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.

I would highly recommend the Shamrock Lodge Hotel to any couple looking for the perfect wedding venue. They couldn't have done enough for us on our special day and ensured everything went smoothly and perfectly. From start to finish, everyone we dealt with throughout the whole process was an

absolute pleasure to deal with including Alan, Rebecca, Raj, and the rest of the Shamrock Lodge team.

We were able to have our day the way we wanted and nothing was too much trouble for them. I feel the level of service from all the staff, the high standard of the hotel, and the quality of the food are unbeatable. Our guests are still telling us how amazing the hotel, the feed, and the craic were.

Thanks again to the Shamrock Lodge Hotel team for making our special day better than we could have imagined! Sinéad & Ian Lynch

From the very start, the shamrock lodge was a fantastic experience. They were brilliant in helping us with every little detail of our day.

Our wedding coordinator was fabulous. We had a combined wedding Irish Italian and they were so happy to accommodate everything we requested. The wedding

room was very elegant. Down to the little details everything was perfect. The hall where we had our meal was decorated exactly how we wanted and was all we could have wished for.

The food was amazing as always and service was 100 percent. We partied the night away!

We cannot thank The Shamrock Lodge enough for all their efforts on the day of our wedding and in the lead up to it, also. We had the most amazing day and couldn’t be happier we decided to have our reception here.

From the moment we met with Warren, we knew we were in good hands.

The food,

the staff, the service and the venue were beyond exceptional. Everybody at our wedding was incredibly well looked after and made to feel so welcome. We couldn’t have asked for more. The day exceeded all our expectations and we are so grateful for such wonderful memories.

Paddy, Alan, Warren, Mary and Raj you were all a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble. Of all the things to worry about on the lead up to the wedding and the day of, you all made sure the venue wasn’t one of them. We cannot recommend you enough!

Myself and my husband got married in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel on 30-12-2023.
There aren’t enough words to describe just how amazing our day was, and that’s all down to the staff in this fabulous hotel. We planned our wedding from overseas which made things a lot trickier for us, but Mary and

Rebecca (the wedding coordinators) were so accommodating and organised a Zoom call with us when we were trying to decide on a hotel. As soon as we had the call, we knew this would be the hotel we would be booking. Being a family-run business, it really stood out from the rest and we had no doubt in our minds that we were in great hands.
In the lead-up to the wedding, everyone was just so helpful towards us. We met with Alan the GM and he was just incredible. He had the warmest welcome to us, listened to exactly what we wanted but also offered us his professional advice on things we weren’t sure about. We left that day knowing our wedding day was going to be perfect.
On the day itself, we were absolutely blown away by the hospitality and attention to detail. Paddy, Alan, Raj and Warren could not do enough for us. Not only us but also our wedding guests, getting to know most of our immediate and extended family by name and making sure everyone was okay constantly throughout the day. We had so many people comment on this as things like this don’t go unnoticed. They really made everyone feel so welcome and comfortable.
Onto the main event - the meal. The food was just amazing!! When we did the menu tasting before the wedding, we knew that everybody on the day would love it. We had so many compliments about the meal. The service was so quick, there were no delays and the staff even went around with a second round of mains to all the tables.
We feel so incredibly lucky and grateful that we were able to have our wedding at the Shamrock Lodge Hotel. We will never forget how special all the staff made us feel.
So thank you so much to all the management and staff!
Oonagh and Matt

Where do I begin....the most amazing wedding venue. Family-run hotel and they 100% look after everyone. We had the best day and everything about the lodge was perfect.
