Our wedding day at Clontarf Castle Hotel was a truly special day in every sense of the word, all due to the warmth, professionalism, efficiency and flexibility of the hotel's amazing staff and their most elegant and beautiful castle hotel and grounds. Having our wedding just before Christmas was extra special as the magical, festive atmosphere created by the staff was exceptional and added hugely to the enjoyment of our special day. Guests who travelled from abroad were particularly impressed with Clontarf Castle Hotel as a wedding venue and, like my husband and I, have very fond and special memories of their experience there. A special word of thanks goes to our wedding co-ordinator, Marianne Fanning, who I would highly ... Read more

Our wedding day was extraordinary! I feel that Clontarf staff did their very best.. amazing food, welcoming staff, beautiful decoration. Especially the wedding coordinator, Rachel, was professional, kind and great to meet our requests and wish list. I surely recommend it to all future couples.

We had our dream wedding at Clontarf Castle on the 18th September. We were so impressed since the very first time we visited the castle. Everybody went out of their way to make sure our wedding day was unforgettable. The place is so beautiful,the staff outstanding and the food amazing. Everywhere we go now,we compare to Clontarf Castle. The standards there are so high . The breakfast is the best we had by a mile. What a wonderful place! Can't recommend it enough!

My husband and I got married at Clontarf Castle on November 12th, 2016, so we have just celebrated our one year anniversary which is pretty amazing! I am originally from Ireland but I have been living in Canada for over a decade and so my husband and I were not planning the wedding in 8 months but we were also doing it from Canada. From the beginning of the planning process the staff and wedding planners at Clontarf Castle were amazing, even with the time difference and the many emails that I sent, they always responded in a professional and timely manner. Honestly getting married in a castle you already feel like a princess but the amount of work and ... Read more

I must say that Clontarf Castle exceeded all of my expectations. I couldn't have asked for a better venue to have my wedding at. The staff was EXCELLENT! Every single person was so courteous and helpful. The entire wedding was amazing from start to finish. Even the planning process was easy. Every time I called with a question (or 30), they were always available to assist. My wedding coordinator, Rachael Clarke, was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had so many guests stay at the Castle and not one single person had anything bad to say. They all loved the staff and food! Our reception meal was gorgeous! Truly enjoyed every minute of my wedding and I can't thank ... Read more

I cannot recommend Clontarf Castle enough as a wedding venue. The venue is absolutely stunning, a perfect mix of modern and medieval, and makes for gorgeous photographs. The food was gorgeous, we still have guests commenting on it! The star of Clontarf Castle for me is definitely Rachel Clarke, our wedding coordinator. Nothing was a problem for her, there was no stress at all, her advice and tips were so helpful, and she was a lovely person to be around. If I could go back and do it all again I would still choose Clontarf Castle!
by Ellen Gough on Fri, 10th November, 2017
We had our wedding on New Years Eve. They were very accomadable and went above and beyond. I had about 30 people flying over from Canada all staying at the hotel and they loved it. They even had the bar stay open for what time New Yrs would be back in Toronto. Everyone was so nice and they played the exact music I wanted at the exact time I wanted it. We got married at the venue as well as the reception and the room changed over perfectly. The food was amazing as well as all the staff. I don’t think they ever told me no at my requests. Lol
by Gemma Desmond on Thu, 9th November, 2017
Perfect day with amazing staff who tended to our every need before we even knew what we needed. Extremely professional and efficient and the day ran like clockwork. Everyone commented on the excellent staff and their ability to look after the entire crowd and all of their wishes. Couldnt have asked for more. Superb.
by Marie Claire Porter on Thu, 9th November, 2017
We had the most amazing wedding day at Clontarf Castle. We worked with Rachel the wedding coordinator throughout the planning process and she was so professional and so kind. We also talked to many of the staff in the hotel to get a feel for the place and how our alternative wedding would work. So we were really confident that the team at Clontarf would have it all in hand. Rachael had so much patience with us and worked through every minute detail for us. On the day the team were superb. The venue was just stunning and so classy. The food was fantastic in the Farhenheit Restaurant and our party in the Indigo Lounge worked out so well. The ... Read more

by Nuala on Thu, 2nd November, 2017
We recently had our wedding in Clontarf Castle ( August 2017) and I can't rate the Castle and in particularly their wedding co-ordinator , Rachael Clarke highly enough. We began dealing with Clontarf Castle last year and the whole process was seamless. Our wedding was a civil ceremony, followed by a barbecue for 120 adults and 10 children - the crowd was from all over the world - myself a local from Dublin and my husband from Brisbane, Australia so the guests were Irish, Australian, English, Canadian and a few more countries thrown in! The feedback from all our guests was ' great venue, amazing food, the staff are so nice and brilliant band". We couldn't recommend the Castle as ... Read more

