Dear Ray, Jenny and all staff,

I just wanted to thank you all so much for the fantastic day you made for us on our wedding day. It was an absolutely fantastic day. From start to finish we experienced nothing but professionalism from all of your team. The staff were so approachable and kind and no matter what request we had it was always met! All our guests were extremely happy with the day and really loved their experience in the Abbey Court.  Our reception room looked absolutely beautiful and was so elegant. It was exactly how I had always wanted it to be. Thank you so much for that.

On personal note we would like to thank you so much for all your patience, time and understanding when it came to planning our special day. You all made the planning more relaxed for us and made sure that we had our special day. I would highly recommend the Abbey Court to anyone for their special day or any special events in their life. It is a wonderful hotel with wonderful staff. Thank you all so much for ensuring we and all our family and friends had a wonderful day for our special day.

Love, Mai & Dave

Jody & Karen

Jody & I want to thank you and everyone in the hotel for helping to make our wedding day the most special day ever. 
You, Ray,Breda Sheppard and Dave in particular were absolutely amazing. Ye made us feel so special and anything we asked for was not a problem. Ye all went above and beyond our expectations and we are so appreciative for that. We got lots of little tips from you and Ray which really helped and on the day Ray was absolutely amazing. Everything down to the last detail was organised to the highest standard and Ray could not have done enough for us on the day. Breda was also amazing and everyone on the top table was so well looked after. The food was absolutely amazing and the afters food went down a treat. People are still talking about the food so our biggest compliments to the Chef and kitchen staff. There was lots of people there that had never been in the Abbey court before and they were all well impressed. 
Thanks again for everything ye did for us. We were so so happy with the way everything went and I hope you will pass on our thanks to everyone who was there on the day. Jody & Karen

Claire & Sean

We had our wedding reception in the Abbey Court at Christmas. We could not recommend the hotel highly enough. Before the wedding Imelda, Eileen and Jen were so helpful. They could not do enough for us and made everything so easy. I never got stressed about anything as they had absolutely everything under control. I have been to so many great weddings in the Abbey Court so I knew the day would go smoothly. But my expections were completely surpassed! The service was second to none. I will never forget the attention that was given to me (the bride). During the meal either Ray or Breda were there for every single thing I might need, before I even realised myself! The food was 5 star quality. The amount of guests that commented on the food was a testiment to the quality. And all the extra touches for the bridal table were very much appreciated. The fanfare with the presentation of our food was just brilliant! We kind of felt like celeberties for the day! The ballroom was decorated so elegantly. And the huge Christmas trees in the ballroom and in the lobby were absolutely beautiful. Ray is made for the job and the Abbey Court hotel are very lucky to have him over seeing the weddings. To say that Ray, Eileen and the rest of the staff go above and beyond the call of duty is an understatement. They made our wedding day just perfect! We cannot thank them enough. Claire and Seán

Denise Duggan

- "Hi Imelda,
I just wanted to say a huge huge thank you to you and all the staff, everything really was just perfect for our wedding. From the moment we arrived it was just amazing. 
The food on arrival went down a treat with the guests. The meal was unbelievable, I am getting great feedback from the guests since the wedding on how amazing the food was. A huge well done to Chef David and his staff, they honestly pulled out all the stops.
Ray was his usual amazing self, not that I expected anything less but he really is the best so brilliant at his job and of course his side kick Breda was so attentive.
We were really just so happy with absolutely everything, everything was perfect. I am so happy we decided to go with the Abbey Court, I mean why would you bother putting your guests to the trouble of travelling anywhere, when in my opinion we have the best wedding venue on our doorstep.
Again, you were all a pleasure to deal with, I will drop a card down at some stage, that could take me another month, for now just wanted to say a huge thanks. Keep the amazing work up." Denise Duggan

Steve & Fiona

- "Thanks and gratitude to Imelda and Ray and all the staff of the hotel - both front of house and behind the scenes - for making our day so memorable and special. I had visions of how the day would go but my visions fell way short of how the day actually went! Everybody commented on how great the place was for the ceremony and the meal and how good and plentiful the food was! We got a lot of good words said about the food and everybody also said how lovely and friendly the staff were too. A fabulous day and it is a credit to you all at the hotel. .." Steve & Fiona


- "A big thank you to Imelda and all the staff of the hotel for looking after us so well on our wedding day on Sept 27th - both before the big day and the day itself. Our guests were so complimentary of the food and the level of service. We had a fabulous day! The Guinness and onion soup went down a storm by the way!! Thanks again for all your help in planning and coordinating. It made all the difference and its truly appreciated." Lorraine

Brendan & Niamh

"We had our wedding function in your hotel on Feb 16. We want to compliment the hotel on providing us with a fantastic day/night everything was perfect. We have had great feedback from many of our guests who had a wonderful day (many of the guests who travelled could not get over the standard of service or the quality of the food). This of course would not be possible without your staff who made the day, Imelda in the run up to the wedding was so accommodating and efficient and made my job as the groom fairly hassle free. On the day Breda Sheperd in the dining room/John O'Gorman in the bar and David Hogan as night manager all went out of their way to make things run smoothly. Of course then you have Ray who is just so truely outstanding at his job and ensured everything was in place for us to have a wonderful day. As somebody who has a business in the town it is great to have the Abbey Court going so well in these difficult times as it vitally important to the continued development of Nenagh. So again we would lke to thank you and your staff for a wonderful day." Brendan and Niamh Gavin

Our Daughter's Wedding Day

I would like to thank staff of Abbey Court hotel for the truly magnificent service we got on the 9th/10th July 2016 for the wedding of our daughter Celina. The professional and courteous service was second to none. I have to mention Eileen who planned the wedding and left nothing undone to make it a memorable day. Also special thanks to Ray who looked our every need on the day, to Breeda in the dining room and also special thanks to Paraic who did everything possible for us on the tasting night and the day after wedding. We were overwhelmed with the attention to detail and all your kindness, never to be forgotten. We look forward to our next event in Abbey Court.
Kind regards

Breeda and John Long (parents of bride)
