We had a very memorable day for our wedding at the Clanard Court hotel. Emma was amazing from the start and was always there to help with any questions we had. The day ran so smooth for us. John was incredible with service too throughout the day and we can both honestly say we had a Ball and felt so at ease. They looked after everything. The gardens was beautiful & the food people are still talking about. 5* service & a 5* venue!!!

We knew the Clanard Court Hotel was our perfect wedding venue as soon as we stepped through the doors to the beautiful lobby and were greeted by the super friendly wedding co-ordinator Emma. Everything about the hotel, the atmosphere, the staff, the food, how we were made to feel, didn't compare to any other venue we viewed. Every single member of staff is invested in their jobs and even more so their customers. Emma couldn't have done enough for us from the get go. Always stayed in contact and had some great suggestions in the build up to the big day and what a day it was. We had such an amazing day. Our guests are still talking about it. From the setting, the beautiful function room, gardens and accommodation to the delicious food but most of all the staff. The Clanard Court Hotel host numerous weddings throughout the year but they made us and our guests feel like it was the only wedding of the year. They were all so pleasant and seemed to enjoy the day themselves. It's great to see so many people passionate about their jobs. Our guests are already looking to return for dinner/overnight/special occasion. We can't thank Emma and all the staff enough for the most incredible day and hospitality we have yet to experience anywhere else in Ireland. Looking forward to our next visit.

We were blown away from the first day we viewed the clanard Court Hotel and met Emma and the team. We knew straight away we had found our wedding venue.
The run up to the wedding was so relaxing, nothing was a problem or an issue. Emma was always quick to response to our queries/ questions.
Our wedding day was the best day ever, we couldn't of asked for better service, food, accommodation or facilities. Everything was to perfection. Wedding guests were extremely happy and had such positive feedback. John, Eoin and staff ensured all guests were well looked after.

We couldn't recommend the clanard court enough.

We had an amazing day from start to finish at the Clanard Court Hotel.

I literally could not recommend this hotel highly enough. From the very moment we booked the hotel the wedding planner Emma was really engaged and so invested to make sure every detail of the big day was right.

The little white chapel on site is simply beautiful, elegantly decorated and perfectly sized for around 100 -150 guests. It’s a wonderful feature for the hotel and all our guests were in awe of it.

The food in the hotel is delicious, they do beautiful warm canapés and the food for the main event was absolutely fabulous from start to finish.

The hotel itself is beautifully decorated, the honeymoon suite is lovely and very spacious with a beautiful four poster bed, and all the guest rooms are lovely. The main ballroom / suite for the wedding is lovely and bright with one side looking out on beautifully manicured gardens.

The service was impeccable, this is a family owned hotel and all the staff are extremely warm, friendly and accommodating. The were also incredibly attentive and will absolutely ensure every detail of your big day goes perfectly.

Finally the hotel has a range of very reasonably priced packages to cater for all budgets, making it very possible to have a very high quality wedding at an affordable cost to meet your budget.

It’s hard to put into words how much we enjoyed our wedding and how perfect the venue is, but I would 100% recommend this hotel if you are planning a wedding, you won’t be disappointed!

Thank you Emma & all the staff at the Clanard Court Hotel!

Amazing venue for our wedding. I cant fault this place at all. Emma is an amazing co-ordinator and took care of everything for our wonderful reception. All our guests complimented this venue and are still talking about the great day they had. Food was delicious and plentiful. There is great choice available in all packages for menu and drinks reception, people are still raving about the cocktails, we highly recommend these. The accommodation is one of the best we've ever seen in a hotel. Myself and the bridal party also stayed the night before and we had the best time getting ready in the wonderful suites for the big day. Use of the moposa app was great and an actual lifesaver when it came to keeping track of invitations/budget and doing our seating plan. All the staff at the Clanard Court Hotel are so welcoming to all guests and couldn't do enough for us and all our wedding party on the day. I feel its important to add that this venue is extremely child friendly. The kids are treated as mini VIPs for the whole day, they absolutely loved all the fuss that was made of them. The Clanard Court Hotel is definitely one of the best wedding venues to have your special day,

Myself and my husband got married in the clonard Court on thr 29th of March 2024. Right when we booked it back in July 2022 Emma was amazing right from the beginning. She made the process so easy and answered every question with ease and reassurance. On our special day the staff were absolutely amazing and couldn't do enough. No matter how big or little was asked they all went above and beyond. Their new little Chapel is a beautiful wedding venue and made our ceremony so special. If your looking for a wedding venue look no further then the clonard Court Hotel for an amazing day and amazing support along the way.

It has been a pleasure to deal with all the staff, they literally go above and beyond for the wedding couple and guests. The food was amazing, hotel is spotless, the room outside for the kids is an added bonus. The white chapel made the ceremony so special.

Emma, John and Owen in the clanard were absolutely amazing from day 1 upon meeting Emma we knew this was where we wanted our day. She absolutely made everything so easy and her positive good vibes were always there when we spoke. Nothing was ever an issue she guided us in the right direction at all times and Owen also upon our tasting menu he helped us out and gave us the most popular choices to help. On the day all 3 were absolutely amazing we couldn?t have asked for more. So professional but yet so sound we were blown away by them.

We had our day at Clanard Court Hotel on 14th October 2023 and it was AMAZING!

From the moment we stepped foot in the hotel to view it and meet with Emma we knew straight away this was the place we wanted to get married.

As well as the hotel being beautiful, every member of staff were so friendly and helpful. Service on the day was out of this world nobody could do enough for us and our guests and everyone commented on how brilliant the staff were. A special mention must be given to Emma our wedding coordinator she is unreal at her job! She was always there with quick replies and advice even when I was asking questions about silly things she was there from day dot helping any way she could. Emma is a true asset to the hotel!

Another special mention needs to be given to John who went above and beyond looking after us and our guests. He was on the ball all day and night and really looked after everyone. Everything ran so smoothly, like a dream thanks to John. His wealth of knowledge and experience reflects in his work and we're so grateful to have had him oversee our day.

The food was absolutely gorgeous everyone was raving about it. Nobody went hungry either as there was plenty of food all day/night. My mother in law and sister in law are coeliac and the chef made sure there was always something suitable available for them. My mother in law also said it was the nicest coeliac meals she's ever had!

If we had to do our day over again we would chose Clanard Court Hotel every time, 100 times over, everything was perfect.

