Danielle & Gary, Wedding 16 October 2015
"From the minute we meet with Alina, the wedding coordinator back in Feb 15, I knew this hotel was for us. She was so friendly and welcoming (as were all staff members) and couldn't do enough to help us. Every detail of our wedding was prefect and I cannot thank the staff at the Glenview enough. We choose a humanist ceremony which was head in the hotel and the room was beautifully decorated, warm and welcoming. Our reception was fantastic, beautifully laid out room with plenty of drinks and bites for our guests. The ground of the hotel are kept very well and view breath taking. Our pictures are testament to the that! The function room was amazing. The bar being in the room was very important to me as I feel that sometimes you may loose some guests to the bar (if not in the room) so I was very happy with that. The food was exceptional, hats off to your chef, who did an amazing job. Overall I cannot fault the Glenview. We had the best day, it was exactly what I had hoped for, and that would not have happened if it wasnt for Alina and all the staff at the Glenview. So thank you so much."
Aoife & Barry, Wedding 21st of August 2015
"We got married in the Glenview Hotel just over 3 weeks ago now, and could not be happier with our choice of venue. The wedding coordinator, Alina, was a pleasure to deal with and made the planning process so easy for us. She was always at hand with helpful suggestions and excellent recommendations of suppliers, like the photographer she suggested which we were more than delighted with. We think she even controlled the weather for us on the day! The hotel itself was fabulous, we were lucky enough to have an outdoor ceremony in the gardens by a beautiful waterfall and the scenery and views were breathtaking. All our guests commented on how good the food and service was definitely worth a 5 star, nothing was too much trouble, from the bar staff, to Valentino taking such good care of us at breakfast the next morning and the excellent F&B manager Sabine who ensured everything ran perfectly on the day. A massive thank you to all, we really could not have envisioned a more beautiful wedding and cannot recommend this hotel enough."
Melissa & Sam, Wedding 16th August 2015
"We were beyond delighted with our wedding at Glenview Hotel. We booked our wedding 5 months before the big day and had a lot to organise but Alina put our mind at ease and recommended an amazing photographer, DJ and spiritualist for the big day which made organizing so much easier. We were hoping for an outdoor personalized wedding and the staff at Glenview delivered on every single element. They helped us to create the day and night of our dreams - a beautiful spiritualist ceremony in the picturesque gardens followed by a classy and fun outdoor prosecco reception and a fabulous dinner and evening reception in the ballroom with stunning views of the downs. Our guests also complimented the delicious food and generous servings. We wanted to incorporate personal touches and our love of music to almost every aspect of the wedding and Glenview were very accommodating with all of the arrangements, decorations and entertainment set-up. Some of our requests were outside the realm of a more traditional wedding but Alina encouraged all of our ideas. I would not hesitate to recommend the Glenview Hotel as a superb choice for a wedding venue. It is situated in the most beautiful surroundings of the Glen of the Downs and the extremely professional, accommodating and friendly staff will go above and beyond to ensure that their Bride&Groom have the day and night of their dreams. We will always cherish the memories of our magical wedding at Glenview! Mel&Sam"

"The Glenview Hotel has always been a special place for me having spent many a family occasion celebrating there. On meeting with Sabine, the event organiser, to view the hotel for our wedding we were very impressed with her attitude and immediately trusted her with our special day. Our view only improved upon meeting Alina, the wedding co-ordinator, who with her bubbly attitude, creative ideas, quick responses and general helpfulness made for enjoyable wedding planning and organisation. We were delighted on the day itself to be able to enjoy the lovely gardens for our drinks reception, there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere created which allowed us and our guests to fully enjoy the day. The gardens were also perfect for taking the family photos without having to travel far away. We were so happy with our wedding day and would not hesitate in recommending them to any engaged couple.

