Castle Dargan provided an absolute unforgettable day. Everything from the service, decorations, food was just outstanding. I could not fault the hotel at all. Tanya the wedding co-ordinator was just amazing from the very first dealings. She had such a warm welcome personality. Thanks again for everything.

We found Castle Dargan great to deal with, in the run up to the wedding we really felt like everything was under control and would run smoothly on the day- which it did! The venue itself is just stunning and I also have to mention the food - it was so delicious,and the portions were huge- so many guests complimented it.Our wedding was a little different to most but nothing was too much trouble for Tanya & Mary, and we both genuinely had the best day! We would absolutely recommend Castle Dargan to other couples who want their big day to be really special.

We had the most amazing day at Castle Dargan for our wedding. We wouldn't change a single thing! All the staff were amazing. Tanya and Mary were brilliant in the run up to the wedding, always being very quick to reply to emails, calls or questions. Tanya just put us so completely at ease, its so clear that she knows exactly what shes doing it takes so much stress away because we just knew she would make sure everything was perfect and it really was. Colm also looked after us on the day and he was great too and a special mention for Sean, the night porter, he really went above and beyond for us. The ballroom is stunning, the views are amazing and there was the most beautiful sunset while we were finishing dinner, I'll never forget it. The food was amazing, we've had so many people say since that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. I would recommend Castle Dargan to anyone, you wont be disappointed. Thank you so much to everyone at Castle Dargan for making our wedding day so amazing!

I can not speak highly enough about Tanya and her professionalism and help to ensure our wedding went to plan. She thought of so many things to ensure the day all went to plan. We had all our guests travelling from Galway and England so they all needed to stay in the hotel before and after the wedding. Mary on front of house assisted with accommodation for all my guests and managed to ensure we all got sorted as it was alot of organising. The food and wine were amazing and everybody commented on how fabulous it all was. Dont think twice about having your wedding here they were amazing!! We cant wait to go back to stay and many of our guests are coming back too.

We had our wedding reception in Castledargan on 4th August 2018 and honestly could not say one bad thing about it. We had viewed over ten venues before it and had not encountered the professionalism and flexibility that Castledargan certainly offered. Our wedding coordinator, Tanya was excellent and made everything we wanted, happen. Nothing was a problem. The ballroom was amazing with gorgeous views of the golf course and the food was incredible. We had the Atlantic timbale of seafood, goats cheese tartlet, Rack of lamb,duo of salmon and seabass and the medley of desserts as options and everything was cooked perfectly. Could not fault it.

14.7.18 So much to say!!! Neil & I would like to express our deepest gratitude to all the staff at Castle Dargan for an unforgettable day. From the day Michelle arrived (Wednesday 11.7.18) to the day we both left, we could not fault the service and attention that everyone showed us. Our wedding day was amazing and everything was taken in stride by a very professional team. The food was amazing and more than plentiful, every one of our guests that we have spoken to have said what a fantastic day it was and how the people from castle Dargan were instrumental to a perfect wedding. We would both like to say a massive “Thank You” to all but a particular mention for Tanya and Mary who dealt with so much pre-wedding planning, without you we would have struggled. We cannot say enough about Castle Dargan as a wedding venue, beautiful setting and beautiful people. YOU HAVE TO DO THIS. We will have our 1st wedding anniversary with you all, booking soon, can’t wait to be back. Thank you so much, Mr & Mrs Chandler

We found the overall service outstanding woh Castle Dargan, from the planning through to the big day itself. From the planning, meal tasting, price, booking of rooms and coordination on the day. We were made feel so welcome, important and overall special on the most special day of our lives. All the staff were friendly and went above and beyond to help. The meal on the day was super and so was the service. I’d definitely recommend Castle Dargan for weddings or events.

We had our Ceremony & Wedding Reception here on the 12th of May and to say it was excellent would not be enough. Tanya is the girl that manages the Weddings. She was absolutely brilliant. The first day we met her we knew we had nothing to worry about as she is so organised and really knows her stuff, extremely professional and nothing is a problem for her. The morning of our Wedding I felt so relaxed just talking to her. Caroline & Staff who decorated the place left no stone unturned it was complete perfection and and they were so lovely to deal with, their attention to detail is magnificent. Mary who sorts out rooms and Collette one of the girls on reception were just all so lovely and a pleasure to deal with. The meal was absolutely fantastic our guests were all so well fed. Bar staff and waiters were all brilliant. Castle Dargan is a Top Class place to have a Wedding & Cermony. We had the most memorable day ever. I highly recommend Castle Dargan as a Wedding Venue to any couple getting married. Thanks to all..

