We recently had our wedding at the Midlands Park Hotel, what a fantastic venue we had an amazing day, all our guests are raving about the staff, food and the way they were looked after. We had guests staying from London and Australia and many parts of the country and for certain they will book again. Special thanks to Marie Healy she was just fantastic from day one, we had some great fun planning our day with her nothing was Impossible, what an absolute gem you have as part of your staff, many thanks again we will never forget it.

We recently got married on the 06/04/2023. We booked our wedding with Marie and she made everything so simple and easy. We had previously looked at other venues as we didn’t realise The Midlands Park provided intimate weddings and we didn’t have great experiences. After a quick call with Marie to schedule a meeting and then meeting with her it was a breath of fresh air. All our stress went away after our first meeting and excitement kicked in. We had an intimate wedding and our day could not have went any better. Not a single thing would we change. We used the O More Suite for our civil ceremony and then for our evening reception. Nothing was too much trouble for Marie, she is amazing at her job. From the decor to the food, everything was top quality service. Everyone is still complementing the food so hats off to the chefs. Anything we needed or wanted was no issue. The bridal suite is just out of this world. You won’t regret booking your wedding with The Midlands Park Hotel ????Aileen & Joe Moore

From the very first meeting Marie set us at ease. No request was too big or small, she accommodated us at every turn during the lead up with her friendly manner and professional attitude. The day went extremely well and Marie and her team were on hand for everything. The food and service was out of this world and our guests all commented on this. I would highly recommend the Midlands Park Hotel as an excellent choice for your wedding. Thank you to all the team at the Midlands Park for making our day so special.

We got married in Midlands Park Hotel and can honestly say we had the best weekend of our lives!! The food, the service, the staff, everything!! We have been planning alongside Marie and Sandra who did everything to ensure our day ran smoothly. If we wanted to alter or amend anything slightly there was never any issue to do so. Every guest commented on the quality of food at dinner and day 2. The staff working on the night were extremely polite and professional from the waiting staff to the coordinators. We cannot thank you all enough for adding to our special day!

John and I were recently married in the Midlands Park Hotel and we had the absolute best day. The Midlands Hotel looked absolutely stunning and as always the staff were excellent. On the day of the wedding, they could not have done more for us and the guests were complementing them throughout the entire day. The food was absolutely delicious and everybody was so happy with their food and afters. We were just so happy with how everything went. The hotel made our day so easy for us so Thank you Midlands for that. We planned our wedding in a short time frame and we could not have done this without our excellent wedding coordinator Marie Healy. We met with Marie back in August and four months later we celebrated our wedding day. Marie was so approachable and great to offer guidance and recommendations throughout. Any questions or concerns we brought to Marie, she was prompt to get back to us and always set us on the right track. Leading up to the day when stress levels were rising a little, she always reassured us and told us the Midlands team were there to take care of it. On the day, she was so attentive and most importantly calming to be around. She met us at the door and was there to guide us throughout the whole day. I cannot thank her enough for all of her help throughout our entire experience even when our emails may have consumed her a little. We started our journey with a wedding coordinator and we left with a friend. Marie is a lady and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. So we would like to sincerely thank her for all her great efforts and guidance throughout. Thank you very much Mr. & Mrs Coghlan

Our wedding on the 20th of October was everything we expected it to be, from the moment we walked into the hotel and met Marie our amazing wedding Co-ordinater we felt like we were the most important guests in the hotel just for one day. All the staff made us feel so special and the whole day was made amazing, Marie and the team could not do enough for us and they worked so hard in the background to make sure we and our guests enjoyed our day from start to finish. I can’t say enough about the organisation, the food the rooms the whole experience was phenomenal, if you are considering The Midlands Park Hotel for your wedding then look no further from the planning to the end result you will not find another more hard working team. Thanks to each and every member of staff to many to name who made our wedding day the best that it could ever be.

