    • Well where do we start on how amazing everything was for our wedding on June 1st! From the day we walked in nothing was too much trouble for them. Pat, Norma, Bríd, Steve, Paul, and all the staff were just unreal and went above and beyond for us. We had our ceremony in the hotel too and it was simply amazing how they turned the room around 3 times during the day! We had the best weekend of our lives and we can not thank everyone enough! Our wedding was a family event and our children were let 'free range' from the moment they walked in, we never felt we had to quieten them down or that they were in the staffs way. So many of our guests said how brilliant the staff were, and how nice the hotel was, the rooms are just fabulous. And the food was unreal!! Best roast beef in world!! We had people from overseas stayed 5 nights over the weekend and they had "the best time of their lives". Also gardens there are stunning for photos! Food was delicious the entire 5 days too, not just for the wedding.So we can not say enough thanks to everyone at the Westlodge for giving us the best weekend of our lives! When we got home my husband of 2 days and I were discussing how great the Hotel was and he states "they were amazing, if I ever get married again I'll go there!" so if that isn't a good review I don't know what to say!!!
