From our very first visit Rachael and team were so nice and friendly. We were presented with something to eat and drink as we came straight from work for the majority of the meetings which was a lovely touch. Anything we asked for was no problem at all. The day went so well and it was thanks to the

Clontarf exceeding all of my expectations. We had such a wonderful experience and are thrilled with how it turned out. The food and servers were both awesome. Highly recommend this venue and the great hall and Viking suite. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special.

We were thrilled to bits with the staff at Clontarf Castle. Our wedding day was amazing. The food was exquisite. We didnt need much decorations, the hotel is so beautiful already. We had our ceremony there too and had we only had 70 guests so we didn't go for the function room but had our meal in

the restaurant and then down to the Indigo Lounge so there was lots of variety. All our guests had a brilliant day even those who don't normally like weddings, for many it was the best wedding they were ever at and the photos taken in the castle are fab.

My husband+I strongly recommend Clontarf Castle to any couples looking for a wedding venue. Our experience started off with Ciara showing us around, giving us some history+showing us our options in terms of menus+rooms we could use. We knew after that meeting with Ciara that we wanted our wedding at

this place. We were then introduced to Rachael who was our wedding co-ordinator. Rachel was absolutely amazing to deal with, nothing was ever any trouble for her+she took so much stress out of it with her organisation skills+giving us advise that we can genuinly say that organising our wedding was so stress free+so enjoyable. Sarah was also incredible to deal with+we found her advise+experience was so valuable too. We cant recomnend this venue enough+we had a thoroughly amazing day. Thanks to all the 3 girls for your professionalisn, help+support+thanks for decorating our room so beautifully as well :)

Clontarf Castle is a beautiful venue, and we fell in love with it from the moment we entered. Both the inside and the outside are really impressive. The food was delicious and the wedding co-ordinator Rachael was fantastic. Everything was well handled and always dealt with in a professional way. The

staff in every area, the bar, reception, and in the hall itself were very attentive. The negatives were very few. We got married in August on a hot day and we found the main function room (The Great Hall) to be extremely hot. The air conditioning wasn't adequate. The only other negative was the food tasting. This takes place on a weekday which was very disappointing. Other hotels offer a tasting on the weekend where you can relax and enjoy some wine if wanted. As my husband had work that day, and work the next day, we didn't feel like it was as enjoyable as it could have been. Other hotels offer a night's stay on the day of your tasting, and this would have been greatly appreciated. This was the most disappointing thing as we felt it could have been more special for us, and we felt that it wouldn't have caused much hassle or stress to the hotel to organise. In all, we were really glad we chose Clontarf Castle as our wedding venue, and I would recommend it to other newly engaged couples!

We had a fantastic wedding day at Clontarf Castle, our food and service were excellent, the room was perfect although a little hot. Rachel was with us every step of the way advising and supporting us, and although she couldn't be there on our special day she left us in very capable hands.
on Wed, 10th of October, 2018
Rachael Clarke was particularly good to deal with. She made our preparation as easy as possible and we felt we were in safe hands. The other staff were also excellent and lots of guests commented on the quality of food and service.
on Wed, 10th of October, 2018
Can't praise Clontarf Castle highly enough!! The wedding planner Rachel Clarke and her team are magnificent! All angles were covered. Rachel's pre-wedding checklist is comprehensive so even if you've forgotten something, she hasn't! The team are very flexible in accommodating any other requests

outside the norm and on the day itself they discretely keep everyone honest from arrival through to the end of the night. A great event is 90% planning, 10% execution and with Clontarf Castle it's flawless. Our wedding was in the Great Hall having 174 guests, with the bar in the room. The hall size was just perfect, the food was fabulous and served hot to every guest. The service team were excellent and were very engaging with the guests and the venue itself is so full of character it's easy to forgot you're only a stone throw away from the city centre. It really was our perfect day.
on Wed, 10th of October, 2018
It was an absolute fairy-tale come true. Everything went absolutely perfect. Couldn't be happier with the service received by the staff

We had our wedding in the Tower Suite in Clontarf Castle. From start to finish the Wedding Coordinator and staff at the hotel could not help enough. Clontarf Castle is an amazing venue with a lovely castle feel but with a modern twist. Food was amazing and certainly excellent value for money. From

start to finish the hotel and its staff made us feel so welcome. Despite being a small wedding party, nothing was too much trouble. The attention to detail was superb and the hotel provides amazing extras no matter what size wedding party is being catered for. Clontarf Castle has one wedding a day policy so our wedding was definitely their focus of the day. We had an amazing day in Clontarf castle. Our guests were extremely impressed and delighted with the hotel's rooms and attention to their needs also. We can not recommend Clontarf castle and their wedding Coordinator Rachel enough. No matter the size of the wedding or which of their 3 superb venues you choose you will be made feel so important.