We had our reception at the midlands park hotel and I can not recommend this hotel enough. Such a stunning hotel with amazing bedrooms with the bridal suite being second to none. Marie and staff were just amazing from the moment we entered. There is no words for how amazing the food was and all guests were offered second/third helpings if wanted. Not only the dinner but the after food was exceptional. I could ramble on for ever on how perfect the midlands park hotel is. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone

Myself and Dean got married in The Midland Park Hotel in September 2022. From the minute we walked into the Midlands Park and met Marie we just knew it was the perfect venue for us. Marie made everything so fun and stress free and nothing we asked was ever too much. Every time we met Marie she made us feel so welcome and relaxed and we knew she was going to do anything to ensure we had the perfect day. Our meal tasting was a lovely experience and we had lots of advice in helping to create a perfect menu. On the day the attention to detail was amazing. The decor was fabulous, and the food was gorgeous. All our guests are still commenting on the delicious food. Alot of our guests traveled and stayed in the hotel for 2 to 3 nights and all were impressed with the bedrooms. Everything in the Midlands Park was perfect and we couldn't recommend a better venue for a wedding day.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Marie, Rian and Anna and all the staff of The Midlands Park Hotel for the top class service they gave us on the lead up and during our wedding it was second to none. Everything was dealt with in a very professional but friendly manner we were able to approach each lady with any question we had no matter how silly we thought we were been and their response was always honest and very helpful. That showed by the feedback we got from our guests they greatly complemented the hotel and staff for the brilliant day they had and fabulous food they had on the day. We cannot recommend the hotel highly enough for our amazing day from beginning to end which was down to your hard work and professionalism. We were in very safe hands with Marie we had no stress or worry about our day she went above and beyond to make our day as magical as it was her attention to detail is phenomenal.

We had our wedding day in Midlands Park Hotel in August. We couldn't recommend this hotel enough. The staff are incredible so friendly and attentive. The food is just out of this world and so much of it too. Marie is an excellent wedding coordinator. She is so easy to get on with and so professional. So responsive to emails and nothing was too much trouble. Her attention to detail is second to none and the way all our decor was laid out on the day was just perfect. The room looked stunning too. Ana the banqueting manager is amazing too, she was so good to us at our meal tasting and helped us come up with the perfect menu and looked after us so well on the day. Also Sharon the restaurant manager who looked after us at our day 2 celebrations was such a fabulous person and so good to us. An absolute gem. We honestly couldn't fault this hotel at all.

From when we booked for December 2020 to finally getting our fairytale wedding day onJuly 23rd 2022 The Midlands Park Staff were just incredible. This hotel was the only hotel we looked at as a possible venue. We just knew it was everything we wanted. Marie went above and beyond for us. Everything I asked for and hoped for I got with no problems along the way. On the day everything was just perfect. I wanted to add alot of my own touches and the staff accommodated everything I asked for. The meal was fantastic and all guest were so happy with it. We also had our day two celebrations in the hotel which the staff set the room up just as we had it for our wedding day which was such a lovely touch.

We have been dealing with the Midlands Park for the last 4 years as we were postponed due to Covid, the team at the midlands especially Marie our wedding coordinator were amazing, everything was dealt with by the highest standard and they really did relieve all the stress with ensuring the plan and set up of the venue is perfect, everything about the midlands is outstanding. All our guests are still talking about the quality and standard of the food and service on the day. We enjoyed every minute of the day and didn’t have to worry about a thing as Marie ensured everything we wanted and more was in place. The hotel is really a perfect venue for a wedding and the staff really make everyone feel they are at home. Another team member to mention is Anna who ensures the service of the meal is second to none, Anna has great experience and is there to ensure you can sit back and enjoy the day. We have recommended the hotel to friends, the decor and friendly staff make it such an enjoyable experience.

What an amazing hotel. From the moment we went to the hotel to book our wedding we were treated impeccably. The staff are friendly and ever so helpful. The food is so tasty and plentiful. The hotel is spotless, so clean and beautifully decorated. Marie was dedicated to every detail and plan. She made planning our wedding easy. She gave us ideas and advice. Rhiain looked after us so well, ensuring everything went smoothly. So professional, ensuring both of us were happy and stress free. The service during the dinner was flawless. Both ladies answered questions we didn't realise we had! When our dj didn't show up, leaving us with no music, the team went above and beyond and organised a miracle. Within half an hour they had a brilliant DJ, Pj the Dj, at the venue and set up. What could have ruined our whole wedding day was rescued by this fantastic team. Not only are these two woman amazing, all of the staff are too. From helping us to plan an amazing wedding to creating the amazing day.... thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

From the moment we arrived to the minute we left we experienced nothing but the best at the Midlands Park Hotel. From the preparations for our ceremony to the professionalism with which our reception was handled, we never had to worry about a thing. The three days we were resident at the hotel, we were treated like Royalty!! We came to know so many of the staff purely through their efforts and the friendliness they showed us. To our co-ordinator Marie, to Anna, Alan, Aidan, and all the staff at the hotel, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our time with you unforgettable for us and for both our extended families. Our day is still being talked about and you are still being praised. It will be remembered for years to come because of your hard work and kindness. We look forward to seeing you all again very soon.

