What our Guests Say:

Maura Tiernan & Eddie Gavin, 5th Sept 2020
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.

We held our civil wedding at the
 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.

We had our wedding in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on the 31st of July, 2021. To say we had the best day ever is the understatement of the year. It was more than either of us could have ever dreamed of. The hotel and wedding coordinating team were so accommodating and made sure that we were always happy

with everything leading up to the wedding. From the moment we met with the coordinator when we were viewing the hotel, we knew that we had found the perfect place. The welcoming atmosphere and the bubbly personalities that we met walking through the door just captured our attention and instantly put smiles on our faces. You can really tell that it is a family run hotel, as all the staff really come together and present as a strong, caring family unit.

Warren and Mary worked tremendously hard behind the scenes and on the weekend of our wedding. There was no question too big or too small. There is usually a lot of stress around wedding planning, but Mary took all that stress away and replaced it with fun and laughter. You feel very much at ease planning your wedding with the coordinators. There was fantastic attention to detail from service, to food, to décor and function room layout. The hotel team was always so attentive and ‘on the ball’. The food was exquisite and is something so many of our guests raved about after the wedding. The private garden beside the function room is the perfect backdrop for wedding photos. There was a lovely flow to the day from drinks, to the reception, to photos and meal, to first dance. Everything ran perfectly smoothly and that is due to the exceptional organization and work carried out by the Shamrock Lodge team.

The team at Shamrock Lodge couldn't possibly do any more for us. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was the most magical day for us. They welcomed any ideas that we had in mind and were incredibly accommodating. If we were to do it all again, we definitely would pick the Shamrock Lodge Hotel.

Thanks so much for everything!!

We celebrated our wedding reception in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on July 24th 2021. From our, first meeting with Alan, he was so kind and helpful as he listened to all of our suggestions and requirements. We felt assured that with his experience and attention to detail we would have a wonderful day.

Everyone in the hotel from Nicola on reception to Warren and Paddy, all worked quietly in the background to ensure we had a perfect day. We were planning our wedding while restrictions were gradually being eased, so this resulted in some uncertainty and challenges with our planning. However this never caused us concern because Alan constantly worked with us, to ensure we had the wedding day we always wanted. Alan also made some very helpful suggestions, regarding slight amendments we could make, in order to ensure we got the most out of our day. We are so glad we listened to his advice as those small changes really enhanced our day.

From speaking with our guests, they all mentioned how great the food was. All our tables were served quickly and well timed together. The food was beautifully cooked and it was noted by several of our guests that it was hot and fresh when it arrived to the table.

We had very high expectations on what we wanted from our wedding reception and we can honestly say that the Shamrock Lodge hotel surpassed them. We also liked the fact that they really valued our business, we understand they have several weddings every month, but they truly made us feel as if our wedding was their priority. They are experts in the area of wedding receptions and they have not become complacent despite all the success they have in this area.

Finally when our wedding was over and we returned to the hotel a few weeks later to dine in their restaurant, Nicola, Alan, Paddy and Warren all took the time to stop and speak with us and gave us a lovely welcome and high level of service. This is a testament to the fact they truly value their customers. Miriam & Sean

We couldn’t recommend these guys enough. We have celebrated so many occasions in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel and have never been disappointed. After a number of times rescheduling, we finally had our wedding and everyone was so helpful. They went above and beyond for us. Paddy, Alan, and Warren were

The rooms were decorated so beautifully and they even went out of their way to source specific décor for the ceremony room that we had liked. The food and service was amazing, as always. They made such as massive effort to make sure we had the best day... and we did! Thank you so much!

When we set out on our journey of planning our wedding at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, we never dreamt that a pandemic would hit and have us rearranging everything. Our wedding was held on 20th November 2020 where only 25 guests could attend.
During the planning everyone at the Shamrock Lodge went

above and beyond to help us with any queries or questions we had.
The support we received throughout the whole year was exceptional. From changing our original wedding date, to reducing our guest numbers to safety measures, the list was endless. Nothing was too big or too small of an ask.

When we arrived for our big day, everything was beyond perfect. Alan and the team are outstanding at what they do. The drinks reception, the food and the room layout and decoration was beyond what we could have imagined under covid restrictions.
We were so happy we went ahead with our wedding and could not recommend the Shamrock Lodge enough.

From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank Alan and his team for making our wedding perfect.

Thank you to you and your staff for making us and our guests feel welcome, safe and of course having a bit of normality for a day.
