    We recently had our wedding in the Westgrove Hotel. Before choosing our venue we looked at various hotels, sent emails to wedding coordinators, some not replying which was very surprising and some thankfully booked for our date which led us to The Westgrove Hotel – Now officially “Our Happy Place”. We met with Lorna the wedding Coordinator, we were already married but were renewing our wedding vows after 20 years so we decided to have wedding number 2 and it so did not disappoint. The minute we met Lorna, her manner and not to mention professionalism was second to none. This was very important for me especially as in my line of work professionalism is everything so my standards can be quite high. Lorna did not disappoint for one second. She brought us on our special journey and every part of it up until and on the day was just magic. The Westgrove and their fantastic staff across the facility are just amazing. Nothing is too much for any of them. The wedding package is fantastic value and every detail is covered within it. The only thing we added outside of the package was the videographer. All the vendors are so professional too which is really reassuring. I can’t wait to renew my vows in another 20 years again and I’ll be heading straight to the Westgrove for wedding number 3.

    • Thank you so much Jenny & Gordon for your lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure to host your big day with us here at The Westgrove Hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed all our chats, coffees and meet ups and to see it all come together so beautifully on the day was magic! I hope you will visit us soon again. Warmest regards, Lorna

  • Karen & Stephen

    We booked our wedding 2 years ago and what a fantastic time that has been. Thank you to Lorna for going through so much detail and emailing as soon as she could when I had questions, Lydia, Lorna and Bonnie have such an amazing team behind them as well. We couldn’t fault anything on the day, it all went off without as much as a flower out of place. There was always someone close by if we needed anything, the hotel was our first one we viewed and we kept going back to it. When viewing other hotels we noticed scratch marks on paintwork or furniture was a bit dated but here everything was perfect and my mam always says if it’s too good to be true it is but not here. Honestly we were in love with absolutely everything, the food was amazing and portions were perfect lots for everyone. The staff were so friendly towards the children too and so welcoming, the rooms were spotless too. We just felt so comfortable and at home, a lot of people I talk to have been telling me that they’ve either been to a wedding here too or are going to be going to a wedding here. We will forever recommend the Westgrove and thank you to each and everyone of the people working here from the wedding team, waiting staff, cleaning staff to the reception staff. You all made our day an amazing experience we will forever hold dear to our hearts. Thank you again to everyone. Karen & Stephen 11 June 2023

    • Hi Karen and Stephen
      Thank you both so much for your fabulous review. It was our pleasure to host your big day. I remember so well all of our chats leading up to the big day and it’s so hard to believe when it comes around that the big day is here! To hear that you have enjoyed it so much and all of your guests did too is amazing. We always aim to exceed your expectations on the big day and I am thrilled to hear that this was the case! Thank you so much for trusting us with one of the most amazing events of your life and I can’t wait to see you back for your 1st Year Wedding Anniversary stay over. Till then, warmest regards from myself and all the team. Lots of Love, Lorna x

    Lorna is a wonderful professional to deal with. Nothing is ever a problem and as a Wedding professional myself, Lorna has always managed to stay in contact with me to discuss what ceremonies are coming up for us both and how we can manage to make everything go smoothly for the couple. Every couple I have spoken to past, and present has only spoken words of heartfelt gratitude to Lorna, they cannot speak highly enough and even the couples I have recommended Lorna to, have booked the Westgrove Hotel for their own wedding. They love how Lorna makes everything so easy for the couple and takes the stress out of the wedding planning. To say Lorna goes above and beyond would be an understatement. She bends over backwards for every couples and checks every little detail to make sure everything goes accordingly with no slip ups on the day. What I love about Lorna is she takes the time to get to know you and your family and every time you are in Lorna’s company in the Westgrove Hotel, it’s like meeting her for the very first time. Lorna has a smile that is very heartfelt and welcoming. As a Wedding celebrant I love the rapport I built up with Lorna and I wish I could have the same relationship with other wedding co-ordinators in other hotels. Mark Lovett – Lovett Ceremonies

    • Thank you so much for your lovely words Mark. As a valued supplier in the wedding industry, your words mean so much. We always love when you are solemnizing a wedding here at The Westgrove Hotel. It’s always special, relaxed, fun and respectful. Thank you again, Warm regards, Lorna