We got married Sunday 6th May 2018 in the fabulous Castledargan Hotel. Huge thanks to Tanya the wedding co-ordinator who is beyond professional, nothing was a problem from start to finish, she made us feel like king and Queen of the Castle. The setting is magical for a wedding and our guests so enjoyed the day and the place. Our thanks to Mario who looked after us throughout the meal and beyond and again his professionalism and attention to detail was amazing. Thank you all at Castledargan for a wonderful Wedding Day.

We both loved Castle Dargan having been to another friends wedding a few years before so when we got engaged it was an obvious first choice. The surrounds were beautiful and the venue was done exactly as we wanted. Anything i wanted to was no trouble for Siobhan and her team.

Good Evening Christina & Shawn, Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to work with you both to ensure you had the most perfect day.

Had a fabulous day/weekend in Castle Dargan, they couldn't have done more for us! All the guests raved about the food, the hotel and grounds, the staff, everything. Really lovely place, and really lovely staff. Great value too, and we just couldn't have wanted for anything. Thanks for making our day run so smoothly and so well, we felt so relaxed and content all day! All the very best, Íde and Seán.

We fell in love with this hotel the first day we went to see it all done up for a weddinig. There was some confusion for a few months over the contact in the hotel as they were changing management, but ever since Tanya came in to manage the wedding side of things she was top notch. This lady knows how to make you feel relaxed and actually enjoy the process of organising a wedding. Anything we asked for she said yes! Her communication with us in the lead up to the wedding was outstanding! Seriously.. can not fault Tanya. Day of the wedding was the same.. made us feel so relaxed! Everything about this hotel is sheer class, from the staff to the food, the scenery to the service. every little detail just fell into place for us and it was down to Tanya and her staff. the meal was fantastic and served really quick. We have had Family and friends tell us that our wedding was the best wedding they he ever been at and I know a lot of that is down to the hotel. I'll finish by saying the best thing about this hotel is that its secluded. Whoever is at the hotel that day is the people at your wedding and no one else really.. its brilliant! Thanks to Tanya and the staff at Castle Dargan for a day we will never forget. Lorraine & Pauric

It's almost a two staged review for Castle Dargan. From my ratings, they absolutely delivered on some things, but others could probably use some work. Everyone we dealt with was really friendly, and we never had any issues or disagreements with people. There were some communication issues, in that some emails went unanswered, and a few hotel room bookings went missing. There was also some staff changeover, which lead to some of our earlier conversations not being handed on to the subsequent staff. Our tasting session perhaps wasn't the greatest, something I put down to catching them on a bad day. But they were minor issues from our point of view. What we really wanted for them to nail was the day itself, which they did. The day itself was pretty much perfect. The food was wonderful, the service excellent, and whole room was setup spectacularly. We really couldn't have asked for more. Any issues that we did have during the tasting session were fixed, and they accommodated pretty much all our requests. All our guests commented on how good the food was, and how lovely they found the venue. I would certainly recommend Castle Dargan as a venue.

My daughter had her wedding here in July, it was a fantastic day, everyone who attended on the day had a fantastic day, nothing but praise for the venue, the food and the staff. Well done everyone for making Leeanne and Dermie Naughton's day so special.

I would recommend Castle Dargan to any couple. The staff were professional in every way. They made myself and my husband so at ease on our wedding day. Our guests loved Castle Dargan from the food to the scenery and staff were brilliant.

From the moment we pulled into Castle Dargan Resort in Sligo we knew it was the perfect place to have our Wedding. The setting is just amazing and the views are spectacular and thankfully we were blessed with a beautiful day to experience all it had to offer. Our wedding planner Kim Monaghan was fantastic and nothing was too much trouble and she took on board all our ideas and implemented them all to perfection. Everyone at the wedding complemented the excellent food and staff and we couldn't fault it one bit. The staff were very attentive and very professional and never pushy or rushed. The food was excellent and got so many compliments on the quality of the food. We tweaked our menu choices and this was never a problem with the hotel. The hotel offers a great all inclusive package and you really don't need to add to it whatsoever. I cannot wait to go back again and stay in Castle Dargan and it will always hold great memories for us.

