From the first moment my daughter made contact with the Bellbridge House Hotel in Spanish Point the reaction was only positive, helpful and pleasant. Nothing was too much trouble, in fact they went along with everything she wanted.On the Big Day all of the staff made sure that everything went as planned and then some. This was a Buffet reception and the food was excellent, the service excellent and everything about the meal was totally professional from beginning to end.This service continued on the following morning and right up to our departure from the hotel at around lunchtime.I have been at many parties at this hotel and have always found them to be pleasant, warm, welcoming and very professional.Thank you to David and all his staff for making this a very special day in our lives.
"Our Wedding Day"
I am over the moon with our choice. David, the manager, treated us like royalty from the beginning of the planning straight through to the very end. The service was outstanding on the day. We had a buffet style reception. The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. I can't recommend this hotel enough. The rooms were warm and extremely clean. All the staff were friendly. I can honestly say all the staff made it their goal to give us the most memorable day of our lives. I can't thank them enough and I highly recommend having your wedding or any function with this hotel.
“A Very Special Wedding Day”
From the first consultation the manager David Mc Manus was both helpful and professional. We were holding a smallish wedding, 64 guests 14 of which were children. The hotel catered for all our guests' needs and nothing was a problem.The staff were all so friendly and we got to know them all on first name terms. We never felt at any stage that we were getting less than David's full attention. He picked up the phone several times after we booked the date just to see how things were going. Our wedding had one extraordinary feature...we wanted to have our ceremony on the beach. David was very enthusiastic about the idea and gave us a table to use as an altar and an old red carpet to use as an aisle. The finishing touch was that he and his manager arrived down to the beach with champagne after the ceremony and we toasted with our guests in beautiful sunshine on Spanish point beach. It was a heavenly experience, our guests were very impressed and David and his staff did everything they could to make it all happen. A point I have to make here is about the quality of the wedding meal, It was absolutely first class. This may be a three star hotel but we had a four star wedding experience. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.
“Everything about this hotel is exceptional.”
We got married here in February. Our wedding day was so special because of the attention to detail and outstanding service. We were well looked after by David the manager and Derek the owner leading up to, during and after the wedding. We were extremely happy with the outstanding service, food and the value we got for our money.
We came to stay for a night 11 months later and were welcomed like old friends. Again it has exceeded all our expectations. Highly recommend this for a wedding or a break away.
“Wedding in Ireland”
My wife and I decided to have our wedding abroad. We picked Ireland because it was centrally located for a lot of our guests and we picked the Bellbridge House Hotel because it had the best mix of Great Food a Great Reception Hall and a beautiful location, being just minutes from the Cliffs of Moher. And Mostly because of the meeting we had with David the Manager of the hotel. We Visited 6 hotels in 5 days getting a tour and meal at each as we tried to pick the venue for our wedding. And we couldn't have chosen a better venue.
The staff worked diligently with us over the phone and threw E-mail as we planned our wedding in Ireland from the U.S.A. for 6 months. Bending over backwards to help with any problem we had, even those that were not connected with the hotel or the services they would be providing for the wedding.
Then the weekend of our wedding they made us and all our guests feel more like family then guests. Not only Were David and Liz the Manager and Assistant Manager incredible. But the entire staff was. We left at the end of the weekend on a first name bases with most of the staff
And even though I have family in the area that I have stayed with for my summer vacations since I was a little boy I will be always staying at least one night every time in Co. Clear at the Bellbridge House Hotel.
I recently held my wedding here. What can I say about the Bellbridge? Absolutely fantastic!! It is without doubt the most amazing place. The management were amazing, the staff fantastic and the food was out of this world!!! There are not enough words in my vocabulary to describe how wonderful this hotel is... no amount of money could pay for the service and quality we received... if you are getting married go to the Bellbridge even if u have to travel 1000 miles. It is worth it
“This is a wonderful hotel- you'll really love your stay there”
We had our wedding reception at the Bellbridge & from start to finish, we were so happy with every detail. We live in the US & the friendly and efficient staff made organizing our wedding very easy. The manager, David McManus was so helpful & accommodating with every detail. We cannot thank him & all the staff for making our day so special. Everything went without a hitch. The reception itself went wonderfully & the food was really delicious. We had a lot of our guests staying at the hotel & they were all very happy.
Bottom line, don't miss out on this lovely hotel!
“A brilliant location for a wedding”
What can I say about this venue? My brother got married there last week, and they could not have treated us any better. It's in a fantastic location right off of the Atlantic Ocean, and the people could not be friendlier or more helpful. Anything we needed, we received almost instantaneously. The owner personally came by on more than one occasion to see if everything was up to par and to check if we needed anything. The food is fantastic - if they happen to have the potato and leek soup during your visit, do yourself a favour and order it immediately. The bar staff are very fast (a complement coming from a New Yorker!) and all in all the craic was outstanding. Should my path lead to County Clare again, I'd definitely come back.
“A dream come true...”
We had our wedding reception here in July 2009 and the majority of our family and friends stayed that night. It was perfect. The staff were excellent and nothing but helpful, polite and courteous, the rooms were spotlessly clean, the food was delicious and the experience on whole was just brilliant. We have had family and friends return there for short breaks since then and their opinion of the Bellbridge has remained unchanged. Thumbs up!!!!!
“Best hotel experience I've ever had!”
First off, please note that I have stayed at 5 star, diamond resorts such as Le Blanc in Cancun and the Bellbridge STILL gets my best rating of all time! I honestly don't know why anyone would give a bad review of this hotel... I guess some people just have no joy and are never satisfied. So, on with our experience...
We decided to get married in Ireland and so we needed a place for our 67 guests who were flying over to call "home" for a week. Our goal was to find something affordable, self-servicing with a full restaurant and pub, plenty of rooms for our guests, great location and fantastic staff. We found all of this and more with the Bellbridge. From the moment you arrive you are treated with kindness and courtesy. The rooms were clean and well maintained, and they are in the process of updating the rooms, so there are many different styles of decor. The food in the restaurants and pub is simply amazing... so different than what we were told to expect in Europe and a pleasant surprise! I cannot boast enough about the staff... Elizabeth, David, Pablo, Kitty, Ann, Mary, Jessica, Siobbhan, Elijah... I wish I knew all of their names so I could thank them all personally! But they were always outstanding, personable, kind, and friendly and really went above and beyond for our entire group. Every single one of my guests had such a great time and really enjoyed the hotel and all of the people who work there who really made our trip the week of a lifetime! I cannot thank them enough!!! You are all so lovely! If you want a premier experience with a personal touch at a 3-star hotel in Western Clare, you MUST stay at the Bellbridge! And give David a big kiss for me while you're there!
