Wedding Testimonials

Real Weddings at Hotel Meyrick



Our Civil Ceremony and Wedding celebration was the most fantastic day, made all the more special by the amazing ballroom and fantastic staff at the Hotel Meyrick.



Paula and Margaret made planning the ceremony and wedding so easy and panic free, gently reminding us what needed to be done by what date.

The food was fab, nothing was a problem and we couldn't have asked for more on the day. 

I would highly recommend Hotel Meyrick to anybody getting married. Thanks again

Barbara & Brendan [December 2016]


We are so happy with the care and attention to detail that was given from the Meyrick for our wedding day. 

From start to finish we have felt really looked after and listened to in every little thing we wanted.  The level of care and attention to detail is far beyond anything we have experienced before. 

The service on the day was excellent and the food stood up to the quality of the tasting.  The extra care given to help us with our daughter Hazel took so much pressure off us also and we thank you for that too. 

Overall a real pleasure to deal with you and blown away with everything you did for us. 

Thank you. 

Fiona & Patrick [ March 2017 ]

A big thank you to everyone involved in our wedding day and in the lead up. We were thrilled from start to finish. All of our guests were delighted with the reception and they are all seasoned wedding goers!

The service, food and the staff were all brilliant. It is a testament to management that your staff are so attentive and happy (big shout out to Steven in the bar who looked after us all weekend). It could not be faulted.

You really looked after everything and every little detail.

Alanna & Brian Murphy [ February 2017 ]

My new husband and I got married in the Hotel Meyrick in February of 2017, and we could not have been more happy.
Neither of us had ever been to an event there, but from the moment we dropped by to see the facilities, the welcome was fantastic! Paula, showed us around the beautiful, old-world ballroom and the fabulous bar and lobby area. The hotel is so inherently elegant that we did not have to provide anything extra to get beautiful photos taken.
Margaret, talked us every step of the wedding so that we felt completely relaxed and in control. The Head Chef met with us not once but twice in order to provide a perfect tasting experience so that we would be entirely happy with the wedding meal- which he accommodated to be Vegan on my behalf, with no compromise on flavor.
On the week leading up to the wedding, the staff were even more helpful, hosting our family and friends who were staying, setting up gift baskets, hampers, and all other accoutrement we had provided with patience and great attention to detail.
The managers, Nessa and Patrick were very efficient and kind, and each member of staff; from Jimmy, to the waiters, servers, bar keepers, and housekeepers in the hotel were splendid.
Everyone was kind, courteous, professional, and added to the sense of celebration and excitement of the wedding.
From the first day, my husband and myself never looked at, or even considered another venue.
The Hotel Meyrick rose to the occasion, and I wouldn’t have changed a single thing.
The only regret I have is that I can’t get married in The Meyrick every year!

Emily & Gil Siu [ February 2017]

Hotel Meyrick is the perfect venue for a wedding and we cannot recommend it highly enough! Our wedding day was the best day of our lives.

We choose to have our wedding at Christmas as it is our favourite time of the year.Hotel Meyrick was truly magical from the moment you walked through the doors with a glowing fire to your right and floor to ceiling Christmas trees and not to forget the Gingerbread House display. The ballroom was beautifully set up, our guests were in awe of the decoration and the ambiance. 

We would like to thank Paula and Margaret and all the staff at Hotel Meyrick for such an amazing experience. I can honestly say from the moment we meet Paula and Margaret they were nothing but superb. Not only were they patient, kind and friendly they were so organised, detail-oriented and professional.

The food and service we received were first class. The positive feedback we have had from all our guest's has been phenomenal.This was a very important factor for us as we were catering for a Galway/Cork wedding! We were thrilled with every aspect from canapes, dinner reception and afters. We are still receiving compliments from our guests.

If you are looking for a wedding venue look no further than Hotel Meyrick. It is not just a typical "wedding venue" it is an experience you will never forget.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for a day we will remember forever.

Siobhán & Rory Murphy [December 2016]

If you’re thinking about it....DO IT!! Book this venue!

We had our Christmas wedding here last December and can honestly say we could not be happier...

From The Food, to the atmosphere to the venue... everything was perfect! 

From the moment we met Paula we knew everything was in safe hands and I can honestly say Paula and Margaret organised the whole wedding without any stress. Every effort, big and small, in anticipation of 27th December was appreciated so much.

We had a day that we dreamed of with the help of your guidance and suggestions.A huge thank you from both of us to you all.

Emma & Shane [December 2016]

Paula and Margaret,

Myself and Aidan are so grateful for all you have done to make our Wedding Day the most perfect day.

From day one our experience with Hotel Meyrick has been 5 star. Thank you both for being true professionals at every point. You both made the day feel like a breeze.

The food was truly fabulous, the service second to none.. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was.

You made me feel like a princess ladies and I am so thankful for all your help and kindness!

Thank you

Ciara and Aidan [December 2016]

A sincere thank you to all the staff at the Meyrick for making our wedding day absolutely perfect.

Planning our wedding was made so easy and stress-free when we were in such capable hands.

Paula and Margaret (and all the staff) were incredibly warm and welcoming and surpassed our expectations with their attention to detail and professionalism.

The ballroom was a perfect venue for our Christmas wedding. Our guests had a fantastic experience and everyone loved the food.

We are so happy with how the day turned out and would recommend the Meyrick to anybody.

