Wedding 23rd Feb 2023
We celebrated our Thursday Wedding at Glenlo Abbey in February 2023 and could not recommend it enough. The hotel is stunning with beautifully kept grounds, so whatever the weather, you are guaranteed a nice backdrop for the wedding photos. While the function room is smaller than most, it did not matter as the team ensured the layout of the tables worked well for our number of guests. The food was top notch and our guests kept talking about how much they loved the meal and how nice the staff were. Wedding Coordinator Kate and her team could not do enough for us, they were professional and welcoming and overall wonderful to deal with during the planning process. We cannot wait to come back every year to celebrate our anniversary!

We had our wedding in Glenlo Abbey Hotel In November 25th 2022 and what can I say but absolutely wow it was a dream everything was perfect from the decorations to everything in-between the staff were unbelievably helpful on the day everyone was well looked after the food was incredible the decorations at Christmas for our Christmas wedding was outstanding kate and the team were so incredible to deal with everyone is still going on about the hotel and what a stunning venue it is soo it is definitely a core memory for sure the only thing I'd say is we originally invited €160 guest and 120 came and the room was the perfect size for 120 anything over that would of been abit crampt but gleno Abbey exceeded our expection and I can't wait to go back for one year wedding anniversary ?

Lovely staff , the day was excellently managed we had time together while still not delaying the plan of the day. The venue was ideal for kids as the green to the back is visible from the drink reception while also being tucked away from the car park . All in all Kate and the team were so easy to work with and would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to book a wedding .

Our journey with The Glenlo Abbey started long before we even got engaged when the hotel was showcasing wedding flowers. We were met by the wedding co-ordinator at that time. He did not flinch when we explained our situation. As a result of the professionalism and kindness that day, we didn't even look at any other venue when our engagement did happen. Kate was very helpful and no question or request seemed to be too much. She was very easy to reach when in work. We were introduced to Nicky, our meal co-ordinator soon before the wedding and he really did try and do anything that we asked. We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone who is engaged and looking for a beautiful venue.

Could not recommend this hotel & staff enough. Kate, the wedding planner & Oisin, professional & all communication before & during the wedding was prompt. The whole wedding party were treated as royalty. I as the bride, was extremely relaxed & enjoyed every moment of my wedding from landing to the venue until leaving the next day. The food was outstanding & all the guests could not have been happier. The guests that stayed over night, never stopped talking about how unbelievable the rooms were but especially their beds, the comfort of the mattress & pillows. Grounds of the hotel are just unbelievable as the inside setting of the hotel! I could not thank the staff enough. I can not wait to back for our 1year anniversary. I also visited the hotel during Christmas time & it is like a winter wonderland. Amazing.

Getting married in Glenlo Abbey was absolutely magical. The venue, the service and the decor (particularly at Christmas) blew our guests away. The wedding coordinator, Kate Kilroy, is superb at her job, she is the ultimate professional and she was the most approachable and kind person to deal with throughout the planning process. Kate ensured our wedding day was everything we wanted and more. She went above and beyond in every way. On the day, everything was meticulously managed. The food was delicious, the service was impeccable and the room was immaculate! We are so happy we got married in Glenlo Abbey.

We had the MOST Amazing day at the Hlenlo Abbey. Kate and the team went above and beyond to tend to our every need. We had a small wedding of 30 and every person there felt so well looked after. It was so laid back and relaxed, just what we wanted. We had our ceremony in the abbey, it was absolutely stunning. I would 100% reccomend this venue for a wedding. If you are looking for 5 star service and luxury then this is the place for you.

