We had our wedding here in August and received the best service ever. The hotel itself is lovely. The room we had was amazing, rose petals on the bed and champagne for breakfast, and our guests were very happy with their rooms too. From the moment we booked our wedding here a year previously Nora was on call to answer any questions I had. On the big day she was the most organised person I have ever met-so professional. We had a fantastic day and everything was planned to perfection by Nora. We were even early at the hotel, as photos took less time than expected, and Nora still had us and our guests seated promptly. The food was fantastic. All the guests were so impressed. The food is of an extremely high standard. We had guests from Poland and Nora had menus printed in Polish for them and assigned their table a Polish waiter-such a lovely touch. Nora and her staff made our day so special with many simple and elegant touches that made us feel really special. All my family and friends still rave about the fantastic atmosphere and the amazing food. Top class venue.

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 :-)
- Hey guys,
We just back to reality after our wedding we had with ye in March and I couldn't leave it any longer to express our thanks and gratitude to all the staff at the Claregalway hotel but specially to the superwoman herself Nora and her sidekicks Dara and Stephen
When we got engaged in January 2013 we really had no idea where we wanted to hold the reception for the big day! We got in touch with hotels in Galway that were available for Paddy’s weekend 2014. Our first stop was meeting Nora at the Claregalway Hotel and woooow did she set the bar high for all the hotels that day. Nora welcomed us both and our parents that came along with us, and just after we met, a member of your staff approached us with a glass a bubbly and a big smile saying "Congrats on your engagement from everyone here at the Claregalway", a little touch but made us feel super special! Your advice and support was amazing - you even told us what to ask in other hotels and what to look out for. We went to 3 other hotels that afternoon and not one of them congratulated us on getting engaged. One hotel even ignored Dara (they were marked off the list straight away!!)
But that evening we decided that there was no other hotel that we were interested in and it was all because of the detail of care, professionalism and support that we got from Nora. We are both living in London and were obviously a little worried that we would not be able to call into the hotel from time to time to make sure everything is on course but we shouldn’t have worried about this at all. From the moment that we booked the hotel, Nora was amazing. Any time of the day, and day of the week Nora was always available to answer any questions we had, or give us her advice on items we were unsure about.
The day of the wedding we were treated like complete royalty. On arrival all the wedding party were greeted with bubbly and a very warm welcome from Nora and her colleague Stephen.
Nora took our photo and had our picture on the menus for our guests as well as a coloured print displayed at reception for everyone to see on their way to the reception suite. Every little detail was taking care of and meant so much to us. The food was amazing, I was slightly nervous that I wouldn't be able to eat, but we found ourselves asking for seconds because it was just so amazing. All our guests have been raving how amazing the food was, one of our guests said "All the plates were hot, never mind the food" another said "Well it’s the first wedding that I have been to that you can actually enjoy the food, it’s so nice when the vegetables are actually cooked". I know Nora was busy going to a few of the tables cause a lot of the guests were asking for her as they wanted to send their regards to the chef cause they enjoyed the meal so much.
We honestly have had so many of our guests come to us thanking us for such an amazing day, the food, the music and the atmosphere. But we can't take any of that praise cause it all started with all your guys at the Claregalway hotel, all your staff were so friendly and happy and professional, then your food was just mouth-watering amazing that even the grumpiest of people would have been in a good mood and enjoyed the rest of the day after it
Later in the night Dara and Stephen took over from Nora, and they were amazing to us. They kept coming to me and asking if there was anything that we needed, and the only thing I needed was time to slow down cause the evening was going so quickly.
All the days leading up to the wedding, the tasting menu, the day before when we dropped off everything, the day, the night and early morning of the wedding, and the day and night after the wedding from the bottom of our hearts thank you so much for making it the most amazing weekend of our lives
There are no words that will ever cover how thankful, grateful and delighted that we picked the Claregalway hotel for our wedding day. Every single member of staff are a credit to ye, but special thanks has to go to Nora, Dara and Stephen for being so amazing
We will pop in anytime we are home and would recommend the Claregalway to everyone of our friends that are planning to get married or far any type of occasion!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
Dara O'Neill & Mary Daly
