Luxurious, Lush, Opulent and Eclectic, add to that 50 acres of manicured gardens, courtyards , walled gardens, a tennis court with private BBQ area ,herbaceous borders, a river running through it and you will get a feeling for what Castle Durrow stands for. The bedrooms in the main house are of a 5 star luxury quality and our bedrooms in the courtyard and the garden rooms are all quaint and individually styled.

Feel the warmth and experience the magnificent surroundings from the moment you step into the castle. The 15ft high ceilings, velvet appliqued handmade curtains, antiques and modern pieces all add to the sense of style and splendour.

Our beautiful banqueting hall, with its hand painted silk panels, shimmering chandeliers and large private terrace, is where you host your dinner and party. Freshly picked ingredients from our walled garden, local producers and our own team of chefs will make your carefully chosen wedding banquet a dinner that no one will ever forget. There will be dancing until late and then afterwards you can retreat to the bar for late night laughs and song!

We are approved for civil ceremonies and humanist ceremonies

Our personalized service, combined with authentic, elegant surroundings of the highest quality, embodies a home away from home for you and your guests.

We were so thrilled with Castle Durrow as our wedding venue. The wedding team could not do enough to help us on the run up to the wedding, answering lots of my emails!! On the day itself, they were always there to help... They were so hands on! The venue felt like our home for the weekend. We were treated amazingly... All of the staff were so helpful and welcoming. The food and service was brilliant... Lots of our guests commented on the kindness of the staff, the quality of the food and the beauty of the venue itself. We are so thrilled with everything.... I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Castle a Durrow to any couple. I'd just love to do it all again!

Durrow Castle were exceptional as a wedding venue. The level of attentiveness and support given towards myself and my husband from the moment we booked the venue was second to none. From the wedding team to the accommodation staff and kitchen staff, we couldn’t have asked for a single thing more. Anything we requested was made possible, they never made us feel that any request was too much & all correspondence was genuine & personal Emails were always responded to promptly (within 24 hours) & if there was anything that needed clarifying they would always get back to within a short period of time (within the week). The day itself was magic - & Castle Durrow went to every ends to make us feel so special. The grounds are immaculate & stunning, every guest has since contacted us to sing the praises of the food, wine & service. In particular anyone with dietary requirements said the staff were so attentive in ensuing everything was explained to them & dietary options were wonderful too. As a vegetarian myself, I loved the variety of options that were provided to me, it made the whole experience even more fantastic. I would absolutely recommend Castle Durrow to anybody considering it. You get everything you pay for & more, even after the wedding as we were leaving, the staff presented us with 2 beautiful gifts to show their appreciation. Everything is included in the cost presented to you, there is no hidden costs which is another advantage hat you don’t have any surprises.

Gorgeous venue, great food, amazing service. If you are looking for a wedding venue in Ireland, look no further. We had our wedding reception and next day BBQ here and everything perfect. We planned our wedding as a couple abroad - first from Singapore then from London. We loved everything about the venue, the location, the reception hall, the rooms, the food, and most importantly, the people. The Castle Durrow Weddings team (Niamh and Suzanne) were a delight to work with and answered all our questions. The reservations team (Melissa and Alice) were also both organized and patient as we and our guests finalize our room bookings. During the day itself, the Banquet team and their manager, Lillie, took amazing care of us and made sure everything was flowing smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. This went on until the next day when we had the BBQ at the Pavillion.

