Wow what a wedding we had at the hillgrove hotel. We had seen images posted on Instagram by weddings online of the venue an fell head over heels. We booked a show around with their wedding co-ordinator Dean and we were immediately sold. Not only was the venue exactly the place i dreamed about, but Dean was the complete package. Dean made everything so easy from start to finish. Every single detail he had to perfection from table dressing, reception drink area even down to making sure my dress train was perfect when walking down the aisle. Not one single job was too big a task for him. Dean was always immediately responsive throughout our whole process from booking to wedding day and even after. Booking the hillgrove you will not be disappointed especially if dean is there to look after you. Classy, elegant, fun sophisticated your dream day all in one place is how I can best describe the service & venue.

Where do we begin. From the first time visiting the hotel myself and Maria were made so welcome upon arrival, we were shown around the whole hotel from hotel lobby reception room, honeymoon suite to our resident bar. Nothing was left out and after a 2 hour show round and a relaxed sit down chat we felt nothing was forced upon us, they listened to our needs and desires. Upon leaving that first walk around we knew we had found our hotel. Without hesitation we placed a deposit and one sentence that stuck with me was Dean (our wedding coordinator) saying "We work for you now". That meant alot as it felt like Dean and the Hillgrove wanted to be part of our wedding and not just a wedding venue. From countless emails regarding wedding prep, Dean made even the smallest details achievable to help make our day that extra bit special. He helped ease our stress and worries and honestly without his help and guidance we wouldn't have got the perfect day. To the venue, the hotel is so welcoming from when your greeted at reception, to the bar staff and the staff in the restaurant. The wedding reception room was nothing sort of spectacular, we had a vision of how we wanted the room and Dean delivered it, the room can be designed and catered to all different needs, it deff is worth seeing. The reaction of our guests proved this as everyone commented on how stunning the room was. We included a second day of celebrating to our weekend, and the attention to detail was as high a standard as it was for our wedding day. The staff catered to our needs and went the extra mile to securing extra bedrooms and putting on extra food for our buffet. There are many hotels that will take a wedding, but I can honestly say from the heart that not one of them will cater or go that extra mile for you than the Hillgrove, And Dean our wedding coordinator, he is so passionate about his job, and I repeat how well he made us feel leading up to our wedding and how he gave us the day we wanted. I can honestly say we have made a special friendship with him. Thank you for everything Dean. Book an appointment to view the Hillgrove for your wedding. I promise you won't be disappointed. *****

I genuinely would not have changed one thing about our day. We were the most laid back couple throughout the whole process, and maybe towards the big started to worry about little things. However, Dean to the rescue, Dean is a god send, he was reassuring and took away any stress. Nothing was a problem for him, he has genuinely thought of everything, he has a solution for any problem that you might come across even if you haven't thought about it yet. The food of the day was amazing also, hats off to the chefs, our guests are still talking about it. And the service was second to none, and in a time were hospitality is struggling this is such a credit to the establishment.

We cannot thank Dean enough for all he done for us on the lead up and on the day of our wedding. We had moved our wedding forward and undecided with dates at times and yet Dean was very understanding and helpful and had put my mind at ease when I decided to go ahead with our wedding day in October just past in June this year, it was a short space of time for planning and organising everything but I never felt under pressure or stressed as Dean had everything under control and listened to what we wanted for our special day. The staff at the hotel where just amazing on the day and we can't thank them enough. The food was a big talking point among out guests who where blown away by each course and the service was just second to none. Dean is just an amazing person who is wonderful at his job and a delight to deal with no job is too big or too small. I would highly recommend The Hillgrove Hotel for their wedding day and there is nothing I can fault or that I would change about my own special day it just was the best day ever.

We first met Dean in February 2021 when we got engaged. We had looked at a few hotels already and the minute we met Dean we just knew he was the person we wanted to help us with our day. From day one he went out of his way to accommodate us, there were never any issues and there was always clear communication from day one. We never felt stressed or pressured at all during the wedding planning process. We set our date for October 2022 and all went perfectly. The food was amazing, everyone had so many compliments on how good the food was, just top class service. Dean himself on the day was brilliant also, helped us feel relaxed and looked after everything behind the scenes. We just knew we were in good hands. Everything we asked for was done at 110% we wouldn’t change one thing about the day. We would 100% recommend the Hillgrove. They do an amazing job, every single one of them from the waiters, kitchen and bar staff, we couldn’t be happier with how the day went.

