I went to Kippure Estate with a couple of my fellow acquaintances during August 2016. We had been searching for the perfect destination to meet up and have some craic. Kippure seemed like the place. However, as we entered the property our dreams of great joy were over. The reception was burned down. Literally. Instead we were greeted by desultory...

Dear ReliableReviewers, We were dismayed to read your review. It is disappointing that you have taken so long to review us so negatively, waiting until January 2017 to review such a bad experience you apparently had back in August 2016. We have tried very hard to find a group booking that matches your description. Unfortunately, we have not been able...

Disappointed at the level of customer service provided. Never received a final response to an email query raised in respect of room price! Some attendants at a wedding party were charged half of what I was charged for the same type of accommodation. The room was also a small room with two single beds and the bed covers were dirty....

Hi Jen D., my name is Cary and I’m in charge of the weddings here at Kippure Estate. I don’t usually get involved when it comes to the accommodation end of things, but felt that I should address your comments as best I can. First of all, I can assure you that you were not charged any more than any...

If you are looking for a memorable, magical, unique location to get married- this is the spot! We had a destination wedding here all the way from Chicago. While planning a wedding virtually can be a bit intimidating, the team at Kippure Estate truly can gather who you are and what you want all through email. Everyone we dealt with...

Hi Aine and Dave, thanks so much for your great review! It’s always very nice to hear from a couple that they enjoyed working with me from the day they booked until the wedding day, because that can be up to 2 years or more!

We got married here on the 1st of Oct. We had an absolute ball! Kippure is exactly what we wanted it to be which was laid back and relaxed but with great food, great staff and amazing scenery. Well we got that and more. The food was amazing. We had the "pig on a spit" which was fantastic and so...

Hi Pete and Jess, I’m extra happy to read your great review…as you mentioned, we had to plan a lot of your wedding from a distance, so I probably didn’t get to personally know you as much as I do some couples.

We have just returned from Kippure having attended a friends wedding. The location is stunning, the staff were very helpful and the food was perfect, we stayed in a really comfortable house (number 6) where the beds were to comfortable. I would highly reccomend Kippure to anyone considering a wedding with a twist.

As a wedding venue, this might be great when the weather is good, but unfortunately that did not happen. The fact that the house had burned down did not help the overall appearance of the place in the rain. In terms of the food, I have nothing bad to say, but the standard of the accommodation is very poor for...
