Another happy wedding couple share their feedback by Leona Barry 💞
on Mon, 23rd of December, 2019
We had our wedding reception in the Abbey Hotel on the 7th of December 2019. The level of professionalism and service we received right from our initial show around was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble! The food was fantastic and cooked to perfection, right down to the temperature of the fillet of beef. All guests we have spoken to have remarked on it. The day from start to finish was absolutely fabulous.  The wedding coordinators were brilliant and very responsive with emails and calls. Sarah was wonderful on the day and had everything running like clockwork, no detail was overlooked. We could not have been more thrilled with how our day went and would highly recommend the Abbey Hotel for any future couple looking to book their wedding reception

 

WEDDING TESTIMONIAL

We couldn't recommend the Abbey Hotel highly enough. We got married on Friday, January 3rd so it's still only sinking in but we had an absolutely fabulous day. From initial discussions with Geraldine right through to the big day every aspect of the organising was made so simple and stress free. The run up to the day was made so much easier due to the reassurances from Geraldine along with the wedding coordinators Lisa & Sara and the accommodation of our every need. It was a lovely and relaxed day, which is just what we had hoped for.
Everybody was singing the praises of the food especially those who had special requirements... they were really delighted with their meals from start to finish! Every detail was just perfect and we really were over the moon with the day and just had so much fun.
The staff who we encountered over the two days of the wedding were so friendly, accommodating and on the ball...I tipped my chair over at one stage and one of the staff had it upright before I could even reach down for it. The bar and function room staff were attentive to every detail and the food was fantastic. Sean was brilliant and ensured that our top table and all of our guests were happy. His gentle and kind nature really puts your mind at ease with so much happening on the day.
A special thank you to Geraldine and Tom, Lisa, Sara, Sean, Jacinta and Mark the incredible chef.

Many thanks again, Áine & Ken
(and all the Frawleys & Kierseys)

 

It's hard to describe how easy and enjoyable it was to deal with the Abbey. We got married there on Saturday 30th November 2019. I booked the wedding after meeting Geraldine back in April or May. She was so helpful, kind and had a great idea of what we were looking for. The process from start to finish was so easy. Sarah the wedding coordinator was a dream. So friendly, understanding and helpful. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with. When we walked into the room on Saturday it was breathtaking. It couldn't have been better and bar a few seating problems due to some extra guests, it went off without a hitch. The food was beautiful and everybody had enough. The staff have been so friendly and kind it was just a pleasure to be there. I would do it all over again without a second thought. Thanks guys for your outstanding service and human kindness it has made this sometimes stressful process much easier. Edel & Kevin

Wedding Testimonial from Sarah & Ciaran Lennon Longford April 2019 💕

“To Geraldine & Tom Grealy and Family and all the staff,
Thank you so much for giving us the most fantastic day on 6th April. From the moment we had the pleasure of meeting you, you accommodated us in every way. Nothing was too much trouble and our every request was catered for. The attention to detail was second to none, from the drinks reception to table settings and beyond. We had a lot of props that required a lot of set up on the day and Geraldine and her staff listened carefully to what we wanted and set up and displayed everything exactly as we wished. 
We also have to commend in a special way the Chef, the kitchen personnel and the staff involved in our dinner service. We have received so many compliments from our guests about the food served on the day. The presentation and attention to detail with every dish was amazing. Furthermore the service received from every staff member was impeccable and truly faultless. 
We cannot recommend the Abbey highly enough. Its staff instills confidence. They are a pleasure to deal with and are so skilled at what they do. Geraldine even emailed us some candid photographs she had taken of us on the day – just like a friend or a family member would do!
That personal touch provided by the Abbey is in our opinion why it is so special.
We enjoyed every moment of our day and we cannot thank Geraldine and her team enough for making our dream day a reality. We are already looking forward to returning to the Abbey and to meeting everyone again. Sarah and Ciarán Lennon

 

To the Grealy family and staff at the Abbey Hotel. I just wanted to thank you and all your team for the most beautiful perfect wedding day I could have ever imagined. I cannot praise you all enough from the very beginning to the wedding day itself. You were the most amazing group to deal with in every way & I honestly couldn't recommend you enough. The day itself blew me away the food was just out of this world and above all the staff were fantastic and so friendly. Everyone that attended has commented on how beautiful the whole reception was and everyone complimented the fantastic food and how friendly and lovely you all were. For the lovely Julie who was amazing from when we first met, you were so easy to deal with and couldn't do enough for us and, you did everything at such ease, so professional but so enjoyable every time I met you. I didn't worry or stress for one minute at any stage cause I knew I was in very safe hands but actually it was above all expectations. We also won a fabulous prize through the abbey with Boutique Photography which was brilliant, I hardly knew he was there all day, Szymone was so patient was not intrusive and I cannot wait to see what the pictures have turned out. I had a sneak peek of a few and all I can say is fab. I honestly couldn't thank you all enough. I'll be forever grateful that I had the pleasure to meet and deal with you all & that I made the perfect decision by having the wedding in the beautiful Abbey hotel Roscommon . I'll recommend you constantly. Wishing you continued success. Thank you so so much again. Paula and Mark Shine Athlone

  We had the most memorable and amazing wedding reception in the Abbey Hotel on the 21st December 2018.

