I could not recommend the Muckross Park Hotel highly enough as a wedding venue. Being a five star hotel, it is of course a bit more expensive than the average, but you get what you pay for! From the start to the end of our experience, the staff were so friendly and went out of their way to do everything they could for us, and make us feel special. Orla, their wedding planner, is really good at her job - highly professional and a lovely person. We chose the Abbey suite for the reception - it is just beautiful, magical really. It's all wooden panelling that gives it a very warm feeling, and it's small enough that it feels intimate, but not cramped (we had about 140 guests, and it was perfect). The food is absolutely delicious - all our guests were raving about it! Definitely a huge step up from the usual wedding fare. And the staff on the night were just superb. Everything was managed perfectly, and they were very attentive to our needs. The manager on the night, Dean, was so lovely and highly professional. And the night staff who took over later were fantastic as well - they identified some gate crashers who were taking advantage of the free bar, and they evicted them promptly and efficiently, after first making sure that they weren't guests! Overall, it was just a fantastic experience and we had a wonderful day. Lots of our guests said that it was the best wedding they were ever at!

Got married here in may 2024 the hotel was spotless and the service we received from the minute we arrived until we left was fantastic! The best we ever received! I can't think of a time I had to ask for anything as they were always one or two steps ahead and had it already done! So glad we chose muckross park and can't wait to come back. Thank you so much for everything

Let me start by saying I normally don't leave reviews but muckross park hotel definitely deserves it.

We had this pleasure of staying and celebrating our wedding at this fabulous venue.

From our first contact with them the service was fantastic. No question was too much and if I said we were treated like royalty from the start it is no exaggeration.

The venue looked fabulous across the 3 areas. And us asking to move objects from the ceremony to the function room was no issue.

Niall and Orla were fantastic in making sure the day went smooth and better than we could have expected.

The concierge made you feel like a local and reminded me of the cheers catchphrase "where everyone knows your name"

And the wait staff were so friendly it fell like we knew them by the end of the day.

The overall experience was better than we could have imagined and I'm not sure we would have had the day we had it we went anywhere else. And my god, the food was out of this world!

Thank you to all the staff and management for yer help in the run up to the day and the day itself.

Also the vendors they chose to partner with are second to none and people are still talking about them a week later.

Our wedding in Muckross Park Hotel and Spa was like a fairytale. We enjoyed every minute of it which was greatly helped by Orla and Niall (planning and smooth running of the day). All staff that were involved in the day were highly professional. The food choices for our tasting were of a very high standard and our menu has been positively talked about amongst our guests.
If we could we would 100% do it all again.
Thanks to everyone who was a part of our special day at Muckross Park Hotel and Spa

I recently had my wedding in Muckross Park Hotel. I need to thank Orla (Weddings & Events Manager) for everything! From the day we walked into Muckross and spoke with Orla we knew this was the venue for us. All the staff in Muckross are so friendly and helpful! All my wedding guests were nothing but compliments for the venue and staff. We had our ceremony onsite along with the dinner reception. The food and service was outstanding! Our wedding was so relaxed as we were in experienced and capable hands! Everything went so well and we are incredibly grateful for everything. A particular thanks to Orla & Niall in events, your attention to detail is second to none . Lisa & Regina in reservations who looked after all our requests and changes, you were a pleasure. Chris who managed to walk my 2 year old down the aisle during a toddler moment! Thank you so much! We will be regular visitors of the hotel going forward as it holds a special place in our hearts.
Thanks again