Thank you to Castle Dargan for hosting what was simply the best day of our life. I have had so many of our guest tell me just how welcome they felt and how it was the 'best food they had ever eaten at a wedding'. The place was immaculate and decorated so beautifully. The staff were so friendly and helpful and I would recommend the venue to anybody getting married 10 out of 10. Can't say enough good things. Love Mr and Mrs McGuire xXx

Hi Kim, I Just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you so so much for Saturday! I don't know where I was dragged off to after I got out of the car but I never got talking to you after that! It was amazing! We loved every second of it. The hotel looked fab all decorated, the food was amazing(everyone is still talking about it!) And, as usual, the service was second to none! One of my guests is a chef, has been for about 30years and he said he could not fault one thing. We were also told that having attended our wedding, it had restored some of our guests faith in weddings ???? We loved the way the top table was served so professionally for every course and the way the desserts were presented to us was brilliant! Donnacha ran up and down to the top table, I'm sure getting in the way some of the time and all the staff had nothing but smiles and praise for him. I really could keep going for hours about every little thing that was amazing but I'm sure you know all of that!! A lot of our guests had not been to the hotel before and have said they will definitely be returning. Everybody, at one stage or another, commented on the staff, the reception, the waiters/waitresses bar staff etc. on what great attention they got and how friendly they all were. Ok, I will actually stop now ???? But thank you so much again, you were a great help to a couple who were completely clueless!! Anyway, I'm off back to our honeymoon in the sun!! Thanks again, Grainne & Charlie Xxx
Response from Castle Dargan Resort
Grainne & Charlie, Thankyou both so much for such a warm & positive review! I am so delighted to hear your wedding day here at Castle Dargan met & exceeded your expectations for the big day. The little personal touches definitely added to the overall decoration of the day. It was an absolute pleasure to work alongside you both in the planning. We hope to see you back at the hotel well before your First wedding Anniversary! All the best, Kim & all the Castle Dargan Team

I dont know where to start. You were all so amazing with everything. I have never seen such presion and attention to detail. The whole place was so well organised and we just felt so spoilt. The serving staff were soon point that i was thinking that you do some army style drill sessions, no hanging around and nothing missing. In addition allthe guests couldn't get over the quality of the meals and they kept saying it was probably the best wedding meal they have ever had. The stakes were amazing and i dont know how the chef managed to cook them just perfect. For sure thete was no shortage of food as well. Aidan loved his birthday surprise and the names on the plates was a brilliant touch. We were so happy that both of us nearly cried except that would have messed up my make up so no go. Thank you again and cant wait to come back for an anniversary dinner and spa night. All the best from the new Mr and Mrs Duggan i.e. Aidan and Kati.
Response from Castle Dargan Resort
Hi Aidan & Kati, Thankyou both so much for taking the time out to give us your feedback of your special day. You were extremely organised yourselves which allowed us to work at our best with precision & detail! Your favors & additional extras were also a lovely touch for your guests & wow that peacock cake was one of the best designs I have seen! Your vision for the whole theme came together so well . Looking forward to welcoming you both back for the first year anniversary ( if not before)! All the best, Kim & the Castle Dargan Team

Dear Kim, I would like to sincerely thank you and all the staff at Castledargan for making our special day so wonderful. You made the whole process from start to finish painless and smooth. From our very first meeting at the wedding fayre i knew we would click and i would find you easy to deal with. There was nothing to big or small i asked of you that you didn't try to accommodate. You and your team made the whole experience seamless and effortless. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day. Compliments to the Chefs for the amazing food and the waiting staff for the prompt and professional service. Also the bar staff were excellent and served us until the wee early hours of the morning. My mum slipped and twisted her ankle and a member of your staff assisted her to her room. Which we were so grateful for too. Dean and the band put on a great performance to get the crowd going and we just enjoyed ourselves so much. So on behalf of Philip and myself we are so happy to have chosen your venue to host our wedding. Feel free to use my comments on any feedback reviews you may have because it truly deserves top marks in every aspect imaginable. Without doubt Castledargan is the best wedding venue in Sligo. Kind Regards, Natasha McGowan,
Response from Castle Dargan Resort
Natasha & Philip, Thankyou both so much for such positive & inspiring feedback of your big day! From the beginning of the planning process, it was nothing short of a please to work closely alongside yourselves for your special day. Our wedding team are delighted to receive your feedback & were very happy to have been of assistance when your mum twisted her ankle. I hope she is well recovered now for the Christmas. We will loom forward to seeing you back in Castle Dargan to relive the memories on your first year wedding anniversary! All the best. Kim & the Castle Dargan Team