Emma, John, Eoin and all the team at Clanard Court Hotel thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special xx

Everything on our wedding day went perfectly. Emma is a absolute gem and John a master of ceremonies in every way. Our only wish is that we could do it all over again!
Food and service were high on our list of priorities and the Clanard Court excels in these areas! The ballroom is stunning and with the backdrop of their wonderful gardens it just elevates the whole setting.
Our guests (most of whom had never been in the hotel before) are still raving about our wedding day, complementing on everything from the beauty of the hotel, the fabulous food, the friendly staff, and immaculate rooms.
If you're considering having your wedding in the Clanard Court, don't look any further!

We had a Fantastic Wedding Day at the Clanard Court Hotel and cannot recommend it highly enough to any brides and grooms out there that are looking for an amazing venue with fabulous staff and service!
From our first viewing, we knew it was going to be our reception venue. It was everything that we were looking for and more. Emma was a dream to work with. I was so relaxed coming up to the Wedding Day and I can honestly put that all down to her.. every query I had was answered asap & her attention to detail was amazing. All I can say is she is a pure genius at what she does. John, we met coming closer to the day for our menu tasting and apart from being a pure gent and a great laugh, he could not do enough for us. We had a few very fussy eaters on the day which had me a bit worried and, to be honest, I don't know how he did it but he catered for everyone and they are still raving about the food!!
From Management to Staff, you know your going to be in great hands. Thank you all for making our day so seamless and special & the best day of our lives!

I don?t even know where to start on the amazing service, attention to detail and kindness of the staff of the clanard court.
On the day Emma and John stand out a mile, I didn?t have a single thing to think of. I was so confident in the pair I knew once I got to the hotel it was time to relax and enjoy the day. And that I did.
Emma from the get go was easy to deal with, friendly and nothing was a problem. Kept in touch and helped throughout the year of planning and left my job very easy in regards planning. Her friendly bubbly personality was alway there at the other end of the phone if I need anything. The day of she had everything running smoothly and I owe her a huge thanks for that.
John on the other hand again so helpful, he copped something small on the wedding day that he wasn?t happy with from a supplier, he asked me could he change it. There wasn?t a second where I thought about it, I knew he knew best and he was right.
It can?t go unsaid about the food, everything was amazing . The portions, the quality, the service. In particular the braised beef cheek, weeks on people are still commenting on how amazing it was. I?d also like to rate the waiting staff, they were so fun and helpful and are often overlooked.
The hotel in general is so beautiful. The private garden sold it for me, the kids hut in the private garden, the amazing lobby and of course the beautifully decorated function room. The attention to detail in this hotel is second to none. This is proved by how busy and popular the hotel is in the area.
I can?t thank everyone at the clanard enough for making our day so special for us ????

My new husband and I had our wedding here on 18th August and it truly was the best day ever! The Clanard Court met every expectation and the whole day went off without a hitch. They are like a well oiled machine and I couldn?t fault a thing!
Emma was absolutely fantastic, she answered every single question (and there were a lot) and dealt with every single request without a bother and always so promptly responding to emails. Our wedding was also postponed from 2021 and the way they handled everything through Covid with the changing numbers and restrictions was with such sensitivity and grace for a really stressful situation. They were prepared for everything.
John was amazing on the day! All of our guests had nothing but the best to say about him. Our guests from the UK and America were especially impressed particularly with the dinner service (no spoilers)!!
Everyone raved about the rooms and staff. I was lucky enough to stay in bridal suite for two nights and it was just dreamy. It felt like every need was catered for, a direct quote from a guest was they wanted for nothing and were looked after all day!
A long review I know but it is warranted. I can?t say enough great things about them, can?t recommend them enough for your wedding day or even just a weekend getaway! Beautiful hotel with lovely surrounds and incredible staff!

We had the best day for our wedding at the clanard court hotel. Everything from the service to the food to the decor was incredible. Emma (the wedding cordinator) pulled out all the stops to make myself, the groom and all the wedding guests have the most fabulous and memorable day. Emma is always welcoming, helpful and in great form anytime we dealt with her. She is truly great at her job. The attention to detail and little touches meant the world to us. John and the team who looked after the dinner were great as well. A number of the guests said it was the best wedding/hotel they were at which we were delighted to hear. The hotel itself, rooms and grounds are beautiful . We were so happy with the venue and will be regulars in the future.

We fell in love with the venue from the very first time we visited and even after viewing 9 other venues we still chose this one. Emma, the wedding coordinator, not only made us feel welcome but was super accommodating throughout the whole process. Simply amazing! We received so many compliments for all of the staff, the food, the service and of course the beautiful venue

Clanard Court Hotel is an excellent venue for a family wedding. It was a pleasure having Emma as our co-ordinator and friend from start to finish, as she left no stone unturned. The team, along with Emma, John & Eoin had a warm welcome for us on each occasion that we visited and the same was said by our guests. The food is delicious with a wide variety of options to suite all tastes, food presentation was delightful, prompt and friendly service, all our dietary requirements were catered for. Due to the weather we didn't get to use all of the garden facilities but they are everything that you need. Private enclosed picturesque garden with a children's play room suitable for all ages, it went down a treat. Also the fact you can view the garden from the function room is a bonus. The accommodation is fresh and comfortable, cant wait to return.

Now to the big day
It goes without saying that we had the most amazing day even tho the weather wasn't on our side, but Emma made sure everything was done to perfection and where I asked for things to be.. the food the day of the wedding was amazing..people are still saying how good the food was..we stayed in the retreat suite and the big window makes for great photos.. we loved every minute of our wedding day from start to finish and definitely would recommend the hotel to any future bride and groom

Can I just say the Clanard staff are one big dream team. Our day was fantastic from start to finish. The food was amazing. The grounds at the hotel are beautiful they have a secret garden and a bonus new white chapel which we had the pleasure of having our ceremony in. All the staff were so welcoming and helpful and go out of their way to make your day amazing. Nothing was ever too small or big. I wouldn?t fault this hotel in any way. From the minute you set foot in this hotel you will want to book it. Emma and John are fantastic and will ensure the day goes smoothly and the way you want. All I can say is we had the best wedding day and can?t thank the Clanard team enough.

We got married in the Clanard Court Hotel on the 24/06/23. Booking the hotel was the best thing we ever did. Emma Ferris is an amazing wedding coordinator, you just tell her what you want and she makes it happen. Our ceremony was in the Little White Chapel a truly unique setting. Our photos were taken in the gardens so there was no need to move from the venue meaning we actually got to enjoy some time at the drinks reception. The food was exceptional, piping hot and the service provided by John Kelly and his team was outstanding. Everything about the hotel is 5 Star. By the end we felt like part of the family.

