“Brilliant wedding venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

Just wanted to thank all the staff at Finnstown Country House Hotel for the great way in which they looked after us at our wedding on the 23rd March. We had a brilliant day, the food was beautiful and our guests absolutely loved the hotel. The grounds were wonderful for the photos. A special thanks to Silvano who was friendly and professional and put us at our ease in the run up to the big day. I would recommend Finnstown House to any bride who is looking for a beautiful, elegant yet relaxed wedding. You won't be disappointed!

We got married here on 02.03.2012. We picked this hotel since we loved the country feel to it and we wanted something a bit different. From the moment we set our feet in there for the first time we just knew: this had to be it. Originally we went for dinner and were really impressed with the beautiful dining room, the friendliness of the staff and the great food. We stayed over night the night before the wedding too and the rooms are big and comfortable. Very clean and modern with a twist of the old times. For the wedding itself we can only give the best reviews, the grounds are stunning, the staff was absolutely brilliant and the food was delicious. All the guests complimented the food, little extras were no problem at all. Everyone was impressed with the hotel itself, the driveway to the hotel brings you into a different world and it's easy to forget that you are still very close to Dublin. Which it really was. The service was great, everyone went out of their way to make sure we had a perfect day. Which we did. We would like to thank everyone for making our day really special and special thanks to Silvano and Edwina for all the help. We are already planning to stay there again in the near future.

We both enjoyed our visit to Finnstown House last weekend. If you didn't know Lucan, you would swear this place was in the middle of the country. A short drive from the main gates and the peace and quiet of the surroundings hits you straight away. Although we just popped up here for a meal, it really was very relaxing to sit in this beautiful estate. We have stayed here many times before and if anything the place has got better. Staff were terrific and constantly on the move. Friends had given us a pressie of a voucher as they know we both love this hotel.
We enjoyed our meal and drinks in the lounge area even though we were invited to use the restaurant.Presentation was FAB.
Staff simply can't do enough for you here,(give them a rise Mr.manager) which in turn brings people back again and again.
Well it does for us anyway :)

Myself and my husband enjoyed dinner in the bar in Finnstown house. We both had starters of chowder and filled potato skins both dishes were very tasty. I had the roast beef with potato and veg which I really enjoyed and the food was tasty and HOT.My husband had the roast pork steak which he said was beautiful. There is a lovely atmosphere and the staff were lovely. I will be telling my friends and family about Finnstown and the prices are very reasonable. Go try and see for yourself I don't think you will be dissapointed.

I agree with others, this hotel is just a little gem. Everything positive said about the staff is true, they just can't help you enough. We had a few problems on check-in but everything was addressed immediately and we got upgraded to one of the little apartments, which was just lovely. My only slight negative would be that the leisure facilities do indeed need updating.

Have just spent a super overnight in Finnstown Country House. We were assigned to one of the chalets, and although we were initially a bit disappointed at not getting a room in the main building, we forgot about that once we got inside the chalet. It was just gorgeous, like a little house, warm and cosy with our own front door and parking directly outside. The main road up to Finnstown is very busy, but yet when you drive in gates to the hotel you are instantly in the country, not a sound can be heard from the road outside and it feels so peaceful and quiet. We had booked in for dinner later in the evening, so went to the Leisure Centre for an hour beforehand to relax. It's not a very big facility but we enjoyed the time we spent there - a gentle swim and some time in the steam room. Our chalet was only a short 2 minute walk to the hotel for dinner, and what a meal we had. The dining room was cosy and warm, with an open fire and lots of atmosphere. The menu had plenty of choice and the food was excellent, both from a presentation point of view and quality of cooking. Service was top class and we were not rushed in any way. Couldn't fault a single thing about the meal. This was a special treat and not something we would be doing a lot, as this hotel isn't the cheapest place, but it was very well worth it and we would go again. We only have one cricitism, and that is the Leisure Centre. The dressing room showers and tiles need serious attention, and it would benefit from a freshen up with new paint. Having said that it didn't take from our very enjoyable stay in Finnstown.
