements, and carefully documented all of our wedding items when they were dropped in the day before our wedding. On the day itself, I was met by Gareth at the door, and it was so reassuring to work with the same team from the start of our planning. The ability to have our ceremony upstairs suited us perfectly, with our guests strolling downstairs to the drinks reception. The food was amazing....during the drinks reception, the main dinner itself, and a wonderful range of food later on in the evening. Our guests are still talking about the quality of the food, the comfortable bedrooms, and the friendliness of all staff. We would absolutely recommend Glasson Lakehouse for any size wedding or event; they certainly met all our rquirements for wedding planning within a shorter time than usual. Thank you Gareth, Robyn, Ava, Sean and all the staff.

We were won over by Glasson from our first visit. As a very, very indecisive couple, this is a MAJOR feat for this hotel and shows the magic that it holds. This magic comes from a combination of many things but in particular it is: (1) the stunning views and setting that the hotel has looking out onto the lake and beautiful countryside – these views are enjoyed from throughout the hotel but most importantly for us these were most enjoyed from the area where we had our ceremony, reception and dinner. (2) the kindness, care and attention that the staff at Glasson has. This is shown by all of the staff from the front desk, bar and breakfast staff to the wedding team. The wedding team of Gareth and Robin for us were top class. We had a lot of questions and queries throughout and they were always on hand with prompt responses and advice. We didn’t have a clue about planning a wedding and the wedding team always were very reassuring and made you feel you were in good hands, both in the lead up to the big and during the actual day itself. They were very personable, and it was very easy for us to place our trust in them. I list the above as our top two reasons for choosing Glasson but there were many others: (3) We had the hotel to ourselves for our wedding on 21st December so it felt like we were in a wedding bubble with our family and friends with 100% of the staff’s care and attention which made it so much more special. (4) The food served at both the reception and the dinner were excellent and we had so many compliments from guests on how much they enjoyed their dinner. Glasson prides themselves on their food served for their weddings and they certainly lived up to that. They were very generous with both food and wine servings which was also appreciated by guests. (5) Another bonus is having the village of Glasson down the road with some lovely pubs and restaurants, one of which we visited for a dinner with our family the night before the wedding where we enjoyed top quality food and excellent service in a nice easy going and cosy setting. (6) Having a golf course on site which some of the wedding party were able to enjoy over the weekend and on the morning of the wedding. (7) Plenty of bedrooms so that we could have majority of our guests stay at the hotel. (8) I know this is completely seasonal but getting to enjoy the lovely Christmas decorations and cosy fires all around the hotel. (9) The convenience of being able to have our wedding ceremony at the hotel with the backdrop of beautiful lake views and grounds. We truly had the best day and weekend of our lives, and we wish we could go back and relive it all again at Glasson. All our guests who attended the wedding and were staying at Glasson were full of genuine compliments about what a great day they had and complimentary to the hotel. We would not have changed a single thing and we could not recommend this venue any higher. You will be in great hands at Glasson with top quality views and top quality and genuine care from the Glasson team.

We had our wedding day in September this year and we couldnt recommend Glasson Country House Hotel highly enough. Gareth, Fidelma & the whole team at Glasson could not have done enough for us throughout the whole process and especially on the day. No task was too big or too small. All our guests were blown away by the amazing service, the food, the wine and the beautiful views across the lake. We enjoyed every minute of our day and our family and friends are still talking about what a fantastic day they had. A big thank you to everyone at Glasson. We truly had an unforgettable day!

We haven’t got married yet but I would recommend this venue for weddings as for one, the setting is absolutely beautiful and two, the wedding coordinator is brilliant for responding to all my queries and always makes us feel so welcome when we arrive up at the hotel to have another look around. I don’t know is the value for money excellent as the hotel could do with updating the decor a little bit I felt the surroundings of the hotel made me overlook some outdated decor.

I would highly recommend Glasson country house hotel for a wedding. We chose this hotel mainly because of the beautiful views surrounding the hotel. Also we had previously attended a wedding there and it had made a good impression. Huge thanks to Gareth and all the team, they were a great help from start to finish and everything ran really smoothly on the day. The food and service was exceptional. We got fantastic photos out on the golf course with the lake in the background. Also lovely area in the woods on the way in for photos. Our family and friends all commented on how friendly and helpful the staff were. Caroline and James

Glasson Country House is a wonderful venue. From the moment we met with Gareth,the wedding co-ordinator, we knew that this was our venue. It was like he read our minds & knew what we wanted. This hotel has wedding planning down to a small art. They have everything you would need or want. The hotel is nestled on a beautiful lake side setting which is perfect for your photographs. But for us and what seemed to go down well with out guests was the food. The presentation of the food, speed of service and the taste cannot be faulted. Everything is perfect. So much so that the majority of my guests complemented the meal with a few saying that it was the best wedding meal they ever had. Our guests loved the bedrooms and many have vowed to return some day. Look no further than this wedding venue especially if you plan on a summer wedding.

