See what our couples have to say.....
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!

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,

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 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.

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