The Hotel venue is stunning and very beautiful no matter the weather. With Kerry, you are not guaranteed weather and the hotel, wedding area and wedding rooms are perfect for any style wedding.
The staff here give you 5 star service and are extremely accommodating. This includes everyone from Reservations (Regina), Management (Garrett), Wedding Restaurant ( Chris and team) and Wedding Co-ordinator/planner ( Orla). They could not be faulted in any way. Upon booking a consultation, we were greeted and shown around and instantly you fall in love with the venue. The fittings, furniture and layout will take any stress from you and your wedding guests away on the day and planning period. Little worries become nothing when the team take care of it.
With regards to the special day, it went very smoothly. We were allowed use the hotel for photos and spa area even though we were not in the main hotel for the reception, as like above the weather was awful. However from talking to our guests they were hugely impressed with the wedding venue and staff. The food was to die for. You want to pick everything because its so delicious. And you want to eat everything too. You will not be disappointed.
Our wedding Co-ordinator Orla was fantastic. Any questions, whether from team calls or appointments or finalising details, she was extremely knowledgeable, professional accommodating in whatever we chose. Its difficult making these decisions as you want you and your guests to have a great day. With Orla and the team, they take the difficult part out and make it easy for you. You could not be in better hands, as she was extremely helpful to not just the bride and groom but also to the bridal and grooms party.
The accommodation is beautiful also, the rooms carefully decorated and suited to both singles, families and couples. Its a place where you don't want to leave. Reservations (Regina) answered every ask we had regarding triple rooms or rooms beside each other.
What makes this hotel special is not just that its in the most beautiful place in the world(Killarney) but that its a one wedding hotel. You are the centre of attention and thats whats wanted on your special day. We cannot recommend Muckross Park Hotel enough.
A wedding at Muckross Park Hotel is not just a wedding, its a magical life event that will be with us for the rest of our lives.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you from myself & Sean for the beautiful day ye provided us with.

I honestly cannot thank you, Niall & all of the hotel staff at Muckross for everything ye did. The Tower Suite was fantastic & the hotel staff could not do enough for us on the day, with breakfast, coffees, champagne etc. The Atrium & Valentia suite setup was absolute perfection, every little detail was thought of. It truly was absolutely stunning.

The feedback from our guests about the food & service was exceptional. The full menu was delicious and everything ran so smoothly. From the drinks reception right through to the sit down meal it felt like it really was a perfect day.

Thank you again for being so professional to deal with & also so approachable, this was particularly important for us when organising the wedding from Australia.

We cannot recommend Muckross Park Hotel highly enough for a wedding & stay. Hopefully we will get to stay at Muckross when we are home again.

Nothing but happy brilliant memories of our wedding in Muckross Park Hotel. From the minute we walked into the hotel back in February 2023, we knew this is where we wanted to have our wedding reception. Its a rare gem to find a venue that blends 5 star luxury and professionalism with a fun and welcoming ambience.
Orla was a breath of fresh air to work with in the months coming up to the wedding. No idea was off limits and she worked tirelessly to bring to life all the special moments of our day. Her calm confident presence reassured us that we made the right choice in venue and everything would land just right on the day regardless if things didn't go to plan.
Weather conditions on the day meant we needed to have our drinks reception indoors - Orla, Niall and team made all the necessary movements without any interruption to the celebrations. From shoe shining to car washes, flower deliveries to LED light up wristbands, nothing phased Orla or Niall and they took care of all the random tasks with a smile. This sort of friendly professionalism is a rare find!
All our guests couldn't speak more highly of their experience staying at Muckross Park. Great fun and craic was had in the Monks lounge the day before the wedding and most took advantage of the Spa and National Park to knock off the cobwebs.
So glad we chose Muckross Park for our wedding celebrations and would recommened without hesitation to any future couples.
We can't wait to get back down and know for sure it will be our special place of choice anytime we are in the Kingdom. Well done to all the staff and management (in particular Orla!) - you made our day:-)

We had our wedding day on 6th October 2023. Our drinks reception was in the Atrium and our meal was in the Abbey Suite.

Orla and Niall couldn't have done enough for us. Everyone thought the food and hotel rooms were exceptional and the service was flawless.

Everything was just perfect and we are so happy we chose Muckross Park Hotel for our wedding day.