The staff at the clanard couldn't do enough for us on our wedding, it's an excellent venue and you can tell all the staff really love what they do. The pure excitement at reception when I arrived at the hotel to check in the night before was so infectious!
Myself and my partner really clicked with Emma the wedding co ordinator straight away, she is so dedicated and organised but also down to earth and gave us great advice.
We had the believe package which included so many extras, like a candy cart and bar extension. There was beautiful displays for the table plan and wedding cake, things I didn't have to give any thought to!
The food was delicious, everyone comments on the tender blade of beef for main course.
The room for reception is excellent with a big long bar space, doors that open straight into a beautiful private garden.
I'd recommend this wedding venue to all future brides!

We couldn?t have picked a better wedding venue for our special day. The Clanard Court Hotel is not only a stunning venue, but the staff are amazing. We dealt with Emma throughout our planning process and she is incredible at what she does. She really made the whole process as easy and enjoyable as possible for us. We couldn?t have asked for a better wedding coordinator to work along side. A big bonus to this venue is the outdoor gardens which are beautiful and we were blessed with great weather on the day, that our guests were able to sit outside and soak up the sun in a gorgeous setting. Everything ran so smoothly on the day and we didn?t have to worry about the little things, it was all taken care of for us by the Clanard Court staff. Thank you so much to Emma and all the team involved, we had the best day and it wouldn?t have been done without all your hard work. James and Chelsea

We got married here on the 28/4/23 and had the most amazing day ever thanks to the hard working staff. From day 1 the venue have been amazing right through all the planning up until the big day. They have the most amazing wedding coordinator Emma. Not to knock other venues but I've heard alot of friends say they barely heard back from their venue and would have to chase up queries alot. This was never the case here. Emma was always so quick to respond to any emails/calls and even on days off you would heard back from her. It's no surprise she won wedding coordinator of the year for Leinster as she is great at her job and you can tell she is passionate about it. It's certainly not a job I could do.
The packages the venue offer are unbelievable at the price they are. I had friends at the wedding that paid upto 200 per head on their wedding that said the food and service was actually better then at theirs which speaks alot about the venue.
The staff on the day couldn't do enough for us. John looking after us on the day at the reception at meal was so attentive making sure ppl had drinks and everyone commented on this. It didn't go unnoticed.
All our guests said the food was absolutely gorgeous and they couldn't believe how much food there was.
We were lucky to be the second or third couple to be able to get married in the new Chapel and wow it's absolutely gorgeous. It has such a special feel to it and located onlooking the gorgeous green field made it extra special.
We didn't need to add any extra decor to this venue at all as they do it up absolutely gorgeous themselves, that there is no need to add more if you don't wish to do so.
I couldn't be happier that I picked this venue and highly recommend it to everyone to. If you unsure wether to go view it before booking your venue please make sure you dom you won't be disappointed. I can't thank the staff enough here.

The best decision we made when planning our wedding, was booking The Clanard Court as our venue, and here?s why:

1. Emma Ferris, our award winning wedding coordinator, supported us with her expertise, energy and positivity througout the process. She made it all so easy for us.
2. John Kelly the operations manger, who never let a glass go dry, was on the ball with everything, on the day, and exuded calm, even when my speech, may have, run on a bit too long.
3. The rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated and comfortable. They look and feel expensive, even though they?re not!
4. The food was delicious and plentiful.
5. The genuine hospitality and attentiveness offered to us by all the staff was beyond compare. I?ve never stayed anywhere before where the staff were so happy and efficient in their work, as well as being genuinely friendly towards all the guests.
6. The lobby, with high ceilings and large windows, was the perfect setting for the drinks reception. It?s so bright and airy. The guests were delighted with the drinks selection, especially the beer on tap and The Pimm?s.
7. The kids were made to feel welcome and at home: special kids plates at the drinks reception, friendly staff, the kids? cabin out the back, yummy kids? menu at dinner.
8. The Chapel. It didn?t exist when we booked the venue but, oh my, what a wonderful surprise it was. It?s so beautiful and romantic. The setting is perfect. We couldn?t have found a better location for our ceremony, had we trawled all the exclusive, boutique venues in Ireland. We got a unique setting and the ease of a hotel wedding, all in one! I don?t think there?s anywhere else you?ll find that!
9. Last but not least: our guests! They were singing the praises of The Clanard throughout their stay there and continue to reflect on what a great venue it is. Compliments have gone to the rooms, the food and the attentiveness of staff, in particular. A few have mentioned wanting to go back for a stay in the hotel again. I know we?ll definitely be back!

From start to finish Emma was an absolute dream to work with. She was very responsive to all email queries that we sent over the planning stages. Emma was very knowledgeable about anything we asked in relation to the hotel, the packages and the services that can be provided. I loved that everything was clear and organised. We knew exactly how the day would flow and didn't need to make any last minute decisions on the day, which in turn made for a truly enjoyable day knowing everything was in place.
On the day of the wedding, John was fantastic. Our guests were looked after to a level that many never experienced before. Our guests could not get over the venue, the food and the overall service. A number of guests have said that the attention to detail around food service was phenomenal, staff picked up on the small things but it didn't go unnoticed to your guests.
The night before, we stayed in interconnecting rooms. On the morning of, we had hair in one room, make up in the other and could leave the dresses in the bridal suite until we were ready for them.
We had hoped to go to the forest for photographs but because of the rain the days before the wedding it was too mucky. The day of the wedding we were very lucky to get a lovely mild sunny day, we got all of our photographs at the front of the hotel, the lobby and the secret garden and have absolutely stunning photographs.
We fell in love with the hotel from the first moment we visited and having the hotel to ourselves on the day felt very special. I was anxious about accommodation and ensuring that all our guests got back to their accommodation okay. Emma contacted the local taxi services to let them know they would be needed and it all worked out perfectly.
All in all, we could not be happier with how the planning process and the day itself went.

The hotel could not do enough for us. From the day we booked the venue until we checked out the morning after the big day, nothing was too much for them.
Emma is an absolute star and I don't know how i would of gotten everything done without her.
John was brilliant on the day and everyone couldn't say enough positives about the food and service.
The ladies in the Revive spa did my makeup on the day and bridal parties and they made us all feel so beautiful.
I haven't one negative thing to say about the hotel or staff and can't wait to get back for a trip soon.

From the moment we stepped in to the clanard court hotel we fell in love.
We met Emma and just knew we were going to get married here, we went home cancelled all our booked viewings for other hotels and booked with Emma immediately.
Throughout our planning Emma was absolutely amazing, always checking in with us and anything we ran by her was no problem.

