We got married in July and chose the Raheen Woods Hotel in Athenry for our Reception venue. From our very first meeting with Frank everything ran so smoothly. The management and staff were so helpful in every possible way.
We had an amazing day and were delighted to be able to take all our Wedding photos in the beautiful grounds of the hotel surrounded by our family and friends. A special Thank You to Frances who was like a personal assistant on the day. We now have beautiful photos because she took a lot of time to stay with us fixing the wedding dress, straightening out necklaces and handbags to make sure our large group photos were just perfect and also for keeping the youngest of our flowergirls, age 3, entertained with promises of chocolate cookies!!
Our meal was fabulous. We chose smoked salmon and vegetable soup for starters with beef and cod for the main. Many of our guests have given us so many compliments since our Wedding Day on the food, the presentation and the service. The filet of beef went down particularly well especially when they were offered seconds!! The professional helpfulness and friendliness of the serving staff was delightful to experience.
The rooms are lovely. Our friends told us they really enjoyed the great value at the Spa and the young ones loved the swimming pool the following day.
The hotel is well signposted from the motorway. Some of our guests travelled down from Dublin and made it down in 2 hours with time to spare. Other guests travelled from Galway city and were home again at the end of the night in 15 minutes.
We would recommend the Raheen Woods Hotel to anyone with out hesitation.
Thank you to Lester, Frank, Frances, Paddy, Mia and the entire staff for your hard work and compliments to the Chef!!
