I wasn't sure what to expect for our wedding due to the restrictions but we had a brilliant day. We were permitted to have 50 guests and each person there was very important to us. The whole day felt very relaxed and everyone really enjoyed themselves. I couldn't recommend Nora and her team enough, they went above and beyond to make our day perfect. All of the extra touches didn't go unnoticed. I would highly recommend the Claregalway hotel to any couple planning their wedding.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the Claregalway Hotel to any potential wedding couples. Nora was a pleasure to deal with. She was always very efficient in responding to any queries we had. Our big day ran seamlessly. The whole team at the hotel were very professional and friendly. And made us feel very welcome. We were offered many different menu options and on the day our meal was delicious while the table service was top class.There was also an excellent cocktail menu! The hotel was extremely clean and well finished. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The hotel provided us with an intimate area which was well thought out and suited our small group. We had the perfect day and look forward to staying at the Claregalway Hotel again soon.

For anyone hesitating on going ahead with the reduced no's for your wedding we say plough on. Its a most enjoyable & intimate day where you really do have good quality time with your guests. Where do we start from our initial meeting with Nora at the Claregalway Hotel we knew we were in a safe pair of hands. She took the time to meet us, get to know us as a couple and get to grips with the kind of a day we were looking to have. And in all of this the facts were put forward very clear and there was no pressure on making quick decisions. Throughout all of the changes over the past 6 months which we had to make nothing was ever too much trouble and Nora was always a listening ear & accommodated us in all the intricacies of the lockdown that we had to make. Great selection of tasty food on the menu from the drinks reception to the dessert. All of our guests enjoyed immensely and we found the staff to be most helpful & kind. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Claregalway Hotel & the services of Nora Gill for anyone planning their upcoming wedding. We look forward to having our after wedding party there in October Covid restrictions permitting.

We got married in December 2020 and despite all that is going on in the world we had the most magical day. We had rearranged at the last minute and with only 6 weeks to get everything finalised we were feeling the pressure, but not Nora and her team who were all cool calm and collected. Looking back at the videos from the day you only appreciate how beautiful the hotel is and was for the day especially with the Christmas decorations. The ceremony room was so beautiful we couldn't believe how perfect and magical it was. The small things are the big things and after outdoor photos and two cold flowergirls the hot chocolate on our return was needed! The meal was so delicious, served really quickly and everyone loved it, the vegetarian options was especially enjoyed. We cannot recommend the Claregalway hotel enough it is a gem of a hotel and we hope to have many days out there again. Thanks again for the lovely day Nora Paul and everyone at the hotel.

From the first time we met Nora we knew that the Claregalway Hotel was the hotel for us! We planned our wedding from Australia and we knew immediately that we were in good hands with Nora. She is a pleasure to deal with and made everything so easy for us, she was always available to help in anyway possible and her attention to detail is second to none. Whenever we had questions or needed recommendations she was only too happy to help. On our wedding day Nora and all the staff at the hotel were amazing and couldn't do enough for us. The room was beautifully decorated, the food was excellent and the service was outstanding, all of our guests had great praise for the hotel. We can't recommend the Claregalway Hotel enough to anyone planning their wedding. To Nora, Niall and your excellent team thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. Lorraine & Cathal

From the first minute we met Nora we knew it was the place for us. Nothing was too much trouble. everything we wanted was given to us and more. Excellent value for money we told Nora the package that was within our range and she did not try steer us higher which happened when we enquired elsewhere. Food was delicious. Staff were so friendly and accommodating to every guest. Ellen, in particular, could not have done enough for us on the day and the day after. We had our ceremony in the hotel also and it was perfect. Nora contacted all of the suppliers so we did not have to worry about organizing them for the day ourselves taking all the pressure off us. Both families could not say enough things about the hotel. Food, service, hospitality and the hotel rooms were all brilliant.

