We had our wedding reception in Knockranny last August.... I couldn’t sing their praises highly enough. From the moment we met Claire (Wedding Co-Ordinator and Events Manager) she made us feel so at ease. We had met with other Co-Ordinators in different hotels, but it was Claire’s

professionalism and helpfulness that ultimately made us decide on Knockranny as our reception venue. From that day forward Claire looked after us with her genuine kindness and patience and made our whole experience so enjoyable. Nothing we asked of her was too much trouble - accommodating and guiding us through the whole planning. The day itself couldn’t have gone better, the hotel is simply beautiful; with the views and location. I’ve attended weddings as a guest in Knockranny previously so I knew the reputation it had and we were not at all disappointed. The food and service were top class... lots of our guests mentioned how lovely the staff were too. Thanks also to Geraldine & Adrian who made us feel so welcome and special - we really felt at home for the whole weekend. I honestly couldn’t recommend Claire and Knockranny highly enough - you gave us the most wonderful memories and will always have a special place in our hearts.

Our decision to have our wedding reception at Knockranny House Hotel was an easy one after our first visit to the hotel. The grounds, location and hotel itself are of the highest standard and the staff were brilliant to deal with. In particular Claire, the wedding coordinator, made our lives so much

easier as she was always on hand to help us not matter what the request and was extremely professional and friendly to deal with. On the day of the wedding, all the guests really enjoyed the day and were very complimentary of the hotel, the staff and the food was a big hit. I would highly recommend Knockranny House Hotel to anyone thinking of having their wedding reception. They would be in very safe hands with Claire and her team.

There are no words to describe how happy we were with the professionalism, support and kindness we received from Knockranny House Hotel, especially the wedding coordinator, Clare. We had quite a large wedding of 390 guests and every guest was taken care of so well, with fabulous food and 5 star

service. The day ran like clockwork and the meal itself was outstanding. Clare was always there with whatever questions we had, nothing was too much. We will be eternally grateful to you Clare for everything and to the staff and management of Knockranny House hotel.

We really could not recommend this hotel enough!

We had our wedding reception in Knockranny House Hotel in October. It was absolutely amazing from start to finish. But I guess everyone says that about their own wedding so I will go into some detail for you to make up your own mind.
It all started when my fiance and I met with Claire (the

unbelievable wedding coordinator) to see the hotel, go through our options and look at available dates. We fell in love with the hotel and the scenery straight away. Once we decided on a date for the wedding Claire was like our wing woman from then on. Nothing is a problem for this lady and she makes everything look so easy. She also gave us great advise throughout the entire planning process.
Then there was the tasting night. This was definitely my favourite part when it came to the organising. We went to Knockranny one evening to taste different options for the wedding menu with our family. My mouth waters even thinking about it now. We could have put everything on the menu so picking a few from what we tasted was the difficult part.
On the day everything was better than we both imagined. The food in the cocktail bar before the meal was so tasty and the ballroom looked beautiful. People are still commenting on how amazing the food was on the day. That is something I can guarantee you wont have to worry about on the day.
The bridal wont see anything else like it. I don't have words for how amazing it is, just book an appointment to meet with Claire and she will give you a tour. Wow isn't a strong enough word!
You cannot go wrong with booking this venue for your wedding. We both look forward to attending weddings here in the future because it is such an amazing place.

All of our guests fell in love with Knockranny just as we have done. Thank you so much for everything and for making our day come ttogether exactly as we had imagined.