What an absolutely wonderful venue. Amazing grounds, gorgeous food, and the staff are extraordinary. Castle Durrow gave us our dream wedding and every one of our guests had told us that it was the best wedding, the best venue and the best food that they have ever experienced. We had our wedding reception and also anBBQ the next day here and honestly, everything was perfect. We fell in love with the venue as soon as we pulled up the drive way. Inside is even more beautiful with its breathtaking character and charm. The grounds-oh wow- there really aren’t enough words to describe how wonderful they are. But the biggest star of all were the staff. They really went above and beyond and nothing was too much; no request too big or small. The Castle Durrow Weddings team (Niamh and Suzanne) were amazing to us from day one. We were planning from Liverpool then later Belfast and they really supported us every step of the way to make sure we got our dream day. They were so professional but they also were so friendly and personable. We really were made to feel so special. Niamh looked after me on my day, and I must say thank you. She took every stress away from me and she made sure the day was perfect. The reservations team (Melissa and Alice), again like all the staff here, so accommodating and looked after all our guests and us so well. Alice even went out of her way to pick up my bridesmaid from abbeyleix when she was struggling to find a taxi. I don’t know of any other hotel that would have done that. Alice, you’re a superstar. A special mention to Lilly who looked after us during the wedding reception and the bbq the next day. She simply is wonderwoman and had the banquet running so seamlessly and flawlessly. This went on into the next day when we had the BBQ at the pavillion with the wonderful help of ray who was equally as brilliant! Let me tell you, you will have the wedding of your lives if you book the pavilion as well. Our guests were blown away by it and the food was exceptional. I really wish I could do the weekend over again, it was pure perfection. Thank you so much Castle Durrow, we will forever cherish you in our hearts and can’t wait for our next trip.

I cannot speak highly enough about Castle Durrow. The venue is obviously stunning but I think it is their wedding team that really makes this an amazing venue. I dealt mainly with Niamh, though the whole team were very helpful. Niamh seemed to pre-empt my every need or want. She facilitated all of my requests and often had helpful suggestions to improve my ideas. The day of the wedding itself, my family and I felt like royalty. The entire staff were just great, any little issues that popped up (through no fault of Castle Durrow) were dealt with calmly and resolved immediately. All of the bridal party commented on how great the team were while we were getting ready and our guests have gone out of their way to let us know how much they liked the venue and how great the staff were.

We had the most amazing wedding day in Castle Durrow, the food, decor and service was second to none. Nothing we ever asked for in the lead up to our day was ever an issue and Niamh and Susan were always on hand to help and advise us. They pulled out all the stops on the day and made sure we were always ok. Castle Durrow and its whole team were brilliant and all our guests complimented how great they were. Castle Durrow itself is a BEAUTIFUL place full of charm and nested within lovely gardens. It will always hold a special place in our hearts.

Faultless - completely perfect wedding experience, start to finish. The loveliest and most professional of staff to deal with, from the wedding team, to reservations, to the fabulous bar and dining room staff who looked after us and our guests so well on the big day, night and morning after! And not forgetting the lady of the house Shelley Stokes :) So many compliments from our guests on how at home they felt in such a stunning venue - not a hint of stuffiness from anyone. Venue itself is spectacular and food divine - and plentiful! The canapes just kept coming ensuring everyone was warmed and well fed after the ceremony on a cold winter's day. Honestly wish we could do it all over again and really looking forward to going back for our anniversary in a few weeks time :)

Castledurrow were an absolute pleasure to deal with both in the run up to our wedding and on the day of the wedding itself. The venue, service and food was fantastic. We had a winter wedding and the castle itself and the bedrooms were all very warm. Would without a doubt recommend Castle Durrow to other couples.

We had an amazing experience organising our wedding with Castle Durrow. The staff were wonderful and made our guests feels so welcome. They made wedding planning such an enjoyable experience, particularly Suzanne, Niamh and Lily. All the staff there went above and beyond to make our family and friends feel at home. It was the most perfect wedding venue we could have wished for!

