We held our Annual Senior Presentation Night at The Hillgrove Hotel Monaghan. We had a fantastic experience right from the moment we paid a visit to check out the venue. We couldn’t have been happier with the management and staff who were more than helpful, offering us ample time to discuss room set up, colour scheme, table plans etc.

On arrival on the night, everything was organised and ready to go. The food was superb with excellent table service from staff and all served within a very reasonable time scale – no long wait between courses.

Throughout our presentations there was always a member of staff discreetly on standby to assist with lighting, sound etc if needed.

Throughout the evening everything went very smoothly and thanks to the late night staff our function room remained private with access allowed only to those attending our event.

Thank you to all involved at The Hillgrove for helping to make our night a success.

Thank you so much for your donation of a prize to our draw at "Tunes for Change" in aid of NSPCC. It was so very generous and we are very grateful. It has been used and the couple had a great time and were delighted with their prize. We have now got a final amount raised which is £8,500 (this is from the concert and draw together). It brings the total amount from all the concerts to just over £40,000 which is brilliant. Thank you so much again.

Still tired from the event, but have to say out of nearly 700 patrons there on the night we did not have one complaint. From myself and the rest of the gang we would like to compliment you on the service and meal. It was a wonderful night and all in Trillick will remember it. It was a pleasure working with you and look forward to meeting you again.
Claire Donnelly, Trillick GFC, 700 Guests.

On behalf of the Ulster Irish Dance Teachers Association I would like to sincerely thank you and indeed all the staff of the Hillgrove Hotel for all your hard work during our Irish Dancing Feis. We, as an association, were thrilled with the facilities provided by yourself, the food and refreshments provided were excellent I would like to especially like to thank you for the outstanding meal provided on Saturday night, all our guests really enjoyed it and passed on excellent comments on the high standard of food and the excellent waiting staff, it was lovely to be able to have the private area for our meal. We found the function rooms excellent and ideal for our requirements. The room was set out perfectly and spotless, the staff at the early hour of the morning setting up were very helpful. I really have no complaints at all. All the staff, from reception, night porters, security, management, every one was excellent. Taking into account that you were not fully aware of what you were taking on, we all felt that you did a fantastic Job, I hope your first experience of the Ulster Irish Dance Teachers Association has not put you off!
Paschal and myself will be in contact with you very shortly to discuss booking for next year it will probably be the same dates, we would be delighted if you would have us back. Would you be good enough to pass on our sincere thanks to your staff. Thank you
Karen Mc Mahon, Ulster Irish Dance Teachers Association. 800 Guests.

We had over 700 people there and we as a committee knew we had done our work and hopefully we could pull it off on the night. Your banqueting manager assured me on Friday that she and the team could pull the meal off no problem with those numbers. Did she? She was amazing!! No fuss just total organisation from start to finish and the food excellent. She is sharp when she needs to be but you can work with her no problem. She is a credit to herself and your hotel. We all went back to the hotel yesterday for our lunch and we got the same again, good service and good food. Your team was there helping someone else with their big day. Their day was in good hands!!
Thank you and Well done Hillgrove!!
Brendan Valelly, Madden GFC Gala Dinner, 719 Guests.

Philip Mallon, St Paul's GFC. 172 Guests.

I am delighted to send on this letter of compliment on behalf of the staff, management and guests of the Football association of Ireland. With over 150 rooms used over a 5 night period, we had no issues whatsoever and everything was to our satisfaction. We used meeting rooms constantly throughout our week in the Hillgrove, and the business centre was excellent. Our gala dinner, with 350 guests, was a huge success, with top glass food and facilities, and our AGM meeting attended by approx 200 people from throughout the country was managed by you with complete efficiency and excellence. I would like to thank you for all the assistance and support provided during the planning of the FAI Festival of Football and AGM in Monaghan in 2009, and the fantastic service and attention to detail during our time in the hotel. Your hospitality and commitment from our first meeting and throughout our week in the hotel was outstanding - the rooms, food and service received was top class. Again, may I say thanks to all involved, and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Hillgrove Hotel both as a holiday and conference venue.
Siobhán Keane, Marketing & Events Manager, FAI, Football Association of Ireland

What can I say; "Fantastic evening" and thanks to all at the Hillgrove for making it such a success.
Thomas Hamill, Silverbridge GFC, 600 Guests.

Just to say thanks, congratulations and well done on a magnificent night on Saturday. I have never heard so many really positive comments in the immediate aftermath of our annual get together. You all did a great job and but for your input and expertise it would not have been the occasion it most certainly was. Again many thanks.
JP Graham, Ulster GAA Writers, 585 Guests.