Nora is fantastic at her job, she was absolutely brilliant in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. She made the planning of the day so easy, nothing was any hassle, any questions we had were answered promptly by email or phone. She was extremely helpful and an absolute pleasure to deal with. All the staff were brilliant and so helpful. The room was beautifully decorated and a big plus for us is the Claregalway hotel offer the choice of having the chiavari chairs and they are beautiful. we really couldn't have asked for more.

A wonderful hotel with amazing staff ???? . Nothing was too much and no pressure to be OTT .. the hotel lets you have " your day " big or small . I booked the hotel for our Wedding after receiving an e mail from Nora ( owner / manager ) . My brother and his wife were attending a Wedding and got chatting to Nora. She took my details and e mailed me. From then on James and I were in love with the place . The pictures on their web page are true . I am a Galway girl living in Australia so it was very important to me to be able to trust the hotel. No need to panic , Nora was amazing . I'd e mail her today and within 48 hrs I'd have a response. We got e mails if she was on a day off or holidays ! It made things so easy . We met with Nora twice before our big day. She was wonderful , took the time to go over ever detail and gave us ideas when we were unsure . The package we went with had items we didn't want and Nora gave us the freedom to omit and add as we wanted . Nora helps you create your day ! We had our ceremony and reception with Nora. It was a small family Wedding . We had guests from the U.K , Finland and Australia traveling. It was very easy arrange their accommodation with the hotel . The staff were amazing . I would highly recommend The Claregalway hotel for a Wedding. I can't say enough good things about Nora and her staff. The food and service was amazing . All our guest were raving about how good and how much food there was . The reception staff even going as far as to print off our menus for some of our guests the following day ! We stayed 2 nights at The Claregalway , having a little get together the following night . It was a wonderful weekend and we can't Thank Nora and her staff enough for looking after us so well . If you are organizing your Wedding from afar then this is where you need to go ! We look forward to returning sometime in the future. Again many Thanks .

From the beginning of planning to the very end, Nora was always there with great advice.

We cannot rate the hotel, it's staff or Nora highly enough. Nothing was a problem and she took so much of the stress away organising everything and making sure all ran smoothly, which it did. She was also there to provide a word of support and calm when my husband and I were unsure what to do or where to go, it can be quite stressful when you realise that you don't really know what you're doing! She suggested several things that we wouldn't have thought of and was just so supportive from beginning to end. The food was perfect and the service was exemplary. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel to everyone and everyone and I know all my guests would agree since we've had nothing but great feedback. Thank you Nora for everything!

The food was fantastic ,hot and there was no waiting on the next course.Everything was stress free and ran so smooth.They even organised an in-house babysitter within an hour of us needing one.We have 5 children,3 which are under 4,Nora and Nicola kept them busy and made sure they walked up the aisle quietly and were well behaved during the ceremony. Nora and Nicola always made sure that we were on time with what was on our wedding plan.There was also a children's club the following morning which gave us a few free hours to say goodbye to some of our guests in the reception.

Highly recommend the Claregalway hotel. Nora provides a very professional service from the first meeting to the morning after the weekend. She is very approachable and adjustable to suit the couples requests. Everyone that attended our wedding was very impressed with the service of the hotel also. Food was very quick from the kitchen. Her attention to detail is very impressive even down to the very small things like a disposable tooth brush in the bridal suite! I could not rate this hotel and its service highly enough for the great job Nora and her team did on the day of our wedding.

We had our wedding in the Claregalway Hotel in October, 2016. We cannot thank Nora enough for everything! Every step was totally enjoyable and stress free, from the initial meeting with Nora right up to the big day itself. Nora was always easy to talk and a pleasure to deal with. Whenever we had a question Nora was always highly efficient at getting back to us with an email or a call. She gave us great advice and guidance along the way and was highly accommodating to all of our own ideas. All of the staff in the hotel were very pleasant to deal with and the food was delicious. It’s also a great location with plenty of photo opportunities, free parking and only a few minutes of a drive from the city. We are delighted we chose the Claregalway Hotel for our wedding as we feel that nobody else could compare to the value for money and professionalism that was provided to us.

