Testimonials from our 2009 Brides and Grooms...
Dear Ciaran Kelly,
My husband and I held our Wedding Reception in the Landmark Hotel on Thursday June 18th 2009. Although, we are a little delayed in writing this note, please be assured that our sentiments are still the same.
I would like to sincerely thank the staff of The Landmark Hotel for making our wedding day so special. We were extremely impressed by the way everything was handled so professionally from start to finish.
In particular, I would like to mention the lovely Patricia Corrigan. From the first day we met Patricia for initial talks about our wedding, the assurance and the warmth we received from her immediately put our minds to rest and made our decision about where we wanted to host our wedding party an easy one.
Patricia was absolutely amazing throughout the entire planning process of our wedding with The Landmark. She engaged with all of our vendors - florist, photographer, bands, etc.
I heard from a number of people that Patricia was nominated for and won Wedding Coordinator of the Year and in our view and from the feedback we have received from our many guests, it was delightful news.
I would also like to say a special 'thank you' to your chef, Pat Connor, Daniel Cross the Beverage Manager and Dorcas Toop, your Reservation Manager.
Even now, our guests continue to comment about the beautiful meal and service which they received from The Landmark Hotel on the day of our wedding.
On a final note, we are very proud to have had our wedding in The Landmark Hotel and we thank you very much for making our wedding day truly magical.
With warm regards,
— Selina & Shiv, Jun 2009 (1st year anniversary letter)
To all the gang at The Landmark,
Thank you for the most amazing day ever. If I could tell you what to improve, it would be to stop time and make it all last longer! To Patricia, congratulations on the award (Wedding Coordinator of the Year!!!) we couldn’t have done it without your help. To the kitchen - the food was out of this world! I loved my Christmas Cookies and everyone is still talking about them! To Dorcas and the Reservation Team - you are legends! The Banqueting Staff - We couldn’t have asked for things to run more smoothly. Thank you all so much!

We wanted to write to you to say how happy we were with the service that The Landmark Hotel provided for us last October for our wedding. Everything was more than we expected. Our Wedding Coordinator was unbelievable - we have never see such a dedicated person. Everything was done to perfection, she was one step ahead of us at all times.
Our guests loved the hotel and the quality of the meal, so complements must also go to the kitchen and the service staff who were outstanding.

I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for all your help in the run up and on the day of the wedding. Words cannot express how much we all appreciated you from getting me excited when I thought I’d pull my hair out to pinning my dress up and being ready with the soft slippers when my feet hurt!! You are worth your weight in gold and The Landmark is so lucky to have you! Even my guests remarked at your dedication to our wedding! I really just wanted you to know that you played a huge part in making our day so special! Thank you so much again,

You have been an absolute star - David and I both have been raving on about you and the wonderful staff at The Landmark. No body could believe just how ‘hands on’ you were. It was truly an amazing day and you helped to make it all so special. We really can’t thank you enough.
— Vickie & David, September 2009
I would like to thank you and your wonderful staff for the assistance what was shown to our children and ourselves while we were celebrating my brother’s wedding. The attention and kindness of each member of staff that we came into contact with, during the celebrations, was beyond their call of duty.
I would like to especially point our the service shown, while the meal was on, to the children. The waitress that served us, while we were seated, was so attentive. She constantly checked on the children to see if there was anything that they needed or if I needed anything for them. Again, thank you!!!
There really is no other venue like ‘The Landmark’. Outstanding service again and again and always, when we have celebrated at The Landmark Hotel, there is something new that intrigues us with pure delight! The Landmark truly is one of the top venues to consider whatever the occasion!!!
— Nicole, September 2009
We’d like to say a very big thank you for all you did for us on and before our wedding day. Our wedding day was spectacular and the best day of our lives. Thank you for your personal touches, thought and expertise.

