We had our wedding here on 24/08/22. From the moment we went to view the venue to our wedding day, Emma went above and beyond to ensure it was the perfect day. The staff went above and beyond for myself, Martin and all our guests. Nothing was too much. Everyone commented on the food, the service and

The Clanard Court Hotel was the very first wedding venue my (now) husband and I went to look at. We were amazed by the beautiful surroundings and absolutely loved seeing the alpacas! As soon as we entered the hotel everybody was really polite and friendly. We felt that the lobby, ballroom, garden

and bar had a very welcoming atmosphere and we could immediately envisage our guests enjoying themselves at this venue during our wedding.
Since this was the first venue, we decided to look at some others before making the decision - none of them came close. We feel that it's the staff which make this venue really stand out - we have not seen such polite, friendly and genuine staff anywhere else.
We decided to spend the night at the Clanard Court to get a better feel for the venue before finally deciding to book it.
Once we had the date secured, Emma was super helpful during our journey. She was responding to emails very promptly and always had really good feedback. She is very knowledgeable and just an overall nice person to be dealing with - we felt that nothing was too much to ask.
In the months leading up to our wedding, we came back to taste the wedding menu. Everything tasted so well and the service was exceptional.
When our big day finally came we knew that we and our families will be well looked after. Everything went just as expected on the day and this is due to the fact that every staff member knew exactly what they were supposed to be doing as did all of our wedding suppliers (some of which were recommended by the hotel).
During the meal we were delighted to see a lot of our guests emptying their plates because the food was perfect on the day.
We also had our day 2 celebrations at the hotel. The barbeque was amazing and the food quality and service were exceptional.
And finally, John Kelly. He's simply one of a kind and an absolute credit to the hotel. All of our guests were amazed by the hospitality they received during both day 1 and day 2 of our wedding.

We had people travel from many different parts who have all said that they were made so comfortable and at home they would all be returning.
Emma was amazing, her attention to detail was spectacular we never had to question anything it was just done.
I had a completely stress free few days which not many brides can say.
John Kelly what a man nothing phased him he just seemed to appear when needed and made our day even more special.
Martina and Laura on reception thanks for everything you done for us and our guests.
To Paula, Laura and all the other staff at the meal, thank you for such an efficient professional job. Everyone was too full to move and glasses were never empty.
The Clanard have the most amazing atmosphere and staff for a wedding and I would recommend it to anyone.
Thanks again

We had our wedding at the Clanard Court this summer, and we 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 stars. Couldn’t recommend it enough.

The hotel and Staff are brilliant. The food is out of this world, but most of all this hotel goes way and above for the couple and their big day.
