What can we both say, from the moment we both viewed the hotel we fell in love.
The ballroom blew us away and the staff couldn't of been any more helpful.
We had the most special day and could not fault one thing.
Big thanks to Emma and John who were so helpful from the start.

We honestly cannot recommend the Clanard Court as a wedding venue enough. We had the most amazing wedding day and that’s all thanks to the amazing staff that made it possible. From planning to the actual day everyone was so helpful and nothing was too much. The food was amazing as always.

upgraded to the retreat suite for the night and it was amazing, views across the fields. We got our photos done in this room also as it was too windy to go anywhere and they turned out amazing. We wouldn’t change a thing.

David and I would like to thank all the staff of Clanard Court Hotel especially Emma and John for making our day so special and run seamlessly. Emma was a pleasure to work with from start to finish and made the whole wedding organising process so easy. Nothing was too much to ask for.

itself is just gorgeous, we loved the wedding room with the fabulous blossom trees, such a romantic setting. The food is 10/10 and all of our guests agreed. Our guests mentioned on several occasions how nice, welcoming, and helpful the staff at the Clanard Court were throughout the day which I am so impressed by. I will be forever happy I chose the Clanard Court Hotel as our wedding venue for our special day.
I would highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel for anyone looking to book their wedding venue. You won't regret it !

hotel was and the rooms were spacious and bright.
The food on the day and second day was delicious and the staff were amazing. There was no waiting around at the bar for drinks by any of our guests.
I really could not find one fault on the day of our wedding.
If your looking for a wedding that ticks all the boxes as a venue then you have to look no further than the Clanard.
