Louise and the team in Castleknock were honestly amazing to deal with. From initial conversations 18 months prior, to our day 2 celebrations they could not have been better. Louise is a dream to work with, super organised and on top of even the smallest details. The food and drinks service is top class. The ballroom staff were so helpful on the day and so friendly to all our guests. Our guests have been raving about the staff, food and hotel since our day, which is exactly what you want after a wedding. We cannot wait to visit again.

The ceremony room was decorated beautifully, the ballroom was fabulous , food was gorgeous and the staff were brilliant. It went without a hitch. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough. Niamh Whelan their coordinator couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you The Castleknock hotel for our unforgettable day.

We had our amazing wedding day with Castleknock Hotel on 2nd July 2021 with our 25 guests as per COVID restrictions. While our wedding coordinator changed three times during our wedding planning period (January 2020 to July 2021), both Lorraine and Niamh handled everything to perfection throughout. We dealt with Niamh more towards the end and she honestly coukd not have done any more for us. Such a lovely professional woman. The food on the day topped every other amazing experience we have ever had with dining there. Vól au vents, vegetable soup, salmon/chicken and banoffee pie... all amazing and heard nothing but compliments from our guests and family. The room was beautiful on the day and the venue worked along with our plans for decor with Whimsical Weddings, it all looked fab when we arrived. With COVID restrictions we were not allowed live music, but the venue helped us set up our Spotify Playlists for the ceremony and drinks reception and dinner room and it was perfect for the number of guests we had. A family friend made our wedding cake and the venue allowed us to have this on site (we just had to sign a waiver). We were not allowed the selfie mirror and chocolate fountain that we'd put deposit down for which was initially disappointing but in the end I think this would have been too much for the small group of people. I can't sing the venues praises enough, so much so I still revisit for lunch on the Terrace or a coffee! Can't wait to stay overnight for our first anniversary as they have offered us an anniversary meal - we're going to make a night of it and book in for an overnight stay (although we live local!).

We were married recently in the Castleknock Hotel. Ceremony and Reception during level 5 restrictions. The hotel and staff did an outstanding job with room decor and service. Although we had limited numbers it was a lovely atmosphere and an intimate. It was a lovely day and guests really enjoyed it. Food was amazing and service fantastic. Lovely hotel and staff.

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 actually 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!!!

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 guest. Our guest raved about the hotel, so much so that some of our guest have booked events for their own family gatherings and celebrations this year.

As soon as myself and my husband walked into castleknock hotel we fell in love with it.we knew we wouldnt have to look anywhere else after that. Its spacious, bright , spotlessly clean, while maintaining a homely warm feeling. When we sat down to have a chat with the wedding co ordinator Julie we were delighted to find her professional, highly knowledgable, pleasant while full of enthusiasm to make our day special.we knew we had made the right choice. Its very hard I can imagine to cater for over 100 people however they managed to provide the most delicious wedding meal Ive ever tasted. The food is absolutely excellent. We wanted a wedding in Dublin so our family and friends didnt have to travel far and were expecting to pay a price for it. However the wedding cost no more than one would outside of Dublin. I would highly recommend anyone getting married to visit Castleknock

On behalf of my new husband and I, I would like to thank Castleknock Hotel from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with the most beautiful wedding day. Everything from start to finish on the day was perfect. The quality of the food provided from the welcome canapes right through to the evening nibbles was outstanding. Any queries or questions I had in the run up to the day were answered swiftly and any concerns I had were dealt with above and beyond what was expected. We have received so many compliments from guests who were so impressed with the level of service and attention to detail provided by the hotel. We would like to mention in particular Audrey who was one of our main points of contact in the run up to the wedding and who was there on the day to make sure everything went perfectly. Her warm and caring nature made us feel so relaxed and we are extremely grateful to her for all her support. Kevin in the ballroom was also an absolute dream and we were very impressed with his manner and the effort he went to to make sure we were delighted with everything. I would recommend Castleknock Hotel to any couple looking for a hotel that truly cares about it's wedding couples and will go above and beyond to ensure they have the perfect day. The quality of the service and food on offer is 2nd to none.

