I confirm that I have stayed at The Dunloe Hotel on the specified dates and my review is my honest opinion based on my personal experience of this property.

July 2011
In July 2011 we had the pleasure of having our wedding in the Hotel Dunloe Castle, Killarney. The entire process was such an enjoyable experience, stress free from beginning till end, and was made possible not only by the entire staff of the hotel but, in particular by the manager Mr. Jason Clifford. From our very first meeting, to our heartfelt departure he was the epitome of composure, confidence and sophication. He was always honest, considerate and helpful when it came to finalising our day. No task was too small or too large and he was a pillar of pure professionalism at all times. The advice Jason gave us on various points highlighted his better judgement which can only come from experience and I cannot articulate how much we appreciate his expertise. His staff were equally as efficient and eager to help in whatever way possible. From beginning the task of choosing a venue to host our wedding celebration appeared to be a difficult one, but in hindsight it turned out to be quite easy. As the Munster region, and Kerry in particular, has a well deserved reputation for being Ireland's premier wedding destination the responsibility of picking just one venue seemed daunting. However, as soon as we arrived in The Hotel Dunloe Castle we knew it was special. It exuded sophication, elegence and 5-star luxury. The scenery is spectacular and all our guests felt like they were in a tranquil paradise far from the hustle and bustle of busy city life. It's the perfect location to immerse yourself in the fabulous activities the hotel and the region has to provide, making you and your guests feel like celebrities. Another major influencing factor for choosing Hotel Dunloe Castle was the high quality of the food. I can honestly say that we've never experiencing this standard and presentation of food at a wedding before. Every guest was completely satisfied and the wine complimented it to perfection. The unique evening food proved a hugh success also. 5 stars doesn't do it justice!!!! The wedding day itself ran to schedule for the most part, but Jason had everything under control when things didn't go according to plan. There was no room for any 'Bridezilla' antics as the staff were completely diligent and hard-working. The staff made everyone feel so welcome and important that many ended up extending their stay or even made reservations for the future. A true testament to the level of luxury it provides. Finally, a wedding in The Hotel Dunloe Castle is an exceptionally special thing. It's the whole package - the perfect location for photographs, mouth watering food, outstanding service and ultimate luxury. Once you experience a wedding here, I can honestly say, you will not want to go anywhere else.
June 2011
We had our wedding at Hotel Dunloe Castle in June 2011 and it was wonderful from start to finish. Dunloe has the advantage of being a very plush and luxurious hotel, but with no sense of the stiffness that you get in many 5 star hotels. This is due to the fantastically warm and friendly staff who go out of their way to make you feel thoroughly at home. They are very experienced at weddings and provided a smooth and polished service. The planning phase was effortless for us, as it was clear from very early on that we were in good hands. We had a fabulous experience on the day itself, everything ran perfectly and there was a great sense of calm and relaxation. The function room was laid out beautifully, and having the dancefloor in the middle worked really well. Once the dancing had ended, we had a big sing song that went on until the early hours and there was no pressure on us to leave the function room. Our guests raved about the food, which was exquisite, as well as the breath-taking scenery to be viewed from every angle of the hotel. Those who stayed overnight were also delighted with the absolute luxury of their rooms. I can't wait to go back for more pampering for our anniversary! Thanks to everyone at Dunloe for making our wedding so special.
