We stayed here one night mid week, beautiful hotel. We arrived late but could still get food in bar up until 9.30. The pizza was amazing!! Nice comfortable rooms and lovely staff. My kids would have loved a pool, but other than that had no complaints, we would definitely be back.

A beautiful hotel, spacious comfortable and very clean rooms. Delicious dinner and breakfast. All staff were welcoming, professional and extremely pleasant. Altogether a most enjoyable experience

We stayed overnight on Mothers day although hotel was very very busy we were looked after straight away booking in was quick and easy. Rooms were nice and spacious as there were three of us. We had a lovely dinner and a couple of drinks and a great time was had by all of us we would happily return to this hotel.

My Mum, sister and I really enjoyed our one night stay here at the Clanard Court. The staff are really friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. We had a treatment in the Revive treatment area on the second day. This area is small, with two armchairs and two footrests in the relaxation area. It is very nice, though, and Emma, the therapist, was very professional and friendly. We took a trip to Kildare village, which was about 20 minutes away. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful Hotel, Great, big, comfortable, clean rooms, excellent food & very good staff, treat yourself to a two night stay (1 night is not enough) & you will not regret it - we have stayed here three times over a 5 year time span & the same standards applied every time, so they are consistently good at what they do - we can't wait to get back to our little haven from the Madding Crowds!!

I could not find fault with this hotel, from the moment we arrived we we were made to feel very welcome. the rooms are lovely and spacious and the food was fabulous. The bar was very relaxed and we were made to feel very comfortable and relaxed from start to finish, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed in the Clanard Court on Friday 2nd June as I was celebrating a special occasion with my sister. As always we had a wonderful visit. The hotel is so relaxing, welcoming, warm and friendly staff in attendance throughout our stay. The food was fabulous I had the Seabass and Salmon dish which I will be back for once again and compliments to the chef. My sister is vegetarian and the chef never disappoints. I can only highly recommend the Clanard Court and I look forward to my next visit.

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay in the Clanard Court Hotel. Staff as ever could not be more helpful. Food was fab as usual. I cannot fault the lovely atmosphere and delightful staff in Clanard Court and I look forward to my next stay.

Posted by Lorraine on the 6th of March 2017. This was my second time to stay in the Clanard Court hotel with my sister for a short weekend break. We were delighted with our room which was very big and spacious, and very clean with all the accessories that we needed. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and attentive both at check-in time and during our dining experience at dinner in the restaurant and breakfast the following morning. The food in the hotel was very good, and my sister commented that her fish dish (for dinner) was excellent, and she was very pleased with the quality of the meal. Looking forward to our return visit soon, and we would recommend the Clanard hotel to friends.

by Ja on Feb 21 2017 10:51

Really loved my stay in the Clanard, really nice, friendly, polite staff, Sept the blonde headed manager in the restaurant, and at the reception, the room was very clean, the food was excellent, would definitely go back and recommend the Clanard, thank you for an excellent 2 night stay

Stayed in the Clanard Court hotel as we were visiting the Kildare Village for a shopping weekend. We got a great deal and would recommend this as a base as it is only a 20 min drive to Kildare Village. We received a warm welcome and were very happy with our rooms. They were spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. We ate in the bar which was quite busy and the food was very good and reasonable. The service was prompt and friendly. Will definitely stay agin.

Five of us booked into the Clanard Court on the 20th November for two nights. I have to say that we could not fault the hotel in any way. The treatments in the spa are were excellent, the food in the restaurant and breakfast was also very good. The hotel was spotless and the staff were very friendly. My sister and her sister in law had to leave early as their father in law died suddenly and the receptionist was very helpful and considerate when paying the bill. They did not charge for the night they could not stay and we really appreciated this. For this reason we will return to the hotel early next year. It is about 25 minutes drive to Newbridge and 15 mins to Kildare Village, so very convenient.

