Clanard Court Hotel is an excellent venue for a family wedding. It was a pleasure having Emma as our co-ordinator and friend from start to finish, as she left no stone unturned. The team, along with Emma, John & Eoin had a warm welcome for us on each occasion that we visited and the same was said by

our guests. The food is delicious with a wide variety of options to suite all tastes, food presentation was delightful, prompt and friendly service, all our dietary requirements were catered for. Due to the weather, we didn't get to use all of the garden facilities but they are everything that you need. Private, enclosed, picturesque garden with a children's play room suitable for all ages, it went down a treat. Also the fact you can view the garden from the function room is a bonus. The accommodation is fresh and comfortable, can't wait to return.

We had such an amazing day at the Clanard Court Hotel. The weather wasn't great on the day and we were so grateful for the chapel.

Emma, the co-ordinator is simply amazing. She went above and beyond for us, answering a million questions and meeting our requests for the day.

accommodated our last minute request for a function room on Day 2 and even called some bar staff back in who had gone home.

We would love to return for some anniversaries in the future as you are always looked after at the hotel.

We can’t rate Clanard Court Hotel highly enough. We were so happy with how everything went on the day from the food, excellent service, to the venue itself. All our guests were really happy and are still complimenting the hotel especially the food and service. Emma, John and the whole team were so

easy to deal with.

A special thanks to Emma for how helpful she was to us throughout the whole process and answered any queries we had straight away no matter how complicated they were! From our first meeting last year to view the venue we knew we were in good hands. We will most definitely be recommending the hotel to our friends as a wedding venue.

Can I just say the Clanard staff are one big dream team. Our day was fantastic from start to finish. The food was amazing. The grounds at the hotel are beautiful, they have a secret garden and a bonus new white chapel, where we had the pleasure of having our ceremony in. All the staff, were so

welcoming and helpful and go out of their way to make your day amazing. Nothing was ever too small or big. I wouldn’t fault this hotel in any way. From the minute you set foot in this hotel, you will want to book it. Emma and John are fantastic and will ensure the day goes smoothly and the way you want. All I can say is we had the best wedding day and can’t thank the Clanard team enough.

We got married in the Clanard Court Hotel on the 24/06/23. Booking the hotel was the best thing we ever did. Emma Ferris is an amazing wedding coordinator, you just tell her what you want and she makes it happen. Our ceremony was in the Little White Chapel, a truly unique setting. Our photos were

taken in the gardens so there was no need to move from the venue meaning we actually got to enjoy some time at the drinks reception. The food was exceptional, piping hot and the service provided by John Kelly and his team was outstanding. Everything about the hotel is 5 Star. By the end we felt like part of the family.
