Gallagher's of Bunratty couldn't have been a better venue for our wedding from our initial dealings with them, to the great support in the days leading up to the wedding and on the day and afterwards collecting all our decorations.
My groom Pawe set me the impossible task of finding a wedding venue that could offer a seafood menu, so I was delighted when we found one in Clare so close to my parents? home with such a great reputation for food excellence locally. The groom Pawe had said he always dreamed of having octopus on his wedding day and Gallagher's made him an amazing dish just for him that was so delicious he's still talking about (and they wrote out the recipe for him too!). Our menu was amazing, we had some nervous fussy people and lots of allergies and Gallagher's were fantastic at managing it all. Our friends and family raved about how delicious our menu was (especially the people who had steak!), and many have said they intend to go back for dinner there again soon. Our canapes + our afters were similarly delicious; my only regret is that we had so much food we couldn?t eat everything they prepared that night so we had a lot left over! We also have a few Guinness + craft Beer snobs among our Galway friends but they all loved Gallagher?s, so we were delighted to see so many pints being drank on the day!
Gallagher?s even helped us with lots of special requests like bringing specific themed tableplans + placecards + incorporating some elements like signature cocktails for us, they were very supportive and willing to help, and did a great coat check too which was great and arranged microphones etc! They also were great at recommending contacts for wedding ceremony venues in the area (we did ours in Ardcroney Church inside Bunratty Folk Park). They sometimes have someone playing their piano during dinner, so we arranged for their usual person Catherine Clohessy to play during the evening and she was amazing to hear during the drink?s receptions + dinner, lovely touch (and very affordable!). We had notions of doing a dessert table to showcase Polish cakes + desserts, and Gallagher?s again have such an eye for layout, it looked fantastic when it was done, and everyone was taking photos of it!
Gallaher?s went above and beyond when it came to the beauty of the venue on the day, Gallagher?s organised a lot of fresh flowers on their own (that we didn?t pay for!) and changed the tables/chairs around to accommodate our table plan and removed booths, and it looked beautiful on the day. We received some of the best compliments about the venue itself, with one of our friends regretting their own hotel wedding as they loved ours so much! Our wedding was a Polish/Irish wedding and Gallagher?s were so nice about making sure they had a polish speaking waitress on the grooms parents table to make them feel comfortable, and they also printed menus with polish characters for the names etc (which isn?t on Irish keyboards so is nice gesture!).
I really can?t thank them enough, and I would encourage any couple looking to get married in Clare to give them a look as having worked in weddings and been in the service industry for year, I can?t recommend them enough.

As an international event planner, I recently relied heavily on Gallagher?s as the host venue for an upscale event or my client?s wedding rehearsal dinner and welcome party. The cuisine and service exceeded everyone?s expectations. The management was very hands on, ensuring that our individualized requests were seen to. This place is the quintessential Irish eatery with charm for days! I can?t recommend them enough.

Gallagher's of Bunratty was an easy choice when we were planning our wedding. Sublime food and excellent friendly service combined to give us an amazing experience to celebrate our wedding day. The charming interior was a perfect setting for an intimate celebration for family and friends.. We could not recommend this restaurant enough.

Planning was easy and they took care of everything on the day making sure our experience was carefree and fun. Staff are very friendly and professional and helped make everyone feel at home. The menu is excellent with delicious options for everyone. We always return to celebrate our anniversary and they always remember, a special place where we made great memories and great friends.
