We recently had our wedding in the stunning Ardilaun Hotel in Galway. The weather worked in our favour and we were able to make use of the stunning garden area for our drinks reception and our day 2 bbq. All of our guests commented on the friendliness of all the staff in the hotel nothing was an issue and they made everybody's stay a positive experience. The other thing the guests commented on was the amazing food provided throughout the 2 days. Everything was to an exceptional standard and I would highly recommend The Ardilaun as a wedding venue. They made everything so easy all we had to do was turn up and they took care of everything for us. 5 star service from start to finish.

Both John and I couldn?t recommend The Ardilaun House Hotel highly enough. We got married there in the 27th of August. From our first contact with Zara to the big day nothing was ever a problem. We had a large family room which was great as we have two children so they had an interconnected room to our which was super!! Our ceremony was also held in the hotel in a beautiful room and after we moved to the main function room for our wedding meal and celebrations. The wedding food was absolutely amazing and the service and staff was the best we ever have seen. All our guest complimented us on what an amazing wedding day and party we had. If I could give 10 stars I would as The Ardilaun House Hotel covered everything with ease. Can I also say the breakfast and bar food is also top notch. All our guests said they will be returning again to stay and we can?t wait to go back for our first wedding anniversary stay!!

Kindest Regards
John and Amy

To all the staff in the Ardilaun Hotel Galway, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for the immense hospitatlity we recived on our wedding day. The display of food while guests were welcomed into the reception was beautiful. Our meal was exactly what I asked for, fresh, hot and tasty. Our guests are still talking about it. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Zara the wedding planner who was always at the end of the phone or an email. You were so professional and supportive while we planned our wedding day. Thank you so much again and we will without a doubt be highly recommending the Ardilaun Hotel to future bride and grooms.

We got married in the Ardilaun Hotel in January 2024, and it was the most enjoyable experience from start to finish. Zara, Conor and all the team were a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was a problem. Paul, the chef provided the most excellent buffet. Truly the food and the service was absolutely top notch. The gardens provided a gorgeous backdrop for the photos. We got special rates for bed and breakfast for our guests and breakfast was excellent also. We really couldn’t praise the Ardilaun Hotel enough as a wedding venue. Keep up the great work

There are so many decisions to be made when organising a wedding, but I can honestly say the best decision of all we made, was to choose the Ardilaun Hotel to host our wedding. From our very 1st meeting with Maria, and from the welcome we received we knew it was the venue for us. A beautiful family run hotel, every member of staff seems to have a smile on their face and this gets passed on for the best guest experience.

Our wedding coordinator Zara is amazing and passionate at what she does. Any advice we needed, questions we had, changes we made, were never a problem. Thank you Zara for always making us feel so important and making everything so easy for us.

The day itself was amazing. We had a December wedding so the hotel is transformed into a winter wonderland with stunning decorations and Christmas lights. Our guests were greeted for the drinks reception with a great selection of drinks and canapes, and the delicious food and service at our sit down meal was just incredible with plenty to go around and generous wine top ups. The hotel really didn't spare on anything.

We got so many compliments from our guests about the amazing hospitality they received and it made us very proud for choosing the Ardilaun Hotel. Thanks so much to John and Maggie and all their fantastic staff for welcoming us and giving us the best weekend ever. We were only meant to have stayed for 1 extra night after our wedding, but we stayed on for 3 in the stunning bridal suite. We just didn't want to leave! We honestly cannot recommend the Ardilaun Hotel enough.

In all our interactions with the Ardilaun Hotel in the run up to our wedding, it felt like ours was their only wedding being catered for. We never felt like just another client. They respected how invested and excited we were and they made us feel very special. Nothing was too much trouble, irrespective of which staff member we were speaking with.