We had the best day ever on 29th June in glasson golf and country house hotel. The sun was shining, the lake was glistening and our guests were buzzing! The atmosphere was fantastic. It is a fabulous family-run establishment with great attention to detail. Gareth was so so helpful all throughout the 11 month lead up to the big day. Always at the end of the phone or email. The food was amazing- mouthwatering filler steak and salmon. There were tasty veggie/ vegan options also. The room looked fabulous- we brought in our own decor/ flowers/ table numbers incl cherry blossom trees fairy lights and love letters as the hotels flower offering didn’t suit our theme. Gareth and his team were open to all suggestions, helped with all deliveries etc. We had a tasting menu 2 weeks prior to the big day and the food on the actual day was even better! We had our day 2 celebrations in glasson village in the villager gastropub which I would also really recommend. Thanks again to all at glasson, for helping make our wedding day the best day of our lives xx ????

Glasson Country House Hotel is an amazing wedding venue. We honestly had the best day (weekend) of our lives. Gareth was always at the other end of the phone or email throughout the entire process to answer any queries I had. Nothing was too much trouble. He really listened to my wishes and gave great advice when needed. The rest of the staff were amazing too. Our guests are still telling me what a great venue it was and that it was the best wedding meal they ever had! We even had our day 2 celebrations back at Glasson Hotel after spending the day cruising down the River Suir and a few hours in Sean's Bar. You will not be disappointed!

We had our ceremony and reception in Glasson Country House Hotel. Everything was amazing - our guests sung the praises of the venue, the food, the wine and the service. The weekend was flawless and we had so much fun. The attention to detail was great and even though the staff do this for so many couples every week - Gareth, Fidelma, Irene, Tony and the rest of the team made us feel so special and unique. The location and venue are absolutely stunning with breath taking views of the lake. From the day we made our first enquiry with the venue right up until the wedding day - communication and responsiveness were top notch. A big thank you to everyone!

First thing I will say is if you are thinking of booking Glasson Country House for your wedding, do it, you won't be disappointed! I had never been to a wedding in Glasson before but had heard some really great things from people who had got married there and/or had been to a wedding there. We had heard how easy they were to deal with, and how excellent the food was in terms of taste and also portion sizes. When we got engaged, Glasson was the first hotel we visited and ended up being the only one we visited. Firstly we were so impressed with the drive in and once we got to the reception everyone was so friendly and relaxed. We really felt the homely feel which was important to us. We then met Gareth who from the get go was so easy to deal with. He's gives very practical advice and really understood what was important to us. For us, making sure everyone was well fed was really key for us and that there was no delays with food and service. We were blown away on the day with the attention not only we received but also our guests. We wanted to cut the cake at our reception and serve to our guests rather than after the meal and that was absolutely no problem - this meant that none of our cake went to waste. We were told that the bell would ring for guests at 5:30 and that the bridal party and us would then arrive in at 6 which happened exactly as planned. This was so important for us - there's nothing worse than still waiting to eat at 7:30! The food was excellent and plentiful, they even came back with second helpings of the main course. With our numbers (152) we didn't need to put tables on the dance floor so there was a quick turn around for the band to kick off at about 9:30. All day and night the staff were so friendly and helpful and were interacting and having fun with our guests when serving the food. There was also plenty of wine top ups which was really impressive! Having our wedding at Glasson, really made the day for us. We wanted to have fun and for everyone to enjoy themselves and that's what the atmosphere in Glasson allowed us to do. It has everything; amazing views, great food and wonderful service. In terms of pricing, it is slightly higher than some other others in Athlone but in my opinion it is excellent value for money - you get what you pay for. There's no extra costs, everything is included and they go over and beyond in terms of service. Thank you Gareth and all the team for making our wedding day so memorable and we can't wait to come back and visit soon. Ailish & Karl

We were extremely happy with our Glasson Country House wedding reception in August. Firstly the setting and photo-taking sites are beautiful and numerous. Fidelma and the entire team were always a pleasure to deal with and each and everyone was extremely accommodating on the day. The food was amazing and wine was flowing nicely. Our guests were all very happy with the food and especially the friendly and accommodating staff. We had a particularly international bunch with a good few infants to cater for too and some dietary requests but this was no problem to the Glasson team. Bridal suite and accommodation in general is beautiful. The whole planning process was made very easy for us and the dining room looked stunning on the day. I was quite an anxious, indecisive bride but nothing was ever too much trouble for the team. Also they managed to find the bluest hydrangeas I have ever seen which was like a dream come true for me :) Would highly recommend to any couple.

We arranged out wedding in Glasson in four months. From the start Gareth was fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. All my silly questions were answered in no time. As for the day itself, everything went off without a hitch! My bridesmaids and I stayed the night before and got ready there, the morning of. Everyone in the hotel knew we were the "special guests" and they looked after us so well. Anything we asked for, we had within a matter of minutes. Throughout the reception Robin and Gareth were there to ensure all was perfect. The food was absolutely amazing!! Our guests are still talking about their dinner. A few of our guests are vegan and they could not believe the choice available to them. Several have said it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. The views here are stunning, even on a wet day like ours. If you're thinking of booking your wedding in Glasson, do it. You won't be disappointed.

From our first viewing of Glasson Country House Hotel we knew it was the venue for us. The stunning location on the shores of Lough Ree was just one of the many reasons we chose this venue. The wedding co-ordinate Gareth was a pleasure to work with, as we live abroad he helped make the day very easy to organise. Our wedding day went off smoothly thanks to the great work by all the staff at Glasson. Our guests were very complimentary about the venue and they especially enjoyed the canapés and the evening meal. We would definitely recommend Glasson Hotel to future couples.

