We had the most fantastic experience with the Hillgrove Hotel wedding team, namely Dean Coyne. We booked our wedding in April 2021 for September 2021 which was a relatively short period of time for planning. Coupled with this we were in the middle of a pandemic and the level of support and quality of service from the Hillgrove Hotel was second to none. In a time were nothing was certain we were regularly contacted by the hotel and updated on where things were and what restrictions were in place, always reassuring us. Dean did everything within his power to accommodate us and was really flexible with whatever was within his control. The hotel, reception area and the wedding room itself are beautiful. Stunning lighting features and decorations throughout. All our guests commented on how fabulous the reception area and wedding room were. We had some children within our wedding guests and they had an amazing time with loads of facilities to keep them occupied. We were blown away by how easy Dean made everything for us and there were so many things he just took care of without question. We have busy jobs and live in the UK so having very little to arrange for the venue was beyond what we were hoping for and we couldn't be more thankful to Dean and the wider team. The day itself was managed to perfection. The Hillgrove team were so professional, friendly and accommodating. We had the best day, so relaxed for us and would highly recommend this venue to any of our friends or family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing service you all provide, we couldn't have chosen a better venue to celebrate our day!

We got married last Saturday and had our reception at the Hillgrove. We booked our wedding here before Covid was ever a thing and from the get go we felt that unlike any other hotels the Hillgrove were willing to give back to couples ie. the gift to you. Like many other couples we had to postpone our wedding for September 2020 and this was done so smoothly and totally hassle free. As our new wedding approached and guidelines needed clarification from the government we were starting to dread a covid wedding again but after speaking to Enda he soon to put us at ease and helped make the planning enjoyable again. Dean had then taken over and well what can we say, as a newly promoted wedding events manager he was more that happy to go over and beyond for us nothing was to big of an ask. If there was anything he could do for us he did. Dean was an absolute delight to work along with in making our special day as magical as it was. All the staff in general on our wedding day couldn’t be faulted, the food was endless and glasses were never empty. Everyone just kept talking about the amount of food and how nice it was. If we were to do it again we wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you very much, from the new Mr & Mrs Cunningham 18.09.21

From the very first day we were by to the Hillgrove to book our wedding there, which was a civil wedding and full reception, the staff were so professional and explained every detail so clearly, they left no questions unanswered, we were shown the function room, the civil ceremony room, both laid out immaculately and beautiful, we were shown the new garden, full choice menus which even catered for dietary requirements, everything was made so clear to us and the Hillgrove staff, namely Enda and Dean, both fully worked with us for our wedding, alongside the wedding celebrant, florists and cake maker, due to corolabola Govt restrictions and because of the restrictions, the Hillgrove staff namely Enda and Dean actually gave us for our day a lot of extra decorations and features to make the civil ceremony, entry hall and reception room even more fantastic and beautifully decorated, thank you all so much, we were to have our wedding last year but had to postpone it till this year, that was no problem to them at all, the govt restrictions still placed a limit on us, of 50 guests and no live music, Enda and Dean played trumps with us by organising the Spotify playlist made by the band we had booked, to be played both at the civil ceremony and after the wedding meal, that really made the nigh for us, the food was fantastic, so thanks to the chefs and the banquet staff for amazing service, choices, efficiency and prices, all were brilliant, the rooms for guests and the bridal suite were all to class, the professionalism of Enda and Dean with all thier help and guidance was unreal and without them, we were pule have been lost, they even kept the flowers in a fridge!!!! Who ever is thinking of booking the Hillgrove for thier wedding, don't dare bypass them as you will regret it, they only complaint we had was, it's an awful pity you guys didn't have Hillgrove Hotel over the past few years, it's now a truly amazing hotel under management of INUA hotels and well turned around and decorated top to bottom, with amazing staff and excellent prices, compared to its previous owners, in fact I'd love to work there

We had the most amazing wedding day and weekend at the hillgrove hotel. Mary and the rest of the staff were absolutely fantastic. They made us feel like nothing was too much to ask and the attention to detail was very much appreciated. Mary has such a lovely calm approachable Manor and I knew our day was in great hands from the beginning, she really knows her stuff!! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The ballroom we chose for both our ceremony and reception was just newly refurbished to a high standard with its own entrance and drinks reception area, extremely handy for us as we decided to go ahead in the middle of a pandemic. Both myself and my husband and all our guests felt the hotel took all the necessary steps to keep us safe and protected. Our day was just dreamy!!! I cannot recommend having your wedding in this venue enough. It was an absolute delight!