Nora,Nicola and all the staff at the claregalway hotel were amazing to work with.From the minute we went into the hotel to speak with Nora right up until we checked out the day after the wedding. We couldnt have asked for best service. We had a rehearsal dinner the evening before the wedding. We had a room to ourselves and it was so lovely, no one was crowed on top of each other and the meal was simply delicious we couldnt have had nicer. As both families stayed in the hotel the night before Nora was on hand all through the preparations on the morning. The ceremony room was decorated to a high standard and we put our own mark on it. The drinks reception was displayed beautifully. We didnt have anyone waiting around to be severed or anything. The function room was decorated exactly how we wanted it and they even had so surprises along the way. The food was fantastic and we couldnt eat enough. Everything was perfection. Nora always let us know what was happening and she was very discrete about talking to us. The food when the band took a break was also delicious and it was beautifully displayed. We even got more food in the residents bar that night. Aaron and I couldnt recommend The Claregalway Hotel enough. We are so delighted with how smooth the day went and all our guest went home with a big small on their face. If you are looking for a wedding Venue then I can tell you The Claregalway Hotel is the place to have it if you want your day to be perfect and amazing quality you wouldnt go too far wrong :) A big thank you to Nora and the staff for an unforgettable day.

I first spoke to Nora about our wedding when she was on annual leave in spain, this shows you how commited she is that she took my call, from that phone call I knew this was the venue for us! She takes such great attention to detail and does not forget a detail, the food was amazing all of my guests are still talking about it, she organised the ballroom breautifully and gave us great suggestions! On the day all the staff were fantastic, especially Nicola the assitant manager who helped me with my dress and even had a needle and thread to hand she was also fantastic at helping with latenight entertainment we had organised! Nora decorated our room with all of our signs and bits we brought to the hotel she left everything in our room including our cake all ready to take home. it was lovely to go to our room when the night was over and she had everything placed so perfectly! we honestly could not have asked for a better wedding thanks so much Claregalway hotel!

When we started looking for venues in Galway we of course looked at the big, popular hotels in Galway city and Salthill. However, before we made any decisions we thought we'd drive out to Claregalway (about 20-30mins from the church we were getting married in) to see what they had to offer so we could at least say we'd covered all bases. The Claregalway isn’t a very big hotel, not compared with the larger hotels in Galway city, but within a few minutes of arriving there and meeting Nora (the hotel’s owner and wedding co-ordinator) we knew this was where we wanted to have our reception. It blew all the other hotels out of the water! Unlike other hotels which serve primarily as reception venues, the Claregalway Hotel becomes the hub for all your wedding planning. Nora will help co-ordinate details with you, liaising with suppliers (cake, car, florist, stationery, music) if need be to ensure that your wedding planning experience is as stress-free as possible. Her knowledge of all things “wedding” is unreal! Nora Gill is the embodiment of professionalism – no detail is left to chance. During our first meeting with her, before we decided to book the hotel (and in which we were greeted with champagne and strawberries!), Nora promised to send us further details regarding the hotel’s menus, local B&Bs and wedding suppliers including bands and DJs. Within the hour I had an email in my inbox with all the information she promised plus additional advice and information we might find useful. Considering I’m still waiting for similar information from wedding organisers at two of the most popular wedding hotels in Galway this level of service and attention from the Claregalway was a breath of fresh air and it is a level of service and attention we continued to receive throughout the planning process and beyond. Planning a wedding at the Claregalway hotel is such a personalised experience and the attention and special treatment you receive from Nora, Nicola, Niamh and all the staff involved in your weekend is exceptional. As a bride you want to feel like a princess and they truly make you and your partner feel like royalty! Everything about the service at the Claregalway is focused on the customer experience. From first impressions right up to the day after your wedding and beyond Nora and her staff at the Claregalway ensure that ALL the hotel’s guests – not just the couple getting married – are happy and comfortable and receiving the service they expect. I’ve been to a lot of weddings in and around Galway and, from the perspective of a guest, none of them offer the kind of service, quality and style that the Claregalway offers. The staff in all areas of the hotel are the friendliest you could possibly meet. They make you feel so welcome – like one of the family – and they cannot do enough for you. And, even though the hotel has set wedding packages, the hotel’s flexibility is such that when everything is finalised you have an almost bespoke wedding day and the value for money is second to none! We didn’t have a very big budget but at the Claregalway you can have the big budget experience without the big budget price tag. Picking the Claregalway Hotel as our reception venue was by far the best decision we could have made for our wedding. We couldn't have picked a better hotel! Thank you!!!