We had our wedding in August in Glenlo Abbey. It massively exceeded our expectations and it was down to the massive efforts and commitment of all the staff at Glenlo Abbey hotel. We had our ceremony in Glenlo itself in the Corrib Suite. It was a very rainy day unfortunately and the staff were very accommodating ensuring that I did not have one raindrop on me before I entered (which was not an easy task!) I was greeted by our wedding coordinator (Valerie) and general manager (Ronan) Both were absolutely wonderful throughout. The ceremony was beautiful and Valerie’s attention to detail meant that this went off without a hitch ! They presented the room beautifully! Following on after the ceremony we greeted all of our family and friends and we were presented with some lovely champagne by Valerie. We had our reception drinks in the French Room which was just gorgeous - access was also available to the abbey itself and whiskey room! This added to the entire experience! We had a prosecco and beers and we also added a gin and tonic stand which everyone loved. The canapés were so tasty and everyone enjoyed them. They were so nice that they were all finished before we got there , however the staff were so attentive and ensured that myself and my (now) husband had canapés as well as our family members after completion of the photos. We didn’t get an opportunity to have photos with the photographer during reception drinks due to the weather unfortunately, but this was a blessing as we were able to converse with everyone and enjoy our guests company. When Valerie recommended we call for dinner she invited myself and my husband for a glass of champagne at the bar to have a moment for ourselves ! Lovely touch. The Photographer and videographer were very opportunistic and we got plenty of shots there as well. Then our terrific wedding coordinator Valerie suggested we use the cinema room which was amazing for more photos. Then the meal !!!!! Wow !!!! Starters : goats cheese mousse with beetroot and walnuts, followed by roasted pepper soup and fillet sea bass and a chocolate tart. We had so many compliments about the food and it was the highlight for everyone !! Staff were extremely attentive and constantly filling glasses for wine. For turnover we decided to have a cheese wheel cake. And this was kindly served by the staff during turnaround and that was a big hit !! Dom the head chef was amazing throughout the entire process with excellent suggestions and delivered the perfect meal for every guest on the day We had more amazing photos around the venue including the famous orient express train! We have had so many compliments about the venue and we already can’t wait to come back!!! One big concern for me prior to the wedding was my father in law who has poor mobility. Glenlo were amazing and as they promised access and transport around the venue went smoothly throughout the day ! They took care of everything! I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives and I genuinely think this was down to the absolute attention to fine detail provided by all the amazing staff at Glenlo !

Destination Wedding Ireland We had our destination wedding at the Glenlo and it exceeded all expectations. It is a bit nerve wracking having a destination wedding at a venue you have never seen prior, but the team made it seamless! We have been to Ireland a few times, but never to the Glenlo. When we researched venues we feel in love with it online and after our initial call, there was no question about having our wedding there. They are quick to respond which is important when you are planning from far away. Also the place is so beautiful you really do not need extra decorations which makes you save money and makes your life a lot easier. The team is wonderful to work with- Valerie, you made a supposedly stressful day absolutely stress free for us. Thank you! We had our ceremony in the Abbey, dinner in the River Room and our reception in the Dagan room. It worked out perfectly! The food and drinks were wonderful. My only tip would be to ask the couple what drinks may be popular as our group drinks Jameson like water and unfortunately they ran out of Jameson before the ceremony even started. Was not a big deal as there were other options, but maybe something to do for future weddings. All in all I have not stopped raving about how amazing this venue and team are. I would get married there again ten times over and cannot wait to be back to visit so we can stay at the Glenlo again!

Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate was the venue for our wedding. The venue is amazing and provides the perfect back drop to the big day. The team at Glenlo Abbey Hotel are fantastic to work with. During the planning phase of the wedding they helped us in every way possible and accommodated all our requests. On the day, staff were attentive to us and most importantly our guest's needs, in many cases going above and beyond the call of duty. We had a perfect Wedding Day at Glenlo Abbey Hotel and Estate and highly recommend it to all.

We had our wedding party at Glenlo Abbey on 24 May 2019. From our first meeting with Natalie we knew that’s the place as were shown perfect professionalism, attention to details and personal approach in a very discrete and polite manner. Everything was perfectly organised and went very smoothly at the wedding taking place in three different suites/halls of the Abbey. From the very beginning till the end our guests and ourselves were made feel special. Everything was precisely considered and performed leaving our guests with memories of being part of something exceptional. Food was amazing and all the guests are massively impressed and happy, we’re still receiving compliments. The reason for that is, in our opinion, not only the expertise the team has, but the personal approach they have to people. Personally we enjoyed most the relaxed and easy atmosphere, which is the most difficult part and it’s all the team. Behind our smooth running party is their perfectly running team work. We had never expected that a busy day like this can be turned into what it’s meant to be - our happiest one but at Glenlo Abbey they made the day of our wedding our happiest day. We’ll definitely celebrate more special occasions there or will just return for the atmosphere and experience.

