We are both living in Dublin and decided to get married in the Auburn Lodge as my other half's family are from west Clare. We had visited the hotel a few times and once it was booked the planning began. The main reason we …
Organising it all from Dublin was a daunting task but the staff were amazing. Anything small or big I requested or thought was too much was looked after. James was a god send to me! I would have been a nervous wreck had I not had his help. Alot of our family made a weekend trip out of it with our wedding being on the Saturday. Each and every guest had huge praise for the hotel - alot of which have said they would definitely be going back for a visit. The weekend went so quickly but it is a weekend I will never forget. Myself and my other half had the time of our lives. James, Gearoid in the bar and Edna were amazing. Cannot praise them enough!!!

Planning was made easy by James' easy-going but professional manner, and none of our outlandish suggestions were dismissed. The tasting was great and the chef took on board all of our …
Everything was perfect on the day, Edna looked after the top table like we were family, and the rest of the table and bar staff were great. No one had a bad word to say about anyone involved and both of our families had a ball.

We are so happy we chose the Auburn Lodge for our wedding reception in February 2015.
We visited several hotels in Ennis and surrounding area in December 2013 and our last stop was the Auburn Lodge. On meeting Ann Marie, we found her so easy going, friendly and professional. We had tea by the …
Ann Marie and all of the staff at the Auburn made our dream day happen. The day went so smoothly without a glitch. We received
endless compliments on every aspect of the reception, from the room to the
staff, the service, attention to detail and the wonderful food.
The room looked beautiful and all of our last minute changes to the seating plan were accommodated.
You all did such an amazing job, Ann Marie, Edna, Tanya, Mary, James, Daniel,
Gertrude, Donal and many more that we're not naming here. And of course not forgetting the chef!
The lamb got rave reviews and there were a few who had the veg curry and said it was lovely.
Thank you for saving the day and collecting my parents wedding photo in town when we realised that we had forgotten it. Just little things like that show what a high standard of customer service exists in the Auburn Lodge.
We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough!

Ann Marie, is just amazing. From the first day I walked in the door for a look, she bent over backwards to help me. Nothing was a problem. I went into a lot of hotels without an appointment, and the auburn lodge was definitely the best. The …
I had family staying from England. They all stayed a few nights, they said the food was great, and staff are all really lovely.
The wedding day was just brilliant
Everyone said the meal was great
And when I asked them if they liked the food, they all said, "I'm stuffed "
What more can I say. I'm one very happy customer.
Thank you so much.

We had a civil ceremony in the Garden room, which was decorated so beautifully. We then had our reception in the main room, where our dinner was served on time & piping hot, which is very hard to do for 120(app) compliments to the chef & kitchen staff not only was the food hot it was absolutely gorgeous, & plentiful. All the staff on the day were very friendly & helpful & all work very hard to make sure everything is just as you want it.
I must also compliment James the hotel manager, who is a lovely gentlemen, who is also hands on & always available to help & assissist.
The Auburn's Bridal suite is decorated to a good standard & comfortable, just what's needed after such a beautiful day!
I would recommend The Auburn Lodge for your future wedding, not only is it a nice venue which serves great food, you will not get more attentive staff

We were very impressed with the wedding packages and especially what was included. Nothing seem to be too much trouble, plenty of rooms were kept for our wedding guests and even when a few alterations needed to be made with bookings this was done with ease. Our guests who stayed were all happy with their rooms, most of who were in the newer rooms. The older style rooms were still spotlessly clean and in great condition, only the decor was dated.
When our special day was finally upon us I was blown away by the way the room was set up, it was just beautiful much more than I expected. Ann Marie was there bright and early making sure everything was in place and putting our minds at rest. The service was fabulous, I can not complement the staff in the hotel enough. Everyone seemed to have a smile, time for a conversation, to answer (many) questions, or just to have a bit of craic. The food was great, I loved the touch of having the butter shaped into hearts. Bigger appetites were catered for with extra meat being bought round after the mains were served, need more potatoes and vegetables? Not a problem they just magically appeared. Even when some of our guest did not arrive until the mains were being served this was not a problem they were soon receiving their starters. Our server even helped to mind our little man so we could eat our meals. I have run out of space to write anymore, other than to say we were very glad we chose the Auburn lodge for our reception.

Kiara; The girls and I stayed the night before and got ready at the hotel with hair and makeup coming to us. The hotel had no problem with anything we needed …
Sean; We had a great day, so did our guests. Anyone who stayed were impressed with their rooms and the food was tasty with good portion size. The hotel staff from the cleaners to the managers were great everytime we visited in the run up and on the day and I know Kiara felt better knowing Ann Marie was on the case. Highly recommended.

The food from beginning to end was first class and all guests agreed (Food on arrival, the main meal and the food for the afters were yummy not to mention the breakfast. Edna did our table service on the day as well as the night of the tasting and she is a lovely lady and was very helpful. The bridal suite had lovely touches on the day and night. I can 100% recommend this venue for any wedding and the pictures that were taken out the back garden of the Auburn came out lovely, just.
Thank you so much
From the newly married couple Dermot & Yvone Ryan

The hotel hosted our entire event, we had a Civil Ceremony in the Garden Suite and the room was very nicely decorated and we had access to the sound system and a video projector where I showed a personalised …
We had booked Atomic Chicken as our wedding band and they performed their new wedding package which included Swing music during the drinks reception, We held the drinks reception in a private area next to the main function room and our guests were able to relax for an hour or two before the meal.
The room Function room itself was lovely, very well decorated and set up, the meal itself was outstanding. We couldn't have asked for nicer food for our guests and we got many very positive comments. The waiting staff were very friendly and we opted for a package that included wine with the meal, our guests were all happy with the quality of the wine and the level of service they received.
We opted for the fish and chips option for the 'afters' food and again, the food was lovely, and there was plenty to go around.
We were very pleased with the service provided by the Auburn lodge. They catered for all of our needs professionally and with courtesy, and of all the venues we looked at for our wedding, the Auburn Lodge was by far the best value for the package we received.
I highly recommend the Auburn lodge, the wedding Co-ordinator Ann-Marie couldn't do enough for us, and James made sure that we always had everything we needed. And a special word of thanks to Edna, a member of the waiting staff who is worth her weight in gold.