We were delighted we picked Muckross Park Hotel for our wedding in September. We could tell from the initial viewing with Orla, the venue?s wedding coordinator, and Niall, the events manager, that the staff were friendly, extremely helpful and very experienced. The overall setting is beautiful, not only did we have a choice of reception rooms, there was a separate stunning ceremony room and garden that we were able to use for our drinks reception, avoiding repeated use of the same room during the day, a factor which put us off a lot of other venues where the ceremony and reception rooms are one and the same. On the day itself, we went to the beautiful National Park across the road for our photographs, allowing us to return to the reception quickly as the hotel is so close by. Orla and Niall had great relationships with the majority of our other wedding suppliers (such as Tie the Knot Weddings, our celebrant Ealish Whillock, Konrad and Adam Paprocki (our photographer/videographer) and Gabi Bakes Cakes) which helped lessen our to-do list on the morning of the wedding. We had our reception in the Abbey Suite which was everything we had hoped it would be, the food and wine were complimented by everyone as being some of the best they?ve ever had at a wedding. Orla and D?nal ensured that the day and evening flowed smoothly with everything happening at the time it was supposed to, again taking a load off of us as a result. We also had our Day Two in the hotel, enjoying the spa and the National Park with our guests early in the day, having more fantastic buffet food in Colgan?s bar in the late afternoon, finally finishing up the day by having sublime cocktails in the Monk?s Lounge later in the evening. The breakfast is also worth a mention, with a massive variety and the most accommodating staff that couldn?t do enough for us. Some of our guests were even sent away with boxes of pastries and were absolutely delighted! Overall we couldn?t recommend the Muckross Park Hotel and Spa highly enough and encourage anyone in two minds to go ahead and book it for your special day!

My husband and I got married at Muckross Park Hotel and Spa in August 2023 and were blown away with the hotel and service. We are currently living in Boston, so it was a bit stressful planning a wedding from a different country, but Orla put us at ease right away. Through a few zoom calls and emails, we were able to get a great idea on how the wedding day would look and flow, without ever setting foot in Muckross Park. We were able to view it in person for the first time at Christmas and Orla walked us through everything. We also learned they have a fantastic spa and I booked my mom, sister and I for the day before my wedding ? it didn?t disappoint, I just wish we had more time to enjoy the pool!

The hotel offered us welcome drinks the day before our wedding, which was great for all of our friends and family who had just arrived in Killarney to attend and have a lowkey night before the wedding. The Snug was the perfect location for that event and the appetizers were fantastic.

On the actual day, we didn?t worry about a thing, with room service for breakfast and the hotel handling all of the vendors. Niall was beyond fantastic that day and completely transformed the Abbey Suite for our special day. He was also a great MC for the dinner portion setting up the speeches.

We got lucky with the weather and were able to have our drinks reception partially outside which was a plus. The lights and gardening made it so special.

The dinner portion blew all of our guests away ? the food was amazing and the timing of the dishes was great! Normally wedding guests don?t rave about the food, but we?ve had so many people tell us it was one of their favorite meals! Niall and his team then quickly cleared a few tables to make way for the dancing portion of the night and the transition was effortless. We were so happy with how the night turned out and couldn?t have been in better hands.

The location is also perfect and right next to Killarney National Park. It made for some great pictures! We cannot recommend this place enough!!

In the run up to the wedding, Orla and Niall were on hand to answer our queries, ensuring that our most perfect day was planned to the last detail. They showed great professionalism and attention to detail as we planned our wedding day. Words cannot describe how well our guests were looked after by Niall and the team on the day. We received fabulous feedback from our guests who had the best time over the course of the evening in the Muckross Park Hotel; the staff were attentive, and the food was simply excellent. Guests have been saying it was the best wedding they have been to in years! I want to thank you Orla and Niall for all your hard work that went into making our day so special, and for helping us make our wedding day an occasion we will always remember.

Firstly no one can deny that Muckross Park Hotel & Spa is absolutely stunning! Then to top it the service is superb. They made planning a wedding from Canada seamless and they go the extra mile to make sure the day is perfect for the couple both in the lead up to, and on the actual day. The food was also delicious. They are well known for hosting great weddings (based on those who have attended several there) and I experienced first hand. Thanks for making our special day perfect!

Planning our wedding at Muckross Park Hotel was everything we could wish for an more and this is completely down to the exceptional wedding team, led by Orla and Niall.

We booked our wedding in the middle of Covid and on and off restrictions. We currently live in Liverpool and we initially had a video call with the wedding team to speak about what we would like for our day and making initial plans and if this was doable. We instantly loved the venue and knew that it was a venue that we had to visit in person. The hotel hold your date for you for an initial 2 weeks to help you have time to think about what you want to do and decide. However, with the pandemic, we couldn't get back until 4 months after our initial Zoom call. This was no problem for Orla, who was beyond obliging and held our date for us for when we could eventually get over. Orla was new to the hotel at the time but was incredibly knowledgable and was able to answer everything we wanted to ask.

