Can we just compliment the wonderful experience you and your team provided us with for our wedding day on the 06.08.2021.

From the very first email I received from Arune regarding our reception enquiry, I just knew this was going to be the perfect venue for us. When I went to view the venue I

just fell in love with the semi-private area.
Upon arrival to the hotel on Friday afternoon the 6th August we were greeted by a lovely team of staff who waited ever so patiently while we had photos taken.
Soon after we were guided in by Dylan and Joseph and taken to our tables. We were absolutely blown away with how the room was decorated and laid out, totally beyond our wildest dreams. The setting, the decor, and the ambience was just breathtaking. The food was just amazing, every single morsel was melt in the mouth. And what a team of staff, Joesph, Dylan and Grainne.

Our amazing experience in the Clayton

From the moment we went in we were treated like royalty.
The room was out of this world, so lovely to have prosecco and strawberries awaiting us.

The meal was only gorgeous, we wish we could have all options.

gentleman, he was helpful and so friendly and made our menu tasting so relaxed and enjoyable.

The chef was amazing, he came out and spoke with us about the meal and such a friendly man.

Joseph was another great gentleman he made sure we were looked after and even brought breakfast to our room.

We had such a lovely time, was so nice to go to your hotel and relax and forget about covid for 1 night.

Thank you so much Arune for making our night so enjoyable.

You really made our day and it was not easy under the current circumstances, fair play to you all and we will always remember our little wedding reception in the Clayton with a big smile in our faces.
We will be looking forward to come back, maybe for our anniversary.

Me and my now wife spent a wonderful few days here for our wedding. During covid we faced massive uncertainties and frankly the Clayton came to our rescue having had our initial wedding cancelled. From the outset the Clayton were a pleasure to deal with and continually went above and beyond.

Friendly, hardworking and personable staff. Excellent food. Marvellous accommodation. It's a shame we couldn't make further use of their amenities due to Covid as I'm sure they too would have been outstanding. We left there feeling they had truly gone above and beyond in all aspects. I would recommend them as a hotel and business to anyone. I would also urge any couples facing wedding issues to also get in touch with them as they truly made our day special in the face of massive uncertainties. Thank you to all the staff.

We had our wedding here on the 18th of October 2019, and we cannot praise Sandra, Sarah and all the staff at the Clayton hotel Sligo enough. We had a wedding of 80 adults and a few children. From the very beginning Sandra was fantastic to deal with. There was never an issue too big or too small to

Read More

deal with. I have to commend all staff, be it reception staff, to bar staff or the waiting staff, any time that my now husband would be on the premises they all pretty much greeted us by name, asking all about the wedding etc. It gave such a family and homely atmosphere during the run up and on the day of the wedding.

We had our ceremony in the hotel too, so I had all my morning preparations in the hotel the morning of the wedding. The rooms are extraordinary!! So big bright airy spacious rooms. The ceremony room was decorated fantastically, it really didn't feel part of the hotel. Every little detail was taken care of. We had the drinks reception then the wedding reception. We had our wedding pictures taken on both the amazing grounds of the hotel and in Hazelwood nearby.

The food during the reception was fabulous, I'm salivating just thinking about it! We had a number of guests with difficult intolerances to cater for, and the food they had was as equally tasty as what everyone else had. I had never attended a wedding before where platters for seconds were brought around, this was to much delight of a number of guests! The beef went down a storm, and I personally will be back for the hake.

My partner and I were inundated with queries of how we came upon this hotel, and guests complimenting all staff, the location, the rooms, the facilities and the food etc. I genuinely could not fault the hotel or any of the staff.

All of this meant my partner and I just had the most relaxed easy day and allowed us to just enjoy our day.

We really want to extend our gratitude to Sandra and Sarah,who ensured our day went off without a hitch.

Thanks again,

New Mr and Mrs Taylor

The Perfect Wedding
We would like to thank all at The Clayton Hotel for giving us such a wonderful Wedding Day. We had 100 guests stay at the hotel for 3 nights, the wedding celebrations started from the moment they stepped off the coach from the airport, where they were greeted with champagne,

canapes and a smile. The service throughout the hotel was exemplary from staff in all areas, our guests were extremely well looked after all weekend.
Our Wedding Day was extra special, with our ceremony in the Chapel in the grounds of the hotel, followed by a drinks reception then the wedding reception in the ballroom. The meal in the evening was outstanding with plenty of it, followed by a lovely buffet, our guests were very well fed all day, and the ones that had the roast beef couldn't stop talking about how amazing it was. We can not thank Sandra O'Hara enough, the wedding manager, for giving us such a special day, her professionalism and efficiency made the whole day go so smoothly, which allowed us to enjoy our day as well, nothing was too much trouble.
We would highly recommend The Clayton Hotel, Sligo for a Wedding, with its idyllic grounds, superb staff, fantastic facilities, amazing food, and great accommodation, everything in one place this is the perfect location for a wedding.
All our guests have not stopped talking about what a wonderful wedding and weekend they had.
Thank you all so much

enjoy the full day festivities at the hotel and not have to worry about travelling between church/hotel venues etc.

