We had our wedding reception in the Muckross Park Hotel on 29th December 2020. We booked it in August 2019 and were dealing with Bernie. Bernie was an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout the whole process. She is professional, understanding and was so helpful with guidance and suggestions, especially in the middle of a pandemic! We had planned for a big wedding of over 200 guests, but had 25 on the day itself. We initially were going to use the Valencia Suite but after having our food tasting in the hotel in early December, we got a tour of the Atrium set up for an intimate wedding so we changed to that room. It was perfect! From all our dealings with the hotel, every single member of staff were so accommodating and nothing was ever a problem. On the day of the wedding, Niall was there to help us out - he was incredible and very attentive. We didn't have to worry about anything, everything was thought of and catered for. All our guests commented on the personal touches, the attention to detail and the kindness shown by all members of staff. The hotel was decorated so beautifully for Christmas - I would definitely recommend a Christmas wedding there! We would recommend the Muckross Park Hotel without a doubt, we can't wait to come back and visit soon! Thank you for making our wedding day just perfect! Jack & Jessica Sherwood

We had our wedding reception at the Muckross Park Hotel in December 2020. We had originally planned a big wedding but because of COVID19, we had 25 guests. Bernie, Madina and the team could not have been more helpful in the run up to our wedding. They were very patient and understanding and were always there to answer our questions and to keep us updated as COVID19 guidelines changed regularly. The wedding itself was absolutely amazing, even though it was completely different to the wedding we had originally planned, I cannot emphasise enough how much ourselves and our families enjoyed it. The Christmas décor was absolutely beautiful and created such a lovely setting. The staff were unbelievably helpful and accommodating and provided top quality service. The food was just amazing and our bridal suite and guest rooms were beautiful. We also felt very safe in the hotel, management and staff did a great job with COVID19 safety measures. We cannot recommend the Muckross Park hotel enough for a wedding venue, we are already looking forward to coming back for another visit! Thank you for making our day so special, Deirdre and Ian

We had a lovely two day break at Muckross before Christmas. Right from the day 1 when I had to keep cancelling and rebooking due to lockdown, Deirdre looked after me. We had a stunning room with a warm welcome. We also used the spa facilities throughout our stay which were more enjoyable due to the restricitions. It was so relaxing, We also had treatments in the spa that were just fantastic aswell. We will definitely be going back again

I just wanted to write a quick review here about booking our wedding at Muckross Park Hotel this month. My fiancé and I, like so many other couple who recently had the excitement of getting engaged were faced with the task of finding a venue for our big day without getting to visit it in person. We knew we wanted Killarney as our destination, it’s a beautiful part of the country and has so much to offer us and our guests during our wedding celebrations. We listed a few hotels that we felt would best suit our day and Muckross Park Hotel stood out for us. We loved the look of the Atrium and outdoor area for hosting our drinks reception and the ballroom looks spacious and elegant for our dinner and dancing! We have been corresponding with the lovely Bernie from the start. She is extremely helpful in answering our questions. She also reassured us that she understood how difficult it was to commit right away having not had the chance to view the hotel. She gave us the time we needed to think about everything and do some research. Which we hugely appreciated. We have had phone calls and zoom calls with Bernie. She has provided us with lots of names of suppliers and couldn’t be more helpful in helping us make contact with these suppliers. Now that we are all set with our venue, we are thrilled to move forward with our plans. We are so delighted Bernie is our co-ordinator, who genuinely seems invested in us having the best day ever!

We had our Wedding here on NYE 2020, we found our ourselves without a venue 6weeks out and we were very lucky The Muckross Park could take on our Wedding. We had 25 people and had it in the Atrium, which was dressed beautifully and made for some amazing pictures, from the fairy lights in the private garden, to the open fire, to the huge Christmas tree. The food was spectacular, from the meal itself, to the breakfast the next morning, our guests are still talking about it. The rooms were amazing, there was even welcome plates in the rooms for us and our parents. It was all the small touches that mad a big difference. Madina, Bernie and every member of staff were amazing to deal with,everything ran so smoothly despite the very short time we had leading up to the Wedding. Both Madina and Bernie were always at the end of the phone. I even had a slight mishap with my dress, Madina saved the day with her needle and thread. An amazing venue for your Wedding. A day we will Remember forever. A & G O Connor.
