The Phoenix Suite

The Phoenix Suite really is the perfect setting for a wedding reception. There are two fully stocked bars within the room and a new private smoking terrace with a canopy and heaters and exclusive access directly from the ballroom.  
The room is serviced by its own kitchen enabling the hotel to offer an efficient high class service for your meal. The hotel has also installed a new mood lighting system which creates the perfect ambience within the room with variable coloured settings available at your discretion. 
The Phoenix Suite at the Castleknock Hotel Dublin has a flexible layout that allows the room to change size depending on the required capacity without making the room look too empty or crowded. Our maximum capacity for a wedding is 406 guests. 

For an average sized wedding of up to 130 guests, you will only need to use the Sierra Hawthorn Suite which is a rectangular shaped room although there is the option for your evening wedding entertainment to be setup in the adjoining suite allowing a fluid transition from the speeches to the entertainment without any guest disruption if you wish. Our staff simply pull across the moveable dividing wall to unveil your band or DJ to the surprise of your guests. This avoids the lull that regularly affects weddings as they dismantle the top table to setup the band and maintains the momentum of your special evening.

From the minute we stepped out of the car until we checked out the following day, everything was amazing. The attention to detail that you and your team showed us was second to none. All of our guests complimented the chef as the food was fabulous.

    I cannot thank you enough for making our dreams come true. I also got a great surprise when I walked into the reception room and the seat covers and bows were there to add that final touch. I would and will recommend Castleknock Hotel to anybody who I know is getting married and looking for a truly special venue.

  • Just had to write a quick e-mail to thank you all for the fantastic day that Castleknock Hotel created for our wedding day on the 23rd of December 2009.

    From the day before arrangements to checking out on Christmas Eve, there is not one thing we would have changed about the day and the hotel. When we first arrived in after the church, we were greeted by yourselves and I personally like royalty with a member of staff always within arms reach if we had a question or were looking for a drink, or in my case Nurofen!! Thank you for that Stephen, that was above and beyond!

    Each room was beautiful decorated and was exactly what we had in mind and I felt that you really captured the ideas that both myself and Shane had for our wedding from the intimate drinks reception in the Lime Tree, the beautiful candlelight dinner in the Park, to the colourful Christmas party in the Hawthorn. The food was amazing and everyone still mentions the soup and chicken fajitas to me!! I never once saw a plate being cleared away or a table with glasses, the staff were really on top form and I would recommend the hotel for any function and we will find a reason to use it again ourselves for a party!!

    To Stephen in particular, I cannot thank you enough, we had a few little ups and downs early on but when we met up with you, I felt you really understood what type of day we wanted and you came up with some great ideas before we even thought of them.

    Thank you to you all for creating such a calm, fun, beautiful wedding day for us,

I will definitely be staying there again for dinner and drinks and over night as we just fell in love with the Hotel.
