Alex & Carol 6th August 2017
Just a quick note to say thank you for all your help and support all the way up to our wedding. We had the best day of our lives on Sunday and we'll always be grateful to you for helping us make it happen. Everyone had a ball and didn't have a bad word to say about anything. From the food to the staff who were excellent and couldn't do enough for us. It's true what Alex said in his speech about you, you're a knight in shining armour and you definitely were to me helping me get into my dress.
Lorraine we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us throughout our planning. Thanks again for all your help, support and understanding.
Rachel & Geoff 22nd April 2017
The hotel was our second viewing and we knew then and there this was the one. We popped over for a stay at the hotel a couple of times had dinner etc and each and every time we left more and more in love with the place.A special thanks to Lorraine Coyle our wedding coordinator, probably one of the sweetest girls you could ever meet.
Lorraine went above and beyond to make our day everything we wanted and more. Nothing was ever a problem, Lorraine always returned my calls and emails and never made me feel like i couldn't get in touch at anytime with anything i needed to ask. I honestly believe she is partly the reason I was so calm leading up to the wedding which made me enjoy the day all the more so again thank you so much Lorraine you are the best.
From the time we arrived at the hotel we enjoyed ourselves so much we were looked after so well. The room was so beautiful and across from our room was a play room for the kids to let off steam and the staff were popping in and out with juices and bowls of popcorn I have never heard of anywhere else doing this, again amazing. I must give a shout out to Simon and the rest of the staff for looking after us on the day. Everyone had an amazing stay and are still talking about how much they enjoyed their time at the hotel. This hotel ticks all the boxes and is so beautiful but i truly believe this hotel is the best in the business because of the amazing staff and how well they look after their guest's.
The food was unreal it always is but it's lovely when your guests keep telling you they would love it all over again (eh so would I) Again thank you so so much to all at The Castleknock Hotel for making our day the best day of our lives the hotel will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
Linda & Steven 16th March 2017
We want to thank you and everyone at Castleknock Hotel for helping to make our day so special. Lorraine from day 1 you were so pleasant to deal with. Even with our few requests, you always worked to ensure we had no worries or concerns and ensured our day would run seamless.
From getting ready in the morning to the ceremony through to the reception - you and your colleagues ensured we wanted for nothing. The level of customer service was exceptional and we want to extend thanks to Simon who is made for his role and Monica who assisted when the evening reception.
At the reception - we only needed to turn our head and Barbara was there catering for our needs so please pass our sincere thank you also.
Natasha & Richard 31st December 2016
We got married in Castleknock Hotel on the New Year’s Eve and from the moment we booked with the hotel until our big day they couldn't do enough for us. Everything about this hotel is amazing, I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it and I knew my wedding would be perfect. Lorraine our wedding coordinator is just amazing at what she does. We didn't need to worry about anything on the day. I knew we were in good hands with her and her team, I'd highly recommend this amazing hotel, thanks for everything from Natasha and Richard. XXX
Laura & Stuart 19th December 2016
Castleknock Hotel and Country Club provided us with superb staff who have extensive knowledge in event planning. It gave us such a relief leading up to our wedding that everything was under control and we just had to enjoy the experience. Similarly, on the day I felt like there was nothing to worry about as the co-ordinator had an air of calmness which was very reassuring. I felt as if I could ask for anything and I could trust that it would be delivered.
Moran & Nolan Weddin 19th December 2016
Nothing was a problem! Literally nothing! It was always what you could do for us and never what you couldn’t. Our guests were so impressed with everything about the hotel and are still talking about the meal (the best wedding meal ever eaten by many).
I couldn't recommended the whole experience any higher. I have to admit we were a little anxious that as we were a small wedding in comparison to others you may cater for and the fact that large Christmas parties were happening the same day, we may have felt forgotten - but we need not have worried about that at all. We felt like the only and most important party in the hotel.
The whole experience was so relaxed but personal and professional. It really was the best day ever and the Castleknock Hotel was a part of making it.
Thank you again to Sinead, Lorraine, Simon and Andrew and all the staff that helped us.
Claire & Dean 8th December 2016
The effort Lorraine went to make our day so special was fantastic. All the staff of Castleknock Hotel went above and beyond the job they needed to do for us.
