We got married at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Galway in August 2016. When we were looking at hotels to have our reception after getting engaged the previous July, we met with Jean O’Grady from the Radisson. From the very first minute we met Jean we knew we had the perfect location and the perfect person to help us prepare for our big day.
In the run up to our wedding day and in the preparations for our big day Jean was extremely professional and a dream to work with. Without Jeans help we could not have had the fantastic day we had. Jean was very willing to listen to any little concern or idea we may have had and advised us on a perfect solution each time.
From the moment we arrived to the Veranda Lounge for our reception drinks after our wedding ceremony everything was perfect! The Veranda Lounge was brilliantly set up and helped our guests to mingle and get them in to a relaxed and carefree mood, and the canapes were delicious!
The main ballroom was splendidly laid out and the wedding tables looked amazing on the day. The bar was well staffed by brilliant staff and our guests never had to wait long to get a drink. The food was absolutely amazing and our guests are still complimenting us on our venue choice and the meal they received. This is all thanks to the Radisson!
We stayed overnight for 3 nights during our wedding weekend and the staff at the Radisson were very attentive to our presence and ensuring our stay was perfect! They could not have done any more for us, we were so impressed by their professionalism!
To Jean and the rest of the staff of the Radisson Blu Hotel Galway thank you so much for making our Wedding Day all that more special, we will never forget it!
Nessa & Giovanni, August 2016
We got married on the 11th June 2016 and we decided on the Radisson Blu Hotel in Galway as our reception venue - we are so delighted that we did. From start to finish the service was exceptional. Jean - our wedding coordinator was a dream! Nothing was too much trouble! She helped us every step along the way in every way that she could! Jean is professional, experienced and made planning our wedding so easy and so much fun! You can tell how dedicated she is to her job and her clients - I cannot praise her enough for everything done for us from the build up to our day to the end of our wedding day. She made us feel so special and for that we will be forever grateful to her.
The staff...WOW! From start to finish they were fantastic. The venue looked amazing! It had a major WOW factor! Our guests could not praise the food, the venue and the staff enough. The bar staff were excellent! They were catering for a big wedding and no one had to wait or que at the bar. The managers were very attentive and made sure all went to plan (we felt like all we had to do was turn up). From start to finish I cannot praise the staff enough! We were three days in this hotel and we felt like royalty. The staff always engaged with us and made our stay so much fun! We didnt want to go home!
I would definitely recommend Jean and the staff to any couple looking for a relaxing, fun and amazing wedding! We would probably insist that you have them! We will never forget our wedding day thanks to Jean all the staff in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Galway! They couldn't do enough for us and for that we will be eternally grateful!

From our first meeting with Jean right through to our departure from the hotel after the wedding everything was superb. We felt that all of our requests were met with positivity and nothing was an issue as the team made sure our day surpassed our expectations. Furthermore all of our guests were really impressed with the venue, food and accommodation.

The Radisson Blu Hotel from start to finish was an absolute pleasure to deal with. The wedding co-ordinator Jean is a credit to the establishment and at every turn she gave us her best.
The attention to detail, service, food and the overall experience as a bride and groom was exceptional.
I am just so pleased with the entire experience and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you sincerely from the bottom of my heart for making our day so special.
I am genuinely so happy we booked the hotel and most of all I couldn't fault anything or any part of the experience. I am so impressed and would highly recommend the hotel for weddings events and everything in between. Christina & Brian ,April 2016
"We celebrated our wedding in July and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day thanks to the Radisson Blu hotel. Our wedding planner Jean was exceptional and went above and beyond in creating a perfect day. The food and service was outstanding and the fairytale atmosphere in the ballroom was beautiful. We stayed in the hotel a second night and our guests and families were treated to an amazing BBQ in our own private bar with outdoor seating and amazing food. We would like to thank Jean for making our wedding so special and creating a day which we will never forget "
Breda & Rory, July 2014
"What can we say other than it was everything we expected and more! It was the wedding of our dreams all thanks to the wonderful staff at the Radisson Blu Hotel Galway. A special thanks to our Wedding Co-ordinator Jean who from day one was a massive support system and always on hand to answer any questions we may have!
We cannot recommend a Hotel more than the Radisson Galway."
Marie & Darren, May 2014
"After our very first meeting with Jean, we chose the Radisson as our wedding venue without hesitation. Jean was absolutely wonderful to deal with throughout the whole process and our every request was fulfilled. The day itself was superb, the food was sensational and every member of staff was professional and most obliging. We would recommend the Radisson to anyone wishing to have a stress-free and 5-star service experience!"
Ceola & John, December 2013
"We were both absolutely delighted with how everything went on the day, you and the staff of the Radisson were excellent and you had everything perfect for us - just as you said. The bridal suite was beautiful and thank you for the bouquet of flowers, they were such a treat! We did not want to leave on the Monday morning, we would have stayed another few days :)"
Michelle & Patrick, July 2013
"As we are both living in Dublin it really helped and made me at ease knowing that I didn't have to worry about our reception as I knew it was all taken care of and all in good hands.
It made the planning even more enjoyable that our minds were at ease so thank you all. My only negative is that we can't do the whole day all over again! Thank you so much. "
Carol & Mick, May 2013
"Thanks to all the staff who played a part in looking after us at our meal and in the bar also. There was not 1 thing we were disappointed with."
Eleanor & Darren, March 2013
"We really enjoyed having our wedding at the Radisson in Galway. Catherine, Jean and all the staff went the extra mile to ensure everything went perfectly- even when we arrived over an hour early! They were on hand from as soon as we had booked with them, helping with menus, table names, wedding favours anything that needed to be done. Their experience with handling weddings was invaluable ensuring we hadn't overlooked anything. In short, we couldn't recommend them highly enough, have your reception at the Radisson and you're guaranteed an enjoyable, delicious, professional and stress-free ending to your special day"
Elaine & John, December 2012

