The wedding day was a beautifully day but the hotel made are day so much more special with the staff and the food it was out of this world. So many people had never been there but have all went up since our wedding for food and some has even stayed over. The standards are really out of this world

Claire the wedding planner for the clanard court hotel dealt with our weddin from start to finish. I can not speak highly enough about what she did for us. The organisation the detail of everything and claire made our day so relaxing and stress free. The service was brilliant and friendly and quick. We still have people telling us about the beef it was the nicest they've ever had. Brilliant day all round was had thanks to the clanard staff and especially Claire wow and thank you. 5 star rating but could easily give 10. Thank you.

The staff at the Clanard Court Hotel were fantastic, from the first meeting we held with Claire to checking out the day after the wedding. We had an outdoor wedding in the garden, which was beautiful. The staff were so accommodating as we had a few unusual requests for them, however nothing was asking too much. The day of the wedding ran like clock work, thanks to Gosha and her team. All our guests were raving about the hotel, the food, the garden, the bedrooms, everything. We had a fantastic day and will certainly not be strangers to the Clanard Court Hotel.

We had our wedding here on the 5th July 2019 and couldn't have asked for a better day or venue..From the moment we arrived the staff put us at ease and I had so much confidence in them that our day would run perfectly. But we could never have dreamed how amazing it would be. We wanted for nothing and were left to enjoy our day. Our guests are still commenting on the beautiful garden where we held our ceremony and the friendly staff that on more than one occasion went above and beyond for our guests. The food on the day was out of this world also.I could go on and on. We would highly recommend this venue!

Words cannot describe the day we had it was absolutely fabulous. The venue could not have done anything more for us. From the beginning of the planning Claire & Emma were so professional and made us feel so at ease. Nothing was ever a problem. From the moment we arrived and our guests arrived you were made to feel very special. With it been a family run hotel you felt you were joining your extended family as the staff are so professional and friendly and we commend Mary the owner who among others overseen every aspect from start to finish. Everyone of our guests was made feel special and as for us the happy couple - we were treated like royalty. As I have said it is very hard to put into words except - The venue = Perfect, Gardens = Perfect, Food = Perfect, Hospitality = Second to none. Since our wedding day all our guests have come back to us saying the day was perfect and the venue was brilliant. They could not do any more for us. All that's left to say a huge huge thank you to Mary, Emma and Claire and to all the staff for making our day truly truly extra special. Love and thank you so much Des & Sinead. Mr & Mrs Mulhere

We couldn’t have picked a better venue for our wedding- everything was perfect. They were a pleasure to deal with from the start, especially Emma & Claire. Nothing was ever a problem. The grounds were a major reason we choose to get married here, the gardens are so beautiful & the function room itself is stunning. Rooms were perfect- just what we needed. We had Adam looking after us on the day of our wedding and he was brilliant, kept us both so calm and really looked after us on the day. Everyone told us it was the nicest food they’ve ever had at a wedding, service was so quick & staff offered seconds to everyone which they all loved!! Loved everything about this venue it was the perfect place for our big day!

The Clanard Court is by far Ireland's best wedding venue. From the first day we met Emma and Claire we were made feel so at ease and everything ran like clock work from that day until the morning after the wedding - everything was amazing. Nothing was an issue, we didn't have to worry about a thing. They made sure we were totally relaxed and that all we had to do was enjoy our day. A huge number of guests told us it was the best, most relaxing wedding venue they'd been to due the food and room, but most of all because of the hospitality. Emma, Claire, Gosia and all the staff looked after each of us so well; they are true professionals. All of the food from the canapes at the drinks reception right through to breakfast the following morning, was a huge hit with all of the guests, everything was absolutely delicious! A huge thank you to everyone in the Clanard Court for making it the best day we've ever had!

Hi Catherine & Callum. Thanks for the lovely review and your kind words. Gosia, Claire & Emma are all chuffed with the high praise. They truly are a great team. We have a great motto here "Teamwork makes the Dreamwork" We all row in together and do our best to pull out all stops and ensure that everything goes off smooth on the day. Our team really enjoyed looking after you and your guests, they could sense the relaxation, fun and festivity throughout the day which is lovely to be a part of. From all the team at the Clanard Court Hotel

5 stars is just not enough. We cannot recommend The Clanard Court highly enough. All the staff were so wonderful and easy to deal with. Emma and Claire and Gosia are the most helpful people to work with. Nothing was to big or to small to ask of them. They completely exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond for us. All our guests have commented on was how wonderful the meal was. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Clanard Court. From the moment we first met with Emma to visit the hotel we were put at ease and just made feel so special and at home. We can't wait to go back and stay again. The Clanard Court is always going to hold such a special place in our hearts. We cannot recommend them enough.

We would like to thank the Clanard Court Hotel for organising our amazing wedding on the 21st April, it was the best day of our lives. From day 1, we had the support of Claire and Emma to help with the organising of our wedding, offering advice, ideas and support. The wedding day went so smoothly and stress free. All of the staff at the wedding were friendly and tended to the needs of our guests with great enthusiasm, nothing was to much. To the super Gosia, well what can say, amazing person. Gosia made our day stress free, fun, relaxing and so much more. To say she went above and beyond her duties would not do her justice. Gosia you are a credit to the hotel, you made our wedding day the best day of our lives and we are eternally grateful. We would highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel for your ceremony and wedding, all the staff will go above and beyond there duties to make the day perfect and as special as they can. Thanks you so much, Hazel & David Sammon

We got married in the Clanard court Hotel on the 13th of April 2019 and it was just an amazing day from start to finish! We cannot thank the Clanard's staff enough for everything. From the moment we booked our wedding here Emma and Claire were always touching base with us to make sure all of our plans were going ok they really made us feel at ease throughout the build up to the big day. On the day itself we were treated like royalty all day the staff really looked after us and cared that we and our guests had the best day. Gosia was just amazing! She made us feel so relaxed and was so family focused, making sure our 2 year old was fed first and taking the time to play with him. We've had so many of our guests coming back to us praising the hotel's food and service. We cannot thank the Clanard Court Hotel enough for making our day so perfect!

What an amazing experience from when we booked to the day after our wedding. Emma and claire were great always there to help with anything and everything. The day itself ran so smoothly. All the staff were amazing and so friendly. Everyone felt at home and so relaxed. If I was to do it all again I would definitely do it at the clanard. The staff are a credit to the hotel.

The staff at the Clanard Court are genuine and helpful. They go out if their way to make sure that you enjoy your day. No detail is too small and No problem is too big. They are on hand to offer advice and give recommendations, and generally just make your life easier.

As MOTB I couldn’t praise the Clanard Hotel enough. From first contact they made everything so easy for us. We stayed on the night before and were using my suite to prepare. It was perfect. Big enough for everyone to get ready. Staff in particular should warrant a mention as they were so accommodating and helpful. A special mention to Gurda the food manager. She displayed the cake in a unique way and was more than helpful throughout. Also bar manager( don’t have his name sorry) was top notch and went out of his way to help us with taxis home etc. The family run hotel was wedding venue 2018 and showed all signs of why they were picked. Thank you Clanard Court.

Hotel and staff within hotel where amazing and couldn’t be more helpful! Only downfall is the cake supplier that’s included in the package, she is very unreliable and unprofessional, cooks from her own home with no H&S in place! Doesnt respond to calls or texts and has no sample pictures of previous cakes as she’s only started doing wedding cakes! Hotel ended up having to get a new supplier as we still had no cake sorted 5 weeks before our day! That was the one and only downfall for the hotel, other than that I couldn’t reccomend this hotel enough

Where to start? We had our wedding in The Clanard on NYE and what a day and night to remember. From the 1st initail contact with this hotel we were beyond impressed with the level of service and time given by both Claire and Emma leading up to the big day. The day of the wedding the food was what the guests commented most about not to mention the professionalism of Gaish and her team. It is a fantastic hotel with brilliant staff and the perfect venue for a magical day.

Our wedding reception at the Clanard Court Hotel was such a wonderful experience, and we are so grateful to Claire, Emma and Gosia for ensuring that the entire day ran smoothly.

If you are considering the Clanard court for your wedding....book it....you will not be disappointed by the amazing efforts of the staff at this venue. I could honestly not be happier with how our wedding day went and the preparations leading up to it although stressful (for my own reasons) everything on the day was so beautiful. We live in Australia and came home to get married in November. Unable to take too much time off work we arrived only 2 weeks before our big day. Claire and Emma were amazing at answering all of our enquiries very fast and preparing everything in a calm, unpressured manner. We had lots of changes leading up to the final preparations and they accommodated it all without any hesitation. They were always just a call or email away and handled pretty much everything. My husband's brother was unable to come and this was very upsetting news for us all. I managed to arrange with Claire and Emma (very late I might add) that we could skype him in to the speeches. It was all taken care of so well on the day by Liam and was so amazing to have our overseas family and friends involved. The room was decorated just beautifully, so elegant, I could not have dreamt it any better. You always have those what if moments leading up to the wedding but with Claire and Emma and all of the Clanard court staff on hand reassuring you that everything is under control, you actually can relax and just focus on your big day, knowing that everything will be organised. A great big Thank you once again to all of the Clanard court team for making our day so special.

We had our wedding here on 3rd November 2018. From start to finish the staff at the Clanard court hotel could not do enough for us. From the moment of booking until the morning of checking out this hotel and their amazing team did not disappoint. Emma & Claire ensured everything was as we wanted and their attention to detail is outstanding. The Clanard dont make you feel like your a customer , they make you feel like family. We can not recommend this hotel highly enough a 5 star review doesnt even rate it high enough . The food is amazing and the catering team led my Gotia are fantastic. Thank you again you really made our day extra special and our guests feel like home. Any one thinking of booking this venue for their big day just do it TRUST me you will not be disappointed. Mark & Julie.

We could not have asked for more from the staff at The Clanard Court Hotel. From the day we first walked into the hotel to see it until the morning after the wedding they were nothing short of incredible. Nothing was too big or too small, they were so laid back which helped us to be more relaxed as well. They were just lovely down to earth people and we got on from word go. There was never any pressure from them with deadlines or when decisions had to be made. We simply coud not thank them enough and all our guests commented on how nice the hotel and all the staff were. I honestly can only say positive things about the hotel and if I was to get married again tomorrow it would definitely be in the Clanard Court Hotel!!

From the minute we went to the Clanard Court for their wedding showcase more than 2 years ago we knew we had to have our wedding there. There was no comparison from previous venues we had viewed. Friendly staff and a warm welcoming atmosphere is what had us sold. Their wedding packages went above and beyond other venues we viewed and catered for our budget. We wasted no time in securing our date. Emma and Claire were always at the end of an email and nothing was to much to ask. We spent many an afternoon there having afternoon tea and dinner with various family members and that warm welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff never faded. We were really excited for October 2018. Gosia and Adam looked after us for our meal tasting and would not relax until Emmet and I were 100% happy with our choices. Gosia assured us our food would be top notch on the day, and she wasn't wrong. We had the best day ever on October 27th. It was all we could of wished for and more. All our guests complimented how attentive every staff member was and no request was to much. The food came from the kitchen piping hot and if you wanted seconds, even thirds you got it. The whole staff team were excellent on our big day and we couldn't recommend The Clanard Court Hotel enough. Thank you for making our day so special.

From our first meeting with the Clanard Court Wedding Coordinators to our check out the day after our wedding, we felt special. Every detail of our big day was planned and executed without any issue. Nothing was too big an ask for the staff. As you all will know the planning of a wedding and hoping all goes well on the day is a constant stress!! Well we didn’t need to worry, as our regular meetings with the wedding coordinators left us with a stress free feeling every time. Apart from the professional attitude, the competent manner with which all the hotel staff performs their duties, there was a sense of genuine joy from the staff at helping create a perfect experience for our big day. Our guests complemented us on our choice of venue, the delicious food which was served just as we requested. While we chose it, the Clanard Court created the magical experience for us. It’s not just a day you’ll never forget, it’s an experience you will never forget. Trust the Clanard Court Hotel and Staff to make your day special in every way.

Claire, Emma, Liam, Gosia, Adam & all the team who make the weddings at Clanard Court so special are exceptional at ensuring attention to detail and professionalism in the lead up to, and on, your wedding day. They catered for our every need! There was no such thing as a silly request and they went above and beyond to look after us on our big day. The food was plentiful and delicious. The staff were so obliging and welcoming towards all of our guests. We knew we were in safe hands from the moment we booked this venue right up to when we arrived on our wedding day! We can’t recommend them highly enough - thanks again for everything!

