    Best day ever

    A brilliant day had by all, thanks in large part to the staff at the hotel who couldn't do enough for us. From the moment we chose The Lord Bagenal to be our wedding venue, to the following day when we left to start the journey as husband and wife, the service has been exceptional. We are really appreciative of Sue's help & guidance planning the big day and Niall's efforts on the day making sure everything went to plan & our guests were well looked after. We highly recommend The Lord Bagenal as a wedding venue.

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Thank you Amanda & Donal for taking the time to review your wedding day at the Lord Bagenal. We wish you a life time of health, wealth & happiness for your future together and look forward to welcoming you back.

    Roseanne & Shane Wedding September 21

    We had our wedding day in September and we had the most magical day. We got so many genuine compliments from our guests. We would highly recommend the hotel to other couples, the packages are good value, the food is superb, the staff are fantastic, the location is beautiful and conveniently only an hour from Dublin. Thanks to all especially Sue.

    Great wedding venue

    Our wedding was cancelled in March 2020 like many weddings. We decided with a bit of uncertainty to go with a date in August 2020. We knew it would be different but we felt it was best to move ahead and get married. The Lord Bagnal did everything they could to ensure we had a great time and we did. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere likewise. The staff were so happy to see a bride and groom in the building again as we were the first since lockdown and we couldn’t be happier how the day went. The day was warm enough to have drinks in the garden and we felt with a smaller number of people we got to speak with them all and thank them for coming to make the day. Great wedding venue

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Thank you Geraldine & Noel for taking the time to review your wedding experience at the Lord Bagenal last week. We were delighted to finally be able to share your day with you both. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness. All the best in the future.

    From the day we booked our big day Sue, Niall and all the staff were welcoming and friendly to the highest standard. We couldn't have asked for more and on the day both myself and my wife were made feel so relaxed and at ease. Our day was as good as it was because of the Lord Bagenal Hotel. Lee & Jenny

    Amazing Venue

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception here in October 2019. The hotel is beautiful the staff are amazing and the food excellent.
    From planning the wedding with Sue to booking the rooms with Michael and the day itself with Niall, everything was coordinated to perfection and ran flawlessly. All of those mentioned and all other staff we dealt with were extremely professional and helpful, they really are lovely people and made our day perfect. We would highly highly recommend The Lord Bagenal Inn for any wedding, the team are absolutely fantastic and when they say “your wedding your way” they really mean it.

    Thank you all so so much.

    Michelle and Danny 140919

    We had our wedding on 14th September 2019 in the Lord Bagenal hotel. From the start Sue the wedding coordinator was so pleasant to deal with and went out of her way every-time. No request was ever a problem for her and she always stood by their saying ‘’your wedding your way’’ Sue’s expertise gave great advice regarding what works best and helped us create the best wedding day ever! Niall the function manager was just amazing on the day. He made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. He went the extra mile ensuring everything was going to plan and we were happy with how the day and night were flowing. All of the hotel staff were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We had so many compliments from guests about the reception, bar and function staff. Food was out of this world. Guests raved about the salmon. Thanks for looking after us. Any future brides and grooms, I would highly recommend The Lord Bagenal for your wedding!

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Michelle & Danny thank you for your glowing review. We are delighted that you had #yourweddingyourway @ The Lord Bagenal. It was a pleasure working and planning all with you both.
    All the best and look forward to seeing you when you are next in

    Thank you to all in the Lord Bagenal Hotel

    We would highly highly recommend this venue to any wedding couple. The management and staff were flawless from beginning to end. They were all so helpful, friendly, attentive and catered to our every need with ease. A special thank you should be given to the wedding planner Sue Baldwin who was second to none. Nothing was too big or too small to ask. General manager Niall and Connie made are day also. Fabulous staff and terrific venue!!!

    What a great day

    We are so thankful to the Lord Bagenel for giving us the best day ever on Friday, From the first phone call I made with Sue which was only a year ago today she could not of been more helpful and she made all the planning and organising so easy I felt so reassured a year was more than enough time to plan our big day!! We Had been to weddings before in the Lord Bagenel so We knew this was our venue for our wedding as everything is always so fab. On arriving to the hotel on Friday we felt like royalty the VIP treatment we got was just amazing, Niall was so reaaauring and had everything planned out so well, Our biggest wish was that the meal was called for half 5 and it would run smoothly and finish at a reasonable time so the band would start after 9 and this is exactly what happened it all ran like clockwork on the day!! The meal was also so nice everyone commented on how good the food was! We cannot thank the Lord Bagenel enough for giving us a dream wedding at such a reasonable price!! Anyone having a wedding with this hotel is in for a big treat.

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Thanks so much for your review of your wedding day. Delighted to know that you had your dream wedding at a such a reasonable price!! You just can't put a price on your wedding day! All the best to you both.

    Niall & Gillian's Wedding

    Our wedding at the Lord Bagenal Hotel in June 2019 was everything we could have wished for and more.
    We had a large wedding but everyone had the space/comfort they needed to enjoy the day. Dinner tables were beautifully set and well situated in good proximity to the top table. The dance floor is large enough if absolutely every guest decides to boogie!
    For the drinks reception, the hotel provided scrumptious canapés, prosecco, beers, scones and tea/coffee. A well designed foyer area has appropriate seating for guests and an area for music to be played.
    Our meal is the most talked about part of the wedding. The quality and standard of food in the Lord Bagenal is exceptional, easily delivered to our 220+ guests. On top of that, the service is quick, efficient and hospitable.
    Having Sue coordinate our wedding was the best decision we made. Nothing was a problem and every request was met with enthusiasm and managed effectively. Sue always gave her professional advice about what works well and how to keep guests happy. We rarely strayed from the advice of the hotel.
    After the band/DJ were finished, we headed for the residents bar, where yet again more delicious food was provided, particularly the bacon baps which I've been dreaming about ever since!
    Those who stayed overnight were very happy with the accommodation, quality and cleanliness of the rooms and service of the staff, and breakfast.
    We cannot praise the hotel enough and so many people have mentioned to us that they would give the Lord Bagenal serious consideration for a wedding which is the greatest compliment we could have got for our wedding.
    Thank you so much to you all at the hotel,
    Love ,
    Gillian & Niall
    (see you for the anniversary dinner!!)

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Absolutely delighted to receive your very complimentary review Gillian & Niall. It was a pleasure to work with you and plan and organise your wedding your way! Thank you and look forward to welcoming you back for your anniversary dinner!
