Firstly and most important I just want to say an absolute huge thank you to the AbbeyCourt Hotel Nenagh - and all their staff ( Jenny & Her assistant Rachel ) . You really out did our expectations, and all the last minute changes and requests we had etc . Everything went like a dream - from the moment of meeting I knew we would be looked after and more importantly cared for , the whole day was fabulous .... and it looked amazing .i also want to say a huge thank you to Ray who continued the superb support the whole weekend - nothing was ever too much trouble, and again the second night was absolutely fantastic- an Indian themed night which was a first for the hotel , but which you took on and embraced with no trouble or issues at all ... the setting the vibe the atmosphere, and off course Chef - the food was amazing the whole weekend and the Indian night went down so well . Not forgetting the girls on reception and Breda and team during the meal . From start to finish the attention to detail in everything was outstanding . The attention to ourselves were incredible to say you made us us feel amazing and special from start to finish is an understatement. Every single one of our guests as we sent them on their way at the end had two things to say ..,, how personal and welcoming everyone was made to feel throughout and how fantastic the set up - decor / food / service was throughout. The choice off packages and food was spectacular we literally had anything we wanted and more ..... and more we did with our second night being an Indian night with my husband from Punjab Chef out did himself a banquet feast of delicious foods and specialties from the region - everything new to the norm on your selections, but again there wasn’t even a question of it being done as nothing was problem . I have to say it’s been one of the best Indian meals Ive had - and the surprise desert specifically from Girjeets home region went down a treat One thing we wanted for our guests was unlimited wine across the wedding banquet and the Indian banquet and with your amazing “ FREE “ corkage it meant we could do this and with the wines of our choice . I literally don’t have the words to say how amazing the Hotel have been and much they did for Us and how this made us relax and be able to enjoy our weekend instead of worrying about little things Also how you work and co- ordinated with our other suppliers meant we had no worries the whole day Mary O Shea - humanist solomiser , you words your tone your presence was beautiful and kind and guided and facilitated us through some new elements to the service - from the first meeting I knew you were the right fit to being together so beautifully two Cultures two backgrounds and hep is blend too one Catherine Byrne - the ceremony singer , your voice and tone was so amazing and beautiful so easy to listen to and enjoy as soon as I heard you online I absolutely knew you the right choice Shamrock Bhangra - a Punjabi dance group , as a last minute request and a surprise for my husband . You added great fun to the evening ..... it was fantastic to watch not only you guys dance but all our guests join in and have such a laugh doing something totally new . It was also great to see my husband Gurjeet enjoy and embrace his own culture once he got over the surprise Midnight Sounds band - there’s not much I can say here other than a 6 piece band adds such great sound and atmosphere to any event - you kept the dance floor full from start to finish and leading onto the DJ after which was all part in parcel . A full dance floor I think says it all - the choice of music for such a range of age - you were fantastic Iryna Vasilkova Photography- I cant wait to see the pictures. Your attention to detail throughout and the way you continue to take natural unobtrusive pictures I’ve no doubt that there’s going to be lots of great moments caught unaware to ourselves and our guests Siobhan and team in solitude spa @ the hotel and Edel and team at Edels hair studio @ the hotel - you both along with with team made myself and the girls look and feel stunning It was great to have you there literally based in the hotel which allowed us keep everything nice easy and all in one place I’ve no doubt even as I write this that I’m forgetting something or someone - apologies if I have We can’t thanks you AbbeyCourt Hotel enough for truly making our special day become a spectacular weekend that we will truly remember forever ???? Lots of love Michelle & Gurjeet x

On our first meeting we knew this was the hotel for us. Jen always made us feel so welcome no ask was too big. At the time of booking we were living in Australia i was nervous about planning a wedding from so far away but she always kept us in the loop and made us very at ease. All our guests commented on how amazing the day was and they all complemented the food. There was a few comments saying they had never been to wedding with so much food. The attention to detail was outstanding from start to finish. Any problems,questions or worries we had were always dealt with quickly and professionally. Ray is such a gent and was so easy to relax around him we felt like we had always known him and he was one of the guests by the end of the day. I'd have no hesitation in recommending The Abbey Court Hotel they made our day hassle and stress free and we truly had the best day.

