2023

From our first meeting with Pauline we knew that The Inn at Dromoland was our perfect wedding venue. Pauline was extremely helpful in the run up and on our wedding day and made sure that our day was relaxing and stress free. The facilities are incredible with a fabulous reception area, sun room and stunningly beautiful ballroom which was stunningly decorated. We loved how the band area was separate from the dance floor and how the smoking area is just off the ballroom, it helped to keep our group together for the night. We couldn’t recommend the food more from the canapés to the late night Tayto sandwiches and we had so many compliments on both the quality and the quantity on the day. The bridal suite is also amazing! We are so glad that we chose The Inn at Dromoland for our day and we couldn’t recommend the venue and the staff more.

2022

Myself and my husband waited what felt a lifetime to finally have our dream wedding over Covid. Having it postponed was so disappointing, our day finally came and it was everything we dreamt of, magical from start to finish. Pauline and the staff at The Inn at Dromoland were incredible, so accommodating to our needs and our guests and no was never mentioned. Pauline always tried to meet our needs to make our day so special. Myself and my family first went to stay in The Inn at Dromoland 5 years ago. We fell in love with the hotel and all it catered for especially for kids and we knew we found our venue for our big day. The atmosphere was electric and the staff are mostly young, energetic and great with the kids. We could not recommend The Inn at Dromoland enough for their hospitality and friendly faces but also for giving us our dream wedding.

We can't thank Pauline and all the team at The Inn enough for making our day so special and easy. They took care of every detail and looked after everything. So many of our guests talked about how delicious all the food was. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and every question and request was responded to straight away. We had such a fantastic experience and couldn't recommend The Inn at Dromoland enough.

We cannot speak highly enough of The Inn at Dromoland Staff. Our day was amazing, the food, the service, everything was fantastic and we had an amazing day.

Can't recommend the hotel enough.

From an original fate of 1st of October 2021 to our new date 15th of October 2022. I cannot recommend The Inn at Dromoland enough. It has literally everything you need for our great day. Firstly, the packages are fantastic and for the value, the amount you get, you cannot fault the place!We had our ceremony plus reception at the hotel and it was amazing from start to finish. The decor was fantastic and everyone complimented it.The morning of the big day, my Dad had to be taken away by ambulance from my home and unfortunately couldn't make the big day. The hotel was notified Dad wouldn't be there and they acted with such class, caring and so professionally.We had our beautiful ceremony and drinks reception, which had several options of food and drinks for our guests to savour.The meal itself was beyond superb. No one has complained about it, every course was faultless. The seafood platter went down a treat! We had 70 year old beef farmers tell us it was the best beef they have had in 20 years, so you know the food was good. Another man said he enjoyed the meal so much and was that stuffed he didn't have a pint until 11pmI would recommend The Inn at Dromoland to any couple wanting to get married there. Not only did we feel at ease from day one to the big day, but Pauline and Co listened to our small needs.Finally, a big shout out to the wait staff and bar staff, thank all of ye guys for being part of our day and everyone said ye were fantastic!

Thanks again for everything,

Clare Ryan

 

We had a fantastic day on our wedding day in July, 2022. The team at The Inn at Dromoland worked really hard to make every part of our day very special. From initially booking the reception, all of the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating for any requests that we had. Every aspect of the day was special. We highly recommend The Inn at Dromoland for any couples planning on getting married!

Emmet O'Halloran

  

Couldn’t recommend Pauline and the team at The Inn at Dromoland, they made us feel so relaxed in the middle of the pandemic and changing wedding dates was stressful but after three attempts we finally got our day. Pauline made sure that each and every guest was looked after and the waiting staff and bar staff were super helpful and made everyone feel at ease. There was sanitiser at every corner and even when I had a disaster with my wedding dress the girl in reception came running with a needle and thread, she made sure my dress was perfect before the entrance to our meal. The day went perfect from start to finish, food was amazing with lots of very empty plates and lots of people saying how good the food was and rooms were amazing too. We took our pictures in the bridal room as it was raining and Pauline made sure the furniture was moved and there was nothing in the way that wouldn’t look good in our pictures. 100% if I had to do it all over again I’d pick the The Inn at Dromoland in a heartbeat.

