"Many thanks for everything last Friday. We both had an amazing time. All your staff were great. Compliments to the chef on a wonderful meal. The waiting staff were fantastic and very friendly as were the staff in the bar later on. Thanks a mill for setting the ceremony room, it made it so romantic and that was our wish for the day. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. The room for the dinner and dancing was fantastic and everyone was impressed with the setting. Honeymoon Suite was lovely with fantastic views. Thanks again for all your help and support from the beginning. Caroline & Michael Brennan - 15th Feb 2013
"When I was looking to book my wedding I looked at a few hotels but as soon as I went to the Green Isle I just loved the interior of the hotel, it was so stylish and currently decorated and the staff were lovely. I met with Suzanne and she was lovely, she showed us around and gave us prices and couldn't really help us enough........The day of my wedding I couldn't have been much happier, the room was decorated just great and everybody was delighted with it. I also thought it was georgous that Suzanne had put lovely lanterns with candles in the hallway it made the entrance really romantic. Also our backdrop and the skirt for the wedding table I had inquired about prices and they were about €400, Suzanne organised this and my two throne chairs as extras with my wedding package. I was delighted I decided to spend my special day with all the generous and kind staff in the Green Isle and I would do it all again tomorrow." Donna & Gareth Kelly - 14th February 2013
"What does a bride & groom look for when picking out a wedding venue, well in this day of recession lol its value for money first and location second....I know a lot of people will think of the motorway behind the hotel and it was something that I had considered but please take my word for it, you can't even hear the road when in the hotel or even when you are in the drive way but don't take my word for it please go and see the hotel.
We decided to book our wedding for 27th December 2012, we done the usual trawl through all the hotel's listed as wedding venues and visited alot of them. We went from Dublin to Carlow to god only knows where and well nothing seem to fit, sure they were in great locations, prices were good but they didn't seem all that exciting or have the warming welcoming feeling to them and that was very important to us as we were having a Christmas wedding. We were looking for a venue we could walk into and feel welcome and most importantly like a bride and groom, at others venues we were pawned off with the receptionist showing us around and just given price lists.
We were at our wits ends trying to find a hotel within our budget driving around in circles when my mother suggested we try the Green Isle Hotel as she was at a wedding there before and found it very good and food lovely as well, and so on her advice we rang the hotel and made an appoinment with Suzanne McCabe, their wedding co-ordinator. From the minute we walked into the hotel and met with Suzanne we knew we had found "our special hotel", we felt like a 'bride and groom' straight away. The friendliness of the staff is second to none and the hotel itself is spotless inside and out.
The menus that were shown were very reasonable and very good, we were allowed to change one or two things on it (we changed the dessert) they were evenso good as to supply a separate dessert for the parents of the bridal party without charge and it was simply no hassle for them. The food was lovely and piping hot and everyone was asked if they wanted more food, evening food was plentiful and also piping hot.
In the year coming up to the wedding I have to say no matter what time I rang or emailed or no matter how many silly questions or changes I wanted I always got the same answer "that is no problem".
We wanted a winter / Christmas theme wedding and they went out of their way to make it sooooooo special I can honestly say I cried when I walked into the room and saw the way they had done it...tears of happiness is all the bride wants on her wedding day....They had the room turned around in less than 20 minutes in the evening for us and the guests were escorted back with ease into the function room (something that I was very anxious about).
All I can say is that if I could do it all again I wouldn't hesitate to have our wedding in the Green Isle Hotel with the wonderful staff and a brilliant wedding team, especially Suzanne who truly is an asset to their wedding team and to any bride, she even went as far as to text me the night before our wedding to wish us good luck even though she was off work and the hotel was closed as it was St Stephens Night...
They made our dreams and wishes come through. Ada & Dermot Glanville - 27th December 2012
"Our wedding at the Green Isle Hotel was everything we hoped it would be. The staff went out of their way to make our day memorable and extra special. All the guests commented on how nice the food was and how the staff were quick between each course. Alot of our guests booked rooms for the night and were very pleased with the hotel rooms. Suzanne was great at contacting us with all issues on the run up to our wedding. Would recommend it as a wedding venue...Smiles all round :)) " Celine & Alan Jones - 10th September 2010