The day itself was perfect and beyond what i expected, all of the satff were helpful and made aure our day went smoothly.

by Claire and Colm Browne on Fri, 27th October, 2017
We had our wedding here recently and really cannot recommend the staff and venue enough. Rachael the wedding coordinator was very efficient and organised and a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much bother. We had our meal in the Fahrenheit restaurant, which had a lovely atmosphere and then downstairs for drinks and dancing. The food was restaurant standard, really delicious. Rachael and her team did an excellent job putting up any extra lights, decorations and flowers I had dropped down. The whole day was fantastic, we had no worries just a lot of fun!
by Leah on Fri, 27th October, 2017
We had our wedding at Clontarf in the end of August 2016. Our humanist service was in the Viking Suite, the wedding reception was in the Hall, and our cookout the next day was in the Indigo Lounge. We had a wonderful selection of foods for both the wedding and the BBQ. We actually had a hard time deciding because everything was so good, particularly for the BBQ. I am originally from the States and we were going to have a number of family and friends travelling to Ireland for the first time for the wedding. We wanted something central that was also beautiful and impressive. Clontarf Castle was the perfect choice. Everyone was impressed by the grounds, the hotel ... Read more

We couldn't have been happier that we chose Clontarf Castle Hotel as the venue for our Wedding reception. From the first meeting right up to the day itself the team were superb. Marianne was so generous with her time in walking us through the preparations and from day one we knew we were in safe hands. They were so professional throughout and the catering was excellent and the service impeccable. We wouldn't hesitate for a moment in recommending Clontarf Castle and their great team to any couple looking for a wedding venue in Dublin.
by Orla & Jay on Fri, 27th October, 2017

by Michael Curtis on Fri, 27th October, 2017
I give my highest recommendations for Clontarf Castle, it is a perfect spot for holding your wedding. The hotel has a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and all staff is friendly and helpful. Additionally we received great and professional assistance with planning our wedding from Marianne and Amanda, and everything went smoothly on the day. When we were short on one bedroom for one of our guest, front desk took care of it. All our guests had a good time and enjoyed their stay in Clontarf.
by Anna on Wed, 4th October, 2017

by Debbie on Wed, 4th October, 2017
Clontarf Castle was our top choice for wedding venue and definitely didn't disappoint. From the point we booked our wedding up until the wedding day itself the staff could not have been more helpful and professional. I could not recommend enough. All of our wedding guests commented on how beautiful the hotel was.
by Danielle Pullan on Wed, 4th October, 2017
We hosted our wedding here and had an amazing experience! Ciara and Rachael were both extremely helpful planning everything out, and throughout the evening Mark took good care of us. Venue is beautiful, staff is accommodating, rooms are comfortable and well decorated, food is delicious! We truly have no complaints - our wedding went off without a hitch and all of the guests loved this venue! I'm especially impressed given that we planned this as a destination wedding, organizing everything online and over the phone. Thanks to the great staff, everything was perfect! They really thought of everything.

All the staff especially Leonara the wedding planner at the time were fantastic, so helpful & couldn't do enough to help us & make our day special. The food was amazing with all our guests compliment our choices but it was really the chef they were complimenting !!! Gave us great memories so thank you all at Clontarf Castle.

I got married on the 1st of April 1977. We had our reception in clontarf castle for a whole 19 people including ourselves! The staff were fantastic it was a very intimate reception, the food was divine and all our needs were catered for. After the meal we went downstairs and watched a show withow some morexamples frienda which ca me to meet us. Staff reaervered front row seats for us. Our wedding reception cost us the grand sum of 99 pounds. What a difference it is today! We would not change a thing about our wedding day and plan on going back in April for our 40 year anniversary.
by Carmel on Tue, 9th August, 2016
Fantastic day in an amazing venue. From our first visit to the Castle the staff were so accomadating. Nothing we asked for was a hassle. They went out of their way to make sure we felt very special... On the day everything went to plan again the staff were on point all day. The honeymoon suite was the nicest room I've ever stayed in. Photographs taken in & outside the castle are fantastic. The evening after the wedding we met up in the bar & had the best craic. 16 years married 10th August what a wonderful way to celebrate if I won this ....

