Catherine and Michael at Luttrellstown Castle

Summertime

Luttrellstown Castle wedding

Luttrellstown Castle, Dublin, Ireland

An irish castle wedding – it’s the dream isn’t it? Luttrellstown has many things going for it, not least proximity to Dublin, and Dublin airport. It really is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the capital, with plenty of accommodation options in the immediate area also.

When you get married at Luttrellstown you are gifted with complete use of the Castle for the day and night. Those of your guests who are lucky enough to stay (there are about 12 double rooms available to your party) will be wowed by the uniqueness and old-worldliness of each room. This place is over 600 years old!

When we stayed there recently for a family wedding one of the highlights was a late night expedition of discovery through the narrow corridors and interconnecting passages weaving throughout the old house! It really is a fairytale location.

You get a good sense of the grandeur of the castle interior from Catherine and Michael’s fabulous day last summer. They started with a beautiful church service at St Mary’s on Haddington Road, before making their arrival down the avenue in a spectacular Rolls Royce. The entire ground floor was used for the drinks reception – the library, great hall, and the gardens were used on all day.

You can of course hold your ceremony on site in the entrance hall or the great hall itself if you opt for a non-church wedding. The great ballroom is a stunningly elegant room for the banquet meal, with dancing taking place in the adjacent great hall. On the day the Bentley Boys did their thing in spades and rocked everyone’s socks off!
