We had our wedding reception at Finnstown Castle Hotel on 8th March 2019 and also celebrated Day 2 of our wedding at Jim's bar in Finnstown. Leading up to our wedding, Katie and the wedding team at Finnstown were a great help to us and nothing seemed like too much trouble for them to help make our day special. The reception rooms are a great size and were perfect for our number of guests. The food was excellent - many of our guests complimented the food on both days and the service was also very good. The grounds at Finnstown are beautiful and great for our wedding photos. We also love the long driveway up to Finnstown Castle. It was the perfect choice for our wedding.

We had an amazing day in Finnstown for our wedding. Planning was smoothless and mostly done from London where were living. Katie went above and beyond to ensure everything was perfect. Guests are still raving about the food and how seamless the day was.

A massive thank you to you and the team at Finnstown for a fantastic weekend! Between Katie, Cesar, Jackie, Rona and the crew, we felt so well looked after. There were a number of pleasant surprises, from simple things like formatted layouts for our table numbers to an extra complimentary room for the wedding party. A number of our guests commented on how smooth everything went, and a few said the beef was the best they'd ever had. All the staff from the moment we arrived until we left on Monday morning were so friendly and accommodating. Couple all the above with the prime location close to Dublin and the M50, yet wonderfully peaceful surroundings, and Finnstown was a perfect venue for our wedding.

Barry and I had our spiritual ceremony and reception at Finnstown Castle Hotel in Dublin. We had a ceremony before the reception and our spiritualist was Graham Barrett. From the early days of planning to the lead up to our wedding we found our spiritualist Graham to be so helpful and supportive. Any requests we had were not a problem and he was very good to give advice. The team at Finnstown Castle were excellent under the leadership of Tracey. Our guests were amazed by the venue, the hospitality, the meal and the care that was given to them. They danced the night away to Simon Casey and a great day was had by all.

Myself and my hubby got married at Finnstown on the 29th September this year (2018) We honestly could not have picked a better place to have our wedding as the staff there are truly amazing especially Kimberly who was always on hand to deal with any questions or problems I had no matter what it was she made my life easier,and made myself,my husband feel special from the moment we met with her...Also ceaser who deserves a special thank you for organising our guests and wedding meal so professionally that everything ran so smoothly. Our experience in Finnstown was a memorable day for us which we will treasure forever and would highly recommend to anyone to have their wedding there.

Finnstown Castle is a beautiful location for weddings...its so close to the city yet away from the hustle. All I had to do was share my plans for the special day and they took care of the rest. It went exactly as planned if not better. The guests enjoyed the venue, food (massive portions) and flowing wine, not to forget the camera friendly peacocks! We stayed on for a week and so did many guests who flew over and got excellent room rates and the service was brilliant. If you are planning your wedding, you need to enjoy that journey. We had a great one because we could trust their service, vision, experience :)
Review by
I would highly recommend any couple to get married here. This venue went above and beyond for us on the lead up and on the wedding day itself trust me you will not be disappointed.

When we were looking at hotels for our wedding we were attracted to Finnstown Castle based on the great reviews it got. From the day we came to look at their venue we were in no doubt this was the place where we wanted to celebrate our wedding. Having been to a number of weddings over the years, there were a number of things that stood out leading up to the night and indeed the night itself: The staff were all exceptionally friendly from the bar and restaurant staff, receptionists, to the night managers; Melanie and Emma, and of course the Wedding Co-ordinators; Tracey and Kimberly. Everyone was so helpful, no job was too big or too small, and everyone really seemed to enjoy working there which says a lot. As a wedding venue, there are a couple of things which make Finnstown Castle truly unique. Firstly although it's located just outside Dublin (for convenience), the grounds expand in such a way that it has a lovely country feel to it, with free roaming peacocks and other animals on site for great photos. The wedding reception is annexed off the main building which separates it nicely from other hotel guests, with its own bar area and kitchen and therefore a very quick service. Other aspects such as catering, hospitality and professionalism were everything expected from a four star hotel. Thank you all for everything we couldn’t have asked for more.

Orlagh & James, It was our absolute pleasure to host your wedding here at Finnstown Castle Hotel, it was such a beautiful day. Hope to see you both soon again. Enjoy your honeymoon Tracey
Review by
Fantastic venue. We were really well looked after from start to finish. The wedding team are lovely to deal with and on the day everything flowed flawlessly. We had our ceremony outside with our musician and our DJ based outside as the gardens are beautiful. We did our own table plan and had last minute 'sun station' which included suncream, fans, sunglasses etc as it was in the middle of a heatwave, and the hotel staff just took all this off our hands and set it up for our guests no problem. People are still talking about how amazing the food was and how lovely all the staff were. If anyone is thinking about this venue for their wedding I would urge them to book!

Finnstown Castle couldn't do enough for us it was 5 star treatment all the way ????????
Review by
We had a summer wedding. 2days before the wedding we changed our minds and decided to have the civil ceremony outside. Which was no problem for them. Everything was perfect. We have had so many people compliment the venue some of which have booked events with Finnstown. Anyone who chooses Finnstown will not be disappointed.

Words cannot describe how lovely Elaine and Jason were when we were planning our wedding back in May. They listened to everything that we desired for our big day and made sure everything went to plan. We were extremely happy with the service and would highly recommend Finnstown Castle.