From our initial booking right through until we checked out of the hotel, the support and help we received from the staff at the Clayton was exemplary.

Sandra, Voytek and the team at the Clayton were with us every step of the way, providing help as well as suggestions on vendor contacts, food tasting recommendations, right through to saying yes to any ask or changes we requested.

Our wedding day was seamless and thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests, the food in particular was raved about by all our guests (especially the beef).

I would highly recommend the Clayton Hotel as a potential wedding venue for any couple to consider, having the perfect combination of an intimate personal wedding ceremony situated in stunning hotel with a beautiful ballroom to entertain your guests afterwards.

5 Star Wedding Venue*****
We had our wedding in the Clayton Hotel Sligo this NYE. From start to finish the customer service was 5 star. Sandra O'Hara (Wedding Coordinator) attended to every detail, promptly replied to all emails and put this bride at ease throughout the planning. Sandra is a

natural wedding planner and is such a lovely, friendly and jovial person and an asset to the front of house for sure. Also, who can forget the lovely Voyteck, don't worry he'll ensure you don't...his humour and attention to detail especially on your wedding day, ensuring the smooth running of everything is fantastic. From Noel's excellent customer service and pleasantries, Norma and Sebastian's scrumptious and very memorable food, which guests continue to rave about (esp.) the slow cooked beef (A+) still remember the taste yum!!! When a guest who's a serious beef farmer compliments the beef to a high standard you know it's good. What initially won us over to choose the Clayton in Sligo over many wedding venues we visited in the west, was definitely the staff, not having to sit in the reception to discuss wedding plans as hotel guests walk through, instead directed to a beautifully decorated private wedding room, and every time you visited the hotel over the course of the year, the staff always greeted you by name, the personal touch beats any we've experienced in numerous wedding venues we visited and we visited a lot..... Thank you so much Sandra and all the staff at the Clayton, we'll look forward to many future stays at the Clayton and our return visit for our anniversary next year.xx

amazing venue and worked out really well for us. The food exceeded expectations, especially the beef which arrived to everyone as ordered. Sandra was great as our main coordinator. She talked us through all our options, took the time to meet us whenever we wanted, was able to draw on what the hotel had done for other weddings and made sure everything turned out the way we wanted. Any little extras we wanted were never a problem. On the day of the reception a special mention has to go to Wojciech and Natalia our co-ordinators on the day , they were there until after the meal on the day to make sure everything ran smoothly .( We cannot thank them enough ) They also managed to update the table plan when we had a guest cancel the morning of. They also helped us with the tidy up the next morning. We received so many compliments from our guests on venue choice, especially on how friendly the staff were and the food. We're so happy with our choice and would recommend it to anyone. We can't thank the staff of the Clayton Sligo enough."

Best day of our lives !!!

Our wedding at the Clayton was amazing and went without any hitch to the finest detail.

From the morning of our day getting ready we were looked after brilliantly.

Voytec was an excellent host and made us feel at ease knowing he was in control along with Lori who

Read More

was equally excellent.

From the drinks reception to the meal which was absolutely gorgeous, to the professionalism and organisation of our speeches, band and do. Everything was a breath of fresh air.
Our day lasted right into the wee small hours and honestly didn’t know where the time went we were all having so much fun.

The venue and grounds were breathtaking. The ballroom was perfect. It was great that our guest did not have to be moved for the band being set up, was so relaxed. The dance floor in middle was full all night.

Between Voytec and Lori there was always someone in charge overseeing everything. Great job by both.

It was a pleasure working with Sandra organising our day, she knows her stuff. Between Sandra’s great ideas and advise we were able to put our perfect day in place and we cannot thank you enough.
Coming from Belfast in the North, we had to organise a lot over email and phone calls which was hard, but Sandra has the patience of a saint and explained everything well.

If we could do it again we wouldn’t change a thing.

Thank you again to the Clayton and all the staff it was a pleasure.