Myself and my husband got married here on 12th September 2015. It was without a doubt the best weekend we ever had. We also had a BBQ there the following day. Not only are the surroundings out of this world, the staff are too. They absolutely made the experience 10 times better than we ever could have imagined. The wedding coordinators, general managers, chefs and waiting staff treated every single guest like A list celebrities all weekend! They are all a credit to the hotel! We cannot wait to return for our one year anniversary dinner in September. Magical, magnificent and memorable is the best way to describe the hotel which in my opinion is a hidden gem in Dublin! ...

We got married on Saturday 18th of August 07. The weather was miserable; rained heavy all day. So the venue for our photographs was not an option. We headed straight to the hotel and from the moment we arrived it was just magical, I could not have cared less about the rain. The hotel staff were amazing helped us out with our wedding photos. The food was excellent and staff so helpful. My Dad had cancer at the time and sadly passed away the following year so my wedding day experience is something I will cherish which of course could not of been made possible without the staff and of course the exceptional food.

How to start I got married in Clontarf Castle in 2015, from the start of the preparation we were being looked after so well. We stayed the night before and after the wedding. The wedding day was magical.. The staff are so friendly and looked after us so well.. The dinner served was delicious.. Waiter and waitress was unbelievably good with the service they provide. The afters in the lounge was class.. Guests kept on saying what a beautiful spot. The night we stayed we got upgraded to en suite bridal room.. The hotel and the staff made us feel so special..
by Kate Smyth on Sun, 7th August, 2016
We got married on March 3rd of this year...and to say we we were bowled over by Clontarf castle would be an understatement. Right from the get-go, the attention to detail we received was fantastic. Our wedding coordinator Amanda was brilliant, and with us throughout the planning,...by the end I think she knew every like & dislike we had, from food to colour schemes to music...& she used it all to put a fantastic day together for us. She wasn't working alone though, as each staff member we met could not have done more to help our big day go off smoothly and without a glitch...(if there were any glitches we knew nothing of any of them!). From the hotel ... Read more

We got married on the 15th June this year. We had a civil ceremony in Clontarf Castle with just 24 guests. We wanted to keep things simple and non stressful, Amanda was great. Anything we suggested to her was not a problem. We cannot compliment the staff enough. Everything was perfect. We had an amazing room to stay in that night and the little touches were unexpected and very much appreciated. We would thoroughly recommend Clontarf Castle for your special day. .
by Jane Devlin on Sun, 7th August, 2016
Our wedding day 5 years ago in the castle was fabulous from start to finish. We loved our drinks reception in the indigo lounge, it was perfect for the size of our wedding group (approx 180), we got a chance to see people and speak with them. We had a chocolate fountain and musicians there too which has really added to the atmosphere. Our dinner, wow is all I can say, 5 years and people still talk about the chicken salad that we had as our starter, it was amazing. No on had a bad word to say about the food, it was all wonderful. We had the singing waiters for entertainment at dinner which went down a treat with ... Read more

Fantastic wedding which started months prior with the excellent team in the office!! 29th July 2015 will forever be our memory but Clontarf castle made that bit more... And Inmust say that every single guest took time to mention how wonderful all the staff were which is very rare nowadays! 10/10 - 100% recommended.
by Aoife Smeaton on Sat, 6th August, 2016
We were married at the castle seven years ago! It was the most magical day and could not have been better. From the moment we booked the castle as our venue every member of staff were as helpful as can be, Adele on the event management team was so supportive and nothing was too big an ask. She helped with every detail and put us in touch with a great florist too. Everything was just as we wanted on the day and all our guests had a great time. We would definitely recommend Clontarf to anyone getting married, our only regret is that we can't do it all over again!
by Karenn on Sat, 6th August, 2016
We celebrated our wedding day in Nov 13 and from start to finish everything was great. No question was left unanswered no matter how silly it sounded! The castle was dressed and ready for Christmas so it really added to our photos. The only issue we had was dietary,we requested some foods suitable for a celiac for the evening reception and it was not done.
by Ciara Acton on Sat, 6th August, 2016
We had our wedding on the 2/1/2009 & we're the first couple to have our civil service in the hotel & it was fabulous the hotel, ceremony room & reception room were beautiful. The staff were fantastic & the whole a dream come true. Would highly recommend having your wedding in Clontarf Castle

Got married in Oct 2012 & had the reception in Clontarf Castle. The staff could not have done more to help us with the planning & coordinating of our day. They were very facilitating towards anything we wanted to do / have done for the day. Food was AMAZING! Great sing song in the residents bar at the end of the night. Couldn't have had a better time! Have a couple great pics of us sitting on the lion at the front door at 5 in the morning, me in my wedding dress & him in his suit!

