Peace & Privacy – 10 Top Wedding Venues that are Exclusively Yours

Rosedale House, Co. Dublin

The romantic Rosedale house is a classic exclusive wedding venue with a unique and contemporary twist – this elegant country house is not only home to some seriously stylish themed rooms, it also has its own private nightclub and luxurious piano bar. The romantic, private Rosedale is neatly tucked away in south county Dublin, overlooking the Irish Sea. Guests will no doubt be bowled over by the rustic countryside feel which is brilliantly contrasted by the elegant, modern interiors of this historical house. Although the venue is ideal for an intimate celebration, it can cater for a larger event with a purpose built marquee set in their walled garden. Treat your guests to cocktails in the piano bar the night before the big day, and a hog roast in the Rose garden the day after, or create your own bespoke weekend with the help of the wedding team.
