"We worked closely with the management at the Castlerosse Hotel from our first visit in October 2016 until our wedding day on 19th August 2017. The venue's quiet setting and views of Killarney's lake and mountains is unrivalled. Mark and Michael were very helpful throughout our preparations and on the day itself, always available to answer any queries we had, and accommodating with any additional requests. Our welcome drinks and reception ran smoothly throughout. The food was excellent, plenty of everything, very tasty and exactly as we had requested following our tasting in June. Over half our 130 guests had travelled from London, New York and South America, and these guests in particular were blown away at the exceptional quality of the venue and everything provided for by the Castlerosse over the weekend. Thank you for helping make our big day so memorable John & Michelle O'Mahony"

"Got married here on the 1/4/17 and have to say I couldn't recommend it enough Michael, Mark and all the staff were an absolute pleasure to work with. They couldn't do enough to help us. They were very quick to respond to emails, calls or just if we wanted to call in for a chat. The whole day went off without a hitch and all our guests were delighted. The portion sizes were fantastic and everyone was raving about the quality and the efficiency of the staff. The rooms were fantastic and I couldn't recommend the golf lodges for families enough. The views and the general surroundings were outstanding and really contributed to the whole weekend. I would not hesitate to book the hotel for any event I was holding and will definitely be calling to stay for any nights away with my husband."

"We got married on the 3rd sept 2016 and what a fantastic time we had.. When we decided to get married in Oct 2015 it was an easy choice to have the Castlerosse Hotel as our venu for the ceremony and the reception. As we lived in the UK we knew it would be a challenge to arrange an Anglo -Irish wedding. We were so wrong ...it was easy from emailing the lovely Joan for all our accommodation requirements to the very fabulous Michael and Mark for our wedding planning. Everyone was a joy to work with and it went so smoothly... We had 80 guests and most were from the UK who loved every minute of their little breakaway.They loved the food,the scenery, the staff, the hotel and the wedding itself.Everything was pristine from beginning to end and it would not have been possible without Joan whom we truly appreciated for all her hard work.Mark,Michael and their staff for their perfect attention to detail while all the time making sure our guests were taken care of which made our day so special. Thanks a million for everything. Eileen & Jeff Hack."