The wedding packages are fantastic value and the food and service was something else! The function room is just stunning, everyone commented on it!

Our wedding in the Hillgrove hotel was an absolutely excellent experience. The hotel staff were superb from the minute we walked in the door to speak to the wedding planners when we were researching wedding venues, all the way through to the minute we left on the day after our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, all our needs were expertly looked after, and the quality of the rooms, the decor, the foyer, the wedding reception rooms etc., was all superb. On the day of the wedding itself, we were expertly managed by the experienced staff, and the food and service were top notch. There was not one complaint from any of our guests (240 people),so we are delighted with the hotel, and are totally comfortable with recommending it to other couples who are looking for a great wedding venue.

From we first met up with Mary last year, nothing was a problem. She is a fantastic woman to deal with and extremely precise in everything she does. We never had a doubt that the hotel would be able to cater for our 400 guests with absolute perfection and they really pulled out all the stops to make our day so perfect and memorable. We really had the best day ever. Thank you!

The Hillgrove is absolutely amazing!! Myself and my husband went back in 2016 to have a look and from we met Mary and seen the room everything was perfect. 3years in advance booking everything. Mary was in touch all the time making sure everything was well especially with the arrival of our daughter. The few months leading up to our wedding Mary was on the ball with everything and the communication was brilliant anything I needed or wanted she sorted!! On arrival of our wedding the welcome we got from Mary&Enda was phenomenal!! The way everything was displayed was absolutely beautiful!! My guests never stopped talking about the amount of bubbly,beer and food on arrival and it all tasted amazing, even the selection of food for my coeliac relatives they were amazed!! Then the dinner unbelievable the food was out of this world as always and yet again my guests couldn't get over how wonderful everything was and the amount of seconds.... The whole hotel, staff, food even the decor (what made me love the hotel) is simply amazing everything was completed to perfection exactly how I wanted our special day to go!!!  We will be forever grateful for the Hillgrove hotel for everything they done for us on the 19/09/19 Highly recommend it.. Actually can't recommend the hotel enough. It is just a beautiful place to visit, to try the food, the spa and have a nice night away!!!  Thanks for everything... Love from the McGinleys x

The entire service was absolutely excellent from quality of the service and food, to the welcome and the setup. Mary, Enda and the entire team made us feel so relaxed and welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed every second of our day. The food was incredible and all our guests (many of whom travelled from England) commented on how welcome they felt over the whole weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and throughout our entire reception everything was so in hand by the staff that both myself and my husband barely left the dancefloor and we got to enjoy every second of our evening with our guests - which was exactly what we wanted. If I were to do it all over again the only thing I would change would be to make it last even longer!

Where to start!! We had the most amazing day at the Hillgrove Hotel Monaghan for our wedding on 3rd May! Our wedding coordinator Mary was amazing from we initially visited the hotel back in September 2017 right through to our wedding day! She literally could not do enough for you, she honestly made my wedding planning experience quite relaxed and never once did I panic about anything in relation to the venue! Mary had everything covered which made our day run so smoothly!! I could not recommend Mary & her team highly enough as wedding coordinators for you big day! In the venue itself we used the Rembrandt Suite for our wedding ceremony and the Van Gough Suite for the reception. Both were decorated impeccably - we could not have been happier with the layout of the rooms, the decorations and the ambience as a whole was amazing!! The food was delicious, we heard nothing but good reports about the food and everyone seemed to really enjoy their meals! The staff were second to none! We had quite a big wedding with 194 guests and throughout the food service and evening buffet the staff were fantastic, they were friendly, approachable and efficient!! Special shout out to Moulay, Evelyn, Geraldine and Aleksandra who were fantastic on both our wedding day and the bbq celebrations the day after!! Our wedding guests are still talking about our wedding and how amazing the Hillgrove as a venue was which is testament in itself to the service we received! I honestly could not recommend the Hillgrove highly enough for any upcoming wedding!! You will not be disappoint

