“Loved this place”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

Great location for us since we had family that lived in Athy. Hotel was clean, staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make sure you enjoyed your stay. Service in the restaurant and bar was awesome, loved the food. Just on the edge of town and quick access to the major roads.

I would just like to share what myself and my new husband experienced at the clanard court for our wedding yesterday. From the moment we set foot out of the car they were just beyond amazing. The hotel staff could not do enough for us. They made the day go seamless. We used the private gardens for our photos which are beautiful. The food was just impeccable, no other words to describe it. The manager was just brilliant and a real credit to the hotel. We could not recommend the hotel enough.

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!

Recently spent a wedding reception and a night in this hotel. Gorgeous building just outside of Dublin with great parking. They went all out for my families wedding and could not do enough seemingly. Food was tasty and staff very attentive. Definitely a location to be kept in mind if your planning a wedding reception. Also, the car park borders private land full of animals (Emus/llamas and sheep), kids were fascinated. Great overall experience.

Picture the scene, you are newly engaged and walking on air! Then the planning starts, you visit hotel after hotel where a napkin costs €2, each candle costs €3 and your guests have to pay €10 for parking! Then, out of all the madness, you find The Clanard Court Hotel. The pictures look good and the packages seem very reasonable so you go for a visit.

As soon as we pulled up to the hotel we fell in love with it! The staff were SO welcoming, friendly and helpful! Nothing was a problem or an issue, and best of all, everything was inclusive. No €2 extra for menus or €50 flowers for the tables! So we booked and it only got better.

Throughout the run up to our wedding, Claire and her team were there every step of the way. We used to love having any reason to call into the hotel, which always had to be around lunch so we could avail of the lovely lunch menu!

Then the big day arrived! We were met with champaign and red carpet, all our guest were thoroughly looked after. We had planned to have our pictures taken outside but sadly it started to rain, but the staff quickly rearranged some furniture to allow for the photos to be taken inside which turned out lovely.
The dinner felt like a show, with a little surprise for the top table! The food was stunning, very generous helpings and well presented. The evening buffet went down very well, particularly as some sandwiches were kept back for 2am!

We can not speak highly enough about this hotel and we will defiantly be booking for a weekend next year to remember the wonderful wedding weekend we had. The only bad thing was it went too fast!

Thanks a million to all the staff at the Clanard Court!

We stayed here last weekend, for one night plus evening meal. It was a 40th birthday celebration with my sisters-in-law. the hotel was absolutely lovely, very welcoming, clean and comfortable.
it was quite busy as there were First Communion parties there on the day, but the service in the bar area for food etc was quite good.
The evening meal was one of the nicest I've had in a hotel. I find hotels' food tend to be a bit basic and bland, but this was gorgeous. the service was excellent, the waitress even located candles for us for the cake as we'd forgotten them.
One small gripe - none of our room phones seemed to be working. I opened a window which I later couldn't close, it seemed to be stuck. I had to go the the reception desk late in the evening to report it because the phone wasn't working, but having said that, a staff member came up within minutes to fix the window.
I would definitely recommend this hotel - we got it for a discount price and it was worth every penny and more.
