The staff at the Clanard were fantastic, Emma John, and Eoin were always on hand to help us with any queries we had. The day ran so unbelievably smoothly that we didn't have to think of a thing. Even if we had thought of something Emma and John were already doing it! We felt like the Clanard wanted

us to have the best day ever, it felt so personal.

With the Clanard Court Hotels package you don't have to worry about a thing except showing up on the day! Their trusted suppliers went above and beyond for us. We would highly recommend this award-winning venue and it is so obvious that they are the best in business. Everything from the decor, the rooms the unbelievably polite and helpful staff, the food, and the drinks was so amazing and we can only thank The Clanard for truly the best day of our lives

The most amazing day of our lives and honestly the hotel went above and beyond. Owen, Emma, and John were amazing to deal with. We viewed a few venues and from the moment we landed in the clanard and met with Emma and the staff.

We knew there and then that’s where we wanted to have our day.

They were so helpful with every single step of the way. And can I just say how incredibly sound they are like honestly we can’t thank them all enough. Even for the menu tasting, Owen gave us his tips and advice.

Emma was fantastic any single time I needed advice she was there and never made a single issue of anything, she is fantastic to deal with. John on the day reassured us and kept us in the loop all the time and was so friendly honestly highly recommend this hotel it’s stunning but it was the staff that made us make our decision and we are so happy we did.

We had the most perfect day at the Clanard Court Hotel. From the time I booked I had Emma on hand to help me with everything. Emma was absolutely exactly what we needed to help us get our wedding the way we wanted it. Every detail was perfect. Meal tasting was great to help decide what we wanted to

eat, and the food was truly lovely. The chefs produced detailed food of the highest standard for the wedding, everybody was talking about how good it was!

The venue, function room and the accommodation were also perfect, exactly what anyone would want for their wedding. Comfortable, clean and with the most helpful and kind staff! The grounds were ideal for photos, the little White Chapel was decorated with beautiful flowers and it was beautiful! I really would recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to anyone looking for a venue to get married, I promise you will not be disappointed!

We had our day at Clanard Court Hotel on 14th October 2023 and it was AMAZING!

friendly and helpful. Service on the day was out of this world nobody could do enough for us and our guests and everyone commented on how brilliant the staff were. A special mention must be given to Emma our wedding coordinator she is unreal at her job! She was always there with quick replies and advice even when I was asking questions about silly things she was there from day dot helping any way she could. Emma is a true asset to the hotel!

Another special mention needs to be given to John who went above and beyond looking after us and our guests. He was on the ball all day and night and really looked after everyone. Everything ran so smoothly, like a dream thanks to John. His wealth of knowledge and experience reflects in his work and we're so grateful to have had him oversee our day.

The food was absolutely gorgeous everyone was raving about it. Nobody went hungry either as there was plenty of food all day/night. My mother in law and sister in law are coeliac and the chef made sure there was always something suitable available for them. My mother in law also said it was the nicest coeliac meals she's ever had!

If we had to do our day over again we would chose Clanard Court Hotel every time, 100 times over, everything was perfect.

Emma, John, Eoin and all the team at Clanard Court Hotel thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special xx
