What our Guests Say:

Aoife Dooley and Seamus Kiernan, 10th Sept 2021
We had our wedding day at Shamrock Lodge Hotel on 10.9 21.

It was the best day of our lives. Paddy, Alan, Warren and all the Shamrock staff went above and beyond for us and our guests. The service was second to none. Our guests still speak of how it good the food and service was. Anything we
 asked of Shamrock nothing was problem. I highly recommend this hotel and if I could give it ten stars I definitely would as they deserve it.

You will not be disappointed if you book your wedding here

It's a 5 stars from us.

A 5-star review for outstanding service. Hard to believe that it's 1 week ago since we celebrated our special day. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. We were always going to choose the Shamrock Lodge for our wedding venue as we had celebrated many special family occasions there in the past

and will continue to do so in the future. We were always well looked after by Paddy, Alan, Warren and all the staff.

Our day was brilliant from start to finish and many of our guests commented on the wonderful homely atmosphere, from the beautiful decor to the fabulous food we had. We would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel for any occasion. The staff were more than helpful and ourselves and our guests were so looked after. When they say "Let our family look after yours" they really do mean it. We couldn't find a single fault on them and we cannot thank them enough for such a memorable occasion.

wedding on Fri, 16th of July, 2021
After having viewed a few venues, Stephen and I choseShamrock Lodge Hotel as the place we wished to hold our wedding reception back in 2019. The world was then hit by a global pandemic, which added in no small way to the stress that already comes with planning a wedding.

staff at Shamrock Lodge Hotel were a huge help in this time. Their patience and understanding of the situation we were in as restrictions were imposed, and we were unsure if we would proceed with the wedding as planned, was of great reassurance to us. They never once put us under pressure and indeed our table plans were changing right up until the week of the wedding. Again this was no problem. As a couple, this was the most important factor for us in dealing with the hotel. There was no problem to big or too small and they accommodated us with every request.
On the day the service from the staff was top class, and the food was exceptional. The beautiful gardens are a perfect backdrop for photos of the day as well. The room was beautifully decorated for the day, and we were delighted with how the wedding went. All present had a great night and were highly complimentary of the hotel.

We would recommend Shamrock Lodge Hotel to any couple planning their big day.
