The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens has been welcoming couples for over 50 years and is renowned for its high standards of personalised and professional service in an exceptional location with exquisite cuisine.

The magnificent property is situated on its own 64 acre estate in Beaufort, Co. Kerry overlooking the iconic Gap of Dunloe, the River Laune and is a short drive from Killarney town. The Dunloe is a classic yet contemporary 5 star hotel set in beautiful gardens leading to the ruined keep of the old 12th century Dunloe castle.

A red carpet awaits you on arrival where you and guests are welcomed to The Upper Lounge for your wedding drinks reception which offers panoramic views of the surrounding parkland and beyond. When weather permits enjoy your drinks reception al fresco on the Outdoor Terrace area or choose our rustic Thatch Cottage on the 64 acre estate.

With private dining for up to 240 guests, it boasts its own bar, dance area and outdoor terrace area exclusively for you and your wedding guests.

Absolutely the best hotel I was ever in. the Service was outstanding and the hotel atmosphere was fab. Starr were amazing, very helpful and friendly. The Gardens surrounding the hotel were fab. We were there at a wedding but will definitely be making a return trip with the kids.

"Superb hotel - 5 Star+"
This is a magnificently laid-out Hotel in a stunning location. Stayed here recently during a wedding. The layout for the wedding meal was perfect and the meal itself outstanding.
The room was large and comfortable with a balcony from which there was an extraordinary mountain view. The breakfast was one of the best we have had at any hotel with special mention of the Eggs Benedict which was delicious. Also cooked to order which is becoming something of a rarity these days.
The Staff in all areas are wonderful being most helpful and pleasant, led by General Manager Jason who could not do enough for us to make our stay something we will always remember.
This is certainly one of the best Hotels we have ever stayed in. We look forward to a return visit. Fully recommended for an enjoyable and restful stay.

On a few occasions throughout the evening Niamh was a huge help and went out of her way for them. The food and ambience at the…