Stayed here for a girls night away which included spa and afternoon tea which both were fabulous would highly recommend. Triple room was clean and very spacious which was another plus. Staff were helpful and friendly breakfast and dinner had a great selection All and all it was excellent and would highly recommend staying here

Beautiful hotel in a quiet, peaceful location. The room was large, pleasant and comfortable. The shower was great! Everyone was kind and helpful. The food was good (you must try the sweet potato chips, amazing!). We had a very good time.

I would highly recommend the clanard court hotel. The staff were fantastic, so pleasant and helpful. The rooms were spotless with all conveniences. The breakfast was fabulous with so many choices and the grounds were immaculate with lovely planting. Just a short journey from dublin and kildare outlet shopping on your doorstep it is a great location and we will definately return, margaret murphy cork

Hotel doesn't have a pool as advertised - you can use the local pool!!! Not quite the same!! Hotel also lacked atmosphere

by Jaffa on Mar 29 2016 08:41

This hotel is a little gem. The location is good, services good, food good and the staff are also good. Made to feel welcome, with friendly staff. Dining was a pleasure. We had two members of my party who where not partilculary hungry for a full dinner. So asked for an extra plate to split a main course. The waitress offered to have the dish plated up in the kitchen and it was presented as two servings. Excellent touch.

by Karl on Mar 28 2016 14:15

Stayed for nights, 24th and 25th March. 2 B and B + 1 dinner. Rooms was excellent, warm, bright, clean and very quite. (Mark 9/10) Staff very friendly and helpful. (Mark 9/10) We had two course dinner, it was of high quality (9/10) Breakfast was disappointing. Food not of very high standard, e.g. bacon, sausages, pudding. White bread was bland and cheap. Very limited choice from the buffet. (Mark 4/10)

by Karen Keane on Mar 14 2016 11:08

We were delighted we our stay at the Canard Court Hotel. We stayed on a Wednesday and Thursday night and really enjoyed the traditional band in the bar on Wednesday night (no loud speakers!!), the staff were welcoming and very helpful and the hotel itself was spotless and very comfortable. A pity the same could not be said for Athy.

by Sinead on May 6 2015 11:45

Stayed here for a two night break on Sat/Sun 3rd and 4th May. Lovely staff and good food. My only gripe is having to travel to get to the swimming pool. Makes going more than once awkward - and with all the rain we had we would have spent most of our time there if it had been on site!

by Brendan on May 1 2015 13:18

Great location, we were going to Punchestown and very convenient for course. The service was friendly and efficient. The evening meal was very tasty but the breakfast was just a little below standard. The lack of bottle drinking water in the bedroom was surprising and dissappointing but overall I would be happy to stay in the hotel again as it was excellent value for money. The attention seeking sheep with the Llamas I'm sure would be very amusing for children.

by denise on Aug 26 2014 20:35

I stayed at the Clanard Court Hotel recently with my two small children and I have only great things to say about this hotel. We were given I very spacious family room that was both modern and very clean. We received a lovely welcome from the reception staff who could not be more helpful. We had dinner in the restaurant on one evening and breakfast the following morning. It was very high quality food and again the staff were lovely I never felt at any time that the children were not welcome in fact the staff chatted to them both. The hotel is in a great location to visit Kildare village and the Japanese gardens. I would highly recommend this destination and will use this Hotel again.

by Ken on Jul 8 2014 17:17

We had a lovely time over the Easter break. The room was very big and clean. The staff could not have been any nicer and more helpful!! We decided to have treatments in the revive treatment room and it was fantastic, Emma was lovely and put us very at ease. I will say that we preferred the food in the bar to the restaurant, but that's just a personal opinion. All in all a great stay... Thank you

My husband and I had a lovely stay in the Clanard Court Hotel. We were made very welcome by the friendly staff. They were pleasant and helpful. The room was beautiful . We enjoyed watching the exotic animals in the morning as we ate our breakfast.
