We'd both like to thank ye, from the bottom of our hearts, for all the help, patience, amazing service & absolute kindness that ye showed to us from the minute we booked with ye. Hugh is simply amazing. He had both of us at ease from the minute we arrived to the hotel. He is an absolute gentleman & a gem for the Connacht Hotel, & we saw that first in April when we had Saoirse's confirmation lunch there. EVERYONE at the event, complimented your staff, food & how fabulous the room looked. Ye really pulled out all the stops. Really a superb job!"
"My husband and I recently decided to have our party with family and friends in The Connacht Hotel. From the day we went out to view the venue we couldn’t have been happier. The gorgeous Rebecca and Natasha answered my every query (and I had many) without any delay and were always checking in with me to see if I was ok with the plans etc. On the night itself the fabulous Bridget, Meda and team looked after our every whim, they were constantly at our side to cater my every need & ensure we were happy with everything. The food was fantastic and the suite was spacious & fully equipped. We had an amazing night, thanks to the friendly, kind & attentive team at the Hotel."
