What can we say nathalie and all the staff were amazing, such a relaxed and beautiful atmosphere was created For us which is so important as we and our guests were so relaxed and just partied the night away. The food was beautiful and endless and the reception was beautiful with an abundance of food and drinks. We had so many compliments on how beautiful the room and venue were, how relaxed and nice the hotel staff were and the quality for money and size of the rooms. Nathalie and her team were amazing so approachable and easy to deal with.

Our wedding planning went off without a hitch from start to finish. Sally and Natalie were always easily accessible via e-mail or phone. They were extremely flexible with our wedding package. On our wedding day upon arrival we were delighted to see all of our guests enjoying the drinks reception. There was ample food and drinks for everyone. The hotel looked very well also. Many of our guests also mentioned this to us. The meal and service throughout the meal was excellent. The duty manager (apologies his name escapes us) supervised the meal delivery to the highest and most professional standard. The waiting staff were also extremely professional. We would like to thank them for this. Many of our guests complimented the quality of the food and the efficiency of the service from the kitchen. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Loughrea hotel and spa to our friends and family in the future. We look forward to staying in the hotel again.

I couldn't recommend the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa more! The venue is in a beautiful location overlooking the lake in Loughrea. The ballroom is fabulous with beautiful chandeliers. There is a separate piano lounge which is perfect for the drinks reception. Our wedding coordinator Natalie could not have been more helpful and easy to deal with. She answered all of our questions and never made us feel foolish for asking! She really went above and beyond to make our day special for us. She also helped with my train when getting up to the top table which I didn't realise until I saw the video... thank you Natalie!! All of the staff in the hotel were very helpful, friendly and easy to deal with, in particular Mary in Reservations. The food was amazing and was commented on by all of the guests. No one left hungry! Any couples who are looking for venues should definitely check out the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa.

I can not recommend Natalie and her team in Lough rea hotel and spa enough. The positive feedback we have got from our family and friends about our day and how nice all the staff were during our reception. It has been amazing we are so happy we had our reception in lough rea hotel and spa. And from myself and my husband the professionalism of all the staff during our meal and with setting up everything we could not fault anything, we both had an amazing weekend in the hotel and wish we could do it all over again. I will have no worries recommending this hotel to all my family and friends.

We had our wedding at the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa on the 6th September 2019. It was the best day of our lives! It was everything we wanted and more. The hotel were great to deal with from start to finish. We were blown away by how well the room looked. Indeed the whole hotel was spotless. All our guests are still talking about the beautiful food and the brilliant service. In the run up to the wedding, they were so accommodating with our menu choices and couldn’t do enough to help. Special thanks to Natalie our brilliant wedding coordinator, Martin who was so helpful at our wedding tasting, Mary in Reservations and to Merek the incredible chef. I highly recommend getting married here and would love to do the whole day all over again!

We can't recommend Lough Rea Hotel and Spa enough. All the staff were incredibly helpful and polite, the food was delicious and the honeymoon sweet is amazing with an incredible view of the lake! The hotel was the perfect base for our guests who flew in from around the world to stay and they all had the best time. The hotel is really clean and the bar stays open ridiculously late which meant a lot of sore heads the next day! Sally and Natalie, the wedding planners are brilliant. They helped us tailor our special day with just a few face to face meetings and the rest via emails as we live in London. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Everything was just perfect and great value for money for what you get. We will remember our wedding forever. I'd really recommend having your wedding at Lough Rea Hotel and Spa.

