Weddings At The Anner Hotel
Carol Smyth & Kieran McCormack 26th Feb 2016
Where to begin. We came to the Anner Hotel for the first time 14 days before our wedding having been left high and dry by the venue we originally booked. Having endured 2 of the worst days in the history of planning a wedding our spirits were instantly lifted, initially just by the hotels appearance and then by the calming competence of the wedding planner Courtney Hyland. The 2 weeks that followed were a further testament of her abilities, finding us a celebrant at 8 days notice when the HSE cancelled on us and organising our mouth watering meal tasting all within the shortest time frame ever! No ask was too much for this lady and every call and email was answered so promptly. We spent 3 wonderful nights at the hotel over the course of our wedding and I am only looking for a reason to book in again. Our guests are still raving about the food, especially the lamb shank the chef served up as one of our mains. The service was so smooth and the staff were so attentive, special mention to Dan who served us at the top table. The decor was fantastic, nobody batted an eye when I turned up with boxes of props, in fact they took it all on and left me stress free throughout. The tables were just stunning. On the day itself it rained and we took our photos in the bridal suite which is exquisite and huge, it was a perfect scene, I'm so excited to see them. The second night we had a number of guests stay on and the staff were just as attentive and accommodating of the whole group, the food they put on for us while simpler than the wedding menu was just as delicious and well presented. In terms of professionalism, flexibility and value for money I'm only sorry we didn't find this gem originally, they took on our 180 person wedding at 2 weeks notice and made it a 5 star experience for us and all our guests. I would recommend them to any couple looking for the perfect venue.