From the very first time we ever walked into the Clanard Court Hotel we loved it! We came across the hotel by chance one day whilst looking for somewhere for Sunday dinner, the moment we walked in we knew it was the perfect hotel for our wedding. We were caught off guard and so thrilled at our little find that we pre-booked our big day there and then. The staff are out of this world, they are so kind and accommodating and nothing is a problem for them. We had the pleasure of working with Emma while organising our big day, she is just a gem! The nicest lady you’ll ever meet, she made us feel like the only couple that were ever going to be married there & that just added to our already amazing experience. All our planning went swimmingly with Emma or Claire always at the end of the phone if there was ever any queries. We can’t thank them enough. On our wedding we had Gosha running the show and my god can that lady run a show...She is AMAZING at what she does. Always there with a big smile working her magic making everything perfect. All our guests were raving about the hotel...the food, the staff, the service, the rooms. We can’t thank the staff in the Clanard Court enough, we had the most magical day and the only thing we complain about is the fact we can’t do it all again! ???? We’d 100% recommend the hotel to anybody looking to book their big day.

Well where do I start. From the very beginning when I met with Claire and Emma, I knew this was the venue for us, to have our special day. Anytime, I phoned or emailed with questions regarding our wedding both Emma and Claire were so helpful. No request was too much. As for the day itself, I may not have had the weather, but that didn't dampen the day. Everything little detail was exemplary, nothing was left to chance. All of my guest raved about the quality of the food to the amazing staff on the day. Gosha, was there for everything throughout the day, and was just amazing. She is such a credit to the hotel. Adam, Gosha, Claire and Emma are such a fantastic team and made our day so relaxed. I would also like to thank all the other staff behind the scenes as well. I couldn't recommend this hotel enough for a wedding. I wish I could do it all over again

What can we say, we had an amazing day. We would like to give special thanks to McGivor!, Gosha and particularly Emma and Claire. All of the staff went above and beyond our expectations, little touches that we didn't expect we were so grateful for and surprised by, so thanks again guys for all you have done, you made our day so special, just about all of our guests have said they were very impressed by the service in the hotel and would love to do it all again!

I can't praise the Clanard Court enough, right from the first time we went to view the hotel and up to and including our big day the service we received from everyone we encountered was 5 star. Emma was a dream to deal with during the organising and couldn't do enough for us and Liam made sure the day went off without a hitch. The food was perfect and our guests are still talking about the day. We will most definately be recommending the Clanard Court to everyone!

We had our special day in the Clanard Court Hotel and we were so thrilled that we chose this venue. In the planning process Claire and Emma were so helpful and couldn't do enough for us,we really appreciated all their effort. On the day itself we were looked after by Gosia who made sure everything went smoothly and her attention to detail was amazing. ,Gosia is certainly a credit to the venue. The staff on the day were so friendly and attentive to ourselves and our guests,its such a perfect venue.The food was excellent and service first rate. Its also worth noting the beautiful garden adjacent to the function room which we found ideal for photographs. Also special thanks to Liam and Mary for all their kindness and making sure our special day was all we wished it would be.

On behalf of myself & Brian, I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff & management for making our day on the 24th August 2018 so special. From the very first time we visited the hotel, we were made to feel so welcome & relaxed. Any time I contacted Emma or Claire regarding anything they were very professional and helpful. On our big day, the staff were amazing & friendly. Gosha the wedding coordinator was brilliant. She couldn't do enough for us and our guests. All the guests said how brilliant & friendly she was. The food and service were amazing. It was piping hot when it got to our guests and they are still talking about how fab the food and service was on the day. Also a big thank you to John Higgins and the bar staff for serving drinks all day and till the early hours. I would highly recommend the Clanard Court hotel to anyone planning their special day. You won't be disappointed, the hotel & the staff are just amazing. Ann Marie & Brian Walsh.

We could not recomend the clanard hotel enough, from the very onset of our viewing of the venue up to our wedding day everything was to a very high standard. On the day the managment and staff helped to make our wedding day as special as it was. Food was excellent and all of our guests are still talking about it. I had the pleasure of staying at the hotel the night before and the morning of our wedding myself plus my 4 daughters had our makeup done by emma in the revive treatment rooms. My husband myself and our guests were very impressed with the services provided to us and would highly recommend the clanard court to any couple planning their wedding.

We cant say enough good things about the Clanard Court Hotel. The whole team were a pleasure to meet and made our big day very special. Everything was done that we asked and Emma and Claire really made the day go so smoothly with all that they organised. From the rooms to the food it was just brilliant. It was the best day of our lives made even better by a super hotel.

Excellent day. Excellent staff. Top class service. Every guest at the wedding commented on the high quality level of service and the relaxed atmosphere created on the day by the hotel and staff. Words cannot describe our delight with the venue. From the moment we booked the venue we knew we made the right decision.

We were delighted with our choice of the Clanard Court Hotel for our Wedding. Emma and Claire were always on hand to help with our preparations and made the whole process easy. All the staff were so helpful throughout the preparations and on the day. The venue itself is lovely and the large and bright reception area was perfect for our drinks reception. The gardens behind the hotel are lovely for photos and that is where we got most of our photos so we could get back inside join the party! As for the ballroom it was beautifully laid out. The food was great and plenty of it! I would have no problem recommending the Clanard Court as a wedding venue for anyone. The hotel specialises in weddings and it is evident in how they approach everything they do. We were delighted with our big day.

We had our wedding here over the August bank holiday weekend and I couldn’t recommend them enough! All our guests commented on how good a time they had and how good the food was. Nothing we asked for was a hassle and when it came to the day, the organisation of the hotel was second to none which really helps to calm the nerves! Myself and Mark had an absolutely fantastic weekend. From the first time we met with Emma, the personal touch they added really stood out to us. We even had a bbq the night after and again, the food was amazing and we were very well looked after! As an extra bonus, the alpacas they have outside the hotel is a fantastic feature and talking point for guests! Would 100% recommend this hotel to any couple who are considering getting married here.

On behalf of myself and my husband the day could not have gone any better. The staff were so amazing that our guests still talk about them.

From start to finish, we only encountered real and passionate staff. It's been a real pleasure and treat to be looked after the way we've been in the run up to our wedding, on the big day and even the day after! Both of us and all our guests have been treated like vip's and our guests are still talking and raving about the venue, food, service and everything in between.

I knew from the minute we walked into the Clanard Court Hotel that it was the perfect venue for us. We were greeted with a lovely, warm, cosy atmosphere. The main features that attracted us were the lovely cosy, bright lobby that meets you the minute you walk through the main entrance and then the stunning view of the garden as you enter the ballroom. That was definitely the selling point for us! It is so hard to get a venue with nice gardens for photo's or to have your ceremony in and to have the natural light coming into the ballroom while sitting for your meal, it is just stunning. From the minute I spoke with Claire, the Wedding Coordinator, I completely felt at ease. From the very beginning, any ideas we put forward or had were always listened to and nothing was ever a problem. We were always told from the staff that 'it's your day so you can have what you want' and they meant every word. There was never any problem with asking/emailing queries, they always replied to us really quickly. Claire and Emma were great at keeping us up to date with what was needed and they made the whole planning process very easy and stress free! On the day, we had a small ceremony in the garden and the staff made sure that everything was set up perfectly in advance and helped us to keep it very personal and private. The meal and reception ran smoothly and Gosha, who looked after us on the day, was absolutely fantastic. She kept everything moving along without any interference to us or our guests. The food was absolutely fantastic, as it was at the meal tasting evening. All our guests commented on how amazing the food was and they couldn't get over the size of the bedrooms. They said that the staff were fantastic and they all felt so relaxed on the day and so well looked after. I highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel and their team to ensure that your Wedding Day really is one of the best days of your life! Thank you for everything!!

When I went to the wedding fair held in the Clanard I immediately knew this was the perfect venue for my special day. Upon walking into the Clanard we were met with a warm welcome. Although it was the impressive entrance with huge lanterns that caught my eye. Not to mention the lovely patio area with stunning brick wall and flowers at the entrance also. I could just imagine my guests sipping prosecco out there at the reception. After walking through the spacious reception area into the main function room it's safe to say I was blown away. I knew for sure I wanted to book the Clanard! I am so happy with my choice of venue as the Clanard turned out to be everything I hoped for in a venue and more. The wedding planners were on board with any ideas I had and were so fast to respond to queries. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble and they gave great advice too, it was clear they were the experts. This helped with the build up to the big day. As for the day itself, the staff were just incredible. The woman in charge that day took care of every little detail and made us both so relaxed. I felt like the staff were happy to be part of our wedding and you don't come across that often. As requested my reception singers sang outside on the patio while my guests sipped prosecco. The atmosphere here was something else, a memory I'll never forget. I just got goosebumps when I walked in and saw the room decorated and ready for the main event. My guests loved walking in and out of the room to the lovely landscaped gardens. It was just stunning!! The food was out of this world, but that came as no surprise as I've eaten in the Clanard a few times now and the food is always amazing. Everyone that attended my wedding is still commenting on how nice the hotel was. I must also note that I stayed in the hotel twice before the wedding and I noticed how spotlessly clean it always is. This is important and it's clear the hotel is well maintained. Thanks again to the Clanard..

We got married in the Clanard Court Hotel on the 15th of June and it was the most magical day of our lives. From the moment we first visited the hotel I knew we would be in safe hands. Claire and Emma are fantastic, and in the lead up to the wedding they were on hand for any queries I may have had, nothing was too much trouble. The wedding day itself went like clockwork, the hotel looked beautiful and everyone commented on how amazing the food and atmosphere was in the hotel. Liam and Claire were out of this world on the day of the wedding and I can honestly say I wouldn’t have felt comfortable leaving the biggest and most important day of our lives in the hands of any other hotel.

We celebrated our wedding here on the 2nd of June 2018. It was so special! Everything was handled professionally from the planning of the day to every small detail on the day. The food and accommodation was excellent and the set up of the room. We would highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel

Well where do I start... From the moment I contacted the Clanard Court Hotel my mind was put at ease and I was so relaxed as I just knew I was in the best place for our special day. The staff couldn't have done anymore than they did, Any request now matter how big or small was met with a smile and the most positive attitude we actually felt like royalty. Our guests were stunned with the venue it was just so picturesque with such friendly staff who each and everyone had a smile on their face all day /night long and such a tranquil atmosphere and they could not get over how amazing the food was, every plate was the same quality as the top table as we knew it would be as my husband is a chef and it was one of our most important requirements for our wedding day. It is very easy to see that this beautiful hotel is a family run place as from the moment you walk through the front door you are treated with the love and support of a family who will do anything to make your wedding day the most memorable and magical day of your life.

We got married in May this year. All the staff in the Clanard court worked so hard to make sure we had an amazing day. We were organising our wedding from the UK where we live, Claire & Emma worked so hard to make everything as easy as possible. They were so flexible with arranging meetings that suited us & even organising a tasting for when we were home. Our day was so relaxed & everyone really enjoyed it.
Review by
From the moment we met Emma at the Clanard we knew she wanted the best day for us. We just got on so well. From the wedding fair to the tasting to the actual day we always felt they were part of the team. On the day Gosha looked after us and all our family and friends commented on how helpful and friendly the staff were. The food was amazing and the little touches that they did from assembling our donut table and personalizing it to giving our son exactly what dessert he wanted that wasn’t even in the menu, they couldn’t do enough. I’ve already recommended this hotel to my friend who’s recently gotten engaged.

We got married in the Clanard on 4th of May 2018..What a day and what a venue..Dealing with Claire/Emma on the organisation of the wedding was so easy..They made us feel so at ease and like we were the most important people in the world..The day kicked off with all I can describe as the perfect weather which allowed us to have our ceremony outside..Outstanding organisation by Mary and Gosia on the day to make sure everything ran like clockwork..I would strongly advise any1 who is thinking of having their wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel to make an appointment with Claire/Emma and have their big day in this wonderful venue..I promise you won't be disappointed.

Claire was so helpful throughout the build up to our wedding. On the day the staff could not do enough for us. We didn't have to worry about anything. Absolutely beautiful hotel with fabulous food.

