Weddings in The Abbey Hotel, Roscommon

To Adrian, Caitlin, Elaine, Tom & Staff,

We just want to say Thank You so much for the brilliant wedding day we had on 12th September 2014. We could not have asked for a better day or better service.  The Fortfield Suite looked fantastic. Everyone commented on how great the room looked and how cozy and warm it felt. The tables were all laid out so beautifully with the unexpected leaves bringing our theme all together. I really appreciate the time and effort that went in to making the room look as beautiful as it did. It was exactly how we wanted it to be, actually, even better. The food was amazing as we knew it would be but all our guests said how fantastic the food and the service was.  The day and night went off without any problems and we have had so many comments about it being a great night.  So I just want to say, Thank You so, so much. We are delighted with how everything went. You went above and beyond anything we expected and we really, really appreciate it. Thanks again,

We got married on 21st March 2014 at the Abbey Hotel Roscommon.  My parents and two sisters had their weddings at the Abbey hotel previously.  We were aware from the start of the professionalism of the Abbey Staff, the quality, presentation & ambience of the Hotel that made it the perfect choice of wedding venue for us.  Having come from a back ground in hospitality, it was important to us on our special day, to give our guests the very best, relaxed enjoyable wedding experience.  On arrival we were greeted by the Grealy Family, we had a beautiful bubbly arrival reception with delicious canapés and selection of freshly cut sandwich slices all to be enjoyed whilst being serenaded with our fabulous string duo, it set the mood beautifully.    We arrived into the ballroom, to see the ballroom was quite breath taking, White tall Lilies as our chosen centre pieces, with beautiful crisp white chair covers set the scene of elegance.  Our Meal was absolutely amazing, in a group of 320 Guests which were invited, every single person at the wedding commented on how wonderful the meal was, a common thought was the menu was like a Restaurant Menu so detailed and so well presented.  The guests also complimented our baked Alaska dessert, being 80’s Kids it was our nod to the generation.    Our band was really lively, the dance floor was filled all night long. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful or nicer to our guests, extremely attentive.

Our first visits with the Abbey Hotel was going up for Sunday lunch

And that day with the excellent food made us book our wedding I believed if the restaurant food could be as excellent as it was on a Sunday I couldn't wait to taste the wedding food. We had our wedding in the Abbey Hotel on 28th December 2013 and I have to say from start to finish the team were brilliant. We had a big wedding and 300 hungry guest and my fears were people wouldn't be happy but all we heard afterwards was how beautiful the meal was and the friendly/helpful the staff was. Elaine and Caitlin were brilliant they never said no to any of my ideas which meant I got to have the wedding the way I wanted. I really couldn't recommend The Abbey enough, the meal was on time guests were happy and most of all we were happy with everything.

We had our Wedding reception in the Abbey just over a year ago. From day one of meeting Adrian & Tom Greally Jnr they assured us that we would have nothing to worry about on the day - true to their word, timing was meticulous and as a result we truly got the most out of our day.
The food we got to choose from attending a food tasting day and it was beyond expectation on the day. Efficient servers ensured hot dinners served to all tables together. We had a very mixed age group of guests and all enjoyed the meal immensely and some were delighted to get to sample both main course choices when there was 2nd helpings!
As a lot of our guests travelled to Roscommon for the wedding, they made it a two night stay and all of them were high in their praise of the staff they met at reception, the bar, breakfast saying they were all so friendly and polite.
From our first meeting to pick our dates to checking out 2 days after the wedding, we were extremely happy with The Abbey Hotel management and staff. It was our absolute pleasure to bring so many of our friends and family to Roscommon and host them in such a warm, friendly hotel.
We look forward to many more reasons to celebrate in The Abbey!

To all the staff at The Abbey Hotel, Thank you for making our wedding day so special. From start to finish it was superbly and so professionally run and our guests have complimented the food and service on the day. What we admired about the hotel was the character and charm it possesses both inside and out which is very unique in relation to the so many modern day hotels. We especially found that the old ruins adjacent to the hotel were extremely suitable for our wedding photos and indeed the fantastic gardens, beautiful location, so ideal, weather permitting.

We recently held our wedding in the Abbey and I couldn't compliment it enough. From the start Adrian was very accommodating and took away any of the stress of the occasion. It was great to have them there during the day to make sure everything ran smoothly.  We were fortunate that it was a lovely day and as always the grounds of the hotel were in pristine condition and ideal for pictures. The canapés, wine and refreshments on arrival were plentiful and delicious!  In particular, we got great compliments from our guests regarding the food. We opted to pay supplements for fillet beef and seabass for the main course and these proved to be a huge hit. All the food was nicely presented and although we split the speeches before and after the meal, the service was top class and any request we made was immediately taken care of.   It is easy to see why the Abbey remains such a popular location for weddings throughout the years and I have no doubt their success will continue for many years to come.

Just want to say a huge thank you to Adrian and everyone in the Abbey for an absolute fantastic day.  Our wedding (Sept 1st) was absolutely amazing and so so many people commented on the venue, the food (a lot of people said they are coming back to Roscommon just to have another meal in the Abbey, they were so impressed!), the service, and everything was incredible.   So just want to say thank you so so very much for being so helpful, and making the whole process stress free and you really are brilliant at your job.  Anyway thanks so much, Kind Regards
