What Our Brides & Grooms Say
We cannot possibly contain enough words to completely express our appreciation. When it came time to a wedding planner, we thank our lucky stars we found Sally & the Lough Rea Hotel! We are still in awe when we look back on everything Sally did for us before, during and after the wedding. Without Sally’s help our special day would not have been the picture-perfect event we always dreamed of. Sally’s planning, preparation, and attention to detail was amazing. Thank you so much. We appreciate Sally more than words can say. A special thanks also to the staff on the day who were amazing and so professional, especially Ruth who was amazing and ensured everything ran smoothly during the meal. We could not fault any aspect of the service from the hotel and have had nothing but praise in relation to the accommodation, meal etc. Again thank ye all so much.
Aine & Damian
From the day we booked our wedding with the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa, they were so helpful, professional and accommodating. Sally helped us plan our big day for months and made everything so easy for us! The attention to detail was amazing and nothing was missed on the day that we had asked for. Sally always replied to our many emails very quick and was always so helpful with everything, she took the stress out of planning a wedding! The staff at the hotel overall are excellent, from the waiting staff to bar staff to reservations staff, they were all brilliant. The food was so amazing, many guests told us afterwards that they really enjoyed the meal. The food was out so quick for everyone which was brilliant. Ruth and Brian were there on the day and everything ran so smoothly. Ruth kept checking in with us to see if we needed anything, and we were able to relax for the day as everything was organised so well. I would give the hotel a 10 of 10 for weddings!! They exceeded our expectations, and we were so grateful that we could also enjoy the build up to the wedding stress-free, we knew we were in good hands and didn’t need to worry about anything. Thanks to everyone at the hotel for a super day!!!
Sorcha & Peter
We recently got married in The Lough Rea Hotel and Spa and we were so thrilled with how everything went. The wedding coordinator, Sally, went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we were happy with every minute detail. The food, wine and service on the day were second to none and we have been getting such positive feedback from our guests. We will certainly be booking the hotel for future family events and would highly recommend the hotel to future wedding couples.
Elaine & Ciaran
From the very second we stepped out of the car and into the hotel on our wedding day everything was pure perfection. Choosing Lough Rea Hotel was the best decision I made. Everything they said they would provide for us was reached with a professional and courteous manner. All staff working that day were gracious, cheerful and extremely professional in more particular the waiter and waitress serving us our food. Extremely helpful staff and smiled all day long. The hotel itself is very clean, the rooms were beautiful I had a lot of guests saying they would be back to stay they were well impressed with rooms, the function room was decorated beautifully. The food was fantastic and that is what makes this hotel a cut above the rest, a guest said to me, you’d know the food was good when every plate went back empty. Our wedding was somewhat big the function room was full but every dinner went out hot, in a timely and professional manner, the meats were tender and tasty, plenty of food offered with extra vegetables given. Prior to dinner, we had turkey and ham carvery for the pre-dinner reception which I noticed had a long queue to it as people were saying it was extremely tasty. At the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa in the wonderful care of Sally Brogan they will provide you with the reception you want and deserve from small to big there is nothing they cannot provide, Sally is a pure joy to work with and will work tirelessly to achieve that for you, I would recommend this hotel 100% as I am delighted I chose Lough Rea Hotel and Spa.
Martina & Adrian
From the bottom of our hearts thank you Sally so much for your hard work with our wedding day. The team at the Loughrea Hotel & Spa were just amazing and gave us so much more above and beyond what we expected!
From the moment we met Sally Brogan we found it such a pleasure to deal with her, she really understood our dream and made us feel we made the right choice for our wedding venue.
On the wedding day, everything from our meal, flowers, lighting, accommodation, playlists and decor was superb. It really made our day amazing!
Sally we were so lucky to have you make our special day so beautiful. I knew from the beginning you understood completely what I was looking for and for that I thank you so so so much!
