Irish wedding venue Castle Durrow

Have you recently gotten engaged, or know a couple who has? We’ve teamed up with Castle Durrow to give one lucky couple the chance to win a night’s B&B, plus a scheduled tour around the romantic wedding venue.


Located in the heart of Ireland, Castle Durrow in County Laois is steeped in rich Irish history. Dating back to 1716, the fully restored mansion has been a romantic destination for brides and grooms for years – and for good reason.

Castle Durrow is truly a one-stop-shop for weddings – not only does its team cater to classic, traditional couples, but also those looking for something more modern (even laid-back BBQ-style ceremonies).

From your very first show-around the venue to the Big Day itself, all of your wishes are given special consideration. The secret? Careful and meticulous planning by the Castle Durrow team, so you won’t have to worry at all.

Your wedding day at Castle Durrow

With elegant rooms, all of which have been individually designed by Shelly and Peter Stokes with family heirlooms and antiques, Castle Durrow’s characterful interiors are a beautiful backdrop to any wedding. Factor in the original cantilevered grand staircase and the magnificent stained glass window – it’s a wedding photographer’s dream.

But what about the rest of the day – the food, the accommodation, the drinks reception? All equally luxurious.

“Enjoy your first moments as husband and wife in our historic castle,” says the Castle Durrow wedding team. “Our extensive gardens and beautiful interiors provide the perfect scenery for your wedding pictures, before you return to greet your guests and welcome them with sparkling Prosecco and delicious canapes.

“After your drinks reception, indulge in an exquisite meal, specially designed by a dedicated team of expert chefs for you and your guests.”

As for accommodation, newly married couples are invited to sleep in the luxurious Lord Ashbrook suite, after which they can greet guests over breakfast. “We just love weddings and we want you to have the best wedding day in the world,” says the wedding team.