Marie, Anna and team were amazing from start to finish. Marie’s ability to listen and notice what we felt was important removed any worries keeping the day calm and flowing. They just made us feel like stars especially when we arrived back to the hotel after our pictures and theatrics around the dinner service. Everyone had an amazing day and enjoyed their food, their rooms and overall stay. The only feedback I would give is serving out the wedding cake. Not a lot of people realised it was in the corner and therefore we went home with a lot of cake. Apart from that we would do it all again in a heartbeat with this hotel it’s definitely a 10 out of 10 for us. Thank you for sharing and adding to our special day. You were all amazing.

We had out very Special Wedding Day on 14th May 2022 in Rosenallis and then onto the Midlands Park Hotel for our Wedding Reception. From the moment we booked our Wedding here we instantly felt that this was our dream hotel. George helped us figure out everything and was so helpful. Marie was our wedding coordinator and we have to say she was an absolute dream to work with. we were so relaxed and at ease with Marie she looked after everything for us. we had a few meetings with her to go though everything for our Wedding day and she made us feel so chill and relaxed about everything. We were in contact with Sandra also via emails who was super helpful to us and really made us feel everything would be perfect and to stop stressing and worrying over things. Anna who was looking after us for our taster and our wedding menu was so so lovely, she was so helpful and any changes we made she wrote them down straight way and then went through everything with us again. she was just such a lovely helpful person. I have an allergy to eggs and was worried about this but she went above and beyond to ensure i was happy and looked after. we had alot of people with allergies and other special requirements and between Anna and Marie they could not have done more for everyone they were both superb. On our wedding day we arrived in our wedding car and was met by Marie, George and Anna outside with champagne and strawberries and a big hug and smiles. The three of them are just so lovely. Our colour theme was yellow and they even had little yellow bows on their uniforms for us that was so special and we noticed straight away. its these little things that made our day so magical. We then went into the hotel and met everyone and then Marie showed us our ballroom to make sure everything was perfect for us and it was so much more than perfect we were amazed. it could not have been anymore perfect the details the hotel went to were spectacular. When we sat down we had our meal which was absolutely delicious the most amazing and tasty food we ever had. Anna looked after our top table with drinks etc so we didn't have to do anything which was so lovely. they couldn't have been more helpful. The whole day was so magical and so much more than we had ever dreamed of. We would highly recommend the Midlands park Hotel to any couple trying to decide on where to have their wedding. It was just above and beyond and we couldn't have had a more special and amazing day. George, Marie, Anna, Sandra and all the staff at the midlands park hotel were so so helpful, so reassuring and made our day for us so relaxed and so so enjoyable. I tended to worry over things but Marie ensured everything would be looked after and it most defiantly was. Advice i would give to future couples is this hotel is state of the Art, The staff are absolutely amazing, the food was delicious, the rooms were so clean and lovely and dont stress the small things you are in such great hands. We couldn't have picked a more amazing hotel it was out of this world. we had the most magical, special day and the staff here went absolutely above and beyond for us and we are so thankful. Thank You all so so much from the bottom of our hearts.

The service and the food on the day of the wedding was flawless. One of my biggest fears was that people would be queueing for a drink and there would be tables full of empty glasses but on the day the staff were on top of all of this which did not go unnoticed. We are still having people talking about the meal everyone really enjoyed every part of it, especially the beef so I would like to thank Anna for getting us to try it and changing Adrian’s mind. We have since had quite a few people going over there to get dinner because the food at the wedding was so good. The one thing that I will say we were really disappointed with was the fact our guests had no canapés on arrival. It was only when we got there and asked that the food was brought out. It seemed like our guests were only getting the canapés and a few minutes later they were being called for dinner. I do feel this was disappointing as it was one thing I had stated as I did not want our guests to be hungry and I had stressed this in many meetings. That said, we did go on to have an amazing day the staff were very helpful and with the exception of the canapés everything else went very smoothly.

