We had our Wedding Day at the Lakeside Hotel on the 10th of August 2019. It went smoothly from beginning to end and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. The food, venue and service was second to none. We really enjoyed it and so did all of our guests! A special thanks to Catherine Lewis and the team from the initial meeting up until our Wedding Day, you were a pleasure to deal with and it made the whole process so easy and everything looked amazing on the day. We would highly recommend the Lakeside as a Wedding venue. The location, service and staff are amazing and it gets 5 stars from us! ?

We always heard the Lakeside put on a fab wedding but boy we're we in for a treat! Catherine is wonderful and makes sure everything is tailored to exactly what you're looking for. Food was AMAZING.

The Lakeside Hotel was a dream location for our wedding. Catherine was just amazing to work with. No job was ever too big for her. From our first meeting with her right throughout to our wedding day Catherine was always extremely friendly, helpful and went out of her way to help us create our dream day. She always has a smile on her face too! Such a bubbly and hard working person! I wanted to bring in a few little pieces as decor for our wedding- a tree and a bike to name a few and yes was always the answer! The staff and Catherine were just fab! Just to note that my decor wasn't needed- Catherine and the team has the place beautifully decorated! It was just stunning! Picture Perfect! The staff at the Lakeside were very friendly and helpful to our guests on the day. The feedback from our friends and family was just brilliant! The were full with delicious food- thanks to the Thomas, the hard working chefs and waiters! The whole day ran so smoothly and We can't thank the Lakeside enough for everything they did to make our dream so special to us.

We would highly recommend the lakeside hotel as a wedding venue as it ticks all of the boxes - beautiful location , accommodation is amazing especially the new waterfront rooms , fantastic food , unreal decor tailored to exactly our woodland/wildflower theme and amazing service along with great value for money!! We had the most incredible wedding day thanks to the team at the lakeside.

Catherine should get a raise! I had complete confidence that I could fully rely on Catherine for every detail. Throughout the whole process she was on top of everything, quick to respond to emails, never forgot anything that we had mentioned and kept methodical notes every time we met. She always appeared very calm, organised and on top of her workload as if we were the only clients she had on her schedule! In the busyness of the day we forgotten to make sure that the photographer and videographer(who had travelled from Dublin at 7am that morning) were offered a meal on us. We were so disappointed that someone hadn’t mentioned it to us on the day and so emailed the photographer and videographer to apologies only to be told that Catherine had actually looked after them on the day without even getting us involved! So fantastic and proactive! So many guests commented on how amazing the food was, it was served really hot and as one guest observed...”it wasn’t just hot from sitting under a heater” it was hot from being timed perfectly and everything tasted amazing. The presentation of the food to the top table was fantastic, from the staff all wearing white gloves, to the ceremonious synchronised revealing of each course, very theatrical, I loved it! Every time I have visited the hotel, every member of staff I have met have been such a pleasure to deal with, this is probably the feature of The Lakeside that I have been most consistently impressed with....and the food! This was also something that was mentioned by guests, how lovely and well trained the staff were, especially the two younger guys serving in the residence bar, at that hour of the morning were still full of smiles and good humour. The grounds of the hotel and gardens looked amazing. We decided to put the bridal party and our parents into the new waterfront suites and they were absolutely blown away by them. I couldn’t have wished for anything more from The Lakeside and we are so thrilled that we chose it for our wedding reception. We will be back again soon! Thanks everyone.

Recently had our wedding at The Lakeside Hotel, cannot compliment the hotel and the staff enough.

The lakeside Hotel is a beautiful little gem based on Lough Derg. The views, the location and the staff made our Day so very special. From the day we booked our wedding Catherine was so helpful, nothing was ever an issue and offered so many options. The food, service and overall experience that we received was exceptional.

