Eighteen months ago myself and my now husband got engaged, there was no doubt in our minds, when deciding on a venue for our reception, we wanted the Killarney Oaks hotel!!!! It's been just over a week since we celebrated our wedding there, little did we know that we would need them more than ever the day before we were to marry.
About 2pm on the day before we were to wed, the electricity and water went from my home place!!! I actually could not tell you the last time this ever happened, I know, you just couldn't write it!!! Anyway it happened, with my bridesmaids and myself just freshly tanned, we were in bad need for a shower to get rid of the excess tan. There was no sign of water or electricity returning any time soon, so we were left with no other option but to vacate my home place.
Thankfully, the Killarney Oaks Hotel came to our rescue, they kindly offered my family and I and my fake tanned bridesmaids with a beautiful, modern, bright and spacious holiday home, with the most amazing showers by the way. By the time we arrived at 10 o'clock that night, the staff welcomed our weary heads in with open arms. They could not have been more helpful and reassuring from the start, as they helped us with all our bags and surprised us with chilled champagne to help us relax after what should have been a relaxing day. Before we knew it we were laughing at what happened earlier that day.
No matter what we needed the killarney oaks were at the other end of the phone. I actually can not praise the killarney oaks hotel staff enough!! We had the best day of our lives. From all the dedicated, hard working management and staff, who were not only professional, but were such great fun too. And what can I say about the food, WOW, we are still smacking our lips, it was absolutely tantalisingly good!!!
Thank you so very much to the amazing propieters, management, Chefs and kitchen staff, bar staff, waitering staff, receptionists, accommodation, cleaners and night porters, everyone of you made us feel so special.
If you are looking for the wedding of your dreams, we would highly recommend the Killarney Oaks Hotel. Truly magical, family run, 4 star hotel with 5 star standards!!!
From Mr.and Mrs. Kelliher xx

I cannot praise this hotel enough. Staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. The restaurant was lovely with fantastic food. We were on a Shearings coach holiday and stayed here for 4 nights. I have no complaints at all. Excellent. Shame we could not say the same about the weather! It rained every day
Wonderful Wedding Venue

We stayed for five nights recently for a wedding in Killarney and were very impressed by the hotel. Our room was tastefully decorated and fitted out. The bathroom was good and had a good supply of towels not always the case in many 4 star hotels.
The staff were all friendly and helpful and the food in the bar was good and a nice place to eat.
The wedding reception was marvellous. The food for approx 250 people was tasty and HOT. It was well served and we were well attended to by the staff.
We were also impressed by the condition of the hotel. The decor was in excellent condition and everywhere was spotlessly clean.
Wonderful stay, great time in Acorn Bar

We had a lovely 2 day stay at Killarney Oaks, part of our 8 day tour in Ireland. Wonderful considerate staff throughout. Delicious food, beautiful rooms. An extra shout out to bar staff Kirstie who was not only an awesome server she made a fun evening out even more enjoyable, she was a joy, with a fun loving personality+.

My wife and I stayed in the hotel for a weekend 2 weeks ago. The rooms in my opinion were very basic but nice. We decided to eat in the bar the Friday night. When we came into the bar we were acknowledged immediately and offered food menus by a young man called Kevan. We were seated and Kevan took a drinks order.He was extremely professional and could tell that he had been working in the industry for quite some time. We are quite fussy eaters but Kevan had no issues with this which was very nice and put us at ease straight away which deciding what to choose. The food was very nice. Kevan checked on us at least 3 times while eating to ensure everything was ok and to replace our drinks(once again extremely professional) With the positive experience we decided to eat at the bar on Saturday night also. If you are looking for top class service while having dinner, ask for Kevan to serve you. He made our experience in the bar very good and for that reason I will be recommending to friends and family that are looking for somewhere to stay for a weekend.
