Dromoland Castle – an idyllic wedding venue!

 

The magnificent Dromoland Castlein Co. Clare was built in the 16th century and has a beautiful historical renaissance feel to it. This five star castle is approached by twisting country roads with a glistening lake and superb golf course in the backdrop. The estate sits on 410 acres of land providing plenty of opportunity for romantic walks through the gardens, photographs beside fountains and the estate itself is an ideal backdrop for a wedding.

 

The Castle boasts three suitable areas for your wedding reception. The Terrace Room offers a bright and spacious feel with its floor to ceiling windows with magnificent views of the castle estate. It is suitable for 31 to 70 guests. The Drawing Room has a much cosier feel and will serve parties of 10 to 30 guests. This room offers massive fireplaces and portraits of Irish royalty hanging on the walls. The Brian Boru Room caters for weddings up to 300 people and room has a unique romantic atmosphere with historical banners, wooden beams and hanging chandeliers.

 

Dromoland Castle has various packages to offer their guests depending on time of year, number of guests and what services you require. It is a five star hotel to begin with so you are looking in the more expensive bracket for your reception. There are many menu options available with a wide range of choices and a complimenting wine menu. The food is seen as exquisite and lives up to the reputation of one of the best wedding reception venues in Ireland. There is a full listing for red and white wines as well as champagne, rose and sparking wine. The hotel however does not provide the service of corkage. The bar stays open until midnight and the hotel can provide a late bar until 2am if required.

 

The hotel possesses one of the finest golf courses in Ireland and several other sporting facilities are available on site such as falconry, clay pigeon shooting, tennis and archery. With its magnificent relaxing spas, leisure centre with pool, sauna and Jacuzzi it offers fantastic relaxing opportunities as well for your guests to enjoy post wedding.

 

For guests travelling from abroad, Shannon Airportis a mere 8 miles away from the Castle with Galway and Limerickcity being very close by also. Several tourist attractions such as the Cliffs of Moher and Bunratty Castle are but a short distance away.
Dromoland Castle is one of my favourite wedding destinations in Ireland. For those of you willing to travel or if you live in the West of Ireland it should definitely be on your shortlist. Its picturesque and panoramic views compliment the luxurious old world elegance makes Dromoland Castle one of Ireland’s most stunning and spectacular wedding locations.