From start to finish myself and my husband cannot fault the Clanard Court for a thing. In fact they went above and beyond to accommodate us. We originally picked the Clanard Court because of its beautiful private garden as we wished for an outdoor wedding. But the more contact we had with the hotel the more we fell in love with the place. Every staff member from reception to the wedding planners to the bar men and waitresses were so lovely. My brother fell ill a few months before our wedding and we were worried about having to move the wedding date...Clare and Emma 100% reassured me that the date could be changed without losing our deposit or the package we booked they really were amazing during a tough time. We have 3 little dogs we wanted in our wedding and the hotel had no problem with it they organised a safe place to keep them while we were busy and allowed us to have them in the garden for photos we were so delighted. Our day was amazing not one thing went wrong even when extra guests turned up the hotel dealt with the table planner and squeezed them in no problem. We even received a beautiful gift from the hotel left in our bridal suite for us. Many guests still talk about the food... mainly the sticky toffee pudding!!... amazing!!!! If we were to do it all again we would absolutely pick the Clanard Court and do it all the same again. If you are looking for a small and intimate venue with friendly staff amazing food and a fabulous ballroom with private garden the Clanard Court is for you :)

My husband and I got married at the Clanard Court Hotel this April and it was truly spectacular! Everyone we dealt with from the first time we went to check out the hotel to when we got married was so professional and friendly. They were always so ready to answer any questions we had, to give us advice when we needed it and to help us plan and organise everything we wanted for the day. We dealt with both Emma and Claire (and Gosha on the day) and they could not have made anything easier. It really was a load off knowing that they knew what they were doing when my husband and I didn't have a clue! I cannot thank all the staff at the hotel enough and I would definitely recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to any couples looking for a beautiful location filled with friendly and helpful people.

Our day was perfect from start to finish. All of the staff are great at their jobs and went out of their way to make everyone feel so welcome. Many of our guests commented at how friendly all the staff were. Claire, Emma, Goisha and Adam deserve special mention. If you’re looking for a home away from home for your big day this is the venue for you.

We cannot put into words how thankful we are that we chose the Clanard Court Hotel for our wedding day we can’t fault any aspect of it in any way!

We had our wedding in March in the Clarard. I couldn't fault it, from start to finish the day was spectacular. The staff are brilliant, catering for your every need, nothing is a problem. I 100% recommend the Clanard for a wedding. You won't be disappointed.

Our experience with the Clanard Court Hotel was an absolute pleasure from our first meeting with the team to the big day itself. Claire and Emma were invaluable in helping us plan the wedding and their advice and professional expertise made the planning experience so much more enjoyable. As our wedding day approached, we watched weather reports in horror as the Beast from the East threatened to gatecrash our wedding in the worst way possible! I read story after story of hotels forced to cancel weddings because of the huge snowstorm and, with guests from the U.S. just managing to land in time before flights were grounded, my worst nightmare of my wedding not going ahead was more of a possibility. On the morning of 1 March, the day before our wedding, I received a call from our Registrar confirming he had been directed not to travel to our wedding venue. At this point, we were devastated. It was then that the true magic of the Clanard Court Hotel became evident. Mary Fennin, the owner, assured us that our wedding would be going ahead and personally put us in contact with another wedding celebrant who lived locally. At this point, our photographer had phoned to say he was snowed in and couldn’t make the wedding. Magically, another local photographer contacted us and offered her services. On the morning of the wedding, it was evident that at least half of our expected guests could not travel to the wedding. We had our hearts set on the ballroom for our reception venue with its magnificent view of the hotel garden, which the snow had transformed into a winter wonderland. The amazing staff ensured that the room looked cozy and intimate. Everything about our wedding day was magical and our beautiful, snowy wedding photos serve as a permanent reminder of our perfect wedding in the perfect venue. With over and above service, the Clanard Court delivered us the perfect wedding day.

Oh where to start! We had the most amazing weekend in the Clanard Court. The staff were lovely and friendly, the management calmed me and kept everything going like clockwork, all the food was delicious - the wedding meal, the afters, the breakfast and the buffet on the second night. We had a humanist ceremony and the room was set up beautifully. Little touches like the waiter who kept a tray of the drinks reception food to one side for my husband and I, and then stood beside us holding it until we had our fill. One guest left early the following morning before breakfast had started but the kitchen cooked her a full Irish anyway. One guest arrived during dessert and was still provided with a full meal. Even though a lot of people arrived early, the hotel tried to accommodate early check in for them. It was just a wonderful weekend and I cant wait to visit the hotel again.

The Clanard Court was the first hotel we looked at and we knew when we walked in this was the place we wanted to have our wedding in from the first viewing to the day of our wedding Clare and Emma and Liam on the day were there for any questions we had and anything we asked for we got. They also advised us on certain things to do that you wouldnt no to do. I have to say every member of staff were brilliant very friendly and helpfull not only on the wedding day but anytime we went down. You can get makeup done in the hotel from Emma who is great at wat she dose. All in all this is a great hotel for a wedding and I would definitely recommended it to anyone thinking of getting married

Myself and my husband Niall honestly wouldn’t know where to start when it comes to this hotel. We had our wedding here and it was just such an amazing experience. From the moment we First met with Emma she was brilliant , herself and Claire were always at the end of an email and couldn’t do enough for us. Liam looked after us at our meal taster and on the day of our wedding and he couldn’t do enough for us. We had a big wedding with 245 people sitting for the meal and all our guests commented on how great and Efficient the service was. Thank you again guys xx

I was lucky enough to get a cancellation date 6 months beforehand so I arranged my wedding from Australia with 6 months to go. Everything was done via email with Emma & Claire and they were exceptional from start to finish. They took all the stress from me and allowed my parents to come taste the food as I obviously couldn’t be present. The day itself was amazing - decoration, food and everything in between. All of the guests were impressed with the food and drinks provided. I was so happy I chose the Clanard as our wedding venue and would highly recommend it to any bride and groom

We got married in the Clanard Court on the 11th of November 2017. We had the most amazing day!! From planning our wedding right up to the day after our wedding all the staff went above and beyond for us and our guests. All our guests loved the hotel! The food was delicious from the little nibbles after the ceremony to the main meal to the midnight snacks. We had our ceremony there too and along with the function room the decor and ambience was amazing! It felt so magical and romantic. I really can’t say anything negative about the Clanard Court. Even when we have stayed there before our wedding all staff were always very pleasant and so helpful. Plus the hotel itself has such a homely feel to it and you feel a warm welcome. We will look forward to staying there in the future again and we will treasure the memories we made!

When selecting our venue, we had looked at a few other hotels before we visited the Clanard. As soon as we walked in we fell in love with the place and after our meeting with Claire we were sold. From that moment until the DJ stopped, the staff, particularly Claire, Emma and Mary on the day could not have been more helpful. Picking the Clanard Court Hotel was a fantastic choice and our guests are still raving about the place and how they were looked after. We couldn’t recommend the Clanard Court as a wedding venue highly enough.

From start to finish our experience with the Clanard Court was amazing! A hidden gem in athy ...everything was perfect. The staff are so frendly and had everything under control the food, and atmosphere was also amazing. I would highly recommend this venue.

We met with Claire 1 of the wedding planners on the 28/06/17 and from that moment we knew that the Clanard was the place for us, The relaxed atmosphere, the friendly staff and the hotel itself was spotless. Claire explained all the packages and showed us some of the guest bedrooms which were amazing. We decided instantly to go with the Clanard after meeting with Claire.From there it only got better, Claire introduced us to Emma who was the other wedding planner and I must say they could not have done enough for us, They both stayed in contact via email up to the final day,They sent us loads of info and different links to there online wedding planning site. We went down for our menu tasting and the food was fabulous, We asked could we change something on 1 of the dishes and as expected it was no problem. We had guest staying in the hotel from the thursday to the Saturday as the wedding was on a friday, They had lunch there on the Thursday when they arrived and were that impressed they had Dinner there again that night. On the day of the wedding Mary took over and boy did she take over, She met us when we arrived, helped the Bride out of the car and then gave us both champagne, then told us to enjoy our special day and she would do the rest. She asked the names of the bestman and the grooms man and they would be her go to men if there was any problems, that way she could let us enjoy every moment of the day, but she didnt leave it there, every now and again she would pop over and just ask is everything ok and if you need anything just let me know. The food was served at 6pm and the only thing I can say it was savage we would recommend the Lamb 75% of our guest had it.The next morning all our guest could talk about was the Food,Staff,Hotel,Bedrooms and Mary they were all very impressed as were we. We were as important the morning after as the night before, We were told to take our time and dont rush just enjoy every last moment. Emma,Claire,Mary & Staff ye were amazing

From start to finish the Clanard helped us organise our wedding day. We had a pleasurable experience with all of the planning. I was completely relaxed on the day as I knew the staff had alot of experience dealing with weddings. They are extremely kind and ensured all were catered for on the day. Our guests were very pleased with the venue, the food and the staff and we got lovely feedback from people who visited from many parts of the country. I would recommend the Clanard Court to any couple who wish to have a very personal, homely and wonderful wedding.

Hi all, Im no good at putting things in but I will give it ago. Myself and John started planning our wedding in Oct 2016 it was an amazing time and when it came to picking a venue der are just so many to pick from. We had it in our heads we wanted a small wedding and a private venue so d search began. I came across the clanard court online and fell in love with it. I taught it would be well out of our price range because of the amazing setting and packages that they offer. After going to view the hotel I knew it was the one I wanted. We met with Claire and booked the hotel that day. I have to say Claire was amazing and always on the other end of the phone or email she put me right at ease. We had a civil ceremony in the hotel on Friday 13th of Oct 2017 and I have to say everyone said if was beautiful and an amazing setting. Liam and his team are fantastic and looked after us like royalty and treated our children like they wer celebrities. The drinks reception was beyond words so many different options and d food went down a real treat with the guests. We had a bouncy castle in a private garden to keep the children safe. The meal was amazing and every single person told me it was the best meal they had at a wedding. John the evening manager was the nicest man and really looked after us with snacks after the wedding had finished he couldn't do enough for us. The team at the clanard court are one in a million and I can't recommend them enough. It was the most magical day and having a hotel just to me and my guests made me feel like a queen. Thanks so much 4 all you did for us. Xxxx

We loved everything about our wedding at the Clanard Court hotel. The staff were amazing and so accommodating. The food was beautiful and all of our guests raved about how hot everything was coming out and how tasty it was. The smallest details were catered for the girls looking after us beforehand, Claire and Emma were brilliant. The staff on the day were also fantastic. There was a man that had only started working there and he looked after everything along with his colleague and really kept things calm and moving nicely on the morning. There was a girl who looked after my nephew during the meal and his mam says she went out of her way to accommodate for him and all the parents with kids said the same. I couldn't recommend it more highly. The Clanard met all of our expectations and beyond. Thanks to you all.

Thank you to Emma, Claire & John for making our wedding an amazing day & night! All our guests were raving about it! The venue, atmosphere, food, accommodation & residents bar were fantastic!

We look forward to visiting in the future! :)

We had our wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel on 16th September 2017. From the time we booked our wedding the attention received from Claire & Emma was just fantastic. They looked after us so well to ensure our big day went well. Nothing was too much to ask. The Hotel itself was just gorgeous, such a homely feel to it . The rooms were gorgeous. The food was absolutely fantastic - so much of it and was served promptly and was piping hot. Second helpings were just as hot . Evening buffet was gorgeous and the hotel even gave sandwiches in the residents bar once the band had finished. Our guests are still raving about the food, hotel and staff. James the Manger on duty on the day was fantastic. He guided us on the day and made sure everything was to perfection which indeed it was. We could not fault the hotel, staff, food etc in any way. 10 out of 10 all the way. Grainne & Caimin

The clanard court hotel is a fantastic place to have a wedding from the food to the gardens everything is 100%. We had our wedding there two months and could not fault a thing. Emma was our co ordinator and she was fantastic the whole way threw as was Claire the other co ordinator who helped us with anything we need to know if emma was off..As regards our package the ladies were so helpful and let us change things on it to what suited us best. The two girls are excellant. The minute we first viewed the hotel we fell in love with it and knew straight away this was the one..and we were so right..Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and it was all down to staff at the clanard.our guests thought the very same that the hotel was beautiful, food was fabulous and staff were so kind and friendly and not was a trouble.everything was done to perfection. We Would recommend this venue to anyone.The location of hotel is also lovely as its private and away from the town... We would love to do it all again and deal with the clanard court. Claire and Niall.