Highly recommend, everyone loved the food and service and nothing was a hassle. If a big hotel isn’t your style and you are after a more relaxed country house style, this is fab. No need for additional costs for draping the room as the backdrop of the grounds is a lot nicer and the layout keeps everyone together and none can drift off.

We had an amazing wedding day at Glasson Hotel. From the first meeting to follow up after and everything in between Gareth, Robin, Fidelma and the whole team at Glasson went above and beyond for us. On the day itself the staff, food, quality and overall service and kindness was outstanding. The guests are still talking about how good and amazing the hotel was more than the rest of the wedding day! The food (both quality and amounts) were superb.. with guests who wouldn't usually eat much getting second helpings! Anything I asked of the hotel there was no hesitation to do or help with! We had our ceremony here as well as the reception and we couldn't have wished for a more beautiful day with such beautiful surroundings too of course. I would do it all again and wouldn't change a thing! Highly recommend to anybody that Glasson is the perfect venue for your wedding!

We recently got married in St Mary’s Church Athlone and had our reception in Glasson country house & golf club. We knew straight away when we viewed Glasson that it was the place for us. A welcoming family owned business on such beautiful grounds! From start to finish we had the most amazing day and are so sad it’s all over. We live and work in Toronto so all our communication was done through email, mainly to Gareth! Gareth was fantastic, giving us lots of advice and helping us with any queries along the way. I’m sure we drove him crazy with all the emails! All our guests are still talking about how they had such a fabulous day, the beauty of the hotel! The fantastic food that was served at the drinks reception and for the meal! The excellent service and welcoming from the staff! The beautiful rooms which they stayed in! We had our day after party at Glasson also Gareth arranged a bus for us to bring our guests into town and return that evening. We also had a fantastic buffet for all our guests, which was a welcome treat to everyone!! Glasson went above and beyond all our expectations, we can’t thank them enough!! We had the most amazing day of our lives and have lots of memories to treasure thanks to everyone at Glasson Country House.

We had an amazing wedding day at Glasson Country House. Gareth was very welcoming and from the get go we had great trust in him. Everybody commented on the cleanliness of the hotel and how friendly and welcoming all the staff were, it seems they genuinely love their jobs. The food was delicious and very generous portion sizes. When are organising a wedding there's so much to think about and we loved how flexible and accommodating Glasson Country House were. We tailor made a package suitable for us and it was very affordable in terms of other venues we viewed. Also the fantastic views cannot go without a mention, we managed to get some amazing pictures that we will cherish forever. Ciara Canavan

Glasson Country House were absolutely fabulous in every way. They were very helpful in the lead up and outstanding on the day. The food was absolutely delicious (guests are still talking about it to this day) and were so attentive on the day. It was the little things and the attention to detail on the day that we will remember. One of the very young children started crying during the meal and one of the very kind staff came over and walked around the room with the child in her arms until he calmed down...little things like that are hard to find! Our numbers were quite small.. 86 on the day, but they were able to divide the room so that the crowd appeared huge on the day! And that view..to die for. Highly recommend!

Having searched all around Ireland for the right venue for us for weeks, we finally found Glasson Country House. We fell in love with this scenic, elegant beauty just outside Athlone. A warm and inviting atmosphere awaited us every time we visited. The planning process was made much easier knowing that your wedding was in safe hands! Its attention to detail is second to none. Everything we needed, we received immediately. Thank you sincerely to the management and staff for the outstanding service they provided and for making our wedding such a memorable experience - one we will never forget.I cannot wait to see our professional photographs.

First of all, we travelled from across the globe to have our wedding here and it was perfect! We had stayed at the venue years ago and knew it would be the ideal place for our wedding. Our planner, Gareth, was extremely helpful from the beginning. We were planning from overseas and did most of the logistics via email, so it meant so much that Gareth was prompt, proactive and gave great suggestions. All of the staff were immensely helpful and organized as well. They went above and beyond both during our planning and on the day, doing everything to accommodate our requests and made our day perfect. They really made you feel at home and looked after. They worked with and accommodated our outside vendors (cake, music, photographers, etc.) as well, in a professional manner that made everything run smoothly (and kept us calm!) They were flexible with the menu selections and everyone LOVED the meal. One of the staff even escorted the groom and myself and the photographers on private golf cart to places around the grounds in order to take the perfect photographs. We had the perfect day and our guests did as well! Wouldn't have had it any other place - five stars!

We got plenty of great feedback from our guests and we would not have a single complaint. The food, rooms, service, etc were all top quality. We had a group of approx 60 staying for a second night and after our boat trip with Viking Ship Athlone and a few drinks in Sean's bar we returned to the hotel for a delicious buffet. We loved everything about our wedding experience at this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We got married in Glasson Country House Hotel this summer. The management and staff were an absolute pleasure to deal with, all of their preparations paid off and everything was perfect. I genuinely mean it when I say that, we could not find a fault if we tried. Our guests are still talking about the service, food and scenery and we have been told it was the best wedding venue they had ever been at. We had a very definite vision of how we wanted our wedding to play out and Glasson made it happen! From the moment our car pulled up at the door on the Saturday until we drove away on the Monday, we were treated like royalty by every member of staff. Every last member of staff we encountered was so friendly and so many stopped to talk to us over the Saturday, Sunday and even Monday to congratulate us. It meant the world to us that our families and friends were so well looked after. The attention given to us all was certainly noted and so very much appreciated. The food was out of this world and is still the talk of many of our guests when we meet them. It was the best food I've ever had at a wedding and I'm a fussy eater! The scenery surrounding the hotel was amazing and our photographs were made all the more special by the beautiful views in the background. Gareth’s pleasant disposition and warm welcome whenever we visited, always put us at ease. He made it so stress free for us! It was great to have had him by our side since 2014 when we first enquired! We never looked back, what a wonderful decision we made way back then! We can highly recommend Glasson Country House Hotel to any perspective couples!

