My husband and I got married in Castle Dargan Resort in June 2019. We absolutely loved it and had an amazing day. We had our afterparty there also, and the whole weekend was fantastic! The staff couldn’t do enough for us and were always very friendly. Our guests had a great time and loved the

hotel too. We are both from Mayo and our family told us they loved being in the hotel for the whole weekend and found it very relaxing. My husband and I loved the hotel from the moment we walked into it over a year and a half ago and we were so happy to have our Big Day there. Tanya was so helpful and always quick in replying to any queries we had.

The whole day went fabulously! A day I will never forget! Tanya was great and very helpful and Mary was great at helping me sort out the rooms. It’s a fabulous location for any event, especially weddings. Food was excellent. And there are great opportunities for photos.

Wow! Where do we start? What a day! And, what an amazingly professional service we received from all the staff in Castle Dargan. They were all top class - especially Breege, Tanya, Jordan, Patrick, the lovely bar manager (sorry forgot the name) and the lovely Mary. You are a super team and made

On the 21st December 2019, we got married in Castle Dargan Hotel. From the moment we viewed the hotel and met their wedding coordinator Tanya, we knew it was the wedding venue for us. The professionalism, friendless of all staff was outstanding. Our wedding day went so smoothly thanks to Tanya and

We got married in Castle Dargan on the 28th of December 2019. It was an unforgettable day/night and we would like to thank all the outstanding members of staff (reception, bar, waiters, waitresses, management) for the fantastic service you provided. To name just one though, Tanya the wedding

coordinator couldn’t do enough for us and made sure every little detail was taken care of. From the moment we booked our menu tasting to the finer last minute details & finally to the big day everything was excellent. The food tasted fantastic, it was hot, there was loads on the plate and everything ran on time, which we loved and so did our guests. Any extras we wanted, were no problem. The room was dressed superbly. The surroundings of Castle Dargan are breath taking. Our guests were very pleased with all aspects of the day, not to mind ourselves and, for that, we thank you. We can’t wait to go back and have a relaxing break. From the new Mr & Mrs Egan

with. There was nothing to big or small i asked of you that you didn't try to accommodate. You and your team made the whole experience seamless and effortless. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day. Compliments to the Chefs for the amazing food and the waiting staff for the prompt and professional service. Also the bar staff were excellent and served us until the wee early hours of the morning.

My mum slipped and twisted her ankle and a member of your staff assisted her to her room. Which we were so grateful for too. Dean and the band put on a great performance to get the crowd going and we just enjoyed ourselves so much.

So on behalf of Philip and myself we are so happy to have chosen your venue to host our wedding. Feel free to use my comments on any feedback reviews you may have because it truly deserves top marks in every aspect imaginable. Without doubt Castledargan is the best wedding venue in Sligo.

Kind Regards,
Natasha McGowan,

amazing(everyone is still talking about it!) And, as usual, the service was second to none! One of my guests is a chef, has been for about 30years and he said he could not fault one thing. We were also told that having attended our wedding, it had restored some of our guests faith in weddings

Wow... We had our wedding at this amazing venue may 2015.. It was superb on every level. I would recommend this hotel to absolutely everyone! We originally met Kim, the wedding coordinator 14 months before our wedding date, and she was an instant Ray of sunshine, she is professional, helpful, made

us feel completely at ease... Especially as we live in England ...nothing was too much trouble, and any question at all Kim was straight back to us on email within the hour!.. Just incredible, we felt like the service was so personalised and we were made to feel so special. Something we never felt in any other hotel as we were looking around. Kim is most definitely a credit to the hotel! We carried on, had our menu tasting night there which was so beautiful, we will never forget it, the quality and amount of food was absolutely amazing... Something which carried onto the day.... The value for money...and quality was impeccable!! Our guests were stunned with the quality, everything was so tasty and plenty of food,.,, the staff even went round with seconds for our main course meats.!! Matthew looked after us so well throughout the meal, the attention to detail and quality of service was second to none... Lots of special touches that added to the day, we noted Matthew had his eye on the room, guests, timing everything was impeccable! ... The waiting staff are all unbelievably friendly....happy to help... We ran over a little late with the day... But nothing was a problem to this team!! The day was perfect, staff and venue, holds a special place now for me and my now husband... Cannot sing highly enough of this place!

