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.

There will never be enough words to describe how fantastic Claire and all the staff at Knockranny House Hotel are! Quite quickly after our engagement the first venue we visited was Knockranny, on a whim, no appointment, no time scheduled to meet with anyone, regardless of that, Claire met us and

gave us the full tour there and then. As you would, we kept looking around at other venues but we found ourselves always comparing to Knockranny, but nothing could and we knew instantly that Knockranny House was our dream venue from the moment we stepped inside the doors even up to now weeks after the wedding! Claire was nothing short of brilliant, nothing was ever too much, too big or too small. We were blown away. I could honestly speak all day about Claire AMAZING, she was always available to us either via email, phone or even to pop in. We felt like we could have been the only couple in the hotel! From the food tasting and nights stay, to the wedding day and the days in between. Claire facilitated us a couple of days early to start decoration and ship stuff to the hotel. We cannot recommend Claire and all her staff enough! The food on the day was fantastic, over all the organisation of the whole day was STUNNING. Everything went so smoothly, as perfect as could be. Our guests couldn't belive such a stunning place existed, the views, the food, the rooms, absolutely everything was MAGICAL. AGAIN I could go on all day with how brilliant Claire and all the staff have been for us. But a few special mentions as well as Claire, to Chris the porter, thank you so much for your unwavering kindness and help throughout our days with you. To Ben, fantastic such a friendly face and always a kind word. Anna, brilliant nothing was too much for her, always on hand to help.
If we could do it again tomorrow we wouldn't change a single thing!!
Very much appreciated, we can't wait to come back!

We highly recommend Knockranny House Hotel as a wedding venue; they are truly exceptional. We got married there in July 2023. We are both living abroad so were initially worried that planning would prove more difficult; like many couples, we spoke with multiple venues but we knew straight away that

the team in Knockranny was a class above. Claire and Anna quickly put any worries we had at ease. From the beginning, they were professional and helpful. Their communication was exemplary and we were most impressed by this; any enquiry, no matter how small was promptly dealt with. This was truly invaluable in keeping the stress at bay.

On the days around the wedding, the staff were so impressive; always attentive and friendly. The management team all made a point of introducing themselves to us and let us know they were there to help should we need anything.

They had set up the function room beautifully and exactly how we had requested. The day ran so smoothly; as we knew it would. We had complete trust in Claire and Anna; we knew in the lead-up that they would have it all covered on the day. They also coordinated with all our vendors - another worry off the list!! We could not find a single fault in the running of the day itself. As bride and groom, we can't emphasize enough how important it is to have confidence in the team who run your wedding day.

The food, decor, drink, service... EVERYTHING was perfect on the day. Our guests only had good things to say....several said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding!! Several others literally pointed out Claire to us and I think my bridesmaid summed it up when she said "She's like Wonder Woman flying around".

We could not recommend Knockranny House Hotel highly enough as a wedding venue. Easily the best wedding decision we made.

My husband and I visited the hotel in August 2022 and met with Anna, one of the wedding coordinators. We knew immediately that was our venue. Anna was amazing, she explained every aspect i.e menu options, civil ceremony, the day itself, music and had all the necessary contacts. We were shown

around and saw the room where the function would be and where the civil ceremony would be and we viewed the accommodation. When it was booked, Anna and her colleague Claire basically guided us and prompted us through the entire process. They both organised everything perfectly. On the day itself, both Anna and Claire were on site. The room decor was fantastic. The food and service was fantastic. All our guests raved about the venue and Westport itself. It was an unforgettable day which we will treasure. Claire was so thoughtful, she put the bouquets in the hotel cold room to preserve them when ceremony was over knowing I wanted to put them on family graves.

Thank you to Claire, Anna and all the staff who made our day happen.

We were delighted that we chose Knockranny House Hotel as our wedding venue as it is a classy hotel in a stunning location. Special thanks to Claire, who was professional and supportive of our ever changing requests, especially during the pandemic. The hotel allowed us to have our drinks reception

at La Fougerie Restaurant, which was a special touch as guests could enjoy the view of Croagh Patrick whilst sipping on their champagnes. Everyone complimented the food as it was so delicious and there was plenty of it to go around. Service was top notch. Thank you Claire and all at Knockranny! Grace and Rodney Mason x
