See what our couples have to say.....
When we went looking at wedding venues, The Strand Hotel was the first hotel we viewed and we were just wowed! From then on, no other hotel could compare. Our co-coordinator was Chloe and working with her was an absolute pleasure. She was always there to answer our queries (no matter how stupid they sounded!). She went above and beyond to make sure our day was everything we wanted it to be, even had a few surprises thrown in for good measure. We met Tom, the Head Chef, at our menu tasting and the was a total pro. We knew we were in good hands and that the food would be delicious and it was! On the day, all the staff were so professional and friendly - the servers & bar staff at the drinks reception and in the ballroom & John who looked after us from the minute we arrived. From the beautifully decorated ballroom to the fabulous bridal suite, the wow factor never ended. We loved every minute of our wedding reception in this hotel and couldn't recommend it highly enough.

We would like to thank you and all the staff we meet on our wedding day for all your help. Also special shout out to Deirdre in Reservations who was extremely helpful with sorting out the rooms. We and our guests were treated in a professional and friendly manner throughout. The ceremony room was laid out beautifully. Our suite was stunning and the meal was fabulous. I look forward to returning to the Strand hopefully in not to distant future. Annette & Denis - February 2019
From the moment Tadhg and I stepped foot in the Limerick Strand Hotel we knew that there was no other place we would have our special day. The City Suite was perfect for our Humanist Ceremony and the Shannon Suite was lovely and festive for our wedding dinner. Aishling and Olivia were so professional and friendly to deal with and there were no requests that were too big for them! Our menu tasting was just amazing and we knew there and then we had made the right choice! The food on our wedding day was beyond our expectations and everyone complemented the meal and the service and still talk about how great the food was!
The whole day and even the BBQ the following day was just so relaxing and so well organised! Our suite was the icing on the cake and we lovely chilling out on the balcony the morning after our wedding enjoying the beautiful views of Limerick city. We didn't have to worry once over the whole weekend as we knew we were in great hands at The Strand! If we could do it all over again we wouldn't change a thing! Thanks so much 🙂 Mr and Mrs O'Connor x Edel & Tadhg - December 2018
To Chloe, Manager Dave, the event Team, Catering and housekeeping Team at the Strand.
I had been searching for some time for a location that would offer the type of elegant, fun, classy, warm and subtle sophistication that we wanted to renew our vows with our new blended family.
It was worth the search! Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful warm atmosphere for our Vow renewal in the amazing Strand City View suite!
From the moment we engaged with you all, Dave & I found it a pleasure. Choosing from the fantastic selection of menus on offer to keep me on track and helping with all the planning made the day everything we had hoped it would be. The impressive suite we were provided to get ready overlooking the Shannon, getting ready while sipping bubbles and having our makeup and hair done set us up for the day ahead.
The guests were full of compliments on the whole day. Compliments to the chef and in particular for the warm duck salad which was superb. Wine was flowing and the service was excellent.
Having everything from the laidback Ceremony hosted by my Sister, to the Champagne ice bar all across one floor made it just so relaxed. It all looked stunning and the views are unrivalled and is made for great pictures. Our beautiful blended family and friends all had such a good time, the kids and teenagers had their space to chill together, babysitting was catered for. The adults had a ball. What more can I say... we had a total blast!
Deepest thanks to all the Limerick Strand Team for creating a special day with us. Tracey & David Lynch - December 2018
We booked our wedding with The Strand Hotel roughly round 12 months before our big day. From the day we entered the Four Star Hotel which is conveniently located in the heart of Limerick over looking the river Shannon, we felt so welcome and had a lovely detailed chat with Olivia our Wedding Co Ordinator. Olivia was a pleasure to deal with and nothing was a problem with any request we may have had. She assured us of a top class service and the hotel went over and above for our special day. The Management and staff made our day such a special occasion for us, the courtesy and kindness shown to us and our guests was overwhelming . Our meal was mouth watering which our guests remarked on throughout the day and still talk about. From start to finish(right through till the early hours) the atmosphere, craic and that special feeling was shown to us 110%. I couldn’t recommend The Strand highly enough, their attention to detail, was mind blowing. Their professionalism is to a very high standard and I can assure any couple thinking of booking their special day with the Strand will not be disappointed. I have visited the hotel on numerous occasions since and they still remember us on first name basis, and the welcome is heart warming. Looking forward to our next stay already!
