Hi Niamh and Gary, we were thrilled to host your special day here at Claregalway Hotel and delighted to hear that you would recommend us to future brides and grooms who are planning their wedding day. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Claregalway Hotel very soon. Kind regards Nora, Paul and all the team.
We had our wedding here on the 10th October 2014 and it really is an
"outstanding wedding venue". From the first moment we met with Nora
(the wedding coordinator and owner) we knew this was the perfect
venue for us. We can't praise and thank the Claregalway Hotel staff
enough for all their attention to detail, the lovely way the room was set
and the way they looked after all of our guests. Every single member of
staff went way above and beyond their duties to make sure our special
day was enjoyed by all of our guests. Our guests praised the prompt
service of the food and drink. Nora really runs an amazing ship there and
no job was too big or too small for Nora and her team. Nora and Oisin
did everything to make sure we were at ease all day and that everything
ran like clockwork.?
For anyone planning their wedding GET out to the Claregalway Hotel
and talk with Nora and I will bet ye will want to book it straight away as
the the packages they offer are excellent value for money.?

Hi Sarah and Alan, thank you for your lovely review and we are thrilled to read it and delighted to hear that you and all of your guests had a fantastic weekend. Looking forward to welcoming you back to the hotel real soon. Kindest regards Nora, Paul and all the team at Claregalway Hotel.
We had our wedding in the Claregalway Hotel in Aug 2014. The whole
experience of dealing with this hotel has been absolutely excellent. Nora
and her team are the most professional and efficient team of people we
were lucky to deal with.?
The food was excellent and the service in which it was served was
fantastic. Our guests have commented to us since about how efficient
the serving of the food was and the level of professionalism shown, each
person at the table got served at same time and there was no waiting
around. In particular huge praise was given to us about Nora and her
team on how quickly the children were served, they had their dinner on
the table straight away. Each table was checked throughout the duration
to ensure everyone was happy with what they got and there was no
shortage of extra food being offered.?
We owe a huge gratitude to Nora and her team, we didn’t have to worry
about a thing and had an amazing day. The hotel is fantastic, nice
friendly atmosphere, immaculately clean and the staff could not do
enough for you. We had an unforgettable day and this was all made
possible by Nora and her wonderful team at the hotel. We would have no
hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone and honestly we can’t
praise it highly enough :-)

would fall in love with and thought we would just have to settle that was
until we walked into the Claregalway Hotel and we were greeted by a
warm smile and a big hello we were then showed to a table where there
was brochures photo books ?
etc. so professional. We then had the pleasure of meeting Nora and I
have to say she is the most amazing woman I have ever met she was so
friendly professional helpful and absolutely fantastic at what she does
needless to say we booked our wedding with them that evening.?
in the lead up to our wedding any time I called the hotel to query
something Nora and the staff were always fantastic and could not do
enough for you so pleasant you should be very proud of your staff as
they are a ?
credit to you, Nora You were always so helpful and accommodating. I

AMAZING and ye made it so unforgettable our family and friends are still
raving about the how wonderful our wedding day was and how fantastic

Hi Mr & Mrs McWalter, thank you both for your kind words and lovely review. We were thrilled to host your wedding day with us here at Claregalway Hotel and great to hear that you had an amazing and unforgettable weekend. We look forward to welcoming you back real soon and thank you both again, Regards Nora, Paul and all the team.
This is an outstanding hotel. The staff, function room and overall
atmosphere is exceptional. From the very 1st day of looking at this hotel
we were over the moon with it. The staff are extremely friendly and Nora
(the wedding co-ordinator) is outstanding. She went above and beyond
from the start. She helped out with things that she really didn't need to
help with, but she was more than happy to go above and beyond. The
overall running of the hotel on the day of our wedding was
unbelieveable. The service was spectacular and very quick and prompt.
Nora was there from start to finish also. Stephen was also helping out on
the day and he is a credit to the hotel also. The value for money was
exceptional. I would reccommend this hotel to everybody ..... i've actually
already got them another booking after my rave reviews.
Room Tip: You will never regret booking your wedding here :-)
Review by Anon
Hi Thank you for your kind words and lovely review, we were delighted to be part of your wedding here at Claregalway Hotel. Kind regards Nora, Paul and all the team.
We had our wedding in Claregalway hotel in august and we were very
impressed with Nora and the team at Claregalway hotel from the very
first day we walked in the doors. Nora and the team did over and beyond
to make our wedding day very special for us. Our guests came up to us
all night saying how wonderful Nora and the hotel staff were and how
amazing the food and the service was. Our vintage car broke down on
route to the hotel; Nora organized getting a toe rope and getting car to
the hotel. She kept us calm and relaxed even though things ran a little
later than planned. The function room looked gorgeous; her attention to
detail is impressive. I actually can’t say enough about this hotel, our
wedding day was amazing and they made it so unforgettable for us. Our
family and friends are still raving about the how wonderful the wedding
day was. I would highly recommend the Claregalway hotel for a wedding.
Anyone looking for a wedding venue should seriously consider the
Claregalway Hotel.
