We are delighted we chose the Armada. We were treated like family everytime we visited! Grainne is just outstanding at her job. Our day was perfect. Our guests still rave about the venue, service and food.

The Armada Hotel was the ideal setting for our wedding day. We had our ceremony and reception at the hotel. The sun shone on the day of our wedding so that meant we were able to have our ceremony outdoors over looking the Atlantic Ocean. It really is a stunning setting for a wedding. The staff at the hotel were fantastic in the lead up to our wedding and on the day. The team of wedding/event co-ordinators are all so professional and approachable there and Marita who we were mainly dealing with went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly on our wedding day. She could not have done more for us, always so efficient in responding to any queries we had prior to the day. Our guests commented on the professionalism showed at all times from the staff of the Armada Hotel and how the food and service was superb. A massive thank you to all the staff for ensuring we had an unforgettable day. We would highly recommend the Armada Hotel as a beautiful and picturesque wedding venue.

We cannot thank the Armada enough for all the effort that went into ensuring we had a wedding we will treasure forever. We constantly have guests tell us that it was the best wedding they have even been at and that’s all down to their wonderful team. Our wedding coordinator Grainne was exceptional! Her input not only on the day, but in the lead up too, was invaluable. She is one in a million. There is no where else I would have chosen to have my wedding - it was faultless from start to finish.

From the stunning location to the amazing staff I can’t fault anything about our Wedding in the Armada except maybe the weather but they can’t control that!! We were so lucky to have Grainne as our wedding planner and from our first meeting with her we were completely blown away with her. Her friendliness, professionalism and warmth were second to none. No matter what we wanted it was never a problem and what’s more we got so many tips and hints from her also. In the lead up to the wedding the hands on approach was fantastic and it was brilliant that so much stress was taken from us as the hotel do so much for the couple. On the day itself everything went perfectly, all the staff went above and beyond including replacing the grooms shirt after he burnt a hole in it while ironing it that morning and all of our guests said it was one of the bests weddings they have ever been too and I know some of our guests have since gone back to the Armada for their own stay as they were so impressed. We can never thank Grainne and indeed all the staff for giving us the day of our dreams and they will forever hold a special place in our hearts x

Cannot fault the Armada. We had the pleasure of dealing with Gràinne as our wedding coordinator and she honestly went above and beyond to make the day as stress free and enjoyable as possible as did all the staff. Fantastic service from start to finish - I would highly recommend!

I can't recommend the Armada Hotel enough. We had been to one wedding there before but we knew that the Armada was where we wanted our wedding (we didn't bother even looking at any other venues!) The location is absolutely stunning. Even if the weather is miserable, it doesn't impact things. As my family is from West Limerick, all my immediate family stayed at the hotel the night before. It was like everyone had been briefed as to who we were - they couldn't do enough for us from the reception staff to Tony in the front of house at the restaurant and all of the waitressing staff. Although I suspect they are like that anyway!! :) The day of the wedding was perfect. Grainne the coordinator was really great. Cool, calm and collected to be precise. In fairness, we had such a chilled out morning as everything (ceremony and afters) was in the hotel. But it was the little touches - like the hotel having sandwiches and scones sent up the room as we were getting our hair and make-up done, Grainne looking after our decorations and putting out our cake. All of that added up to making the set up for the day so easy. The ceremony space was beautiful - we got a gazebo through Grace Events and there was a red carpet entrance for us. The space was set out beautifully. For the drinks reception we had mojitos, ice-cream and canapes - which all the guests loved. Grainne and some of the staff made it their business to find me and my new husband to ensure that we had some as well (as we were off taking pictures!), which was great. The dinner itself was superb!! So much food on offer, cooked perfectly. We got the confit of duck leg, vegetable soup, choice of chicken or roast leg of lamb, and a trio of desserts. It was yummy. My advice to other people looking at this venue - look no further! Our date for the wedding was based on two things - the availability of this hotel and the availability of the celebrant we wanted. We didn't have a special date in our head. Prior to the wedding, all of the coordinators, Grainne, Marita and Claire, were very helpful. We dealt with them via email. All of the set-up, tasting, table plans etc were done efficiently and with no delay or drama. Even when we asked for a large top table (for 24 people!) and regular tables for everyone else, it was done with no hassle. Also the hotel has gone through some updates to the rooms and function room / reception areas so it's all very fresh. 5 stars throughout - highly recommended!

