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.

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. Love Sam and Dis.

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 and Amy,
“We had our wedding in the Clayton Hotel. 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! Sandra made an appearance on the day and again helped us out with last minute changes, with Sandra and Wojciech on the day it added to the relaxed atmosphere, Clayton are lucky with the team they have. Sandra, Wojciech, the restaurant manager to the head chef Edel even the servicing staff and front office reception were great in customer service cannot fault the Clayton staff. We had specific room’s reservation – requests with early check in times and the Connor met our requests. There were numerous guests staying overnight and their reservations were arranged without a glitch. 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. There were no food complaints. I’ll finish by saying the best thing about this hotel for us was we could have our civil ceremony in a beautiful setting. The drinks reception to the meal and entertainment went smoothly. Our wedding was exactly how we wanted and more. Thanks to Sandra, Wojciech and all the members of staff that played their part on the day.”

“We celebrated our wedding at Clayton Hotel Sligo on February 16th 2018. From start to finish, everything was simply perfect. When we arrived the day before to stay in the hotel, Sandra and Wojtek were there to greet us and help us organise all of our wedding things and talk us through everything. We had beautiful rooms to stay in for the night before the wedding and all the staff in the hotel were so friendly and helpful. We arrived to 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 doubt the highlight of the day for all of guests at the wedding! We had so many compliments about every single course of our meal, the Rump Steak in particular was a big hit, everyone commented about how it was just melt in the mouth, absolutely gorgeous! I had the hake myself, and can confirm that it was just as delicious! Everything really just ran so smoothly all day, it was clear that the team in The Clayton are very experienced and work so hard to ensure that your wedding day is truly special and exactly as you want it to be. Every staff member was so helpful and seemed genuinely happy to have us there to celebrate our wedding. We had the most amazing time and we would like to thank Sandra for all of her help throughout the planning process and especially on the day. And a huge thank you to Wojtek and his team for making sure the day went perfectly. We couldn’t imagine having had our wedding anywhere else!”

“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.”