I had always dreamed of having my wedding here from the minute i seen my Mam and Dads photos from their big day at Clontarf Castle. We were on a really tight budget and didn't think we would be able to have it here.I was so disheartened about it and my new husband could sense it.. No where else lived up to the magical castle to me.My husband to me we were going for a drive but little did I know he had arranged a meeting with your wedding coordinator.I was so surprised but also a little skeptical given our budget. He explained our budget and that we understood we were not in a position to have the full meal ... Read more

We held our wedding meal & party here after getting married in Las Vegas last year. The staff were so friendly and helpful - they even suggested a photographer who we ended up using for the day! Both the family meal and the party food that evening were outstanding and the hotel restaurant and venue were beautiful. The wedding suite with observation area (including a telescope) was AMAZING! We would thoroughly recommend Clontarf to and bride and groom for your special day
by Elaine Moore on Sat, 6th August, 2016
We had our wedding reception there in June 2010 and have lovely memories of the day spent there. My parents also had their wedding at the castle in 1976 so it's an extra special place for us. Everything was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better day. The staff and wedding coordinators were so helpful on the lead up to the wedding and were excellent on the day also. We would highly recommend clontarf castle as a wedding venue.

We got married on the 24th of october 2013 and we had the most fabulous day. The preparation and help I had received from Clontarf Castle were just great. Whenever I felt something could not be solved I rang or emailed and I felt like a load was taking of my shoulders. As I am from germany my family came over and stayed in the hotel for two nights and thought this was just amazing. The views,location,food and the castle feel gave them such an amazing impression of Ireland that they have been back to Ireland and holidayed in different parts of the country. I left the hotel that morning for the church and the staff were just sooo helpful ... Read more

by Lynda McNamara on Sat, 6th August, 2016
It was the most perfect day. The only flaw was that time went by too quickly. The staff were all exceptional and made us and our guests feel so special. I can't complement the staff enough, nothing was any trouble for them and that really makes all the difference on your big day. The food was out of this world, I'd highly recommend the Asian chicken salad starter, it's fab. Everything went off without a hitch, the room looked even better than I had imagined it. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same if it were anywhere else. Lynda & Paddy

The best day of my life was only made better by having my reception at Clontarf Castle. I always wanted a castle wedding but didn't want to have to travel too far so this was so perfect and it was local for us. I cannot fault anything on the day and I couldn't believe how perfect and personal everything was on the day. We were made feel so special all day and all of the staff we met were just so sweet to us and our guests. We had a cocktail reception which was fantastic and the weather was lovely so they opened up the decking area to us and the dinner was just amazing! Everything was organised to perfection.. ...

Had a beautiful wedding here in clontarf castle back in September 1992 , it wasn't a hotel back then so we could not stay overnight , the reception took place in the Kings hall upstairs in what is now the Fahrenheit restaurant , we still visit the castle as we live quite near it is a very special place to us.

10 years on and I still sigh...best day ever! Attention to detail was second to none and nothing was too big a task. Niamh our wedding coordinator was beside us throughout the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. People still talk about the food. We come back to stay and reminisce and smile. A fantastic venue especially this time of year.

We just had our wedding at the beautiful Clontarf Castle hotel last week in November. The whole day was perfect (apart from the weather of course) from start to finish. The castle looked great with the Christmas decorations up, the main room looked so pretty. The food was delicious and the service was fab, all the staff were so lovely and helpful. So many of our guests were praising our choice of venue, it really was perfect in every way. Our wedding co-ordinator Amanda did a brilliant job also, and management were always close by if we needed anything. We cant thank you all enough, it really was the best day of our lives!!! Would love to do it all ... Read more

Our wedding at Clontarf Castle was magical from start to finish we could not have wished for more. We've always loved the venue & like most girls I wanted the perfect day out & it was exactly that & much more. From the wedding fair, to booking our date the staff could not be more friendly & fantastic to deal with. They made us feel like our day so important to them & couldn't do enough for us. Any questions or queries I had I would email our wedding co-ordinator & she'd always get back to me soon after with the answer. They are such a busy & very well known hotel but every guest & couple getting married was ... Read more

