    A Day to Remember

    We had our wedding here on Saturday 06th April 2019 & it was just simply amazing. Everyone at this hotel is a pleasure to deal with. We can’t thank Claire, Tom, Fergal & all the Team enough for their helpfulness, professionalism & friendliness while planning & celebrating our wedding, everything was just perfect.

    Can’t recommend this hotel enough, we fell in love with the venue the minute we walked in the door on the first day all those months ago. The ballroom is just stunning. Thank you all for making our day & one we will always remember.

    So Professional

    We started our hotel search last November and looked at many venues. From my first point of contact with Claire Coughlan I have to say she was so professional but we also got the feeling that she was interested in our wedding and us as a couple. Nothing was a problem to Claire and when deciding on the menu and wine she gave us time and advice. Claire is super at her job and is a credit to The Inn at Dromoland. She never put any pressure on us for anything and was there at the end of an email at anytime.

    On the day itself I have to say the food and service was 100%. The staff were so friendly and super organised. The bridal suite was amazing.

    The front of house and bar staff to the waiting staff in the function room they were all excellent. The day after the wedding Claire was there to finalise everything and she had all flowers,cake etc kept safely in one place and made sure that all was not damaged. Some hotels we have been we would get the vibe after the wedding that your weren't important or your business was no longer needed or wanted . We stayed in the hotel bar until about 4pm that afternoon and again the food, drink, service and atmosphere was excellent.

    To sum it all up we have no regrets in choosing The Inn at Dromoland for our wedding and we certainly will be returning and would consider it for other family events in the future.

    Absolutely Amazing

    We cannot speak highly enough of The Inn at Dromoland's wedding coordinator Claire. She was absolutely amazing at every step, from the day we booked to the day of the wedding. She was so helpful with every little detail.

    The day was absolutely amazing, the food, the service, everything was fantastic and we had an amazing day!!! The staff were amazing all very friendly and helpful.
    Also want to mention Grace Events who work with the Inn at Dromoland in decorating the reception room and indeed the hotel itself for weddings. Louise is fantastic and definitely knows her stuff. The room looked amazing and again no matter what I asked we were accommodated.
    A big Thank You to all involved in the Inn at Dromoland for making our wedding reception so wonderful.

    Incredible Day

    Claire is an absolute gem. We left our first meeting with her 2 years ago totally confident that she was going to help us have the most fantastic day. She is so open, friendly and professional, there isn't a bad word we could say about her. She made our whole experience an absolute dream and was always available to provide her advise and expertise. She is beyond a credit to the hotel and any couple will be so lucky to work with a lady such as herself.

    Thank you and your team for an absolutely incredible day! We loved every moment of it and could not be happier! The food was fantastic and our guests raved about how good the food was and how well it was presented. Seamus' brother (one of our groomsmen) is the exective chef for a 1200 room 5-star hotel in a very well known and popular chain in the US with a team of over 70 chefs working under him and he was very impressed with the meal saying there was very little he would have changed and he is a hard man to please who pulls no punches!

    All our guests were so impressed with the venue. Especially the outdoor reception which they loved. The setup for the ceremony was lovely and felt very intimate,something all our guests commented on.

    Superb Attention to Detail

    We couldn’t have asked for anything more from our wedding venue. I would recommend the Inn at Dromoland to anyone thinking of getting married there. Claire the wedding coordinator was totally amazing and helped us plan and organise our wedding. Nothing was too much trouble for her and her attention to detail is superb. A special mention to the Chef Fergal, the food was excellent, the service was brilliant and all the staff were so friendly. The Front office Manager Olive was so helpful and obliging in helping us sort out all accommodation needs.

    Fantastic Food and Service

    Claire Coughlan (in particular) and the entire team at the Inn at Dromoland could not have done enough to ensure that our day was perfect. Our wedding took place during the snow, and we had multiple last minute cancellations. Claire and the team took this in their stride, updated the table plans multiple times and sorted out rooms for guests. Everyone commented on the food and the service, which were second to none. I could not recommend the Inn at Dromoland highly enough and Claire really and truly is a huge asset to the hotel.

Thank you Claire, and staff at The Inn at Dromoland! I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning a wedding, or just visiting the area!

    Special Day

    On behalf of myself and Nigel, thank you so much for everything you did for us to make our wedding day special.

    From the moment we met with you Claire, we knew we had picked the right venue. If we needed anything you got it straight away. There was no problem too big or too small that you couldn't sort for us, for that we will be forever grateful.

    The food on the day was just fantastic. There was not one complaint about the food from any of our guests - in fact the amount of praise they gave about the food was just fantastic. Give our greatest thank you to the chef and everyone in the kitchen that day. Please thank everyone from the reception to the bar and all who helped in the function room on the day.

    Claire the biggest thank you again to yourself for everything you did for us. We will never forget how special our day was and without your help it wouldnt have been as fantastic as it was. Thank you all again!
