We had our wedding at the Dunraven Arms Hotel in June 2019. The venue is in a fantastic location in the village with great photo opportunities. Louis and Hugh Murphy were a dream to deal with and along with rest of the team at the Dunraven Hotel they went above and beyond with everything and made it all the more special and unique for us. Everything from start to finish was to the highest of standards and everyone who attended the wedding is still commenting on how good the food and hotel was. The Bridal suite is a dream and place to escape as well and only a visit to the hotel will justify the comments. For us it was a stand out Wedding Venue and can not recommend it enough everything was Top class including the BBQ the next day.

Our wedding was held at the Dunraven Arms in April 2019. The venue is positively stunning. The wedding funtion room was laid out to a very high standard and the view onto the gardens is beautiful. All of the staff went above and beyond on the day of the wedding. They were courteous, friendly and professional. The food was absolutely beautiful and my guests are still commenting on it. Hugh and Louis Murphy were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. No question or query was too much for them and they went above and beyond to accommodate all our requests. The bridal suite is fabulous, I would strongly advise a trip to the Dunraven to see it as anything I say here will not do it justice. The wedding package is also very competitively priced. I have great memories of my wedding day at the Dunraven Arms Hotel and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an exceptional wedding venue.

Overall excellent service from management to waiting staff. Hugh was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating - nothing was too much trouble (special dietary requests etc.) We were lucky to have a sunny day so got to make use of the garden area for drinks reception, which was great. The bridal suite was amazing and all our guests were very impressed with their rooms and the hotel in general. Quality of the meal and the speed at which it was served was fantastic, couldn't have asked for better. The hotel is in a great location in the village - great photo opportunities nearby and nice walks for the day after. Would highly recommend.

So much to say about the Dunraven Arms hotel! The quality of the food, rooms, decor and service was beyond our expectations. The staff are amazing, the most genuine and helpful staff and their experience shone throughout our day. So many of our guests commented on how nice and professional the staff were. I wish I could do it all over again in the Dunraven Arms! Really looking forward to visiting again soon. It deserves every reward!!!!

From the first meeting with The Dunraven Arms Hotel before booking it for our Wedding Venue I can honestly say I had the utmost confidence and trust in them to deliver the wedding day I dreamed of. No matter how great or small my request were the Dunraven Arms Hotel delivered. Couldn’t praise this hotel and it’s staff enough. Staff are highly experienced and friendly and the comfort of the hotel was exceptional. Several of my wedding guests have since booked weekends away at the Dunraven for future breaks and occasions after experiencing it for the first time at our Wedding. As for the quality of food, it is exceptional and in my opinion 5 star. Our guests still talk about the infamous beef and wonderful breakfast. I would highly recommend visiting this hotel and consider it as that special venue for your wedding day.

We would highly recommend The Dunraven Arms Hotel as a wedding venue. We both fell in love with this beautiful hotel the day we came to view it and from the moment we met Louis we knew we would be in safe hands. Louis, Hugh and the team were amazing to deal with. They did everything they could to ensure our wedding day went smoothly. The weather on the day of our wedding was fantastic and our guests were able to go outside to the beautiful garden for the drinks reception. The food was absolutely amazing and so many of our guests commented on how amazing it was, especially the beef. All of the staff were so professional and kind to our guests and nothing was too much trouble. There is a lovely atmosphere in this hotel and this is down to the great management and staff. We couldn't recommend this hotel enough as a wedding venue. Thank you Louis, Hugh and staff. Bernie & Kevin

Laoise and I got married in the Dunraven Arms on February 15th, 2019. We looked at several venues before choosing the Dunraven, but once we met with Hugh and Louis, there was only one choice for us. Nothing was too much trouble, and their calm professionalism throughout made them a pleasure to deal with. The staff of the hotel are cut from the same cloth, and this results in a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The function room isn't a function room in the modern, square room with no windows sense, but rather a large living room capable of seating 240 or so people in comfort. It was exactly what we were looking for. The food is exceptional. Embrace the tasting before the wedding. You won't regret it. A top class hotel run by genuine professionals. We loved it and so did our guests.