We had our wedding here on the 18/09/2015. We had been to a weeding here a few years ago and feel in love the grounds and layout of hotel. After meeting with Kim we booked our weeding (at a great rate) we never looked back! Nothing we asked for was a problem for any member of staff. All our family

Hi ladies!! We hope everyone in Castle Dargan is keeping well. We are so sorry for the delay in writing this but it took us a while to finally accept that we need to get back to reality! We don't really know where to start. It's impossible for us to thank you all enough for the fantastic and amazing

wedding day that you helped us have at Castle Dargan. Kim from the minute we met with you, you were nothing but a pleasure to deal with. No question was too much and you were always there to solve any query I had and believe me I know how many of them I used to ask you!!!! You helped the lead up to the big day run some smoothly and Imelda from the moment you took over things just continued to run effortlessly. Everything ran to perfection on the 17th and guests were treated with such individual attention that its no wonder they are still talking about Castle Dargan. I was hoping you could pass on to Matthew our kindest regards and thanks for all he did for us both. The food was definitely without doubt the best wedding meal we have ever tasted and our guests were blown away by the standard. Guests are still raving about the "fantastic meal". Nobody wanted for anything and everything was timed to perfection. No glasses were ever empty and any requests were happily dealt with. Thank you so much for making this happen. Chrissie also was an absolute diamond! She blew everyone away with her welcome smile and kind words of greeting. Guests were made feel so special and she helped everyone including myself with anything that they wanted with a constant smile and nothing was ever too much. It was a pleasure to have chatted and spent time with Bríd the day before the wedding. She really understood the theme we were creating in the function room and helped add to this with her creative flair. Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts. We hope to get down to you guys before Christmas to thank you all in person. Thanks again for everything. Mr & Mrs Ormsby

hanging around and nothing missing. In addition all the guests couldn't get over the quality of the meals and they kept saying it was probably the best wedding meal they have ever had. The stakes were amazing and i don't know how the chef managed to cook them just perfect. For sure there was no shortage of food as well. Aidan loved his birthday surprise and the names on the plates was a brilliant touch. We were so happy that both of us nearly cried except that would have messed up my make up so no go. Thank you again and cant wait to come back for an anniversary dinner and spa night. All the best from the new Mr and Mrs Duggan i.e. Aidan and Kati.

The day before my wedding was spent in the icon spa at castle dargan. The three girls Sophia, Margaret and Ashling couldn't do more, they started the whole experience of to a fantastic start.
The food at the bar was tip top. Cooked to perfection.
The wedding day itself was amazing. Make up was

done by Margaret in icon spa. She is the best make up artist. (I get my make up done a lot) but have never looked better. And every bride wants to look her best. My guests were so amazed. They could believe the finished product. Good enough to put on the cat walk.
On to the reception. My mother had passed away and we had the Maltese flag. But it wasn't possible to put up on the flag pole but knowing how much it meant to me they made sure it had pride of place and it turned out to be one of the centre pieces for the photography.
The champagne reception was fantastic and they certainly gave us more than we could ever of expected.
The wedding breakfast was out of this world. Fantastic views. Fantastic silver service. And a added surprise that had everyone on their feet clapping (I can't say what it is as future brides and groom. It will spoil the surprise) but it was tremendous.
The wedding co ordination Kim was brilliant. My wedding went without a hitch
All my guest thought the setting was brilliant the service was fantastic. Would not have got that in England. Castle dargan has out Ireland on the map for all my guests and I won't be surprised that they all return. What can I say but simply the best.
Then after all this I got a free treatment as the bride from icon spa. Facial. Highly recommend.
Well done Margaret, Sophia and Ashling you all have lived up to the expectations that a top hotel should have.