We had our wedding in the Lakeside in May 2019. We shopped around a lot but it was actually the wedding manager Catherine that made us choose this venue. It was the only place we left where we felt like we just had tea with an old friend. She made us feel at ease and comfortable. From the beginning she also had some great suggestions too to help in our planning. Packages weren’t set in stone and things could be moved around easily. It was a different atmosphere in the hotel too, after booking we would often go for a drive and have Sunday dinner there and everyone we met there was so friendly and attentive. Our wedding day went seamless then, Catherine had thought of things we had forgotten about. We got a lot of comments from our guests on the amount of food and drinks on arrival, that was particularly nice. Also the meal itself was everything you could possibly want. Overall I’d highly recommend having your wedding at the lakeside. We were able to personalize with anything we wanted and nothing we asked about was a problem!

I couldn't fault the Lakeside Hotel in anyway, I would highly recommend the hotel to any couple. Catherine was on hand to answer every question we had, she was there to help in any way and offer support and advice. We planned the wedding from London, and I honestly don't think we could have done it without Catherine! On the day, all the staff were outstanding. So helpful and attentive. We have lost count of the number of guests who commented on the grounds, the food, the staff, the rooms. Everyone raved about the hotel, and lots of our guests have booked to stay in the Lakeside again! I really would not hesitate to recommend the Lakeside to any couple

We chose the Lakeside for it's location, setting, and for it's reputation for weddings, and we were not disappointed! The Lakeside surpassed our expectations across the board. Catherine Lewis is a fantastic wedding and events manager. Any request we made was dealt with so smoothly, she is so approachable, warm, and very organised! The day went so smoothly, and we attribute this to the incredible organisational skills of Catherine, and also the rest of the team. The staff at the hotel during the reception were very professional and efficient, while Thomas ensured the smooth operation of the day. Even details such as having some food and prosecco put aside for us when we came out of the ceremony (which was much appreciated). Overall, I cannot recommend this team enough for the organisation of a wedding. We had a humanist ceremony in the hotel, and so many guests commented on the amazing turnaround from ceremony setting to dinner setting of the ballroom. The staff transformed the room from ceremony to reception and the room looked gorgeous. We highly highly recommend this hotel for a wedding, and are so delighted that we went with them. We wouldnt change a thing!

We can't compliment the Lakeside enough. The venue is beautiful, well decorated. The garden outside, overlooking the river and town of Killaloe was an absolute dream. We were so lucky. Catherine was so much fun and so organised and helpful. In the hectic days leading up to the day she kept us on track. The food was amazing. Compliments to the chef. Everyone was delighted...and stuffed. The function room had loads of daylight streaming in so you didn't feel like you were in a bunker, which is common in a lot of hotels. It was beautiful. Highly recommend the place and it's wonderful staff.

I can not recommend highly enough the Lakeside hotel to host your wedding and indeed as a place to stay. It is an amazing hotel, with top level personal service, in a beautiful setting. Even though it mainly hosts larger wedding events, we had a small, intimate ceremony with lots of specialized requests, which they could happily accommodate. Eoin, Catherine and the team there were essential to the planning and offered great guidance to us. During the day itself , they basically ran the show and we could not have asked for it have been better . It really was special.

From Start to Finish, we had the best experience ever imaginable. When we met Catherine Lewis for the first time out in the Lakeside she sold the Lakeside to us with her lovely, witty personality. Catherine was very approachable at any time of day and she made us at ease with any special requests we had for our wedding Day. All of The Lakeside staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the many times we visited the hotel. The day before our wedding we dropped out our belongings that were needed for the following day. Catherine and the hotel staff did a super job in arranging everything we had in the most suitable places. The Food was amazing and our guests are still commenting on how lovely the food was and how big the portions were. The Hotel is spotlessly clean with gorgeous bedrooms looking out onto the River. The Reception Staff were very helpful to us when allocating rooms to family and friends. Both Vincent and I would like to Thank the Lakeside Staff for everything they did for us. We both would highly recommend the Lakeside hotel to all newly engaged couples and you will be in safe hands in the hands of Catherine Lewis.

