The whole process of getting married can be very daunting. From the start, Madeline had been a joy to deal with. We had seen a few venues before visiting the Rose Hotel, but knew immediately that it was the place for us. Madeleine and the staff were very helpful and accommodating to us in the lead up our big day. From our initial meetings, to regular updates, Madeleine was on the ball with everything. She provided us with a vendor list, which made our job a lot easier for sourcing the photographer, videographer, band, etc The range and choice on the menus had something to suit everyone. We were able to mix and match to pick the perfect one for ... Read more

We had our wedding reception in the Rose Hotel in December 2018. We are so grateful to the Rose, especially Madeleine, for ensuring our wedding day ran without a blip. Madeleine made our preparations stress-free. Anything we requested was never an issue. Our visits, phone conversations and emails were always a pleasure. The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas which added to the magical atmosphere on the day. The wedding meal was outstanding, five star food and service. We received many compliments on the meal for weeks, even months after the wedding! We cannot rate the place highly enough and we would without hesitation, highly recommend the Rose Hotel as a wedding venue! Elaine & Michael O’Connor

Any request we had she always made it happen she is so friendly, approachable and professional she made every minute of planning enjoyable!! We cannot explain how happy we both are that we picked this hotel to get married in !! The day of the wedding every single thing we had organised went off without a glitch !! As this hotel is new not many of our guests had been, however, everyone commented on how fantastic it was, the service, the food, the rooms and even the breakfast the ... Read more

Getting married is ranked 7th most stressful thing in life. It would be ranked 1st as the least stressful thing in life if all weddings were held at The Rose Hotel under the close supervision of Madeleine and to be fair all the staff that made our day great. The drinks reception was top class and we couldn't say enough about the food and drinks in both bars. We did not hear of one complaint about either, in fact, some guests actually rang to say it was the best wedding they had been to, due to the food, staff and the band which made us very happy. The Wife said she would do it again tomorrow. Thanks to all at ... Read more

We had our wedding reception in The Rose Hotel on the 1st of December 2018, and we honestly don’t have enough good words to describe the amazing experience we had. We knew from the minute we walked into the hotel that it was the “one” for our wedding. The staff are amazing in every department. Nothing was too much. Anything we wanted, we were given, without hesitation. The hotel itself is just simply outstanding. Beautifully decorated. The nicest hotel we have stayed in, and most of all, everything about the hotel and their staff was loved by all of our guests. Madeleine is such a wonderful person. We are so lucky to have chosen this hotel for our wedding reception ... Read more

Our wedding day was the best day both of us had. It was made all the better by the brilliant service by Madeleine and the staff at the Rose Hotel. Nothing was any problem if a problem came up or a change had to be made. The price and package that we chose was the most competitive and best value by a long shot. All the guests were raving about the meal served and that was a great comfort to both of us. All in all, we would have no problem and have recommended the Rose Hotel as a wedding venue for any couple who are thinking about choosing their venue.
by Grace Coakley on Fri, 18th January, 2019
Our wedding at the Rose was absolutely perfect. The staff were so attentive and wonderful. The venue itself is stunning, the perfect mix of class and glamour, but not a bit pretentious and the food was delicious and loved by all our guests, even our gluten-free-vegans loved the menu! Most of all, we are so grateful for having Madeline guiding us and helping us organise everything. She made us feel really special and made the day run so smoothly, we couldn’t have done it without her. If we could do it all over again we would pick The Rose every time.
by Sharon & Gary Moriarty on Wed, 16th January, 2019
We had our wedding there a few weeks ago and could not fault the hotel and the staff. We were so happy with everything from start to finish. Shona and Madeline were a breeze to deal with and made me feel like I was the only one getting married.. and can't forget mark!! He knows what he's talking about. Thank you so much for everything, people are still talking about the hotel. I would definitely recommend anyone to book their wedding there.