The clanard court hotel is such a beautiful hotel with beautiful staff throughout the hotel to accompany it,so friendly and welcoming.

The lovely girls in revive spa did our makeup applications on the morning of the wedding, they were so bubbly and chatty and made us feel so relaxed and made us feel and look beautiful for the day ahead.

Thank you so much for everything.

We had our civil ceremony on site and the new outside space was breathtakingly beautiful. The entire day went off without an issue and I place a lot of that on how well run and organsiged the hotel and staff are. We had the absolute time of our lives and would highly, highly recommend any engaged couple to consider the Clanard Court Hotel.

It is almost hard to put into words how well looked after we were by the hotel. From day 1 , when we first visited the hotel to view the hotel facilities, we were treated like royalty. Right throughout the planning process, the wedding staff were so helpful and accommodating. Phone calls, emails and the menu tasting really helped us to get to the day itself stress free. The big day itself went off so smoothly thanks to the professionalism of all the staff members. A big thank you to Emma, our wedding coordinator and John, the events manager. I cannot recommend the Clanard Court highly enough. Thank you once again to everybody at the hotel for making our day so incredibly special.

From the very first moment we walked into the hotel we both knew it was exactly where we wanted our wedding reception to be. The food, the staff, the homily feeling of the hotel was something we noticed straight away! From the minute we met our wedding coordinator Emma, she was extremely helpful and made the whole process very easy and enjoyable! There was no ask too big or small. On the day itself we couldn?t have asked for more. Everything was perfect. The wedding guests are still talking about the food, amazing! The service on the day was outstanding and every member of staff went above and beyond for us and all our guests.. We both had the best day and listening to our family and friends still talking about it a month later, it?s clear they did too!

We had our wedding at the Clanard Court this summer and could not fault the team at all. Emma was amazing throughout the whole process, so informative and quick to respond. The venue looked amazing on the day (we decided to use the new marquee fairly last minute which was like a fairytale), the food was even better (they catered for a vegetarian/vegan wedding with absolutely no hassle whatsoever), and the whole experience was absolutely five star. Couldn?t recommend it enough.

We had our Wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel in August 2022. From our first point of contact with the hotel, which was with Emma, everything was organised and handled in a professional and friendly manner. Nothing was too much trouble in the run up to the Big Day.
As regards the day itself, there really are no words to put together that will describe how wonderful everything was! The Ceremony, the Reception, the Meal, Service, EVERYTHING was outstanding! It was a fairytale, dream come true day. Every single one of our guests commented on how fantastic everything was. Emma and John run the show on the day, and they do an unbelievably amazing job! You are definitely in safe hands at a Wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel. We opted for the Unforgettable Package, and that is exactly what we got! An absolutely amazing Unforgettable Day.

From the moment we met with Emma, who couldn't do enough for us from the start we knew the Clanard Court hotel was perfect for our wedding day.
Emma, John and Eoin - They where always on hand to answer any questions we had, we where always well informed and nothing ever seemed to big of an ask. They are each very experienced in there own part that they play in the day, Each member of the wedding team goes above and beyond to ensure the day went as perfectly as we dreamed.
The venue - set up is fabulous, we had a outdoor wedding and the grounds are gorgeous. A fantastic addition is the childrens den - we had 20 kids at our wedding and each one loved the den, always great piece of mind for parents that they are safe and enjoying themselves!
Graham and the gang in the kitchen - The food was amazing each guest commented on how each dish was mouth watering. Graham also went to above and beyond to ensure anyone with food allergies where included throughout the day including our own daughter which we are forever thankful for.
Each member of staff in the Clanard Court are helpful, polite, friendly, professional, knowledgeable.
If you are looking for your dream wedding venue then we would highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel and there dedicated wedding team to ensure you have the wedding of your dreams
We cannot thank Emma, John, Eoin and the team enough for helping us have the most amazing day of our lives.

From the very first when day we booked our wedding we knew we had made the best decision to have our wedding in the Clanard Court Hotel Athy. I cannot give enough praise to Emma, our wedding co-ordinator, she has been absolutely amazing from day one. The hotel is fabulous and all the staff are so kind and friendly, a very family friendly hotel. Absolutely everything was perfect on our special day and all our guests nearly two weeks later are still talking about how amazing the food and staff were. I also have to mention John who looked after everyone and oversaw everything for our wedding reception, he made sure everything ran smoothly and nothing was too big of an ask if we needed anything at all on the day. I would highly recommend any newly engaged couples to seriously consider the Clanard Court Hotel for your wedding venue, you will not be disappointed and they will make sure your special day will be remembered for years to come. I am only sorry that we can?t have our special day all over again just to experience everything from that day again.

Emma was an absolute joy to work with, went through everything with us from start to finish with no hassle whatsoever!
Excellent venue, excellent food, excellent service & friendly staff. We stayed for 3 full days for our wedding & it was pure bliss. Grounds are beautiful for photos too. Everyone of our guests has said it was best wedding ever! They went that extra mile to make our day run perfectly!
We'll definitely be back for a break again soon.
Thanks to all in the Clanard Court hotel for their warmth & hospitality

There aren't enough stars for Clanard Court Hotel! We had our ceremony and reception there last week and are just so delighted with our whole experience. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, Emma and John looked after us so well and the setting is just beautiful. Our guests absolutely loved it! We had the perfect day for an outdoor ceremony in the garden it was amazing. The food was top notch as well, and plenty of it! We can't wait to go back for a break away in the near future.

Our wedding was everything and more than we could've ever dreamed of and way more perfect than we had anticipated, Emma is the kindess and most helpful and supportive person I think I have ever met and a natural at what she does she made us feel relaxed and at ease from the minute we met. I'm fully sure the reason the hotel is such a success is because ifs a family run business and you can tell that from the moment you walk in every single person we met spoke to using our first names even the night after the wedding we were so well looked after we never wanted to leave
We would like to give a special mention aswell to Eoin Liz Martin and Tyrone thry were so amazing and they literally anticipated every single thing on the day before it even came out of our mouth the kids and all our families were so well looked after, and specifcally the kids the hotel is so warm qnd freindly and perfect for them between the play room which was a major success but just have that enclosed and safe garden area for them to all run around all right
Honestly can't put into words how much we appreciate everything you've all done for us for our wedding planning right the way thru to the day itself you all went above and beyond and we will never forget how we felt on our special day it was just the most perfect and amazing day of our lives.