In the months/years preceding the initial booking, Orla was outstanding. She kept communication open at all times and was quick to respond to any questions I had during the planning process. Nothing was too big or too much and Orla was always incredibly friendly. She was also more than happy to arrange an additional Zoom closer to our date when I needed clarification on a few bits through a conversation. We were so grateful.

On the day before the wedding, the impeccable service continued. Niall was around to welcome our guest arriving from the UK but he also made time to show Ross and I around. He offered some last minute guidance and tips before the big day and allowed us to make any last minute changes that came from his suggestions. He even went to additional lengths to ensure I was hidden from guests before walking down the aisle.

On the day of the wedding, the experience continued. Orla and Niall greeted my bridal party, Dad and I when we arrived. They didn't rush us and allowed us to take our time to take some pictures. When it was time to go to the aisle, both Niall and Orla were there every step to help us and ensure it went smoothly. Niall told us when to go and Orla gave some last second words of wisdom to help with the nerves. When I got to the end of the aisle, they were both on hand to fix my train and we couldn't have asked for more. After the ceremony was finished. Niall was on hand at every step of the day for anything that we needed. He was really accommodating to my bridal party, family and guests. He was incredibly calm throughout the day which is always a huge plus on the day of your wedding.

I will always be incredibly grateful for Orla, Niall and the rest of the wedding team at Muckross for helping us create such a wonderful wedding for us, our guests and family - especially those travelling from the UK and who got to experience the good Killarney has to offer.

Had our wedding here on Saturday 25th March which was fantastic - the wedding organisers at Muckross are exceptional.

We arrived on Wednesday 23rd March, staying for 5 nights and the staff cannot do enough for you from the moment you walk in. Concierge are fantastic - they helped us a lot. We stayed in two different rooms during our stay, 2 nights in The Belfry Suite then 3 nights in The Tower Suite (bridal suite) - both were beautiful, spacious and very comfortable.

The Spa is beautiful, always clean and never over-crowded. Massages were great and the post-massage area is very relaxing. Everyone there is friendly and helpful.

Have had some of the best wine in my life at Muckross & the food is delicious. Our wedding catering was something else.

We visited family staying at the self-catering apartments on site and can say they are also lovely and spacious.

The location is 6 minutes drive from Killarney centre and literally over the road from the National Park/ Lakes.

We will 100% be back in the future and plan to make use of Muckross' dog friendly accommodation options next time.

I honestly hope that my review will do this Hotel justice. We had our Full Wedding Day, Ceremony and Dinner Reception at the Muckross Park Hotel on Friday 17th March 2023.
From the minute we arrived the day before our wedding every single detail was looked after. The Hotel staff were utterly exceptional, helping us get organized and ready for our big day.
The Thursday night we stayed in two of the self catering apartaments, one for the bride with her bridesmaids and one for the groom with his groomsmen. The apartment took us by surprise, they were absolutely immaculate, very spacious and the perfect place to wake up on your wedding morning.
We had the Infinity Package for our wedding so the whole wedding journey was such a breeze for us, this package supplied us our Photographer, Makeup and Hair, Band and Dj, Flowers and All Decorations.
The wedding morning itself was extremely relaxed. Joanne henderson (Hairdresser) and Sandra Flynn (makeup artist) were absolutely unbelievable. They worked together like a dream, everything flowed so naturally and easy making the whole morning such a beautiful memory.
The photographer who was also supplied by the Hotel, Micheal O? Sullivan was just simply terrific. He made all the pictures feel so easy and natural. Micheal has such a great personality making all the photos so fun to do.
We had our Wedding Ceremony in the Atrium, and there isn?t a good enough word to describe the beauty of this particular room. It is just utterly breathtaking! The hotel staff had this space arranged and decorated to perfection.
Our Dinner Reception was in the Abbey Suite. A stunning room with such a warm vibe, all the tables were set up so beautifully with excellent attention to detail, the candles all around the room set such a romantic mood.
Our guests commented that the food was some of the best they had ever had at a wedding and we completely agree!
The bar and wait staff were beyond attentive and professional, the whole dinner service ran so smoothly and was extremely enjoyable.
The band Arklight who was supplied by the hotel were out of this world. This is all our guests spoke about for days after our wedding. Finbarr and the rest of the band are super talented. We are extremely grateful to Muckross Park for getting them for us. The night would never of been the same without these lads.
The wedding Coordinators Niall and Orla.
We would like to give a special mention to Niall who has to be the calmest man I have ever met, absolutely nothing phases him. Niall is a total gentleman who assisted us throughout the whole lot of the wedding day - Niall is absolutely fantastic at his job!
During the whole wedding planning journey and general build up to the big day we had Orla who was just brilliant from start to finish.
Orla?s professionalism and excellent organisational skills made the preparation for our wedding day seamless.
Orla was always quick to respond and bent over backwards to help us with any queries or worries - she?s such an asset to the hotel!
We will be forever thankful to Orla for helping make our wedding an absolute dream.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the Muckross Park Hotel for a wedding venue - It was truly exceptional.

