We got married at the Castle Arch two weeks ago. It exceeded our expectations a million times over, it was the perfect venue for our family & friends. From check in on the Friday morning every member of staff was there to cater to our needs.
We had the package for a hundred guests which included a five course meal, our dj, photographer, flowers & cake. All of the suppliers the Castle Arch work with are fantastic, this was a great help as we live in the U.K. and I didn’t have to make several trips home to source all of these. Our flowers & cake were beautiful, Ken made us feel so relaxed and took some great shots, he even helped the groomsmen with their button holes, and Bobby had everyone dancing till 2am! They have a beautiful room to hold your ceremony and we were stunned when we saw the room for our reception as we hadn’t had the chance to see how it would look before the day. It also includes the bar and toilets, and they allowed us to have our Photo Booth set up in the room so we didn’t have people disappearing for long periods of time.
Our guests are still raving about the meal, the breakfast and the food provided in the restaurant at lunch and dinner. I’m sure I will be attending more weddings there, we had some future brides who were hugely impressed with everything! As were all of our guests from the U.K.
If you are looking for a relaxed intimate setting offering superb value and attention to detail there is no where better than this hotel. It may be 3* but we had 5* star service from start to finish. There are only 21 rooms but knightsbrook, Trim Castle and plenty of lovely B&B’s are nearby.
Thank you so much to you all for your hard work. It really shows how much you all enjoy and take pride in looking after your guests so well. And especially to Ruth, Shirley & Theresa for all of your extra help and kindness leading up to and on the day. Can’t forget Gerry for putting up with us rowdy Dubs till the early hours! See you all soon, Julie & Graeme xxx
Fantastic venue! Ruth, Teresa, and Shirley all went out of their ways to make our day perfect, nothing was too much for them. Food and service were excellent! All our guests are still talking about the meal how tasty it was! Staff were all so friendly on the day and did anything they were asked. The decor on both rooms was gorgeous, couldn’t fault a thing, they made our day perfect! We went with one of their package weddings, included was our photographer Ken Butterfield, cake Bernadette Kennelly, flowers Petals and Pressies and a House DJ. All were fantastic and what they do, we couldn’t fault them at all.
Would highly recommend The Castle Arch and all their suppliers.

Can't thank the staff at the Castle Arch enough for all the work you put in for making our day so special and stress-free! We stayed 2 nights and the care and attention to ourselves and guests was second to none. Highly recommended to future brides and grooms to check out this place. Ruth our wedding planner was absolutely fantastic. Nothing was too much hassle for her and we felt as though we were having a chat with a friend from the moment we booked the Castle Arch.
Thank you all so much
Lots of love

We got married here on the 15th of September and the hotel could not do enough for us. They were amazing and supported us from the date we chose their hotel. Everything was catered for, food was amazing, staff were friendly and welcoming. Our co-ordinators Teresa and Ruth went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Teresa stayed by our side all day making sure everything was perfect. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Our day was amazing and we cannot wait to return
Leanne & Cherrie September 15th 2018
I got married here last July. I have to apologize for the late review it has been a bit of a whirlwind!! Words can't describe the experience we had. From the day we went to look at the hotel to the day of our wedding we felt so welcome. Everyone was so helpful in the run up to the wedding. Teresa and Ruth especially get a special mention. Any questions we had were answered. I want to also mention about the fact that the hotel was completely wheelchair accessible for my sister. And they made her feel at ease because everything was organized beforehand and on the day it went so well. All my family and friends had an amazing day and had only nice things to say. The food on the day of the wedding was fab. And there was so much of it. The rooms were fab. Especially the bridal suite. I cannot recommend the hotel enough. All the staff that helped us along the way I want to say thank you. You really made our day extra special.
Emma & Philip , July 2017

