People Say The Kindest Things

From the beginning of our wedding planning, we knew that Kilronan was the only venue we wanted for our wedding reception. Having been to the hotel on numerous occasions, we always felt there was something special about Kilronan and we were not disappointed! We started off by meeting with Shayne who was very helpful but also relaxed and in no way pushy which we immediately loved. We then met Clare at our menu tasting who shortly after, took over our wedding planning and had the same easy going nature as ourselves while still being incredibly organised and professional. She was always quick to respond to any queries we had and made the whole process as stress free as possible. Clare gave us great advice in the lead up and understood from the outset that we wanted to keep our day simplistic and relaxed with good food, good music and a great night for our guests. I have to commend the bar staff in Kilronan, for such a large number of guests, the bar was incredibly well ran and staff were efficient which made for very happy guests. Many people commented after the wedding on how much they enjoyed the venue, especially those who had never visited Kilronan before. A big thank you to the team at Kilronan and we would be happy to recommend the venue to any future brides and grooms.

Mary & Paul McElhone – 3rd February 2023


We got engaged in March 2022 and went to Kilronan a week later to have a “look around” and had booked our date for January 2023 before we left – we were that blown away with what was on offer and the friendly/relaxed/excited manner we were met with. From start to finish, over the 10 months, both Shayne and Jessica were a dream to work with. No request or query was ever too much and it was always met with a very prompt reply. Our food tasting experience was amazing and we never thought that the standard of service and food could be that good for 280+ guests on our big day but it was that and so much more. As for the actual day, the whole team at Kilronan were absolutely incredible from the moment we arrived to departing the following day. The waiting staff, service, food and beverages were all 10/10. Our guests have all been so complimentary about the whole day and about the warm vibe and buzz around the hotel. We cannot wait to go back to Kilronan to celebrate each milestone (no matter how small – any excuse). Thank you so much to all the team and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Aisling & Tony Taylor – 28th January 2023


We honestly could not recommend Kilronan Castle more as a wedding venue. It was the first venue we visited and we decided there and then we had found our venue – we were so happy with everything that we cancelled every other viewing we had booked. The venue itself is stunning especially at Christmas time with all the decorations and the grounds are perfect for outdoor photographs. The staff are amazing, the wedding team in the run up to our wedding, Monica, Shayne, Rachel and Marianne were always on hand to answer any queries we had and made the whole planning experience so enjoyable. The service provided by the kitchen/bar/waiting staff on the day was also second to none and so many guests have since commented on the excellent service received as well as the beautiful meal. We were delighted with how everything went on the day and the hotel made our wedding everything we wanted and so much more.

Ellie & Eddie Courtney – 30th December 2022


Kilronan was the only hotel we viewed after we got engaged 3 years ago. We knew from the minute we got engaged it was always going to be Kilronan. We were due to get married in 2021 but unfortunately due to covid we decided to postpone a year. We emailed Clare our concerns and requested for change of date to the following year. Clare was amazing and really put me at ease. I knew we had made the right decision. From the initial meeting with Clare , we were so happy to have her as our wedding coordinator. Clare really is amazing at her job and was always so approachable and any queries or questions we had she was always so prompt with replies. Our wedding day was amazing from start to finish , Kilronan looked absolutely stunning with all the decorations. The food was beautiful, service, staff , EVERYTHING ! Kilronan, thank you so much for making our wedding day the best.

Hayley & Gavin Kelly – 29th December 2022


From the moment we viewed Kilronan Castle, we knew it was the place for us. The venue was decorated beautifully for Christmas which allowed us to instantly visualise how stunning a winter wedding would be at Kilronan. On the day of our wedding everything was perfect. The staff were friendly and professional and couldn’t be faulted. The food was exceptional from start to finish and the entire meal was coordinated to perfection. We would also like to give very special word of thanks to our wedding co-ordinator Jessica. We couldn’t speak highly enough of Jessica and all she did for us throughout our whole experience, up to and including our wedding day. Jessica went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day of our lives and we are very grateful to her. We look forward to returning to Kilronan Castle!