  • Naomi and Stephen

    I cannot recommend the Westgrove highly enough from the moment we walked in to the hotel a year before myself and Stephen felt so at ease. Lorna was inviting, honest, funny and so professional we just knew there and then The Westgrove was for us!
    I didn’t once worry not even on my wedding day Lorna and the team had everything handled. Even Lorna doing last minute dress alterations in the hall way and done without hesitation. They all went above and beyond for our wedding… The food was amazing the dessert to die for and the staff in the banqueting suite absolutely amazing they had everything timed so well and it made the experience even better. A million thank yous wouldn’t be enough for what The Westgrove Hotel created for us. Naomi & Stephen 3rd of September

    • Hi Naomi and Stephen
      Thank you both so much for your lovely review. It is so lovely to hear that you didn’t have a worry in the world on your big day, that’s exactly how it should be. It was an absolute pleasure working alongside you and planning your wedding. I miss our chats already! Looking forward to seeing you both for the anniversary stay and dinner. Warmest wishes, Lorna

  • Jenny & Trevor

    What can I say only if you are looking for a fabulous venue then look no further. The Westgrove Hotel are fantastic, so helpful when planning your big day I went in for out 1st meeting with the wedding planner lorna with a vision of what I wanted and she sat and listened took it all in and from there it just got better and better. I had a few different things I wanted on the day screens for video couple of entertainers etc so time was a big thing so one didn’t delay the other. Lorna sat we us and advised us what would work best and I have to say it all ran like clock work. I have to say a massive thank you to the amazing chef John, when I say he was put to the test its an under statement. I have allergies but not a very common one which meant any food for me had to be done from scratch to leave out the ingredients i couldn’t have along with other family members that had different allergies too. I sent a list of all the stuff I couldn’t have to them and on the day of our food tasting I was blown away with all the hard work and effort that he had put in so I could sit and eat the same foods as the rest of my family without having to worry. The grounds as amazing for photos and the staircase is show stopping. The staff are wonderful from the time you walk in to the time you leave your made feel like your the only one there. I could go on for ever about this venue and all the staff it’s been so amazing and the most hassle free planning I have ever done and its all down to the professionalism and knowledge that the staff have at The Westgrove. Can’t thank them enough. Jenny & Trevor

    • Thank you so much Jenny and Trevor. I always love sitting with couples and hearing from them about their plans and wishes for the big day. It’s an honour to plan such a momentous event in a couple’s life and to be part of it on the day is just magical! Thank you again for sharing your lovely review Jenny and Trevor, do keep in touch. Warm regards, Lorna

  • Johnny & Brenda Ward

    As soon as myself and Brenda met Lorna Mc Keon we knew we had found our perfect wedding planner! This incredible woman is so warm, kind and bends over backwards to make sure you feel unique and special in the build up to the big day. What makes Lorna stand out amongst the rest is that “Yes” is always the answer and she will always go to great lengths to accommodate exactly what you request in the most professional way. Lorna takes away any stress or concerns you may have towards the big day by coming up with super and faultless ideas that will always make you leave feeling super excited about what you were worried about in the first place! Not only is Lorna second to none but she has also become a very close friend in the organisation of our wedding. We really could not feel more special! Johnny & Brenda 08 July 23

    • Thank you so much Johnny and Brenda for your beautiful review, that means the world to us (and me!). You had the most amazing day and I absolutely loved being a part of it. Seeing all the smiling faces on your guests throughout the day was just brilliant! The entertainment, the food, the conversations and the fun that was had was spectacular. Thank you for hosting your big day with us, it was an honour to be part of it. Till we see you at the hotel again, my warmest wishes, Lorna

  • Ellen & Sean

    A couple of weeks removed from the wedding now and we are still buzzed. An amazing day. What can we say about the service other than it was second to none. Lorna is sensational at what she does she’s so attentive and never makes you feel anything other than comfortable and welcome. It was an amazing experience and we couldn’t even make up a complaint! We will now always mention The Westgrove Hotel to anyone who is planning on getting married and anyone who will listen! Thanks again for everything! Ellen & Sean, May 2023

    • Thank you so much Ellen and Sean for your fabulous review! I had such a great time planning your big day. Having the outdoor ceremony on the Roof Terrace was just amazing. Seeing all of your guests smiling and enjoying themselves in the sunshine was just magic! Thank you both so much for choosing The Westgrove Hotel to host your big day and I’m looking forward to seeing you both very soon.
      Warmest wishes

  • Jayne & Ian

    From our perspective we genuinely feel we fell on our feet with The Westgrove and particularly Lorna. When we came to the wedding fair there was such a good atmosphere in the place. It was happy, fun relaxed the band was in full swing the drinks flowing and just not quite what I expected. To be honest I don’t know what I expected because we actually never look at anywhere else, we knew it was the place for us. When it came to the package and what was on offer we couldn’t have got better value. Typically when you buying a package there is a perception of maybe substandard or good for what your getting type thing but I can safely say with out reservation the suppliers The Westgrove use are anything but. From the flowers, to the band to our amazing wedding cake there is not one single thing I could fault. What’s even better is when I was speaking with each supplier on different things, because they know the hotel and Lorna, everything was soooo smooth and easy there was absolutely nothing to worry or stress about.

