"We had a short engagement (4 months to be precise), so I thought that our plans would be a bit scattered. From the moment we decided to have our wedding at The Meyrick (you had us at hello by the way) we couldn't have been more hassle free. The lead up you our big day was co-ordinated so well by Siobhan and Paula, and all our accommodation queries were handled very efficiently by Orla. The day itself was perfect. I couldn't believe how well it went from start to finish. The food was amazing (canapés, dinner and evening buffet - thanks Barry). The staff were just fantastic, they were constantly present to help us without being intrusive. All our guests commented on how friendly everyone was. The transition with the tables between eating and dancing was seamless - I barely noticed. The residents bar afterwards was great craic. I stayed 3 days in total and excuse me for being a princess - but you all made me feel like a bride for 72 hours (which was really nice). The bridal suite was just beautiful. A huge thank you to all of you for making our day so relaxed and enjoyable. "

“We had an absolutely fantastic wedding in Hotel Meyrick, we really felt everything was perfect on the day. From the day we booked the venue we were confident that Hotel Meyrick was the right choice, but on the day you exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived for the drinks reception, through the meal and for the rest of the evening, the service level and attention to detail from the staff was top class. Everyone, and I mean everyone, was commenting on how beautiful the room looked, considering how gloomy it was outside, how delicious the meal was and how efficient the staff were. A big thank you to all the team for helping create such a great wedding day. Your professionalism and customer service is to be highly commended. A special thanks to you Siobhan for all the help and advise you offered us throughout the planning. After our wedding experience, we really couldn’t recommend Hotel Meyrick highly enough, we felt you really went that extra step. Many thanks again Ruth & Tim.” June 12
“They say that your wedding day should be very special and memorable occasion and that wasa reality for both Lin and I. The Meyrick Hotel will always be associated with class and elegance in our minds for the way our special day was hosted. Galway people still say ours was a great wedding and that’s lovely to hear but our American visitors say it was the best wedding they were ever at! All this is testament to the people that attended but in no small part to the professionalism of the Meyrick Hotel and the attention to detail to the food that was served, to the cleanliness of the hotel and not least to the elegance of the building and a staff that attended our every need with friendly smile”
Bredan & Lin
We recently had our wedding reception at the Hotel Meyrick. We chose the venue due to location and the hotel’s uniqueness. Little touches impressed us when booking the Hotel such as the helpful staff, the ambiance & décor.
We had a great day, the food was fantastically prepared by the Head Chef Sean and his team, the room was laid out exactly as we wanted it & the mirrors & lights made the room look spectacular. Siobhan, Cian & their team did a fantastic job & nothing was too much trouble, from helping us in the build up to attending to our guests on the day.
We were very fortunate that everything went better than planned from our point of view, during our time at the Hotel there was no problems & our guests had a great time. The only complaint was that we couldn’t do it all over again.
We feel very welcome at the Hotel anytime we go in for a drink or a cup of tea before & since the wedding, it is as if we are part of the Meyrick family almost.

We and our guests were so happy with the brilliant choice of having Hotel Meyrick as our wedding venue in the heart of Galway City. Standing on the steps looking right out on to Eyre Square, the hotels Victorian façade and plush red carpet, as we waited to entergave us a feeling of old time movie stars, with people trying to see what was going on with a great atmosphere on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The ballroom was like something imagined from a more regal era and no other venue has matched it for style and elegance in weddings we’ve attended as guests before or since.In our opinion Hotel Meyrick is unrivalled as a wedding venue in Galway city. The impeccable service, high quality accommodation; especially in the suites, and delicious food ensured all of our guests enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The management and staff at the hotel made it very easy for us to choose the Hotel Meyrick in the first place and provided a remarkably stress free atmosphere, in the run up and on the day itself. We would like to extend a very big thank you to all the staff for making it such a memorable day. We couldn't recommend Hotel Meyrick highly enough as a wedding venue. Emer & Owen May 5th 12
We chose to have our wedding in the Hotel Meyrick because of its timeles elegance, its rich history and its central location. But what impressed us most on the day of our wedding was the highly professional and approachable staff team who somehow managed to surpass all of our expectation with their incredible attention to detail. Many of our guests continue to compliment the food which was of a high quality, and the kitchen made sure that all of the various dietary requirements were met without any fuss. Our guests were just blown away by the ballroom when they went in, the chandeliers, high ceilings and sparkling candelabras added an elegance to the event. We were particularly impressed with Siobhan Melia who pulled everything together on the day. Being able to leave the managing of the reception to someome that competent was a great relief, and ultimately allowed us to really enjoy the day. All in all, both ourselves and our guests had a wonderful experience.
Ruth & Sean - June 2012
Siobhan. First of all, I would love to thank you for your responsiveness, attention to detail, and reliability. You have been a pleasure to work with.You and your team at the Meyrick were nothing but professional, courteous, helpful, and always prepared! Any small problems that occured were responded to efficiently and perfectly (although I honestly can't remember any at all!). We had some demanding guests, but you handled every situation perfectly, and with never a complaint.
The food was excellent, the room was beautiful, I loved our champagne reception, the rooms at the hotel are amazing, and, again, the staff were top-class. I am thrilled with how smoothly everything went and how well we were treated!
I LOVED that you managed to get us the chocolate fountain, as well. It is details like that don't go unnoticed.
We were so appreciative of everything you did to make our day perfect.
Kathryn and James [June 2012]
I wanted to say thank you again to you and the staff at the Hotel Meyrick for celebrating this special day with us. I could not have imagined a more perfect day. Julie looked stunning, Galway Cathedral was beautiful, the weather was incredible, the Hotel Meyrick hosted a fabulous reception, and all of our guests had a phenomenal time. We are still receiving compliments to this day about our wedding from our friends and family here in the United States. Words cannot express how much I appreciate all of your planning and hard work throughout the year. Every wedding detail was covered and coordinated to perfection. The photographer, Videographer, and baker were impeccable, and I will vividly remember all those individuals and their great personalities. The warmth and hospitality shown to us by everyone will always stick out in my
mind. At your request, I have attached some photos of us celebrating at the Hotel Meyrick. We are truly blessed to have celebrated such a meaningful event in a beautiful part of the world with wonderful people. Thank you again to everyone at the Hotel Meyrick for an exceptional experience. God Bless,Julie and Peter Dobleman. Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.A.-2012