"Our wedding couldn't have been more perfect thanks to the staff at the Glenview. From the day we contacted Alina about booking our wedding, to the big day itself they couldn't have been more professional or more attentive to us. Their attention to detail is fantastic and Alina is incredibly creative which made choosing a theme quick and easy.
On the day itself the serving staff were fast and efficient meaning not one of our guests were left waiting for their food. The whole meal was delicious and we were all stuffed by the end. The manager on the day was incredibly attentive and ready to fulfil any request we might have. We held the ceremony in the hotel also and the room was beautifully decorated for the occasion. The gardens were the ideal setting for our photographs with the autumn backdrop of the Glen.
We can't praise them enough for everything they did to make our big day so special. I would highly recommend the Glenview for the venue for any event, especially a wedding."

Michelle and Anthony O'Riordan - Wedding 13 September 2014
"My husband and I visited many hotel venues for our wedding day, but the Glenview topped our list immediately. We were given such a warm friendly and relaxed welcome.
All of the staff are extremely pleasant, helpful and courteous. We had many visits back to the Glenview before our big day, we attended the leisure centre many a Sunday for a swim
sauna and dip in their outdoor hot tub, followed by dinner in either the fabulous Woodlands restaurant with stunning views, or their Conservatory bar for delicious Sunday carvery. We were given 6 months complimentary membership to their leisure centre when we booked our date. Our wedding co-ordinator Alina, was fantastic, from the word go, she was a pleasure to work with and gave us so much of her time. Alina helped us to choose a theme, colour scheme, she looked up ideas and got to know what we liked and would email me with suggestions. She saved us money too especially with our garden decorations for our arrivals reception. Alina took a lot of our stress away, being so helpful and attentive. I loved that she was so excited and enthusiastic about our day.
Our wedding day was like a fairy-tale, we had a fabulous day from start to finish, the sun was shining, guests relaxed outside on arrival, in stunning surroundings, nobody wanted to leave the gardens, so beautiful. Our meal was delicious and the service was superb. We danced the night away and some of the staff did too, a big thank you to Sabine who looked after us on the day, so caring and attentive, and put so much work into our preparations and ensuring all of our guests were looked after.
My nana who is not very mobile was assisted to with all of her needs, and cannot stop praising all of the staff. I would highly recommend the Glenview!
Excellent food, stunning location, beautiful grounds, and to top it off amazing staff. Huge thank you to Alina, Vivienne, Sabine and Hazel."
Elaine & Alan - Wedding 5 September 2014
"Hi Alina, we would like to thank you for Friday and for all your help with the wedding planning. Yourself and Sabine did an absolutely fantastic job, we couldn’t have asked for better. The waiters and bar staff were fantastic and the wedding meal and BBQ food next day were excellent. The gardens were decorated beautifully for both days it was very clear a lot of effort was put in. Our guests were also very impressed with their rooms and complimented the size and cleanliness as well as the amazing views. We can’t thank you enough for making the biggest day of our lives a dream come through and will be recommending you to all of our friends. Elaine & Alan"
Lara & Michael - Wedding 30 August 2014
A massive thank you to everyone at the Glenview for making our day so special.

The day itself ran so smoothly thanks to all your preparation and Sabine’s organisation and implementation. Our guests are still raving about the beautiful views, lovely food and excellent service. Everyone had a great day, night and weekend…especially both of us.
We could not recommend the Glenview highly enough to any couple planning their wedding. A huge thanks once again for everything!"

Knowing how well looked-after our guests were really helped us enjoy our special day. Similarly, please pass on our gratitude to Barry, Sabine, Chef and all the catering staff. The food was amazing and more than a few people told us how great it was to see extra helpings being offered.

"Alina, I just want to say thank you so much for everything you did for us on our wedding day. It was absolutely perfect! The room and the gardens were amazing looking. The garden was like something from a photoshoot. I was delighted you had the idea of the lanterns because it really gave the gardens a magical look! You made sure all my ideas were presently perfectly. You were so easy to deal with throughout the whole process and so encouraging of all my weird ideas. Also we got our photos back digitally and the pictures on the driveway are great! Everybody was raving about the food, it was absolutely delicious and there was loads of it! I would like you to pass my thanks onto Sabine as well. She was brilliant on the day. She was on point with all the timings and arrangements and she has a great personality. All my family had nothing but good things to say about her!"

