Tarryn & Daryl January 2024
Now that the dust has finally settled and we are already a week married today. Crazy to think! We want to thank you for everything you have done for making our special day happen the way we always imagined and always hoped for. These special days don't always seem to go as smooth for everyone but you helped us in ways nobody else could to make this the most amazing, easiest, relaxed and most memorable time of our lives. There is not a single thing we would have changed. We honestly have never met somebody who cares, loves, and takes so much pride in their work as much as you. You did not do all of this because you had to but because of the person you are, going above and beyond for whatever we needed to see us happy. It speaks volumes of the person you are so thank you. The hotel was amazing to us before you joined but somehow you upped the game since you arrived and made everything even more amazing. Leone, yourself and ALL of the team were absolutely incredible. Every moment from our experience from start to finish was perfect, from getting greeted at the entrance, dropping off bits and pieces in the lead up to the wedding, our menu tasting, the day and night of our wedding, the food, the morning after it having breakfast, having coffee throughout the day everything was perfect. All the people on site are truly amazing not only because of the job they do but because of the people they are. Our guests could not be more blown away with everything we mentioned above to. Thank you again to Leone and everyone at Castleknock Hotel for giving us the best experience of our lives that we will never, ever forget.
Rebecca & Anthony November 2023
From the get go, planning our wedding with Castleknock Hotel was both extremely easy and enjoyable. Leone in particular really got to know us and to know what was special to and for us on our special day. Anything we expressed was fulfilled. Not once in the whole process did we ever feel that pressure was being put on us to add or do something different. If anything, Leone was so informative and kept me on the straight and narrow and stop me drifting into unnecessary things to do. A lot of people kept asking were we stressed during wedding planning, and I can wholeheartedly say Castleknock Hotel and Leone made it the most stress free time. Any time I had a question or needed advice Leone was on hand and back asap. Our day went sooo smoothly and we genuinely wouldn’t change one thing! The attention to detail and how attentive Leone is , is incredible. The staff on the day were an absolute delight! They would go above and beyond for you, not just the bride and groom but all our guests commented on how lovely the staff were. The venue was incredible! Simply stunning and this was picked up beautifully in our pictures and videos. We had the time of our lives! We just wish we could do the day all over again - it truly was incredible ! We would highly recommend Castleknock Hotel to future couples. You will not be disappointed.
Aoife & Fayez November 2023
We got married in Castleknock in November. The entire planning process from start to finish was simply amazing, the wedding coordinator, Leone, is just so incredible. Leone and all of the other staff made our dream wedding come to life, nothing at all was too much to ask for, everything we wanted was done to perfection! The food was amazing, the décor was gorgeous and the staff were all so friendly and attentive! Our guests have honestly raved about how much of a stunning and wonderful day it was. And we are so grateful we chose Castleknock to host our dream day. What a day it was, filled with memories to last a lifetime!
Lisa & Eoin November 2023
We had our wedding day at the Castleknock Hotel on November 4th and we could not have asked for our day to be any better and that was all down to the staff and facilities at the hotel. From the moment we attended the wedding fair, we knew this would be our wedding venue. Leone and her team are amazing at what they do and nothing was too much trouble. All our guests raved about both the food and the staff. Everything was taken care of and we had zero stress or worry leading up to the big day or on the day itself. I would highly recommend Castleknock to anyone thinking of having their day there.
Tracy & Mark November 2023
What an amazing place - Castleknock Hotel. From the first meeting with Leone, I knew we had made the right choice. She was such a lovely, caring person to deal with.. She was always there if you needed help with anything and she and the team were amazing on the day. The venue itself for a wedding is fab; the layout, having the ceremony there, the food and all the preparation that is put into it are so attentive. All the staff at Castleknock Hotel are so friendly and you should be very proud of your team. I would highly recommend it for a wedding. There is always a lovely hustle and bustle around the place. Once again, I would like to say a big thank you for making my wedding day so special and for being so caring and understanding when I went through some very tough moments. It was really appreciated.
Joseph & Robert October 2023
We recently celebrated our wedding reception at Castleknock Hotel on the 13th of October, and we couldn’t have asked for better. Leone, our dedicated wedding coordinator, deserves special mention for going above and beyond to ensure every detail of the day was perfect. From the early planning meetings to the big day, Leone's attention to detail and commitment made the entire process seamless. The drinks reception in the Lime Tree Bar and Bar 22 Patio set the perfect tone. The canapés were not only delicious but also plentiful. The passion fruit martini received brilliant reviews from our friends and family. Moving to the wedding dinner, the experience was nothing short of fantastic. The service between tables was fast, and the staff in the function room were attentive, making sure each guest felt attended to. The overall dining experience was elevated by the quality of the food and the efficiency of the service. One of the standout features of Castleknock Hotel is undoubtedly its staff. Friendly, professional, and second to none, the team contributed significantly to the overall positive atmosphere. Many of our guests couldn't stop praising how amazing and accommodating the staff were throughout the day. The hotel rooms at Castleknock are nothing short of immaculate. Clean, comfortable, and well-appointed, they provided a luxurious retreat for us and our guests. For couples considering Castleknock Hotel for their wedding reception, we wholeheartedly recommend it. The flawless coordination, excellent food, attentive service, and the warm, friendly staff make Castleknock Hotel the perfect venue for creating lasting memories on your special day. Our heartfelt thanks to Leone and the entire Castleknock team for their part in making our wedding day truly wonderful.
