Weddings At The Anner Hotel
Tarin and Eoin
19th October 2018
To any couples thinking about booking the Anner for your big day… DO IT!! We were married on October 19, 2018, and had our reception at the Anner, and it was flawless!! From the moment I met Courtney, our wedding planner, I knew we were in good hands. I was planning our wedding from Canada, and Courtney and all the staff at the Anner made it the easiest process in the world! Everything was taken care of and surpassed our expectations!
Most of our guests from Canada booked a stay at the hotel, and every single person I spoke to could only sing the praises of how fantastic their stay was. All of the staff went over and above to make sure our stay was exceptional.
Dierdre was our main contact for the day, she was so charming and professional! When dinner was served (piping hot!) the showmanship of the staff did not go un-noticed as they would serve the head table in unison, turn and walk out again all in unison! All the meals were served in a timely fashion, without excessive lag time between courses, and it was ALL delicious!!
Marrying my best friend was already going to be a perfect day, but the Anner was the cherry on top. I couldn’t have scripted a more perfect day. I wish I had more words to express how much I appreciated how special they made us feel, how professional they were, and what an amazing experience we had.
You will NOT be disappointed!!
Wedding Celebration of Anne Marie O’Dwyer and Alan Dunne
Saturday the 20th May was the most gorgeous and special wedding day from beginning to end, thanks in no small part to the Anner Hotel Thurles where we held our wedding reception. Maybe it’s because the Anner is a family run hotel that we felt our wedding was as important to the staff and management as it was to us. The staff were always available to chat to us about any of our requests and since we both live a good distance away in Dublin this was really important. The wedding celebrations were amazingly well organised by Courtney who is the most efficient and friendly wedding planner, the general manager Michel Boyle and the hotel owners Michael and Seamus Maher were and still are just lovely to us every time they see us. The hotel itself looks amazing, it’s been beautifully refurbished with tastefully designed reception area, banquet hall and accommodation. The landscaped gardens were ideally situated close to the reception area and provided us with a stunning background for our wedding photographs. The meal was delicious and the entire reception was great fun from start to finish. Ourselves, our families and friends simply had a ball - we couldn't have chosen a better venue and it was exceptional value for money. Thank you so much!

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

The Anner Hotel was the venue for the meeting of Tipperary and Donegal for the wedding of Siobhán Hoare and Michael Friel on the 28th October 2016. All those that made the 6 hour journey from Gortahork in the hills of Donegal have repeatedly commented on how all the staff at the hotel were extremely welcoming, friendly and accommodating from check in to check out. From the moment we went to view the Anner Hotel and met with Courtney,we knew it was the venue for us. The friendly, family run but professional atmosphere meant we instantly fell in love with the venue and all the staff that strive to meet your every need. The day could not have run more smoothly and all our guests continue to comment on the delicious food and wine, excellent staff who went above and beyond to meet their every need no matter how big or small and the beautifully decorated reception room. A special thanks to Courtney and the Maher brothers for all their support and advice and for providing us with the perfect day from beginning to end.