From our first visit to Castleknock Hotel in February 2018, we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our wedding reception. Every member of staff had a smile on their face and the initial coordinator we dealt with was fantastic. Communication was always an open line and every question we had was answered really quickly. When Julie came on board in January, any fears we may have had about a change in staff were immediately dismissed. 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 day of our wedding could not have been better. The day really did go without a hitch. The décor in the room was even better than we had hoped, the room looked so beautiful. The food was incredible, people are still talking about it! Everything was cooked perfectly and the standard of service in the room was impeccable, thank you Darragh! Julie really could not have done enough for us, coming to check in throughout the day and made sure to say goodbye before leaving. We had a BBQ the following day in the Lime Tree Bar and enjoyed eating out in the sunshine listening to the music we had arranged; additional food was needed but nothing was too much to ask! We stayed on a third night to relax and make the most of our time there and we are so glad we did. The hotel staff in general are incredible, everyone is happy, and they looked after us so well. Thank you for everything.

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 on 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 also and the duty manager on the day, Silvano Bastianiello 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.

I recently attended a wedding at Castleknock Hotel and I was blown away by the venue. It's location, sun trapped terrace and food, made it a day not to forget. The food was really well presented and so tasty and everyone at my table said the same. The room set-up was really cleaver and we didn't see any tables been moved around after dinner like so many other venues. I hope to return for another wedding in the future.

We chose The Castleknock Hotel after being let down by another hotel. After meeting with Lorraine Coyle (wedding coordinator) for the first time we thanked our lucky stars that the other hotel let us down, this lady is exceptional at what she does. Nothing was a problem and any time we sent an email, there was a response within hours. We just felt that she really cared about us and wanted to make our day as special as we wanted. As for the hotel itself, it exceeded our expectations and we are still getting comments from our guests about what a beautiful hotel it is and how excellent the service was and the quality of the food. Hearing that just makes it so much more special to us. To all of the staff in the hotel, from the waiters/waitresses when we came in for our tasting and other meetings, to the dining room staff on the day of our wedding, it was just flawless. We can’t wait to go back for our anniversary!

From the start Lorraine was a fantastic help always answering our phone calls or emails. We always wanted the winter theme for our wedding but the package was until February. We were planning to get married in February but due to family reasons we had to change it to March and Lorraine was happy to help as much as she could and even extended the winter theme to March. The whole team on our wedding day was absolutely fantastic and we did feel so at ease. It was definitely the best day of our life’s. I know the planning can be sometimes very stressful, even though I was stressed Lorraine made me feel calmer every time and was so helpful. I would recommend the hotel to anyone, the grounds are beautiful, the inside of the hotel has been redone and everything is simply stunning, and the food, oh my god the food is outstanding! If you can try the ceasar salad, our guests still talk about it! The hotel also has a spa and pool, our guest were delighted to be able to enjoy a swim the next morning.. Would redo it all over again if I could????

From the first moment we walked into Castleknock Hotel we fell in love with it. After visiting a couple of other venues, you just know when you have found the right one for you. Lorraine, the coordinator, was so professional and she went above and beyond with any requests that we had! Everyone loved the cocktail that was provided at the drinks reception! The room was set up just like we requested. The food was great and no complaints were voiced! We loved every minute of our wedding reception. It really couldn’t have gone any better. If anyone is looking for a Dublin city wedding I would highly recommend this hotel.

We had planned an intimate and affordable wedding and that is exactly what we got..... and more. We had initially just booked the restaraunt for 40 people and the plan was to feed the masses, have a chat and go on our merry way. This got thrown a curveball when we were informed after we had booked that the restaraunt would be closed for renovations. But..... that's where the fantastic staff in the Castleknock Hotel stepped up. We were moved to our own Suite, it was decorated beautifully. A red carpet entrance. We had a complementary prosecco reception and finger food. The menu we had agreed on was kept and the food was outstanding. We wed on the Thursday and ended up staying until the Sunday in the hotel. The staff were incredible, with a huge thank you to the Bar manager Andrew. He really made our stay memorable....