We had our magical wedding day in the Hillgrove Hotel on Friday the 30th of September 2022. It was a dream come true all thanks to Dean and his wonderful team. The help and support we received from Dean throughout our whole wedding journey was amazing. Dean ensured our wedding experience was stress free as possible as he was always available to help and reassure us with any worries and issues that occurred. The Hillgrove Hotel is absolutely beautiful, from the minute we entered the hotel we both knew straight away we wanted to have our wedding reception in this modern, elegant, bright and sophisticated venue. Both ourselves and our guests were absolutely blown away by the standard of service and food. Over the past few weeks we have received nothing but fantastic reviews from our guests regarding the exceptional experience they received while staying at the Hillgrove. We are beyond grateful to have had Dean as our wedding coordinator while planning our dream wedding. We would highly recommend all newly engaged couples to visit Dean and his team as they will not be disappointed. We would love to do it all over again. The most perfect day from start to finish!

It is difficult to put into words to justify how amazing The Hillgrove Hotel and team are. I envy any couples considering this venue as their option for their wedding, simply because I’d love to do it all over again! We initially booked our big day pre-covid and as a result, we’re faced with changing dates, restrictions and sadly the hotel closing their doors due to government guidelines. We rescheduled our date to 30/04/22 (with absolutely no issue) and had our amazing day. From start to finish Dean, our wedding co-ordinator was exceptional. His real passion for his job is so evident from your first meeting right through to the big day. He is there for everything - and by everything I mean things he shouldn’t even have to deal with from a bride lol. He is incredible and will bend over backwards to make sure you have an unforgettable experience at the Hillgrove Hotel. Staff are also next level, service, speed, manners, presentation - flawless. We cannot thank this hotel enough for the memories they have given us. Highly recommend all couples to visit the Hillgrove and speak with Dean if considering booking your wedding! The Fegans

From the moment we met Dean at the Hillgrove Hotel we knew we had not only found the right venue but more importantly the perfect person to organise our wedding. In our first conversation we were put at ease and had no hard sell, we were given information, advice and guidance even if we didn't choose the Hillgrove. We were taken on a tour of the hotel and were offered numerous options for reception room, ceremony and packages. Every query or idea we had was answered with the phrase 'not a bother'. The flexibility of the hotel is second to none and they go above and beyond to make the day perfect, with Dean taking all the organising stress on board leaving us to just, turn up and enjoy the day. (even setting up the children's corner in the reception room). We were lucky to have Dean look after our wedding with his professionalism and attention to detail it was perfect, we would highly recommend him to any couple. With excellent food, spotlessly clean hotel, helpful and pleasant staff, our guests had nothing but praise for the Hillgrove Hotel and staff from check-in to check-out.

We had our wedding in The Hillgrove Hotel a few weeks ago and it was honestly the most perfect day! From the first moment that we met the hotel team, they stood out from all the rest, and throughout the decision-making process for our venue, we just kept coming back to The Hillgrove. Our coordinator, Dean Coyne, and all the staff are so lovely, friendly, attentive and accommodating, and they made the whole process so enjoyable and relaxed. No ask was too big or small, and they made everyone feel at home for the couple of days we were there. You get amazing value for money, and everything Dean and his team do is with the client very much at the forefront. Dean also does a wonderful job of ensuring that the day runs as smoothly as possible, and the staff really look after the guests and make sure that every need is catered to. The hotel is a beautiful venue, and the team decorate it so wonderfully with the hotel's own decor, so much so that we had to get very little of our own decor. Everything is located in the one section of the hotel, and is completely separate to the rest of the hotel guests so it almost feels like your own private venue which is so nice! Our guests were blown away by the service provided by this hotel, and we ourselves could not speak highly enough about it. If you're looking for excellent service, exquisite food, an exceptional and enthusiastic coordinator and genuinely lovely staff, we would highly recommend choosing The Hillgrove Hotel. You won't be disappointed. Dean and co., thanks so much for everything and for making our day so special! Kevin and Órlaith