Matthew in particular was just so helpful and friendly, and went out of his way to make sure all our guests were happy on both the day itself and on the Sunday.
There was just a lovely, relaxed feeling throughout the weekend, and I can't thank you all enough.
Conor and I will be writing a nice review on Trip Advisor, will try to get it done this weekend.
You are a brilliant wedding coordinator, and it's very clear why you won the wedding coordinator of the year!
Thanks again,

Firstly I would like to thank Kim and all of the staff at Castle Dargan that made our wedding day so special! They went the extra mile with everything and could not do enough for us before, during and after the wedding. The attention to detail was amazing and there was not anything that was

forgotten. With us living in London, I sent numerous emails, but nothing was a problem. We got married in May 2014 and the wedding day was so relaxed and they took all of the stress out of the day. The guests and ourselves thought the the staff were so polite and helpful and the food was excellent, you would not go hungry at a wedding here! Castle Dargan is beautiful and it was picture perfect for the wedding photos! I would highly recommend having a wedding here as you will not be disappointed!

We recently held our wedding reception at Castle Dargan and we can't speak highly enough of the venue and staff. From the day that we first visited the hotel we found the staff pleasant and helpful, especially Kim who helped us with planning our reception. We had a fairly large wedding and nothing

was too much trouble for the staff and the day went off perfectly. Many of the guests commented on the coach house reception room and the views from the bar and the function room. The quality of the food was second to none and the fillet steak was superb. We had quite a few bits and pieces of additional décor etc. for the venue and the staff were exceptionally helpful in making sure that all was in place on the day. We would specifically like to mention Kim, Matt and Christine for all their help throughout the wedding. Overall we would highly recommend Castle Dargan as a wedding venue that both looks the part and delivers in spades on service and food. Thanks again!

We got married in Castle Dargan on the 29th of August this year, and had an amazing time. The venue itself is fabulous, we had our civil ceremony there too and the room and the atmosphere was spectacular!

Everyone we encountered was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish during the wedding

Read More

planning process, the girls on reception had great patience and were so helpful with any queries ourselves or our guests had. The food at the tasting and on the day was beautiful, with brilliant attention to all the small details. Two months later, we're still getting told how good the food was and how excellent all the waiting staff were - I've lost count of how many of our guests said how friendly the waiting staff were and how they made sure every person at their table was happy with every single dish that went out.

From start to finish we had a brilliant experience with Castle Dargan, and Kim was always happy to help with our (many!) queries, no matter how big or small, thought of all the small things, and was a great source of reassurance that all was okay. She did as much as she could to ensure we'd have nothing to worry about on the day and to minimise our stress, I think I may have been one of the most relaxed brides ever. So we want to say a big thank you to all the staff, especially Chrissie, Stephen, Matthew and Kim; ye all made our wedding so perfect and ensured we had an amazing day - we'd do it all again tomorrow and wouldn't change a thing!

Thanks again from Debbie and Darragh

wedding co coordinator was ever so helpful both with her time and her non judgemental approach.I was a very nervous bride but she was very understanding and made me feel relaxed throughout my stay at castle dargan. Although the venue itself is not an actual castle as the name might suggest,it snuggly sits on the land of the old castle ruins which nowadays sports a very impressive golf course and pleasant peaceful walkways. It's so picturesque and relaxing. Castle dargan house on site is where the wedding party stayed. It was old world style and beautiful and very private. The staff at castle dargan were first class. Attentive and respectful in every way possible as nothing was too much for them. The coach room where we had our ceremony was every so homely with its piano and cosy open fire...the warmth of the open fire on a cold November evening made everyone feel welcome.it was beautiful. For the ceremony the room was dressed in black and white which was very elegant and tastefully done.the lighted candleabra and low lighting created an intimate personal space under the high celling. it was very special and our memories of the day will always be fondly cherished. After the ceremony the coach room was set up for a sit down dinner for all.it was idelic with crisp white tablecovers and chairs dressed in black and white with a display of lillies as cetrepieces. it was just what we dreamed of for our day. The meal itself was a little feast.portions were lovely and well presented.flavours were mouth watering.attention to detail at top table was special and service was spot on.we opted for a round table as our top table. it was positioned by the open fire and the ambience was memorable. I feel we could write a book on our experience this time last year at castle dargan! After the meal we had music for a few hours which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The next morning as our guests began making their way home we stayed behind just sitting in the coach room and reflected upon our experience at castle dargan...we did not want the magic to end!...it is a beautiful restful place and we are counting down the days now to Nov 8th our anniversary so we can relive the memories all over again and enjoy the picturesque setting of castle dargan!...an experience not to forget! We would highly recommend castle dargan as a wedding venue whether for a small intimate wedding or a larger wedding...one will not be disappointed!!!

