"I have just celebrated my wedding at Glenlo Abbey. If TripAdvisor had six stars - I wouldn’t hesitate to give them on this review. Everything from planning the wedding with Ethan, to checking out the next day was utterly seamless, professional and delightful. The service experienced by all our guests, including lots of children, was of the very highest calibre and everyone felt completely looked after. The hotel is simply beautiful, elegant, timelessly classic, and with warm turf fires, decadent furniture and beds, and wonderful food, the whole experience was utterly unique and special. Thank you Glenlo. Lucy & Danny"

"I wanted to drop a short note to express our heartfelt thanks to you and the team at the Glenlo Abbey for helping us put on the most magical day for our Wedding at the hotel on 11th October. It was a dream come true for me getting married there being that I had expressed at the age of 9 to my parents that that was the place I would one day marry. Everything went like a dream that day.

From the start of the rehearsal evening the day before to the end of the events on the Saturday morning everyone was so warm, friendly and welcoming. They couldn't do enough for us and we and all of our guests appreciated it so much!

Working with you in preparation for our big day was a breeze and we appreciate all you did for us. It was lovely having you there on the day, a friendly face who couldn't do enough for us. The food was beautiful, staff in the reception room attentive and professional. I couldn't recommend Glenlo Abbey as a wedding venue enough and thanks to you all for everything you did to make our day special. We look forward to returning to the venue on our next trip home!"

"From planning our special day up to checking out as newlyweds, every detail of our experience at Glenlo Abbey was exceptional. I have never felt more welcome and at ease in any hotel before. Front desk staff were extremely friendly, almost as though I was family. I was made to feel so comfortable from day 1 and no question was too silly to ask. On our day itself, well where do I begin! Valerie was fantastic, and really took it all in her hands and made sure the day ran smoothly! We were made feel like royalty by waiting staff, who introduced themselves by name and told us they would be looking after everything we need for the evening. The bar staff, in particular Aaron in the downstairs bar, made us feel like close friends and we were able to relax and enjoy our night. Overall an absolutely amazing experience, all of my guests said it was the staff at GlenloAbbey that just made the day! They truly were the cherry on top of what was a beautiful day in a fabulous location! We cannot wait to come back again very soon!"
