Veronica, Louise and the entire team made planning our wedding the smoothest experience.
Attention to detail and little touches are important to us and even more so as we had an intimate family occasion.
From venue decor, service and food everything was first class and We would happily recommend this venue to anyone planning their special occasion

We did the ceremony and dining & wedding party at Wrights Findlater. It was perfect. We rented the third floor with the rooftop for the ceremony and the second floor for dining & party. The team did a great job with the decoration for of the ceremony room, we liked the theme with white roses. The room itself is nice and offers a great view of Howth. Our best wedding photos were taken in the ceremony room and rooftop terrace. The guests were welcomed with drinks and taken care of before and after the ceremony. After the ceremony we went to the second floor for dining. The food was excellent. We appreciate the customised menu. We had a small wedding with 20 gusts including us in total. It is great that there is no minimum number required. We also had plenty of space for dancing. During the entire day, from arrival of the guests until the end, the waiter did an excellent job. Fast service, attention to detail and a great job with serving the wedding cake. Before finding Wrights Findlater I contacted around 50 different venues in Dublin and most of them are overpriced or not flexible. So I am very happy about the value I got from Wrights Findlater for a fair price. I highly recommend Wrights Findlater for weddings.

The team in Wright's Findlater really helped us to have the perfect wedding reception! We had more of an intimate wedding, but the team really helped us to still feel like we weren't missing out on any details. We found it really easy to work with the team to plan out what we wanted and they helped us make sure we didn't forget any details. All of the staff we really lovely on the day and all of our guests had a great time. And hats off to the chef's, all of our friends and family have had nonstop comments on how exquisite the food was!

We recently had our wedding party reception in the sky bar and I cannot express how amazing the staff in Findlaters were. I had made a plan and told the staff what I wanted for our party and they went above and beyond. From liasing with Louise from the start who went out of her way to ensure i got exactly what i wanted and had as little worry as possible. The staff decorated the room exactly how I wanted and MORE , they made such a fuss about us on our arrival . The food was incredible . The atmosphere was just so much fun. They recommended our entertainment for the night , and Glyn could not have been a better MC/Dj. Aoife and the bar staff was incredible and so kind. The manager was super helpful and just made the night all about us. We honestly had THE BEST night of our lives and our guests have said the same since. I would 100% recommend Findlaters for any event . The staff are amazing. I was able to leave everything in their hands the morning of my wedding and enjoy my ceremony , and when I arrived to the reception, WOW. Words cannot express how thankful we are to them all.

We were totally blown away with our wedding at Wrights - the room looked incredible. We couldn?t believe the attention to detail. Our friends and family haven?t stopped talking about the food as well - beef was incredible and the bride loved the risotto! Above all else, the communication between Louise and the rest of the Wrights team made planning a wedding from overseas SO easy. We can?t recommend Wrights enough and we hope that other Canadians looking to get married in Ireland consider Wrights for their special day! Thanks so much guys!

Myself and my wife Derya booked wrights of Howth for a small family wedding of 35 guests, from the start of the planning to the last guest leaving, the staff were fantastic, especially our go to person Louise, she was amazing. The food was lovely as most of our guests ordered from the seafood menu, because of Wrights reputation with seafood and we were not disappointed, it was very fresh and cooked to perfection.
All through the day Louise kept on checking in on my wife and myself to make sure everything was up to standard, I would honestly say that they went above and beyond for us . I never give five star reviews but this time I felt that all that was done that day truly deserved five stars and if I could I would of given more. My sincere thanks to Louise and her staff, they were magnificent on the day.

We could not recommend this venue highly enough. Every person we dealt with there was absolutely excellent. Special mention for Sergiu, the manager, he was fantastic. The food was outstanding, the decor was beautiful and the drinks were served promptly and courteously. And the views over Howth were gorgeous

We booked our wedding with Veronica from Wrights Findlaters only 7 days before our wedding. She was very efficient and would get back to me no matter what time and made the whole thing stress free even with such short notice. The staff on the day were amazing and couldn't do enough. Food was beautiful and couldn't be faulted. Would highly recommend and the location for your photos is amazing!!!

