Event Testimonials

50th Anniversary  

We had a wonderful night and cannot thank you and the team enough for everything you have done. Everything was fantastic on the night including the decor, staff and the atmosphere there. Ger could not have been any more attentive to us. The food was one of the BIG highlights and was mentioned back to us on the night itself and also from people who've been in touch since Saturday. Can you pass these compliments back to the kitchen please. Thanks again for all of your help and we will certainly be recommending the Absolute to our friends and family.

Birthday Celebrations 2018

I have to say that the food was unbelievable and everyone was talking about it how good it was. Can you take this back to your chef and his staff in the kitchen. Service we very good as well.

Christening 2018

We recently held our sons christening in the Absolute Hotel.  The service was fantastic on the day, the hotel made everything very easy for us.  Darren looked after us for the evening, he went above & beyond to make sure we were well looked after & took the stress away from us.  I would highly recommend the Absolute Hotel as a venue to hold a special occasion, the function room was big enough for the kids to run around, the food was super & the service exceptional. 

Confirmation 2018

Just want to say that everything was fantastic Saturday for the confirmation, we cannot praise the staff enough. The food and service was excellent , everyone really enjoyed themselves. 

Meeting 2017

I have been tutoring for the past number of years and we regularly use your hotel. Every time, I have found the facilities and service of the highest standard. Eoin is so helpful, always sorts things, and is so professional, polite and courteous. I really had to compliment the service he gives.

 Dinner Party 2017

The room was ideal and was very well laid out. The food was also excellent. Many of our guests, especially those who had never been to the hotel were very impressed with the venue and the staff. It turned out to be the ideal venue and we would definitely go back again. Thanks very much for everything.

BBQ 2017

The team had a fantastic day, as always, the Absolute team made us all feel welcome. The food, service and whole experience was perfect.

It truly is a great spot, you have a brilliant team and I could not recommend you enough.


Family Reunion 2017

Everything went really well on Saturday night. I couldn't speak highly enough of Darren who looked after us very efficiently and all the team at the Absolute.

BBQ 2017

Everything was great on Friday, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We were blessed with the weather so we got to enjoy the food on the balcony, which was lovely. It was great to have the inside area ready for us then when it got a bit cooler in the evening, so this was perfect.

Hen party 2017

I would like to say a huge thank you to yourself and the team at the absolute hotel. The staff were amazing and courteous. The rooms were amazing, spacious and so comfortable. Everyone that stayed were extremely complimentary with regards to the hotel and staff. The meal was perfect. You made us so welcome. You have a fantastic package set out for any hen party and I would highly recommend anyone staying in Limerick to book in to the absolute. We had a fantastic night away and the hen, thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. 

Meeting 2017

I must say from the moment we checked in yesterday the entire experience was second to none. We had some lunch served to us in our meeting room by very helpful staff who could not do enough for us. The meeting room was well equipped and had everything we needed and was very comfortable.

The bedrooms were really top class and again nothing was left out, and all our experiences were positive.

Christmas party 2016

I must say we all had a wonderful time. Not a complaint in the bunch and everyone had a right good night. Thank you so much and your team for facilitating such a wonderful night. The Jackie Chan All-stars band went down really well among my department anyhow and everyone was up dancing even folk who wouldn’t usually step out onto the dance floor. Booking was straight forward, there were no hiccups or anything along the way and I’d definitely recommend you to any other Christmas party or even just for a night out. Thank you again.

Naming ceremony 2016

I wanted to email and thank you for your support in organising our naming party.
I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel staff. Everyone was super helpful and professional. Owen, night manager was great. So attentive as were all the serving staff. The hotel staff are it's greatest asset. My aunt who stays in 5 stars hotels in London and NY said the staff in the Absolute Hotel were by far the best she had come across.

The food was delicious. All the guest were raving about it. The bar staff were very personable. Particularly the gentleman making the cocktails.
The rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. All my siblings, aunts and friends that stayed in the hotel were extremely impressed. My aunts and uncles are already planning a mid week break.
Every where was clean and well maintained. Looking forward to planning another party there in the future. 

