Marie & Michael July Wedding 2017
Just a quick message to say thank you for all your help in organising our wedding. We had an excellent day on Saturday which would not have been possible without the help and advice given to us by yourself, Pauline and the team at the hotel. The food on the night was lovely and numerous guests commented on the quality of it, and the service received throughout the hotel.
From the second we arrived at the hotel we were looked after and the day flowed seamlessly thanks to the efforts made by the staff - Dara and I didn't have to worry about anything, all pressure was taken off. The cheese and port stand went down a treat, a number of my friends are looking to steal the idea!
Thanks again for everything.
Laura & Dara
Donna & Declan October Wedding 2017
Dear Valerie, Pauline, and all the fantastic staff of the Salthill Hotel,
We are writing you this email from a warm, relaxed and tired Spain! From the deepest corners of our hearts, both Donna and I, along with our families, friends and loved ones one and all would like to offer everyone the biggest THANK YOU for providing us with the best of service over the best weekend of our lives.
From the moment we began the wedding planning right up to departing yesterday, you have embodied the type of professionalism, friendliness, enthusiasm and kindness that we never would have expected. Some of the nicest comments we received both on the day of the wedding and the days before and after were from guests and family about how amazing, kind and accommodating you all were. From the bar staff, front of house and waiting staff, reception (Peggy, Eileen, Ciara, and all the gang) the breakfast staff (Jean leading the way) the porters, staff in the Prom (Goran did a great job on Thursday and provided a fantastic bar service over the weekend) and to everyone who worked tirelessly on Friday, we cannot shower you all in enough praise. From assisting with elderly/disabled guests, high fiving the youngest kids and providing a service that would be akin to a 5+ Star Hotel to all in attendance, everyone represented the Hotel in a phenomenal light.
A note on the wedding day itself. We had a very simple brief; feed people well with good food throughout and keep them topped up with any beverage they fancied so as to keep everyone happy. And you guys nailed it!!! The level of detail shown throughout: drinks before the ceremony, the pre reception, the evening reception, the late night and residents bar was all beyond anything we had imagined. We have heard nothing but glowing reviews about the food, the service from the staff, the "generous" wine measures and everything in between!
A special word of thanks to Pauline for keeping the evening running smoothly and kept everyone's bellies full at ALL stages of evening!! The quality of food and service throughout was a credit to everyone, and please pass on our thanks to all of the kitchen staff, and Johnny for creating the most beautiful meal.
A huge thank you must go to Valerie, who looked after most of the planning for our big day from the very early stages. Thank you so so much for your time and effort, the dedication, the care and affection you showed throughout. No job was too big, no task was too absurd and above all every single time we met you had the biggest and most genuine smile on your face. We were at ease throughout the build up and the day, as were you, and the results speak for themselves.
To all of the staff; you have a great thing going. Patrick, thank you for everything you did for us. The group dynamic is more like a small family run country pub than a large City hotel. Don't lose that, it's amazing to be within a working group that gets on so well, provides an outstanding service and above all, everyone has fun doing it. You are a credit to the hotel, and we cannot recommend you high enough.
We enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you. As mentioned by one of your reception staff on Saturday morning, you seemed to gel with us and bond with us, and that feeling is mutual. We will never forget that, and are eternally grateful.
We look forward to calling in and visiting in the future, and attending future events with you. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
With the warmest regards,
Donna and Declan Hickey
Marie & Michael July Wedding 2017

Marie & Michael
Lorna & John June Wedding 2017
Salthill Hote are the only hotel in Galway City to even consider for your wedding! It was the happiest, most beautiful and unbelievable day of our lives and that is largely down to the outstanding service throughout the hotel all day. From start to finish it went without a hitch. The food served all weekend during our 7 course tasting menu, the service at dinner, pre-drinks reception, the bar that day and night, the smiles on everyone's faces spoke volumes. They even helped us pull off our very own in house nightclub after our band... absolutely everything was just first class! John and I were truly blown away by the level of effort and care we received on the day and we both felt like royalty. I've seen so many weddings through the doors over the years at the hotel and feared ours would be no different, how wrong I was. It was just absolute class, the hotel overall and the ballroom and draping looked smashing on the day and brought a tear to my eye. I won't ever forget all the support we received, each and every one of the hotel staff made our dream day a reality and truly showed that Salthill Hotel can do a 5 star wedding and more! I cannot recommend the hotel enough. First class.
Lorna & John
Sarah & Stephen June Wedding 2017
Thank you and your incredible team at Salthill Hotel for making our day the very best. You were super from the minute we booked and we cannot thank you enough.
Nothing was a problem for you and you reassured us throughout. We had the time of our lives and could not have asked for more. The hotel looked stunning, the reception area was so inviting with the fabulous layout of drink and canapes and the piano player added to the ambience immensely.
The function room itself blew us all away with its fabulous layout and decor. The food was fabulous and everyone complimented both the delicious food and impeccable service. Your team looked after everybody so well throughout the day. We are extremely grateful to you and your team Valerie for making our Wedding day so wonderful and stress free. We will be calling down when we return from honeymoon to thank you in person.
Sarah & Stephen

