Ashley Park House is a peaceful haven on the edge of Lough Ourna in the heart of Tipperary, a stones throw from Nenagh. If you are looking for a beautiful exclusive venue, steeped in character offering quality, style and attentive service in the tradition of the Irish country house then it is the perfect setting for your perfect day.

Set in 76 acres of beech woodland and formal walled gardens, the historic country house provides a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos, surrounded by lush gardens and gazing over the lake.  With an excellent reputation for hosting weddings over the past 25 years at Ashley Park House we host weddings as if they were for our own family.

Celebrate with an onsite Civil or Humanist ceremony in our stunning Boathouse ceremony room overlooking the lake or else arrive to enjoy your reception after a local church ceremony.

The lakeside pavilion is decorated with sparkling lights, candles and neutral decor to compliment the fabulous views of the floor to ceiling windows out over the sweeping lawn to the lake.  All table settings include quality white linen, Chiavari chairs, crystal wine glasses, fresh garden flowers and Prince Albert crockery to ensure you can arrive relaxed to enjoy your special day.

With on site accommodation available in 50 stylish guest rooms and cottages dotted around the grounds, plus local accommodation a ten minute shuttle bus ride away it means that all guests are nearby.

We have a fantastic team of chefs who prepare delicious meals using as much locally sourced produce as possible and we are justifiably very proud of the quality food offering we provide at Ashley Park House.

Please get in contact via email to arrange a viewing appointment as we would love to prepare a bespoke quotation for your special day.

We decided to go ahead and plan a small covid wedding. We did a quick google search of wedding locations near us and stumbled across Ashley Park House. I got in contact with Margaret, who has very helpful and kind and we arranged a tasting, as food would be very important to us as a couple. From the first bite of our meal we were hooked! Here are the main reasons I could not recommend Ashley Park House more to you even if I tried. 1. The food is AMAZING The food is spectacular. I could not speak more highly of it. Everything and every aspect of the meal, canapés & late night snacks were delicious. People were unbelievably impressed at the quality and taste of the food. I would easily go back and have a meal here again as it was restaurant quality. The choice is spectacular and Ashley Park House is extremely accommodating if you need to chop or change anything due to allergies etc.. 2. The location and grounds Ashley Park House is set by a lake and has a beautiful garden. The grounds and garden are kept immaculately. Everyone at our wedding took multiple walks through the gardens and admired the beauty and colours. They take real pride in their vicinity. We had our ceremony on site in the Boathouse and this was just perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking of having a wedding here to do a ceremony onsite as it was beyond words perfect & a backdrop like this doesn't come by too often. The marquee was perfectly set up and looked stunning. Location itself was easily accessible and no bother to find. You will be blown away by the beauty of the place. 3. Service The staff at Ashley Park House made our day memorable beyond words. From the outset throughout the entire day, they were extremely accommodating, helpful and insightful. Nothing was too much trouble or hassle. The staff were better organised than the bride and without them, the day would have fallen apart. Massive, massive thank you to Lara and Yaka (i am very sorry if the names are misspelt) & all other staff who were so supportive, kind and insightful and really put you at ease throughout the day. The whole day was orchestrated by them and they really helped the day flow smoothly and efficiently. The staff did an amazing job looking after us on our big day. All in all, our day was perfect thanks to the knowledge and helpfulness of the staff at Ashley Park House. This venue is unique and wonderful. Thank you Ashley Park House for the most memorable day of our lives.

There are no words to describe how wonderful Ashley Park House is. Due to new restrictions we had to change our wedding venue 4 days before our wedding and we are so happy we did!! Margaret Jaka and all the staff were so welcoming, calm, helpful and kind to us. The setting itself is stunning but what really makes this venue is the people! Covid has been a hard time for everyone and Brides and Grooms are so worried 'what would a Covid wedding look like'. After having our day, I honestly wouldn't have had it anywhere else or any different! Its was intimate and fun and Ashley Park House made this for us. No request was too silly or not possible! We had all our guests and suppliers take an antigen test from Covisal at our wedding and Ashley Park Staff were no different. This gave everyone an extra layer of comfort for the day and we are so grateful Ashley Park were so accommodating with this! We had the time of our lives and would highly recommend this venue to everyone!! :) P.S Any Covid Couples, don't worry, take the leap and you will have the best day ever. Just make sure your venue are as helpful as Ashley Park :)