Our wedding at the Dunraven Arms was without a doubt the best day of our lives. Louis was a gent to deal with and no reasonable requests we posed to him were ever too much. We chose the Dunraven due to its reputation for good food. On the night the food was amazing and everyone agreed on this. People constantly commented also on the amount of drink which was flowing at our wedding and this did not exceed the agreed package. The staff were friendly and experienced and treated all our guests with respect we expected. The venue itself has an old world charm which is one of the reasons we chose to get married here. The winter fires gave the place a homely feel. We were also impressed with the presentation of the room on the night. Alan's wedding hire provided beautiful warming fairy lights for the windows. Grace events did some decor on the tables which we also thought was lovely. The chairs were pretty too and we opted not to cover them with seat covers. We preferred this look.

Excellent hotel, they are fantastic to deal with, the staff are brilliant. I would recommend any couple to have their wedding here. We were delighted with everything they did for us.

We had an amazing time at the dunraven arms for our wedding. There isn’t one bad thing I could say. They looked after us so well, as well as our guests. The staff was so attentive and lovely. All our guest complimented the food, it was delicious, everyone’s plates were empty with people looking for more, the staff kept the wine flowing at dinner and no one was left without. The rooms in the hotel were exceptional so comfortable and cosy. I would definitely recommend anyone to get married at the dunraven arms. They run an exceptional show!!!!

From the very first meeting Hugh and family were exceptional in helping us plan our wedding. They showed us every courtesy and were very flexible and helpful on all aspects of the day. The food on the day was phenomenal and was a stand out part of the day for a lot of our guests. The staff were the most genuinely helpful and considerate I have ever come across. There was nothing that couldn’t be done and always with a warm smile. We had a number of children as part of our wedding group and they were perfectly understanding of the energy 10 children under the age I’d 12 can bring :-) The rooms were finished to a very high standard and very spacious, comfortable and clean. The four poster beds added another level of luxury. I have no hesitation recommending the Dunraven Arms to anyone who is considering having their reception here.

We were thrilled with the level of service and personal attention given on our special day. Our guests were very impressed with the high quality of food and service, the hotel is charming and wonderfully kept by the management team. Thank you once again.

We couldn’t have been happier with our wedding in the Dunraven Arms from start to finish. Louis and Hugh were very helpful with anything we needed along with all staff members who made our wedding day hassle free. From our meal tasting to the wedding meal the food was second to none and so many guests complimented the quality of the food and also both wines we had on the day. Many thanks to everyone in the Dunraven for an excellent weekend.

We had the most amazing experience from start to finish with the Dunraven Arms Hotel. We first considered the hotel because we had heard of their excellent reputation for food and for service, and both were second to none in our experience. We were really well looked after throughout by Hugh, but also any other staff member we came across along the way. Everyone was so kind any time we had a question or when we dropped in at any time before the wedding. They even happily let us practice our first dance in the ballroom several times before the wedding! From talking to the staff, it's clear that they are valued and happy and they pass this good feeling along to their guests. On the day the attention to detail was incredible. We had our humanist ceremony on site, and it's a really nice touch that this takes place in a different room to the rest of the day. The bar and conservatory area are private for the drinks reception, and these rooms offer plenty of space for some of the guests to sit down if they find this too long to be on their feet. The meal, as always at Dunraven, was delicious and many guests commented on this, as well as the wonderful rooms and service for those who stayed at the hotel. The Dunraven became a really special place for us as soon as we had chosen it, and I know it will continue to be somewhere we love to go back and remember our wedding day.

The Dunraven are known for offering excellent service and they certainly provided this for our wedding. Couldn't recommend them enough as a wedding venue

We had our wedding at the Dunraven and would highly recommend. Louis & Hugh cannot do enough for you and all the staff are so profressional and friendly. if you are looking for a lovely quaint setting, with top class food and service, this is the place for you!

I would highly recommend the Dunraven Arms. We fell in love with this beautiful venue the day we came to view it, but what really makes this hotel extra special was the exceptional staff. Right through out the planning, and most especially on the day itself, the staff were professional, kind, thoughtful and always went the extra mile to facilitate us. All of our guests were wowed by the fantastic food and the setting. Those who stayed the night loved the comfortable rooms and amazing breakfast. We had such an incredible wedding day and the hotel was a huge part of that. I would advise anyone getting married to head straight to the Dunraven Arms. You won't be disappointed!!
Review by
Our wedding day at the Dunraven Arms was simply everything we had hoped for and more.We had a humanist ceremony in the conference centre, followed by a stunning drinks reception in the garden, dinner followed in the hotel with dancing in to the wee hours. The hotel and staff were just out on their own, from the attentiveness of waiters/waitresses to the absolutely delicious meal from start to finish. Absolutely everybody commented on the hotel and how impressed they were with everything, staff, food, bedrooms etc. We really felt like we had the hotel to ourselves on the day. John was fantastic in looking after us from the moment we arrived until we sat down for our meal and Julie was also exceptional in looking after us throughout the meal and in the run up to the wedding. Louis and Hugh were also fantastic wedding co ordinators and no request was too much. We couldn't have imagined a better day and would say if you are thinking of holding your wedding here, just do it. Don't hesitate. You will not be sorry!!!