I am so happy that I booked to have my ceremony and wedding reception in the Midlands Park Hotel. My wedding planner Marie was extremely helpful, attentive and professional throughout the whole experience - she made the whole process extremely easy and stress free for us. Any query I contacted her with I got a quick response every time and she was always extremely friendly and helpful. On the day of the wedding everything ran so smoothly, the ceremony room and reception was decorated beautifully by the hotel and the food was amazing!! The service we received was top quality. I could not praise the hotel staff high enough, they provided the highest level of service and were so helpful and inviting to everyone who attended. The bar man we had for the night Alan, even went as far as entertaining my nephew with some colouring books at the evening reception, which made his night. Everyone in the hotel just went out of their way for us and made our day so special and I am so grateful to all of them. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this hotel to any couple considering their wedding venue in the future - everything was absolutely perfect and the service you receive is exceptional.

We cannot hype Marie and all the staff of Midlands Park Hotel (and the hotel itself) up enough! From the very first email sent the whole team made the planning an absolute breeze. No detail was left to chance, absolutely everything was looked after in its entirety and with such ease. It made the whole experience so enjoyable. That relaxed atmosphere that the staff created on the day was one of my highlights, there was no fuss, just smiling staff and guests from start to finish. The food was truly immense. All of our guests could not stop raving about it. Hats off to the chef! The catering staff were so polite and accommodating. I didn't speak much about the hotel itself - it's incredible. It is as advertised and as seen in the pictures. It speaks for itself. Gorgeous. I can, hand on heart, say that I do not have one negative thing to say about having our wedding in this fab hotel. There isn't a single thing that I would change. I cannot thank all the staff enough for all they did for us. It was magical.

Marie, George, Ana, Rhian and all the staff at the Midlands Park Hotel. As a couple faced with booking a venue online during lockdown, the team at the Midlands Park were so helpful and understanding about our predicament. No other hotel we contacted were as accommodating considering the circumstances we found ourselves in. When we finally got to visit the venue and got the grand tour with George, we knew we had chosen correctly. Marie guided us smoothly through the whole wedding planning stage. She made it effortless for us both, to the point that we had ourselves almost convinced we had forgotten lots of things! She was always at the end of a line if we needed her and gave her honest opinion on the questions, we had for her. And as an added extra, she's a great sense of humour and we had a laugh along the way! Our wedding tasting meal was fantastic. We were given undivided attention from Ana for the whole experience. We really appreciated the fact that she questioned our choices and made us bear in mind our guests as well as ourselves. The chef also saw our choice of beef but insisted we tried the feather blade, which we went for on the day. People are still talking about it, especially those who got offered an extra portion! On the day the food was to the same high standard and plentiful. The venue and day itself were stunning. From the moment we arrived, we were met by Marie and George with glasses of prosecco and brought to the area exclusively for our wedding. The layout of our music, the prosecco and beer reception and the canapes being brought around were fabulous. The staff were more than attentive to us both ensuring we had a drink and canape in hand if we wished. The timings and coordination of everything on the day were impeccable. Right up until the time early the next morning when we retired to the amazing honeymoon suite, full of crisp sambos! Neither of us have been married before, so obviously we have nothing to compare our day to! But we honestly could not have asked for a more perfect day, thanks to the Midlands Park Hotel and all our friends and family who got to enjoy it with us and make it a day like no other, a day we will never forget. Míle buíochas.

We would like to thank Marie and all the staff at Midlands Park Hotel. This was third time lucky for us! Throughout all the postponing and rearranging Marie and all other staff members did everything possible to help us. On the day all staff members were excellent, they couldn't do enough for us or for our guests. All of our guests couldn't praise the food enough. They all loved that the main course was buffet, they loved that they could pick and choose what to have. We would highly recommend Midlands Park Hotel to any couple looking for the perfect location for their Wedding day or any function.

For all you couples out there looking for something exceptional for your special wedding day... the search is over. Marie and all of her team were outstanding, from the very first encounter with her, she was full of positivity and enthusiasm which was so comforting. She will be there 200% to assist your every request. From the very start everything in the planning was made so easy and we really didn't think about the reception side of this too much during the wedding planning as we felt it was being completely taken care of and we were right to think so. Everything about the day was perfect and the staff couldn't do enough for us or our guests. We ended up staying the night after the wedding as well and again the staff went above and beyond. The food was absolutely fantastic from start to finish, including dinner, late night finger food and breakfast. We ate in the Charter Bar the following day too and it was also outstanding. All staff in every area of the hotel are extremely friendly and so accommodating. You will not regret your decision to book Midlands Park Hotel for your dream wedding.