The Armada Hotel went above and beyond all my expectations for our wedding. Being in the industry myself and a lot of our guests also, we felt a bit of pressure to put on a spectacular day! We were put completely at ease by Marita, the hotels amazing wedding coordinator, no request was too big. So many guests commented on how perfect everything was which is the most wonderful thing to hear! The day itself was flawless, except for the weather but it really didn't matter, it kept everyone together! All the staff were so wonderful to deal with. I was planning the day from abroad and the hotel were so helpful and accommodating with anything we needed. A week has passed now and we're still on such a high! I've never had a better experience and I couldn't recommend it enough. We can wait to return!

We got married in July and couldn't have asked for more from the Armada team. Me and my husband are both from Galway and had travelled all over Ireland looking for the perfect wedding venue. Once we visited the Armada Hotel I knew straight away. Not only do they have the perfect destination the hotel is so unique it was the different I was serching for. We met with Claire the wedding planner who was just brilliant from day one anything we asked for she could do it. With us living in Galway Claire made it so easy for us by sending us pictures of the reception room set up and all the different styles even down to which church we should pick! She really made it stress free for me and I couldn't thank her enough. For all the brides getting married and have not picked a venue yet, I would highly recommend to visit the Armada and just see for your selfs why I fell in love with it.

We cannot speak highly enough of the Armada Hotel and the quality service that Claire and her team provided on the day. They made our big day so special for us as we felt so relaxed from the moment we arrived into the hotel and we look back now with great memories.

Anyone considering the Armada Hotel as a wedding venue I could not recommended it highly enough. Frank the hotel manager was the first person we met when we looked at the hotel and he immediately impressed us. Claire and the wedding team are professional, friendly and just brilliant at what they do. The have been a pleasure to deal with on every occasion that we visited them in the lead up to the wedding. The entire staff at the hotel must be commended also and how friendly and efficient they are. The setting is beautiful and the views set it apart from anywhere else. There is not a single thing I would have changed about the wedding day and the days before and after and that is down the the brilliant service provided to us by the hotel. Nothing is a big deal, the staff are relaxed and happy and that is very clear to see. All our friends and family were extremely impressed. The food was beautiful from the fish and chips the night before to the entire wedding meal. It was first class. It must be noted how impressive the food was and how hard the kitchen must work to provided food of that standard to 180 people at the one time! We have been told by numerous guests that it was the best wedding meal they ever had. It is all the little touches that set this hotel apart. I can't wait to go back and stay again!

I work as a wedding photographer and I have worked in over a hundred hotels all over the country. When myself and my fiance Laura walked in to the Armada Hotel we knew that this was the venue for our wedding instantly. It ticked all the boxes. It's beautiful location, above average wedding reception room and friendly staff made it a easy decision for us. Frank and Grainne answered all our questions and dealt with any issues in a prompt and professional manner in the run up to the big day. On the day everything ran smoothly. All the guests were raving about the quality of food at the meal. Grainne provided great help on the day on keeping everything on track. She remembered things that we had forgotten about. We were absolutely delighted with hotel and we could not recommend this venue more highly to any potential couples.

From the minute we met Marita and she showed us around the hotel we knew it was the place for us to get married. We cannot say enough about how helpful, flexible, professional and friendly Marita and all of the staff were in the hotel. Nothing was a problem. The day was so relaxed and went off without a hitch and much of this was down to the organisation and approach from the staff team. The food was excellent all of our guests have commented on this and the friendliness of the staff. To Marita and the staff team thank you so much for making our day so special.

One amazing hotel!! They could not have done more for us...to putting up with crazy questions, always replying quickly, accommodating our every need, fabulous food, and looking after our guests so well. We are very proud to say we were married in the Armada hotel in Spanish Point. If we were to do it all over again there is nothing we would change. The staff are 5* and will make you feel like a celebrity not just on your wedding day but every time you visit! We love going back to the Armada and reliving the memories. We would 100% reccomend this hotel...you won't be disappointed!

Alan my husband and I got married this year at the Armada Hotel, Spanish Point in April 2016. Being both from Co. Clare we fell in love with the Armada and the picturesque surroundings of the west and being right beside the Atlantic Ocean, we knew it was the right location for us. Nothing was an issue, everything we requested in the hotel was heard. From dealing with Claire and (Marita our Wedding Co-Ordinator) they were a pleasure to work with and very helpful and Frank the general manager who assisted us on our departure. We had the best wedding weekend that we could have ever had. They pride themselves in giving the best local quality they can give which they do. Always improving their service and the renovations in the hotel especially this year when they upgraded some rooms and the new Ocean Bar which was just finished in time for our wedding in April. We can't wait to return for Christmas with our family to bring back all the lovely memories we shared and on our first anniversary next year. Sylvia & Alan O'Connell

We had very little to worry about when it came to the venue , which was a great relief . We knew the Armada Hotel had it all covered and the day would go smoothly . The food was great and the service we great also aside from few wobbly trays and glass mishaps from the younger staff but all a learning curve for them. The room was set up beautifully , with fabulous table décor. If I was to do it all over again , I would choose the Armada Hotel again, but I would have chosen the Pig on Spit for the next day ,oppose to after's food, as it was not out on the floor long enough for all the wedding party to enjoy.