WOW! From the moment we met with Sandra, we felt at ease. Billy and I knew what we wanted for our wedding (and what we didn't want).

We had a wonderful tasting menu and the one change we wanted was seamlessly incorporated.
As the day drew closer, any queries and issues we had were quickly and efficiently dealt with.
On the day Sandra, Natalia and Wojchic made everything run so smoothly. The church looked amazing, such a beautiful special space.
Our meal was delicious! The steak was so tender and succulent, the starters and desserts were amazing! It's now 6 weeks after the wedding, and people are still telling us how fantastic the dinner was!
All in all, everything was amazing, customer-led, nothing was any bother. We would recommend the Clayton to anyone for their wedding, it was just perfect. Again, WOW!

I could literally rave about this place all day. If your thinking about booking your wedding here stop thinking about it and do it! :)

love with beauty of the whole hotel and grounds. Went in with the hopes of getting a look at the church came out a bit later with a date for our wedding booked.The lead up to the wedding was made so pleasurable with the likes of their wedding coordinators Vilma and Sandra. Noeleen was great to deal with when helping to allocate your room. The eve of the wedding my husband and groomsmen stayed here and were well looked after by the staff and Wojtek was on hand to help take of the decorations for the next day and how and where we wanted them.As for the big day it was a truly amazing exceptional experience due to the team of staff. Wojtek is truly gifted at his job, he had it all running like a well oiled machine. The wedding dinner was out of this world delicious all guest truly full after. i would 100% recommend this hotel to all who wants to get married or just have a short break. The hotel is very child friendly and having staff like mention above plus Trevor and Noel should make your stay enjoyable and relaxed like all ours stays have been.A very big Thank you to all the staff in the Clayton Hotel Sligo .Hope to see you all soon.

We had our wedding in the Clayton Hotel. We initially made the booking with Vilma and then followed by Sandra who brought us through the planning process. This lady knew how to make us feel relaxed with any queries we had. If we were stuck for suppliers she had recommendations, any requests we

had, there was never an issue. Her communication with us in the lead up to the wedding was everything you would want. The Day of the wedding was the same.. made us feel so relaxed! Sandra made an appearance on the day and again helped us out with last minute changes, with Sandra and Wojciech on the day it added to the relaxed atmosphere, clayton are lucky with the team they have. Sandra, Wojciech, the restaurant manager to the head chef Edel even the servicing staff and front office reception were great in customer service cannot fault the clayton staff. we had specific rooms reservation - requests with early check in times and the Connor met our requests. There were numerous guests staying overnight and their reservations were arranged without a glitch.
Our civil ceremony was held in the canis major suite where we had hired a singer and keyboard piano player to sing specific songs. Wojciech was great at arranging our entrance I didn't see my bride till I walked up the aisle and it was exactly how I imagined it would be.
Every little detail just fell into place for us. The meal was fantastic and served really quick. There were no food complaints. I'll finish by saying the best thing about this hotel for us was we could have our civil ceremony in a beautiful setting. The drinks reception to the meal and entertainment went smoothly. Our wedding was exactly how we wanted and more. Thanks to Sandra, Wojciech and all the members of staff that played their part on the day.

When we went to the function room area, I was so delighted and surprised to see that Sandra had put our leftover flowers into vases to decorate the area, it looked beautiful, she really went above and beyond for us. The function room looked gorgeous and they had laid out our little bits and bobs perfectly, we were so happy with it all.

On to the food!! This was without doubt the highlight of the day for all of guests at the wedding! We had so many compliments about every single course of our meal, the Rump Steak in particular was a big hit, everyone commented about how it was just melt in the mouth, absolutely gorgeous! I had the hake myself, and can confirm that it was just as delicious!

Everything really just ran so smoothly all day, it was clear that the team in The Clayton are very experienced and work so hard to ensure that your wedding day is truly special and exactly as you want it to be. Every staff member was so helpful and seemed genuinely happy to have us there to celebrate our wedding. We had the most amazing time and we would like to thank Sandra for all of her help throughout the planning process and especially on the day. And a huge thank you to Wojtek and his team for making sure the day went perfectly. We couldn’t imagine having had our wedding anywhere else!

We held our wedding celebrations in the Clayton Hotel, Sligo on 7 October 2017. It was a wonderful day - and night!

We live in London, but the team at the Clayton made it really easy to organise our day despite being some distance away, including helping us to find a band. (We chose Keltic Kaos,

they were great and played a good mixture of floor fillers all night).

