We got married here on 2nd April 2013 & owe huge thanks to all the staff & management for making our dreams come true... They even got the sun to shine!!! Fidelma, Gareth & Niall were so attentive during the preparation stages with prompt responses to any queries we had & nothing we suggested or requested raised a brow! We had family & friends staying for a few days around the wedding day & everyone was so happy with their spacious rooms, the complimentary upgrades, the fab views of the lake, the friendly reception staff, babysitters etc all getting special mention in the feedback...(See Jeditraining review for one of our guests perspectives!!) A special thanks to the girls on reception Julie & Marie who welcomed some guests who arrived later in the evening just before dinner - you really put them at ease, and the offer of bringing them a drink to the room while they freshened up & got ready was much appreciated!! Also Julie, thanks for all the offers of tea or drinks while I was chatting to guests the day after the wedding in reception, for booking the restaurant, bus etc for our evening plans on Day 2 too!! On the wedding day our guests enjoyed a lovely 'drinks reception' in the bright & airy bar area, looking out on fabulous views of the lake & golf course. Thanks to Niall for taking us down to the lake for some fab wedding pics too! Our wedding meal got so many compliments - great quality beef & fish, tasty starters & soup & of course scrumptious plentiful dessert.... And even the 'seconds' were sampled by a few! The wine was flowing & everyone had a fantastic meal - complimented by sunset over the lake from the stunning glass to ceiling first floor reception room! The dancing & late bar were enjoyed by all.... hassle free hospitality! My husband & some friends enjoyed the stunning golf course & scenery with complimentary pre & post wedding tee-offs & 'playing Glasson' was a great experience enjoyed by young & old! Day 2 was so chilled, after the fab buffet breakfast more refreshments were enjoyed in reception & lunch & drinks were sampled in the bar later in the day! What can we say except 'Thank You'! Also thanks to Tom (the boss) for giving my niece & nephew a little spin in the golf buggy before we left the hotel, a lovely touch! To all the staff at Glasson Country House & Golf Club - we highly recommend you to couples considering this venue for their wedding, go with it, best decision we made! Everything was 100%.. we noticed... our guests noticed & nobody could find a fault! We look forward to seeing you for our one year anniversary, if not before.... Thanks for everything, Ger & Darren McCabe