We felt instantly at ease when we went to view The Lakeside as a possible venue for our wedding. The decor of blues and grays were exactly the type of thing we would pick ourselves and as we chatted to Catherine by the fire, we knew there was nowhere else we wanted to have our wedding. This is a hotel who really have everything you are looking for - the view can be seen from nearly every window, the hotel is warm and inviting, and the function room glittered with backdrops of fairy lights. As we walked down to the function room I kept commenting on the decorations - every single one of which were available to brides to be. The fuction room was an ideal size - big but not cavernous. I remember thinking how bright it was and perfectly set up for a night of dancing and craic. Catherine was a dream to work with - recommending vendors, checking in to see if things were on track - she was really thorough in finding out how we wanted the tables to look and adding to them in such a beautiful way. She has so much experience that it makes planning a breeze knowing that both she and the hotel is not something you have to even worry about. On the day of the wedding she was on hand, making sure everything was perfect - we couldn’t have asked for more. The hotel made our wedding incredibly special - the service in the hotel from the waiters to the service desk to the wedding team were second to none. The food at the wedding is still being talked about and we have eaten there before and since because it is guaranteed quality each and every time. This hotel is modern, comfortable, has amazing food, service and views, and is exceptionally good value. What more could you ask for? We intend to have many family functions here through out the years. Thank you again to the amazing staff at The Lakeside Hotel

Catherine & her team were phenomenal to deal with throughout our entire wedding journey. From the intricate details, we wanted added to the day, to the food, wine, service, hospitality - everything was more than we could have asked for! Many friends and family have complimented the venue since - particular mention to the food served. Specific praise to Catherine on how well she looked after us on the day - it was the small touches that made the difference. We really appreciated it. The Lakeside Hotel is a venue I couldn't recommend enough for anyone's special day.

We had an amazing wedding here!!! The day ran so smoothly from start to finish. Catherine is just the most amazing wedding coordinator, she was great in the run up and on the day, and really went out of her way to help with anything I asked about. The rest of the staff are also lovely and friendly. Our guests had a fantastic time, they were all so impressed with the food, great quality and lots of it! And the hotel itself is really very impressive. We had our ceremony in the ballroom and it really was beautiful, the hotel has really made it a beautiful space for a ceremony. We had been hoping to have it outside on the lawn but the weather didn’t allow, in the end though we were delighted with the ballroom, it was really nicely done. We had enough good weather for photos outside in the beautiful gardens and under the trees. We had looked at so many different ideas for venues in the area, from golf clubs with a marquee to using a local pub! In the end, we were delighted with our choice, it was so easy and comfortable for everyone, totally stress-free, and worked for the whole event. Couldn’t recommend them enough!

The Lakeside Hotel was the first venue we visited when we started our wedding research. From that first meeting with Catherine we knew the Lakeside was where we wanted to have our wedding reception. The hotel itself had a lovely homely feel and all staff made us feel welcome. We were very happy with the wedding package on offer and we felt that any requests we had regarding menus/decor etc. were met. The food on the day was beautiful and the portions were very generous - many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. All dietary requirements were catered for during the main meal and during the reception/evening food also. Catherine herself was brilliant to deal with. We know that she has so many weddings to coordinate, but she really does go above and beyond for every couple. She shared in our excitement about the prep, responded to all queries/comments promptly in the lead up and she was great to have around on the day itself. We could rest assured knowing that if any problem arose, Catherine would deal with it. She also made sure the function room looked just as I had envisioned! We had a day after BBQ at the hotel and the organisation of this was so simple and the food was gorgeous again. The hotel organised music for that evening free of charge. On top of all that, the location is stunning with many locations around the hotel and nearby for photos. We would definitely recommend the Lakeside :)

We recently got married in the Lakeside hotel Killaloe and I honestly do not know where to start! We were treated like royalty from the first day we went to view the venue. The pre wedding meal tasting was incredible, a night of sheer indulgence! Catherine went above and beyond on the wedding day, it was like she was able to be everywhere at all times! She was there when we needed absolutely anything. She even got candle wax off one our guests suit trousers!! She went above and beyond her call of duty, we were incredibly impressed. The staff at the lakeside are so skilled, they are experts when it comes to wedding yet they make your wedding so unique and special for you. I am so looking forward to going back to the hotel to celebrate anniversaries and meet the team again! They were so cool, calm and collected and helped us in every way possible which saved us so much, not only money but also stress! They made the entire day stress free, relaxed and lots of fun! Our guests are still raving about the food on the day, it was divine and everyone was stuffed which is always a great sign at a wedding! We are very thankful to Catherine and all the team at the Lakeside for a smooth, relaxed and fun filled day!

