The start of our next chapter
We cannot thank the wedding team at Clandeboye Lodge enough for one of the best days of our lives. With the uncertainty how of how our wedding would turn out or even if it was going ahead with all the changes in restrictions, the wedding team were always on hand to answer any questions I had!! There is nothing at all I could fault the Clandeboye with and for any future bride & grooms that aren’t too sure if to keep going ahead with their original date…DO IT!! We never even noticed the difference with having a limited number or even no dancing (turns out I actually preferred that)

Magical wedding day from start to finish
From the bottom of our hearts my husband and I want to send our biggest thank you to the Clandeboye Lodge for making our special day so magical. Our wedding was everything we could have asked for and more. Both our families and every single guest there on Tuesday 8th June 2021 described our wedding as utterly perfect from start to finish. From coming out of such an awful year and still dealing with some restrictions our day could not have felt more normal if they tried. We could not recommend the Clandeboye Lodge enough the team are truly outstanding. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. We had both are ceremony and our reception there making full use of the events building. We stayed on the grounds for our photos in the green gardens which are perfectly maintained. The food is top quality, locally sourced and every single item served was delicious. If you are looking for a venue to get married look no further.

The perfect wedding venue
We had the most perfect wedding day at the Clandeboye Lodge. The entire team were first class from our first appointment to the big day itself. Everyone was so patient and helpful in planning our big day throughout the current climate and made the entire process so painless. On the day, the service was second-to-none, the venue was immaculate and the food was amazing. We felt completely safe and at-ease in the current climate. Our guests couldn't stop commenting on what a great venue it was - we couldn't have asked for better. The rooms on the night were incredible and again spotless with an amazing breakfast available in the Coq and Bull the next morning. We couldn't recommend the team at the Clandeboye Lodge highly enough for weddings or an overnight stay and we can't wait to come back again soon!

Beautiful, elegant and modern venue
The service at the clandeboye is absolutely fantastic! The attention to detail was outstanding. From the day we booked right up until departure the day after the wedding they treated up like royalty. The food was phenomenal and the beautifully presented. Despite no dancing due to covid restrictions the Clandeboye created a fantastic relaxing atmosphere. It was a dream from start to finish

We would love to do it all over!
We had a fabulous day, despite the weather! The stretch tent outside made it all possible as people could move freely without being cooped up inside when it was raining. Delightful staff, food and settings, honestly just the best day and the compliments are still coming in!

"Undeniably a day to remember."
"After having to postpone due to the pandemic, we finally got to have the most amazing day at the Clandeboye Lodge. Ian, Gia and Lorraine's detailed planning and constant communication made everyone feel special - and safe. The spacious rooms ensured that we were able to enjoy the company of our closest friends and family. Our guests complimented the delicious food and alternative evening party, with games such as Mr & Mrs and Family Fortunes. Acoustic music and more food in the evening under the outdoor canopy with beautiful fairy lights and cosy firepit made our day fun, unique, and special - undeniably a day to remember."

Travel Notes

Clandeboye Lodge is a place apart. Only a few miles from Belfast but fully immersed in the tranquillity of nature. Surrounding the hotel are glens, forests, rivers, paths, meadows and great golf courses, all ready to be explored. Gentle walks to refresh the body and restore the soul. So much to see. Close by is the ancient Bangor Abbey and St. Patrick's Trail; Helen’s Tower, the picturesque villages of Helen’s Bay and Crawfordsburn and the unique flora and fauna of the wonderful Ards peninsula and Strangford Lough. Hidden gems. Of course, you are close to city life too with Belfast’s bars, restaurants and tourist attractions as well as the vibrant cultural life of Bangor and North Down. But first and foremost, this is a place for lovers of the outdoors. The freshest of air, the gentlest of paces, the quietest of times and always returning to the serene luxury of Clandeboye Lodge for a drink, a rest and the finest of local food. Relax and reconnect.