We had the Winter Wonderland package and the room looked amazing (although we did add a few bits ourselves). I do think it's a bit unfair that the Winter wonderland props are considered an extra perk even though they own them and it should be part of the theme. The food was nothing short of amazing and everyone raved about the beef. It was like fillet steak. We felt it was a bit small at our tasting and glad we mentioned it because they more than made up for it on the day. Nothing was too much for the staff on the day. We also went for the upgraded evening buffet whIch was great quality and was great soakage for the guests. Only two hiccups on the day was that the iPod that we had given to the hotel to Play music behind behind the bar during drinks reception got water damaged and the hotel refused to replace it. We also had a signing board for our guests to sign that the staff forgot to put out in the evening. This wasn't done and We were hugely disappointed when We realised the next day (you can't bring all your guests back). We had ordered our breakfast for 9am so we could say goodbye to all our guests. They had forgotten to do this too and we rang to remind them. It came at 10am with no milk for tea. This was annoying as we missed a good few of our guests. We brought these issues up with the hotel and NONE of them were resolved. This was disappointing as they had been very helpful up to this, and we felt that since the bill was settled and the big day was over, they no longer cared.

We honestly do not know how to thank all the management and staff at Castleknock, not just for our incredible day but our incredible weekend! We got married on 22 October 2016 and had our reception at the hotel. As we had a huge number of guests travelling, we needed a venue that was close to the city without being right in the city. Castleknock fitted our every requirement we had. From our initial meeting until leaving the Monday after the wedding, we were treated with nothing but kindness and professionalism. Lorraine and her team do an amazing job! The reservations team (Valarie and her colleagues) deserve special mention, they had so many queries and changes and everything was dealt with smoothly and efficiently - nothing was too much hassle for them! Since the day, all anyone can talk about is the food and the professionalism of all the staff on the day! The food was INCREDIBLE! Every member of staff knew our names and made us feel like the hotel was a home from home. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you sincerely to you all. We couldn't have done it without you. I would highly highly recommend Castleknock to any prospective Bride or Groom - you won't be disappointed!

Myself and my husband Barry would highly recommend the Castleknock Hotel for a wedding venue. We couldn't thank all the staff at Castleknock Hotel enough for giving us the most amazing day ever for our Wedding Day. It truly was the best day of our lives. The whole day went very smoothly. The staff was very professional and friendly. They were constantly checking that everything was ok for us and if we needed anything else. I was delighted that the wedding coordinators and the chefs let me choose my own menu. The food not only looked amazing but it tasted amazing too. Me, Barry and all our guests had an amazing night from start to finish. We were especially happy that they put on the Conor McGregor fight for us and our guests at 6am and had no problems with us taking over the place to watch it. We also had a BBQ the following day and the food for the BBQ was also lovely. It was the best weekend ever. It's Just over a year since our wedding and people are still talking about it and saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We would highly recommend the Castleknock Hotel as the best Wedding Venue. Xxx

I recently got married in the Castleknock Hotel and the events team there were outstanding from start to finish. All our requests no matter how big or small were listened too and dealt with. All our dealings with the hotel up to the wedding day were great and they always got back to us straight away. We got married in the hotel and everything on the day went perfectly and that again was down to the professionalism of the events team and how they all worked as a team to make sure everything went according to plan. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the castleknock hotel for a wedding and wedding ceremony as they know how to make your special day extra special

The staff at Castleknock could not be more helpful, as the bride they relieved all my stress & worries both before and on the day. They were so attentive and the day went perfectly well with no glitches. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Castleknock for your special day, the only negative is that I can't do it all over again.

