The customer service was 5 star. Sandra attended to every detail & put this bride at ease throughout the planning. She is a natural wedding planner & is such a lovely person, an asset to front of house. Also, who can forget the lovely Voyteck… his humour and attention to detail, ensuring the smooth running of everything is fantastic. From Noel’s excellent customer service, Norma & Sebastian’s scrumptious & memorable food, which guests continue to rave about, especially the slow-cooked beef, yum!!! When a guest who’s a beef farmer compliments it to a high standard, you know it’s good.
What initially won us over to choose Clayton Sligo over many wedding venues was the staff; from being directed to a beautiful, private wedding room to the staff always greeting you by name – personal touch beats anything we’ve experienced!

What can we say about the Clayton Hotel that would do them justice?! From beginning to end the professionalism from all staff was next to none. Nothing we asked for was too much. Our guests still speak about the standard of the food served on the day.
Sandra went above and beyond to calm the nerves of an anxious bride, making calls to suppliers that did not return my calls. The function room is an absolute delight felt like our very own fairytale. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, oh and the bridal suite really is the height of luxury.
Beautiful grounds and rooms, fabulous food and superior service makes your day that bit more special.

“We hosted our wedding here in August and I had to make a note of the outstanding service we received. We first went to this location last year after going to a number of wedding fairs and from the moment we walked in we knew this was the place. We had the best welcome and truly felt like the staff cared about our business and making our wedding day special. Sandra was a delight to deal with over the last year, nothing was ever too much for her no matter how bridezilla I got! I was also impressed to see her there on the day despite it being a Sunday wedding and then getting stuck in not just taking a step back, she even carried my umbrella on the day. The actual day itself was amazing the staff were prompt with their service and everything was done with a smile. As you can see the location is stunning, the food was top notch and the service incredible.”

“We had our wedding here on Saturday and we can’t thank the staff enough. Ourselves and our guests thoroughly enjoyed every minute and it went so smoothly. So to all the staff at the Clayton Hotel thank you very much for making our day special and run smoothly.”
Kerrie Neeson, August 2018
“Had our wedding here on Friday. I could rave about this hotel and it’s staff all day but il keep it short and sweet. My whole experience of the Clayton has been superb. The staff, all of them are fantastic from the first meeting with Sandra right up to the day off the wedding has been great, she went above and beyond to make it the day we wanted it to be, all the small touches meant so much to us. The hotel itself is gorgeous with some beautiful grounds, the food was amazing, all of our guests commented on how divine it was. I can’t comment on the pool and facilities as we didn’t get a chance to use them but we will next time. I could literally rave all day lol, thanks so much guys we will be back again.”
Samanta & Dis, August 2018
“I cannot say enough about this hotel, they made our day perfect for us both! Got married here two weeks ago. Only the best, thank you so much! Sandra, you made our day perfect and stress-free, thank you so so much, also the staff were amazing too, thank you for such a perfect day. We will definitely be back.”
Jonathon & Amy, August 2018
“We initially made the booking with Vilma and then followed by Sandra who brought us through the planning process. This lady knew how to make us feel relaxed with any queries we had. If we were stuck for suppliers she had recommendations, any requests we had, there was never an issue. Her communication with us in the lead up to the wedding was everything you would want. The Day of the wedding was the same. Made us feel so relaxed!
Our civil ceremony was held in the Canis Major suite where we had hired a singer and keyboard piano player to sing specific songs. Wojciech was great at arranging our entrance I didn’t see my bride till I walked up the aisle and it was exactly how I imagined it would be. Every little detail just fell into place for us. The meal was fantastic and served really quickly.
I’ll finish by saying the best thing about this hotel for us was we could have our civil ceremony in a beautiful setting.”
Gemma & Tina, April 2018
“From start to finish, everything was simply perfect.
We arrived at our drinks reception to a smiling Sandra, standing in the drizzle with an umbrella to cover me going into the hotel! The lobby looked fabulous decorated for our drinks reception and everyone was enjoying the Prosecco and canapés which were delicious! When we went to the function room area, I was so delighted and surprised to see that Sandra had put our leftover flowers into vases to decorate the area, it looked beautiful, she really went above and beyond for us. The function room looked gorgeous and they had laid out our little bits and bobs perfectly, we were so happy with it all. On to the food!! This was without a doubt the highlight of the day for all of the guests at the wedding!
We had the most amazing time and couldn’t imagine having had our wedding anywhere else!”
Michelle & Shane, March 2018
“If there were 100 stars I would give it to you guys!! From the day we booked our wedding with Vilma who was so lovely until our wedding day we received nothing but 100% excellent customer service. Sandra who took over dealing with us was absolutely amazing. Nothing was too much to ask of her and she was excellent at responding to emails even on her days off!!! Noel was a pure gentleman who also made us feel so welcome every time we went down and was so accommodating. Our Wedding day was nothing but spectacular!! Voytek was out on his own!! The service we received was fantastic and a huge huge thank you to Chef Edel and team who provided amazing food and the feedback we received from our guests said exactly that!! So guys overall a huge THANK YOU to you all for making our wedding day the most amazing and magical day. We would highly highly recommend you in future.”

Thanks for making our day so special, and for being so nice to work with! We appreciate it all so much.”
Shelly & Barry, December 2017
“Being from Sligo I wanted to show my now husband this hotel due to the fact they had a lovely little church on their grounds that we could get married in, he fell for the charm of the hotel the second we started our drive up.
The lead up to the wedding was made so pleasurable with the likes of their wedding coordinators Vilma and Sandra.
As for the big day it was a truly amazing exceptional experience due to the team of staff. Wojtek is truly gifted at his job, he had it all running like a well-oiled machine. The wedding dinner was out of this world delicious all guest truly full after. I would 100% recommend this hotel to all who wants to get married or just have a short break. A very big Thank you to all the staff in the Clayton Hotel Sligo.”
Tracy & Maurice, November 2017
“We would highly recommend the Clayton Sligo as a wedding reception venue. The staff were fantastic and a pleasure to deal with, both in the lead-up and on the day itself. Everyone commented on how great the food was. We are delighted we chose this hotel for our wedding.”
Paul & Marie, November 2017
“The staff took great care of us and were very professional at all times. We were totally relaxed and felt everything was in very safe hands.
The communication between staff members seems to be good without exception: this is something that can be hard to achieve and points to a well-managed hotel. We felt we made an excellent choice in deciding on the Clayton and we were delighted with the weekend. The food was excellent and our guests were delighted with the rump steak on the menu. It was overall very good value for money for a 5-course meal.
The setting was perfect with the delightful Canis Major church on the extensive & well-kept grounds. Just a short walk away, the main hotel a historic stone building, houses the beautiful, tastefully decorated function room. It was our pleasure having them host our big day.”
Lorraine & Dan, October 2017
