I had my wedding in the Waterside on 01st October. Myself and my husband couldn't have been happier with the hotel and their staff. They were only short of turning themselves inside out in order to make sure we had everything we wanted on our day. The wedding co-ordinator Jessica is amazing, Paul, Stephen and Milena are equally amazing and...

I booked this for my last night in Ireland, intending to have a quiet (no pub) evening. The staff was lovely. My room was big and beautiful and had its own balcony looking out onto the sea. Just hearing the waves through the night was blissful, but I have to say I thought twice about leaving the sliding door open...

Arrived around 3 in the afternoon for check in. My mother and I wanted to take the rental car back that night so that we wouldn't have to...

Really lovely venue for a wedding. Check in was friendly and welcoming. All the staff that we met were excellent. The room overlooked the sea , it's such a pity we only had the one night to enjoy it. The room was a bit small as was the shower cubicle but the room was spotless and the view made up...

I attended a wedding at the hotel yesterday. The venue is beautiful and room was grand but my experience was very much let down when we sat for our meal. As I ate my bowl of soup I felt something shape in my mouth. I knew it was not a bit of vegetable due to how hard and sharp it...