The Rose Hotel is an amazing hotel. We had our wedding reception in this beautiful hotel on the 21st of April 2017. We would like to thank all off the staff especially Mark Sullivan and Madeline Doyle who were over our wedding. All of the staff were so professional and friendly and made our day even more special. The food was amazing as was the venue. We would like to wish The Rose Hotel and the staff continued success and best of luck in the future. Mark and Emma McKenna.

What a fantastic hotel. I got married on the 24th November and I couldn't recommend The Rose Hotel any higher. Every member of staff I came in contact with was amazing. Madeleine Doyle the wedding coordinator is the most fantastic woman, nothing is too much trouble. She is an absolute wedding genius. We were originally going to get married in Killarney but after our first meeting she had with us, we booked there and then. The food on the day was amazing and everyone we spoke with after praised the food the wine the service, couldn't even make up a complaint if I tried. Thanks again to everyone just wish we could do it all again.
by Karen & Bertie O' Sullivan on Wed, 16th January, 2019
We got married on sat 21st July and it was beyond all our expectations. The food, staff, atmosphere, rooms, etc were amazing. Our wedding coordinator Madeline was without a doubt the nicest, warmest, friendliest person we have ever met. She was there to answer any questions we had at any time. No question was too big or small. She made us feel at ease and we will be forever grateful for her help and support throughout our planning. We couldn’t have picked a better venue for our big day thanks to all the management and staff.

My lovely wife and I choose the Rose Hotel to hold our reception after our wedding ceremony and we can not recommend The Rose Hotel enough. From the moment we decided to go with the Rose to the moment we checked out after the wedding, our every need was catered for. Madeline the wedding co-ordinater was an absolute joy to deal with and went above and beyond for us many many times. She helped us more then she should have and you can tell she loves her job and genuinely cares about the brides and grooms. The staff were amazing and had a great attention to detail. The packages are very competitive and include things like the wedding car, a ... Read more

A big thank you to The Rose Hotel in Tralee for the amazing wedding venue and incredible food. The hotel is the talk of the town and I can see why! A very special thank you in particular to the very talented lady Madeline Doyle who was extremely helpful while planning our wedding from Australia, she made me us feel so at ease with everything and was my fairy god mother on the day between helping me in and out of my dress, making sure all the bridal party were ok and a true friend on the day. She is an absolute credit to the hotel and I am eternally grateful for everything she done for us. Thanks so much ... Read more

Every single guest we have spoken to since our big day has had nothing but positive remarks to make.

What can we say about the Rose Hotel, the minute we walked in we knew it was the venue for us. We received such a warm welcome from all the staff. Madeleine put us at ease straight away and was always at the end of the phone to answer any queries we had. When I walked into the room on our wedding day I was blown away by how amazing it looked. They had coordinated the bridal party flowers to their room which we loved. Food was amazing In which some people commented was the best food they ever had at a wedding. The staff were always so friendly and nothing was ever too big. Most of the wedding crowd ... Read more

What can we say about our wedding that has not already been said? The answer is nothing. Let's start with Madeleine the wedding co-ordinator who just won best wedding co-ordinator in Kerry for 2018. It was like dealing with a friend rather than a staff member and we now actually consider Madeleine a friend of the family because our experience was so pleasant. No request was too big or small and many came in very late as we had a few setbacks coming up to the wedding but Madeleine was very patient and sorted out all late requests without any bother. We can not thank her enough along with the people that worked with her to create such a special ... Read more