"I had my wedding at the Castlerosse Hotel in August 2016 and it was the most perfect magical day and place to celebrate my wedding . The service from the staff was excellent. The support and valuable advice from the manager was excellent and i had instant responses with any of my many questions. The honeymoon suit was fabulous and it also catered for my two young children on the night of the wedding. The food was excellent on the day of the wedding, we also had our day after party at the Castlerosse and this was an ideal setting for a drink and food."
Eleanor & Alan, 19th August 2016
"I cannot recommend the Castlerosse enough! It was absolutely amazing, from the first day I booked until the morning after our wedding. A very special thank you especially to Michael O Sullivan who made ours and our guests experience at the Castlerosse so unforgettable. With Michael's help and guidance throughout the planning from the menu to the deco...it was an absolute pleasure to work with him and experience the final result of his hard work. Also a big thank you goes to the staff of the Castlerosse. They were so nice and helpful with a great work ethic and attitude. The other reason we chose the Castlerosse was the location. It's so beautiful and tranquil. Overlooking the beautiful lakes and mountains it was perfect for photos and especially beautiful to to view as we ate our fantastic meal and danced the night away! For a beautiful and unforgettable wedding day experience I would highly recommend the Castlerosse for its beautiful scenery and location , amazing food and helpful and kind staff."
Elaine & Mikael, 24th June 2016
"The Perfect Day! Wow, where do I start....from the beginning at the open day I knew I felt comfortable, relaxed and amazed at the wonderful scenery and that the Castlerosse was the place for our wedding....I certainly was not disappointed. The staff are amazing from all the enquiries via email as organised our wedding from The UK to all The finishing touches and decor on the day and the smooth running of everything. They really did take the pressure off so much and assisted with my slightly different ideas re seating plan on bottles haha! Michael and Mark were both superb in helping organise our day ensuring all the little Things were taken care of - nothing is too much for them to do....Mark is quite creative in decorating and putting the extra touch into details. Michael was superb in helping us choose our wedding food and we had comments from nearly all our guests on how superb the food was on the day. It was absolutely delicious. So impressed - 5 Star"
Trish & Tom, 28th May 2016
Wedding date: 30th April 2016. From the moment Ronan and I met Michael over a year ago we were relaxed and confident in choosing the castlerosse hotel as our wedding destination. He was so personal and easy to deal with and in my mind so much superior in attitude to the very 'corporate' meetings we had in other hotels prior to this. Michael assured us that any requests we had could be met (such as alternative beers and spirits for the bar) with ease. In general, prior to the wedding all of our dealings with any of the staff in the Castlerosse were easygoing positive interactions. On the day of our wedding we couldn't get over the hotel in general. We brought 174 guests, mostly from cork but some people had travelled from far and wide. The views that the hotel boast cannot be measured and we were lucky that the sun was shining to add to the beauty. The drinks reception upstairs was amazing and canapés were delicious. Amy, mark and Michael were at hand to talk us through any minor details and just to make sure we were having the best time possible. The meal was delicious and also the other requests that we had, such as crackers and relish etc for our untraditional cheese wedding cake were catered for without a second question. All of our guests were welcomed to the residents bar with friendliness! It was such a spectacular weekend, people are still commenting on how they loved just parking their car on the Friday and whether they were staying in the lovely cottages or hotel rooms , they didn't have to look at their cars again until the Monday! We will definitely be revisiting the castlerosse hotel and would recommend it with praise to anyone considering it for their wedding, PS the bridal suite is amazing!
Louise & Ronan, 30th April 2016
We would highly recommend the Castlerosse for your wedding. Mike, Mark, Amy and all the staff were so helpfull to us. Whether it was midday or midnight I could always contact someone if I had a question. Our 5yr old son fell in love with Amy the first day he saw her. From the first day we went into the Castlerosse hotel to check it as a venue we were treated like family and made feel so special. From choosing our package to the food and wine, to picking style we wanted and little touches around the place Mike and Amy did everything they could to make it happen for us. Both myself and Dave are easygoing and fairly relaxed and we wanted our wedding to be like that as well - Mike and Amy made that happen for us from when things ran a little behind right down to when family (who knew what menu was) couldn't decide about which dessert they'd have so we decided to put all 3 three together and making the package for tayto sandwiches :-) We had gone to other hotels but without a doubt the Castlerosse and all staff were perfect. The stunning views of the lakes, plenty of accommodation, drinks reception, the wonderful meal that was put in front of us (which was complimented on by everyone of our family and friends), the baloons that were given to the children, everything was perfect.. Our day flew and everything went off like a dream. Thanks Mike and Amy for making our day so special for us.. We'll be calling down to see ye when we can.

"We got married on Friday September the 11th 2015 and had our reception at the Castlerosse Hotel Killarney. I cannot compliment this place enough, it was absolutely amazing from start to finish. We dealt with Michael O'Sullivan (food & beverage manager) and I must say he was a pleasure to deal with throughout the year when we were planning right up to our special day, nothing was every a problem and he assisted us in every way. The food & wine was absolutely amazing and again we cannot compliment it enough, there was no delays and it was served on time, all our guests are still talking about it. It was the best day of our lives, everything ran smoothly. If you are getting married we would recommend this place highly, you will not be disappointed. The views and location of this hotel really makes it special.
Very Happy Newlyweds
Louise & Peter Devane"

