I would highly recommend the Clanard Court as a wedding venue. If you are looking for a personal touch where you feel like the staff and hotel care about your day as much as you do, then choose the Clanard. The wedding coordinators Emma and Claire literally leave no stone unturned in the run up to

your big day. They reply to queries and emails so quickly (and I sent a fair few).
On the day itself the operations manager John amazing. He kept us in the loop with what was happening throughout the day and always made sure we were being looked after.
The food was unbelievable. We knew the food was lovely from staying at the Clanard Court on previous occasions and of course the menu tasting. However, when your guests tell you that’s the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding, it’s a great feeling. Everyone was raving about the food and the overall ambiance of the hotel. The hotel is so relaxed yet they can’t do enough for you.
One thing I remember from my day is pulling up outside the hotel before the ceremony and it was raining. Emma and another member of staff were reading and waiting for me to get out of the car with umbrellas. This made me feel so special and in good hands. It may seem small, but the little touches and the way I was looked after really added to my day. They also provided the groom with the family room to get ready in the morning of the wedding at a good rate. This gave the lads plenty of extra space to get ready. They really just go above and beyond for you. Everyone at our wedding loved the day. It’s less than an hour from Dublin which makes it an deal venue if you don’t want guests to have to travel too far. Clanard Court is an amazing wedding venue.

We arrived on the day and The staff seen my flowers and changes some decorations there and then to match, everything was perfect! Every request we had was met with an “absolutely no problem” We had the best day of our lives here and we were made feel so special, I felt like a princess all day! My sister got married here before me and I hope my little sister will follow the new tradition.

I cannot praise the staff at the Clanard Court Hotel enough for all they did for us. From the very moment we sat down with Emma and Claire we knew we were in good hands. They, along with the rest of the staff, made our day as stress free and beautiful as possible. Myself and my husband did not have

to worry about anything and all our concerns were answered and dealt with. Gosia is an incredible event coordinator and was very patient and understanding with us. She knew everything there was to know about the menu and wines, and made a beautiful display for our cake. The food was incredible, served promptly and catered to every dietary requirement we had. The staff are so friendly and approachable, and altogether lovely. I would recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to anyone getting married.
