The Castle Oaks House Hotel and Estate is a Stunning Georgian House built in the late eighteenth century. Our Georgian House is set in 26 acres of beautiful mature gardens & woodlands that lead down to the banks of the River Shannon. An idyllic backdrop for stunning wedding photographs for both summer and winter weddings. The Castle Oaks is on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Castleconnell.

Our restored Georgian Manor House retains many of it original features including the magnificent original sweeping staircase. Our newly renovated banqueting Stradbally Suite still shows the history of the house featuring Stained Glass Windows from the former chapel. The Stradbally Suite as well as our stunningly manicured gardens are also registered venues for civil and humanist ceremonies. 

A warm and welcoming atmosphere awaits each couple and their guests at the Castle Oaks. Only the couples guests reside in the Manor House giving the property an exclusive feel with additional accommodation available for your guests in our courtyard suites. 

The Castle Oaks is renowned for good food having received numerous awards. Our head chef has designed outstanding menus with many choices to suit each taste and budget from fresh local Irish produce.

A delightful country house hotel with great service, friendly staff and attention to detail. You are in safe hands! We hope you will take the opportunity to come and see the Castle Oaks for yourself and meet with our team. Please give us a call and we be delighted to arrange a viewing.

We had our wedding here on 20th June 2019 and loved every moment! Staff were absolutely lovely and so helpful, everyone commented on how beautiful the grounds were and Castle Oaks were always so willing to answer any questions we had. The food was to die for and there was so much of it! Everyone commented on how stuffed they were! Couldn’t have asked for anything more on my wedding day.

We got married at Castle Oaks on the 22 Dec 2018. What can I say! From the very first moment we visited Castle Oaks the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Liam and his team made planning the day so easy and they were so accommodating with our requests. The venue is beautiful and homely. The food for our wedding was exceptional.

We had the best day in the Castle Oaks and could not be happier that we chose to have our ceremony and reception there. The staff and coordinators could not have done more to make our day special in every way. In the lead up to the day, there was always some one to help answer and questions or queries. The food was amazing!! Everyone commented on the friendly and relaxed atmosphere on the night. I would definitely recommend the Castle Oaks as the perfect venue for anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxed, private and special day.

Had an absolutely fantastic day here. Liam and the staff went well out of their way at all times to ensure we had the day we wanted. You'd know that they're all seasoned professionals at putting on weddings. Everyone commented on how good the food was. They were happy to facilitate us in preparing a particular vegetarian dish we wanted on the menu. As a venue itself it's a gorgeous setting and bridal suite was palatial and very comfortable. The reception area had been recently been updated and so acts very well as an area for both the main dinner and afters. In general there's a good flow to the whole place. It also felt quite homely and an intimate setting. Perfect really for ringing in the big day. Would highly recommend to anyone considering their wedding venue.

I couldn't recommend the Castle Oaks enough. From the day we met Deirdre, she made up feel that nothing was too much and we instantly knew we wanted to get married there. Throughout the planning we always felt listened to and never rushed. Irenee in bookings was brilliant to deal with and I didn't make it easy for her! Liam, both during the planning and on the day took all the stress away and ensured we had an amazing experience. Everyone commented on how great the food and service was and this was very important to us. The grounds are beautiful for photos and for wedding guests to enjoy. There are a large amount of rooms with a selection of layouts, great for families. Lastly, when it came to paying the bill there was no hidden surprises. I can promise that you will have an amazing wedding day here just like we did!