Highly recommend this venue. Not only is it in a stunning location but the staff are incredible. I organised my wedding from abroad and I did not have to do a single thing on the day. Everything was taken care of. Everyone knows exactly what they are doing and many of my guests who were staying in the Gleno for the weekend were on first name basis with many of the staff. In the lead up to the big day Valerie was so responsive and great on email. We had as many phone calls as I wanted. Nothing was too difficult and no question was silly. It was a complete pleasure to deal with this venue. Goes without saying that the food was awesome !

My husband and I were married at Glenlo Abbey Hotel and cannot be more impressed with the hotel & staff! They made sure everything was perfect from check-in to check-out. We are American so it was a little dubious planning everything from so far away but the wedding manager, Valerie, was very responsive and always put my mind at ease when I had 10000+ questions I needed answered. As an event planner myself it was difficult not to personally check in on every detail on our wedding day so just knowing Valerie was there put me at ease so I could enjoy myself. For any brides considering this venue- the bridal suite was large enough to comfortably get ready with my 6 bridesmaids, hair & make-up artist + photographer; if your party is larger no problem! Mark and his team were also amazing, the food was perfect, bar service superb, there is absolutely nothing I would change. Aside from our perfect wedding, Glenlo Abbey Hotel was fantastic, we loved having a beautiful breakfast each morning. We spent a good amount of time in the Palmer bar which had a great range of whiskeys and cocktails to choose from. We will definitely be back!!

From planning our special day up to checking out as newlyweds, every detail of our experience at Glenlo Abbey was exceptional. I have never felt more welcome and at ease in any hotel before. Front desk staff were extremely friendly, almost as though I was family. I was made to feel so comfortable from day 1 and no question was too silly to ask. On our day itself, well where do I begin! Valerie was fantastic, and really took it all in her hands and made sure the day ran smoothly! We were made feel like royalty by waiting staff, who introduced themselves by name and told us they would be looking after everything we need for the evening. The bar staff, in particular Aaron in the downstairs bar, made us feel like close friends and we were able to relax and enjoy our night. Overall an absolutely amazing experience, all of my guests said it was the staff at GlenloAbbey that just made the day! They truly were the cherry on top of what was a beautiful day in a fabulous location! We cannot wait to come back again very soon!

Our wedding was absolutely magical. The staff at Glenlo abbey are so professional and know exactly what is needed to ensure a wedding goes smoothly. The wedding coordinator finished working at Glenlo the week before our wedding, which left us a little stress out and worried as we planned the wedding completely from the USA, but thankfully the manager Jennifer was on site to help with everything. The food and drinks were delicious and the place is very tastefully decorated! I heard nothing but good reports back from all my wedding guests! The rooms were huge. Very comfortable and with a beautiful view also. Overall, I would highly recommend Glenlo abbey to any couple who is considering having their wedding here.

We got married in Glenlo Abbey last March. We had such a fantastic day, this was mainly down to the wedding co-ordinator Cathy. She kept us calm and left no stone unturned. She assured us everything would go smoothly, and that it did. The food was superb food, with excellent service throughout the day. The function room was decorated beautifully and was very intimate for our Wedding of 170 guests. The grounds are beautiful and perfect for photos. We would definitely recommend Glenlo Abbey for your special day!