The Ardilaun is a beautiful hotel, and is very well equipped for weddings. It's clear that the staff are very experienced in ensuring that your day runs seamlessly, and all of the staff we dealt with were genuinely kind people and dealt with any special requests swiftly and efficiently. We couldn't have asked for a better team on our special day. The location of the hotel is really convenient - walking distance to the center (25 minutes), so you have all the benefits of a spacious hotel with beautiful gardens, quiet surroundings and plentiful parking, without having to sacrifice access to key areas of Galway. It's also convenient for any guests visiting Salthill, Barna, or driving further West to explore Connemara. We had an amazing wedding at The Ardilaun and would gladly recommend it to others. If I were to single out one area where they stand ahead of other venues, it's the staff for sure. A truly brilliant team!

There is nothing to fault as such, we chose the room looking out onto the garden for our ceremony and with just over 50 guests it was a bit of a squeeze especially for the photographer. Ideal for about 35 guests but any more if possible opt for another room or garden for ceremony.
Also, myself and bridesmaids stayed in the Ardilaun the night before, the room was just fabulous, so spacious, it was stress free, the staff were on hand helping so much with whatever we needed.. Drinks, flowers brought up from cold room, chairs for us for make up and hair they just couldn't do enough for us. The food was absolutely fab. And the staff were just super from dinner to end. Just another thing is maybe request to do the cake cutting, now luckily we had the fake cake cutting done while photographer was there but later on the night the cake was cut and left on the side just in case some would prefer to actually do the first cake cut. We weren't bothered as such it's just something some of the guests mentioned. All in all it was just perfect from start to end and Zara was just such a lovely person to deal with from planning right up to the last emails and meet up. She accomodated us in whatever way she could.

Had the best night at our wedding in The Ardilaun. Zara was very helpful in the lead up. Roisin was so lovely at our menu tasting and it was great to see her familiar face serving us on the day also. The room was decorated beautifully. The room was spacious even though we had 200 guests. The guests all complimented the beef and chicken. The managers and all the waiting staff were very efficient. I requested YouTube links to be played for the entrance etc and no task was too much. We had never been to a wedding here before our own but we definitely made the right choice.

Absolutely delighted we chose to celebrate our wedding in The Ardilaun Hotel in December 2022. We both love Christmas and so choosing a hotel that decorates beautifully for Christmas was important and The Ardilaun do just that. The hotel is fabulous and so homely. From first meeting Zara and being shown around the hotel, we knew we had to get married here. Zara was so accommodating and nothing was an issue, we had our drinks reception in the Glenarde suite instead of the lobby and this was catered for no problem despite it not being a usual request.
The day ran so smoothly with Jason playing a blinder on the day. He went over and beyond and the service was next to none from the time we arrived in Galway to the time we left. We are so grateful. All our guests were ranting and raving about the hotel & staff. The hotel & staff couldnt do enough for us, including moving bags to the Bridal suite the morning of after getting ready and providing me with nosecco upon arrival as I was pregnant. The attention to detail was out of this world. The food was excellent and the cheesecake for dessert was to die for. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the best wedding weekend. We had the best wedding day and NYE party for Day 2. We highly recommend The Ardilaun, they are fantastic at what they do.

An absolutely lovely place to have a wedding! Thank you so much for being so accommodating and helping us along with the whole process. There was a giant hole on my dress by the end of the day - the sign of an unforgettable evening I'm sure! We got a lot of compliments on the food in particular so please pass that on to the chefs and their team. With my husband working in the industry for so long he said that your service was exceptional.

Everyone that stayed at the hotel had nothing but good to say about the accommodations as well. :) My mum hadn't travelled since she was pregnant with my brother (who is now 25 lol) so this was a really nice reintroduction to hotel stays for her.

We had our wedding ceremony there on the 28th of October and there is not one thing we could fault. From start to finish it was just amazing. The food,venue and the bedrooms were all spectacular. A big thank you to Zara for all her help in organising the day there was no job to big for her. All the staff were so friendly and helpful as well.

The Ardilaun Hotel has a longstanding reputation of being a really fantastic wedding venue so was an easy choice for us to make. I'm sure we probably drove the staff mad on occasions with all of the emails/queries that I made, but they always responded quickly which was excellent.

