Hi, does anyone have any feedback about Angler's Rest (Strawberry Beds, Dublin) as a wedding venue? Thanks in advance.

never knew that was a wedding venue! Thought it was just a quiet pub, used to go there with my mam and dad on a sunday afternoon back in my youth :yelrotflmaosmilie:

I was at a wedding there (Winter wedding)and it was a brilliant venue. There was a drinks reception downstairs first in the area to the left as you go in the door, then the meal and dancing was upstairs afterwards. Food was excellent- we were given a menu with loads of choice which was brilliant, smoking area is fab and I dont even smoke, the bar is in the same room upstairs and the dancing area was perfect.Have to say that I loved it as a venue although originally I wasnt sure what to expect.If you need any more info let me know x

Thank you for the quick responses! I've never been there just came across it googling and the pictures were quite pretty. I couldn't find anything about actual weddings that had taken place there though, so thank you very much for that helpful information.

No problem plumandpear- as I said, I was really impressed with it as a venue and had been a tad dubious at first.It has a really lovely quirky feel to it and everything is on the one level (apart from the reception drinks bit)-bar, smoking area, actual reception room and toilets so it feels really exclusive. If you need any more information at all just let me know.

Hi PlumandPear, I'm also thinking about Angler's Rest - if you've had any more feedback or met with them perhaps you could let us know how you got on? Thanks a million!

Hello ikkelsharkie, I'm afraid I'm not on here often so I just saw your message. I don't have too much more information - I did go and have a quick look and I thought the room was really pretty. It's kind of a shabby chic vibe, with some exposed stone and brick walls and so on. It seems to have been redecorated very recently. There's a bar, toilets, and an outdoor smoking area all in the private space upstairs so I imagine you wouldn't have to mix with the public in the restaurant and bar downstairs at all. I'd be interested to know what you thought!