The food on the day was incredible, which left so many of our guests talking about it days after. The service was so prompt and professional. Julie the wedding co-ordinator has to get a huge mention. She made our whole experience so easy, stress free and enjoyable. She was so accommodating and no request was ever an issue. We are so grateful to all the wonderful staff of the Abbey Hotel for delivering such a magical and perfect day which we will never forget. To all future couples ye will not be disappointed booking this amazing hotel for your special day :)

 “The Abbey Hotel is an amazing hotel, and was first choice when we decided to plan our surprise wedding! We contacted Julie and told her our story and she was so helpful in arranging our big event with us! Julie was great and got back to me promptly any time I had a question about some part of the planning! 
On the night the staff were brilliant! Our ceremony was carried out in the Hotel also and it looked amazing! The food was top class and every one of our guests complimented every aspect of the evening! 
Thanks again to Julie and Adrian for making our day so special and stress free!

“We recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and decided to return to the Abbey where we held our reception. Ten years later and it still remains a wonderful experience. The personal attention we received made our stay all the more special. The staff conduct themselves in a professional yet friendly manner and always appear pleasant and eager to ensure all is well. The food in the Abbey never fails to impress. Thanks for a lovely stay. We highly recommend The Abbey Hotel as venue for any celebration. Emma Tallon

“Most definately was part of Noel and Vicky’s wedding yesterday from start to finish everything was absolutely first class from food to staff just a brilliant venue thanks to the Abbey Hotel for a fantastic day and night

Mr. and Mrs. Murray

“We got married on Friday the 2nd March 2018 and our reception was in the Abbey Hotel, Roscommon. As Storm Emma descended upon the country and brought Ireland to a standstill, who knew what lay ahead for us on our wedding day. As anxiety and worry set in and the rollercoaster of emotions began, a comforting phone call from our wedding co-ordinator finally brought the tears to a front. Tears of relief on this occasion as the Abbey hotel understood what we must be going through. The Grealy family offered compassion, reassurance, help and assistance in order to make things as easy as possible for us and the situation we were in. Let's not forget that a red weather warning was in place and people were advised to stay indoors and not to leave their homes due to the snow. This however did not stop the Abbey Hotel and their staff showing up to work to prepare and present what can only be described as the first class service we received on our wedding day. The food on the day was superb and more than lived up to the reputation we had heard so often about. We are still receiving compliments to that regard. From the minute we walked through the door to organise our wedding, to the moment we left, the hospitality and professionalism of the Grealy family and their staff shone through. For this we will be forever grateful and we will never forget all you did for us. Your hotel will come highly recommended by us. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.  Mr. and Mrs. Murray.

“Myself & my husband got married in the Abbey hotel on the 18th November, I cannot recommend this hotel enough. From the day we booked the abbey on the lead up to our wedding they could not do enough for us, very professional, warm inviting reception every time we visited. On the day of our wedding the service was top class, the food was outstanding & every need for ourselves & our guests was catered for. I would like to thank the wedding coordinator for your help & guidance to the lead up to our wedding.  I would especially like to thank Tom Grealy Jnr & the Grealy family for making our day so special & helping with every detail”. 

Thank you, Denise & Patrick

“On behalf of my husband and I, I would like to thank all the staff of the Abbey Hotel for the fantastic day they provided for us on our wedding.

Everything from the food, service and the comfort of the rooms nothing was out of place. Thank you for making our day so special.

“We had our wedding reception in the Abbey on the 5th of May 2018 and all we can do is speak highly of it.  The day itself was absolutely wonderful. All of my decorations were placed perfectly in the entrance to the ballroom and the ballroom itself. The food was piping hot and delicious and the table service was fantastic. All the guests commented on both the excellent service and the tasty food. The evening food and sandwiches were also brilliant. There wasn't a bite left on any of the tables!! We had also organised to bring a birthday cake out for my dad during the band and the floor manager that night was a great help in organising the planning of this. I would happily highly recommend the Abbey Hotel as a wedding location for any couples planning their wedding in the future!!! Brid Mannion

 

Another happy wedding couple share their Testimonial about their St. Patrick’s Day Wedding at the Abbey

“I don't think there is any more I can say that hasn't been said already but I'll give it a go. Myself and my wife Michelle got married in the Abbey Hotel on March 17th 2018.
All I can say is that it was perfect from start to finish.
The staff, the food, the room decoration, it was all just fantastic. Our wedding was a small affair with 31 guests in total but our small size was not a problem, we received top class treatment from the minute we arrived. Nothing was too much and we were ensured that we had nothing to worry about all day. My cousin is getting married in June and has everything booked but she came up to me today and said if she hadn't everything booked already she'd be booking the Abbey without question. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the Abbey to couples thinking of choosing it as a wedding venue.

 

“Our day was simply perfect with friends saying it was one of the best weddings they had been to. Everyone genuinely had a great day. If we could give more than 5 stars we would. 

Westley & Michelle Freeman