Myself and Kevin just wanted to thank you and all your team for the most beautiful perfect wedding day we could have ever imagined and hoped for. We cannot praise you all enough from the very beginning to the wedding day itself. You were the most amazing group to deal with in every way & we honestly couldn't recommend you enough. The day itself blew us away the drinks reception area and our reception room was amazing. The food was just out of this world and above all the staff were fantastic and so friendly. Everyone that attended has commented on how amazing the hotel was and raving about the food and how friendly and lovely you all were. Sally the wedding coordinator was incredible and so accommodating and easy to deal with - Sally and Ruth made sure we had the most amazing weekend and that everything ran so smoothly. A huge shout out to Martin - He is such an asset to the hotel. He was amazing on the morning of the wedding and is such a kind and lovely person. It really was a pleasure to have him around on the morning of the wedding checking in to make sure we were ok and if we needed anything. We honestly can't thank you all enough. We will be forever grateful that we had the pleasure to meet and deal with you all & that we made the perfect decision by having our wedding in the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa. The whole weekend was above and beyond our expectations and that is down to you all! Wishing you all every continued success - Althea & Kevin x

Absolutely amazing! Couldn’t fault anything, the service was very good and the meal was beautiful, all our guests were very impressed! Nothing was ever too much to ask and my flower girl sat at top table and she was well looked after by all staff! The best part was that even when the night was over and we were in the residents bar the bartender made me a ham and cheese sandwich when I asked for one! I was fully expecting him to say no at 5 in the morning but he did without any objections! Absolutely amazing hotel, could not recommend it enough as you will be treated like royalty!

From the day we booked our wedding with the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa, they were so helpful, professional and accommodating. Sally helped us plan our big day for months and made everything so easy for us! The attention to detail was amazing and nothing was missed on the day that we had asked for. Sally always replied to our many emails very quick and was always so helpful with everything, she took the stress out of planning a wedding! The staff at the hotel overall are excellent, from the waiting staff to bar staff to reservations staff, they were all brilliant. The food was so amazing, many guests told us afterwards that they really enjoyed the meal. The food was out so quick for everyone which was brilliant. Ruth and Brian were there on the day and everything ran so smoothly. Ruth kept checking in with us to see if we needed anything, and we were able to relax for the day as everything was organised so well. I would give the hotel a 10 of 10 for weddings!! They exceeded our expectations, and we were so grateful that we could also enjoy the build up to the wedding stress-free, we knew we were in good hands and didn't need to worry about anything. Thanks to everyone at the hotel for a super day!!!

What can we say about the Loughrea hotel and spa? Over the last 18 months, we have had an amazing experience. The management and staff have been nothing short of amazing. We were treated so well and the lead up to our wedding we had over 140 guests arrive from Tipperary UK and Dublin. The food was fantastic and asking all our guests how was everything they had nothing but good things to say about the hotel staff rooms and food. Karen was the first wedding coordinator we met and then we met Sally who was there for us at everything we needed, so helpful and kind and anything we asked was done. Thank you Sally so much. You are so fabulous at what you do. All the staff from front of house, bar, waiting restaurant floor, all staff were so lovely and helpful. Our wedding day we could not have asked for more and everyone was treated like kings and queens. Food was amazing and we asked each table how was food and they had all enjoyed it so much. Thanks to the chefs and kitchen staff. Everything went off more than we expected and more again. They worked with our suppliers so well and nothing was too much trouble. Sometimes things happen and go wrong and if anything went wrong it was fixed in an instant. A fantastic hotel with fantastic staff Food rooms and amazing rooftop. Thank you Loughrea and all of you that are there for making our wedding a time we will never forget. We will be back. Lots of love Ger & Stefano xxxxx

From the very first visit to the hotel, we were sure it was right for us! The meeting with the original wedding coordinator was so relaxing and stress free! We gave her an idea of our budget and some dates and she worked through everything with us! Then we had a transition to a new coordinator, which worried me at first but was seamless! Sally was brilliant from start to finish! And put up with all of my million questions with such patience!! The food was so highly complimented by all the guests! The staff were incredibly flexible as we had a few unusual requests in terms of evening entertainment and nothing was a problem! I honestly cannot fault a single thing from booking it through to two days after the wedding when we eventually left! We would highly recommend it as a wedding venue to anybody! It’s exceptional value for money!

The support was honestly above and beyond anything I expected, I really felt you were there for whatever we needed and nothing was too much. I’m not sure where to start with our wedding day, everything was perfect. From the wonderful customer service delivered by your staff, to the delicious food from the chefs, the thoughtful and tasteful room decor, the fantastic attention to detail, to the generous round of drinks from the owner and the care and attention given to our guests at all times.