Laura & Luke October 2023
When searching for a wedding venue, we visited Castleknock Hotel first and, quite simply, they set a standard nobody else matched. Leone and the staff were so warm and friendly and the approach was clear and simple from the outset. Meetings were very relaxed, but Leone's attention to detail was never off and little suggestions here and there really helped to add to so much to our day. The Castleknock staff were always available and always helpful with a smile - nothing was ever too much. The day itself was perfect and went without a hitch; the drinks reception on arrival was lovely and relaxing, the reception room itself was beautiful and the service and attention for all of our guests throughout (not just the top table!) was fantastic. We have had so many compliments about the hotel as a venue and are so happy with our choice. Quite honestly, we couldn't have wished for more. Perfect.
Oyinkan & Tiwa September 2023
CastleKnock Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding. The Hotel itself is very gorgeous, tastefully designed with a gorgeous atmosphere, the beautiful bridal suite, the lovely wedding decoration and the overall pleasant behavior from all staff. Leone, the wedding coordinator, is a godsend. With her lovely energy and infectious enthusiasm, it was easy to envision our big day with her. She was attentive and flexible, always willing to accommodate requests we had to make our day beautiful. The CastleKnock staff were also amazing at every step. From the introductory meetings to our food tasting and the wedding itself. We highly recommend CastleKnock Hotel as the perfect wedding venue.
Lorna & Colin September 2023
We had the most amazing day for our wedding at Castleknock Hotel. Everything from start to finish was brilliant. We genuinely don’t have one complaint or fault. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and their attention to detail was phenomenal. The wedding coordinator, Leone, was an absolute dream. Leone was brilliant every step of the way, from planning and guiding us to ensuring the final details were as we asked. Nothing was an issue or an ordeal; she was brilliant. The food was fab also. We would highly recommend Castleknock Hotel as a wedding venue.
Emma & Sam September 2023
We recently got married and held our wedding reception in Castleknock Hotel which was was nothing short of exceptional. From the initial stages of planning with Leone to the time we left after the wedding the service we received was impeccable. Leone and Ana were great to deal with in the planning meetings and along the way with any queries that arose. Leone had every detail covered and we felt like we knew her for years! Even allowing us to have Alpacas at the reception which we believe was a first for Castleknock! On the day everything went like clockwork, every member of staff we met with were so friendly and helpful, the room looked fantastic, the atmosphere was unreal and the food was amazing and enjoyed by everyone. There is nothing we could fault. We would have to give the hotel 5 stars for such a brilliant experience we had in Castleknock Hotel - thanks to everyone involved especially Leone, Ana, Guy, Andrew, Gavin, Ileana and Rachel to name but a few. Absolute magic - thanks so much.
Donna Roe & Gareth September 2023
We got married in the Castleknock hotel on 2/9/23. We stayed for the weekend and had an absolutely amazing time. Leone and all the staff were amazing, very helpful and accommodating. They really looked after us throughout the whole lead-up to our wedding day and on the day itself, they made us feel very special. The wedding room was decorated beautifully and the food was gorgeous. Our reception was out in the garden, where we got loads of beautiful photographs. I would recommend the Castleknock Hotel as a perfect wedding venue.
Sinéad & Anthony August 2023
We had an absolutely incredible wedding day at Castleknock. From start to finish the wedding co-ordinator Leone Clarke did an unbelievable job - made things really simple for us, had great recommendations for us (including recommending what we shouldn't spend extra money on. The main reasons we originally booked were location (near the airport for half the guests travelling from abroad), accommodation (rate and volume), and aesthetics. But we were absolutely blown away by the incredible food, service, and value. Thanks to all at Castleknock who made our day so special. Do not hesitate to book your wedding here.
Siobhán & Dominic August 2023
Leone was an amazing wedding planner. Nothing was too difficult to accomplish. The staff at the hotel were great and very professional. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.
Lynn & Warren July 2023
When it comes to wedding venues, the Castleknock Hotel is second to none. From the very first time you walk through the doors of the hotel, you get such a warm welcome from everyone. The staff are just exceptional. When we met Leone, we knew immediately that we were in safe hands. She is so calming and nothing was ever a hassle to her throughout the entire journey and on the day. The venue on the day and the reception room were absolutely stunning and the food was incredible. Our guests are still talking about how great the day was and we genuinely had the wedding of our dreams.
Eithne & James July 2023
The Castleknock Hotel team were brilliant. A special mention must go to Leone Clarke (Castleknock Wedding Coordinator), who did a fantastic job ensuring the weekend was stress free and everything ran smoothly.
Susanna & Ruairí July 2023
We decided to get married in Castleknock a year before the big day. From the beginning, Castleknock were incredibly helpful and attentive and eased us into all the planning and preparations that were necessary. In a high interest rate environment, Castleknock was clear from the start of what prices would be like by the time the day came, and there were no surprises regarding costs. Leone, our wedding co-ordinator, was exceptional. We had multiple meetings with her, she was very prompt with email responses and made sure there was no ambiguity regarding our vision for the day. Castleknock were very flexible and happy to meet our bespoke requests and made sure we got full value from the chosen package. On the day, wait staff were incredibly friendly and prompt. We got many comments from guests regarding their efficiency. The food provided was delicious and each course was perfectly spread out. On the day, the wedding team made sure we enjoyed our day and delegated any queries and questions to our wedding party, so as to ensure we could enjoy the celebrations. This really made the day for us. We stayed at the hotel for two nights and accomodation was excellent. They treated us like VIPs the whole way through.
Ashling & Niall June 2023
We had our wedding in Castleknock Hotel in June 2023 and can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. From the day we met Leone we knew we were in safe hands. We had seen the Phoenix Suite multiple times on our visits to Castleknock Hotel but we were blown away when we viewed it privately before our guests on our wedding day. We cannot thank Leone and all the staff enough for everything. We look forward to visiting the hotel again soon.