We stayed here for two nights while attending a family wedding recently. It really is a beautiful place, extremely relaxing. We did not avail of the spa treatments during our stay, however other guests attending the wedding did and said they were excellent. We did play golf on one of the days, a nice course with some challenging holes. The grounds of the hotel are also very nice and there is a nice walk down to the castle, although not very long. The staff were extremely professional throughout our stay and no request was too small. The beds were by far the most comfortable I have ever slept in for any hotel. The rooms were modern, clean and well maintained. We ate in the hotel on both nights, including the wedding, and the food was very good. You will need a car if staying here. There is not much around the hotel other than the village of Ballygawley, which has a shop if stuck for anything. It is about a ten minute walk from the hotel. Sligo town is a short drive and a nice day out. All in all a nice weekend, helped by the unusually warm October weather. Would definitely stay here again. Only negative for me was there was no swimming pool. For the size of the place and the available grounds, I think a pool would be a great addition.

Dear Shane, Thank you so much for your beautiful review. We were delighted to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at Castle Dargan along with the wedding day experience. I have passed along your compliments to all departments in the hotel.

We had our wedding here on the 18/09/2015. We had been to a weeding here a few years ago and feel in love the grounds and layout of hotel. After meeting with Kim we booked our weeding (at a great rate) we never looked back! Nothing we asked for was a problem for any member of staff. All our family and friends were blown away with how good the food was how helpful the staff were and comfortable the rooms were. I cannot thank everyone at Castle Dargan Resort enough for making it so easy for us to enjoy our wedding day knowing we and our guests were well looked after. So if you are getting married and want a beautiful location with amazing service and food look no further!!! Thanks again to Kim and all the staff. Shane and Nuala

We chose Castle Dargan resort for our wedding after viewing lots of hotels. The minute we drove up and went inside we loved the welcoming feeling and the combination of old & new decor. We sat down with Kim and we knew we had to have our wedding there! Kim and in fact the whole team at Castle Dargan are amazing. There is nothing they couldn't do for us. Kim is professional, accommodating, friendly and knows her job really well! We even asked for a certain beer to be brought in to suit some of our guests and it wasn't a problem! The meal was amazing. We opted for the supplement on the beef and it was so worth it. People are still talking about the food! The service during the meal was fantastic. So many experience staff. We have to say a special thanks to Kieran who kept the bar staff serving well into the early hours and looked after us the next day during our BBQ Matthew was also fantastic to us during our weekend. Again, friendly, welcoming and professional! If you are thinking of having your wedding there- book it now! You won't be disappointed. You will get a beautiful hotel with the best food and amazing staff- what more could u want the day of your wedding! It's one less worry on your wedding day and everyone deserves the best that day :)

We held our wedding ceremony and reception in Castle Dargan on Friday 7 August 2015. Castle Dargan was the first (and only!) wedding venue we looked at. From the moment we met with Kim we were sure that Castle Dargan was the wedding venue for us. The relaxed and welcoming atmosphere was what we loved the most. Kim and the rest of the team at Castle Dargan were eager to help with every aspect of our day. As we are from Tyrone in the North and travelling quite a distance, we decided to make a weekend out of the celebrations and we stayed in the hotel for 3 days – Thursday to Sunday. Many of our guests did the same. The reservation staff, Chrissie and Amanda sorted all the room bookings for us and the entire process was flawless. The girls were so easy and professional to deal with. The day itself was perfect from start to finish. The ‘Ladies’ stayed in one of the self-catering apartments overlooking the car-park whilst the ‘Gents’ were in a Lodge at the bottom of the avenue. The hairdressers from Salon 2 came out to the apartments on the morning of the wedding as did the girls from Icon Spa in the hotel to do our make-up. This meant that the bridal party didn’t have to leave the hotel that morning at all. The breakfasts for the Bridal party were delivered to the apartment and the staff were on hand to bring flowers and décor over to the hotel itself. The best thing about staying in the hotel the night before the wedding was that both the Bride and Groom could see all the guests arriving that morning. Not many Brides get to see this part of the day! The Ceremony was in the Coach House Lounge and it was decorated so beautifully and elegantly with black and gold chair covers. The champagne reception after was in the Courtyard and the atmosphere was fantastic. The wedding party took the golf buggies out onto the golf course for photos and they have turned out so well. We couldn’t be happier. The wedding meal is without a doubt the best we have ever had (bias I know, but very true). The service was second to none and every course was served fresh and steaming hot. Christina, Imelda and the team done such a good job. Our guests are still talking about how good the roast beef and lamb was. Our entire weekend was fabulous – we partied the whole time. The very lovely Christina babysat the kids on the night of the wedding and again the night after. The kids loved her and she put the parent’s minds at ease. Such a brilliant service by a brilliant girl! I would highly recommend Castle Dargan to anyone as a wedding venue. You won’t be disappointed. The staff are Castle Dargan’s best asset and should be commended for their approach and efforts. Thank you to everyone at Castle Dargan and well done to you all!! We will see you all very soon.