Hi, just wanted to say that from the moment we first walked into Clontarf castle we got this lovely feeling about this marvellous special hotel and when we were greeted by Rachael Clarke the hotels wedding coordinator we were hooked. Her professional, warm, caring, friendly personality won us over

Read More

and for this we are forever grateful. She was so helpful in every meeting up to the big day and on the day, and after our meetings, we were left reassured that all was in control and 100% at ease in her company. Rachel and Jason ( general manager ) and the friendly team in the castle couldn't have been better, we are again chuffed we chose Clontarf castle for our special day. Jason is such a gentleman and his attention to detail is obvious why he is in charge . Overall the hotel experience was outstanding , the room on the day was beautiful , the bar staff, the management, the service and of course the fabulous food which is still being talked about, all the surprises on the day from the staff from the photos of us arriving printed onto the menus an hour later, these little things really made the day and all the guests are still saying they had the best wedding. Can't recommend this fantastic venue and amazing staff enough, want to do it all again. Thanks for everything, Yours gratefully Brendan and Colm.

staying.

The wedding venue and hotel itself is stylish and elegant but with a very welcoming environment from the moment you arrive. The food was excellent and the guests were very complimentary on the menu. The hotel catered for all dietary requirements to a very high standard. We can not recommend Rachel and her team and also Clontarf castle and all their staff for making our wedding stay so special.
on Wed, 13th of June, 2018
Would highly recommend Clontarf Castle to any couple. Clontarf is perfect for anyone looking for a classy venue with top class food and service in close proximity to Dublin, especially for any couples looking to cater for a large amount of guests. The welcome we received when initially visiting

Clontarf Castle was second to none. As we discussed the finer details it was immediately clear to us that the castle were extremely flexible and would do whatever they could to create the perfect day! Needless to say this was borne out on the day day itself! Everything went without a hitch and we could really relax and enjoy the occasion in the beautiful surrounds of the castle. Our heartfelt thanks to Rachael and all the team for exceeding our high expectations in every department!

Absolutely perfect, the wedding team were a amazing everything went a without a hitch couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. All our queries were answered promptly, the food was some of the best I've had would love to do it all over again!

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 recommend to any future bride. Marianne's warmth and rapport made it very easy to deal with her. She was extremely helpful, organised and flexible, most accommodating and displayed very good attention to detail. She was there when we needed her and promptly responded to any queries we had. The warmth extended by Marianne, and the rest of the staff, to my husband and I was so much appreciated. We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day at Clontarf Castle Hotel and would highly recommend it as an ideal wedding venue.

The wedding coordinator/planner Rachael Clark at clontraf castle was a credit to the hotel ... every last thing to every last minute she was on it ..... from the meal tasting to the first dance the hotel was so professional.... they made our dream day .

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.

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

Read More

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 effort that all the staff members put into making our day a fairytale is beyond words. If I could do it all again I would not change a thing! From the food and being responsive to dietary issues, to the room and then the wedding suite it was just fabulous! Thank you Clontarf Castle for all that you did for my husband and I and for truly making it a day that we will never forget!
on Wed, 15th of November, 2017
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 Clontarf Castle enough. Great Experience!

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!

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

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 evening food was also delicious and so plentiful. Everyone commented on what a fantastic venue it was and so many people had never been to the castle before and couldn't believe how gorgeous the interior was. As we had a small wedding we have the financial flexibility to choose the Majestic dining package. This worked out really well for us as we didn't have to worry about adding on extra costs. The honeymoon suite was so fab we were sad to leave it the next day. I can't wait to go back and enjoy a relaxing stay there again. I would highly recommend it. I have also had my Christmas party in the great hall and again the food and the service was excellent for such a large venue. Thanks again Clontarf!

