I got married in the Abbey at Glenlo at the end of October 2010 and have to say it was the experience of a lifetime. From the first time I met Eimear in August 2010 to the actuall ceremony, everything went like clockwork. She organised everything, set up the Abbey beautifully, looked after me from start to finish. She was always quietly there in the background if anything was needed. Thanks Eimear!
We dined in the Pullman restaurant and the service there was also second to none...so personal and friendly. Food was lovely and the ambience was great. Even though we didnt fill the entire carriage, they booked the whole carriage for our group which I really appreciated.
I cant say thank you enough to the staff for making it such a special time for me any my husband and family. One guy even helped me to pack up the car the next morning with all my bits and bobs!
As for the breakfasts, they were SO good. (We went to Ashford Castle for 2 nights afterward and altho their breakfasts were also good, they werent a patch on the Glenlo breakfast which was freshly cooked. Ashford's fry was pre prepared and then it was extra for anything other than a fry up e.g. omelette, pancakes, egg benedict etc
A lovely lovely place for a civil wedding - so special to thanks to all in Glenlo!
