Maura did the most amazing job on my flowers for our wedding in August. I was so delighted when I arrived to the church and saw the job she had done on my flower arch outside and everything inside. It was just perfect and I loved absolutely every bit of it. She is so talented and it was such a pleasure to deal with her from the very start, I knew that she knew exactly what she was doing and I wouldn’t be disappointed. I would recommend Maura to anyone looking for an amazing florist! More...

Maura provided us with the most beautiful bouquets and arrangements for our wedding. Maura was an absolute pleasure to deal with and can work around your ideas and budget. I adore flowers and she had so many ideas and can do anything. She is so passionate about flowers and it really comes across in the beautiful attention to detail she provided and the most amazing colour palette in the each arrangement. Maura’s has a lovely personal touch and it is demonstrated in the service she provides with flowers-very earthy, grounded and organic also with a modern and contemporary style. She’s a true professional. I have no hesitation recommending Maura or going back to her for anything else. More...

Maura loves her job and this shines through in her work. She is very welcoming, kind and warm. She will sit with you at the kitchen table in a very relaxed environment with a cup of tea and get to know you and what kind of flowers you like. She does her absolute best to get the flowers exactly right for each occasion. Maura is especially good if you’re not sure what you like and will work with you until your 100% happy. We were beyond delighted with her work, she arranged the flowers to look so natural and the colours she choose were pure perfection. We got so many compliments on the flowers on the day and for days after. I loved my bouquet I couldn’t throw them and so enjoyed them for as long as possible at home. I would highly recommend Maura as she is an exceptionally creative florist and a genuine person. Go raibh míle maith agat Maura. More...

Omg. Maura did the flowers for our medieval themed hand fasting ceremony at Ballyseede Castle and they were awesome. She far exceeded my expectations and the presentation, beautiful. Maura listened to our ideas and flew with them to create a table out of this world. Thank you More...

Maura did the flowers for our wedding , we could not recommend her highly enough, the flowers were beyond beautiful, I wasnt even sure what I wanted but maura met with us, and basically worked on her own initiative to provide flowers that captured exactly what suited us best. I couldnt believe the flowers when I saw them the morning of the wedding, perfect is the only word I could use. Not only the most beautiful flowers, but Maura herself is a beautiful soul. Thank you so much! More...

Maura created such a beautiful array of flowers for our wedding day. As a family friend (former babysitter) it was a pleasure to ask her to do our flowers. At such short notice nothing was a problem and her attention to detail was incredible. Maura thought of everything when I hadn't a clue what was even required. When Maura arrived at my parents house it was really the start of the excitement of the wedding day seeing the bouquet and the array of colour, variety and knowing they were produced just metres away. Maura & Tommy work so hard to give you the best and leave nothing to chance. Thank you so much and keep up the great work. Deirdre & Damien 19th April 2019. More...

We got married on 6th April and one of my absolute favorite parts of the whole day was the stunning flowers that Maura created for us! My bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquet rings were so unique and looked out of this world. Absolutely everybody commented on how amazing all of the flowers were and they definitely suited my personality! Maura and Tommy were an absolute pleasure to work with in the lead up and on the morning, they welcomed us into their home with open arms every time we met them! So glad we chose Maura as our florist and would urge anyone thinking of doing so to book her straight away! More...

Maura did our flowers for our wedding before Christmas and to say her flowers were outstanding is an understatement. Our bouquets, the arrangements in the church, everything right down to the buttonholes were just magnificent and so different. From the first moment we met her for tea and biscuits at her cosy workspace in Ballyroe we knew that she’s a real pro at what she does. Her attention to detail and also to the couples style and preference are what make her the best wedding florist. So many people raved about how beautiful our flowers were. They were so fresh and lasted ages after the wedding. Maura is so easy to deal with, and really listens to what you the clients wants from their flowers. Thanks so much Maura you are amazing!!!

Where to begin....planning a wedding from another country in a venue we had never visited was daunting. We wanted something authentic for a castle wedding and asked Maura to "dress it up" in a way that fit the venue. Boy did she nail it! Flowers were beautifully presented with intricate details and a "wild" look that fit the venue perfectly. The bouquets and buttonholes were fabulous, multiple smaller arrangements decorated the ceremony room and were used again in the main reception room. But best of all was the fireplace display that became a focal point of the ceremony. Wow...the photos of that arrangement made the pictures look like the wedding was really happening in the 16th century. Spectacular! And everything arrived and was set up right on time. Can't ask for more than that! Thank you! Jon and Vivienne Nafie More...