I have no idea where to being to describe our wedding in the Hillgrove Hotel. It was more than I ever could imagined. From the initial meeting at a wedding fair and then right through to the wedding itself it was just a fantastic and a well supported journey. Dean is fantastic and puts you at ease, nothing is too much trouble and always with a kind heart and a genuine smile. The wedding day itself was wonderful, the sheer amount of décor to choose from means that you don’t have to worry about all those little extras as the hotel has this covered, from room decorations to cake stands, its all available should you wish to choose it. The team on the day, from the set up team to the serving team, are all so helpful and friendly. Our guests still love talking about it, and obviously we love hearing about it, but everyone said the same – how amazing the hotel and its team was. If I was to have my wedding all over again I would be back to the Hillgrove time and time again. We are both so blessed we found this venue and we both feel the same way. Thanks again for such happy memories that will last a lifetime.

Hi, We would like to start off with how beautiful the Hillgrove Hotel is , this was our 4th venue to visit, when we walked through the doors into reception we instantly had a great feeling for this hotel. Our wedding day from start to finish was everything we wanted and more! This was all down to Dean our wedding coordinator and his wonderful team, everything we wished for we got with no issues which made our experience even better, compared to other venues that we visited first the Hillgrove Hotel just offered us so much more and we just knew before leaving on our first visit that this was the perfect venue for us. We got married on 27th July 2022 and this was our 4th date due to Covid restrictions, every date was changed with no problems and everything went so smoothly. Dean kept in contact with us regularly to make sure everything was in place and how we wanted it , our guests were delighted with the service and everyone commented on how beautiful the food was. That day when we arrived Dean met us with a red carpet laid out and helped us out of the wedding car and handed us champagne which instantly made us feel welcome then for photos Dean lifted my veil up in the air and made it look like the wind was blowing it which was a lovely touch for our photos. We also extended our stay and had our day after the wedding in the hotel with music and a buffet for a few family and friends and this was great not having to pack up the next morning, the next day was great to catch up with everyone it was nice and relaxing again all down to the service of the hotel. So thanks again to the Hillgrove Hotel, Dean and his team for making our special day a dream day it was amazing! X

The Hillgrove is a beautiful hotel, a lovely setting for a wedding. The separate entrance to the function room makes for a lovely entrance in for the couple with a relaxed reception and bar area. The hotel was very good value for money, particularly compared to many hotels in N.I. We had so many compliments from guests about the quality of food and staff were on hand offering seconds (and thirds!), ensuring guests were very well fed and watered. The service from staff was excellent and anyone we encountered were friendly and helpful. On top of all that the real highlight for us was our co ordinator, Dean. He was full of advice, practical, sensible, genuinely enthusiastic, accommodating, a down right nice guy and a pleasure to work with. Overall we couldn't have asked for a better experience and our dealings with the hotel were the easiest part of organising our wedding. Would absolutely recommend the Hillgrove hotel as a wedding venue to anyone.

They were so attentive to our guests and helped the day run as smoothly as it did. We have to give a special mention to the food!! All we can say was the dinner was first class, all of our guests were raving about the meal. We stayed the following day and had dinner in PK’s Bar and the food there was also exceptional. I would definitely recommend the Hillgrove to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Thanks again to Dean and all the staff at the Hillgrove. You really made our day perfect and we look forward to staying in the Hillgrove again sometime soon.

We had our wedding in the hillgrove Hotel and Spa booked from 2018. With covid we postponed from 2021 to 2022. With changing dates Dean was so helpful and always prompt at answering all calls and emails. We had our day on 15th July 2022 and it was the best day ever. Hotel was so accomdating especially with the majority of our wedding party staying. The food was outstanding, attention to detail was second to none and most importantly Dean was there throughout making sure everything went seamlessly. It honestly was the best day and all our guest commented on how fantastic the hillgrove Hotel was. We've had many say it was the best wedding they've ever been to. I highly recommend booking your wedding here.