The venue is stunning for photos, there are opportunities by the wooded area at the entrance and jumping in a golf buggy to go down by the lake.

From the very beginning the staff in Glasson Country House could not do enough for us. No request was to big for them and they made the whole process so effortless and stress free. All of our guests commented on how friendly staff were on the day and how accommodating they were with certain requirements. From Staff taking both mothers facinators to their room after dinner, to the bridal suite been all set up for us with curtains closed and lights left on. It was all the small details that made it so unforgettable. They really could not have done anymore for us and helped in such a big way to make our wedding day a day to never forget. We really cannot recommend or thank them enough.

Patrick & Rebecca, On behalf of all the Team here at Glasson, thank you for taking the time to pass on your feedback. I believe that you highlight one of the most important elements - the whole 'experience' of getting Married should be an enjoyable one from the very start - your 'effortless and stress free'. As you rightly point out, the 'little touches' really do make a difference - not forgetting that all the Big Ticket items will also be right on the day! Kind regards, and alll the very best.

Dealing with Gareth from the get go was an absolute pleasure. We were in Australia when we first started looking at venues and he was always so responsive to emails and excellent at clearing up any queries we had no matter how big or small. So when we arrived home and decided to book our wedding it was always going to be Glasson Country House Hotel. The setting is fantastic, views incredible and the staff just so pleasant. On our wedding day, we had an hour long drive from the Church to Glasson, and things ran a bit later than originally expected. Gareth was on hand immediately with a golf buggy to transport us around the grounds to get our photos taken and made sure everything was done quickly and beautifully (we didn't want to miss much of the drinks reception of course) Gareth knows the place like the back of his hand and was able to suggest some additional photo opportunities. We were really blessed with a gorgeous day so we and our guests got to take in the beauty of the hotel and its grounds. Once we got back for the drinks reception, there was no problem with pushing the call for dinner back 15 minutes or so to give us some extra time with our guests before dinner, this was very much appreciated. We were enjoying ourselves so much that, I of course, was forgetting to eat the beautiful food which was presented on arrival, so you can imagine it was a treat when Gareth caught up with me and followed me around with a plate of sandwiches as a gentle reminder!! As and from this point everything ran like clockwork. We had 220 guests and everyone was seated so quickly, we had our entrance then and almost as soon as we sat down our starter was served and we were ready to start the speeches two hours later. We are still getting comments on the quality of the food and the very generous servings and seconds. People said that everywhere they turned there was food, which is fantastic especially when people travel for a wedding. Our guests were completely in awe of this venue, most had never been to a wedding here before and they thought it was so well laid out and extremely professionally organised. The dance floor is in the prefect spot, it is the perfect size, and there was absolutely no delay in moving the two tables that were there during the meal. One comment we have gotten over and over again is on the layout of the room and how there doesn't need to be much movement or disruption after the meal so everyone stays put as the band set up rather than disappearing to the bar, as we know it can be hard to get people back in to the swing of things once they leave the room! We danced the night away, the staff were so pleasant and even though there was a pretty late finish, there was not one complaint from the night staff. You can tell that they actually enjoy working there and that makes a huge difference. Tom, the owner, went round and spoke to our guests too which was a nice touch. Robin, thank you for helping us with the menu and making sure things ran smoothly on the day. Fidelma was also a pleasure to deal with, so down to earth and professional at the same time. The reception staff were so good when Hubby went down the day before with all of our bits and bobs (I was too busy so flung him in the deep end), the bar staff took everything in their stride… I really can’t say enough. Finally, a massive thank you to Gareth, you were like a wave of calm over us every time you came up to chat during the day, so relaxed and absolutely always smiling. Our only problem now is that we want to do it all over again!! Thank you Glasson for a wedding day that neither we nor our guests will forget!

The Glasson House Hotel team were amazing from the get-go. As we were living in Melbourne, it made arranging our wedding in Ireland all the more difficult but little did we know when selecting Glasson House Hotel it would come with the most professional, dedicated, warm and friendly service. Gareth and Fidelma made us feel at ease from the start - none of our requests or changes were ever too big or small. The accommodated us in many ways throughout the process, whether that be how we wanted the table setting to be arranged, what flowers could go where or what colour to set the lights - it was handled with ease and we always felt like we were top of their list. As we had traveled from Melbourne, along with many overseas guests, the accommodation team ensured that our family, closest friends and long haul guests had the best rooms available and greeted our o/seas guests by name welcoming them to Ireland. We also held a full day 2 of celebrations at the Hotel, and on Gareth's recommendation we booked a boat trip to Sean's pub followed by BBQ for 120+ guests back at the hotel on Sunday evening, we had live music and full bar services. Our guests were wowed by the service we had for the entire weekend and the food was impeccable. Many walked away saying it was the best run wedding they had been at, with others booking return weekend get-aways to play golf or just rest and relax with that beautiful outlook. We would most definitely do it all again at Glasson! I would highly recommend Glasson as a Wedding venue - its a family run business and it really feels that way. Thank you to all!!

