We had our wedding in the Midlands Park Hotel. We can not thank Joanne, Anna and all the Staff enough for the 5 star service we received. They went over and beyond for us. Nothing we asked was a problem and they were so good too our children and helped in anyway they could. Our wedding was during lockdown at Christmas and the hotel still provided us with our special day which we cant thanks them enough for. The bar staff were great , service was excellent. The staff who came in the next morning too do breakfast were so good anything we wanted wasnt a problem thanks too Rhiain and colleague's . We would highly recommend the Midlands Park for your special day.

I cant even begin to express how amazing the midlands park hotel were in making our wedding day just absolutely perfect! Our wedding was slap bang in the middle of covid and all these restrictions and yet the day felt just as we imagined it would! The staff couldn't do enough for you, a big part of what makes the midlands park hotel so special! The food... was to die for! I never even heard of feather-blade steak and now I am telling everyone that they need to try it!! The decorations were fab, all the Christmas decorations were up and it just made it so beautiful. I couldn't fault them, i couldn't fault anything. Thank you to the midlands park hotel for making our wedding day a day to remember forever! Mrs and Mr Connor

We had our wedding at the Midlands Park Hotel in October 2020 and we couldn’t have been happier with the overall experience. The staff were fantastic, all so helpful and accommodating, they couldn’t do more for us on the day and the lead up to our big day. A special mention and thanks to Joanne our wedding coordinator and Anna who made sure our day was perfect and went smoothly. Our guests were also blown away by the standard of food on the day and attention to detail.

We would just like to say that our wedding was in the middle of a Lock down and the government would only allow 50 guests to attend the wedding. The hotel staff from start to finish made it feel like we had 200 guest's at the wedding. We had the best day ever and we couldnt recommend midlands park hotel enough and everything that they done for us.

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?!

From the very first meeting through to the wedding day itself the hotel staff were absolutely amazing. We were treated like royalty and our entire family were looked after exceptionally. It was very stressful having to reorganise things 48 hours before the wedding due to the Coronavirus but the hotel staff made it as easy as possible. We couldn't recommend the Midlands Park Hotel highly enough. It was fabulous xx

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 Patricia and Colm, Thank you so much for your kind words above, it means a lot to both myself personally and the Team here in the Midlands Park Hotel.

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.
Response from Midlands Park Hotel
Dear Catherine and Damien, Firstly, Thank you both so much for allowing us to use your kind words! Your light-hearted approach to your big day was such a pleasure to be a part of. If we can ever do anything for you or your loved ones again, I would be more than happy to help. Our Kitchen team love receiving feedback and Chef thoroughly enjoyed reading yours! I would also like to thank you both on behalf of the Team here for the huge box of Popcorn, I can confirm it was VERY well received! Thank you both again for allowing us to be a part of your day!

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! All our love Shannen & Darren O'Reilly ?

The midlands park hotel is the place to get married or have your reception in if you want 5 star quality. From the moment we visited the wedding fair in the hotel up until the morning of the wedding we recieved top class service. Briona the wedding co-ordinatir in the hotel could not do enough for us, she went beyond what you would expect of any wedding co-ordinator. The food was amazing, all of our guests could not believe the service and the quality of food. I highly recommend the team at the hotel .

No problem was too much for the hotel to sort out quickly and to our satisfaction. A great team a great venue and a beautiful working relationship to pull off our wedding on one of the hottest days of the summer last year. 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. The Banqueting manager George is an absolute conductor and his seamless guidance on the days up to our wedding and on the day it’s self was pure poetry.

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.

We had our wedding (Ceremony and Reception) in the Midlands Park Hotel in July 2017. The help and guidance the wedding co-coordinator, Yvonne, gave us in the months before the wedding was invaluable. 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.

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 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

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

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.

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

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.

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
