Clontarf Hospital was a great venue for our wedding, from the staff to the food we couldn’t have asked for any more. This venue is extra special at Christmas.

We were so delighted with the hospitality we received not only on our wedding day but on every visit prior. We booked Clontarf based on the initial impression we received at the wedding showcase and the genuine interest staff had in their job and our wedding. We are delighted to say that this remained the case all the way up to and even now after our wedding. What a fantastic hotel venue & staff. The beauty of the castle tells it's own tale but the staff really make you feel like King & Queen of the Castle.

We recently had the pleasure of getting married in Clontarf Castle. I felt compelled to write this review to convey my absolute gratitude to Clontarf Castle for how they conducted our wedding. We had an unusual small intimate celebration. Despite the small size of our party Clontarf Castle couldn't have been more accommodating, offering us numerous options in terms of rooms and dining. They also met with us many times in advance, advising us on every aspect of the wedding, offering suggestions in terms of suppliers and a celebrant. Our ceremony was carried out in the Tower Suite which is a beautiful intimate room that retains its historical roots. On the day of our wedding they went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations by overseeing all aspects of our ceremony including being our DJ. The icing on the cake was a lovely surprise in terms of they had taken a photo of us directly after the ceremony and printed it off our menus in the Fahrenheit restaurant, such a thoughtful detail in addition to a beautiful gift they gave us that we will cherish forever. The venue itself needs no explanation, authentic, stunning and steeped in history and the food was second to none. All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day. Whether you are having a large wedding or a small wedding like ours I would recommend Clontarf Castle to all. A special thanks is extended to our wedding co ordinator Deborah who was so kind, professional and helpful. Kind Regards, Ruth and Aneurin Moorthy.

We had a small wedding of 40 people. Marianne was our contact with the hotel. She was amazing, nothing was too much trouble for her. She was a calming voice when It got closer to the date and the stress was starting to kick in. We organised the wedding in 4 months. Food and wine was amazing. The Viking suite was perfect and was beautifully decorated. The staff know what they are doing so just let them help you out and trust that they will provide you both along with your guests an amazing day for everyone to remember. Plus the bridal suite was amazing with some lovely touches to it. PG of course! We would love to be doing it again in that beautiful setting in the heart of Dublin. You won’t regret it.