On the day, Sandra and Wojtek worked really hard and couldn’t do enough to make sure everything went like clockwork and dealt with last minute requests in a calm and efficient manner. Special thanks also to Jenny and her bar team for keeping the guests well watered into the wee hours!

We would have no hesitation recommending the Clayton for a wedding or any other celebration. Thank you for providing a perfect stage for so many wonderful memories – we just wish we could do it all again tomorrow!

We are based in the UK and chose the Clayton after seeing 4 or 5 other hotels in Sligo as we felt that venue was a stunning location and offered everything that we wanted , what we didn’t expect though was how excellent the staff of the hotel are .
Firstly your wedding co-ordinator Vilma Meenan

Read More

was a pleasure to deal with , she took real interest in our wedding and kept in regular contact (when she went off on maternity leave Sandra O’Hara did a great job of filling her shoes) , nothing was too much trouble and any questions were quickly answered which kept our minds at ease (you worry about the small things when you’re in a different country!).
We came to have a weeklong stay in January 2017 and were very well taken care of by everyone at the hotel , particularly TREVOR who was in the bar when we went down for dinner one evening . In passing conversation we mentioned we had booked our wedding and would be bringing about 30 guests from the UK over in September and he insisted upon buying us a drink !
When we returned in September he remembered us when we saw him the night before the wedding , he was not due to come in on Friday but did pop in to wish us both the best of luck which was above and beyond the call of duty and a really great thing for him to do .
All of our party from the UK loved the hotel . The rooms, food ,facilities are all second to none and we have had nothing but praise about our choice of venue .
Many of our party had never been to Ireland before and every one of our guests wants to return to see more of Co Sligo and all of them wish to return to “The Clayton” when they do .
Finally a great big thanks to Wojtek and his team that ran the day for us , from operating the music to arranging the tables/food/decorations/ they were superb , if anything was needed there were no questions it was taken care of quickly and without fuss .
At one point I asked for a drink that wasn’t available in the Canis Major and I was told they had it in the main hotel bar , I was about to go and get it when one of the girls on our bar stopped me and insisted they get it and that I shouldn’t miss a moment of our wedding and they would be back as quick as they could .. and so they were !
Absolutely faultless service .
We are delighted to have had our wedding at your hotel and look forward to coming back regularly to celebrate and just to relax in style when we return to Sligo .

We would highly recommend the Clayton Sligo as a wedding reception venue. The staff were fantastic and a pleasure to deal with, both in the lead up and on the day itself. Everyone commented on how great the food was. We are delighted we chose this hotel for our wedding.

We had our wedding at the Clayton Hotel, Sligo on 15th September 2017. The staff at all levels took great care of us and were very professional at all times. A special mention of managers Willie and Lucas, wedding organisers Vilma & Sandra, chef Edel, Siobhan, Pauric &

the very proficient Vojcek and his team, who calmly, warmly & expertly ensured that everything ran smoothly on the day. We were totally relaxed and felt everything was in very safe hands.
They certainly lived up to their promise of a 'be-spoke' wedding, we got to have everything as we wanted it to be. The setting was perfect with the delightful Canis Major church on the extensive & well-kept grounds. Just a short walk away, the main hotel a historical stone building, houses the beautiful, tastefully decorated function room.
It was our pleasure having them host our big day.

We would speak particularly highly of the bar and floor staff too, who were very personable and good fun over the course of the weekend which helped create a good atmosphere. The hotel porters too did a great job too and were patient and helpful at all times. The communication between staff members seems to be good without exception: this is something that can be hard to achieve and points to a well managed hotel. We felt we made an excellent choice in deciding on the Clayton and we were delighted with the weekend.

The food was excellent and our guests were delighted with the rump steak on the menu. It was overall very good value for money for a 5 course meal.

The Clayton hotel and all its staff were amazing. My husband to be at the time and I went to look around one afternoon and from that moment we both knew this was the hotel for us.

up to the wedding no matter how many questions we had or the type of questions nothing was to much bother. The staff were that helpful that on the day of the wedding 20 minutes before the service my hubby to be remembered he had forgot the buttonholes a 40 minute drive away. In a panic he went to reception and the staff jumped into action. We had buttonholes with minutes to spare. The whole day ran like clockwork. The food was amazing. Rooms fabulous. Great value for money. I can not say one bad thing about this hotel or it's staff. We both totally recommend having your wedding at the Clayton Hotel in Sligo. It is all our guests have talked about since. Would do it all again and wouldn't change a thing (other than taking the buttonholes myself)

Forever Grateful to the Clayton hotel and staff Mr & Mrs Frazer :)

