My husband and I couldn’t recommend Thomas Prior Hall more highly as a wedding venue. Our guests were very complimentary about the quality of food and the service received. We are in full agreement. We loved the location of the building and also it’s architectural beauty. The layout of the Thomas Prior Hall and the way different areas are run worked perfectly for us. The acoustics were also excellent. We had our ceremony and reception in the hall with our drinks reception in the grandstand courtyard. There are lovely spots to take photos in the garden too. Our guests were also very happy with the hotel rooms in the Clayton Hotel (linked to the hall). The bridal suite was perfect. Our needs were accommodated in every way-be it early check-in, Hall access for decoration, cake cutting, wheelchair access, mics... We had a great party and loved every minute.

Our first visit to Clayton Hotel Ballsbridge was July 2018. As we stood outside, we knew immediately that this was the place we wanted to get married and have our reception. During our visit, we spoke to the wedding coordinator. She was extremely helpful and professional. Upon returning home we set the date. We returned in April for the tasting and other necessary arrangements were made. Everything went very smoothly as we prepared to get married. We arrived a few days before as did several guests. The reception staff were outstanding and friendly helping us with details. Answering questions. We had on Friday dinner reservations for 18 of us. The food and service were outstanding. On our wedding day, Nichole made sure everything was perfect. The Thomas Prior hall was stunning. We loved the way the cake was displayed. With the lights. Our meal was delicious. The presentation was perfect. No words can express how happy we are with every detail. Thank you for taking care of us. We look forward to our 1-year anniversary at the Clayton.