With her highly professional attitude and helpful nature, Lorraine lent us a red carpet for our church which she didn't have to. The wedding favours, candy cart etc. was laid out exactly as we asked. I would highly recommend Castleknock Hotel for your wedding reception. Lorraine and the staff are of the highest standard we have meet, the work they will do for you and advice they gave us was a great help. They really made us feel special and made it the best day ever for myself and my wife, everything from food, service and friendliness was 10 out of 10. Thanks guys for making it a perfect day for us.
Jackie & Maurice 25th November 2016
From the moment we met with Sinead to view the hotel as a possible venue for our wedding, we fell in love with Castleknock Hotel & didn't even bother to look at another venue! We booked our wedding on the spot. We weren't disappointed!! Our wedding was Friday 25th November 2016 and we are still on a high from it. We cannot thank Lorraine & Elena enough for everything they have done for us and our guests. We were treated like Royalty. Everything from the word go was perfect and everything went so smoothly. The staff are all so pleasant, friendly & very professional. If anyone is looking for a wedding venue, this is the place to book. On our journey to becoming husband and wife, one of the most enjoyable parts of the planning was meeting so many nice people.
Jackie and Maurice also wrote a testimonial on www.weddingsonline.ie giving us a 5/5 rating with the following statement, "I would highly recommend Castleknock Hotel to anyone who is looking for a venue for their wedding. I cannot fault Lorraine and her team, they were amazing. Everything on the day was perfect, their service is so professional & anything we requested was no problem to them. Everything went so smoothly & still to this day we have our friends and family still talk about our wedding day."
Sinead & Richard 28th October 2016
Our wedding day was perfect, on the day of our wedding staff couldn't do anymore to facilitate us and our guests.
The standard of service was second to none all still one month later all of our guests are talking about what a great day they had.
Gillian & Callum 22nd October 2016
We honestly don’t know how to thank all the management and staff at Castleknock Hotel, not just for our incredible day but our incredible weekend! As we had a huge number of guests travelling, we needed a venue that was close to the city without being right in the city. Castleknock Hotel fitted every requirement we had. From our initial meeting until leaving on the Monday after our wedding, we were treated with nothing but kindness and professionalism. Lorraine and her team do an amazing job! The reservations team (Valarie and her colleagues) deserve special mention, they had so many queries and changes and everything was dealt with smoothly and efficiently - nothing was too much hassle for them! Since our wedding day, all anyone can talk about is the food and the professionalism of all the staff! The food was INCREDIBLE! Every member of staff knew our names and made us feel like the hotel was a home from home. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you sincerely to you all. We couldn't have done it without you. I would highly recommend Castleknock to any prospective Bride or Groom - you won't be disappointed.
Bent & Ray 15th October 2016
Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding day we had on the 15th October. We couldn't have asked for any more from the banqueting and wedding planning team, in terms of their consistent support, help and care they showed to make sure we had our dream day. Special thanks to Lorraine, Sinead and Elena for everything you did. Lorraine, you made sure everything we wanted was spot on and ready to go on the day and it made for such an easy, stress free experience for us all. I can honestly say, when I walked into the civil ceremony room for our Hindu ceremony I was taken aback at just how beautiful it looked and how calming an atmosphere had been created for us for our second ceremony in the hotel. The mood lighting during the ceremony and our dinner reception made such a difference. Thank you all so much for an unforgettable, you were a great bunch of people to work with and we would definitely recommend the hotel for future wedding celebrations.
Swords & Hurl Wedding 9th September 2016
The day was faultless. You made the whole process easy and the hotel was one thing we didn't have to worry about. Everyone commented on the hotel, the layout of the room and in particular the food, which was amazing. Everyone loved the evening food and there was so much of it.
The hotel are lucky to have you there as their wedding coordinator and we have done nothing but rave about you and all the hotel staff to everyone. You made our day extra special and the attention to detail was exceptional.
Natasha & David Kennedy August 27th 2016
We just wanted to say thank to everyone for all their effort and help with our wedding reception in the hotel on the 27th of August. We had an absolutely fantastic day, which we are still getting over!
Special thanks to Sinead Codd & Lorraine Coyle for all their help and assistance in the months leading up and on the day of the wedding as well. We never had a doubt that the hotel would deliver a great reception for us, being in such good hands.
The staff we encountered over the whole weekend were superb, unfortunately cannot recall all the names, but special thanks to Mathias who looked after the top table, he was superb, and to Rachel as well who was involved and led us into the room! I want to mention one of the bar men on duty on the Sunday as well, didn’t get his name but he was a black haired gentleman (maybe in his late forties?!), he was a credit to the hotel and deserves to be mentioned.