“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. It was a normal Sunday afternoon no wedding fairs needed for us to fall in love with beauty of the whole hotel and grounds. Went in with the hopes of getting a look at the church came out a bit later with a date for our wedding booked. The lead up to the wedding was made so pleasurable with the likes of their wedding coordinators Vilma and Sandra. Noeleen was great to deal with when helping to allocate your room. The eve of the wedding my husband and groomsmen stayed here and were well looked after by the staff and Wojtek was on hand to help take of the decorations for the next day and how and where we wanted them. 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. The hotel is very child friendly and having staff like mention above plus Trevor and Noel should make your stay enjoyable and relaxed like all ours stays have been. A very big Thank you to all the staff in the Clayton Hotel Sligo .Hope to see you all soon.”
Tracy and 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 and Marie, November 2017
“We had our wedding reception in Clayton Hotel Sligo on 27th October, it was amazing, their attention to detail was exceptional, we would like to thank every member of staff that made our day special, function room was dressed to perfection, the food was amazing…thank you Chefs, guests have commented to us on the fabulous food, on the fun interaction they had with all bar & floor staff, families remarked on the fabulous spacious rooms to facilitate their children…..from the moment I booked with you the service I received was flawless……well done to you all it was perfect.”
Grainne & John, October 2017
“We had our wedding at the Clayton Hotel, Sligo on 20th October 2017. The staff at all across all functions took great care of us and were very professional at all times. A special mention of managers Vilma (whom we initially went with the hotel for our wedding because of her profesionalism), wedding organisers Vilma & Sandra, Grainne and Siobhan who took care of us on the day, Pauric who gave us a great welcome and great service at our menu tasting & Voytek and his team, who ensured that everything ran smoothly on the day. We were totally relaxed and felt everything was in very safe hands.
We would speak particularly highly of the bar and floor staff too, who were very personable and good fun over the course of the weekend which helped create a good atmosphere. The hotel porters too did a great job too and were patient and helpful at all times. 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 historical stone building, houses the beautiful, tastefully decorated function room.It was our pleasure having them host our big day.”
Lorraine and Dan, October 2017
“We are based in the UK and chose the Clayton after seeing 4 or 5 other hotels in Sligo as we felt that venue was a stunning location and offered everything that we wanted , what we didn’t expect though was how excellent the staff of the hotel are .
Firstly your wedding co-ordinator Vilma Meenan was a pleasure to deal with, she took real interest in our wedding and kept in regular contact. when she went off on maternity leave, Sandra you did a great job of filling her shoes and we can’t thank you enough for making the transition from Vilma so easy and stress free. You were already prepared for our day before we met for the first time and we just knew there was nothing to worry about. When we emailed or requested anything, nothing was too much trouble and any questions were quickly answered which kept our minds at ease (you worry about the small things when you’re in a different country!).
We came to have a week long stay in January 2017 and were very well taken care of by everyone at the hotel, particularly Trevor who was in the bar when we went down for dinner one evening. In a passing conversation we mentioned we had booked our wedding and would be bringing about 30 guests from the UK over in September and he insisted upon buying us a drink!
When we returned in September we saw him the night before the wedding and he remembered us, he was not due to come in on Friday but did pop in to wish us both the best of luck which was above and beyond the call of duty and a really great thing for him to do .
All of our party from the UK loved the hotel . The rooms, food ,facilities are all second to none and we have had nothing but praise about our choice of venue. Many of our party had never been to Ireland before and every one of our guests wants to return to see more of Co Sligo and all of them wish to return to “The Clayton” when they do.
Finally a great big thanks to Wojtek and his team that ran the day for us, from operating the music to arranging the tables/food/decorations/ they were superb, if anything was needed there were no questions it was taken care of quickly and without fuss.
At one point we asked for a drink that wasn’t available in the Canis Major and were told they had it in the main hotel bar, Stuart was about to go and get it when one of the girls on our bar stopped him and insisted they get it and that we shouldn’t miss a moment of our wedding and they would be back as quick as they could .. and so they were!
Absolutely faultless service . We are delighted to have had our wedding at your hotel and look forward to coming back regularly to celebrate and just to relax in style when we return to Sligo. Once again Many thanks.”
Stuart & Clare Rattray, September 2017
“The Clayton hotel and all its staff were amazing. My husband to be at the time and I went to look around one afternoon and from that moment we both knew this was the hotel for us. We got married in the Canis Major Church in the grounds of the hotel. Stunning and all the guests told us so. On the run up to the wedding no matter how many questions we had or the type of questions nothing was to much bother.
The staff were that helpful that on the day of the wedding 20 minutes before the service my hubby to be remembered he had forgot the buttonholes a 40 minute drive away. In a panic he went to reception and the staff jumped into action. We had buttonholes with minutes to spare. The whole day ran like clockwork. The food was amazing. Rooms fabulous. Great value for money. I can not say one bad thing about this hotel or it’s staff. We both totally recommend having your wedding at the Clayton Hotel in Sligo. It is all our guests have talked about since. Would do it all again and wouldn’t change a thing (other than taking the buttonholes myself). Forever Grateful to the Clayton hotel and staff. “
Mr & Mrs Frazer, September 2017
“We got married in the church out the front and had our reception in the gala room of hotel. Sandra couldn’t of done more for us during the preparations, polite and professional, a credit to the Clayton. The hotel staff decorated the church and ballroom for us. They greeted all our guests with a smile. The meal was fabulous, everyone is still on to us about the beef. They were very generous with the bar extension. Bridal Suite was amazing. Overall would highly recommend as your wedding ceremony or reception.”
Claire and Wayne, September 2017
“We had our wedding at the Clayton Hotel, Sligo on 15th September 2017. The staff at all levels took great care of us and were very professional at all times. A special mention of managers Willie and Lucas, wedding organisers Vilma & Sandra, chef Edel, Siobhan, Pauric & the very proficient Vojcek and his team, who calmly, warmly & expertly ensured that everything ran smoothly on the day. We were totally relaxed and felt everything was in very safe hands.
They certainly lived up to their promise of a ‘be-spoke’ wedding, we got to have everything as we wanted it to be. 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 historical stone building, houses the beautiful, tastefully decorated function room.
It was our pleasure having them host our big day.”
Bríd Brady & Alfie Bradley, September 2017
“My husband and I got married on 5th August 2017. From the moment we booked until our wedding was over, the staff couldn’t do enough for us. Our wedding package included everything you could think of for an excellent price. Over the course of our engagement, we dealt with a number of different wedding coordinators, however they were all very helpful.The ballroom is newly decorated and it is stunning! Every time we went to see the hotel, they had added in another little detail.
On the day, the staff made sure everything ran smoothly; we had nothing to think about. The food was absolutely exceptional and our guests talked about it for a long time afterwards.
I cannot recommend the hotel enough. For anyone getting married in the area, this is the perfect hotel!”
“We had our wedding here on the 17th August. I was consistently greeted by friendly and welcoming staff who couldn’t do enough for us! The service that we got made our day. A number of guests commented on how much they enjoyed the dinner, how beautiful the whole setting was and how seamlessly the day flowed! Woijtek in particular was exceptionally helpful though all the staff were lovely – many thanks again and we’ll be back.”
Aoife and Ricky, August 2017
“We had our wedding in the hotel on the 11th August 2017 after booking it in May this year. From the booking date to room allocation for guests, the finer details in the ballroom the day before & even more finer details on the day of the wedding, everything went great thanks to Witoicz the Conference & events manager who was brilliant throughout as were all the staff including Vilma.
The hotel is large enough to house all guests for your wedding (we had 182) so no commuting involved. We got great value for money, food was fab & staff service on the day was second to none. I would highly recommend the Clayton in Sligo as a Wedding venue.”
Imelda and Mark, August 2017
“Everything was absolutely perfect. It was the most amazing day and every single guest was praising the hotel, food and service all night long. The meal was beautiful and piping hot. Thanks so much for all your help and advice.”

Graham Lee and Kimberley Stripp, April 2017
“We were recently married in the Clayton hotel in Sligo, and I cannot say enough good things about them. From the very first visit, until the day after our wedding, and indeed even since then, the staff have been just fantastic. They were extremely professional and helpful, while at the same time very friendly and relaxed. Our wedding planner Vilma was so organised and helped me in every way she could ensuring that everything went so smoothly on the day.
The team treated us so well, they were just brilliant. Nothing was too much to ask for and no matter where I turned there was a member of staff checking to make sure that we were happy and that there was nothing that I needed. You really couldn’t ask for anything more.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and highly complimented the meal and venue.
A massive thank you to Willie, Vilma, Voytek, Laurie and the staff for making it such a stress free, enjoyable day for us.”
Mr & Mrs Burns, December 2016
“I cannot thank you enough! There are no words to explain how professional staff are at the Clayton Hotel Sligo.
We had absolutely amazing day yesterday. The reception was beautiful, ceremony was so emotional (everybody had happy tears), food was just amazing and absolutely everything was just so perfect.
I would like thank Woytec, Laurie and especially Vilma with all my heart for making everything so beautiful for us on our most important day in our lives.”