Where do we start...wow!! We were lucky enough to have our wedding in The Clanard Court Hotel over the Summer and we, along with our guests were blown away with not only the stunning venue but the most friendly and accommodating staff, truly amazing food to suit each palate, impeccable service and treasured memories that made our wedding day one we will look back on in years to come as the best day of our lives. Emma and her team could honestly not have been more accommodating to us in every aspect, especially as we had postponed with Covid and were then hit with another wave of it prior to the wedding...even the day before our Wedding she was still amending the seating plan for us. Emma was constantly on hand for any query we had, nothing was ever too much for her..I don't know how she does it all! She is just amazing at what she does along with all the Staff at the Clanard Court Hotel. The Clanard itself is just the most beautiful venue full of luxury and class, our guests couldn't believe it and still comment about it! From the bespoke bedroom decor of each room, the fabulous Ball Room that is every Bride's dream with the chiavari chairs, themed lighting and luxury table pieces to the stunning garden with twinkling lights your guests can enjoy before or after their meal, the Venue is second to none and we cant rate it highly enough. We were lucky enough to get some stunning photos in the garden in the evening which I would recommend to any future couples.

All in all, we adored our experience with all the Team at the Clanard, and if I had the day again I would not change a thing.
They made our wedding day what it was, truly magical.

Thank you so much to all the Team at The Clanard Court Hotel.

I can't actually explain how wonderful the service and experience is at Clanard Court.
From my very first contact during lockdown on email to the effortless, faultless two days at the hotel. 10/10.
Emma is an angel. They need to clone her.

John, Martin and all the staff are friendly, helpful and just the hardest working team I've ever seen.
Our guests were blown away. Many have returned for another stay.
The cost of our wedding was SUCH great value. Unbeatable and the quality, OUTSTANDING.
I loved that nothing was too much to ask.
They are constantly updating the property, improving on perfection.
The food, sublime!
The gorgeous outlook from the Retreat Suite and Deluxe rooms. We all felt so spoilt.

I wish we could do it all over again.

THANK YOU AGAIN!

Had our wedding at the Clanard Court hotel on the 9th April and we have to say we had an amazing weekend. From the moment we viewed the hotel as a possible venue we were blown away by the welcome and hospitality we received from every member of Staff. Emma was amazing and accommodated us with all our requests,she was constantly in touch with us and her attention to detail is second to none. Emma, John and Eoghan were exceptional in ensuring our big day went as planned. Emma and Eoghan went above and beyond their duties, helping the bridal party from early that morning, from pinning on button holes to tieing shoes , they were on hand at all times. Our rooms were immaculate and very comfortable. Food and service was exceptional all weekend. A big thank you also to John and his team who were so friendly, efficient and attentive at all times. Honestly we couldn't have wished for our wedding to go any better. Massive thanks to all at the Clanard Court, from Mark, Michelle and family.

We cannot recommend the Clanard Court Hotel high enough. We met with Emma the wedding planner a year before our wedding and booked our wedding two weeks later. From start to finish on our wedding planning journey and the day itself everything was amazing. Emma along with John the banqueting manager and all the staff went above and beyond for us the couple and all of our guests. Both the proprietor and hotel manager were so attentive to us on the day also. The girls in the Revive spa looked after all the beauty and make up for the bridal party on the morning of the wedding, couldn?t have asked for better. We had our ceremony in the purpose built ceremony marquee which was just beautiful and afterwards our drinks reception on the lawn with a full bar which meant all our guests were in one place and this made the day lovely and intimate and private, away from other hotel guests. We didn?t leave for photos as the grounds are so picturesque and ideal for photos whilst mingling with your guests. Food delicious, would definitely recommend the blade of beef, everyone was talking about it the day after. Start to finish, food, decor, staff, everything was excellent, nothing was a problem. In my opinion it would be very hard to beat the Clanard in terms of friendliness, attention to detail, flexibility around numbers/changes ect, beautiful location and value for money.
Thank you everyone at the Clanard Court Hotel.

The venue itself is just gorgeous, we loved the wedding room with the fabulous blossom trees, such a romantic setting. The food is 10/10 and all of guests agreed. Our guests mentioned on several occasions how nice, welcoming, and helpful the staff at the Clanard Court were throughout the day which I am so impressed by and will be forever happy I chose the Clanard Court Hotel as our wedding venue for our special day.

We booked our wedding at Clanard Court Hotel after it was recommended to me by two brides that I knew. We booked just before the pandemic began, and our original date was June 4th, 2021. From the moment we booked, Emma looked after us so well. No job was too big, and she even adjusted our package to suit some of our requirements (open toast instead of half bottle of wine, complimentary family room instead of double etc). As June 4th loomed, it was apparent we weren't going to get our summer wedding. Emma worked with us, and we agreed to move the date to November 19th, 2021. The staff at Clanard Court are some of the best staff I have ever encountered. We drove to the hotel on a number of occasions coming up to the wedding, and have never encountered an issue. Emma sent us a list of dates for our menu tasting, but due to other commitments we couldn't attend any of these dates, so she set up a private tasting just for us. We were treated like royalty on the night of the tasting, nothing was too much. What can I say about the day of the wedding, except that it was an absolute dream. Every little detail was taking care of by Emma and the team. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Our guests raved about the staff, and how well everything went. I would honestly recommend Emma and Clanard Court Hotel to any couple who are looking for a venue. You will not be disappointed.

The day itself was spectacular. Every single staff member went out of their way to look after us. The function room looked amazing. The food was world class, it was very tasty and presented on every plate so well. All of our guests had a great time, and all said to us they loved the food.

Clanard Court Hotel is an amazing wedding venue. We booked our wedding pre-covid, and postponed once. Emma, from day one. could not do enough for us. She was always at the end of an email or phone if you needed her. We had the best wedding weekend and we had no stress or worries because of how attentive and on the ball Emma, John, Eoin and all the staff were. The food was a huge hit with everyone, from the drinks reception, the main evening meal and late night food. There was never an empty glass of wine, and there were plenty of options if someone had other requests. The guests rooms were beautifully decorated . All of guests are still telling us how much they enjoyed the hotel, and had such a good time. The hotel provided a great selection of packages for weddings at an excellent value. We will always be so grateful that we got to have our weddIng at Clanard Court Hotel.

Our wedding day was the best day of our life, to date, and we owe this to all of our suppliers and in particular to Emma and all the team at Clanard Court! We had to postpone our wedding twice, due to the pandemic, and Emma and the team at the hotel were incredibly helpful during this process. They worked so hard to bring our vision for our perfect day to life, and no request was too much for them. The food, ambiance and ballroom were all amazing. We particularly loved the garden area just off the ballroom, which was great for photographs too. The hotel rooms were all beautiful. Our guests who stayed overnight, loved the hotel and breakfast the next morning. We cannot recommend Clanard Court Hotel more, and are so happy we chose this venue for our special day.

