We got married here on 15th of February. I cannot say enough about Clare, Colin and all the staff. Everything was absolutely amazing and we have received such fabulous comments about the food and staff. Laurence the head chef can only be described as a gastronomical artist. Nothing was too big or small for Clare. She guided us through everything with a smile and we had such great fun together. We’re only sorry it’s all over. I was teary on Sunday checking out. You all made the hotel a home away from home for us. We were so comfortable and relaxed on our big day because we knew we were in the best of hands. Love to all and congratulations on your excellent service and amazing, friendly and supportive staff xx Mr & Mrs Haugh ??

From the very first day we arrived in The Woodford Dolmen Hotel we were blown away! It had come highly recommended to us & it did not disappoint! Clare was amazing from day one, anything we asked was not a problem. She was always in the other end of the phone or email. The day of the wedding was just superb from start to finish! Arrival reception was great, staff all day & night were so helpful, friendly & efficient. Food was first class! For weeks after people were still talking about the meal! The room decoration was beautiful. Overall we could not fault one single thing, it was just absolutely fantastic!

Future Brides and Grooms. If you do one thing today go to the Woodford Dolmen and make an appointment with Clare Kavanagh she is in one word SUPERWOMAN. We definately made the right choice when chosing this hotel from its location to the grounds the food 10/10. We had the most amazing day ever and Clare and her team made that happen for us. Our wedding guests are still talking about the food and the room decor. Nothing could be faulted. I would highly reccomend future bride and grooms to check it out

From the 1st meeting with Claire everything was dealt with very professionally & they take all the stress out of planning a wedding, I'm usually a very anxious person & the week of the wedding I was so calm & it was all down to how they are so organised & professional, it put me at ease... every single thing about our wedding in the dolmen was absolutely amazing, they couldn't do enough for us, it was the best day of our lives & we would highly recommend this venue to future brides & grooms...

We can not recommend The Woodford Dolmen Hotel enough from start to finish the staff were amazing we didnt have one problem on the day and if there was we didnt know about is as the staff really went above a beyond. As for the food it was also amazing i still have wedding guests talking about how gorgeous the food was. Your wedding day is very special but at the woodford dolmen they made it more special than what we could have imagined and as for the packages they are they best around in our opinion.Your personal wedding planner takes care of everything so all you have to do is enjoy the rest of your planing.

Everything went really smooth. We had nothing to worry about. I didn't have to think about anything on the day. Clare and Colin were excellent to deal with. The staff on the day were so friendly and helpful. The food was exceptional, we are still getting comments on how good it was. I had my own theme and lots of different accessories to get set up on the morning of. We were able to drop everything off the day before and the hotel organised it all exactly how I wanted. Everything was perfect!!

Review by
From day one when we stepped inside the Dolmen we knew it was the venue for us. We loved the homely feel with the friendliness of the staff to the beautiful decor and fantastic value. With the help of Clare and Colin we planned our day exactly as we wanted it. No request was too big and with their help we had a completely stress free lead up to our Wedding day. On the day itself everything ran so smoothly and we were treated like royalty. The service of the food was amazingly quick with all tables being served together. The quality and the quantity of food was second to none. We stayed with family and friends on the night following the wedding and despite their being a very big wedding and a Christmas party also, once again our service was 100% abd we felt just as special and important as our wedding day. All of our guests have complimented our choice of hotel and many have said it was the best wedding venue they have been to. We cannot recommend the Woodford Dolmen enough as a wedding venue. From the professionalism of Clare and Colin along with a wonderful catering team and the BEST value packages around....you could not ask for more. Our only regret is it had to end!!! We so look forward to celebrating our 1st anniversary with you and perhaps we will even visit before that! Thank you for making our Wedding Day a dream come true .....we will cherish the memories forever. Trina & Peter Rooney 8th Dec 2017
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Triona & Peter, thank you both so much for your great recommendation and for all your lovely comments about our service & hotel. Admittedly, I'm a little biased but I agree with your guests about it being "the best wedding venue they have been to" but I'm delighted to hear that they feel that. It was a pleasure working with you both in the run up to your wedding & I'll miss your emails & wedding fair visits but as you say we'll see you for your 1st anniversary anyway. Hope you are settling nicely into married life and you can tell your Mum her bird cages are getting constant compliments here. Thanks again for your kind words & see you both soon. Clare.

