Why Luttrellstown is the perfect full venue for your fairy-tale wedding.
When you were a child and wondering what life held in store for you, did you ever dream of a wedding in your very own castle straight out of a fairy tale or a Disney movie – complete with battlements and towers, rolling gardens and majestic ballrooms and sparkling crystal chandeliers?
And did you dream that such a wedding could be arranged here in Ireland, within a short drive of Dublin city centre?
Luttrellstown Castle, set in an estate of over 560 acres, has hosted many royal visits and an occasional celebrity wedding in its long history. It will be your venue exclusively where your dreams can be fulfilled in the company of your friends and family. This is your day after all.
Possessing a history that stretches back to the Norman conquest of Ireland, Luttrellstown Castle has hosted Queen Victoria and Princess Grace as well as the glamorous wedding of David and Victoria Beckham. It has been the home of aristocratic Irish families such as the Iveaghs and the Guinness dynasty.
What the Beckhams understood – like their illustrious predecessors – is the value of a wedding where the entire resort is yours for the duration of the event.
Not just the stately castle will be yours for the duration of your stay – but its surrounding grounds – a formal walled garden, an apple orchard and an arboretum with over 300 varieties of exotic plants and trees.
Take a walk in the grounds and through the glen, underneath the Blind Arch and past the Doric Temple overlooking the lake, it’s like taking a walk in a different era. You could turn the clock to a time when life was a lot simpler than it is now.
There’s an abundance of romantic scenes in which to take the wedding photographs which will form the album of memories you carry with you always.
The castle itself is an imposing, majestic building. Its battlements hark to its Norman history. As you approach the building you will be awed by its Gothic facade but once you enter the building you will be entranced by its charm and luxury.
Opulence and comfort
Gracious hospitality is one of the heirlooms of Luttrellstown Castle. It has played host to many eminent visitors and been the venue for umpteen events of distinction.
Luxuriously appointed reception rooms lead into banqueting halls and ballrooms which are a feast for the palate and the eyes. Opulence and comfort vie with one another to put you at your ease in these classic surroundings.
When you arrange to hold your wedding in Luttrellstown Castle, the entire resort is yours for your special day. We can arrange pre-banquet cocktails in the reception rooms before a five-course feast in the Van Stry Ballroom.
The freshest of seasonal foods form the centre piece of our menus which can be prepared by our skilled culinary teams to meet the specific requirements of your special day.
As guests mingle and dance, take the opportunity to relax for a few moments in luxurious lounges, basking in the glow of a wood burning fire.
While the architecture of the building reminds us of long ago days, the bedrooms lack none of the modern comforts following extensive renovations and redesign in recent years. The rooms marry timeless elegance with modern style.
Ease the stress
Supporting you to realise the wedding day of your dreams will be our in-house planner who will help you arrange every detail to ensure the event bears your hallmark of distinction but ensuring you have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the day itself.
These times weddings can extend beyond one day and Luttrellstown Castle has all the facilities to ensure you and your guests can spend a day or two relaxing in the sumptuous surroundings. There’s the golf, of course, but also events such as Tai Chi, wine tasting, cocktail making and samba drumming can be arranged inside while archery, fishing, lawn games and horseriding are among the activities on offer outdoors.
Old and Modern Ireland come together
A short drive from Dublin City Centre, Luttrellstown Castle offers a bridge between a timeless Ireland of luxury and lushness and the modern country of bustling haute couture shops and Michelin starred restaurants.
It’s not just the stuff of dreams anymore to have your own castle. The Luttrellstown resort will be yours so you can fulfill your fantasy and make your special event one you and your family and friends will remember all the days of your lives.