Can't believe its nearly been a year since our 'I do's'. Elaine our wedding planner was fantastic as was Romy her predecessor. But Jason was out of this world, we had a 2 day event and he was outstanding both days. Finnstown itself is beautiful and it was a fantastic setting for our special day! I'm still dreaming about our lemon tarte, the food was unbelievable. Massive thank you to every person who made our weekend perfect.

My wedding day at Finnstown was perfect!

We got married there last September and from the moment we walked in to the wedding fair until our wedding Day Romy and the team were amazing. Any enquiries we had were answered straight away even if we rang and the team weren't available they got back to us within hours. Nothing was to much trouble. We actually felt like friends with everyone. The day itself was just amazing Jason and the team that were working went above and beyond for us. The food was excellent everyone said so and our guests loved every bit of it. We couldn't ask for better I would recommend it to anyone we just loved it and the whole experience was stress free thanks to Romy and her amazing team. I can't say enough how amazing it is.

Review by
We got married in Finnstown on 4th August. I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives. Romy made the run up go smoothly and Jason made the big day go seamlessly. Nothing could have gone better. We stayed for a couple of nights before and after as we live in London and all staff knew who we were and made us feel very special despite the fact that they had 6 other weddings that week! I would 100% recommend Finnstown Castle hotel and from our guests feedback, they would too!
Review by
Really friendly and professional. Created a magical day for my Husband and myself loved every moment from start to finish. They even accommodated us with prosseco behind closes doors as parents don't know I drink. They are super understanding and really helpful. Would highly recommend. The only problem I had was with one reception who had a horrible attitude but this does not reflect the wedding organiser or coordinator.

We had our wedding reception in Finnstown in December 2015. The hotel itself is beautiful and has great grounds for photos. Romy, the wedding coordinator, was brilliant in the lead up to the wedding and listened to and answered all our questions. The staff were fantastic on the day in particular Romy and Jason who were the main coordinators on the day. The food was fantastic which many of our friends and families have mentioned to us. I would recommend Finnstown to anyone looking to hold an event or wedding.

We were blown away by the service, friendliness and helpfulness or every single member of staff in Finnstown. We had an amazing day and were treated like royalty every time we went into the hotel in the build up. They have excellent packages with everything included so there was no need to haggle. Their menu choices were incredible and they were so accommodating to all the different ideas as to how we wanted the room set up. All of our guests were extremely impressed with the food and the grounds and function room as well. We would definitely recommend Finnstown to any couple planning their wedding.

We held our wedding ceremony in Finnstown last Friday. It was awesome. Everything we asked for in the run up to the wedding was delivered - and more. The grounds were immaculate and ideal for beautiful photos. The weather was stunning in the afternoon meaning that we could have our drinks reception outside. The food at the reception was really good. We loved every minute of our day. During the buildup the staff we worked with were really helpful and responded to all emails and queries in a professional and prompt manner. Overall it was WOW. Thanks Finnstown.

We couldn't have been happier with the organisation of our wedding. Romy was our wedding coordinator and she was so lovely and efficient on the build up to the day. On the day itself we were delighted with how everything went. The room looked beautiful and the food was very tasty. The staff on the day were great and nothing was too much trouble. Finnstown is a beautiful venue for wedding photographs. We had a BBQ the next day and the food was top notch. I would highly recommend Finnstown as a wedding venue.

We found this hotel prefect for out needs, we had around 60 guests flying in for the weekend and everyone has commentated on how nice the hotel was and how friendly the staff where. There was no panic in the day even when we left the legal papers at home. I honestly can say that I would not change anytime about our special day at Finnstown. We have been back and stayed and it brings back great memories!

We didn't get what we paid for and numerous things went wrong shame as its a really beautiful venue. We didn't get any money compensated.

We had a fabulous wedding day at Finnstown. Romy,Jason and all the staff on duty were very helpful and accommodating to all our needs. The function room was great and ticked all the boxes in size, dancefloor location and bar on site. The gardens were so well maintained and picturesque and we got lucky with some great weather to make our grand entrance. We loved the fact that the venue was like being in the countryside although it was just 20 mins from Dublin city centre in Lucan. It was great being able to give people the option of accommodation on site and there was plenty of it. The food and drink all went down a treat and our wedding band did an amazing job. We got thumbs up from all our guests on what a great day and venue it was. Thanks again to everyone at Finnstown who made our wedding day extra special. Sinead & Johnny

Review by
Finnstown Castle stood out for us when we were searching for wedding venues due to the friendliness and high degree of professionalism exhibited by their staff. While very accommodating, I'd greatly recommend their approach in offering a single standard package rather than putting add-ons for every option. We were looking for a good deal, of course, but knowing we were getting a good deal but not having to cut-back on anything removed a lot of potential sources for stress.

Fabulous venue with lovely food, very friendly & helpful staff.

Hi, Got married here June 2014. I can't say enough about this hotel. Our wedding day was amazing. Food, grounds and staff are wonderfull. Mary the wedding co-ordinator was brilliant, didn't have to worry about anything on the day. We had a civil ceremony at the hotel which was beautiful and the grounds are great for photographs. Food was the highest quality and the service was brilliant. Fantastic venue and would recommend this to all my friends.

“Finnstown House - We had our reception in Finnstown House and were delighted with everything about it. Found Edwina great to deal with. The food was excellent and everybody commented on it and basically they just looked after making sure everything went smoothly when we were having a good time which I really think is all you can ask for! Also the grounds are beautiful for photos without having to go far away from guests which was great. We also stayed the next night and had a small family meal and found the whole thing so relaxing as all the staff are so friendly and helpful.”
