The food was superb and plenty of it! Hotel rooms were immaculate. All our guests are still raving about the hotel and what a great weekend they had. Thanks to one and all. We would highly recommend the Marriott for your special day. You will not be disappointed.” - Michael and Helena Slattery

“Peiyu and I want to thank you and all the staff at The Marriott Hotel for all your hospitality and top class service to us, our families and our special guests before, during and after our recent wedding celebration. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel exceptionally welcome, and it seemed as if nothing was too much trouble. For the size of the wedding we had it was the perfect location and everything we had planned for and hoped the day would be was turned into reality. The sun shining on the day was an added bonus! All our guests made very favourable comments about the hotel, the facilities and most importantly about the professional high standards of the hotel staff.” Graham and Peiyu Hartnett
“Ted & I had an absolutely fantastic day with yourselves, it was brilliant from start to finish. Every thing was planned to a T and took place just as we had hoped. The Hotel & staff pulled out all the stops for us. The room was decorated fabulously and the service was second to none, not to mention the food. All our guests commented on the service and food they experienced over the two days we were with you. Everything was so smooth Ted & I didn’t need to worry about anything. We were truly appreciative of the support Ciara & Georgina and team provided to us in the run up to the wedding. Every request from us was entertained and delivered on where possible. A large number of our guests chose to stay for two nights and they were all very impressed with the hotel and all its facilities. The staff at the Marriott made it the day we had hoped for and one we will never forget.“ Ted & Deirdre Cunningham
“We just want to say a big thank you for all your help leading up to the wedding and on the day. We were very pleased with the hotel and the food was out of this world, we had two butchers at the wedding and both said how fantastic the meat was. We looked at a lot of hotels in Dublin and the Northeast area but pound for pound your hotel was the best and delivered on all your promises. Thank you from the both of us.” Oisin & Audrey Geraghty
"It is over a year now since we held our wedding party at the Pilio Hotel formally the Marriott Ashbourne. We did it slightly different than the traditional Irish wedding. We got married abroad on the 12th May, we did not have any family or friends with us, so we wanted to mark the occasion on our return with them. We thought we would have a low key party with few guests but once planning started and the guest list was made the small low key function was quickly changed!! But it all worked out fantastic and we also got the best day weather wise of the whole summer. On the lead up to it before we travelled abroad I had a few meetings with Ciara. I explained to Ciara what we wanted, I really wasn’t sure how the whole thing would work out as I had never been to a wedding party before but Ciara was most helpful in the planning process and it all was very simple and so easy to plan. Anything I wanted or was worried about Ciara sorted it there and then or would phone me later on with an answer. We had our guests arriving at 6pm on 3rd June 2011 to the drinks reception. This was held in the bar area right outside the function room. The sparkling wine was flowing and it was a chance for James and I to meet and greet all our guests. Then we were all called into the function room for food at 7.30. The function room looked great with all the tables set up. We had about 150 guests so we had the full room, it was a great size. Georgina was the manager on duty that evening and she was brilliant, so efficient and helpful. We were having a buffet meal. I was concerned there would not be enough food to go around but that certainly was not the case, some guests went up 3 times for food! So needless to say the food was fantastic, we had 2 hot dishes and salads. We had a selection of mini desserts and wedding cake for dessert. We did not have speeches so once food was finished it was time for the DJ to start. The whole night went so well everyone enjoyed it greatly. We had great feedback from all our guests on the party and the hotel. So we both would highly recommend the Pillo Hotel for weddings." Bernice and James Byrne