What can we say, we had the most amazing experience with Dean and all the wedding team at the Hillgrove Hotel. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were so accommodating with any request we had. Our guests couldn’t speak highly enough of the food, we had around 280 guests and the service was fast and flawless. We can’t thank the Hillgrove enough for facilitating the best day of our lives. For anyone considering we would 100% recommend.

Due to covid we had to re-arrange our wedding. So when we contacted The Hillgrove to see if they could accommodate our wedding in 2022, we were delighted they had a date that suited us. The Hillgrove would be local to both our families, so we knew the level of service we would receive. We met with Dean various times before our wedding and the advice and recommendations he gave us really put our mind at ease. He was amazing from start to finish on our wedding day. The food on the day, was amazing! We had so many of our guests come to us to say how much they enjoyed the meal. The venue was beautiful. Couldn't recommend Dean and his team enough. Thanks for an amazing day! Shane & Ashlene, May 2022.

All we can say is WOW . From the first moment seeing the ball room set up for a wedding showcase we both fell in love with the thought of having our wedding there and booked our special day there and then .Without the professionalism Of Dean ( Wedding Planning Manger ) and his team our big day would not have went as smooth as it did . Dean was available 24/7 and always at the end of the phone if needed. He has great attention to detail and made sure every request we had was followed through. Our guests commented on how nice Dean was and brilliant at his job , an absolute credit to the hotel . We formed a special bond from the offset , he has a bright and bubbly personality and makes you feel totally at ease. He was amazing on the day in keeping us both calm and collected before the ceremony .He went above and beyond his duties in saving the bride from a total meltdown over a blunder noticed late into the evening the night before and saved the day ! A member of his staff Chris even offered to drive 1.5hrs away and get something needed , an unbelievably kind gesture from her and very much appreciated. The food was delicious and plenty of it , our guests were still talking about it the next day and couldn't compliment the chef enough. The service was fast and without fault and a special credit to Evelyn whom served the top table , she was extremely helpful and a pleasure to chat to . We would highly recommend any couples considering this venue to get in contact with Dean and book straight away . Amazing Professionalism , Service and Value from Dean and his team at The Hillgrove Hotel. We look forward to returning to the hotel in the near future.

I cannot recommend Dean enough to help organise your dream day he made our day run so smoothly and no task was too much for him !! family members commented numerous times as to how helpful Dean was to everyone throughout the day aswell as he was literally ten steps ahead of us no matter what I asked even at one point I couldn't find my wedding shoes but Dean had them already under my seat at the top table so they wouldn't be lost all these little details that make your day run so well !!! the hotel itself was also amazing and people couldn't compliment the staff and the food enough as it was simply gorgeous !!! will forever be grateful to Dean and the hillgrove staff for helping us celebrate our dream day

It's hard to express in a few words just how amazing Dean and the Hillgrove team are. Dean dedicated so much of his time (even outside working hours) to keep me calm and relaxed through our whole wedding journey. We honestly have never dealt with such a hard working gentleman who clearly has great passion for his workplace and his career. Our wedding day was perfect and all our guests continue to compliment the amazing venue, delicious food and 5* service we all received over our wedding weekend. Dean continually went above and beyond anyone's expectations of a wedding co-ordinator and ensured every fine detail was perfected for our special day. Our wedding day may have gone by us in the blink of an eye but we will forever hold special memories thanks to the Hillgrove team. It is a truly spectacular venue and every single part of our day went perfectly to plan thanks to Dean. I can safely say any future couple searching for their perfect wedding venue won't find anything quite as amazing as The Hillgrove