Wedding We had our wedding in the hillgrove hotel on the 30th March, we could not recommend this hotel enough. We dealt with Mary all throughout our wedding planning she went above and beyond to make our day so special. The food was top class and the staff were excellent. We still have people telling us the food, staff and band were excellent and they had a great day. It is a real family hotel and as we already have a child we were looking to keep him entertained on the day also,Mary organised a bouncy castle and it was fully supervised by two wonderful staff members. If u are thinking of staying here or booking your wedding here we could not recommend this hotel enough, u definitely wont be disappointed,it is fab! The spa is also top class in it I used it to de stress before the wedding and also went back after the wedding. Big thanks to the staff u's are a wonderful bunch and definitely deserve a 5 star rating!

As well as being excellent at her job she is a genuinely lovely person and made the whole process so easy and had everything covered on the day which took away any stress for us and meant we could enjoy it properly.

Had our wedding in the Hillgrove last month and I can honestly say I cannot recommend this hotel enough! On the day everything was fantastic- the room was set up beautifully, the service we received was second to none and the meal was just to die for! Before our big day we had the help of the fabulous Mary who did her best to help with any and all questions that we had (and believe me that was a lot!!) We were the first wedding to be photographed in the new wedding gardens and we are delighted with our photographs! Brilliant to have such a nice spot right outside the hotel so you don't have to go away to get photos taken and end up missing out on more of the big day. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Hillgrove to any engaged couples as the quality of service from all of the hotel staff we got was phenomenal, our special day went off without a hitch and we are still getting comments from guests of it being "the best wedding they have been at", our delicious wedding meal is still getting talked about too! Get in contact with Mary and she won't let you down :

We had our wedding in this hotel on the 28th December! If your thinking about booking do it!! Mary the wedding co-ordinator is an absolute wee gem! Nothing was ever too much hassle including my one million emails! The whole planning process was a breeze with Mary we left boxes of supplies in the hotel the night before and Mary had all perfectly laid out for our arrival. She was there to greet us on arrival and ensure that our day ran smooth! Mary ensured that we kept to our timescale for the day and therefore allowed us to enjoy the evening party of our wedding! The food was absolutely top class! Our guests are still raving about the food and the fantastic service which was provided on the day! The champagne breakfast the next day was more than enjoyable! We can’t wait to stay again! Aisling & James xx

Cannot recommend these guys enough. Mary was our wedding coordinator. Nothing was any trouble for her. She was absolutely fantastic. Anything we wanted or needed she made sure it was seen to at the drop of a hat. A beautiful person inside and out she really couldn’t do enough for us . I had lots of little extra bits that I wanted added in and she made sure all was looked after. The staff are fantastic. The moment I walked into our reception room it took my breath away. It was laid out to perfection and was so much more beautiful than I could have imagined. The food was impeccable. The bar and waiting staff was always on hand to tend to everyone’s needs. My guests are still talking about the great day they had and most of that was down to this superb venue.

So delighted to have had our wedding here. We won 1st prize in a fabulous competition where we received €5000 towards our wedding in 2018. We were helped along the journey by 2 brilliant wedding co-ordinators Mary and Enda. Our day ran so smoothly from arriva till late into the night. We loved the recently refurbished decor and the space to enjoy a large wedding. The food was exceptional and we were provided with a great choice. Would well recommend the Hillgrove for their relaxed atmosphere. Would love to be doing it all over again

From start to finish our experience with the Hillgrove could not be faulted. They fulfilled every request we had without question and were always available to answer any queries we may have had. Mary, our wedding co-ordinator ensured that the day ran smoothly and everything could not have been more perfect. The food and service was exceptional and all the guests were of the same opinion. The hotel itself is spectacular and we were so impressed with the attention to detail and value they provided. We would highly recommend the Hillgrove to anyone as an amazing wedding venue.