From start to finish our day was perfect. Not one hitch! When we first contacted the Castleoaks we were met by warm and friendly service which continued onward through every meeting, email and phone call. The staff, particularly Deirdre and Liam, could not do enough for us. There were specific things we wanted and needed for our day including food arrangements and also personal touches which we wanted to add. These were encouraged by the hotel and nothing seemed too much. Special mention to Liam who was so accommodating and helpful. He was incredibly attentive on the day itself-making sure that we were ok, checking in with us regularly and even at the end of the night making sure I had something to eat at the afters part of the evening. The hotel and its surrounds are just incredible and the exclusiveness is something special. Everyone who was at the hotel that day was our guest. There is ample space for everyone to stay either in the hotel itself or the courtyard suites which are lovely. The food was outstanding and was commented on widely. Seconds and thirds were offered too and the wine seemed to flow endlessly! We are so thrilled that we chose the Castleoaks Hotel. We had close ties to it and it was such a beautiful day. The best compliment we can give is that you made our dreams come true. Thank you! For any brides and grooms out there who are considering the Castleoaks, we hope you will have as amazing day as we did.

We can't speak more highly of the venue and staff. Nothing was too much trouble; our decor/theme was quite unusual and the staff set everything up ahead of the reception, which was a fair bit of work. The meal was excellent on the day and feedback from guests was very complimentary all round. You're in safe hands with Liam, Deirdre and the team.

The entire wedding team in the Castle Oaks House Hotel, led by Liam Barrett, was second to none. From the day we booked our wedding two years ago we have been guided and supported along the way and there was nothing that we requested that they didn't make happen for us. The ballroom is very spacious and comfortably held our 200 guests. The ground of the venue situated on the Shannon are breathtaking and our photographs are stunning ! I would recommend the Castle Oaks to anyone who is looking for a charming country house, caring and attentive staff and amazing food! We love this hotel and will continue to be regular visitors from now on!

Well where to start with the castle Oaks!!! We are 2 months post our day. From driving in the entrance on a wet August bank holiday & no appointment made we fell in love with the place. Liam, the manager had no hesitation in meeting us & showing us around. We loved the old style manor. We had a wedding of 70 & the function room was ideal. We also wanted a humanist ceremony.we had the option of inside or outside, both were fine with us as the function room has long stained windows giving a church vibe. The rooms are spacious & old world. The venue suited us as there was plenty of room/accommodation for our guests. Dealing with Liam & his team was made so easy by them. Being from cork we emailed frequently nearer the date & the staff were so pleasant to deal with. We always got a warm welcome when we could visit. Our requests were never big but never told no or if there would issues. Also alongside the hotel is the scenic river Shannon where we had our photos taken. The food never let us down, great chef, plenty of food on the day, nice & warm. Take Liam's recommendations on the menu when going for your food tasting. He knows his stuff. We had a family issue day before our wedding but the hotel were very accommodating if all had to be postponed, thankfully that didn't happen. Our day went brilliant. Liam, Deirdre & the team were excellent on day that includes gardener, service staff, cleaners etc. Compared to Cork prices it was affordable. The Castle Oaks will always be a special place to us & can't wait to return for our anniversary & hopefully every year.

We had our wedding reception in the Castleoaks in April 2018 and we honestly could not recommend the experience highly enough. I am from the area and was concerned being already familiar with the hotel would make it less special for us. Our experience was completely the opposite. Liam, Deirdre and the whole team were so accommodating and helpful in the run up to the day and the day itself went off without a hitch. We had a ball and wouldn’t have changed a thing. The size of the hotel made it so easy for ourselves and our guests to relax and make ourselves at home. From the minute we went in for the first viewing all the way through to now months later, when we call in, the welcome is amazing. We were lucky enough to get a fabulous sunny day so all our photos from the setting on the river are lovely. Everything is so close by you don’t have to be away from your guests for long which is a big bonus. The Casteloaks has a great reputation for food and it was so good it even managed to take over from the sunny April weather, as being the main talking point of the day. Our guests still mention the amazing food to us now! Having our reception at the Castleoaks was a seamless worry free experience. The team go out of their way to make everything as easy as possible and the whole process was a pleasure. Everything was absolutely perfect, and we couldn’t have asked for more. We were blown away.