Don't know where to start, Hugh and the hotel were a constant support throughout our planning process and on the day they exceeded their reputation! Food and service was exceptional and the responses from our guests are testament to that! Everyone had an amazing time and we would like to thank the Dunraven for making it so special!

We got married in august this year. Hugh dealt with our wedding. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They worked around our schedule and made themselves available when we needed anything during the organising stage of our wedding. On the day, all our guests raved about the food and service. We couldnt complement Julie and her team enough!

Obviously your wedding day is the happiest day of your life but there are so many things and people that help and support you to make the day so special. We recently had our wedding at The Dunraven Arms hotel and people are still telling us how wonderful a location it was. Louis and Hugh were fantastic throughout the whole process and such a calming influence. I became one of those I'll write an email every time I have a question type of brides which I'm sure was not exactly delightful for them but they answered every single question and promptly. Fiona in the reservations office was brilliant and sorted all our accommodation needs expertly. The food was fabulous, the venue was stunning with such a relaxed and happy atmosphere and everyone had a ball. Julie looked after the top table like we were her own family and was an absolute joy. I could not recommend this venue highly enough :-)

Everything about this hotel is fantastic. The staff, food, venue and service were top quality. We were well looked after both leading up to the wedding and especially on our wedding day. I cannot praise the Dunraven Arms enough.
Review by
If I could give 6 stars for service, I would. Family run hotel that are incredibly attentative, no detail was overlooked. The food here is second to none, the wine flowed and all of our guests gave us glowing reviews. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Dunraven Arms.
Review by
Everyone at the Dunraven Arms Hotel, from the moment we first stopped in to inquire about their wedding packages, and throughout the planning process and especially our wedding week, were unbelievably welcoming, flexible, helpful and just all around amazing. Last-minute rain forced a change of location for the ceremony from the beautiful garden to an indoor location, and it was handled flawlessly. So many of our guests have told us on multiple locations that it was the best wedding they've ever been to. We, without a doubt, feel the same way! Thank you to Louis, and to everyone else who made our wedding everything we could have ever hoped for!

You won't have to worry about anything! The incredible team at the Dunraven Arms Hotel anticipated all of our needs, and provided us a stress-free experience. Our guests were beyond comfortable and more importantly my groom and I were too! My husband and I planned our big day from the United States, and the Dunraven Arms Hotel was always responsive and helpful with whatever questions we had throughout the planning process. They delivered the most magical day for us. The food was incredible, the venue clean and beautiful, and the impeccable staff did not disappoint. We highly recommend the Dunraven Arms Hotel.

The staff at the Dunraven took care of us and our guests so well! Nothing was a problem and they made sure everything ran smoothly. I would highly recommend the Dunraven as a wedding venue.

We were married on 24 May 2017. Louis and his team in the Dunraven Arms could not have looked after us and our guests any better. Louis met with us whenever we wished. Everything was explained and any detail that we didn't think of was taken care of by Louis. The food was amazing, the bridal suite superb and the venue stunning. This is a four star hotel delivering a five star service.
Review by
We had the best possible experience you could imagine for your wedding day - I loved working with Louis he was so relaxed and literally let me do whatever I asked! Julie was a god send and all the bits and pieces I left the night before we're laid out exactly how I imagined! People still comment on the service at the wedding and the quality of food 5 months later - I'm so delighted we chose to have our wedding here. We have such fond memories and cannot wait to go back for our 1st wedding anniversary.

We met Louis just before moving to Australia and instantly knew we would get married in Dunraven Arms. They have only two weddings a week, one per day and they really understand what weddings are all about. They were amazingly flexible, and nothing was too much trouble. Being across the world and organising the details closer to the time was effortless; immediate reply to all emails, any issues/queries I had were sorted immediately. They also provided some great advice which helped us a lot with planning in general. They have an amazing bridal suite which is tailored to the wedding day which I haven’t seen in other venues. On the day, attention to detail was impeccable, everything flowed as it should and the food was incredible! We had their signature beef which is carved in front of the guests and it lived up to expectation. Everyone’s glasses were always full. Photos were so easy with the church next door, beautiful park opposite and cute drawing rooms and staircases in hotel itself. We couldn’t have been happier with our experience and would definitely recommend to others. All our guests agree too!
Review by
Amazing venue. Wonderful people and a huge party!! Just could not be beaten, Louis, Hugh, Paul and Julie where amazing. The food was top class, the rooms where clean and spacious and we where really made to feel special. We had a crowd of 180 and it was a great night!'