Veronica and Alan were so accommodating from day one. They got back to me immediately on every request and always went above and beyond. We initially booked for a small wedding of 60. This changed over time to a sit down meal for 100 people and an after party for 140. The guests have raved about it ever since. ?Best venue and wedding in a long time?. Wedding felt very intimate. Staff could not do enough. Food was unbelievable. I highly recommend the lemon sole, the best fish I have ever had. Alan?s eye for detail was perfection and his warmth and kindness was endless. We could not have picked a better venue. Honestly the most intimate setting with the most accomadating team of staff we could have wished for.

We had our wedding at Findlaters Howth recently and what an amazing day we had! From the very beginning the team at Findlaters made our wedding plans all come together so easily. When we were looking for a venue we wanted something different from the norm and that's exactly what we got. The day was a relaxed fun day with a summer time barbeque. The view from the restaurant was amazing and the the layout of the Skybar was perfect for us to dance till late! Thank you to all the staff at Findlaters for making our day so special, especially Veronica and Alan.

Absolutely delighted with the venue (Skybar for the ceremony and the party) and everyone at Findlater who helped making our day special. We got excellent offer and great food options - our guests keep thanking us for the delicious meals they got! Also Veronica and Alan were super helpful, Alan was there the whole day and took his part in decorating and making sure everything goes smoothly. Close proximity to the sea made our summer wedding photoshoot just tropical as well. We call it a perfect wedding, and are absolutely strongly recommend Findlater and its team to anyone planning the best day of their lives.

We are just coming down from the most amazing day for our wedding at the anglers rest. From the day of first plans to last sat the service we got was extraordinary. Noleen helped us with every aspect of the day. The venue is so intimate and beautiful. I have had so many people call me to say they have never been at a more beautiful venue. The comments about the food are endless. We had the most amazing beef, salmon, duck and black pudding. I cannot put into words how happy we are to have chosen the anglers rest.

Last month I had my wedding in Findlaters and I was not disappointed. After looking at countless amounts of venues I found Findlater 9 months before my wedding day. The venue was a perfect size for my intimate wedding. It is situated in the picturesque setting of Howth with Howth harbor making a beautiful backdrop for my wedding photographs. The staff were extremely attentive throughout the day without hovering and the food was amazing which was echoed by all my guests. All my guests complimented me on the choice of my venue! Everyone had a superb day and we danced into the early hours of the morning. I had a my post wedding barbecue in The Bloody Stream across the road the next day which was also amazing. Thanks to all the staff for a great day had by all

First may I say how no one thought of this little gem in north Dublin escapes me. We approached
the venue and spoke with Suzanne the events manager, who was very down to earth and
listened to our needs regarding our wedding.it was agreed that Findlaters would host its first
official wedding. During our initial contacts with the venue we met with max the chef and
Lorraine duty manager and they were very attentive. We had a tasting menu and max was
excellent regarding the food and wine choices, Suzanne kept in constant contact and made the
venue side of things nice and easy. On the day the red carpet and lights where amazing. The
Christmas d?cor was in theme with our wedding colours. The staff where very professional and
warm to the guests on the day, the food was second to none, and that was the feedback of all the
guests. The venue was so well prepared the restaurant was turned in to a perfect wedding
function room, it felt intimate and bright. Throughout the meal the service was excellent as was
the food; this is why we choose an award winning food venue over a hotel. The sky bar was
wonderful and unique for the welcome toast, with the views over the harbour creating a great
atmosphere. In the evening, the cutting of the cake was upstairs in the sky bar and it was great to
have a separate space from where we had our meal for the first dance, we had a great band to
which the venue accommodated. The Dj was attentive and very professional, very detailed in
music we wanted. To round up all the money can?t improve on such a quality venue, in such a
location with a castle, harbours, islands, and a beautiful coast. We really hope others will have
the chance to experience their happy day at this magical venue!!