We held our wedding in Castle Durrow in November. We had the most amazing weekend and would highly recommend the venue to anyone who is considering having their wedding there. Nothing was too much trouble. The wedding team, Niamh and Suzanne, were both amazing to deal with in the lead up to and on the day. Also all of the team at the front desk, restaurant, bar and at the reception were fantastic. We really felt like it was our home for the weekend. I would also highly recommend Castle Durrow to anyone looking for a break with young children. We have a baby who was treated like a princess for the weekend which made it all the more special for us. We are really looking forward to our next trip back! Kate & Tim

My husband and I live in the Middle East and planned our entire wedding from there. The one thing I wouldn't leave to chance was the venue and after our engagement I flew back to Ireland on a mission. Because we live abroad and seldom see those we love we wanted something special. We wanted to give our nearest and dearest a day to remember and Castle Durrow certainly delivered. Castle Durrow is simply stunning... from the impeccable grounds and courtyards to the banquet hall, the grand staircase, chandelier, the details and features in every room. Castle Durrow oozes grandeur without feeling pretentious. One really does feel welcome. You feel the hospitality and warmth and that sense of being 'at home' from the second you walk in the door. That's largely due to the fact that Castle Durrow is family owned and operated, employing members of the local community. Esther was always a pleasure to bump into in the corridors. James and Donnie were true gents and looked after us so well on the day. Nick took care of everyone at breakfast and even gave us tips for our honeymoon in Mauritius. Lilly took control of the banquet hall to make sure everything ran smoothly and bless her she had her work cut out for her with me trying to keep me in my seat long enough to eat my dinner. The lead up to the wedding was quite stressful, I had so much to pull together when I got home but Castle Durrow and the team were always on hand to help. Huge credit to our coordinators, Suzanne and Niamh, for keeping me grounded and for dealing with everything so quickly and so calmly. I made some unusual requests and nothing was ever too much trouble. Rooms were changed last minute, our banquet was delayed due to the traffic in the village, Aidan's shirt collar got covered in makeup after the ceremony as we greeted guests but on arriving at Castle Durrow Suzanne took him away and he returned 5 minutes later without a trace. Everything just ran so smoothly. Castle Durrow and the team could not have done more for us. We hosted a pre wedding Bbq in Bob's bar in the square which CD also did the catering for. Every meal we ate was impeccable over the 3 days we called Castle Durrow home. In comparison to other venues Castle Durrow is a slightly more expensive choice for couples but a wedding in Castle Durrow is an experience and I feel that the price is reflective of that. The quality of the food, setting, grounds, attention to detail, service provided and the care given to our guests was exceptional. The Stoke family are obviously very proud of what they have built and you can see that they are constantly reinvesting in the property to further enhance an already exceptional experience for their guests. We're really looking forward to visiting Castle Durrow again next time we're home, without the pressures of a wedding, and just basking in its beauty, walking the trails, eating good food and taking a trip down to Bob's. We had a really beautiful wedding day and wouldn't change a thing. The feedback from our guests has been wonderful. Many of them hadn't heard of or visited Castle Durrow before and were blown away by this little gem hiding in the Midlands.

Shelly, Suzanne, Niamh & everyone of the team delivered over & beyond our expectations. We stayed 3 days with them & every day was special for different reasons. The service, the food, the relaxed environment, the professionalism of everyone was exceptional. We would highly recommend Castle Durrow to any wedding planner. You will not be disappointed. My husband reminds me everyday that ‘if Carlsberg did weddings they couldn’t beat ours’!

Our wedding would not have been the wedding it was if it had not been for Castle Durrow. It truly is one of the best venues Ireland has to offer. It oozes class on every level. The service leading up to the wedding and on the day was second to none. The food which was one of the most important aspects in our wedding was absolutly outstanding and was highly rated by our guests. Choosing to have our wedding in Castle Durrow was the best decision we made. It really blew everyone anyway.

