5 dreamy locations to celebrate your wedding in Ireland

wedding in Ireland

Looking for somewhere to celebrate your wedding in Ireland? Here are five beautiful wedding venues around the Irish countryside. Where will you say ‘I do’?


Congratulations on your engagement! You’ve found the love of your life and now it’s time to plan your big day out.

When it comes down to it, all that matters is you’re marrying the one you love (but it doesn’t hurt to do so in a magical corner of Éire, does it?).

Here are just some of our favourite, dreamy wedding locations around the country.

Powerscourt, Co Wicklow

Nestled in secluded woodland, with the blissfully romantic backdrop of the Sugar Loaf Mountain behind, Powerscourt Hotel Resort & Spa is the perfect place to tie the knot.

Whether guests are looking for intimate or extravagant, traditional or unexpected, the Powerscourt wedding team provides five-star service from beginning to end; listening to ideas and creating a wedding reception that is unique to every bride and groom.

The ‘Secret Garden’ is impeccably designed for private and intimate occasions (plus it’s adaptable to all weather conditions, adding a chic edge to any wedding). Guests can enjoy a champagne reception amongst the greenery whilst watching the happy couple celebrate the most important day of their lives.

Brigit’s Garden, Co Galway

Brigit’s Garden takes you on a magical journey into the heart of Celtic heritage and mythology, making it one of the truly outstanding places to visit in the West of Ireland.

There are several romantic spots in the four Celtic gardens that are ideal for a special ceremony or a blessing, particularly the Bealtaine and Lughnasa gardens.

What’s more, a unique circular, thatched building in the centre of the gardens (called the Roundhouse) is perfect for a drinks reception should the weather turn cold or wet.

Longueville House, Co Cork

Set on 450 acres of beautiful countryside, Longueville House in Co Cork is an 18th-century country home where wedding dreams come true. Owned and run by William and Aisling O’Callaghan, couples can rest assured that everything about their special day will be tailored to their needs.

Elegant yet rustic, the entire venue can be exclusively taken over by the wedding party; meaning no stray stragglers can gatecrash the reception.

Rain, hail or sunshine – it’s a quirky venue for couples who want something different.

Sneem House, Co Kerry

Sneem House in Co Kerry is definitely worth considering for your upcoming civil ceremony. The venue can seat anything from 30 to 320 people; with a selection of areas for the ceremony to take place.

One such place is the romantic house down by the waterfront. Here, stunning mountains, lakes and a rugged coastline act as a beautiful backdrop for wedding day photographs.

Station House Hotel, Co Meath

Set upon 12 acres of landscaped gardens, the charm of Station House Hotel lies in the fact it has been lovingly restored from a converted railway junction.

The original turntable, set amid the landscaped forest, offers a unique setting for your wedding ceremony. Up to 90 guests can be seated here, with vintage style cushions on the surround for additional guest to sit.