We would highly recommend the Woodford Dolmen for a wedding venue! Facilities are fab, food is devine and staff are excellent. Thank you again for a memorable day :)

We were very happy with the Woodford Dolmen. From day one when we enquired about our wedding the help that we received was wonderful. The staff went our of their way to make sure our day was as stress free and as enjoyable as possible. Organisation and co-ordination of our big day was brilliant and we did not have any worries at all.
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Hi Liz & Jim, Thank you so much for your lovely review here. Delivering an enjoyable, stressfree day for all our couples and their families is our aim so it's lovely to read that's exactly how you experienced it. Thanks again for booking your big day with us, we enjoyed being a part of it & staff here are still talking about your sister Bernie's great bridesmaid speech/song and some are wondering can they book her for their celebrations. Wishing you both a wonderful married life as husband & wife and don't forget to pop in and say hi to us when your passing. Clare

I can't fault anything about this venue. Clare and the staff made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to do so. The meal and service was just right, and with no complaints. Entertainment was very good also. The venue was decorated just as we liked and in comparison to other venues we had looked at, the price was perfect.
Review by
The Woodford Dolmen hotel was simply amazing from start to finish. I couldn’t fault any element of the day or the days leading up to the wedding. The food was second to none and the service was of the highest standards with friendly efficient staff. Highly recommend the Woodford Dolmen Hotel for your wedding!

Review by
I worked with Clare Kavanagh to create the most amazing wedding day imaginable. The Woodford Dolme care about each couple and put in every effort possible to make the day perfect. Clare took all the reception work from me so i could worry about other things. Incrdible staff and everyone raved about the food! The most amazing place and we will be returning to them at any available opportunity in the future
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Hi Rachel. Lovely to read your review here. We were delighted to be a part of your special day & so happy you enjoyed it so much. To be fair you made it very easy for me to "take all the reception work from you" with the lovely personal touches you had like your Taris Phonebox for cards & your mums handmade legomen favours. I really enjoyed working with both yourself and Dennis and wish you both a wonderful married life together. See you for your 1st wedding anniversary if not sooner. Clare.

From start to finish we felt supported. We were able to seek guidance on any question that came up during the planning. The staff at the Woodford dolmen made us and every single guest feel so welcome and truly could not have done any more to make it the dream day we had always wished for. Food was absolutely outstanding!!! This hotel is not one to glance over... It is the perfect wedding venue to start the first day of the rest of your lives . I truly believe you could not be disappointed.
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Hello Ciara and Derek. Thank you for your beautiful review. I am touched by your words "It is the perfect wedding venue to start the first day of the rest of our lives", fabulous. I am delighted to hear you found the planning stage so simple, and was delighted to advise, guide and support you both. I am very lucky to have such a dedicated staff around me to ensure our couples have the perfect day, they want and deserve from the Woodford Dolmen Hotel. I wish you a lifetime of health and happiness to you both. Clare

The Woodford Dolmen and it's staff are just wonderful. From start to finish, they made us feel special. They were always warm, helpful, patient, informative and looked after all of our needs and requests. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful venue with absolute professionalism of all staff members. The food is out of this world, the service, out of this world. Everything is brilliant. If anyone is looking at venues at the moment for their special day, I would highly recommend the Woodford Dolmen. We have memories that will last a lifetime because of this lovely hotel. You will be treated like kings and queens. Everything was just so personable and it's wonderful to be treated so great and not just as a number which a lot of venues make you feel like. I can't thank these enough. We had the most beautiful and memorable wedding. Thank you for making it so special. Martina and Dave
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Hi Martina & Dave. Just reading your lovely review here & it's my turn to say wow. Thank you so much for such a lovely recommendation.

Delighted you have such great memories of your day and that we could be a part of creating those memories for you both. Thank you for your booking and wishing you a long & happy life together. Clare

