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.
"We would like to thank Kimberly and staff for their hard work and professionalism. You book your wedding with the people who care about you & your day, not the hotel. We’re delighted we chose the Hillgrove. Thanks again."
Paudie & Majella

"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."