The bridal Suite was exceptional, and as I stayed there the night before the ceremony gave me loads of space to get things ready for the next day and had plenty of room for 5 of us to get ready.

The ceremony space was done to perfection, and as we arranged most of our own decor for the reception room it turned out exceptional! All of our guests were impressed that you can bring your own personal touches to the venue if required.

The only downside to the entire experience was that an error was made on one of our chosen main courses, which resulted in some of our guests saying they were disappointed with the dish given in its place. This didn't come to light until everyone had sat down to eat so I would definitely recommend that the team check in with the bridal party a day or two in advance to confirm the menu is correct.

Aside from this I cannot fault anything, the service and quantity of food provided during the service was immense, and all in all it was an exceptionally fun and memorable day and would recommend the hotel to any potential wedding couples!

The Ardilaun Hotel was a dream wedding venue. Nothing was ever an issue when we asked and on the day there were so many staff on hand to make sure the day ran as it was meant to. We chose this venue because we fell in love with the gardens and wanted to be married there, in typical Irish form the weather was not on our side the morning of but none the less the hotel, with the help of vendors made the venue inside look just how we wanted it. Zara and her team are the loveliest people to work with and we wish we could do it all over again!

We had the best time at our wedding and the day after barbeque. We were very impressed with the food quality, service and professionalism of all of the staff. Every staff member worked very hard and could not have been more accommodating. We are so happy with our decision to have booked the Ardilaun. All of our guests were very impressed and enjoyed their stay at the property. We had several guests from the States stay for 7 days and loved their stay. Zara was great to work with especially since most of the planning was done via email from the States. She helped us immensely! We would not change a thing and are so happy! Thank you to everyone at the Ardilaun that helped make our wedding even more memorable!

The wedding package the lady Ardilaun was just perfect from beginning to end. Everything was seamless no hiccups. The ceremony was performed in a beautiful room with just the right atmosphere. The layout and flowers were fabulous. Then after a chance to mingle with family and friends over canap?s and Prosecco. Followed by an outstanding meal in the corribe suite. The staff were attentive, kind and courteous. I was just brilliant and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

We got married in the Ardilaun Hotel on Saturday, 16th April 2022. We had the best day ever and are very grateful and thankful to all the staff of the Ardilaun who were professional and friendly from our initial appointment. Zara Kelly, the Weddings & Events Co-Ordinator, was the very best from day one. She was always on hand to meet us, take a call and give us advise as needed. Thank you so much Zara!

On the day itself we cannot thank the staff enough who went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was special under the supervision of Conor. The ceremony room and the reception room were exquisite. The dinner, and the evening reception food, was delicious and all our guests are still taking about it. There was plenty of staff available which made the flow of the day go smoothly.

Once again thank you all at the Ardilaun. We highly recommend anyone who is looking to get married in a venue in Galway to check out the Ardilaun Hotel. You won?t be disappointed.

Overall the Ardilaun hotel provided a great day for our wedding. In particular our wedding planner Zara was very helpful and was always at hand for any questions and replied very promptly. The food was excellent and all our guests thought so too! On reflection the only thing that bothered us on the day was that the dinner service was very slow. We were quite late finishing the meal which meant the band were very late starting and the rest of the evening was delayed as a result. This was possibly due to lack of or inexperienced staff due to covid but knowing the size of the wedding the hotel should have made allowances for that. On another small note, the complimentary breakfast in bed the following morning never arrived, when we rang to reception to enquire about it at 10.30, we were told that breakfast was finished. When we explained that we were in the bridal suite the receptionist organised breakfast to be sent up straight away and it was lovely. It just would have been better maybe if that had been communicated better to us in terms of times etc. And perhaps organised ahead of time as we just assumed that would have been done.

