We had our wedding here in May and we are still getting compliments on the venue over 6 months later!! It was the first venue we viewed and the last as we fell in love with the place as soon as we drove in the gates!! We knew we didn’t want a hotel reception, we wanted to get married outside and we really wanted something a bit different and that is certainly what we got!! The stunning views of the lake, the well kept grounds and the fact that all of your friends and family could stay on site in the beautiful cottages were a big selling points for us!! From day one Jana was so helpful and went out of her way to accommodate all of our requests, the day went so smoothly and that was all thanks to Jana and her amazing team!! If you are looking for something a little bit different then we would highly recommend viewing this venue, we have no doubt you will fall in love with it like we did!
Dear Jana & all the team, Thank you all so much for making our wedding celebration in AnnaCarriga so special last October. Everyone is still talking about the service, the food & the special location. Hope to get back to visit very soon . Lorraine & Alan x
We got married last weekend in Annacarriga and it was nothing short of perfect. We had the use of the beautiful pavilion which was set against the beautiful backdrop of Lough Derg. The owners Jana and Jeremy were very easy to deal with and nothing was too much trouble. We booked out nearly all of the houses on site for family and friends. They were all delighted with their houses and accommodation. Some of them were couples who only stayed the weekend while others were families who stayed all week. The houses were clean, well kept and furnished to a very high standard. Furthermore they were very well equipped for self catering, going so far as to have a French press for coffee and food processors in the houses. The gardening staff kept a tight schedule and were often seen in the mornings tipping away at keeping the place looking lovely. The fresh flowers placed in the houses for us were a very nice touch. Annacarriga is a beautiful venue for a wedding and will continue to be complimented by us and our friends as a wonderfully unique setting for a wedding reception. We ate in the Brasserie a few times and found the menu to be varied and delicious. AnnaCarriga would be a fantastic base for a family touring the area with children, or for couples looking for a quiet retreat. It is ideally situated on the scenic Lough Derg, beside a water sports adventure centre and is just a few minutes drive from Killaloe.
We got married at AnnaCarriga on 29 August 2015 and it was simply fantastic from start to finish. The team at AnnaCarriga were absolutely brilliant. It is a family run business and all of the staff were really professional and helpful which meant a lot especially as we were planning the entire wedding from overseas. The sun was shining on the day so we got married outdoors by the lake and had our wedding breakfast inside in the beautiful glass pavilion. Our guests stayed in the cottages on site which were superb(great value and really clean and tidy) and meant that we all had a very short stroll to the ceremony and again at the end of the night. We had a bbq the next day and kayaked/paddle boarded on the lake which certainly helped with the fuzzy heads! There is also a superb brasserie on site which serves delicious food with a French twist. As most of our guests arrived on Friday, it was great to have somewhere to eat after a long day travelling and again on Sunday when we were all exhausted from the day’s activities. It is an absolutely stunning location for a wedding or a holiday with a great support team behind it. We couldn't have picked a better venue. We will definitely be going back to celebrate our anniversary!
We got married in AnnaCarriga Sept 2015, and the venue and team were all truly amazing. From day 1 they catered for all our needs no matter how small or big they were. Couldn't recommend this venue enough for a wedding Thanks Jana and team X
I had my wedding celebrations here at Annacarriga on the 9th September 2016. I could compliment this place forever. The staff go above and beyond for every guest, the food made by the chefs was amazing and the venue itself is stunning. I'll definitely be returning to eat in the boathouse. Again the food is stunning.
We had our wedding there just over a month ago and we simply loved it! Staff were super friendly, attentive and lovely to all. The venue and food were stunning! That view is incredible! People felt like they were in another world! We were complimented so much on our wedding by our guests! Thank you so much from The Ryans!