Our experience with Clontarf Castle was nothing short of extraordinary, start to finish. Deborah has been our point of liaison with the Castle and our wedding coordinator, and honestly I believe she secretly is the Castle’s Fairy, as she was absolutely magical throughout the process. We had Clontarf Hotel on our shortlist of wedding venues, and despite it being pricier than our other options, we felt that the location and service level provided was worth the extra cost. Needless to say it was the best decision we made for our wedding. We had initially planned to have a simple wedding in the Registrar’s office with only a couple of witnesses, but this very quickly escalated to it being a full-on medium sized wedding. Time was short and I am sure we couldn’t have pulled it without the help of the extraordinary staff at the Castle, under Deborah’s careful guidance and supervision. We have opted for the Viking Suite, as it was more appropriate for our wedding size (in around 70pax). Despite it being smaller than the main hall, it has a certain je ne sais quoi about it, a castle feel to it that we absolute loved. The wallpaper, the candelabras, the nice silver Chiavari chairs all made the venue look very elegant without it feeling overcrowded. We’ve met with Deborah several times since the 21st of May since we got in touch with the venue and have exchanged hundreds of e-mails and phone calls in between. With exactly 4 months to go to our wedding, needless to say I was sending chaotic e-mails left, right and centre and all of them have most gracefully been replied to by Deborah, who always managed to make sense out my chaos. What I really loved about the service provided is that I never felt overwhelmed by millions of questions about how we want things to be. Instead, during our meetings, Deborah tried to get a feel of what we like and what we don’t, made suggestions, recommended suppliers where needed, and then filled in the gaps herself. You really can’t put a price on this. Due to personal circumstances, we had really limited amount of time to allocate to wedding planning and since we didn’t have a wedding planer per se, a lot of it was looked after by the hotel. From the preparation of the hall for the civil ceremony (humanist ceremony which was an absolute tear jerker – highly recommend to those who are not big into religious ceremonies or what a bit more than a simple ceremony at the registrar’s office) to the VERY quick turnaround of the same hall for the party, everything was looked after by the hotel. I literally dropped a box filled of props and different items I wanted displayed for the wedding at 4AM on the morning of the wedding with no advice as to what goes where and when I walked into the hall before the guests were called to dinner, my jaw dropped. Absolutely everything was beautifully displayed and the hall looked like a million bucks. Deborah liaised with all the suppliers and ensured everything is set-up on time so that took so much pressure off us. The food was wonderful, and despite what we thought in the beginning more than enough. The service throughout the dinner was flawless and just complimented the look and feel of the hotel, with all the staff looking very neat and floating around the hall to make sure guests are tended to without getting in the way. Ash was our contact for the evening / night and he was an absolute sweetheart. From stepping in when we realised we had not had time to put together a speech, to ensuring everything goes well with the food, the first dance, the cake cutting, etc., we are so very grateful to have had them with us on the night. Both Deborah and Ash were very calm and organised, and that helped us immensely in stressful moments as we felt that they have everything under control. The Bridal suite for the night was hands down the most beautiful room we’ve ever stayed in. With a balcony looking over the area, it displayed a breathtaking view both day and night and it the absolute best location for wedding preparations photos. The room was spacious, very well equipped with anything you might need and the bed was just a fluffy cloud you could literally sink in and never want to leave. The look and feel of the room was vintage, as you’d expect in such a hotel, but with all the modern amenities you’d need. Champagne breakfast the morning after was just the perfect way to end such an amazing experience. I really could go on and on about the great experience we’ve had with the hotel, about Deborah and Ash and all the staff in the background that made all this possible, but I suppose it’s enough to just stay there for the night and / or go in for an afternoon tea to get a flavour of what they have to offer. We are already looking into booking our next stay here and will always return here for a little reminder of our fairytale wedding… Thank you everyone for making our wedding truly wonderful and being so very flexible with our needs and demands, we couldn’t be happier! Lots of love and gratitude, Catalina & Sami

We knew Clontarf Castle was the venue for us once we booked in for an afternoon tea there. The attention to detail and the friendly manner service was given was a huge factor- and also the deliciousness of the food! We went all out and sure, at times we worried we were spending too much money to be honest. But you know what, it was SO worth it. We spoiled our guests rotten and it was truly fabulous, what was delivered. The worry was quickly converted into utter confidence. We were shown flexibility whenever we needed to change something. It seemed like nothing was too much trouble. The food was incredible- many guests said it was the best wedding they had been at. (Side note- what an amazing breakfast in that place! Outstanding). The service was excellent- and consistent. We had different bits of the wedding all over the castle and the staff were always warm, welcoming and accommodating. The staff in the Knight’s Bar and Fahrenheit are a credit to the place. One woman called Helena was really wonderful with my son, and as a stressed parent trying to keep all the plates spinning, it really meant so much to me. Deborah was our wedding coordinator and she did a fantastic job. She always got back to me and if she was away, Ciara did. Communication was top notch. I’m sure management at Clontarf know what great staff they have and how valuable they are! Another thing I was very happy with was the decorating of the reception room and how Deborah handled all my little handmade bits and admittedly sometimes vague instructions. What a wonderful, magical setting. Just a note too about the suite we were given on the night... wow wow wow! The view over Dublin city and the mountains in the distance... living in Dublin, I sometimes forget how beautiful it all can be. Looking out over the lichen spattered castle walls to the bay beyond was something very special indeed. If you are undecided about booking this venue, I would not hesitate to do so. Do it! You won’t regret it.