Where to begin!! I could write forever about Maura and her beautiful flowers for our big day!! Having been a keen admirer of Maura’s work for some time it was the only certainty I had when we got engaged that Maura just had to do our flowers!! The flowers were such an important part of our day and Maura was so amazing in helping me find exactly what I wanted! I never could have dreamed up of having such a beautiful bouquet but wow!! On the morning when Maura delivered the flowers we all couldn’t believe how spectacular they were and how well they suited just everything for our wedding! I got so many wonderful compliments on my bouquet and I was blown away by the flowers she made for the church & venue. So many people also commented on how the flowers were “so me” on the day which was so lovely to hear and all thanks to Maura! Her knowledge of flowers and what works well would put you so at ease! I am so so beyond happy we chose Maura and would recommend her to absolutely everyone!!! Also delighted to have Maura as a new friend after it all! Thank you so much Maura! Laura & Shane x More...

Maura did our flowers for our wedding recently. Her creations were simply stunning. They were delicate, intricate and works of art. The button holes to the bouquets exceeded far beyond our expectations. All the guests commented on how stunning Maura's creations were. We were over the moon with her help, kindness and work. Míle buíochas Maura! More...

I could write forever about Maura and her beautiful creations for our big day. The flowers were such an important part of our wedding and Maura made every effort to spend time with us getting to know exactly what we wanted and wow did she deliver!! I got so many compliments on my bouquet and I was blown away by the displays she made for the church & venue. They were composed of foliage and flowers from my parent's garden at home and Maura's own (Maura called out to us 2 days before the wedding to pick bits out from our garden that she could include). As my Dad is such a keen gardener it was really meaningful having him involved and including bits from home. I am so so happy we chose Maura, totally in a league of her own and cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Maura! Eimear & Eddie x More...

Maura created a fresh garden, natural, wild flower look for our wedding in November 2017 and we were simply blown away by her work. Maura’s flowers and creations make you feel like you are in a beautiful garden with the beauty of the flowers and the wonderful fragrances all working together to a magical effect. Maura is unbelievably passionate about her work and it shines through in her masterpieces. She is such a lovely lady to work with as she makes the whole process seamless and easy. We were really delighted to see the awards and recognition that Maura has received lately as we know first-hand how truly deserving of them she is. We would highly recommend Maura’s Cottage Flowers to any couples looking to add some extra magic to their special day. More...

I cannot sing enough praise for Maura and her business. On trips home from the USA, I always admired the beautiful wild flowers at Kate Browne’s Restaurant, Ardfert by Maura’s Cottage Flowers. Maura’s creativity and attention to detail are to be admired in her beautiful bespoke arrangements which show her passion for flower growing and arranging. I enjoy scrolling through her photos and am in awe of her work. Maura goes above and beyond for her customers. On a recent family birthday which I was late on, I contacted Maura from the US for her help. Within an hour, my request had been delivered to a very delighted recipient. Maura even offered to stop and buy a birthday card! She is a pleasure to do business with from near of far. Continued success to Maura’s Cottage Flowers. Well deserved. More...

We have been using Maura's flowers for about 4 months now and we love them. So natural looking and we asked for flowers that don't smell to much because smell effects taste and we got exactly what we asked for. Thanks Maura.

Maura's passion for what she does really does shine through in her beautiful flowers. When you order flowers from Maura you really are receiving more than just gorgeous flowers, the time, heart and love that goes into every single thing she does is evident and Maura herself is such a wonderful person, dealing with her is a real pleasure. Having ordered many bouquets and wreaths and attended her classes and workshops, I really cannot recommend Maura's Cottage Flowers highly enough. Her flowers are like a breath of fresh air and a ray of sunshine, just like Maura herself. Go n-èirì go geal leat:) More...

Maura’s natural gift with flowers and her ability to create the most beautiful bouquets is a joy to behold, having done some flower arranging classes in her gorgeous workshop I can honestly say there isn’t a more enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Maura’s love of all kinds of flowers is obvious in every arrangement and bouquet she does which really make’s them very very special both to give and receive. More...

Maura is always a pleasure to deal with and her work is a living Art Piece. I ordered a door swag for Christmas and it was stunning. It's so refreshing to get flowers that actually have a scent and last, Maura loves what she does and you can see this passion in each one of wonderful bouquets, centre pieces and homegrown flowers � More...

Maura did the flowers for our October Wedding and I can’t speak highly enough of either the flowers or of Maura. The arrangements were incredible and suited our venue and wedding so perfectly. Maura is phenomenally talented, an admirable business woman and most especially an absolute pleasure to deal with. She really takes the time to get to know the couple and the style of the wedding they’re hoping for. This is truly reflected in the individuality of the flowers. Fiona & Gerry. More...

I got married in Oct 2017 and asked Maura to do my flowers. She was so helpful as I didn’t know where to start. Nothing was a problem and her cool and calm demeanor made everything less stressful. I requested an unusual plant and she had no problem sourcing it for me. The flowers on the day were gorgeous and she was so professional. Can’t recommend her highly enough! More...

