We got married in the hotel in August 2019 and we would like to sincerely thank the Slieve Donard hotel and their wedding team for all that they have done for us in making our wedding day extra special. No matter what we asked of Eugene and John, it was never an issue and completed beyond our

expectations. The grand ball room was beautifully presented and the food was amazing. Many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding meal that they ever had! Due to the precision planning by the wedding team everything ran like clockwork which took any pressure off us to ensure it was the most enjoyable day of our lives. We would honestly recommend the Slieve Donard to any couple that wants to make their wedding day extra special.

up with our wedding Co-ordinator Laura who was fantastic from we 1st meet ,she was so great with helping me book rooms for night before our big day for not only us but family members, also on my big day if I needed her she was there for me and my groom to be, she helped by settling my nerves just before I was about to walk down to my husband to be, I couldn't recommend her enough, I also hear congratulations is in order as Laura has just had a baby so pleased for her, as for Slieve Donard our food on the big day was top notch all our guest told us how beautiful there meals were, the staff on the big day were so helpful with not only us but our wedding guests. I can't wait to go back to the hotel on our 1st wedding anniversary such a beautiful hotel with beautiful surroundings. Thank u for our big day love mr&mrs Roulston

Best Wedding day Ever!
My Husband and I got married and had our Reception in the Chandelier Suite at Slieve Donard Resort and Spa on the 4th July 2019. It was honestly the best day ever. We fell in love with the location the moment we set eyes on it. Having never been to the hotel before we

couldn't believe how breathtakingly beautiful it is and the views are unbelievable!
John and Eugene were our wedding coordinators, we dealt with John for most of the communication from the start then were introduced to Eugene closer to the day and I am a little bit in love with them both. They were so accommodating, treated us like we were the only people to ever get married at the hotel, answered all my queries quickly and put my mind at ease about everything. On the day Eugene was unbelievable, fluffing my dress for the photos, ushering my husband kindly out of the room when he went in too early (after having a few too many drinks lol).
We made a mini holiday out of it with our family and stayed the day before and night after, the restaurants in the hotel and the Percy French are amazing and the spa the day after the wedding was just perfect.
I can't praise the hotel, the wedding, John or Eugene enough. If you are thinking about getting married here, do it!

We both knew roughly what we wanted. We did all the usual sorts of places that were a bit less “expensive” than the Slieve Donard. The thing that made the good impression most of all in the Slieve Donard was John, he sold it very well. The setting at SDH also allows for a lot of scope in photos,

Mournes, Tollymore & hotel grounds. When you break the price down, what you are getting for that price is what you would want from any venue, but doesn’t cost extra, e.g meal choice for guests, slightly different chair décor, etc. You also get a meal tasting night at a reduced rate, for this I recommend staying, because you can sample a lot of different types of wines. We met Eugene that night, who explained the meal choices, the options we had. Both gents are very laid back and easy to talk to and get on with. Fast forward a few months, we then go down to meet Eugene, who would be taking on the master of ceremonies role at our wedding. We just gave him all the details we had for timings on the day. The day before we left all our signage, bits and pieces, favours, picture, and other general wedding bits and pieces down which was to be laid. As promised that was all done, no issues from us on how it was done, we just gave full creative control to the professionals! The day of the wedding, we had a slight issue getting there on time (our fault, not SDH) but we were able to put the time back by 30 mins to allow a moment to breathe and talk to guests, no issues from the hotel. Following the speeches food was served, it was exactly expected. All in all, 100% recommendation from us, if you have questions ask, you’ll get straight answers and reassurances are plentiful, they have a very experienced team at the hotel. Including Roisin on reception who helped us with moving rooms for night two, and Ruiri from concierge who managed to track down the rest of our wedding cake. I can’t think of much more to say, but take my word for it, you won’t be disappointed with the SDH.

wedding on Thu, 6th of June, 2019
From start to finish the Slieve Donard were phenomenal in every way. Eugene & John especially made our wedding as stress free as possible & made us feel super relaxed. Anything we requested Eugene had it sorted in seconds & was always there to help. On the day of the wedding he was like batman,

always standing right there for whatever you needed even for the bridal party & guests. He is a funny, bubbly, legend of man who didn’t just feel like our wedding planner, but a friend. As brides always think they are unorganised, I rang John everyday & as always he was on the ball helping me organise & feel stress free. He was always up for a good laugh. On behalf of Mr & Mrs Bittle we would like to thank them all for everything they have done for us. Super excited to get back next year for our 1st year anniversary!!!!!
