Quality of service

We were completely blown away by the service we received by the management and staff at The Great Northern hotel. From the very first contact with Karen, she made us feel very welcome and at ease that our wedding would be the best day of our lives. We organized everything from Australia and Karen took all the pressure off us. We had an amazing weekend and our family and friends continue to praise the hotel on the food and service received. It honestly was the wedding of our dreams and couldn't have asked for anything more.

We went with the Great Northern Hotel as we knew the food was always divine there, and location just beside the sea. When we decided to have our wedding there, the back drop of the ocean looking out the huge windows was an added bonus for all our guests on a long summers evening.
Karen and Ciara were absolutely brilliant, Karen was there to answer any questions all the way through, and gave excellent suggestions to us which saved us a bit of money, which was appreciated!
Everything was 100% including food, service and venue. So many of our guests commented on how there was no delay in the food arriving to tables, it ran like clockwork. In comparison to weddings we have attended, where you could be waiting ages between courses there was none of that messing with the chef in Great Northern! Food was beautiful.
Karen was so helpful in planning, as we had two small children and wedding planning was becoming overwhelming at times and she was there to answer any queries we had, and always lovely to chat to!
Couldnt recommend the hotel, food, staff and location any more. It was also very reasonably priced for all that we got, in comparison to other venues. We go back any chance we get for any family occasion. Thanks Karen, Ciara and team!
