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. Michelle & Barry

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.

Muckross Park Hotel was fantastic, our wedding day was just perfect, the hotel staff are extremely professional and helped us in any way they could, they went above and beyond for us. Both Bernie and Daniel were a pleasure to plan and organise with and certainly delivered on an amazing 5 star wedding experience! Thanks to everybody in Muckross for a fabulous wedding day and a lovely after wedding party on day two.

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! P&M

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!
