Luttrellstown Castle

on November 6, 2011 – 7:44 am

Luttrellstown Castle is certainly a unique venue. Less than 30 minutes from Dublin City centre and the International Airport Luttrellstown Castle enjoys a unique setting comprising 560 acres of lush parkland, splendid lakes for fishing plus a championship golf course all within the Luttrellstown estate. Luttrellstown takes its name from the Luttrells who held the estate for more than 300 years until it passed from the family in 1811. The exact age of the castle is unknown, as it is almost impossible to separate the present structure from the earlier stronghold around which the famous Gothic façade is built. Perfect for corporate events, house parties, weddings and special occasions, Luttrellstown Castle after seven years is once again available to national and international guests.

This month a new web site is launched to showcase Luttrellstown Castle and its facilities. Setting the scene with a series of wide screen images the new web site beckons the viewer to explore further. Once inside the visitor has all the information needed to help plan a successful business event, a family gathering or wedding celebration. Images of the public spaces, the 12 luxury bedrooms, activities and photo gallery all help to reflect the character and atmosphere of Luttrellstown Castle.

Over the years many high profile individuals have spent time at Luttrellstown Castle including Queen Victoria, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco, Fred Astaire, Douglas Fairbanks and Ronald Reagan. More recently Paul Newman and the pop group REM have made themselves at home in the castle. Luttrellstown was at the centre of media attention when Victoria and David Beckham were married there in 1999.

As well as being ideal for meetings and private functions, Luttrellstown Castle has proven itself very popular as a film location. The new web site contains clips from feature films and television programmes in which the Castle has been featured – notably the Australian X Factor Series featuring Ronan Keating and ‘Honeymoon for One’ starring Nicolette Sheridan and Greg Wise

During October over sixty travel trade and events organisers gathered at Luttrellstown Castle to mark the Castle’s launch as one of Ireland’s exclusive use venues. At the launch Chief Executive Colm Hannon is quoted as saying: “Our policy of total flexibility and customer care enables guests to feel completely at home here in the Castle. It is a splendid location close to Dublin yet having all the atmosphere of an Irish Castle set in a country estate. Luttrellstown is truly very different to anything else currently available.”