It’s near impossible to put one of the most important days of your life into someone’s hands but we knew with the Hillgrove Hotel it would be completely safe. We had initially booked our wedding with a different hotel however after attending a wedding fayre at the hillgrove we knew we just had to have our wedding here. The hotel itself is so beautiful however the staff here 1000% make it. Dean Coyne is the most incredible wedding co-ordinatior we have ever met. No matter what we needed big or small and time of the day he was there emailing back even the most silliest questions were not a bother! Dean made our day 100% He is an incredible asset to the wedding industry and goes above and beyond his call of duty every single day. The hillgrove provided us with the most beautiful meal and everyone was commenting on how beautiful the meal was and there was plenty of food to go around which is always a plus! Even some of our kids changed their minds last minute but Dean was on the ball getting everything sorted for them straight away which was a beautiful touch. We literally felt like the most important people in the world that day and that’s all thanks to Dean and all the wonderful staff at the Hillgrove hotel. I’m still very emotional writing this because I would absolutely love to do this all again! It really is the fastest day of your life but with the Hillgrove there is no stress! Dean thank you from the bottom of our hearts we were so blessed to have met you and have you plan our very special day!

Our wedding was a week ago and we still have the biggest smiles on our faces, the Hillgrove Hotel in Monaghan was a fantastic venue, we got engaged in 2019 and quickly realised the Hillgrove was the place we wanted to get married, we chose the I do all inclusive package which included a band and DJ, photographer, cake, flowers and all the extras from the hotel. Firstly let me say that our band Vertigo and photographer Manuel Lavery were simply fantastic and without recommendation from the hotel we would have never known about them. As for service in the Hillgrove Dean is fantastic everytime we went down to the hotel for whatever reason he was there to welcome us, keep us calm through Covid and really made it a personal experience it was like we were the only bride and groom he was working with, he gave fantastic guidance and advice and it was an absolute pleasure the work with him, we really can't praise Dean enough he is a real asset to the Hillgrove Hotel and we can honestly say he made our wedding experience the best it could have been, the day of our wedding was the best day, food, service and personal touches left by Dean and the amazing team in the Hillgrove was flawless. All our guests simply said it was the best wedding and everyone had an amazing time. You can't get any better value for money and this was a hotel that is more interested in creating a magical day for their brides and grooms no matter what your budget is, the only wedding venue i have seen that includes everything from chair covers, centerpieces, light up love sign and even a Cherry Blossom tree for the table plan, simply FANTASTIC!!!

There are not enough words we can use to describe how absolutely fantastic the hillgrove Hotel and their staff made our wedding day! Every single detail we envisioned for our day the hillgrove delivered on, the food was unbelievable, taste, flavour, quantity. The atmosphere created within our room, fantastic. The incredible staff, each of which were so friendly, polite and helpful. No surprise really as we dealt with Dean the wedding coordinator within the hotel, who for us we felt truly made the whole experience that bit more special, his attention to detail and wanting to make your day YOURS. Bridal suite, guest rooms all impeccably clean and well maintained. Credit where it is due, this is an exceptional hotel to consider for your wedding day.

Myself and my husband recently celebrated our wedding reception in the Hillgrove Hotel, Monagahan. We had the best experience and I honestly can't thank Dean and the staff at the hotel enough for making our day so perfect. Like most couples, we were supposed to get married in 2020. We chose The Hillgrove the day we viewed it, the room was spectacular, the all inclusive package covered everything we hoped our day would have, and we got a really amazing discount for taking one of the last available dates for that year. When covid struck and it began to sink in that we were going to have to postpone, we were devastated. That's when Dean stepped in (taking over from our origional wedding coordinator) and what a life saver he was. He underst9od our needs for pushing back (we had a number of high risk family and friends), he listened to what we wanted to get out of the day and he understood all our concerns. He kept in touch with us regularly over the next year, meeting with us when he could. He accommodated late number changes and made recommendations we would have never thought of. Even up to the week before our wedding the government were still making announcements (good ones thankfully) and Dean coped with it all (and kept us sane). The sun shone on the day, but if it hadn't have, Dean had two entrances arranged for us, one covered and one uncovered. He kept everything running like clockwork so we could sit back, enjoy and take it all in. Our guests are still raving about how beautiful the food was and the staff on the day were just fantastic, so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I honestly couldn't recommend The Hillgrove Hotel and Dean highly enough. They are truly superb at what they do. Thank you so much Dean and the team, for giving us the best day of our lives and for all your help and support throughout. We look forward to seeing you all again soon. The McGarrys