WOW!!!
Our original date was may 2020 in nerja spain, with two Cancellations we decided to look at irish options.
Even Before we visited the clanard court hotel we Viewed theIr online Virtual tour and IMMEDIATELY got the warm family run vibe from the place, it was the first and last irIsh venue we visited and it was love at first sight!
From The get go We met the bubbly wedding Coordinator emma ferris and one quick trip around the stunning grounds and ballroom we booked our date!
We did have to make one postponement due to covid and emma made this EXTREMELY easy.
We went forthe unforgettable Package which was unreal value for money , it included an extensive reception drinks list, superb Canapes and a Candy cart too ! Not to mention a VIP reception for our little guests!!

We had the most amazing stress free wedding day at Clanard Court Hotel. Emma was amazing, from start to finish, helping us plan our special day. Her attention to detail was second to none, and she was always so friendly. She always responded to our queries so quickly and efficiently. John was amazing on the day, and ensured all our guests were catered for. The food was unreal. Our guests still talk about the blade of beef that was served on the day. We really loved the beautiful private garden off the ballroom for our photos. We stayed in the retreat suite, which was amazing, with lovely views. The entire team were so friendly and welcoming, even down to the lovely lady who served us our dinner in the ballroom. I would highly recommend Clanard Court Hotel to other couples for their wedding venue.

We had our wedding at the clanard court hotel last month and it was an unforgettable day. The hotel and all their staff were really great in looking after us the whole way through the journey. Anything we wanted they accomodated for us. Everything on the day went perfectly. The food was delicious and service was so efficient. Everyone working at the hotel make you feel so welcome and they really take pride in looking after their guests. Could not fault anything!

I would highly recommend the Clanard Court Hotel to anyone looking to book a wedding. We had the best day ever!

Could not recommend the Clanard Court as a wedding Venue enough.
From the day we booked our wedding to checking out when it was all over every single member of staff we dealt with was just amazing.
Planning a wedding during covid was such a stressful thing but Emma really went out of her way to ease any concerns we had and always kept us in the loop.
We lucky enough ended up getting married on a beautiful day in August but even if it had of been lashing rain the hotel and garden is a perfect spot.
Food was gorgeous, the ball room set up and decor is beautiful and all the staff were so friendly and helpful.
I was recommended to check out the Clanard Court by a friend who had also gotten married there and I?ve been recommending it to anyone that will listen to me.
We had the most perfect weekend, really could not fault one thing.
Thank you again to Emma & John and all the staff.

Everything was just incredible. Emma; John and all the staff went above and beyond for us. We are still smiling, but we will be forever grateful to you all at The Clanard Court Hotel.

We had such a relaxed fun wedding day. We were surrounded by beautiful friends & family with Covid restrictions there were just 50 of us. Every guest was so well looked after, and the food was incredible. We Both would highly recommend the hotel.

We were married on July 24th, 2021 and had our reception at the Clanard Court Hotel. Emma was our wedding coordinator and from the moment we booked, and right through all stages of the wedding planning whilst dealing with COVID, she went above and beyond her duties to assist us. She was so helpful, offered valuable guidance and was always friendly and approachable.

The hotel itself is immaculate, a picturesque ballroom with a private garden off it for you and your guests. Any time we visited the hotel, all staff were courteous, a testament to the hotel management.

The service on the wedding day was more efficient than any wedding we had been at before, despite a last-minute decision to push back dinner call so we could enjoy the drinks reception with our guests in the hotels new outdoor bar area, the weather was glorious on our wedding day.
After our wedding, all our guests had glowing reviews for both the food and the hotel accommodation. The food was 5 stars, and even after our menu tasting, on the day it exceeded our already high expectations.

John the Operations Manager for our wedding day, like Emma was friendly and approachable. Our families had arranged a video to be shown during the speeches, also last minute and John had no issues in setting up the presentation on the hotels system.

If you are looking for a hotel with 5-star food and service, friendly and professional staff, immaculate and picturesque interiors and grounds, and somewhere your guests will talk about long after your wedding, the Clanard Court is the hotel for you!

We would not hesitate in recommending the Clanard Court to anyone as a fantastic wedding venue.

We were delighted to have our wedding reception at Clanard Court Hotel. We were very taken with the beautiful garden ballroom when we went to the wedding showcase, and we were delighted to book a date. All of the staff were so helpful and friendly any time we visited the hotel. Emma was excellent at helping us to organise our day. She was friendly, welcoming and always responded quickly to our emails. John was also very helpful and accommodating. They both managed our wedding reception excellently. They made sure everything ran smoothly from beginning to end.
The reception area and ballroom were beautifully decorated by the hotel. The ballroom leads out onto a beautiful garden area, which meant guests could enjoy a lovely outdoor space if they wished. It was also a lovely space for photographs.
The menu tasting evening was very enjoyable, and we were very happy with our choices. The food was excellent and very well presented on the day. Guests were very happy with their courses, and breakfast was also very tasty. Dinner was also very nicely served to the top table, and the staff were very attentive. The service was excellent from every member of staff, and they made our guests feel very welcome.
The younger guests at our wedding were given treats on arrival, and a play area was available for them to use, which they really enjoyed!
I would highly recommend Clanard Court Hotel as a wedding venue. Thank you for helping to make our day so special for us and our families.

OUR WEDDING DAY AT THE CLANARD COURT WAS UNFORGETTABLE. AS SOON AS WE ARRIVED AT THE HOTEL THE STAFF DID ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING TO ENSURE THAT BOTH THE BRIDE, GROOM AND BOTH FAMILIES WERE WELL LOOKED AFTER. FROM THE COCKTAILS AND AFTERNOON TEA ON ARRIVAL TO THE MEAL WE HAD LATER THAT EVENING, THE SELECTION OF FOOD AND DRINK THAT THEY OFFERED US WAS OUT OF THIS WORLD (OUR FAMILY ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT) .

THE FUNCTION ROOM WAS BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED AND SUITED OUR INTIMATE WEDDING. THE ROOMS THAT OUR FAMILY HAD WERE AMAZING AND OUR SUITE WAS SIMPLY A DREAM TO STAY IN.

GETTING MARRIED DURING A PANDEMIC CAN BE DIFFICULT BUT EMMA WAS SUPER TO WORK WITH AND SO VERY HELPFUL. SHE MADE PLANNING OUR WEDDING COMPLETELY STRESS FREE. THE HOTEL WAS SPOTLESS AND MADE US ALL FEEL VERY SAFE TO STAY THERE.

