With its romantic setting overlooking Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay, a lovely spa, luxurious bedrooms, graceful reception rooms and the outstanding skills of multi-award winning Chef Seamus Commons preparing wonderful, stylish, memorable food for your celebration, Knockranny House Hotel & Spa is a delightful setting for an impeccable and elegant wedding.

Everything at family-owned Knockranny House Hotel is about being minded, being looked after, and the attention to detail and care for guests so important throughout the hotel really shines when it comes to weddings. Every last element and tiny detail of a wedding at Knockranny House Hotel is attended to with flair and precision and your wedding guests will enjoy each aspect of this exceptional hotel, from its lavish bedrooms, to the cosy lounges with crackling log fires, to the good old-fashioned and excellent levels of service.

Weddings at Knockranny House Hotel are as unique as the couples who choose to celebrate their nuptials there, so from intimate civil ceremonies with close friends and family to dramatic black-tie galas for hundreds of guests, the variety of handsome rooms and suites at the hotel means there is the perfect space for every celebration.

Believing that the heart of a wedding celebration is the food, Chef Seamus Commons and his team ensure that this tradition is maintained throughout your special day with appealing menus and refined presentation. Seamus is originally from Mayo himself, and so has a particular affinity with the amazing local produce of the region with which himself and his team work their magic, and his menus use only the very best of fine local, seasonal ingredients including produce grown on-site in Knockranny’s own gardens. Wedding celebrations at Knockranny House Hotel are famous for their exquisite and unforgettable food.

Overlooking the picturesque town of Westport from its vantage point on the hill, Knockranny House Hotel & Spa’s location, with the spectacular backdrop of Croagh Patrick and the many islands dotted like jewels through Clew Bay, results in stunning and memorable photos.

We are so thrilled that we decided to have our wedding in Knockranny House Hotel. Our wedding planner Claire, is such a professional. Everything went perfectly!!

All of our guests were raving about the tasty food and the excellent service that was provided to us on the day.

Claire at the beginning to the day of our wedding, she was absolutely brilliant and we had full confidence in her! Nothing was a problem. She made everything work and it took the worry of us as we knew how efficient she was.

All of our guests made it their business to tell us how good each course of their meal was- a lot said it was the best food they ever had!

The bedrooms and the sheer class of the hotel was another talking point amongst guests. We got all our photos outside the hotel with the spectacular view of Croagh Patrick in the background.

I would not hesitate in recommending Knockranny Hotel. You will be guaranteed the best day of your lives, as I know we had!!

We would highly recommend Knockranny House Hotel and Spa for your wedding reception. From start to finish Claire was so easy to deal with, always had the answer to any questions we had, and provided us with so much useful information in relation to photographers, videographers, bands etc. All the

staff were so helpful, and the food was amazing (thanks John!). It was very easy to plan the wedding reception, even with the unknowns surrounding Covid and the numbers which would be allowed to attend. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. Teresa and John.

From the moment we walked into our first viewing until the moment we checked out after our incredible wedding we could not have been any happier with Claire and all the team at Knockranny House Hotel. Everything was incredible from start to finish. We could not find one single fault. We could not

have asked for a more helpful co-ordinator than Claire. She is exceptional at her job. She had everything under control and we never had to worry about anything in the lead up to the wedding. On the day itself we could not praise Claire and her staff enough. The food, the service, the atmosphere, the rooms, everything was 10/10. Every single guest commented on how great the food was. We are so so happy we made the decision to get married in Knockranny. For any couple out there even slightly considering this as your wedding venue just go for it. I wouldn't even hesitate in recommending to everyone I know.

I cannot recommend Knockranny House Hotel enough as a wedding venue. From the day we booked over 2 years ago up until weeks after our wedding they have been a pleasure to deal with. Claire, the wedding coordinator, is so talented at her job. She was quick to respond to emails and always on hand to

answer questions and alleviate any concerns. During the uncertainty of covid, she made us feel so at ease and always resasssured us our day would be fabulous no matter what - and it truly was. The service and Staff on the day were impeccable. The Christmas decor was beautiful. The hotel had a really personal touch. The owner even attended to us at our meal. The wedding meal itself was well received by everyone. It was extremely delicious and tasty. When they offered seconds of everything and anything, people had nowhere to put it. Even the canapés at the reception kept flowing. I honestly can't do the day justice in words. But you won't be disappointed with Knockranny House Hotel & Spa. I am not from the area so I checked in the night before, got ready there for my wedding day and stayed the night after. From start to finish, it was truly magical.

We had our wedding day on 31.12.21 & Claire, Geraldine, Adrian & the whole team at Knockranny made sure the wedding ran so smoothly.

We honestly couldn’t fault one single thing. The hotel looked fantastic & the staff were incredible. Our guests were constantly talking about how delicious the

food was all weekend. The mashed potatoes were a favourite and I lost count of the number of people that said that to me afterwards!

Claire was so easy to deal with from the very start. No request was ever a problem. She made life very easy for us and we will be forever grateful to her. After having to postpone for a full year due to the pandemic, Claire was always at the other end of the phone or email to offer support and guidance. She really is one of the best in the business & we would recommend Knockranny to anyone searching for their wedding venue. If you choose Knockranny you will not be disappointed!

We are already looking forward to our next visit back to Knockranny! It will always be very special to us!
