Wedding Testimonials

We got married here last Saturday, its an absolutely stunning venue, there is a whole area of the hotel dedicated to weddings, a stunning lantern lit hallway down to the venue and a glass room then with the stunning scenery of Killarney. The food is top class. Most everybody commented on the quality of the food, it was piping hot and they run a silent service. The manager of the hotel Jason was on hand every step of the way keeping everyone calm and having fun with it all. He was amazing, then you have Susan the wedding coordinator that was literally everywhere I turned on hand to do anything we needed. When she was off duty there was Jane to step in. They really do have the experience together to make your day perfect. You have Olga over the rooms who cannot do enough for you and Jackie on reception who's quirky and great fun. If I'd to do it all again in the morning I wouldnt look anywhere else. I really can't praise this hotel enough and thank you for the amazing memories.

We had our wedding in the Heights Hotel in July 2022 and it was the most amazing day! We couldnt have thanked them enough. It was really good value for what we got too and the day felt special from beginning to end. The bar is really big there and the dance floor was filled all night. The ballroom is just stunning!

For anyone considering the Heights Hotel Killarney for their wedding we cannot recommend them highly enough. From the very start we fell in love with the hotel and the lovely friendly atmosphere you feel when you walk in there. There is a beautiful drinks reception area and walkway/ballroom area. We were originally to get married May 2020 but due to covid we had to postpone to Aug 2020 and decided no matter what we would get married then. From the very start of planning and up to our wedding  date Jason & Katie kept in continuous contact and kept us updated on the changes needed, they were so helpful throughout and on 20th Aug we had the most amazing wedding day. We want to thank Jason, Katie & all the staff in the heights hotel for the beautiful food & excellent service we received. A number of guests commented saying it was one of the best wedding they had been to. I would highly recommend their day 2 barbacue package also, the food was fantastic and we had a great second day celebrating. Thanks Heights Hotel for giving us a very special day in these strange times.

 What a fantastic time at this hotel for our Son’s wedding. Although we only stayed the night of the wedding on 30th December, we had many guests staying a few more nights. Everyone couldn’t praise the staff enough. Always very obliging and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. They made the stay most enjoyable. Keep it up, you deserve it.

 Writing this on our honeymoon, but honestly felt we had to share it! When it came to booking a venue, we as most couples do went and looked at several hotels. When it came to viewing the heights we instantly knew this was going to be the one. As soon as we walked in we were made to fell at home, from the reception staff right through to the bar staff waiting to meet with the wedding planner. I cannot stress how nothing we wanted was an issue, some hotels make restrictions etc and all we were told was it's our day, and what we want the hotel will make happen! Naturally we booked our wedding and over the coming months felt real at ease organising all the details despite living in Cork. We arrived the night before and instantly were greeted on a first name basis throughout the hotel, something small but when the bar staff know your name, it certainly made me feel at home. On our wedding day there were lots of little bits to set up as always. The groomsmen running round trying to sort it all. Just as we were getting a bit stressed, staff from the hotel came and asked what was to be done, told us go and relax and took care of it! That was the theme of the entire day, nothing was to much trouble and the overwhelming message to us as the bride and groom was relax...we will take care of it all. We had our ceremony in the hotel, which was amazing. Then we moved to the conservatory, believe me it's worth stopping in just to see this yourself. After the drinks reception it was back to the room. What a transformation. It was everything we wanted and more. Food and drink flowed and its was beautiful. On day 2 we were met with champagne and orange juice and the same friendly faces in the bar looking after our every need. Hotel organised music, we had another fantastic meal and a proper sing song till the early hours. This hotel surpassed all our expectations. My only advice is, if like us you are planning your wedding and looking at hotels, please add the Killarney Heights to your list to go and see. You wont regret it!

