What our Guests Say:

Olive McGrane and Cillian O'Shea, 1st Sept 2018
We had a fantastic wedding day thanks to The Shamrock Lodge Hotel. We were treated so well from start to finish by Alan, Mary, Nicola and all the staff. Nothing was too much to ask and they handled everything beautifully. Our guests are still commenting on how great the food was and how friendly and welcoming all the staff were. We truly had a magnificent day and were treated like family.
Thank you so much, Olive and Cillian :)

Amanda Glennon and Niall Cunniffe, 14th July 2018
Having been at a few weddings in the Shamrock Lodge in recent years, we know that it was the only place for us when we finally set the date for our big day. From the very first day we called in to enquire about availability in Summer 2018 to the big day itself, Alan and his team couldn't have been more helpful and obliging. On the day, we had no shows, additional children and special dietary requirements, but nothing phased the team in the Shamrock Lodge. We had our entire wedding there - ceremony and reception, and the one thing we keep hearing back from guests is that it was a brilliant day and one of the best weddings they have ever been at. The food was fabulous, the decor was gorgeous and the service was outstanding. On your wedding day, you want to be able to relax and enjoy yourself, and thanks to the care and attention to detail from the team at the Shamrock Lodge, that is exactly what we did.

Where there is tea, there is love. This bride and groom’s wedding cake was mad as a hatter! A wonderful delight to the eyes, with an insane level of creativity.

We had been to previous weddings at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and another hotel was never an option. From the moment we sat down with Alan to the day after our wedding, Warren, Alan, Paddy and all the staff were with us all the way. No request was to big or small. The decor, the food, the staff -

everything was amazing. We and all our guests were looked after so well. If you are thinking of booking this hotel for your big day you will not have any regrets. They can't do enough for you and I will always recommend this hotel for any event, not just weddings.

We had our wedding planned for April 2020 but with everything going on with COVID it was postponed.

Paddy, Alan and Warren did everything to help us change the date and couldn't have been more generous with their time and help. Nothing was too much trouble and all questions were answered. It

was very stressful worrying about it, but they were so reassuring.

We went from 100-ish guests to 22 guests and we were given 5 star treatment from start to finish. All our guests needs were met with a smile.

The room where we had the ceremony and meal was just so beautifully decorated. It was light and airy and so elegant. With all the restrictions we didn't have music after the meal and we were finished at 11.30. But, wow, it was just the most perfect day from start to finish. Everyone of my guests have complimented me and the Shamrock Lodge for a wonderful day... and it was. I couldn't have asked for a better day. It was everything I had hoped for and more.

And as for the staff they were brilliant. Great team. Looked after us so well.
So, Paddy, Alan, Warren, Mary, Elaine and all the wonderful staff, thank you for making our wedding day the most perfect wonderful magical day ever.

Myself and Eddie would like to thank The Shamrock Lodge again for all of your help. From the day we enquired about booking our wedding, until the moment it was time for bed on our day, nothing was ever too much for ask for, and questions were always answered.

Shamrock Lodge in September 2020, and everyone had the most amazing time! It's an intimate space which definitely becomes home for the time that you are there

Alan & all the staff were brilliant, so lovely to work with, really accommodating and helpful. At the time restrictions were rift throughout Ireland and Alan was a calming influence in a chaotic time. We were in touch with Alan throughout our planning process and he was amazing - so down to earth and approachable, made things easy through his knowledge, experience and fantastic personality. He kept us from losing the plot, at the same time giving us great options and ideas

The venue itself was set beautifully and everything we had asked for was catered to, we even had a Piper playing us down the aisle. The grounds of the venue are scenic and perfect for your photos.

The food - oh, the food! The food was five stars, it was tasty, hot and plentiful, all our guests raved about it afterwards. The service was prompt and attentive & friendly

All the staff – from reception, wait, housekeeping and bar staff were amazing and genuine in making this a day to remember even in midst of a pandemic! Without the wonderful staff our day wouldn’t be possible – So thank you!

We couldn’t have asked for a better day, or a better venue.

Having had such a fantastic wedding day in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel we thought it would be a nice idea to share our experience for other couples to read. It also gives us another chance to thank everyone at this hotel for making ours such a great day.

having attended a few weddings here as guests and thoroughly enjoying every one of them. Planning a wedding can be a daunting prospect but we have to say our whole experience in dealing with the management and staff was a pleasure. Nothing was a problem for them to organize. Their help and assistance in ensuring all of our requirements were met were second to none. Also their attention to detail was fantastic.

The whole process from the start - an evening chat with Paddy, to the meetings we had with Mary, who was exceptional in her assistance with the whole planning process, to Alan and the team who looked after us and our guests on the big day - to the finish was flawless. The management and staff could not have done any more to make our wedding day such a memorable and enjoyable experience.

The incredible work that the staff had done in each of the rooms we used during our day was a credit to their dedication on making sure that our day was very special not only for us but also for them. From the room in which our marriage ceremony took place, to the reception room and on to the dining room, we appreciated how much they cared as the decor in each room was done beautifully. It is quite simply a fantastic venue and our day could not have gone any better.

We would like to thank you all once again and wish you all well during these difficult times of COVID.
We hope that you can soon return to what you do best, creating magical enjoyable wedding experiences for many more couples.

We cannot recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel enough. Both Paddy and Alan went over and beyond for us. Their attentiveness and service is second to none.

We were one of those couples who had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID-19 and we thought in the week leading up to the 9th of October we

were going to have to go through it all again but thankfully this wasn’t the case. We got our special day and it was perfect and all thanks to Paddy, Alan and all the staff in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel.

The staff are amazing and go above and beyond to make everything perfect - from our arrival reception of bagpipes to walking inside to a beautifully decorated lobby with lovely snacks, champagne, beer and friendly welcoming staff.

The meal was delicious there was no skimping on portions, with staff coming around with seconds - all our guests are still talking about how fabulous the food was and how great the whole day was. There was a great menu selection and also if you didn't see something on the menu, Paddy would happily see if he could get it for you.

The grounds outside for photos are just perfect. The gardens are kept immaculately and we didn't need to go anywhere else for our wedding photos. The bridal suite, which was newly renovated, was perfect and the little added touch of champagne went down a treat. Overall, myself and James are so happy we had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel - we couldn't imagine having it anywhere else.

I would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel to any couple looking for their dream wedding. We had nothing to worry about, only turn up on the day. Thanks for making our day so perfect and so special.
Tracy & James
