I want to thank you for making our wedding day so so special. It wasnt just the day that was special, it was at every transaction with every staff member, every phone call and every email before and after that we had with your hotel. I can honestly say that your customer experience, personal touch,

genuine care for your customers and the love you all have for a family run hotel is what makes you stand out by a country mile! Even when I think of the Shamrock Lodge now I get a lovely warm feeling.

We absolutely loved everything about our time with you for our wedding day. Your dedication, passion and attention to detail eliminated all the stress of planning a wedding with 2 small children and this was a MASSIVE point for us.

We felt really at home with the care and hospitality you gave us, our families and guests. You took such good care of us.

The food was absolutely beautiful, and everyone commented on it. You really looked after our 2 very sensitive coeliacs, one of whom was my mother-in-law, so that was excellent!

In our thank-you speech on the day, we spoke of how coming to the Lodge was like coming home to family. The Shamrock Lodge Hotel and the staff, Mary, Alan, Doireann, Lorna, Raj, and everyone else made our day perfect.

The attention to detail, care, and consideration everyone gave was amazing.

They gave us the much-needed reassurance and calmness when we were most anxious about wedding preparations.

The day was flawless, perfect and memorable. The food was delicious, the staff friendly, and the management on the ball with every one of our wishes, big or small, catered for.

Thanks for the amazing day.

My wife and I got married in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel in February. Everyone couldn't do enough for us. The day went so smoothly; it genuinely was the best day of our lives.
Can't thank everyone enough.

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