We knew from the minute we drove through the gates at Glasson Country House Hotel that we wanted to have our wedding reception there. We looked at a few other places but they didn't come close to Glasson. Gareth looked after us from day one and anytime we asked him anything he responded immediately. Nothing was ever a problem and that took the pressure off us which we were glad of. The day itself was fabulous and everyone praised the venue, the food and the accommodation.

Any of you new engaged people, congratulations ! Hi there , My name is Cliona and I endeavour to share with you my experience of getting married in Glasson Country House Hotel& Golf Hotel ! I wanted to have a civil ceremony outside and this was proving difficult to find.The moment I walked into the hotel it was bright spacious and friendly. We were met by Fidelma Reid, who could not do enough for us. When we told her we were looking to have our civil ceremony outside, Fidelma replied, 'Well we haven't done it before, but I can't see this to be a problem' I knew we were going to get married here. Fidelma sat down with us and spent as much time as we needed. She listened to us and never push any of her ideas on us.Subsequently on another visit to Glasson, I told Fidelma I had had a few Margaritas, made by a friend, Fidelma insisted on making me another Margarita, which of course tasted great ! Glasson is a family run hotel , ran by Fidelma's family. They pride themselves on their excellent food and service. I honestly have not tasted food as good anywhere else ! Through Fidelma we meet other managers, Niall Flynn who was professional and enthusiastic and was always on the other side of the phone, Robin, the Food and Beverage manager who advised us excellently on timing of food and wines to compliment food ! Stephen on front desk who was so friendly and methodical with our rooming list and so fantastic ! I would advise anybody getting married to see for themselves the beauty and warmth this family run hotel has to offer, or indeed just to stay in the Glasson Golf Hotel and taste the fabulous food is a pleasurable experience. The hotel caters for individuals. Let me take this opportunity to say , thank you so much to the staff of Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf for everything you did for our wedding day.

We cannot praise the hotel & its staff highly enough. We had a very small intimate family wedding and they treated us with the same high standards they would if we had 200+ guests. They asked us & more importantly listen to what we wanted and accommodated all our ideas - everything from the design & layout of the room, colour schemes etc. Even to the setting up of a children's area with TV/DVD to one side of the main reception room where the children could be entertained and safe but not under the adults feet. The food and service were second to none. Our wedding planner was great and kept in touch with us throughout the planning process and in the run up to the big day to help keep us in touch with what was happening. And all our guests loved the rooms they stayed in. The bridal suite was beautiful. The grounds themselves are fantastic for photos and the use of the bridal buggie saves a lot of walking around for those involved

We had an absolutely wonderful day on Feb 7th, and it was mostly due to the hard work, kindness, organisation and service of all the staff at Glasson. We could find no fault with Glasson on our big day. It would take us hours to go through everything that made us enjoy the Glasson experience, but here are our highlights: (1) The warm welcome we received every time we walked through the door; (2) The quality of the response by the front desk team every time we had a query about the day or room bookings; (3) The venue is absolutely stunning, and is purpose built for weddings; (4) Tom being there EVERY time we visited Glasson! (5) They were always very reasonable in our negotiations, and were incredibly fair in the way that they dealt with the late cancellations; (6) The breakfast (both mornings) was absolutely outstanding, and as good, if not better, than anything we had on our mini-moon; (7) The rooms were superb, were incredibly clean, and beautifully designed. The bathrooms were outstanding and the heated tiles are a huge plus; (8) The food at every juncture was simply amazing - the amount of complements we have received on the food since the wedding has been incredible. The vol-au-vents and beef in particular were outstanding. It really is Glasson's trump card; (9) The French wine was the best we have ever had at a wedding, and 2-3 people have also commented to this effect; (10) The "performance" of the sparkling wine popping ceremony for us - it was greatly appreciated and worked out very well; (11) The table planning process was very easy for us indeed, and the layout on the day worked superbly well; (12) The buzz in the bar upon our arrival was electric - if you could bottle that buzz you could make a fortune; (13) The staff in the residents' bar were very easy-going and friendly and were very accommodating towards the few people who had a little too much to drink; (14) The late time for breakfast the next morning was greatly appreciated; (15) The reception area and fireplace were brilliant areas the next morning for saying goodbye to people - it was so relaxing; (16) Everything was left aside professionally for us the next morning - the cake, the flowers, the presents, the bill. And there were no surprises with the bill; (17) The owner offered to go to pick up Hazel's bag when we thought we had left it behind us - the owner offered straight away and it showed to me the care and dedication they had towards our wedding party. The three things that make Glasson the best wedding venue in the country, in our optinion, are: (A) Service - family-run feel to the hotel and everyone meets the highest standards; (B) Venue - absolutely stunning and purpose built for a wedding; (C) Food - second to none. It brings a smile to our face just remembering everything we loved about Glasson. I know every couple is probably biased about their wedding day and their wedding venue; but we are 100% sure that it was the perfect venue for both of us.