You & the team at the Loughrea Hotel & Spa are 5 star. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Laura & Kieran
What a wonderful wedding venue! I would absolutely recommend the Loughrea Hotel and Spa to any future brides and grooms. Sally, our wedding coordinator was so attentive and efficient from our first meeting with her, right through to our special day and beyond! She was only ever a phone call or email away whenever I had any queries in the lead up to our special day. She, the other managers and members of staff made everything about our wedding so special and memorable. Steve and Ruth looked our reception so well along with the night manager Stephen and the porters who took great care of our guests during the latter part of the evening. I cannot thank them all enough as all of the staff went above and beyond for us not only on our big day, but also during the lead up. My groom and I were well and truly able to relax and leave everything in their capable hands. The food and service was second to none and everything was so highly praised and complimented by all of our guests. We are so grateful to the Loughrea Hotel for an amazing wedding and we delighted that we chose it as our wedding venue
Marian & Shane
We had a fantastic experience with the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa from start to finish. We had no problems what so ever planning our wedding with both Karen and Sally. The venue and meal were both beautiful on the day. We would highly recommend this hotel!
Emma & Micheal
When we were planning our wedding there was no where else we looked as the Loughrea Spa hotel was stunning and its location was perfect for us. From day one everyone was so helpful and nothing was too big or too small. Sally was amazing to deal with and made the whole experience so easy and stress free. The week leading up to the wedding, any extra bits we wanted to add to the venue, the hotel were so accommodating and had everything in place for us on the day of the wedding just the way we wanted! Sally, Ruth and their team were so helpful and looked after us and our guests very well, food was amazing! The venue looked beautiful on the day and the bridal suite was fabulous over looking the views of Loughrea and the lake. We would recommend this hotel to any couple!
Andrea & Shane
There was never any doubt in our minds where we wanted our wedding ceremony and reception. The whole experience with the Loughrea Hotel and Spa from start to finish was so easy. Sally was always on hand and accessible to answer any questions. The day of our wedding the team transformed the function room into a beautiful intimate space for our humanist ceremony. The reception was fantastic and the service was exceptional. Our guests were very impressed with the venue and the beautiful food. It was a day we will both treasure for ever and it was totally enhanced by the wonderful staff of the Loughrea Hotel and Spa, especially Sally Brogan. We cannot thank ye enough for a wonderful experience. Andrea & Shane October 2018 x
Aisling & Aiden
We really couldn’t fault the Loughrea hotel and spa for our wedding day. From the day we picked it as a venue all the team were so easy to work with. Sally was a great help and made the day stress free for us both. The food was amazing from the food tasting to on the day. Everyone said how beautiful it was the ball room looked amazing. All the staff are so accommodating and really went out of their way for us.
Kristine & Brendan
Words can’t describe how amazing our experience has been. When we were planning our wedding there was no where else we looked at as we always loved the lough rea hotel and its location was perfect for us. Our expectations were completely exceeded. We first dealt with Karen and she was so informative and very helpful and we immediately arranged booking our wedding with her. After some months she then informed us she was leaving at first we were a bit anxious/concerned as we had been dealing with her all along however from the first meeting with Sally she completely put us at ease. She was amazing to deal with and she had everything under control. The week leading up to the wedding, any extra bits we wanted to add to the venue, the hotel were so accommodating and had everything in place for us on the day of the wedding. Sally,Steve, Martin and Ruth and their teams were so helpful and looked after us and our guests there were all very attentive to everyone.
The venue looked beautiful on the day and the bridal suite was amazing over looking the beautiful views of Loughrea and the lake. Planning our wedding with the Loughrea has been a dream and would do it all over again.
Kieran & Aoife
With all the lead up to the wedding stressful, we can’t praise Sally high enough with how good she was helping with everything and the day was just perfect ❤ Too the Lough Rea hotel and Sally of course we can’t thank you enough for the high standard of service on the day of our wedding . The decor was beautiful the food was gorgeous overall we were delighted with everything. Couldn’t fault the hotel in any way
Linda & PJ
We had our day on the 28th September 2018 in the Loughrea hotel and spa. The service from beginning to end was second to none, every detail was perfect and no job too big. Sally and the team were a pleasure to deal with from the day we booked the wedding right through to the day itself! The ballroom looked amazing on the day and attention to detail was perfect. The staff on the day were so helpful and friendly and the food was outstanding. The efficiency of the service in every aspect was impeccable. We had a bbq on day 2 in the rooftop garden and the excellent service was carried right through to the end. I couldn’t recommend this hotel and its staff highly enough, they really made our day as special as it could be!