We could not thank you enough for your help in the last 2 years. The feedback we have got from all our guests in the aftermath has been brilliant. The food has been highlighted by all as been exceptional and plentiful, it was very evident that you and your team left no stone unturned in the preparation of the hotel, on the day. We cannot speak highly enough of all the staff also who were brilliant throughout the day. We can honestly say we would not change a thing about the day and the Lakeside exceeded our expectations

We had both our reception and Humanist ceremony at the hotel. From the moment we arrived at the hotel and for the following 4 days, we were treated like royalty. No one at our reception (as we travelled from Cork) had ever been at a wedding or stayed at Lakeside except for immediate family who have stayed here (and have now been back since). Every guest fell in love with the setting, the hotel, the food. The day/weekend was faultless and we are both so grateful to Catherine Lewis and all the staff for making our wedding so magical. We did not worry about one detail from the moment we booked our wedding as we knew we were in safe hands. I had many guests at the wedding who have worked in leisure around the world and all said the service/food etc was top class. We both feel so lucky to have chosen the Lakeside hotel as we could not have chosen a better venue. We were married outside in the garden which was extra special/beautiful. Catherine and the team made sure the reception room was spot on, it was just beautiful even without us buying any extra wedding bits, they did such a good job there was no need for us to add anything else. Many of our guests have been back to stay at the hotel and are looking to go back, that goes for us too, we cannot wait to head back. The Lakeside hotel will always be very special to both of us and our families. One of our guests turned to my husband the day of the wedding and said, I'd hate to be Pat(who is due to get married) having to follow this day, you could not beat a day/location like this. Since the wedding Pat has been back and looks like he will be having his wedding here also. Our guests are still raving about the pre-drinks reception and food, the meal and the evening food. You certainly won't find a better venue than the Lakeside. My only wish is that we lived closer to Killaloe as this is one of the best settings/venues you will find.

ur wedding celebration at The Lakeside Hotel went beautifully. All was expertly managed by our very professional wedding co-ordinator Catherine Lewis, from the early pre-planning many months before to managing the events on the night itself. The venue itself is lovely, situated right on the banks of the Shannon; the premises are good and the dinner was excellent, the various dishes served with prompt panache to all tables – seemingly concurrently – by the attentive waiting staff. The fine and varied menu was evidently prepared by a very good chef and kitchen team. Our sincere thanks go to Catherine and all concerned for making this a smoothly-run and joyous occasion. We could not have chosen better. Roger and Fiona

Catherine and the team at the Lakeside team were simply super. Nothing was a problem when we asked before the day. We will remember our wedding day forever. Catherine and her team ensured everything went smoothly. The food on the day was superb. The feedback about the hotel which we have received from our guests since our wedding has been hugely positive.

We had an absolutely perfect day in the Lakeside. I would highly recommend them for both value for money and the service you get while there for your wedding is second to none. All the staff knew who we were and nothing was an issue the whole weekend. Friends and family gave us nothing but positive feedback about the hotel, stating that it was a lovely relaxed atmosphere that felt more like home than a hotel which is exactly what we wanted. Catherine is as good of a wedding coordinator as you could hope for - nothing was ever a big issue and she had plenty of ideas to give towards the wedding. Couldn't recommend the place higher!

Catherine is amazing at what she does. We visited many venues and met many coordinators before we met Catherine at The Lakeside. After that evening we had absolutely no worries in relation to our day and venue and knew our guests would be taken care of. She is professional, approachable and very friendly. Nothing was to much of an ask. We felt very confident that everything was in Catherine's capable hands. She did everything that needed to be done and more. I would and have recommended Catherine and The Lakeside to people with confidence.

