Abbeyleix Manor hotel

Over the years filming wedding videos I have come across some fabulous hotels and this week is all about  Abbeyleix Manor Hotel .

Abbeyleix Manor hotel - Abbey video productions The Abbeyleix Manor Hotel  is a family owned & managed hotel near Portlaoise and is perfect for business and pleasure, offering stylish and comfortable guestrooms for the business traveller and the ideal base for exploring the hidden beauties of County Laois and its surrounds. But as a wedding venue I would have to say it’s a fantastic hotel and give it 10 out of 10!

With  years of experience in hosting wedding receptions, the team have built up a reputation for consistency in quality of food, service and atmosphere. They have hosted the wedding receptions of sons & daughters of past Brides and Grooms, a testament to their ability as a Wedding Venue.

I must say, a bite to eat for the guests as they arrive, sometimes after a long drive, is very welcome and appetising and the food in this hotel certainly was all that and more!

It’s then time for me to go to the wedding reception room to film the little details the couple might have placed on tables etc.  The room layout is always impeccable – clean and well laid out. Toilets are fresh, clean and very well serviced.

This is a sign of a well run hotel with a great team. believe me a lot of hotels drag their feet on this important part! The couple are applauded into the room with their favourite piece of music which can be great fun.  You can choose your menu from a wide selection of mouthwatering dishes and believe me, I have sampled both the wedding and the bar food and the quality is second to none!  One great thing about the hotel is that they make sure all the guests are back in the function room at 9.30 for the first dance and evening entertainment. Now thats the way to run a business and a wedding day!

Well done to this wonderful family run hotel, but don’t just take my word for it, check out their website at abbeyleixmanorhotel.com for yourself!