Jim & Nelia, October 2012
"Big thank you to you and all the staff at the Radisson. Myself and Aoife could not have been happier with how the whole weekend went for us and all our guests. From the accommodation to the food to the facilities and of course the friendly and professional manner of both you and every other member of staff there we could not have asked for any better!"
Adrian & Aoife, September 2012

Yvonne & Dermot, July 2012
"A very big thank you for everything. All your hard work and patience were much appreciated - the day was fantastic, everything went really well and we're delighted with the day."
Philomena & Kevin, July 2012
"A huge thanks to all the staff at the Radisson for helping make our wedding day so memorable. When we looked at the Radisson first we had already booked a hotel for our day but after meeting with Catherine and seeing the hotel and facilities we quickly changed our minds.The rooms were spotless and modern while the spa facilities were just what we and our guests needed the day before the wedding.
It was a huge decision for us to change hotel but in the end it turned out to be a blessing and we are both so happy we did. Catherine was so easy going and professional we immediately felt confident to go and focus on all the other preparations, knowing that she would take care of everything for us. Nothing was too much hassle. On our big day the hotel was fantastic. All of our guests commented on how friendly the staff were and the dinner menu was a hit. As the majority of our guests were travelling cross country the hotel location was an added bonus. Being so central meant a lot of our guests could travel by trainor bus if they wanted and the day after was easy to arrange with all that Galway has to offer on our doorstep. All in all it was a fantastic day and we really couldn’t have asked for more, we would definitely recommend the Radisson to any of our friends. Thanks again for everything."
Lisa & Liam, June 2012
"The Wedding Day of our dreams, made possible by the hard working, friendly and attentive staff of the beautiful Radisson Hotel. Our dessert buffet was the highlight of the night, thank you to Roy the Head Chef who surprised me by taking on board my spring theme and colouring the meringues to match my bridesmaid dresses! Thank you to Catherine, James, John, Roy and all of the team you are all fantastic, a brides dream! Thank You."
Jennifer & John, March 2012
"We would like to thank the staff of the Radisson, especially Catherine, for the excellent service provided to us and our guests on our Wedding Day. From our initial meeting, Catherine was a huge support in answering any queries we had and happy to help with any additional things we asked for. Everything was easy and efficient - it was really great to know that the venue and food could be ticked off the list! When we had our tasting to select the menu, we met with both Catherine and the head chef. The food was excellent but I can honestly say, that it was equally good, if not better on the actual day when the kitchen was catering for far bigger numbers. We had so many super comments regarding the food!!! I would certainly be happy to recommend the Radisson Blu Galway to anyone." Thanks again.
Ciara & Nils, March 2012
"Just want to say a big Thank you for all your help leading up to the wedding and on the Day. We were so pleased with the Hotel and our meal was out of this world, everyone is still talking about it we really enjoyed it. The function room was lovely and the staff. I cannot thank you enough for giving us the best day."
Catherine & Padraig, December 2011
"Thanks very much for all your help in planning our wedding, you were a calming influence throughout which really helped ease any worries we may have had. We had great praise of the Radisson as a whole, from the food down to the quality of the bedrooms and hotel. We really enjoyed our meal as did everyone else so please pass on our thanks to the Chef. Thanks also for checking in with our parents to ensure they had everything they needed in order to make the day perfect for them. We had a great day so thanks so much for ensuring everything ran smoothly."