We recently had our wedding in The Rose Hotel (28th Dec 2018) and everything was just perfect from the drinks reception, the meal, the function room, the bridal suite and even breakfast the following morning. It was the first time most of our guests had visited the hotel and they had nothing but positive comments on the hotel and the food.The food was beautiful and the service and the staff were outstanding. We availed of the hotels Rolls Royce which was a real treat and the driver Dave was so friendly and helpful. Madeleine was a pleasure to deal with, she made everything so easy, nothing was too much trouble. We are based in Galway but she was always available ... Read more
by Grainne O' Mahony & Sean Rouine on Wed, 31st January, 2018
Madeleine and staff, What a day!!! From the moment of our first enquiry, we were met with professionalism and dedication. A meeting and an escorted tour of the hotel was organised. We were so in love with the venue and how elegant the refurbishment had turned out. At every turn, there was a talking point ???? After booking, things ran seamlessly from your end, you made yourself available at every turn and was more than helpful, often helping and putting forward suggestions to help make our day special. The meal tasting was out of this world, huge compliments to Odhran, and we were torn trying to wittle down from a wonderful menu! The day itself was run with precision and ... Read more
by Tom Kenny & Mags O' Donnell on Wed, 31st January, 2018
From our first visit to the Rose hotel Madeleine & all the staff involved in our wedding could not have been more helpful or friendly, we were overwhelmed at how helpful and understanding the staff were and how eager they were to lend a hand and provide impartial and invaluable advice whenever we needed it. Madeleine not only offered the highest professional level of service but did so in a manner that had all involved beyond relaxed and at ease from day one. The day of the wedding was beyond our expectations and our guests were treated to amazing food in the most idyllic settings. We can only highly recommend The Rose Hotel for anyone planning their big day. Mags ... Read more

To all the staff at the Rose Hotel Tralee, Just a quick message to say a huge thank you for all of the hospitality shown to us on our wedding day and indeed over the whole weekend. From the initial booking with Shona and Mark to the food tasting and the wedding day itself we could not have asked for better. The food and service was exceptional and was everything that we could ask for. Each and every member of the staff that we met during our wedding were so obliging and helpful. The atmosphere and ambience in the function room and throughout the hotel was a credit to the staff. All of our guests were really impressed with the ... Read more

From the moment Micheál and I booked our wedding at the Carlton Hotel Tralee we were treated like we were the only couple who had a wedding at the hotel. Orla the wedding co-ordinator was fantastic, she was always on the other side of the phone or email ready to answer any questions or queries we had. Absolutely nothing was a problem, we really wanted a champagne tower at our arrival reception and the General Manager Barry was there to advise on how it would best work for all of our guests. The night of our wedding tasting all the staff and management were exceptional, the service and food was second to none. The day itself where do I begin, ... Read more

Due to the number of hotels that are available between Tralee & Killarney, the job of deciding on which hotel to celebrate our up-coming wedding appeared daunting. As my fiancé (now husband) is originally from the North of Ireland, we were both conscious of the fact that the distance may limit the numbers travelling. We were on the lookout for a venue that could cater for numbers around the 150 mark, at a competitive price, but not sacrifice on style or quality. This was beginning to seem like an unrealistic target when we decided to check out what was on offer from the Carlton Hotel in Tralee. As neither of us are currently living in Tralee at the moment, many ... Read more

We held our wedding reception at The Carlton Hotel Tralee in June 2012 and we cannot complement the management and staff highly enough. From the first email we received from the wonderful Orla to check-out 2 days after our wedding we were given 5 star service. Planning a wedding from overseas was always going to be challenging but working with Orla took away much of the stress. Nothing was too much, she even Skyped us from home because of the time difference!! On our wedding day we felt very relaxed and were able to enjoy every moment as we knew that Orla and the team had everything under control. The attention to detail at the hotel is amazing, the bedrooms ... Read more

We had our wedding in The Carlton Hotel Tralee on the 8th of September 2012. From the moment we booked we were looked after to the highest standards, any questions or any worries we had were dealt with immediately by Orla Barrero the wedding co ordinator in the hotel. We knew from the minute we booked our wedding we had made the right choice as Orla was so attentive in any ideas we had and didnt hesitate in responding to us immediately she was so friendly and made organising the hotel part of our wedding so easy. On our wedding day everything was run so smoothly we had the most amazing day, there was nothing I would change. There were ... Read more
