StarStarStarStar by Lisa & Wayne Clarke  

We had our wedding in the Hillgrove Hotel on 26th September. To say it was good would be wrong, it was absolutely amazing and out of this world. The day we first went down to chat about our wedding we met Linda, we were treated like the only ever bride & groom, she had so much time to spend with us and go through everything in detail. There was no doubt in our minds that we wanted to have our reception here. During the whole lead up to the wedding Linda was on hand to answer any questions, there was nothing too big or too small to ask her. She went through everything in fine detail and made sure we were always 110% happy with everything.
When we arrived to the hotel the day of the wedding I was taken back by the look of the reception room, it was like something from a fairytale, I was totally blown away with how beautiful and stunning it looked. Our guests were totally impressed. Then it came to the meal and things just seemed to get better. The food was fabulous, it was warm, tasty and the presentation was first class. There was no guests left waiting on food, the service was the best I have ever seen. Our guests were asked on a few different occasions if everything was ok and if they required anything else, they even got offered second servings of meat and veg for the main course.
Your wedding day is the most special day in your life and you want it to be perfect. With Linda and her team in the hillgrove hotel we got that. From entering the grounds of the hillgrove you know you are entering somewhere spectacular.
Thank you to Linda for giving us a day to remember for the rest of our lives.

From the moment we enquired to the Hillgrove Hotel about choosing a venue for our wedding, the Hillgrove Hotel has been fantastic. Linda was very helpful and noting was a problem. She made everything so easy for us and took away alot of stress regarding the venue.
The decor of the Hillgrove Hotel is fabulous. The food is amazing and staff all professional and very efficient at their job.
We had a great day in the Hillgrove and if we were to get married all over again we would choose the Hillgrove Hotel everytime.
We would recommend the Hillgrove Hotel to any couple getting married.

We had our wedding here in the Van Gogh suite, which is just stunning with a beautiful entrance...
Our wedding day was perfect and much of that is down to the Hillgrove staff especially Linda who looked after us.. Nothing was a problem for her and any changes we had to make were taking care of straight away... Off all the things I panicked about before our wedding, the reception was not one of them..
Any of the guests i spoke to said the food was amazing and plenty of it.. Thanks so much to you all for making our day that extra bit special

We had our wedding here on the 28th August. The whole experience was amazing at the hotel. The staff were unreal. They couldn't do more to help you. The food was top class. Everyone complemented on how lovely the food was. The decor is so beautiful at the hotel. I think even people at my wedding who are picking venues are now considering the Hillgrove. So glad I decided on the Hillgrove for our venue as it was just perfect.


"Myself and John were delighted with the A * treatment we received on our wedding day. Many thanks to all the staff especially Linda Scott."

Claire & John

"Excellent venue and from first meeting to the end of the day the staff were so helpful and knowledgeable, it made the day a huge success and extremely enjoyable for our friends and family. A day to remember food was excellent. The finishing touches were beautiful and added so much to our day. Kimberly & Linda who dealt with our booking were excellent."

Emma & John

" Hi linda just sending this final email to you to thank you personally for everything in relation to the wedding. I was extremely pleased with how it all turned out . You were super attentive on the day and I can't thank you enough for that . The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful . Many many thanks. "

Angela and Peter

"Thank you so much for all your help right from the start. You were fantastic and a pleasure to work with."

Monique Madden –Wedding Team Hillgrove Hotel Leisure & Spa

My name is Monique Madden and I have been General Manager of the Hillgrove Hotel for 13 years. I have worked in the Wedding industry for over twenty years now and have co-ordinated Weddings in England, Germany and the USA. I always build up great trust with my Brides & Grooms. Due to my extensive experience, and my attention to detail, they know they can trust me and the Hotel to make their wedding day perfect. It takes a lot of pressure off the couple, to know they are in good hands, leaving them to organise other aspects of their Wedding Day. The Head Chef, Paul Dolan and I, run the kitchen on the day of a Wedding with military precision. Our entire team work as a team and that is what makes us all work so well. I am so proud of our product and I can guarantee every Bride & Groom the Wedding Day of their dreams. 
And here's what some of our couples have said about Monique

"We wish to thank you Kimberly, Linda and Monique. You put so much effort to have your fab hall ready for us in time and made us feel so special. We will never forget it  and you hyperness is class."

 Mary Quigley - Wedding Co-Ordinator Hillgrove Hotel Leisure & Spa

My name is Mary Quigley, I've worked in hospitality from a very young age, I always knew it was something I enjoyed. I've worked in the Hillgrove hotel from 2011. I previously studied a degree course in Culinary Arts in Cathal Brugha Street, DIT. After spending 2 years there I decided it wasn't the career I wanted to pursue. I continued with my work in the Hotel. I thoroughly enjoyed my job being part of a amazing team in Knuttel Bistro, where colleagues quickly became great friends.

Over the years I have worked my way up in the Hotel thanks to the support of the people I work with, I now love Co hosting Weddings with our banqueting manager. The Wedding Team work tirelessly to ensure every detail of your Special day is amazing.
Being involved in the planning and overseeing such a Special Day really is such a rewarding job.

After recently getting engaged myself I know exactly what you are going through! It's not an easy task!! I'm very proud to say I've trusted my lovely colleagues with my own Special day, the food and service you find in this Hotel is hard to match.

I'm very proud to be part of such an amazing hotel and look forward to meeting all our new potential brides & grooms. Happy planning.

And here's what some of our couples had to say about Mary

Barney & Shauna Middleton

Barney and I had our wedding reception recently in The Hillgrove Hotel and from start to finish, the day was perfect! Mary Quigley, our wedding coordinator, was a wee gem and was always there to answer our questions and queries. The food was gorgeous, the room was laid out beautifully, even the way the table was done for the cake! The attention to detail was second to none! I really would wholeheartedly recommend this fantastic hotel for future brides and grooms! You will not be disappointed!

James & Siobhan O'Kane

James and I booked our wedding almost 2 years before our choosen date and we were extremely lucky to get this date available in the Hillgrove Hotel. I think the popularity of the Hillgrove speaks volumes. From start to finish we received an exceptional level of service. The Hillgrove are certainly masters in this field!! I also feel that we were very fortunate in bagging Mary Quigley as out coordinator!!! Mary took the time to respond to every email, phonecall and query I had. She went above and beyond for us and I am eternally grateful. The day ran so smoothly and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Hillgrove Hotel to any future Mr and Mrs!! Siobhan and James xx 30.12.16 

Kirsty & James Donnelly

My new husband and I had our wedding with the Hillgrove in November both reception and civil ceremony. It was a complete fairytale and the whole day and night went off without a hitch, when I needed help with anything at all I knew I could contact Mary and she would go above and beyond to help me out. She was a wee gem and I was so thankful as planning a wedding can be quite stressful but with the way things are run with this hotel... it's really not stressful at all.. not with them anyway!! The ceremony room was stunning and Mary had it laid out exactly like I said! The food was amazing and everyone has told me they have never been to a wedding like it and that they loved every minute. The reception was outstanding and so personal! Bridal suite was unreal! Mary made sure everything ran smoothly and that we were kept on time and it worked so perfectly well. Thanks so much to the Hillgrove and especially to Mary for giving me my fairytale wedding and treating me like a princess! I will definitely be back for a nice stay!! Mr & Mrs Donnelly Xx
