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.

most amazing and best days of our lives. In the week building up to the wedding Alan Warren and Paddy made everything so easy for us and as you can imagine our minds went blank with the situation that we had been faced with, but these guys ensured nothing was forgotten and they couldn't have offered to do more for us. our wedding consisted of over 300 guests but with the sercive, we received you would think there was no more than 20. The staff where excellent. The meal was fabulous and the room decor was simply amazing, it was as if the guys took the image of what I had always wanted my wedding day to be, and made it a reality for us. There slogan reads "let our family take care of yours" and they truly did. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Guys thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special and a day myself and our families will never forget. Jayne & Declan Fallon.X
