We’d like to thank all the staff from Ballyliffin Lodge & Spa for making our wedding day extra special. From the pre-wedding organisation by Nathan who promptly dealt with all queries and requests to Ricardo’s efficiency and professionalism that made things run smoothly on the day from start to finish. Each and every member of staff were very welcoming both on the wedding day and day after as well as before, during and after the meal. The stunning location the Lodge & Spa played a huge part in making our wedding day beautiful. We have had numerous comments from our guests who travelled not just from Derry but from Scotland, England and USA about the fine detail that was put into making the day a success and the hospitality they enjoyed. We would like to thank everyone for all the help and wish all the staff at the Ballyliffin Lodge & Spa all the best for the future. We look forward to going back.


Thanks again for everything,

We had our wedding here in July 2015 and we could not have been better taken care of. It may be a 4 star hotel but it has a 5 star service, from the moment we booked we were in great hands from the wedding co-ordinators Breda and Roisin, who did everything they could to put us at ease. On the day, the banqueting manager Ricardo and his team were a pleasure, nothing was too much trouble and they made us feel like royalty for the day, we had so many guest complementing the service. And last but not least, Brendan, who looked after us in the restaurant the following night, was a wee star, and made us feel so at home. We can't wait to get staying here again soon, and would definitely recommend to anyone who is thinking of booking for their wedding, or even just a break away, to do it as you won't be disappointed.

To all the staff at the Ballyliffin Lodge,

A huge thank you for helping make our weekend so special.From the moment we booked the hotel last year until we left yesterday everything has been top class. There is a real sense of team work in the hotel. Immediately we knew we were in good hands, the attention to detail and willingness of all staff to help all our guests was truly fantastic. All of our guests have commended how good a wedding it was, from the welcome, rooms, food,staff, everything so thank you from me and Gemma. I cannot recommend yourselves enough and look forward to staying as a guest in the near future.

 

Special thanks to Madeline who attended to myself and Gemma's every request on Friday. The Ballyliffin Lodge are lucky to have such a wonderful set of professional and genuine staff.

One word......UNBELIEVABLE!!

We had our wedding here on October 17th and what can we say other than from day one the wedding coordinators were absolutely unbelievable. We first met with Roisin in Feb'14 and straight away we knew we had choose the prefect setting for our wedding day.
We then had the pleasure of dealing with Nathan and Breda coming up to our wedding and there was nothing that we requested that was not followed through, nor was anything any bother to the team. 
On the day we had the pleasure of dealing with Ricardo and Madeleine who looked after us on arrival and the catering staff. They provided us and our guests with 5* treatment, the meal was delicious, seconds was offered and there were staff behind the top table to get us anything we requested.
We were completely blown away on the day by the professionalism of all the staff members at the Spa and Lodge. Overall, this hotel and staff are amazing. They done absolutely everything in their power to ensure our day ran smoothly. 
For any bride looking to book a wedding in a setting that will do everything possible to give u the day you have always been dreaming about then look no further. Myself and my Husband were completely lost for words regarding how the whole wedding team looked after us and the effort they put in to give us the best day of our lives. 
Everything was perfect from start to finish, Thank you to all. We are so glad we had our wedding here.

Hi to all the staff at the lodge. I have been meaning to write to you all since our wedding on the 30th July 2015 and I’m only getting around to it now. We truly wanted to thank each and every one of you for helping to make our day so very special. The support from the moment we booked through Groupon right through to the warm welcome we received were absolutely second to none. I can’t express how much we valued the staff and their professionalism from start to finish and I want you to know that nothing went unnoticed and appreciated. The food was amazing,totally perfect, tasty warm and well presented. In addition to this the service was excellent, so well planned and again professionally served by very helpful and accommodating staff. The restaurant, toilets and entire hotel was spotless,the bridal room and executive suites were just out of this world!! Having worked many years in many hotels worldwide, I have a fair idea and very familiar with how much work goes on behind the scenes from room service to kitchen work, I myself have done the lot! I worked in 5* hotels and even cooked President Clinton his breakfast in one hotel. I really want each and every person to know we appreciated absolutely everything, it was an amazing day and you all made this happen for us. We worked hard in such a short time to arrange the wedding but you truly made it brilliant. Thank you from the pit of our hearts-the Ballyliffin is now my favourite hotel in Ireland and I cannot wait to get an opportunity to come down again soon! Please pass this message to Mary next door and tell her I appreciated that she called to the beach to wish us well!!!

Just wanted to send through an email of thanks for the wonderful service we received for our wedding 17th April 2015.  All the staff were very helpful on the run up to the wedding and on the day of the wedding.
The meal was exceptional and a lot of positive comments, family are planning a return visit by all accounts, and hopefully will be added to the list for few further engagements I expect over the year.

Please pass on my thanks to all involved.

We had our wedding reception at the Ballyliffin Lodge and Spa on the 11th May. Everything was perfect and all of the staff couldn't of been more helpful, from bar staff to the hairdressers and make up artists. Ricardo who attented to all guests throughout to make sure everything was ok deserves a special mention as he was really professional and nothing was a problem. All of our guests commented on the staff and how good the food was and the standard of the service provided. I couldn't of asked for anymore from the Ballyliffin Lodge

 Just a quick thank you to yourself, Ricardo and all the staff following our wedding on the 22nd May. Everything was perfect from start to finish, I can't even explain how happy we are with everything. So glad we decided to have our wedding there.

Joanne and myself Cormac picked the Ballyliffin lodge and Spa for our wedding reception after visiting it the day we got engaged even though we are from Belfast. 

We thought the place was a great location and the staff were very friendly the day we got engaged and even give us complimentary desserts and champagne. 

Once we booked the reception with the wedding planners Breda and Roisin they made it so easy for us and were very friendly and extremely helpful, nothing was any hassle which was great as we lived in Belfast. 

When the big day came all the staff were very welcoming, helpful and made us feel so at ease. From Ricardo who looked after us upon entry to the chauffeur driver Paddy who was good craic and helped us pick a different location for photos we didn't know about.

The catering staff were excellent and Madeleine who was in charge of them provided 5 star treatment for us and our guests. The guests were raving about the quality of the food and service and the class of the waiters lifting the cloches of the head tables plates.

Even though we have mentioned a few names on here all the staff deserve so much credit and we can safely say that this is the place to have your wedding reception, have a meal, stay over or even just have a drink. Our guests even said was the best reception they have been at.

Once again a big thanks to Ricardo, Roisin, Breda, Madeliene and all the staff at Ballyliffin. Was the best day of our lives.

Perfect location for your big day.

We recently had our wedding at the lodge on 11 July 2015 and we cannot express how fantastic it was. The staff were superb at the bar, reception and wedding team!! Particularly Ricardo and his guys. They were so tentative to all our guests which made the day run without a glitch. All of the small touches meant so much and didn't go without notice.

The food was absolutely gorgeous as usual and all of our guests commented on how good it was.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day and could honestly not recommend Ballyliffin Lodge enough. We can’t wait to get back again soon as we are always made to feel so welcome. 

Thanks again to everyone