We had our wedding here in July 2016; we were dealing with Cora; she made everything to do with the planning very easy; she gave us a list of questions the hotel needed to know and gave us plenty of time to come back with answers; we didn't have any unusual special requests but I got the impression

that it wouldn't have been a problem if we had. Everyone initially met in the chapel, which is just to the side of the main building as you come in; there was a champagne reception and some finger food; that was really nice as everyone there was with wedding and everyone was chatting when we arrived; it was a beautiful day so the grounds looked lovely and we got some really nice photos; Willy the manager introduced himself and couldn't have been nicer, he showed us into the reception room so we could have a quick look around; Willy was very attentive and made us feel really relaxed which was great because we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves then; the reception room was really nice; we had been given the option of how we wanted it laid out, they had different colour lighting to choose from and the temperature was just right; the food was lovely, there was plenty of staff and it came out at a good pace; Willy kept checking in with us from time to time to check everything was okay; the audio system was good, everyone could hear the speeches quite clearly; there was a video system as well for pre-recorded messages; the audio on this wasn't so good, that may have been because we didn't have the right connection, maybe check this a few days before; there's a stage for the band and a good size dance floor in the centre of the room, and a bar at one end; they cut and served the cake for us, some more food was brought out later in the night and the rooms were lovely and quite big.
We thoroughly enjoyed the day, in large part thanks to Cora and Willy and the rest of the staff, and being able to relax; I would have no problem recommending this hotel for a wedding reception.

bride and sent Cora a string of emails and requests and nothing was ever too much for her. She answered promptly and always with enthusiasm. The week running up to the wedding we had almost 100 guests travel from the UK and stay in the hotel and they were all looked after to the highest standard. They all commented on the size and cleanliness of their rooms and the excellent service they received in the hotel bar and restaurant and also at reception. The day of the wedding we had a humanist hand fasting ceremony in the chapel on the grounds. It was a very moving ceremony and the setting was perfect. it just looked like a dream with lanterns and cherry blossoms everywhere. The reception room was decorated so beautifully and the meal was superb. With over 200 guests and not one complaint on food you know you have a great venue. The bar was well staffed and nobody had to wait to be served too long. we partied late into the night and were looked after all the way. So if you are looking for a venue for your upcoming wedding you will not be disappointed especially if you are interested in having your ceremony and reception in the same venue. So thank you to Cora and all the staff in the hotel fro making our wedding day so memorable for all our family and friends and the greatest day of our lives. I'm only sad we can't relive the weekend all over again. Aideen and Paul Adcock xxx

had the best wedding planner at the hotel Cora who was always at hand if I had any questions or suggestions and everything was sorted there and then. We had over 60 guests who stayed the whole weekend for celebrations and cora made sure all rooms were booked and everyone was happy.
We had our wedding ceremony in the church on the grounds of the hotel and it was beautiful and the photos we got were just fab.
On the wedding day we also had Vojtek on hand who made sure everything ran smoothly and not once did we have to ask for anything as everything was at hand and ran to plan. During the meal we had 5 courses and the waiting staff were fantastic serving meals and clearing in great time and without any hassle. There was also a lot of children at our wedding and this wasn't a problem at all as the Clarion is a very family friendly hotel.. The food was top class and everyone commented on the quality and quantity of food. No one went hungry.
I would highly recommend the Clarion in Sligo to anyone no matter where you live. Sligo is a beautiful place and we are so glad to have found this hidden gem.
I would like to thank all the staff at the Clarion especially Cora and Vojtek for making our wedding day so special.

booked out over 35 rooms with friends and family joining us for the weekend. Everyone we spoke to commented how lovely and spacious all their rooms were. Clean the hotel was. Friendly people were. This was so nice to hear. The food went down a storm. Again people commenting on the wedding meal as fantastic. We chose the menu and added bits so we're so glad to hear such feedback. The hospitality from the staff. Even the grounds themselves were commented on on how nice it was. Again after all the planning my wife and I (ok my wife) put into it it was soo good to hear such great reviews. We are so very grateful to all who helped us before and during our wedding.
We had a small party the next night too in the clanis major for friends and family. Again, The hotel pulled out all the stops for us. Staff so helpful and caring. Food was gorgeous. So many people to thank but genuinely ALL the staff helped us make the day so special. It's not just a line. ALL the staff were amazing. It's true that it's not the location that makes it sometimes it's those behind the scenes working away. To them all k thank them very much for doing a truly fantastic job.
Now. To get back to work to pay for it!
Thank you Clarion hotel
