There aren't enough words to express how impressed we were with Muckross Park Hotel for our choice of wedding venue last September. We planned the wedding from China and finding a venue run by people we could trust was vital. From the first call with Bernie, we knew we were in the most professional of hands. Literally, Bernie never said no to us. All of our requests, she pulled off and even did so while advising us on the best way to save costs. She was a superstar from the beginning in terms of planning. Joanna stepped in for the logistics and organisation in the run up to our wedding and by the day of the wedding, she was one of the faces I was most excited to see when we arrived at the hotel. Both Julien and I felt like we had a friend looking out for us. She was professional, warm, running everything with absolute precision and the highest of standards, and yet somehow, she still seemed to enjoy herself. With Joanna and in fact all of the Muckross Park Hotel Staff manage a wedding reception, you are absolutely in the best of hands.
The reception was decorated really really beautifully, full of little touches to make it special, the food was absolutely sublime and we had very high standards for this with somewhat specific requests.
We will return to Muckross Park Hotel time and time again to visit everyone and enjoy the stunning facilities. I HIGHLY recommend Muckross Park Hotel for your wedding or any occasion. Sincere thanks to you all.

My husband and I both live in Chicago. Mike is from Ireland but had moved to the US shortly after our engagement. We knew we wanted to get married back home, but the thought of planning a wedding from across the Atlantic seemed overwhelming. After staying at Muckross Park Hotel and Spa and meeting with Bernie we were sold for our September 2016 wedding! Bernie made it so easy. She took care of everything I could imagine and more, putting us in touch with local vendors like Micheal O'Sullivan Photography, the Irish Rat Pack and Danielle at Tie the Knot Weddings. Bernie arranged for hair and makeup, dress pressing and transportation into town. Bernie took the time to skype with us often and was always quick to respond to emails. As the wedding got closer, we were introduced to Niall who would be there on the big day. He too was great. Niall went over everything with us and took care of every detail. Our hotel room was gorgeous. The spa is heavenly. We had a civil ceremony followed by a drinks reception in the Atrium. It was a beautiful day so we were also able to take advantage of the adjoining garden. Dinner and dancing followed in the Abbey Suite. The food was amazing. Everything was as ordered, and service was seamless. The room did get a little hot once the dancing started, and I had to ask a few times before it was cooled down. The staff at reception was beyond accommodating.Everything exceptional!

The Muckross Park Hotel was an excellent choice for our wedding, and the team went above and beyond to ensure a perfect day. Bernie & James were incredibly helpful with the planning and operations of the day, and the venue and surroundings are just gorgeous. Our suite was wonderful, and we were made to feel like superstars for the duration of our wedding weekend. The Atrium & Abbey Suite was a beautiful place for the ceremony, and was just the right size for our 120-person celebration. The addition of the Jarvey's Rest pub downstairs provided a great space for our pre-wedding celebrations the night before too. We couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate our wedding.

"5*; Top class service from the very first day we visited Muckross Park Hotel through to our wedding day. Bernie and Daniel were so welcoming & friendly and effortlessly accomodated every request we made. Both were available to take calls, answer emails and meet with us in person to answer any questions we had and were always a pleasure to deal with. The drinks reception and function room, the Valentia Suite, looked beautiful on the day. The food was fabulous and staff were very friendly to us and our guests. Our room was amazing- the nicest we'd ever stayed in. Our menu tasting was such an enjoyable evening with excellent food & wine. Thank you so much to staff and management for making our day so special. It was everything we had hoped for and dreamed of. We can not wait to return".

We had our wedding reception in Muckross Park hotel on the 8th October, 2016. From our initial viewing to the wedding day itself, Bernie and Niall were extremely helpful and accommodating. It made the process very easy. Everything from the drinks reception, through to the table service and food were excellent. Our guests were very complementary about the venue, the standard of the food and service. We couldn't have been happier with how our day went.

We both want to thank the hotel and its staff so much for everything, honestly we couldn't of wished for a better day/weekend.
You and your staff were amazing, the hotel as a venue is excellent, everything was perfect.
Our guests had a brilliant time, Marina and I joked that we would of loved to have been guests at it.
We would like to extend our thanks to all the staff who worked not just on the wedding reception but also the whole weekend. They made everyone feel so welcome and nothing was every a drama.
Bernie we want to thank you so much for all you help planning our big weekend. What was a difficult task for us, organising it from Australia. Your correspondence and work made it so much easier for us and you being so nice to my mother and sister too. It was one part of the wedding we could forget about as you were so efficient that we had everything sorted very early on. We greatly appreciate you being extremely accommodating, it so much easier for us.
Daniel we can't thank you enough either. Marina and I were blown away by your professionalism, attentiveness and overall positivity. From the minute we met you we knew that everything would be perfect. You put our minds so much at ease that we were able to relax and enjoy the whole occasion.
You too were very accommodating for which we are so grateful.
Your efforts behind the scenes did not go unnoticed either, the Muckross Park are so lucky to have you.
Once again, thank you, thank you so much for everything from start to finish. We will be recommending the hotel to friends and family who are interested in staying or planning a wedding.
Rating 10/5....Yes that's 10!

