“We have been delighted to recieve many letters of thanks from couples who have chosen Castle Dargan for their unique wedding venue.
Here are a few examples:”

Michelle & Jarlath – 31st December 2023

Overall I would recommend the Castle Dargan as a wedding venue. Taylor, the wedding coordinator, was always very helpful and organised in the lead up to our big day!

Seana & Cathair – 11th December 2023

Castle Dargan made our whole wedding experience so personal and suited to our wants and desires from the beginning, Taylor has been outstanding in her attentiveness to all of our wishes through the whole process, the whole staff have been amazing on the run up and on the day and couldn’t do enough for us. Our guests were blown away by how beautiful the venue was and how good the food was. Taylor went above and beyond on the day to make sure we needed nothing and made everything run smoothly. The rooms were clean and warm and all of the wedding guests were accommodated to their every need, the house where the bridal party got ready and stayed was amazing and beautiful. We want to thank everyone at Castle Dargan for making us feel so special and helping us make our wedding so perfect.

Elaine & Patrick – 9th September 2023

We had our wedding reception in Castle Dargan at the start of Sep 2023. Myself , my now husband and our son had a lovely day. In the build up to the wedding day the hotel accommodated a wedding tasting at the weekend to suit our work schedules which we appreciated. Our wedding contract and plan was clearly laid out and the hotel were flexible with our food requests and dietary requests for our guests.
On the day of the wedding our reception looked beautiful, the food came out hot and promptly with good portion sizes and taste. We went with beef and salmon for our mains and really enjoyed. We got a lot of compliments on the food from our guests. The function room overlooking the golf course really is pretty. Throughout the planning stage we had regular contact from Caroline, Jessica and our wedding coordinator Taylor. The waiting staff were polite and friendly which we appreciated especially with a big wedding . Our room was really pretty we stayed the night after so we could chill out. The staff were helpful in heating up a bottle of milk for my toddler its the small little things which we appreciated. The staff helped my family set up the cake , took reception signs, family picture the day before and displayed them beautifully at the reception there was no stress in the lead up which means a lot. The hotel held our flowers and gifts in a safe and chilled room until we were ready to leave again allowing us to relax and enjoy. We didn’t have the weather to fully make use of the lovely grounds for pics but again Irish weather out of anyone’s control. A big thank you for making our day special..

Donal & Lisa – 11th August 2023

Castle Dargan Estate is an absolutely beautiful venue. We had our wedding here in August (both ceremony and reception) and it was such a fantastic and unforgettable day, it couldn’t have went better. Our wedding coordinator Taylor was amazing! She kept in regular contact leading up to the wedding. Her attention to detail is great and everything on the day was exactly as we planned.
The food on the day was fantastic, fresh and piping hot. Zoltan took charge during the meal and everything ran like clockwork. He directed all the staff with such professionalism. Many of our guests commented on how good the food was and also how well it was all ran.
Thank you so much to all the staff for making our day so special. We would highly recommend Castle Dargan Estate!

Aimee & Johnathan- 7th July 2023

Castle Dargan was a joy to work with on the day of our wedding, and we were made feel so at ease by Taylor and Caroline. Food was amazing, service at the meal was timely and so professional. We are so happy we picked CD as our wedding venue.

Catriona & Donal – 12th May 2023

We had the most amazing day for our wedding thanks to Michelle and all the team at Castle dargan. Michelle (wedding coordinator) was always a pleasure to deal with and was always at the end of the phone for any question or query and made everything run so smoothly on the day. All the staff could not have done more for us and our wedding guests. The food and service was just excellent. We really could not have asked for a better day. We would really recommend Castle dargan as a fabulous wedding venue.

Natalie & Nathan Jones – 30th March 2023

My husband and I wanted to say a big thank you to Michelle and all the team at Castle Dargan Hotel for helping make our Wedding the most amazing day for us. We want to do it all over again! From start to finish the day was perfect, Michelle literally thought of everything and it made us feel completely at ease. All of our guests, especially those who have travelled and never been to Sligo before were impressed by the venue, scenery, friendliness of the staff and the food on the day of the wedding which was amazing! Michelle you really know your stuff, and you were on hand whenever needed so thank you for that because we had nothing to be worried about really. Special thanks to Caroline for looking after us in the morning and getting my little girl flat 7up and pastry as she was poorly, those little touches are always remembered! The guests were blown aware by the dinner service and the hospitality, the staff was so friendly and also funny at times, just what is needed at a Wedding! My husband and I are looking forward to returning next year for our 1st anniversary.

