Dear Noel I would like to thank you and your team at Lydon House for your very valuable contribution to the overall success on the Fire & Ice New Year’s Eve Ball.  I spoke to Brian & Pat & other members of the team & I would like to compliment them on the professionalism, strong service ethic & “can do” approach which greatly helped with getting the final touches in place leading up to the event.  On the night service was excellent.  The salmon main course came into special mention from a large number of guests.  Larry O’Connor, Tuam Cancer Care..

We have been coming to the Galway Races for over 10 years and have found Fiona & the team so professional and easy to deal with.  When working with Lydon House Catering you never have to worry about any of the details, just turn up on the day and you are guaranteed the best hospitality in Ireland.  This is the highlight trip of our year and already looking forward to next year.

Dear Noel, Fiona, Brian & Pat, I would like to take this opportunity to “SINCERELY THANK YOU” for your professionalism in making Knocknacarra Parish Faith Gathering a Special Event on Sat last June 15th.  Everything was done to perfection and over 2000 people fed with good tasty food in less than one hour.  It was a pleasure dealing with you and indeed all of your team on the day.  It made our preparation for the day so much easier to know we were dealing with such professional people.  I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to anyone considering a celebration of any kind. God Bless, Fr Tadgh