Our guests were blown away by the wedding room, the drinks reception and the food. We knew they would be! A brilliant service and we knew in our hearts before the wedding that we made the right choice, and this was completely confirmed following the weekend. A lot of the guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding and the room was spectacular. M of our guests then wanted to book some time themselves into the hotel in the future. The golf course setting is of course excellent and was only heightened by the amazing weather we had on the day.
So once again, sincere thanks to everyone involved for helping make the 27th of August the best day of our lives! We've been fond of the hotel for a long time and will certainly be back for a visit again in the near future!
Finglas & McGlew Wedding 13th August 2016
We would highly recommend Castle knock hotel the hotel is really modern and spacious. The staff could not have been more helpful especially the floor staff and Lorraine herself. This day will stay in our hearts forever. Thank you so much. Xxxx
Una Lowry & Will Byrne 24th June 2016
Myself and Will would like to thank you so much for making our wedding perfect, it could not have gone any better and that is cause of the work all the staff put in. From the first time we went to view the hotel we knew it was where we wanted to get married. Everyone was so nice and could not have been any more helpful throughout the whole wedding planning process. Anything we asked for was sorted no problem, it really made planning the wedding so easy. All the guests told me how welcome they were made feel by all the staff and how well they were looked after. Everyone had a great day, the food was amazing, everyone commented on it.
I would like to specially mention Rachel, our waitress from the reception, she was fantastic, she could not of been any better. The small touches she added, having a laugh with us and getting me a mug from my tea (silly I know) really made a difference. Fiona the next day (Saturday) checking in with us and making sure everything was ok and running smoothly really made us feel cared for and appreciated. The barman on the Saturday night in the Lime Tree bar (I cannot for the life of me remember his name, young guy, bit of a beard) he was brilliant, he was having a laugh with everyone and interacting making everyone feel welcome and relaxed.
Lastly Lorraine I want to say a special thank you to you. You were my sanity while planning the wedding, anything I asked you sorted. Your attention to detail and how warm and friendly you were made it so easy to fully trust you. You made our wedding the best weekend ever, we could not have pulled it off without you. From the bottom of my heart thank you, you are fantastic!!!
Lizzie & John June 3rd 2016
Lorraine helped us to create our dream wedding. She helped with every little detail. I had total trust and faith in her that the room would look exactly how I wanted it to. The attention to detail was amazing. We had the best weekend ever. My only regret is that it's over and I can't do it again. We had fantastic weather so we got fabulous photos on the grounds.
Jaqueline & Alan 28th May 2016
I can't thank the hotel staff enough for their attention to detail and for making it a day to remember. They really pulled out all the stops! I would recommend the Castleknock hotel to anybody looking for a venue to hold their reception at as they will not be disappointed. Amazing venue.
Laura and Diarmuid 22nd April 2016
We cannot recommend castleknock hotel highly enough. From the first day we called into the hotel to view the reception room, to checkout the morning after the wedding the staff were amazing. So polite, friendly, attentive & professional. On the day of the wedding we were delayed 40 minutes getting our photos taken, when we arrived back to the hotel it was almost an hour later than planned, we never felt rushed or under pressure for time from any member of staff or wedding team. We were still sent off on our own to relax before we went in for dinner (even after we had delayed all their plans). The staff could not have been nicer, guests are still telling us how friendly & professional all the staff were on the day. The reception room was amazing, it was decorated so tastefully and elegantly - we didn't know what we wanted so we took heed of all the wedding planner's advice (Lorraine - she didn't steer us wrong & her suggestions were flawless). The bridal suite was fabulous - we were so tired we decided not to get up for breakfast the next morning...at 11am we got a phonecall asking if we'd like our breakfast brought up to the room which was brilliant. Anyone considering having their wedding reception in Dublin needs to call into castleknock hotel, once you view it you'll have your heart set on it.
Shane and Erika 19th March 2016
Erika and myself had our wedding at Castleknock hotel & Country Club on March 19th 2016. We found the staff to be ever so nice and helpful with any request we had, they really out did themselves. Both Erika and I had such a magical and wonderful day. The room we used for our ceremony was decorated to the highest standard, it was just what we imagined and more. The function room looked so lovely, the staff are very friendly and professional at the same time. So its a massive thanks too all from us.