Wedding 18th Aug 2018
There are a lot of fantastic remarks to make about the Abbey Court, and we will address all of them below. In short: The Abbey Court in Nenagh made our dreams come true. We are both very particular, very perfectionist. We never thought it was possible, but the Abbey Court made it happen. We would have our wedding there again any day. Service was exceptional, food was unbelievable, decoration was divine, accommodation was perfect. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Everything about our wedding was unusual. With me (the bride) having Afghan origins and living in Germany, and John being Irish, we had to combine three different cultures. In addition, our guests came from all over the world and each brought their own customs into the mix as well. We had a lot of requests that were uncommon, to put it lightly. Furthermore, John and I don’t live in Ireland, so we had to organise everything from afar. We relied heavily on Ray Lynch, our “wedding manager”, and his team (Rachel Farrell, Jenny, Michael, David, to name only a few), spending hours on the phone going through details, and exchanging countless emails. And nothing was a problem. Everything was possible. Because Ray and his team made it possible. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Abbey Court made us, and our guests feel very special, almost like royalty or celebrities. And that was not just our impression. Every time any of our guests talks about our wedding to us, they make a point of emphasising how amazing the people in the Abbey Court were. In fact, we all liked it so much, that we’re planning to visit the Abbey Court again at our anniversary, together with a bunch of our friends, who immediately said “we’re coming with you!”. We can highly recommend the Abbey Court to any couple. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Food: Food and wine were exceptional, quality was great, and quantities were abundant. John and I have quite particular taste. We like good quality food that is a bit different, with a variety of spices and flavours, something that makes your taste buds dance. To make it more challenging, I have several food allergies and don’t eat pork for religious reasons. For us, the Abbey Court changed their menu. Ray and David (the head chef) sent us ideas by email, we gave them feedback, they made some adjustments, and the menu was set. They even got in halal meat for the Muslim guests, certificate and all. When we tried the food at the food tasting, we couldn’t believe how gorgeous it was! We didn’t change a thing. And yes, it was just as gorgeous at the wedding, for all the guests, not just the top table. Some of our friends are foodies, and more than one said, the food at our wedding was the best they’ve had at any other wedding. One particularly food crazy friend, and the best man no less, said it was “the best food he has ever eaten, not just at a wedding, ever anywhere”. No joke, that’s what he said, and he meant it just as he said it. The wine was gorgeous, too. We didn’t go for the house wine, because it didn’t appeal to our personal preferences. Instead, we picked a white and a red wine off the menu, mid-range priced, and it was excellent, not just “for the price”, it was a really good wine. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Decoration: Sometimes I think Ray can actually read minds. I tried (not very well, mind you) to describe what I had in my mind’s eye, saying things like “a bit like that, but not quite”, and very descriptive explanations like “it should look really classy and elegant”. I remind you, I am incredibly picky and particular. Ray sent me a few pictures with examples, got in touch with the florist for me to know exactly what flowers I was using for my bouquet, and had the florist send through a few pictures with different suggestions. Ray really managed to understand what my vision for the room was, before it was fully formulated in my own head. The end result on the day was stunning. The decoration was perfect. The feeling in the room was exactly what I had envisioned. I don’t know how Ray and Jenny, who is in charge of decorations, did that. But they did it. It was like a fairy tale, with incredible attention to detail. BTW, if you’re looking for a good florist, try Elizabeth Rose in Nenagh. It won’t get any better than that, trust me. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Accommodation: Most of our guests travelled from different countries to our wedding in Nenagh, and therefore stayed for at least four nights. Some of our guests stayed in the adjoining lodges, which is great fun if you have groups. It was quite the challenge for John and me to organise the allocation of the lodges, and at times we lost track of the latest version of the room plan. But Rachel Farrell made sure everything was recorded properly and pointed out inconsistencies on more than one occasion. If it hadn’t been for Rachel, the room allocation that we tried to organise might have ended up a mess. Thank you, Rachel! John and I had the Cantwell Suite, a stunning room that is perfect for the bride to get ready in on the morning of the wedding. It is very spacious, and you can take beautiful pictures in there. Our only regret: We never got around to using the jacuzzi! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Service: Imagine a five-star hotel, like in the movies, where the impossible is made possible. That’s what you get in the Abbey Court, but without the pretension. We basically hijacked the Abbey Court for the entire time we were there. As mentioned above, ourselves and our guests were looked after very well. Anything they needed, the hotel provided it to our guests. In one lodge there was an issue with the water pressure, it was fixed in no time. Because we had a lot of people coming at different times, it was not easy to keep track of who had and had not picked up their key for the lodges. But Allison and her team at reception were on top of it and never lost their nerve, even when we were running around like headless chicken. Reception was staffed 24 hours a day, and even when the bar closed, Patrick from reception looked after us. Patrick, thank you for all the drinks you served us until the (not so) small hours of the morning. We sincerely hope we didn’t get you into trouble! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Staff: There are many, many people who worked for us to make our dream wedding happen. We tried to remember all the names, but we’ll probably forget a few, and not know of even more people who worked behind the scenes. There was David, who cooked a meal for us that will be remembered by many people for a very long time. There was Jenny, who brought magic into the function room for us. There was Allison, who made sure all our guests had roofs over their heads. There was the best G&T mixer in the bar, whose name escapes me, but who makes the best Gunpowder Gin with a particular tonic (don’t worry, not spoiling your recipe!). There was Patrick, the night receptionist, who didn’t send us to bed, even though it was well past curfew. There was Michael, who looked after us especially on the day after and the day after that, making sure I (the bride) don’t forget to eat, bringing me a plate full of food. And, of course, there were Rachel Farrell and Ray Lynch, who helped us with the planning every step of the way, who were available whenever we needed them, responding to countless emails. And this is where we need to make a very big shout out for Ray, who was our main “wedding manager”, and who is absolutely exceptional. My brother said about Ray, “I first thought he’s just being nice, because it’s his job, but Ray actually is that nice for real!”. All the good things you have read about Ray are true, without exaggeration. We cannot imagine how we would have done it without Ray’s help. His reassurance that everything would be fine and that we didn’t need to worry, allowed us to organise our wedding from afar and not wonder, how things would be implemented on the scene. Through all the hours we spent planning our wedding, we really grew close. John and I can truly say, with Ray we have made a friend for life.

