Reviews for The Abbey Hotel
"We had our wedding in the Abbey Hotel Roscommon on the 22nd of August 2015. We had such fantastic day from beginning to end and we are so delighted that we chose the venue. It had been a stressful week leading up to the big day that was ahead of us. The entire experience ran smoothly from beginning to end.
She explained everything so clearly, and answered all our queries so efficiently. I would highly recommend anybody who is thinking of a venue for their wedding to get in touch. The meal was just beautiful and the attention to detail blew us away. Everything was designed to perfection. There was nothing left to chance on anything that day, Adrian Grealy the Manager on Duty on the day made sure of that. We have even been invited back next year for a nights stay and dinner for our anniversary. It is a credit to have such a beautiful venue close by with standards as high as they were.
I hope they get all the credits and awards going for this level of customer service. If I were to give the Abbey Hotel Roscommon marks out of ten, I would give them eleven. Thank you so much for an unforgettable experience. See ye all next year, Regards, Mr & Mrs Paul and Marie Byrne xx
We want to thank you for a fantastic wedding day celebration on July 17th, 2015! We live in New York & most of the planning was done over the phone & internet & you all made it very easy for us! We knew the Abbey Hotel was the right choice from the first time we saw the beautiful pictures on your website to talking to Adrian on the phone & how friendly & welcoming he was. The Abbey Hotel has a reputation for keeping everything running smoothly & on time & we were not disappointed! It was raining when we arrived on the day & I was impressed that Adrian was there to welcome us with a huge umbrella in hand to make sure I didn't get my dress or hair wet...very sweet!
The welcome reception was perfect! The reception room looked beautiful...even better than we had imagined! The food was delicious & we loved the personalized plates on the top table-what a nice touch! Everyone was commenting on how great the food was & how fantastic the service was. Thank you for accommodating some of the special requests on food-it was definitely appreciated!! The service was fantastic-couldn't have been better! We had people at the wedding from all over Ireland, England & the United States & we heard nothing but glowing compliments from everyone. Many stayed for a night or 2 at the hotel & were impressed with the service & accommodations overall! Thank you again for a beautiful day-we both said we would not have changed a thing-we were thrilled with everything!
Wedding: 17th Jul 2015 Michelle & Michael Conlon
The Abbey Hotel were absolutely brilliant. I have rated all of the above criteria at 5 stars and that is a very sincerely considered opinion. We had a humanist wedding and the Abbey hotel were so flexible and amenable to our requests. They kindly facilitated our out of the ordinary request to hold the wedding ceremony (200+ guests) in their restaurant, this despite being a first for the hotel, loosing lunch covers and adding a lot of extra work to prepare. I can't but recommend the responsiveness of the wedding coordinator and the professionalism of all the staff both on the day and at all other times. The food was excellent, the value proposition was excellent and was customised to meet our needs.

The Abbey Hotel is a fabulous hotel. It is renowned for it's amazing grounds, fabulous food and friendly, helpful staff. The grounds are fabulous for photographs, from the beautiful gardens with mature trees to the old Abbey Ruins - there is something to suit every taste. You do not have to worry or think about the food once you have chosen your menu, as the food here is always amazing, whether you're at a wedding or eating in the restaurant or bar. The staff are friendly and when it comes to your wedding, there is nothing they will not help you with. We dealt with Adrian and Elaine, and they went above and beyond what we asked for. We were delighted with everything on our day from the bubbles and nibbles on arrival, to the beautiful decor in the room, the food and the accommodation, to breakfast the next morning. For anyone wondering about this hotel or looking for a fabulous venue with great food - I would 100 percent recommend the Abbey Hotel. Elaine Galvin
Both myself and stephen would like to say a massive thank you to the Abbey Hotel and all your staff for giving us the perfect venue on our special day. The service was outstanding from the food (which everyone on the day could not speak highly enough about was just superb) to the rooms to the owners of the hotel and lovely helpful staff. We are so glad we choose to have our wedding in yer hotel was above and beyond fantastic so thank you all very much for helping make our wedding day perfect. Many thanks as always.

"A perfect location for a Dream Midlands Wedding"
We chose the Abbey Hotel for our wedding because of it's excellent reputation, and also because we had a lot of family connections in Longford and Roscommon. The pristine gardens and views of the old Abbey ruins on the nearby grounds were an appealing factor and made for some amazing photos. We had been to many weddings at the venue before and each one had the same thing in common, continuity and complete professionalism from start to finish with a very hands on approach by the Grealy family. It was obvious from our first meeting with Tom & Adrian Grealy that we were in very capable hands. As my fianc√© and I both worked in Galway during the week we had to have regular communication by phone and email. This was a never a problem and any small teething problems or concerns were quickly addressed and dealt with immediately. Tom, the manager worked hard with us in the early stages to find the perfect balance and true to his words we came in well within our budget. Our final menu and wine choices went down well with our guests who were completely blown away by the high standard of presentation at the wedding meal and the impeccable service and attention to detail. It surpassed all our expectations and we highly recommend the Abbey Hotel to any couples who are looking for the perfect setting for their wedding.

