Thank you to The Clanree for making our wedding planning so easy!! We planned our wedding from new Zealand and Annette made us feel perfectly at ease with choosing the Clanree as our venue. She was amazing at meeting our every request and more! Everything on the day went perfectly from being greeted on arrival and being made feel special. The staff were all really friendly and efficient and met our every needs . The delivery of the food was very impressive. The staff were quick at getting the food out and there was seconds for anyone who had any room left! We would both highly recommend the Clanree as a Wedding venue reception. Everything down from the décor to the food and staff was exceptional. Thank you so much for making our day truly special.. Matt and Pamela x

We had our wedding reception here I can honestly say I couldn't fault anything. The staff were very helpful in the run up to the wedding and were brilliant on the day itself.. All our guests had only great things to say, food was beautiful and hot when served and loads of extras were offered. They prepared our function room beautifully and lovely and warm, bedrooms also very comfortable. Staff are so friendly and willing to help with anything (even pinning up my dress!!) nothing seemed a bother. Would highly recommend if anyone is looking for a stress free day. I will definitely be coming back x

We choose to have our reception in the clanree as soon as we seen it. Coming from Co.Antrim we thought it would have been a lot of hassle. Was i wrong, my day couldn't have gone any more smoothly, also the run up. Annette kept me calm and she made everything seem so easy. Everything was perfect. The food was amazing and the decor was to a high standard Thank you for everything Bronagh & Damian

We had our wedding reception in the Clanree hotel and leisure centre on the 17th August 2013, first of all I would like to praise the work of Annette the wedding co-ordinator, she was on hand for everyone of my queries whether it was coming to the hotel for a look around or a meal in the hotel restaurant to sample the cuisine. My experience of planning the reception was made alot smoother with the help of Annette. She made me, my husband and families feel very confident that our day would be absolutely amazing, which it was. The hotel staff in the Clanree the day of our wedding was an absolute credit to themselves, they couldn't do enough for us and the service was impecable.They looked after us very well and I have to say they made me and my husband feel very special. Each and every member of staff was very attentive to everyone of our guests and alot of our guests commented on how good the food and service was. I cannot fault anything about our day,the room was what I imagined and reflected our theme exactly. The food was absolutely top class and there was plenty of it. The attention to detail and patience that was shown that day   was what me and my husband imagined for our wedding day. It was absolutely perfect and I would love to re-live the day all over again.

I recently got married in the Clanree on August 3rd this year and can't express how fantastic my whole experience was from planning (thanks Annette!) to the very day itself.  Staff were so friendly and professional, everything I asked for was met with a smile and I didn't feel like I was annoying anybody.  My guest 's also had a running joke at the wedding and the day after that if you asked staff to blow your nose they probably would as they were so accommodating. Staff were never 'in your face' but seemed to be there when you needed them.  I also had a head chef (fussy character) as a guest and he always gives his verdict on the meal, my husband and I were delighted /shocked to hear that he praised the meal that much that he is still chatting about it and how absolutely wonderful it was!!  all my guests enjoyed the meal but he was the one we knew could be dissapproving, so hats off to the chef as that was a hard task!!!  it was such an amazing and chilled out day that everything was to the highest standard and left me, my husband and guests to completely enjoy ourselves, I would highly reccommmend a pay rise to all at the Clanree (wishful thinking)...  I would love to do it all again and just want to thank everyone  involved for the best day of my life (so far)!!!!

We celebrated the most wonderful day of our lives at the Clanree hotel, from our initial contact with Annette almost 2 years ago right up until the day after our wedding, Annette was at hand to help at all times. The day itself flew by, but from listening to all our guests, they have all raved about the food and the attentive staff. I couldn't thank Annette and the team enough for helping us make great memories. I would highly recommend the Clanree Hotel to anyone looking for a special place for their special Day x

Anita & Mark, August 2013


We got married in the Clanree hotel on saturday 15th June 2013. From the very first meeting, the staff dealing with our wedding were more than helpful and just couldn't do enough for us. Any suggestion we made was listened to and acted upon. We had our dream wedding, the way we wanted it and everything ran very smoothly. Staff were always at hand if anything was needed on the build up to the big day and on the day itself and this was very reassuring for us. Everyone commented on the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the lovely building, especially the staircase and the gorgeous meal, which was piping hot and plentiful. Everyone has commented on how great a day it was, we were able to relax and enjoy it all. The hotel staff also collected up all our bits and pieces, i.e. cake topper, lanterns, order of services, table names, table lay out etc and kept them safe for us until we were leaving, so we didn't have this to worry about either, it was just great. The staff also gave us useful information about photo venues, hairdressers, florists, make up artists etc, which was great as we are not from the Letterkenny area. We would like to thank the Clanree for helping to make our day so special for us and we wish them every success