Long overdue, Claire and Emma are amazing and truly guide you through to the process and will try and assist you with anything even venues for photos or recommend bands etc... nothing is too far out of reach for the gang in the Clanard, if you want it they’ll try their darnedest to pull it off. They are also very patient as myself and my wife are VERY laid back, and had nothing done so we did require some gentle encouragement from the girls, Our wedding was the same weekend as electric picnic they forewarned us of this and allowed us to block book our rooms etc.. The day itself ran like clockwork, James was head of house on the day and could not have done enough for us. He was even able to accommodate some of my very fussy guests. People have not stopped talking about the food and the service on the day. Anyone who is on the fence about booking the Clanard, just jump over do it. You won’t regret it. They will strive to make anything possible, and make you feel like a king and queen for a day. Although I can’t remember the names, all the staff where absolutely phenomenal and we would like to thank everyone sincerely for making our day so special, Ben & Sarah

We had our wedding in August 2017. The staff in the Clanard were extremely helpful with everything in the lead up to our wedding. On the day our guests were well looked after. Everybody was delighted with the food and attention to detail during the service. Those who stayed in the hotel were very happy with their rooms and the breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. Thanks to the Clanard for giving us a great day to remember!

We had our wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel in late Aug. From day one we were blown away by all the staff and how fantastic they were to deal with. Every member of staff looked after us so well. Emma and Claire, the two wedding coordinators were exceptional, and there was never any trouble contacting them. The venue itself is in a great location. The food was phenomenal. The guests commented how good it was and its plentiful portions. The Sticky Toffee pudding was without doubt, the nicest dessert I have ever had. We couldn't have asked for the day to go better. Thanks to all in the Clanard for making the day the what it was :)

My husband and I had our wedding in this hotel in August .i honestly can not describe how perfect this hotel made our day .From start to finish , like any bride I had so many questions ,requests, emails nothing was ever too much . The food was jus outstanding and being a food lover I was so impressed, such aselection ,everything is so hot and just amazing . The grounds and hotel itself is so beautiful,and so personal because it's a house hotel it felt so intimate and no one was separated which can happen with big hotels . The room on the day of our wedding was so romantic I had decorations but the hotel also put such beautiful touches too which really made it so gorgeous. I since have had friends of ours that are engaged looking to get married here since our big day and people are still talking about the hotel . There is not one thing I would change . This is a hidden gem .I highly recommend

The Clanard Court Hotel made our wedding day the best experience of our lives. From start to finish, the staff at any request was extremely professional and unbelievably efficient. Not one complaint from any of the guests or ourselves. The food was the best we have ever had at any weddings we have been privileged to be asked to. I have and will highly recommend The Clanard Court hotel for a wedding or in fact any occasion.

We had our wedding in the Clanard in July and I have to say from start to finish we were fantastically looked after thanks to all the staff for your help while I was planning my wedding. I have to say from the time I set foot into the Clanard to look around I was made to feel very welcome. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and they made my choice of venue for my wedding easy. The wedding was amazing and both James and I had the best day of our lives (apart from when our children were born of course!). Our guests enjoyed every minute of our reception. From the moment they entered the doors of the hotel they were made feel welcome and were given the tastiest of treats along with refreshing cocktails. The children had the best time running around the enclosed garden which was great and meant all parents could relax knowing their children were safe. The hotel reception area was bright, clean and perfect for the guests arrival. The staff kept the area glass and litter free and were on hand to help with any questions and queries. The waiting and bar staff were extremely professional, courteous and friendly. Guests were served promptly and shown respect at all times. They are a credit to the hotel and are definitely what makes your hotel so great. The feedback we received from everyone was exceptional. The reception was laid out fabulously. The flowers and centre pieces on the tables added to its beauty.The food for our reception dinner was out of this world, served hot and promptly. My guests could not believe the quality and taste of the food; and there was plenty of it. They were amazed when trays arrived with seconds! Management and staff on the day made sure we were well looked after. The duty manager did an amazing job and kept us informed throughout the day and looked after us really well ensuring our drinks and food were topped up. The food for our afters was delicious also; even the band enjoyed it. Thank you so very much for making our day so wonderful.

Just got Married at the Clanard court hotel last weekend and couldn't be more satisfied with the service, the staff and the Food. From day one of looking at this hotel the staff were amazing. They are extremely flexible to help make the day what we wanted. Having wedding co-ordinators Claire and Emma and a great events manager James and events team made the day so relaxing and stress free for us knowing the hotel had everything in place. The food was amazing, everyone couldn't stop complimenting the food on the day and the bbq the next day. Would highly recommend the clanard as a wedding venue . We had an amazing day and wouldn't change any of it. Massive thanks to all the staff at the Hotel.

We had our wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel in July 2017. From day one the wedding team, Emma and Claire, were unbelievably helpful and accommodating. In the lead up to our big day the sales team checked in on us often to make sure everything was going according to plan and always kept us informed on what needed doing. On the day itself we honestly couldn’t have asked for better. We wish that we knew everybody’s names to thank them individually. A number of family members and guests had allergies and intolerances and they were all provided for so well, something that isn’t always taken as a given in hotels and restaurants. We would like to thank the hotel especially for this. The food was beautiful and very well presented. The guests were talking about it for weeks afterwards. The day ran so smoothly and the managers James and Liam ensured that we were kept informed of the different stages. From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank the entire team in the Clanard Court, both the front of house and those working behind the scenes that we didn’t get to thank personally. We will always remember our day fondly and owe much of that to the hotel.

After attending a family wedding here over 10 years ago this was the first place we thought of when booking our own. We made an appointment to meet with Emma and were so impressed we picked a date and booked it on the spot. It's a beautiful hotel but the main selling point for me was the private gardens, they're stunning and we were lucky to have great weather the day we married so we made full use of them for photos and the few kids that attended had plenty of room to run around. They really do go above and beyond from start to finish. We held a civil ceremony in the hotel, the room and decor were beautiful. The food and service were amazing, everyone loved it. They happily made any meal the kids asked for and helped arrange for a child minder to take the younger ones off to a playroom so the adults could relax during the meal. I can't compliment the staff enough, Claire and Emma were a godsend during the planning nothing is too much for them. James was so on top of every little detail on the day even running back to my room for me and grabbing the rings after remindning me i'd forgotten them! The barmen are great, we stayed a second night and the lads in the bar had us well looked after, even sending out food on the house. We couldn't recommend this venue enough. It really is the ideal place to hold your wedding, they make sure its a day you'll never forget. I'd love to go back and do it all again :)

We had the pleasure of having our civil ceremony and wedding reception at the Clanard Court Hotel on the 16th June 2017. I cannot express enough how happy we both were with how everything went on the day, not to mention the professionalism and help which we received from the wedding coordinators with our preparations beforehand which, as a bride to be, made my job in preparing everything a lot easier. The hotel itself was the perfect setting for our wedding, the setting for our civil ceremony was set up beautifully as was the function room for our reception. James, our co-ordinator for the day was on hand at every aspect to ensure that everything ran according to plan and everything went so smoothly, I had nothing to worry about! All staff, down to reception, bar tenders, waiters etc. were extremely professional, easy to deal with and very courteous. The food was fabulous, every course was delivered on time and extremely quickly so that no table was waiting too much longer than another. There was nothing I could fault about the Clanard on my special day and I would highly recommend it for anyone thinking of getting married here.

Can’t say enough about the Clanard Court Hotel. From the day we went to view the hotel as a possible wedding venue, we were met with a warm and friendly welcome from every staff member that we had dealings with. From then on, there was no problem too big or too small for the staff to deal with. Everytime we went down we were made feel like it was our wedding day already and it was as if the staff were genuinely excited to be part of our day. Our wedding day itself went off without a hitch all down to the staff. No matter what we asked of them it was done straight away and without hesitation or question. The food was spectacular. The venue was exactly how it was sold to us if not better and if we were to do it all again we would have no shadow of a doubt in choosing The Clanard Court Hotel as our venue. The gardens that we were encouraged to use were fabulously picturesque and made for great photo opportunities. Not only did we find every aspect of our 2 day celebration exemplary, all of our guests could not speak more highly of the Hotel.

From the minute we got engaged I knew I wanted our reception in the Clanard. We came home from Australia and made an appointment with Emma. Just meeting with Emma and then Claire we knew this was the place for us. They both made planning from Australia a breeze and amazing to work with, nothing was an issue and gave great advice. Our day went off without a hitch and we can't thank them enough. James dealt with us on the day and he was brilliant. Everything from the staff to the food was amazing. All our guests still rave about the day and their stay at the Clanard court hotel. I can't recommend Claire, Emma and team highly enough

We had an amazing day st the Clanard Court Hotel for our Wedding in May. The wedding co-ordinators were so helpful with everything in the run up to our wedding. They made the planning such a breeze. On the day, management and staff couldn’t do enough for us. The service and food was outstanding. Highly recommend The Clanard Court again

The Clanard Court Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding with the unique landscape filled with lamas and lambs alike. It's located close enough to Athy town to use local vendors but far enough away so thete is scenery, space and privacy ( most local vendors offer 10% discounts for booking at the Clanard. Avrils Flowers we're unbelievable!!! ) From day one, Emma and Claire and the entire team were amazing. No question was ignored and a panic attack at 8:30 at night was met with a comforting phone call and reassurance that the team were there for us. The big day arrived and we had no worries at all that the wedding team would deliver anything less than perfection. Our guests called the amazing ceremony room and the atmosphere that James and his amazing team set an etherial experience. The food was sensational and the entire day was amazing. Our guest were amazed not only by the quality of the food but at the offer of seconds (and thirds in some instances). Myself and my new husband were so well looked after and James did everything to ensure our day was as stress free and relaxing as possible which it was. The personal touch the Clanard offered us remains to this day unmatched at any other hotel or venue I've attended and we could not thank the amazing staff enough for the fabulous day they gave us.

We would like to thank the staff of the Clanard Court who looked after us and our guests so well and took all of the difficulty out of organising our wedding. From the moment we had the tour by Geraldine we knew that we wanted to get married there. Emma and Claire were fantastic to deal with throughtout the planning stages and during the day, James never left our side and was very attentive to all of our needs. All of our guests commented on the quality of the food and the standard of the service so thanks so much for making a great day amazing!!

I can honestly only say amazing things about Clanard Court Hotel. Our experience from start to finish was so pleasant and our wedding day just perfect!! All of the staff are so professional and we felt so relaxed knowing they would take care of everything!! The quality they offer was worlds apart when I compared it to other venues and so many of our guests commented on this and especially on the food which was just beautiful!! I could not recommend this venue more! They know exactly what they are doing leaving you with nothing to worry about except enjoying your special day!!

This hotel is absolutely fantastic. Both myself and my wife have countlessly referred to how amazing a venue the Clanard Court was for our wedding and we have always looked back with the fondest of memories at how everything was handled for our day. The staff have such an eye for detail and are simply brilliant at putting your mind at ease about how everything will run! That kind of peace of mind is really priceless when it comes to your wedding day and this was the reputation that preceded the Clanard Court when we started researching venues. The food is spectacular, we were really impressed with the huge range on the menu to begin with and numerous guests commented about the quality of the food at our wedding which is great to hear. In short, this is the kind of venue I would gladly recommend with complete confidence to anyone who has yet to decide on the venue for their special day. You will certainly not be disappointed and will be able to look back at your wedding without regretting a thing! These guys will take care of you!

Fabulous. From the wedding showcase we attended to 'The Day' the Clanard Court Hotel and their team were brilliant. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous and beautifully presented always but especially on our wedding day. All the pretty touches and generous reception were really enjoyed by everyone. Family and friends were hugely complimentary and impressed by the hotel. Our day went really smoothly, service at dinner was amazingly efficient with great food. As we had our children, nieces and nephews attending there is usually some pressure when kids are involved but the staff were so attentive and helpful it made it really easy for us. The gardens are perfect for everyone to stretch their legs and the little ones to run off some energy, we were lucky to get good weather so we made good use of the gardens. They are enclosed too which is great if like us you have kids attending, you can relax knowing they are safe to run around. Perfect for photos also, no need to go elsewhere for photos which allowed us more time to enjoy the day with our guests. The management and staff at the Clanard Court Hotel are the icing on the cake on such a big day, from Mary congratulating us when we arrived, Liam our wedding coordinator, always within reach throughout the day & on top of everything. The service staff were amazingly attentive, from dressing the room so beautifully to dinner service and always friendly, helpful and chatty. John looked after us into the small hours, pulling out the sandwiches just when they were needed. The bridal suite is fabulous with really beautiful little touches added. We had a great day in a great hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone, you will not be disappointed.

