Can we both say it was perfect from start to finish. We wouldn't have changed anything, You and all of the hotel staff from porters to management were amazing and the service we received was beyond our expectations.

Many thanks to the Inn at Dromoland for making our wedding truly memorable

I could not recommend the Inn at Dromoland enough for your wedding. We had both the ceremony and the reception at the hotel, the rooms were laid out beautifully and the guests were able to move from ceremony to reception with ease which was so nice and easy for them. The staff couldn't do enough

for us, you can tell they are experienced in dealing with weddings with every little detail thought of. They are all so friendly and make it their aim to make the day really special for you. The food was delicious and served beautifully, our guests commented that it was the best food they had eaten at a wedding. It is a beautiful venue for a wedding with so many places around the venue for fabulous photos.
We were so happy we picked the Inn at Dromoland for our wedding day.

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!

We booked our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland, in Decmeber 2019. Due to the pandemic, we had to move our date four times. From the first day we met the staff at The Inn at Dromoland, we were treated and looked after exemplary. With all the moving dates, there was never an issue, with Claire and

Pauline ringing our other suppliers to make sure dates worked.

The lead up to our wedding went so smoothly, we were in regular contact with Pauline. She left no stone unturned in the planning of the day. Everything was covered, from meal tasting, to decor, to music, to accommodations.

Our wedding day was such a great day. Everything went off without a hitch. So much so that our guests have been raving about it ever since. The staff were excellent and were well trained in covid protocols. The service was excellent and we always felt the hotel couldn't do enough for us.

We will most certainly be recommending our friends to contact The Inn at Dromoland in the future when their weddings come around.

We held our wedding reception at The Inn at Dromoland. We were dealing with Pauline and Claire.

As a COVID bride, amongst a lot of others, I have had to reschedule our date four times, and I have to say the service and hospitality that was received from the Inn at Dromoland was second to none. They made everything so stress free, which was a blessing, and nothing was an issue. After finally

having had our wedding celebration, I cannot recommend the hotel and staff highly enough. The welcoming, not just for us, but our families and friends was amazing, food was five stars, as was the service received throughout the weekend. The grounds that surround the hotel are perfect for photos. The location and size of the hotel is ideal for any wedding of any size. I would highly recommend the Inn at Dromoland for your wedding venue.

packages, they are so inclusive of everything you could possibly need. The venue is really pretty and the setting is beautiful. The staff were all really friendly when we went to meet them and Claire eased us through everything that would happen on the day. We booked with them that day and arranged to come back for our food tasting.

Wow the food is amazing we were blown away by the standard of the food an our guests are still talking about it months later.

Claire really is amazing and we were so lucky to have her help she was brilliant the whole way through answering all our questions and concerns and was amazing on the day.

We were so happy that our plans had to change and feel that everything worked out as it was supposed to.

The Inn at Dromoland is a wonderful venue and I would highly recommend it to anyone considering it as a future location for you wedding, you will not be disappointed.

drama day and the Inn at Dromoland delivered exactly that. We're not ones for micromanaging everything and we were happy to trust that the people at the hotel are the experts and indeed they were. There's nothing better than being able to sit back and enjoy your wedding day without a care in the world for any arrangements and that's exactly what we got. Everything ran so smoothly, we along with our families were completely relaxed which in turn meant our guests were completely relaxed, the food was delicious and there was plenty of it and the punch on arrival was particularly popular. The table decor was beautiful also. We loved that they served the evening food and the cake at the usual 10.30pm or 11pm and left it available so that our guests could eat it much later which of course they did. All of the serving staff were so friendly and helpful and even at 3 or 4am we were not made to feel unwelcome in the function room and there was no rushing us out of the place. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and that was due in no small part to the wonderful staff of the Inn at Dromoland. We've since gotten our photos from our photographer and the room and grounds look so amazing. The honeymoon suite is huge and very comfortable. If we had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing.

Inn have been amazing but the experience of having our own wedding there with all our family and friends has been out of this world! From the minute we met with Claire until the very end she has been a super star, she was there for us through every email, phone call and meeting and kept the show running for us and we cannot thank her enough. Myself and my bridal party were at the hotel the morning of the wedding to get ready and I can still remember just sitting there watching everything happen and not having a single thing to worry about because we were being kept up to date and looked after all morning ! My photographer and videographer had noticed how relaxed I was on the morning and I honestly have the staff at the inn to thank for that. The day was unforgettable, the food was fantastic, the layout and decor was just how I wanted it and not a single thing went wrong all day. Our pictures came out fantastic from the lovely areas around the inn! I would highly recommend the Inn at Dromoland to anyone looking around venues to have their wedding for both reception and civil marriage. We got married at the Inn and all of our guests complimented us on the service how it was so relaxed and how beautiful the sun room was , we had fantastic weather on the day to make it even better! To everyone considering the inn for their wedding We say go for it , you won't be disappointed. To everyone that was a part of our wedding day from start to finish we send our thanks for making it the best day of our lives.

We started our hotel search last November and looked at many venues. From my first point of contact with Claire Coughlan I have to say she was so professional but we also got the feeling that she was interested in our wedding and us as a couple.

Nothing was a problem to Claire and when deciding

Read More

on the menu and wine she gave us time and advice. Claire is super at her job and is a credit to The Inn at Dromoland. She never put any pressure on us for anything and was there at the end of an email at anytime.

On the day itself I have to say the food and service was 100%. The staff were so friendly and super organised. The bridal suite was amazing.

The front of house and bar staff to the waiting staff in the function room they were all excellent.

The day after the wedding Claire was there to finalise everything and she had all flowers,cake etc kept safely in one place and made sure that all was not damaged.

Some hotels we have been we would get the vibe after the wedding that your weren't important or your business was no longer needed or wanted . We stayed in the hotel bar until about 4pm that afternoon and again the food, drink, service and atmosphere was excellent.

To sum it all up we have no regrets in choosing The Inn at Dromoland for our wedding and we certainly will be returning and would consider it for other family events in the future.

Kind Regards

Also want to mention Grace Events who work with the Inn at Dromoland in decorating the reception room and indeed the hotel itself for weddings. Louise is fantastic and definitely knows her stuff. The room looked amazing and again no matter what I asked we were accommodated.
A big Thank You to all involved in the Inn at Dromoland for making our wedding reception so wonderful.

Thank you and your team for an absolutely incredible day! We loved every moment of it and could not be happier! The food was fantastic and our guests raved about how good the food was and how well it was presented. One of our guests is the executive chef for a 1200 room 5-star hotel in a very well known and popular chain in the US with a team of over 70 chefs working under him and he was very impressed with the meal saying there was very little he would have changed and he is a hard man to please who pulls no punches!

All our guests were so impressed with the venue. Especially the outdoor reception which they loved. The setup for the ceremony was lovely and felt very intimate,something all our guests commented on.
