Wedding day
As the groom for the wedding, I could not fault this hotel in the slightest, they really helped make our day special. The hotel itself is very picturesque, with stunning views overlooking the beach from the gardens. The staff were so kind and friendly and went above and beyond there duties as hotel staff to help me and my bride throughout the day.
The food was wonderful and staff made sure that all our guests dietary requirements were met as we had vegetarian, pescatarian and persons with nut allergies attending.
From the moment we walked into the hotel 18 months previous, we met with Ron, who showed us round and we were blown away by the welcoming nature of the staff.
We then had Lauren and Danielle as our wedding coordinators throughout the build up. They helped organise everything and were always available when we had any questions.
On the day, Madaline was our point of contact and she made sure anything that we wanted was ready and waiting! Like honestly she was our wonderwoman for the day and sorted everything.
If you are reading this review, with this location in mind as a potential wedding venue, I would highly recommend taking the time to come and view this hotel to see if it mets your requirements, because for us there is no better word to sum up the hotel other than PERFECT.
Thank you again to all the staff. And it is also worth noting that this hotel was a lot more reasonably priced that others we had viewed.

Just sending a wee email to say thank you so much for all your help with the wedding. The day went perfectly! The room looked amazing and the food was unreal! 

Can you please pass on our thanks to all the staff. They were incredible the whole day. Nothing was a bother for them and they were so friendly and helpful. I have never seen such amazing staff at a wedding and all the guests commented on how friendly they were. Laura and Cliona were amazing the whole day. They made sure everything was perfect for us and they did their jobs perfectly. They were so professional all day. Truly fantastic girls. The lodge is lucky to have them as part of the team. 

Everyone from reception to bar staff to breakfast staff to night porters were fantastic. I will leave a review on the website but just wanted to let you know first.

Thank you so much again for making our wedding day so special.

My family is from Ballyliffin, and when we visit we stay at the Ballyliffin Lodge and Spa hotel. Because of the beautiful setting, amazing food, and brilliant service, when we got engaged we knew that we wanted to get married here.  The Wedding Team was so helpful from the start. Nothing was ever too much to ask and every query that we had was answered and satisfied on the same day. They made planning a wedding for nearly 200 people so easy and completely stress free.  
The Wedding Team had been in touch with all of our suppliers and organised the timelines for us, so we just had to turn up on the day. When we arrived after our ceremony we were greeted by Madalaine and she was fantastic. She gave us a quick run-through of what the plan was, organised everyone and put people where they needed to be (bridal party to get ready for the entrance etc) and was on hand all evening to give us a 5 minute 'heads up' on what would happen next, like cutting the cake for example.

We cannot thank Madalaine enough. Not only had the Wedding Team made everything absolutely perfect and exactly how we envisioned our wedding to be, she made the day so seamless and stress-free. We didn't have to think once about where we needed to be or what we needed to do.  All of the bar staff and waiters were absolutely fantastic and our friends and family are still raving about the food. 
We want to do it all again, they really do make all of your dreams come true.

Thank you again, and we will see you soon for our next stay!
