We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Radisson Blu Athlone this November. Our wedding coordinator, Claire, was fantastic with helping us plan our big day. She was a dream to work with from start to finish. The hotel staff were professional and unbelievably accommodating on the day. The ceremony and reception room was laid out so beautifully and elegantly. The food was amazing. We had our day two at the hotel. Again, the staff were wonderful and the food was great. We enjoyed our celebrations from planning, right up to the main event. We would highly recommend the Radisson Blu Athlone for a wedding, outstanding venue.
Alexia & John
Honestly, it’s hard to put into words how amazing this venue was. It was the very first venue we viewed and I knew the second we walked in it was it. Our first co-Ord helped us with all our initial questions and was prompt on replying to all questions and setting us on our countdown journey. Claire started and with only a few months to go stepped up in realising our dream day. We wanted a relaxed day, sipping cocktails on the deck and enjoying food, well that’s exactly what we got. From the moment we walked in it was perfect, the ceremony setting exactly how I imaging it.
The reception was exactly the same the fairy tale dream. The food was absolutely perfect and honestly still spoken about when reminiscing. Every single server, manager all staff were so helpful in making sure everything was done right and that everything was the way we wanted. If I could do it over there isn’t anything I would change, I would highly recommend the Radisson Athlone as a wedding venue.

We had our big day on the 29th July this year after 3 new dates due to covid – but noting was too big or too small for the team at the Radisson in Athlone they were just so helpful and it really was just so stress free with them. Our day at the Hotel was everything and so much more we ever could have imagined from the service the food the room itself was all just amazing. They staff were just so hands on so helpful that day it really just was smooth sailing.
We had a kids table and anytime I looked down there was always a staff member over with them checking seeing if all was OK with them making sure they had enough food juice just playing with them it was just super. Also, our kids stayed that night with us and there room in the hotel was amazing and when we asked for them to be near us it was never an issue it was just super. We still have guests say to us about the service of food we had any amount and it was just amazing.
The Bar staff had their work cut out for them let me tell ya but they kept all our guests well-watered (hehe) To the management team & staff no matter what I asked or looked for it was never an issue even the day before going down to bring down our stuff going into the venue room looking at them all working away to make our day so special and they coming over seeing did we like it they were just brilliant. I couldn’t fault the guys at the Radisson and I would highly highly recommend it for a venue to any couple looking to celebrate their day with the Radisson Blu Athlone

To Claire & Staff, We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding day so special. We appreciate everything you did for us and our families that weekend. Claire was so supportive in the lead up to the wedding and coordinated every detail so well that the entire day ran so smoothly from start to finish. We had both our ceremony and reception in the hotel and it was such a fantastic setting. You created the perfect atmosphere for us and our guests and the decor was fabulous. The meal was also delicious, and was made even better with incredible service throughout – all our guests said how impressed they were. Your whole team went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and treated us so well from our very first visit. We even lost something sentimental on the day and the team managed to locate it and get it back into our hands safe and sound. It’s clear that the staff at the Radisson really care for and love what they do. From a very happy couple, A massive thank you, Gillian and Daniel
This is an amazing place for a Wedding. We can highly recommend the hotel. Great location, beautiful inside area, outside terrace area and nice view, very clean, plenty of very delicious and outstanding food great service . It was our dream venue and we had a wonderful time. The wedding venue manager Claire, is amazing and was so helpful the entire way through and was pleasure to work with very quick to respond. The price is very affordable, but the location and view seem like it should be worth a lot more. The hotel and stuff there were out of their way to meet our needs, and they are on top of everything. Just wonderful in every way. The photo opportunities are plentiful to get amazing shots with a lot of different backgrounds. All and all, my husband and I were very happy with this venue and we recommend it to all of our engaged friends. We couldn’t be happier with how everything went. All our expectations were met also our guests had great time.

We had our wedding reception in the Radisson Athlone in July 2021. After making the appointment to meet with Deon (wedding coordinator), we were able to see the function room overlooking the Shannon and how it would look like on the day of the wedding.
Straight away, we knew this would be our venue.
Over the following months, we communicated with Deon about the bigger and smaller matters of the day. Every request was met and detail attended to. She put us at ease and guided us throughout. On the evening of the wedding,
We were blessed with glorious sunshine as we arrived at the hotel by boat where we were met by the wedding team.
Guests were treated to a fine array of food and drink on arrival on the outside decking area as the sun shone on our special day. The meal which followed in the immaculately arranged function room was simply delicious and well received by our guests. A great night was had by all.
The following day, guests were again treated to more fine food as we reflected on the day before and relaxed by the river in the company of family and friends.
The wedding team and other members of the Radisson staff were friendly throughout and accommodated our every need.
We would strongly recommend the Radisson to engaged couples seeking a special experience. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we did. We will return.

From the moment we walked into the Radisson we felt very welcomed. The wedding coordinator was more than helpful and answered many questions that we had- and we had a lot!! We had also been given a glass of bubbles and a small Afternoon Tea plate and this was before we had even confirmed our reservation. This attention to detail and customer service really sealed the deal for us.
From the first point of contact, to the lead up to the big day, to the day of our wedding, was seamless.
We were very specific in how we wanted our day to run as both my husband and I worked for a long time in the hotel industry. From the table settings, to the room set up, to the quality of food and customer service- we couldn’t have asked for more.
Another added bonus was arriving at the hotel by BOAT!! My husband was delighted to live out his 007 dream haha!
Paula & Colin
What can I say about the Radisson Blu Athlone? Nothing and no words can explain the care, attention and support that was shown to myself and my now husband during the planning, preparing and running of our wedding when we did finally get to have it, after a nightmare time that was planning our wedding around a global pandemic.
The staff at the Radisson were fantastic. Nothing was too big or too small of a request and they had some great ideas of their own to share with us too. We ended up changing our date to 14 Aug 2020 and were able to go ahead with a very different wedding day to what we had planned but the Radisson made it one to remember. They went above and beyond to cater for our requests & last minute changes including hosting two separate drinks receptions back to back (one inside, one outside so we could see more of our guests and keeping to government guidelines on numbers). Our suppliers on the day said the staff were wonderful and constantly ensured they had everything they needed and were well fed at our drinks reception time.
Arriving on a boat on the Shannon was fantastic – our guests loved it and the photos are brilliant.
The reception room and entrance was exquisite with fairy light back drop, cherry blossom trees and fabulous centre pieces all included in the package. The food was amazing. We worked with the chef to choose our menu and wines and everyone loved the finger food, reception meal and desserts.
Our bridal suite was beautiful with a lovely card, bottle of bubbly and dessert tray waiting for us when we arrived. The organisation on the day was second to none and we are so happy that we were able to have our big day when we did.
Thank you all so so much for everything you did for making our day so special and run so smoothly. We can’t wait to come back for our anniversary meal & stay and see you all again. We wish the hotel and staff all the very best on reopening and hope wedding season comes back with a bang over the next few months.
Thank you so much,
Mr and Mrs Colin and Paula Mohan ❤
Frank & Pamela