We had an extremely positive experience from our very first meeting with Marianne to our wedding day itself. We found all hotel staff very professional and friendly, making us feel special on each occasion. We were very relaxed on the day of our wedding as we knew everything would be looked after. Our guests were full of praise for the venue with the food on the day of our wedding being a real high light. I would love to be a guest at a wedding in the castle and experience it from that perspective too. We loved our day and have super memories. Thanks to all involved.
by Louise on Mon, 30th November, 2015
Five star treatment from Clontarf for our wedding party. We enjoyed a fabulous family meal in the Fahrenheit Grill restaurant followed by an evening of celebrations in the Indigo Lounge. The staff were extremely helpful in the run up to the day and on the day itself, very attentive and answered all our queries promptly even recommending the photographer we ended up using! I would thoroughly recommend Clontarf Castle Hotel to anybody planning their wedding.
by Peter & Livia on Mon, 30th November, 2015
We had our wedding in Clontarf Castle in 2015. We can only say good thing about them. The venue itself is wonderful, a nice mix of old world castle feel and modern and well maintained facilities, rooms, etc. The staff we dealt with were knowledgeable and very supportive in getting all the details to fall into place. For example, when selecting our wedding menu, the catering managers and chefs worked closely with us until we were totally happy with what our guests would be served. On the day, everything was timely and we were very happy with the level of service and attention we got, as were our guests. We would highly recommend Clontarf Castle for a wedding venue.
by Paula Keane on Mon, 30th November, 2015
The Clontarf Castle was absolutely fabulous. The staff could not have helped more, they went above and beyond their roles even the wedding coordinator came in on her day off to ensure our day went to plan(we got married on a Sunday). There is not one thing that I would change in respect of the Clontarf Castle. My day was so special and it is all down to the staff. The food was also devine. All my guests were very impressed with not only the menu but the food on the day of the wedding!! The grounds are also very well maintained and they really enhanced the photographs taken. In my opinion the Clontarf Castle is the ideal place for ... Read more

Wedding of Ausra & Martin McAleer 13/07/15 Guests: 70 "A memorable day for everyone, Thank You!" Arrival reception: Knights Bar (With the newly created outside decked area) This is in the original part of the castle and gave everyone a taster of the quality decor, food, service and atmosphere. The Mini-Burgers and Scones were a massive hit! We had prosecco, tea and coffee and lemonade for the children. We had an ice cream cart and the hotel were happy for it to go on the decked area, which was great for the kids (Young and old). We had a solo jazz guitarist playing a set inside the Knights bar in one of the bay windows. It was just how we ... Read more

We got married in Clontarf Castle on June 10th 2010. We loved every aspect of our day. We chose Clontarf Castle as it was a local venue for us but also had such class. We relaxed knowing that we were so well looked after by the exceptionally professional staff every step of the way. 5 years on and we look back on our day with nothing but happy memories.

Clontarf Castle is the dream hotel to get married in . I truly felt like a princess on the day and that's because I was treated like one from the start to the end .From the moment we booked our wedding which was only a small wedding of 30 guests during the day we were treated by lovely pleasant staff who could do no more for us.They are a very experienced team who can sort out any situation that may arise which for us we had many from booking the hotel and not the Celebrant and then realising everyone was booked out, but they have so many contacts that wasn't a problem,we even were let down by our dj two ...

King & Queen of the wonderful Clontarf Castle! The dining hall and bedroom suites were recently renovated to a very high standard and felt warm and luxurious. The bridal suite was particularly stunning, amazing wall paper, fabrics, four poster bed and views of Dublin! I regretted only booking in for one night as I hardly spent any time in the room. Arrived to find a lovely framed painting of the hotel with our names and wedding date recorded on it. A lovely surprise and momento of a fantastic day and great choice of wedding venue. Despite the many last minute decisions, Amanda our wedding coordinator, instilled confidence in me that everything was under control. Of all the things on my ... Read more

Absolutely stunning venue! From the moment we arrived in Clontarf Castle last December to enquire about our September wedding we were sold... And booked their and then. Following a walk through with our wedding co ordinator Marianne we both knew we would be looked after 110%. Every element of our day was taken care of, nothing was too big or small. The hotel itself is stunning, a beautiful mix of old with a perfect location. All our guests had the wow factor arriving! The service is second to none in clontarf with professional bar and waiting staff and the food through out the day was first class. I cannot thank them enough for our wonderfully perfect day!