Grainne & Frank May 2023
We had our wedding reception at Castleknock Hotel on 26 May 2023, from start to finish the whole experience was flawless and superb, Leone Clarke, our wedding Coordinator was beyond exceptional, Nothing was an issue and everyone was so friendly and made the whole celebration so beautiful, thank you to all involved !!!
Sinéad & Glen April 2023
Everything from start to finish, We could not fault anything. The staff are amazing so friendly and noting is a big ask. The hotel itself is just fab the ballroom, ceremony room , drinks reception all was just perfect. It was all just easy going and straight forward no hassles at all, Leone is just amazing she is so good at her job I would honestly recommend the hotel and Leone to anyone thinking of having their wedding there. We can't wait to go back again for a stay.
Fiona & Tom April 2023
Thanks to you and all the staff at Castleknock Hotel for making our 1st Wedding Anniversary so special on Sunday. We had a beautiful meal in Earth & Wine, in the new covered area which was fabulous, and we treated ourselves to a night in the hotel. A special mention to Andrew, who could not do enough for us, a smile and warm welcome the minute he saw us arriving. Please pass on our thanks and the exceptional customer service we received from Andrew, and the girls in Earth & Wine on Sunday night. They are all a credit to the hotel and we have no hesitation recommending Castleknock Hotel to our friends and family. If you could also pass on how exceptional the staff were to your General Manager. They really made the experience even more special.
Barbara & Jade Kelly March 2023
We held our wedding at the Castleknock Hotel in March of this year, 2023. From the day we booked our wedding, we were treated extremely well. The communication with Leone was brilliant and I have been recommending Leone ever since. The day of the wedding couldn't have gone any better. Little things we forgot, Leone was on the ball in getting it sorted ASAP. The ceremony room was magical, the reception drinks were amazing and the dinner room was just a suburb. You really don't have to do much with rooms, as their decor is so beautiful. All staff of the day, waiting staff, bar staff and all managers did a super job and our guests still talk about the staff at The Castleknock Hotel. What a day! Thank you all.
Helen & Dan March 2023
We had to find a new venue for our wedding at short notice and we feel very lucky that the Castleknock Hotel was available. Leone, our wedding coordinator, is a credit to the hotel and couldn't have been more helpful and approachable in the short weeks between booking and the day of the wedding. A very professional experience and nothing was too much for the staff to help accommodate everything that we wanted and more. All of our guests commented on how great the venue is and how friendly all of the staff throughout the day were. Couldn't recommend this venue more to other couples, especially that their packages are all inclusive which took the stress out of the planning.
Denise & Jason March 2023
To all the newly engaged couples who are starting their wedding planning journey, if you are looking for a venue that is professional, welcoming, friendly, pays attention to detail, and provides excellent customer service, Castleknock Hotel is the one. Upon our first viewing, we were made to feel welcome; the staff were professional, reassuring, and made us feel calm and relaxed. We loved it. Leone Clarke, our wedding planner, and the team went above and beyond to cater for all our guests; from the menu testing right through to when our special day arrived, nothing was too much hassle. All our guests enjoyed their meal; the food was excellent, and the soup is a big favourite to this day. I would highly recommend Castleknock Hotel. Thanks again to Leone for making our dream a reality.
Louise & Stephen March 2023
Stephen and I got married in the Castleknock hotel March 30th and wow is all I can say. It was a dream come true. I never felt stressed in the lead up to the day because Leone had everything under control and was always on the end of the phone for a call or email. She is an absolute credit to the Castleknock hotel and they’re very lucky to have her!! Everyone commented on how well the day went and was on schedule because of how well she had everything under control. Nothing was a problem and everything we wanted was done to the highest standard. The food, hospitality and accommodation was second to none. Everyone was treated so well and we could’ve have asked for better. I wish I could go back and do it all again. If you’re thinking of booking this venue please do. You won’t be disappointed.
Lisa & Keith January 2023
Firstly, thank you so much for all the hard work and dedication you showed us and our family. From our first meeting to check out on Sunday, every detail was looked after! We had a fantastic day, it went too fast and it's only now that we are reflecting with friends and family that we are remembering details of the day! Leone, you made me feel so at ease that morning, outside the ceremony room, the reception was perfect and Rachel & Miro took care of the everyone to a tee.. I don't even know where to start with explaining how wonderful our experience was at the hotel. Our parents, family and all our guests raved about the staff. They went above and beyond to ensure everyone was looked after. The children got everything they needed and more. Rachel was particularly kind and patient with Ruby! As you know I had guests with disabilities attend, those ladies had an absolute ball, they could not say enough for Rachel and Miro. The dietary requirements, accessibility requirements, and even how the staff spoke to them was second none.
Rachael & Chris November 2022
We booked our wedding before Covid was even a thing, so we were lucky that we never had to reschedule! We did however book so far in advance that we saw two wedding coordinator changes in the hotel. Who knew they were saving the best til last. Leone; the wedding coordinator, as far as people skills, couple understanding, overall confidence in recommending what would fit the bill in terms of what we wanted; she alone was an unknown(before we knew we needed her) essential part of the team. The staff overall were incredible; so friendly to us in the build up and guests echo that feedback from the days leading up to, during and after. The hotel was a no contest decision. Stunning entrance, spacious lobby, the most perfect wedding reception area for the numbers and atmosphere we wanted, and the ceremony room with the help of the hotel, wow-celebrations and some personal touches was perfect; and not forgetting the beautiful garden were we had the most fun getting our photos taken. To summarise; in our eyes, Castleknock Hotel is a five star venue that offers top class, sophisticated and family friendly services.