Could not fault midlands park hotel for everything they did for us on our wedding day. Marie is so helpful and calming which benefits a highly strung bride greatly. The food was out of this world. Anna is outstanding in her way of serving food, delegating staff and in general an absolute gem for midlands park hotel. Even to our menu tasting Anna knew everything about the food. Can’t wait to return for our anniversary next year.

We were lucky enough to recently get married in the Midlands Park Hotel, Portlaoise, and cannot recommend this hotel enough. As we were one of many couples due to marry during the Covid pandemic, we were nearly three years dealing with the hotel for our wedding. We had to postpone once, and the hotel could not have been more accommodating with offering us new dates and transferring over deposits and package details etc. In the last year Marie has come in as the wedding planner in the hotel, and you couldn't be in safer hands! She was a pleasure to deal with, so helpful and responsive, even emailing over make-up, tan and music supplier suggestions the day before the wedding when we were dealing with last minute Covid cancellations. The attention to detail on the day was fantastic with Marie, Anna, Rian, Joe and the team just ensuring everything went so smoothly. Many guests commented on the food on the day, both food and drink were plentiful and the quality was fabulous. I honestly don't feel we could have been looked after any better elsewhere, and I couldn't recommend the hotel enough in terms of service, flexibility, comfort and value! 100% recommend to other couples based on our recent experience. Thanks to all in the Midlands Park Hotel for helping to make our day so very special!

Marie was fantastic all the way through and right before I left the room to go down to our civil ceremony. I cannot thank these ladies enough they are an amazing team, as are the rest of the hotel staff! Reception, bar waiting staff and accomadation! We literally wanted for nothing.

From start to finished the Midlands Park was amazing. The staff were so friendly and professional. All my queries were answered promptly and all staff were so nice. The day of the wedding was perfect, exactly what myself and my husband pictured. Nothing was too big or to small to be changed or added. Guests are still talking about the amazing food, I've never tasted anything as delicious. Friends of mine who attended my wedding in the Midlands Park have book the hotel for their wedding next year. If I was to do it all over again I would change nothing and the Midland Park would be top of my list.

We got married in August 2020, a crazy time for weddings, given that we were in and out of lockdowns and restricted in numbers. But we just wanted a small, intimate, civil ceremony with a small gathering of family and closest friends. The team at the Midlands Park provided exactly that, and better! From start to finish, the events team Emma and Joanna understood exactly what we were aiming for and accommodated all our wishes. From the beaufully but simply decorated function room for the ceremony, to the delicious BBQ on the adjacent terrace, we felt like we were in our own private bubble, and pampered all day. Communication with the hotel was excellent all along, food was delicious, and great value! It was a brilliant day, better than we could have imagined, and the sun even shone all day, what are the chances?!

We had our day in the Midlands Park Hotel on Nov 9th. We were so appreciative to everyone at the hotel for giving us a fantastic day. All our guests throughout the evening and day complimented the staff on their manner and approach. They were nice, caring and welcoming to our guests. The hotel was complimented over and over again on its decor and many had not been in the hotel before and couldn’t believe from the street what was behind the doors once they walked in. The food got the highest of praise with the featherblade beef being a clear favorite and many noted how second servings of meat and veg came round to their tables. The service was excellent with no delay to any table. From myself and colm personally, we would like to thank Briona, George, Aidan, Rhiam, Anna and all the staff. Once we pulled up in the wedding car, you were all there to guide us and bring us along the way throughout the evening, making us feel like VIPs for the day. We will be forever grateful. Words can’t describe our happiness at picking the hotel for our wedding and how you made us feel on the day but this review will hopefully give you some inclination that the Midlands Park Hotel will forever be a special place in our hearts. We had an amazing day and that comes down to you and the hotel. Thank you so much for everything you did.

Dear Bríona, We would like to thank you, all the management and staff that helped us prepare for our wedding day. On the day everything ran like clockwork from a well-oiled machine. It was hypnotising to watch you all work seamless and so well together. You are all amazing people who truly made the day magical for both myself, Damien and all our guests. Every guest I spoke to that was in attendance at our wedding could not fault the hotel or more importantly the praise they had for all staff members, nothing was too much trouble or effort and you all made ours guests feel as special as we did on the day and the next for those that stayed, for that we cannot thank you enough. The hotel is something but the staff!! We really have no words to describe how amazing we think you all are. I would recommend the hotel to anyone that will listen, I have had family and friends say that they are definitely booking a weekend in the hotel as the staff are just brilliant. Well what can we say about the food other than the 2nd and 3rd helpings that some had (my brother had plenty) went down an absolute treat. Every guest raved about the food they were served and how well the service went, no one was left waiting on food, no one had to ask for extra gravy (a bridesmaid loves Gravy). Some started with beef and then had the fish and others did it the other way around, so everyone got what they asked for and so much more. I am not sure where to put a review on your website so if you want to take anything from the emails and upload it to your website please do so. I will 100,000,000% stand over it. Again THANK YOU SO MUCH from Catherine & Damien.