Ciara (Events Co-ordinator) and Liam (Hotel Manager) were truly amazing to deal with. I can't speak highly enough of them! They were both so easy going and helpful, nothing was a problem, and they ensured our day went off without a hitch. I really felt that they went above and beyond, co-ordinating the day down to a T, and ensuring that we got the day that we wanted. Super professional and lovely to deal with. The hotel grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and the food was amazing, we received so many compliments from guests. The accomodation was ideal, some of our best pics were in the bridal suite! The Chalets on the property were great for familys attending the wedding with kids. Also, the bookings team were always super accommodating during the many booking revisions they had to process for me :) The only negative I experienced was an unpleasant phone call from the GM, who I found quite pushy and domineering. This was quite at odds with what we had experienced with her wonderful staff. I was quite upset after the call, but thankfully that was my only dealing with her, and it did not tarnish our day in any way.

From the very first contact the Castle Oaks staff were helpful, responsive and professional. Planning the wedding from the UK added a bit of extra stress but Amy and Liam and their colleagues always answered emails quickly and made us feel special. The day itself was exactly how we'd hope it would be and we felt so looked after, with lovely little touches to make it extra special. The food was absolutely delicious - many guests have said it was the best wedding food they've had. And the service was excellent. All in all we have amazing memories of our few days at the Castle Oaks - extra bonus that all my friends and family from the UK could stay onsite in houses/apartments.

I could not have been happier with service we received from Gobnait and all her staff at the Castleoaks. They were a pleasure to deal with on the lead up to the wedding. In particular when I was booking my wedding my main concern was that there was no lift in the hotel as I had a few guests who would have been unable to manage the stairs to the bedrooms. On booking our wedding Gobnait promised that a lift would be installed by the time our wedding day arrived and true to her word the new lift was in operation the day before my wedding. The venue itself was beautiful and has a real homely feel to it. And the food is absolutely to die for!! So many guests commented to us how impressed they were with the meal. I would highly recommend the Castleoaks to anyone planning a wedding. They really do go above and beyond to make the day go perfectly.

Living in Canada, we took a risk and booked the Castle Oaks for our wedding before we had even seen the venue. I've never made a better decision. Liam and the staff were extremely helpful and answered every little question we had from afar in the months and days leading up to the wedding. I'm really grateful to them for putting my mind at ease in that stressful time period, which really speaks to their experience and professionalism. The day itself was amazing - what a beautiful backdrop to get married in, no matter what time of year. With an open fire place, exquisite decor and luxurious carpets, our guests settled in for a mulled wine reception. The Castle Oaks catered easily to our civil ceremony before turning the room around for the meal, which was probably the best I have ever had at a wedding. Everyone complimented the quality of food and nobody could say they went hungry! I cannot recommend highly enough and look forward to visiting again!

Meeting Gobnait initially was great when we were looking around. We were on a flying tour of hotels in Ireland and she fitted into our plans which was very accommodating. It was lovely to have the personal touch and she was there throughout the wedding as well which was very good. Orla and Kathryn were also great and quickly replied to emails no matter how silly the questions were! The day before and the day of and the day after, I was made to feel very special and even the bar staff knew may name. The barbecue the day after was very professional and tasty and I would highly recommend making a few days out of it for anyone planning a wedding. Thank you so much for giving us the best day of our lives.

We had our wedding at the Castle Oaks last weekend and I have to say they did a fantastic job. Everyone was talking about the level of service they received. We had 200 at our wedding and it went like clockwork. Our guests told us that the quality of the food and it's presentation was the nicest they ever got at a wedding. The general manager, Pádraig Nolan and the banqueting manager, Jamie Long could not do enough for us and our guests. Any wish I had was carried out to the last and their attention to detail was second to none. A huge thank you for contributing to what was undoubtedly the best day of our lives.