Dear Mr. Kelly,
I wish to congratulate you and your staff on the excellent service provided by The Landmark Hotel. On July 9th, my husband and I attended a Wedding Reception. We arrived on the 8th and departed on the 11th. When we checked in, we were made most welcome by your Receptionist and that was the theme until our departure.
As I am allergic to garlic, this can cause problems. However, this was not the case in your hotel. The staff had been made aware of my allergy in advance and provided me with a garlic free meal, quietly and efficiently. The ladies serving our table were excellent.
On the following day, as your Wedding Specialist waited at the door greeting guests for the wedding of that day, I spoke to her and complimented her and her staff. On mentioning my garlic problem, I was very impressed when she remembered my name and table number.
At breakfast, we felt very special each morning because of the manner Teresa and staff greeted and served us.
On the day of our departure, the lady who serviced our room wished us the best and hoped we enjoyed our stay.
From our experience, your staff should be compared to the Jewels in the Crown.
This was our first time in Carrick-on-Shannon and in your hotel, but it certainly will not but our last.
— Ann, July 2009
Just a note to say ‘Thank You’ for making our Wedding Day the best day of our lives. Everything was to the highest standard. Our guests are still raving about the service. Thanks for making our cake,the coolest cake ever!!!

Thank you for all your help on Friday. We had a wonderful day and everyone enjoyed themselves. We would like to thank all the staff in the Landmark for the perfect day.
— Helen & Peter, July 2009
Thank you sooo much for being incredible. You have made what was going to be a mammoth job so much easier for us.

I just wanted to say how everybody is talking about the Landmark Hotel… about the Wedding Coordinator who was there morning, noon and night. How well the hotel is run, how amazing the ballroom looked, the lights and table centerpieces were big hits and how splendid the food was. People expected a big air pocket between the beef and the pastry, they said they couldn’t believe the actual size of the beef! A few more people from work (who are used to wining and dining in hotels all over the world) said they could not find one thing to complain about – Not ONE! The ballroom and my wedding has been described by a number of people as like a ‘Wedding by Franc’!! We both really enjoyed the day more than we ever imagined, thanks to the Landmark Team.
— Anne & Adrian Constable, July 2009
We would like to sincerely thank you for all your amazing help last year. We don’t know what we would have done without you! You helped make our Wedding Day absolutely magical. Congrats to you and The Landmark on your award - It’s so well deserved. With love & best wishes.

Just a few words of thanks for all those who were involved in making our Wedding Day so memorable. We had such a wonderful day from start to finish. We, along with our entire Wedding Party were so impressed by the standard of professionalism & courtesy that the staff displayed. Above all else the way in which our Wedding Coordinator organized and coordinated all the elements of the day was why it was so successful. Everybody talked about the flawless way in which the day ran & that it was down to the Landmark Team. When people talked about the ballroom they used words like ‘enchanting’ and ‘fairytale like’. The food and wine was described as ‘First Class’ and the extra touches for the children who attended were much appreciated. The girls on reception were very accommodating and welcoming.
For making our dream a reality – Thank you!
— Geraldine & Seamus, June 2009
You made our wedding day and the lead up to it a most enjoyable and memorable experience for both of us. Thanks so much for everything.
— Love Caroline & Paddy, June 2009
Thanks again for your help on the lead up to the wedding and thanks to all your staff for your 15 star service! With 222 guests and no complaints this should be a reference to anyone that wants to book a wedding with you.
— Mary & Damien,Februrary 2009
We would like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ to all of you for making our day so special. Your Kindness and professional attitude in all you did was second to none. All of our guests really enjoyed themselves and spoke very highly of the wonderful food and friendliness of the staff. Our compliments also to the chefs and serving staff.
Thank you to Jennifer for all the driving to and from hairdressers and beauticians – much appreciated. To Fionola and all the reception staff who were so friendly and helpful throughout the day. To the porter who stood out in the terrible weather conditions to help our guests from their cars. To Veronica who served our table and made us all feel very at ease. To all the bar staff and night staff, your doorman ‘Martin’ for their patience! A special thank you to Daniel for looking after us so well and to our Wedding Coordinator – Tricia, what can we say – you are amazing at what you do.
Thank you, you should all be very proud in making your hotel the Perfect Venue!
