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

5 stars, I would gladly say 10 stars if that was an option. The Clanard is exceptional in everyway.

The staff treated myself and my wedding guests like family, calling all of us by first name within the first few minutes.

We were made feel so comfortable and welcome in the surrounds of a plush

and luxurious hotel where every last detail has been considered and every whim was catered to with a smile.

The hotel is fresh and newly revamped throughout.

The staff are friendly, polite, Courteous, professional and simply will not be exceeded in any hotel in Ireland.

The Clanard is a hidden gem and deserves more recognition.

Rooms were fantastic and the food was amazing, nothing was spared.

Special thanks to Claire and Emma from the wedding planning team who managed to guide me with ease through wedding planning in the midst of a pandemic.

As a family we look forward to returning to the Clanard for all our family functions in the coming years.

Well done on all your hard work and thank you to all the staff involved in making our day so special