Beautiful venue, beautiful food. Outstanding staff at all levels, special thank you to Rachel - our wedding planner and all waiting staff on the night, everyone was very friendly and responsive. Not the cheapest but worth every penny
on Thu, 2nd of 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

Read More

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 a wedding venue and accommodation more. Nothing was too much trouble for Rachael and the rest of the staff. They are such a genuine group of people and I really felt like they went the extra mile for us in all our requests....which I won't lie we had quite a few....

Rachael was so helpful, patient and on the ball with everything. Seeing everything come together on the day was actually quite emotional and I felt like Rachael had really got me and become part of the family. Soppy I know, but given the intimacy of the celebrations she was really a part of it and truthfully we can't thank Rachael and the staff enough. The staff contributed so much on the day and we felt they cared about us as a couple and our families and guest.

The grounds themselves are gorgeous, rooms very comfortable and food throughout wonderful. There is also so much history and culture there, and it's a super bonus for anyone staying. We actually stayed for a number of days at Clontarf Castle and were quite sad leaving! I can't recommend Clontarf Castle highly enough and look forward to my next visit.

Perfect venue for a wedding, Clontarf Castle has everything you need for your ceremony & reception. The staff were amazing & really made sure everything went perfectly. I would definitely reccommend this hotel for a wedding.

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 service, and the wedding presentation. A number of my family and friends stayed at the hotel in the lead up to the wedding. Everyone kept telling us how much fun they had. Since many of our guests were also close by in Dublin, we stayed late in the residents bar and the hotel was great about letting us enjoy some late night drinks and chat. The wedding suite was also exceptional. The room has a spectacular view of the city and is simply stunning for getting ready. It makes you feel like it is a truly special day. The staff provided us with sandwiches and prosecco for bridal party preparations and another bottle of prosecco for when we returned after the wedding. The hotel also gave us a beautiful photo of the hotel and us to take with us as a gift. It was above and beyond. For me, however, it was even before the wedding started that I decided we made the perfect choice. Planning a wedding can be overwhelming, but I cannot say enough how Rachael helped make it seem easy. Anything we wanted to do, she was so supportive. Just before the ceremony there was a bit of confusion between myself and the humanist celebrant about the family’s entrance to the ceremony. Rachael noticed that I was getting a little nervous as it was all happening right before I was to walk down the aisle. Right away she stopped everything and

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! If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

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. Every girls dream is to get married in a castle.

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..

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

Read More

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 manager David joining us at our menu tasting to see how we were getting on, to the bar manager popping by to assist with wine choices, from Leanne in reservations to helping sort all the rooms, to the chef who cooked our menu tasting sitting down with us after to run through our choices...it was all the little extras that made it so special & really felt like we tailored the day just as we wanted it.
On the wedding day itself the food was just amazing. You can forget 'standard hotel wedding food' , it was contemporary, fresh & imaginative and everyone thought so. We really wanted to actually eat & enjoy our wedding meal and we definitely did! Plates were scraped clean!
I cannot think of nicer place to have had our wedding, and my only regret is that it's over....It's the little touches that make it special and Clontarf castle has so many of those...when we arrived on the wedding day Amanda & the function manager Barak took a photo of us getting out of the wedding car....and 2 hours later at our meal that photo appeared in our menus on the tables ! A gorgeous touch & complete surprise to us.
We cannot thank you all enough for giving us such a special wedding weekend...it is a gem of a venue & I really don't think we would have had as special a day anywhere else.

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

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 everyone and all the bridal party ended up on the stage doing the can-can and singing New York New York.
We had a band and a then a dj, during the evening festivities we had Irish dancers perform, also a friend of mine who is a professional Irish dancer also gave us a jig too. I didn't have any of the evening food as I was off about with people, but I know my guests did and we're impressed.
We went to the residence bar afterwards and we're there till the wee hours of the morning.
My only one teeny issue was that I didn't get to cut the cake, there was a misunderstanding and the woman working that day thought we had done the cutting the cake thing so the cake was cut up by the hotel before we had a chance to, very minor, and didn't put a dampener on my day at all. But was the only incy negative of the whole day, everything else was wonderful.

Friends and family to this day still comment on the food at our wedding ! The most frequent line being ' I've been to many weddings but the food at yours was top notch ' !