We couldn't recommend The Dunraven more:) Louis, Hugh & their team were amazing to deal with & did everything they could to ensure the day went smoothly. We planned our wedding from Australia but were able to meet with Louis just over a year beforehand. From the moment we met him we knew we were in safe hands. In the months leading up to the wedding we contacted him a few times about various ideas we had & questions we wanted to ask & he was always so great to get back to us & made the whole planning process so easy. The food on the day was amazing & so many of our guests commented on how great it was afterwards especially the beef. The weather on the day of our wedding was fantastic & guests were able to go outside for the drinks reception. The ballroom is such a beautiful room & fitted our 180 guests with ease. The bridal suite is gorgeous & even has a special room for bridal parties to have their hair & make-up done before the wedding. There is a lovely atmosphere all over the hotel & this is down to the great management & staff. We couldn't have picked a better venue:)

From the moment we met Louis it was utter professionalism, enthusiasm and the want to ensure he would have a satisfied customer. We could not fault any aspect of the venue, from initial meeting to walking away the day after our wedding. Dinner tasting evening was fantastic, the range of food that was available for menu was superb not to mention the quality. All people really want on the day of a wedding is great food and great music & you can be sure Louis delivered on the quality of food to the fantastic service on the day. There was no hanging around as I had requested. We would do it all over again with the team in the Dunraven. It's a pure credit to Louis and you can see it is a family run business which supports the atmosphere in hotel.

five star,from start to finish,fab staff,super food,and what a hotel,we had a super wedding at the dunraven arm,would love to do it all over.
Review by
Absolutely outstanding from start to finish. We had visited several venues in Munster before finding the Dunraven and as soon as we visited and met with Louis and the team, we knew it was the right venue for us. Everything was so professionally run, we really felt as if it was our hotel for the day. The hotel's atmosphere is full of character and charm but also luxurious at the same time. It was like a home away from home for the weekend of our wedding (if our home was as luxurious!). We had a couple of needs for the day which were really important to us - we wanted a day that was relaxed and hassle free for our guests, excellent service and really great food - and we got all three! We got married in the church next door and strolled down with our friends and family to the ceremony, which added to the atmosphere. Everyone commented on how excellent the service was (people were really impressed that they were offered seconds!) and how relaxed they felt all day. I would so highly recommend the Dunraven Arms Hotel if you are looking for a wedding venue that mixes charm, character and luxury - and has super service and food.

Dunraven Arms Hotel was the perfect venue for our Christmas wedding this year. It was the most wonderful day and every one of our needs and requests were catered for. Once we booked the hotel, Louis and the team in Dunraven Arms organised everything for us and made the entire planning so so easy. Dunraven Arms is without a doubt the most professional hospitality establishment I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. The staff are excellent, the prosecco was flowing and the festive atmosphere was at its best. Moreover, the food was mouth watering and delicious. Our guests were talking about the meal for months afterwards. Donald and I enjoyed every minute of our wedding day. I would recommend Dunraven Arms Hotel as one of the top wedding venues in Ireland and I have been to alot of weddings over the years all over this country. You can't beat this hotel located in the beautiful, picturesque and idyllic Adare. I would recommend this to any couple planning on getting married in the future. Fantastic, unbeatable and supreme. Dunraven Arms exudes professionalism, style and luxury. Brides and grooms to be, you will always remember your wedding as the most stunning, funfilled and exquisite day if you choose the one and only, the divine venue that is the Dunraven Arms Hotel. Quality at its best and Louis and all of the staff are so easy to deal with. Easy decision!! There is only one option..Dunraven Arms Hotel.

We were really pleased with the Dunraven Arms for our wedding, Louis and his team were very responsive and were very helpful especially with their tips for the big day.
Review by
We found the entire team in Dunraven a pleasure to deal with, in particular Louis, Hugh and Fiona whose insights and knowledge really helped us in the lead up to the big day. The food and service in the function room was outstanding and the general atmosphere was relaxed and fun which is what we had wanted. We also found the costs to be reasonable given the quality of food and service.