Hi ladies!! We hope everyone in Castle Dargan is keeping well. We are so sorry for the delay in writing this but it took us a while to finally accept that we need to get back to reality! We don't really know where to start. It's impossible for us to thank you all enough for the fantastic and amazing wedding day that you helped us have at Castle Dargan. Kim from the minute we met with you, you were nothing but a pleasure to deal with. No question was too much and you were always there to solve any query I had and believe me I know how many of them I used to ask you!!!! You helped the lead up to the big day run some smoothly and Imelda from the moment you took over things just continued to run effortlessly. Everything ran to perfection on the 17th and guests were treated with such individual attention that its no wonder they are still talking about Castle Dargan. I was hoping you could pass on to Matthew our kindest regards and thanks for all he did for us both. The food was definitely without doubt the best wedding meal we have ever tasted and our guests were blown away by the standard. Guests are still raving about the "fantastic meal". Nobody wanted for anything and everything was timed to perfection. No glasses were ever empty and any requests were happily dealt with. Thank you so much for making this happen. Chrissie also was an absolute diamond! She blew everyone away with her welcome smile and kind words of greeting. Guests were made feel so special and she helped everyone including myself with anything that they wanted with a constant smile and nothing was ever too much. It was a pleasure to have chatted and spent time with Bríd the day before the wedding. She really understood the theme we were creating in the function room and helped add to this with her creative flair. Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts. We hope to get down to you guys before Christmas to thank you all in person. Thanks again for everything. Mr & Mrs Ormsby

An amazing hotel with amazing staff. Great value for the service and experience we received. Staff could not be more helpful and attentive in particular Kim the wedding coordinator, Matt the bar and restaurant manager and Chrissie the reception manager. All our guests commented on their attention to detail the hotel friendliness and helpfulness and it was all we could have asked for our special day. The amazing grounds and hotel itself makes it a magical place for a wedding!

Wow... We had our wedding at this amazing venue may 2015.. It was superb on every level. I would recommend this hotel to absoulety everyone! We originally met kim, the wedding coordinator 14 months before our wedding date, and she was an instant Ray of sunshine, she is professional, hepful, made us feel completely at ease... Especially as we live in England ...nothing was too much trouble, and any question at all kim was straight back to us on email within the hour!.. Just incredible, we felt like the service was so personalised and we were made to feel so special. Something we never felt in any other hotel as we were looking around. Kim is most definitely a credit to the hotel! We carried on, had our menu tasting night there which was so beautiful, we will never forget it, the quality and amount of food was absolutely amazing... Something which carried onto the day.... The value for money...and quality was impeccible!! Our guests were stunned with the quality, everything was so tasty and plenty of food,.,, the staff even went round with seconds for our main course meats.!! Matthew looked after us so well throughout the meal, the attention to detail and quality of service was second to none... Lots of special touches that added to the day, we noted Matthew had his eye on the room, guests, timing everything was impeccible! ... The waiting staff are all unbelievably friendly....happy to help... We ran over a little late with the day... But nothing was a problem to this team!! The day was perfect, staff and venue, holds a special place now for me and my now husband... Cannot sing highly enough of this place!

