“Excellent Service, Beautiful Property, Ireland's/Europe's Best!”

Luttrellstown Castle is an enchanting property located just outside of Dublin. I had the pleasure of visiting last month for a wedding and I was incredibly impressed. The grounds are immaculate, the interiors are stunning, and the staff was INCREDIBLE. I have nothing but great things to say!

“Magical Wedding”

We got married in Luttrellstown Castle in July 2023. We had visited Luttrellstown a year before hand and it was the only venue we viewed. After the detailed tour with Paulina we knew this was it as it is breathtaking from the moment you enter the castle. For our wedding Paulina took amazing care and attending to all the details. From first meeting to the tasting of wines & food and the running order of the day. Paulina was also there on the day and it meant we really got to know one another and it was down to Paulina, Shauna and her team that made the day so seamless and special. We had the most memorable, magical day and everything was perfect. It was noticed by our guests the beautiful ground, delicious food and wine and how beautiful the castle and rooms are. We will always have such fond memories of Luttrellstown Castle and want to thank you and your incredible team for all you have done in order to make it such a beautiful day for a large party of friends and family. Thank you from us both.

“Ideal Irish Wedding Venue”

We looked far and wide for the right venue to host our small destination wedding in Ireland. We are extremely happy that we chose Luttrellstown Castle!

The setting is gorgeous in any season, but the summer flowers and ivy made it a wonderful backdrop for our outdoor ceremony. It was even more stunning than we had imagined, having visited the castle in the winter and spring. Inside, the entertaining spaces are great and the guest rooms are all very well appointed and unique. This specific castle allowed us to give our guests modern luxury in a historic setting. It feels uplifting and there is a lot of natural light. Many of the other venues have a heavier feel and have heavier decor and design elements.

The food was phenomenal! Having done the tasting, we were excited about the food but it exceeded our expectations in both the taste and presentation for both the wedding meal and breakfast. In fact it was the best food we had in Ireland and we enjoyed some wonderful meals at top notch places.

Paulina, the wedding and events coordinator, was always on top of messages throughout the planning process. She and the rest of the staff were a pleasure to work with as we planned our wedding in about six months. Everything went off without a hitch and we especially appreciated that they worked with us to trust that the weather would break for an outdoor ceremony. Many of the venues want you to make a decision about moving your ceremony indoors a day or even a week in advance. It was great to have more flexibility. The on duty manager, bartenders, servers, and grounds keepers were all incredibly welcoming and were very open to our unique requests.

All in all we can't say enough good things about Luttrellstown Castle and we highly recommend it as a fantastic wedding venue.

“Brilliant wedding, epic venue.”

We had our wedding at Luttrellstown in August 2023 and had a fantastic time. Paulina Vasiljevaite was our wedding coordinator and she is absolutely brilliant at her job and the wedding day ran so smoothly from start to finish. We really appreciate all the effort Paulina put into the planning the day and that she was always available to answer our questions and put our mind at ease.

The castle is so beautiful and all of our guests we so impressed with everyone who works there. Thanks for letting us do the wedding ceremony outside, we really enjoyed it !

“Dream Wedding Experience”

My husband and I had our destination wedding here in July. I could not imagine our special day being any more perfect. The communication was amazing throughout the year leading up to the day. The entire team at the castle, especially Paulina, was so kind and attentive from the moment we arrived. The castle itself, the grounds, and the rooms are so beautiful. While you get the full "castle" experience, the utilities are modern and the castle had everything we could have needed. The food was also amazing. Everything we ate over the two days from breakfast and snacks to the wedding meal tasted like a five star restaurant or better. I am so happy I was able to have my wedding here and if I could do it all over again I would choose Luttrellstown every time!

“10/10 Wedding Venue”

We got married in Luttrellstown Castle this Saturday. Our guests were so impressed and fell in love with the venue as we did when we chose it. The staff were incredible. Service was 10/10. Any request wasn’t too big or small. Our wedding coordinator Paulina supported and helped with the planning of our wedding from day 1. She ensured everything ran smoothly on the day. We are so glad we chose Luttrellstown Castle as our wedding venue. It was the most magical day of our lives.

