Dear Marianne, Apologies for the delay but I wanted to send a quick note, before it really gets too late, to really express just how thankful myself and Brendan are for the amazing job you did for our wedding. We wanted to let you know it was an absolutely incredible day, we have not been able to stop talking about our wedding at the Castle. We owe the biggest thanks to yourself, for coordinating it to a T. Everything exceeded our expectations Marianne. We had no idea the wedding would be as amazing as it was, we both agree, it was the best day of our lives! Now, I am sure you hear that a lot! But we genuinely believe the reports from our guests that they were blown away and had the best time. Many hadn’t been to a winter wedding and we are so so sooo happy that we changed all our plans and booked the wedding that impromptu December day in 2015 we popped in for tea. The hotel, the lights, the food, the staff, even the weather, everything was perfect! Nowhere could have topped it, it was magic. It is funny though, with all the amazing details, the two hot topics following the wedding were the sauce on the cocktail sauces and the tayto sandwiches! Even the little things contributed to the perfect day. So again, thank you Marianne for coordinating the day, and to all the team that that were involved. To Jason for his genuine attention to our party. To Mark, who seamlessly took over as we moved into the night and effortlessly managed any minor issues we had. The servers were excellent, so attentive and kind, throughout the whole night. We can’t sing their praises enough. I am beaming just remembering the day as I write, and will forever. We already can’t wait to return when we are back in Ireland and we hope to see you soon as we continue our love affair with the Clontarf Castle. Sinead & Brendan

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 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 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 wonderful staff. Clontarf Castle now holds a very special place in our hearts and we will definitely be regular guests! Thank you Clontarf Castle! xoxo

Clontarf were exceptional from start to finish. Particular mention to Rachel Clarke our wedding coordinator, she was truly the reason our day was so special. She managed the whole thing perfectly from the day we chose clontarf as our venue until our big day. Jonathan the manager ensured everything went smoothly and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.

I wanted to let you know that your customer service and friendliness helped make the perfect memory for our wedding day. Clontarf Castle and Hotel was above and beyond my expectations….from the very first time I made an inquiry with you, I knew that I had absolutely nothing to worry about!! I will recommend your hotel to anyone I know going to Dublin and I wanted to express my thankfulness.

Hi Leanora, how are you. Only back in the office today so haven’t had a chance to email you. Just wanted to say a big thanks to you and all the staff in clontarf castle. You were all fantastic and could not do enough for me. A big thanks to Arnold – id say he had his hands full with me!!



You all made my day extra special and guests have been commenting on the amazing food and service from Clontarf Castle. Thank you so much J



On a different note – does the castle have the marriage licence? I think it could be in the safe – something was mentioned to me on the day but im not 100%!!



Kind regards,