The hotel is beautiful and in a fantastic location but besides all that the level of attention and service we received ,not just on the day but during the months of planning leading up to our wedding, was just fantastic. Anything we wanted was catered for and nothing was too much trouble. Cannot praise the management and staff highly enough for the service we received, ye made our wedding day perfect .

We don't know where to begin or how to praise this hotel, it`s staff, food and location highly enough. They made our most memorable day in life to be WAY beyond our expectations!!! The planning process was made simple and enjoyable by our Wedding Co-ordinator, Marita. It was easily tailored to what we desired as a couple and within our budget. They have fantastic packages available to suit many different budgets and styles. Marita, was excellent! She was always there to answer any query we had (and always with a smile). A real experienced professional who made the planning easy going, stress free and fun. I still can't believe how perfect she got the day as we had loads of bits and pieces we had brought ourselves to add to the day (message in bottles, bathroom baskets, etc) and they were all slotted in to perfection! The staff are not just excellent but are the nicest, friendliest people who obviously enjoy what they are doing everyday. The food on our wedding day was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Every one of our guests were raving about the food! In planning our menu, there were so many different options to choose from and each as nice as the other. I don't think you will beat this location anywhere in the country... where else would you be right on the Atlantic coast with views that will make you stand still?! All of these added together make for a dream wedding location. We have already been back for two nights since our wedding and many of our guests have been down or are planning to return after such an enjoyable time at our wedding!!!

The Armada Hotel was the most perfect wedding venue, stunning setting, beautiful function room and incredible food. Many of our guests told us it was the best meal they had ever had at a wedding. The staff were just brilliant, responding to our every request, nothing was too much. I would not hesitate in recommending this venue to anyone!!

I would highly recommend the Armada Hotel to future brides and grooms who want the best for their wedding day. We got married here in July 2015 and can honestly say there wasn't one thing we would change. Marita Morrissey wedding coordinator was a pleasure to deal with. She was always available to answer any questions even my random texts at 5am and nothing was ever an issue. She really knows how to put a stressed bride at ease. They have a wide range of packages to offer and tailored ours to exactly what we wanted. The venue ticked all the box's from the amazing setting to the transformation of the beautiful ballroom but in particular the food and service. Our guests were highly complimentary of the meal and so are we. I have also had the pleasure of being a guest at other weddings and am amazed how 1 venue can take on such transformations to meet the couples needs. So if you want your special day to be one to remember for all the right reasons I would recommend the Armada Hotel.

We got married at this amazing venue in July 2015. From the day we booked to the days after the wedding and since then we couldn't be happier. The professionalism shown by Marita and her team is second to none, everything was so easy. The variety of packages is amazing and the flexibility shown by the hotel when choosing our package was great. Nothing was too much to ask for. The atmosphere every time we visited and on our big day was so relaxed and enjoyable. The day was everything we asked for and more, it was perfect. We can't thank the Burke family, Marita, Frank and their team enough and we also can't recommend them all and the venue enough. Anyone thinking of getting married in Clare need to go to the Armada hotel.

Our wedding was fabulous even though the weather turned on the day and we had to change the layout of the whole ceremony it worked out great! Marita abd all the staff did everything we asked for and more. I especially want to thank the night manager/ porter for my sandwich at 4am i hadn't eaten all day due to morning sickness and nerves he was a topper for that x

All I can say about the Armada is that it is pure class. When my husband and I went to choose a venue, we really wanted somewhere that we felt a connection with. The minute we entered the hotel on a cold rainy December, we were brought to the wonderful Johnny Burkes pub and were promptly brought over coffee and lovely treats by the fireside and made feel at ease after our drive. It's this feeling of being "part of the family" is what really drew us to choose this venue over all the others. The food is just exceptional - we went for the tasting menu which was raved about. The views are breathtaking and the rooms are so tastefully decorated. The staff are so professional and warm, and Marita, the wedding co-ordinator is an absolute gem. Our wedding planning and three nights in the hotel were just a wonderful, stress free experience, which is exactly what we wanted. We've already been back for a couple of nights, and received such a warm welcome back that we were really touched. I hope we get to go back every few years for that wonderful welcome, and maintain that connection to a beautiful part of County Clare.

