A few words

from some couples

who have shared their day with us..... 


"The day flowed seamlessly..."

"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 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!"

"The best weekend of our lives..."

 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 the breakfast staff the porters, staff in the Prom 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!

To all of the staff; you have a great thing going. 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.

"Outstanding service..."

Salthill Hotel 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.

"Blew us all away...."

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.

"The hotel is a well oiled machine...."

Thank you for the note. We are in Harvey's point in Donegal now for the next few days just chilling out.
Thank you and the staff for everything. As I said in my speech the hotel is a well oiled machine and top quality in all aspects.
Edwina and myself live in Galway so we'll definitely be popping in for a bite to eat from time to time!

Jack & Edwina Purcell - February 2017




We just can't thank you enough for everything you all did to make our wedding reception absolutely perfect. We received endless complements about the venue and the food. It looked absolutely beautiful and was everything we hoped for and so much more!

You were all so easy to deal with and we always felt that your main concern was that we had a wonderful experience... Which we certainly did.
Everything was seamless and so well timed and we will definitely be back!!!!

"Exceptional service...."

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, they 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

"In a league of its own..."

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. Nothing was too much to ask for and they 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. The general manager is fantastic, they welcomed 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!

"The food was second to none...."

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!
