Maria & John Smyth Febraury 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.
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 😊
