Wedding Testimonials

Real Weddings at Hotel Meyrick

We would like to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day everything we could have dreamed of and more! It was a magical start to the New Year with all our family and friends, one we will never forget! The service and staff were incredible and the whole day was organised and run to perfection. For many guests it was their first time at the Meyrick and we were delighted to hear so many lovely comments about the hotel, service and food

A special thanks to Margaret and Paula for all their support leading up to our wedding day and Margaret you were amazing on the day, making everything seem so effortless! We are extremely grateful to all the staff for making it a day to remember. The Meyrick will always be special to us and we look forward to visiting when we are home in Galway.

"Looking back on our big day we were left with a feeling of complete satisfaction with our wedding experience in Hotel Meyrick - it certainly exceeded all our expectations. Paula and Margaret were an integral part in our decision to choose the venue - their advice and support  with the preparations was reassuring and second to none.

The concierge, staff  and management were so helpful and friendly throughout - they gave a great first impression on the day and ensured that everyone was looked after from start to finish - there was nothing that wasn't in place.

It seems obvious to say that we should have been the centre of attention but Hotel Meyrick really made us feel extra special. The attention to detail was so comforting and allowed us to relax in the company of our guests. Our memories of Christmas will forever be entwined with Hotel Meyrick and the beautiful tree, lights and atmosphere of our special day - we wouldn't change a thing. Our heartfelt thanks to all the staff.

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help from start to finish to make last Friday a really special day for myself and Art, from when we first set foot in the Meyrick last January until last Saturday you both have been so helpful and really made everything so easy for us!

Everybody at the wedding talked about the venue, food and how helpful and friendly all the staff were, some of our family and friends said it was the nicest wedding food they have had!

Thank you so much for everything, Art and I had such a fantastic day and really did not have one worry on the day we knew we were in great hands”

Dear Paula, Fred, Adrian, Joan, Orla and each and every one of the staff in Hotel Meyrick, Sorry for the delay but myself and Tony just wanted to express our sincerest thanks for what we can only describe as the best day of our lives. From the moment we contacted the hotel we were completely looked after and no request was a problem.

We have heard nothing but positive feedback from all our guests, the food was amazing, the ballroom was magical and staff went out of their way to look after everyone, not just the bridal party.

We cannot express our gratitude enough to each and every one of you.Our day was nothing short of amazing and we would do it all again in a heartbeat.

Again, our sincerest thanks. See you all soon,

We are on an absolute high after our big day on Saturday! I knew the hotel hospitality would be excellent but it really was truly outstanding!The whole evening went beautifully and I really want to praise you all for the smooth running of the day and for truly looking after our guests with the greatest care. We had many guests over from London who had never been to the West of Ireland beforeEveryone was extremely well fed and I heard so much compliments about how tasty the meal was and the fact that there was an option for seconds was a huge bonus! Thank you all for your fantastic wedding coordination and for always responding to our queries when we were planning the day! Planning a wedding from London was no bother and you always got back to us as soon as possible. We knew the Hotel Meyrick was always going to be the best location for our wedding. The professional staff and outstanding hospitality really made the day. We cannot thank you enough. It truly was a perfect wedding day for us. We are very much looking forward to future stays at the hotel. Thank you so much for all you have done. Kind Regards and Best Wishes

"Thank you all so much for a most amazing weekend. Niamh and I got married in Hotel Meyrick recently and wish to give special praise to Paula and Siobhan for all their hard work. The entire team in the Meyrick made us, and all our guest, feel special. Everyone had a fun filled weekend. The ballroom is a great venue. The food, drink and service are top class. The entire hotel has a real touch of elegance. And being right in the heart of Galway it is the most convenient place to stay. Niamh and I will most definitely stay next time we are home. Thanks"

Adrian & Niamh [April 2015]

" A massive 'thank you' to both of you in particular for helping to make our wedding day so GREAT! We can honestly say we'd the 'time of our lives', so much fun and we have wonderful memories from the whole experience. This is hugely down to the professional manner that both of you bring to your jobs. In terms of planning and on the day itself, it was such smooth sailing... And Orla was so efficient to deal with in when organising accommodation. The Meyrick was so impressive on the day, which so many of our guests commented on: from the foyer, ballroom and rooms to the meal and staff, which is so lovely to hear! Please extend our appreciation to Seán and his team for an amazing meal - it was as delicious as the tasting, so we were delighted. Jimmy and the wait-staff we also super efficient!"

"My husband and I had our wedding reception in The Hotel Meyrick in November and we would like to say thank you so much for everything you have done for us. Such a beautiful, elegant and romantic hotel .Our wedding weekend was truly amazing, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Siobhan, Paula & staff really pull out all the stops and our chef Sean was just fantastic. He took all of our suggestions on board and our guests raved about his food. The Bridal suite is just beautiful overlooking Eyre Square. Our day was everything that we dreamed of and more. Would highly recommend x"

"Dear Siobhan, Paula, and all the staff that helped us on our special day.Just a quick note to say a million thank you's for our wedding day. We had a blast! You were all so helpful in the run up to the big day, nothing was too much to ask or a challenge, which helped the stress stay away on my behalf! The Hotel looked amazing and everyone raved on about the food. The Bridal suite was fab too! Mike and I really appreciated all the small touches, like allowing Mike and Darragh change in a bedroom on the morning of the wedding, and the next day gathering up all of our stuff efficiently! I just wish we could relive the whole day again"

Niamh & Mike [August 2014]

"Just a quick note to say thanks for all of your help in the preparation for our wedding. We had a brilliant day and the Meyrick was a fantastic venue. Thanks for all of your personal help over the last year, it really made a difference."

Denise & Jonathan [September 2014]

"Amazing Day. We got married on the 25th of May and had our reception in the Hotel Meyrick. We first met Paula the Marketing Manager who explained all our options, she was a pleasure to work with and made the decision to choose the Hotel Meyrick very easy. Siobhan, the Banqueting Manager arranged the tasting for us which was first class. The meal was prepared by the Hotel Chef Barry, who is an talented Chef and a friendly professional person. Siobhan arranged the coordination of the reception, meal, cake,candy stand, etc., she was a joy to work with, she is very professional, friendly and very experienced. She provided advice and guidance on the reception details, things we would never have thought of. Orla the Accomodation Manager was very cooperative, this was very reassuring as we had a lot of guests coming from Ireland and overseas, many staying for the weekend. On the day of the wedding, we were greeted outside the hotel with a red carpet, champagne and strawberries. The Resident Pianist played beautifully throughout the drinks/canapés reception. The wedding reception was a hit with all the guest who commented on the fabulous hotel, the day ran so smoothly, the food very nice, the ballroom was beautifully decorated and the service was excellent. The staff were efficient, friendly, well dressed and polite. The rest of the night went perfectly too. I would highly recommend the hotel for their friendliness, professionalism, efficiency and excellent service to anyone who wants a very special wedding reception. Thank you for a wonderful day"

Siobhan and Cathal [May 2013]

"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."