Gerard & Stefano
What can we say about the Loughrea hotel and spa?
Over the last 18 months, we have had an amazing experience.
The management and staff have been nothing short of amazing.
We were treated so well and the lead up to our wedding we had over 140 guests arrive from Tipperary UK and Dublin.
The food was fantastic and asking all our guests how was everything they had nothing but good things to say about the hotel staff rooms and food.
Karen was the first wedding coordinator we met and then we met Sally who was there for us at everything we needed, so helpful and kind and anything we asked was done. Thank you Sally so much. You are so fabulous at what you do.
All the staff from front of house, bar, waiting restaurant floor, all staff were so lovely and helpful.
Our wedding day we could not have asked for more and everyone was treated like kings and queens. Food was amazing and we asked each table how was food and they had all enjoyed it so much. Thanks to the chefs and kitchen staff.
Everything went off more than we expected and more again.
They worked with our suppliers so well and nothing was too much trouble.
Sometimes things happen and go wrong and if anything went wrong it was fixed in an instant.
A fantastic hotel with fantastic staff
Food rooms and amazing rooftop.
Thank you Loughrea and all of you that are there for making our wedding a time we will never forget.
We will be back.
Lots of love

Roisin & Adam
We could not recommend the Loughrea Hotel and Spa enough. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout the weekend. The Function Room, Roof Top Bar, Bedrooms and Spa were perfect. Food was amazing both on the day itself and for the BBQ the following day. We literally haven’t a bad word to say about the venue or the staff.
Paulette & Dara
We had a fantastic wedding day with the help of Sally the wedding co-ordinator. Sally was fast on replying to any query and so helpful to us. The hotel staff were so friendly. Our families and friends loved the hotel and all said the food was lovely.
Linda & Michael
Nothing was a problem and eveything was done so efficiently. Staff were helpful and friendly at all times. Also the food was perfect. Fantastic place for a wedding food and function room just perfect. Staff are so helpful and friendly!!
Leanne & William
We had our wedding reception in the Lough Rea hotel on the 16th of August. From the get-go we were at ease, we felt so relaxed during the planning stage and in the lead up to the wedding day. Planning was so easy with Sally and the team. Sally became our friend not just our wedding planner. She was always professional but personal too and that meant the world to us. The day of the wedding went very smoothly and we were able to relax, enjoy and take everything in. The wedding team took over and they did an excellent job. Anything we asked Sally- she did for us. The same goes for all of the staff including Steven and Martin, everyone was so helpful and made us feel really special. From the day we picked the hotel for our reception, everything was made very easy. We can’t thank the staff of the hotel enough for giving us the best day of our lives. We would recommend the hotel to anyone who wants friendly, relaxed and efficient service.
Leanne & Cathal
From the very first visit to the hotel, we were sure it was right for us! The meeting with the original wedding coordinator was so relaxing and stress free! We gave her an idea of our budget and some dates and she worked through everything with us! Then we had a transition to a new coordinator, which worried me at first but was seamless! Sally was brilliant from start to finish! And put up with all of my million questions with such patience!! The food was so highly complimented by all the guests! The staff were incredibly flexible as we had a few unusual requests in terms of evening entertainment and nothing was a problem! I honestly cannot fault a single thing from booking it through to two days after the wedding when we eventually left! We would highly recommend it as a wedding venue to anybody! It’s exceptional value for money!
Francesca & Sean
Perfect venue for anyone’s wedding. Very well organised and very flexible to accommodate your needs. All the staff we exceptional and really made our day special!