Bernie & Michael - September 2018
We booked our wedding at Limerick Strand Hotel. To say that Olivia and the staff were amazing is an understatement. Everything down to the smallest detail was absolutely beautiful. The city view suite looked stunning and perfect for our group of people with stunning views of Limerick City being the backdrop. The food was beautiful for which we've had so much great feedback. Thank you again to everyone at the Strand for making our day a special day that we will never forget. Evelyn & Peter - September 2018
I just wanted to thank you so much for everything! We had a fantastic day and the hotel was fabulous! Everyone has said how fantastic the food was and the roof top reception went down a huge treat!! We enjoyed every minute of it and of course it went way too fast but we knew that would happen!! So again thanks a million to you, John and everyone at The Strand and hopefully see ye again soon! Ann-Marie & Oisín - September 2018
What can we say about The Strand Hotel Limerick as a wedding venue . . . Stunning!!!
From our first appointment to view it as our wedding venue to our wedding day Chloe Fahy has been amazing, answering all of our queries promptly to create our dream wedding.
On the day itself we couldn't have imagined how beautiful the Library Room for our Civil Ceremony was going to be and as for the City Suite . . . It was absolutely stunning, beautiful views over the river shannon which all our guests enjoyed!!
Chloe was so helpful on the morning of our wedding helping me and my bridesmaids get ready and making sure we were all ok.
The meal itself was outstanding, plenty of food for everybody, we also ordered a pig on a spit for our evening guests which I would highly recommend, it went down a treat!! We are still receiving compliments on the food from all of our guests!!
John Kelly who took care of our wedding on the day was fantastic, answering any questions we had and ensuring our day ran smoothly.
We would highly recommend The Strand Hotel to any Bride and Groom looking for a venue as they make your wedding day vision a reality!!
We cannot thank Chloe and John enough, they are a credit to The Strand Hotel,
Kristeen & Arek Muszynski - August 2018
On the 13th July this year my husband and I had the pleasure of celebrating our nuptials at the Stand Hotel Limerick. The day was sensational and it was down to the Strand for this. The venue itself is marvellous but it is the people that made it magical. I can not thank Chloe or John enough for our flawless day.
The day itself was such a success and a huge hit with all my guests because of the run up to the wedding and the high standards of The Strand. I would view myself as a hard woman to impress, precise in what I want and extremely stressful when it comes to minor details.
I was not this person on the day of my wedding. I was able to enjoy every moment and not a single thing was out of place. This I accredit to Chloe for ensuring that my vision had come to light. The service that Chloe provided was next to none. She was always available, provided excellent advice and a warm welcome. By the time the wedding came around I felt I had gained a friend.
The atmosphere, bedrooms, decor, silver service, food and bar staff were fantastic. All my guests were attended to with the same attention to detail as the top table was. Food hit all tables within 13 minutes of the top table being served which wasn't an easy feat considering the size of our party. At no point was a table left waiting. All the suppliers I had organised for the day were greeted and aided by the managers of the Strand and this led to the seamless running of the day.
There is so much more I could say but nothing will justify just how fabulous the Strand hotel is. Any bride would delight in organising their wedding with them and any groom will be chuffed on the day. My guests were truly impressed, I was delighted and the memories are forever. I am fortunate enough to have made the right decision choosing them and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Thank you, Mr and Mrs Ryan - July 2018
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Limerick Strand Hotel for the most magical wedding day (and day after!) From the minute we went in there and spoke to Chloe and Aisling we knew it was the place for us. The hotel management and staff made sure we didn't have to worry about a thing. Our guests commented on the amazing food, friendly staff, and beautiful touches (Our initials in stones on the balcony, our wedding photo on the menu, the ice-cream cart and the cloche service for all tables, among many others). They really went the extra mile and we had the most amazing day. Many thanks to John, Chloe and the rest of the Team. We look forward to returning to the hotel for many visits and occasions. ♡
Darragh & Amy Keane July 2018
We booked the Strand Hotel for our wedding on the 30th June 2018 and received nothing but a 1st class service on our big day.
From the City View Suite where we held our Ceremony with its panoramic views and fairytale feel, to the Shannon Suite room with its perfect layout & decorations from the candelabra centerpieces to the blossom trees, it can only be described as breathtaking, and it was more than we could ever have envisioned for our Wedding day.
The venue is so impressive and there was no shortage of parking and accommodation. Our guests had an excellent choice rooms, from single & double rooms to luxury suites….. The close proximity to Limerick City is also worth mentioning as it was fantastic for many of our guests that had travelled from the UK and other parts of the country.
Our wedding planner Chloe Fahy can only be described as an excellent and is a real asset to the Strand Hotel, She went through every fine detail with us and nothing was too much for her, she was amazing and she made us feel so special. Chloe was always contactable and responded to every little question I had no matter how silly it might have been….Every detail was covered and executed to the highest standard.
