Kayleigh and Mike onby
We had our wedding reception in the Ballyroe in September and could not have been happier with it. From the moment we first met Jonathan and all the staff, we were put at ease as nothing we asked for was a problem. They really work with you to make sure that you have everything you want on the day. The food was outstanding and lots of guests mentioned that the very happy with it. We went with the fillet steak option which was great but you couldn't fault any of it we had chicken and fish as other alternatives. The room itself is really nice also as its big enough to cater for a very large crowd (up to 400 I believe) but it doesn't feel empty if you want to change it also. They have a beautiful garden area attached to the function room which means you don't lose your guests who smoke. The bar is also well placed near the dancefloor and service was great. The view from the hotel is very nice, it looks over the woodlands and we were lucky that the sun shone so our guests relaxed outside whilst waiting for our arrival. The bridal suite is also very nice with a lovely Victorian style four poster bed and nice tub. What really makes it special for us, is the customer service they provide, nothing was too much hassle and Jonathan and Mark both ensured that we had everything we wanted. It is very natural to them as they do this all the time but still make you feel like your day is special. We were living in Dubai so we weren't the easiest customers but they were always on hand to provide excellent advice on everything from timings, to menu options, to table plans to standing outside in the cold with us setting off Chinese lanterns. Our guests were also very complimentary of the venue. Overall top value and excellent service. We would highly recommend the Ballyroe as a wedding venue.
