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.

I want to post a recommendation for my venue: the Castle Oaks in Castleconnell, Limerick. I had my full wedding including spiritual ceremony there this day last week. I knew from dealing with Martina the wedding coordinator all along, that they were going to be amazing but they exceeded all my expectations. First of all in the lead up to the wedding Martina was so easy to deal with, I thought I was surely driving her insane at one or two points but she never minded me contacting her for things big or small and took note of everything. I had planned with the bridal party the day before on how things would go for walking up the aisle etc, but I arrived a nervous wreck. I was met by 3 or 4 members of staff including the general manager, they made me feel really relaxed and in good hands and then lined us up in order, told each of us ie kids, bridesmaids, me.. when to start walking up the aisle, and they then got down and fixed my veil for me when it was my turn. I was so impressed and relieved at how smooth they made it all. Everyone was accommodated for so well including my kids and the other kids at the wedding, who were having a magician party in another room with their babysitter during the meal and were well looked after by staff. I didn't have to worry about a single thing all day. Food was amazing and plentiful and the venue is just beautiful for photos. There are two waitresses who are twins and so many people in the days after the wedding told me how lovely they were to them, they are two gems and a massive credit to the hotel. You could not be disappointed with this venue, I give it a full 10/10

Thank you for making my wedding day better than I ever could have hoped for. The team at Castle Oaks House Hotel made us and our guest feel very welcome and they were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. They listened to what we wanted and brought it all to life. A special thanks to the wedding coordinator Martina and manger Des. The food was delicious, the reception and dining areas were beautifully decorated and the staff were so kind and helpful. My family and friends are still talking about how fantastic the day was. Everything was so organised and professional that the day/ night went very smooth. It also has the most picturesque forest over looking the river Shannon to take pictures in. If you are planning your wedding, I would highly recommend the Castle Oaks House Hotel. You won’t regret it! I have already rebooked a stay for our 1st anniversary. Thank you to the team at Castle Oaks House

My son Stephen and his beautiful wife Jade had their wedding reception at the Castle Oaks House Hotel and it was so special to have it in your beautiful hotel. The welcome I felt as the mother of the groom the evening before when we dropped overt some things was so reassuring . Siobhan at the front desk was so lovely. You made us feel so welcome. The day of the wedding was the best I could have wished for, for Stephen and Jade and it was made extra special by having their reception in your hotel. Everything from the kindness of the staff towards everyone and how they went over and above to make us all feel that our wedding reception was so special to them also meant so much to us. I would like to thank the Chef and the kitchen staff as the meal at the reception was served quickly, hot and lots to eat. The staff that were serving us were kind attentive and very pleasant. The room we had our reception in was beautifully decorated and comfortable. Anything we asked for was no problem to the staff. I would like to thank Maggie and Josephine and the team of staff that served us our meal. We had our second day downstairs and here again it was so cosy and private for our friends and family. I would like to thank Cathal for being so nice to us as he served behind the bar. I would especially like to personally thank the manager Des for making us as a family and all our guests feel so welcome at the hotel. You went over and above for to make our wedding the best day we could have wanted. I felt your kindness towards Jade and Stephen the bride and groom and I know they are so so happy with choosing the Castle Oaks Hotel for their reception. We would highly recommend this hotel to other couples when choosing your wedding venue. Anne

We would highly recommend the Castle Oaks to any couple for their wedding. The venue is stunning. From the exceptionally well maintained grounds sitting on the banks of the Shannon to the iconic staircase in the country house and the beautiful stained glass windows in the ball room (that are from the original convent), this venue will blow you away. The service that you will get as soon as you walk in the door is top class. Martina the wedding coordinator is exceptional. She was a pleasure to deal with. She was very approachable and gave us great peace of mind that the Castle Oaks would have everything perfect on the day, which they did. On the day itself Des, Josephine and Margaret, to name a few couldn't done enough for everyone. Our photographs took longer than expected. The meal was delayed by 30 minutes as a result and they facilitated our late change in plan without any issue. The food provided for the reception and the meal was delicious and very well presented. More than one guest commented on how generous with the wine they were too! The Castle Oaks House Hotel played a huge part in our wedding day. We had an amazing day and are extremely grateful to all of the hotel staff. Thank you!!

Oh my, we cannot sing the praises any higher for the service the hotel provided last Friday for our wedding. From Martina the wedding organisers skills to Des the manager at our wedding reception, he was unflappable, friendly and professional at all times. The castleoaks are exceptional at what they do. At lunchtime all staff and a special mention to the twins were just super ensuring everyone comfortable and enough of everything. Thankyou all for ensuring our special day was the best it could be, your attention to detail is second to none. Kind regards Mr and Mrs Hurley

We got married on the 9th September 2022. Castle Oaks was the first venue we saw and we fell in love. The warm and welcoming atmosphere had us sold immediately. The amazing grounds made for wonderful photos. The hotel were an absolute pleasure to deal with and we are so happy with our decision. Martina, Maggie, Dez and all of the staff were amazing. Nothing was ever too much. One of our suppliers cancelled last minute and the hotel provided everything they could to help us, Dez stepped in immediately. Everyone complimented us on the venue and people were absolutely delighted with the service. The food was outstanding and everyone raved about the meal. The chefs and the kitchen staff were absolutely lovely and even provided a meal for our dog on the day. The waiting staff were exceptional and we can not thank them enough. From beginning to end, Castle Oaks went above and beyond and we couldn’t have asked for more. We had the most amazing day and it’s definitely one we will never forget!

We had our wedding at the Castle Oaks in August this year and I cannot recommend this venue enough. We were blessed with the most beautiful weather on the day and between the gardens and the woodland with the river we could not have gotten more beautiful pictures. Wonderful seating areas outside where our guests spent a majority of the time with the great weather. The staff, they’re professionalism and standard of service was second to none. Nothing was too much to ask for and there was always someone on hand for anything we needed. A huge thank you to Des and Teresa on the day, the day wouldn’t have gone as smoothly without you both and to Martina for all the organisation throughout. Correspondence with the hotel is so efficient. There was a huge selection of food and drinks on arrival which we got amazing feedback from our guests on and even greater feedback on the meal that evening which was just beautiful. Your guests will definitely not leave hungry!! Overall an amazing venue with amazing food and staff and we will definitely be back again.

My husband and I recently tied the knot at Castle Oaks Hotel and we couldn't have been happier with the day. After doing a lot of research on venue options throughout Limerick and Clare, Castle Oaks is a rare gem that offers the character and romantic style of a country house without the extortionate price tag. The value for money surpassed any other venue we came across and the service was excellent. From start to finish, the staff were extremely helpful and their calm and experienced manner made planning our wedding a pleasure. While the country house and gardens offered the perfect backdrop to our Humanist service and reception, we were given creative license to add a bit of our own personality to the space, with the venue being nothing but accommodating for our wedding vision! Our big day was everything we hoped for and our guests enjoyed the party just as much as we did. In fact, a couple who attended the wedding booked Castle Oaks for their own wedding! Another bonus is that there is plenty of accommodation on site and it's easily accessed from Limerick City and the M7 Motorway. We would definitely recommend Castle Oaks to any couple looking for a special venue in Limerick.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

The food was exactly as we tasted when we did the food tasting and people are still raving about it and I can't believe everyone was offered seconds too! Not a chance of anyone going hungry! Jamie was fantastic, completely professional, but lovely with it. Nothing was too much trouble. Even when I messed up on the seating plans, he sorted it all out and it all went without a hitch! 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.

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!

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,
Hilda Coughlan and Marc Walsh married in August 2007.

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."
