Johnny Ward (Fair City / Love Hate) & Brenda Murphy July 8th
As soon as myself and Brenda met Lorna Mc keon we knew we had found our perfect wedding planner! This incredible woman is so warm, kind and bends over backwards to make sure you feel unique and special in the build up to the big day. What makes Lorna stand out amongst the rest is that "Yes" is always the answer and she will always go to great lengths to accommodate exactly what you request in the most professional way. Lorna takes away any stress or concerns you may have towards the big day by coming up with super and faultless ideas that will always make you leave feeling super excited about what you were worried about in the first place! Not only is Lorna second to none but she has also become a very close friend in the organisation of our wedding. We really could not feel more special!
Maria & Dermot - August 11th
The Westgrove Hotel is the perfect Wedding Venue with the most amazing staff!! We recently had our Wedding Reception here and also our Day 2 and we had the most magical Weekend! We were treated like VIP's for the entire time we were there! When we first walked into the Reception to attend the Wedding Fair back in 2021, I turned to Dermot and said "Wow" I was blown away by the beautiful Staircase and instantly fell in love with this Hotel. I knew it was a very special place and needless to say we booked our Wedding Reception with Lorna that day! Lorna the Wedding Coordinator is top class! she is absolutely amazing at her job. Her attention to detail is just unbelievable and I don't think the word "No" is in her Vocabulary! Lorna always went above and beyond to ensure all our requests were fulfilled. She is such a lovely calm person and has a real gift at keeping the Bride calm and relaxed in the run up to the big day. She is a credit to the Westgrove Hotel they are so lucky to have her! We cannot thank her enough for creating the most stunningly beautiful Wedding Reception for us!! We would also like to thank Lydia Lorna's right hand lady who I met in in the run up to our big day. Lydia is such a lovely person and like Lorna will go out of her way to ensure your big day is flawless!! Also a big shout out to the rest of Lorna's Wedding Team for all their hard work behind the scenes and also serving all our guests with the delicious food and Wine. Thank you so much to the Chef - The quality and quantity of the food was 5 Stars!! For Couples who are currently looking at possible Wedding Venues for your big day - We would highly recommend you attend the next Wedding Fair at the Westgrove Hotel.

Louise & Eoghan July 22nd
We recently had our wedding in the Westgrove Hotel, to say it is a stunning hotel is an understatement! From the moment we booked our wedding, Lorna and her incredible team of co-ordinators were on hand to guide us through everything. No request was too big or too small for them, they went above and beyond for us and honestly made planning our wedding so enjoyable and stress free. The attention to detail, communication and support from the wedding team is second to none, they all made us feel like the most important couple in the world. We opted for a package with the hotel which I would highly recommend. Not only is it incredible value for money, but having so much included in the package really takes so much of the stress out of planning a wedding. We could really enjoy the build up and the preparations knowing that our wedding was in such good hands. All of our guests had the most amazing time at our wedding, everyone was raving about how delicious the food was, how there were several offers of extra servings and that the wine flowed all evening! We honestly couldn't have asked for anymore from the hotel. Lorna, Lydia and Bonnie really are a dream team, they are so beautiful both inside and out and will go the extra mile to ensure that your day is absolutely everything you have always hoped and dreamed it would be. Our day was so special. The setting of the hotel, the grand staircase, the roof top terrace, the gardens, they are all exquisite and really have the wow factor. I'm so delighted that we chose the Westgrove Hotel for our wedding, our dreams were turned into reality and it was the best day of our lives. Thank you so much to Lorna, Lydia, Bonnie and all of the staff of the Westgrove who work so tirelessly and are so dedication to their professions. You guys are amazing and a piece of my heart will always belong to this hotel and all the staff.
