Ballymagarvey Village

There is no wedding quite like a Ballymagarvey wedding. The entire grounds have been manicured and perfectly laid out with the intention of seducing your senses and adding a touch of magic to every aspect of your big day. You will receive a warm welcome at the main house with open fires, a country kitchen and oversized sofas to sink into whilst you enjoy music emanating from the white baby grand piano. It’s only a short stroll across the perfectly landscaped gardens over to the beautiful barn style ballroom where you can party the night away in style. Did we mention that they have chandeliers hanging from the trees… outside!

Bellingham Castle

The Corscadden family acquired this superb castle estate in 2012, adding to their already established group of illustrious castle venues (Cabra Castle, Ballyseede Castle and Markree Castle) What they have achieved here is a perfect blend of all the best wedding ingredients, built upon a foundation of hosting thousands of amazing weddings at their existing properties. Experience, hospitality, luxury and grandure are precisely what can be expected on your wedding day at Bellingham Castle.

Boyne Hill House Estate

Country splendour, serenity, a funky barn and a tunnel of love – says it all really 🙂 If you enjoy the peace, serenity and charm of an Irish country house but also like to let your hair down and have a bit of craic then this is the place for you. Unlike a standard function room type setup, the dancing takes place in a really cool bar area and is linked back to the main house by an underground passage (the aforementioned tunnel) – a fun and unique twist! They also have a beautiful space for ceremonies and various beautiful reception rooms in the main house. Delightful!

Wow! That’s a word we don’t use too often. Feel like a Lord or Lady of the Manor as you arrive at this magnificent estate. Undoubtedly you will be residing in one of the opulent suites in the main house. The wedding party guests can stay in one of the many self-catering country cottages decked out to a five star luxury standard. Open fires, an outdoor hot tub, a stunning orangery and award-winning gastronomy. Perhaps a visit to the nearby newly opened Slane Whiskey Distillery to settle the nerves might be on the cards?