“Most Extraordinary Wedding Venue”

Our wedding was flawless and so enjoyable due to the amazing Luttrellstown Castle crew! Paulina was kind, efficient and flexible with us throughout the planning process and day of. In terms of preparation, we were able to meet with her several times via teams online, we flew in for a tasting and tour with Kathy (who was also amazing!) and we had great communication via email. The day of the wedding, the staff was friendly from start to finish and they genuinely seemed happy to be working our event. The venue was gorgeous. Our guests had the time of their lives as well and continue to give us compliments for throwing the most extraordinary wedding. We highly recommend this venue. Live out your dreams here at the Luttrellstown Castle!

“A Fairytale Castle”

We had our wedding here at the end of June. It was a fairytale experience. We wish we could relive it again and again. The venue was clean and beautiful, and Paulina made sure our day was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

“The most perfect wedding venue <3”

We had our wedding in Luttrellstown a few weeks ago, and I cannot speak more highly of the team, not to mention how beautiful the venue is. Paulina was our coordinator, and she went above and beyond for us. No question was too silly, and no request was too difficult - she made what could have been a very stressful few months, a very easy and painless process. She made sure the day ran smoothly and kept everything on time and for that we cannot thank her enough. We stayed in Luttrellstown for two nights, and I honestly could not fault it. Shauna and Darragh are also part of the Luttrellstown team, and they were just fantastic for the duration of our stay. All of our guests complimented the amazing food, the venue and the fabulous team - we could not have chosen a better location for our wedding. Not to mention, they welcomed our Labrador Sully as well! Thank you to the wonderful Paulina and team, if we could do it over again we would - it was the most perfect day from start to finish.

Jessica & Sean 2023

“Dream Wedding at LC!”

We had our wedding at Luttrellstown Castle (LC) in May of 2023. Paulina V. was our event planner on site. I truly cannot speak highly enough about her. She went above and beyond to make sure everything went perfectly. I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again for another event!

Thank you to everyone at LC for making our dream wedding come true! The venue, the food, the service - everything was amazing. LC felt like a home away from home.

Thank you to Paulina and the team!

“A must do bucket wish list castle as wedding venue with incredible staff”

From the tasting menu experience at the Golf Club, the wedding day and overnight stay in the castle was extraordinary from start to finish. Mary and Shauna’s attention to detail surpassed my expectations as a guest. I had an unfortunate large splinter in my hand on arrival and the focus was to get me back to bridal party without any hesitation once I was established in my room . Attention to detail without any hint of stress was phenomenal. I was met with smiles hugs warmth professionalism. Castle was splendid, grounds royally maintained. Rooms magnificent. Food catered for all specialties. I did not want to go home. The beds were of highest quality to sleep like a princess. The staff were so efficient and courteous. Every single one of them should have a pay rise to conform to inflation. They should be treasured.

“Intimate Wedding at Luttrellstown”

I don't typically write reviews but making an exception as Paulina and the Luttrellstown team absolutely blew it out of the water for our wedding day. Starting with booking, we were eyeing a few other venues but the Luttrellstown team's professionalism and responsiveness set them apart immediately, making Luttrellstown the obvious choice for our special day. My fiancé and I planned our wedding from cover to cover, but Paulina Vasilijevaite was our day-of coordinator and she went absolutely above and beyond with making sure the day went smoothly in the months leading up and especially the day of - I still have no idea if anything went wrong :). All we had to do was show up on our wedding day and everything else was taken care of including the reception set up and boy did it take our breath away.