Jayne & Ian 18 August 2023
From our perspective we genuinely feel we fell on our feet with The Westgrove and particularly Lorna. When we came to the wedding fair there was such a good atmosphere in the place. It was happy, fun relaxed the band was in full swing the drinks flowing and just not quite what I expected. To be honest I don't know what I expected because we actually never look at anywhere else, we knew it was the place for us. When it came to the package and what was on offer we couldn't have got better value. Typically when you buying a package there is a perception of maybe substandard or good for what your getting type thing but I can safely say with out reservation the suppliers the westgrove use are anything but. From the flowers, to the band to our amazing wedding cake there is not one single thing I could fault. What's even better is when I was speaking with each supplier on different things, because they know the hotel and Lorna, everything was soooo smooth and easy there was absolutely nothing to worry or stress about. What ye offer truly is FANTASTIC. On the night of the wedding the room looked out of this world. I mean I was in awe, it was stunning. Bonnie couldn't have been more helpful and professional she had everyrything organised to a fine art as did the lovely lads working the bar that night, no one was left waiting. Our guest couldn't get over the place and how fabulous it was. Myself and Ian felt so proud. And lastly Lorna (wedding coordinator). I never felt that I got my bridezilla moment because dealing with her was so easy going and hassle free. ???? I couldn't have worried even if I tried. No matter what I asked or queried she had an answer, a solution or a plan. I'm so grateful that she looked after us the way she did. Lorna is absolutely fantastic at what she does and honestly we just want to thank you her and the whole team so much. I also wanted to mention coming up to the wedding Lydia looked after us for a couple of days when Lorna was away from the desk and what a lovely lovely person she is. Like Lorna she was a breath of fresh air
Sean & Stephen - May 21st
Myself and my husband, Stephen, were married in the Westgrove Hotel in May of 2022. Lorna Mc Keon was our wedding coordinator and we were blessed to have her. From the beginning, Lorna sat down with us and, before we even started talking about the wedding, she got to know us as people. How we met, what we were watching on Netflix (we both were watching Schitts Creek at the time) and created a foundation of trust with us. Having visited other hotels and met other wedding coordinators, most of them seemed to be a walking sales pitch, but Lorna was down to earth and told us her experience of working in the Westgrove and about her life. Her passion and her sense of humour made us fall in love with the place.
Being a same-sex couple, we were apprehensive about how we would be treated but, with Lorna, she only saw two people in love who wanted to get married. Our entire experience with the entire hotel felt genuine and respected.
The day of the wedding, Lorna kept us calm and even took us aside at one point just to take a breath and take everything in. She was kind and caring to both of us as well as each of our family members. Family means everything to us so to see someone be as loving with them meant the world to us. The Westgrove hotel and its staff are truly amazing. It is where we were married, where we created a day we will always remember and where we will visit again and again. This is because of Lorna McKeon. She is the heart and soul of the hotel and we can never thank her enough.
Jenny & Bryan August 14th
What can I say only if you are looking for a fabulous venue then look no further. The Westgrove Hotel are fantastic, so helpful when planning your big day I went in for out 1st meeting with the wedding planner lorna with a vision of what I wanted and she sat and listened took it all in and from there it just got better and better. I had a few different things I wanted on the day screens for video couple of entertainers etc so time was a big thing so one didn't delay the other. Lorna sat we us and advised us what would work best and I have to say it all ran like clock work. I have to say a massive thank you to the amazing chef John, when I say he was put to the test its an under statement. I have allergies but not a very common one which ment amy food for me had to be done from scratch to leave out the ingredients i couldn't have along with other family members that had different allergies too. I sent a list of all the stuff I couldn't have to them and on the day of our food tasting I was blown away with all the hard work and effort that he had put in so I could sit and eat the same foods as the rest of my family without having to worry. The grounds as amazing for photos and the stair case is show stopping. The staff are wonderful from the time you walk in to the time you leave your made feel like your the only one there. I could go on for ever about this venue and all the staff it's been so amazing and the most hassle free planning I have ever done and its all down to the professionalism and knowledge that the staff have at the Westgrove. Can't thank them enough.