We would highly recommend Glasson Country House Hotel as a wedding venue. We are so grateful to Gareth, Robin and their team for producing for us such a smoothly run day. Both my husband and I were relaxed and confident that we had nothing to worry about which is exactly what you need and we were right. The day went without a problem and the service was of the highest standard. We couldn't of asked for a more professional and accommodating team to take care of all our needs. I would tell any bride and groom to seriously consider choosing Glasson.

We were so well looked after, that we really didnt have to worry about the day, once the big things like church, venue and invites were sorted. We pretty much let Robin guide us and how to make the most of our day and it felt easy. The food is always top class and sometimes i forget (as i know it well) how stunning a location Glasson really is. All our guests couldnt believe there was a venue of this quality in the midlands.

I am originally from Brazil and my dreamy wedding was always to be a simple rustic one in the country side. I had visited a few places to find the perfect venue and I dropped a few offers down because I didn`t find what I was exactly looking for. After a further and overwhelming research (looking on Google Maps for places around lakes! haha) I found Glasson. I went to Glasson together with my husband (my fiancé at the time :D) and as soon as I got at the gate of that hotel I knew straight away that it would be the right place for me. The viewing of the lake is picturesque, and it has the simplicity and the charming comfort that a country house can offer to you. I didn`t need to worry about any decoration either as I thought the venue was beautiful in the way it was. Still, they provided us extra candles for the stairs, the flowers (lilies) for the tables (they are my favourite), some lovely basic stands with satin ribbons and little hearts and the board for the table plan! (of course it is up to you if you want to add any extra personal touch).The bedrooms are absolutely beautiful, big, clean and comfortable! The manager, Gareth, is a sweetheart! He worked out to give us the best deals for our civil ceremony and anything that I needed (I mean ANYTHING) I could count on him for it. The staff were super friendly and super helpful. The owners of the hotel were there too, and they are lovely as well! Food wise: delicious!!! Couldn’t fault anything and my guests were really impressed with it. (I heard that it was the best wedding they had been so far!!!) They served us big portions of everything!!! I can’t thank them enough for everything they did for us! On the next day, we were blessed with a beautiful blue sky and we organised a delicious bbq for the guests that stayed for the extra night. Everything that the hotel provided was perfect. I loved the place and I can strongly recommend it to anyone that love a rustic place with a twist of simplicity, elegance and nature at the same time! It is worth it going there for a viewing and to their wedding fair. Another tip: try to contact their local suppliers! They have the best prices around Athlone! I got my flowers at Dooley’s and I saved over 50% compared to most popular places. ? Thank you Glasson Hotel and team!!! Jordana and Nick Doyle

From the moment we booked glasson, staff were the most helpful and accomodating group i have ever come across. We booked a year in advance on recomendation from a friend of a friend and could not have been happier. I (the bride) felt like an absolute princess from the first day and carried right through till the day after, your hospatility is second to none and i mean that. Couldnt believe it when i left the room for the church (in a mess as bridsmaids/brides do!!) and came back later to find it immaculate and complimentary luxury goods from glasson, honestly its little things like that that make a brides day even more special than it already is! i cant say enough for gareth (ur a star), robin (food was AMAZING, golf carts you arranged to bring us down to the jetti were Ciaran and the groomsmens highlight!!!!), Fidelma, Louise and all the staff, honestly i cannot say enough about all of you! Even nanny cotter was impressed about the accomodating service you gave her, thanks, means alot! and you kept my bridal boquet alive and well for me to take home! ha! Well we're off now on honeymoon, but honestly for any brides-to-be who are looking at venues its amazing, and for a weddng, you lot made it the most hassle free day i've ever had, and that's not easy to say after weeks of planning a wedding day! thanks again, see you next year for the renewal! ha!

It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with your team at Glasson Country Hotel and Golf Club in the build-up to our wedding on the 27th of October 2011. Special mention to Robin who has been amazing and helped a lot with last minute details. The venue and service is top notch and the food was sublime.Feedback from all our guests was excellent, all complimented our choice of location and the fantastic service and staff of the Glasson Country House hotel. For many of whom had never been to Athlone, or Ireland, before it was the best possible introduction and the perfect setting for this memorable day and idyllic backdrop of Lough Ree for our wedding photography.We highly recommend the Glasson Country House Hotel.Many thanks

Hi Gareth/Robin and all at Glasson, Just a quick note to say thanks so much for a wonderful day on the 1st July. The service and attention we received on the day was second to none. Food was absolutely amazing and the feedback from all our guests has been so positive . Many of them have said straight up " that it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding." We go along with this view! We have actually met people in Galway who were not at the wedding that heard that the food was fabulous! The service during the meal , at the bar and in the residents bar was excellent. Nothing seemed like too much trouble. The venue looked amazing in the glorious sunshine that day and it was brilliant to be able to have the arrivals reception outside on the lawns. I would also like to thank Tom the owner for dropping up to us at the top table during the meal ...Nice touch and much appreciated. The dance floor was full of people dancing all night and the band commented how they liked playing there. The bedrooms were fabulous and all were commenting on the great views and the general comfort . The morning after breakfast was excellent . All and all we would recommend Glasson to anyone we know and I know that you will get plenty of repeat business as a result of the show you put on. We had people from Galway,Cavan,Cork,Dublin and Abroad and all commented that it was the best wedding they had been at . Also we would like to thank Cathriona/Marie and all the staff at reception for all the help prior to the wedding with room bookings and for being so friendly and attentive to all our guests over the couple of days.