On the 15/04/17 we had our amazing wedding in the Clanard court hotel in Athy, from the very first time we stepped into the Clanard we knew we had chosen an amazing venue for our wedding. Planning a wedding can usually be so stressful but with claire & Emma everything was made so simple nothing too big or small was an issue and they made you feel so confident that everything would go to plan. The day of our wedding was pure bliss, I stayed the night before and had the most relaxing night & made to feel so special everybody knew I was the bride to be and they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The next morning I had an amazing breakfast to set me up for the day ahead. Hazel at reception was so helpful during the morning helping me with all the little bits that needed to be done. From the ceremony to reception everything went like a dream, I knew that had everything under control and was able to get on with enjoying our day with not a worry in the world. The meal was out of this world and all the guests very extremely complimentary on the venue & food which is so important. I could go on and on about this amazing venue but I'd be here all day, all I can say to finish it off is to say anybody getting married should choose the Clanard and I guarantee they won't be disappointed. A very had bride & groom Sharon & Alan 15/04/17

Well what can we say! 5 stars just simply is not enough for this venue. I don't know where to begin and hope I don't miss anything but from start to finish the Clanard Court has been nothing but amazing to us. We got married here on March 25th 2017 and it was out of this world. When we first went to check it out we met with Emma, wedding co-ordinator, and she was so lovely and nice. We communicated well over the 20 months or so and she was very responsive and beyond helpful, nothing was a bother for her. Everything we asked and queried was no hassle to her at all which made it so much easier for us when we weren't sure ourselves what we were doing. Then on our menu taster night we got to meet James and he was so lovely too. He gave each couple plenty of attention and was very reassuring. On the approach to the big day we just didn't have any worries or cause for concern. We had an on site civil ceremony and even when I arrived, and I won't lie but I was a little emotional, James was there to reassure me again. Our guests loved it too and a lot of them have since asked us "where did you find this place!!" Because it was so nice. The food on the day was delicious, the breakfast, everything. We stayed an extra night and the Sunday was Mother's Day. It was fantastic and all the staff from management to bar staff and housekeeping to waiting staff were all so friendly and nice, not to mention John from the bar :) We cannot recommend Emma and James in the Clanard Court Hotel highly enough! You won't be let down!! There was no chance we'd have had our wedding anywhere else!!! Thanks again guys, Tracey & Rory

Could not thank the Clanard court hotel enough for making our special day the most relaxed and enjoyable day ever , the staff couldn't of helped us any more than what they did on the day, we are so happy we picked this hotel, it's stunning and on stunning grounds. The food is delicious and everyone complimented the food/hotel on the day. We stayed and had second day celebrations and rented out a small function room, it was so ideal, we also got some finger food for that day which was great, I have not one bad thing to say about this hotel highly recommend it. Can't wait to come back for our first year anniversary. Kind regards Emer & Tadhg.

Great value. Went out of their way to make the preparations as easy as possible and to provide us with whatever we needed no matter how small or big the request. They weren't at all demanding like many venues can be and everything was done with our wishes to the forefront. The day itself was perfect without a single issue needing our attention.

Fantastic hotel with friendly, helpful and professional staff.

From start to finish the Clanard Court staff were excellent in all our dealings with them. The food and service on the day could not have been better. We were very happy with the service and attention that we got and we would definitely recommend this hotel to any couple planning a wedding. As well as great service, the hotel has lovely gardens and outdoor spaces, perfect for wedding photos. We are looking forward to our complimentary first anniversary stay there!

Our day from start to finish was fantastic, the management and staff looking after our guests while we had photographs done, service throughout the meal topping up on wine, making sure specific meals were serviced to the individual guests with dietary requirements, enough staff serving food and drink, allowing enough time between each course, lighting within ballroom throughout the day, providing plenty evening food for our guests

I found the wedding co-ordinator and hotel staff to be very professional, helpful and accommodating to my wedding requirements. The food and management of the wedding day were top class and I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as a wedding venue. Most of my guests commented on how good the food was and how impressed they were with the hotel in general. I was very happy with the whole experience.

To all the team at the Clanard Court Hotel thank you so much for you excellent service and all your help on our wedding day. The Clanard court was the first wedding venue we visited and we fell in love with it from the start. We went to view others in preparation for our wedding but no other venue came close. The staff from that first meeting right up to the wedding day were very helpful and professional. As many couples would have we had plenty of questions and special requests which were all dealt with very easily by wedding co-coordinators Claire and Emma. On the day we had forgotten one or two items for our themed tables but the manager James had arranged for a staff member to run out and collect the items we forgot which was so helpful. Throughout the day and evening the team were available to help with any requests we had. The food at a wedding is so important and the team at the Clanard Court did an excellent job on our wedding along with the food the following morning. Many of the compliments we got from our guests were on how well the day went and how good the food was. We were so happy with it ourselves and simply couldn't of done it without the fantastic team at the Clanard Court Hotel. We couldn't recommend them highly enough and we want to thank them once again for helping make our wedding day so memorable and special.

In one simple sentence - Our dream came true! From the moment we walked into the Clanard Court on our first viewing, we fell in love. The staff at the hotel are exceptional, the attention to detail and personal touches are phenomenal. Both the build up to the day, and the day itself was faultless. Both wedding co-ordinators Claire & Emma were fantastic and answered any questions or concerns we had and had brilliant advice and tips to offer. The venue itself is stunning, its comfortable yet elegant, homely yet exquisite and best of all, family friendly. The day itself was magical, and we wouldnt change one single thing. The civil ceremony was intimate and candle lit, each of our guests commented on the fabulous room we had organised for our marriage ceremony. Each and every staff member on the day added to the occasion - and were absolutely wonderful with our three children. James deserves a special mention, the manager on the day, who made a few simple suggestions on the day which blew us away, the room layout for the meal was spectacular and his thoughtfulness towards our children was genuinely touching. The food, the drink, the service, the bedrooms - second to none. And we did it all again the following night with a BBQ night. Each and everyone of our guests took the time to thank us for such a fantastic weekend, from check in to check out everyone was beaming. We are both proud and honoured to have held our wedding at the Clanard Court Hotel, we are extremely grateful that we had the happiest day of our lives and would do it all again tomorrow - exactly the same way! Richie & Emma Desay

We had the pleasure of having our wedding here in September 2016. Before arranging to meet with the hotel we read all the reviews about the friendly staff and the great food at this hotel, these reviews are 100% correct. The first evening that we met with the hotel we were instantly made feel welcome and comfortable. This was important for us as some venues were a little awkward dealing with two brides and the same sex wedding. After we made the decision to book this venue we had the pleasure of dealing with Claire one of the wedding co-ordinators. Claire was always on hand to anwser any questions we had and was great for giving us some tips/ideas for our big day. On the day of the wedding we could not have been looked after any better. Everything ran smoothly and any last minute requests were no problem. For us we loved everything about this venue. The staff being so friendly and helpful makes the day that little bit more relaxing as you know you're in safe hands. After the wedding our guests all commented on how great the food was and the most common comment about the day was "Jesus the staff couldn't do enough for you, some spot"! Our photographer was also impressed with the lovely garden and the alpacas for some great photos. We would highly recommend booking this venue for your big day. You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic hotel - we fell in love with it the first time we visited. Staff were so friendly and the food was devine. Emma & Claire looked after us every single step of the way, and helped us out in every way we needed. The Wedding Day went by without a flaw. Staff were efficient and food was spectacular. Some of our guests were surprised that even for a big wedding that the standard of food didn't drop - and that's not something you'll always hear! James was the Manager on duty for our Wedding and he was great - great personality and there to make sure your wedding is better than you could have even hoped. We had an amazing day and we look forward to calling in again in the future. We would recommend The Clanard Court Hotel to friends and family in the future.

The day was fantastic and everything was perfect, the staff are very friendly and helpful and tge hotel itself is just fabulous.

I would highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to anyone who wants to find their perfect wedding venue.

Fantastic venue, staff are amazing! A highly professional and friendly atmosphere and service. Truly memorable and relaxed atmosphere for all the guests.

We got married here on 6th Aug, and from the day we booked with Geraldine at the wedding fair to the day itself nothing was ever too much trouble. Claire was always on hand and was very helpful with any queries we had. Mary & Liam gave us great advise at our menu tasting which we really appreciated. The food on the day was top class and the staff were fantastic. We were lucky enough to be able to get married outside in the beautiful gardens. It was the best day of our lives. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Clanard Court to anyone, the venue is outstanding and the staff are so friendly. A big thank you to all the staff for making our day so special.

What a perfect experience we had. Everything was a complete pleasure. No job too big or small. No stone left unturned. Every little detail seen to. A complete joy to deal with all the staff from the planning right through to the day itself. So proud to hear all our guests speak about how well they were treated and taken care of, especially as many of them had travelled big distances. Geraldine & I will never be able to thank you enough and I could honestly say I would not hesitate to encourage any other couple to book "Team Clanard" Thank you, each of you again and again. You deserve to be recognised for what you do. Good luck and continued success.

We had our wedding in the Clanard in July 2016 and it was absolutely perfect! From the beginning of the planning process right the way through to the big day and beyond the staff were incredibly helpful and professional. Leading up to the wedding everybody was warning me to be prepared for something to go wrong but I can honestly say that nothing did, everything was absolutely perfect and the credit has to go to the hard-working staff who looked after us on the day. I would recommend the Clanard Court Hotel without a single hesitation, and I look forward to returning many times in the future!

We were guests at a wedding here in July and we had an amazing time. From the time we arrived and checked in till the time we left the next day, everyone was so helpful and friendly.

This Hotel and the staff were fantanstic. The staff were very helpful and no matter what you asked for their was never an issue. On the day of the wedding they made sure everything was perfect from arrival to finish. We had a 2 year old daughter and whenever we needed something for her it was got straight away without any questions. They really make you feel at home. we stayed for two nights and the service the second night was just as good as the first. the food was amazing and the portion size wasnt too little.

I honestly cannot fault the hotel or any part of the service we received, everything was amazing. All of the staff from the wedding planners Emma & Claire to the waiters and waitresses in the function room were so professional and friendly all of the time. Nothing was too much trouble especially in the planning stages, every question i had was answered promptly and every request was catered to. I had lots of drop outs the day before my wedding and had to rearrange the table plan and Emma did this all with me with ease. They really helped take the stress out of it. Food was amazing and excellent value for money, everyone commented on the food about how nice it was and plenty of it. The Clanard packages are excellent as they inlcude everything you need and you don't have to worry about hidden extras, it's all listed in the package details. Lobby, bar area, toilets, etc are all spotlessly clean and well attended to. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for your big day.

We got married in the Clanard court in May 2016 and I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. It was the first and only hotel we went to look at and fell in love straight away. We booked the hotel in May 2014 and from the very first meeting we knew we would be well looked after. Claire was outstanding on the lead up to our big day and took all of our queries seriously no matter how small or silly they were. On the day itself we had James looking after us who made the day run so smoothly and we felt like royalty from the minute we arrived. Everyone had such good things to say about the food it was gorgeous and the room was beautiful. From when we arrived to the hotel right up until we went to bed and even the following day we really felt so important. We cannot wait to return to the hotel again so thank you so much for making our day as special as it was.

We got married in the clanard at the end of February 2016, and loved every second of it. We knew that gay marriage was on everyone's tongue towards the referendum, and although we had met with other hotels, Claire and Emma were the first to treat us like any other couple instead of a gay couple. This to us was hugely important. Every moment of the day was scripted out, and we even had the hotel manager coordinating our day! The staff were so helpful and professional at all times. When a few of us were still up at 4am in the residence bar, the night chef had taken upon himself to make us a few platters of sandwiches! Also all the rooms are on the complete other side of the hotel, away from the function rooms, which means you can party till all hours and your sleeping guests won't know! We frequent the clanard at least once a month for a Sunday roast. The staff recognise us, remember our names, these are The important things. Honestly, I'd get married again tomorrow, and would be quite happy In a loop. It was the best day of our lives, and the team in the clanard made it magical and so special. I know how hard it is choosing the right hotel for your wedding, we've been there, been to the wedding shows, met with umpteen hotel wedding coordinators. Just make the clanard the top of your list. You won't regret it.