Kelly & Jack October 7th
We cannot put into words how amazing this hotel and staff are! From booking our wedding in 2020 to now, they have all went above and beyond for us. Lorna has been a dream to work with! She’s so friendly, welcoming, calming and amazing at what she does. Nothing was ever an issue and she was always so happy to help and answer the many of questions we had throughout the past 2 years. You’re in very safe hands with Lorna! We went with the ‘all inclusive’ package. It’s most of the work done for you already. All of the suppliers are fantastic - leaving it very hard to choose. The food, drink and atmosphere in the hotel is out of this world!, not to mention the beautiful staircase! The amount of compliments we received from our guests about this venue was unreal. We even had a few book to stay again already! On the wedding day, Lorna & Bonnie made sure everything ran smoothly, along with looking after us and all of our guests. All of the staff involved were so friendly and professional. We had the best day ever and it’s all down to the amazing team at the Westgrove. Really cannot recommend this venue enough! It holds a special place in our hearts now.
Mark Lovett Celebrant
Lorna is a wonderful professional to deal with. Nothing is ever a problem and as a Wedding professional myself, Lorna has always managed to stay in contact with me to discuss what ceremonies are coming up for us both and how we can manage to make everything go smoothly for the couple. Every couple I have spoken to past, and present has only spoken words of heartfelt gratitude to Lorna, they cannot speak highly enough and even the couples I have recommended Lorna to, have booked the Westgrove Hotel for their own wedding. They love how Lorna makes everything so easy for the couple and takes the stress out of the wedding planning. To say Lorna goes above and beyond would be an understatement. She bends over backwards for every couples and checks every little detail to make sure everything goes accordingly with no slip ups on the day. What I love about Lorna is she takes the time to get to know you and your family and every time you are in Lorna’s company in the Westgrove Hotel, it’s like meeting her for the very first time. Lorna has a smile that is very heartfelt and welcoming. As a Wedding celebrant I love the rapport I built up with Lorna and I wish I could have the same relationship with other wedding co-ordinators in other hotels.
Ellen & Sean, May 20th
A couple of weeks removed from the wedding now and we are still buzzed. An amazing day. What can we say about the service other than it was second to none. Lorna is sensational at what she does she’s so attentive and never makes you feel anything other than comfortable and welcome. It was an amazing experience and we couldn’t even make up a complaint! We will now always mention this establishment to anyone who is planning on getting married and anyone who will listen! Thanks again for everything!
Naomi & Stephen, September 3rd
I can not recommend the Westgrove highly enough from the moment we walked in to the hotel a year before myself and Stephen felt so at ease. Lorna was inviting, honest, funny and so professional we just knew there and then the westgrove was for us. I didn’t once worry not even on my wedding day Lorna and the team had everything handled. Even Lorna doing last minute dress alterations in the hall way and done without hesitation. They all went above and beyond for our wedding… The food was amazing the dessert to die for and the staff in the reception hall absolutely amazing they had everything timed so well and it made the experience even better.. A million thank yous wouldn’t be enough for what the westgrove done for us.
Niamh & Dean, June 3rd
Just had our wedding in The Westgrove Hotel....what can we say... from start to finish the whole thing was fantastic. Lorna the wedding coordinator and her team went above and beyond to ensure a stress free and very special service and ceremony. We worried for nothing. I can not recommend Lorna and Lydia enough. From their general manager Bonnie to the banqueting staff and reception team, they all did their very best for us. We really felt like VIPs. We had the All Inclusive wedding package and it was well worth it. Compliments are still coming in about the food... delicious and piping hot which is very rare at a banquet. The choices in their package are more than adequate. We had a lovely cake provider (Bev, Amazing Cakes), lovely flowers, great band (uptownband.ie) and DJ and a fun selfie mirror (Tony). The whole thing flowed seamlessly!
