Anna Connaughton, Wedding Coordinator, Sheraton Athlone Hotel said, “Due to emigration we have seen a large volume of enquiries coming from overseas, where couples want to come home and get married with their family and friends. In most cases they are unable to travel home to see the venue before they book and generally rely on parents and siblings for advice.” For further information contact the team on 090 6451000 or email reservations@sheratonathlonehotel.com