From the very beginning of our planning process we knew the Inn at Dromoland was the hotel we wanted to have our big day in. We were met by a completely calm and enthusiastic team, which made the planning very easy and stress free. We were assured that our day was going to be relaxed just the way we wanted.
On the day we were amazed how everything went exactly as planned with no hiccups. We've been to very few events where little incidents occur and to be able to say everything went smoothly is amazing. We still have people telling us how amazing the staff were.
A massive thank you again to our wedding planner Pauline and Snr waiter Lee ye were both amazing and the Inn at Dromoland is very lucky to have you both.

Paula & David McIntyre

 

We were actually blown away with how you and your staff were on the day. They couldn't have done more for us and even the next morning and afternoon. Everyone said how lovely they were treated in fact. So thank you so much.

Nicole Harris

 

Where do we start? The minute we decided on The Inn at Dromoland for our wedding we knew it was the right decision. Pauline our wedding coordinator is an absolute Lady and always replied to any email we sent, nothing was a bother to her, Pauline goes above and beyond for you and always had my mind at ease. The day ran like clockwork. The food was exceptional the whole wedding are still talking about it, all the staff so welcoming and friendly. The bridal suite is to die for so beautiful. If I could do it all again I would and I wouldn't change a thing. Can't recommend this hotel enough and can't thank Pauline enough from start to finish, she was a pleasure to deal with. Thanks for a memory of a lifetime xx

Sarah O'Brien

 

We could not be more pleased with our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland. All through our planning and on the day Pauline and the rest of the staff made us feel so well taken care of. We could not fault anything!! Many of our guests remarked on the beautiful setting and the quality of the food. The ballroom is such a nice big open space with great natural light and the built in stage reduces the band set up time which we felt was a big bonus to the flow of the evening. The package we got included so much more than many other venues we looked at and really the value for what you get is unmatchable! If only we could get married again we would be back!

Sarah Bermingham

 

Cannot recommend Pauline and all the team enough. They were absolutely amazing from start to finish. Pauline herself is an absolute lady. From the bar staff, waiting staff, reception ect out of this world. Riona, the decor was stunning. The meal was top class. Our wedding day was everything we imagined and more and couldn't have happened without Pauline and the team. Five stars.

Rachel O'Hagan

 

5 star service. From Pauline to the staff, to the amazing food. Everything was absolutely perfect, couldn't of asked for a better hotel to have our magical day.

Nicole & Anthony Hitchcock

 

From start to finish our wedding was so fun and we couldn’t have asked for more from the Inn at Dromoland!
Pauline was there for the past year to answer all our questions and gave us great advise! Our guests complimented everything from the food, location, rooms and the absolutely outstanding staff who could not have been more professional, friendly and just brilliant! If we were to do it again we wouldn’t have changed one single detail it was brilliant!

Sarah Kaghazchi

 

Myself and my Husband could not have been more impressed and delighted with how our wedding day went at The Inn at Dromoland. Pauline was an absolute dream to work with and was extremely accommodating! Nothing was too big or too small. The day went so perfectly it was like a dream. All of the staff who served us were second to none and our guests are still talking about them. A special shoutout to Lee who looked after us so well at the top table. You truly are amazing! The food was INCREDIBLE. Again we are all still talking about it.
We can't thank them enough for making our day more special than we ever could have imagined! We would highly recommend the Inn as a wedding venue, you will not be disappointed.

We had our wedding in the Inn at Dromoland on the 20th of May 2022. We had the best two days there and we couldn't rate the place highly enough. Everyone at our wedding really enjoyed themselves and complimented the food on both days. We had a BBQ on the second day. The staff were excellent and so friendly. The function room is bright and spacious with lovely big windows that had fairlylights draped along with them. Ríona did a fantastic job on the table centrepieces and table plan. She was so lovely to talk to and took on board the type of decorations we wanted. Pauline the wedding coordinator is a pleasure to deal with and couldn't do enough. If anyone is thinking of booking your wedding at The Inn at Dromoland, I would highly recommend it as you won't be disappointed. Thanks to Pauline and the staff there for having us and looking after us and our guests so well over the weekend.

We had our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland in April. From our first chat to the final days we could not of asked for better. We were supported to have the wedding we wanted and was it that.

We were so happy with everything. We had our dream wedding at The Inn at Dromoland. Huge thank you to Pauline and the staff team for helping us with everything.