The wedding service provided was amazing and all the staff involved were incredible they tendered to our every need. The only suggestion would be is to tell the couple during the meal that they had to stay seated for the meal to be served because this made us run behind. However it is a stunning venue and the stuff were so accepted of the wedding we had planned x

Absolutely amazing venue and staff went above and beyond. It was a small wedding of 20 yet we could have had 200 guests for the treatment we received.Our wedding co ordinators Rachel and Deborah were so easy to work with. The bride and groom were coming from Australia and so all of the arrangements were made before they arrived. We had a lot of surprises in place for them and the girls were brilliant in helping us to put it all in place. Couldnt reccomend them highly enough.

From the start the staff went above and beyond to help in any way they could. We only had 7 months to plan our wedding with no clue what we were doing but Rachel and Deborah had us covered. The whole day went so smoothly and they couldn't have done anything more for us. The food and wine were lovely and with the package we went for there was more then enough. Only suggestion I would have for any couple, definitely go for the portable bar in the room (we didn't and most guest were outside the room for the evening) One downfall was the residents bar, guests were told to leave (it was late but we were told that it would be open as long as there were people in it) The day really was fantastic and the staff were incredible. Would highly recommend.

We had some initial issues with Clontarf Castle which we tried to address far in advance of the wedding - it came to a head two weeks before the wedding & from that moment onwards they were amazing. The day itself was incredible and the staff and management of Clontarf could not do enough for us, I would almost say the ease and professionalism of the last two weeks would make up for the previous 12 months. However I think it is important to rate the service as a whole and 2 weeks out of 52 is a small percentage. That is why I rated the professionalism low and why I wouldn’t not recommend.

Without her support it wouldn't be possible to create the wedding of our dream while planning it from Dubai. Amazing reception and fantastic food at the celebration.

We were delighted to celebrate our wedding at Clontarf Castle on the 08.08.18. From the moment we met our wedding coordinater Rachael Clarke back in April we know our wedding day was in good hands. I cannot say enough about Clontarf Castle, the professional service that we received was second to none. On such a very special day we knew that Clontarf Castle would look after everything and they did. The whole ambience of the castle added to the whole day. Thanks for all you did for us on our day.

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!

From the very first moment we arrived to view clontarf castle, we were made to feel welcome, at home and truly special. We were seated in a private seating area and provided with a small token goody bag and served a complimentary cheese board with tea / coffee . No other 4 or 5 star venue we went to view provided such a welcome reception. We had particular dietary requirements (halal), and everything we requested was fully facilitated. Other venues that we had viewed had not been as facilitating. This cemented Clontarf Castle as the wedding venue for us! The wedding co-ordinater Rachael Clarke was extremely professional and accommodating and I would highly recommend her for anyone planning their special day. Anything that I requested was accommodated and any problems I had, Rachael had ideas to help me solve. On our wedding day, Rachael and the team at Clontarf Castle added many small touches and surprises to make the day so special. Rachael took a picture of my husband and myself when we first emerged in our wedding attire and printed it on each of the dinner menus which was such a lovely surprise! She was on hand to fix the back of my dress when we first greeted the guests at the hotel (I had not requested her to do so, but it was another way she had shown her attention to detail and care). When we arrived at the wedding suite at the end of the night, there was a surprise keepsake that the hotel prepared that was very thoughtful and sweet! A very big thank you to Rachael and the team at Clontarf for a very special day.

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 :)

The day and the reception were great, but there were a few parts that could have been better. Our cake was lost due to miscommunication. There was a solution for this mishap, but it would have been nice to have the cake on our wedding day. Also, the room of the ceremony itself was very hot. Granted, it was in the middle of the heat wave, but nothing was done to alleviate the temperature in the room. The positives- the food is amazing. The venue is gorgeous. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.

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.

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!