Crona and Joe [December 2016]

We had our wedding here back in December and couldn't have asked for a better venue. Everyone loved the hotel and raved about the food and the attentiveness of the staff from start to finish.

A big thank you to Margaret & Paula and all the staff who were there from day one all the way through helping us organise our magical day. No request went unanswered!

We have so many gorgeous memories from this hotel, we will back again soon for a visit

Sarah & David [ December 2016]

Thanks to all the team at The Meyrick Hotel for taking such good care of us on our wedding day, especially to Paula who showed immense professionalism from the outset and was incredibly helpful, warm and diligent with all of the preparations leading up to our wedding. We had an amazing day.
Meadhbh and Philip [ August 2016]

Paula, Margaret and all the staff at the Hotel Meyrick,

I genuinely don't know how to thank you all enough for giving us and our guests the most perfect wedding venue and experience on our wedding weekend.  

We had the most wonderful time, everything was so special and we felt so looked after from the moment we walked into the wedding fair last January until we parted on the Sunday.

Paula and Margaret, your constant pleasant humours and can-do attitudes made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable for us.  

We can't wait to visit you at the Meyrick again and again, and bring our families there again too!

A moment that summed up the weekend for me;  as I walked back into the hotel on Saturday, the day after our wedding and saw Margaret standing at the front door, ready and waiting to greet another bride and go through the whole thing again.... It genuinely hadn't occurred to me up until that moment that there were other brides and grooms emailing and contacting you about their weddings....

You absolutely made us feel like we were the only couple that you had to look after and the hotel really did give us undivided attention!

We can't thank you all enough, our wedding weekend is an experience we will never forget, and that is largely down to the outstanding service and attention to detail at the Hotel Meyrick.

Denise and Darryl Ramsay [October 2016 ]

We just wanted to send you both a quick note to say thank you so much for everything in the lead up to and on our wedding day.  We both had such fun planning the day and you both were a pleasure to deal with. Our Wedding Day was so special to us and for that we will be forever grateful to you. We cannot recommend you and the Meyrick Hotel highly enough. Everything was just Perfect ! Our sincerest Thanks.

Aisling & Padraig [September 2016]

"The staff of the Meyrick were brilliant from start to finish. Paula, Margaret and the rest of the team were on hand to answer any questions we had and were always ready to make our life easier. Travelling from outside Galway made logistics slightly more complicated and the hotel were more than willing to go above and beyond to help us. We got a great package and everything turned out better than we could have hoped for. The day ran unbelievably smoothly and we can't thank the hotel enough for making our day so memorable and we can't wait to go back for a visit."

 Caoimhe & Ed [August 2016]

"I just wanted to say what a fantastic wedding day we had at the Meyrick. Thank you so much for all your hard work in organising our wedding day. Everything went so well, our guests had a great time at the hotel and couldn’t stop complementing the great service and that the staff were so friendly and helpful. We are back at work today and so sad its all over! We are looking forward to our honeymoon in November though. We just wanted to say thanks again for everything and we couldn’t recommend the Meyrick highly enough, everything was just perfect !!!"

Siobhan & Frank [August 2016]

We just want to say a massive thank you for helping us plan our Wedding day. You were all truly amazing and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us prepare for the big day.  Planning a wedding from abroad can be very stressful and we can honestly say that without your constant help and support we would have been overwhelmed. Your team at The Meyrick were so supportive and made the planning experience stress free.  On the day the hotel looked fabulous and the staff were outstanding as usual. From the moment we got out of the car to the time of our departure you all made us feel so special and we can't thank you all enough. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and our guests felt at home. The day we took the wedding tour of the hotel we knew it was for us, it was 100% the right choice. Thanks for everything and we look forward to popping back for dinner the next time were home.

Cilla & Stephen [June 2016]

We would like to thank both Paula and Margaret along with all the staff for an amazing day. The level of service we received was second to none and even a number of our guests on the day specifically complemented each and every one of you. We organised our wedding from oversees and after speaking to a number of top hotels, The Meyrick Hotel stood out from everyone, simply by the professionalism and willingness to help us. We were not just another customer. This, and the hotel itself made our decision easy.

On the day, we can honestly say from the arrival and departure of our guests the hotel was nothing short of a 5-star. People are still complimenting us on the day, especially the food and flow of service. Every detail and request we made (even those made on the day itself!) were met with ease and the service was to perfection.

We are both so glad we chose The Meyrick Hotel for our day. It really was perfect!

Louise & Paul [July 2016]

"I just wanted to finally drop you a line to say thank you so much for everything you did in the run up to our wedding this summer.From the very first time we viewed the hotel we were treated so well and nothing was too much trouble.No matter how many times we came in to see the ballroom or how many questions we asked there was never an issue with making time for us.Walking in Eyre Square has a whole new meaning for us now and we pop into the hotel for lunch any chance we get!We had a brilliant day and appreciate all the care you and all the staff gave to us and our guests."

Anne & Brian  [ July 2016]

"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."

Louise & Cyril [January 2016]

"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.

Martha & Fergus [December 2015]

"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”

Cathriona & Art Maguire [November 2015]

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.

Eimear and Seamus Coppinger [ August 2015 ]

"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!"

Clare & Lorcan [March 2015]

"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."

Sarah & John [March 2013]