Choosing the Dolmen Hotel for our day happened slightly by chance. However, it was fundamentally the best decision we could have made. Retrospectively, we would have been crazy to even consider an alternative venue. Nothing was a hassle. Clare guided us through all of the major decisions seamlessly. She's just incredible!! Her expertise and approachability created a sense that she was actually my secret bridesmaid who I could call upon anytime I needed help or advice. The hotel itself looks like a new build with beautiful interior decor that has such a lush feel but also feels amazingly welcoming and homely. The statement staircase in the lobby made for a gorgeous backdrop for our photos too. Unfortunately it rained for most of the day so all of our photos were taken inside the hotel and I have to say they all look amazing. The food!!.. Oh my god the food!!!! The quality of the food served on the day is still a talking point amongst my guests. One of whom took it upon themselves to independently contact the hotel to extend their thanks and admiration. Hats off to Laurence. He is a master of his craft. We opted for the sapphire bell package. The bang for buck is unrivalled and the quality of service delivered was just remarkable. All of the staff are an absolute credit to the hotel. All smiles and eager to help. A lot of our guests travelled quite a distance to attend the wedding. Each one of them commented on how enjoyable their stay was. From check in to breakfast each and every one of them received exceptional levels of service. There are just not enough good things I can say about the Dolmen Hotel and all of its fabulous team. Thank you so much for absolutely everything. It was just perfect.
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Wow Rachel & Wesley, thank you so much for your lovely comments about your day. I'm delighted you feel you made the best decision by booking your wedding with us. Laurence had mentioned to me alright that someone had called to give their "compliments to the chef" & he was delighted with this & i'll be printing off this review for him to have a look at aswell. Myself & Laurence both have a wonderful team who help to make every couples wedding day the most special it can be but the whole thing is helped by working with a couple like yourselves who were always a pleasure to deal with. I hope all went well at your festival themed Day After Party at home & I look forward to welcoming you back for your first anniversary stay with us if not before. Wishing you a wonderful married life. Regards Clare.
Review by
Clare the wedding planner and staff were unbelievable. They went above and beyond. We decided to marry in the hotel in a Spiritual ceremony. The hotel laid out lanterns and all sorts of amazing decor themselves free of charge. The food was unreal. Everyone was praising the staff and food. Definitely worth a visit at least to see it
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Hi Caroline, thank you for your review here & for your kind words. Our tagline is making weddings different & that's what we do for all our couples, so I'm delighted you liked the little extra touches. Congrats again to yourself & Stephen & see you soon hopefully. Cheers Clare

What can we say............... Coming from a retail background we know that 'people buy from people not shops'. This was exactly what happened the day we met Clare! Having been to two weddings in The Woodford Dolman in the past we knew that we defiantly wanted to have our wedding here. You only need to look at the hotels reviews to know that this is definitely the place to go if you want good hospitality, good food, welcoming faces and quality. We met Clare in 2015 to discuss our day and potentially book. Nothing was an issue and we talked for ages about what we wanted whilst Clare vigorously noted everything down. Ironically Colin approached us that day and said there was a wedding on and the happy couple had just arrived if we would like to go out and have a look at the car as it was one from their package. The car we sat in was the car we booked for 29/07/2017. We were delighted at how everything was going and Clare herself was getting excited and practically bouncing in her seat at the thoughts of planning our wedding. We wanted a BBQ the following day however this wasn't something the hotel could offer but after speaking to the chef this wasn't an issue.... Imagine that! Two BBQ's were purchased two years later (I know because I got that sale) for our after wedding party. Amazing!! Communication was fantastic. We were treated very well and remembered by our names not just from a booking form. The planning was made so easy with the use of Maposa and Clare herself that I think if we asked for the Hotel to be moved two inches to the left this would have been done for us. On the day our guests where so well looked after as were we. The set up was exactly as we discussed. Clare never once left our sides, she kept us on track for timing and the food was the best any of our guests had ever tasted (their words not ours). The following day we had a BBQ and again WOW what a set up! The Kileshin Suite was decorated as though another wedding was about to take place. It was stunning, the detail was amazing. We have four children and didn't have time to put many finishing touches on our day but Clare and her Team at the Woodford Dolman made sure we had the royal treatment. To hear our guests compliments was so humbling. We couldn't have been prouder of how the Hotel portrayed our day for us. Those guys deserve most of the credit we just told them what we wanted and turned up. Its been classed as the wedding where the food just kept coming and coming..... We are a family who like our grub and we couldn't fault the quality of anything. They deserve to be 5 stars in our eyes. 5 stars for their Hospitality 5 stars for their staffs attitude 5 stars for their food 5 stars for their communication 5 stars for their service and for Clare..................................... A million stars! We thank them so so much for making our day literally the best day/weekend we and our guests have ever had. We wish we could do it all over again. This hotel is extremely recommended.

From our very first meeting with the staff in the Woodford Dolmen, we were made feel so welcomed in the hotel. Appointments to meet Claire could be made at very little notice and with ease, as she would even email back late at night, I began to wonder if she ever left work! There was never any pressure put on us to add any extras to our package, in fact Claire worked with us to keep the costs to a minimal. Claire is so creative and an absolute pro at wedding planning, so when I had a rough idea of what I wanted she would be able to make my idea come to life! We always knew we were in very capable hands. On the day, the service was second to none. They had explained to us at our menu tasting that the roast beef was always nicer on the day, and what an understatement that was! It was delicious! Each and every staff member we encountered on our big day couldn't have done enough to help us, and we are so glad that we picked Woodford Dolmen as our venue!