Catherine Lewis & co in the Lakeside Hotel were simply put the most perfect, professional and personal service providers for our wedding. They really got involved with the wedding. No task either too big or small for them to make our day extra special. We could not have asked for better service and I would recommend them highly enough to any other future Mr & Mrs to be. I don’t think there is a single other wedding venue that could come close to the perfection of The Lakeside Hotel. Their ideal location on the Shannon with those amazing views, the exceptional professional yet personal service, the modern finish to the interior of the hotel...not to mention how tasty the food was and the quantity was very generous. All my guests also could not speak more highly of the Hotel and the service they provided. Warmest regards, Mr & Mrs Rooney

Catherine and staff at the Lakeside made our wedding perfect from initial planning stage to the wedding day. Everything was done with such professionalism and responsiveness we had the most stress free wedding, which says a lot since we were planning from abroad. We have heard nothing but rave reviews from family and friends about the food and service. Catherine's knowledge and experience is unbound. She worked with us to accommodate all our requests and had a number of referrals. The day was run with perfection and we were able to sit back and enjoy Thanks to Catherine and The Lakeside for the most magical day ever.

She was like working with a friend she eased any nerves or anxieties before the day and on our wedding she made sure everything ran smoothly! The venue is beautiful, garden's fab for pictures! The function room is lovely and the rooms were lovely for guests. This is and will be our favourite place to come and stay in! We had our first year anniversary dinner and stay and we felt just as special as we did for our wedding with surprise champagne and happy anniversary dessert platter for our meal, we love the lakeside and it will be forever our special place to go to!

Tommy & I got married on the 22nd July 2017 and had our reception in The Lakeside Hotel, Killaloe. Catherine Lewis, the wedding co-ordinator is just absolutely fantastic at her job - We cannot put into words how grateful we are to herself and all of the team at The Lakeside. Catherine, Eoin, Ashlynn, Jen - They are all incredible people and they all make the place what it is - the personal touch and how all of the staff just want to go out of their way to help in anyway they can is what makes this venue so special. They all made everything so stress-free and nothing was too much trouble. We are so delighted we chose it as our venue - We got so many compliments from our guests on how amazing and friendly and helpful all of the staff were, how homely and welcoming the place is, how nothing was too much trouble - Everyone really goes out of their way to assist you in anyway they can. The Lakeside is very well known for their food and my god it is just amazing, even the fussiest of eaters wont be able to complain - All of their dishes are first class and there is so much of everything and everything just tastes so delicious. For anyone looking to choose their venue, The Lakeside won't leave you disappointed - Being from East Clare it was so lovely to have the wedding close to home and show all of our guests what a beautiful part of the world it really is. We have lived in Perth for the last 6 years and it was so lovely to be back on home soil and to show everyone where I call home - We had guests who travelled from all over the world and they all loved the place. It really is such a stunning part of the country - It has everything you could ask for, the most picturesque setting imaginable on Lough Derg, beautiful gardens, great food, wonderful staff, lovely accomodation, great leisure facilities and so much to do if you want to go for a wander down around the village and explore...10/10 from start to finish. Our wedding day was just a dream, they have their own jetty as well and we arrived into our reception by boat which was just brilliant. Day 2 was just fantastic as well - The team put on a fantastic BBQ for us all and we had a lovely trad session looking out over the lake, it was just the bestest weekend from start to finish and I'm sad it's all over. Can't wait to visit again on our next trip home from Perth - Just top class as a wedding venue and we cannot rate it highly enough.

From the day we booked our wedding, over two years ago, the level of professionalism and service has been impeccable. We had our wedding ceremony in the picturesque gardens over looking the lake. On our big day, Catherine and Ashlynns attention to detail had surpassed our expectations. The food was delicious! We have often eaten at the Lakeside Hotel and every time we enjoy it more than the last. Our guests are still talking about how exceptional the entire day was from start to finish.

She was excellent in every way and I am so delighted we chose this venue. William in the bar was exceptionally accommodating and pleasant to deal with. Nothing was ever too much trouble for any member of staff. Ashlynn is dedicated to her role as is Thomas committed and energetic in ensuring all needs are met. I cant possibly speak any higher. Michelle had a long list of things she wanted to do and Catherine and her team 100% delivered.