Damian & Jessica Coleman – 3rd December 2022

From our first initial viewing to booking and all the months and weeks lead up to our big day, the staff and management of Castle Dargan were absolutely delightful to work with.. Every communication made to and fro you were always made feel so special. It felt like we were getting married everyday for 18 months.. especially from wedding coordinator Michelle.. She is a dream to work with..

Ciara Davis & Barry Underwood – 25th November 2022

We had our wedding at the Castle Dargan and to say we had a great day is an understatement. The team went above and beyond to make our special day an excellent day. Their attention to detail was amazing and they made it such a wonderful experience. I couldn’t recommend it as a wedding venue enough. From the wedding planners, the receptionists, bar men, meal servers, cleaners etc….the list goes on! They were all excellent and such a pleasure to deal with.

 Sandra & Jamies Lally – 5th November 2022

Helen and Alan White – 2nd September 2022

We loved Castle Dargan as a wedding venue from the moment we set eyes on it as we drove in. Then we met the staff and wedding team, Caroline Moran, Caroline Brennan, Michelle and Soltan and we were totally smitten with the venue. They were so warm, welcoming and so very helpful. Nothing was a problem. No question was a silly question. And all our questions, silly or not, were answered. Our wedding day was a fantastic, memorable day for us and all our guests thanks to Castle Dargan and all its wonderful staff. Knowing now the safe hands we were in having our wedding in Castle Dargan, we would do it all again in a heartbeat. Helen & Alan White.

Shaun and Lorraine Nugent – 16th July 2022

Caroline was brilliant throughout the whole process of planning our wedding. From start to finish Castle Dargan met everyone of our request without hesitation. We enjoyed every single second of our wedding and just wish we could do it all again. The food was just gorgeous, everyone said it was so tasty. The decor of the room was just perfect, it was like walking into a fairy tale. We had the best day at our wedding in on the 16 Jul 2022. Thanks again to Caroline and the rest of the team in Castle Dargan Lorraine and Shaun

Aoibheann & John Harrison- 30th April 2022

We had our wedding in April 2022 in Castle Dargan. We can’t thank all the staff in Castle Dargan enough for all they did for us, we had the most magical day. Caroline, Zoltan and Jessica were absolutely fabulous to deal with from start to finish! No request was too big or too small, Caroline’s attention to detail is 12 out of 10! With all the emails and calls back and forth with ideas and edits and revisions she managed to make it all come to life on the day and didnt miss a thing! The food was absolutely beautiful, it was so difficult to choose at our menu tasting as everything was so delicious and Matt made the experience so enjoyable for us and offered great advice about our options! The tayto sandwiches went down an absolute treat at 2am too! They even organised gluten free bread and gluten free crisps for our coeliac guests! The function room looked stunning as did the coach house for our drinks reception, and every single staff member couldn’t have been more helpful on the day. Jessica was brilliant to work with to sort out all accomodation, she kept us informed every step of the way and was able to facilitate all of our requests such as grouping certain guests in rooms close to eachother or giving some guests ground floor rooms etc. Our day was extremely wet but Castle Dargan House made such a gorgeous backdrop for our indoor photos, the porch and stairs were stunning – it’s great to have an option for lovely indoor photos when mother nature kicks in! Thank you so much to Caroline and all the staff in Castle Dargan, we had our dream wedding day!