I just wanted to post a quick review about our wedding day in the Clanard Court but didn't know exactly what to say so we have decided the best review we could post would be to post the letter that we sent to the Clanard Court Staff after our wedding day. Dear Claire & Liam Could you please pass on the below message and thanks to your entire staff. Hi Guys, (CLANARD COURT STAFF) I do not know if you remember myself Mark and my new husband Chris but we got married in the Hotel on Friday the 12th of Feb 2016. We both just wanted to send an open letter of thanks to you guys. I must say that since the wedding we have had nothing but the most amazing compliments from not just a few guests but every guest we have spoken too about the hotel and the wonderful staff working there. Everyone one of you guys were so polite and courteous to our guests and this played such a big part in making our wedding day so amazing for us and all our guests. I can not even begin to thank each and everyone of you for your amazing work on the day. I can honestly say that because of you guys and everything you did for us both on our wedding, we had THE BEST DAY OF OUR LIVES EVER. I know that this can sound very clichéd but it actually was so true so thanks so so much everyone of you ..... You have done yourselves and the Hotel so so proud and I can honestly say that all of our guest will be recommending The Clanard Court to everyone. WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL. P.S. - Claire could I also just re iterate our sincere graduate to yourself, Geraldine and the wonderful Liam for all the work you guys put into arranging our very special day. We will be forever grateful to you and the staff of the Clanard Court. Again THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts Mark & Chris 7th April 2016

Mark and Chris, Thank you so much for such a heartfelt and sincere review. It means a lot to receive your comments and we can tell by the tone of your review just how impressed you both were with the hospitality and service you received on your special day. We don't mind clichés especially if it means that we have done our bit to give you guys "The Best Day of your life". For us, providing warm and sincere service comes naturally, its what our team believe in and we always like to treat every guest attending a wedding as we would treat them if they were a guest in our own home. So thanks for noticing and thanks for sharing your review. It was a pleasure looking after you both. From the start you really knew what you wanted, to be honest, you did all the work we just had to facilitate it.

Wishing you both a life of luck, love and happiness, you deserve it and once again thanks for putting your faith in The Clanard Court, were thrilled that it was the right choice for you.

From the moment we stepped into The Clanard Court Hotel, we knew it was the perfect venue for our winter wedding. There was such a warm, friendly atmosphere& immediately we were made to feel at home. From the initial meeting to the wedding day itself everything was planned perfectly and Emma was on hand to answer all our questions and no task was too big. The hotel catered for all our needs and looked after all our guests both coming up to the big day and on the wedding day itself. The staff at Clandard Court are both friendly, professional and made us all feel so welcome. Our wedding was a Chirstmas wedding and the hotel was decorated beautifully and elegantly which helped when getting our photographs taken. Many of our guests commented on how wonderful the staff were, how beautiful the hotel was& how amazing the food was. I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding. Both the venue and staff helped to make our day magical.

We had the pleasure of having our wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel on the 9th of October 2015. ? It was the most enjoyable day and lived up to all our expectations. From the time that we first went to view the venue until our wedding day we found all the staff at the hotel professional, friendly and accommodating. No request was too much trouble. ? At the menu tasting a few weeks prior to the wedding the food was exceptional and there was plenty of very knowledgeable staff at hand to deal with any queries or requirements that we had. And also to advise us what wine would best accompany our food choices. The menu was full and varied and each dish nicer than the last. ? I cannot thank our wedding co-ordinator Geraldine enough, she was always at the end of the phone with any queries we may have. She was also great in an advisory role making sure we had all the I's dotted and the T's crossed especially in the few days prior to the wedding.? The venue itself is very impressive with the extensive high ceilings and very comfortable seating in the lobby. The grounds are beautiful and we were able to take some fabulous photographs at the hotel.? All of the feedback that we got from our guest has been positive and all said that it was a great wedding. They all commented on how friendly the staff were and that the food was top notch. I cannot recommend the Clanard Court Hotel enough. Everybody envolved made our day very special. If any couple is considering this venue we would have no hesitation in saying go for it! Caroline and Eddie Haslam.

Caroline and Eddie, Thank you so much for sharing your experience. What a lovely heartfelt review. Needless to say were delighted that everything went so well for you. Were thrilled that you found the food and wine to be so good. The pan fried cod you went for was a lovely option for main course and it really went down a treat with all your guests. We feel that the menu tastings are a great opportunity to put your mind at ease and ensure that you are 100% happy with your choices before the big day. Thanks for trusting us on the wine choices, were delighted they worked well for you. Geraldine enjoyed her dealings with you in the run up to your big day and passes on her best wishes. Once again thank you for choosing us to host your special day, thank you for your high praise and we look forward to welcoming you back over the coming years. Wishing you both a wonderful life together. Best Wishes from The Clanard Court Team.

We had our wedding in the Clanard on the 3rd of October 2015 we have to say was the best day of our lives thanks to all the staff at the hotel especially Brian and Geraldine. The food was exceptional and the running of the whole day. All of our guests had only good things to say about every aspect of the day. I would 100% recommend the Clanard for service and friendly staff and helping me relax on the most nerve racking day of my life, they made me feel at ease. Thank you all at the Clanard and we will definitely be back for dining experiences X

Andrea and Dwayne, Thank you for your lovely review. Were thrilled to have been a part of "The Best Day of your Life", for us it doesn't get much better than that. Its great to hear it all went so well, you certainly were not nervous once proceedings got underway. It was lovely to have the ceremony in the hotel and relax with your family and friends immediately. Everyone experiences a little bit of nervousness on the day, its healthy and its expected but were delighted that we helped to make you feel at ease. Thank you so much for choosing us and we look forward to welcoming you both back to our new Bistro for many more wonderful dining experiences. Wishing you both a life filled with luck love and happiness. Kindest Regards - The Clanard Court Team

Absolutely fantastic.? We loved the hotel from the minute we stepped inside it and we booked it as our venue at our first appointment with Tara. I did google to see if I could find any bad reviews and I couldn't find one. Every review I found was singing praises about the staff, the food, and the venue itself.? The decor in the reception area is fantastic, and when the function room is all kitted out in all its glory it is absolutely beautiful. ? The wedding team were very helpful in putting together the perfect package for myself and Joe. We were able to add things in and take things out of the packages to suit both our preferences and budget, which was great.? On the day of the wedding everything was perfect. The food and drinks in the reception were gorgeous and plentiful. The meal was amazing. Every single person at the wedding was complimenting the food and I got so many people saying things such as.... "you know at weddings the food isn't always great because they are serving so many people at once, well this was fantastic, it was all steaming hot and everything arrived to the tables at the same time". We were so happy to be getting all this great feedback. The sticky toffee pudding even got a mention or two in our guest book.? Brian was looking after us on the day and he did a great job. Everything ran smoothly without a hitch... even when we realised we had forgotten the ipod with our music on it, Brian bought the song we needed on his own ipod. Thanks a mill for that Brian!!? We would highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to anyone planning a wedding. The most important thing to us when venue hunting was that it is classy and elegant but also modern and fun. Some other hotels are classy but give off the impression that fun is frowned upon, or they are modern but don't have the same elegance. The Clanard Court Hotel has this balance perfectly right!!? Thank you to Brian and all of the staff once again.? Alison and Joe?

Alison and Joe, Thank you both for your lovely review, Classy and Elegant - Modern and Fun - We really like that summary and might just repeat those lines in the future as I think they really sum up what were about. Thanks, we couldn't have said it better if we tried. Were delighted that you were unable to find any negative reviews with your google search. We pride ourselves in going that extra mile and pulling out all stops when it comes to hospitality and customer service and thankfully our reviews are very positive as a result. Its great that you found the packages very flexible, needless to say packages are there to give a guide and help people plan but we like people to put their own twist and personality into their wedding day as well hence nothing is set in stone. You both added your own bit of magic with your roaming magician on arrival - What a lovely touch!! Brian and all the team were thrilled with your feedback it doesn't go unnoticed and is greatly appreciated. Once again thank you for choosing us, were thrilled we got the balance right and we look forward to welcoming you both back in the future. Best Wishes from all The Clanard Team.

We got married on 18th September 2015 and had our reception in the Clanard Court. ? I cannot rate them highly enough. Everything was perfect on the day. We only finalized our menu and numbers on the last week, they were so laid back and nothing was a problem. The day ran so smoothly, we were a bit late back to the reception as our photos took a bit longer than expected. They pushed back the dinner call by half an hour and it was no problem at all. ? In fact the day ran so smoothly that the only time I spoke to any of the hotel staff on the day was when we were getting organized to do the speeches. They took care of everything and we had nothing to do only enjoy the day. All of our guests really enjoyed the day and found it very relaxing and the atmosphere was very laid back and homely. They were raving about the food and the staff, how good it was and how everyone was offered a second helping of everything. Many said it was the best wedding meal they had ever gotten! The food was served to each table very quickly and efficiently. The staff are excellent. If you are considering a venue in Kildare, then I urge you to book the Clanard Court. I have been to a lot of weddings the past couple of years and the Clanard Court will not be beaten on the quality of the service and staff, the quality of the wedding meal, the ease of organizing everything or the value for money. I know it is a big decision to chose a venue, as its such a big day and such a big outlay, but you will not be disappointed if you chose the Clanard Court.

Aoife and Stephen, Thank you so much for your lovely review. It means a lot to us that you notice the little things that help to create a special day. We appreciate how important your wedding day is and we know what we have to do in order to get it 100% right. Very often its the little things like letting the day flow your way and stepping back to allow things evolve naturally that make the difference. We understood on the day that you might have had delays considering you were stopping off in Glendalough for wedding photos. Lets just say your guests were in safe hands and enjoyed the arrival reception and surroundings before being called for dinner. Thank you for putting your faith in us. We know that you had many choices of venue between Wicklow and Kildare and we are thrilled that we were the venue of choice. Wishing you both a life full of happiness and we look forward to welcoming you both back over the coming years. Kindest Regards - The Clanard Court Team

We had our wedding reception at Clanard court hotel on 21st August 2015. Brian was the manager on the day and he could not have done anymore for us.. ( we didn't get a group photo at church and he arranged to have it done in the garden, an extra person showed up, he accommodated them without fuss) He truly has his eye on the job from start to finish, truly professional in every detail. All staff at The Clanard Court Hotel deserve real praise as they are extremely welcoming, warm and very professional in the service they deliver. Special mention to both Johns also, fantastic men with great warmth and a fantastic welcome always. It has the feeling of a very well run team no matter who you deal with. The wedding coordinators are really easy to work with, they did an amazing job, are very organised and nothing is too much trouble. Geraldine, Emma and Claire !! They were a huge support throughout and make things stress free. We had a fantastic day, food was fantastic and served promptly, great feedback from all guests. Again something that is rare but the vegetarians were seriously impressed also and really delighted with the food in the day. Wine also was reported as very good. We partied until the small hours and everyone of the 170 guests who attended said they would return to the Clanard Court Hotel as they had enjoyed the day so much. We were blessed with the weather and took full advantage of the secluded garden which was a huge asset to the party for the day. Anyone considering Clanard Court Hotel should go for a look, they will not be disappointed. Myself and Dan would highly recommend this hotel for your wedding reception without any hesitation.

