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

By Helena and Peter Shaw, on 20 Oct 2019Date of Wedding - 11 Oct 2019

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.

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!

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.

By Ciara and Martin Haughney, on 30 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 26 Jul 2019

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.

Niall & Gillian's Wedding
Venue Service

By Gillian Doyle, on 20 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2019

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!!)

fantastic experience

By Liz Healy, on 14 May 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Apr 2019

In the lead up to our wedding we dealt with Sue and she went through everything in detail but it didn't take too much time to do this. She makes it sound so easy and she is obviously really well experienced at managing weddings. Indeed brides are advised by online forums to check x,y and z with the hotel, There was nothing to bring to the hotels attention. On the day the hotel looked fab, the atmosphere was lively, the staff were fast, accurate and very welcoming. There was flowers everywhere, as my family arrived first with baskets and bits, these were taken from them at the front door. Guests and family all remarked how lovely and spacious the hotel bedrooms were. Guests loved the food and with Sues help we were delighted with the menu they created for us. There really was no worries or concerns with the lord bagenal. Niall on the day fully took on the event and ushered us and reminded us of all the parts to include-other wise we would have stayed chatting to guests all day and forgot to do the customs-wedding cake etc. Niall was a gem on the day and always on hand to make sure we were happy, comfortable etc. The residents bar was really welcoming and the lord bagenal really came across as welcoming, generous with their time, accurate to the details so a huge thank you. We really feel like we got great value for money also. Thanks again to all the hard work and your great service.