Wow, where do I start! We had our wedding in the Midlands Park Hotel on the 20th of September 2019. From the day we walked through the doors to view the hotel and pay deposit, to the morning we left after our wedding, we were blown away by the kindness and professionalism given to us by all the staff at the Midlands Park hotel. Briona, George & Ana are the dream team! From our many chats and emails with Briona in the lead up to the big day to the day itself I couldnt have expected anything to be done any more perfectly. Briona is amazing at what she does and we always knew we were well looked after in the best hands. Our family and friends all commented on how amazing the hotel was not just its appearance, which is simply beautiful, but the way the day just ran so seamlessly. The food is still being spoken about amongst our guests 4months since the wedding. The featherblade steak being the favourite of the day. I dont think anyone has had a meat like it before, nor will they since it! Anyone who ordered the feather blade steak got to have seconds of roast turkey and ham and vice versa for those who chose the turkey. Many had seconds and thirds. And Ana was on hand to help any of our guests who had special requirements and to ensure that everybody had a full belly for working off on the dancefloor afterwards! And as for George, he is an absolute gentleman! Ensured we weren't stressed or worried on the day and gave us many a laugh during our few trips to the hotel during the planning and prep and he had smiles on our faces throughout the whole day. We hadn't to worry about a thing from start to finish! From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank you all for making our wedding day the most special day of our lives and for giving us such beautiful memories to remember for the rest of our days!

No problem was too much for the hotel to sort out quickly and to our satisfaction.

The level of care continued even after the day itself with the wedding coordinator Briona keeping our wedding topper safe months after the wedding. It’s gestures like this that make the Midlands Park Hotel unbeatable and truly a magical location.

Food is fantastic here never had a bad meal in the hotel rooms are great and the staff in general are very good. My biggest argument with them was they made a complete hash of the table arrangements. Sent them in the layout etc and on the day they changed it without letting us know. We only realised when the guests had sat down for the first course that most of my wife's family was to the side or the back and not in the front like we had originally planned for. Had a chat with the manager on the day of our wedding not a great start. They did take money off the final bill as way of apology but that is not much good when you have an upset bride. Overall taking that aside the hotel is brilliant and I would go again. My advice is check the seating plan before any of your guests sit down that way you will make sure that it is how you want it.

We had excellent service from the hotel throughout the wedding planning stage of about 12 months. The staff are amazing, all so friendly and helpful. The wedding meal was fantastic and all our guests thought so too. We had the best day and the wedding events staff did not miss any detail. Even helped get the matron of honor dress to a local seamstress and back again with a last minute busted zip one hour before the ceremony. I never complete reviews but felt I had to in this instance. I traveled to Ireland to marry my Irish husband and so glad I did. Wonderful staff that deserve praise and recognition for all their hard work.

She was a pleasure to work with and we really felt that nothing we asked was ever too much. All our guests really enjoyed the whole experience and hotel, everyone commented on how great the hotel looked, how delicious the food was and how Anna kept everything running so smoothly on the night. The whole hotel is really beautiful, especially the bridal suite which is amazing. All the staff were really helpful and very friendly. We would recommend the Midlands Park Hotel to anyone for their wedding.

Our wedding at the Heritage Portlaoise was wonderful from start to finish. The staff were very prompt and professional on the day. The food was absolutely top notch and many of our guests were still complimenting the ballroom, the food and the service for many weeks after our wedding. The newly renovated ballroom was a beautiful setting for what was a very special day for us.

“5 star” 2 words come to mind, fantastic hotel. Myself and my hubby were married here on Friday November 7th. To say we were treated like royalty is an understatement. Every single staff member from the Thursday until the Saturday went out of their way to accommodate us; a few to mention are of course Carol Dempsey, Duty Managers Aidan and Doug. We cannot thank you all enough for a truly amazing day, everything from food to service was 5* thank you so much.