 A Million Thank You's!! Myself and my new husband "Kevin" got married in the Clanree Hotel in June this year. I cant stress how much we appreciate the hard work and dedication of the management and staff of the Clanree. From the initial show around by Annette the hole way through to the morning after our big day no request was too much trouble for the management or staff. I feel in love with the staircase in the lobby from the first time I saw it and the photos turned out just as I imagined them. Annette was always on hand to help me make decisions,offer opinions and recommended what might work for us.It was easy to see she has many years experience in this field, We were made feel like our wedding was the number one priority of the hotel, which we found amazing considering how busy a hotel the Clanree is. On the day we received a warm welcome at the front door and from that moment on there was always a manager on hand to deal with our every request. The staff in the bar and the wait staff were excellent. Many of our guests commented on how friendly and helpful they were. The little things like bringing out the children's meals first and getting them jelly and ice cream while everyone else was on their main course made all the difference to our guests and didn't go unnoticed. The meal itself was exceptional pipping hot and plentiful. We were all even offered second helpings of main course. All in all I cannot recommend the Clanree hotel highly enough. They made our special day even more special with there outstanding service and willingness to go above and beyond.

Many Thanks, Carol and Kevin, June 2013




We had our wedding at the Clanree hotel in May 2013, up until the and the day of the wedding everything went extremely smooth and stress free. The staff were very helpful and couldn't have done enough for us and our guests to make us feel welcome. A lot of our guests complimented us on the high standard of the food and how friendly the staff were. We would highly recommend the Clanree for a wedding venue.

Paul & I had our reception in the wonderful Clanree Hotel last February. It was the best day of our lives (to date) and we cannot praise Annette (the Wedding Coordinator) highly enough. She went above and beyond the call of duty both on the day itself and the months leading up to our special day. I cannot extend our thanks enough, yourself and the entire staff were absolutely amazing and made the entire day so much easier by your professionalism. We would also like you to extend our thanks to the entire kitchen staff for the wonderful food on the day, which people are still congratulating us on.  Once again many, many thanks to yourself and all the staff for a wonderful and memorable day, it is one we will not forget for many years to come. Best wishes Siobhan & Paul

We were extremely fortunate to have a wonderful wedding day and were blessed with one of the hottest days of the year.  Our wedding reception was held at the Clanree Hotel in Letterkenny and enjoyed every minute of it. From the very first time we viewed the hotel we knew that it was the perfect venue for our wedding reception and had received a warm welcome from day one.  The staff were extremely professional and anything that we had requested big or small was never an issue.  Our wedding planner manager kept in close contact with us throughout our preparation stage and ensured that the highest standards were met at all times. Our guests received a warm welcome on arrival at the hotel, ensuring they were familiar with the seating arrangements for the reception.  The layout of our reception room was perfect and as requested.  The hotel staff were courteous and polite at all times which ensured that we and our guests enjoyed the entire day. The food and the service were second to none and many of our guest commented on the food and how beautiful it was on the day.  I can still taste the baked Alaska, oh mouth watering :-). We had the most amazing day and the Clanree hotel & staff helped us achieve this.  I have no hesitation in recommending the Clanree Hotel to any couple(s) getting married in the future, its just an amazing place to celebrate one of the most important days in a persons life.

“I would highly recommend the Clanree for good food, service and value for money! The whole wedding process went very smoothly and the Clanree couldn't do enough to help!"
Mary & Kieran, October 2012



"I’m only getting round to email you now to say the biggest Thank You for our wedding we had on the 23rd April past, I could not put into words how delighted we were with everything from start to finish. Especially with yourself [Annette] having just been email you for months and every request you attended to with no hesitation and then having just met you 4 days previous you were so professional to deal with and I felt completely as ease having you organising everything, which you did in great detail. The room where the civil ceremony was so beautiful set up and the dining room completely set and I didn't have to spend one penny the hotel did it all to perfection and to think you would easily pay a couple hundred extra else were for all the chair covers and table to be dresses so well.
The comments from my guest have also be great saying how impressed they were and how well presented it was having one room for ceremony and then moving to the bar and then to the dinning room was fantastic and each step was different but so relaxed, the meal was first class and I in particular enjoyed it which for me is a good thing I’m real fussy when dining out but it was exceptional as all my guest have commented, and even the buffet at night was that good i think it was all eaten. Many people have commented to me that our wedding was they best they have been to and it will be hard for people to beat Pat & Elaine wedding and that I have to say is down to the fantastic hotel and my entertainment.

So once again from the bottom of our heart thank you so so much"

Pat & Elaine, April 2012