Myself and Jennifer got married on the 22nd of July in Castle Durrow. We both live in Dubai so as you can imagine it was a little harder to organise. The staff in Durrow were amazing and catered to all of our needs every time. We had to outsource some jobs to family members and the staff in Durrow were happy to deal with them at short notice and always accommodated us. Once we had visited Castle Durrow we both knew that this was the perfect location for our wedding. With our schedules being so busy we were not sure if we would get back for the food tasting. We did however manage to get back one weekend at short notice. After a quick phone call the staff at Durrow organized everything for us allowing us to do the food tasting on a very busy Friday night at such short notice. The facilities in Castle Durrow were fantastic and all of our guests commented on what an amazing location it was and how professional and friendly the staff were. They literally could not do enough for us. The weather was perfect and allowed us enjoy their perfectly manacured gardens. Following this the reception was held in their banqueting hall and the food was all served together and to the highest standard. We had 160 guests so keeping everything on track was a job in itself. This was all taken care of by the staff and all we had to do was enjoy the day. The following day we enjoyed a BBQ in the gardens of Castle Durrow. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxed just what we wanted after our wedding. After speaking with our guests after our wedding everybody was so impressed with the attention to detail,quality of the food and the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. We cannot say enough about our experience at Castle Durrow.

We could not fault Castle Durrow in any way for our big day. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure that everything ran so smoothly. Niamh and Suzanne were always at the end of the phone or email if needed. On the day itself Lily ran the show expertly from the banquet room. We had a number of small children at our wedding also and they could not have been catered for in a better way making life a little easier for their parents. Our guests are still talking about the food!!! We are looking forward to visiting you again soon hopefully!

Myself and my husband Pat could not recommend Castle Durrow highly enough for this award. Each and every member of the wedding team as well all the other hotel staff we met along the way were highly professional, friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with. Nothing was ever too much for Niamh, our wedding co-ordinator, and no matter how many questions I asked (and believe me, there were a lot) or what I needed to confirm she responded to everything so promptly and nothing was ever a problem. Our wedding day was truly amazing and all the wedding team made us feel so relaxed and special on the day. They never left a stone unturned and many of our guests commented on their friendliness and professionalism. We could not think of a more amazing venue to get married and we can not wait to go back again soon.

We had the best day of our lives, facilitated by all the excellent staff and management in Castle Durrow. Planning was meticulous. The wedding and accomodation teams worked to ensure that all details were managed prior to the day. On the day Suzanne and Niamh were on hand for everything. They saw to things that we did not even see! All of the staff were so friendly and attentive, not just to us but our guests even remarked on the superb service, meal and venue.

Myself and Andrew had our wedding reception here in June of this year and I have to say Durrow Castle is an absolutely stunning wedding venue. From it's castle front, its warm & luxurious rooms, its stunning rose, wild flower & walled gardens (perfect for our wedding photo's), it's very welcoming & friendly staff and finally the most delicious food. From the moment we met our wedding coordinator we were made feel so very welcome. We weren't rushed and we really felt that our wedding day was as important to them as it was to us. Our wedding tasting was more than 5 stars, exceptional! We had an amazing evening with the waiters and chefs, lots of giggles and a wonderful complimentary night stay in Durrow Castle. On the day of our wedding everything ran smoothly and without issues. The service, from drinks to our wonderful meal was once again more than 5 stars. All our family were still talking about the high level of food presentation, quality and taste for weeks after. Durrow Castle is Pure Perfection! Thank you everyone at Durrow Castle for such an amazing and memorable day!

Myself and my husband had the most magical day at Castle Durrow. We picked the venue after we went to my sister's wedding in Castle Durrow we loved it so much. Nothing was too much to ask and everything ran so smoothly. The girls in Castle Durrow couldn't have done any more for us and it was just so relaxing, if there were any hiccups we didn't see anything. Not only that, but the food on the day was absolutely fabulous (everyone still talks about it). We couldn't recommend the place any more, and I know if anyone picks it as their venue it will definitely be a day to remember.

As soon as we viewed Castle Durrow we knew we had found our wedding venue - it is beautiful and the perfect setting for a wedding. The wedding reception was set up exactly how we wanted. The staff were very friendly and helpful from start to finish and thanks to Niamh, the whole process was stress free as we knew we were in good hands. The food was delicious - people are still commenting six months after our wedding as to how good the food was (especially the sweet potato soup)! We couldn't recommend Castle Durrow enough and can't wait to visit again on our anniversary.