We got married recently in Clare and we were so lucky to have Maura to do our flowers. She sits down with you and gets to know you over tea and Biscuits in her workshop. We were delighted with our flowers. We had beautiful Bouquets that matched up perfectly to the colours in ours dresses and the men's suits. The buttonholes were something like we had never seen before , they were just amazing.We also got flowers for our mothers and they were gorgeous too, full of wonderful color :). So many people commented on the flowers throughout the day, I would recommend Maura so much, she is a very warm and welcoming person, you can see she loves what she does and puts her heart into it. I would highly recommend her :)...... if you are planning a wedding, go for Maura :).... More...

Literally cannot say enough positive words about maura personally, or her business. My new wife and I were married recently at ballyseede castle in tralee and selected mauras cottage flowers to decorate our venue. I can honestly say that maura was the perfect person for this venue, everything was tasteful, elegant and absolutely perfect. Maura also went above and beyond the call of duty, providing and attaching extra button holes, and even prevented a last minute bridal meltdown with a hand made floral head piece that she created on the spot. My new wife and I cannot recommend Mauras cottage flowers highly enough More...

Maura is exceptionally talented with a great creative flair for floral arrangements. i worked with Maura one afternoon and agreed colours, textures and she listened to my ideas as we walked around her beautiful garden. The church arrangement, bouquets, button holes and flower girl floral wands surpassed all my expectations. Maura's wildflower arrangements are truly spectacular. An extremely professional yet very personal service that I wholeheartedly recommend. More...

There are no words to express our thanks to Maura for the most beautiful wedding flowers she created for us last weekend. They were a talking point of the day! From the minute we met in her workshop we were at ease that we had found somebody who would listen to what we wanted and create something amazing. Maura's love for what she does is so evident in her work. Her attention to detail and eye for picking out the most beautiful colours is a very special talent. There was something so lovely about having locally sourced and grown flowers as a focal point in our day. We cannot thank you enough for the most incredible flowers, pics to follow!

Can not recommend Maura enough, I was one of those who had no colour scheme, no preference for anything really but Maura advised and created the whole picture for me.. so easy to deal with and my flowers were amazing for my wedding day. It's the little things that she does makes the difference, I was having a 'DAY' you know those type of days when nothing's going right.. suddenly this bouquet arrives in a jar to perk Me up.. she's amazing More...

Thank you, thank you, thank you! And even if I said it 10 more times it wouldn't be enough. I met Maura at a wedding fair and booked her on the day. I am sure it was a mix of her professionalism with her relaxed manner and amazing flowers that sold me immediately. We met a few times coming up to the wedding in her workshop (which is just a sanctuary of peace and calm and the smell of flowers and herbs is healing) to discuss all things wedding. Her attention to detail blew me away. We had a music theme to our wedding and Maura carried it through from the church flowers to the venue and on to the cake table...she sourced music note �� vases for us. Our candle flower arrangement matched the stained glass behind it!!! Only Maura would note that kind of detail. I can still smell my bouquet. The beauty of wild flowers in my bouquet was that they dried and held their shape and colour so I still have it as a dried flower arrangement. From the buttonholes to the Bridesmaids corsages and the flowergirl's wand...the detail, the scent, the uniqueness and colours were amazing. I couldn't recommended Maura highly enough, book her now.

What a wonderful lady to work with. Flowers grown in Kerry made for an extra special day. Maura is so calm and has a beautiful way with her flowers. Wonderful suggestions and beautiful arrangements and is totally attentive to your needs. The flowers are so fresh and last for ages afterwards. I would thoroughly recommend Maura for your flowers. Her best tip for the day was choose your scent. It will always remind you of your day. More...

No one produces flower creations quite like Maura. Her flowers are grown on her own land from seed, lovingly nurtured to bloom, arranged & presented for any special occasion. She has a gift like no other florist I've ever met. To see the look on someone's face when I hand them a posey or bouquet created by Maura says it all. Creative, eco friendly and unique. Her work is a talking point at any event/wedding I've witnessed. I wish her the greatest of success in the future. More...

Thank you so much, Maura for the fabulous flowers you did for our wedding. Really they were exceptional and so stunning. Everything was gorgeous; the arch, the table piece and the teapots on the tables, our bridal bouquets, the button holes, the presentation bouquet for my mother and even the flower girl wands! The candles were also beautifully decorated and we loved the style of writing and the flowers around the candle holders. We were so delighted we left this for you to organise too! You exceeded our expectaions on every aspect as the flowers were so devine and they looked fab in the photos too! You were an absolute pleasure to work with and you made everything easy especially when trying to organise a wedding from abroad! Nothing seemed a problem and thank you so much for the delivery of flowers on the morning of the wedding, even though it was out of your area. We will definitely use your services again and we would thoroughly recommend you to anyone who may need a florist in the future, particularly for a wedding! Also a big congratulations on your recent articles. What a fabulous acheivement to be recognised for all your hard work. You thoroughly deserve it. Its great to work with people who are so passionate about their livelihood. Thanks again and good luck with the business! Fiona and Dean More...