Pamela & Vincent, May 19th
Absolutely amazing venue for a wedding, we had a wonderful day. The hotel went above and beyond for all of our special requests, and nothing was too much work for them. The decoration of the civil ceremony room and the banqueting hall was absolutely beautiful. The staff were very attentive and professional. We absolutely would definitely recommend Lorna on her team to lead the way on your wedding.
Andrea & Gerry, March 24th
On the 24th of March 2023, I had my wedding at The Westgrove Hotel. It was absolutely amazing! The hotel is stunningly beautiful and all the staff are very friendly and very helpful. A big Thank You to our amazing wedding coordinator Lorna Mc Keon - her support and recommendations were outstanding. A big thank you to Andrew and his team who were on top with everything regarding the service. Every single one of our guests had a great time and have been raving about the hotel, service & staff. Food was exceptional, high standard from the presentation to food tasting, a big thank you to the kitchen staff and their hard work. I personally was very impressed to be greeted by the General Manger Bonnie and her involvement was very helpful too, thank you. Overall, 10 out of 10 Highly Recommended for every event you want to have you’ll be assured that you and your guests are going to be looked after. I will definitely return to Westgrove Hotel, thank you SO MUCH!
Chrissie & Jody, August 28th
We had our wedding here and it was beyond amazing, it was everything we could ever have dreamed of and so much more. We couldn't have done it without Lorna who worked tirelessly with us to help create one of the most magical days of our lives. Big shout out to Bonnie for absolutely everything . There really aren't words to convey the professionalism and the creativity of this hotel. The food was absolutely amazing and the day ran like clockwork. The ladies on reception were so helpful and no request was too much. Sharon in particular was a pleasure to deal with. Fabulous hotel , fabulous staff , fabulous day with fabulous memories made.
Ciara & Paul, December 31st
Myself and my partner are absolutely thrilled with the service we have been given from Lorna, from day one she has been an absolute god send, nothing was a problem and everything has been so stress free. Food is amazing and plenty of gluten free options, rooms are spotless. Everything you could ever need is supplied in the Wedding Package we chose. We just simply decided what we would like and which suppliers we wanted and now have nothing to worry about until the day, so simple and easy. I never thought wedding planning could be so easy, with Lorna and the Westgrove everything is taken care of. Highly recommended!!!
Jenny & Bryan August 14th
All around fantastic easy experience, Lorna was amazing on the run up and on the day of the wedding. They made us feel relaxed and helped the day run extremely smoothly. I couldn’t be happier with the experience I had with the Westgrove hotel. Everyone I have talked to have complemented how well the day went. I also would like to extend my thanks to Bonnie who was also with me throughout calming me down and announcing us into the dining hall, Thank you to everyone. Such a special experience, one that we won’t ever forget.
Niamh & James, August 13th
Myself and James aren't on social media, so we can't share our absolute joy at having our wedding at Westgrove with people in that way. So we wanted to send you some feedback here and say that if you wanted to share our contact details with anyone thinking about booking with yourselves, to please do so.
From the time we were shown around the venue before booking to checking out the morning after our wedding, our experience with the Westgrove Hotel was nothing short of exemplary. All the staff we interacted with - wedding planning, reservations, bar and restaurant - were an absolute pleasure to deal with and we felt so well looked after at every visit.
The whole wedding planning process was made so easy by having the package with yourselves, and I have to say each supplier we dealt with were absolutely lovely. I would recommend each of them to anyone booking their wedding in the future.
So many of our guests gave such enthusiastic feedback on the food and staff on the day itself, saying they were so well looked after. It was wonderful to hear that, so please do thank all the staff who took such good care of us on the day.
The rooms we stayed in - the apartment on Friday and the Strawberry Suite on the Saturday - were both so comfortable and spacious, and the breakfasts both mornings (what of them we could eat!) were delicious.
