  1. Location, Location, Location

Imagine a wedding venue being so close to the city centre yet feeling like you have escaped away to the countryside – no need to imagine any longer because Castleknock Hotel is exactly that!!

Located only 20 minutes from Dublin City Centre, Castleknock Hotel is a stone’s throw away from the Phoenix Park, making it the perfect location for your dream wedding! And with the airport within a 25 minute drive, it is convenient for guests travelling from near and far to attend your big day.

  1. We have enough room to invite the neighbours

Let’s be honest, us Irish have an unusual tradition that we feel the need to invite everyone to our wedding. Your mother’s neighbour’s sister that invited you to her birthday when you were 10 is getting an invite even though you haven’t spoken to her in 20 years. But don’t worry we have plenty of space for them all.

We have 190 fabulously spacious bedrooms on site, and we will block book 20 of these rooms for the night of your wedding at a discounted bridal rate. And with a golf course, pool, gym, spa and playground on site, your guests will be able to recover in style the morning after.

  1. Perfect for Civil Ceremonies

For the couples that want to break away from the norm of a Church ceremony, a Civil Ceremony is the way forward. We have a beautiful civil ceremony room that can cater for various wedding sizes. Civil ceremonies are perfect for couples who want their personality to shine through on their special day. As well as this, they allow you to spend more time with your guests because everything is all under the one roof.

  1. Dedicated Wedding Coordinator and Wedding Team

Planning your wedding is like a second job! You each have your 9-5pm Monday to Friday jobs but then you come home and spend your weekends planning every little detail that goes into your special day - and trust me there can be a lot of details!! So, when it comes to your venue, you really want as much help as you can get. As your dedicated Wedding Coordinator, I will be on hand throughout the whole process making sure all of your questions are answered and your big day is as stress free as possible. Our dedicated Wedding Team will be there on your big day to make sure your guests feel welcomed and looked after.

  1. Inclusive wedding packages

Whether you are looking for a summer wedding celebration or a cosy winter theme, we have a package to suit everyone. All of our wedding packages are fully inclusive, yes, I said it – FULLY inclusive. So that means a drinks reception with a drink per person and canapes, a 5 or 6 course dinner with a half bottle of wine per person and your evening buffet is all included. Your perfect package also includes stunning room décor depending on your chosen package. So get in touch because your perfect wedding package awaits!

  1. Beautifully redesigned ballroom

If all of the above didn’t convince you that Castleknock Hotel is your perfect wedding venue then our stunning newly refurbished ballroom will certainly convince you!

Our wedding ballroom is the perfect backdrop for your reception. Newly refurbished in summer 2019, the décor is elegant and classy and the colour scheme works well with all wedding themes. Our ballroom has two bars - one on each end of the room (and we know how important this is for Irish weddings). As well as this, a key feature of our ballroom is its shape. The unique shape of the ballroom means that no tables need to be moved or shifted once dinner is over, so that means you aren’t losing half of your guests before your band starts because the room has to be reshuffled!

  1. Day 2!!

Stay in the wedding bubble for as long as you can, have a day 2 or 3 (or even 4!). You want something more relaxed and informal for your day 2 so a summer BBQ in our dedicated wedding garden or finger food in our Lime Tree bar is the perfect solution for this. Invite your friends back, enjoy some music and riminess on the most special day of your lives with your nearest and dearest.

So now that I have surely convinced you that Castleknock Hotel is your perfect wedding venue, come see it for yourself by getting in touch and arranging your exclusive show around. I would love to meet you and help you turn your dream wedding into an unforgettable reality!
