“A massive thank you to all the staff in The Hardiman who made our wedding day so incredible! A special thanks to Valerie who was so flexible and helpful throughout our planning and re-planning! The welcome we received when we walked into the hotel is one the best memories of our whole day. The team managed to turn the beautiful large ballroom into an intimate setting where our guests felt so well treated that they are still talking about the service and the food. Thanks again to everyone in The Hardiman for giving us the best setting for the best day of our lives!”

A Wedding in the heart of Galway for all of our guests to enjoy was always what we had both hoped for. With that in mind, the Hardiman was always the number one choice and offered the location that would give both the Glaswegian’s and the travelers an opportunity to enjoy the vibrancy of Galway City centre. From the minute we met with Valerie and looked at the Wedding packages our mind was firmly made up. It was everything we were looking for and more and that was very clear from day one. We worked with Valerie in the months leading up to the wedding, despite Covid and the obstacles that we had as a result, we always felt that everything would be ok and were so reassured by the service we received. Nothing was ever a problem and that carried right through to the end of the Wedding Day.
We were looking for exceptional food and service on the day and both exceeded our expectations. All of our guests were hugely complimentary of both and that’s exactly the experience we were hoping they would have. Everything about the venue helped set the tone for a day which was full of life and fun and was a day that will long in the memories of everyone that was there!
Eddie and Ria.

We would highly recommend the Hardiman Hotel as a venue for your wedding reception. Valerie and all of the team at the Hotel were supportive and helpful to us throughout the various lockdowns, as we had to postpone our wedding twice. When we finally reached our wedding day, we had a fantastic experience at the Hardiman Hotel. The location was ideal for us to capture the essence of Galway city as part of our day. The reception and ballroom were beautifully decorated and the food was delicious. All of the staff expertly catered for our guests’ needs. We really had the best day and would love to have it all over again!

We met Valerie 12 weeks before our wedding date looking to book our wedding on a certain date in July. Valerie and her team pulled out all the stops to accommodate us in what we can only describe as a stress free, professional, and blissful journey to our wedding day. Valerie was in constant contact with us on the lead up to the wedding and was so reassuring and left no stone unturned. On the day of our wedding Valerie was there with her team and was so accommodating. The food was amazing and all our guests complimented it. We had 50 guests at our wedding and it was the best day ever. The team set up the function room lovely and it felt like there was more than 50 people seated. I highly recommend The Hardiman Hotel for a wedding venue and Valerie is amazing.
We are eternally grateful for all her guidance and support”

I would like to thank the Hardiman Hotel for a wonderful day and a special thanks to our wedding co-ordinator Valerie. We started planning our wedding at the start of COVID in 2020 and did not imagine how difficult this would be. After numerous changes of wedding dates, we got married on 18th June 2021. Valerie was very helpful, patient, supportive and accommodating with the constant changes and did all she could to reassure us we would have our special day. There was constant contact with Valerie throughout all the uncertainty and I really want to thank her for making our day better than new could have imagined especially with restrictions in numbers of guests, no wedding band, curfew etc.
We both said we would not change a thing which is great.
The hotel looks great after it was re furbished last year. All the hotel staff were very friendly and the wedding meal was top class. All our guests were full of praise for the meal and the breakfast the next morning which was great to hear. Anything we asked for was not an issue which was great.
The location is great for a wedding ceremony and reception as there are loads of places to take photos around Galway city. We went to the grounds of NUIG and the Claddagh and got beautiful photos. We had a civil ceremony and I must say it was very intimate and the ballroom looked great especially in photos.
We cannot recommend the hotel enough and we want to thank you all for a wonderful day, we are very appreciative, Amy and Brian.
Conan & Deirdre, 12th December 2020
We count ourselves lucky to have had our wedding at The Hardiman Hotel in December 2020. While originally planned for May 2020, the amazing staff at The Hardiman were very helpful when it came to reorganising our date, looking after the bookings for our family members and rearranging everything to ensure our long-awaited wedding was everything we had hoped it would be. On the day, we didn’t have to worry about a thing and were able to enjoy the day with our guests. The Hardiman staff, during the run-up to the wedding and on the day, were fantastic, with special mention to Valerie, Stephen, Mary and Sonia (Sonja) who made sure we were well looked after all day and went above and beyond for us. The venue was beautifully presented and everything we were looking for in a wedding venue; the food was amazing and the service we received was nothing but exceptional and this was reiterated by our guests. We couldn’t recommend The Hardiman more and we are very much looking forward to celebrating our anniversary in The Hardiman for years to come”