'From the moment we walked into the Hotel Meyrick during a wedding fair we knew this is where we wanted to celebrate our marriage. The fuction room is breathtaking and it is a very romantic room. We cannot actually express how happy we were with the staff and service of the hotel. Not only is the hotel and function room absolutley stunning but the bedrooms are gorgeous. Everything was fantastic from start to finish, they were extremely helpful and the food was amazing. Everyone we have spoken with have commented on the hotel and the food and said it could not have been better. We had a beautiful day at the Meyrick and wish we could do it all again - it was perfect!

'We cannot say enough positive things about The Meyrick and its wonderful staff. In our eyes no other venue in Galway comes close. The ballroom is simply stunning and has a romantic feel that you just don't get in modern hotel function rooms. They handled every detail of our day with the utmost care and professionalism, nothing was too much trouble. In fact every staff member we came across was a pleasure to deal with. If your looking for value for money, delicious food, friendly staff and a venue full of style and character look no further than The Meyrick.
' Catherine & Trevor - August 2010
'We made an immediate decision to hold our wedding in the Hotel Meyrick on seeing the reception room. The high quality and style of this room far exceeded every other potential wedding venue we visited before the Meyrick. We found the hotel staff to be very professional and helpful. In particular, the wedding coordinator was extremely efficient and competent. All of our dealings with her in planning the wedding assured us that we would have nothing to worry about on the day. Her attention to detail was excellent - all of our requests for the day no matter how small (choice of background music during the meal) or big (quality and presentation of the meal) were met. Thanks to our confidence in the hotel's staff, we were able to really relax and enjoy our day. All of our guests were full of compliments about the day, they all commented that the reception room was very sophisticated and tastefully decorated. They were also very impressed by the food on offer, and pleasantly surprised that such a standard could be reached for a large number of guests. We would both highly recommend the Hotel Meyrick as a wedding venue.' Martina & Paul, July 2010

In our opinion Hotel Meyrick is unrivalled as a wedding venue in Galway city. The positive reaction of all our guests to the hotel confirmed what made us choose Hotel Meyrick for our wedding - friendly personal service, quality accomodation and delicious food. Management and staff at the hotel made organising our big day very straightforward and stress free, which was fantastic as we were organising our wedding from Dublin. A very big thank you to all the staff for making it such a memorable day. We couldn't recommend Hotel Meyrick highly enough!' Marie & Brian, May 2010
'After visiting other wedding venues in and around Galway the decision to choose the Meyrick was easily made, and certainly proved to be the correct one for our wedding weekend. The weekend was perfect in every way from the beautiful ballroom to the impeccable service delivered by the staff. They took care of every detail, and not even an Icelandic ash cloud changing plans up to the last minute phased them. Feedback from all of guests, was resoundingly positive. Many travelled from overseas to spend the whole weekend at The Meyrick commenting on the beautiful bedrooms, quality of the restaurant and convenient location of the hotel for exploring the city. All in all we would highly recommend The Meyrick for your wedding.' Ben and Carol - April 2010
'From start to finish our wedding day at the Meyrick Hotel went without a hitch. Maria and her bridal party had many requirements on the morning of the wedding while getting ready. Every need was tended to with a smile. After the ceremony the General Manager and a member of staff greeted us at the front door with a glass of champagne each. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the lobby where the guests were enjoying champagne and punch. The waiters and the waitresses dressed in their crisp white uniforms kept all the glasses well topped up. The manager gave us a sneak preview of the reception room. We were very impressed. We knew the room would look well but it was better than expected. When it came to the meal the army of banqueting staff put on an outstanding performance. Prior to the wedding day we had notified the hotel that some of our guests had special dietary needs. This was not forgotten and all guests requirements were met. After the wedding our guests continuously commented on how well they were treated while staying at the hotel. This is a testament to the staff at the Meyrick. Thank you.' Keith & Maria - March 2010
'Rafa and I would like to note that we had a very good experience with the Meyrick on our wedding day. The organisational process was really well done, as the manager was so confident and organised I felt I could relax and work on the other details knowing that the venue was in good hands! I especially appreciated the effort he went to source the champagne saucers- I loved them!' Niamh & Rafa - January 2010
'The reason that Margaret & I chose the Hotel Meyrick for our wedding venue was owing to the history and character of the building and its prominent location in Galway City. The hotel interiors are particularly well finished. The function room is elegant and has special character. the food in the hotel was exceptional and our guests commented that the food grealy exceeded their expectations when compared to 'normal' banqueting food in other venues, indeed, the food standard is of particular merit expecially for the canapes and evening food - the quality of presentation was excellent.' Dwayne & Margaret - October 2009
The service, ambiance and atmosphere in the Meyrick played a huge and memorable part of our wedding day and the Hotel Meyrick team made sure that everything ran perfectly on the day. Karen & Kenny, January 2009
