John and I would like to express a massive thank you for all the hard work you and the team put in to make our wedding a truly magical splendid day.Every thing was just perfect (including the weather, not sure how you managed that one, but thank you) we could not have wished for a better day.The service we received was exceptional, the food sensational, all off our guests were very impressed by your very high standards, and of course the location perfect.  

We can not thank you all enough, we will be returning next year to celebrate our anniversary with you, along with our guests.
Thank you for everything
Kindest regards,
John and Victoria


I would just like to thank Mohammad for all of his hard work and his attention to detail to ensure our wedding day was perfect. We couldn’t have asked for a better reception and it was all down to him! He is an absolute credit to the Hastings Group and without him – I honestly don’t think it would have been such a success. All of our wedding guests commented on how excellent he was, how he made sure everyone was happy & having a good time. He couldn’t have done enough for us from start to finish. I would recommend the Slieve Donard as an excellent setting for a wedding but more importantly because of the service you get with Mohammad. I hope his hard work is recognised as he is an absolute gem and am so pleased to have such a thoughtful person help out with our Big Day.

Please pass on our thanks to Mohammad & we will definitely be returning to the Slieve Donard in the future.

The venue was spectacular and the staff were fantastic. From the moment of booking getting details arranged was easy considering my fiancé and I are living in Canada at the moment. The staff were great, Laura dealt with all our arrangements until the week before and then Chris looked after the final details and the event on the day. Chris ran everything seamlessly and the wedding ran without a hitch.

It is now two weeks since Emma and Andrew’s wedding, and they are still on honeymoon.

I thought I should drop you a note to say that Emma’s mum and I are very pleased the way that the Slieve Donard met all our expectations.  We had many positive comments from our guests regarding the meal and how it was served. And I have to say there was plenty of fruit punch!

Please pass on my thanks to Chris and all concerned.

A job well done, thank you.

Our experience with the Slieve Donard was beyond spectacular. Coming from the United States, we thought we would have a difficult time planning a wedding abroad. However, Laura, Chris, and their staff were phenomenal. From answering every question we had before coming to Newcastle to the picture perfect reception, we could not have asked for a better experience. Every part of the reception, from the drinks reception, to dinner, to the dancing, to the evening buffet, went off without a hitch. We felt like a prince and princess throughout the evening, from receiving champagne with strawberries upon our arrival to having the plates set down for each part of the meal simultaneously. Moreover, coming from the US, we were amazed at the value of the Slieve Donard. We felt that they viewed our wedding as a truly unique and special day, not merely an "event" to get through. We would absolutely recommend the Slieve Donard without reservation, and hope that all of those who helped make our day as perfect as it was know how much of a role they played in our day. Thank you to the staff there and we hope to visit again on an anniversary in the future.