My name is Niamh and I had my wedding at Clontarf Castle Hotel in November. The hotel made it very easy during the planning process. They were very responsive to messages and emails which meant less stress for me! My wedding was very much a diy wedding and thought this might have made things a little difficult on the day but the hotel were very accommodating on setting things up for me!! I also wanted a very relaxed menu for the day with food that I liked and other venues were not very helpful or accommodating in this respect but Clontarf Castle said straight away that it was our day and we could have whatever we wanted! We had our ... Read more

My wedding day was prepared with so much caring by all Contarf Castle hotel staff. Every detail that we had planned previously was done and managed perfectly by them. Both spots (the restarant and also the room) were beautiful and well decorated, and food was delicious! I loved the fact that we could had the back garden for the bbq, pictures, and my guests could enjoyed the sun in one of the prettiest day that I was lucky to get in the last September! Thanks all of you!

What can I say about this hotel??? Writing a little review would not be enough to explain how well myself an my wife were treated at Clontarf Castle. We got married on 20-11-2015 an stayed there the nite before as well. Clontarf staff and planners done everything an more for us from the time we enter the hotel, even up to when we were leaving. From the littlest things to the biggest things all made easy thanks to Clontarf Castle. A hassle free wedding.
by Michele Somers on Tue, 24th November, 2015
We celebrated our wedding in April 2015 at Clontarf Castle Hotel. We had booked the Viking suite downstairs for the reception as it was the perfect size for our intimate wedding. The room looked just stunning after Event Central (recommended by Clontarf) were finished with it. I really really cannot fault the service and the help we had planning the day. We really wanted the day to be personal to us and Clontarf really really succeeded in adding in so many little personal touches throughout the lead up to and the day itself that made the day extra special. The staff were professional and so organised, everything was exactly as we had asked and set up the way we wanted. ... Read more

We got married in the Clontarf Castle Valentines day 2013. We definitely made the right choice. I work in the Wedding industry so I'm familiar with all Hotels in Dublin and surrounding areas. The venue is like no other, a Castle in the heart of Dublin with a modern twist. This is a 5 star Wedding Venue and it ticks all boxes when it comes to food, friendliness and sophistication. I would highly recommend this venue, the food is superb and the staff are extremely professional...when you add up every little detail it makes your day extra special. Be King & Queen for the day and book Clontarf Castle. Nothing Compares

We had our wedding reception in Clontarf Castle and I cannot speak highly enough of the team, the food, the service everything was perfect. Attention to detail was second to none from the very first meeting with Gabriella. On the day itself all members of management were on hand, ready to help us in any way they could. The meal was divine. We had a steak and fish min course and the beef was cooked perfectly. Everytime we met one of our guests after the big day they spoke so highly of the venue and their wonderful staff. Highly recommend the venue. Would love to do it all over again in Clontarf

My mam and dad were married there in 1977 and my mam passed away in 2004 so it was such a joy to be able to marry at the same venue. The castle is amazing and all my 150 guests had a amazing day too. They were overwhelmed at how lovely the castle and staff were. I have since stayed in the castle on many occasions and just stayed there last month. It was a gift from my brothers as they know how much we love it there. I would love to win this so much as I always look forward ... Read more

The staff are second to none when it comes friendliness and professionalism. We would like to say a massive thank you to Marianne, Laura, Barath and their team, who made the organising of our wedding a simple and stress free process from the very start. Nothing was too much trouble both in the run up to (and on the day of) our wedding. The food was excellent and our guests are still complimenting our choice of wedding venue.

Before we had even booked our reception, the event staff of Clontarf Castle had already gone above and beyond in arranging to meet us numerous times and went through the various options. They were always available and always so helpful. The Great Hall looked spectacular on the day. The food was fabulous as we knew it would be and our guests still comment on it. We recommend Clontarf Castle as a wedding venue all the time because not only is the venue stunning, the staff make planning a wedding so easy! One of the best decisions we made was choosing Clontaf Castle as our wedding venue.

From the wedding coordination, the flowers, the concierge staff to reception staff, it was by far the best experience I have ever had. Both friendly and kind, the team at Clontarf Castle hotel were helpful, supportive and there for us every step of the way. They were all organized, and truly a professional group. Anything I needed, I had! In fact, we even lost our wedding certificate and everyone (including the duty manager) went looking for it! (And I mean they even went through the garbage to find it!).