Hi Orla,
We had a beautiful wedding, a love and fun filled few days in Mockrosspark Hotel. What a beautiful venue for our Christmas Wedding with the Christmas decorations and open fires.
Thank you so much for all the organising and step by step guidance and over seeing the day and what was needed for day two also. The menu with Vegan food was delicious, there was something for everyone. We can?t speak highly enough of the staff, who were professional and polite putting everyone at ease. A special shout out for yourself, Niall, and Joanne on the top table. The Wedding was a huge hit with all our family and friends. We danced all night with the Bentley boys rocking the night away.
Day 2 , was a relaxed Buffet with live music in the bar. My daughter spoke with Staff and the Musicians and before we knew it, we were dancing the Seige of Ennis.
Thank you again for helping me stay calm during the planning. We will recommend you highly.
We couldn?t be more pleased with how our wedding went.
All the best to you Orla and the wonderful kind staff at Muckross Park Hotel.
Warmest regards

We had our wedding at the Muckross Park in September 2022 and we are absolutely thrilled with our choice of venue.
From the day we booked the venue to the actual day itself, everything was perfect.

The staff went above and beyond for any request that was made. Our guests absolutely adored the hotel. Food was delicious and we are still getting compliments to this day regarding the meal and how much the staff went above and beyond.

The decor that they offered with their wedding packages was beautiful. The bridal suite was brilliant - from having enough space for 6 adults to get ready to still being romantic for the bride and groom. They even had our room decorated for us with rose petals and another bottle of Prosecco after the wedding which was a nice touch. All our guests were thrilled with their rooms and spoke about how lovely the rooms were.

It is an absolute dream to have your wedding here. I can't thank the staff at Muckross enough, they really made our day. Nothing was too big or too small for them. Special shoutout to Orla, Niall and Oisin who were absolutely fantastic.

Big plus, they were really flexible for any changes we made and everything just ran smoothly. If I could, I would relive that day over again and again at the Muckross

If anybody is looking for a luxurious wedding venue, in a stunning location, with exceptional food and top class staff then look no further. We were blown away by the professionalism of everyone working in the hotel. The lead up to our wedding was challenging given changes to government guidelines and new restrictions but the Muckross Park went above and beyond their call of duty. The enthusiasm and kindness they showed us for our day with weddings back to back all week was incredible. If there were 10 stars we would give them. We are bursting with pride with the experience our guests received. If you have your wedding here, it will be one of the best decisions you ever make. Thank you again to everyone, especially Orla, Niall and Caroline. It is a pleasure to work with people so excellent at what they do.

From the first time myself and Gordon stayed in the Muckross Park Hotel 3 years ago we fell in love, everything from the surroundings and spa to the food are exceptional, not to mention the staff who are the most amazing team of people you will ever meet! When we got engaged there was only ever one hotel that took our breath away! From the moment we met Bernie, the hotels wedding coordinator, we knew we were in the best possible hands! Bernie, Madina and the entire staff of Muckross Park Hotel made planning our wedding so easy and nothing was ever too much trouble! We were made feel so special on every visit to the hotel! Our wedding day itself was simply a dream, absolutely perfect! All of our guests were amazed by the beautiful surroundings of the Atrium, where we held our drinks reception, and decor of the Valencia Suite. Our guests were also blown away by the standard of food on the day, people are still commenting on it months later! Myself and Gordon have been back to stay at Muckross Park since the wedding, it is simply our favourite place. The staff yet again made us feel so welcome and special, it is the most amazing hotel! Thank you to Bernie, Madina & everyone at Muckross Park for making our wedding the most unforgettable day of our lives!