We had the most fantastic experience with the Hillgrove Hotel wedding team, namely Dean Coyne. We booked our wedding in April 2021 for September 2021 which was a relatively short period of time for planning. Coupled with this we were in the middle of a pandemic and the level of support and quality of service from the Hillgrove Hotel was second to none. In a time were nothing was certain we were regularly contacted by the hotel and updated on where things were and what restrictions were in place, always reassuring us. Dean did everything within his power to accommodate us and was really flexible with whatever was within his control. The hotel, reception area and the wedding room itself are beautiful. Stunning lighting features and decorations throughout. All our guests commented on how fabulous the reception area and wedding room were. We had some children within our wedding guests and they had an amazing time with loads of facilities to keep them occupied. We were blown away by how easy Dean made everything for us and there were so many things he just took care of without question. We have busy jobs and live in the UK so having very little to arrange for the venue was beyond what we were hoping for and we couldn't be more thankful to Dean and the wider team. The day itself was managed to perfection. The Hillgrove team were so professional, friendly and accommodating. We had the best day, so relaxed for us and would highly recommend this venue to any of our friends or family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the amazing service you all provide, we couldn't have chosen a better venue to celebrate our day!

We booked our wedding here before Covid was ever a thing and from the get go we felt that unlike any other hotels the Hillgrove were willing to give back to couples ie. the gift to you. Like many other couples we had to postpone our wedding for September 2020 and this was done so smoothly and totally hassle free. As our new wedding approached and guidelines needed clarification from the government we were starting to dread a covid wedding again but after speaking to Enda he soon to put us at ease and helped make the planning enjoyable again. Dean had then taken over and well what can we say, as a newly promoted wedding events manager he was more that happy to go over and beyond for us nothing was to big of an ask. If there was anything he could do for us he did. Dean was an absolute delight to work along with in making our special day as magical as it was. All the staff in general on our wedding day couldn’t be faulted, the food was endless and glasses were never empty. Everyone just kept talking about the amount of food and how nice it was. If we were to do it again we wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you very much, from the new Mr & Mrs Cunningham 18.09.21

From the very first day we were by to the Hillgrove to book our wedding there, which was a civil wedding and full reception, the staff were so professional and explained every detail so clearly, they left no questions unanswered, we were shown the function room, the civil ceremony room, both laid out immaculately and beautiful, we were shown the new garden, full choice menus which even catered for dietary requirements, everything was made so clear to us and the Hillgrove staff, namely Enda and Dean, both fully worked with us for our wedding, alongside the wedding celebrant, florists and cake maker, due to corolabola Govt restrictions and because of the restrictions, the Hillgrove staff namely Enda and Dean actually gave us for our day a lot of extra decorations and features to make the civil ceremony, entry hall and reception room even more fantastic and beautifully decorated, thank you all so much, we were to have our wedding last year but had to postpone it till this year, that was no problem to them at all, the govt restrictions still placed a limit on us, of 50 guests and no live music, Enda and Dean played trumps with us by organising the Spotify playlist made by the band we had booked, to be played both at the civil ceremony and after the wedding meal, that really made the nigh for us, the food was fantastic, so thanks to the chefs and the banquet staff for amazing service, choices, efficiency and prices, all were brilliant, the rooms for guests and the bridal suite were all to class, the professionalism of Enda and Dean with all thier help and guidance was unreal and without them, we were pule have been lost, they even kept the flowers in a fridge!!!! Who ever is thinking of booking the Hillgrove for thier wedding, don't dare bypass them as you will regret it, they only complaint we had was, it's an awful pity you guys didn't have Hillgrove Hotel over the past few years, it's now a truly amazing hotel under management of INUA hotels and well turned around and decorated top to bottom, with amazing staff and excellent prices, compared to its previous owners, in fact I'd love to work there

We had the most amazing wedding day and weekend at the hillgrove hotel. Mary and the rest of the staff were absolutely fantastic. They made us feel like nothing was too much to ask and the attention to detail was very much appreciated. Mary has such a lovely calm approachable Manor and I knew our day was in great hands from the beginning, she really knows her stuff!! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The ballroom we chose for both our ceremony and reception was just newly refurbished to a high standard with its own entrance and drinks reception area, extremely handy for us as we decided to go ahead in the middle of a pandemic. Both myself and my husband and all our guests felt the hotel took all the necessary steps to keep us safe and protected. Our day was just dreamy!!! I cannot recommend having your wedding in this venue enough. It was an absolute delight!

