Wedding Testimonials

From the beginning the girls especially Joelene and Sinead took care of us. They continually kept in contact with us throughout the pandemic and put our minds at ease. Even when our numbers had to be cut 10 days prior to our wedding they reassured us that we would have the best day and they weren’t wrong.
The setting of the hotel is Great with beautiful views. The function room was dressed to perfection by the staff. The service and food were amazing and the bedrooms are so clean and spacious. The honeymoon suite is simply amazing.
We would like to thank all the staff at the inishowen gateway for giving us one of the most amazing days of our lives. Our guests had the best day ever and we can’t wait to return to the gateway

We had the best day ever and everything went so smoothly, all thanks to you, Patricia and all your staff. 

Nothing was a problem and Patricia kept us updated regularly and was fantastic. Every guest has commented on the excellent food and the amazing service and i think all the staff on the day should be proud. The guests that stayed over were also amazed by the breakfast.  A few guests are considering having their own wedding here now so fingers crossed you get a few bookings of it. I would highly recommend your hotel to anybody and again I just want to express my sincere thanks for all your help over the last two years and especially on the day. 5* treatment!

We recently had our Wedding Reception at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel - We cannot praise the venue and staff enough. The Inishowen Gateway took care of us from start to finish, and went above and beyond for us – we could not have asked for more! With so much to plan for a wedding, knowing that we had such expertise on hand to look after all the details of our wedding reception was invaluable. Nothing was too much trouble and Sinead, Joleene and Chrissy were always happy to talk with me and to make changes, even on the day itself. It was so reassuring having people so professional and friendly running the day. The reception room was just beautiful – the attention to detail second to none. The food was delicious, presentation impeccable and served so quickly. We had so many guests comment that they thoroughly enjoyed every course. Throughout, we were made to feel really special and the day/night was amazing for us, and for our guests. We would definitely recommend the Inishowen Gateway Hotel for a wedding. Thank you all so much for helping to make our day so special!

The day ran so smoothly from start to finish. Our wedding coordinator was Sinead and she was just brilliant nothing was too much trouble and she made us feel so at ease. On the day the food and service were both great and we couldn’t fault it and the staff are so helpful. The views from the Lisfannon Suite are just amazing over Lough Swilly and the bridal suite also looked over it. The bridal suite is fab it’s the biggest I’ve seen and we availed of the second night staying in it compliments of the hotel. We had guests staying for 4-5 nights and they couldn’t fault the hotel or staff. They really helped us make our day amazing.

We both had an absolutely fantastic day with you. The hotel staff made us so welcome, and really looked after the guests. Food was excellent. Management was fab, making sure we got some time to take a breath and keeping an eye that everything was ok the following day too. It was lovely how nothing was ever a bother including trying out a new layout for the Swilly room with the fairylights at the top wall etc. We really appreciated that and think it all worked really well especially with the band. We certainly had absolutely brilliant feedback from our guests that they had an excellent time, loved the food and very much enjoyed the hotel. The whole process though was great from the beginning, a very relaxed but more than competent vibe, which made me sure you were the hotel to go with even before Brendan got home to meet Siobhan and Sinead. Even though the Inishowen Gateway does weddings as often as the rest of us make dinners, you still made us feel like ours was special. Thanks so much!

After attending many weddings in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, both my husband and I had no problems deciding where our wedding reception would be. We both live in London and planning the wedding from here felt a bit daunting. From the word go, we felt at ease and in good hands. Sinead and Siobhan could not do enough for us on the run up to the wedding and helped us in every way they could. On the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and as planned. Marie, Chrissie and all staff were fantastic on the day and helped make our wedding day stress free and perfect! The food was absolutely beautiful and I love the way that everyone is served at the same time. We had lots of wedding guests stay in the hotel and everyone commented on how welcome they felt in the hotel. I could go on forever and talk about how great the Inishowen Gateway Hotel is for a wedding but their reputation alone speaks for itself. Thank you to everyone in the Inishowen Gateway Hotel for making our day so special.

Our day ran so smoothly and we could not have asked for better. Our guest’s commented on how much they enjoyed their food and their stay. We and a lot of our family and friends stayed two nights and we could not fault it. Sinead helped myself and Peter so much in the run up to the wedding making the whole process very easy and on the day all the staff, food, room was first class. I have to compelment the reception girls, so lovely and helpful. We can’t wait to return for our 1 year anniversary...and many more after that. Again thank you for everything. Fiona and Peter
