We look forward to using the Galgorm again next year!"

Many of those who attended remarked how they'd enjoyed last year's dinner so we were particularly pleased when the high standard from last year was so comprehensively met, and if anything exceeded! Please pass on our thanks to your team and particularly Victoria who helped us finalise our plans; and James, who oversaw their delivery in impeccable fashion and was attentive to our every need on the night.

It was a pleasure working with you and your team."


"A highlight of our event was the help and attention of the staff, especially our duty manager, who was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble which was invaluable as this was a particularly busy event with a lot going on and delegates arriving throughout. This was the second time I used Galgorm for my programme and would happily do so again. Many thanks to all the staff on duty that day and evening."

Nothing was too much trouble and every detail was followed through. The facilities were excellent and the equipment was first class - there was always someone on hand to cater for any of our needs as well. Our lunch was excellent and really good value for money too - all our delegates were very happy and we'll definitely be booking with Galgorm again in the near future. "

"Dear Oliver,

I would like to express my appreciation & thanks to yourself and all the staff involved in the organising and carrying out of their duties of the Scott & Moore Wedding on 28th April 2012.

The Meal especially was praised by all that attended including the efficient way & manner the waiters & waitresses all attended each & every table.

Myself, Pamela & Raymond (now Mr & Mrs Moore) also would like to mention James who seems to be a very dedicated member of staff, who made all very welcome plus his attendance to any matter that was brought to his attention was carried out in a very professional & efficient manner.

Also the personality of the staff at Reception made you feel very comfortable. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Galgorm to a friend, relative or stranger.

Again our appreciation & thanks.

Just a note to thank you and the staff at Galgorm for the very professional way our Wedding Reception was managed on the 12th January past.
