“We recently had our wedding reception at The Banking Hall in The Westin, and it was a day we will cherish forever. The whole experience was amazing, from the planning stage to the big day itself. Without fail, the hotel staff were welcoming, courteous, and professional. The food was excellent, and the attention to detail was superb. The day was organised and run so smoothly by the staff, which left us free to enjoy ourselves with our family and friends. I can not fault anything and I would not hesitate to recommend The Westin as a wonderful wedding venue”.

“From our initial meeting with the staff in the Westin, we knew that this was the venue we wanted.  All our interactions with staff were very professional and they made the process from start to finish simple and seamless.  The venue is both elegant and kept to a very high standard.  It was truly a pleasure to have had our reception at the Westin and we cannot praise or recommend the venue, food or staff highly enough.  Together with our guests we had a truly wonderful day”.

“We had our wedding in the Westin in May 2019 and could not have been happier with the whole experience. We had both our ceremony and evening reception in the beautiful Banking Hall and the whole day went smoothly from start to finish. The hotel was happy to accommodate all our requests in the build up to the wedding and on the day itself. Our wedding coordinator Lindsay was extremely professional and was always on hand to answer any questions and assist in the build up to the wedding, taking a lot off our plates and making sure we were fully informed on every detail of the day. She coordinated with all our suppliers (florist, band, musicians etc.) allowing us to take a step back and enjoy the build-up and not worry about anything on the day. It is a beautiful wedding venue and a hidden gem in the middle of Dublin City.

In particular, our guests commented on the high level of service by the staff in the hotel as well as the amazing meal that we were served. Having been to so many weddings in recent years, it is definitely a level above what I have experienced in other venues. Overall I would highly recommend the Westin to couples who are considering it as a venue – the location, service and physical beauty of the venue are something that you and your guests will definitely remember!”

“From the moment we went to see the Banking Hall as a wedding venue in The Westin Dublin we knew it was the one for us. From the grandeur of the rooms to the picturesque Presidential suite we instantly knew that this would be one of those venues people talk about. What really won us over though was the staff – whether it was the greetings from the Doormen and the Receptionists to Ciara’s warm presence and can-do attitude we knew we were in good hands. That feeling carried us through our planning right up until the day itself where we were both bowled over by the experience. Everything from the setup, to the staff being there to greet us, to the food and the overall ambience was out of this world.

People still say what an amazing time they had and what a wonderful venue to get married in. We are so grateful to all the staff that made our day so wonderful. And if that wasn’t enough – we have the added benefit of every time we walk down Westmoreland Street we get to look up at The Westin and bring back so many happy memories.”

“It was the most perfect wedding venue in the heart of Dublin City Centre. The Banking Hall was a breath taking backdrop to the most wonderful wedding reception and it is hard to imagine a more beautiful ballroom in Ireland.  The staff were all so friendly and professional. Eamonn, Ciara and Tanya were such a pleasure to work with and were so reassuring that they made the wedding planning easy. All our guests had a fantastic day from start to finish. When our guests departed the church a member of the Westin Hotel team was on hand to with umbrellas for our guests. This gesture set the tone for a fabulous day where all our guests were treated like royalty. The food and wine were delicious and we received great compliments from our guests. After dinner the ballroom was the perfect setting for dancing the night away. To cap off a perfect day, we enjoyed our night in the luxurious bridal suite, which was an incredible suite over two floors with views overlooking Trinity College. Thank you so much to all The Westin team for our perfect wedding experience.  We simply wish we could do it all over again!”

“Myself and my husband decided that we wanted a Dublin wedding. We went about searching for a venue. We luckily happened upon The Westin and from the moment we entered the building we knew that this was the venue for us. From the very beginning the staff were friendly, accommodating and just so natural. It was the first venue that we felt comfortable in and that feeling never left us throughout our whole engagement and that was down to the superb staff. No question was too big or small for the staff in The Westin. They were on hand to help us at all times. I can safely say that anything that The Westin were orgainising for us (the room, decoration,  food, accommodation) was never a worry for us as we knew they were on top of it all…. which is HUGE when you’re planning a wedding and you have a million other things to worry about. Not only is The Banking Hall a spectacular room but the room decoration, the incredible food and phenomenal staff completely complementing each other resulting in a truly exceptional experience from start to finish. I could not recommend the Westin more to couples looking for a wedding venue…. simply out of this world.”

“The Westin is a truly special venue. It is an experience. If you want 5 star service, attention to detail, beautiful food, the finest dinner service, professionally trained staff, crystal glasses and just pure class from start to finish then this is the wedding venue for you. The Westin is not your average wedding venue. It is far from it in fact. It is luxury in Dublin city centre and such a unique experience for your guests.
The staff make you feel like no request is too big or small. The answer is always “yes”.
When the banking hall doors open, it is breathtaking. We were absolutely thrilled that we picked the Westin as our wedding venue. It is the perfect hotel for your wedding. Ciara Brennan will go above and beyond to make sure that your day runs without a hitch. She is a professional and you can rely on her to deliver your vision to a tee. The staff and service made us and our guests feel special. Our guests complimented the professionalism of the staff.”