Had our wedding here in July and would recommend 100%, we were worried about the weather but it rained on and off and was fine, loads of room in the big pavilion and stretched tent for everyone to duck in and out. Very special venue we absolutely loved it anyway! The food in the boathouse is lovely too, nice place for a family meal as swing set outside and can stroll down to the lake to feed ducks.Special thanks to lovely waitress who served the head table, and was at breakfast the next morning, didn't get her name (Young and long dark hair). She was very 'on the ball' but sweet and kind to us and kids too. And Rico the barman was a star! Look forward to calling back on anniversaries and days out, thanks Jana x
Hiya Jana,Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all your work on Friday, we had an absolutely brilliant day, and everything went perfectly!! Between the food, service and staff and venue we couldn't have asked for better and every guest have commented on how brilliant everything was. I couldn't recommend Annacarriga enough to people, so thank you so much!!Kindest Regards,Kelly & Patrick 😀
Hi Jana,Just want to say the biggest thank you ever, honestly we couldn't have dreamed the weekend would be as good as it was. You did such an incredible job and everyone was raving about how wonderful the venue was!!! You made everything run so smoothly and we are beyond delighted we choose Annacarriga as our venue. We will recommend it highly to everyone!!!Thanks again,Aobhaoin & Chris

Hi Jana,I just wanted to drop you a little email to say thank you so much for everything you have done for Alan and myself for our wedding.I can't tell in words how happy we are that we choose Annacarriga. From start to finish you and your team have been so helpful, kind and beyond professional. I couldn't recommend ye more and all i mean ALL of our family and friends had an amazing time and where raving a out the meal and the staff 😁.Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.Alan & Mary Ellen O Dwyer.
Hi Jana & Jenny,Mike and I would like to express our biggest thank you to you both for all you did for us & for our family & friends over the weekend.We had such a great time so thank you for making our day extra special.Mike & Oonagh
Hi Jana,A huge thanks to you and your team for all your support and work in the build-up to and during our wedding. We were delighted with how it all went and our guests are still talking about what an amazing location AnnaCarriga is.I'd imagine that this was one of the more challenging wedding days of the season given the weather conditions, but once everyone was settled at the ceremony it really didn't have a negative impact on our day. We were really pleased that it was dry and bright on day 2 and so we got to party on the beach until the early hours.Thanks again for everything and I hope you all enjoy a well earned break at the end of the manic wedding season.Conor & Rachel
“Beautiful meal ” Lovely tapas & menu in general. Very nice efficient staff especially Italian gentleman who was very professional & attentive. Good wine list. Very relaxed ambiance. Can't say enough about this place. Will definitely be back again. Visited July 2016
“Sunday Lunch” This was truly the tastiest lamb I have ever eaten. My husband had the Beef. It was lovely to get in out of the rain and, as always, to not have to coo on a Sunday. The setting is lovely and the local scenery just fabulous. The service was efficient and the staff very friendly. Visited July 2016 / TripAdvisor
We love the newly renovated Boat House! The menu is varied and the food is scrumptious. My favourites are the burger, the chowder and tagliatelle. Try to save some space and taste one of their desserts. Lemon one is my favourite. Sunday lunch is highly recommended too. Big enough portions and 2-,3-course options are available. The new decor is impressive and very cosy. As a family we love the place as it's child friendly. There's a lovely play area outside ( safe). And a bouncy castle at weekends is a great hit with our small ones. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Special thanks to Paula and Rico for always looking after us. We are looking forward to returning to the boat house soon. Visited July 2016 / TripAdvisor
I stayed in the AnnaCarriga for June 2012 BH weekend as part of a group of 30 adults and children and I can not recommend it highly enough. I stayed in Marina walk house which was spacious, clean and well equipped. Some of our group stayed in the more modern carrownakilly houses and were also very impressed.There was a small playground and shallow area of the lake for paddling/swimming. The location is excellent in the scenic east Clare area which offers beautiful natural amenities sensitively exploited for biking, hiking and every imaginable water sport. It was only a short trip to Killaloe. Overall, we received a warm welcome, excellent service and good value in AnnaCarriga, my only regret was that we didn't stay longer but we will definitely be back! Stayed June 2012, travelled with friends
Really lovely location. We took two houses side by side with our sisters family, the cousins had a ball playing tennis and skimming stones on the shore. the houses were bright clean and spacious. while you cant really walk i to Killaloe it is only a couple of minutes away in the car. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. We will be back as it has been a fantastic holiday. Adrian - August 2013
We would just like to say thank you so much for making our special day so very special. Everything went so well – we couldn’t have asked for more. The setting is very picturesque and arriving by boat on the Spirit of Killaloe was a highlight for a lot of people from out of town. The venue itself couldn’t have been better – even though it wasn’t the sunniest of days, the room itself was so bright and light filled that I think it made everyone think it was like a bright summers day. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Overall you have an outstanding venue. The food and service were very also outstanding and many guests commented on how excellent it was.