I highly recommend Castleknock as a wedding venue. The hotel itself is clean, modern and well-managed. It's a lovely hotel for guests to stay in and I loved the bar and outdoor patio for the drinks reception. The function room is lovely and they decorate it beautifully for weddings. The staff are fantastic! Sinead, the wedding co-ordinator (and all the staff) were always so enthusiastic, professional, helpful and accommodating. I was very particular about how I wanted the wedding to be and Sinead organised everything to perfection! Every meeting was like having coffee with a friend and it took away the stress knowing there was someone I could trust to sort out the details and be there on the day to make sure everything went to plan. And it did! I really can't think of any faults with this venue. They are extremely accommodating and great value for money. The food is fantastic. My husband and I had an amazing time as did all of our guests.

We loved this venue! I was the bride and I had always loved this place every time we drove by it. Their pick a perk package was really a great idea. You get so many different things to pick and choose which was fantastic. On the day the staff really knew what they were doing and I was not disturbed at all. They went straight to my bridesmaid with any query which was so thoughtful. The one thing though is that I wished they had listened to me more carefully as I had stated that in my culture, people tend to just show up at and not rsvp so we told them to be ready and prepare for maybe an extra 10 people. However they kept insisting that most weddings end up with less people than intended. Long story short, more people did turn up and it was a scramble to find the extra seating but they handled it very well. It wasn't such a big deal but something I think the hotel needs to work on. Just be aware that each couple is different and listen to our advice. Don't let this put you off though! Castleknock was fantastic and if I could do it all over again, it would be here!!!

We had our wedding in the Castleknock Hotel in March. From the day we met with Sinead, we were made to feel very welcome and that they could cater for all of our needs. We had pretty much made up our mind after the first visit that this was the venue for us. After the meal tasting we had a few changes we wished to make which were all done without any hassle. On the day of our wedding, the sun was shining and an area in the beer garden had been reserved for our guests. The staff provided a great service for us and our guests. The day was everything we wished for and I don't have any complaints about the service we received from the hotel. I would highly recommend the Castleknock Hotel to anyone planning a wedding no matter how big or small.

What a wonderful venue we had for our wedding day. I will never forget it. The staff were amazing, the venue was perfect. Every detail was as we wanted it. It is a beautiful hotel and so convenient if the vast majority of your guests are from Dublin. Going to a wedding is a huge cost and we wanted to make it as easy and cost effective for all our guests. Everyone was so impressed with how smoothly the day ran and the feedback we have from our guests was just fantastic. The wedding / events planners in the hotel were so helpful, so quick to come back on queries and made the whole thing so so easy. Everyone was congratulating us on how organised the day was, not realising that is was the staff in Castleknock hotel that really deserved the credit! I would recommend this venue to anyone considering booking their wedding - I wish we could do it all again.....we wouldn't change a thing !

Winter Wonderland. Room was nicely decorated. Food was tasty - dinner and evening food. Staff were nice to deal with. They kindly had us back for an anniversary dinner the following year which was a nice touch. When choosing perks I'd avoid the snow machine (it didn't work) and the next day "BBQ" as it was nothing like a BBQ, it was a couple of goujons/ cocktail sausages/wedges and there wasn't much given out, a definite waste of a perk.

Hi Gael / Sinead, Just back from honeymoon and wanted to send you a quick note to say thanks so much for making our wedding day everything we'd hoped for and much more. The room looked absolutely amazing and along with the food & service the whole wedding package was far beyond what we'd anticipated. We had so many wedding guests compliment us on the food and how well the venue looked on the day it's needless to say I'd have no hesitation in recommending Castleknock Hotel for anyone considering it as their wedding venue. Having a brother-in-law involved in the wedding industry who chauffeurs couples to their wedding venue every week and hearing him comment in glowing terms of the hotel, staff & service speaks volumes for the job you all did on our wedding day. A special mention has to go to you Sinead for the constant communication and looking after every little detail in the lead-up to our big day. You were so professional, a pleasure to deal with and made the whole planning process so easy for us. Lorraine in reservations who always kept me up to date with all of the guests in our bridal party who were staying over, thanks again. Also a big thank you to Artur, Rachel and the rest of the banqueting team who did a fantastic job throughout dinner and had no problem rearranging one of our tables at the last minute when I discovered 2 guests weren't able to make it on the day. Everything ran like clockwork from the time we arrived at the hotel until we left the residents bar in the early hours of the morning. Anyone who attended our wedding could see why the hotel won it's recent award for hotel of the year. Thank you all so much again, and we look forward to enjoying our next stay at the hotel soon.