THE GARDENS WERE BEAUTIFUL AND OUR PHOTOGRAPHER WAS SPOILT FOR CHOICES ON WHERE TO TAKE OUR WEDDING PHOTOS (THE ALPACAS ADD AN EXTRA ELEMENT OF FUN TO THE DAY).

WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE CLANARD COURT TO ANYONE WHO IS GETTING MARRIED. WE WILL 100% BE CELEBRATING OTHER FAMILY FUNCTIONS THERE IN THE FUTURE.

WE WISH TO THANK EMMA AND ALL THE STAFF AT THE CLANARD COURT FOR GIVING US THE WEDDING OF OUR DREAMS.

FROM THE MINUTE WE ENTERED THE CLANARD COURT TO MAKE AN ENQUIRY TO WHEN WE LEFT A MARRIED COUPLE, EVERY SINGLE STAFF MEMBER WE DEALT WITH WAS AMAZING.

EMMA, CLARE AND DANIEL WERE FANTASTIC. WE HAD TO RESCHEDULE OUR WEDDING DUE TO COVID AND THEY WERE SO SUPPORTIVE THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE PROCESS. REALLY PATIENT AND UNDERSTANDING. THEY DIDN'T PUT ANY PRESSURE ON US TO MAKE DECISIONS AND MADE SURE SOMEONE CONTACTED US ASAP WHENEVER WE HAD A QUERY.

WHEN OUR WEDDING DAY FINALLY CAME AROUND WE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MADE FEEL MORE SPECIAL. EVERYONE THAT WORKED WITH US THROUGHOUT THE DAY ADDED SOMETHING TO IT. NOTHING WAS TOO MUCH OF AN ASK AND WE GENUINELY FELT LIKE THE STAFF WERE HAPPY TO HAVE US THERE. THEY WERE ALL GREAT CRAIC! THE FOOD WAS AMAZING, AS WAS THE SERVICE AND FACILITIES.

WE GOT FAB PICTURES IN THE GARDENS AND ON THE HOTEL GROUNDS. WE STAYED IN THE NEW SUITES AND THEY ARE PURE LUXURY.

WE ABSOLUTELY FEEL THAT WE GOT VALUE FOR MONEY HERE. WE HAD THE BEST DAY. WE CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK TO VISIT WHEN WE CAN.

THANKS TO EVERYONE IN THE CLANARD COURT FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING SUCH A SPECIAL, MEMORABLE DAY FOR US!

Where do i begin?

From the very first day booking our wedding with the Clanrd Court, to the whirlwind year we have had and are still in, staff were just amazing. The wedding co-ordinators Emma and Claire were always on hand to help over the two years we were planning our wedding. Our original wedding date was to be in July of this year, and like so many other couples we had to postpone, and set our new date for the end of October (thinking things would be ok). The hotel were so helpful with helping us find a date that suited all our suppliers and ourselves, no task too much. However as weeks went on and things with COVID got worse our new date was in jeopardy. Again the hotel was always in contact whether it was by phone or email to reassure us and help us in any way they could.

The week before the wedding there was so many chopping and changing of restrictions but Emma was always on the phone to me and doing what she could and making new plans. Thankfully the government kept weddings at 25 guests so we decided to plough ahead! The day itself, it was perfect! It was better than I thought it could be given the circumstances. The hotel looked amazing, the food was out of this world, all our guests raved about the food, they really went above and beyond for us even though our guest list had dropped over 90%! So, regardless of 200 or 25 guests they made our day so special, from start to finish. Even the next morning, nothing was too much. The staff from management right down to waiting staff were so friendly and helpful all day throughout.

We would 100% recommend this hotel to any newly engaged couple planning their wedding, you really cant go wrong.
Response from Clanard Court Hotel - Hotel Venue of the Year Leinster
Lisa & John, thank you so much for your lovely review. This year has been so difficult, both on the hotel and more so on our fabulous wedding couples. Its been a whirlwind from start to finish, one that we never could have imagined. We made a decision from the very beginning that we would do everything in our power to look after our wedding couples as a number one priority. Emma and Claire worked day and night from home and at the hotel to make sure the big day was a special as we could make it, regardless of wedding numbers. I am glad to see you felt we did our best, as I can assure you we put our heart and soul into making sure went that extra mile for you both. We really are delighted to read your review and it makes our work over the past year so worthwhile seeing feedback such as yours. Thank you again for choosing the Clanard Court and for allowing us be a part of your big day. Clanard Court Team.

From the moment we booked with the clanard, they were so helpful with the planning and organisation of everything. Our original date was 21 March and the hotel dealt with the whole covid so well. We had our tasting in January and it was literally a week before the wedding when we had to cancel.
Emma and Claire were always at the other end of the phone when needed and there was also a lot of email about rooms etc.

We had our big day with covid restrictions on the 26 september. OUr day was magical. The best we could have imagined. We still had our photo booth and our band. I must have danced all night. the wedding had to end at 11.30 cos of covid but it didn't feel like it. all the staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the whole day flowed so well.

i had used the make up artist from the hotel an they were so attentive. they came up to our room and did the make up of my bridesmaids and myself. i really felt pampered and beautiful.

when the 3 of us were fully ready emma came and collected us for our ceremony, which we were able to have outside as the sun was out and the gardens in the clanard were just beautiful.

we were able to get photos in the gardens after an i also got plenty of photos getting ready.

all our guest thoroughly enjoyed the day and some are still talking about it.

Couldn't recommend this hotel enough and we had a great day.

What can i say... the Clanard court hotel are one in a million! We knew as soon as we stepped into the place that this was the venue for us. The huge welcome and warm family feel that you get in the Clanard is unique and special. We were so well looked after and supported, we felt like we were dealing with friends rather than wedding coordinators. Claire and Emma supported us every step of the way. Especially this year, when we had to reschedule our wedding, the Clanard Court hotel were there to help us through. Every email was answered straight away and there was always somebody at the other end of the phone to answer any questions or concerns. Although they had many couples to help, they always had a way of making us feel like we were the most important ones and that they always had time for us. We never felt like we were a number or just one of many couples in the same boat. We were so well taken care of. We had the best day. Our guests absolutely loved the venue. The staff were so lovely and helpful. Our guests said that by the time they were leaving, they felt like family they knew the staff so well. The food is just amazing. Our dinner was delicious and everyone was absolutely thrilled with the meal. Our package offered a huge variety of food and drink which meant it would suit all our guests and keep everyone happy. The Ballroom is stunning and the grounds and gardens are beautiful for pictures. The decorations the Clanard use to decorate are so tasteful and add such a lovely extra touch. Everything was just perfection from start to finish and nothing was too much to ask from any of the staff. The Clanard Court hotel's attention to detail is just impeccable and I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone getting married.

