A golfing jewel in the heart of Ireland
A wedding venue that we love going back to time and time again is Glasson Country House Hotel and Golf Club in Athlone. What makes it so unique is not only the location but the warm family run atmosphere you find there. The staff are always so welcoming and no query you may have, big or small, seems to be of any issue to them.
Right now, you are probably looking at numerous locations for your wedding and reception. Glasson Country House Hotel and Golf Club is a 4-star family-run hotel in Athlone, Westmeath, which has been successfully holding wonderful weddings for over 15 years.
This hotel is unique...located on the inner lakes of Lough Ree and as you drive into it, the setting is breathtaking!!!
Having worked in the hotel industry in Ireland with CmC Photography and the Heebie Jeebies band we would pick up on small details that wedding venues have to offer and this hotel covers it all. The attention to detail from management and staff is always second to none. Nothing ever seems to be any trouble and we always look forward to the friendly and welcoming atmosphere this Hotel offers. The food is amazing and a high level of service from the time of check in, to the bar, banqueting suite and bedrooms ensures your day will run smoothly.
In our opinion there is no other banqueting suite that we have seen that is designed in order to display such a spectacular view while you dine. The Spectacular Dillon Room, opened in May 2010 with Floor to ceiling Windows overlooks Lough Ree and gives a unique wedding experience. It caters for up to 320 Guests and offers Menus to suit all tastes. Stepping out on to the balcony at the end of your wedding night you will see the lights of Athlone glistening in the distance and it can feel as though you are in a different country.
Glasson is a former family farm with a manor house that dates to 1780. The former farm is now one of the best golf courses in Ireland and the golf club has superb views of Lough Ree and the surrounding countryside. Beautiful 4-star rooms and suites with views of the lake and golf course are right upstairs after the wedding which is a treat in itself.
“The Glasson Experience should be bottled and given to all involved in Irish Weddings.” Weddings Are Extremely Special at Glasson Hotel and the Hotel goes all out to make sure that everyone has a wonderful weekend. From the moment the bride, groom, and family arrive, you'll be pampered and provided with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. In our opinion, if you are looking for a spectacular venue for a wedding and want to leave the stress and strain behind, choose this hotel and you will not be disappointed. The golf course is incredible and the local village has good pub/restaurants too. It is a premier wedding venue with a sterling reputation.