Debbie Walker & Steven Kool, Wedding 23 May 2014
“Glenview was perfect for our wedding. We planned our wedding from abroad, so had to depend on good communication and the staff working well with my parents, and we were so pleased with how it went, from the planning stage to the end of the day. The staff were excellent, incredibly helpful and fun, and were committed to making the day fantastic for us, which they did. The function room, the service, the dance floor were all perfect, and the drinks reception on arrival was wonderful. The rooms were lovely, the breakfast delicious. Our guests had such a great time. We loved the location too - not too far from Dublin, but just far enough and with a beautiful view of Wicklow. We would recommend Glenview Hotel without hesitation to any engaged couple. Alina was an incredible help - we were so thankful for how committed she was to making the day an expression of us and perfect for us. Sabine on the night was so much fun and a great help. We appreciate so much the excellent staff - thank you!”
Maria & Tony Hilton, Wedding 10th April 2014
"I really don't know how I can put forward how amazing the Glenview is as a wedding location. We got married there on the 10th of April this year and it was nothing short of perfect. Alina, our wedding coordinator made everything absolutely perfect. Her attention to detail is fantastic and you really feel like she's planning her best friend's wedding. That job is ideal for her! Everything from the build-up preparations to suggesting those little extra touches that make a difference to being a comfort when external planning gets tough, we couldn't have wished for anything more. On the day, they made sure we weren't bothered with anything and instead coordinated with the wedding party so that they made everything as lovely for us as possible. The room was decorated to perfection and Alina really helped to add in those extra details which make things special. I have to also call out Sabine who is a truly fantastic organiser on the day too. She helped to organise everything really well and you got the feeling that she was in full control of absolutely everything behind the scenes with Alina. They're a fab team. Together with the stunning location, beautiful main room, tasty food, beautifully decorated bridal suite and the amazing staff we couldn't have asked for anything more. I highly recommend this as the perfect wedding venue."
Clare Moloney and Colin Weafer, Wedding 24th of April 2014
“Our whole day went so smoothly. Every request I had was accommodated. I knew one thing I wouldn't have to worry about was the wedding reception as I had been to weddings in the Glen View before and knew that the Hotel and staff were very experienced in hosting a wedding reception. It meant I relaxed and enjoyed every minute of the day. All reports back from my guests were 100% positive.
I would just like to thank Alina and all the staff in the Glenview Hotel. It was obvious that a lot of hard work went into our day. My guests all commented on the fabulous service they received, the staff really out did themselves. The food was amazing. I was very happy to hear that everyone felt they had loads of eat and drink all day. Overall it was a brilliant experience and I would recommend the Glenview to anyone for a wedding. Thanks again, Clare, Colin & Sarah.”
Eileen Broughan, Mother of the Bride - Wedding 4th April 2014
"I want to say a 'HUGE' thank you to everyone at the Glenview Hotel Wicklow for such an amazing day at my daughter's wedding day last Friday, The whole day was perfect from start to finish. Ican’t even find the words to thank the wedding planner 'Alina’, her attention to detail was fantastic, and of course the manageress on duty 'Sabina' who delivered the most perfect day, and what a dancer she was too! To all the staff serving in the room, everyone commented that nothing was too much trouble to them at all! What a fantastic hotel to have a fantastic day!
Thank you all so much and continued success to you all.xxx"
Trish & Benjamin Jukes, Wedding 22nd March 2014
"From the moment we booked our wedding with The Glenview everything was perfect. The people we dealt with, the way we were dealt with was just so lovely and so, so professional. I cannot recommend them highly enough. ALL of the staff were a pleasure to deal with from our wedding co-ordinations Alina and Sabine to each and every person that served us and our guest’s dinner. All of my guests commented on this. Their attention to detail was excellent in that I had a particular vision in my head of how I wanted everything to look and sure enough when I walked into our reception room for the first time I could not have been happier, it was everything I had hoped for and more. The food was excellent and their choice of wine was second to none as it really complimented the food.
Our stay there was also amazing, so relaxing, just what you need after a year's wedding planning :-) I used The Haven for a facial and manicure and once again I wasn't disappointed -perfect.
If you are considering using The Glenview for your wedding reception, just go ahead and book - it'll be so worth it. Same goes for if you're just looking for a weekend away it's the perfect choice. Now just go ahead and Enjoy!!"