Thank you so much to Niall, Bernie, Carolina, Medina and all of the team at Muckross Park Hotel for looking after us and making sure our wedding was everything we dreamed of. We are so glad we chose them to look after our wedding day. Right from the beginning, we knew that we would be in good hands. Firstly, our first meeting with Bernie (the Wedding Sales Manager) was such a lovely experience and really helped us to visualise the type of wedding we could have at the hotel. Nothing was too big an ask and Bernie included very generous offerings to make the package that little bit "extra". She was excellent with her contact throughout all of our wedding planning months. Caroline in room reservations was so helpful for all of our bookings and queries and never minded if we needed to change details at any stage. Niall (the Banqueting Manager) was an absolute pleasure to work with and we cannot convey everything he did for us. Niall was our go-to for every detail of the planning, from the set up of the room to the entertainment, food and guest planning. He was so flexible to make sure we were able to get anything we needed, and the week leading up to the wedding he was so attentive to make sure we had everything sorted ahead of the day. We cannot thank Niall enough - professional to a 5 star standard but also such a great guy:) The night before and on the day itself, Medina was there to assist with all of the decor and table set up. With Niall & Medina looking after everything, we knew we could fully relax and not even worry about details for our venue on the day. The food was exquisite (the guests are still talking about it!) and the hotel were extremely generous with their portions and even seconds!

Thank you so much to all the team. We were treated as if we were the only couple to have a wedding at the hotel and we were made to feel so special any time we called in, be it just a pop in, meal tasting, and especially for the wedding weekend itself.

We would highly recommend this hotel as a venue for any wedding couple. It provides such a unique experience with the rustic setting and the highest quality for everything.

It is difficult to know where to begin in expressing how we feel about Muckross Park Hotel and its? staff. We are not natives of Killarney but from the first moment that we set foot in Muckross Park, we felt at home and knew right then and there that it was going to be our wedding venue. Bernie very kindly met with us ? unplanned, that first evening and that was the beginning of our very special journey with both Bernie and the hotel.
Over the next year and a half, we made many trips to Muckross Park from Galway and each time, we were made feel so welcome and treated like royalty. We knew that we were in the most incredible hands and when we met with our wedding co-ordinator Madina, we felt as if we had won the lotto! She ensured that each and every detail of our wedding was organised with exceptional professionalism. While she is incredible at her job, she also makes you feel as if you have known her forever. She is extremely personable and not only are you in the hands of an amazing wedding co-ordinator, you also gain a very good friend who is there for you throughout the process.
Each and every member of staff whom we encountered along the way made us feel as if we were V.I.P.?s. They carry out every aspect of their jobs with the highest of standards and always go above and beyond their duties. From the fabulous accommodation, to the impeccable service, to the most delicious food, we could not have asked for more, both in the lead up to and on our big day. Our wedding guests still talk about the beautiful hotel in the heart of Killarney. We felt as if we were living out a true life fairy-tale during our wedding weekend and the staff at Muckross Park played a massive role in that.
We will be forever grateful and only wish that we could do it all over again! The staff are absolute experts at what they do and any couple who is lucky enough to have their wedding there, is truly blessed. It is an exceptionally special hotel and we will forever hold a special place in our hearts for both it and its? wonderful staff.

We were thrilled with our wedding in The Muckross Park Hotel. From the first day we walked in to view the venue we were shown such professionalism and dedication from all staff. From that initial meeting we knew we could trust them with our special day. All our guests commented on how beautiful the hotel was and on the superb food.
Throughout the planning process they were always available to help and answered all of our queries very promptly. Any request we had was listened to and acted upon.
A fantastic hotel with very dedicated and friendly staff. In a picturesque setting.