It is very hard to put into words how accommodating and helpful the staff at Ashley Park were to us when planning our wedding. As a couple who originally wanted 250 people at our wedding, all at Ashley Park made planning our wedding of 25 guests stress free and exciting even through all the uncertainty. The venue itself is stunningly beautiful and made an intimate wedding that bit more special. We got married in the ceremony room in December and even still the sun shone through and the views as we said our vows were the perfect back drop. To this day our guests still talk to us about how friendly and efficient the staff were in Ashley park. By the end of the day all our guests knew the staff members names and vice versa. The food was presented so well and tasted delicious. It is always a good sign when you see your guests taking pictures of their plates before they dug in! Margaret, Lara and Yaka used their vast experience of weddings throughout the day to make sure our day ran smoothly. They told us when was the best time to get pictures taken so that we got the best light, when to do group photos and any extra duties we asked of them were done with a smile. They were a dream to work with and I could not recommend them enough. Overall Ashley parked ticked all the boxes for us. Stunning venue, gorgeous accommodation for all guests, delicious food and amazing staff. We cannot speak highly enough of them. They made our wedding day the best day ever for us even in the middle of a pandemic.

What an incredible venue for a wedding. We celebrated our big day in early March and it couldn't have been any better. Margaret and her team were exceptional in the run up to the day with easy planning and even topped that on the day. The food was excellent, too. The feedback we got from our guests was throughout positive, people loved their rooms, the party, the dinner, the breakfast, literally everything that was provided by Ashley Park House. I honestly couldn't speak high enough of the venue and recommend it to anyone who wants to ensure a great party with all guests being happy! Thanks again to everyone, you made our big day even more special!

I have never reviewed a wedding before now and I have attended many, but after attending my cousin’s wedding at Ashley Park House in February this year I had to put pen to paper. The venue was spectacular, the views of the lake absolutely breathtaking. The house and marquee were stunning, and the food was of a very high standard. The staff was so professional and the bride and groom looked relaxed and radiant all day, there seemed to be no stress whatsover. My cousin told me that the team there took care of everything, they organized a local hair and make-up person, a florist, and a humanist as my cousin had travelled over from Scotland and didn’t have the contacts locally. I have been at quite a few weddings, and have enjoyed many, but there really was something very special about this venue.I have two daughters and if/when the time comes for booking a wedding I will be highly recommending Ashley Park. It was a stunning unforgettable day, well done to all involved.

We recently got married in Ashley Park House(14-12-2019). From start to finish, Margaret & her staff were just amazing! We chose to get married in the Boathouse, it was everything we could have hoped for. The decor, food, facilities and general attention to detail was second to none. We would highly recommend this venue,it provides everything you need- ceremony,amazing food& drink, accommodation and a stunning backdrop for photographs! Our family & friends had a wonderful day and people are still talking about the food & mulled wine! Thank you to everyone at APH for making our day so special!

We had our wedding reception in October at Ashley Park House. The experience was flawless from start to finish. From the moment we arrived, the reception, the dinner, the food, a fine dining experience, the quality of service, the warmest and most efficient staff and a beautiful setting. We could not have asked for better. Margaret, Lucy and Colette were so amazing to deal with throughout the planning process and replied to all of our queries without delay. People were raving about how amazing the venue was after the wedding and still are one month on. We are so thrilled we chose APH! You guys are amazing!

We were delighted that we chose to have our wedding at Ashley Park House. Everything was amazing. Our guests absolutely raved about the venue and food. Highlights for me were definitely the setting on the lake and we were blessed with a beautiful September day. Food was amazing. Staff were attentive. Everything ran so smoothly. I honestly can’t think of anything that I would change and I’m looking forward to returning to visit the venue again the next time that I am in Ireland. A huge thank you to everyone at Ashley Park House!

Ashley Park House is a beautiful old country house set on gorgeous grounds just outside Nenagh with walled gardens, an amazing lake and wonderfully decorated rooms and accommodations. We choose these venue after looking at so many places in Ireland for our wedding, Ashley Park House has everything! A lake house ceremony room on site (like nothing I've seen anywhere else) a gorgeous country house and gardens for reception celebrations and a separate large conservatory room for dining and dancing. Along with the natural beauty of the surroundings the old house has been maintained and decorated so wonderfully while newer rooms in surrounding old stable buildings have a modern twist while still in fitting with the country spot. The staff could not have done enough for us and made everything just so enjoyable. Thank you so much to Margaret and her amazing team! We could not be happier having chosen Ashley Park House and look back with amazing memories of a fabulous place. Highly recommended.

Hello Karen and John, thank you so much for your review. We are so glad to hear that you found what you were looking for in a wedding venue when you arrived at APH. Our Boathouse Ceremony Room is so wonderful, it's such a tranquil location virtually floating on the water for saying 'I do'. We are so glad to hear that you appreciated our natural surroundings with our nature reserve, and our twist of modern style mixed with the historic country house. It really is a pleasure hosting weddings so thank you on behalf of the whole team. We hope to see you again soon.

