I found it brilliant that Karen was so helpful and organised and I didn’t have to worry about anything on the day. The atmosphere in hotel was lovely and everyone really enjoyed the day!

Lynsey & Daniel

Booking our wedding here was the best decision we made. From day one when we picked the date to the day after the wedding, we found the staff and hotel to be top notch. The hotel itself is gorgeous. The function room is huge and was dressed beautifully. The staff were the perfect mix of professional and friendly. Karen and Ruth had everything running like clockwork all day. The rooms were great and dozens upon dozens of family and friends have complimented us on the choice of venue from the food to the rooms. I couldn't recommend the venue highly enough as an ideal place to have a wedding.

Kristine & Michael

 No words can describe how wonderful Karen Brady and all the staff at the Lough Rea Hotel were during our recent wedding there. The food, service, and professionalism were beyond our expectations. From the moment we met Karen we knew we were in the best of hands. Nothing was too much trouble. She made us feel like our wedding was as important to her as it was to the both of us. All of our guests were blown away by the amazing food and the exceptional service - it really was 5 star quality. I would highly recommend Lough Rea Hotel as a wedding venue to any newly engaged couples. And again, to Karen and her team - well done and thank you all so much.

Maura & Dougie

We just had our wedding reception at the Loughrea Hotel and Spa last weekend on July 1st. We could not have asked for a more welcoming and professional staff to serve our wedding. The function room was amazing and the food was perfect, everyone complimented it. Karen Brady is such an amazing person to deal with and the team alongside her are a credit to the hotel. We even had food served in the residents bar at 3am! Just brilliant. Could not recommend this hotel enough. The bridal suite is out of this world! We can see why it is winning so many awards. Thanks to each and every one of you! We will most certainly be back.

The food was fantastic the hotel looked amazing. I would like to say a special thanks to Karen Brady on having the patience of a saint you were outstanding looking after us (you definately deserve a pay rise).

Frankie & Denise

Karen and her team were so friendly, approachable and accommodating. Even if we were over for dinner or lunch in the months leading up to the wedding all the staff would have a chat with us and ask us about our plans and really made us look forward to our day more.

I have not got enough kind words for Karen Brady she truly is a testament to the hotel, so down to earth, helpful and funny she really knows how to put you at ease. Our wedding day was amazing from start to finish the food, the service, the warmth of the staff we just could not have asked for more. We can't thank you enough for making our day so magical and we look forward to returning to the hotel again as regular customers for dinner etc. Thank you again to Karen and team for everything you truly made our day so special.

Denise and Frankie, May 2017


Rebecca & Liam

The staff were fabulous and everything looked amazing! The wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more. Karen Brady was amazing and never complained about anything ridiculous that we requested! In fact, she seemed to love making sure we were happy, and we were. The guests were raving about how wonderful the staff are, we were all so at ease and they made us feel so comfortable. The function room and ceremony room were perfectly beautiful in every way. There wasn't a stone unturned! The day was made perfect because of The Loughrea Hotel and Karen Brady and I can't wait to watch it over on video. Thank you!

Rebecca & Liam, May 2017

Niamh & Shane

Karen was extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. She really cared and wanted to make sure everything was perfect for us. We felt we could ask her anything at any time, and she would always come back to us. Our wedding in March was the happiest day of my life, I am so happy that we chose the Loughrea Hotel for our wedding reception. The staff were so friendly, professional and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble! The function room looked lovely and the food was absolutely delicious. It was a special touch that Pat McDonagh took time out of his busy schedule to introduce himself to us. He gave some of the kid’s vouchers for Supermacs. He also stood for a photo with my cousin!

Special thanks to Karen Brady for organising our wedding, you are super at your job! Anything I asked of her was, "no problem" I had absolutely nothing to worry about, thanks again!

We had such a fantastic day in the Lough Rea hotel. The staff were very efficient and friendly to us on any of our dealings and to all of our guests. Which makes such a difference in my opinion. The food was delicious! Our guests were delighted with the option for a second helping of the main course on the day of the wedding also and the Supermacs boxes went down a treat! From the moment we booked the hotel Karen made the organising as stress free as possible, she was definitely the best part of the experience. So easy deal with and always so friendly.  - We couldn't have asked for better.

Everyone we dealt with in the hotel in the led up to the wedding from phone calls to hotel visits were extremely friendly and helpful which helped us enjoy the experience so much and gave us such confidence in the Loughrea Hotel as a wedding venue.

Catherine & Karl
We decided to book the Loughrea Hotel & Spa as we fell in love with the place from our first visit. After making the decision everything else was so easy and this was because of Karen our wedding coordinator who was always on hand to offer advice and answer queries. We had a civil ceremony and the room was amazing and the turnaround efficient. The reception, the meal was Devine, my vegetarian friends said it was the nicest vegetarian meal they had gotten at a wedding in a long time. Another few guests who had dietary requirements were looked after easily and all commented at how great the service was. The night after we had a party on the rooftop bar, this bar is just brilliant the BBQ was gorgeous and everybody thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We cannot say enough good about the hotel, we had a lot of children at the day and the children’s playroom was a great hit we barely saw them for the day they were all delighted having their own space. The bridal suite- amazing could have stayed there in our own bubble forever. Thank you to everyone you made our day one to remember for ever for all our guests.

Myself and Mike have been together for nearly 13 years when we got married 29th August 2015, nearly 11 years engaged, 2 years organizing it with 3 children and it was way worth the wait.

Michelle & Shaun
The standard of service was fantastic from first contact in September 2013 with Jennifer all the way through to the big day with Karen and all the staff especially the banqueting staff during the meal. Anything we asked for they provided without hesitation. The setup of the function perfectly complimented my Cadbury's purple theme. The food was some of the best I have eaten at any wedding, any one that had any dietary requirement were catered for. The Piano room was perfect for keeping guests entertained, loved the presentation of the candy cart & the champagne class. The parents of the children invited were happy with the area for them to play in and toys to keep them occupied throughout the day! We could go on but I'll sum by saying thank you so much for making our big day a perfect day.
Michelle & Shaun, July 2015

Michelle & Dave
We had our wedding in the Loughrea Hotel and Spa in July. We were thrilled with everything from the beginning at the planning stages to the day itself. Karen the wedding Co ordinator was super! She is extremely professional with great attention to detail. She is a real asset to the hotel. The meal was served without delay and it was beautiful. Many of our guests remarked at how friendly and professional all the hotel staff were especially the servers. We had some guests with specific dietary requirements and they were catered for perfectly.We had some children at our wedding, the smaller room just off the piano lounge was great. We had arranged for the kids to have their dinner served in there so the parents got to have their meal in peace, they were delighted. The hotel also had some DVDs and games organised for them so they were entertained for hours. The bridal suite was fabulous. We were treated to a champagne breakfast the following morning which we enjoyed looking out at the beautiful views of Loughrea Lake. Although the weather for the day after wasn't in our favour, we had a bbq on the rooftop garden. The rooftop conservatory was great for our small gathering. The food was great and the cocktails were even better!
We would highly recommend the Loughrea Hotel and Spa for a wedding or any special occasion. We would sincerely like to thank Pat and Una and all the staff especially Karen for all their hard work which made our day so memorable.
