Warm & Welcoming - Barry & Caroline, October 2017
We were so happy with the way the weekend went and everybody we spoke to afterwards raved about the venue, the food and the warm atmosphere. I would personally like to say thanks to you Jessica for the way you helped us to prepare for the weekend. Your professionalism and positive approach meant that you were very easy to deal with. You were always extremely prompt in responding to any query or question I had.
Along with yourself, both Peter and Sarah were always so warm and welcoming and my family in particular had very positive things to say about them both so well done all. Please pass on our compliments to the chefs for putting together such excellent food and a big thank you to everyone else involved in making the day so special. From Seamus and his excellent bar staff, John who from start to finish was really easy to deal with, to Clem and all the waiting staff (the number of people who commented about the breakfasts in particular). As a finishing touch to the whole weekend the planting of the tree certainly sealed it for us and I know Caroline's Dad was particularly impressed by this.

Words Cannot Express - Caitlin & Ultan, June 2017
Words cannot express how grateful we are that we had our wedding at CJH. It truly was the most amazing day of our lives and everything was just so perfect. Your help, guidance and patience during the planning process was so wonderful. You made it all so easy and stress-free, especially since we were so far away. Every member of the staff was so amazing on our big day. CJH will forever be one of our favourite places in the world. Thank you so much.
A Magical Weekend in January - Marguerite & Justin Marcus, 2016
The happiest day of your life, is a cliché often associated with weddings but in our case, January 9th 2016, truly was the happiest day of our lives and it was thanks in large part to the wonderful staff at Cloughjordan House. We first considered Cloughjordan House because of the pictures we saw of it on the website. We wanted a small wedding with everything on one site. Our ceremony was in the Cow Shed and reception in the Ballroom. I was very keen to show off the best that Ireland had to offer in hospitality and food because our wedding was afterall the first time that our extended families would meet. You see, we live in Melbourne. I am from Clare but my husband was born in South Africa and raised in Australia. It was of paramount importance to us that our wedding be a relaxed affair. We were in search of a place where people would feel comfortable enough to throw off convention and mingle together. Enter Cloughjordan House.
Some people dread organising a wedding from overseas but I loved it. Sarah and her team made it so easy. Every email was answered promptly and every aspect of the weekend just seemed to fall effortlessly into place. Before long the weekend had come. Friday was the setting-up day and as people arrived we were further convinced that we had made the best choice for our wedding. We took over the house and really made it our own. Ladders were borrowed, nails were hammered and nothing was a bother to anyone at Cloughjordan House. Saturday was the big day and no request was too outlandish. There were little touches of hospitality all day. When Justin didn't arrive for breakfast they brought breakfast to him. When there was a small issue with a zip on a dress, Lucy was on hand with a needle and thread. Not to mention a warming beverage to calm the groom's nerves from Peter.
The reception was perfect. The staff were attentive, no glass was left empty and a party vibe prevailed. The food was simply outstanding. Every aspect from starter to dessert was ten out of ten. To this day when we talk about the day, everyone remarks on the glorious food. However, the dinner was just the beginning of what was a wonderful party and a true celebration. When we finally packed up the last of the decorations on Sunday and said our goodbyes we couldn't wipe the smiles from our faces. We had achieved exactly what we wanted. Two families had merged as one and everyone was raving about the most amazing and fun wedding they had ever been to. This was all thanks to the wonderful Baker family and their staff. Cloughjordan is a home and we were lucky enough to borrow it for just one magical weekend.
Amazing Food - Bairbre & Mark, 2016
All of our guests have been on to us raving about the amazing food all weekend. We've had a lot of people say that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding.