We were so delighted we went with the Ardilaun for our wedding - hotel / grounds / food / staff / everything was gorgeous. We were so happy with the food, it was so yummy and everyone commented on how nice it was. The hotel staff, especially Zara, were so helpful with any questions we had - especially surrounding Covid and the ever changing restrictions - really felt like day would be great no matter what restrictions were and the hotel were so flexible / took all that stress away. We had a civil ceremony in the hotel and were delighted with it all.

John, Maria, Catherine, Conor, Eleanor, Mike, Jason, Paddy, the amazing chefs and all the fabulous staff of the Ardilaun Hotel. I?m about to hop on a plane but I wanted to drop you a line to thank you so so much for delivering the wedding of our dreams this weekend, you went above and beyond and you exceeded all of our expectations. We are on such a high and that is in large down to the experience you gave us and our guests over the last four days. We have memories we will cherish forever and none of it would have been possible without you guys, the service was exceptional and attention to detail was exacting, I couldn?t believe it when my steak was presented exactly as I like it, Medium. The fact you guys remember that when I just mentioned it flippantly weeks ago really surprised me and certainly impressed me. Not surprisingly, everyone is raving about the food, you wouldn?t believe the amount of times it has been mentioned since. It was one of the best beef fillets we?ve ever eaten, cooked to perfection and our guests are likely to never forget it as it made such an impact, it was noted so much in our guest book, the chefs really nailed it.

Conor and Maria, thank you for the incredible welcome and for making us feel at home, it was so lovely to have a fellow islander oversee the proceedings and you were fantastic from start to finish, both JP and I are so grateful. Maria, thank you for making it all happen in the lead up, for the advice and for answering the many questions/queries over the last number of months. Thank you also for checking in with us on Thursday evening and for being so thorough to check everything one last time.

Michael and Jason, thank you so much for making the morning of our wedding so relaxing and memorable, the Garden room worked so well and the delivery of our breakfast items was so efficient and again when we ordered our breakfast to the room yesterday. Jason, it was so lovely to have you there throughout the weekend and to see you at one of our drinks stations on Friday, we?ve done a lot of weddings together and it was so special to have you and Mike there for our wedding.

A massive thank you to the lovely night porter who made the girls coffees on arrival and ran around for them on the morning, I?m so sorry I can?t remember your name but know your help and assistance was very much appreciated and we are so thankful to you. Michael a big thank you for getting the Honeynoon suite ready so we could move my bags and get ready, it was done with no fuss and so willingly which was very much appreciated.

Eleanor, you are a lady and made for the hospitality industry, you?re efficient, calm and it?s so evident you know what you?re doing. We were delighted to have you there on the evening and again yesterday, you were brilliant and your regular check ins with us was so lovely and showed just how much you cared.

Catherine, thank you for all of your help with our room reservations in the lead up to our wedding, and for the regular updates. Everybody was so happy with their accommodation. I know there was a lot of chopping and changing and you handled it like the professional you are.

Paddy, thank you for helping us with our many items on Thursday evening, my sisters really appreciated it, you were so pleasant to deal with and nothing was too much trouble.

Sadhbh and Rachel and the girls on reception, thank you for being so lovely to us and our guests, for the warm welcome and for making our checkout so easy!!!

William, you made the best cappuccinos in Salthill and nothing has changed, it was awesome, thank you!!

Our covid wedding day was absolutely perfect, and that was down Maria and all the staff at the Ardilaun. From start to finish it was amazing. The food, the service, the kind staff, and also Vameer, the night porter, who had to sort out the night owls. We were up until 5 both mornings and he was just amazing. He had a smile on his face throughout and was extremely obliging. Nothing was a problem. The food was top class and second to none. The Ardilaun went above and beyond to make our wedding so memorable and special during such difficult times, due to covid, and we are very well aware that not all hotels were as considerate.

We will continue to recommend The Ardilaun to everyone and for any future family celebrations, we will most certainly be back.