Lisa & Eoin November 2022
We had our wedding in the Castleknock hotel on the 4/11/22 and I want to share the amazing experience we had with them. From our first meeting with the team at a wedding showcase evening way back in 2019 to the last moment leaving after the wedding the staff have been absolutely incredible. They made everything so easy and were amazing to deal with. The wedding coordinator, Leone, is the nicest, most chilled out person you will ever meet and is amazing in her job, she made us feel so at ease and calm throughout the lead up to the day and especially on the day itself, nothing was too much trouble and she was always there when we needed her. Another amazing person is Andy, the restaurant/bar manager. He is good at what he does, and went out of his way, on more then one occasion, to make us feel very special, both before the wedding and on the day. He looked after all our family and guests so well and I couldn’t speak highly enough of him. On the big day itself, there is not one thing I would change about the hotel, food, experience.. everything was amazing. Our friends and family loved the hotel and the staff as much as us and raved about the staff and food the next day. Every member of staff has the same great friendly happy welcome for you and they make the hotel experience. I would 100% recommend the hotel to anyone looking for somewhere to have their wedding. You will not be disappointed and they deserve every award they have been given.
Sinéad & Gary October 2022
We had the absolute best time at our wedding in Castleknock Hotel. The entire wedding and events team was a pleasure to work with. People still talk about how nice the food was! We loved all the different spaces throughout the hotel for different parts of the day. Nothing we asked for was ever an issue and if we could do it all again!
Ciara & Daniel October 2022
As soon as we walked through the doors of the Castleknock Hotel we knew we would choose it as our wedding venue. The staff were so welcoming, the hotel was so gorgeous and so stylish, the selection of drinks is great and the food is delicious and consistently so! We were so well looked after by wedding coordinator Leone, she made us feel like everything would be amazing, which it was on the day. The reservations team couldn't do enough to help too. Our wedding guests were blown away by the quality of the hotel and many remarked how they will come back for a break away or a nice meal. It feels like it's D15 best kept secret! We can't wait to visit again and relive some of the memories of our wedding.
Nicole & Keith September 2022
We had the most amazing experience from start to finish with Castleknock from the second we went for a viewing we knew it was the perfect fit for our special day Leone and her team of experts checked in with us throughout our planning which made the planning so stress free we have a little girl that was also made feel like a princess she wanted for nothing on the day thank you to all the team at Castleknock. Tips I would give a following bride and groom... Take time for both of you maybe just before the meal remembering it is your day your guests are well looked after. Stay the night before and get ready in the hotel Leone and her team checked in on both of us numerous times throughout our morning again making everything stress free. Take all the advice from the team at Castleknock and use their experties as they know the time frame of each part of your day we taught we needed to fill more parts of our day with entertainment but Leone assured me the day goes so quickly and I didn't need to bring anything forward or add any extra entertainment. We have stayed so many times since (married Sept 2022) as our experience in this hotel is always first class
Thank you to everyone who made our day so special
Mr and Mrs Bredin ❤️
Fiona & James September 2022
From start to finish, the team in Castleknock were amazing! Every little detail is thought of in the planning and Wedding Coordinator was always on hand either by phone or email for any queries. The wider team of staff from reservations, to banquet staff right down to the staff you meet at the door are always so friendly, helpful and professional. All our guests raved about the venue, the food and how comfortable the accommodation is. The day was absolutely flawless and there was always someone nearby checking in with the Bride & Groom that we had what we needed and were kept up to speed on each part of the day! We didn't want to stary far from the partying to take our photos so the beautiful gardens outside worked perfectly for us and our photographer and meant we could still see the guests enjoying themselves nearby. It was a truly magical day in Castleknock, everything we could have imagined and more.
Edel & Paul September 2022
Thank you, Leone, and all the staff at Castleknock for helping us with our big day. It is a day we will never forget. Your staff, from yourself and the wedding staff down to the doorman, couldn’t have helped us enough. We would recommend you 1000 times over.
Daniell & Paul September 2022
Leone and the team at Castleknock Hotel did not disappoint. We had the most amazing day; everything was perfect. We could not say a bad word about anything. From the minute I woke up, Leone was there to calm my nerves. The food was 10 out of 10; all the quests raved about the food and the small details.
We can't thank you enough.
From Danielle and Paul
Simran & Jonathan September 2022
As a couple planning our wedding abroad, there aren't enough kind words to say about the exceptional service we received from Castleknock Hotel. They created our dream wedding day well above all expectations we had. For 18 months we worked closely with our wedding planner, reservations team, facilities team and restaurant staff to make every touch our own. Our wedding planner was so understanding and present throughout everything. She worked with our vendors directly to help relieve stress on the day for us. Every call, question and thought was given every inch of her attention and effort. If we wanted it, she made it happen! Our wedding menu was tailored exactly how we wanted and every night before and after the wedding we were taken care of in each of the restaurants. We had many guests travelling in for the wedding and the compliments on the hotel were endless! The reservations team worked closely with each of our guests to make their stay comfortable and stress-free. The spa had our bridal party looking and feeling amazing! Not only did the hotel staff make us feel like royalty, they felt like family by the end of the week. From the start of this journey 18 months ago to the morning of check out, we couldn't imagine our wedding without Castleknock Hotel.
Paul & Emilia August 2022
We had our wedding at the hotel and wanted to say a special thank you and can only say what a fantastic venue, superb staff and fabulous food! To each member of staff, from the guys on the door right throughout the hotel a massive thank you! Five stars!!!
