The best day!

We had our long awaited wedding reception at Knockranny House Hotel last month, having postponed by a year due to the pandemic. Covid meant that at times we didn't know whether we were coming or going, particularly as we are based in the UK, so getting back to meet our suppliers

before the day was a task in itself. Throughout it all, Claire was nothing but kind, patient and supportive. At the end of every phone call, she took time to answer our questions or make more changes to align with the changing circumstances.

The function room on the day was absolutely beautiful. The size of the room meant our guests didn't have to worry about being crammed in/too close to each other, but at the same time the room didn't look sparse. It was beautifully set up by the hotel team and the venue decor company. Having a separate drinks reception room is also brilliant. So many hotels nowadays skimp on this, so guests are left mingling in the lobby with other guests who are checking in. Not at Knockranny House Hotel, the wedding area is self contained but spacious with an outdoor space. The same goes for the bridal suite. It was the biggest of all the venues we viewed, which is important when there are six ladies to get ready.

The food was delicious and presented very tastefuly on the plate. Our guests commented on how it far exceeded the usual salmon/beef served at weddings. And there was definitely no shortage, seconds and thirds were offered. Service on the day was also excellent, the staff was very helpful and nobody wanted for anything.

Knockranny House Hotel is a really classy venue, and Claire and her team are an absolute pleasure to deal with. We are so glad we picked Knockranny House Hotel for our special day. Special thanks to Claire!

Knockranny was amazing from start to finish. They set the tone from the moment you walk in the door. Its calm, peaceful and classy. Each staff member is fully aware of their role, and they carry it out with ease, and always making you feel special. Our wedding was postponed 3 times because of Covid,

but the support we received from our wedding Coordinator, Claire, was second to none. She is wonderful at her job and every hotel should have a ‘Claire’ in their lives. The service was impeccable and the food fantastic which all guests commented on after. The ambiance created with the decor was lovely, and nothing was a problem. We would highly recommend Knockranny for a wedding. We even wish we could do it all over again!

Thanks to all the staff and team in Knockrannt. It will always be a day we will remember and never forget.

As you can imagine the build up to our wedding during this very difficult time with COVID-19 was very hard, but we really wanted to go ahead with our date for this year which was the 9th of October. I cannot praise Knockranny enough, they were just wonderful to us and in particular Claire Concannon

there was nothing she could not do for us. A couple of days before our wedding the numbers went from fifty to twenty five. but when I rang Claire to advise her that we were going ahead she reassured me that all would be fine. When we arrived the night before Claire had moved the wedding venue to a smaller room and it was just wonderful. So all went so well and really that was down to the management and staff from Knockranny. Ourselves and our families had a great weekend and like I said Knockranny made it feel all normal. I cannot recommend Knockranny highly enough for a wedding venue. From the food, the hotel venue it is just wonderful. It is somewhere that myself and Shaun rate so highly and will come back to stay there with our family and friends again very soon. Thanks again, Thelma & Shaun McLaughlin.