Emma & Sean Weafer- 22nd December 2022


We chose Kilronan Castle for our wedding venue back in 2018, we knew from the moment we visited the beautiful castle that it was the one. We were instantly taken aback by the exceptional service and stunning setting of the castle. Our wedding was postponed three times due to the pandemic. It was an exceptionally difficult decision to make each time, although Jessica our wedding coordinator could not have been more supportive and understanding throughout. The kindness and compassion that was shown to us from Jessica throughout these four years will always stay with us. Exhausted from the wait we decided to get married while restrictions were in place, with just close family present at our local church in 2021. We had our wedding party at Kilronan Castle this December 2022. Considering we were officially married a year and a half when we finally got to celebrate with friends and family the day was somewhat unusual. Nevertheless, from start to finish, it couldn’t have gone better for us. Jessica and the staff at Kilronan did an exceptional job at looking after us. The food was outstanding, our guests are still waxing lyrical about it. The table service was second-to-none. The pre-wedding dinner rehearsal was perfectly relaxed and enjoyable. The attention to detail that was shown to us from Jessica and all the team was extraordinary. We are still beaming about how it all went and it was certainly worth the wait! Thank you so much to Jessica and all the wonderful staff at Kilronan Castle. We will be sure to visit again soon and we will cherish our memories forever.

Hollie & William Halligan – 16th December 2022


I can’t recommend Kilronan Castle highly enough. We had to postpone our wedding twice due to covid and on both occasions the wedding team were most helpful. Jessica is an excellent wedding coordinator and was so supportive and responsive throughout! Our wedding day was perfect – our guests are still talking about how delicious the food was, how great the service was and the quality of the rooms. The hotel was also beautifully decorated for Christmas. We both felt so well looked after as bride and groom – I wish we could do it all over again!

Lorraine & Justin Storey – 3rd December 2022


We first viewed Kilronan Castle in 2020 and instantly fell in love with the beauty of the castle and the fantastic setting all around it. Monica and Marianne could not have been better with their advice, responses and professionalism throughout our wedding planning. The meal on the day was absolutely beautiful and the staff etiquette was first class/ we had never experienced anything like it before and every guest commented on how brilliant and friendly the servers, bar staff and other hotel staff were. From seating planning to suit guests with mobility difficulties and dietary requirements for other guests we never had any difficulty in contacting anyone from the hotel- they were always extremely supportive and helpful! The hotel was decorated for Christmas and it was like something out of a fairytale, it was absolutely stunning, including the function room. The bedrooms were clean, warm and comfortable- every guest was very happy with their stay. Cannot recommend Kilronan Castle enough, it is such a gem in Ireland and an absolute pleasure to experience. We are so glad we chose Kilronan to have our wedding day, would do it all again in a heartbeat!

Rachel & Sean Daly – 25th November 2022


Right from the start of planning our wedding, the staff at Kilronan Castle were a pleasure to deal with, particularly our wedding coordinator Clare. They made everything so easy for us. Our day went perfectly, it could not have been any better! Our guests were raving about what an amazing venue it is and how helpful and friendly the staff are. The ballroom is stunning and the food is amazing. We love Kilronan Castle and we can’t wait to come back again!

Natasha & Dean Kinane – 5th November 2022


Clare Horgan and her exquisite staff could not have been more attentive. Throughout the entire process there was clear and regular communication with Kilronan Castle and Clare. Every request that I had was fully and perfectly executed. My guests from Ireland and abroad were blown away by the food and great service.

Mallory & Tommie Barrett – 10th September 2022


From the moment we went to view Kilronan Castle Clare Horgan & all the staff couldn’t have made our experience more enjoyable. They went above and beyond for us and we will be forever thankful. Clare was absolutely fantastic, an amazing wedding coordinator and you can tell she really enjoys her job. Also very reassuring & supportive when we had to schedule due to covid restrictions. Nothing was too big an ask. Our day was truly magical and we couldn’t recommend Kilronan Castle more. All of our guests are still talking about how amazing the day was, many saying it was the best wedding they ever attended. The service of all the waiting staff is second to none, the food was out of this world, our honeymoon suite was something dreams are made of. Everything went perfectly and we couldn’t fault anything. We also had our bridal party rehearsal dinner the night before & a more casual day 2 the day after the wedding, again both exceeded our expectations. Thank you again for everything, I wish we could do it all over again. We are both looking forward to returning to Kilronan again soon.