Simon & Nichola O'Sullivan - February 2017
Just a short note of appreciation from myself and Nichola, regarding the exceptional service provided by the Salthill Hotel on our wedding day, Saturday 11th February.
The food and drink at the pre-reception, main reception and in the residents bar were of the highest quality and went down an absolute treat with all the guests. We received so many remarks on how fantastic the food and drink was throughout the day, as well as the generosity of the portions (the extra helping of sea bass and fillet steak was something some guests hadn't seen before).
I also want to highlight the friendliness of all the staff in the hotel, Eileen the head waitress and the rest of the staff could not have been more accommodating and professional in ensuring the whole day went smoothly.
So many guests told us and the rest of our family that it was one of the best weddings that they've ever been to, so a huge thank you from myself and Nichola for contributing a massive part to the overall success of the day.
Thank you for all your help throughout the planning and preparation, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with
Michael & Edel Guilfoyle - October 2016
This hotel is without doubt one of the best. There is not many hotels that can tick the box on just about everything but i can sincerely say Salthill hotel did it for us. I dealt with Kerry mostly when planning our wedding and it was a pleasure. Nothing was too much to ask for and she tailored everything to suit our needs and what we wanted on the day. I have such lovely memories from this day and cannot wait to return to stay in the salthill hotel again. Fiona the general manager is fantastic, she welcomes every guest and really makes your experience there very special and one to remember. Our guests loved the hotel and the staff are amazing. You dont even need to compare this hotel to any other. It is in a league of its own. FABULOUS!
Paul & Sharon Cummins - October 2016
Hi Valerie, Pauline, Kerry & All at The Salthill Hotel,
Thank you so much for your email.
I want to say a massive thank you from the bottom of both our hearts. From start to finish you were all amazing, nothing was a problem! Everybody is still talking about the room and how beautiful it was. The food was second to none, our guests could not believe how amazing the food was & how ye could cater for 350+ and get the steak to be so good! Top Class!!! Your staff both in reception, function room & bar was just brilliant so welcoming and warm. We could not have picked a better hotel to have our wedding. Thank you all so much for making our wedding day the best of our lives.
Massive 5 Stars from us!
Love Sharon & Paul xxx

Stuart & Lisa Connolly - September 2016
We held our wedding in Salthill Hotel in Sept 2016 and we genuinely could not recommend the hotel highly enough. From our first meeting with Kerry, Valerie & Pauline to the day itself, everything ran so smoothly. They were a pleasure to deal with, nothing was a problem and everything we requested was delivered to perfection. Our wedding weekend was absolutely perfect. The whole weekend was so chilled out and relaxed. So many of our guests commented on the excellent food and service. All the hotel staff were absolutely brilliant and so professional. We also stayed and had a BBQ for the 2nd day. There was a lovely atmosphere, family got to enjoy a walk on the prom before enjoying the BBQ food and music in the bar that evening. Again the food was plentiful & top class. We would have no hesitation in recommending Salthill Hotel as the best wedding venue in the West.
Thank you all so much,
Lisa & Stuart
Gerry & Trisha Finn - July 2016
Meant to do this ages ago and never got around to it. Just a little word of thanks you all in Salthill Hotel especially you ladies & Kerry. You guys made our day so special from the moment we arrived. It was truly our dream day and we wouldn’t change any of it if we were to do it all over again (trust me we won’t). Our guests are still raving about the food on the day, it was just excellent and they couldn’t get over the hotel and service that was given to them on the day. The way you guys set up the room was just brilliant, it was stunning and a lot of our guests were just amazed by it, they had never seen a nicer room apparently, a few mentioned the lovely ambiance in the room. A lot of our guests had never been in the Salthill Hotel (which I found amusing) and very impressed with it, and said that they will come back so hopefully you will get some new customers.
Myself and Gerry can’t thank you enough for everything ye have done for us, stars the lot of ye! We have settled into married life (all roses and love hearts!!!!!), honeymoon over and just waiting the Sam McGuire to make his journey across the Shannon on Saturday, sure that would just top our year off completely!!
Hope all is well you all, thanks so much again xx
Gerry & Trisha

"Hi Pauline & all at Salthill Hotel
We want to thank everyone of you for your hard work on the 11th June which made our wedding day absolutely perfect in every way. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff on the day and all our guests are still telling us how great the food and service was. It was difficult enough organising a wedding from London but the help we were given in the year leading up to the wedding was outstanding. We honestly felt like the stress and pressure was taken off our hands.
We seriously do not know how Salthill Hotel would cope if it didn’t have Pauline running the place from start to finish and all her right hand people (Una, Raj & Jane) I don’t think there was anything they could not do. Pauline must be lodging in one of the hotel rooms as she did not seem to go home all weekend!!!!
Thank you again and our 1 and only complaint is that you have depressed half of North West London who want to come back and do it all over again!!!
Dave & Yvonne - May 2014
Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job in helping arrange our wedding celebration, from start to finish it was a fairy tale come true.
Michelle & James - Spring Wedding
We held our Wedding Reception in the Salthill Hotel on Friday 18th March. We would sincerely like to thank Pauline, Una, Jane and all the staff of The Salthill Hotel for making our wedding day so special. We were extremely impressed by the way everything was handled from start to finish. From the first meeting with Pauline through to the big day, we felt assured the whole time and never doubted our choice of hotel to celebrate our wedding.
Pauline knows how to pull out all the stops within the planning process and all the little touches that the hotel have on offer. The lighting and decoration of the Rockbarton Suite on the day surpassed our expectations it just looked “Wow”. Even now, our guests continue to comment about the room, the food and the service which they received. We are very happy we had our reception here and would highly recommend The Salthill Hotel and thank you again for making our day so magical.
Olivia Fleming - July Wedding

“I couldn’t praise the hotel enough. The entire day was fantastic from the minute we arrived at the door to when we checked out. We were made to feel very
special. The room looked great, the meal was gorgeous, and everything was so well organized. There were no delays and everything went smoothly. Probably what stood out most were the staff on the day, they couldn’t do enough. It really was the best day of our lives and I would recommend the hotel to anyone.”