We had our wedding in Ashley Park on June 8th and honestly the day exceeded all our expectations. The venue has a stunning location on the side of the lake, and has a very relaxing atmosphere. This is complimented by the staff who are so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. They were very accommodating and they were more than willing to stay back and serve us in the marquee for the residents bar and didn't make us feel in any way rushed. So many people have commented on the quality of the food, it really is a step above. All the food is fresh, and the flavours and presentation are excellent. I'm so glad we chose this venue, and we wouldn't have changed a single thing. Our experience with Ashley Park House was very positive, and I would not hesitate in recommending it to any other couples thinking of getting married there.

Ashley Park was the most wonderful setting for our wedding four weeks ago. We cannot praise the staff and the venue enough. Margaret, Colleen and Lucy were just awesome to deal with, so much so that once we had finalised our date- we had to do very little, they took care of everything. The day itself could not have gone better, we didn't have to worry about a thing all night. We chose the regular package and the staff were brilliant- no one ever had an empty glass, whilst guests keep praising the food that was served. The bridal suite is beautiful and the rooms in the house are huge period bedrooms. The guestrooms in the courtyard are modern, and so comfortable with unserfloor heating. Our photographer was able to catch brilliant shots all around the property.

Food and venue make up for the fact that Ashley seem pretty new to hosting weddings. You are pretty much left to fend for yourself during the day itself. For example, no one will be there to lead the couple into the dinner at the start..we had no idea which way we should have walked! We also had to ask for some wine to be brought to the top table during the toasts. The organiser was also quite difficult to reach in the run up to the wedding, a lot of repeat calls and emails! Oh and worth noting that bands are unable to use their own PA system, you must use Ashley's. As stated above the venue is amazing and the food is excellent but be prepared to deal with organisers who are not experienced in hosting weddings...yet.
Response from Ashley Park House
Thank you for your review Gary, we are happy to hear that your wedding food was excellent, we will pass on your compliments to our chefs. We are though sorry to hear that you felt that we let you down in anyway. We have a fantastic team at Ashley Park House who love hosting weddings and ensuring that our couples enjoy attentive service. We have now updated our pavilion roof to ensure that it is soundproofed so bands and dj’s can now either use their own system or plug into our sound system. We do hope to see you and Sarah back at Ashley Park House again soon so we can chat about your experience as we find that the best way to deal with any queries which may arise. Otherwise would you like to give us a call on 067 38223 as we'd love to hear from you.

From our first visit to Ashley Park House we knew it was the place where we would get married, it offered everything we were looking for - beautiful scenery, amazing food, exclusive use of the venue and stunning spaces for our wedding and reception with space for all of our guests. When we first viewed the ceremony space, it was little more than foundations in the ground but the view was enough for us to decide that was where we would have our ceremony! Living abroad we weren’t able to go to the venue whenever we needed so we relied on a lot of emails and phone calls with the venue. At times this was stressful but you have to put your trust in your chosen suppliers and it was perfect on the day. The business and venue were expanding as we planned and the team has since grown to match! All of our guests are still raving about the food and hospitality they received over our wedding weekend. We were able to take over the venue from Saturday to Monday and throw the biggest party of our lives! Our wedding surpassed our wildest dreams, we’ll look back in years to come and remember what an amazing time we had at Ashley Park House - we look forward to returning to stay for a more understated weekend!

Margaret and her staff pulled out all the stops on our wedding day. It's such a private, intimate and fairy tale setting and we couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else. We had a spiritual ceremony in the Boathouse and it is such a unique and special venue and nothing else like it in Ireland. The photo opportunities on the grounds are endless, the gardens and lakefront are so beautiful and the option of around and inside the house itself. We loved the whole style of the venue both old and new parts which are so tastefully finished, right down to the choice of crystal glassware and Royal Albert tea set provided for all the wedding guests on the day. We were also really pleased with the menu choices and the food provided throughout the day, they know what they are doing when it comes to their food! As they were developing additional accommodation at the time we did have some uncertainty about the final capacity and some of our guests were disappointed that they didn't get the opportunity to stay there. Overall we would highly recommend Ashley Park for your special day.

Hello Martina & Steve, thank you for your fantastic review and we do love to pull out all the stops for our couples. We are so glad you enjoyed our mix of old and new with our new styles mixed with classical country house style. Our Royal Albert tea set is a favourite of many guests. It really is like stepping back in time to enjoy a different era whilst surrounded by the tranquility of the woodland and lake views. It's true, our chefs really do know what they are doing when it comes to food so we will pass on your compliments. We have now completed all of the new Coach House rooms so over 100 guests can now stay on site to enjoy such a special event. We hope to see you back at Ashley Park House again soon.