We held our wedding on 4th August 2018 in the Van Gogh suite in the Hillgrove Hotel. From the minute we got out of our limo we were taken care of. Enda is a gentleman who is excellent at his job. The staff in the Hillgrove are outstanding, nothing is ever a bother. Mary and Enda are both excellent and a pleasure to deal with, both made my experience an easy and delightful one. The room was absolutely stunning exactly what I wanted. Our guests all commented on how good the food and the service they received from the staff. Everyone was eating at the same time so no waiting around. I would recommend the Hillgrove for a wedding and I wish I could do mine all over again. Thank you Enda and Mary for helping us have the best day!

Me and my husband had our Wedding Evening Reception at the Hillgrove Hotel Monaghan on the 3rd of August 2018. The Hillgrove was close to home and thought it would be ideal for our special day. The lead up to the wedding, our Hotel Wedding Co-Ordinator Mary did everything to help us with great communication. On the day of the Wedding, Mary ensured everything went to plan from start to finish, timing and food etc was great. Mary and the staff of the Hillgrove did an excellent job. We recommend the Hillgrove for a great wedding. Thanks very much. Lisa & Cathal.

We held our wedding in the Hillgrove and it was a fantastic day! Food was great and the room where we held our ceremony was beautifully decorated, staff were pleasant and very helpful! Our wedding co-ordinator (Mary) went over and beyond for us, anyone planning to get married should definitely go for a look around. It was a pleasure from the planning to our big day.

What can I say...just wow!! From the very first moment we came to the Hillgrove as a possible venue we were blown away!! The hotel is decorated to such a high standard, the staff are amazing..so so helpful and the food is fabulous!! We booked straight away and it was the best decision we made hands down. Mary & her team couldn't do enough for us, so helpful, professional and calmed me down at the later stages of planning when I started to fuss over the small stuff. All of our guests loved the food on the wedding day, including some people that are notoriously hard to please!! We had a lot of guests stay over on the wedding night and all reviews were positive the next day which was great to hear. Another note is that my brother with severe disabilities was treated like a King that day, the staff couldn't do enough to help out and that for me was the icing on the cake. Can't wait for our next visit..hopefully, get a weekend away soon!! Highly recommend to all brides in the booking stage...you won't regret it!!

Myself and My Husband Celebrated our Wedding in the Hillgrove in January, Everything was fantastic, every request I had was never a problem. We sat 309 guests and everyone was delighted with the food and service on the day. We had hot whiskeys and mini burgers on arrival which went down a treat :) People still talk about our wedding which is great, unfortunately when all is over that's all you have left, is that all your guests had a great day. Thank you to all the staff!

We recently got married in the Hillgrove hotel and I cannot explain how amazing our experience was! Mary Quigley our wedding coordinator was exceptional and she covered all the little details that made our day perfect! From the food to the bridal suite to the unbelievable service the day was perfect from start to finish! Throughout the run up to our wedding mary was always at the end of the phone or email to help us with anything we needed! Mary went beyond her duties to make this day so special for us and was even there to reassure me the week before when I was slightly stressed! A 10/10 from my new husband and I! All of our guests have said how exceptional the day was also! Highly recommend the Hillgrove for any upcoming brides and grooms!

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Linda was our coordinator and nothing was too much hassle. We were organising our wedding from over seas and the flexibility that the Hillgrove had for us when it came to appointments was unbelievable. They know exactly what they are doing and they do it brilliantly, complete experts and can assist with any extras. The food...our guests raved about the food, the quality and the quantity is fantastic. Couldn't have asked for better.