Thanks again so much.
Warm regards,

Dinner Party 2016

Our experiences over the week end were very positive. Our rooms were delightful, spacious and quiet. In fact you have a hidden gem as I did not realise the rooms were to such a high standard. Quite the best in Limerick I would have thought. The small touches such as the macaroons/champagne on arrival were wonderful. All our friends who stayed were truly delighted with the facilities.

In terms of the evening itself, it was faultless. The reception room was beautifully laid out, the drinks reception could not have gone better. The menu was wonderful and the food was scrumptious. The staff are a credit to the hotel and the attention to detail was second to none. All requests were met without the slightest hesitation-well done to all concerned. It was clear from the attention and service we received that our function was important to you and this was noticed by our guests who were very happy and enchanted by the whole experience. A number of our guests had not been in the hotel before and were really pleased the way the whole event was managed by you and your colleagues.

Our rating would be A*.

So many thanks to you and your colleagues for turning a birthday celebration in a memorable event. Please pass on our congratulations and thanks to your colleagues.

40th Wedding anniversary 2016

Thanks a mill for the mail, we thoroughly enjoyed our weekend! I cannot rate highly enough the service we received throughout the process. 

Firstly, you were invaluable in creating this day with us, we really felt all our requests were listened to and delivered with superb attention to detail.  On the night itself, the staff were all extremely helpful and friendly, in particular the duty manager on the night (Eoin) as he checked in regularly with us, so much so  party-goers were commenting on it. 

The food was great and vegetarian options were much appreciated.  Many thanks again for all your help and we will definitely be using the venue for any future bookings we have!

Hen party 2016

I honestly do not know where to start - the weekend was just fantastic and from the minute we arrived to the last person checking out everyone was raving about the hotel, - the rooms, the meal, the staff everything was just exceptional!! You all went above and beyond anything we had expected, from the welcome macaroons in the bride's room - to the personalized menus at dinner and the little things like arranging all the rooms close by it truly was amazing. I have to say in particular the staff are an absolute credit to the place - in particular Mark on the front desk was just brilliant!

Conference 2016,

Hi Collette,

I mentioned this on the day to the hotel staff but I have to say it again, your hotel was the most efficient out of the four we held events in and the food was the nicest. We had a lot of feedback on the day on the quality of your food....particularly the snickers ice cream.  Also, the staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all the best value for money and will continue to recommend your hotel to my colleagues.

Birthday Party June 2015,

Hi Yvonne

Both Kieran and I were extremely impressed with the room and especially the decor. The tables looked fabulous and I loved the balloon centrepieces the colours were exactly what I hoped for and the blue uplighters added to the party theme. The cocktail reception was a great hit with all the guests who all commented on how nice the cosmopolitans were . All the guest were extremely impressed with the hotel. 

The food was beautiful and well laid out . 

I booked Jonathon The DJ you recommended and was delighted he was very nice and knew exactly what to play for the crowd, I would highly recommend him to everyone.

David introduced himself to me Friday night and was very kind and very alert making sure everything was perfect , he deserves high praise, also your night manager Christopher was very professional like David and looked after all guests leaving , calling taxis for those that needed and looking after people as they left the hotel. They both deserve high praises. 

I also would like to thank you Yvonne for your very professional organising of my party and for all your creative ideas which were very helpful. It was a wonderful night that I will never forget and I will highly recommend you to family and friends.
Overall it was five star treatment , for which I am so appreciative of

Meeting February 2015

“Great spot for a meeting”

I had the pleasure of visiting the Absolute for a recent two day workshop. The meeting room facilities were excellent – extremely comfortable and naturally bright. Coffee breaks were well presented, located in an airy lounge area. The lunch breaks were delicious; tasty homemade soup and fabulous sandwiches and wraps. The location of the restaurant was great, overlooking the river which created a nice atmosphere and rejuvenating break before going back to the meeting for the afternoon. Easy to find and with parking on-site – I would highly recommend the hotel for a meeting and look forward to a return visit – for leisure next time.

Event January 2015

We had a super night! Everything went perfectly, the staff were excellent, the food was delicious and everyone enjoyed it. My mum didn't have a clue and was totally blown away which really made the night!

I would highly recommend the hotel to my friends! Thanks for everything,