We found Ashley Park House and owner, Margaret MacKenzie, provided an excellent service and made our day very special for us, our family and guests. She provided great value and very personable service. When and as aspects of our planning changed due to various factors, Ashley Park House was always on hand to assist us. The venue of house, grounds and facilities are truly unique and significantly added to the atmosphere of the day. If we are to look for any fault, it would be that at times some email responses were a little slow. However, this is understandable given the the venue is a small family run operation and not a corporate entity. The family run aspect is one of the benefits of the venue's unique atmosphere and personable service that a corporate orientated venue could never replicate. Recent expansion of the room and stay-over capacity did lead to a slight confusion as the rooms are given names and at time of our planning (and allocating guests to rooms) we were temporarily caught in the old and new room names, but this was resolved. We can not recommend Ashley Park House, Margaret MacKenzie and the amazing staff enough. The food was exceptional and its delivery to all tables was faultless. The whole day went without a hitch including the wedding ceremony in the grounds. We found we did not have to worry about anything on the day. We look forward to being their guests annually on our anniversary.

Hi Karen and Niall, Thank you for the wonderful review. We are really pleased you enjoyed the day and every one had a wonderful time. We are especially pleased to hear every one enjoyed the food.

We recently celebrated our wedding reception in Ashley Park House and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice of venue. We were lucky to have been able to have the place to ourselves for the entire weekend and it really was a special experience. The venue itself is truly amazing with the stunning scenery providing a wonderful backdrop for the day. The lake, walled gardens and jetty provided some amazing photo opportunities which meant we didn’t have to travel long distances for photos and instead enjoy time with friends and family at our drinks reception. In addition to the grounds the house itself is truly magical old world, maintained to the highest standard and with the modern pavilion it really does provide the best of both worlds. The bedrooms were wonderful each with its own unique theme and décor. Anyone who stayed were more than complimentary. There is also a number of recently developed rooms adjacent to the main house which are wonderfully decorated and testament to Margaret’s attention to detail. The pavilion is an amazing venue and can cater for wedding of all sizes up to 280 if memory serves us correctly. We had approximately 130 people and were slightly worried that it may look bare but having seen the venue set up for a wedding of 80 people all concerns were alleviated. The food at Ashley Park really is gorgeous and the one thing guests will not be is hungry! The food is in fact so good we are still receiving positive comments from guests who were so impressed by the quality and quantity. From the canapés which were out of this world right through to the BBQ we could not have asked for better. The menu at Ashley Park is quite expansive so the food tasting was of huge benefit as we were able to try a number of dishes and taste the various wines on offer. It was a really nice evening and really gave us a feel for what Margaret and her team are about. In build up to the wedding Margaret could not have been any more helpful. She always made herself available for calls or visits to the venue and provided recommendations on different ways we could organise the venue. She was definitely a calming influence on us in the run up to the wedding and no request was too big or small for her to help us with. Over the course of the weekend Margaret and her team pulled out all the stops, the attention to detail and attentiveness really made an impression on guests who still comment on how nice the staff were. The staff were on first name basis with most of the guests. Nothing was too much trouble across the entire weekend and everything ran perfectly without any issues. If you are looking for a country house experience we don’t think you will find any that do it better than Margaret and her team.