We didn't have a multi-million euro budget... However... we absolutely did have a multi million euro wedding... we couldn't possibly have got better or more prestigious from an alternative venue....

We live in Queensland, Australia and opted for a small intimate family destination wedding in Ireland and were first drawn to the Lakeside for it's incredible setting, and also due to their great reputation and value for money. We found the Lakeside Hotel to be an incredible wedding venue and one that all our guests loved. We organised our wedding from overseas and found the wedding coordinator, Catherine Lewis, to be phenomenal and extremely accommodating. We also found the staff in general to be highly professional and extremely helpful, especially as a number of our guests were from overseas and didn't speak English. We had a humanist ceremony in the hotel itself, and the Lakeside helped to make the ballroom look awesome! This goes for the reception also: the room looked great, very atmospheric. The food was incredible, not only was it high quality but the portions were also very generous. This was a common consensus amongst all our guests. The bridal suite is gorgeous with incredible views and the room has great vibes! Was a perfect place to get ready the morning of the wedding. Our guests stayed at the hotel anything from 1-6 nights and were happy with the accommodation side of things. Our whole day was perfect, everything we hoped it would be and more! Would recommend having your wedding at the Lakeside in a heartbeat!

We had the most amazing day at the Lakeside Hotel. The management and staff are absolutely fantastic. The food was just out of this world. Everyone who attended our wedding spoke about how good the beef was for weeks after. Catherine was just fabulous. She was a fantastic support throughout. She told me from day one I would have nothing to worry about and by god she was 100% right. No request was too stupid or silly. Sinead who looks after the accommodation is such a lovely person also. She was brilliant and so “accommodating” with all my changes to rooming lists etc. Everybody commented on how well presented the team are coming out and how professional they are throughout the meal service. Beautiful to watch from the top table when you are taking a brief moment to take it all in ? you don’t get too many of them. No sign of waiters and waitresses wandering around a room with plates trying to figure out who is Beef or Hake. Each team came out with the manager, all to the one table and laid down the plates. I can’t remember the F&B’s manager name but she was fantastic organising the tables on the day. She also kept my top table in check for me ? What I really liked about this hotel was the atmosphere and the warmness. It’s a real family feel to it. The General Manager Eoin was also lovely and very supportive. Nothing is a problem at this hotel. To any bride and groom trying to choose a hotel I would highly recommend the Lakeside.

It can be so stressful organising a wedding but Catherine was so detailed and really put me at ease. No matter what query or issue I had she was amazing at sorting it all. They are such a friendly team and the venue is just so beautiful. The food was amazing and small things I noticed, such as the impeccable service, really made the day so special.

The Lakeside Hotel is a perfect venue for any wedding. The day that we got married was the only wet day in May 2016, the staff could not do enough for us and our guests. The food was amazing with a number of our guests commenting that it was the nicest food that they have had at a wedding and there certainly was plenty of it. I must say a special Thank you to Catherine Lewis in particular who looked after everything on the day and on the run up to it. Her attention to detail is phenomenal she looks after everything, really genuine person who takes pride in their work. I would not hesitate to recommend the Lakeside Hotel for their personal attention and Value for money. We also had a family lunch at the hotel the next day and were given a private seating area which was a really nice touch. Thank you to everyone at the Lakeside for making our wedding the special day that it was, despite the rain!

I thought planning my wedding in Limerick Ireland was going to be hard as I live in Boston MA..Was I wrong...From the moment I met Courtney/Catherine, Sinead and staff my worries disappeared. I have always loved the Lakeside since I am from Limerick however when Mark saw the hotel and grounds he fell in love with the place. Everything we ask for we got.Mark had ask thing fro the hotel and that was to have the American flag outside the hotel and he got it.From the first day we went there to see the hotel in 2014 untill our wedding day April 2016 someone was there to answer my questions on phone or email since I was 4000 miles away. Some of our guest who travel from American stayed in the hotel have nothing but good things to say about how helpful the staff were.We spend the whole weekend at the hotel.Our wedding was the Saturday and on Sunday we had a BBQ..On our wedding day everything was perfect.the food was to die for and the staff were amazing.We have nothing bad to say...We cant wait to go back there fro a overnight visit when we come home to Limerick...Wishing everyone there all the best..