Outstanding, I'd recommend Muckross Park to any couple getting married. From the 1st time I went to view the venue all the way up to and including the wedding their professionalism was 100%. Bernie was our wedding planner she was so lovely and I felt she really understood what I wanted and needed. Niall, well what can I say you made everything so seamless for us a million thank yous! Madina I felt like you were the 4th bridesmaid you helped so much that weekend. The hotel is stunning the food was delicious. All of the staff in Muckross were fantastic. Our guests said the check in staff made them feel special and made a fuss out of them. I've had comments of praise for the hotel from everyone who attended. I'm so happy we picked Muckross park for our wedding. Thank you all again. Anne-Marie & Shane xx

I can't recommend the Muckross Park enough. Everything from our first viewing to our big day and beyond our expectations. Bernie, Niall and all the staff were amazing. Anything we could possibly need done was done to perfection. Nothing was any trouble and we had such a relaxing day as a result. We arrived the night before and got married in the hotel. The function rooms were just perfect. To all future brides and grooms, definitely have a viewing. The hotel has a new infinity package which if I was getting married again would definitely get this package. We had most of the suppliers included in this package on our big day, they were out of this world. Food was so good we are still hearing about how great the whole wedding was and we are now nearly 2 months on. Wish we could do it all again was such an brilliant experience working with Bernie and Niall. Honestly best team I could have worked with on the day.

We cannot recommend The Muckross Park Hotel enough. From the very day we stepped foot into the hotel on the day of their wedding fair we knew there was something special about this hotel. The staff are simply amazing, so genuinely caring, interested and helpful. Bernie, Niall and Caroline to name but a few couldn't have done more to help us on our special weekend never mind the day itself. We got married in April 2019 and since then our guests have done nothing but compliment us on the venue, from the unique atmosphere of the Atrium to the beautifully designed Valencia suite, the food which was exquisite and the excellent service throughout.
Many of our guests had to travel and were blown away by the tastefully decorated rooms in the hotel and the apartments that are only a short walk from reception were perfect for groups of family and friends.
There is nothing too big or too small for the staff and everyone made sure that all our needs were met. In the lead up to the wedding they dealt with all our queries and questions and catered for all our needs above and beyond our expectations. They really put us at ease and we were confident that our wedding was going to be the most amazing day, which it turned out to be. A huge thanks to everyone connected to the hotel for making it the most memorable, enjoyable and special day that we truly will never forget.

We had our wedding at the Muckross Park Hotel last Christmas (December 2018) and it was everything we had hoped for and more. The staff went above and beyond to cater to our every need and did so in such a friendly and professional manner. The hotel itself was exquisite and looked absolutely spectacular on the day. The food both on the day and for the day after party was out of this world and our guests were extremely impressed. We had such a wonderful day and experience at the Muckross Park Hotel, I just wish I could do it all again. Thank you! Grace & Frank x

The staff of the muckross Park were fantastic. They were extremely helpful. If there was any problem Beirne was only a phone call away and was always there to help. On the the day the staff were amazing along with the venue. Food was incredible and all the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Niall Tagney was the manager on the day and he could not of been more helpful. With the lead up to the wedding he was so professional and really took good care of us. We had the best day ever and could not recommend the muckross Park team more. The reservations team and Caroline were always in contact making sure all our guests were looked after.

It really was a fantastic venue!

We had our wedding reception in the Muckross Park Hotel just over a month ago and we cannot say enough about the hotel or recommend it more. To any couple considering the Muckross Park Hotel as the venue for your wedding, dont hesitate. First impressions have a lasting effect and when we met Bernadette, our wedding coordinator that first time she put us right at ease and talked us through everthing. She was there to guide us along the way and offered us every support. Whether it was email correspondence or calling out to the hotel, no query was too small and she really gave us her undivided attention each and every time. Caroline was amazing in reservations and dealt seamlessly with all our requests and Madina who was looking after us on the lead up to the big day and on the day itself seemed to go above and beyond in every task. Every couple wants their day to be the stuff of dreams and Madina certainly made that happen for us as did all the staff in the hotel. We took over for the weekend and we were made to feel right at home. This hotel will not disappoint, it is the perfect venue for the perfect day.