Dear Gareth, Again, we wish to thank you, Robin and all of the hotel staff for the care and professionalism shown during our reception on 28 July. Everything went perfectly on the day - the meal was wonderful, staff were attentive and courteous and all of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the event. The accommodation was also top quality. We have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to anyone interested in finding a very special venue for a wedding reception or other important event. Kind regards,

Gareth, Thanks very much to yourself, Robin and all the Reid family. You ensured everything was perfect for us on the day. In particular the food on the day was excellent. Any of the guests we’ve spoken to since have all complimented the food and service on the day. Personally, the food was the best I’ve ever had a wedding. It was served to a high standard restaurant quality to all guests – which was some achievement considering there was almost 250 guests! It was a pleasure dealing with you and all the staff. The staff at Glasson Golf Club were extremely helpful with all our requests and queries in the run up to our big day. Everything went absolutely perfectly on the day, and we are very grateful to Glasson Golf club for making this happen for us. We had an absolutely wonderful day. Our overall experience with Glasson Golf club was very positive and we would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to friends and family for future weddings and other events. Thanks again for everything,

We had our wedding reception for 100 guests at Glasson in December, with most people staying in the hotel overnight - we all had a fantastic time. Service - It’s a Family run business, with a friendly and cohesive staff. Fidelma, Gareth and the team were fantastic in organising the reception, as we did things remotely from the UK. They were always responsive and resourceful in sorting things out for us. The service on the day could not have been better. Robin was a star, quietly and efficiently ensuring everything ran smoothly and got lots of special mentions from our guests. It was a busy time for them with four weddings in a row and everything seemed to go like clockwork.Hotel & views - The location has great views over the lake and very picturesque especially for the photos. The hotel was clean and very comfortable. Food & wine - We chose wintery soup (celeriac and parsnip) and salmon for starters, beef and monkfish for the main. Lots of our guests (some of whom were local farmers!) chose the beef and it got thumbs up all the way, especially when they offered seconds. At the tasting session we met the head chef Shelia and she was so helpful in advising on the menu and accommodated our guests’ dietary requirements. They were in the middle of changing the wine list so the options were a bit limited at the time with regards reds, and so they agreed to us sourcing our own red which was very much appreciated. Breakfast was of a very high standard. From our experience we would highly recommend Glasson as a venue for wedding receptions.

Dear Glasson Golf, We hope you are well and as prosperous as ever. Afshin and myself wish to exclaim immense gratitude for our wonderful wedding reception held on December 28th 2010. From the initial booking to the actual day we felt very welcome and truly special. The service was thoroughly professional but all communication was delivered in a very personable manner. The setting was perfect and suited our wedding very well, I felt proud of our choice. It really made our wedding vision a reality. The reception room itself was a brides dream capturing sophisticated decoration in a classic olde world surround. It is a challenge to convey our thoughts on the meal itself in this short email however without a doubt every guest we have spoken to was very impressed with the food.. most people had or tried to get seconds.! Please pass on this message to Sheila who advised us so well prior to the day. The quality of the produce was supreme. Thank you for looking after the day and helping our guests arrange their travel. Some guests, in particular (Michelle USA and Catriona from Scotland) were very grateful for all your help. Finally the Egan and Nasoodi families wish to pass on their thanks and will be returning in the future. Afshin and I wish to Thank Tom, Breda, Gareth, Fidelma, Sheila, Reception, Catering, waiter and bar staff at Glasson Golf for making our reception so memorable and special. We send our best wishes and hope you continue to be so successful, Fondly

Glasson is a perfect wedding venue that really pulled out a perfect day for us. We're so grateful to everyone there for all their work and all of our guests were delighted too. The first wonderful surprise is the view that you get on entering the grounds. It truly is spectacular. The foreigners that came from Italy, Japan, USA, etc., all were stunned too at the vista over the lake and the lovely village nearby. Simply wonderful. The food was fantastic. We had Caesar Salad, Carrot and Corriander Soup, Lemon Sole or Beef for the main course and a selection of desserts. The food was all excellant and, again, all of our guests were very impressed. We have to say, we've been to many weddings with disappointing, industrial service, rubbery beef or dessicated salmon; rest assured you won't find anything like that here. The service was professional and friendly without at any stage being intrusive. In particular, the staff gave us a lot of great advice on the format of the day, speeches, cutting the cake, wine, etc., as well as the menu. We're indebted to them. We stayed in the hotel. The rooms are lovely, comfortable with very nice views in many of them. It's certainly a good place to stay with a large or small group. In particular, if you play golf (or if your friends or family do), then you won't get anywhere better than this. We don't play, but many of our friends enjoyed the picturesque golf course and the nice walk to clear the cobwebs from the night before. A small point to remember, but one that was important to us, is the location. Glasson is equidistant from Dublin and Galway (where we're from) but with the motorway it's really only an hour from either. It also proved very accessible as a result to people coming from Wexford, Dundalk, Belfast and Limerick, as it's in the middle of Ireland. Overall a great night and a great stay.