Ian & Keiva July 2022
Just wanted to say we are so happy with the service of the hotel from the bar to the kitchen it was unbelievable, we couldn't of ask for any better. Our wedding was so special and you were the main part of that from Start to finish you were talking to us and reassuring us as we were very nervous. Louise, we can't thank you enough the ceremony was amazing and the room was too. We can't complain about anything. We would like to thank you all, the staff at the Castleknock Hotel.
Alex & Gareth June 2022
Castleknock hotel was beyond amazing and helpful. The venue itself is stunning, so clean and modern, they really take pride in their hotel. Our guests could not get over how beautiful it was, each room was stunning. Our original date was May 2021 but due to COVID we postponed. They were so helpful and understanding in organizing a new date and moving things around for us. Since booking Castleknock in Nov 2019, their were a few turnovers in wedding coordinators, but they were all so helpful and had been handed over brilliantly so they were up to date with our wedding. Louise was our coordinator and she was nothing short of amazing. We were planning from England so we couldn't get over to see or speak in person but that didn't matter as she was so good with emailing with us! She took all our needs on board, my husband and I are vegan and vegetarian so it was important we had no meat on our menu. She was great in speaking to the chef about our needs and when we had questions on our menu tasting about possible changes she really went above and beyond. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were made to feel so special. All of the staff were incredible, nothing was too much of an ask the whole weekend. The food was absolutely gorgeous, with not having meat on the menu, we wanted to make sure the food on our menu was still as full and flavorsome and that our guests would still love the food and they did! They were raving about it! When I asked to make sure there was vegan wine and prosecco for me and other vegan guests to have they were so on top of it! It was a beautiful weekend from start to finish. The value of their wedding packages are great, they include so many aspects which cater to your needs and budget! Thank you making our wedding vision come to life, we cant thank you enough! We cant wait to be back with you on our first anniversary!
Fiona & Tom April 2022
We cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us to make our special day even more special.. you even got the sun out for us! You were so kind and organised, it made us feel very comfortable. From start to finish the whole weekend went off without a hitch. We and our families enjoyed every minute of the weekend. The hotel staff could not do enough, especially Martin and his wife, Andrew, Mira, and Kevin. So professional and their attention to detail was first class. We certainly highly recommend Castleknock Hotel as a high-class venue and cannot wait to be back.
Richie & Ben April 2022
We have heard nothing but praise from every guest.... raving about all aspects of the Wedding Day. The detail... food.. service .. staff... the venue.. the rooms. Everything. Richie and I are so glad we picked the Castleknock Hotel. Your assistance was invaluable... the day went without a hitch... in a word... it was Magical. You have helped us to create memories for life...
Stephanie & Philip March 2022
From the moment I walked into the hotel I knew instantly that I would love to have my wedding here. For such a large and beautiful hotel you get a sense of warmth and welcome, its like a 'home for home' feeling. I really think this is down to the fact that the staff are so friendly and professional, every single staff member went above and beyond for us, nothing was to big or small of an ask. Louise our wedding coordinator was just brilliant so friendly, professional from the first time I met Louise for all the organising, it was like I had known her for years! She makes you feel at ease and nothing was to big or small to ask- made for her job! We had the best wedding day and stay at Castleknock Hotel, our guests had an absolute ball!
Rosa & Jayson January 2022
Our wedding coordinator is very accommodating, helpful with the ideas and patient all throughout with the planning. She represented the hotel in a very extraordinary way to the point that we were excited each day towards our best day ever because she made us feel that everything will be looked after which did happen. We had the best view from the bridal suite and our 3 nights stay were amazing.
Chelle & Robbie October 2021
Robbie and myself would like to say a big thank you to yourself, Kevin and all the staff at the hotel. Our wedding was amazing and was even better than what we had expected. Perfection would be the best word to describe the day. It was so easy to organise as you were a brilliant help. From start to finish it all went smooth and had no issues. The food was perfect could not fault anything. We have had so many of our guests coming to us to say how lovely the hotel, staff and food was. There are two staff members who should also get some praise for their excellent service on the night. Emma and Sean they went above and beyond to make sure our night was perfect. So glad we picked the Castleknock Hotel for our wedding.
Meliha & Aaron October 2021
Castleknock Hotel was the first, and only hotel we visited. After a lot of research, we booked our visit and we were instantly blown away. The packages they have available, the quality of the service, staff, food, atmosphere, recommended vendors, you name it - everything was absolute perfection. Louise in particular was an absolute pleasure to work with, nothing was ever an issue and you could always have a laugh with her. The process was so easy, so relaxed, that we felt no issues on the run up to the big day or even on the day itself. Louise and her team made sure everything was done to perfection. We will be forever grateful to the Castleknock Hotel and their incredible staff for making our Wedding Day, the most positive experience and for making it the best day of our life. We are very lucky to have them so close to home and look forward to visiting in the very near future.
Niamh & Myles October 2021
We attended a wedding at Castleknock Hotel a few years ago and were blown away by the hotel so decided it was where we wanted to have our special day. From the first meeting with Louise nothing was too much trouble and she helped plan our day with ease. Planning a wedding during Covid-19 was uncertain at times but she kept in touch regularly with news and updates and we were finally able to have our day the way we wanted. The staff in Castleknock Hotel are amazing. The food also needs a special mention, from our wedding day meal to the breakfast the next morning everything was perfect. We had the best day of our lives I wish we could do it all over again. We highly recommend Castleknock Hotel as a wedding venue our day was amazing from start to finish.
