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 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

on hand during the weeks leading up to our wedding and for the entire day, always checking in with us in case we needed anything. 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.

When we had to cancel our wedding in June, we rescheduled to 5th December 2020, I was a bit wary of a Christmas wedding. It wasn't a wedding I had imagined but Alan McCaul reassured me all along and said "don't be worried, it will be perfect" and boy was he right!!! The Shamrock Lodge was amazing.

Not only was our weather fabulous but our venue was amazing! Everything was top class, the food, the décor, everything was amazing. If you have any doubts about a small wedding, put your trust in Alan McCaul and it will be perfect.

We had our wedding in the shamrock lodge Hotel on the 10th December 2020.
We first met with Alan just weeks before our wedding. Unfortunately, due to covid we needed to change our wedding venue last minute, merely weeks before our date. We did not want to change our date as we had been waiting over

2 years to get married. Alan was absolutely brilliant, an amazing person to deal with-it felt as if we had been planning our wedding for the last 2 years with him. There was nothing Alan couldn't do for us, he went above and beyond. The hotel adhered to all covid regulations on the day-Alan and team made us feel so special on our day, even with covid we enjoyed every single minute. The staff at the shamrock are fantastic! Everyone was so helpful, couldn't do enough for all of us. Again nothing was a problem for the staff-they were just brilliant. The food was divine! Everyone was delighted with the food- the portions were so generous! The rooms were super clean; The smell in the rooms is beautiful. We really felt so special on our wedding day, but we also felt special when we just went for dinner there. I CANNOT WAIT FOR RESTAURANTS AND HOTELS TO BE OPENED AGAIN TO EAT HERE. This is a hotel that everyone should go to eat and stay as the staff go above and beyond.
One thing that will always stick in my mind is the lovely lady Mary who sewed a piece of my sisters dress that ripped! that is an example of above and beyond!

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 with 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 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 something you didn't see on menu, Paddy would happily see if he could get it for you. The grounds outside for photos are just perfect the gardens are kept immaculate we didn't need to go anywhere else for our wedding photos. The bridal suite which was newly renovated was perfect and a 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.