We are both Irish but are living in Sydney so we planned our wedding from Australia. From the very first time I contacted Muckross Park Hotel, it was so easy! We originally dealt with Bernadette and then James looked after us on the day.
James and his team were amazing. He was so helpful, nothing was too much of an ask for him. He gave us advice and lots of options that helped us create the perfect day. Our guests loved the venue and the food too!
The hotel grounds and building are beautiful and the spa is amazing!! The service that the Hotel offers is impeccable.
I would definitely recommend Muckross Park Hotel to any other prospective brides and grooms!

We got married in late July in Muckross Park hotel. We checked out multiple hotels in the area, across multiple price points, but as soon as we were taken around the hotel and saw the Abbey Suite, we knew we had our first choice. Bernie did a great job showing us the hotel, which we booked over a year before the date. We had multiple follow up with various people in the hotel from Bernie, to Joanna (Wedding Manager), Caroline (accommodation), Andres (restaurant manager) not to mention all the great staff members we met throughout the buildup and on the day. I couldn’t fault any of them and they really make the experience extra special. Everytime we visited, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We would recommend attending any of the pre-wedding events the hotel runs as it gives a great sample of the food and how the venue will look on the day. In terms of the wedding itself, it was a great success. There were multiple little surprises and touches that greatly helped. We stayed for 4 nights over the wedding and we’d highly recommend it. The Jarvey’s Rest is a great spot for people to meet the day before and also the day after. The separate Jarvey’s kitchen went down a treat for our guests on the day after. But the day itself was the highlight, from the rooms, staff, food and how we were treated throughout the day. The setting is beautiful and the weather even behaved. It was a great choice and we would highly recommend it. We hope to get invited to a wedding there ourselves in the future.

We got married on the 14th July 2016 and we decided on the Muckross Park, Killarney as our reception venue - we are so delighted that we did! From start to finish the service was exceptional. We felt that the wedding packages offered were very competitive after doing much research of Killarney venues. Bernie - our wedding coordinator was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble! She is professional, experienced and made planning our wedding so easy. The banqueting manager Niall was very attentive and made sure all went to plan. He was on hand throughout the day to guide us through all the little details. He was fantastic to deal with and was even present the following evening for our after party in the Jarveys rest. The food and wine was superb with some rave reviews from our guests. The venue looked amazing .The atmosphere in the atrium and the Abbey suite was fabulous. So many guests commented on the venue and how different the reception drinks area was. We stayed for three days in total and the staff always engaged with us and made our stay so enjoyable. We are genuinely so happy we booked and would highly recommend the Muckross Park for weddings. We certainly had the 5-star service experience Thanks again to all at the hotel who made our day so wonderful!

Props to Bernie and her team in the "The Muckross Park Hotel". They truly offer the best setting out there for ones special day. The Muckross Park Hotel is the pinnacle for ones Wedding day. I can say this having visited many hotels to see what was on offer prior to selecting a venue for our wedding. In the end it was an easy decision to make. What they offer is unparalleled from quality, hospitality, luxury and value for money. They have no equal in this regard and i fully endorse them. The wedding reception is tailored to the customers needs and preferences resulting in a final product of the highest standard which sets it apart from the norm. Shirley and i couldn't be happier with what you and our wedding coordinator Niall provided to mark our special day. We received so many complementary comments about the hotel from the beautiful banquet room to the menu selection and quality of food and its all down to you and your brilliant team. The final product really spoke for itself and we are truly thankful for what was an amazing day and night.
Many thanks Bernie and Niall on a job well done. Wishing you well and future success in The Muckross Park Hotel.
Many thanks, Shirley and Ronan.

I had the most magical wedding at Muckross Park Hotel last month July 3, 2016. I live in New York and had to plan from afar - Bernie the wedding planner from Muckross made everything so easy - we skyped a few times we came up with a plan and she made it happen. The venue itself was beautiful we had a civil ceremony on site the room had great big majestic fire place and great big windows floor to ceiling just so beautiful and intimate - my family was blown away. Immediately following the ceremony we had drinks and finger food outside patio area - again the space was quite and intimate - perfect for our guests - - never once had to think twice about serving our guests - the staff was on point and extremely attentive. We then moved to the formal dining room and had a beautiful meal - again the staff was extremely professional and attentive . Then breaking from tradition we headed to a priviate room off the bar - couple of hours later my Mom realized we never cut the wedding cake - at eleven oclock that night - it was not a problem - the dining room staff cut and served us the cake in the bar - it was unbelievable - both the cake and the service. I would highly recommend Muckross Park Hotel for your wedding. It was also great that we all stayed in the self catering apartments and walked over to the wedding as a group. Also special mention to Joanna - she was our wedding coorindator for the weekend - she was extremely accomodating - and never let me see her sweat.