"A lifetime of great memories from an amazing weekend,"
We had our Wedding reception in the Abbey just over a year ago. From day one of meeting Adrian & Tom Grealy Jnr they assured us that we would have nothing to worry about on the day - true to their word, timing was meticulous and as a result we truly got the most out of our day. The food we got to choose was decided upon following a food tasting day and it was beyond expectation on the day. Efficient servers ensured hot dinners served to all tables together. We had a very mixed age group of guests and all enjoyed the meal immensely and some were delighted to get to sample both main course choices when there were 2nd helpings! As a lot of our guests travelled to Roscommon for the wedding, they made it a two night stay and all of them were high in their praise of the staff they met at reception, the bar, breakfast saying they were all so friendly and polite. From our first meeting to pick our dates to checking out 2 days after the wedding, we were extremely happy with The Abbey Hotel management and staff. It was our absolute pleasure to bring so many of our friends and family to Roscommon and host them in such a warm, friendly hotel. We look forward to many more reasons to celebrate in The Abbey
"Best wedding weekend at the Abbey"
We had our wedding in the Abbey in March of this year. It's taken until now to speak to family and friends and get a general idea of what everyone else thought of their experience at our wedding and at the Abbey. As a wedding couple who had the best day of our lives, we felt that the overall service on the day was very good. As we arrived later than everyone else it was nice to hear that people were happy to have canapes, sandwiches, teas & coffees and drinks awaiting them as they arrived, especially as it was a rainy day. I have received numerous thank you cards & texts since about the quality of the meal - which was top class. The catering staff & Jacinta the manager on duty were not only attentive for the wedding meal but for the entire 2 days we stayed at the hotel. The bridal suite was the high point for us - such stunning rooms. It was also lovely to have breakfast in bed the morning after the wedding. Given that up to 50 of our guests stayed for the second night of the wedding weekend, the hotel was very accommodating and the bar and catering staff again catered our every need.We would definitely be confident in recommending the Abbey as a wedding venue for any future couples who are considering their options here.
Added by"Fabulous family run hotel with Michellin recommended restaurant" We had a fantastic weekend in The Abbey... We got a great deal which included 2 nights B&B plus evening meal and massage for ‚ā¨420 total for 2. The staff of this family run hotel were very welcoming and from the moment we walked through the door until the moment we left we could not fault the hotel... We were upgraded to a suite and the room was a very generous size. The room was decorated in keeping with the style of the hotel which was really lovely. The bed was exceptionally comfortable & the shower was lovely and strong. The restaurant is Michellin recommended and the meal was superb... I had the duck pate to start and my partner had the scallops & Clonakility black pudding... For main I had the pork belly with apple sauce & scallops-it was absolutely perfect. My partner had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly pink :) The location is only a 10 min walk from Roscommon town where we found a nice restaurant on our second night and two lovely bars... one with an open fire :) We came back to the hotel late last night (about 2.30am!) and had to phone the night porter as the door was locked... This was actually quite quaint... The night porter greeted us with exceptional cheer even at that hour of the morning... I just could not fault the friendliness of the staff

Thank you so much for everything on the day. We had an amazing time, and have been recommending you to everyone.
"A Dream Wedding Setting at the Abbey in Roscommon"
Well here it goes folks, I am going to cut and paste what I have already sent to the Abbey after our wedding there on the 26th of May. Firstly let me just say if you are coming to Roscommon town and you don't stay at the Abbey Hotel, well you are wasting your time. "To say that the afternoon, evening, night and following days was exceptional would be an understatement. I am sure with the obvious professionalism that the hotel and it's entire staff performed on the day, you hear this all the time, but we have been talking about it since. We have also got only the best comments from people on how wonderful the whole event was! I'm not sure if people are just trying to say nice things but several of the comments so far, have been .... "that was the best wedding I have ever been at".
The band, the meal, the accommodation, the service, pre-organisation of our wedding with the Abbey was quite simply flawless and outstanding. In particular we would like to thank the Hotel for their support when we had the "problem" with the church, to us and to Angela especially it made a world of difference. From those who stayed with you again we have had only glowing reports about both the accommodation and the staff. One women had to move rooms for the Sunday night (as she had booked very late) was extremely impressed at how helpful and professional the staff were, please let them know. If there were any regrets it was from a few people who did NOT book to stay with you and regretted their decision afterwards. "It is hotels like the Abbey, people like your good self and the staff of the Abbey that make us proud to say that there are good deals to be had in Ireland and more importantly good service, times and memories to be had". I have no doubt the 150 people that were there on the night are, and will continue to say this to an ever increasing circle of friends and family. It will more than ever reinforce our conviction that we made the very best decision we could ever have made in booking The Abbey Hotel Roscommon for our wedding. May you and the Abbey go from strength to strength.So that's it, it's a really great location, wedding venue, great staff, and worth making a detour to stay at if you are on the way to Galway
Jill & Philip O'Connor
We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding one of the most wonderful and memorable days of our lives. From the moment we met with Paula we knew we were in safe hands, but on the day itself, Paula and all the staff exceeded all on expectations.Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Ciara & Patrick Connellon
"Can we both just say that the Abbey Hotel far outweighed our expectations for the wedding. The food was spectacular and the service was commented on by all our guests as the best that they had seen. You really did cover all the smallest details which were the finishing touches. Many Thanks for everything"
Tara & Peter Chamberson
The Management and Staff at The Abbey were exceptional and couldn't do enough for us. Aisling the wedding co ordinator is so friendly and accommodating, going above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly on the day. The food was amazing and piping hot. The ballroom has been renovated since our wedding and is stunning. I highly recommend The Abbey Hotel as a wedding venue".
Amanda & Prionsias Stephenson
Aishling is very professional and very helpful. Nothing was a problem to her. The hotel was under renovations shortly before our wedding and she assured us everything would be fine and look fabulous on the day and she was right. We wouldn't change a thing. Thanks to Aishling and all the Grealy family for making our day so special".
Seamus & Mary Dolanon