Hi Vanessa and Dan. Thanks for the lovely review and your kind words. Brian, our two Johns, Ger, Emma and Claire are all chuffed with the high praise. They truly are a great team. We have a great motto here "Teamwork makes the Dreamwork" We all row in together and do our best to pull out all stops and ensure that everything goes off smooth on the day, preparation begins at 4am on the morning proceeding the wedding when our night porters are getting the ballroom organised and we don't stop till John has served our last guest in the residents bar - with a smile and a bit of banter !! Our team really enjoyed looking after you and your guests, they could sense the relaxation, fun and festivity throughout the day which is lovely to be a part of. You were truly blessed with the weather, I bet the photos turned out great. Please do share some with us. We look forward to seeing you both again next August for your first anniversary stay but in the meantime if your passing by please do drop in and say hi. Best wishes. Mary and Team

If hotels were rated more than 5 stars then The Clanard Court would be well up there, this hotel is pure amazing and relaxing. My 1st time to the hotel was for a friends wedding in June of 2012 and then another friend July 2012 & i couldn't fault the service or manner of staff. On both occasions day ran so smooth staff were pleasant, helpful & food was to die for. Now i know people often say oh hotels go out for weddings if normal day it wouldn't be as relaxed or friendly well i can tell you The management & Staff in The Clanard Court are friendly & helpful all year around whether you there for relaxing night away, a meal, few drinks or an occasion. The service and politeness is 100% all year around 24/7. It was in this hotel that my husband decided he wanted to save for a ring & propose, after he popped the question New years eve 2012 we were both excited to visit the Clanard Court as soon as possibly to see for our wedding & it didn't disappoint that we booked in February 2013 two and half years before our wedding. Those 2 & half years flew in & the wedding team Nicola, Emma & Geraldine were always only a call or email away for any queries we had. Think poor Martina was sick of us calling but as ever she was so pleasant & friendly always asking how our plans were going anytime we called or went out for a meal. Leading up to the wedding the hotel couldn't do enough for us that I was so calm that i never had one worry about the hotel. They are always on the ball - the night before the wedding i sent an email about 10pm to request a stool for a guest to prop leg up as they had only broken it & needed to keep it raised & there was no problem it was all done. The room & lobby was set up day went so calm that all my guests said it was the most relaxing wedding they ever attended. even if i ever won lotto & could afford to jet off and do my wedding all over again i'd still pick the Clanard Court because not only are you getting your venue, your getting a wonderful team of people who go above & beyond to make your day one you will remember for a long time.

Hi Carol, Thanks for your lovely review and your kind words. Were just thrilled to hear that yourself and Shane had such an amazing day with us in August and delighted to have been involved with the preparations in the run up to the wedding. We completely understand the amount of work that you and your family put in behind the scenes to make the day such a special and memorable occasion. It takes a lot of planning and a lot of organisation to get it just right. For us its second nature, we know what we have to do in order to make a difference aesthetically and create the WOW factor but really its all about hospitality and going that extra mile to ensure that each and every guest feels relaxed, at home and at ease. Yourself and Shane were such pleasure to deal with, we enjoyed being a part of the festivities. Looking forward to welcoming you both in the years ahead and spoiling you on your first anniversary. Best Wishes, Geraldine Emma and The Clanard Court Team.

We had our wedding reception at Clanard Court hotel on the 31st of July. The Clanard Court was an excellent venue. The hotel, the food and especially the staff were wonderful in every way. We could not have asked for anything more for our wedding! Claire and all of the staff at the hotel were incredibly helpful. We would highly recommend this hotel and would like to thank Claire and all of the staff for making our day so wonderful!!

We got married in the Clanard Court hotel on Friday the 24th of July... we picked the Clanard hotel because we were having a civil ceremony and wanted an outdoor wedding and when we saw the garden in the hotel we were blown away... it was absolutely beautiful... I arrived down with my family on Thursday the 24th, I myself have two children so it was very important to us that it was a very family wedding with a lot of focus on the children... the meal on the eve of the wedding was amazing, the kids were treated like royalty... Nothing was an issue for the hotel and when the day finally came we got our dream wedding and at 3pm we were married in the garden, it was a dream come true. The staff went above and beyond to look after us for the whole weekend. Everyone that attended the wedding said it was probably one of the best they had ever been to. My only regret now is that its over, I would do it all again tomorrow and would recommend the Clanard Court to anyone who is looking for their dreams to come true... Bernice & Ken

We could not be happier with the service we received from the Clanard Court. We were looked after from our very first meeting to the very end. No request was too big, they went over and above to provide us with a wonderful day. The day itself was completely stress free and our guests were very impressed. They are still talking about the quality of the food and how much they enjoyed our wedding. The guests who stayed over had nothing but praise for their experience. We had fabulous photos taken in the hotel gardens which were manicured and cared for to the very last. I think the greatest compliment (and biggest vote of confidence) we can give the Clanard Court, is that my sister has booked her wedding here next year!

I had my wedding this year in the Clanard Court Hotel in July this year.We had the whole hotel to ourselves & our guests on our Wedding Day, because they assure you on booking of only one wedding a day. Leading up to the day everybody was so helpful from reception to the wedding co- ordinator (suzanne) to any manager I dealt with. The rooms were large and definitley of 4 star standard. I wanted to bring the bridal suite bed home with me as it was so hard to get out of in the morning. The lobby is magnificent and gives you that wow factor on arrival, none of my guests had been at the hotel before as it was only open a year and a bit.They were amazed and still are talking about the place. I took all my photos in the hotel gardens which are adjacent to the function room. The gardens were full of flowers and a seating area and my photographer loved it. We also had use of the garden all day to ourselves, which was great because it ended up to be one of the hottest days of the year. [b]To get to the meal, it surpassed my expectations. For one I could'nt eat it all as I was afraid my dress was going to burst as there was just so much on my plate. Then they came around with second portions of the potatoes then vegetables and then the meat - My chief bridesmaid boyfriend who normally when you invite to dinner would eat his own and then whatever else is left and then still would be starving after - he could'nt move he was stuffed! There was not one complaint from any of my guests and the thing that got mentioned to me most after the wedding was the service and how the staff were so relaxed and helpful. I personally would recommend having your wedding at the Clanard Court Hotel as nothing is too much for them - even any last minute decisions like (deciding on chair covers within 38 hours of the wedding day) A few words I would use to describe the hotel is: Relaxing, Private, Good Value for Money, Excellent staff I for one would like to thank all the staff for the most memorable day of our lives.

Myself and John celebrated our big day in The Clanard Court Hotel in June of this year. We had such an amazing day and it really came down to the organisation that went into the day by all the staff.? We are currently living in Australia and I had thought that organising was going to be nightmare from so far away but when I first contacted the Clanard they were so helpful and on hand. We were home in the August of 2014 and although The Clanard Court hold specific days for menu tasting (which was not when we were home) Claire very kindly arranged an evening for us to do the menu tasting (even though she was on holidays at the time). The chef John, brought out each meal to us himself recommended what wine would go with what course and also answered any questions we had to ask. He is such a nice man and couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. With the time difference between Perth and Ireland it was quite tricky to actually talk to Claire over the phone so all the organising was simply done by email, which went so smoothly. When we arrived home we went for our second visit to the Hotel where we met Claire for the first time. She was lovely! The morning of the wedding there was a few guest blunners, I had 2 people drop out from dinner and had to change a few seating arrangements around last minute. I rang The Clanard from my wedding car and the girls were so on hand with no issues from my last minute changes. The food was amazing on the day, they catered for absolutely everyone! The kids had whatever they wanted, the fussy eaters had anything from the bar menu, the wine was continuously flowing and the catering staff were so nice and friendly! From myself and John we want to thank all the staff for their efforts especially Claire Dunne and John Doyle for everything in the 13 months leading up to the wedding. Thanks again for helping us make our day so wonderful.? Aisling & John Byrne? 6th June 2015

We got married on the 5th of June 2015 and we couldn't recommend this hotel to engaged couples any higher the food was out of this world. We booked the The Clanard Court 2 years before our wedding and were told that they are constantly upgrading their hotel and in that time the bar was renovated the ballroom was renovated the garden was changed and the rooms were upgraded so they were true to their word.? Claire and Emma were fantastic got back within the hour for any questions I may have and on the last few days put my mind at ease about everything. The staff on the day were so nice and very professional. the food was amazing i had so many friends say it was the best they ever tasted and nobody was left hungry with staff coming out with more and more. I had a few guests with with food requests and there was no problems. The Hotel is beautiful especially the ballroom and made our day so special and we can't Thank them enough for everything.

We had originally chosen the Clanard Court after meeting Mary due the family feel we found from the hotel along with the professionalism from Mary and her staff and reviews we had looked at. At all times up to our wedding day we found all staff we dealt with extremely professional and accommodating. The wedding day itself could not have went better and the reaction we had from all our guests was that they had an amazing day, in no small part to the efforts to all staff. I would highly recommend the Clanard Court for anyone considering booking their wedding, you will not be disappointed!!

Hi Deirdre and Dermot, Thanks for your lovely review. It was a pleasure dealing with you both in the run up to your wedding, I enjoyed being involved in the planning process with you, it was easy as you both really knew what you wanted and were always so positive and so eager to take our advise whilst putting your own personal touches on everything. You both looked amazing on the day, great to see you both so relaxed and enjoying the festivities. If you get a chance please do share some photos, or drop in and have a coffee and a chat when your next passing. Looking forward to welcoming you back for a little R&R on your 1st anniversary. Enjoy married life Best Wishes Mary and Team

Myself and Dermot had a really positive experience with the Clanard Hotel, from start to finish they team in the Clanard Hotel looked after us so well. From our first meeting, to our confirmation booking, our menu tasting, our last meeting before the wedding and finally the day of our wedding. They advised us based on their wedding experience, and we had 100% trust in them. On the day itself the food and service was excellent, we had so many lovely comments from our guests about the food. Whenever we told our guests/our band/our wedding cake supplier where our wedding was so many had lovely comments about the hotel. I can't wait to visit the hotel again, and the garden out the back weather permitting is a really good idea for some photos also. We got married on the 23 May 2015, and are delighted we choose the Clanard Court? Deirdre & Dermot.

Words can not describe the exceptional standards of The Clanard Court Hotel. From our first meeting with the highly trained staff , too the last minute of our day we were blown away by the devotion and genuine care to us and our guests. We held our ceremony in the hotel also and no wish was to big for them to grant to us. It will always hold a very special place in our hearts. All of our wedding guests commented on the food , level of attention and the beauty of the hotel and the rooms. Thank you all again for everything you have done for us and our families. We would highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering holding their wedding at this venue. Many thanks for everything. Paul and Imelda Hogan. 11th April 2015.

Venue is beautiful and intimate and has a one wedding per day policy without the increased price for it that other venues charge. The room is large and spacious and well lit with doors backing out onto the patio and garden area. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and were professional and clearly well versed in working at weddings. There was no issue that couldn't be solved. The food was plentiful and very tasty. It was also piping hot when served to our guests who all raved about how good the food was. Apart from our chosen menu options the venue also provided and catered for some guests who wanted to order something else without any fuss or hassle. The bedrooms in the hotel are lovely and spacious and spotlessly clean. Breakfast the following morning is cooked fresh to order. I really wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Clanard Court to other brides and suggest you go view it and speak with the staff.

Hi Aoife Thank you for your lovely review and words of praise about the hotel and our team of staff. We take great pride in doing it right and are constantly upgrading and investing in furnishings and fittings so that everything is always crisp and clean.

We got married March 14th 2015 and it was the best day of our lives! The Clanard Court Hotel was always going to be our one and only choice for our reception as we'd been to a few weddings and functions there before and we loved the reception that we'd always received from the staff and the food is always great there too. Nothing could have prepared us for the treatment that we received in the run up to our big day though. Claire, the wedding co-ordinator was exceptional. The line of communication was constantly open and there was no question too big or too small for her. On the day of our wedding from the time we arrived at the hotel everything was just perfect. There were plenty of drinks and canapes in the lobby for our guests and we had music entertaining the overflow in the bar. The atmosphere was brill. When the bell rang and our guests were seated that's when the hotel really shone..from the moment Timmy and I sat down the waiting staff kicked in to gear and our wine and meals were served almost immediately..the time between courses was timed perfectly and the meal, Beef or Salmon, was delicious. We both had Beef and honestly it would melt in your mouth. After the meal and speeches the room cleared for a very short turnover time to make way for the dancing. Our guests were left waiting no length at all and that was one thing that I had hoped for. If I could do it all over again then we would choose the Clanard Court Hotel all over again. Thank you!!

My husband and I got married on March 7th 2014 and our wedding reception was in the Clanard Court Hotel. We were absolutely delighted with the service and the entire experience in the Clanard. Claire, the wedding coordinator is professional, experienced and a really lovely person. The standard of the food, the service and the overall atmosphere was fantastic. Loads of our guests remarked on the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff - nothing was too much trouble. We have 2 weddings this year in the Clanard Court in which our friends chose the venue from the experience they had at our wedding! I think all were in agreement that the food and service were superb.

