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

Thanks for your review we are delighted you enjoyed your wedding day
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 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

My wife and I chose the Lord Bagenal Inn as our wedding location for a number of reasons. Firstly, I have been visiting since I was a child and it is one of my family's favourite places to go for dinner in the area. Secondly, their prices and menu were excellent and fitted perfectly into our budget especially with all of the complimentary extras like flowers, center pieces and family suites that they provide. Finally, I have been to family weddings there in the past and enjoyed every second of the care and attention given to the guests not to mention the couples. Both sets of couples also highly recommended the venue. Needless to say, it certainly didn't disappoint! Our guests could not find a fault with the food. The amount of people that commented on the quality (and quantity) of the food let's you know the delicious meal we received. My dad and fellow bride were also delighted with the wine choices and really enjoyed choosing the wines for the evening. Every member of staff we encountered from Sue the wedding planner to Neill who took care of us on the day, the ladies on the front desk and the security guards that let the foreigners use their mobile numbers as a contact number for the taxi's at night, took care of us to the highest level. The venue is beautifully laid out and convenient even for people that are not as mobile as others and again, the staff were there to assist any guests that required it. Close by there are many beautiful locations available for your photos - around the actually hotel, down by the bridge and river or at Garrison House close by. Our wedding album is made even more picturesque because of the hotel. The only thing that made our day better that I could have expected was breakfast the next morning. This is a wonderful wedding location and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Angela & Shannon

Myself and Michael had our civil ceremony and wedding reception here in The Lord Bagenal just gone last Wednesday. You read reviews and can recommend venues highly. Myself and Michael cannot put into words on how highly we recommend The Lord Bagenal. Sue and her team made everything absolutely possible for us down to the very last detail. An excellent coordinator to the highest degree and no question or task on the run up to the wedding and on the day was undone. Laura, Michael and Kate on the front desk, all the phone calls emails, questions I had, all We can say is Thankyou James, Paddy and George, your team of staff are an absolute asset to you. Thankyou.
