Our Wedding Day at Cliff at Lyons was one we will never forget. It all started so perfectly with myself and my sister waking to the sound of the resident Love Doves outside our window in the beautiful Shackelton House! Getting ready at the Lyons was such a treat... hair & makeup team on hand as well as the great waiting staff serving us breakfast, as we were pampered, was bliss! After the Church, we returned to Lyons for a gorgeous champagne reception in the courtyard and for our guests who had never been to Cliff at Lyons they were in complete awe of its charm and beauty. Everything about the day was magical, the reception room is so stunning that very little decoration is needed, a few simple flowers and table settings is all that's needed. I have to say that the staff were excellent; so friendly and efficient and compliments to the Chef on an amazing meal. If you are looking for something a little different I can't recommend Cliff at Lyons highly enough. A truly magical place for the best day of your life!

By Fiona and James, on 29 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2017

The venue itself was amazing and this was complemented by equally great staff and service. Stunning venue, stunning food, stunning service. The Cliff at Lyons was amazing and we couldn't have asked for our wedding to have gone any better! Thanks so much to Majella and all the staff at the Cliff for helping to make our day so special!

Cliff at Lyons is the ultimate wedding venue.

By Ruth & Colm, on 30 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Nov 2017

The staff made everything so easy - nothing was too much! Our DJ unfortunately didn't turn up which was extremely upsetting however Katie and the bar staff had this under control straight away and had a playlist set up instantly which ensured peopled still enjoyed the night and danced well into the early hours! The venue is absolutely stunning and all our guests kept mentioning that it was a hidden gem!! Gerard was amazing the night before and Day of - he was so attentive! " It is the ultimate wedding venue, from the stunning grounds, accommodation and function rooms to the most friendly, happy and attentive staff. I genuinely could not recommend them enough. All of our guests were blown away by the picturesque surroundings and said the food was the best they ever had at a wedding. Each room has so much character and you just don't want to leave. I would highly recommend any bride to stay the night before your wedding to ensure you get to enjoy the accommodation and venue to the fullest!

Thank you for making our day wonderfully memorable

It was all we had hoped for and more! Majella treated us like we were as important as a party of 600 even though we were only 6! Her warmth and attention to detail made the day. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts ??

The staff and the venue were amazing. They went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. I found myself very stressed the days before the wedding and they really did everything they could to make me feel better and did. All our guest were blown away by the venue, staff and how beautiful the food was. I would 100% recommend the Cliff at Lyons to future brides.

We cannot recommend this place highly enough!

Hi All, I just want to thank all the staff who worked and helped organise our wedding on June 23rd 2012. The whole day was perfect from start to finish and the venue was amazing and is picture perfect, right down to the last detail. Nothing was too much trouble on the day and I can't compliment the staff highly enough for their professionalism and their good humour on the day and also for the bbq the next day. Our wedding was for 75 people and the place was perfect and the grounds immaculate. I cannot recommend this place highly enough for a wedding both for it's beauty and elegance and also for the excellence of the staff and management. Liz and Steve

By Dee, on 03 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Jun 2015

We had the most amazing wedding here.We fell in love with the quirky nature of the venue from the start.We were worried there might not be enough food but that was not the case at all,everyone raved about the quality and quantity of the food and wine.People loved the venue as it was so picturesque and different.Most of all, my guests commented on the service.There was nothing to big or small that's wasn't dealt with in a professional manner.My friends asked for a ride around in the buggy even though they didn't stay there,the staff minded my sister's shoes, the staff got extra things for certain guests even though they didn't order them. The Village at Lyons is a little bit more expensive than your average venue but WELL worth every penny.Thanks to all the staff who made our day so special!

Every guest remarked at how beautiful the venue is
Venue Service

By Kim & Paddy, on 03 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 01 Aug 2015

We got married on the August bank holiday of 2015 and have to say, it would not have been such a special and memorable day if it had not been for the Village at Lyons and all the staff. All our guests remarked at how beautiful the venue is, how wonderful the staff were and how absolutely lip smacking the food was. If you're looking for a venue that is a little different and very private this could be the one for you. The entire venue is yours once you book, and so your wedding is completely tailored, nothing is impossible. We pretty much had every room in the place booked for us and our guests making the entire venue feel like home. We did have a few hiccups along they way, our wedding planner left the Hotel meaning a dip in service at that time but they more than made up for it in the weeks coming up to the day. They made every detail stress free after that and could not recommend them highly enough. Even after we got married they still remember us when we visit for a walk along the canal or a coffee. A really premium and polished service. We've been told since they do christenings too... might have to think about that!

It was an incredible day!

My wife and I had the wedding of our dreams at the Village at Lyons - staff were amazing, and catered to our vegan, LGBT wedding beyond our expectations. It was an incredible day, and to say we were thrilled with our special day seems like too small a word to describe the perfection that occurred. Thanks so much everyone!

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and help on the lead up to and on our wedding day. Thank you for always answering all of our questions and helping us to ensure that the day went smoothly. We had a great day and all of our guests were very impressed with the venue. We are often walking along the canal and in the cafe, so we may bump into you sometime. Thanks again for everything!
