Aogán and Karen Dunne are extremely excited to have recently become proud new owners of the Glenside Hotel, Dublin Road, Drogheda. With over twenty years’ experience in the Hospitality Industry, this local couple are no strangers to the hotel business and are said to be thrilled with their new purchase. The Glenside Hotel is a long established hotel operating since 1968.
Aogán and Karen’s main focus is on weddings and they hosted a wedding showcase last Thursday week and the event went really well.
Karen told the County Leader: “We had the function room fully set up for a wedding and the room was fully draped, which we used as an incentive for people to book.
“We offered complimentary full draping and lighting for people who paid their deposit on the night. This normally costs €1250, so it was a nice incentive for couples to book their weddings on the night. The response was excellent with many couples taking up this offer.
“We also had an informal fashion show of bridal wear and grooms’ wear also. As many as 50 couples turned up on the night. We had a registration table ready and we took details from every couple that came and each one got a goody bag, with prosecco, chocolate, cupcakes and other nice things.
“The next project is working on our new wedding brochure before our next showcase, which will be held on 7th June next. We’re going to develop the new wedding brochure to coincide with the menu section of it. We plan to really showcase the hotel and the function room, as well as the garden which is one of our top selling points,” she said.
