We celebrated our wedding on 25th August 2017 in The Galmont (formerly the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Galway City) and we could not recommend the hotel enough to all bride and grooms to be out there.
The hotel exceeded all our expectations, it is such a beautiful setting and our guests thought so too. The sun shone and we were able to enjoy the veranda overlooking Galway Bay and the Inis Mór Ballroom was decorated so beautifully. The staff were exceptional and no request was too much trouble. They were so attentive to our guests and made us feel very at east and comfortable. Many of our guests travelled from different locations and they were all so impressed with the hotel and the staff, many of them have said they will definitely be returning.
The food was DELICIOUS! Adrian Bane and his team are truly gifted, we have not had one negative comment about the food and I know a few people who had seconds! Everything was served promptly and piping hot and we have to give special thanks to the waiting staff who made this possible.
The bar was well staffed and nobody had to wait to be served too long. We partied late into the night and were looked after all the way.
From day one, we were reassured by the team that organising the wedding from Germany would be no problem and from start to finish, we felt confident that our wedding day was going to be amazing. All of the planning was stress-free thanks to the help and support we received. Nothing was ever a problem or too much trouble.
Thank you all again so much for making our wedding day so special, we are so grateful and will be back very soon!

"As a recently married couple we highly recommend The Hotel as the perfect choice for your wedding venue!
Our wedding experience was a thoroughly enjoyable one, from Day 1 meeting Jean & talking through all the options we never felt under any pressure or obligation to rush into a decision.
Everybody at our wedding was raving about the food & quality of service on the day – the hotel itself looks amazing after its recent renovation & helps create a real vibrant atmosphere on the day.
Given we had a sunny day for our wedding the availability of balcony area to enjoy the fine weather was really enjoyed by all guests.
We also availed of the option to have a barbecue the following day in the Veranda lounge for our families which was another brilliant experience.
Many thanks to Jean & all the hotel staff for making our wedding day so special & enjoyable for us and all our guests. We truly had the best day of our lives."

"Myself and my husband had our wedding reception in The Galmont Hotel (then The Galmont Hotel, Galway) in December 2016 and I can honestly say from start to finish we couldn’t be happier. Jean O’Grady, the wedding co-ordinator, is wonderful to work with and is an absolute credit to the hotel. She is very professional with a lovely warm smile and any details we wanted added or changed were never a problem. She kept in close contact with us throughout the planning and she made it all very easy and calm.
On the wedding day itself we had the best time. The bridal suite is phenomenal and there was tonnes of room for all the bridal party to get their hair and makeup done. The hotel was so generous with food and drink throughout the whole day. There were loads of canapes at the reception, the dinner was fabulous and the wine kept flowing! We stayed eating and drinking and laughing till the wee hours of the morning and had so much fun. Honestly, I could not fault the service we received, it was absolutely flawless.
I have no hesitations recommending to anyone thinking of having their wedding there. You will not be disappointed! We are so glad we chose here as our wedding venue and would like to thank all the staff for making our day so special."

"A sincere thanks to all the staff with particular thanks to Jean O'Grady, our wedding coordinator extraordinaire, and the restaurant manager for their tireless efforts in ensuring our wedding day was the success it was.
The food was 5* and we are still to this day receiving compliments - with one guest remarking it was the best food he has ever been served at a wedding!
Following all the time and effort that goes into planning a wedding and choosing a venue, it's reassuring to receive such good feedback and know you made the right decision.
Planning a wedding from abroad can be quite stressful at times and from the very beginning, Jean's attentiveness and professionalism assured us our plans were in extremely capable hands. We cannot thank Jean and all the staff enough for a job well done. Everything surpassed our expectations."

"We got married at The Galmont Hotel in August 2016. When we were looking at hotels to have our reception after getting engaged the previous July, we met with Jean O’Grady from the Radisson. From the very first minute we met Jean, we knew we had the perfect location and the perfect person to help us prepare for our big day.
In the run up to our wedding day and in the preparations for our big day, Jean was extremely professional and a dream to work with. Without Jean's help we could not have had the fantastic day we had. Jean was very willing to listen to any little concern or idea we may have had and advised us on a perfect solution each time.
From the moment we arrived to the Veranda Lounge for our reception drinks after our wedding ceremony everything was perfect! The Veranda Lounge was brilliantly set up and helped our guests to mingle and get them in to a relaxed and carefree mood, and the canapes were delicious!
The main ballroom was splendidly laid out and the wedding tables looked amazing on the day. The bar was well staffed by brilliant staff and our guests never had to wait long to get a drink. The food was absolutely amazing and our guests are still complimenting us on our venue choice and the meal they received. This is all thanks to the hotel!
We stayed overnight for 3 nights during our wedding weekend and the staff were very attentive to our presence and ensuring our stay was perfect! They could not have done any more for us, we were so impressed by their professionalism!
To Jean and the rest of the staff, thank you so much for making our wedding day all that more special, we will never forget it!"

"We got married on the 11th June 2016 and we decided on The Galmont Hotel as our reception venue - we are so delighted that we did. From start to finish, the service was exceptional. Jean, our wedding coordinator, was a dream! Nothing was too much trouble! She helped us every step along the way in every way that she could! Jean is professional, experienced and made planning our wedding so easy and so much fun! You can tell how dedicated she is to her job and her clients - I cannot praise her enough for everything done for us, from the build up to our day to the end of our wedding day. She made us feel so special and for that we will be forever grateful to her.
The staff...WOW! From start to finish they were fantastic. The venue looked amazing! It had a major WOW factor! Our guests could not praise the food, the venue and the staff enough. The bar staff were excellent! They were catering for a big wedding and no one had to wait or queue at the bar. The managers were very attentive and made sure all went to plan (we felt like all we had to do was turn up). From start to finish I cannot praise the staff enough! We were three days in this hotel and we felt like royalty.
The staff always engaged with us and made our stay so much fun! We didn't want to go home!
I would definitely recommend Jean and the staff to any couple looking for a relaxing, fun and amazing wedding! We would probably insist that you have them! We will never forget our wedding day thanks to Jean and all the staff! They couldn't do enough for us and for that we will be eternally grateful!"

"We cannot praise Jean and the team highly enough for making our wedding day so special. From our first meeting with Jean right through to our departure from the hotel after the wedding, everything was superb. We felt that all of our requests were met with positivity and nothing was an issue, as the team made sure our day surpassed our expectations. Furthermore all of our guests were really impressed with the venue, food and accommodation. We are delighted that we selected this hotel for our special day and would highly recommend it to any couple that would like to have as pleasurable an experience as we did. "

"An absolute pleasure to deal with. The wedding co-ordinator Jean is a credit to the establishment and at every turn she gave us her best.
The attention to detail, service, food and the overall experience as a bride and groom was exceptional.
I am just so pleased with the entire experience and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for making our day so special. I am genuinely so happy we booked the hotel and most of all I couldn't fault anything or any part of the experience. I am so impressed and would highly recommend the hotel for weddings, events and everything in between. "