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 etc for all of our guests so she came up with our buffet menu..I could not believe it! After not even an hour we had it mostly planned out. Excitement overload! We got married on the 17th of August 2012.From the moment we got out of the car everything was perfect.Our guests were taken into the viking bar for drinks and sandwiches while we got our photos done and checked out the function room.I could not believe how beautiful it all looked.From the table decorations to how our cake was presented and the romantic setting with all of the candles leading us to the room.Magical! The buffet was a huge hit with plenty for everyone and very well controlled by the amazing staff that so brilliantly waited on us hand and foot and not only made our experience one to remember but our friend and family also.Our suit was incredible..didn't want to leave it haha! And our breakfast was brought to us by a lovely man who firstly wished us congratulations before laying it all out for us.I cannot recommend Clontarf Castle enough and only wish we could do it all again. We will be 4 years married on the 17th of this month and 2 nights here would be absolutely amazing for us,a trip down memory lane.Having our wedding in Clontarf Castle was so special for us.. Me in particular and I'm sure you will continue to make people's dreams come true and make so many amazing memories ❤❤

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 and kind. The hairdresser, make up artist and photographer were escorted up to the bridal suite and we were all made ver comfortable. I had left some presents for different family members that night for the dinner and they were all allocated to the right people which made the whole day even more special. We arrived back from the church and had drinks in the bar followed by having our pictures taken and then proceeded to the dinner. The evening was filled with laughter, irish dancing and so much joy that we cant thank you enough for all you did for us to make this day soo special :)

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 important to them & you get that feeling.
Our families & friends enjoyed our wedding & still talk about it 6months later. They all couldn't believe how every detail was so personal & fantastic. The food, drinks & the service was out of this world on the day & also at our post wedding bbq we had the next day. We wanted to celebrate in style & Clontarf Castle made that happen. We met with the head chief & the bbq chief & they went through every detail with us. The options & choices available to us nothing was too much trouble. They thought of things I didn't & the day could not have gone any better. Everything went off perfectly & they were amazing I would love to do it all again. The staff were so friendly to all our guests & smiled throughout the day. Plenty of food etc to go around & our guests felt they were at the wedding of the decade, they've never had such a amazing day out before & we agree. The drinks reception was perfect, the Great Hall, were our meal was a banquet fit for a king. Décor was so stunning & stylist it was everything I dreamed of & more. The venue as a whole is beautiful & the bedrooms are fantastic, the breakfast the next day was brilliant plenty to go around. We had such high expectations for our day & they delivered on everything & more. They truly are the best at what they do I will cherish my wedding day at Clontarf Castle forever.

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 a wedding and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who is thinking of getting married there.

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 imagined.

Big group photo time and a few others... Great photo opportunities in and around the castle no matter what your taste is.

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

Read More

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 weeks before our wedding who we booked a year in advance, Clontarf sorted us out ,even small issues of fussy eaters and finding out two days before some of your guests have intolerances to the food you chose ,the menu was altered for them. These things happen everyone but not every hotel has the contacts or staff who go to that extra length to help you out. As I said before the staff made our day by being so helpful and not because the had to but because they wanted to . All our problems were fixed by just a simple phone call to the hotel. The day itself was a day I will never forget , it was better than I ever could have dreamed of. We arrived to a red carpet and friendly staff wishing us well followed by champagne for the two of us after the ceremony. The ceremony itself was decorated by beautiful flowers and candles we chose the Norman Suite the smallest room but the work and detailed and arrangement put into the room could not be faulted. It simply looked stunning.We then had the opportunity to capture amazing photos of the picturesque views of the Castle inside and outside, there are plenty of photographic opportunities to make your album beautiful and different from everyone else created by the backdrops in this Castle. We then went on to the dinner which I have to say was the best food I've ever had! I have never seen so may empty plates on the tables everyone loved the food. The waiters were so nice and we're really helpful in making the dinner go smoothly.They kindly offered to make up a dinner and mash it up for our 2 yr old which I never thought of doing, they even came back around with second helpings of meat and veg for guests who wanted more, I've never been to a hotel and being offered more beef and as much as we wanted, I had very happy guests! A lovely personal touch that the hotel had organised was a picture of the two of us on the menus ,which they had captured earlier that day. Then onto the evening we went on into the Indigo Lounge it's a really funky modern room to have your evening reception. Everything went perfect and still to this day I not only have people commenting on how they were the best sliders they have ever had at the evening reception you have to have the mini hamburgers it's a must! But also people are still commenting on how amazing the hotel and staff were on the day . I had never been to this hotel before our wedding but I know I will be going back plenty of times in our future. Everytime I hear Clontarf being mentioned I am filled with lovely warm happy memories it truly was the best day of our lives we could not recommend this hotel enough.!!!!!!!