Maria & Wayne
Where do I start, we booked our wedding two years in advance after visiting the hotel for Sunday lunch and being blown away by the hotel itself and the staff. Always thought a good way to judge a potential venue is by the food in the restaurant on any given day and I can’t tell how amazing it is. It was the reason we decided to see if the then co-ordinator, was available to show us around. The hotel itself has a fantastic atmosphere, and packages that suit every budget, and wedding. We booked it there and then! We got some great recommendations from the hotel, about bands etc which was a great help. Any questions or help needed was never any trouble. Sally came on board about 8 months before our wedding and she was amazing. She had very big shoes to fill and she’s certainly done that together with Steve. The day itself went so so well, I wasn’t stressed either way as I knew there was no need to. Most of this is down to Sally & Steve….The dream team! We had our ceremony in the hotel also which went amazingly. Sally was there cool, calm and collected, directing everyone to where they should be and making sure it all ran smoothly. For our drinks reception, we were off having photo’s done and every single guest commented on the food and service they received during this time. It was all exquisite. Again, the food served at the hotel is second to none, it’s top top quality. Steve took over from the first course being served and it was like watching a conductor of an orchestra, fantastic to watch. Everything went perfectly, bearing in mind we had two small children of our own, one of which decided today was the day for the absolute meltdown of the year. Steve even went off to get calpol for me!! Nothing was too much trouble. I’ve only a few lines left to say everything and it’s not enough. Every one of our guests had to travel for our wedding and every one of them left with an assurance that they would be staying there again. The hotel is amazing, the staff are top class!
Valerie & Brian
Absolutely top class from start to finish. There was never a moment of panic or pressure from the first day we started organizing the wedding until the morning we left the hotel after it. Everything was done with the minimum of fuss. Sally is a pure professional and so friendly you would think you knew her all your life..! Staff were so professional and friendly and just put everybody at ease. Food was brilliant all guests were complimenting it. Would highly recommend the hotel to anybody getting married – an absolute pleasure to deal with.
Eimear & Alan
We would like to thank everyone at Lough Rea Hotel and Spa for everything they did for us in the lead up to and on the day of our wedding.
Sally, the wedding coordinator was absolutely fantastic and couldn’t do enough to ensure our experience at the hotel was top notch. Her attention to detail and willingness to help us achieve the day we had dreamed of was felt right from the off. From initial meetings and emails, we were sure we’d made the right decision in having our wedding in Lough Rea.
On the day of the wedding, the food and table service was second to none and we received many compliments from the guests. Everyone had a fantastic day and many guests remarked that all staff couldn’t have been more helpful, from waiters to bar staff, the experience was amazing.
The car service provided with our package was beautiful and little details throughout the day didn’t go unnoticed.
We cannot recommend the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa highly enough and will be telling all of our engaged friends to go and have a look for themselves and to meet with Sally.
Looking forward to coming back to stay with you again very soon.
Best wishes from Alan and Eimear Glynn
Fiona & Kevin
From start to finish all the staff from the wedding manager to the floor staff on the day were excellent. Made the whole day and experience really easy and enjoyable. Also the food and wine was fantastic. For us, it couldn’t have been better.
We couldn’t have asked for more on the day and the lead up to our day. Sally was such a pleasure to deal with and so efficient, as were any other staff members we dealt with. The food and service was top quality. We were made feel so special and were looked after so well by everyone.It’s an amazing place for a wedding. I don’t see why couples would want to go anywhere else. Thanks so much again for everything!!!
Amy & Terry
Your wedding day is one of the biggest days in your life. And what better venue to have it on than the Loughrea Hotel and Spa. Everything and everyone the whole experience was fabulous. Such a great venue with such great people.
From day one we knew it had to be there from venue to food to amazing staff it was wonderful. The wedding coordinator Sally was fantastic and her team outstanding. We look forward to go back there for future event. And we would definitely recommended the hotel and give it 5*.
Tamsen & Matt
Dear Sally and all the Lough Rea team,
We were absolutely blown away by everything on our wedding day in June and the build up to it was made so much easier with your support. The support was honestly above and beyond anything I expected, I really felt you were there for whatever we needed and nothing was too much.
I’m not sure where to start with our wedding day, everything was perfect. From the wonderful customer service delivered by your staff, to the delicious food from the chefs, the thoughtful and tasteful room decor, the fantastic attention to detail, to the generous round of drinks from the owner and the care and attention given to our guests at all times.
Matt and I only remember our special day as being perfect and that is so much down to Sally and all of the staff in the hotel.
We couldn’t recommend them enough!
