Hotel's Favourite
We as a group of 9 girls stayed here for one night as a getaway break and celebrating our friends birthday. To say the least we have an amazing time in the hotel and with the staff. Starting that morning with the train from Dublin to Athy in 50mins and €10 each way is a no brainer. From the station is is only a 20min walk. We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by Martina, Lori and Amanda who were professional and courteous to us throughout the check -in. Later we had lunch in the bistro bar were we met John & Brian and the bar staff Chloe, Tyrone and Glen who waited on us at our every need, they just couldn't do enough for us and the food was delish. The rooms for sharing (3 in 1) are fantastic in size, plenty of room, they were spotless clean with everything arranged for your use. I would like to give a special thank you to Marie and Inga the two cleaning ladies who were ever so friendly and chatty for all their hard work as it is not easy cleaning up after 9 mad women on the loose ! Overall the hotel is a great little place to unwind and leave the hustle & bustle of the city behind. The hotel staff are so accommodating and made us feel so welcome that we didn't want to go home.. thank you Clonard Court Hotel for memorable stay!!!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our trip advisor followers. You were a great lively bunch and we thoroughly enjoyed having you all stay with us. A little sunshine after a long bleak lockdown!! . It was great to hear laughter and high spirits in the hotel again, all the staff you mentioned thoroughly enjoyed looking after you all and look forward to your return. Hope you all have a great summer and enjoy many more girly weekends away - Food for the soul. Best Wishes Mary and Team

The hotel is very nice. I stayed 3 nights and would go back again. The biggest thing for me was the staff. I was very impressed. They were very pleasant and very efficient. I had this experience at breakfast and dinner and reception too!