Thank you for organising our guest book set up and ensuring everything was tidied up and organised for us to bring home again the next day. The spaces for the ceremony, drinks and dinner were all beautifully set up and to be honest, everything felt a bit like a dream! We were moved from one beautiful surrounding to the next, didn't have to worry about a thing and the day was just so much fun.
We had such a fantastic day, as did all of our guests, so if there's any website or survey we can leave our positive feedback for the Westgrove Hotel, please do let us know and we would be happy to share it.
Thanks again to you both and your fantastic colleagues for a wonderful day!
Leanne & Connor, July 29th
We had our wedding in The Westgrove on the 29th of July. From our very first visit we felt as though we had found our dream venue.
The grounds are beautiful, the staircase is fabulous and the rooftop terrace where we held our ceremony was amazing.
Every member of staff that we met was professional, friendly and couldn't be any more helpful.
Lorna is just a beautiful soul to work with, you can tell she really loves her job. All messages were answered promptly by herself or Debbie, always helpful and always able to have a bit of banter about me being slightly nuts they never made me feel as though I was a burden in anyway.
Bonnie kept the day running so smoothly, we've had numerous people compliment us on how well the day flowed and how it's the only wedding they've attended that everything ran to the exact times that it was meant to!
The wait staff were incredibly helpful and did a great job, and the bar staff were great fun all night!
The all inclusive package had everything you could need, the vendors are nearly all amazing to deal with and go out of their way to be accommodating with any requests we had.
We had an entirely gluten free menu... the entire dinner including dessert, the canapés at the drinks reception, the midnight food and the breakfast the next morning. The kitchen staff really outdone themselves because it was delicious!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Westgrove to anyone we had our dream day there and it was all thanks to the amazing and tireless work of the staff there. Thank you so much for everything, we can't wait to come stay again
Lorraine & Damien, July 1st
We had our wedding here on 01st July 2022 and it was amazing. From the moment we visited our 1st wedding fair at the Westgrove we knew it was the place for us but unfortunately due to covid we had to hold out longer than planned. But it was worth the wait. Everything was amazing, the venue, the ceremony room, the function room, the food, the staff, the rooms. Couldn't fault a thing. Lorna went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect for us and it really was. Looking forward to visiting again. 100% recommend the venue for any future couples. Thank you for everything. Lorraine & Damien
Louise & Brian, June 24th
We had the most amazing day from start to finish in the Westgrove. Lorna and Debbie answered all our questions with patience and no request was an issue for them. The room for the ceremony was so beautiful and romantic and the food was absolutely amazing. Each and every one of the staff went above and beyond to make our day the most perfect day that we could possible imagine. Everything was perfect and we could not have asked for any more. We would highly recommend the Westgrove hotel to any couples thinking about it. You will have the most amazing experience and a day to cherish forever.
Jemma & Derek, June 3rd
We loved the friendly, non-corporate feel of the hotel - especially from the staff. We were treated with respect and understanding. In other hotels it can feel quite cold and that they read from a script. In The Westgrove Hotel, we were made feel completely at ease. The friendly and professional were one of the highlights for us. The venue itself is beautiful and the All Inclusive Package took so much stress off of us in terms of organizing and planning the overall wedding. Highly recommend!
Alexandra & Christian, December 18th
We had our wedding in the Westgrove Hotel on the 18/12/2021. There’s not enough stars to rate this hotel. Absolutely every single thing was perfect. The staff went above and beyond. From the very first day sitting with the incredible wedding coordinator Lorna to the big day itself she was truly amazing. I would relive the day over and over again and wouldn't change a thing. All the staff in the Westgrove are amazing and made our day so special.
Shauna & Paul, November 27th
The Westgrove was a wonderful venue for our wedding. We had a civil ceremony in the hotel followed by a beautiful reception. The team are so professional and helpful and the day went so smoothly and was exactly what we wanted. Lorna and Ben were brilliant and helped us tailor the package to our own needs. Everyone at the wedding said how perfect it was. Couldn’t recommend it as a venue enough.
