The picture below shows the sample wedding menus that were on offer in the Hermitage Hotel, Tuam 46 years ago. My grandparents used this brochure to choose the menu for their wedding meal. They chose the third option. The prices for the meals are all listed in old money. The hotel is now closed and the building was renovated and is now the credit union in Tuam.

  • Loved this work, well done. I was telling my mum about your story and she told me when she and my dad had their wedding reception at The Hermitage in 1968 they had menu 32/6 – Prawn Cocktail to start and Duck for main course – if you hadn’t written this story, I wouldn’t have known about my parents wedding meal. Thank you Keelin.