The venue is lovely, your own private piano room/lounge for the drinks reception, the wedding suite is beautiful! The food was great, as all our guests commented. The onsite spa is handy for getting tan and nails done in advance, along with hair and makeup on the day. We had a number of lunchs at the hotel over the Christmas period and all the staff were friendly and efficient.

After the first dance i was having trouble tying the train of my dress, Thankfully the lovely Catherine in reception saved the day and managed to get it sorted. The food was out of this world and 4 weeks later our guests are still talking about it. We invited our guests to staye for a second night and we enjoyed a barbecue on the rooftop bar to continue on our celebrations. Again the food was just amazing and more than enough to go around. Although my big day was over Karen still went out of her way to pop up and make sure everything was going well and that we were happy! The bar staff and night manager were so lovely, they were full of craic even heading into the early hours of the morning. Our day was everything we hoped for and more, Thank you so much to all the amazing people involved! Legends <3 Aisling & Andy Dunne "

We live overseas so had to organise our wedding from abroad and so happy we chose Loughrea Hotel. Karen was great to work with, she was so organised and always responded quickly to any questions we had and nothing was an issue. On the day everything was amazing and it was so well organised that we didnt have to think or worry about anything as the hotel were so onto it. The rooftop bar was amazing too and we had a party there the day after our wedding. I would highly recommend Loughrea hotel and highly rate Karen as a wedding coordinator.

We could not praise the staff of the lough rea hotel enough. Our wedding day was absolutely amazing from start to finish and it is still being praised by our guests. Karen and all staff members went out of their way to ensure everything went perfectly and it did. Nothing was too big or small for them to deal with and the hotel is amazing value for such service. The food is on par with any 5* resturant if not better. I couldnt recommend this hotel enough for anyone thinking of getting married or for any occasion.

We held our wedding reception in The Lough Rea Hotel & Spa in Loughrea on the 30th of October this year.  From our first meeting, the General Manager John Coen, gave us a very warm welcome and was completely professional.  All our requests were catered for no matter how unusual.  The standard of food and service on the day of our wedding was exceptional. There is an excellent team of staff throughout the hotel, each of whom are friendly, courteous and professional.  On the lead up to our big day we received great help, support and advice from John.  On the day of our wedding our guests were blown away by the fabulous hotel, the excellent service, the high quality of food which was served promptly by a great team in a beautifully decorated ballroom with a fantastic atmosphere.  Our meal was out of this world and served hot with generous portions.  It was enjoyed immensely by all our guests.  John had our day run to perfection.  He was in contact with all other suppliers we had booked for the day to ensure the smooth running of our wedding day for us. On the night after, we enjoyed a lovely time with our family and friends in the hotel's roof top bar where we had live music, drinks and finger food.  We had a brilliant night in this wonderful facility and again John was there to ensure our night was enjoyed by everyone.  I would highly recommend The Lough Rea Hotel & Spa to any couple considering it for their wedding reception.

From the minute we walked in the door to view the hotel we knew we would love it. We can't praise and thank Karen and all the staff enough for everything they did and also for their attention to detail. Every single member of staff went above and beyond for our special day. The food was a big hit with our guests. This is a fantastic wedding venue. I cannot say enough about this hotel, our wedding day was amazing. Thank you all so much. David and Aislin x

We got married in the Loughrea Hotel and Spa in July 2015. From our first viewing of the hotel at a wedding show the November previous we were totally taken by the sheer awesomeness of the hotel. Karen and her team couldnt do enough for us and met all our needs. On the day the piano lounge was bright and spacious, all our guests(300+) enjoyed the drinks reception and piano player. The decor in the function room was spectacular and emphasised our colour theme. The staff were amazing. Food was top notch. Everyone of our guests was very impressed by the service. Also the hotel couldn't have been more helpful catering for our two children. We would and have recommended the Loughrea Hotel and Spa to other couples getting married.

