Polished, stylish and sophisticated with superb attention to detail – weddings at gorgeous Knockranny House Hotel & Spa, the family-run luxurious hotel overlooking the picturesque town of Westport...


Gorgeous Knockranny House Hotel in Westport is polished, comfortable and genuinely welcoming, making it the loveliest backdrop for a special celebration. 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. For example up to 380 guests can be looked after in style in the Nephin Suite with its adjacent Cocktail Bar and outside cocktail courtyard, and La Fougère restaurant at Knockranny House Hotel offers an excellent alternative venue for parties from 25 up to 80, with the O’Raifteiri suite seating 120 guests, and the hotel is licenced for civil ceremonies and partnerships.

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.

When I was researching wedding photographers, I found a beautiful photo of a reception room and following the internet trail I found the photographers blog where they complimented the Knockranny wedding planner, Claire. And let me tell you, Claire and Anna are the duo for your special day. In the

planning stages, no detail is forgotten. They are ten steps ahead of you, stay in communication, reply quickly and efficiently. During the event they are polite, professional, and hospitable to you, your bridal party, and your guests. I have attended weddings before where the bride and groom are answering questions right up to the dance floor and at the Knockranny, that wasn't the case -- every single detail was covered! But we felt Anna's presence the entire evening making sure that the delicious food, the sensational decor, and the lively spirit of the venue were up to top notch. The hotel was absolutely gorgeous and the guests are still raving about the views, the location to Westport town, and the comfort and style of the rooms. The breakfast and bar were always accommodating. You really felt when you stepped in to the hotel on the Thursday before the ceremony that you were the belle of the ball and for that, taking the pressure and stress out of hosting such an important event off the shoulders of the bride and groom I cannot thank the Knockranny enough. We are so glad we went with this venue and are excited to come back for our anniversary next year -- it will be wonderful to walk the halls and remember when they were full of our friends and family toasting and celebrating the adventures ahead. You can't go wrong when you choose the Knockranny -- trust this bride!

We had our wedding reception at Knockranny House Hotel and Spa, Westport and cannot recommend them highly enough.

All of the staff we met during the course of planning our big day and on duty on the day itself were all very professional, experienced and friendly, something that was especially

noteworthy at a time when much of the hospitality industry is struggling to secure and retain staff. The wedding coordinators Claire and Anna, in particular, were absolutely fantastic. Whenever we contacted them with any queries during the planning stage one of them would respond almost immediately, they facilitated all requests we had and ensured that everything ran smoothly on the day leaving us free to enjoy ourselves with our guests.

The venue itself is gorgeous, it is an older style hotel, but is very well maintained and elegantly decorated. Both the main reception room and the smaller adjoining room the pre dinner drinks reception was held in are very well laid out and have a good flow between them, and both looked incredibly beautiful when dressed for the day.

The food service was amazing - we heard nothing but compliments from our guests, including from some who we had feared would not like the menu we selected. Everything was really fresh, well cooked and well presented and certainly there were no complaints about portion size with some guests reporting that they had been offered not only seconds but thirds and even that they had been allowed to try all of the menu options.

Knockranny truly pulled out all the stops for us and we would recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

There aren't enough positive words to describe our wedding experience at Knockranny!
From the moment we contacted the hotel about organising a viewing to checking out after our big day - we had the most incredible experience.
The word "hero" gets thrown around a lot but it honestly is the only

word to describe Knockranny's Wedding Coordinator - Claire. She is an absolute lady through and through and is a pleasure to deal with. From the moment we sat down with her in December 2020 to discuss our wedding, right up until our wedding day in July 2022, she was a joy to be around. From her sheer professionalism, to her incredible organisation, from her immediate replies to emails to her tips and advice, we honestly loved every step of the journey with Claire! On our wedding day she was amazing, working both in front and behind the scenes to ensure that everything kept ticking over on time. Even her eye for detail is amazing - laying out our photographs, sweets table, signs and baskets in the most wonderful way!

There is such a warmth from once you walk in the door of Knockranny and this is down to the incredible staff. From the lovely ladies on the front desk, to the bar staff, the cleaning staff to the function room staff - each and every member always had a smile on their face and made all of our guests feel so welcome.

From speaking to many of our guests - there has been no question as to their standout part of the day... our wedding meal (or "feast" as it has been named my some family members!)
Our wedding meal was simply outstanding!! Each course was of the most sublime quality, impeccable presentation and sheer class. There wasn't one single negative comment about any aspect from the meal and coming from two family of foodies - that is REALLY saying something!

Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and we know that we have Claire and all of the staff at Knockranny to thank for that.

We will be forever grateful to you all.

We celebrated our wedding at Knockranny House Hotel in June of this year and our experience with Claire and the team was exceptional from start to finish. Our guests could not speak highly enough of the venue, the food and the service that we experienced all day long.
The venue offered the perfect

location for outdoor pictures and saved us having to travel to another location on the day.
The drinks reception space was comfortable and allowed our guests to relax and mingle in a private area prior to sitting down for the meal.
Every single course of our dinner was delicious with many availing of the generous offering of seconds (and in some cases thirds!). The service during dinner and until the early hours of the morning was excellent.

We only wish we could do it all over again in Knockranny!

Knockranny House Hotel was the perfect location for our wedding this year! Claire was an absolute star from the get go and couldn't have done enough for us!
She always responded almost instantly even on weekends (we live in the USA so there was also a time difference) and went so out of her way to

help us and cater to our needs! Nothing was a problem! Having her as the wedding coordinator at the venue was amazing and gave us such peace of mind!
The venue itself is stunning and all the staff are so unbelievably nice and accommodating! Anyone we dealt with onsite was so professional and helpful! The rooms are stunning and the spa is top class! I have to commend John Durkan the head chef who made sure that the dinner was out of this world! Our guests raved about the food and the dinner service was seamless! I also have to commend the bar tenders! Every cocktail was spot on and everyone had a drink in their hand at all times!
I would recommend anyone to have their wedding in Knockranny for the ballroom alone! It is huge and stunning!! Everything is laid out perfectly and they run a seriously tight ship where everyone knows exactly what is going on! I really can't say enough good things about the hotel! They even gave us a complimentary night's stay for our first year anniversary and honestly, we can't wait to go back!
Thank you so so much Claire, John and all the staff! You gave us the perfect day!