We would also like to say a huge thank you to the executive chef Tom Flavin for serving us up one of the best 5 course meals we have ever had the pleasure of eating and of course we have to mention John who spent his day shadowing me from the minute I arrived in the hotel. He was by my side throughout the day ensuring everything ran like clockwork. John kept me calm on my walk towards the aisle and ensured the drinks reception and everything else on the day ran smoothly, John really did attend to our every whim and he was always there beside us if we needed the slightest thing.
The staff were so helpful and the service was incredible, all of our guests felt like they got a 5 star service experience and were made feel most welcome.
Everyone was blown away by the professionalism, quality and service this hotel provided. We loved the fact that The Strand is child friendly and the staff were fantastic with our kids on the day.
We cannot thank Chloe and John enough for all they did for us on the run up to our wedding and the main event itself, it was truly amazing from start to finish. We on would Highly Recommend The Strand Hotel for any Couple who are thinking of getting Married.
Elva Aherne & Trevor Cusack - 30th June 2018
We would like to say a big thank you to all the team who had anything to do with our wedding at the Limerick Strand Hotel on Friday, May 4th 2018. The place looked absolutely fantastic and was over and above what either of us could ever had expected.
We opted for a humanist ceremony in the Shannon Suite which went off without a hitch. We had large numbers but can safely say it wasn’t an issue for the hotel for the turnaround, they managed to turn around the room after the ceremony into an amazing Wedding Reception in the space of an hour or so while we had the drinks reception. The drinks reception was in the City View Suite – we were lucky to have a bright day but even if it was raining I don’t think it would have mattered because of the beautiful views. The Shannon suite when we came back down not only looked outstanding but the service throughout was also outstanding.
There are two things that people need for a great wedding, a good band and excellent food and we were lucky to have both. We received lots of compliments from our guests on the food quality and the service! Last but not least, our wedding coordinator Aishling was amazing from start to finish, she was so easy to deal with and very accommodating and professional with all the arrangements, she offered recommendations on the band and ceremony music and we were so glad for her advice for all of the small things that you could easily forget. We knew we were in safe hands from day one and cannot thank her enough!
All of our guests had a fantastic day and night and we’re very happy that we chose Aishling and the Limerick Strand Hotel for our Special Day!
Michelle & Mark Sheehan May 4th 2018
We would both like to extend a huge thank you to Aisling and John for all their hard work and expert advice leading up to our wedding. Aishling was so easy to work with and could not do enough to help and guide us through the process of planning a wedding!! Also a big thanks to Dave and Dermot on the day who made everything so easy and enjoyable whilst remaining professional and on hand throughout the day.
The City View Suite looked absolutely spectacular for our ceremony and also for our reception. All our guests commented on how beautiful the City View Suite was and what an amazing job the hotel had done. Compliments to the chef for serving outstanding food, again all our guests commented on the high quality. We also must thank all the other staff on the day, they were so polite, professional and helpful.
We both had an amazing wedding day and that was down to the Strand Hotel making everything so beautiful and perfect for us!!! We wish that we could do the day all over again, it was truly a most beautiful and amazing day!! Thank you again to everyone who was in involved you gave us a really memorable day.
Danielle & Brian May 2018
The Limerick Strand Hotel was always the place Kerron and I wanted to share our special day with our family and friends. Chloe was fantastic from the word go, She made sure every little detail was taken care of and always was a phone call away if we needed anything sorted. Dealing with her made us feel very relaxed, as we were a young couple and fairly nervous about the whole wedding and wanted to go to a venue that made us feel welcome. The food was phenomenal and the staff were very attentive and kind. We had our ceremony there, which was decorated beautifully and our meal in the city view suite. The views were stunning from the balcony and the perfect spot for photos! I couldn't recommend it more to anyone looking to share their special day there. It has the look, great food, and amazing staff who keep you smiling and laughing and calm all along the way. Thank you Chloe and staff for making our day as special as it was. Would relive it all over again tomorrow!, All Our Many Thanks,
Shauna and Kerron May 2018
Our wedding coordinator, Chloe, was an absolute pleasure to work with. Chloe listened to our vision for the day and understand our requirements; we wanted an intimate ceremony and reception followed by a big party in the evening for all our relatives and friends. The hotel did everything they could to make this vision a reality. All our guests commented on what a fantastic venue the Strand Hotel was, helped in great measure by the fantastic views of the city offered by the wrap-around balcony. We were lucky that there was a fantastically bright full moon on the night and the river Shannon never looked so beautiful. Our guests also commented on the top quality and variety of the food on offer at the evening buffet. It was a very special day for us and the journey to that day was made as enjoyable and stress-free as possible by the hotel. We must also mention the amazing suite that was ours for the night; everything we could have possibly wished for was there – a spacious and luxurious lounge area, champagne on ice, chocolate strawberries, rose petal covered master bed and a balcony offering again the most wonderful views of the city and the river Shannon. Sincere thanks to Chloe and the Strand Hotel team for making our day so special.