Noelle & Niall Miller – 26th August 2022


Planning a wedding whilst living abroad and during a pandemic was never going to be ideal, however Shayne and the Kilronan Castle Team ensured that our day exceeded our expectations! All queries were dealt with professionally and enthusiastically; the team were always happy to take our personal preferences on board – ensuring that our Wedding Day felt tailor-made. Having our Pre-Wedding Celebration, our Ceremony and Reception in the hotel was a fantastic call. The high standard of food and service remained consistent throughout the two days. Even now, our guests still comment on how fantastic the overall experience was. I cannot recommend highly enough!

Sophia & Patrick McGrath – 14th January 2022


Unfortunately due to the covid 19 pandemic we chose to postpone our wedding twice, eventually celebrating our special day in March of this year with all our family and friends (totally worth the wait!) The wedding team in Kilronan were a dream to work with through the all changes we encountered while always offering an understanding, compassion and support when needed. The team were always at hand to try answer our many questions or even just have a chat in times of so many uncertainties. The process was made very stress free for us and we greatly appreciated it. The kind and friendly welcome we received each time we visit Kilronan left no doubt in our minds our venue was a special one and we were always confident with our choice. On our wedding day we felt no less than the king and queen of our castle, nothing was ever too much trouble for anyone, from the porter to the bar staff to the waiters/waitresses, the wedding team and management. Thank you all! A very special thank you to our wedding planner Monica Feeney for her continued support over the 4 years of our engagement. Her perfection & attention to detail took all the hard work away from us. It will always be a day we will remember. We would do it all over again in a heart beat! All the very best!

Kylie & Niall Flynn – 25th March 2022


We could not find any issues with the service we got at Kilronan from the day we first visited. Shayne Kenny dealt with Monique and myself. We would highly recommend anyone thinking of getting married in Kilronan to ask for Shayne as a wedding coordinator. He went over and beyond to meet our requirements .Even when we were concerned he gave us assurance all would be ok and it was. We are living in London and we had to put a lot of trust in what Shayne advised us

Monique and Declan Carroll – 25th June 2022


We got married in March 2022 and were extremely impressed with Kilronan Castle. All of our guests really enjoyed the few days. The staff, especially Clare Horgan our wedding co-ordinator, were very accommodating, helpful and responsive in the months, weeks and days leading up to wedding, and also afterwards. Food on the day of the wedding and the day after (in the Dungeon Bar) was also excellent. Would highly recommend.

Gareth & Aoife – 19th March 2022


From the moment we viewed Kilronan Castle, we knew it was the place for us. We had the most amazing day. Everything from start to finish was perfect, thanks to all the staff who were outstanding. A special thanks to Jessica who went above and beyond to ensure our day was so special. The food was amazing and was highly praised by all our guests. The castle and grounds are spectacular. We would highly recommend Kilronan as a wedding venue. We look forward to visiting again soon!

Karen & Tighearnach Murphy – 27th August 2022


Everyone in Kilronan Castle was extremely helpful and absolutely delightful to work with. From day 1 when we chose them as our venue, Shayne and Claire made us feel so comfortable. No query was too silly and no request was too big. Everything ran so smoothly because the staff were so good. A stunning location with beautiful people making sure the day is absolutely magical – which it was! Thank you

Sinead & Stephen Beatty – 18th September 2021


Shayne was out wedding coordinator and to say the day ran without fault wouldn’t even begin to describe how perfectly the day went. From the moment we woke up in the morning until we headed for bed in the wee hours, we really got the 5 star treatment. I can’t praise the whole team highly enough.

Avril & Alan Kieran – 16th October 2021


Kilronan Castle gave us the most amazing wedding day it was faultless and I would recommend them to anybody. Clare was our wedding coordinator and she was always so helpful and responsive she made sure the day ran so smoothly. The staff were all so professional and friendly and the food was delicious. We had nothing but positive feedback from our guests.