We had our wedding reception at the Clanard court hotel on Wednesday 31st December 2014, it was by far a fantastic venue. Claire our wedding co-ordinator was more than helpful through out the planning, she gave us great advice & helped us with any issues and queries we had in the months & days before our wedding day. Service and food on the day was more than perfect, I would highly recommend the Clanard court hotel for any occasion. Thank you to all the staff at the Clanard court hotel for great service on our wedding day & the next day at breakfast and our evening meal on the 1st of January. Kind regards Lisa & Nigel

I had my wedding reception in the Clanard Court Hotel on the 21st of June 2014. I have to say it was the best weekend of my life and it made my wedding day even more special as the staff done everything I asked and a lot more. I had my two children with me aged 6 and 2 I had great peace of mind as we had our own private garden which they used to get out and about so they were not stuck inside. No one else in the hotel had access to the garden so it was a relaxed place were all my family and friends could relax. Adam looked after us on the day and he tended to all our needs straight away. The food was amazing as well and we had so many dishes to choose from. The Clanard Court Hotel is a beautiful hotel with beautiful grounds. Every one of my guests were saying they had a great day and said the staff were brilliant. I still get phone calls to date and people say what a great day they had and they still say the staff of the Clanard Court Hotel is amazing. I have told everyone about my amazing wedding weekend and I recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to anyone who is looking for an amazing hotel for their wedding day. We were all sad when Monday came and we had to go home. I would rate the Clanard Court Hotel with 10 stars if there was a 10 star rating. I will be returning to the Clanard Court hotel in the near future. Myself and my family had an amazing experience and we would like to once again thank all the staff for making my wedding weekend one of the best days of my life

My husband and I had our reception here and had a fantastic time! The staff were so helpful and the day ran like clockwork and so smoothly, we never had to worry about a thing, and even had a 10 minute break and a cup of tea in the foyer when all our guests were seated for dinner! I cannot praise Adam, Claire and Tara and all the staff enough for making the day magical. Thank you all. Room Tip: Bridal suite was lovely!

We got engaged the October bank holiday 2011, it took us until the new year to set our date, which was to be the 15th of March 2014, we planned to save up for our wedding first so we were left no bills when we came home from our honeymoon, just to enjoy married life together. We then began the task of finding that all important wedding venue. Very easy you would think it was not to be so, we went to most of the wedding showcases in our area, to be told, no we can’t do the menu we wanted....no we don't allow extra vendors brought in.... you won’t need that entertainment...... 14 venues later we were feeling so stressed, we gave it one last stab and went to the Clanard Court Hotel's wedding showcase, we pulled up outside to a beautiful hotel with lovely animals just pottering about on the hill. it was a very busy showcase, we walked into the reception room and immediately loved it, the tables set up beautifully and the amazing gardens visible through the end doors, we looked around to see who we could talk too, Claire the wedding coordinator introduced herself to us and very simply sold it to us there and then , she was amazing, she made us feel we were the only engaged people there, she made us feel so comfortable asking all sorts of questions, some silly but after all we had never been married before so we needed advice, and Claire was only great at helping us without making us feel rushed. From that day to our big day she was fantastic, always replying to our emails or phone calls really quickly and boy did I have a lot, as time went on and more money was saved, we would add something else to our plans. Our big day arrived and from the time we stepped out of the car until two days later when we left, we felt like celebrities, all the staff were so friendly and helpful, continuously going the extra mile to make our stay and all our guests stay, the best it could be, 8 months later I still have guests raving about our big day thanks to Claire, Adam and all the team

Brilliant is the only word for it. Clare was so friendly and helpful, and she accommodated all the extras I wanted to put in, like stands in the foyer, treats for the table, photos beside the wedding cake and a video made by the bridesmaid for the speeches. I didn't have to ask for a thing on the day, only to turn up and enjoy it. As the hotel has @40 rooms, it accommodated everyone under the one roof for the day. Well recommended. The private garden was perfect for photos, and the foyer was a perfect entrance.

Well accept Brilliant, Thank You!!!! Thanks for your kind words, Claire surely puts a big emphasis on the small things as she knows what a difference they make. She is enjoying her maternity leave with baby Luis and looking forward to returning after Christmas. Were delighted that everything went wonderful on the day. We have a golden rule here - The moment you step on that red carpet its relaxation time. You've done your bit now its our turn to do the hard work!!! Were delighted that yourself and Ken took our advise and relaxed and enjoyed the day. Looking forward to catching up with you both again and hope your enjoying married life Best Wishes - Mary and Team.

We attended a wedding at this Hotel yesterday and it was really great! The staff were friendly and the manager was helpful, she went around chatting to the guests. The meal and service was top class and the beef was tender. The function room was beautifully laid out with white covers on the seats tied with yellow bows. It was a very pleasant experience. Check out the Alpaca's on the grounds all the way from South America, as explained to us by the friendly manager.

The Clanard Court Hotel and all their staff are exceptional; they simply made our dreams come true. The warm welcome we received at the wedding fair was great and the close follow up prior to our wedding gave us a peace of mind. On our wedding day we were so happy with our table setting and table plan. The staff were so attentive and ensured we had a fantastic day.

I got married in The Clanard Court in August this year & I have to say it's a fabulous wedding venue! From start to finish the staff couldn't do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble. There's a great atmosphere in the hotel. The rooms are lovely & spacious, not to mention spotless clean. And the food is fabulous too. I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding.

I can't recommend this hotel as a wedding venue highly enough. We got married there in October this year and from start to finish I have nothing but high praise for Claire, her team and all the staff at this hotel. The facilities are amazing. It is a beautiful setting for a wedding. Their gardens are fabulous for photos as is the foyer with its beautiful fireplace. Food was fantastic (and we now regularly eat there!). Service was fantastic throughout the whole day. My new husband and I were made to feel so special and Claire and her team made it so that we didn't have to worry about a thing except having the best day of our lives. On a personal note I feel any good hotel can do a good wedding. But for me it was the staff, especially Claire that makes this hotel an exceptional choice for the perfect wedding day. To be honest, even writing this I can't convey enough how awesome this hotel is. I really hope they get top spot in this competition as they deserve every accolade going! Our day was the best day ever!

Hi Geraldine I just want to thank everyone from the Clanard Court Hotel! We literally had the most amazing time and everything went according to plan. All our guests were complementing the venue, staff, service, and food! We want to thank you, Liam, Brian & Bridie in particular. Due to our hectic Sunday morning we forgot to leave something for the staff but will do this on our return from honeymoon. Thank you Michelle & Conor

A heart felt thank you from Maria and I to the staff in the Clanard Court for making our special day truly memorable.? The staff in the hotel are a credit to the organisation. From Brian to Liam and Hazel and Getaldine, everyone made us and our guests feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed. The atmosphere during our stay was sensational and the staff in the clanard court were pivotal in helping to making that happen. The Clanard Court have a fantastic team in place there and I wish them all every success in the future because each and every one of them deserve it.? It was an absolute pleasure dealing with them in organising our wedding day. They work so hard for perfection Their attention to detail is impeccable.? We cannot thank them enough.? The food was equisite and served in a well organised manner. The setting of the venue was elegant and beautifully and their willingness to help us add our own touches was very impressive. The staff really do take the stress out of organising a wedding. Any request we had was met with ease of approval and executed by the hotel staff to ease any potential burden on Maria and I. ? The owners of the hotel even provided us with a wedding gift which was s really nice touch. It is a family owned hotel and it shows in the warmth and professionalism of the staff. The staff see mike they love their job and it results in a fabulous service and a fantastic experience.? Our wedding day surpassed our expectations and that is mainly down to the staff in this wonderfull hotel. We cannot wait to return for our anniversary. Warm regards? Rob and Maria

We couldn't rate this hotel highly enough. No job was too big or small for Claire and the rest of the team all the staff were a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this hotel to anyone getting married without a moment's hesitation. They make you feel welcome from the moment you step through the front door.

Great hotel and extremely helpful and friendly staff they could not do enough for us with our wedding,they more or less done everything for us and told us where to be and what we needed to do. Very professional and myself and my wife would highly recommend this hotel.

We had our wedding in the Clanard Court in March 2014. We would highly recommend it. All management & staff were very helpful and kind to us. Everything was perfect on the day.

I can not thank the staff of the Clanard Court enough for making our wedding day such a special memorable day but also making the run up and all preparations such an enjoyable experience.? From booking to the day itself the staff no matter who we dealt with made us feel that nothing was to big of a task. Even when we changed it from just a wedding to also be our sons christening day. ? The hotel itself is also kept to the highest standard (reception area, ball room, grounds, bar and bedrooms) which all my guests commented on and could understand then why we had falling in love with the venue on our first visit. Also the food both on the day and the next day was exceptional all dishes where served piping hot and there was no shortage with staff ready to provide extra at any time. ? We would have no problem at all recommending the hotel to anybody and hope that we get to go again and experience the brilliant service and setting as a guest, and from guests feedback this will happen very soon. Thanks again for helping us make our day everything we could have wished for and so much more. Louise, Richard & Ollie x

We got married here in August last year & I have to say it was a fabulous day. The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful, they really couldn't do enough for us. We had Adam looking after us on the day & he was absolutely brilliant. The value for money was amazing & there were finishing touches & extras that were provided to us without any extra cost. The food was gorgeous & there was plenty of it. The garden is great for photos. The bedrooms are lovely & spacious, obviously the bridal suite was fab. This hotel has a warm & welcoming feel to it & I would highly recommend it, especially for a wedding.

We held our wedding in Clanard Court Hotel and it was the best time of our lives. we got there Friday and didn't leave till Monday. with the wedding on the Saturday and having the service there is was so lovely. the pressure was off and left in the hands of the people who knew best. everything went so well and everyone said how friendly and helpful the staff and Management were. you have to choose very carefully about your wedding day and we would say 100% that Clanard Court Hotel is the place to have it. your family and friends will thank you for it and you will have the wedding you want. 10 out of 10 for service/ food and friendly staff. all the best. Carmel and Timmy O Brien.

We had an amazing time along with our guests we highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left the staff could not do enough for us.the food was more than we could have hoped for the atmosphere was comfortable cosy and intimate which made our guests feel relaxed and welcome and the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything went smooth so if your looking for a venue stop looking the Clanard Court has everything and more to make sure you have an amazing day I only wish I could have it again I enjoyed it so much.

Myself and my husband have been married just over a year. We had our reception in the Clanard Court Hotel. The staff of the Clanard made our day truly memorable, we had some of our wedding photos taken in the lobby at the amazing fireplace and they are some of our favourite photos, we cannot rate the staff and the hotel highly enough and we would definitely recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to any couple getting married.

My husband and I got married at the Clanard Court. I can't praise them highly enough. From the very first moment we walked in the door to view the hotel to the day we walked out as husband and wife the experience was fantastic. Nothing we asked for was too much trouble. We were made to feel like friends. The team made the entire day perfect and relaxed and it felt easy and so special. Food was amazing, surroundings are beautiful and the staff so efficient and friendly. We've been back many times will be back many more. Highly recommend it.

Where to start ... we had a spring wedding in the Clanard Court hotel and from the second we booked we had an amazing experience with the team there. From the package and the flexibility, to the super quick responses and help and guidance we got from Claire, to the staff and team on the day. The food was perfect and we got loads of great feedback from our guests saying what a great time and experience they had in the hotel. The team could not have accommodated us more, any request regarding changes in packages, add ons was not a problem. We brought some of our own pieces for the tables and we were accommodated with everything. All the help provided along the way meant the day was so much less stressful for both of us as we had complete confidence that everything would go perfect in the hotel on the day.? We had the most amazing day and experience with the Clanard Court and could not recommend them more, they were awesome from start to finish!! ? Yvonne and Stephen.

From start to finish the Clanard Court were excellent. This venue was the first we visited and we fell in love with it from the moment we walked through the door, we were instantly made feel welcome and at home. Both Claire and Emma were fantastic. On the day of the wedding everything ran smoothly, the function room was so elegant and the attention to detail was superb. The staff were so friendly, they provided an excellent service, and our guests commented on how amazing the food was. I would highly recommend this venue to future brides and grooms as this is an absolutely amazing hotel.
