Wedding Testimonials

Arlene & Darren Gately - 29.12.20


Myself and my husband, Darren booked Castle Dargan Hotel for our wedding well over a year ago. First date was to be 30th Oct 2020, due to Covid we had to change date. The original plan C was 9th January 2021, but new restrictions were brought in on Dec 22nd and we made a quick move to December 29th 2020 as we knew we wanted to get married. We started our wedding planning journey with the fabulous Tanya, then met the lovely Caroline and finally it was the super Michelle who was there with us in the end and who helped us pull it off (along with all the other amazing staff at Castle Dargan) in less than 7 days! Stressful - YES! But Michelle and the staff and all our suppliers could not have done more to help us have the perfect day. We held the ceremony in the Coach Room and it was lovely, only 25 guests allowed - different to what we had planned but so intimate and special. We had our drinks reception in the conservatory restaurant with our lovely Gin bar and garnishes of choice. Michelle and her team transformed the Coach Room into a beautiful dining experience with round tables, Chiavari chairs, table centre pieces and beautiful lighting and music to create a gorgeous atmosphere for our wedding dinner. The food was excellent, service was outstanding, staff were so friendly and each table was checked out numerous times to ensure they had enough of everything. Patrick was the duty manager that night and he was always flying around if anything was needed and there on hand to help. I cannot thank Michelle and all the staff enough for pulling out all the stops in such a short few days and making our day so so special. Thank you. I couldn’t recommend Castle Dargan enough for any function.

We got married in Castle Dargan on the 28th of December 2019. It was an unforgettable day/night and we would like to thank all the outstanding members of staff (reception, bar, waiters, waitresses, management) for the fantastic service you provided. To name just one though, Tanya the wedding coordinator couldn’t do enough for us and made sure every little detail was taken care of. From the moment we booked to our menu tasting to the finer last-minute details & finally to the big day everything was excellent. The food tasted fantastic, it was hot, there was loads on the plate and everything ran on time, which we loved & also our guests.Any extras we wanted was no problem. The room was dressed superbly. The surroundings of castle Dargan are breath taking. Our guests were very pleased with all aspects not to mind ourselves and for that we thank you. We can’t wait to go back and have a relaxing break. From the new Mr & Mrs Egan

The whole day went fabulous! A day I will never forget! Tanya was great and very helpful and Mary was great at helping me sort the rooms. It’s a fabulous location for any event especially weddings. Food was excellent. And there is great opportunities for photos.



Ciara & Patrick Geoghegan - 14.06.19

My husband and I got married in Castle Dargan Resort in June 2019. We absolutely loved it and had an amazing day. We had our afterparty there also and the whole weekend was fantastic! The staff couldn’t do enough for us and were always very friendly. Our guests had a great time and loved the hotel too. We are both from Mayo and our family told us they loved the whole weekend being in the hotel for the weekend and found it very relaxing. My husband and I loved the hotel from the moment we walked into it over a year and a half ago and we were so happy to have our Big Day there. Tanya was so helpful and always quick in replying to any queries we had.


Elaine Hannon & Mark McKeon - 30.11.18

From the moment we went to meet Tanya, our wedding co-ordinator she could not do enough for us. Nothing was ever a problem. Any questions or queries we had whether it was by email or telephone was responded to almost immediately. Even a couple of emails that we would have sent Tanya was quick to pick up the phone to us and chat to make sure we were happy with everything!! Also we had a few guest who were coeliac and there was alternatives that they could have from scones etc at the reception when we arrived at hotel first right through to the sandwiches in the residence bar when the day/night was over. No request was ever a problem!! Mary in reservations was also so helpful. Any changing about on rooms Mary never made it a problem and worked it perfectly out to make sure all our guests were happy. Two days before our big day we went to hotel to drop off a few bits and met with Tanya when we went through the details one last time which Tanya had perfectly put together. Leaving the hotel that evening we had full faith that all was going to go smooth!! We can honestly say our wedding day was amazing in Castle Dargan. The hospitality, staff, food and service was of top quality! So many of our guests commented on the hotel, the fantastic meal and accommodation. There was no delays at any stage which meant we got to enjoy the night of dancing to the full. We were delighted that our guests enjoyed the day just as much as we did!! Could not recommend Tanya, Mary and all at Castle Dargan enough. They made our day the best we could ever have imagined for!!