We had our wedding in September 2010 and cannot praise Glasson, Gareth and all of the staff highly enough. They were all extremely professional and best of all genuinely friendly. They made Paddy and I as well as all of our friends and family very welcome. We were very relaxed as the staff took care of everything, down to always ensuring that I had a glass of champagne in my hand! The setting is exceptional. I stayed the night before my wedding and watching the sun rise over the lake from my balcony is one of the many highlights from that day. Gareth, David, Judith and the rest of the staff at Glasson, a very big thank you for making our day the best it could possibly be.

We had our wedding at the Glasson Golf Club on August 20th. It was the best day we could have ever wished for and it was made all the more special because we chose the Glasson. The venue, location and scenery are all spectacular – but what really had our guests talking were the service and the food. The meal was top quality and some commented it was the best meal they have ever had at a wedding. The staff could not do enough for us or our guests and made us all feel extremely special. What sets the Glasson apart is that you are not just another wedding to them; they go all out to make sure every moment of the day is special. The new wedding venue is so different to anything I’ve seen before, the light coming through the room, and the fact that the guests don’t have to moved after dinner as the dancefloor is separate, it’s little touches like this that add to the flow of the day. David Cahill in the Glasson said to me a few days before the wedding to leave it all in their hands and relax on the day and they kept their word and more, I was a very relaxed bride and could join in the celebrations while the staff ran everything on time. I cannot recommend the Glasson highly enough and if you’re considering it for your wedding don’t hesitate, you’ll have the best day ever.

Just back from staying at Glasson Hotel checking it out for our Wedding on 20/05/2011. We'll all I can say is I cant wait, From the amazing function room to the breath taking views to the excellent and professional staff, We are delighted that we have booked Glasson. There was also a wedding on the Saturday nite that we stayed and all the wedding guests could not complement the food enough.We also ate both nights between the retaurant and bar it was mouth watering I would recommend for starter Tiger prawns wrapped in filio pastry on bed of fresh salad and chilli sause. Yum The steak too. If you are thinking of booking Glasson for your Wedding stop and just book it it was that good.

Dear Gareth On behalf of � and myself I would like to thank you and your Staff for looking after us so well at our daughters Wedding to�. From the moment we arrived on the Friday until we left on Sunday I couldn�t fault anything. Your Staff are warm, very professional, nothing was too much bother to them. The location is so beautiful but that on it�s own would not have worked. The food was excellent both at the Reception on Friday and the barbecue on Saturday. Please congratulate your staff on our behalf and course you yourself �take a bow� as all these qualities flow from the top. Again our sincere thanks, all our guests had a ball.

Got married last weekend in Glasson Golf Hotel and feel so strongly about the whole experience that I wanted to share even though I rarely post. It was without doubt the best ever and I'm sure that most people say that about their big day but the feedback from our guests has blown us away, even our video man said that it was the best wedding he had been to all year! Hotel looked amazing with the beautiful views and building. The scenary is fab with the red sky during the speeches and then a full moon over the lake was just beautiful. The staff were just unbelieveable. It really comes accross that it is a family run show as there is such great attention to detail and they were so friendly. Reception, this was brill. Even though the rain came, we got photos taken and when we made it to the reception, the atmosphere was outta this world. We booked a local trad band and the drinks were flowing so that was a great start. Meal, all I'll say is the food was great (lemon sole and roast beef).....yum yum :hyper: Dancing, I believe there were some concerns over the dance floor. Well ladies let me put your mind at rest. It was packed from start to finish! We had the lols band from moate who were class. The position of the dance floor was perfect. The fact that it was beside one of the bars meant even the non dancing bar holding up men were dragged to the floor O-O Girls the craic was MIGHTY, and I'll be back for all my new sister in laws future weddings.

We got married at Glasson Golf Club & Hote lthere less than a week ago and I have to say that is the most amazing venue and it was better than I ever hoped for! we had looked at loads of venues from Dublin to Westport and I have to say Glasson topped them all. For starters it was the only venue that I have been to that the amazing views can be seen from the FUNCTION room. we found most other places tuck you away in a room with either no view or else no windows. our guests were able to enjoy the views not only during the reception drinks but also right the way through the meal up untill it got dark which wasnt till about ten or so. Our photographer was delighted too as there were so many photo op's in the grounds. we are dying to see the pics as we now that they will be gorgeous! secondly- the food was absolutely fantastic! we also went with the sole and beef choice and everybody was commenting on how tasty it was. we were so impressed that we got the chef ( Sheila) to come out and take a bow during the speeches! :wv Even the next morning at breakfast we were impressed by the food. we also had a BBQ the next day which went down a treat with all the guests. The staff - from the barman to the manager, couldnt do enough for either ourselves or our guests. They really did do everything to ensure that our day went without any hitches and that we enjoyed every minute of it. From arranging babysitters for our guests to coping with last minute changes to plan and requests they did everything with a smile. The layout of the functionroom is great as all guest can see you from their tables and also they all have a view which keeps the ones at the back happy! there was loads of room for the band to set up on and only a few tables had to be moved for the dancing for which there was lots of! the position of the dance floor worked out fine and as Pebbles3 said it was great not to loose the men who like to stand by the bar! so finally for anyone who has booked their wedding there - dont worry it will be the best day ever! I am so jealous that mine is over :o( and for anyone who is still looking for a venue - it is definitely worth checking out - at least three couple at my wedding asked would I mind if they used it for their big day! Im just glad il have an excuse to go back!