The Abbey Court Hotel were just amazing, especially Jennifer and Ray. From my very first interaction with them right through to the end of our special weekend. They were so professional, accommodating, kind and took a genuine interest in both me and my husband. I always felt like a valued customer, and my requests and needs were being listened to and provided for. They made our weekend very special, enjoyable and stress free and I cannot recommend them and thank them enough.

Our wedding could not have gone as well as it did if not for the brilliant work from Jenny and Ray, as well as the rest of the staff at the Abbey Court. They were helpful throughout the process, and full of knowledge, providing useful suggestions and explanations. Our requests and needs were always met; When we asked questions, we received recommendations and ideas, but we never felt pressure to go in any direction. In other words, they let us plan out our wedding the way we wanted, and they made it happen but they were sure to offer and advice or ideas when they were asked. Their suggestions were outstanding whether it was Ray recommending seabass or Jenny offering ideas with seating plans. Ray went out of his way to genuinely provide encouragement and offer friendly advice in the days leading up to the wedding. Both were always around and made time for us. We always felt we were treated with respect and dignity. They also did a magnificent job on the wedding day to make sure everything went smoothly. Everything worked like a well-oiled machine and we never had to worry or have doubts with the service. Our guests were also very thrilled with the experience. We absolutely recommend Jenny and Ray. They were nothing short of phenomenal.

We got married here on the 9th June 2018. After viewing a few different venues we decided that the Abbey Court Hotel was where we wanted to have our wedding reception for a number of reasons. They have a broad range of wedding packages to suit all “pockets”. Our first meeting was with Jenny and she was so agreeable with our every request. She ensured us that she would be with us every step of the way and indeed she was. Nothing was any bother to her. The staff were all very helpful and professional. Our wedding day was the most memorable day of our lives and this was definitely helped by all of the staff in the Abbey Court Hotel. The hotel looked after booking the car from the church and also all the fairy lights, table plan, centre pieces etc in the reception hall and there was no extra costs or hidden charges. On the day we were greeted by Ray and Jenny at the main door and they looked after our every need and Ray explained everything so thoroughly to us which helped keep us chilled and relaxed. We got some fantastic pictures around the hotel as they have a well manicured garden with beautiful blooming rose beds in June and the weather this Summer was very sunny so we got a great day weather wise. The reception food was excellent and plentiful. Prosecco and bottles of beer were also on hand. The food for the sit down meal was beautifully cooked and presented. We went for the top menu which was still good value and we didn’t regret it. Our guests couldn't stop complimenting about how gorgeous the food was, even the following morning at the breakfast, people were still commenting how nice the food was and how well it was presented. The service from every single member of staff we dealt with was top class. We had the most incredible day of our lives and we want to say a massive thank you to Jenny, Ray and everyone at the Abbey Court Hotel. We d highly recommend the Abbey Court hotel as a top wedding venue.

