Weddings at Glenlo Abbey


Lucy & Danny

“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, 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”


Emer & Christian

“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!”

“Destination Wedding Ireland


We had our destination wedding at the Glenlo and it exceeded all expectations. It is a bit nerve wracking having a destination wedding at a venue you have never seen prior, but the team made it seamless! We have been to Ireland a few times, but never to the Glenlo. When we researched venues we feel in love with it online and after our initial call, there was no question about having our wedding there. They are quick to respond which is important when you are planning from far away. Also the place is so beautiful you really do not need extra decorations which makes you save money and makes your life a lot easier. The team is wonderful to work with, you made a supposedly stressful day absolutely stress free for us. Thank you!

We had our ceremony in the Abbey, dinner in the River Room and our reception in the Dangan room. It worked out perfectly! The food and drinks were wonderful. My only tip would be to ask the couple what drinks may be popular as our group drinks Jameson like water and unfortunately they ran out of Jameson before the ceremony even started. Was not a big deal as there were other options, but maybe something to do for future weddings. All in all I have not stopped raving about how amazing this venue and team are. I would get married there again ten times over and cannot wait to be back to visit so we can stay at the Glenlo again!”


Keli & Jeremy

“My husband and I were married at Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate 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 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 that the events team were 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! The food was perfect, bar service superb, there is absolutely nothing I would change. Aside from our perfect wedding, Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate 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!!”


Maire & Barry

“We just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work in the run up to our wedding. The service we received in Glenlo Abbey was amazing and the day ran very smoothly thanks to you and the rest of the staff. We were blessed with great weather and had an amazing weekend. It was all over too quickly!”


Caoimhe & James

“James and I would really like to thank you and everyone at Glenlo Abbey for everything that you did for us. We had the most fantastic memorable day thanks to you all. We honestly can’t thank you enough. We’ll be back for sure., Thank you so much again and I hope you’re keeping well! ”


Ailbhe & Liam

“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! The team was fantastic, and really took it all in their 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 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!”


Joe & Niamh

“Dear Valerie Sharon and team, Now that the dust has settled after our wedding on the 22nd of December we want to drop you a quick note to say thanks. The day was flawless from start to finish and the team in Glenlo had a huge part to play in that. The reception, service, food and attention to detail surpassed all of our expectations and for that we will be forever grateful! Our guests had an amazing day and we are still getting messages from people complementing the whole event.

We will of course sing Glenlos praises to anyone who asks us about it in terms of a wedding venue. We cannot thank you all enough for your help from start to finish and I hope the powers that be in Glenlo can see this message so they know the fantastic staff they have in place to deal with a wedding like ours. Best of luck in the future and we can’t wait to visit again soon”


Sarah & David

“Just a quick note to thank you so much for our wedding. We couldn’t have had a better time. All of our guests were raving about the staff and the venue.”


Dan & Laura

“This is just a quick thank you from both Laura and myself. Our wedding day could not have been more perfect and this was largely down to the wonderful work that you and all the Glenlo staff put into making our day so special both prior to the day and during. All our guests passed comment on the stunning venue, the delicious food but most importantly the quality of service they received. Many thanks again!”


Claire & Dave

“Hi Cathy! We just wanted to send an email to say a massive thank you for our wonderful wedding day! We absolutely loved it! From start to finish. Everything ran so smoothly and your amazing team made everything feel so effortless. Thank you to everyone and a very special thank you to yourself, Colin and Shane. We are so grateful. Anyway, I hope you’re having a well deserved rest. You certainly deserve it! Sending lots of thank you from Wexford!”


Elaine and John

“We were extremely fortunate to have been able to have our wedding ceremony in the spectacular Glenlo Abbey. From the very moment we met with the events team, we knew Glenlo Abbey was everything we were looking for and more than we could have ever imagined. The events team are so professional and extremely accommodating – a dream for any couple to work with, nothing was ever a problem. We had a Spiritualist ceremony in the stunning Corrib Suite overlooking the golf course and had over 200 guests in attendance. The day was a bright but frosty and Glenlo was a winter wonderland with Christmas decorations and lights – a truly unique and magical setting for any wedding.

We have been inundated with compliments from our guests on our venue choice, claiming it was one of the nicest ceremony venues they had ever witnessed. We are so happy we chose Glenlo Abbey and would highly recommend it to all engaged couples. Not only is the function room so bright and beautiful, but the grounds are a photographer and videographer’s playground. We would like to extend our most heartfelt ‘thank you’ to all the staff at Glenlo Abbey for making our wedding day so special”.

”Just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks so much for your help over the last few months and your part in what was a great day Friday. We had an absolutely fabulous day and weekend. Glenlo abbey completely exceeded our expectations and everyone I spoke to was blown away by the food, the service, the staff, the atmosphere and the venue. The staff were so lovely and friendly and made us feel so special from the lovely blonde haired girl on reception when I locked my keys in the room through to the cleaning staff. Please pass on our sincere thanks, you have a great team there. Am sure you’re busy getting ready for another wedding as we speak. If they have half as good a day as we had they’re in for a treat.“


Clodagh & Tom

“We recently had our wedding reception at the Glenlo Abbey Hotel & Estate and felt compelled to write a review. Where do we start….from our very first meeting with the events team right through to the day itself was seamless. A particular thanks goes to our wedding coordinator who has a can do attitude, no request was too big! Any query we had was dealt with straight away and was always so friendly in her approach. From our first meeting with the Food and Beverage Manager, we knew we were in great hands. The professionalism was admirable and on the day itself the team regularly checked in with us to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. If you are thinking of booking Glenlo for your upcoming wedding all I can say is don’t think, just book! The venue, food and ambience is top class however what I feel really makes Glenlo Abbey such a winner is staff. The attitude of the staff in Glenlo is not ‘that’s not my department’, it’s allow me to get that sorted. Overall the staff in Glenlo focus their complete attention on you! Glenlo is filled with and driven by employees with positive attitudes and that in my opinion is what makes it a top class hotel along with the food and venue being outstanding. Let them assist you in making your day perfect!”

Zoe and Lorcan

“Firstly I’d like to say a big thank you for all your assistance with the wedding – it’s been a pleasure dealing with you and you did a fantastic job helping us to pull everything together and work with us from overseas. We’ve had great feedback from guests that it was a wonderful night and people particularly enjoyed the food (lots of compliments!) The staff were great on the night also, very attentive. Thanks again for everything.”


Yao and Evan

“Paddy and I want to thank you most sincerely for the wedding last Saturday. It was simply wonderful and exactly how we wanted it. The food from canapés to main meal to the late night food was excellent and beautifully presented. The staff were truly excellent and so helpful. The BBQ on Sunday was really lovely and everyone loved the boat trip. I checked with lots of guests and they were uniform in their praise of the hotel. We want to thank you for your own personal attention to detail and all your very excellent advice. Thank you again for a most memorable weekend. I intend to tell anyone planning weddings in Galway to consider the hotel.”


Laura and Joe

“Thank you so much for everything you did in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. It went off without a hitch! We appreciate all the planning and behind the scenes work that made our wedding reception. All of your staff were very professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with on the day and for our entire stay. Best wishes for the future”
