Kimberly Madden Treanor –Wedding Team Hillgrove Hotel Leisure & Spa
Hello, my name is Kimberly Madden-Treanor, I am the Banqueting Manager and I have worked in the Hillgrove Hotel for 7 years, you could say I am part of the furniture now! I have always worked in Hospitality and have a degree in Hospitality Management from Manchester Metropolitan University. I have been in the industry nearly 20 years (giving my age away lol) working in the UK for 12 years I came back home to Ireland 8 years ago, working in Belfast for a year before I came down to the fabulous Hillgrove Hotel in Monaghan, which I have seen grow and progress amazingly in the time I have worked here. I thoroughly enjoy running wedding, I work very closely with my Bride & Grooms from the moment they walk though our doors the first time searching for the perfect venue for their Big Day right though all the meeting, call and e-mails til the day they step out of their bridal car, were I meet them with bubbly and walk them up the red carpet and introduce them to their waiting guest attending their wedding reception. Though my eyes I see my Bride & Grooms grow from the original enquiry they had with me until the day they walk down the aisle. For me this is very exciting as I get to know my Bride & Grooms and build a friendship with them. It is so exciting waiting for the bride to step out of the car looking amazing and her Groom who is so happy. The fun of my job is getting to know as many people as possible, chatting and make sure the guests attending the wedding are content, well feed and enjoying the day, with a little bit on banter on the way. Each and every Bride & Groom are individual and I like to make sure that the wedding they imagine I create on the their day. And even more exciting is seeing down the years the new additions to their family they add.

Everybody at the wedding have all spoken so highly of the wonderful service received from you and your staff, which is brilliant to hear.

We are delighted to have chosen the Hillgrove as our venue, the room was lovely and the new entrance was beautiful, after watching the DVD last week we couldn't of being more happy with our day and your added help. A Massive THANK YOU.”

Jason & Lisa Sweeting - Wedding 1st August 2014
"My husband and I got married on September 13th 2014 and we had our reception in the hillgrove hotel Monaghan. We had an absolutely fantastic day.... The service was impeccable not one person had a complaint about either the service or food...my guests are actually still talking about it all a month later!! I would definitely recommend to any bride and groom to be to check out the hillgrove Linda and Kimberley make everything so easy and stress free...it was such a pleasure to deal with all the staff! 20 out of 10 to all involved!!!
"Thank you so much for everything, it was everything we wanted and 100 times more. Kimberly was amazing from our first day of viewing right through until the end f the wedding day. Thank you so much for everything. We will be recommending you to all our future friends who are brides/husbands to be."
"Fabulous venue, even better service! The food was lovely and the room was gorgeous. Our our-of-town guests were amazed, and they haven't stopped telling us how fantastic their day and their stay was. The staff here are fantastic, it's no wonder this hotel is a very popular venue. We live abroad and dreaded planning our wedding for my home town. However, all the staff were so helpful, especially Sharon, Linda, Mike, and in particular Kimberley. She looked after us so well, kept me sane & calm, made our day run so smoothly and even looked after us the next day despite preparing for 2 more weddings that day. She even coordinated a very successful photo opportunity on the famous big pink chair! If we had to do it all again, we would still choose The Hillgrove Hotel"