Leading up to the wedding, my husband and I knew it would be a nice venue but we really couldn't begin to imagine since we both saw the venue for the first time hours before we said I do. Let me tell you, the beauty of Luttrellstown hits you as soon as you turn into the grounds - I could not believe my eyes pretty much the entire evening into dawn. Photos really do not do this place justice. It felt poetic to be married in Luttrellstown, like the only thing more beautiful than the castle was our love for each other and our guests that we were hosting - it really set the tone for the evening.

Because of the weather, we were unsure if we would have an outdoor ceremony but the rain held out and Paulina acted quickly to get our outdoor rental chairs setup before the ceremony started. The Wisteria knew we were coming!!

It's obvious the chef at Luttrellstown has a passion for food; I did not expect for our 5 course dinner to be so culinarily pleasing, with each course placed in front of guests at the same time which is a small detail one would find at finer dining establishments. We hosted 60 guests, but the banquet hall felt comfortably full and bustling, as did the dance floor all evening long. The dance floor setting was actually insane.

The staff and barkeep's at Luttrellstown were truly amazing, with no last minute ask too much trouble (drawing the massive shades for our candle lit dinner). We partied until the sun came up and truly felt like kings and queens. This is an evening we will never forget, and can confidently say it would have not been the same if anywhere else. Thanks to the Luttrellstown team, and especially to Paulina who deserves everything and more.

“Elopement Wedding”

Our castle wedding was magical. From the moment we arrived, they welcomed us with great kindness. Our rooms were perfectly organized and personalized. The food is delicious, the chef presented each dish to us and was attentive to us. The bartender was present the entire time and was extremely friendly. All the staff behaved incredibly. We love this place, our day was perfect and magical. We hope to return soon.

"Our Dream Winter Wedding"

"From the moment we booked our wedding in Luttrellstown Castle we knew we were in such safe hands, but little did we know just how amazing our wedding weekend was going to be.

Mary Troy was our main contact for our wedding and she was simply AMAZING. Nothing was too much or too little - she answered emails on days off, helped with (many) questions and thankfully for us we have become friends from this whole experience . A special mention to Shauna who helped and had such amazing patience with my 89 year old grandmother as well as the General Manager, Ivan who was there on the night making sure everything was perfect.

We really would've been lost without the entire team.  From staying the night before, the castle was all ours and it was magical. All of the guests mentioned how amazing the food and service were and that was our main goal for our overall wedding.

We cannot thank Luttrellstown Castle enough for creating one of the most memorable weekends of not only our lives but also our family and friends".

"The Best Day of Our Lives!"

"We are only back in the land of the living this week. Thank you so so so much for everything you did in the lead up to our wedding and on the day of our wedding. It’s safe to say we genuinely had the best day of our lives!! The food, the wine, the staff, everything was amazing. Lots of people commented on the bar staff in particular. Thanks for playing such a massive role in this. We feel very lucky.

So many family and friends have commented on the venue being the most spectacular wedding venue. Our wedding day highlighted the level of detail Luttrellstown goes to - the hanging of the coats, the golf buggies, seamless check in, friendly staff, THE CHRISTMAS tree, the staircase, the decor etc. I feel like the luckiest lady.

Thank you all so much."

"Epic Wedding"

"We are still on cloud 9 over here after that absolutely gorgeous and epic wedding. Our highlight was the castle and just having the place to ourselves was so special. Our guests had an absolute blast roaming the grounds and everyone raved about the food. Thank you for helping us make our dream day come true - it was such a pleasure working with you. I'll make sure to share the photos once we get them back!

I hope we can visit again one day soon."

"Exceeded Expectations"

"Thank you for helping us plan and execute the most spectacular wedding, exceeding any expectations we could ever imagined!!! We still can’t believe it. We are still over the moon from our wedding - it was so spectacular!!  We continue to receive fantastic feedback from our guests about the venue and that it was truly so memorable."

Breada & Christian, September 2022

"Seemless Operation"

“From the moment we arrived at the Castle, it was very clear to us that all was in order.  The accommodation team were swiftly on hand for our arrival and guests checking into the castle before the ceremony. It was a seamless operation which was deeply appreciated.