Danni & Barry 5th March 2016
Myself and my husband Barry would like to kindly thank all the staff at Castleknock Hotel for giving us the most amazing day ever for our Wedding Day. It truly was the best day of our lives. The whole day went very smoothly. The staff was very professional and friendly. They were constantly checking that everythingwas ok for us and if we needed anything else. I was delighted that the wedding coordinators and the chefs let me choose my own menu. The food not only looked amazing but it tasted amazing too. Me, Barry and all our guests had an amazing night from start to finish. We were especially happy that they put on the Conor McGregor fight for us and our guests at 6am and had no problems with us taking over the place to watch it. We also had a BBQ the following day and the food for the BBQ was also lovely. It was the best weekend ever. It's 4 weeks on and people are still talking about it and saying it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We would highly recommend the Castleknock Hotel as the best Wedding Venue
McCullagh & O'Shaughnessy 11th March 2016
Completely recommend Castleknock Hotel as a wedding venue. From day 1 we loved it, such a relaxed intimate feel to the hotel and staff are so friendly. The food is amazing and the grounds are beautiful. Our photos turned out great. Lorraine and the events team were a pleasure to deal with.
Catriona & John 29th November 2015
From the day we booked our Wedding the staff were just fantastic. If we had a question or needed information the Wedding Team such as Lorraine and Sinead got back to us in minutes! we had several meetings also and they couldn't have been more helpful. They were in constant contact in the run up to the day, making sure everything was in order and making sure that they had it perfect for us. The day itself was fantastic. From the minute we arrived the staff were there to help and organise and as we were getting married in the hotel, there was more organising for them. They did a wonderful job and we loved every minute. Elena was there to organise the Ceremony start, the dinner call, the speeches, the personalised decorating pieces we had brought in the night before and all the external vendors. She was fantastic. The food was an absolute winner with all the guests commenting on it. The waiting staff and bar staff were so friendly and so willing to help with anything at all we needed. Everything went off exactly as we had wanted and the staff are a credit to the hotel. It is no wonder they do so many weddings as we couldn't find a flaw with any of them.
Valerie & Brian 30th October 2015
I recently got married in the Castleknock Hotel and the events team there were outstanding from start to finish. All our requests no matter how big or small were listened too and dealt with. All our dealings with the hotel up to the wedding day were great and they always got back to us straight away. We got married in the hotel and everything on the day went perfectly and that again was down to the professionalism of the events team and how they all worked as a team to make sure everything went according to plan. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the castleknock hotel for a wedding and wedding ceremony as they know how to make your special day extra special.
Maggie & Barney 31st October 2015
Planning a wedding might be stressful. Planning the wedding with Castleknock Hotel was a pleasant experience. We couldn't ask for a more professional and helpful staff. The very warm welcome and constant reassurance was very appreciated. The event management team was outstanding. If we could do it all over again- Castleknock Hotel would be the place ! Thank You
Dervila & Diarmuid 19th September 2015
Our wedding reception at Castleknock Hotel was perfect, we couldn't be more happy with everything. Thank you for making our wedding day so special
John & Wayne 4th September 2015
We had our wedding in Castleknock hotel on the 4th of sept 2015 and it was an absolutely perfect day. The hotel staff did everything to a tee. We couldn't of asked for better. Even our guests were commenting on the hotel choice and had a fantastic day and night. A huge thanks to Sinead Codd who helped us to arrange everything and made the day run perfect. Well done to all involved and thanks for a perfect day Castleknock hotel.
Ciara & Richie 1st August 2015
We would both like to say a huge thank you to yourself and the team at Castleknock hotel.
Throughout the whole process the help and support was fantastic , each and every little query we had was dealt with quickly and professionally.
The wedding day !!!
Well what can we say about this… EVERYTHING went amazingly. Each and every staff member over the two days were outstanding and a credit to the hotel and Guy. He has a fantastic team of staff and a well-oiled machine in the hotel !
There are a few people we would like to specifically mention.
Sinead …. Thank you both so much. I can safely say without either of you the day would not have gone half as well as it did, you were both a fantastic help.
Gavin .. Gavin was absolutely outstanding, his team on the day were flawless and we could not have asked for anyone better looking after us on our wedding day. No task was too big.
Rachel … WOW, Rachel is a credit to the hotel, her hospitality and service at the top table was unbelievable. She was an absolute gem to deal with.
