We couldn’t be happier with our experience at The Lakeside Hotel. From our first meeting with Catherine, to our wedding day, we found all staff to be very professional and friendly. The reception area, function room and grounds were beautiful and the food was spectacular. The service was fantastic. We really appreciated the attention to detail and the warm welcoming atmosphere. Thank you so much for making our day so memorable!

We had the pleasure of getting married in October 2019 in this hotel. From start to finish the entire experience was a pure dream. It all started with our first meeting with Catherine who took such care of us throughout the whole process. People say it can be quite stressful planning a wedding but I can truly say if Catherine and the team are at the helm the stress is gone! We had an absolutely magical day and our guests still talk about it when we meet them we would highly recommended The Lakeside Hotel for your big day. I can’t rate both the place and the team highly enough!  Thanks again guys Anna & Brian Dolan

We got married in the Lakeside Hotel on the 20th of December 2019 and it was the best day of lives. From the moment we booked our date, all the staff in the Lakeside Hotel could not have being more helpful, they were all exceptional. With a special mention to Catherine Lewis our wedding coordinator, she was amazing and paid such attention to detail.  Catherine guided us through every detail prior to our day and ensured everything would run smoothly. All we had to do was turn up, she really could not have done anything more to make our experience any better. The food was incredible including accommodating for many dietary requirements to an amazing quality. The ballroom looked fantastic and was magical looking at Christmas! We could not have wished for a better place to celebrate. Thank you to all staff in the Lakeside hotel for everything, we had the best day 😊

We got married in the Lakeside Hotel in May 2019. we couldn't recommend the Lakeside highly enough. We planned a wedding from abroad, but Catherine and the team in the Lakeside made the planning so easy. They were there every step of the way to offer help and advice. the day itself ran like a dream - our guests were blown away by the staff, the quality of the food and how smoothly the day went. Catherine was just amazing to work with - she is every brides dream!

Our April wedding in the Lakeside was absolutely perfect. Sure we were lucky with the weather but the hotel was the perfect venue and backdrop for our big day.

Not particularly wanting a big wedding and finding most function rooms poorly designed and decorated the Lakeside is wonderfully laid out with every part of the hotel being suited to pictures, with little nooks and areas for private drinks and secret chats in cosy sofas. It has a lovely atmosphere and the staff are wonderful.

The grounds are so well designed and laid out. The flower beds were gorgeous and the trees are such a great spot for photo opportunities. We were lucky enough to be able to hold the ceremony outside and it was perfect. Having access to the jetty down by the water really added something extra to our photographs as well.

Catherine our coordinator was attentive and so friendly and we felt special and cared for.  

The food for the meal was so good and our guests were so happy and still mention how tasty it was.

The breakfast room in the hotel is so pretty and was such a lovely space to shake off the sore heads from the night before.

Having coffees on the deck overlooking the Shannon the following morning was a real treat, we lingered for hours!

We even came back for our first anniversary and stayed in the new waterside rooms and went sailing on the Shannon. It really is a special place to us now.

Both Rory and I can't thank everyone at the Lakeside enough. It really is a gem if you hope to get married in the West.

We had our civil wedding in the Lakeside Hotel on 20 Sept 2019 and were moved by the overall experience. Catherine Lewis the hotel’s wedding planner was so genuine and guided us through the

day with ease and such professionalism. The venue was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery and overall experience.

Catherine and the rest of the staff were nothing but helpful in the run up and during the course of our weekend-we could not praise them enough.

Our guests loved the setting of our wedding vows ceremony in the gardens overlooking the lake and the added bonus of Catherine performing at the ceremony which everybody thought she officiated

so well.

The venue played a huge part in the success of our weekend and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is testament to that.

Both Willie and myself totally enjoyed our day and would definitely recommend the Lakeside Hotel it was flawless from the very first day I met Catherine to the day of our wedding.
