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!

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 ❤