Sarah & Nader September 2021
Louise we just wanted to say thank you so much for everything. You went above and beyond for us. The staff, the food, the service, the wedding room were all simply out of this world. We couldn't have asked for better. You have an extremely difficult job and you do it with such grace & understanding. You were a pleasure to deal with. Please thank everyone in the hotel that dealt with us on our wedding day & the day after. Every single one of our guests were beyond impressed and haven't stopped talking about it. You all really are top class!!
Lorna & Dave September 2021
We had the most amazing day ever! We cannot thank Louise, our Wedding Coordinator enough. Louise was so brilliant and the room was perfect. You made us feel so at ease the whole way up to the day. The staff were so attentive and took such good care of us. Everything just ran smoothly on the day and we didn’t have to worry about anything. All of the guests raved about the food and the service. The afternoon tea on the second day was fabulous. Every single member of staff was so friendly and welcoming. Thank you so so much for everything. Our girls are already asking when we can stay again!
Paul & Petra August 2021
From the moment we arrived at our wedding reception to the moment we checked out, we just had the best time ever. Everything was great. The food, the staff, the function room, the wedding garden, just everything… so I must commend you all for giving my wife and I the best send off ever! Everyone remarked on how beautiful the hotel is and also the staff, who I must say are obviously trained to a very high level. On the point of staff, it would be wrong of me to not mention a few people in the hotel who we encountered over the course of our stay…
- Kevin ( banquet manager) - lovely guy, very professional and made everything flow throughout.
- Rachel - this lady walked us into the room as husband/ wife and looked after all the top table with considerable ease. Rachel was so polite and nothing was ever too much trouble. In fact only this morning, my mother told me a quick story that Rachel insisted on getting her a fresh pot of tea as the cup she had looked a little dull. Sometimes it’s just the little things that make the difference.
- I don’t know the girls name but she appeared to be over the lobby area. Young girl, dark brown hair with glasses and a ponytail. On our day 2, she offered to bring us out some blankets and tried to get us an area in the lobby to enable us to sit together. Very personable staff member.
- Ollie- This chap looked after us immensely in the restaurant the following day after the wedding. Impeccable service for which we are very grateful.
- To the staff who rang us on the morning after our wedding to see if we wanted breakfast sent to the room - a lovely gesture as I’m sure you can imagine, both Petra and I were a bit worse for wear that morning so it was a lovely touch! All the best and thanks for everything folks. Quite simply, you have given us new memories which we will never forget as long as we both shall live.
Aimee & David August 2021
I wanted to thank you for all of your hard work on our wedding. You have always been there at the other end of the phone or email anytime I needed to ask anything, small or big, trivial or important. I was always responded to in a quick and professional manner. You were friendly and helpful each time we interacted.
We had a fabulous time. When I had thought about our wedding I hadn't envisioned it as a 'normal wedding,' due to Covid. But the day went off as close to a normal wedding as possible. The hotel was Covid compliant and safe for all of our guests. The staff couldn't have done enough for the guests. Guests were happier with table bar service, they didn't even need to leave their seats for a drink. A special mention to Sean who served the top table. He ensured the top table were treated like royalty. Thank you again for making our day so special and memorable.
Hazel & Richie August 2021
The food was amazing, the service was excellent and the room was stunning. The staff who looked after us on the day were so professional and nothing was a problem. Our guests were raving about the food and there were lots of compliments about the general décor including the centrepieces, the cutlery, the chairs and the lighting. All that came together to help the day go off without a hitch (pun very much intended ! ). Thank you to you and the team. We are so happy we had our wedding reception in Castleknock Hotel and would recommend to anyone.
Jacqueline & Sean July 2021
We had the most amazing experience. I would do my wedding again tomorrow If i could it went that well. Niamh is a credit to the hotel she is so responsive, supportive and a dream to deal with. She made wedding planning feel like a hobby. My stress levels were zero. She everything exactly how we asked, she listened and never disappointed. We cannot fault the Castleknock Hotel for our wedding. The staff were extremely professional and accommodating they couldn't have done enough for us they were beyond helpful. All facilities were excellent, the Ballroom was amazingly decorated everything was perfect. The food was beautiful every single guest came up to compliment it. We are beyond happy with our experience amazing wedding venue.
Amy & Niall July 2021
Everything was so efficient on our wedding day our server Sean was absolutely outstanding, his manners, his work ethic...never left us wanting for anything. Amazing customer service! Staff, decor everything about Castleknock Hotel was a dream for me even my bridal suite I'm so happy I wouldn't have changed my day for a second. Thank you to Niamh also who was more than accommodating to Niall and I. Couldn't be more grateful for the day I had at Castleknock Hotel I'll be back again for the one year anniversary for sure.
Suzanne & Paul July 2021
Castleknock Hotel was the perfect location for our wedding. Both of the ladies (Lorraine and Niamh) that dealt with our wedding the most handled it all to perfection, answering all queries we had and ensuring that things were perfect for us on the day. Niamh gave us both a lovely welcome on the day and returned to make sure everything was to our satisfaction later that day. The food was amazing on the day, best I've had up there to date. Room was beautiful but still love the main ballroom that the hotel usually uses for weddings, but for the size of our wedding due to restrictions, the smaller room was fine. Service as always in the hotel was excellent.
Jacqueline & Glen June 2021
This was our 3rd date and the Castleknock Hotel was amazing from the cancellation of our first wedding to the rebooting of our final date, very responsive and extremely helpful. The day itself went without a hitch, we had 25 people and we loved every minute. The ceremony room was decorated beautifully, the ballroom was fabulous, the food was amazing and the staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Niamh and the rest of the staff were amazing from start to finish. My new husband myself and all our guests had a fabulous day in the Castleknock hotel.
