What can I say, the Clanard Court made our wedding day even more special. The staff were amazing, the venue decorations were perfect and the food was outstanding. To this day our guests still rave about our wedding and how nice the hotel was, also saying our food was the best they have ever had at a

wedding. The wedding team, especially Emma is amazing. She will answer any calls, texts, or emails within minutes and is always there to put your mind at ease. We were a covid wedding but yet it didn’t feel like there was any stress because Emma and the team looked after it all. I can’t recommended the Clanard Court any more highly, GET MARRIED HERE!!

who had dietary requirements. We first went to view the hotel in the height of covid and Emma and the team couldn't do enough or be more helpful. Our day was everything we could have hoped for and more. A day we will never ever forget. Would highly recommend the Clanard as a wedding venue. You won't be disappointed ❤️❤️. Thanks so much for making our day so very special.

Had our wedding on Friday the 24th of June 2022 in the Clanard Court. I presume it's stressful organising a wedding. But to tell you the truth, we wouldn't know. From the first time we went to view the venue we were met by Emma Ferris and some of her staff. We were really impressed by her

professional approach to our upcoming event..we visited another 7 venues in total. But we were much more impressed by the Clanard than anywhere else. So we proceeded to book our wedding and straight away we were getting great advice from the hotel. John Kelly the events manager then lent his services by providing us with suggested names of bands for the reception. Emma then laid us on a step by step journey for our big day .Just weeks before the wedding we were invited to a menu tasting meal. Treated like royalty without being fussed over too much. The menu was picked and any queries we had were answered for us on the night.. our wedding was a civil ceremony. So everything was in the Clanard Court. We had hoped for an outside ceremony in the beautiful gardens of the hotel. But irish weather intervened. Fair play to the staff, they quickly transformed the dining room into a fantastic setting for our ceremony. After the ceremony we proceeded into the reception area where there was a beautiful champagne reception laid out for us. When it came to the time to enter the ballroom for the main meal, we were sat down before hand and handed a drink of our choice just to calm us down a little you might say. During the dinner John Kelly played music of our choice while we enjoyed our meal. We must say as did many others at the wedding, that it was probably the most beautiful meal that we had ever eaten.. The staff were fantastic serving out the meals with great applaud. The evening was finished up with some fantastic food around midnight.. We must say it was great to hear so many people saying it was the best wedding they were ever at. Thank you once again Emma and John and the Clanard Court.