When we were searching for venues we did what most couples do, we picked our budget and what we wanted from our day and shortlisted our venues. The Heights Hotel took the lead from the beginning. We visited for a wedding fair and just fell in love. In love with the venue, with the views and with the amazing staff whom were all friendly and so professional. We booked it that day because we just knew it was the venue for us. No it doesn't have fairy light backdrops or colourful uplighting that many venues offer but for us, breath taking views and the natural light was exactly us. The emphasis was put on how it was our day, our wedding and the hotel would help us do it our way. We are from Cork and with both of us working full time and having two small kids, trips up and down to Killarney weren't an option, thankfully it didn't have to be. We arrived on the Friday night, where we were met with smiles, the reception staff, the bar staff, everyone was a pleasure to deal with. We ate in the bar on the Friday night and the food was amazing even then. We sat outside as it was beautiful weather and the staff would stop for a chat while collecting glasses and one bar man Mark was very witty and funny, the bridesmaids nearly invited him to the wedding. On our wedding day there were lots of last minute table plan changes and things that should stress you out, but no, the staff has solutions to whatever issue we brought. Honestly, as a bride and groom we thought we'd have more to do, we thought we'd have to sort things but no, the team were just on fire. We had our ceremony in the hotel, which was nothing short of beautiful, their set up is fab, lanterns lining the alise and just a relaxed theme to the whole thing. The drinks reception conservatory is just beautiful, one of the plus sides was having the option to provide our own beer for it, the set up is great and the donut wall is just icing on the cake. After the drinks reception we went back to the ceremony room, the set up is lovely, the table centre pieces were beautiful, the placement of everything from the Mr & Mrs sign (which is provided by the hotel), the sweet cart had a divider so it was reasonably hidden from our 17 child guests and the tables were just beautifully set up. The dinner was amazing Rachel waited on the top table and she was so friendly and again a bit of banter which worked so nicely for our day. The food really was phenomenal and we had guests with stomachs like bottomless pits telling us how impressed they were about portion sizes! As we stumbled to bed at 515am, we were met at reception by the night porter whom took our room service order for the morning before we fell into the bridal suite, which, I must stay is nothing short of luxurious. Finally, if I had to give a bride and groom any advise when planning their wedding it would be, book The Heights Hotel.

We had our wedding reception at the Heights hotel in June. We were delighted we chose this venue! The room itself is so bright and airy thanks to all the windows, and the room was decorated beautifully on the day. All the staff are so friendly, and a special mention to the chefs, who provided us with fabulous food on the day. Thank you to and all the staff at the Heights Hotel, for giving us a day and night we will never forget!

I got married on the 1st June 2019 and I have to say it was made so much more special due to the staff and the set up at the hotel. On the run up to the wedding nothing was a problem and they made me so relaxed and assured that the day would run smooth. It was a humanistic ceremony in the hotel and the room set up was stunning. after this the guests were brought to the amazing drinks reception area to enjoy beverages before being brought back into the dining room where they had a meal of beef and Hake. Every guest commented on how beautiful the food was and how fast the service was. As it was the same day as the champion league final the hotel were able to live stream the game into the room during the meal at my request. Like I said nothing was a problem. I would highly recommend and future brides planning a wedding to please check out this hotel Thank you again to all the staff for everything you did.

We had our wedding in the Heights in April 2019. As we are living in London when we first started planning our wedding day we booked a weekend in Killarney to view several potential venues. The lovely, bright and spacious wedding reception room was what really sold the Hotel to us as well as the friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We could not fault the hotel, they made organising a wedding from London very easy. We did 3 nights in the hotel - the night before the wedding, the night of the wedding and the night after. The staff were extremely attentive and nothing was ever too much trouble. Not only were both families well looked after but so many of our guests have commented on the great service and how brilliant the staff were throughout their stay there. The morning of the wedding they had an area set up for the bridal party to have our hair and make up done. They served us breakfast there and were constantly popping in to make sure we were okay and had everything we needed. It was so relaxing and enjoyable having nothing to worry about the morning of the wedding and having everyone together in the one place. The wedding day itself was amazing and everything ran to plan, the food was outstanding and the service during the reception was faultless - many guests are still talking about the dinner! It was just fantastic from start to finish. We had our day two at the hotel as well and again the staff were great and nothing was ever too much hassle. I would highly recommend the Heights to anyone who is thinking of getting married in Killarney!