A beautiful venue with amazing staff! So many of our guests commented that they didn't hear the word 'no' all weekend; the staff were so obliging with any request and nothing was too much trouble.

We wanted a venue that would be intimate, rich with character and history and easy to access for our international guests. From our first meeting with Niamh, we knew that Castledurrow was the perfect venue.Professionalism personified, Niamh was on the ball from day one since we were living abroad and it was great peace of mind that she and her team always were on hand to answer any questions. On the day, all the team could not have been more helpful and friendly. Feedback from our guests really said it all, they had a fantastic time. Casteldurrow surpassed our expectations, delivered outstanding service and holds a special place in our lives forever more.

From our very first contact with Castle Durrow we knew it was the place to host our wedding. We loved the chilled out vibe with sheer luxury and no stuffiness. The wedding team were superb and were always available to offer support and guidance. We hosted a family meal the night before our wedding at Castle Durrow and we felt the team made a huge effort to get to know our families and to make them feel as special as we felt for our wedding weekend. We loved our day and wouldn't change a thing. We hope to return to Castle Durrow for many years to come, it will always have a special place in our hearts. X

The wedding team were a delight to work with, especially when planning our wedding from overseas. They were incredibly buttoned up on all aspects. We had a brilliant wedding weekend - special thanks to Shelly, Niamh & Suzanne.

Castle Durrow is the most amazing venue. We were so lucky to have our wedding there in April.From the first day we saw the place we fell in love and the added bonus is the truly amazing staff and their attention to detail. We opted for the rack of lamb as one of our main courses and it was by far the best I have tasted and the guests have been raving about it since. We can never thank them for everything they did for us. Castle Durrow will always hold a special place in our hearts and we will be back to stay again soon.

All the staff at Castle Durrow were so friendly and professional. The atmosphere the staff brought was one of the reasons we picked Castle Durrow. Everyone was so lovely to us and made everything so easy for us. The venue is truly beautiful and our day was perfect. We look forward to many more happy stays at Castle Durrow.

Very professional and accommodating staff who went above and beyond the call of duty when the wedding car failed to turn up and couldn't be contacted, one of the chefs drove the bride and her dad to the church in Thurles. There appears to be no end to what the staff will do to ensure your wedding day goes off without a hitch. Can't recommend Castle Durrow highly enough. The whole day was a success.

I love the way it really felt like it was our home from home for the weekend. Our parents and guests were super impressed with the little touches like free teas and coffees. We had quite a few kids at our wedding and they were all given a second round of ice cream while the adults were still finishing their meals, little things like this made the day so much more enjoyable for the guests. Even with the tasting meal, the staff went out of their way to make sure we were well catered for and nothing was too much trouble. The room was amazing I loved the way it felt so intimate as the bar was in the same room. It also looked amazing in February with all the fires and candles lit.

Review by
We were looking for a venue that would cater for a small 40ppl wedding with civil ceremony on the site. We found that the wedding team in Castle Durrow were the only ones that treated us as a wedding and not just a private party. We were very happy with how our day went. Everything was perfect even though we had our doubts as our wedding coordinators changed during the planning process and with anybody answering to emails there was a little confusion and misinformation at times. The staff of the hotel does know their wedding business though and the day went really smoothly, the venue looked beautiful and everybody were very happy about the food and service. This venue is really unique with delicious food, amazing grounds and friendly and helpful staff. I had my hair and make up done by powder box in hotel and was very happy with them as well.

The team at Castle Durrow surpassed our expectations and helped to make our Wedding Day extraordinary. From the moment we started planning the day with the weddings team, we knew we had made the right choice with Castle Durrow. Every little detail is considered and planned to perfection. Our guests raved about the excellent food and the service at Dinner - and breakfast the next morning too! Special thanks to Niamh and Suzanne, and of course Shelly for making us feel extra-special from the minute we arrived - and for the entire 3 days!

