We recently visited Knockranny house hotel for a friend's wedding. It was our second visit to the hotel for a wedding and it didn't disappoint either time.
The grounds of the hotel are fabulous. Our room on this occasion faced out to the grounds and it was a lovely view. They are very well maintained.
The room in the hotel was lovely. The bed was very, very comfortable. The styling is a bit old maybe but it is very clean and spacious.
The breakfast room has an amazing view of Croagh Patrick which would be enough to make me forget if the breakfast was poor...but it isn't, it's very good. Plenty of options with the buffet and full Irish breakfast from the kitchen.
As a wedding venue, we enjoyed it both times as guests. The main hall is very large (this wedding was 220 people), the dance floor is quite big and most importantly the bar is in the same room! (so people aren't off in a different room to the party). I can't comment on the noise created from weddings as I've been part of them both time but that would be a concern for me if I was staying and not part of a wedding.
The Location is perfect as it is right at the entrance to the lovely town of Westport. If you are climbing it is a 5 minute drive to the base of Croagh Patrick and the beach another few minutes past that.
The only complaint I have about Knockranny would be the price. Although the hotel is fabulous, both times I've just felt it was a bit pricey.