I cant recommend this hotel highly enough. The staff are amazing and are really welcoming. From the first time when we showed up on a Sunday evening (on a whim without an appointment) I knew this was the place. The staff member ( cant remember her name - dame it) really took a long time showing us around and telling us all the info. Not everyplace will even take the time to say hello if you don't have an appointment and this really stood out for me. The setting is lovely, lovely open fires, relaxed atmosphere ( which is what we were after on our day) and this place had it in abundance but for me the overriding factor was the staff themselves. They were so nice and welcoming every time i came in and by the end of the day itself i knew nearly all of them by their first names. The whole process was seamless and Cathy and Claire were a joy to deal with as wedding coordinators. The staff there really are a credit to the management. PS the food is top notch too

Glenlo was a spectacular venue for our wedding. We had many guests staying at the hotel and all comments were outstanding. Service, style, professionalism and quality were impeccable. I work in the service industry and had high expectations, these were superceded by the entire team at Glenlo for the entire 3 day stay. The venue is immaculate with a very personal yet professional manner. I couldn't recommend them more.

Hi Treasa and Rob, What a great review :) Thanks so much.

We got married in the abbey of the glenlo on the 18th September 2015. We initially booked the glenlo in October 2013 where we were shown around for more than an hour and were talked through all the different packages by a member of staff. What stuck out most was the fact that they didn't know we were going to book this venue but spent all of the time and effort going through everything and answering all our questions with great patience! At first we were dealing with Christine our first wedding co-ordinator who was absolutely fantastic but went on to get a different job and then comes Cathy who from the get go was an absolute pleasure to deal with and so helpful. To say she has great patience is an understatement. She was there in the days coming up to the wedding putting me at ease when my table plan was all over the place and giving me loads of ideas for different things to do etc. On the day the staff couldn't do enough Geraldine and Alex especially (and obviously Cathy! ) they helped fix everything down to printing off my readings when I left them at home and was already on my way! Oh and thanks Alex for giving me that mint so I could be nice and fresh walking up the aisle to my new husband! The venue is out of this world it's like stepping on to the set of Downton abbey and has all the class and luxury of the 5 stars it deserves the grounds alone would sell it for anyone. I can't describe it the way it deserves there's so much to say. The dining room where we had our meal is perfect for around 130 guests which is what we had and the layout is loverly it's not too small and not too big. Since they have done it up its beautiful especially the balcony outside with a view of the corrib and the pullman express. There s also a downstairs bar and a little room off it where the kids can go so no big q's for the bar and a room where the kids can run wild! Our bridal suite was beautiful with a lovely bottle of proseco and two glasses with some shortbread waiting for us when we went up. There was a four poster bed and also a sitting room off the main bedroom we wish we stayed for a week instead of a night! I also have to mention the porters who were so helpful in helping my florist and I see up the sweet table and decorations the night before thanks for all your help! To sum up this very long post if I could get married all over again I wouldn't change one bit. The glenlo abbey is in a world of its own beautiful hotel lbeautiful grounds and wonderful staff. Thank you so much for making our day extra special Leona and gary duffy

We had great communication with the wedding coordinators as they were there for us anytime and went through everything with us step by step and also accommodated for guests with special dietary requirements. We used the grounds of Glenlo for our wedding pictures and they came out better than we could have ever dreamed. All our guests really enjoyed the day and night.

I can't thank Glenlo enough. Everything was perfect on our day. The food was excellent, as was the service. Cathy Melia did an amazing job overseeing everything and ensuring that it was perfect. For the bridal party, I'd recommend that you get your photographer to take any family photos in one of the beautiful rooms inside so maybe run that by the hotel in advance.

Our day was beyond magical. We knew after meeting with Cathy, we had chosen the perfect place for our wedding venue. Cathy and her team were extremely professional and attentive. Our family and friends that travelled from Canada, Scotland and England said it was the most beautiful wedding that they had ever attended. Hearing those words meant the world to my husband I. We are so appreciative of the service and the beauty of the Glenlo Abbey in completing our perfect day. Thank you again to Cathy and her team for exceeding our expectations on our wedding day.

Eimear the manager was amazing and was by our side anytime we needed her all day. We had some odd requests for the day and she and the staff were so accommodating and just brilliant. I would highly recommmend Glenlo for your wedding. Not just for the beauty of the hotel and the surrounds but for the professionalism, the friendliness and the helpful staff that work there! Can't wait to go back for our one year anniversary: 9th August 2009
