A modern luxurious Dublin hotel set in a stunning country setting

Whatever your dream, we make it a reality

The award winning Castleknock Hotel, Dublin , an FBD Hotel is now considered  by many to be the  premier wedding venue in Dublin. Set just outside Castleknock village in close proximity to the Phoenix Park between Luttrellstown Castle and Farmleigh House, the hotel is a contemporary alternative to the traditional hotel venue.

Opened in 2005, the hotel has a range of new facilities designed and built for our Castleknock weddings from 2011 including a  brand new bridal suite  and heated and sheltered smoking terrace adjacent to the main wedding ballroom.

We believe that our greatest strength is our service excellence and the quality of our food. Castleknock Hotel & Country Club has won no fewer than 11 awards since 2008.   With an AA Rosette Award for The Park Restaurant, Best Food and Drink Experience 2010 by the D15 Chamber of Commerce and the Customer Service Excellence Award in Tourism and Hospitality for 2009 and 2010 from The Fingal Chamber of Commerce, we’ll make sure that you have the wedding day you’ll want to remember.

Wedding Packages

There is a brand new package available for 2012 and 2013 called ‘Pick a Perk’ where couples can create their very own wedding package to suit their own individual taste. This means that you no longer have to pay for extra items that you just don’t need or want.   Click on the package of your choice for more information on what they include.

Pick a Perk Package from €63 midweek and €77 on weekends

Pick a Perk is also available from just €55 from 1st November till 1st March*

*excludes 24th December – 1st January

Accommodation packages from just €48 per person midweek and €58 per person on Friday and Saturday nights with breakfast included.

The Phoenix Suite

The Phoenix Suite really is the perfect setting for a wedding reception. There are two fully stocked bars within the room and a new private smoking terrace with a canopy and heaters and exclusive access directly from the ballroom.

The room is serviced by its own kitchen enabling the hotel to offer an efficient high class service for your meal. The hotel has also installed a new mood lighting system which creates the perfect ambience within the room with variable coloured settings available at your discretion.

The Phoenix Suite at the Castleknock Hotel Dublin has a flexible layout that allows the room to change size depending on the required capacity without making the room look too empty or crowded. Our maximum capacity for a wedding is 406 guests.

For an average sized wedding of up to 130 guests, you will only need to use the Sierra Hawthorn Suite which is a rectangular shaped room although there is the option for your evening wedding entertainment to be setup in the adjoining suite allowing a fluid transition from the speeches to the entertainment without any guest disruption if you wish. Our staff simply pull across the moveable dividing wall to unveil your band or DJ to the surprise of your guests. This avoids the lull that regularly affects weddings as they dismantle the top table to setup the band and maintains the momentum of your special evening.

For more information on this special wedding venue or a tour of the hotel, please contact our events team who would be delighted to assist you.

Intimate Weddings at the Park

If you are planning a small intimate wedding for up to 70 people sitting for dinner, there is the option to avail of the award winning Park Restaurant for your reception.

Upon entering ‘The Park’, guests will be amazed with the elegant ambience of candlelit tables, stunning decor with parkland and lake views of the hotel’s golf course and the new gardens, which is tastefully up lit at night.

After your meal and speeches, your party can then move to the Phoenix Suite for your afters party which can accommodate additional guests.

Civil Ceremonies

Civil Ceremonies are becoming increasingly popular for wedding couples in Ireland. The management and staff at Castleknock Hotel Dublin understand that your wedding day is extremely special to you both and that you may have some personal requirements. If you wish to hold your civil ceremony in Dublin, the Castleknock Hotel offers very competitive rates. All ceremonies can be tailored to your own specific requirements making the hotel one of the most impressive civil ceremony venues in Dublin.

The Castleknock Suite is the perfect room for a small private wedding  ceremony in Dublin  with family and friends. The candle filled room can accommodate up to 120 guests and has a small balcony in front of the ceremonial table which overlooks the local countryside and lake. There is also  the option to hire chair covers for your ceremony. You will then proceed to either the Park Restaurant or the Phoenix Suite for your wedding reception.

Margaret & John O Brien 22nd January 2011

I just wanted to drop you an email to thank yourself and Sylvia and all the staff who made our wedding day spectacular. It was a pleasure dealing with you from start to finish. From the minute we stepped out of the car until we checked out the following day, everything was amazing. The attention to detail that you and your team showed us was second to none. All of our guests complimented the chef as the food was fabulous.

I cannot thank you enough for making our dreams come true. I also got a great surprise when I walked into the reception room and the seat covers and bows were there to add that final touch. I would and will recommend Castleknock Hotel to anybody who I know is getting married and looking for a truly special venue.

Thank you,

I just want to say we had our wedding in the castleknock hotel in September 2009 and the staff were very helpful, even though we had a small amount of 50 people they were able to move the rooms around to suit the amount of people there. Food was great and we got such a good price. I would really recommend the Castleknock hotel to anyone getting married