5 star.We had our wedding in The Heritage hotel on the 16th of October, what a fantastic day. We would recommend the hotel to anybody thinking of using it as their venue. From the time we booked in October last year they have been great. We can not thank Carol Dempsey enough for all her help. What a lovely person to deal with. From the minute we arrived at the reception of our wedding everything was perfect. Food, service, our bridal suit and the ball room, all amazing. Thanks again guys. :)

From the moment myself and Emmet booked our wedding at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel everything was so well organised by the staff, we never had to worry about anything, Sandra was one of the team that was dealing with us and was in close contact with us in the months running up to our wedding day we never had to worry. We have had so many happy memories of the hotel. Our guests had nothing but excellent reviews about the day, the service was excellent from the moment we arrived at the hotel on the day until we left 2 days later. We would highly recommend the hotel for your special day

My fiancée and I visited the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel a year before we planned to get married. It wasn’t a big wedding by any means, but our wedding coordinator explained that they only did one wedding per day so that they could concentrate purely on that one wedding. Our wedding coordinator Carol couldn’t have been more helpful and often gave us valuable advice. So the big day arrived, I got ready in the hotel and the duty manager on the day was so kind. The banqueting room where our wedding reception was to be held looked fantastic with large candles, mirror centre pieces and flowers. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. The evening reception went off without a hitch and once more the food that evening was brilliant with plenty to go around. Everybody commented on how good the food was. The Bridal suite is so pretty and spacious and the breakfast the next day was far more than I expected. It even included a bottle of champagne and strawberries. From start to finish the Hotel were helpful and considerate to all our needs. I would highly recommend booking the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel for your special day.

We would recommend anyone thinking about choosing a wedding venue to view the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel first. The whole experience was second to none, we had absolutely nothing to worry about anything going wrong on the day, it went absolutely fantastic. The staff and management couldn't have done any more for us. They were so welcoming and still to this day our guests rave about the beautiful meal that was presented to them, and also the overall experience. Thank you so much to the Portlaoise Heritage hotel, only wish we could do it every year x
Lorraine Conlon and Kenneth Breen
We both had found our soul mate and the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel just topped it all off by giving us the best reception any bride and groom could only dream of. To this day guests from our wedding are still raving about the food they received, the reception room set up and the accommodation (of course the price was perfect for our entire guests!). But unfortunately into the early hours of the morning I took ill (I was not drinking because I wanted to make the most of my magical day), I took a turn for the worst. The hotel staff were so thoughtful and helpful to a bride in distress and came running to help. Turns out I had a stroke (from which I have made a full recovery), but it didn't ruin my day. When I look back I don't think of the day I had a stroke but I look at it and think it was the best day of my life xxxxxxxx

After our engagement in Oct 2011, we began looking around for a suitable venue for our ‘Special Day’, because of the wonderful personal attention we received from the management and staff and the excellent wedding packages available at The Portlaoise Heritage Hotel, we quickly made up our minds that this was the venue for us. On our wedding day many of our guests commented on the beautiful lay out of the Maryborough Suite. It looked stunning. The management and staff went out of their way to ensure that we had the wedding of our dreams. We would have no hesitation in recommending The Portlaoise Heritage Hotel as a wedding venue with class
Aisling Ging & Eddie Kirwan
Eddie and I have nothing but excellent reviews from our Wedding Day at the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel. The staff were brilliant and tended to our every need with little fuss and complete professionalism. We had approx 260 guests on the day so our main concern was the service and food quality.... we had nothing to worry about. Guests on the day had nothing but good things to say about both the service and the quality of the food. Staff were pleasant and helpful from the reception desk right through to residence bar at the end of the night. We would have no problem recommending The Portlaoise Heritage Hotel as a Wedding Venue