Can we both say it was perfect from start to finish. We wouldn't have changed anything, You and all of the hotel staff from porters to management were amazing and the service we received was beyond our expectations. Many thanks to the Inn at Dromoland for making our wedding truly memorable

Susan & Gary

 

I could not recommend the Inn at Dromoland enough for your wedding. We had both the ceremony and the reception at the hotel, the rooms were laid out beautifully and the guests were able to move from ceremony to reception with ease which was so nice and easy for them. The staff couldn't do enough for us, you can tell they are experienced in dealing with weddings with every little detail thought of. They are all so friendly and make it their aim to make the day really special for you. The food was delicious and served beautifully, our guests commented that it was the best food they had eaten at a wedding. It is a beautiful venue for a wedding with so many places around the venue for fabulous photos.
We were so happy we picked the Inn at Dromoland for our wedding day.

2021

We had the best day, we couldn't thank Pauline & Nico enough. We got married not knowing what changes could happen with covid. Pauline kept everything calm. We attended the wedding fair where we got in contact with so many vendors. The pictures came out fabulous. We had a lot of guests travelling for Cork & Waterford, the rooms were kept affordable for people to be able stay 3 nights. People are still talking to us about how good the food was. There wasn't a hungry person in the house between the reception and the meal. The fact that the tables were decorated was a massive advantage & looked amazing. The bridal suite was just out of this world an amazing place to get ready as well the morning of the wedding. I am not lying when I say the hotel and staff took the stress out of our wedding, I can not thank them enough for making our day so special. The packages they offer are so good and they really create the vision any bride has in their head. No two weddings are the same as the choices for decorations of the tables & main room is just fabulous. The reception with the afternoon tea effect is beautiful.

Karen Gallagher


The Inn at Dromoland could not have done enough for us on the lead up to our wedding and on our wedding day. After postponing our wedding due to covid Pauline and the team were very helpful and always kept in contact with us.
We had an amazing day from start to finish. The drinks reception, the meal, the service ,the bridal suite were all amazing. The grounds for photographs were also stunning with views of Dromoland castle.
The staff made our day very special and could not do enough for us. We also had our day two at the Inn at Dromoland which was also beautiful. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the two days.
Thanks again to Pauline, Nico and all the staff at the Inn at Dromoland for everything.
Could not recommend enough.

Vivienne Murphy

 

We would just like to express our gratitude to you and the staff at the Inn at Dromoland for your contribution towards making our wedding day a fantastic experience for all involved.
From the room itself and how it looked, the availability of the play area for the kids, the food and the rooms were all exemplary.
Can I pay special mention to the staff who were courteous and obliging above and beyond our expectations.

Erica Minogue

 

 Pauline!!! Is amazing, if I could write a song about you I would. Your attention to detail and your amazing staff made our day amazing. I love how relaxed you and your team made us and our guest feel. You all took on any challenges and there was nothing to it and where so professional. The food is just amazing, we have a large number of coeliac so the kitchen team made everything gluten free and it still tasted better than non gulten free options. "We are all coeliacs" Pauline used to tell us. Even the few tough Cork City North Siders, "everything is better in Cork..." family members admitted the food, the location and of course staff... are better than Cork. WELL DONE TEAM! No easy feat there. The Inn is an amazing place to get married, it has beautiful surroundings for all the photos, Castle... looks more like a Palace in the back ground, golf course, huge kids play ground, Mini Glof, walks... everything you need under one roof. The Inn's Drinks Reception and Sun Room are amazing any time of the year. The room is bright with full hight window showing the beautiful Clare Countyside . The same is true for the main reception, full high windows letting in all that light and views. Even on the dulls of dull wet Irish days, these rooms will brighten your day. The wedding day... let Pauline and her team take care of you both, they will control everything and ensure everything runs smoothly. You both just try to relax, and enjoy the dew mins quiet time Pauline will setup for you both before dinner. I really enjoyed that few mins of peace she set up for us. Finally I assure you, you cannot go wrong in choosing the Inn for your wedding, you have my word on that.

We got married on the 16th of October, 2021, at The Inn at Dromoland. To say we had the best day of our lives would be an understatement!! The food was out of this world, and the staff were just superb. Pauline, the wedding coordinator, has the patience of a saint! No question ever went unanswered, and she was great with advice and support. The grounds are stunning for photos, and the rooms and bridal suite are 5 stars. We felt like royalty the whole time we were there. They also have a new room especially for hair and makeup. It's lovely, comfy and has loads of chairs and mirrors for the hair and makeup ladies. The entire wedding got silver service which was a big surprise to me on the day. Such a lovely touch. I cannot recommend The Inn at Dromoland enough. The prices are so reasonable, and you get the best food and drinks included. I can't wait to go back.

