Our Wedding day at the Clanard Court Hotel was unforgettable. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, the staff did absolutely everything to ensure that the bride, the groom and both families were well looked after. From the cocktails and afternoon tea on arrival to the meal we had later that evening,

the selection of food and drink that they offered us was out of this world (our family are still talking about it) .

The function room was beautifully decorated and suited our intimate wedding. The rooms that our family had were amazing and our suite was simply a dream to stay in.

Getting married during a pandemic can be difficult but Emma was super to work with and so very helpful. She made planning our wedding completely stress free. The hotel was spotless and made us all feel very safe to stay there.

The gardens were beautiful and our photographer was spoilt for choices on where to take our wedding photos (the alpacas add an extra element of fun to the day).

We would highly recommend the Clanard Court to anyone who is getting married. We will 100% be celebrating other family functions there in the future.

We wish to thank Emma and all the staff at the Clanard Court for giving us the wedding of our dreams.

From the minute we entered the Clanard Court to make an enquiry to when we left a married couple, every single staff member we dealt with was amazing.

Emma, Clare and Daniel were fantastic. We had to reschedule our wedding due to covid and they were so supportive throughout the whole process.

Really patient and understanding. They didn't put any pressure on us to make decisions and made sure someone contacted us asap whenever we had a query.

When our wedding day finally came around we could not have been made feel more special. Everyone that worked with us throughout the day added something to it. Nothing was too much of an ask and we genuinely felt like the staff were happy to have us there. They were all great craic! The food was amazing, as was the service and facilities.

We got fab pictures in the gardens and on the hotel grounds. We stayed in the new suites and they are pure luxury.

We absolutely feel that we got value for money here. We had the best day. We can't wait to go back to visit when we can.

Thanks to everyone in the Clanard Court for making our wedding such a special, memorable day for us!

We got married in the Clanard the 8th of February 2020 and all I can say is wow!! From the first day we booked until we walked out as husband and wife they couldn’t have done enough for us and everyone who came to celebrate our day.

A special mention to Emma, she was so so lovely to deal with

and was so helpful. We did the all-inclusive winter package and it was excellent, such good value for money. The food was amazing, everyone loved it!

It really was the best day of our lives and they contributed to that massively. I would just like to say from my husband and myself we couldn’t be more grateful for everything the Clanard did for us. Thank you x