We stumbled upon Ashley Park after traveling the length and breadth of the country looking for the perfect place for our special day. We entered the gate not knowing what to expect and were met with a long avenue enclosed by trees that opened out to the most idyllic setting with Ashley Park House perched on the side of a magnificent lake. As we got closer we noticed the fixed marquee with full glass side looking onto the lake. We were greeted by a cheerful Margaret MacKenzie, the lady of the house who showed us around the house, the adjoining marquee and breath-taking gardens. We were immediately enthralled with the place and its wonderful charm and the sheer enthusiasm of Margaret and her love of the place. After speaking with Margaret it became clear that the place meant a lot to her, and it was clear she had immersed herself in the house to develop it to it’s current splendour and it was clear that this would be ongoing fruit of hard labour with bigger and brighter things to come. Margaret’s pitch was all related to the quality of food and friendly service and she did not disappoint. Our wedding took place on a sunny Saturday in July with the theme of the day being ‘jaysus ye are blessed with the weather’. This allowed us to take full advantage of Ashley Park’s wonderful natural features centred on the lake. Our guests were treated to wonderful lake views while sampling a mixture of traditional and imaginative canapés. It was a very chilled out atmosphere and we had ample time to soak it all in. We then moved to the marquee for the main meal and wedding formalities. It’s worth noting that the marquee itself is absolutely beautiful and decorated very tastefully with no need for any extra decoration. The centre-pieces were lovely fresh flowers and added to the classic feel of the venue. And then there was the food, we went with a choice of starter between salmon and duck salad of which I sampled both. They were delicious and the soup that followed was top class also. Our mains were a choice of beef and sea bass, both of which received rave reviews! And then of course there was the dessert, a choice of Lemon tart or pear and almond tart which were both exquisite. It is a testament to the quality of the food that six months later we are still receiving compliments from friends and family and we are delighted with this. The venue was ideal for the evening part of our wedding, the younger crowd were free to run wild on the dance floor while the more reserved guests could kick back in the snug or even huddle around the fires outside and enjoy the Ashley park for us is a hidden gem that is constantly building as the weeks and months go on, we noticed significant progress running up to our wedding, particularly in relation to the accommodation. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice of wedding venue. Our friends, like ourselves are of that age where they are accustomed to the ‘wedding circuit’ and the verdict was unanimous; Ashley park is a top class venue and is something a bit different.

We held our wedding in August this year at Ashley Park House and, from beginning to end, our experience with Margaret & her team was fantastic. We will always remember our wedding weekend as being truly magical. The setting is enchanting; from the minute you turn into the the driveway, to the house itself, the gardens, gate lodges and the lake. We chose to have an outdoor ceremony to make the most of the beautiful natural surroundings and Margaret & her team pulled out all the stops to make sure the sprinkling of rain didn't detract from our plans. Many of our guests commented on the beautiful setting overlooking the lake & the sun even made an appearance just in time! The pavilion overlooking the lake provided a really unique setting for our wedding dinner. Margaret has thought of all the little details from the entrance area to the chairs through to the chequered dance floor & wonderful planting inside & out. High draped ceilings, chandeliers & a glass wall looking out on to the lake finish off this stunning space. This was the setting for fantastic food, timely & excellent service, followed by late night dancing & general revelry until the wee hours. We could not have asked for more from Margaret & her team. They were attentive, personable & accommodating in every way from the moment we first viewed the venue. We feel that we found a true hidden gem and have no doubt that Ashley Park House is going to be a hugely popular wedding venue in the years to come. While part of us would love it to remain a hidden gem forever, it's simply too good not to share.

The venue and its staff are faultless. Beautiful grounds (gardens & lake), lovely bedrooms (each unique, request a room on the 1st floor), relaxed atmosphere, and friendly staff whenever you needed them. Nothing was too much effort and Margaret & co made sure we were relaxed and happy at all times. Margaret, the owner, never seemed stressed, worried, or put out in anyway. She was the perfect host, and also the perfect coordinator in the run-up to the wedding. She was the epitome of relaxed, at least to the guests :) As we had the venue exclusively it felt like being at home but with much nicer surroundings. All our guests loved it, especially those that stayed overnight. Many didn't want to leave and many plan to be back. The food was also so nice and the whole setup is old-style rustic glamour. We were so happy with the venue we chose, and it helped make our wedding very memorable. It looked great in the photos too.

We hosted our wedding reception in Ashley Park House in September 2015. The peace and old world charm of the house stole our hearts when we first saw it and we knew we had to have our reception there. It was the perfect venue for our sixty guests. The setting of the house beside a lake, the walled gardens and the beauty of the individually designed rooms made the wedding experience one we’ll treasure forever. The food on offer was amazing, all of our guests commented on the quality of food they received and we’ve never seen a better breakfast spread in all our travels! The staff were so friendly and helpful to everyone. Margaret is an amazing lady, we had nothing to worry about on the day as she looked after our every need. We could not fault anything. Ashley Park House has left us with amazing memories and we’d highly recommend it.

We had an absolutely wonderful day. The organisation was smooth and efficient and all our wishes were met. Margaret and the team organised almost everything, which left very little for us to do which was particularly great for us as we live in the UK. The day itself went really smooth. Everything was perfect. Margaret and her team were just wonderful. Ashley park is such a beautiful venue and everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Our guests really enjoyed the day. They loved the venue, the food and the event itself. The food was absolutely delicious. There was a good variety available for when we choose the menu. On the day itself it exceeded our expectations and you could tell that the produce was of very high quality and was very well cooked. We had a lot of really good feedback from our guest regarding the food. Overall it was a wonderful day and we are very glad we choose Ashley Park for our special day.
