Beautiful wedding venue with lovely grounds. The newly renovated ballroom is spectacular, the staff were attentive and professional and the food was excellent. The hotel offers a private room for the bride, groom and their family which was an excellent opportunity to take a moment before the meal. The bridal suite is amazing and the only fault I can think of is that we didn't have enough time in it. Thanks Kate, John and team for hosting our special day. All our guests were blown away with the hotel. Keep up the great work! Ross and Aoife.

From start to finish we could not fault the Team at Dunboyne Castle and Spa Hotel. As a same-gender couple, we felt comfortable and special on our day. John the Banqueting Manger was incredible on the day and Kate and Denise were always on hand in advance of the day to ensure the event was organised to the exact detail that we both wanted. We genuinely recommend Dunboyne as an event for your Wedding. Thanks you again to all the team from Kabhir and David

A fabulous venue. Our guests were made feel very welcome. The ceremony room was beautifully laid out and well presented with a warm and very romantic atmosphere. All necessary equipment was provided such as audio. The bar service and pre reception drinks where fantastic with plenty of staff on hand ensuring our guests were well catered for. The evening ceremony room was again beautifully laid out. The tables were well presented spacious and again plenty of staff who ensured both the wedding party and guests were well taking care of over the whole evening. Bridal suite was amazing and comfortable and room service provided the following morning was second to none
All and all we were so pleased we chose the venue for our special day. Kate and her team were excellent.

We chose Dunboyne Castle for our summer wedding and we could not be happier with our choice. Kate and the team at Dunboyne were so easy to deal with and always helpful and professional. We decided to postpone our wedding due to COVID restrictions and Kate was especially accommodating, professional, and makes you feel that nothing is too big or too hard for her. Communication was easy and thoroughly dealt with every single time. In the lead up to the day, Kate covered absolutely everything with us and really made the whole experience as stress free as possible.

The venue was fabulous, our guests were very impressed with the venue, and those who stayed over were very impressed with the rooms. All of our guests were very complimentary with regard to the wedding meal, canap?s and evening food. Our guests were all extremely well looked after and had an absolute ball.

We were looked after so well, and there was plenty of staff there on the day and they were all so friendly. The grounds and old house were perfect for photos and the wedding suite was amazing.

We cannot thank Kate, and everyone at Dunboyne Castle enough for hosting the most perfect day for us. It really was everything we could have ever hoped for and more! We look forward to celebrating our anniversary and other occasions here in the future!

Dunboyne Castle was the venue for our October wedding and we simply could not have chosen better. Over the two and a half years between booking our reception and the day itself, Kate and the team at Dunboyne were so easy to deal with. From paying deposits, to picking the dinner menu, to random questions here and there, communication was easy and thoroughly dealt with every single time. In the lead up to the day, not a single thing was missed ? Kate covered absolutely everything with us twice or three times over so nothing was forgotten and really made the whole experience as stress free as possible. The wedding day itself was exactly what we had hoped for. Everything was executed perfectly; from food quality, to guest relations, to staff service...everything! We still have wedding guests coming to us and complimenting Dunboyne for how excellent the food and service were, and how much they enjoyed their stay. The most important thing for us was that our friends and family could enjoy their day; as nothing was too much trouble for the team at Dunboyne, our guests were all extremely well looked after and had an absolute ball. We cannot thank Kate, and everyone at Dunboyne Castle enough for hosting the most perfect day for us. It really was everything we could have ever hoped for and more!

I have emailed to the wedding coordinator a few minor issues, overall everything was fabulous.
We were looked after so well, the food was amazing, plenty of staff and so friendly. All guests have complimented, since then, their satisfaction also.
The grounds for photos are perfect, the wedding suite is amazing and we just loved it all. I couldn't find a thing to say I would change. A wonderful choice for a wedding venue.

Thank you Dunboyne, we look forward to celebrating our anniversary and other occasions here in the future.

We knew immediately that Dunboyne Castle had to be the venue for our big day after attending a wedding fair there. We loved the idea that we would get to enjoy the old Georgian style house but also a modern hotel too. From the very beginning we found all the staff helpful and friendly and made the planning process very easy and stress free. Nothing was too small or too big of a request, they catered to our every need during our stay there. The bridal suite is absolutely fabulous and we were lucky to be able to spend the 2nd night there too. We highly recommend Dunboyne Castle and can?t thank all the staff enough for making our day extra special.

The team at Dunboyne made our wedding day as magical as we could have imagined. We are from the US and decided to do a destination wedding with a small party of friends and family. Being abroad, we had to trust that everything was going to go as planned without much on site prep. Most of our communication was via email, with the exception of one planning trip to visit the venue and meet with Kate, the events coordinator about 7 months ahead of time. She made me feel confident and comfortable throughout the process and made sure all my requests were accommodated without question. From our guests' accommodations and the bridal suite to the incredible grounds, food and recommendation of florist, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. The staff made us feel at ease and our guests feel welcome throughout the process. We can't thank them enough for making our day so easy and stress free.

I cannot praise Dunboyne enough after holding our wedding there in December. Kate, the wedding coordinator, was brilliant, always quick to get back to our emails and sort out any queries we may have had. The room was fabulous, staff were brilliant and the food was excellent, we?re still getting compliments over it all now! I wouldn?t have changed a thing and would definitely recommend Dunboyne for any wedding. We held our second day there too in the cute cellar bar and everyone had a great time, we served finger food and again everyone was really impressed. Delighted with our choice!

