We got married there in May and we couldn't be happier with how the day/weekend went. We booked Kippure for our wedding 15 months in advance. In this time, the staff were very helpful answering the numerous questions we had and offering their advice which helped with our wedding prep. For those travelling to the wedding, we wanted a venue... More

Omg. What can I say? We arrived on the Friday evening. We were greeted by amazing people and an amazing programme of activities for our young people. Nutella chocolate spread bread butter tea and coffee in all the houses. Saturday started with a brilliant belly busting breakfast followed by staff led activities from 10am until 8pm. Lunch and dinner were... More

We were at a wedding on June 6th, it is a lovely place, good great, houses were spotless n well kept. We did not know what to expectations, so we were surprized it was so nice. On the negative side could do with more signage.

The place is filthy - the rooms, the bar,the marquee, and breakfast room. It has no character. Lady that runs the place is unpleasant. There's no way in hell I'd go back to this place voluntarily. Avoid

This is the (only) place to play disc golf in Ireland. Take note that the actual course is across the street from the Kippure estate. The course is on a hillside in a sheep 🐑 pasture. Watch out for sheep 🐑 poop 💩. The course has nine holes so you need to play two rounds for a full game. We... More

We went to Kippure for an International Event and nothing could be improved. The staff were always looking for another way to please. We had full board and the food was fantastic.
