"Wedding - We held our wedding ceremony and afters in the Anner and there wasn't a single thing we could fault. From the minute we met Deirdre Crowe on the day of a Wedding Showcase until the time she left on the night of our wedding she couldn't do enough. She was so helpful, friendly and easy to deal with. All the guests were happy with the food and they were very accommodating to any dietary requirements. All the staff were so helpful and welcoming. It was an absolute pleasure to have our day here, we can't thank them enough."

She effortlessly managed every aspect of our wedding reception, creating a comprehensive timeline, ensuring that every detail was meticulously taken care of. Her knowledge, experience and unwavering dedication left us feeling completely at ease, knowing that our special day was in the best hands possible.

“From our first encounter to the last with Deirdre, our wedding coordinator we had all our fears allayed and all our wishes met. Deirdre and the staff of the Anner couldn't do enough for us, to make sure our special day went as extravagant and personal as we desired our nuptials to be.

Deirdre & staff were unbelievable. Everything was so professional and done to perfection. The Christmas decorations were beautiful & the food was delicious; from the huge spread in reception to the meal and the afters. You couldn't fault it. Our guests are still raving about it!
Nothing was a problem for Deirdre. She couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. She returned e-mails / calls very quickly and never had a problem meeting us. She put us at ease on the day & ensured everything ran smoothly.
I would highly recommend The Anner. The service, professionalism & friendliness was second to none.

We just recently had out wedding at the Anner hotel. I can on.y say good things about the Anner Hotel and all of their staff. Deirdre and Lily the wedding co-originators were great to return emails, I was never left for long for a response. They were so helpful with ideas and also any extras like sweets, wine, beer and photos stand etc they were more than accommodating. The food was fantastic and all the guests are still raving about the quality of the food and how quick the service was. We were treated so well from the day we just strolled in looking at venues to the day of the wedding. The meal tasting was also lovely and we were treated like royals. We can not recommend the Anner Hotel anymore, it is a fantastic venue with lovely reception area and gardens. Best Day ever!!

Everyone loved the hotel and food was exceptional even tasted better than at our menu tasting on which we received a complimentary overnight stay so we could enjoy the wine. Deirdre was amazing on the day and on the run up to our wedding she decorated the reception area beautifully with all my China, pictures and our little pieces of us. Everything ran perfectly on our day and I would love to do it all again. Deirdre and the girls were so helpful in trying to contact our photo booth that unfortunately didn't show up on the day but honestly it wasn't needed and we had a great time celebrating. We also had a bbq the next day which was also a big hit and once again the nicest food you could wish for!

Absolutely amazing from start to finish. "No" Wasn't a word in the Anner's dictionary. They were an absolute pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend them as a wedding venue to anyone else looking for a venue. The food was unreal and we had nothing but compliments about it after the wedding. We dealt with Deirdre in the lead up to the wedding and on the wedding itself, she is a credit to the hotel and helped us so much and made the experience great. We could not of asked for a better day thanks to the Anner hotel and all its staff

I cant recommend the Anner enough for a wedding. For us it was a one stops shop, ceremoney, photos and reception. The room for the ceremoney was beautifully decorated, it needed nothing else. The grounds are fab for photos, we got lovely night time photos done there, so no need to go anywhere else. All of the staff from the moment we arrived to the moment we left were unbelieveable, they helped make our day the best day ever. The food was fabolous, melt in your mouth, our guests are still raving about how nice it was.

From start to finish, our wedding was amazing. We arrived the Friday before the wedding, and checked out the Monday after. Throughout our whole stay we were spoilt by all the staff in the hotel. No request was too big or too small. What also really impressed us was the quality of the food. The meal was just as incredible on the night of the wedding as it was at our tasting menu. Our guests are still calling to say how great the meal was and how friendly the staff were. We will always be grateful for the Anner and the staff for helping to make our dream day run smoothly. Thanks to the staff we had nothing to worry about, so really got to enjoy this once in a lifetime event and appreciate it. And that to us is priceless. We would highly recommend the Anner as the best place to hold a reception.

I cannot recommend the Anner Hotel as a wedding venue highly enough. From the very first visit we paid to the hotel to the wedding day they could not have been more helpful. Their style is relaxed yet super efficient so we always knew everything was in hand and we had nothing to worry about. Their wedding packages are excellent with something for all tastes and budgets. Even attending for the tasting menu before the wedding my fiance and I were made feel so welcome and special. The wedding meal was delicious and still commented on by our guests about how nice it was.The best thing about the Anner is the care and attention they give, there is a real family feel to the business and you are not just 'another customer'. We have very special memories of our wedding at the Anner and would highly recommend to anyone.

Where to begin. We came to the Anner Hotel for the first time 14 days before our wedding having been left high and dry by the venue we originally booked. Having endured 2 of the worst days in the history of planning a wedding our spirits were instantly lifted, initially just by the hotels appearance and then by the calming competence of the wedding planner Courtney Hyland. The 2 weeks that followed were a further testament of her abilities, finding us a celebrant at 8 days notice when the HSE cancelled on us and organising our mouth watering meal tasting all within the shortest time frame ever! No ask was too much for this lady and every call and email was answered so promptly. We spent 3 wonderful nights at the hotel over the course of our wedding and I am only looking for a reason to book in again. Our guests are still raving about the food, especially the lamb shank the chef served up as one of our mains. The service was so smooth and the staff were so attentive, special mention to Dan who served us at the top table. The decor was fantastic, nobody batted an eye when I turned up with boxes of props, in fact they took it all on and left me stress free throughout. The tables were just stunning. On the day itself it rained and we took our photos in the bridal suite which is exquisite and huge, it was a perfect scene, I'm so excited to see them. The second night we had a number of guests stay on and the staff were just as attentive and accommodating of the whole group, the food they put on for us while simpler than the wedding menu was just as delicious and well presented. In terms of professionalism, flexibility and value for money I'm only sorry we didn't find this gem originally, they took on our 180 person wedding at 2 weeks notice and made it a 5 star experience for us and all our guests. I would recommend them to any couple looking for the perfect venue.

We hosted our wedding in the Anner Hotel in January 2015 - we were thrilled with the level of professionalism and care that we received from all members of staff from the waiting staff to the managers. The quality of food was second to none and we had a few dietary requirements to take care of also, this was seamless and we had no issues at all, I would like to thank in particular Paul for his hard work and level headedness in the lead up to our wedding, he was a breath of fresh air to the wedding plans with his hints and tips. Thanks so much to all, Michael & Regina X

We had our wedding reception in The Anner Hotel on New Years Eve and had a fantastic time. The management and staff of the Hotel were just super from our very first inquiry right through to the day after our wedding. David and Joan in particular. Nothing was too much for the hotel and they went above and beyond in every aspect. They made the organising of our wedding so so easy. The food was fantastic and our guests were commenting on how good the menu was. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The hotel itself was very nicely decorated and looks great. We would highly recommend The Anner Hotel for a wedding or any event. 5 Stars. Padraig & Denise

We held our wedding reception at the Anner shortly before Xmas. The day could not have gone better: the venue looked fantastic, the food and drink was terrific, and the staff could not have been more helpful. The feedback from our guests was also extremely positive. The hotel was a pleasure to deal with throughout the process. We would highly recommend the hotel to any couple looking for a wedding venue.