Our suppliers have all been in touch to compliment the smooth running upon their arrival to ensure they were able to do what they needed to do swiftly.  

We both felt so relaxed because we had such confidence in the team behind our big day. The food was exceptional (including the night-time buffet) and the service was also outstanding.  We could not have hoped for better. It was truly a team effort which did not go unnoticed, everyone including the chef, wider kitchen team and night duty staff went above, and beyond which made us, and all of our guests feel very special. 

The Castle itself is the most spectacular venue for a wedding particularly as it is so immaculately maintained. We hope to return someday and look forward to being back somewhere so special to us. 

Thank you for the most magical memories which we will cherish for a lifetime xxx"

Laura & Stephen, September 2022


"We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we had the MOST amazing time, you are totally fabulous, a force to be reckon with as a Wedding Events planner, a true pleasure to deal with, especially being the other side of the world, I have never felt so relaxed knowing you had everything under control...I do events for a living too so me not being “in control” was a big thing but you had every detail ahead of me you are a super star 💫

We loved every moment of our day from start to finish and so did all our guests, it was perfect, the venue, the food, the wine, the Irish dancers & Irish band, the flowers the cake, the hair & make up, the staff at Luttrellstown all simple fabulous💚🇮🇪☘️

Our Thomas, Sarah, Emily & Evie too felt like they were in Fairy tale, couldn’t believe it 🇮🇪so thank you ☺️

You helped us make life-long memories so thank you again it just doesn’t seem enough."

"What a spot for a wedding"

"What can we say, this venue was fantastic on every level. We got married in Nov 19. Having only booked in May, we needed our venue to help us out with as much as possible. Heather (one of the Luttrellstown wedding planners) couldn’t have been better. I don’t know how many emails she responded to - always doing her very best to make sure Luttrellstown was facilitating everything we wished for.

We had our ceremony in the Gothic Hall. With the Christmas tree as a backdrop, the setting was really gorgeous for a winter wedding. It was so intimate and cosy.

The food was just excellent from start to finish. We had the crab tian as starter, steak/sea bass for mains and the chocolate tart for dessert. We are foodies and a lot of our guests were as well. So we knew the food had to be good. But everyone was raving about it. The afters food was also great. There was so much of it - sliders, fish and chip cones etc. All excellent and served up as a big feast at the end of the night which is what everyone wants after a night of dancing 🙂

Accommodation: the bridal suite is out of this world. Such a treat to spend a night here. All of the other rooms are gorgeous. One nicer than the next.

The bar is located in the dance room which works really well for a wedding party and meant our crowd didn’t get split between rooms.

The residence bar is the library - a really striking room with nice couches to sit in at the end of the night. This room is ideal for a sing song if that’s what your crowd is in to. We took some of the official family photos in here, and some on the grounds. This room is a great option for photos if the weather isn’t great.

Speaking of photos there are so many great locations for photos in this venue. From the immaculate grounds (those fields of rape seed in the summer 😍) to the fabulous staircase inside, there’s endless options. And our guests were queuing up to get a photo infront of the huge Christmas tree. Your photographer will be spoilt for choice!

This place was ideal for us. An impressive venue with top quality food, drink and service but a relaxed vibe. The staff really help to set this tone for the day (and the run-up) and you can pretend you’re welcoming people to your house for the day! It also helps that the Resident’s Bar is open till 4am so you really have the run of the place.

It’s hard to say that we don’t have one complaint about the place, but this is true! Start to finish, it was superb. The service, the staff, the space, the food. we couldn’t have asked for a better day. This venue has everything!"

