On the 10th of October in Bord Bia, Dublin, the Clanard Court Hotel proudly received the accolade of Business Hotel of The Year from Georgina Campbell for her Irish Food & Hospitality Awards 2023.

Georgina Campbell said:

Arriving at the Fennin family’s well-presented purpose-built 4-star on the edge of town is sure to put a smile on your face – how many hotels say welcome with a grassy enclosure where exotic animals like Jacob sheep and alpacas happily graze? While especially famed for weddings, this deservedly popular community favourite is also an excellent business destination, catering for anything from 20 to 450 delegates in a range of suites and offering both indoor and outdoor on-site team building and corporate events, as well as all the latest equipment for conferences and business meetings. Add great locally produced food, super staff, good value and the convenience of the location – only an hour from Dublin airport and easily accessible from any part of the country – and its appeal is very easy to understand.