Georgina & Colm March 2018
Des and I were lucky enough to celebrate our wedding in The Strand Hotel on Friday 2nd March 2018. Chloe along with all The Strand staff were so friendly, welcoming and professional. They could not do enough for us and helped us achieve a very memorable and special day for us and our guests. The food was exceptional with many of our guests sharing compliments on it. We had a beautiful day and one that was made all the more special by The Strand Hotel. We wish we could do it all over again!
Des & Tracey March 2018
Thanks again Aishling to you and to your colleagues, to all the staff, our guests spoke very highly of their stay, the bedrooms, the food and mostly the reception so our compliments to them. Anne & John 16.02.18
Thanks to Aishling and all the staff at Strand Hotel for making our wedding day so special for us. Aishling was so helpful in the lead up to the wedding nothing was a problem. When we saw the hotel on our wedding day it was really beyond our expectations. From the decor to the food everything was just fantastic. All our guests are still talking about the rooftop drinks reception and the exceptional food on the night.
Chantel and Patrick - December 2017
From start to finish, Olivia, John and the entire team at the Strand were a pleasure to deal with. No task (or wedding!) is too big, and their attention to detail is next to none. Their vast experience in event and wedding planning meant we knew we were in capable hands from the start, and we trusted them to look after ourselves and all our guests on our big day. We could not recommend them more.
Michelle & Diarmuid - 31/12/17
We would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at the Limerick Strand Hotel for a wonderful wedding day. We celebrated our wedding on the 28th of December and it was the perfect venue for a winter wedding, it looked amazing with all the elegant Christmas decorations! Our wedding coordinator Chloe was amazing from start to finish, she was so easy to deal with and very accommodating and professional with the pre-wedding arrangements. We knew we were in safe hands! We also must mention the food which was an important factor for us and the quality and service was exceptional. We received many compliments from our guests on the food! We had a fantastic day and very happy that we chose the Limerick Strand hotel.
Mags & Dave – 28/12/17
I want to say a huge Thank You to yourself and all the Strand staff who had anything to do with our day on Nov 25th. The place not only looked outstanding but the service was also outstanding. The day ran so smoothly from start to finish and we are so grateful. The food was also tremendous and many people commented on this so please do pass on my compliments to the chef.
I believe all the visitors to Limerick got a great impression of the City and the Strand had a big part to play in this. Also lots of my friends commented on how lovely it was to get married so close to home and I think some of them will for sure think twice before rushing off elsewhere to book a wedding venue now.
Karen & Matt 25/11/17
We cannot say often enough what a great day we had for our wedding and everyone agreed. The food, the room, everything was perfect.
We couldn't have asked for any more from all the team At The Strand. Every single member of staff, from yourself and John, to the young guy in the residents bar who kept us going until the small hours, was so helpful and kind it made our day and night so easy. Nothing was to much trouble.
We knew when we were booking The Strand, that it was a great hotel and it more than lived up to our expectations. We would love to send you on some photos from our day. We will be collecting our album in the next week, so will email you them as soon as we have them.
Audrey and Liam - May
Thank you so so much for everything you and the strand hotel did for us. We had the best day of our lives and we would not change a single thing! The strand hotel was the decision we made in relation to our wedding even if it was only 3 months before the big day! All our guests loved the hotel, food and service too. It really was a five star experience. Thank you for being the best wedding coordinator Mairead, you made our planning so easy!
Gary & Natasha – March
I just want to write a quick note to say thank you so much for all your help with our wedding, it was an amazing day for us and you and your team really did make the day that bit more special as they had everything covered. I was particularly impressed with Dave and John the operations guys, they really handled everything in their stride and their professionalism is a credit to themselves and the Strand Hotel. Please pass my thanks also to the kitchen staff, the food was beautiful and we are still receiving complements on it. Overall, i would recommend the strand as a wedding venue to anyone that was considering picking a venue, from start to finish everything was handled with ease and professionalism.
Johnathan & Eibhlín – March
Just a quick email to thank you and all the staff at the strand hotel, for helping to make our wedding last Friday, so perfect. Everything was great, and every person was so helpful, in every area and aspect of the hotel. We couldn't have wished for our day to have gone any better. We'll be recommending you to as many people as we can.
Liam & Audrey – March
We just wanted to say thanks for everything with our wedding on 12th September and for all your help. Every aspect of the reception was brilliant, everybody said the hotel and the meal were excellent and we both couldn't have been happier with the way the day went. Can you pass on our thanks to John and staff as they were excellent on the day.
Michael & Joanne – September