We recently had our wedding reception at the Ardilaun Hotel and from Day 1 when we first met Maureen we knew instantly that the Ardilaun was exactly where we wanted our wedding reception to be and her attention to detail and honesty was so helpful in all the preparations. She really made everything flow so smoothly in every aspect of the planning and was always available for a chat or a quick meeting when we wanted to discuss any detail and this was greatly appreciated. We received so many great compliments from all our guests about the standard of food, with many saying it was the best meal they had ever eaten! And we couldn't agree more, the food was outstanding. We cannot commend the hotel staff enough, as the level of service was second to none and the kindness and helpfulness shown at different stages of the weekend to ourselves and our guests was brilliant.

Maureen and all the staff really made our day so special and we honestly cannot express enough how fantastic they were throughout. We can only imagine all the hard work that went on behind the scenes to make the day run so flawlessly, but it really was such a fantastic day for us, we loved every single minute of it - our only complaint was that it flew by too quickly

To Maureen and all the team at the Ardilaun, we cannot say thank you enough for taking care of us all of our wedding weekend. From the moment we met Maureen we had a fantastic experience planning our big day. Every phone call, every email was never a problem throughout the preparations.

From the moment we got to the hotel the staff were all so polite, helpful, kind and just so friendly. No task was too big or too small and everyone was just so lovely throughout the whole weekend. The rooms were lovely and spacious and the girls got ready in the bridal suite and had a fabulous morning.

We had our ceremony, reception and a BBQ on the second day in the hotel and mother nature didn?t cooperate for any of it to be held outdoors. There were 200+ guests for the wedding and about 70-80 on the second day. Over the entire weekend the food was delicious, service outstanding, the room decor was amazing and we simply had the best weekend ever. A special shout out to the night porter for taking care of us into the early hours.

We can?t put into words how grateful we are and wonderful our time there was and we would highly recommend Maureen and all the staff who work in this beautiful hotel to any couple getting married.
Thank you for such an amazing time x x

It?s been about ten years since I lived in Ireland, but when I got engaged a few months after the equal marriage referendum in Ireland, my fiance and I knew we wanted to come home to get married.

We spent a week in Galway visiting venues but couldn?t find anything quite right. After a tip from a friend, we showed up to the Ardilaun on a whim, and asked to speak to the wedding planner, Maureen. As we sat down to talk, the first she did was quietly cross out ?Bride? at the top of her form, and write in ?Groom.?

That might seem like a small thing, but every other venue had given us a long sales pitch that was aimed at brides and grooms (which included a lot of perks for the bride, like discounts for dressmakers or make-up, or hen party packages). It wasn?t offensive, but it did start to feel silly that they weren?t bothering to tailor their spiel, given that there were two men standing in front of them.

When Maureen changed the form, she didn?t make a show of doing it, and probably didn?t realize we had noticed. But it gave us a sense that she was listening to our needs, and that she and the hotel had an attention to detail that would be present right through to the wedding day.

We weren?t disappointed. Maureen and her team worked so hard to make sure we had everything we needed, and were on hand during the months of preparation to answer our questions and offer advice on how best to put the day together. Our ceremony was a mix of Irish and Persian traditions -- including an elaborate Persian altar -- which the hotel went to great lengths to accommodate.

It?s been about ten years since I lived in Ireland, but when I got engaged a few months after the equal marriage referendum in Ireland, my fiance and I knew we wanted to come home to get married.

We spent a week in Galway visiting venues but couldn?t find anything quite right. After a tip from a friend, we showed up to the Ardilaun on a whim, and asked to speak to the wedding planner, Maureen. As we sat down to talk, the first she did was quietly cross out ?Bride? at the top of her form, and write in ?Groom.?

That might seem like a small thing, but every other venue had given us a long sales pitch that was aimed at brides and grooms (which included a lot of perks for the bride, like discounts for dressmakers or make-up, or hen party packages). It wasn?t offensive, but it did start to feel silly that they weren?t bothering to tailor their spiel, given that there were two men standing in front of them.

