On December 6th 2014, I and my husband got married. We had our reception in the Earl of Desmond. From making enquiries straight through to checking out the day after the wedding, everything was a pleasure. The staff were always friendly when you would go in, service was always great and nothing was ever any trouble.

The hotel made the wedding feel so personal, you knew that they genuinely wanted the best for your day, instead of just the money. When we arrived to the hotel after the photos we were greeted by Norella and glasses of champagne for the bridal party. Attention to detail to everything to me, and the hotel had everything under control, from the heating to the drinks reception to the layout of the ballroom... Everything was done to perfection (and I'm a tough woman to please!!!).

All our guests really enjoyed the day and the food was absolutely delicious, service was amazing, everybody ate together and the tables were all cleared together.
The hotel had no problem in catering for any dietary requirements, which was great not having to worry about what ingredients were used.

The night went without a glitch, and everybody really enjoyed themselves.

The room was fabulous, and breakfast in bed was just what the doctored ordered, after dancing the night away.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone who is getting married, without a shadow of doubt in my mind. Thanks you to all the staff members who truly made this a day and night to remember, we will be forever grateful!

Would recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling to Tralee in Kerry. I am a regular there over 30 years and having said that I also had my wedding there, The hotel Staff are very friendly and professional in what they do. I have nothing bad to say about this hotel and to me it’s no longer a hotel only home from home.