We recently celebrated our wedding here and had a fabulous day! We cannot praise the hotel enough! The setting, staff and food are superb. Our guests were blown away by the quality and sheer quantity of food on offer and the attentiveness of the staff. We were a small wedding party, circa 50 people.

When initially looking for wedding venues, we had great difficulty finding a venue where our guests wouldn't feel lost. When we arrived at Castle Dargan and saw the setting and venue, especially the coach house, we knew we had found the venue for us. Kim listened very carefully to us, noting our every request and as a consequence the day went off without a hitch. We felt so relaxed. It was amazing. We'll definitely be returning for the anniversary!

Hi,
I had my wedding at your hotel resort on 26th August 2011. Hubby and I had a wonderful reception and were treated like royalty at all times. The venue is second to none with idylic surroundings and scenery. The staff are so professional and attention to detail is predominant at all times. We

have been to many weddings since, but no other venue can compare to Castle Dargan for the incredible and amazing value. We would recommend your resort above any similar contender and wish any potential "bride and groom to be" to have a fabulous experience like us. We congratulate you and thank you and wish you continued success.

Yours sincerely

Getting married for the second time is a pretty big decision & also when you are a mature couple. However our decision to choose Castle Dargan as our venue was "The Best" decision of all. From our first meeting with Kim "wedding coordinator " we knew our dream day was going to happen & on viewing

the different rooms where our service & reception would take place we again were 100% sure this was where we wee going to be married. Over the months leading up to our Big Day we had several meetings, e mails & telephone conversations with Kim & nothing was a problem.. Whatever our request she was more than happy to help. Sinead made sure all our guests accomadition was sorted & we also got to meet with Chef to discuss our menu this we found to be such an honour & he really put our minds at rest with regard to our choices. We had a wonderful evening at our menu tasting & we found it difficult to choose as all the dishes were amazing. As we got married at Christmas the decor in the hotel was just Magic , as was our wedding day, The Coach House where we had our service was so beautiful with black & red on our chairs, candlleabras everywhere, & amazing floral arrangements in abundance as I have already said we got married in a Winter Wonderland. The reception was fantastic wonderful food served by super efficient staff & the party continued into the early morning with the help of many more of the bar & hotel staff. Best Venue in Ireland to get married wish we could do it all again!

When I drove into Castle Dargan with my fiance we both just knew that this was where we wanted to get married! It has the old blended with the new to create a lovely feeling in the hotel.

On the 17th of April 2009, we finally got yo have our wedding reception there! We had an absolutely amazing

day and the staff were so so helpful behind the scenes it was lovely to hear about after. From start to finish we had a ball and our guests ranted and raved about it after. Sam (wedding coordinator) at the time listened to all my ideas and perfected them wonderfully on the day, cake display, top table flowers, favours, sweets I had organised and drinks reception!

We have Castle Dargan in a special place in our hearts and always will. We would like nothing more to go back for a weekend , child free, and enjoy all the amenities we just didn't have time for the day/night of the wedding.

It's a super super venue and I would highly recommend it to everyone.

We recently held our wedding in Castle Dargan and we could not be more happy that we choose there. From the moment we contacted Kim, we knew that this was the place for us. We found throughout the build up to our wedding that the staff were more that helpful to us in every way. On the day of our

wedding, the Coach House room exceeded our expectations.
The staff, who are brilliant, took on the responsibility of organizing our guests, which in turn allowed us to feel more relaxed.
The food, from the arrival reception and main meal to the evening buffet was outstanding. They catered for Everyone. They even prepared our sons favorite meal which wasn't even on the menu. The friendliness and diligence of everyone who works in Castle Dargan ensured that everyone was relaxed and enjoyed the day. We felt that touches by the staff made our day even more special. We can not express our gratitude or praise the staff enough for everything they did for us. We enjoyed our time there soo much we cancelled the few days we had booked in another hotel to stay in Castle Dargan.
The location of Castle Dargan alone is enough to win you over.
We are beyond happy we choose Castle Dargan to hold our wedding.
Kim, Matthew, Chrissie, everyone, there are too many to mention, thank you, you are legends.

