"Fabulous wedding" We had our wedding reception, dinner and party at Glenlo Abbey on 24 May 2019. From our first meeting with Natalie we knew that’s the place as were shown perfect professionalism, attention to details and personal approach in a very discrete and polite manner. Everything was perfectly organised and went very smoothly at the wedding taking place in three different suites/halls of the Abbey. From the very beginning till the end our guests and ourselves were made feel special. Everything was precisely considered and performed leaving our guests with memories of being part of something exceptional. Food was amazing and all the guests are massively impressed and happy, we’re still receiving compliments. The reason for that is, in our opinion, not only the expertise the team has, but the personal approach they have to people. Personally we enjoyed most the relaxed and easy atmosphere, which is the most difficult part and it’s all the team. Behind our smooth running party is their perfectly running team work. We had never expected that a busy day like this can be turned into what it’s meant to be - our happiest one but at Glenlo Abbey they made the day of our wedding our happiest day. We’ll definitely celebrate more special occasions there or will just return for the atmosphere and experience.

"Luxurious Treat" We went to Glenlo to celebrate our First Wedding Anniversary and from the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and special. We were treated to a room with the best view in the hotel, we got a complimentary drink in the bar to celebrate and even though we only spent one night we felt like we'd been away for a week. The staff are excellent, while they are very professional in their various roles they are friendly, helpful and very welcoming. The food in the Oak Cellar, The Pullman and the Afternoon tea are all to a very high standard and the facilities as excellent. Glenlo is the perfect choice for anyone who wants a real treat! We'll be back

"Perfect wedding!" My husband and I were married at Glenlo Abbey Hotel and cannot be more impressed with the hotel & staff! They made sure everything was perfect from check-in to check-out. We are American so it was a little dubious planning everything from so far away but the wedding manager, Valerie, was very responsive and always put my mind at ease when I had 10000+ questions I needed answered. As an event planner myself it was difficult not to personally check in on every detail on our wedding day so just knowing Valerie was there put me at ease so I could enjoy myself. For any brides considering this venue- the bridal suite was large enough to comfortably get ready with my 6 bridesmaids, hair & make-up artist + photographer; if your party is larger no problem! Mark and his team were also amazing, the food was perfect, bar service superb, there is absolutely nothing I would change. Aside from our perfect wedding, Glenlo Abbey Hotel was fantastic, we loved having a beautiful breakfast each morning. We spent a good amount of time in the Palmer bar which had a great range of whiskeys and cocktails to choose from. We will definitely be back!!

Glenlo Abbey staff could not have been more welcoming to all of us! We were a large group staying there for a wedding and the accommodations were exceptional! Our room was spacious and very clean. While our view was not spectacular, the grounds were breathtaking to walk and enjoy all the places to relax. There was a wonderful bar that we enjoyed in the evening, followed by dinner in the restaurant. The restaurant was a it noisy but the food was delicious, portions perfect. We did not play golf but the golf course was lovely. I also highly recommend dinner at the Pullman car and the morning breakfast was one of the best I had in Ireland. The building is so lovely and appointed with gorgeous antiques. While it is located outside of town, it is worth the beauty to stay away from the downtown area.

Our Wedding Day made extra special! My Wife and I recently had our wedding reception at Glenlo Abbey. Prior to the wedding the venue and the wedding staff team were most accommodating and were happy to help with any of our requests whilst offering us a tea or coffee. They were in regular communication and ensured that our wedding day was going to run just as we wanted. The wedding suite was lovely and the hotel provided ensured both us and both sets of parents were looked after. The wedding day itself ran so smoothly and this was in no doubt down to the commitment of the staff. So many guests complimented the quality of the staff and their constant willingness to go the extra mile. Our wedding breakfast was also stunning. Many guests commented on the quality of the food and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Prior to the wedding the venue had given us a complimentary dining experience in which we sampled a range of food and wines - with the staff offering their expert advice on suitable choices. The hotel really made our wedding planning and our wedding day very easy and reduced the stress and worry considerably. They really made our wedding day a special day to remember.