My, now, husband and I organised our wedding from Canada. It was extremely difficult to do given the time differences and that fact we had no idea what we were doing anyway. The best decision we made was choosing the Abbey Court Hotel as our wedding venue. From the moment we connected with Jenny, she was amazing. She guided us through the process with the ease of experience that she has and was always ready to answer questions/concerns that we had. We were able to get home only once before the wedding for 4 days and Jenny made herself fully available to us for whenever we could come to the hotel to do our tastings etc. She also recommend a local lady for flowers, who we ended up using. On the day of the wedding, every one of our guests commented how welcoming the staff were, how fantastic the food was and what a great day that they had. During the day we had Ray with us, he recommended my husband and I go to our room to have a few minutes to and enjoy the moment. We agreed with him and on our way to the room got caught talking to people etc and it took us roughly 20 mins to actually get up to the room. When the elevator opened Ray was standing there outside our door with 2 glasses of champagne on a silver platter and had been there for 20 minutes. It was amazing and great advice,that time together is one of the best memories we have of the day. I cannot fault the service or the people at the Abbey Court, they knew what we needed before we did and made the planning from Canada very straight forward. Their service is second to none and I recommend them to everyone.

We were on a tight budget but the staff at The Abbey Court still treated us like royalty from our very first visit - we knew as soon as we met the staff that we had found the best venue for our wedding; comfortable and homely, the hotel has lots of space with great accommodation options. The food was delicious, many of our guests complimented it, along with the portion sizes! The service was great at every turn, Ray and Eileen were so professional but also extremely friendly and warm - all round, it was the perfect venue for our wedding, as the cosy, welcoming atmosphere of the hotel was exactly the vibe we wanted on our wedding day.

From the planning to the big day we really couldn't have asked for more. We didn't spend much time in Ireland prior to the wedding as we live in the UK but not once did we feel like things weren't going to plan. A huge thank you to Ray and Eileen for making the day so perfect, we felt completely comfortable with the staff and surroundings and our memories will never be forgotten. If you are brave enough to tie the knot (is it worth it?.. of course it is!) I don't think you'll find a more perfect setting to be married. Thank you so much to the Abbey Court for making our day so special.

We were made to feel like we were the only couple every to get married. Every detail was done to perfection on the day...the meal and service were outstanding our guests are still talking about the dinner.

To All the Staff and Management at the Abbey Court Hotel with a special mention to Ray, Eileen and Breda, we cannot Thank You enough for helping to make our day everything we dreamed of and more. From the first visit to the Abbey Court Hotel to the morning after our Wedding we were made to feel welcomed and special and always greeted with a smile. All our queries and requests were dealt with quickly and professionally and with a great deal of patience! When you are planning one of the most important days of your lives attention to detail, attentiveness and support is what you require and that is exactly what we received. Ray was with us throughout the day with everything we required at hand - it’s almost like he can read your mind!! And Breda was with us during the meal to ensure everything was running smoothly - which it was. Our Wedding had just short of 270 guest and each person we have spoken to since has complimented the Hotel Staff, Food (compliments to the Chef and all the Kitchen Staff) and Accommodation - we could not be happier that we chose the Abbey Court Hotel to host our Wedding Party. The management and Staff at the Abbey Court Hotel are a credit to both the Hotel and Wedding Industry. A huge Thank You to everyone xxx

We had our wedding in the Abbey Court Hotel on New Year’s Eve 2014. On the lead up to our big day Eileen was so obliging and accommodating. It was such a reassurance to know that everything to do with the hotel side of the wedding was in safe hands. On the day Ray, Eileen, Breda and all the staff were fantastic. They did everything they could to make our day extra special. The service they provided was top class and we thoroughly want to thank them for this. Well over half of guests were not local to Nenagh and majority of these had not been to a wedding in the Abbey Court before. The feedback Niall and I, our parents and families got back about the hotel and the standard of service was fantastic. So many commented on the food from the day saying it outstanding. We are so happy that we chose to have our wedding in the Abbey Court and would highly recommend to any couple choosing the venue for their wedding!!!

We had our wedding reception in the Abbey Court at Christmas. We could not recommend the hotel highly enough. Before the wedding Imelda, Eileen and Jen were so helpful. They could not do enough for us and made everything so easy. I never got stressed about anything as they had absolutely everything under control. I have been to so many great weddings in the Abbey Court so I knew the day would go smoothly. But my expections were completely surpassed! The service was second to none. I will never forget the attention that was given to me (the bride). During the meal either Ray or Breda were there for every single thing I might need, before I even realised myself! The food was 5 star quality. The amount of guests that commented on the food was a testiment to the quality. And all the extra touches for the bridal table were very much appreciated. The fanfare with the presentation of our food was just brilliant! We kind of felt like celebrities for the day! The ballroom was decorated so elegantly. And the huge Christmas trees in the ballroom and in the lobby were absolutely beautiful. Ray is made for the job and the Abbey Court hotel are very lucky to have him over seeing the weddings. To say that Ray, Eileen and the rest of the staff go above and beyond the call of duty is an understatement. They made our wedding day just perfect! We cannot thank them enough. Claire and Seán.