I would have no hesitation recommending any couple to book their wedding at the armada. You are in the best hands and they will look after every aspect of your day from start to finish. We found Marita the wedding coordinator so helpful and professional to deal with. She was amazing in how she coordinated the details of our day. Her team and the hotel manager frank were an absolute pleasure to deal with. The armada have a huge variety of packages so you can add to suit your own budget. They are very flexible and I am sure they would have something or a package to suit every bride and grooms needs. All our guests travelled for the wedding. The food was sensational. People remarked on the staff, the service, the quality of the food and of course the function room was decorated amazingly. We were so impressed with our wedding day. Marita and her team at the armada made sure we had nothing to worry about and everything down to little details were taken care of. We have since been back as guests for a friends wedding and the food and service was impeccable. We are hoping to stay down there for our first wedding anniversary in December. Any bride and groom looking for a beautiful winter or summer venue by the sea you will not go wrong with this amazing hotel.

Marita the wedding co ordinator is worth her weight in gold! We felt she really cared about our wedding, as much as if it were her own day. Her attention to detail and professionalism is second to none. All the guests commented on how friendly and capable the staff were. The armada has it all!

I was organizing my Wedding from abroad but the staff at the Armada made it so easy for me that I never felt stressed. They are so professional, approachable and willing to help that I really felt like I must be the only Wedding they have on for the whole year. I really got that much attention! They gave great tips on the menu choices and decoration in the hall. It was also great having the BBQ there the following night too as it made the following day as enjoyable as our big day.

Amazing service, nothing was too much trouble! I would highly recommend the venue to everyone!

Wow where to being. The venue is second to none the Atlantic, Spanish Point beach, the Armada hotel it is all picture perfect. The staff at the Armada hotel couldn't do enough for us and our guests, from the fabulous food, to accommodating every one of our guests requests nothing was too much trouble. The staff have a warmth and friendliness you don't find in a lot of establishments and it was clear that they enjoyed being part of the Armada team and took pride in delivering a quality service. We loved our wedding day we didn't have to worry about anything as every detail was taken care of for us. The Armada is amazing the staff are nothing short of wonderful our wedding was beyond our hopes and expectations.

We really enjoyed your hotel, the meal was excellent, served promptly and everyone love Johnny Burkes Bar for the session. We are still getting praise about our wedding day in the Armada. We did not have to lift a finger. The hotel and the setting made our first family wedding a really memorable day.

I have been meaning to write since we got back from honeymoon. I wanted to take the time to thank you sincerely for making our wedding day the best day that we could have imagined. So much planning goes into the there but there is so much that is outside of your control and you put trust in others to make it as perfect as you would yourself. Your staff exceeded our expectations and we were truly grateful for the professionalism your staff showed at all times. All of our guests commented on the food, staff and overall experience of staying at the Armada. We had a BBQ the next day and there was another wedding happening at the same time yet again we were made feel like we were the only ones in the hotel. Marita could not have done enough for us. I would like to name all your staff individually and thank them but I cannot remember all of their names. Susie always answered my calls and questions with a massive can do attitude, nothing was too much and no questions too silly (I am sure I asked a lot of silly questions). The banqueting manager was so attentive on the day also. All of your staff from the front of house, housekeeping and the entire management team are truly wonderful and an extremely professional bunch of people that are a credit to your hotel. I would recommend your hotel 100% to anyone getting married or just visiting. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts.

We have to thank The Armada for a fantastic day on our wedding Friday August 2nd last. The food was amazing and the service was excellent-from reception/bar staff/accommodation etc. All of the staff are extremely friendly, one of our guests that attended the afters had arrived early and was greeted by one of the managers and had a drink in the bar and one of the staff came back up and informed her when the meal was over and everything. Every time we called the hotel the reception staff were so bubbly and always asked how plans were going. Marita has been fantastic from start to finish and so efficient! You couldn't have a better person for wedding manager. They have a great name for weddings and we were delighted and proud to have picked their venue. We would agree with the feedback from all our guests-everything was top notch! Thanks a million.

Top standards of efficiency from all parties involved. We could not have chosen a more beautiful venue for our Wedding Day. Everything was 100%, very attentive staff, food was fantastic. Everyone spoke on the night about how lovely the whole day was. Please pass on our thanks to all involved. Many thanks again.
