An imposing castle and former home to the Irish aristocracy set in a massive estate on the outskirts of Dublin could be yours exclusively for your next corporate event, be it a meeting of your international board or a grand gathering of colleagues.
People who work hard to ensure the success of their businesses need and deserve to feel valued by their companies.
And Luttrellstown Castle is that place where they can be made feel appreciated for their efforts. Just a short drive from Dublin City Centre, the Castle offers the perfect opportunity for you to set a new benchmark in corporate entertainment. This is the venue for the event your colleagues – and rivals – will be talking about for years to come.
Top of the ‘pro’ list for staging your event in Luttrellstown Castle is its exclusivity. The building – dating from the Norman era and boasting a Gothic facade – and the 560-acre estate with its championship-level golf course, horse riding treks, fishing, arboretum, formal walled garden and extensive parkland will be all yours for the duration of the event.
And when we say yours, we mean it. Luttrellstown Castle is not a hotel, it is a resort that’s exclusively yours when you reserve it for your event.
The Iveagh and Guinness families were former owners of Luttrellstown Castle and it has hosted royalty such as Princess Grace and Queen Victoria as well as celebrities such as David and Victoria Beckham for their wedding – along with Kelly Clarkson and Ed Sheeran during tour visits to Ireland.
The Liffey meanders nearby and can be accessed by paths and treks, which take you through follies and arches – perfect for the bracing walks to build up an appetite for the forthcoming feast and entertainment.
As you approach the building you will be awed by the battlements, turrets and the Gothic facade but once inside, the luxury and elegance will entrance you. Reception rooms with wood burning fires and fine furniture can be the setting for those away from the office discussions where bonds are made.
Banquets in the Van Stry Room under the welcoming glow of magnificent crystal chandeliers will be as far removed from the humdrum of another corporate lunch as you can imagine. Menus to make these meals memorable are planned to the last detail and served to the acclaim of diners by our expert culinary team.
If you want to dance the night away in the ballroom or simply relax in the company of your colleagues with a few well-chosen drinks, this is your prerogative.
Old meets new
Extensive renovations carried out in the castle ensure the bedrooms are appointed to the standards of modern rather than medieval comfort and they lack nothing in terms of style or elegance.
While gracious hospitality is an essential ingredient in a corporate event, what can really elevate the time spent in our venue is the range of events we can offer.
Grass karting or quad biking, air rifle shooting or archery, falconry or fishing – they are just some of the events we provide in our grounds. Inside the Castle we can arrange cooking demonstrations, painting tutorials, bodhrán drumming or wine tasting among others. We specialise in customising a range of team building activities for your group.
When you bring your colleagues to Luttrellstown Castle and Resort, it is yours for the duration and in case you think this will blow your entertainment budget for the next year or two, prepare to be pleasantly surprised at the value you will get.
Putting you at the heart of it
A further advantage is our expertise in helping you make sure that the event proceeds smoothly and in a relaxed atmosphere which puts you and your guests at ease. When you reach Luttrellstown Castle, your work is done.
Though the Castle is only a short drive from Dublin City Centre, it’s a world away from the world of high finance, courtroom drama or tech trauma. It’s the venue where the captains of your industry can be the lords and ladies of their very own castle for the duration of your event.
As they return to work following this event they will carry with them a lifetime of memories which should fuel them to strive even more for the success of your enterprise.
