Its picturesque location next to the banks of the Liffey at the Strawberry Beds, its reputation for fine food, and its capacity to cater for up to 140 people in its spacious and contemporary Phoenix Room, have made The Angler’s Rest an increasingly popular and alternative venue for wedding parties.

The natural beauty of the nearby Phoenix Park – providing the ideal backdrop for wedding photographs – extensive parking and its proximity to Dublin city centre are added attractions for couples looking for that romantic setting with a difference to celebrate their big day.

Instead of the more conservative surroundings of a hotel, couples find the intimate ambience of The Angler’s Rest particularly appealing. The staff works closely with the newlyweds in the planning of the day, taking even the smallest detail into account and tailoring the function to meet specific requirements. Such is the flexibility of the room that it can be adapted in layout to suit individual needs.

Special attention is paid to the menu – with a vast array of dishes from which to choose – and to the fine selection of wines, beers and spirits which are most appropriate for the occasion.
And for guests who want to fully enjoy the day, overnight accommodation is readily available locally in a variety of hotels, B&Bs and guesthouses.

The most fantastic day!

Anglers is a wonderful venue, and the team especially Alison are fantastic to deal with incredibly helpful, patient and understanding. Alison arranged a lovely COVID wedding for us, it was so good our family and friends are still talking about it and have looked at doing something similar, the food was amazing as always! Alison was hands on and helped me with a Dj and my bouquet which was beautiful! It honeslty couldn't have been an easier, no stress and lovely wedding day!

1st Spetember 2012 Peter & Roisin

I can't believe how quickly the year has passed since I enjoyed the most gorgeous day of my life; my wedding reception in the Anglers Rest. And I'm embarrassed I never got around to sending a word of thanks to you and all your staff for that day (1st Spetember 2012, Peter & Róisín) for being so friendly and attentive. There was literally nothing I would change about our experience in the Anglers Rest. The food was simply delicious!

I was prompted to send this email by our recent anniversary dinner (Sat 21st). My only other visit, around my birthday, was lovely. And I'd been dying to go back! Suffice to say, the food and ambience was perfect and exactly what made me fall in love with the place from the beginning.

So I can only apologise to you all that I never thanked you for all the work that went into our day.
I have some lovely photos of our group outside enjyong the sun that I'll send on to you, as the anglers looks great in them.

Sincere thanks,

Erin & Kevin 6th Sept 2013

Thank you so much for such an amazing wedding in the Angler's. It was exactly as we hoped it would be and everyone really enjoyed the day. Our ceremony was so special in the lovely room upstairs and the flowers you set out were abso gorgeous.

Oliver, Tom and all the staff were so brilliant. The food was fantastic.

You were so lovely to work with and so helpful with everything. I'd highly recommend the Angler's as an intimate wedding venue to anyone.

Thanks again and we'll definitely be back soon :)

All the best,
Erin & Kevin