Such a magical day. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything ran smoothly. All staff made sure the guests with dietary requirements were looked after correctly. Made us feel so important. Anything I wanted I was allowed to do/have. Eg: sparkle dance floor/sweet table/flower wall.
Such a delightful place and what a wonderful wedding planner I got (Kate) she made it all happen

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Dunboyne Castle for a truly wonderful wedding day. From the moment we got engaged, Kate and her staff were extremely helpful in helping to plan our day. Kate was always very responsive to emails and always accommodated any requests that we had. Kate always put our minds at ease and made the planning part very enjoyable. Every detail was taken care of.
On the day, John was exceptional at his job. He looked after us, our bridal party and all of our guests from start to finish. We didn't have to think about the service or any other details as John was working behind the scenes making sure everything went to plan. John is an asset to the hotel and was invaluable to us on the day and we would like to say a special thank you to John and Kate for making our day so memorable and special for us. I would certainly recommend both of them to any future bride or grooms.

Dunboyne was a pleasure to work alongside in planning our dream day . Kate was so relaxed and easy going , and john on the day of the wedding was just brilliant . He made us so relaxed and made sure all outbreaks requests were addr sees .

The only feedback I could arrange is that the food and drinks on arrival to reception are planned out a little better . It seemed that on the day so many guests didn't even see the food platters going around as with checking in etc . I don't know if that is a portion size issue ? That would be my only feed back , is that many guests seemed to not receive any food on arrival. It is a very long day so I do think the reception food is an important element .

The wedding planning was made so easy by choosing Dunboyne Castle Hotel for our wedding last December! From start to finish everyone we were in contact with was so helpful and more than willing to make all our wishes happen. The location was great too as we got married in Dublin so the journey wasn't too far. Every guest that gave us feedback said the food was out of this world with no issues at all. We could not say we had any complaints about the hotel and would recommend it in a heartbeat!

We got married in Dunboyne Castle this day three weeks ago. We apologise that it's taken me this long to write this but it's been a very busy time!

Anyway, let's start at the very beginning.... The banqueting manager John, is an absolute gentleman and a pleasure to deal with. He is so professional but in a very laid back and easy going manner. He made sure everything was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT for us on our big day - literally nothing was overlooked. He even got me a glass of water before I walked into the ceremony because I got a bit emotional! Our reception went without a single glitch and I can honestly say that was down to John. He was fantastic to our guests and from the photographer, videographer, Entertainent, Chic Events, Dance Floor people, to our band and DJ, every single one of them have come back to us and said that John and the team were not one of the best, but THE BEST they've ever worked with! They have all said the Dunboyne team were unbelievably co-operative and that the venue was amazing... and we feel the same. For that, we THANK YOU!

Next on our list is Elaine, the Front Desk Manager. What a lady! She was so so so lovely to us throughout our stay and literally looked after our every need. Nothing was too big or too small. And even when we returned with the children for a night, Elaine still had her lovely demeanor about her and made sure she came around to say 'Hello'. We'd like to thank Elaine for making our stay truly memorable!

And finally, we'd like to give a big shout to Gaby - for her amazing hospitality, Stacey who looked after our every need at the bar and looked after our entire party in the Cellar Bar the next day and to Jimmy for the absolute best cocktails we've ever had!

We cannot thank you guys enough for EVERYTHING. We will be back to celeberate EVERY anniversary and we will never forget how truly magical you made our day and our stay.

And all of our guests who stayed 2 or 3 nights 100% agree!

From the moment we choose Dunboyne Castle Hotel and Spa as our wedding venue to booking out after the wedding the staff were the friendliest, most professional and helpful we have ever come across in a hotel. Dunboyne helped us with every step of the way and ensured all of the finer details we wanted were put in place. Tom and John were amazing on the day walking us through every aspect and ensuring we were never stressed. All of our guests commented on the hotel and some went as far as to say that the wedding meal was the best they had ever had. We would highly recommend Dunboyne to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding.

Dunboyne Castle, both the venue and staff, far exceeded our already high expectations on our wedding day. Our guests were so impressed with the venue, we got many strong compliments about the quality of the food and accommodation, but mostly the warmth and hospitality of the staff. We really had the best day ever, and Paudy, John and Melanie all were a huge help both in the lead up and on the day. Best weekend ever!

We loved Dunboyne so much. They were genuinely as excited about the planning of our wedding as we were. We received fast responses to queries by email, they accommodated our random requests, they were flexible when we wanted to change things in our package and all the staff ensured the day itself went absolutely perfectly...not one complaint! The service was amazing, the food tasty (and piping hot)and every single member of staff we dealt with were friendly and cheerful. We have been back since and plan many return visits.
This hotel is a true gem and I would urge any bride/groom to book here. At the very least stay over & experience the hotel facilities as I guarantee you fall in love with it.
My only problem.......I can only have one wedding day!

From the minute we sat down with Melanie at our first visit to Dunboyne castle hotel & spa, we were delighted with the service we recieved and the attention to detail was phenomenal. Our very own package was negotiated and Tailored to our requirements and numbers. The lead up to the wedding was made so much easier as any issue that came up was dealt with perfectly. The day itself (weekend to be honest) was one to remember forever and each and every guest raved about the service and facilities.