Our wedding in the Hillgrove hotel was an absolutely excellent experience. The hotel staff were superb from the minute we walked in the door to speak to the wedding planners when we were researching wedding venues, all the way through to the minute we left on the day after our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, all our needs were expertly looked after, and the quality of the rooms, the decor, the foyer, the wedding reception rooms etc., was all superb. On the day of the wedding itself, we were expertly managed by the experienced staff, and the food and service were top notch. There was not one complaint from any of our guests (240 people),so we are delighted with the hotel, and are totally comfortable with recommending it to other couples who are looking for a great wedding venue.

The Hillgrove is absolutely amazing!! Myself and my husband went back in 2016 to have a look and from we met Mary and seen the room everything was perfect. 3years in advance booking everything. Mary was in touch all the time making sure everything was well especially with the arrival of our daughter. The few months leading up to our wedding Mary was on the ball with everything and the communication was brilliant anything I needed or wanted she sorted!! On arrival of our wedding the welcome we got from Mary&Enda was phenomenal!! The way everything was displayed was absolutely beautiful!! My guests never stopped talking about the amount of bubbly,beer and food on arrival and it all tasted amazing, even the selection of food for my coeliac relatives they were amazed!! Then the dinner unbelievable the food was out of this world as always and yet again my guests couldn't get over how wonderful everything was and the amount of seconds.... The whole hotel, staff, food even the decor (what made me love the hotel) is simply amazing everything was completed to perfection exactly how I wanted our special day to go!!!  We will be forever grateful for the Hillgrove hotel for everything they done for us on the 19/09/19 Highly recommend it.. Actually can't recommend the hotel enough. It is just a beautiful place to visit, to try the food, the spa and have a nice night away!!!  Thanks for everything... Love from the McGinleys x

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Hillgrove to any future Bride and Grooms. The entire service was absolutely excellent from quality of the service and food, to the welcome and the setup. Mary, Enda and the entire team made us feel so relaxed and welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed every second of our day. The food was incredible and all our guests (many of whom travelled from England) commented on how welcome they felt over the whole weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and throughout our entire reception everything was so in hand by the staff that both myself and my husband barely left the dancefloor and we got to enjoy every second of our evening with our guests - which was exactly what we wanted. If I were to do it all over again the only thing I would change would be to make it last even longer!

Where to start!! We had the most amazing day at the Hillgrove Hotel Monaghan for our wedding on 3rd May! Our wedding coordinator Mary was amazing from we initially visited the hotel back in September 2017 right through to our wedding day! She literally could not do enough for you, she honestly made my wedding planning experience quite relaxed and never once did I panic about anything in relation to the venue! Mary had everything covered which made our day run so smoothly!! I could not recommend Mary & her team highly enough as wedding coordinators for you big day! In the venue itself we used the Rembrandt Suite for our wedding ceremony and the Van Gough Suite for the reception. Both were decorated impeccably - we could not have been happier with the layout of the rooms, the decorations and the ambience as a whole was amazing!! The food was delicious, we heard nothing but good reports about the food and everyone seemed to really enjoy their meals! The staff were second to none! We had quite a big wedding with 194 guests and throughout the food service and evening buffet the staff were fantastic, they were friendly, approachable and efficient!! Special shout out to Moulay, Evelyn, Geraldine and Aleksandra who were fantastic on both our wedding day and the bbq celebrations the day after!! Our wedding guests are still talking about our wedding and how amazing the Hillgrove as a venue was which is testament in itself to the service we received! I honestly could not recommend the Hillgrove highly enough for any upcoming wedding!! You will not be disappoint

We were the first wedding to be photographed in the new wedding gardens and we are delighted with our photographs! Brilliant to have such a nice spot right outside the hotel so you don't have to go away to get photos taken and end up missing out on more of the big day. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Hillgrove to any engaged couples as the quality of service from all of the hotel staff we got was phenomenal, our special day went off without a hitch and we are still getting comments from guests of it being "the best wedding they have been at", our delicious wedding meal is still getting talked about too!