If you are considering the Castle Oaks House hotel, then go for it, you will not be disappointed! They did everything they could to make our day as wonderful as it could be. Despite having a relatively small wedding (50 people) we were made to feel special from day one - something that set the Castle Oaks apart from the other hotels in the region. The staff at the Castle Oaks were patient with our hundred and one questions, and helped us to make informed decisions about the day. The day itself was magical: the grounds are stunning, so the photos are second to none. The team at the hotel had set up everything the way we wanted it. The food was top class with plenty of it. Our foodie friends could not stop raving about how good everything tasted.  Every single one of our guests has complimented the rooms since, from those who spent a week in their self-catering accommodation to the jet-setters who could only stay one night.  So, all in all - a wonderful location, and one that we would highly recommend!

We got married on July 8th this year, and we have nothing but the highest of praise for the reception we received from the Castle Oaks hotel and all the staff. Padraig and Jamie made us feel at home and organised our big day and all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. The food served was excellent and the service was of the very highest standard. Most of all , it was the friendliness of all the staff that made our big day such a memorable one. To Padraig and all the staff at the Castle Oaks Thank you.

Many of our friends advised that it was the best wedding that they have ever attended and were very complementary of the hotel, the staff and the food. Many thanks need to go to all of the staff and especially Terri & Padraig for helping making the day a great success.

I got married in Castleconnell on 5th June 2010 and had my reception at the Castle Oaks. The location was perfect. Many of our guests booked into the hotel and walked to the church not having to worry about parking. The location is splendid, on the banks of the river Shannon with lovely mature trees and gardens which meant we did not have to travel elsewhere for the photographs. The hotel staff assisted with all the wedding planning, including but not limited to advising on bands, flowers, decor, etc and even sent us weekly updates on which of our guests had booked in. The reception room was decorated beautifully on the day, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and the service was excellent. All of our guests were delighted with the day and night (the residents bar was enjoyed by all and didn’t close too early). The dinner, evening buffet and breakfast was delicious. We got many compliments from our guests but credit was due to the hotel staff - great job Padraig & all at the Castle Oaks. Thanks for making our day so special.

We got married in the Castle Oaks on the 16th of April 2010, we cannot say enough good things about the hotel and the way we and our guests were treated by the staff at the castle oaks, Terri, the wedding organiser, Padraig, the manager, receptionist, bar and waiting staff, all made every effort to ensure that every thing went according to plan, If you want to stay in a hotel in a superb location, set in lovely grounds, were the customer still comes first then the Castleoaks is definitely the place, food is superb, with plenty of it, accommodation is first class, nothing was too much trouble. Our thanks to all at the Castle Oaks

The staff was so courteous and considerate and all of the guests remarked on the quality and generous portions of food. Particular attention was paid to me as I do not eat wheat or dairy and I was asked at each course if the food was all right for me and if I would like anything else. Overall the experience of having my daughters wedding reception in Castleoaks Hotel was a joyful and happy one and our visitors from Wales enjoyed themselves very much.

Say thank you for everything you did to help organise our wedding celebrations in the Castleoaks, both leading up to and on 3rd January itself. Everyone was raving about the food, the service and the general atmosphere in the hotel. Many many thanks to you and everyone else there for making it so special. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Best regards,

It was great – the Castle Oaks Hotel did a fantastic job: they had it decorated beautifully – thet had a harpist playing as everyone entered the hotel. It’s an old Georgian house so it has beautiful architecture and there’s a lovely atmosphere. The hotel staff were fantastic, the food was gorgeous. There was no hassle, there was no panic, and compared to the week leading up to it, it actually all went grand. It’s true what the say – on the day, it just flows.

On behalf of Patrick and myself I would like to say a massive thank you to you and all the staff of the hotel for making our wedding day such a spectacular and magical day. The days before hand and on the special day nothing was a bother and it all went without a hitch and ran perfectly for us and everybody involved in the wedding. The service, the food, everything and yourself and your fellow colleagues were fabulous and I would highly recommend you and your team to many of our friends and family who are getting married."
