we got engaged in june 2011 and straight away started looking at many hotels, once visiting the killarney avenue and dealing with such a professional manager, Neil, we didnt visit another hotel and straight away made our decision and booked this hotel for our wedding. this was the best decision we could have made and not once during our wedding planning did we have to worry about a single detail in regards to the reception. the staff at this hotel are absolutely fantastic and they went above and beyond their duty when it came to helping with our wedding. words cannot describe the lengths neil and marlena went to for our special day. the night before the wedding we went to drop off wedding favours etc to the hotel...neil was in the function room with us all that evening helping us to arrange all the extra bits we had arranged as surprises for our guests, he went beyond the call of duty. the food was absolutely fantastic and having been to many hotels for dinner over the years, but especially for a wedding function the food is five star standards and all of our guests were praising it. we were so relaxed the whole day because of their professionalism, the food was served promptly, no long delays between courses like other weddings, everyone got so much food and the staff still went around to make sure everyone had enough. another thing which meant so much to us is the management went around to every single table with our wedding book to be signed so now we have a note from everyone to look back on in years to come, something they did not need to do for us. one of our guests gave us a cartoon type poster with cartoon type characters of both of us painted on it for guests to sign, marlena went out of her way on the day to go to the bar and the drinks reception area to arrange for guests to put their special note, something that may have been forgotten only for her. during the night i was speaking to marlena where she asked me if i was going to tie up my dress at the back to help me when out dancing and i told her we had tried but wasnt able to manage it...marlena had my dress all tied up with the ribbbons in a matter of minutes...they never ever stopped throughout the day, helping us to have the best day ever. the reception room, the bridal suite, even the standard guest rooms from hearing from our guests were just incredible. breakfast was just as fantastic. even at our dinner tasting before the wedding we were treated like absolute royalty..its impossible to write down the extras this hotel did for us as there was just too many. on the lead up to to the wedding we were in constant contact with neil & marlena alike and if they thought of any extras to make our day more special they were on the phone to us with their ideas. This hotel has a reputation for excellence as couples we have spoken to who have had their own wedding receptions here over 30 years ago also tell us what a fantastic day they had...excellent staff & excellent food is the reason this hotel still has star quality today. any couples reading this review, take our advise, if your looking for a venue with the friendliest staff, five star food,a welcoming atmosphere, and day to never forget, book this hotel for your wedding. You will NOT regret it....its a day we will treasure forever and the best start to our married life together and we will forever be thankful to the Killarney Avenue and their staff. thanks neil & marlena, you guys are just the best :-)
