I had my wedding at the Clayton Hotel Sligo on the 11th May 2024.
Everybody commented on how beautiful the food was and the amount they were given.
The staff were very helpful and friendly, and the rooms were beautiful.
The hotel even gave my mum a room to accommodate her mobility.
Vilma the wedding coordinator was outstanding through my whole wedding planning.
The scenery around the hotel is just beautiful.
It's like a castle and I felt like a princess that day
I can't recommend it enough, it's close to the town but yet its situated in a beautiful private area

From start to finish the staff were incredible. They are all so friendly and attentive. Vilma inparticular our wedding co-ordinator was amazing, always at hand! I had very little to do once I arrived, they took over and it was perfect. The service and food were outstanding and this was mentioned to me countless times from my wedding guests. All my guests staying had zero compliants over the entire weekend. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel.

Firstly our accommodation was upgraded to a junior suite with a welcome platter of fresh fruit.
The beautiful Christmas decorations were still in place so a lovely atmosphere prevailed.

Our function room was so lovely - white chair covers, round tables wonderfully decorated created a very special ambience. The hotel provided, free of charge, a meeting room that we used as a play area for the little people in our party.

Our pre-dinner mulled wine reception was lovely - wine was piping hot. The dinner was superb - guests raved particularly about the goat's cheese salad and the featherblade of beef but everyone talked about how good the food was. Cocktails got 5 stars particularly Amaretto Sour and Old Fashioned.

Vilma and Daniel were so efficient and lovely to deal with as were all the staff.

We all, particularly the children, enjoyed the swimming pool. It was a very special celebration for us and our family and we were so happy to celebrate in Sligo where we met 50 years ago.

Me and my now wife spent a wonderful few days here for our wedding. During covid we faced massive uncertainties and frankly the Clayton came to our rescue having had our initial wedding cancelled. From the outset the Clayton were a pleasure to deal with and continually went above and beyond. Friendly, hardworking and personable staff. Excellent food. Marvellous accommodation. It's a shame we couldn't make further use of their amenities due to Covid as I'm sure they too would have been outstanding. We left there feeling they had truly gone above and beyond in all aspects. I would recommend them as a hotel and business to anyone. I would also urge any couples facing wedding issues to also get in touch with them as they truly made our day special in the face of massive uncertainties. Thank you to all the staff.

We and our guests had an amazing day. To say I was blown away with the ceremony room would be an understatement. It was so beautiful and surpassed anything I could have imagined. The service throughout the day and including the meal was perfect.

The registrar said that it was the nicest room set up she had seen in a hotel in Sligo and the photographer loved it too.

Thank you again for being so helpful and accommodating.

5 Star Wedding Venue*****
We had our wedding in the Clayton Hotel Sligo this NYE. From start to finish the customer service was 5 star. Sandra O'Hara (Wedding Coordinator) attended to every detail, promptly replied to all emails & put this bride at ease throughout the planning, Sandra is a natural wedding planner & is such a lovely, friendly and jovial person an asset to front of house for sure. Also, who can forget the lovely Voyteck, don't worry he'll ensure you don't...his humour and attention to detail especially on your wedding day, ensuring the smooth running of everything is fantastic. From Noel's excellent customer service and pleasantries, Norma & Sebastian's scrumptious & very memorable food, which guests continue to rave about (esp.) the slow cooked beef (A+) still remember the taste yum!!! When a guest who's a serious beef farmer compliments the beef to a high standard you know it's good. What initially won us over to choose the Clayton in Sligo over many wedding venues we visited in the west, was definitely the staff, not having to sit in the reception to discuss wedding plans as hotel guests walk through, instead directed to a beautifully decorated private wedding room, & every time you visited the hotel over the course of the year, the staff always greeted you by name, the personal touch beats any we've experienced in numerous wedding venues we visited & we visited a lot..... Thank you so much Sandra and all the staff at the Clayton, we'll look forward to many future stays at the Clayton and our return visit for our anniversary next year.xx

Had my wedding here in September 2019, we had the most amazing day. The staff went above and beyond their duties especially Sandra O'Hara and Laurie Kenna who treated us like royalty. All our guests on the day told us that the food was top class and there was not one complaint. To top it off the weather was amazing we couldn't of asked for a better day. We will definitely be back for more visits. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts xx,
The new Mr and Mrs Howley.