Lisa & Ash September 2020
Our day was absolutely perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves & the day went exactly how we could have wished for. The staff looking after us were absolutely amazing & couldn’t of done more on the day for us. There was always someone present for drink orders & the food quality was fantastic, was so delicious! The staff on the day couldn’t have done more for us from start to finish. Thanks so much for a thoroughly enjoyable day/night.
Elizabeth & Vincent September 2020
To Niamh, Thank you so much for making our day so beautiful and special, you did a great job! Many Thanks, Elizabeth & Vincent.
Bríd and Brian July 2020
We just wanted to say a huge thank you all of the team at Castleknock Hotel for the great support and service we received in arranging our wedding reception on 31 July. We had a wonderful day and everything went so smoothly thanks to the attentive staff and the gorgeous food. These times are a lot more difficult arranging something like this and we couldn't be more appreciative to you all. We will definitely be recommending you to all of our family and friends for future receptions or events.
Maria & John Smyth February 2020
We had the most amazing day of our lives thanks to The Castleknock Hotel on Sat 15th Feb 2020. Our wedding coordinator, Lorraine Kavanagh, went above and beyond her role to meet our high expectations. Lorraine and her team pulled out all of the stops to ensure both the Ceremony & Banqueting rooms were decorated to the highest standard, it took my breath away, AMAZING, I can’t thank them enough. We had a wedding party of 180, everyone raved about the food, service, professionalism and friendliness of all of the staff on the day which was lovely to hear, so thank you again. I would highly recommend this Hotel for a wedding, you will not regret it!!!
Karen & Garret February 2020
Had the perfect weekend, what a fantastic hotel and I've never met nicer staff. I was very sad checking out yesterday! We were looked after so well for the entire weekend. Thank you so much for everything. We had so many people telling us how fabulous the hotel was. Keep doing what you're doing!
Denise & Andrew January 2020
Castleknock Hotel made our wedding on 4th January 2020 spectacular. Their attention to detail was outstanding and they went above and beyond to make our day extremely special. Andrew Sherlock (Bar & Restaurant Manager) and Kevin Ryan (Conference & Banqueting Manager) could not do enough for not only myself and my husband but for all of our guests. Our guest raved about the hotel, so much so that some of our guests have booked events for their own family gatherings and celebrations this year.
Emma & Ger January 2020
We received nothing but compliments from our guests about the hotel. We were very impressed with all of the staff at the hotel especially Kevin and Miro - they were great at keeping us informed on our wedding day, so polite and seemed very relaxed. We enjoyed the whole weekend - Friday night drinks in the bar, our wedding day of course and the Sunday buffet and reserved area gave our families the opportunity to get together and chill out. We had the best weekend/day ever and it couldn't have been more perfect for us.
Chris & Marie December 2019
Absolutely first class service from the moment we booked until we left after our wedding. Julie and her team were faultless. We had a large wedding of 200 and all the steaks were cooked perfectly. Food and service were amazing as any concerns we had were dealt with without any issue. I would recommend it to anyone.
Siobhan & Ciaran December 2019
We had our wedding day on 27th Dec 2019, and it was truly an amazing day. Castleknock went to all lengths to ensure we had the most special day ever. The hotel was decorated for Christmas and there really was a wonderful atmosphere. All the staff were so welcoming and made our whole experience one we will never forget. Thanks to everyone for making our wedding day so very special.
Ben & Stephen December 2019
Myself and my partner just want to take this opportunity to thank Julie and her team at Castleknock Hotel. Our wedding was exactly how we had planned but so much more at the same time, that down to Julie. The planning of the day went smoothly and Julie always had an answer or solution for every question. The day itself was amazing and ran so smoothly. The food and service were incredible, all the staff was amazing and fun and polite, all of our guests have said it was the best wedding they have been to. My partner I cannot thank Julie and her team enough! An amazing day spent with amazing people in an amazing venue, thank you again!
Darina & Gary September 2019
I cannot recommend the Castleknock Hotel enough as a wedding venue. We got married in September this year and Julie our wedding coordinator went out of her way from day 1 to make sure everything was perfect and as we wanted on the day. Contact was so good throughout the process and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. I was blown away by how nice the room was on the day and all our guests commented on how great the food was. The service from the staff on the day was incredible meaning everything ran so smoothly. They really do make sure you can just relax and enjoy your big day. I cannot recommend this hotel enough.
Shane & Aimee August 2019
I had my wedding here. The staff are an absolute pleasure in all areas. We were looked after to the highest of standards. Food in the restaurant and also for the wedding reception was top class. Rooms are looked after well and beds are comfortable. Highly recommend staying here.
Edel & Karl 21st August 2019
We had an amazing wedding in Castleknock Hotel in July 2019, everything was perfect from the food to the service to the layout of the room. The staff were amazing on the day, nothing was too much hassle and they were very accommodating and so helpful o the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself. Julie was our wedding co-ordinator and what can I say, she was just amazing, she was so helpful and fab to work with, she made everything feel at ease and made sure our day was exactly as we wanted it to be. The food was gorgeous and everyone was raving about the quality of the food. We had a second day BBQ and the duty manager on the day, Silvano, was just amazing, he went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed and was always there when we needed him. I just want to thank Castleknock and Julie for everything, myself and my husband had the best day possible.