Thanks so much to the Castle Arch Hotel for hosting our Wedding On Friday. We had a fantastic day and could not have wished for better. The Hotel itself looked amazing, it had so many lovely little touches all around. The Staff were so friendly and introduced themselves to us if we had not previously met them. They could not have done enough for us on the day.
The Hotel offers such a relaxed and cosy atmosphere, while still being so so professional. Everyone felt so relaxed and chilled, which just gave the wedding such a great atmosphere from start to finish. The Hotel had such a great buzz about it.
The rooms for the ceremony and reception looked gorgeous. The dinner was served promptly, and our guests commented on how hot and delicious the food was, and that there was plenty of it. We got so many compliments about the food, and the service.
Ruth, Shirley, Teresa and Colette were just amazing to deal with from start to finish, they made the whole experience relaxing and stress free. They were all just a pleasure to deal with and you knew that anything you requested would be handled to the highest standard. It was beyond our expectations.
We honestly could not say enough good things about the Hotel and their wonderful staff. We would not change a thing about the day. Yous are a fantastic team. Thank you so much for everything, you really made our day one which we or our guests wont forget.
Thanks for everything..
Teresa and Andrew

Myself and my husband Gary got married in The Castle Arch Hotel on the 14th of May 2016.
Right from the day we stepped into the hotel to consider it as our venue we were delighted! The staff were so warm and welcoming and what I loved so much was that their wedding planner Teresa, was giving a bride hugs and best wishes as she left the hotel for the church before returning later! Straight away I knew if this bride is happy enough to make a point of hugging and thanking Teresa as she set of on her big day then they have to be fantastic!!
From the day we booked our date you guys shared our excitement with us right up until our big day. You put my mind at so much as I learned I was a tad bit of a control freak when it came to the big day and wanted to d it all myself! Your staff did so much more than I could have hoped for to help us have our perfect day! Every meeting or phone call or email left me feeling more confident in our venue choice.
On the big day you had all my extras that I had dropped off placed out to perfection and everybody that spoke to me on your team where o full of well wishes and smiles! Everybody that came to our wedding could not say enough about how welcoming and pleasant everybody was to them and this was huge to me because even though myself and my husband knew how great it was, hearing our guests say they would recommend the Castle Arch Hotel to anybody looking for a venue mad us even happier.
We were literally treated like royalty and so where our guests right up until we left the next day!
Everything was done so seamlessly and with such warmth it really made our day so much more special.
We would 100% without any possible hesitation recommend the Castle Arch Hotel for any function you could possibly have coming up, knowing if you do you will be in the safest hand in the industry!
Thank you so much to every last person at the hotel we thoroughly enjoyed every second of our day thanks to you guys!
Tracey & Gary O'Connor May 14th 2016

The staff were so helpful in the lead up to the wedding and ensured that every element was organised so I could relax and enjoy myself. I would highly recommend the castle arch to any couple planning their special day"
Mr & Mrs Callan
From start to finish Colette and all the staff at the Castle Arch went above and beyond their duties to ensure that our special day went off without a hitch. From our very first meeting with Colette we knew that the Castle Arch was the perfect venue for our big day. The homely atmosphere of the hotel made it an ideal location for our needs. In the build up to our wedding day the staff were extremely helpful with all our queries. On the day the hotel was setup fantastically and really made our day extra special. To this day our guests still talk about their own experiences and in particular the quality of the food that was served. We couldn't recommend the Castle Arch highly enough and will gladly return in the near future.
Emer and Mark Fitzpatrick, Married on 2nd May 2015

We highly recommend the Castle Arch for your wedding venue.