What a beautiful hotel, from the beginning in terms of wedding planning advice and cost saving advice you are in the most professional of hands with Bernie she cannot do enough for you.
Our wedding co Ordinator Niall and hotel Manager Veepal were so precise to the highest of standards. The Abbey suite was magically beautifully decorated, all our guests were truly impressed, to this day they rave about how beautiful the food at our wedding was.
The events team certainly outdid themselves, their effort, understanding and accommodating kindness made both me, Dara, and our four young children the most perfect, relaxed and intimate wedding day that we could have dreamed of. They take care of absolutely everything from the moment you arrive to when you leave. They are phenomenal.
Our next day wedding party buffet went down a storm with our guests, Veepal went above and beyond with accommodating kindness to make this day the most perfect day in every way possible.
Danny?s professional genuine care over the entire weekend for us and our children, one being a very challenging free-spirited toddler, not to mention my wedding and bridesmaid dress dilemma?s when we arrived was like having your very best friend personally looking after you.
We would highly recommend this hotel to any couple planning a wedding in Killarney for there attention to detail, professionalism, precision and excellence, a truly beautiful hotel experience and their kindness and genuine care.

I couldn't recommend the Muckross park Hotel highly enough. From the minute we met with Bernadette to book our wedding we knew we had made the right decision. They couldn't do enough for us. The staff were always so friendly and always greeted us on a first name basis when visiting the hotel. We dealt with Veerpal for the finer details and were very happy with his attention to detail and professionalism throughout. The level of service on the day was to such a high standard and we could not have been happier with the food and service on the day. I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to any couple looking for a venue in Killarney. You will not be disappointed.

We were married in the Muckross Park Hotel (MPH) on May 19 of this year and there is literally nothing we could fault! The whole experience from start to finish was the best we could have hoped for. All the staff at the MPH are a credit to the hotel, there was no job too big or too small for them. From the porters, accommodation assistants, wait staff, wedding staff, and management - everyone went above and beyond for our weekend.

We had our wedding ceremony there in the Abbey Suite, our drinks reception in the Atrium, and our wedding reception in the Valencia Suite. All three suites are beautiful and well appointed, and the layout ensures there's a good flow to the day and everyone stays together.

Special thanks to our amazing wedding coordinator Madina. She really is top class and one of a kind. She gave us lots of ideas for our drinks reception which our guests were raving about afterwards, and most importantly she kept us calm and organised and made sure the day ran to schedule.

We cannot thank the staff at the MPH enough for making our wedding weekend so special and so memorable.

Big, Big, Big thank you to James, Caroline, Bernie and the team in Muckross Park Hotel for ensuring that our wedding on the 18th of November was the best day ever! Our wedding was everything that we hoped for and more! We were so lucky to be the first wedding held in the function room which is just WOW! James (our wedding coordinator) has the unique ability to allow you to follow your wedding vision but also add excelling ideas, advise etc! It was like having our own Franc! He is so relaxed and facilitated every request we had, it really made the planning process so enjoyable! He was off the day prior to our wedding and even rang me to make sure everything was OK on arrival. He is just amazing. The food was exceptional, our guests are still taking about how it and how everyone in the hotel went above and beyond to welcome the Cork contingent. Big thank you to Caroline for all her help with the logistics/rooms etc. We would highly recommend Muckross Park Hotel as a wedding venue and day after after after party venue as we well as we hosted both days there. It exceeded all expectation. 5 stars are not enough! Thank you so much! PS: Not a usual choice for a wedding but the turkey and ham was a massive hit with our guests.

We had an absolutely flawless day at the Muckross Park. The Sun even shone in November in Kerry!
Huge thanks to Veerpal and his team. From day 1 they showed nothing but the utmost respect and professionalism. No request was too big or too small.
We booked the Abbey Suite for 112 guests and it was the perfect location.
The food was delicious both on the tasting night and on the day and the bridal suite is one of the nicest hotel rooms I've ever stayed in. Wish we could have stayed there for the week!
Looking forward to returning to Muckross Park soon! Thanks guys!

From the moment we stepped into the hotel, we knew this is where we wanted our wedding. We had our humanist ceremony in the Atrium followed by the reception upstairs in the Abbey Suite. We live abroad, but organising the wedding was so easy with the team who were always on hand to help and so flexible with all of our requests. We had an amazing day with plenty of complaints from the guests, particularly about the Atrium for the ceremony. Thank you so much to all of the team!