Donna & Stephen 15th August 2019
We got married in Castleknock Hotel on the 15th of August. It was the best day of my life, Castleknock couldn't have done any more for us from the time I booked my wedding until the day I got married. Audrey and Julie became like family to me along the way, there was nothing too small or too big that they couldn't do for my special day, it becomes their special day. I can't thank them enough, they made my dreams come true and the staff are 10/10. All my guests are still ringing me and talking about it. Thanks so much to Audrey and Julie and every one of the staff at Castleknock for making my special day magical, the hotel is amazing and the grounds are breathtaking.
Kellie & Fiachra 18th July 2019
From our first visit to Castleknock Hotel in February 2018, we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our wedding reception. Communication was always an open line and every question we had was answered quickly. Julie could not have done enough for us in the lead up to our wedding. Every appointment with her was a pleasure, we laughed and joked and enjoyed the process completely. The ballroom décor was even better than we hoped, the room looked so beautiful. The food was incredible, people are still talking about it! The standard of service in the room was impeccable, thank you to Darragh and the team.
Coughlan & Dowling 18th April 2019
From the day we went to the wedding open day we knew we wanted to get married in Castleknock. Everything was so laid back which suited us perfectly. No ask was too big and every request was accommodated too. The day itself couldn’t have gone any smoother and all guests raved about how good the food was. Julie was a delight to work with and couldn’t do enough for us.
Digney & Mcloughlin 12th April 2019
The staff were absolutely incredible. Audrey, Kevin and Rachel in particular. They all just really made our day. Our entire experience from start to finish really made us feel special. I really can't fault anything. Thank you Castleknock Hotel.
Kristine & Campbell 29th March 2019
We can not fault the staff at the Castleknock Hotel in any way. The day ran absolutely perfect and every hiccup along the way was met with a calm professional approach! In particular Audrey the Events Coordinator was an absolute dream and godsend to have! Anyone considering here my advice is do it! We had the day of our dreams!
O'Flynn & Henchey 3rd January 2019
The engagement of the staff in the planning and running of our wedding was excellent. The access to viewing the Hotel's facilities and the tastings were also excellent. These combined experiences gave us a very strong sense of trust and confidence in the Hotel's capacity and the professionalism of the team. A special word of thanks to Anna who took us on when Lorraine finished her tenure as Wedding Co-ordinator. Anna hit the ground running and was 100% professional in her communications, engagement, detail and follow through with us. Our guests were highly complimentary about the standard of the wedding meal and the layout of both the ceremony room and the function room and the level of service they received. We were a small wedding but this in no way diminished the level of service we received in every way on the day.
Griffin & Hamill 11th October 2018
The team at Castleknock Hotel went above and beyond what we ever expected. We have had so many people comment on how well they were treated and how efficient the staff were.
Byrne & Kelly 29th September 2018
We absolutely loved our wedding experience with Castleknock Hotel. We truly believe this was down to Lorraine, as she listened to our needs from the very start. Nothing was too much for her. She made us feel at complete ease throughout the whole process of planning our wedding. I had lost my dad in May and I can honestly say that knowing Lorraine was looking after us just made me not have to worry about the wedding as I completely trusted her and the hotel. She really is a credit to your hotel and we will be without a doubt recommending it to all our friends. The service on the day itself was amazing. Once again nothing was too much for Kevin. He kept things moving at a nice pace and it wasn't rushed.
Pham & Henley September 2018
A wedding is a big event in all our lives, and obviously we all want it to be perfect. Castleknock Hotel gave my husband and me, a wonderful fairy tale wedding that I was hoping for. Lorraine was absolutely amazing, she took off so much pressure and weight off my shoulder that I found planning for my wedding to be fun and exciting. The winter theme lived up to its name. I can say with 100% that Lorraine and Castleknock Hotel can give you what you're looking for on your big day. Big thank you to Lorraine for everything and that I doubt anywhere else can do and make a wedding as beautiful as she can.
Hanway & Kelly 6th July 2018
We booked our wedding with Lorraine and she was simply amazing to work with, so helpful and friendly, all the staff were just great and would highly recommend anyone planning a wedding to come and check the hotel out!!!
Grey & Knight 24th March 2018
Nothing was ever too trivial and you were always there to help with anything I needed. Our day went so smoothly, absolutely no problems or hiccups and I can't thank the Team enough. All our guests absolutely raved at the food Quote: "Best wedding food I have ever had". Thank you Castleknock Hotel for a wonderful weekend. I wish we could do it all again.
Veron & Kelleher 10th March 2018
Everything was amazing from start to finish. Myself and my wife had a fantastic day and the guests loved everything. Lorraine was fantastic with us and great support.
Murphy & Ryan 2nd February 2018
What a fabulous destination for a wedding. The hotel, grounds, and staff were fantastic. Lorraine was brilliant leading up to the wedding and Kevin really looked after us on the day. All our guests loved the hotel and the food was fantastic. Looking forward to going back for another stay soon.
Malone & Heaney 27th January 2018
I and my husband Tony would like to thank every single member of staff in the Castleknock Hotel for making our day absolutely perfect. From start to finish the team at the hotel were amazing and everything went wonderfully on the day and without a glitch. I would like to especially mention Lorraine who was our wedding coordinator from start to finish and as a bit of a control freak myself, I can say, hand on heart, I knew I could trust her with everything from day 1! There was nothing Lorraine didn’t do for us to make sure we had an amazing day. Also on the day itself, Simon was brilliant, he was great with everyone including the kids who were doing flower girls for us and he was a good laugh too! From the ceremony room to the reception room everything was decorated perfectly and nothing was out of place at all. All of the waiters and waitresses and bar staff were brilliant, and the food itself was second to none. For everyone to be happy with their food and no complaints at all just goes to show the talent of the chefs and staff at the Castleknock Hotel. We are looking forward to our first-anniversary meal back there 😊