Hi Audrey, Sorry for only coming back to you now as I/we are just recovering from what was such an intense, stressed, mental, but absolutely wonderful weekend! Well all we can say is...I’m sure you constantly get tons of response saying “thanks for everything/well done/much appreciated” etc., but I hope you might single this one out and take to heart: Our wedding at the Castleknock Hotel was not just everything you promised and we expected, but massively so very much more. We had an incredible day and indeed weekend which hugely stemmed from the simply amazing job, service and hospitality done and provided by you and everyone there. Every request and ask - not just by us and our immediate bridal party, but by all of our guests (whether staying over or just there for the day and whether little or large) was dealt with and met immediately, totally and happily (and we got so much feedback and stories to easily state this claim)… plus was all done with friendliness, interest and a feeling of importance which made it all so much easier on us. What you’re doing there goes beyond justifying “wedding venue of the year” awards to deserving heartfelt gratitude from customers and guests like us/ours for making such a special occasion in our lives actually truly… SPECIAL! An amazing job and service such as this comes from good management and trickles down through and to all and every your staff there - each had a “hello“, interest and attention-to-making-us-happy for which we are eternally indebted. Thank you once again, and talk soon

We just wanted to drop you guys a mail to say a BIG THANK YOU for your help in organising the most amazing wedding day, everything from start to finish was just perfect, it couldn’t have went any better. There really was nothing to fault, the staff were so attentive and accommodating (they even kicked three gate-crashers off the dance floor and out of the room towards the end of the night, or so I heard, ha!), the food was amazing, all the guests were just so impressed. We just felt really well looked after, and any stress that was lingering just melted away J You guys are extremely good at what you do, I can certainly understand why you won Hotel Of The Year, the service was second to none! Apologies for the delay in getting this across to you all, we have just returned from honeymoon, unfortunately L We are now looking forward to our next trip to the hotel, which hopefully will be sooner rather than later.

Just to say we both had a fantastic time on Thursday and Friday last and couldn't have wanted things to go any smoother. I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff who were all very attentive and were very accomodating on the night to what we wanted, which wasn't very much, like you have been in the run up to the event. I could not praise Castleknock Hotel highly enough, on Thursday the restaurant staff were second to none and all the guests were singing the praises of both the venue and the menu. We didn't have the full 21 and the staff waited to ask if that was it rather than rush into taking orders etc, even though we were slightly delayed, and did ask if we were expecting more to arrive before proceeding. Friday the food was served to each table after the speeches was also delicious and the room looked fantastic. Many people I have spoken to over the last couple of days would change biuts and bobs of their wedding day but I think I can safely say we wouldn't change a thing and that is due in no small part to the levels of service and attention to detail given by you and your colleagues.

We just wanted to say thank you for everything you did for us for our wedding recently. The whole process from the wedding planning and the day itself went so well and we are so pleased that we have so many amazing memories from our time at the Castleknock Hotel. All our guests have been commenting on what a great time they had and how they loved the hotel - we'd especially like to make a mention to all the staff involved in returning my nephew's winnie the pooh teddy which he left behind. He is only 3 and is over the moon at his return !! We truly felt that we were treated so well throughout our entire stay and the hotel were very accomodating with all our requests. Hugh, we especially felt really looked after by you on the wedding day so thank you for everything you did. All the waiting staff who served our wedding breakfast did a fantastic job. We look forward to returning to the hotel soon enough for a stay. Thank you again and all the best
