No. 1 Pery Square Hotel & Spa, Limerick
I have had the pleasure of performing at the No.1 Pery Square hotel and Spa over the last few years. This is a charming family run hotel located in the Georgian quarter of Limerick City. It is run by Patricia Roberts and her team of top class staff who make every visit to the hotel a memorable experience. I have performed here on numerous occasions for events ranging from weddings to afternoon tea. This post is my way of sharing my experiences and insights of the hotel with you.
The Georgian drawing room has to be my favourite space in the hotel. It boasts a decorative fireplace with a large overhanging mirror as its central focal point. The sash windows, adorned with floor length curtains provide a view of The People’s Park, Limerick city’s principal parkland (A popular location for wedding photos). This elegant room is an ideal space for different events and occasions. I have seen its versatility many times and its transformation to reflect the individuality of each event never ceases to impress me.
The long room, inspired by simplicity and pride is another great space that the hotel has to offer. In December 2019, this room played host to Mark and Suzanne’s drinks reception. I performed beside the contemporary fireplace which was adored with fairy lights. The whole hotel was seasonally decorated to give it that Christmasy feel.
I have also seen the Sash Restaurant, the hotels more formal dining room in action. It is located on the first floor of the hotel and another space I have provided entertainment in. The beautiful Georgian street scape can be viewed from this eloquent room. The hotel describes the food as ‘home cooking with an extra layer of sophistication’ and it is truly delicious. As a regular performer and customer I have sampled the food and would highly recommend it.
If you are looking to have an intimate wedding I cannot recommend the No.1 Pery Square Hotel enough. They can comfortably fit 85 people in the drawing room and there is an option to exclusively hire the hotel in its entirety. The weddings that I performed for have opted for this option and the comfort and privacy for you and your guests is a real bonus.
As businesses prepare to reopen, I urge you to support local during this impending time of challenge. Be sure to look out for other special events being run by the No.1 Pery Square Hotel, you never know some of them might even include harp music or other special types of entertainment.