Castle Durrow is an amazing wedding venue. Their attention to detail is outstanding. They cannot do enough for the bridal party from first engagement to final departure. The hotel is fantastic, the reception room is beautiful, the food is amazing and the staff take care of so much. Marie and the staff are so helpful offering good advice throughout. The accommodation is very comfortable and breakfast next morning is really really good which such choices for all tastes. We cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

Perfect. We could not recommend Caste Durrow enough as a wedding venue, for a get together, for a nights stay, for any occasion at all! We had our wedding reception in Castle Durrow on 30th December 2015. Everything was just perfect from start to finish. No request was ever too much for Marie Laffan and the rest of the staff at Castle Durrow. Unforgettable, we wish we could do it all over again. Our guests loved Castle Durrow as much as we did. Most of the feedback we got was about how incredible the food was, how beautiful the place was and how friendly and accommodating the staff were. For any couple thinking of booking this venue for their wedding I know cost is always a huge factor. With regards to cost per head at Castle Durrow, it does seem pricey in comparison to other venues, but absolutely EVERYTHING you could need or think of is included in this price, there are no hidden extras, and the quality and standard of the food and service is second to none, they have it all covered. We genuinely had the best day ever and are already planning a trip back for our anniversary.

I cannot recommend Castledurrow as a wedding venue highly enough. From our first visit to Castledurrow we knew we had found our venue. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. They made us feel so comfortable and welcome. The castle itself and the grounds are just perfect. We were blessed with great weather on the day and the photographs turned out amazing! Marie Laffan, the wedding co ordinator was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She was so helpful and supportive throughout the build up to our wedding. Marie was so professional and accommodating. ... nothing was too much trouble! We cannot thank Marie and all the staff enough..... You helped to make our day run so smoothly : ) The amount of positive comments we have received about Castledurrow from friends and family has been unreal. ... everyone is still raving about the place : ) I would highly recommend Castledurrow as a wedding venue.... you would not be disappointed! !

We had our wedding reception in Castle Durrow in March 2014 and our guests are still talking about it! Everything from the surroundings, food, service and the wonderful staff were second to none, the attention to detail was superb and everything ran like clockwork. We would advise anyone seeking a wedding venue to look no further than Castle Durrow! A big thank you to Marie Laffan, who went above and beyond her call of duty and for helping to make our wedding day such a memorable one.

We got married at CD in July 2011 and could not rave enough about the experience. We live in Canada and arranged all the details with Marie via email - she was meticulous, organized, helpful and quick in responding to our many questions. The Castle is SPECTACULAR! After seeing photos online we were even more impressed after seeing the venue in person. The service and food were excellent and of very high quality. The day went as perfectly as we could ever have hoped for - no unpleasant surprises at CD, they are true professionals!

Our son and daughter in law had their wedding reception at this venue. One word suffices to describe the whole event over 2 days – PERFECTION. If you are planning a wedding, and have the budget, book here. The staff, the food, the facilities, the garden – everything was as good as it could be.

I wanted to thank you and say how pleased we were with all aspects of our dealings with the staff in Castle Durrow in arranging “L and E” wedding. We had a wonderful two days in Castle Durrow, far exceeding my expectations. Many thanks for your help, advice and expertise in organising the reception. The happy couple were only delighted with the whole event, Baby “x” was really well looked after by the babysitter. The whole event ran so smoothly, all the staff were so professional and friendly, the Americans were bowled over by the house itself, the atmosphere and the fact that only wedding guests were residents on Monday night. Others commented on the dining room layout, the flowers, the candelabras, the table linen and the service. Irish friends wondered why they had not had their daughters weddings in Durrow!! You had a very contented group. I hope that some of our friends will invite us to another reception in Durrow so that we can enjoy the place once more.

To all the Durrow Team - We couldn’t have wished for a better day- your venue, service & efficiency is second to none. You’re an absolute God-send to the Bride & Groom – particularly to those like us who needed someone/somewhere we could trust to organise the day as we were not around to do so!! You sold it to us from DAY 1. Thank you for all your patience!! Lots of love