I couldn't recommend this hotel enough, the service we received was flawless from the start to finish, leading up to the big day the wedding coordinator was so reassuring and on the day itself Ray the manager was beyond amazing he made everything run so smooth, I regularly go back to the hotel for events or dinner and have never had a bad experience, a beautiful place!

We had our wedding reception here in the Abbeycourt on 24th March 2012 and were blown away by the standard of service. We chose the hotel as my sister had had her reception there in 2008 but we had also looked at many hotels in Limerick and I have to say from the very outset, the reception and attention we received from the staff at the Abbeycourt was second to none. Joanne our wedding co-ordinator was always very prompt in getting back to us in relation to any query/request that we had and was even taking changes to the table plan on the morning of the wedding. We ordered canapes for arrivals and they were outstanding. They are not your standard canape, they were all individually prepared and as you can imagine they went down a treat! They were also presented very elegantly, on large glass mirrors. For our meal the food again was outstanding. So many of our guests are still talking about how good the food was. Many said it was like food you would get in a top restaurant as opposed to your standard wedding meal. I am fussy by nature and a bit of a perfectionist so I can tell you it really was that good!! The portion sizes were also very generous and the staff came around with seconds of beef and monkfish to every table. The thought and effort that was put into preparing the food was a credit to the head chef and all the kitchen staff. For starter we had Goats Cheese Sundried Tomato & Leek Tartlet with baby leaves and balsamic dressing-mouth watering!! or Caesar salad with warm Spicy Chicken, herb croutons and shaved granna padanno. While for or main course we had Fillet of Monkfish wrapped in smoked salmon and basil,chevril and cashew nut pesto OR Sirlion of Beef,Red onion Confit,Spring Onion Mash and Whiskey sauce. For desert we went for a nedley and that also went down a treat. Ray-the banqueting manager was also at our beckon call and put everyone at ease as he also acted as MC-introducing the bridal party etc.. Anytime we met Ray prior to our wedding day he was always so pleasant and upbeat-exactly how I'd remembered him from the time of my sister's wedding in 2008. I can't recommend the Abbeycourt highly enough for a wedding and I am being very honest in what I have written here. I myself am from county limerick while my husband is from Roscommon so the location really suited both wedding parties. The motorway from Limerick makes the Abbeycourt a short journey also, so it is well worth considering. As I say, we had visited many hotels in Limerick city and county but the Abbeycourt stood out above them all in terms of what they were offering in their wedding package but also in terms of how they treated us as potential customers. Finally, for anyone considering the Abbeycourt, their wedding package provided much more than any of the other hotels we had visited. On the day of our wedding the wedding car-a Rolls Royce was included as was corkage/chair covers and the afters food for a very reasonable price per head. I hope you choose the Abbeycourt for your reception. You won't regret it! Thanks again to Joanne,Imelda,Tara,Ray, Breada, the chef and all the staff, we will definitely be back for a weekend:) Rosie & John Fullard:)

We had our wedding function in your hotel on Feb 16. We want to compliment the hotel on providing us with a fantastic day/night everything was perfect. We have had great feedback from many of our guests who had a wonderful day (many of the guests who travelled could not get over the standard of service or the quality of the food). This of course would not be possible without your staff who made the day, Imelda in the run up to the wedding was so accommodating and efficient and made my job as the groom fairly hassle free. On the day Breda Sheperd in the dining room/John O'Gorman in the bar and David Hogan as night manager all went out of their way to make things run smoothly. Of course then you have Ray who is just so truely outstanding at his job and ensured everything was in place for us to have a wonderful day. As somebody who has a business in the town it is great to have the Abbey Court going so well in these difficult times as it vitally important to the continued development of Nenagh. So again we would lke to thank you and your staff for a wonderful day.
Rosie and John Fullard

Many thanks and best wishes.

Steve & Fiona
Thanks and gratitude to Imelda and Ray and all the staff of the hotel - both front of house and behind the scenes - for making our day so memorable and special. I had visions of how the day would go but my visions fell way short of how the day actually went! Everybody commented on how great the place was for the ceremony and the meal and how good and plentiful the food was! We got a lot of good words said about the food and everybody also said how lovely and friendly the staff were too. A fabulous day and it is a credit to you all at the hotel. ..
A big thank you to Imelda and all the staff of the hotel for looking after us so well on our wedding day on Sept 27th - both before the big day and the day itself. Our guests were so complimentary of the food and the level of service. We had a fabulous day! The Guinness and onion soup went down a storm by the way!! Thanks again for all your help in planning and coordinating. It made all the difference and its truly appreciated.
