Testimonials

“The best wedding food I’ve ever had”, that was the recurring comment we got from all of our guests who were at our wedding in the Thomas Prior Hall in January! Thank you so much for all of your help making our day so special. It was great to be so confident that all the details would be taken care of while we got on with what we had to do on the day.”

“From start to finish, the wedding planning team couldn’t do enough for us, particularly as we were organising our wedding from abroad. From our first meeting to the big day itself, all of our questions were answered promptly and we were given great advice and ideas as we went along. On the day itself, everything was perfect – from the amazing venue, fantastic service, delicious food, very reasonable guest room rates and all the bits in between! We didn’t have to worry about a thing. A big thanks to all for making it a super day for the two of us and all of our guests – we can’t recommend you enough!”

“I’m sure every couple say that their wedding venue is perfect but Thomas Prior Hall goes far beyond that. The venue is so unquestionably special that it makes everywhere else pale in comparison. From the hotel grand entrance, commanding tower and salubrious surroundings to the hall with its beautiful stained glass windows, panelled walls and magnificent balcony, there is nothing typical or forgettable about Thomas Prior Hall. It’s in a different league to the conference rooms disguised as a wedding venues in other hotels and it’s sure to leaving a lasting impression in our hearts and in our guests’ memories. But the hotel would be nothing without the staff. The serving staff were always ready to help, pre-empting everyone’s needs, looking after our every whim and making sure our night went perfectly. The team were our knights in shining armour – always there for us, always with tips and advice and willing to do everything we wanted (no matter how unusual). They answered emails and phone calls seven days a week at every hour of the day. We couldn’t have asked for better co-ordinators!”

“We had an unforgettable wedding at Thomas Prior Hall. With over 50 guests from Australia, it was always going to be a challenge to get everything and everyone sorted. However, the staff at the venue could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and they went above and beyond to make sure that everything ran smoothly on the day. When people ask me if everything went to plan, I always tell them that it went perfectly. If there was anything that went wrong, I did not know or even notice it. All the staff on the wedding night were so efficient and friendly. All my Australian and Irish guests had a wonderful time. They all commented on the beauty of the venue, the amazing food and the general atmosphere. We used the DJ recommended by the hotel and he was fantastic. He had everybody dancing like crazy right through to the end. I would 100% recommend this venue (and hotel) to any bride. I organised the whole event from overseas which sounds like it would be difficult but the wedding coordinators at the hotel made it a breeze, they answered every email (and there were a few) promptly and gave me so much information and help. This wedding would not have happened without them. If you are looking for a venue to have a wedding reception, in the heart of Dublin, where you will have a fantastic time, look no further, this is the best place!”

“The day could not have been more perfect. Everyone was so impressed with the service, the staff, the venue, the food… just everything. We really can’t thank the team enough! Management were absolutely wonderful to deal with on the day – they kept us informed of how things were progressing and were just perfectly professional. We can’t speak highly of them, and the Clayton, enough. The whole day felt like a dream!”

Phillipa & Richard, May 2016