When Maureen changed the form, she didn?t make a show of doing it, and probably didn?t realize we had noticed. But it gave us a sense that she was listening to our needs, and that she and the hotel had an attention to detail that would be present right through to the wedding day.

We weren?t disappointed. Maureen and her team worked so hard to make sure we had everything we needed, and were on hand during the months of preparation to answer our questions and offer advice on how best to put the day together. Our ceremony was a mix of Irish and Persian traditions -- including an elaborate Persian altar -- which the hotel went to great lengths to accommodate. The meal enjoyed by our guests was excellent, as was the service throughout the evening.

We had a perfect day, and could not have asked for anything more.

Hopefully they do not happen again so that's good news for future couples.

Dear Paula,
We would just like to take this opportunity to respond to your recent post. Having acknowledged with you following your wedding day that some issues hadn’t met your expectations we felt that we had remedied this situation. However we were delighted we received numerous positive feedback from many of your guests regarding the food, service and the hotel. I hope Mr. Ryan’s letter to your father was received well. Best regards, Maureen and the wedding team

Maureen and her team were faultless, they could not do enough for us and every detail was perfectly executed. The food was outstanding, many comments from guests were that it was not your standard ?wedding? food, but more that of a high end restaurant. The location and venue is intimate and relaxed and we really felt we were more at home, than lost in a boring reception centre

My husband and I got married at The Ardilaun on Friday 30th November 2018 and all we can say is WOW!! We had the most fantastic wedding. Maureen Walsh, the dedicated Wedding Planner at The Ardilaun was just the best ever. Maureen was super professional helpful, kind, made great suggestions that all worked out, replied to my 60000 emails with every question under the sun that we had. We could have not done it without her. All of the staff at the Ardilaun were so friendly and kind and were genuinely so caring and every single one of them wished us well on our big day ?
The function room for our civil ceremony was decorated beautifully with fabulous flower arrangements and because it was almost Christmas the hotel had its fabulous decorations up and even had a brand new carpet in the foyer the week before the wedding.
The food was absolutely delicious, I?m normally not a huge fan of Wedding food but the meal that we had at The Ardilaun was unreal. The soup was piping hot, starter was so tasty and they carved the roast beef table side so it was piping hot. Every guest complemented us on the food and service. The evening food was also delicious! Maureen ensured that we had the honeymoon suite for our two nights stay at The Ardilaun and gave us champagne and truffles and a fruit plate. Our families and friends were so impressed with their rooms, quality of service and the whole event. We are delighted that we choose The Ardilaun for our Wedding, it really was the best day of our lives and we would sincerely like to thank everybody there for making it such. We would highly recommend to anybody thinking about having their wedding in Galway to meet with Maureen at The Ardilaun and we promise you won?t be disappointed. Enjoy

We had our wedding reception here in September last year and we were delighted with our choice of venue for the ceremony and reception.

The wedding coordinator Maureen was brilliant to deal with from day one, and we knew we were in good hands. The entire day ran smoothly, with Maureen and the rest of the great staff working hard to ensure our guests had a memorable experience.

We had our Civil Ceremony in one of the smaller suites, and it was beautifully decorated for the occasion. Following the ceremony, the drinks reception was held in the foyer with the in-house Guinness Jazz Trio band performing. The foyer of the hotel is large with many comfortable seats, and we also gathered there throughout the weekend to enjoy coffee and chats. Our family and friends commented on how comfortable the hotel is, as it still retains the charm and feel of a country house.

Our dinner reception was in the large Connaught Suite, and it was beautifully decorated on the day. The food was absolutely superb, and we have received lots of compliments from our guests since then about the quality and service.

