The Carrickdale Hotel & Spa is a stunning wedding venue in County Louth.  Its stunning landscaped gardens is simply beautiful for photography and our ballrooms are refurbished to reflect the highest standards we offer at the Carrickdale Hotel.  

With 110 luxurious bedrooms, your guests can enjoy the wedding day itself and dance into the early hours and make a night of it. 

Why not relax in our Serenity Spa's superb thermal suite and peaceful treatment rooms or after the wedding in our outdoor hot tub overlooking the superb gardens with the Cooley and Mourne Mountains as its backdrop. 

For summer weddings, we have a garden bar and barbecue which we can offer our couples to continue their celebrations the following day.

We had booked our wedding for August 2020, with covid restrictions we then changed it to February 2021. With a new lockdown on the cards and with a few days notice we brought the big forward to New Years Eve 2020. What can we say, a day of perfection from start to finish. Michelle and her team pulled out all the stops to make our day extra special. The Carrickdale were so accommodating and went above and beyond, a perfect day from start to finish. Jo and Paul behind the bar were so welcoming and made all our guests feel so relaxed. From the food to the service to the atmosphere it was outstanding! The Christmas decor was fabulous for the photos. We would highly recommended the Carrickdale to anyone, nothing was a problem and we can’t wait to get back.

We had our wedding here in December 2020 under Covid restrictions we were only able to have 25 guests. To most people the thought of this would be terrifying but Michelle made our experience so easy and stress free. She helped us out every step of the way and we felt completely taken care of! I cannot recommend the Carrickdale Hotel enough for anyone who is getting married. They went above and beyond to make sure that everything was running smootly and that everything was taken care of. I was extremely impressed with how they catered so well to my vegan diet. We really had the best day, despite the restrictions that were in place at the time!

We held our wedding reception in the Bernish Suite of the Carrickdale on Monday 28th December 2020. Our wedding co-ordinator David could not have done enough for us, especially as we had to postpone our wedding from July to December. It was an extremely stressful time, trying to plan a wedding with the ever-changing restrictions but the Carrickdale went above and beyond to make it a smooth process. We could not recommend the Carrickdale enough. The service was fantastic, the food was amazing, and the staff were brilliant. The Bernish suite décor was beautiful and the gardens were the perfect location for our wedding photos. Even with the restrictions and the reduced numbers we had the best day and would not change a thing. We can not thank the Carrickdale enough for everything they did to make our day so special. We would highly recommend the Carrickdale to any couple looking for a wedding venue. Thanks for everything!!

On Saturday December 26th 2020, our wedding reception took place in the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa. We would like express our sincere appreciation to the McParland family, Michelle Barrett (our wedding co-ordinator), and all of the staff of this fabulous hotel and wedding venue. We can’t even begin to imagine how difficult this past 12 months has been for the owners, management and staff of the Carrickdale, however not one portion of this hardship, financial or otherwise, was passed on to us at any stage. We originally booked the Lacey’s Suite for July 25th and Michelle had planned an amazing summer wedding for us. Due to the pandemic, we had to postpone and reschedule. Throughout our entire wedding process, Michelle was outstanding. From the very first phone call in March, Michelle endeavoured to ensure we had the Wedding Day that we always dreamed of. Despite the ever-changing guidelines, Michelle continuously worked closely with us to make all of the necessary re-arrangements. She was always there for us and genuinely cared. We cannot thank her enough. We always wanted to get married in the Carrickdale, however our Wedding Day exceeded all of our expectations. From the picturesque gardens that we used for our photographs, to the spectacular décor and surroundings in the Bernish Suite for our reception, we and our guests were blown away. The service and meal provided was top class, as once again Michelle, and the staff, ensured that everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish. It was a day we will never forget. We would highly recommend the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa to any recently engaged couple who are planning a wedding. We certainly hope to be able to celebrate many more happy occasions here in the years ahead and look forward to returning to the hotel in the near future. Look no further for the perfect wedding venue!

We booked our wedding with the Carrickdale last minute as our original hotel cancelled. From the first time we got in contact with the hotel they have been nothing but amazing!! They were so accommodating, and went the extra mile to ensure our day was an amazing day we will never forget! Both David and especially Peter were absolutely amazing!! I’m actually delighted that the original hotel cancelled cuz there was nothing could’ve matched the service we received from the staff in the carrickdale!! The food was five star! All the guests raved about it! And the service left absolutely nothing to be desired! The accommodation was top class!! The only downside is now that I’m married I can’t book them for another wedding!!! They definitely know how to make a small wedding feel like it’s as big as the biggest one they ever thrown!

We had our wedding at the Carrickdale on Friday 23 October 2020. Where do I start , just brilliant service from start to finish . Michelle our wedding coordinator was just fantastic, with so much uncertainty with our wedding due to covid restrictions , Michelle went above and beyond to keep in touch with us the whole time in the run up to our wedding to make sure things went ok . We are very fortunate for our wedding to go ahead . The staff , the food , the service was just brilliant . We had the best day with our 25 guests and wouldn’t have it any other way .

We got married on 3rd October 2020 with reduced numbers at the Carrickdale Hotel, Co. Louth. I want to put up this post to recommend to other brides and grooms how amazing the Carrickdale were to both of us. Our wedding was everything we could have asked for with our closest family and friends. We abided by the social distancing regulations and still had an unbelievable wedding. The food, service and attention to detail were fantastic. If I could do it all over again I would.

We held our wedding reception in the Bernish Suite of the Carrickdale on 02/10/2020. Our wedding co-ordinator Michelle couldn't have done enough for us, especially through this difficult time. Planning a wedding through Covid-19 hasnt being easy but the Carrickdale helped us in every way possible.  Everything from start to finish was brillant, the food was beautful and the staff were great. The gardens are a pertect location for wedding photos and the Bernish Suite decor is stylish and elegant. We highly reccommend the Carrickdale to any couple looking for a wedding venue. Thanks again for everything.

This hotel did everything they could for us in what was a strange time to get married. They accommodated many date and number changes. Our wedding co-ordinator david did everything he could for us and was always very open honest and empathetic. We had an amazing day with close family and friends, it might not have been the wedding we planned but it was still amazing and very special. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. My guests all enjoyed the accomadation and facilities the hotel had to offer. Happy bride and groom.