We had our wedding here on the 18th of October 2019, and we cannot praise Sandra, Sarah and all the staff at the Clayton hotel Sligo enough. We had a wedding of 80 adults and a few children. From the very beginning Sandra was fantastic to deal with. There was never an issue too big or too small to deal with. I have to commend all staff, be it reception staff, to bar staff or the waiting staff, any time that my now husband would be on the premises they all pretty much greeted us by name, asking all about the wedding etc. It gave such a family and homely atmosphere during the run up and on the day of the wedding.

We had our ceremony in the hotel too, so I had all my morning preparations in the hotel the morning of the wedding. The rooms are extraordinary!! So big bright airy spacious rooms. The ceremony room was decorated fantastically, it really didn't feel part of the hotel. Every little detail was taken care of. We had the drinks reception then the wedding reception. We had our wedding pictures taken on both the amazing grounds of the hotel and in Hazelwood nearby.

The food during the reception was fabulous, I'm salivating just thinking about it! We had a number of guests with difficult intolerances to cater for, and the food they had was as equally tasty as what everyone else had. I had never attended a wedding before where platters for seconds were brought around, this was to much delight of a number of guests! The beef went down a storm, and I personally will be back for the hake.

My partner and I were inundated with queries of how we came upon this hotel, and guests complimenting all staff, the location, the rooms, the facilities and the food etc. I genuinely could not fault the hotel or any of the staff.

All of this meant my partner and I just had the most relaxed easy day and allowed us to just enjoy our day.

We really want to extend our gratitude to Sandra and Sarah,who ensured our day went off without a hitch.

Thanks again,

New Mr and Mrs Taylor

Amazing Hotel in the heart of Sligo. Made even more amazing by the staff. This really is a gem that has to be seen to be believed.

We had our wedding here at the end of August and all the staff went above and beyond for us. They took care of everything we needed. Minded the bride, groom and the whole party with such care both to our face and in the background. If you want somewhere amazing for your wedding in this part of the country I couldn?t recommend it more.

We had the most amazing wedding day in the Clayton Hotel Sligo. We got married in the charming Canis Major chapel on the grounds which was not only absolutely stunning but was also so handy since we had lots of guests from overseas who had already travelled so much to be there. The scenic driveway really impressed our guests and set the tone for a stellar day. Our reception was in the Pegasus ballroom, everything had been tailored to our taste and style as a couple perfectly - we loved every second of our big day. Sandra and the whole team made everything go so smoothly and were always there for anything we needed and beyond - we couldn't recommend them or the Clayton Sligo highly enough.

The Perfect Wedding
We would like to thank all at The Clayton Hotel for giving us such a wonderful Wedding Day. We had 100 guests stay at the hotel for 3 nights, the wedding celebrations started from the moment they stepped off the coach from the airport, where they were greeted with champagne, canapes and a smile.The service throughout the hotel was exemplary from staff in all areas, our guests were extremely well looked after all weekend.
Our Wedding Day was extra special, with our ceremony in the Chapel in the grounds of the hotel, followed by a drinks reception then the wedding reception in the ballroom.The meal in the evening was outstanding with plenty of it, followed by a lovely buffet, our guests were very well fed all day, and the ones that had the roast beef couldn't stop talking about how amazing it was. We can not thank Sandra O'Hara enough, the wedding manager, for giving us such a special day, her professionalism and efficiency made the whole day go so smoothly, which allowed us to enjoy our day as well, nothing was too much trouble.
We would highly recommend The Clayton Hotel, Sligo for a Wedding, with its idyllic grounds, superb staff, fantastic facilities, amazing food,and great accommodation, everything in one place this is the perfect location for a wedding.
All our guests have not stopped talking about what a wonderful wedding and weekend they had.
Thank you all so much

We had our wedding in the Clayton hotel Co Sligo on the 4th of May 2019, and all I can say is that it was the best day of our life's.
From start to finish nothing was a problem everything was on time and our guests would give 10/10 for time and great food served on the day.
Sandra is the wedding and events manager and she was a dream to work with, she made the whole planning of our wedding so easy and stress free.
The Clayton hotel really went above and beyond to make our dream wedding come true.
And I want to thank Sandra so much for helping us achieve this magical day.

The support and help we received from the staff at the Clayton was exemplary. Sandra, Voytek and the team were with us every step of the way, providing help as well as suggestions on vendor contacts, food recommendations, etc. Our wedding day was seamless and enjoyed by all our guests, the food was especially raved about! I would highly recommend the Clayton Hotel as a wedding venue to consider, having the perfect combination of an intimate wedding ceremony situated in a stunning hotel with a beautiful ballroom to entertain your guests afterwards.