Elena.. Well, what can we say…. Elena was an absolute pleasure to deal with over both days, we cannot express our thank you to this lady enough, words cannot describe how fantastic she was to us on the day of our wedding and the day after our wedding. We were both blown away by Elena and the service she provided us over both days. Her passion and love for her job was remarkable and it says a lot about the hotel to have such a happy and fantastic team behind them. Elena also came in on the Monday (her day off) to help us check out and get all our stuff together, this completely blew both of us away, it is very rare you would see this and again it really shows the love and commitment Elana has for her job and the Hotel. SHE IS AN ABOSLUTE CREDIT TO THE HOTEL.
Andrew…In the words of Richie, what a genuinely sound, hardworking bloke! On the Sunday the service continued through Andrew, he never stopped from the time we met him on Sunday until the time we went to bed Sunday night. He was constantly in checking on us to ensure everything was ok and that we were well looked after …. He was absolutely brilliant from start to finish.
Bar staff and chefs – The food was exceptional every person we spoke to raved about the quality and taste of the food was exceptional. Bar staff in both days were excellent , there was never a long wait time or a long que.
Ellyn & Lorraine … The reservation team were brilliant to deal with in regards to reservations. We had a few mishaps and nothing was too big for them to deal with.
Last but not least !
Throughout our whole experience from organising the wedding to our wedding day and the days after the wedding the one thing that stood out the most for us was the STAFF, each and every individual we dealt with from the reception team to floor staff , event managers and the background team were absolutely brilliant and we cannot thank you all enough.Our guests were blown away by the staff and the service they provided and it was relayed back to us by each and every person we spoke too. Guy has an exceptional team with him and it really does show through the service and hospitality of the staff. Coming from the hospitality industry I know I look out for stuff that others wouldn’t necessarily notice ,,, but there was genuinely nothing we could even begin to fault throughout the two years of planning the wedding right up until the wedding day. The day was fantastic and that was down to Castleknock hotel and its staff. We could not have chosen a better venue for our day.
Again thank you all sooo much for everything.
Ciara & Richie.
Victoria & Bobby 24th April 2015
We were delighted with everything but if we had to pick anything it would be the staff. We fell in love with this venue. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for us the day of our wedding. Sinead our events coordinator was lovely to deal with, Victoria loves the colour pink so Sinead knew exactly what to do. Excellent Value for Money. This hotel is amazing.
Laura & Andrea 27th June 2015
I hope you are all well. I had my wedding on Saturday the 27th of June this year. I am just back from holidays and need to take this time to thank you all for a fantastic weekend.
You couldn't have done enough on every level. from the events team, Nicola, Lorraine, Eleana, Tomas and the guys on duty on Saturday to bar staff and Andy looked after us at every turn. Can't tell you how happy we are and how the weekend went. I cannot compliment your team enough! Nothing was too much trouble.
Laura and Andrea
Aoife & Kevin 18th April 2015
The experience & customer service from start to finish was second to none. The initial meeting with Sinead was great as we were taken on a tour of the hotel. We knew there and then we wanted the hotel to host our wedding as it just felt 100% right. From there on in we were provided with regular updates from Sinead to ensure we were on track for key milestones leading up to the wedding. Every time we called or emailed the service was the same from the day we booked. The tasting was amazing, looked after by the banqueting manger and his team to allow us to choose a fantastic menu for all our guests. The week of the wedding, Nicola looked after us to complete the final arrangements making us feel at ease on the run up to the big day. The day itself went without a hitch, every member of staff was amazing looking after us and our guests throughout. All our guests were complimentary about the hotel, the food and the service provided. As the new Mr & Mrs Shearer we would like to thank you all for everything you have done for us to make our special day one to remember for many years to come. From the moment we came to meet Sinead we knew this was the place we wanted to have our wedding. The whole journey from then was a fantastic experience and we were looked after from start to finish. It is excellent Value for Money.
We would like to make a special mention to Andrew Sherlock. Aoife and I stayed at the hotel at Christmas and got talking to him during that time. We mentioned how we were having our wedding in April and he said he would be working that day. Sure enough Andrew remembered us greeting us with a big welcome on the day. Andrew worked tirelessly making sure Aoife myself and all guests were being looked after on the day of the wedding and the following day at the BBQ. He is an example to all on customer service, everything was done with a smile on his face and nothing was too much trouble. Many thanks Andrew for looking after us so well over the whole weekend!
Kevin & Aoife.