We had our Wedding in the Lakeside in April 2016 and it was everything we had hoped for and more. Catherine helped us with all our planning and looked after us on the day. The weather was poor but we still got some lovely photos on the grounds of the hotel by the lake. We had eaten here previously and the food was excellent. The food and drink on arrival on our wedding day went down very well and the function room looked stunning. The staff were extremely attentive and friendly, we can't praise them highly enough. The main meal was even better than our previous tasting and the dance floor was the perfect size for our party (~130 guests plus stage and photobooth). The Bridal suit was spotless and well positioned...the breakfast the next morning was a nice extra. We look forward to going back again! Marie and Michael

I can't speak highly enough of the Lakeside Hotel and the service that was provided to us in the run up to, and on the day of our wedding. The staff at the Hotel were so helpful and made it so easy to plan a wedding when we live 4 hours from the venue. From the reception staff to the event managers they were always friendly, courteous and willing to help with anything. The day of the wedding went so smoothly with no issues or problems. The grounds of the Hotel are absolutely beautiful and perfect for pictures. Everyone I spoke to at the wedding commented that the food was the best they have had at a wedding and the service was next to none. If we could do it all over again, there would be nothing I would change about the venue or the service provided to us. Top class!

Myself and Shane would like to thank all the staff at the Lakeside for helping us in preparations for our wedding and organising such an amazing wedding for us. Everybody has been complimenting the beautiful setting for the ceremony and the dinner, they were amazed by the kindness, helpfulness and the attention to detail by all staff on the day and of course said that the food was amazing. Catherine made us feel very comfortable and at ease in the build-up to the wedding and on the day. It was great and such a relaxed atmosphere. She made sure everything was taken care of to the smallest detail. We had nothing to worry about all we had to do was turn up! And even though we know there’s weddings every week it certainly didn’t feel like that in the build-up or on the day, we were made to feel very important. Nothing was too much to ask from the table plans to arranging the trophy’s and candles. Aisling was also amazing in helping us in any way she could and ensured things ran smoothly on the day sh was great. Sinead in reservations was great to accommodate any requests we had we were very impressed her helpfulness and she couldn’t do enough for us. Even the poor barman who was left looking after some guests till all hours did it with a smile on his face! Everything was excellently organised and taken care of. We both wish we could do it all over again! We honestly couldn’t fault a thing…only that the day had to end!!

We are very glad we picked the lakeside to be the venue for our wedding. From day one when we meet Courtney they made you feel very special, they were very willing to accommodate packages to suit your needs. On the week of the wedding no question was too much or too late to ask. If they were under pressure they never let us feel it. all our guest were more than happy with the food, their accommodation and the over all setting . They took any pressure out of our hands. One of the only thing we would have liked differently would be to have the evening food served later or if this was not possible due to staffing to may have left the food out so guest could have it later as there was not enough time given, as guest were still full from the great dinner!!!

Beautiful setting, we got some amazing photos. Our guests were all very complimentary of the food and the service. There was no delay in tables being served. One thing I really loved is because of the way the room is laid out even though we had a rather large wedding it felt so intimate and extremely comfortable. The hotel were so observant, some people arrived that were not guests and they were all over it and asked them to leave after checking they were unknown to us. There isn't a single thing that they could have done for us to make it any better. From the day we first walked in for a viewing to returning on our 1st anniversary we felt like we were their biggest priority.

To Eoin and all the staff at the Lakeside, a massive thank you for giving us the best day of our lives! From the first point of contact (hi Sinead!) I had a good feeling about the Lakeside - you all made everything so stress-free for us. The staff were wonderful on the day and couldn’t have been more attentive. The food was amazing and we are still getting compliments from our guests. Please pass on our thanks to the chef and his staff. We’re looking forward to coming back for a visit really soon. Thanks so much
