The Wedding Venue Straight Out Of A Fairytale Book

Once upon a time...

You bring the tiara, they'll do the rest...

If there's one thing Ireland has no shortage of, it's castles. 

So it makes sense for castle venues to be amongst the most popular between both Irish couples and international pairs flying in to say 'I do'. Packed with history and charm, there are some truly magical spaces to host your nuptials in around the country, where you can have a modern wedding against a traditional backdrop, or plan a classically beautiful do in the gorgeous castle surrounds. 

One venue that offers both options is Co Monaghan’s, Castle Leslie Estate. One of the finest country estates in Ireland, the venue has been in the hands of the Leslie family since the 1600s. It’s been hailed as Europe’s most romantic hotel and, with 1,000 acres of countryside, including ancient woodland and lakes, it’s undoubtedly a scenic setting for the big day. 

While weddings and ceremonies of all sizes are accommodated, the hotel has over 100 bedrooms, across the castle itself, the Lodge, the Old Stable Mews and village cottages. The castle can hold midweek weddings of up to 70 guests, while The Pavilion (which overlooks Glaslough Lake) can accommodate up to 260.

If an outdoor wedding is on your wish list, there are spots in woodland, by the lakes or in the gardens, in which to make your vows. However, if a religious ceremony is what you have in mind for your big day, there is also the picturesque St Salvator’s Church on the estate.

A truly private rural escape, and one of the most renowned luxury hotels in Ireland, it is a magical setting for your very special day. A selection of exclusive 2019 winter and early 2020 wedding dates are available at very special rates. Enquire directly for more details.

Located in the village of Glaslough, Co. Monaghan, the Estate is only 80 minutes from Dublin, 60 minutes from Belfast and a million miles from anywhere...