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 'to do' list for the wedding, the hotel reception was the one thing I never worried about and had to think very little about. From meeting Jason and Amanda I knew it was in the hands of professionals and they did not prove me wrong.

All the staff were warm and welcoming and went out of their way, behind the scenes, to make our day run smoothly and special. The dining service and food was excellent. All my guests commented on how great the meal was. In particular, the sirloin which was lean and cooked perfectly and how generous it was in terms of second helpings and the beautifully presented and tasty raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake! Every menu even had a photo of us printed on it from when we arrived just two hours earlier. Another lovely personal touch and a great shot!

The entire day was just so personalised and we certainly felt like king and queen of the castle! Great memories.

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 drinks reception in one of the galleries and were told that there wouldn't be a lot of traffic from the hotel through there but there were people passing through with luggage etc which was a little distracting but the space was perfect for the small intimate gathering we were having! People say I'm a perfectionist and there were a few little things missing or in the wrong place but once it was mentioned to a staff member it was rectified almost immediately! Several managers came to check on how the day was going and this was appreciated on the day! Everyone that attended our wedding complimented the food! We had bar food in the restaurant and it was amazing!! Just what we asked for and all steaks were cooked just the way they wanted!! Our bridal suite was also amazing!! And we were even left a little gift from the hotel which was a welcome surprise! Overall I would recommend you view Clontarf Castle Hotel as your possible wedding venue! There are lots of fabulous places to take photos everywhere you look! Our wedding was quite a small wedding but we still felt that we got VIP treatment! Thank you to everyone involved!

My husband and I got married in Clontarf Castle on 31st of July 2014. The whole day was nothing short of magical. From the moment we stepped inside clontarf castle and met the amazing wedding coordinators we knew it was the place for us! I stayed in the castle the night before my wedding and got

ready in the bridal suite on the morning of the wedding. My three bridesmaids, my Mum and I were treated like queens! We got breakfast delivered to our room and also the wedding coordinator brought us up some CHAMPAGNE! What an amazing start to the day! We had our ceremony in the local church. When we arrived back to the castle our drinks reception was in full swing with prosecco for everyone or a selection of beers (we had paid a bit extra to have beers for guests that wanted them!) We had an afternoon tea theme for our wedding so we had tea and cupcakes at the drinks reception also. The great hall was decorated with teacups and teapots for our afternoon tea theme. It looked AMAZING! I hired a company called Lullabelle to come and decorate the banquet hall. The flowers came from clontarf florists and looked so delicate in the centerpieces on the tables-exactly what we wanted! Our wedding meal was exceptional! Our guests still rave about the food. Wine was flowing throughout the meal and the speeches! When it came to cutting the cake we were presented with a SWORD to cut it with!! This added to the magical element of the whole day. We truly were treated like royalty for the day- exactly what we wanted on the day of our wedding. We have booked a couple of events there since our wedding. My husband organized a surprise afternoon tea event for my 30th birthday in Clontarf castle. We also hope to have our baby daughters christening there in the new year. The staff and atmosphere of Clontarf castle is exceptional and I would definitely recommend it as a venue for a wedding or any other special event. You are guaranteed to get treated like royalty whatever the occasion!

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.

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.

The food was AMAZING! I have never had wedding food so delicious. We had a few guests with specific dietary requirements and even one fussy eater who was catered for. We are so excited to go back to the restaurant next year for our anniversary meal!

The day itself was just fantastic, we were greeted at the door on arrival with a delicious cocktail and a warm welcome and from there we couldn't believe just how smoothly everything went.

I would definitely recommend this beautiful venue for an amazing day.

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 imagined.

Big group photo time and a few others... Great photo opportunities in and around the castle no matter what your taste is.

Meal:
Fareinheit grill, up the beautiful staircase with the King and Queens thrones. We were announced into the room and it was just great

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!). I am American and the staff at Clontarf Castle hotel was there for me working through the details every step of the way. They were honestly the most wonderful group of people and made my week long stay and enjoyable experience. I left feeling like I had a true family!