Bríd and Keith Mulligan- 12th March 2022

Having celebrated our wedding recently we have to say that staff could not have done enough for us. Caroline Brennan in particular was a real pleasure to have as our co-ordinator. We dealt with Caroline in the months leading up to our wedding day. She was always so lovely to deal with. She did absolutely everything in her power to ensure that we had a brilliant day. She is a truly wonderful, down to earth person who just wants the best for others and this clearly shines through in her work. On top of all this her proffesionilsm is top notch! We really cannot speak highly of her. Caroline herself could not be there on the day (totally understanding of this) and we were a little sad when we heard but this is genuinly testament to the hard work that she had put in. Caroline ensured that absolutly everything was in order for us on our day before handing us over to the well capable Michelle. Again, another wonderful person, very friendly and down to earth. Michelle was waiting for us on arrival with a wonderful smile and a very meaningful welcome on our big day. We cannot speak highly of all staff in Castle Dargan. Everyone was so accommodating throughout our weekend. Staff even thought of little details that we probably wouldn’t have thought about ourselves. We sat during our meal and watched as guests chatted and smiled throughout, they were clearly having a brilliant day. On chatting with guests after all had died down they were full of compliments for the food and the venue itself. It truly is a wonderful place made even more special by those who work there. Thank you so much to everyone who played a part in contributing to our day. We really did have the best time x

Edel and Martin Shaughnessy- 26th February 2022

Fantastic team to deal with, efficient and professional. Every detail covered and no job was too big for staff!! Food and accommodation were excellent and our guests were very well looked after.

Ciara and Conor Robbins- 30th December 2021

We booked Castle Dargan for our wedding on the 30th December 2021. We loved the setting and were excited to be able to have so many of our friends and family come together and stay there before and after the wedding. Caroline was our wedding coordinator and she was simply amazing. Nothing was too much bother, she went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We cannot thank her enough. Zoltan and his team who managed the meal were outstanding, the food was delicious and all was timed perfectly.We cannot thank the whole team at Castle Dargan enough, they were professional, friendly and welcoming. We received so many compliments about the venue and the setting. Thank you for making our day so special.

Fiona and Shane Goggins- 28th December 2021

A venue I would highly recommend. Caroline is very reassuring which is needed trying to organise a wedding during a pandemic. Very professional, anything we asked for was absolutely know problem. Food was out of this world as was the service. When we had to postpone last year they were very accomodating in everyway. They make you feel so relaxed that all you can do is enjoy your day. The grounds are exceptional for photos. I can’t praise this venue enough or its staff especially Caroline.

Aisling and Ciarán Corr- 12th December 2021

We would highly recommend Castle Dargan to future couples. From the day we booked our wedding to the day of our wedding, we couldn’t fault the service. Considering we got married during the pandemic, any updated info and restrictions was explained to us thoroughly and Caroline always had the options thought out for us. The service & food was delicious & our guests still remark on the meal. The staff were very helpful, friendly & kind. A lot of our guests never actually heard or had been to Castle Dargan previously, they commented on the quality of service and the scenic location, many of them intending to return in the future. We had the most memorable day in this hidden little gem with all our wishes and expectations fulfilled. Thanks to all the staff of Castle Dargan & especially Caroline for making our wedding day truly fantastic & memorable. Aisling and Ciarán

Áine & Trevor Fahey – 24th October 2021

We fell in love with Castle Dargan the minute we set eyes on it. The venue is beautiful, clean, and welcoming. There was no other venue on our minds after seeing what they had to offer. The reception room is absolutely incredible! Our wedding took place in October last year after postponing twice. All of the staff we dealt with throughout all of these changes were incredibly sympathetic, helpful, and professional despite it being a challenging time for them as well. Any concerns we had in relation to restrictions were listened to and addressed and we felt reassured that every effort would be made to help us have a great day. The day itself was fantastic, we could not have asked for more from all of the staff. The guests were raving about the food and wine and the venue itself. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend a wedding in Castle Dargan to any couple

Lianne & Craig McMorrow – 16th July 2021

We recently had our wedding at Castle Dargan! What an amazing venue! It is such a beautiful place for a wedding and the grounds provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos. Tanya the wedding coordinator is fantastic and ensured we had a magical day despite all the COVID-19 restrictions. Zoltan looked after us on the night and he was such a big hit with the guests! All of the staff and management were just so helpful throughout our stay. The food and service were absolutely fab! Overall a perfect day and we couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you for everything! The McMorrow’s x

Arlene & Darren Gately – 29th December 2020

Myself and my husband, Darren booked Castle Dargan Hotel for our wedding well over a year ago. The first date was to be 30th Oct 2020, due to Covid we had to change the 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 centrepieces 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.