From the day we met Nora to discuss our plans she was professional and accomadating. I was excited to get started with our planning after speaking with her. Her experience was a huge help for me as I just didn't know where to start. I left knowing exactly how to approach the planning. On the run up to our day, it was so easy to communicate with Nora, be it via text, calls or email. She always got back to us promptly. Once the day arrived, our driver informed us he would be receiving a call from Nora to see how we were going and I thought her welcoming us at the front of the hotel was lovely. I needn't have worried about forgetting things as Nora remembered every little detail all the while staying cool and calm. Our florist hadn't provided bouquets as requested for our mothers and Nora had it sorted within an hour. The handover to Nicola meant we didn't have to worry for the evening too. Any congratulations we got throughout the evening was quickly followed by compliments about the food and service. The banqueting staff were exceptional. Everyone felt looked after. I still have family calling me a week later to tell us how great the day was, from food to the craic. We would highly recommend Nora and her team to deliver a wonderful wedding day.

We can't say enough about the service we received from Nora Gill and her staff, they were just unbelievable. First off we are living in America and my husband happened to have been at a wedding in the Claregalway 4 years prior, he had raved about the service and food and we decided to have our wedding there. When I contacted Nora in late 2014 I found her to be very pleasant and extremely helpful, she provided us with a list of different services from photography to bands etc, I was not familiar with the area so it was brilliant that Nora was able to put us in the right direction, we picked the package that best suited us which included everything. On the big day so many of our guests complimented that the food was tasty, hot and plentiful, the staff were very friendly nothing was a problem for them. Nora was on top of her game I felt like I was the only bride in Ireland on Friday July 1st. We can't thank them enough for making it a magnificent day.

Nora was a very accommodating wedding co-ordinator, she was very organized and helped us to create the best possible day for us. we were late arriving to the hotel due to traffic and Nora told us not to worry that she would be able to catch up time in the dining room and everything would run smoothly which it did. in our package we decide against a sweet cart but to our surprise it was available to our guests which was great. the best idea that was given to us and that our guests extremely enjoyed both kids and adults was the large photo booth where every guest in the photo was given a photo to bring home with them, to this day the guests are still talking about it. Overall, if I was to do it all over again I would pick the Claregalway Hotel again, it was brilliant in every possible way.

I can not speak highly enough of Nora in preparing for our wedding. Her warm personality professionalism and can do attitude was amazing. On our wedding day the function room looked amazing staff were extremely friendly and obliging and there was a lovely relaxed atmosphere to the day and that is down to Nora and her staff so I can not recommend the Claregalway hotel enough as a wedding venue. Our guests are still raving about the hotel , beautiful meal and excellent service.

We got married here in April 2011 and we just cannot thank or praise the Claregalway Hotel and Staff enough. Our wedding day was absolutely fantastic from the minute we arrived at the door to when we checked out. The Service and attention to detail was second to none, We were made to feel very special. The room looked amazing, all of our guests praised the meal,it was delicious. Everything was so well organised. Probably what stood out most were the staff on the day, they couldn't do enough. It really was the best day of our lives and I would 100% recommend the hotel to anyone. Thank you so much Nora, Paul and all your the team at the Clareglaway Hotel for such an amazing day.