Siobhan & Richie Doolan November 2014
We had a wonderful day at our wedding @ the Castle Arch Hotel. Everything was perfect. We had a civil ceremony in the hotel which was made extra special by the staff. The treatment we had from the staff from the day we booked our wedding to when we checked out of the hotel the day after the wedding was fantastic. Every single one of our wedding guests have said it was the best wedding they had been at. The food was absolutely fabulous as well as the service. I can just say that everything from the flowers, cake, photographer and the hotel we could not have asked for more. I would recommend The Castle Arch to anybody who is thinking of getting married. We were 100% satisfied.
Lorraine & Michael Kerrigan October 2014
My wife and I had our marriage ceremony and reception in the Castle Arch Hotel on the 20th of June 2014. From start to finish the staff in the hotel could not have been more helpful. The packages that they provide include everything that you need for your day to go smoothly. Everyone at the hotel took control of the day and made sure the guests knew what was happening and that myself and the bride had very little to do. The food was great and the atmosphere created by the hotel staff was excellent. I would like to thank everyone at the Castle Arch Hotel for making our special day perfect.
Rory and Julianne O' Donnell, 20th June 2014
We had a brilliant day on our wedding day and so much of it was thanks to the amazing staff of the Castle Arch. We chose the Castle Arch for its highly competitive wedding package and its great reputation for food, which was delicious on the day as expected. So many of the guests commented on the lovely food and how good a feed they got. We especially enjoyed our personalized desserts! The service was really quick and everything ran really smoothly from when we arrived till when the last guests finally made it off to bed! All the staff in the Castle Arch were great to deal with, the reception was one part of the day that I never stressed over as we were in very capable hands. The hotel was very good at getting back to me very quickly on any questions I had in the months leading up to the wedding. Our family delivered a lot of extra little things that we wanted in the room the night before and the hotel staff did a great job at setting it all up, the room looked gorgeous. We would highly recommend the Castle Arch to anyone. Thanks so much for helping to make our big day the best day of our lives!
Lisa on Wed, 28th May, 2014
Excellent hotel to have your wedding in! The staff cannot do enough for you, and always have time for you, our wedding day went just perfect thanks to the staff and management , they provided a kids room for us on the day as our wedding had lots of children attending, they also provide the kids with a Tv and DVD, they were all delighted. Food was excellent even came around with seconds for all guests! Overall we had our dream day on a budget thanks to all at the castle arch for going beyond our exceptions.
Edel & Joseph.7th January 2014
I highly recommend the Castle Arch as a Wedding Venue. There wasn't enough that they could do for you. We organised our wedding for 200 guests with three months’ notice. They minimised any stress involved in organising such an event. They tailored everything to suit our needs. Their prices were extremely competitive. I have attended many weddings locally and nationally and the quality of their food and service surpasses all. We still have guests who comment on the quality of their food and service. Their function room looked superb and is an ideal size to cater for such a number. Guests staying in the hotel were very positive with regard to their competitive room rates. I would recommend them to anyone looking to trim as a wedding venue in terms of their level of service, competitive rates, and excellent quality of food and as an intimate venue for your wedding and guests.
Yvette & Alan on Mon, 19th August, 2013
We highly recommend The Castle Arch Hotel for your wedding if you want the perfect day. We planned our wedding from Australia and all of the staff especially managing were so helpful to us via phone and email to liaise with us on every little detail. From preparations to our wedding day we never encountered any problems with The Castle Arch Hotel. On our wedding day we were looked after tremendously and so were all of our guests. The Castle Arch Hotel provided excellent service, fabulous food and unbelievable value...The Castle Arch Hotel really is the whole package. Definitely a 5 star experience!!
A 3 star hotel with 5 star service!!! Our wedding day was a dream come true for us, with the Castle Arch Hotel making it perfect in every way. From the first time we met with the management and staff we were made to feel special. Everything involved on our big day was meticulously planned, from the service, the fabulous meal, the beautifully decorated function room, the best Dj ever, and the stunning bridal suite. From my husband Mick and myself, a huge thank you to all in the Castle Arch for an unforgettable day
Rory & Mick April 2015
Adrian and I got married on the 13th of February and we had an amazing day. The staff at The Castle Arch Hotel were amazing. Everything was beyond perfect. Food was delicious. The guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and some are still talking about the day. There was just one fault only, some guests mentioned it to us, and there was no tea/coffee & milk facilities in the rooms. Overall though we had an amazing day and it was down to the staff of the hotel for making everything perfect.
Ciara & Adrian Lynch February 2015
From start to finish, it was 100%. We couldn't off asked for more. The staff where so friendly and catered to everyone's needs. The food was fabulous. We couldn’t off asked for a better day. I thoroughly recommend the Castle Arch to anyone for their wedding day, 5 stars all round.
Leona Kenny on Tue, 24th November, 2015
I cannot thank Colette, Ruth, Shirley, Teresa, Linda and all of the gang at the Castle Arch Hotel for a fantastic Wedding day on 18th of April 2015.
