Where to start.... !!
The idea of planning a wedding from Texas was daunting, but from our first email from Claire, we knew Knockranny House was where we wanted to spend our special day!
There was nothing too big or small for Claire and all of the staff at Knockranny- much of our communication

was over email- but the food, the room (everything down to the lighting, background music, and table decorations), the flow of the day, the second day celebrations- nothing could have been better.
Claire responds to every email so quickly and with more than the necessary information and she meets bride and groom (and any of their family members) as many times as they wish before the big day.
We had the most special time and we were made to feel like we were the only people in the hotel the whole time we were there. Every last staff member was absolutely superb and so attentive to every guest, and the food was delicious! Thank you to every person at Knockranny House for making our time there so incredible - we cannot thank you enough and can’t wait to go back to relive all the memories!!

Knockranny is a special place, with very special staff. Claire and her team made our wedding day the most special experience of our lives, in fact the whole experience leading up to the wedding was made so easy by Claire that we didn't have to worry about anything. Every last detail we asked for was

taken care of with no fuss. Claire's attention to detail and knowledge of every possible scenario really made us so, so relaxed. The venue itself was just absolutely amazing. The common trend we are hearing from all our guests is 'the food was the nicest we have ever had at a wedding" and we agree with our was incredible! The whole day and night was way beyond what we expected and it was just flawless. One of the things we loved so much about Knockranny is that you are made to feel so special, we were welcomed by the owners themselves and made to feel so welcome. We stayed an extra two nights after our wedding and even though there was another wedding the next day, Claire still made sure every time she saw us to say hello and check that we were OK. We both really couldn't recommend this hotel enough and we can't wait to go back for our anniversary. Thank you so much for giving us the best day of our lives.

When describing weddings, it is often that you hear the words “best day of my life” used over and over. The gravity of that term starts to wear off. Make no mistake about it- Knockranny House truly made this the single BEST day of our lives. My husband Briocán and I are living in Boston but

always knew we wanted to get married back where he and his family is from. We assumed wedding planning from 3000 miles away would come with a long list of challenges but thanks to Knockranny’s Wedding Coordinator, the phenomenal Claire Concannon we couldn’t have been more wrong. Claire simply was everything you hope your wedding coordinator would be. While she is organized and works to get everything done, she also has this calming way about her. We couldn’t have been less stressed over our international wedding of over 300 guests- we just knew Claire and her team had it under control.
It’s been just about 2 months now since our wedding and we are still getting texts, calls, and shouts from our guests that we run into that it was one of the best weddings they’ve been to. The best Craic. The best food (seriously- this was one of the things we heard the most. The food was UNBELIEVABLE). The nicest hotel rooms. It’s so nice hearing we chose a place that our guests were treated as well as the bride and the groom themselves were. We couldn’t believe how accommodating the hotel was to our party, not just on the day but the entire weekend we were there. Everyone was just SO kind and made you feel like royalty.
We truly can’t say enough great things about this place. My hope is that anyone reading this ends their wedding venue search here and gives Claire a ring and begins planning their big day with her and Knockranny- you will NOT regret it!

Claire was absolutely amazing and did everything to make the day fantastic for us. Everything was run fantastic. Thanks you so much. Only two things which I think was disappointing was reception. They made a number of mistakes with people's checkins. My cousin got charged which I was meant to be

paying for as she was bridesmaid and I heard from a number of people that the reception experience was not good. The second thing was not all the drink we brought in was given out. A number of my uncle's were left without drink including Colm at one stage. Then I found out there was so much drink left over. I think it's a bad policy of the hotel not to give all the drink out as they want people to buy the drinks in the hotel. Two small things but overall an amazing hotel, excellent food and a wonderful wedding coordinator. Thanks you so much again

We had a family wedding at Knockranny House Hotel and Claire and her team created the most beautiful atmosphere well beyond anything we imagined. It was the perfect setting for our unique and personal wedding day.
