We had our wedding here on the 5th July 2019 and couldn't have asked for a better day or venue. From the moment we arrived the staff put us at ease and I had so much confidence in them that our day would run perfectly. But we could never have dreamed how amazing it would be. We wanted for nothing

and were left to enjoy our day. Our guests are still commenting on the beautiful garden where we held our ceremony and the friendly staff that on more than one occasion went above and beyond for our guests. The food on the day was out of this world also. I could go on and on. Highly recommend this amazing venue!

Words cannot describe the day we had it was absolutely fabulous. The venue could not have done anything more for us. From the beginning of the planning Claire & Emma were so professional and made us feel so at ease. Nothing was ever a problem. From the moment we arrived and our guests arrived you

were made to feel very special. With it been a family run hotel you felt you were joining your extended family as the staff are so professional and friendly and we commend Mary the owner who among others overseen every aspect from start to finish. Everyone of our guests was made feel special and as for us the happy couple - we were treated like royalty. As I have said it is very hard to put into words except - The venue = Perfect, Gardens = Perfect, Food = Perfect, Hospitality = Second to none. Since our wedding day all our guests have come back to us saying the day was perfect and the venue was brilliant. They could not do any more for us. All that's left to say a huge huge thank you to Mary, Emma and Claire and to all the staff for making our day truly truly extra special.

Love and thank you so much Des & Sinead. Mr & Mrs Mulhere

We couldn’t have picked a better venue for our wedding- everything was perfect. They were a pleasure to deal with from the start, especially Emma & Claire. Nothing was ever a problem. The grounds were a major reason we choose to get married here, the gardens are so beautiful & the function room

Loved everything about this venue it was the perfect place for our big day!

of staff were keeping a very close eye on the kids during meal helping them cut up their food, they took it upon themselves to do this which I was very grateful for, delighted we picked here for our big day.

The Clanard Court is by far Ireland's best wedding venue. From the first day we met Emma and Claire we were made feel so at ease and everything ran like clockwork from that day until the morning after the wedding - everything was amazing. Nothing was an issue, we didn't have to worry about a thing.

They made sure we were totally relaxed and that all we had to do was enjoy our day. A huge number of guests told us it was the best, most relaxing wedding venue they'd been to due the food and room, but most of all because of the hospitality. Emma, Claire, Gosia and all the staff looked after each of us so well; they are true professionals. All of the food from the canapes at the drinks reception right through to breakfast the following morning, was a huge hit with all of the guests, everything was absolutely delicious! A huge thank you to everyone in the Clanard Court for making it the best day we've ever had!