Niamh Conroy

 

We had our ceremony and reception at The Inn at Dromoland, Co. Clare. They were so incredibly helpful to us from start to finish, and I couldn’t recommend them enough. From our first meeting with the wedding coordinator Claire, we found her very lovely and so accommodating. Even during a changeover in wedding coordinators, the whole journey was seamless. Pauline looked after us for the latter half of our planning on the run-up to the big day, and she was extremely helpful also. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The waiting bar and reception staff would always greet us with a big smile. We had our ceremony in the Ballyhannon Suite (Ballroom) of the hotel. The set-up was amazing. It looked out onto the garden, which made a beautiful backdrop. We then had our arrivals reception in the Sun Lounge and lobby, which have the most beautiful decor, while the hotel rearranged the ballroom for the evening reception. It was brilliant to make use of the different spaces in the hotel and wonderful surroundings. Our package included some decor. Through contact with Riona, who decorated both our ceremony space and reception, we were able to add some personalised touches to show our personalities. She was very accommodating and loved the ideas we had. She had a wide array of stock that we could choose from to get the look we wanted. Overall, the place looked amazing. The meal itself was gorgeous, and all our guests enjoyed the food. I particularly enjoyed the silver service "reveal" of the main course. We all felt so important! As I said at the beginning, I have nothing but good things to say about our experience at our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland. We would highly recommend them to any couples planning their big day.

Aisling McNamara

 

Our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland really was the best day ever, thanks to Pauline and all the staff. From our original meeting with Claire, and having to move our date due to covid, Pauline and all the staff could not do enough to make sure everything went perfectly. They made everything so easy. Everything was perfect! The reception room was stunning and the food was amazing. Everyone was complimenting it, as well as all the staff working. Most of our guests stayed in the hotel for three days and they (as well as ourselves) couldn't compliment every member of staff enough. The service, the food, everything was absolutely fantastic.
We would absolutely recommend The Inn at Dromoland to any couple looking for the perfect wedding venue. Thanks again to Pauline and all the staff for the best day and weekend!

Aileen Kavanagh

 

The Inn at Dromoland is an absolutely amazing venue from start to finish. Pauline was so accommodating and just amazing. She made our day go so smooth with no glitches. Everything was just perfect. The room was absolutely stunning, we couldn't fault anything at all. Thanks to all the staff at The Inn at Dromoland for making our day so special.

Edwina Meade

 

We held our wedding reception at The Inn at Dromoland. We were dealing with Pauline and Claire. They couldn't do enough for us, even in a difficult time during covid where we were unsure of our numbers. On the wedding day, the staff at the hotel were very friendly and made us feel welcome. They made sure it all ran smoothly for us. I would definitely recommend The Inn at Dromoland to future couples.

Melissa Mahony

 

We booked our wedding at The Inn at Dromoland, in Decmeber 2019. Due to the pandemic, we had to move our date four times. From the first day we met the staff at The Inn at Dromoland, we were treated and looked after exemplary. With all the moving dates, there was never an issue, with Claire and Pauline ringing our other suppliers to make sure dates worked. The lead up to our wedding went so smoothly, we were in regular contact with Pauline. She left no stone unturned in the planning of the day. Everything was covered, from meal tasting, to decor, to music, to accommodations. Our wedding day was such a great day. Everything went off without a hitch. So much so that our guests have been raving about it ever since. The staff were excellent and were well trained in covid protocols. The service was excellent and we always felt the hotel couldn't do enough for us. We will most certainly be recommending our friends to contact The Inn at Dromoland in the future when their weddings come around.

Ger Coleman

 

As a COVID bride, amongst a lot of others, I have had to reschedule our date four times, and I have to say the service and hospitality that was received from the Inn at Dromoland was second to none. They made everything so stress free, which was a blessing, and nothing was an issue. After finally having had our wedding celebration, I cannot recommend the hotel and staff highly enough. The welcoming, not just for us, but our families and friends was amazing, food was five stars, as was the service received throughout the weekend. The grounds that surround the hotel are perfect for photos. The location and size of the hotel is ideal for any wedding of any size. I would highly recommend the Inn at Dromoland for your wedding venue.
