This was definitely one of the best (and easiest) day of our lives. People talk about the difficulty of managing a wedding but the whole thing was a breeze! All the staff at the Absolute Hotel showed professionalism, interest, and courtesy throughout the planning and the event, whilst also revealing their easy-going and warm personalities. From the bar staff (wonderful cocktails!), to the kitchen staff (delicious food), waiting staff (kind and efficient), to the event and management teams (engaging and warm), we couldn’t have asked for more! Thankyou to all for the day. If we were permitted to do it all again we would!

I don't know where to start to thank you all for the most amazing day of our lives. We were introduced to the hotel just over 10 months ago when a meeting with Karen sold it to me as my wedding venue from that first meeting I was hooked on every aspect of it especially Karen. Nothing has been too much to ask, Karen has advised and helped me so much to make Friday a day we will never forget.

Hi Michelle and Karen,
Sorry about the late response, just winding down from a hectic couple of weeks. The hotel and staff were absolutely amazing in the time leading up to and especially the day of the wedding, it was better than we could have imagined! We had the best night from start to finish.
From the minute we checked in Saturday until we left Sunday we got the best treatment. I didn't catch the name of the guy who we checked in with but it was the same guy when we checked out Sunday and he was more than helpful. Eoin took care of us for the party and I couldn't speak highly enough of him. He was so professional and went above and beyond to make the night run smoothly.
Food was great, a few of our guests actually commented on how nice it was! We were more than happy with our bedroom.

Thank you for your email, we are just back from our honeymoon in Berlin. We thought everything went fantastically. The food was delicious and served promptly. The room was perfect for the ceremony and the acoustics were very good. The team at the spa were lovely and so helpful, and made us look fabulous for the day. The bridal suite was spacious and had a beautiful view of the river from the balcony. The best part of our experience with the Absolute Hotel was with the people. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The booking was handled wonderfully and everyone made us feel so welcome and looked after.
After getting married in Florida we booked the Absolute for our after party. We had a fabulous night, your staff were so professional and I can’t praise tem enough. The manager Eoin was very helpful when we had a minor cake emergency and bar staff were very friendly. The food on the night was delicious and there was more than enough to feed a small army, everyone complimented the room from the chair covering and balloons to games and the lighting. The rooms were immaculate. The breakfast was divine and very much needed after a feed of cosmopolitans. I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone, from my original enquiry to the morning after I have found you a pleasure to deal with.

Myself and Liam have been telling everyone what an amazing day we have had with ye. Everyone on your staff was so wonderful and helpful. Nothing was a problem from start to finish of the planning stages right down to checking out the next day. I loved the fact that the wedding package ye supply was so inclusive....leaves a lot less of worries. Yvonne is an amazing wedding manager....absolutely nothing was a problem. I know we had loads of little bits to be put out on the day, especially with having so many children there, and none of this was problem. The food was delicious and so many of our guests have commented that the food was of restaurant quality as opposed to dinners that you normally get at a wedding. I literally had no worries on the day as Yvonne met me when I was getting my hair done and last thing at night before she left for the evening. The whole event flowed wonderfully and many commented on the organisation of the hotel....there was no pressure to rush through the meal or for the band to start, the whole day was amazing. We put a lock on the bridge next to the hotel which was a lovely photo opportunity and it was lovely to be able to get a whole group photo of everyone on the stairs before dinner. The bridal suite was amazing with rose petals and heart shaped towels and a real romantic feel to it all. Thank you so much to all the staff of the absolute hotel who made our day extremely special and completely stress free :) and a very special thank you to Yvonne and the other managers who were there who helped with the flow of the whole evening.

On Friday 29th August 2014 myself and partner had our civil partnership in Absolute Hotel and was that ever the right choice! From the staff at the front desk and the servers and bar staff, we can not fault them. Professional the whole evening through out.
A big mention to Yvonne O'Looney, the wedding coordinator was fantastic. She would think of things that we never even thought about. Made the whole experience simple and easy for us. To have some who makes the whole process simple and gets what you have been thinking off and turning it into realty and making it even better is a true sign of someone fantastic at their job!
Everyone who attended could not speak highly enough about the food. No one left any behind. A huge compliment to the chef, who offered the same great food at our tasting session, and the chef on the night. When we meet the chef back at food tasting, he was really nice, friendly and explained everything to us and how it will be presented on the day. And true to his word it was this way.
The front house staff were fantastic dealing with all of people who attended and stayed over. They looked after all people and even some cases was able to offer more.
I would highly recommend absolute hotel has anyone's wedding venue. The hotel is trendy and contemporary. You can guarantee getting a fantastic, professional and a wedding of your dreams.
Looking forward to our anniversary!
From Sean and John
Hi Yvonne, I hope you are keeping well? We are just coming around from our great honeymoon. Both Anthony and I want to say how fabulous the day was and both us and all our guests were treated so professionally and kindly by you and all the staff. The feedback is tremendous, with most comments relating to the hotel and what a great service in making our special day even more special. We were blown away by the set-up of the room, everyone praising the layout and especially the centrepieces. I would recommend your hotel and services to all my friends and acquaintances. Thanks again Yvonne for everything. You are an asset to the Absolute. Kind regards Marian and Anthony.

The food was gorgeous. Myself and John loved every bit of it. Could not fault any part of it. We only wished we could have eaten all of it!!!
The Chef was friendly and loved the fact that he came out to us and talked through the menu and how will be served on the day. The staff were fantastic.
The food tasting just proved that we have made the right choice with hotel for our venue.

"Hi guys I would like to say a massive thank you from myself and Gerard, our wedding was fantastic even the staff went above and beyond their job duties to make sure it was a special day. I was really made feel like a princess and every guest was treated with the same care that myself and Gerard got.
So thank you all so much from Mr & Mrs Mulcahy"
"Everything went very well on the 6th. To be honest, I cannot fault the staff or facilities of the Absolute and would have no trouble recommending the place to anyone in the future (as it was recommended to me). The managers on duty never failed to keep us up to date on events, they were flexible and responded very well to any requests. We appreciated, too, that they looked after the flowers and leftover cake for us until we were able to pick them up the next day. Very happy with the way things went. Definitely reinforced our opinion that it is the better place in LImerick and reminded us why we stay there anytime we are there".

Neill and I got married there on the 28th December 2013 and our guests are still coming to us talking about how great the wedding was at the Absolute.
We had the ceremony at the hotel and the room layout was amazing from the fairylight back drop to the chair covers it looked like a fairytale.
The food was gorgeous and everyone complimented how hot and plentiful it was.
Thank you for everything to make our day so special.