We had our wedding reception in the Ardilaun Hotel in Galway on 24 March 2017 and can't recommend it highly enough. The food, service and attention to detail are all outstanding. Our main objective was to have a relaxed atmosphere throughout the day and having Maureen Walsh as the hotel wedding planner was key to that. From the moment we booked the Ardilaun, the planning became very simple as Maureen is a complete expert. The reception itself on the day was more perfect than we could have hoped. The weather was sunny so the drinks reception was held outside where a very festive atmosphere was created. The Guinness Jazz Trio play at the drinks receptions for Ardilaun weddings and they really added to the occasion. We had a relatively small wedding so were slightly concerned that the crowd might look a bit dwarfed in the large function room. However, Maureen and her team laid out the room so that it was the perfect size for our wedding. The dinner was really superb - all of our guests mentioned how good the meal was and there were very generous helpings. The wine was also excellent. The Ardilaun seems to adopt a whole of hotel approach to weddings as all of the staff, from reception to those at breakfast, were so attentive and obliging. The quality of service was also something many of our guests mentioned. We are just delighted we made the choice to book the Ardilaun for our wedding!

Maureen and her team were excellent on the day we couldn't fault the food the service or the attentiveness of the staff to our guests. We had one issue in the whole process in that we were not informed that rooms were selling out and that no more would be available to our guests despite requesting the hotel to let us know we resolved the issue eventually but it was an issue. Everything else from the planning tasting etc was in my opinion faultless we were very happy with the hotel and food and service we received. the room is beautiful and very comfortable and was beautifully decorated for the Christmas season.

From the very first time meeting Maureen I knew our wedding would be a fantastic day. She was so helpful and always available to give advice not only on the reception, but for everything to do with the wedding. The day before we dropped up some extra pieces we had bought for decorations, sweets, chalkboards, bunting etc, Maureen took the box off us and told us not to worry that she would sort it all. The next day when I saw the reception and wedding room I was blown away. It looked amazing. On the day the food and wine was fantastic and people are still commenting about it to me. We were lucky with the weather and could have people outside in the gardens and that was also decorated beautifully. The Ardilaun was always my first choice to get married in, and I would not change anything about the day.

I just can't thank The Ardilaun Hotel enough for providing what was an absolutely amazing weekend for our wedding in August last year. I am absolutely delighted that we chose this hotel for our big day. From the moment that we booked the wedding, Maureen and the staff at the hotel couldn't do enough to accommodate us. The planning, advice and reassurance from Maureen during the lead up to the wedding was really appreciated and helped to make sure the day was so special for us. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming - providing an efficient and professional service at all times. The food was excellent - from the canap?s to the meal to the evening food. On the day of the wedding, Maureen just made sure everything was perfect all of the time. And it was; everything was timed so well and went off without a hitch. We would happily recommend The Ardilaun to any couple looking for the perfect wedding venue, as would all of our guests who still compliment us on how fabulous the whole day was.

We had our wedding at The Ardilaun Hotel on the 9th April this year and we couldn't recommend the hotel more. We had an amazing day and weekend. The whole organisation of our big day was made so easy by the wedding planner Maureen Walsh. The reception itself was perfect from start to finish, everything ran so smoothly. The dinner provided on the day was to the high standard we received when we completed our menu tasting. There were no delays, the dinner was hot, delicious, and so many of our guests commented on how they were offered seconds and even thirds on some occasions. The package we chose allowed for a free pour of wine and that is exactly what we got, at no stage throughout the meal were glasses empty. We would really recommend staying an extra night and making full use of the hotel. We hired a two man band to play in the bar the next night and the hotel could not of been more hospitable. Every staff member bent over backwards for us and we were made to feel so welcome from beginning to end.

Choosing a venue was high on my list as both myself and my husband are involved in the catering business and so were a lot of my guests. Standard of food was very important to both of us. Once we met with Maureen we knew we were in good hands. We had some ideas we wanted to do on the day and nothing seemed to faze Maureen and was on board with us and also gave us her thoughts of what works and what doesn't. We had the most wonderful day and can't thank the ardilaun for creating the perfect day for us.

In conclusion, we would without hesitation recommend the Ardilaun Hotel anyone considering their big day.
