Beautiful Wedding Venue

I was at the SHH for a wedding in the first week of November and we were very impressed with the venue. Unlike the typical grande celtic tiper style hotels this place is very unique and quaint with french style lush interiors and fabulous food. The bride had about 140 at the wedding and it felt very intimate. Lovely pre dinner drinks in the bar - punch was fab - lovely cocktail bar. Excellent 4 course meal and friendly staff. Would recommend for any brides to be to check this place out. There are maybe only 20 roooms but there is lots of accomm in the town which the hotel staff will help you a arrange including cottages accross the road in the Borris Castle.
