Wedding Booking Terms & Conditions
If you are interested in holding a wedding date, we can hold a date for you provisionally without obligation for 14 days. We automatically release provisional bookings after 14 days, unless an extension is agreed.
When you are ready to confirm the wedding date, we ask that a deposit of €2000 is paid. A further €2000 must be paid six months before your wedding. The remaining part of your wedding bill must be settled before departing the hotel after your wedding. Deposits & Wedding Bills can be settled by Cash, Bank draft or credit card (excluding American Express). We regret that we do not accept cheques.
If a couple wish to move their wedding date after the deposit has been paid, the deposit is transferrable to another date, as long as it is at least 9 months before the original date is due to take place. Dates can only be changed within 9 months of the date in exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of the General Manager.
Muckross Park Hotel will only host one wedding per day. However, the Hotel reserves the right to contract other events in other function rooms on the same day.
Approximate numbers attending the wedding will be discussed at booking stage. An updated number attending should be given to the hotel one month prior to the wedding. The final table plan should be submitted to the Hotel two days before the wedding. This will be the minimum number you will be charged for on the day.
With the exception of the Wedding Cake & Wines, no other Food & Beverage can be brought into the hotel, without the prior consent of the General Manager.
Prices are valid for 2013 & 2014. Prices are subject to change up to a maximum of 10%, as a result of extraordinary increases in cost. Prices may also change due to changes in VAT rates.