"We held our Wedding and Reception here on 21st August. From the start Michael O'Sullivan and staff could not have been more helpful. We had to organise the wedding from a long distance as we both live in London but wanted to have our special day in Killarney as the old man is a local Killarney boy. The majority of the arrangements had to be made by phone and e-mail as we could only visit twice before the actual event. The setting was perfect, the ceremony being held upstairs meant we had the best views of the lakes with our drinks reception next door. The dining room was decorated perfectly and extra guest accommodated with no problems at all. We had quite a few children at the wedding, they were also catered for with their own menu so no one went hungry, and we still have friends raving about the quality of the food and service. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to have a wedding in Killarney. Thank you Michael and all for making our day go so smoothly!"
Tina & Albert, 21st August 2015
"From our very first meeting, the personal care and attention to detail in every aspect, was impeccable. We felt that Michael and Mark took a personal interest in us and our side of our wedding day. They quickly put us both at ease; every question and every concern were fully attended to no matter how small and they were available on the phone or by email to us, always, usually answering the same day. On the day itself, absolutely nothing was overlooked, and the high standard of service and continued care towards our guests was outstanding. Michael and Mark, and Amy in the evening, were very vigilant to ensure the smooth running of the entire reception. Throughout the day, staff congratulated us or introduced themselves to us if they could be of further assistance. Every item of miscellany - from the bride's bouquet, other bouquets, guests' gifts including cards, various bags and personal items - were all carefully looked after and safely stored. The food was first class with many guests telling us how much they loved it. The portions were certainly plentiful. The evening spread, including the cake, was also very generous and well received. We're particularly grateful to Michael for his openness and flexibility in helping our evening run smoothly, and for his coordination with the best man, given the progressive late running of our evening entertainment. Overall, what a great experience! We can't recommend the Castlerosse highly enough, and thank the management and staff from the bottom of our hearts for a truly memorable time."

"We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at the Castlerosse hotel on the 11th of April 2015. The lake and mountain views formed a stunning backdrop for the ceremony. The meal was "spot on", delicious and generously proportioned. Our guests have not stopped complimenting us on our wedding, many saying it was one of the most enjoyable weddings they have been at. The Castlerosse Hotel delivered in every way, from the food to the atmosphere to the breathtaking scenery. We could not have found a better place for our wedding. Thank you to all at the Castlerosse for helping to make our wedding day so memorable for the right reasons. Gavin and Sarah."

"The Castlerosse Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding on 31st May 2014. Mark and Michael were brilliant at ensuring everything
went to plan and all the staff were pleasant and helpful. Everything from the ceremony to the reception was flawless and grounds set the scene for some beautiful photographs. All our guest were very complimentary about the food and accommodation. We would highly recommend this venue to any couple. Aisling and Dara"

"From our first visit to the Castlerosse we knew this was the venue for us. The function room was elegantly decorated and of course the stunning view out over lake and mountains behind is spectacular. The drinks reception area upstairs also shares this view was the perfect place for us to mingle with our guests before the meal. The hotel is easy to find and get to just lying outside Killarney on the Killorglin (Fossa) road. There is a range of accommodation available from holiday homes to hotel rooms. It boasts excellent facilities such as 9 hole golf course, gym, swimming pool, wifi etc. Our guests were delighted to book in and stay the night and some made a weekend out of it. We had 165 guests which is the ideal size for a wedding here. To accommodate this number a few different table size were arranged in the room such round tables of 8 and 10 and long straight tables of 14. The quality of the good is second to none and we are still receiving very positive feedback from our guests on the food and meal options we went for. Also the late evening food was very much enjoyed by our guests and there was more than enough supplied. The change over from dining room to music and dancing venue was quick and seemless and gave people a chance to mingle and talk before the band were ready to begin the playing. In the months and weeks leading in to the wedding Michael O'Sullivan (Food & Beverage Manager) was only ever a phone call or email away. I usually emailed him and got a response within a couple of hours. We are so happy we made the right choose of venue and would recommend it to anyone."

"We had our wedding in the wonderful Castlerosse Hotel in July 2014 last. It was a great day and the support on the day we got from the hotel staff was amazing to ensure it was a wonderful and experience. We started planning our wedding approximately 10 months before the day and the support Michael and his colleagues gave us before the day in planning was great. I knew the hotel very well but my husband did not however when he met Michael and seen what was on offer- the hotel including the food menu options, golf facilities all on the backdrop of the Kerry mountains and lakes he too was reassured with the booking. We were planning the wedding from Scotland and had guests travelling from all over the world so the various means of communication available to us to plan the day in particular via email made the whole procedure planning it effortless, seamless and with minimal stress. Thank you to all the staff. The guests who attended were delighted with the hotel, facilities and friendly reception from the staff especially guests who travelled from as far as Australia. We would definitely recommend this hotel anytime for any occassion."
Sile & Stephen, 5th July 2014
"Our wedding day was simply brilliant. The management team in the castlerosse in both the build up to our wedding and on the day itself made everything so relaxed and smooth running for us. We were looked after so so well. The efficiency, professionalism of the hotel staff was equally noticed by our guests. An absolute pleasure to deal with. Thank you!"
