Mother of the Bride - The Abbey Hotel were absolutely amazing! The wedding co-ordinator was brilliant and she saw to everything in a calm yet unobtrusive manner. The hotel itself is a super venue for a wedding and it hosts the ruins of Roscommon Castle nearby which coupled with the gardens within the hotel make for an excellent wedding backdrop for photos! The food was excellent as always for the Abbey and the service was perfectly timed. A complementary bedroom were given to the parents of the bride and the groom which i thought was a really nice touch. All in all a wonderful experience and much kudos to the staff and management of the Abbey Hotel.