We attended a family wedding in the Loughrea Hotel and Spa on July 16th 2015 and was blown away by the Service and friendliness of staff. We arrived after the service to check in and was greeted by a very friendly receptionist named Mary. Check in was fast and Mary was very efficient. We proceeded to our room. The view our room was breathtaking looking over Loughrea Lake. We then proceeded to the arrivals area where there was lovely piano music been played to entertain guests and were greeted by smiling waiting staff offering food and beverages for guests. The meal was amazing, the best Beef i had tasted! Sophie was our waitress and was very attentive checking on our table at each course and topping up our wine and water. We were so delighted with the venue that we now have booked our own wedding for 2017 at the Loughrea Hotel. Karen has been excellent to deal with and nothing was a trouble. We were able to amend a few minor details in our package and again it was all about what we wanted and making sure we were happy with everything! We are so excited to be planning our Wedding here and know we have picked the right venue!!

From the imprint we walked through the door of the hotel we knew this is where we were having our wedding. John, Karen and Mary made everything run so smooth from start to finish and were available to talk to and answer any question day or night. There were so Many things that they had taken care of that we did not even think about until the run up to the wedding. It's such a professional venue to have your wedding in and they are also so open to ideas when you want to put your own "slant" on your special day. Could not have asked for more.

All our guests loved the hotel, rooms were large and comfortable. There was also a spa so our guests could relax the next day and also spent time on the hotels roof top garden, where we had a bbq the next day. It was really relaxing and served lovely cocktails.

It is quite hard to organize a wedding from abroad but at no stage had we to worry about anything as you were always prompt to reply to our emails and queries.

Colm & I got married on March 30th and we held our reception in the Lough Rea Hotel. When we were looking for a venue to hold our wedding reception we looked into 5 hotels and this hotel by far ticked all our boxes. We were so impressed from the start by the welcome we got from the staff and they were so helpful. It was an easy decision in the end. Our first meeting with Helen was super and we were put at ease straight away, Helen made sure that everything we wanted was included in our package and at a great price too. Helen was able to guide us and we found her to be very good at what she does. She was always quick to respond to my emails and calls and no question or request was ever let unattended. We were so happy with the way our big day. The champagne greeting we got on arrival from the staff, the lovely comments from the staff, the drinks reception area everything was just so perfect. From the second we arrived we were treated like royalty. Our time plan from arrival to the time of dinner ran perfectly and this goes down to the brilliant staff and to Helen. The function room was decorated exactly the way I wanted it. It really is an amazing room when you see it all done up. There was loads of space of our 180 guests and plenty of room for them all to dance the night away... The food and drink at the reception was amazing. It was a big request of ours that the food taste amazing and hot, and after the meal tasting we requested the soup to have a little kick to it and chef did not let us down. The honeymoon suite is lovely , really relaxing and out of all the honeymoon suites we saw when looking into venues for our wedding this room was really the best , large spacious, well furnished, lovely view of the lake , we even booked into it for the night after the wedding. Helen and the staff at Lough Rea hotel are amazing I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding or any other function.... We haven’t a bad word to say about it. If we got the chance to redo the day all over again there isn’t a thing we would change... EVERTHING WAS AMAZING.......

We had a really magical wedding day. The Loughrea Hotel and Spa is a fabulous venue for a wedding. We would really recommend it to any couple how are looking for a hotel with great food, helpful and cheery staff and a beautifully decorated dining room which can be easy to work with for any color theme. The staff insured they did what they could and more to make our big day, the day we wanted. Our guests really enjoyed their time there too and talked about the fresh and modern style to the hotel and bedrooms. If we were to get married again we would pick the Loughrea Hotel and Spa every time

We really enjoyed our weekend there, and our wedding day which surprised me as I so was not looking forward to it. Everything went perfect, well in my eyes anyway. Thank you again for all your help, you were a pleasure to deal with and also a bit of crack so that helped break the ice for me in my little stressful time in my life. Sincerely
