As we head into Summer 2019, we find that more and more couples are hoping to incorporate the outdoors into their big day. Perhaps the memories of our fantastic summer in 2018 have made us all a little bit more optimistic about our Irish weather! Whilst the Irish weather is incredibly unpredictable, it is still very possible for you to plan and enjoy an Irish outdoor wedding ceremony or reception party. We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite outdoor venues in Ireland for you and your intended to explore.
Ballyvolane House, Cork
Ballyvolane House is one of the most picturesque venues in Ireland. Beautifully landscaped gardens, lakes and woodland, make this the number one choice for many of our Brides and Grooms. Should the weather deteriorate in any way, the team at Ballyvolane House can offer you a number of indoor alternatives.
Harvey’s Point, Donegal
Harvey’s Point in Donegal is an incredible location to say ‘I Do’, whether you decide to exchange vows indoors or lakeside. The attention to detail shown by the Harvey’s Point events team is second to none and you can be assured they’ll make your day one to remember, whatever the weather!
Glenview Hotel, Wicklow
The Glenview Hotel in County Wicklow offers you everything you need both indoor and out for civil ceremonies and wedding receptions. In fact, the Glenview have gone one step further and won’t charge you any extra to host your civil ceremony on their grounds if you have also booked the reception here.
The Haven Hotel, Waterford
The Haven Hotel in Waterford is situated in Dunmore East and will make a wonderful backdrop for your wedding photographs and videography. What we love about this place is its proximity to the beach, which is perfect for those unique wedding shots. The hotel is fully equipped and certified for outdoor ceremonies on the lawn and can cater for up to 250 guests.
Kilshane House, Tipperary
Kilshane House is a breath-taking Regency house with a traditional conservatory that is perfect for those who may want the best of both worlds on their wedding day. The hotel has put a lot of thought into their outdoor ceremonies and offer a floating pagoda on their very own lake or lakeside in one of their secret garden locations. You really couldn’t ask for a better start to your married life!
Whether you opt for a traditional civil ceremony on the grounds of a hotel or in a HSE registered site that is close to your heart, Ireland now offers a multitude of options for those who want to take the plunge and exchange their vows outdoors.