    What ye offer truly is FANTASTIC. On the night of the wedding the room looked out of this world. I mean I was in awe, it was stunning. Bonnie couldn’t have been more helpful and professional she had everything organised to a fine art as did the lovely lads working the bar that night, no one was left waiting. Our guest couldn’t get over the place and how fabulous it was. Myself and Ian felt so proud. And lastly Lorna (wedding coordinator). I never felt that I got my bridezilla moment because dealing with her was so easy going and hassle free. ???? I couldn’t have worried even if I tried. No matter what I asked or queried she had an answer, a solution or a plan. I’m so grateful that she looked after us the way she did. Lorna is absolutely fantastic at what she does and honestly we just want to thank you her and the whole team so much. I also wanted to mention coming up to the wedding Lydia looked after us for a couple of days when Lorna was away from the desk and what a lovely lovely person she is. Like Lorna she was a breath of fresh air! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Jayne and Ian.

    • Thank you SO much Jayne and Ian for your fabulous review, that means so much to us all here at The Westgrove Hotel. I am genuinely smiling as I read it. I so enjoyed all of our meetings and catch ups and getting to know you both as a couple and your gorgeous family. I miss you popping in so you’ll have to come back for a cuppa some day! Thank you both again for choosing The Westgrove Hotel to host the day of your dreams, you’ve made everlasting memories and we are thrilled to be part of it.
      Warmest wishes,

    The Westgrove Hotel is the perfect Wedding Venue with the most amazing staff!! We recently had our Wedding Reception here and also our Day 2 and we had the most magical Weekend! We were treated like VIP’s for the entire time we were there!

    When we first walked into the Reception to attend the Wedding Fair back in 2021, I turned to Dermot and said “Wow” I was blown away by the beautiful Staircase and instantly fell in love with this Hotel. I knew it was a very special place and needless to say we booked our Wedding Reception with Lorna that day! Lorna the Wedding Coordinator is top class! she is absolutely amazing at her job. Her attention to detail is just unbelievable and I don’t think the word “No” is in her Vocabulary! Lorna always went above and beyond to ensure all our requests were fulfilled. She is such a lovely calm person and has a real gift at keeping the Bride calm and relaxed in the run up to the big day. She is a credit to the Westgrove Hotel they are so lucky to have her! We cannot thank her enough for creating the most stunningly beautiful Wedding Reception for us!! We would also like to thank Lydia Lorna’s right hand lady who I met in in the run up to our big day. Lydia is such a lovely person and like Lorna will go out of her way to ensure your big day is flawless!! Also a big shout out to the rest of Lorna’s Wedding Team for all their hard work behind the scenes and also serving all our guests with the delicious food and Wine.

    Thank you so much to the Chef – The quality and quantity of the food was 5 Stars!!

  • We recently had our wedding in the Westgrove Hotel, to say it is a stunning hotel is an understatement! From the moment we booked our wedding, Lorna and her incredible team of co-ordinators were on hand to guide us through everything. No request was too big or too small for them, they went above and beyond for us and honestly made planning our wedding so enjoyable and stress free. The attention to detail, communication and support from the wedding team is second to none, they all made us feel like the most important couple in the world. We opted for a package with the hotel which I would highly recommend. Not only is it incredible value for money, but having so much included in the package really takes so much of the stress out of planning a wedding. We could really enjoy the build up and the preparations knowing that our wedding was in such good hands. All of our guests had the most amazing time at our wedding, everyone was raving about how delicious the food was, how there were several offers of extra servings and that the wine flowed all evening! We honestly couldn’t have asked for anymore from the hotel. Lorna, Lydia and Bonnie really are a dream team, they are so beautiful both inside and out and will go the extra mile to ensure that your day is absolutely everything you have always hoped and dreamed it would be. Our day was so special. The setting of the hotel, the grand staircase, the roof top terrace, the gardens, they are all exquisite and really have the wow factor. I’m so delighted that we chose the Westgrove Hotel for our wedding, our dreams were turned into reality and it was the best day of our lives. Thank you so much to Lorna, Lydia, Bonnie and all of the staff of the Westgrove who work so tirelessly and are so dedication to their professions. You guys are amazing and a piece of my heart will always belong to this hotel and all the staff.