"Destination Wedding"

"My husband and I chose Luttrellstown Castle for our wedding venue and we are so happy we did! We had a destination wedding so we coordinated completely over phone and email. Amy was a pleasure to work with and was so incredibly helpful whenever we had questions or concerns. When we arrived at the castle, we couldn't believe how beautiful and ornate every inch of the castle was. The staff on the day of our wedding truly made our day perfect. It was raining on and off and they moved the ceremony location indoors and then outdoors so many times for us... I can't believe how helpful they were. Doreen, Max, Aiden, and Durrah (not sure of all spellings!!) were true professionals and our wedding wouldn't have happened without them. We couldn't recommend this venue more!!"

"Simply Stunning"

We hired Luttrellstown Castle over 2 days for our wedding in May 2019. The castle and grounds are simply stunning and after viewing the venue we fell in love and knew it was the special setting we had been searching for! It is clear to see that a lot of work and care is involved in the uptake of this castle and the staff we spoke to genuinely had a passion for what they do.

During the booking process we liaised with Amy Dowling and Heather Lynch who were absolutely fantastic throughout. These ladies make sure that every small detail is taken care off so that on the day you have absolutely no worries or stress! We were lucky enough to have Heather present on our wedding day and she was such a joy to have around. It must be noted that all the staff present during our stay were extremely helpful and friendly towards us and our guests.

A couple of months before our wedding the second round of renovations were completed so our guests were lucky enough to be one of the first to stay in the luxury redecorated 15th-century style bedrooms. Needless to say we all enjoyed exploring each others rooms 🙂

The weather was sunny so we made the most of the grounds and enjoyed drinks and a meal the day before our wedding with close family and friends. We were advised that this is a private venue and we should treat it as our home. This was 100% the vibe we got as soon as we arrived. All our guests relaxed and enjoyed each other’s company. Staff were always around the castle in case you needed anything but otherwise they gave you privacy to relax. On our wedding day Heather Lynch met with all the vendors arriving and ensured that everything was just how I had planned. The meal served was exquisite and we received so many compliments from our guests since the wedding about the food. The price of this venue may appear high, but I can promise you this magical setting is worth every penny!

"Wonderful Time"

"Highly recommend this fantastic castle. We had a wonderful time with our family party, and it was magical having the castle all to ourselves. The food was delicious served on a beautifully set tables. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The rooms are really lovely with every modern convenience but still have a sense of history about them. The grounds are amazing and when the weather stopped us going outside the games room and the library were a fabulous alternative. All members of the family, both young and old(er), really enjoyed our stay here. We would definitely stay here again"

“Fantastic Wedding”

"Thank you very much for arranging everything for our wedding day in Luttrellstown Castle Resort! Yaohui and I had a fantastic wedding day, and all of our guests have a deep impression of the wedding and service you provided as well. We got the fantastic firework show from Emerald Fireworks, nice dj from Natasha and flowers and of course nice food and drink and perfect service from all of your staff in Luttrellstown. Please do bring our thanks to all of your staff in the venue. We are looking forward if we have other chance to come back to Luttrellstown again!"

“Exceeded our Expectations”

"From the first phone call, I knew this was going to be an amazing experience.  The staff at Luttrellstown Castle offered an unparalleled level of hospitality that we have never experienced.
Paddy graciously drove us around the castle grounds so we could capture its beauty in our wedding pictures. During this time, Eoin walked out a beautiful tray of canapés for us to enjoy and even came back with an umbrella when it started to rain.
Everyone was there for us and for our big day.  The castle and staff exceeded our expectations and all of our guests walked away with an unforgettable memory."

Steve & Beverly, July 2018

“Amazing Wedding Day Ever”

"We just want to say a massive thank you to yourself and Ivan, and of course all the lovely staff at Luttrellstown Castle.

You made us feel so welcome from day one, and we had the most amazing wedding day ever, it really surpassed all expectations and lots of people said that it was the best wedding they were ever at!!

The food was excellent and everything about the castle just made it the perfect day for us. We can't thank you enough for everything that you and Ivan did for us and our family and friends!

We are absolutely delighted that we choose Luttrellstown Castle!
Thanks again, and best wishes to you for the future! We will definitely be up again for afternoon tea 🙂