Review by
From the 1st meeting with Claire and Colin until the day itself the help and support was amazing and nothing was to much trouble for the team . In fact they made some changes that made it so much more special for us but put a lot more pressure and labour on them but this didn't phase them. That's when I knew we had made the right choice with the Woodford Dolmen. Don't think about whether or not to book your wedding here just go ahead and do it because they really get behind you and make anything you want to do possible -we really can't thank them enough - and we are still getting feedback from our guests on how blown away they were with the service /food/friendliness of the hotel! We would 100% endorse the Woodford Dolmen. We just wish we could do it all again :)
Response from Woodford Dolmen Hotel
Ah guys, thanks so much for this lovely review. We were delighted to be a part of your wedding day, actually more like wedding weekend.

Wishing you both a wonderful married life together & looking forward to seeing you back here for your 1st anniversary.

We would highly recommend the Woodford Dolmen Hotel as a Wedding Venue. We had the most enjoyable day, everything we had asked for was provided to us without fail. The Management, Staff and dedicated Wedding Co-coordinator couldn't have done anymore for us, Our Bridal Party and our 400 guests. They made planning the reception for our Wedding Day so much easier. The hotel is beautifully decorated, the food was scrumptious and the service was second to none on the day.

We got married in the Woodford Dolmen hotel last year. We found Clare and the team amazing from our very first meeting with them. She was v flexible and did everything she could to make the day perfect for us. The hotel itself was excellent. The Barrow suite and surroundings were perfect on the day. The accomadation for guests was very reasonable. The meal was delicious and served with military precision to ensure everyone got a hot and very well presented dish without any delay. I could not recommend the hotel enough. ????

We attended the wedding fair earlier that year and Claire had a chat with us. Later we met up and discussed Dates and details. As time passed we changed a few things and nothing was a problem. The day was fantastic, we were made to feel like royalty. Our family and friends all agreed the service was second to none, food was piping hot, facilities were great and no felt rushed to leave the nexr day.

I cannot rate this Hotel or staff more highly . They went above and beyond to help us to have everything we needed on the day . It was fantastic on the day from the meet & greet at the front entrance to the last drink in the residents bar later that night . The reception room was so amazing from the chair covers to the food . My guests still talk about the dinner on the day it was amazing and plenty of it . I could not fault the staff on the day the were absolutely fantastic and especially as i have a son with special needs they wer amazing with him especially the babysitter the hotel provided for me , he just loved her . So thank you so much from the bottom of my heart to all the staff in the hotel they made my wedding day so much more enjoyable.

Our wedding day was a massive success due to the dedication of all the staff at the Woodford Dolman . We would highly recommend this hotel because from the moment we arrived to inquire about a wedding till the day after the wedding every little detail was met . This is a truly professional team who go above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly , onnthe day itself everything ran like clock work and as this was our second time to get married for both of us we were very specific about what we wanted , Claire was on hand at all times to run through everything from table setting to menus to the lay out of the room . Truly a wonderful day

Claire, the wedding coordinator, was amazing. She listened to everything I wanted and gave us great advice on other things. She was super easy to work with. On the day itself I would have liked the hotel staff to play more of a part in making sure people were in the ceremony room on time before I arrived. I couldn't fault the serving staff we had that day as everyone was very happy with the food and timing. The one issue I had was they did not give us the option of putting our wedding cake on the tables or with the tea and coffee. This meant that most guests, including myself and my husband, didn't get any cake as it was in the corner.

Hi Aimee, thank you for taking the time to leave this review here. Feedback from past brides & grooms really help future couples when it comes to making their decision on their wedding venue so thank you so much for your lovely comments about myself & our team here. I'm sorry to read your comment about the cake & it is unfortunate that you didn't get any on the day. What we do for all weddings is serve the sliced cake on the tea & coffee buffet table during the afters. From our experience of serving weddings over the years we have discovered this is the most effective way to serve it as it cuts down on wastage, serving it with tea or coffee or leaving on the table just after people have eaten a large meal would mean a lot going to the bin as noone has room for it then. During the evening buffet, the cake is cut up in taster bite sized pieces & placed alongside the tea & coffee so anyone who wants it can get it. We will always ask the band/DJ to announce this fact so people know it's there. Again thank you for your feedback & I hope we can look forward to welcoming yourself & Declan back to see us again soon. Regards Clare.

Couldn't have been happier with initial correspondence and delivery of the day .. all staff were so friendly from general manager to waitresses and each went above and beyond with any request .. still people talk about the quality of the food !! Great opportunities for nice photos for anyone who doesn't want to travel for the photographs .. couldn't recommend highly enough..