Colette & Dónal
We had our wedding reception at the Lough Rea Hotel & Spa and we are so glad we did – it exceeded all expectations we had for our special day. Sally and the team couldn’t have been more helpful. They gave us such good advice and recommendations and were always just an email away if we needed anything. The hotel is spotlessly clean, the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and we were blown away by the size and comfort of the bridal suite. The food on the day was exceptional and we have received so many compliments from our guests on our choice of venue – from the quality of the meal to the 5-star service they received from each member of staff. We honestly could not recommend this hotel enough as the ideal wedding venue. The hotel also went above and beyond to ensure they had a suitable wheelchair accessible bedroom available for the mother of the groom on the night of the wedding and when 2 of our guests had to put their babies to bed mid-meal Ruth arranged to have the rest of their meal sent up to their room. For us, this was exceptional customer service which didn’t go unnoticed. Finally, a special thank you must go to Sally, Ruth and Martin – in the weeks leading up to the wedding and since the wedding anytime we walk through the doors we always get the warmest of welcomes. Thank you Lough Rea Hotel & Spa for such a positive experience and of course a very memorable wedding day.
Crystal & John
The staff is amazing! Sally took care of everything! I was worried when our wedding coordinator got changed while I was away in America but Sally even called me internationally to make sure I didn’t stress. Martin did an amazing job with making sure all our guests felt at home! Ruth was so kind and Grace was always smiling! I couldn’t praise this staff enough!
My husband and I loved everything about Loughrea. Even three weeks after the wedding we have guests near and far telling us it was one of the best weddings they ever attended. Everything was magical and it was a fairy-tale dream come true! I can’t thank Sally, Martin and all the crew at Loughrea Hotel and Spa enough for doing such an awesome job! You have made our day such a marvellous occasion. Thank you all so much!
Crystal & John Corcoran,
Deirdre & Mark
Excellent hotel for a wedding! Sally the co-ordinator was amazing also, highly recommend!
Emma & Alan
What a venue! From our first day viewing the venue to the day after our wedding. We couldn’t have asked for more. Staff were so accommodating and friendly. Food was to die for and overall service was such fantastic. We had a spiritual Ceremony in the hotel function room and it was amazing. The cocktail reception afterwards was a massive hit and beautifully laid out. The sit down 4 course meal so fantastic and so professionally served. Overall we cannot recommend this hotel enough
Amanda & Keith
The whole experience was brilliant! I can’t compliment everything enough. Sally Brogan was so helpful, kind and lovely to deal with and made us feel at ease. The staff on the day were wonderful, the function room was beautiful. The food was fantastic. Everything ran so smoothly. All in all everything was so professional and friendly, a wonderful atmosphere from the very beginning to end.
Marina & Enda
The professionalism from once we started to plan our wedding until we left the hotel on the Monday after. Everything was so good.
We couldn’t have asked for a better venue for our special day. From start to finish it was the perfect day. From the planners, to the service, the food and the venue it was fantastic. I would highly recommend the Loughrea Hotel and Spa
Maeve & Aidan
We had our wedding there last weekend with the new co-ordinator Sally. From start to finish, we were treated like absolute royalty and both the management and staff could not do enough for us. We received excellent feedback from our wedding guests with regard to accommodation, service and food. We had a party the next evening in the Rooftop Bar and again, Loughrea Hotel did not disappoint with excellent service and delicious food platters. Thank you so much!!!
Diane & David
To Sally and All at the Lough Rea Hotel and Spa, David and I just wanted to thank you for the most wonderful day you gave us from start to finish, we couldn’t have asked for any better.
On the 16th of February, you laid out a fabulous ceremony room followed by a drinks and nibble reception for our joining guests, then into a stunning function room where we had a most fabulous 4-course menu.
The staff are so nice and friendly and entertained my 3 young children who had their parts in the wedding. A lot of our guests had travelled from England so they stayed over and all commented on the great service and welcome they received from accommodation staff.
I also have to thank Debbie the hotel hairdresser as she did an amazing job on mine and the wedding party’s hair and the spa did my mother’s make up which was stunning. Thank you so much again and wish you all the best for the future of a fabulous Hotel.
Kind regards Diane and David Maher
