wedding on Sat, 18th of February, 2023
We got married in The Clayton Hotel Galway just over a month ago. We had originally planned our wedding on two previous occasions and when it came to changing the dates due to covid, the transition was seamless. Debbie and the staff at Clayton were extremely professional and answered any questions

we had immediately and helped with every little detail needed. I cannot speak highly enough of Debbie she left no stone unturned for us making the day run seamlessly from start to finish. The day ran amazingly smooth and EVERYONE commended the venue as the food and service was 5 stars..(if I could give it 6 stars I would). Thank you so much to you and all the staff for making our day so fantastic. I would highly recommend anyone seeking wedding venues in Galway to visit the Clayton Hotel and speak to Debbie if you want a wedding to be remembered by all.
Thanks again for everything.

The Clayton Hotel Galway is the perfect venue for a wedding. We dealt with Karina and Debbie, they were really easy to work with it. Any questions were answered and no requests was a big deal either. The food was great from tasting to our big day (pity I couldn’t eat as much). The staff couldn’t

I just want to say a huge thank you to Debbie Foott and all the team in the Clayton Hotel Galway. We got married on the 29-10-22 and to say Debbie went above and beyond is an understatement. For a full year leading up to our wedding day, Debbie made herself available to us every time we wanted to

call in and ask questions. I had a vision of what I wanted for the theme of the wedding and Debbie took it on herself to set it all up for me, right down to assembling our wedding cake. The only answer to every question we had was yes that's no problem we will do that for you. No stress no worry Debbie just got the job done. Every detail for our day was just perfect. We were taken care of so so well. All of our guests said the meal was amazing. The bar staff and waiting staff were on the ball, running everything like clock work. It is safe to say we made the best decision in choosing the Clayton Hotel as our wedding venue, and a total blessing we had Debbie as our wedding coordinator. My maid of honour even saved Debbie's mobile number as THE AMAZING DEBBIE. Thank you so much to all the team. We had the best weekend.

From beginning to end Debbie and her team at the Clayton Hotel went above and beyond for us in every aspect of planning our wedding right up to the day of our wedding. Debbie was great for helping us think of all the little details we might have otherwise missed. The food was absolutely exquisite

and even two weeks later we are still getting compliments from our guests about the food. They were so accommodating allowing us to mix and match with different items on the menu and even made a wonderful main course dish at our request that wasn't on their menu choice. They really couldn't do enough for us. On arrival to the venue, we were blown away by how amazing the place looked. Everything was just as we had imagined and better. Every member of staff working at our wedding was so professional and accommodating. Each time there was a new shift manager, they went out of their way to find us and introduce themselves to us and let us know that if we needed anything at all we could come directly to them which we thought was just an amazing personal touch. We had the most fantastic day and night and were once again so happy with our day 2 celebrations in the Clayton. The BBQ food was delicious and there was plenty to go around for everyone. We cannot recommend Debbie and all the wedding team in Clayton enough. They made our whole day magical and we will forever be grateful to them for that.