We had our reception in Castle Dargan way back in 2007 & booked it when the place was still a building site (they were putting down the carpets in the bedrooms they day we were there to look round & the function room was just a shell!!) but there was something about the place that we didn't worry

about booking. We were taking people on an hours drive from the church so it needed to be good & it was! Everything from the drinks reception to the balcony looking over the golf course was fantastic and when it came to the meal things only got better. It was the first time any of our guests had seen a service like it - where the top table are served to a theme tune & plates placed & uncovered in perfect synchronisation (though it's been copied many times it's never quite been the same standard)

We had a wonderful day & people still comment on the hotel (view & how comfy the beds are!!) and the meal (service & quality)

We had our wedding in Castle Dargan in September 2014. We had a civil ceremony in the beautiful coach room, which was the perfect shape and size for our wedding. We then had a drinks reception in the lovely glass ceiling-ed room between the coach room and the bar. We were very lucky with the weather

which meant that our guests could enjoy drinks on the balcony of the bar overlooking the stunning views and Castle Dargan golf course. Our wedding dinner was delicious and served very promptly, which was very important to us. We had a BBQ the day after our wedding also and my husband's band played in the same room we had our drinks reception. The food was excellent again. a lot of the wedding guests took advantage of the good weather and played golf that afternoon. I stayed with my bridesmaids in one of the apartments the night before and we all got our hair and make-up done there.
The staff were simply fantastic in Castle Dargan! In particular Kim , the wedding coordinator and Matthew. No request was too big or strange. We had a lot of extra personal touches that we wanted to include in the wedding and they accommodated us to do this. From helping to put up and take down bunting, giant pinwheels and giant balloons to moving things around and arranging chairs we rented especially for the day! They were very patient, calm and nothing seemed to faze which made the whole experience a lot easier for us.
All our guests commented on what a wonderful wedding it was and that was definitely due to Castle Dargan - the location, the views, the lovely rooms, the amazing staff and delicious food.
We genuinely had the best weekend of our lives and would highly recommend it for anyone considering it as a wedding location, particularly as a venue for a civil ceremony.

We got married in Castle Dargan in august 2014. From the moment we viewed the hotel we loved it. During all the planning especially in the last months / weeks the staff couldn't do enough for us and always had time for us whenever we called. All the little extras we had planned were all carried out

with no problems at all. The food was amazing all weekend and there was nothing we could fault at all. The bedrooms are lovely and the reception is amazing. The views from there and the bar are beautiful.

I don't have the words to describe how unreal the whole castle dargan team are to brides and grooms.
The setting is stunning, beautifully decorated & very well maintained.

The staff, Kim, Matthew & Chrissie nearly bent over backwards to ensure our wedding day was exactly the way we wanted it.

On the day of the wedding they treated us like the only bride & groom to ever step into the hotel!!

The food is outstanding & extra portions offered to all guests!

For any bride & groom considering Castle Dargan you can't go wrong they have it all!

We were lucky enough to celebrate our Wedding day in March 2014 in Castle Dargan. From the moment we met with Kim Monaghan to discuss wedding options, we felt completely at ease and totally at home sitting by the fire with our Tea and cookies. We had visited a few other hotels previous to our visit

with CD, where heated negotiations were matched only by Jack Bauer. However, Kim took all our suggestions on board, laughed heartily at our ludicrous demands, and in the end a deal & date was struck!

The lead up was seemless, Kim or Chrissy were always on hand to help out with ironing out concerns or sorting beds for all our guests.. We pretty much hijacked the hotel the day before the wedding, dragging down all our clobber, sweet carts, table decor, photo booths etc and continued to run around the place like we owned it, much to the amusment of Kim! She was of course on hand with notepad and pen to take down all my idiosyncratic ideas for the day that was to follow!