Our wedding at the Clontarf Castle Hotel was fantastic from the first meeting with Rachel the Castle wedding organizer to the day its self. Everyone did all they could to help and facilitate us in achieving our dream. Including working with our children's entertainer so that the children amongst our guest were safe and happy. The wedding decorators that we bought in to add to the already fantastic decore of Clontarf Castle. The evening entertainers we had were all contacted and their needs met. Our bedrooms were fantastic catering for the youngest child to the groom's mother who was 92 years old. On the night of the wedding because the penthouse was vacant we were upgraded free of charge. The food at the wedding meal was fantastic and lots of it. This was also true of the evening food and complimentary sandwiches and drinks were sent up to the grooms room whilst he and the best man and groomsmen were changing for the church. Everything about the whole Clontarf Castle experience was wonderful. Even down on the day to being looked after by Rachel the Wedding organizer, the General Manager, the banqueting suit Manager, the executive chef, and the resident's bar manager. Thank you so Much Andrew & Irene.

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!

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 let me know it was whatever I wanted to do. In that very moment I could have hugged her. She handled it perfectly and I did not even have to think twice about it. Our wedding was simply perfect and the staff at Clontarf helped make that possible. We are eternally grateful and would highly recommend it to any couple. We can’t wait to go back and celebrate our one year anniversary there as well.

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 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.

We got married at the Clontarf Castle Hotel on July/25/17 and were blown away by the service and professionalism we received on the day prior and the day of. From start to finish our day was wonderful. The staff could not do enough for us.Hannah Foreman our co-ordinator was a pleasure to deal with from answering countless emails to attending all our needs on the day. Our ceremony room was decorated beautifully as was our reception. Our meal was delicious and served promptly. All of our guests thought the hotel was a fabulous venue and that the staff from the reception to the bar were a delight to deal with. We as a couple can not recommend this hotel for a wedding venue enough. Getting married was the best day of our lives and we believe that it would not have been as magical if we had got married anywhere else.

From the second we met Rachel Clarke, we knew we were in safe hands. Absolutely nothing was a problem for her, she was friendly, calming and lovely to have around in the stressful times! She was so helpful. On the day, the food was incredible, we are still getting comments from guests. The setting is stunning, a mix of modern and medieval. It really was the best day ever, made better only by the treatment we received from everyone involved, and the fabulous service provided.

I got married in Clontarf Castle on the 5th of August if this year. Like every girl I wanted the fairytale wedding and that’s what I got from Clontarf Castle. Everyone was so amazing to us, they could not have been more accommodating to us. You really get the 5 star treatment and service. I can’t thank Rachael (our wedding co-ordinator) enough, she turned our dream into a reality. She went above and beyond. Every little detail was perfect. The quality of the food the timing was perfect. Everyonr of my guests complimented the food, and the service of the staff. My mam, dad, sisters and daughter stayed the night before we were treated like VIPs. Even the morning of the wedding while we where getting ready, we had complimentary sandwich’s and champagne for the bridal party brought to the room. Rachael planned absolutely everything, she had everything timed to perfection everything ran smoothly. At the last minute we decided we wanted the bridal party to dance in to the Great Hall, again Racharl orgainedd the music the order of the Bridal party. I got so many compliments about our attention to detail on the wedding and none of that had anything to do with me all Rachael. If I could do it all over again it would be back in Clontarf Castle Lisa & Stephen

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

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.

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 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!

The setting and the bedrooms were also second to none. We had many international guests, mostly English and Welsh, who went home singing the Castle's praises.

Max and myself just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the team who looked after us so well with the organisation for 1st April … and in particular … on the day / evening itself. We had a brilliant day … and it all ran so smoothly. We really appreciate everything you did for us … it was fantastic. Everybody is still taking about what a great time they had … which is really good !!! Again … thanks so much for everything. All the team in Clontarf Castle really made it a special day for us … and we particularly appreciate everything you did.

Everything on the day went perfect and I wish we could relive the day again and again. Everyone is praising the hotel from what a nice venue it is, the great service we received and the excellent food that was served etc… thanks again for all your help! And ensuring that our day went perfect!

We had our reception here on 20/06/09 and it really was perfect. Everyone commented on the food, decor and how polite, professional and friendly all of the staff were. Adele, Jane and their teams really did provide is with the perfect day we were looking for. Only problem is that its all over too quickly, take it in Brides to be....you cant repeat it. Thanks to all at the castle.
