We had our wedding in The Glenside on 15th August 2022 and we were blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery and overall experience and it was just on our door step. We had a small intimate wedding and although the suite could cater for a much larger wedding the attention to detail and table set up made the room perfect for our guest numbers, without us looking lost in the room. Karen, Aogán and their amazing staff couldn't do enough for us. From the time we met with Aogán to the day after our wedding nothing was a hassle and everything went as perfect as it could. The staff on the day were nothing but helpful and friendly and nothing any of guests asked was to much trouble. We genuinely couldnt praise them enough, they really went above and beyond for us, to setting up a beautiful memorial table for my brother's picture, to doing up a sweet table for our smaller guests and other tiny personal touches. We planned our wedding in 3 months and Karen and Aogán made it effortless, they were always contactable with instant replies to emails. As a wedding venue we couldnt fault anything. The food was out of this world and all our guests commented on the quality and choice of food on offer. Myself and Jason can't thank you enough for making our day as special as it was.

Myself and my husband Andy got married there last week from start to finish no task was too big or small. Aogan and Karen were so helpful with everything and the personal touches to our room was a 100%. Their staff are a credit to them they spoke to us all on a personal level the food was amazing served by the best a special mention to Shirley who looked after my son who is autistic I had explained the situation and she made sure he was well looked after. Our great bar staff maya katie and Jennifer who looked after us all night we really got to know them on personal level too they were just so nice.

From when we got engaged we both knew it was going to be at the Glenside that we would get married and celebrate with our friends & family, it was never in doubt. From when we made the first appointment to start the ball rolling we were so impressed with the attention to detail, relaxed atmosphere with both the hotel owners and their staff, nothing was ever too much and honestly felt nothing was a problem for them. It was proved on our wedding day our guests were so impressed with the food and the room as were we. Highly & honestly recommend the Glenside Hotel for your wedding day, thanks again Karen & Aogan.

We had our wedding at the Glenside hotel on the 2 July 2022. I can not fault the Glenside in anything they were amazing. We had family and friends who stayed at the hotel from Scotland for the weekend and everyone said how the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. My mother in law never got her suitcase at Dublin airport and Christine at reception spent 2 hours on the phone trying to help her. The food was beautiful and loads commented this. They have wedding functions down to a T. Everyone from the owners to the person helping us Jennifer on our day was so helpful. The staff kept us on track all day . I really would book here again if I needed to. Everyone from management to waiting staff were amazing and friendly.

Every single person at the wedding said the food and staff where just out of this world so nice happy and bubbly. Myself and my husband can’t thanks Karen And Aogan enough for all the planning they did to help make our day as special as it was we also can’t thank the rest of the staff enough they were unbelievable. The rooms and hotel has been done up and it is just fabulous. Anyone thinking of having a wedding or getting married would be mad not to pick this hotel or even just for a nights stay or even bite to eat highly highly recommended Thank you again Mr & Mrs Dunphy

Our Wedding Day ?? We had our wedding on Friday 20th of May 2022. It was a wonderful experience. Which went way beyond what we imagined it would be. From our first meeting with Karen and Aogán until the moment we left Saturday afternoon we were treated to an experience that can only be described at 5-Star ???? The ceramony was beautifully arranged to a high standard. Our 5 course meal was fantastic and served effortlessly by the hotel's brilliant staff, with a special thanks to Shirley who was one of the very special ladies who helped make our day beyond perfect. The rooms were clean comfortable and classy. It also has a very picturesque garden which is perfect for children to play and adult's to relax. It was without doubt a 5-Star experience would highly recommend for your wedding day, just as you want it ?? Robert & Pauline

We went for the all inclusive package and everything was covered. our photographer, the cake to the coverings in the room it all felt like a fairytale. Nothing was out of reach for us. many many emails phone calls back and forth and we always felt as special as we dis even we had first booked our original wedding date. everything ran so smoothly. all of our family and friends were blown away by the food the room and over all atmosphere. a special mention to Jennifer and Shirley who made sure we remembered all the bits that go with the day. 10 stars review. thank you all again for the most amazing day.

We got married and celebrated our wedding in the Glenside hotel. We couldn’t recommend them enough they were absolutely brilliant not just on the day but from our very first meeting. Clair the wedding coordinator is such a lovely lady in between our meets if there was any changes with restrictions due to covid she was straight on the phone to us to reassure us that everything was ok and to update us. We had our photos taking on the grounds of the hotel the gardens are beautiful and the food was absolutely fabulous. They went above and beyond to make our day so special they really went the extra mile. I would suggest to anyone that is considering getting married or celebrating there to definitely go for it you won’t be disappointed. Clair and the team at the Glenside are absolutely amazing at what they do.