Absolutely fantastic! We got married in Rosses Point Church and we had the reception in the Castle Dargan. We first met Kim the wedding co-ordinator and she sold the venue to us completely by being so friendly and helpful and by listening to us and accommodating our every request. She is an incredibly easy person to deal with for something as complicated as a wedding. On the day of the Wedding and the day after, all the Castle Dargan staff treated us so well - like friends or family. We never left the hotel between Friday and Sunday check-out - we were so comfortable and well looked after, we didn't want to leave. Chrissie and her team at reception were equally outstanding. We never once wanted for a single thing. Kim met with us a couple of times to discuss details of the wedding. On the run up to the wedding Kim was always available to meet with us or take our calls. Without her ever-present support in the last week we would have been lost. I cannot emphasize enough how highly I rate the service we received from every single member of staff at Castle Dargan. Everything on the day of the wedding had to follow a strict timeline and we had a lot happening. Not only did everything run smoothly time-wise, but we were also treated to the use of Castle Dargan House for some of the most beautiful wedding photos any bride could wish for. Kim was so friendly when she brought us over there before dinner and calmed us down in a very friendly way. The waiters and waitresses and bar staff were absolutely on the ball, and the food came on time and hot to the right places and the wine and toasts flowed as we had requested. Matthew and his team did a wonderful job. The day after the wedding Matthew and his team in the Middleton Bar and restaurant were immensely polite, courteous and thoughtful in dealing with us and our families.The girls in the Icon Spa were also amazing. They create such a beautiful relaxing atmosphere throughout the spa. A massage from Aisling is a must! I would recommend the Castle Dargan Hotel and Resort in Sligo to any bride and groom to be. I could type so much more about the high standard of staff and service in Castle Dargan, but I need to leave space for other reviews!! A truly memorable experience and an amazing hotel with fantastic staff. Thanks so much. Trish & Brian xx

Castle Dargan is an absolutely amazing venue. Kim and the team made the planning process and the day itself flow so smoothly and were fabulous to deal with. Chrissie took all the stress out of the accommodation booking process with her organisation, flexibility and availibility. Matthew was wonderful on the day, guiding us through it in the most friendly, calm manner. Stephen made our menu tasting so enjoyable. Kim helped us from day 1 - which was almost 17 months before the wedding date. She answered all my questions and was professional yet so lovely throughout. On the day we were welcomed in such a lovely manner. All the little personal details that we wanted to include were made to feature beautifully. The food was superb, the accommodation was fabulous and the day was one i'll never forget. I couldn't recommend this venue more highly.

Top class food. Service from all staff was excellent. All the subtle extra touches were appreciated. Our guests are still talking about the venue a year later.

We had our wedding here on Nov. 21st, 2014. From the moment planning began to the moment the last guest headed happily to bed, the staff were very helpful and all around amazing. Kim, Vinessa, and Chrissie were always on the ball and receptive to last-minute changes. We chose to have our ceremony in their beautifully appointed converted stable hall and it was so cosy and intimate and quite dramatic as dusk approached. The dining room was elegant, the food was great, and the bar late! Superb venue—it lives up to its reputation. Thanks very much to Castle Dargan for an unforgettable time. - Phil and Daragh

It has now been over two months since we got married yet still we are being complemented on organising a fantastic wedding day. Everyone complements us on how relaxed and happy we were throughout the day, this has a lot got to do with Kim Monaghan and all the staff at Castle Dargan Resort, in a nut shell they were flawless. A FANTASTIC hotel and grounds run by professionals, thank you for a dream wedding. Regards,

We had our wedding in Castle Dargan Resort in October 2012, We really couldn't recommend it enough, the planning was made as easy as possible with great care and attention to detail. As for the day itself, it completely lived up to our expectations. The drinks reception, the food, and the service all ran perfectly and castle dargan house is such a beautiful bridal suite. Kim and her team run a very tight ship! Thanks again for everything Kim

We were most at ease upon our first meeting with Kim in Castle Dargan, and knew that we were dealing with a polite , enthusiastic young professional. Everything we requested , was catered for without question, even the odd ones like getting the groom +friends out for a round of golf the morning of the wedding+buggies for the location shots! There were also added extras given to us which made those little touches speak volumes. The hotel looked fabulous and Kim is a great asset to a great venue. Yours in Marriage,

Our Wedding day on the 31st August 2012 was such a special, intimate day., The venue is set in the beautiful surroundings of the Sligo countryside with the dramatic backdrop of a perfectly manicured championship golf course. Ann + I met playing golf and we had been looking at various locations, Castle Dargan could provide the perfect setting and we could also get married in the most romantic Coach House room with its high ceiling and perfect lighting. Such a relaxing , beautiful resort.
