Ashford Castle

As you enter through the grand stone gates, nothing can prepare you for the beauty of Ashford Castle. With the option to exclusively hire the entire venue, including its 83 bedrooms, Lakeside Hideaway Cottage and 350 acres of ancient woodland, this beautiful venue is the ultimate Irish wedding destination.

The ceremony can take place in the elegant drawing room or even outside in the gardens overlooking Lough Corrib with a stunning castle backdrop. Your show-stopping reception can take place in the Oak Hall at the heart of the castle, accommodating up to 160 guests. If you would prefer a church wedding, a number of beautiful churches are located in the castle grounds, allowing you and your guests to move easily between the ceremony and reception.

If you’re looking for a more intimate celebration, their Connaught and Inglenook rooms can accommodate up to 40 guests in an exquisite affair.

Brides also have access to the Reagan Presidential Suite – a private wing of the castle – or the exclusive Lakeside Hideaway Cottage on the water’s edge of the lake.

With some stunning photo opportunities, don’t hesitate to contact Ashford Castle for your ideal wedding.

"I wish I had the words to describe our stay at the castle...WHAT an affair it was! We enjoyed it all from June 14-19th, 2016 with 187 guests. The castle is magical indeed. From the bagpipe arrival to the tearful and heartfelt departure, we were welcome and family. The newly renovated castle is the finest in the world. The staff is friendly, helpful, professional and accommodating in every way. Fishing, hawking, clay birding, boat riding...there's something for all. The food was very good...Lest I not forget the wedding planner, Olivia Buckley, who was a take charge person and made everything flow smoothly. She was truly special. Did I mention the fireworks display at midnight?!! OMG, New York's 4th of July celebration took a bow to it. Hope she will come to Texas and visit?! We already plan to make many more trips to the "castle". Yes, my son and daughter-in-law's wedding here was magical!"