We had a magical wedding day at The Portlaoise Heritage Hotel on 15th June. From the moment we arrived at the hotel we were treated like royalty. Thank you all so much for such a fab & flawless day. Thanks so much to our wedding coordinator for all your assistance in the run up to and coming to meet us on our big day; you were so friendly, helpful, professional & efficient. Thanks to the managers for all on the day, from meeting us at the entrance and welcomed us with a glass of bubbly. The staff were attentive and attention to detail could be seen everywhere, from the service and assistance we got in the lead up to and on the day. Our guests absolutely loved the food & service that was outstanding. Our guests all commented that the food was one of the best meals they had ever tasted at a wedding before and even a year later we are still getting compliments about the food and service at our wedding The service, the food and the atmosphere, was more and beyond what we could have asked for, it was the stuff memories are made of. Our wedding day was amazing and we wouldn't have changed a thing. If we were to do it all again we wouldn’t have to think twice about what hotel to go to
Andrea Little and Stephen Conroy
We would recommend the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel as a wedding venue. The hotel itself is very central and easily located for our guests. The management and staff were very friendly to us from our first meeting with them at their Wedding Fair and we were very impressed that staff remembered us some time later when we decided to proceed with having our reception at the hotel.? We found all arrangements and dealing with the hotel very easy, the management were very accommodating throughout. They provided us with ideas which made ourdayallthemorespecial. ? On our wedding day itself the hotel were exceptionally accommodating to our needs, the food was gorgeous and service was excellent and there was not one word of complaint amongst our guests in this regard which I rate highly. ? Overall I can say when we had our wedding in the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel the Hotel, Management and Staff were excellent and we would like to thank them for making our Day go so smoothly and for being so easy to deal with.

We started out as every couple do, to pick our venue but we didn’t have to go far. We met with The Portlaoise Heritage Hotel Wedding Planner Carol and instantly we knew we were at the right place. We discussed in detail all packages available to us but most importantly she listened to what we wanted. This is one of the biggest and daunting decisions to make. Knowing that our guests are comfortable and happy with their meal and reception was imperative to us. After a few more meetings to finalise details such as seating plans with the Hotel our day arrived and everything was perfect. We were again greeted to a warm reception by super staff throughout the day. Prior to our banquet we visited the reception room and it was just a perfect romantic setting decorated beautifully with flowers and candles creating a lovely ambiance. Our meal was delicious and was circulated in an organised, calm manner. We were reassured every step of the way and we cannot praise our wedding coordinator Carol and team enough. Our day was a special day and we have fond memories that will stay with us forever thanks to The Portlaoise Heritage Hotel.

We booked our wedding exactly a year before the date and from start to finish the hotel and staff were amazing. From the sales staff, bar staff, kitchen staff, waiters, receptionist, managers and even to the General Manager everyone was so helpful from the day we booked until we left for our honeymoon. The food was so tasty and there was plenty of it, each of our 140 guests would agree. Everyone stayed for two nights and between us we used all the hotels facilities including the bars, restaurants, gym and swimming pool and everyone thought the facilities and services were top class. The overall value for money was great from our wedding package to our guest’s package. The staff on the day were great but more importantly from the first day we booked the team must of took or made about 500 phone calls to us. They were so helpful that they took calls after work times and stayed late to help us with any questions we had. They were right beside us every step of the way, which I think is important so nothing goes wrong. They were amazing. I would recommend anyone that is interested in booking a wedding or function to go and see their facilities and meet their team because that is what convinced us. Thanks again to everyone in the hotel.

Liam and I have just returned from our honeymoon and wanted to follow up with you to thank the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel team for making our wedding such a special day. We cannot praise the hotel enough. From our very first meeting with the hotel right up to our wedding day, the hotel was fantastic. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day. It went so smoothly we could not believe it. The whole day was faultless. Nothing was ever too much trouble and anytime we contacted the hotel we received a very prompt response by email or through a telephone call. The reception room looked amazing, the food was fantastic and the service was impeccable. Our wedding was all we hoped for and more, and we will definitely recommend the Portlaoise Heritage Hotel to friends and family in the future. Thank you once again for all your help. Holding our wedding at the hotel was definitely one of the best decisions we made. All our guests commented on the venue, great atmosphere, beautiful food and excellent service. We appreciate all the effort that all of the team put in to making our wedding weekend so special for us.
Mark Murnaghan and Sharon Hanniffy
We just wanted to let you know how happy Sharon and I were with the top class service we received leading up to our wedding & on the big day itself. From the moment we enquired about your wedding packages our wedding coordinator was very helpful, polite & accommodating. We can't speak highly enough about her & the work she put in for us in the weeks leading up to our wedding day to ensure we had a very memorable and perfect day. No request we made was too big. On our wedding day the staff and service was second to none - the staff were excellent, and Roy who was a gentleman, ensured the whole day went as smooth as it did. The table service at the meal was excellent, the food presentation was immaculate & everyone spoke very highly of the menu options & how tasty it was. The chef also deserves a lot of credit for the food he prepared.
