“Perfect wedding venue”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Attended a wedding with my wife during February. The double room was superb, the food was excellent and the MC, David, who over saw the wedding ensured it went smoothly, entertained the adults and kept the kids engaged with magic tricks and jokes.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Booked directly on the internet and got a great deal. There check in time is quite late - 3.00 pm so...

We have held a Conference in the Clarion Hotel for the past thirteen years and hope to continue to do so for years to come. The staff are so helpfull and bend over backwards to tend to your every need. The food was excellent, on the Friday evening they catered for 79 guests whilst on the Saturday they provided a sit down lunch for 140, the bedrooms are excellent and from the minute we checked in we were treated like royalty. I would especially like to pay tribute to Dave and Lily, Lily deals with the admin side of our booking whilst Dave was on duty with us the whole weekend. We request Dave each year as his personalilty appeals to our members who travel from all over Ireland and England to attend, he always has a bit of harmless banter with our members. Lily knows our every need and makes sure everything runs like clockwork. A big thank you to the management and staff of the hotel for making our stay so enjoyable.