Orla McGourty & Stephen McDermott - 19.10.18

Tanya and the team at the Castle Dargan are exceptional. They were so helpful to us from start to finish. We had regular touch points with Tanya and this helped in having our room setup beautifully and they ensured that there was no stone unturned on the day. The customer service provided was excellent from start to finish and we were treated like royalty the night of our food tasting. The food was exceptional throughout the whole group of 220 people and the staff were phenomenal. Tanya was unable to be there on the day but the rest of the team were brilliant. People still talk about how good our wedding day was and the brilliant food and atmosphere. If you are looking for a beautiful, professional venue that is also reasonable then this is one of the best venues ever. The Castle Dargan will always hold a special place in our hearts due to the best day ever!


Jeni Carr & Steven O'Gara – 01.09.18

We had the most amazing day at Castle Dargan for our wedding. We wouldn't change a single thing! All the staff were amazing. Tanya and Mary were brilliant in the run up to the wedding, always being very quick to reply to emails, calls or questions. Tanya just put us so completely at ease, it’s so clear that she knows exactly what she’s doing it takes so much stress away because we just knew she would make sure everything was perfect and it really was. Colm also looked after us on the day and he was great too and a special mention for Sean, the night porter, he really went above and beyond for us. The ballroom is stunning, the views are amazing and there was the most beautiful sunset while we were finishing dinner, I'll never forget it. The food was amazing, we've had so many people say since that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. I would recommend Castle Dargan to anyone, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much to everyone at Castle Dargan for making our wedding day so amazing!


Ursula Collis & Ronan Waldron – 24.08.18

I cannot speak highly enough about Tanya and her professionalism and help to ensure our wedding went to plan. She thought of so many things to ensure the day all went to plan. We had all our guests travelling from Galway and England so they all needed to stay in the hotel before and after the wedding. Mary on front of house assisted with accommodation for all my guests and managed to ensure we all got sorted as it was a lot of organising. The food and wine were amazing and everybody commented on how fabulous it all was. Don’t think twice about having your wedding here they were amazing!! We can’t wait to go back to stay and many of our guests are coming back too.


Louise Maloney & Noel O'Callaghan – 09.08.18

We had our civil ceremony and wedding reception at Castle Dargan and cannot recommend it highly enough. The Coach House was a beautiful setting for our ceremony, tastefully decorated with candles and floral arch. The golf course and grounds were fabulous for our photos. The function room was beautifully set up. The service was just excellent, we can't praise the waiting staff enough for being so efficient and attentive. Colm, the food and beverage manager did a superb job of looking after us all during dinner. The food was lovely, all our guests commented on how nice it was. The views from the function room are superb. A lot of our guests hadn't been in the hotel before and were so impressed with the setting. Tanya, the wedding co-ordinator did such a fantastic job in the months leading up to our wedding and on the day itself. She is so professional and efficient and a joy to deal with. Everything ran so smoothly on the day. Thanks also to Mary who did a great job on looking after the room reservations. She was extremely helpful. For any couples considering Castle Dargan as a wedding venue, we would definitely recommend it. We had such a fabulous day from start to finish. Thanks to all at Castle Dargan and continued success.


Janet Brady & Nathan Wall – 04.08.18

We had our wedding reception in Castle Dargan on 4th August 2018 and honestly could not say one bad thing about it. We had viewed over ten venues before it and had not encountered the professionalism and flexibility that Castle Dargan certainly offered. Our wedding coordinator, Tanya was excellent and made everything we wanted, happen. Nothing was a problem. The ballroom was amazing with gorgeous views of the golf course and the food was incredible. We had the Atlantic timbale of seafood, goats cheese tartlet, Rack of lamb, duo of salmon and seabass and the medley of desserts as options and everything was cooked perfectly. Could not fault it.


Naomi Bonnici & Gerard Norton – 12.05.18

We had our Ceremony & Wedding Reception here on the 12th of May and to say it was excellent would not be enough. Tanya is the girl that manages the Weddings. She was absolutely brilliant. The first day we met her we knew we had nothing to worry about as she is so organised and really knows her stuff, extremely professional and nothing is a problem for her. The morning of our Wedding I felt so relaxed just talking to her. Caroline & Staff who decorated the place left no stone unturned it was complete perfection and they were so lovely to deal with, their attention to detail is magnificent. Mary who sorts out rooms and Collette one of the girls on reception were just all so lovely and a pleasure to deal with. The meal was absolutely fantastic our guests were all so well fed. Bar staff and waiters were all brilliant. Castle Dargan is a Top Class place to have a Wedding & Ceremony. We had the most memorable day ever. I highly recommend Castle Dargan as a Wedding Venue to any couple getting married. Thanks to all.


Vanessa Sweeney & Richard Ellis – 06.05.18
