This is the most amazing hotel. We got married here on Saturday, and oh my god, Debbie went above and beyond for us. I just don’t know how to recommend this hotel enough!! Our day was so magical and ran so smoothly, even with restrictions in place. With the staff at Clayton Hotel, you wouldn’t

We decided with to go with the Clayton Hotel for our wedding. We wanted everyone to have an extra special and memorable day, especially as family and friends hadn't properly spent time together since the start of the pandemic. We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Debbie & the Clayton

Hotel for a couples special day, because they were fantastic. We genuinely cannot find any fault with the service we received. The food was amazing and very well presented. All staff were extremely attentive from start to finish, we would like to give an extra special shout out to our wedding coordinator Debbie. Debbie listened to us from the very start, all our desires were taken on board and Debbie made sure that on the day all of our wishes were carried out to the highest standard. She was very professional with a friendly and warm approach. The day ran like a fine oiled machine, without a single glitch. Debbie made our day very easy and stress free. We feel that the attention to detail, to us as a couple and to our guests made our day extra enjoyable, not just for us but for all of our family and friends too. She really is an asset to the Clayton. We are still having amazing feedback from family and friends. We write this review almost 3 weeks after our wedding, and we can honestly say it is still a major point of conversation with family and friends. We would like to warmly thank Debbie and all the staff for making our day perfect.

We decided on the Clayton Galway as our venue in 2019 after meeting with Karina. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and down to earth. We got married in August 2020 after having cancelled our original date in March 2020. Given the situation, we had to cancel our March date with only a week’s

notice due to Covid-19 and had to reduce our numbers for our August date. Karina and The Clayton were extremely understanding and accommodating. They made an already stressful time so much easier. Anything they could do to help, they did. Karina was in constant contact and put us at ease. We rescheduled for August, and thankfully it was able to go ahead with 50 guests. We’re delighted we went ahead with it. Our wedding was but this meant we got to speak to all the guests and spend time with them.

Karina had many ideas and suggestions. She was a great sounding board to test our own ideas for the day. We were apprehensive about how the celebrations would go given the restrictions, but looking back now, we honestly feel that it had little or no impact. All the guests felt safe and reassured, which allowed everyone to enjoy themselves fully. Everything went even better than planned. It was an amazing day and more than we could have ever hoped for. The guests had a brilliant time and are still full of praise for the hotel and how the celebrations went. It was the first wedding in the hotel after reopening, and they were incredible. They were determined to make it a memorable day for us, and they certainly did that. It was a big success. The ballroom was beautifully decorated, careful attention paid to lighting, chair coverings and minute details I’d never even think of. In terms of accommodation, the rooms are modern and spacious, and the Presidential suite had to be seen to be believed.

The food was exceptional and plentiful. It really was fine dining. We had several guests with specific dietary requirements (allergies, vegetarian, vegan), all of which were catered for without issue. Guests still comment to us about the lovely food, and a number of them have already been back for an overnight stay and meal in The Clayton. The service was fantastic, all of the staff were friendly and efficient. Special mention to Carmel, she was so kind and helpful, always available for any queries and overseeing the service to ensure everything was running smoothly. There was nothing we could fault or would wish to change about the day. The staff at the Clayton made it. They’re incredible. Everyone we met was friendly, polite and professional. Karina is a credit to the hotel, she went above and beyond, and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with her. Karina always made us calm and relaxed no matter how manic or hectic things were, and nothing was too much trouble. We couldn’t compliment or thank her enough for making it the most special day for us. It was far beyond any of our expectations. We’re very grateful.

Thank you to Karina, Carmel and all the staff at The Clayton Hotel Galway for making it the perfect celebration of our wedding day. We’d give Clayton and the team the highest recommendation possible and would encourage any couple looking for a venue to visit and chat with them – you’ll be delighted you did! Thanks again.

We're approaching our 1st anniversary, and we look back so fondly on our wedding day in Clayton. We got married on 28th August 2020 with 50 guests in the middle of the Covid pandemic. We met Karina in late 2019, and although we had never been to the Clayton before, we knew it was the hotel we wanted

to get married in. From the minute we met her, Karina put us at ease with her professionalism and reassurance. Our original wedding date was set for March 2020. However, Covid had other plans, and we had to postpone at very short notice when restrictions took effect. This was very new for us, Karina and the staff at the Clayton, but they couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating.

When our special day eventually came around, everything went exactly as we would have hoped. I couldn't have imagined our day any other way, even if there was no pandemic. Karina and Clayton pulled out all the stops to ensure our day was as happy and memorable as possible. They went above and beyond on all aspects, and nothing was too much trouble. Looking back now, I wouldn't change a thing. Even our guests still comment on how great a day it was.

The ballroom was beautifully decorated. The personalised menus were a popular talking point for guests, and the food got 5-star reviews all around. The staff were incredible, and the service was friendly and attentive - There was never an empty glass!

I would highly recommend the Clayton to any couple, so much, so a friend has recently booked their big day in the Clayton in 2022! A massive thank you again to the hotel, the staff and Karina for making our day so memorable!

We had our wedding on 10th of April 2021. From the moment we met Karina back in 2019 we knew we were in good hands. Although due to the pandemic our numbers were cut significantly Karina reassured us that our day would still be perfect, and she was right. From beginning to end our wedding day was

like a fairytale. Karina and all the staff at the Clayton looked after us and our family so well. The food was absolutely fabulous and our glasses were never empty. We cannot thank you enough Karina and team and can’t wait to catch up with you when we can. For any couples who are in two minds about whether to go ahead or not, just do it! The memories you will make with your immediate family will last a lifetime.
