Pauline!!! Is amazing, if I could write a song about you I would. Your attention to detail and your amazing staff made our day amazing.

I love how relaxed you and your team made us and our guest feel. You all took on any challenges and there was nothing to it and where so professional

food is just amazing, we have a large number of coeliac so the kitchen team made everything gluten free and it still tasted better than non gulten free options. "We are all coeliacs" Pauline used to tell us.

Even the few tough Cork City North Siders, "everything is better in Cork..." family members admitted the food, the location and of course staff... are better than Cork. WELL DONE TEAM! No easy feat there.

The Inn is an amazing place to get married, it has beautiful surroundings for all the photos, Castle... looks more like a Palace in the back ground, golf course, huge kids play ground, Mini Glof, walks... everything you need under one roof.

The Inn's Drinks Reception and Sun Room are amazing any time of the year. The room is bright with full hight window showing the beautiful Clare Countyside . The same is true for the main reception, full high windows letting in all that light and views. Even on the dulls of dull wet Irish days, these rooms will brighten your day.

The wedding day... let Pauline and her team take care of you both, they will control everything and ensure everything runs smoothly. You both just try to relax, and enjoy the dew mins quiet time Pauline will setup for you both before dinner. I really enjoyed that few mins of peace she set up for us.

Finally I assure you, you cannot go wrong in choosing the Inn for your wedding, you have my word on that.

Kind regards

John and Michelle

We got married on the 16th of October, 2021, at The Inn at Dromoland. To say we had the best day of our lives would be an understatement!! The food was out of this world, and the staff were just superb. Pauline, the wedding coordinator, has the patience of a saint! No question ever went unanswered,

and she was great with advice and support. The grounds are stunning for photos, and the rooms and bridal suite are 5 stars. We felt like royalty the whole time we were there. They also have a new room especially for hair and makeup. It's lovely, comfy and has loads of chairs and mirrors for the hair and makeup ladies. The entire wedding got silver service which was a big surprise to me on the day. Such a lovely touch. I cannot recommend The Inn at Dromoland enough. The prices are so reasonable, and you get the best food and drinks included. I can't wait to go back.

We had our ceremony and reception at The Inn at Dromoland, Co. Clare. They were so incredibly helpful to us from start to finish, and I couldn’t recommend them enough.

From our first meeting with the wedding coordinator Claire, we found her very lovely and so accommodating. Even during a

changeover in wedding coordinators, the whole journey was seamless. Pauline looked after us for the latter half of our planning on the run-up to the big day, and she was extremely helpful also. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The waiting bar and reception staff would always greet us with a big smile.

We had our ceremony in the Ballyhannon Suite (Ballroom) of the hotel. The set-up was amazing. It looked out onto the garden, which made a beautiful backdrop. We then had our arrivals reception in the Sun Lounge and lobby, which have the most beautiful decor, while the hotel rearranged the ballroom for the evening reception. It was brilliant to make use of the different spaces in the hotel and wonderful surroundings.

Our package included some decor. Through contact with Riona, who decorated both our ceremony space and reception, we were able to add some personalised touches to show our personalities. She was very accommodating and loved the ideas we had. She had a wide array of stock that we could choose from to get the look we wanted. Overall, the place looked amazing.

The meal itself was gorgeous, and all our guests enjoyed the food. I particularly enjoyed the silver service "reveal" of the main course. We all felt so important!

As I said at the beginning, I have nothing but good things to say about our experience at our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland. We would highly recommend them to any couples planning their big day.

Our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland really was the best day ever, thanks to Pauline and all the staff. From our original meeting with Claire, and having to move our date due to covid, Pauline and all the staff could not do enough to make sure everything went perfectly. They made everything so easy.

Everything was perfect! The reception room was stunning and the food was amazing. Everyone was complimenting it, as well as all the staff working. Most of our guests stayed in the hotel for three days and they (as well as ourselves) couldn't compliment every member of staff enough. The service, the food, everything was absolutely fantastic.
We would absolutely recommend The Inn at Dromoland to any couple looking for the perfect wedding venue. Thanks again to Pauline and all the staff for the best day and weekend!
