We Love These Award-Winning Irish Wedding Venues


If you are hunting for a wedding venue in Ireland, you’re in the right place! There are so many fabulous choices available to you, whether you are after a majestic castle, a classy hotel, a country house venue, and everything in between. But what’s one thing that makes a venue stand out from the rest? The awards! These award-winning Irish wedding venues have proven that they are the cream of the crop.