We had our wedding reception in the Clanard court September 12th 2020 and couldn't recommend them highly enough.
We booked our wedding in December 2019 with Claire and couldn't have imagined what was to come in the coming months. Emma and Claire were constantly in touch with us throughout and kept us updated on the changes and requirements in the lead up to our day so everything was in good hands.
On the day itself John and Daniel were amazing along with the rest of the staff and made the day so special for us, there was nothing that was too much trouble for them!
The room as been decorated beautifully and everyone agreed the food was delicious.
Thanks a million for everyone involved that made our day possible, it was amazing!????

I would highly recommend the Clanard Court as a wedding venue. If you are looking for a personal touch where you feel like the staff and hotel care about your day as much as you do, then choose the Clanard. The wedding coordinators Emma and Claire literally leave no stone unturned in the run up to your big day. They reply to queries and emails so quickly (and I sent a fair few).
On the day itself the operations manager John amazing. He kept us in the loop with what was happening throughout the day and always made sure we were being looked after.
The food was unbelievable. We knew the food was lovely from staying at the Clanard Court on previous occasions and of course the menu tasting. However, when your guests tell you that?s the best food they?ve ever had at a wedding, it?s a great feeling. Everyone was raving about the food and the overall ambiance of the hotel. The hotel is so relaxed yet they can?t do enough for you.
One thing I remember from my day is pulling up outside the hotel before the ceremony and it was raining. Emma and another member of staff were reading and waiting for me to get out of the car with umbrellas. This made me feel so special and in good hands. It may seem small, but the little touches and the way I was looked after really added to my day. They also provided the groom with the family room to get ready in the morning of the wedding at a good rate. This gave the lads plenty of extra space to get ready. They really just go above and beyond for you. Everyone at our wedding loved the day. It?s less than an hour from Dublin which makes it an deal venue if you don?t want guests to have to travel too far. Clanard Court is an amazing wedding venue.
Response from Clanard Court Hotel - Hotel Venue of the Year Leinster
Hazel thank you so much for your lovely review. I think the personal touch comes naturally here because we really put such an effort into every individual that walks through our doors. Emma and Claire have been our stars this year, they have done so much work behind the scenes in making sure every big day was as special as the next. It has been a hard road and with constant regulation changes around weddings it has been tough to break constant changes to couples. John has a great manner and a great sense of humour, which makes the flow of the day so warm and fun, which is what we are all about here. One thing we have always been known for is our food, we are so lucky to have the skills of our Head Chef Mark and his team. He will be delighted to read your lovely words. Hazel thank you again for your lovely review and I want to take this opportunity to wish you both every happiness for years to come. Clanard Court Team.

My husband and I cannot rate the Clanard Court Hotel high enough. From the moment we walked in on our first viewing/meeting in the hotel we fell in love and booked our date on that first meeting. The atmosphere and decor were just what we wanted, very chilled out and classy. The staff were so so friendly and helpful and I can assure you I sent lots of emails asking ridiculous questions and they were always responded to very quickly and Emma and Claire were just so reassuring. They helped us to accommodate exactly what we wanted for our day and made us feel at ease throughout the planning process. We had last minute cancellations and the table plan came back and forth many times due to this and the ladies were so understanding. The day ran so smoothly and with such ease and zero stress.
All of our guests raved about the food and our vegan guests said it was the best meal they had at a wedding ever.
We can't wait to return and enjoy a night there again very soon when we can.

I honestly don't know where to start we are still getting phone calls about our wedding . This venue along with each and individual staff member went above and beyond for us and our guests . From the day we went to meet to consider the venue the atmosphere and sense of complete and utter professionalism from the word get go , so welcoming and accommodating . We wore treated like royalty every time we paid a visit , and the day itself the food hospitality everything was exactly as it was the day we first went. Actually even better how that was even possible but it was . Emma took a huge part of my stress away and no job was too big or too small she was absolutely outstanding and so caring and interested !!! Which is hard to come by these days . Each and every staff member where absolutely lovely and made us feel so so special and our guests too .

We would have no hesitation recommending the Clanard Court hotel as a wedding venue for all future brides and grooms.
Everything about our day was perfect from start to finish thanks to the amazing wedding coordinators Emma and Claire, the banquet manager Gosia and all of the other staff members of the hotel.
From the morning prep to the final sing song in the residence bar we were extremely well looked after and put at ease. That not to mention the extremely tasty food that all our guests still talk about.
From the interior decor of the ceremony and ballroom to the exterior setting in the company of the resident alpacas, the Clanard court hotel really do tick all the boxes for a perfect wedding day.

Hi Sinead & Tomas thank you so much for your 5 star review. 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. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you the very best in married life and I hope we can see you back very soon from Claire, Emma & all the staff of the Clanard Court

Myself and Nick decided in early 2018 to have our Wedding in the Clonard Court Hotel. From minute one the girls Emma and Claire could not do enough to help us with the organising. As the date got nearer any requests we had were never any trouble for the hotel to sort.
Our Day finally arrived. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were so lucky to be able to get married outside. The gardens looked magical and all the staff were great. Gosia was about for the full day till the earlier hours to assist with anything we needed along with all the other staff in the hotel who could not have done enough. The room was decorated lovely the food was superb along with the evening celebrations. We had the most amazing day and have lots of fantastic memories and would do it all over again. I would 110% recommend the Clonard Court Hotel as a wedding venue it was all i wanted and more. 'Simply the Best'

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.

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!!

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!

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,

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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..

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.

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.

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 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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,

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 :)

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 .

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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 clich?d 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

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, 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.?

Response from Clanard Court Hotel - Hotel Venue of the Year Leinster
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.
Response from Clanard Court Hotel - Hotel Venue of the Year Leinster
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.
Response from Clanard Court Hotel - Hotel Venue of the Year Leinster
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 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...

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!

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.?

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!!

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.

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

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 feel this is vitally important for every bride and groom considering that many book up to two years out so they need to have the confidence in knowing that things will be equally as good on their day. Were delighted that you choose us for your special occasion and hope that you are enjoying married life.

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.
Response from Clanard Court Hotel - Hotel Venue of the Year Leinster
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.

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.

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

The Clanard Court Hotel and all their staff are exceptional; they simply made our dreams come true.

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!

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!! ?

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 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

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.

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.

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?