When the day arrived, we were greeted with a smile and a glass of bubbles by Matt, who was our guardian angel for the day! All our guests were blown away by the drinks reception and for what seemed to be the never ending flow of prosecco! The meal was prompt and tasty, and again all our guests were more than pleased! Matt ensured that all our guests were catered for, including those who couldnt make the meal because of the parental pull and a colic baby! Tables were cleared away with speed to give way to the band and dancing! The day proceeded without a hiccup and we had the best day!

Hangovers follow happiness, and the day after was no exception (adrenaline my ass!)! In the mist of all the wedding plans we had completed neglected to discuss how to get all our extras home! Chrissy just waved us home, and contiuned to work surrounded by guitars, odd shoes, sweet jars and frames!

All in all, I honestly cannot recommend the Hotel and staff enough, they are bloody mighty!

Love

My husband and I held our wedding reception at Castle Dargan in April 2013 and we couldn't be happier with our decision. We live in Sydney and I am originally from Sligo and my husband from Kildare so we wanted to get married close to home. I had never been to Castle Dargan but on the strength of

friend's and family's recommendations we booked it. The Award winning wedding coordinator Kim Monaghan was a pleasure to deal with and she made the entire experience stress-free for us which was just what we needed given we were trying to organise the wedding from another country, she responded promptly to all our queries and went above and beyond the scope of her role. Most of our guests stayed at Castle Dargan over the wedding weekend and they all spoke so highly of the accommodation and hospitality they received from all the staff throughout their stay. The wedding day itself went perfectly and we have Kim and all the rest of the Castle Dargan staff to thank for that. We honestly could not have asked for more from the weekend - everyone at Castle Dargan went above and beyond for us and we felt extremely special all weekend, it was 5 star service. We stayed in Castle Dargan House which was gorgeous and the rose petals and candles in our room on our wedding night was a lovely touch. It is a beautiful setting for a wedding, the grounds are fantastic for wedding photos and even if it rains on the day there are opportunities for great shots indoors in Castle Dargan House. The food at the reception was amazing, people were having second serves and the atmosphere was so friendly and inviting. We had a BBQ the day after the wedding and the food at this was also delicious and plentiful. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this fantastic hotel and wedding venue to anyone thinking of booking it. You would struggle to find somewhere more accommodating and helpful and in such a lovely setting. We can't wait to visit again for dinner next time we are back in beautiful Sligo.

We had our wedding in Castle Dargan in March 2014 and I have nothing but great things to say about our whole experience. From the very moment that we set foot in Castle Dargan we knew it was the venue for our wedding Day. From the views from the ballroom windows to the fantastic food and wine the

whole experience was excellent. We had so much fun planning our day with Kim Monaghan who is the event manager there. She was amazing and made sure everything was at the high standard we expected.
A few weeks before our wedding day my dad died very suddenly and as you can imagine your wedding takes on a whole different meaning to what you had planned. Our family’s wanted us to go ahead with the wedding and it was then that Kim and all the staff at Castle Dargan came into their own. For us little details no longer were important but Kim being the true professional that she is made sure that every single little thing was perfect on the day. They organised sweet tables, cake tables, helped blow up musical instruments for later in the evening, table plans were sorted, every single little detail was covered. They went out of their way to ensure every person at our wedding had an experience that was unforgettable. The food was fantastic and the amount of people who commented afterwards about the unbelievable steaks was truly a testament to the fantastic chef! We all remembered dad on the day and spoke so lovingly of him that it felt like he was there with us.
Castle Dargan is a hidden gem and they really helped make our wedding day one that we will never forget for the rest of our lives. Thank you again to all.

We had many friends stay at Castle Dargan over the wedding weekend and they all spoke so highly of the accommodation and hospitality they received from all the staff throughout their stay. Some were able to take advantage of the deals they have from time to time which included dinner one night and therefore made their break great value for money. The wedding day itself went perfectly and we have Kim, Matthew and all the rest of the Castle Dargan staff to thank for that. We honestly could not have asked for more - everyone at Castle Dargan went above and beyond for us and we felt so special all day.