The staff in the Hillgrove are outstanding, nothing is ever a bother. Mary and Enda are both excellent and a pleasure to deal with, both made my experience an easy and delightful one. The room was absolutely stunning exactly what I wanted. Our guests all commented on how good the food and the service they received from the staff. Everyone was eating at the same time so no waiting around. I would recommend the Hillgrove for a wedding and I wish I could do mine all over again. Thank you Enda and Mary for helping us have the best day!

Me and my husband had our Wedding Evening Reception at the Hillgrove Hotel Monaghan on the 3rd of August 2018. The Hillgrove was close to home and thought it would be ideal for our special day. The lead up to the wedding, our Hotel Wedding Co-Ordinator Mary did everything to help us with great communication. On the day of the Wedding, Mary ensured everything went to plan from start to finish, timing and food etc was great. Mary and the staff of the Hillgrove did an excellent job. We recommend the Hillgrove for a great wedding. Thanks very much. Lisa & Cathal.

We held our wedding in the Hillgrove and it was a fantastic day! Food was great and the room where we held our ceremony was beautifully decorated, staff were pleasant and very helpful! Our wedding co-ordinator (Mary) went over and beyond for us, anyone planning to get married should definitely go for a look around. It was a pleasure from the planning to our big day.

What can I say...just wow!! From the very first moment we came to the Hillgrove as a possible venue we were blown away!! The hotel is decorated to such a high standard, the staff are amazing..so so helpful and the food is fabulous!! We booked straight away and it was the best decision we made hands down. Mary & her team couldn't do enough for us, so helpful, professional and calmed me down at the later stages of planning when I started to fuss over the small stuff. All of our guests loved the food on the wedding day, including some people that are notoriously hard to please!! We had a lot of guests stay over on the wedding night and all reviews were positive the next day which was great to hear. Another note is that my brother with severe disabilities was treated like a King that day, the staff couldn't do enough to help out and that for me was the icing on the cake. Can't wait for our next visit..hopefully, get a weekend away soon!! Highly recommend to all brides in the booking stage...you won't regret it!!

Myself and My Husband Celebrated our Wedding in the Hillgrove in January, Everything was fantastic, every request I had was never a problem. We sat 309 guests and everyone was delighted with the food and service on the day. We had hot whiskeys and mini burgers on arrival which went down a treat :) People still talk about our wedding which is great, unfortunately when all is over that's all you have left, is that all your guests had a great day. Thank you to all the staff!

We recently got married in the Hillgrove hotel and I cannot explain how amazing our experience was! Mary Quigley our wedding coordinator was exceptional and she covered all the little details that made our day perfect! From the food to the bridal suite to the unbelievable service the day was perfect from start to finish! Throughout the run up to our wedding mary was always at the end of the phone or email to help us with anything we needed! Mary went beyond her duties to make this day so special for us and was even there to reassure me the week before when I was slightly stressed! A 10/10 from my new husband and I! All of our guests have said how exceptional the day was also! Highly recommend the Hillgrove for any upcoming brides and grooms!

Absolutely fantastic from start to finish. Linda was our coordinator and nothing was too much hassle. We were organising our wedding from over seas and the flexibility that the Hillgrove had for us when it came to appointments was unbelievable. They know exactly what they are doing and they do it brilliantly, complete experts and can assist with any extras. The food...our guests raved about the food, the quality and the quantity is fantastic. Couldn't have asked for better.

We really cannot recommend the Hillgrove enough. From start to finish the day was amazing and this was down to the professionalism and organisation of Linda and the rest of the team. We felt so relaxed and comfortable from the minute we arrived at the hotel and the food and the service was 5 star. We were organising the wedding from Australia and the support we received from the Hillgrove team was greatly appreciated and made our life very easy. From the bottom of our hearts, thanks so much. We had the best day ever xxx
