Mount Falcon was originally constructed to gain a lady’s hand in marriage and to this day it remains one of Ireland's most romantic settings for a wedding reception. Whether it be a cosy mulled wine and roaring turf fire winter wedding or a champagne reception on the lawn during summer; Mount Falcon has gained a reputation as being a premier wedding reception venue. 

Great locations for indoor and outdoor photos 

100 acres of manicured lawns and mature forest provide the ideal backdrop for photo opportunities however should it rain, our restored Victorian Gothic style house has ample residents lounges and a sweeping staircase which are perfect for indoor photographs. 

Accommodation & Spa 

Catering from a minimum of 100 people to a maximum of 190; Mount Falcon prides itself on the intimacy of country house to the vibrancy of a 4 star deluxe venue. Consisting of 32 bedrooms in the hotel ( including 2 suites and 4 deluxe rooms in the main house ) and 30 self catering 3 and 4 bedroom luxury lodges dotted around the estate in Lakeside, Courtyard and Woodland settings. None of which are any further that 300 meters from the main hotel. Thus giving us a total complement of 122 bedrooms.

Mount falcon is the most beautiful wedding location. So romantic, exclusive and just perfect in every way..the grounds, the food, the rooms, the wedding planner. I would recommend Mount falcon to anyone getting married in mayo. The team made our wedding day just perfect Thank you. I felt so at home that weekend I didn’t want to leave. Alexa is an absolute asset to mount falcon. We were a bit worried with being living in Australia and the changes in wedding planners and some discrepancies in the information passed across. The moment I met Alexa two weeks before the wedding I was immediately put at ease she is so friendly, completely on the ball and nothing was too much hassle. He organisation skills are unreal which was perfect as I was a bit overwhelmed with everything. Thank you Alexa. x

We would like to sincerely thank Mount Falcon and their team, in particular Alexa and Marcus, for over-seeing our wedding day and weekend between July 12-14th 2019. It can be difficult planning a wedding from overseas, but Mount Falcon was the perfect choice for us. On the weekend itself- Alexa and Marcus helped everything run flawlessly. Our friends loved Jonathan who served our guests from our Friday evening drinks reception through late drinks in the lounge on Sunday. Our guests loved the live music in the bar the evening before the wedding. On the day, they raved about the food, and everyone unanimously loved the garden potato soup. For our day 2 BBQ, the set-up was beautiful- and the selection of food was excellent. We highly recommend Mount Falcon Estate for any couples looking to have their wedding in a beautiful manor house setting.

Alexa, thank you for all you did for us for the wedding, it was such an amazing day. During the lead-up to the wedding, you were always there to answer our questions and deal with everything in a professional and courteous manner. We appreciate it so much. The day went so well and everyone enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks again to all of the team. I can't wait to see all of the photos. Many many thanks Alexa. We would love to come back again to stay perhaps during winter. I will be in touch. All the best Collette and Brian

We had an amazing wedding day at Mount Falcon! Alexa is an amazing wedding coordinator and is excellent at her job. She is extremely reliable and really went above and beyond for us. Her attention to detail is incredible. Alan and the food &beverage team are also excellent - the food was just beautiful and we got lots of compliments from our guests about the food and wine. The falconry was a huge hit with our guests and we would highly recommend. Mount Falcon itself has so much character and the grounds and setting are just stunning. We are so happy with how everything went and would highly recommend.

Mount Falcon made our 3 Day Wedding weekend perfect in every way possible! My Husband and I were extremely organised ahead of the big weekend but there were things that we hadn’t thought about and Alexa and Alan were at hand to help and support us every step of the way. The venue is beautiful and very well maintained which made for beautiful photographs. The food served at our Wedding breakfast and second day barbecue was incredible and our guests were delighted! The list could go on and on but ultimately Mount Falcon is a stunning, well maintained venue and with Alexa and Alan around to help with the planning we achieved the most amazing day imaginable. Thank you to the team at Mount Falcon for everything X

I would highly recommend having your wedding at Mount Falcon Estate. I can't thank the staff and all their suppliers enough especially Clodagh and Alexa. We organised our 180 guest wedding from Sydney Australia. We are both from Galway but could not find anything as special, romantic and accomodating as Mount Falcon Estate Co. Mayo. It was perfect. With all types of accomodation on the grounds, impressive banquet menu, and the Pool/Spa our guests agreed that Mount Falcon Estate has it all. The girls were so responsive with e mails and calls at all different hours in the day due to time difference they saw our vision and created it with ease. The photographer had a ball both outside ( lake, courtyard, driveway) and inside (wine cellar, reception room, bridal suite) all day. I encourage anyone even thinking of having a wedding in and around the West of Ireland to take a look at the beauty and wonder Mount Falcon Estate has to offer.

What can I say..this is truly one of the most romantic venues I have ever been in. From the minute we stepped inside we both knew we wanted to get married here. We got married here on the 7th December 2018 and it was everything we hoped for and more. From the Stunning grounds for photos to the ambience to the food, it was just perfect. We would highly recommend Mount Falcon to any future couples out there. The entire team were just fantastic. Our guests absolutely loved it and still talk about it to this day! Highly recommend viewing this stunning estate!

From the moment we walked in to Mount Falcon, we knew we wanted to hold our wedding reception there. Patrick is from Mayo originally but we both live and work in the UK. Planning a wedding from a different country can be daunting, but the Events team - Clodagh and Alexa - made the whole process so easy. They were always responsive and answered any questions quickly and efficiently. We stayed at Mount Falcon in the lead up to the big day and a couple of days afterward. Initially the bridal party stayed in a lodge, before moving into the hotel. The lodges are stunning and the hotel rooms are beautiful. The bridal suite was bigger than our flat in London! The hotel itself is out of this world, we got married at the end of November and it was decorated for Christmas. It was magical. The hotel is very grand, classy and elegant, but has a real homely feel to it. When you walk in you genuinely feel as though you are in a home from home. Every single member of staff could not do enough for us, nothing was too much trouble and they were all so friendly, personable and accommodating. All of our families felt so comfortable and relaxed. The food is delicious, the chef is clearly extremely talented and passionate about the menu. We ate at the hotel a lot over the week and we could not fault anything with any meals we had. The wedding breakfast was top quality and really the best of the best, one guest summarised with a ‘Wow’ and it really was. A special thank you to Alexa and Clodagh, they are both so calm, level headed and considerate. The day before the wedding, Alexa met with myself and the bridesmaids to run through everything, I was a little stressed and she was fabulous, she really calmed me down and I felt like our big day was in safe hands. On the day itself, I genuinely had nothing to worry about. Coming from an events background I did not want to feel as though I was at work, and I really didn’t! I enjoyed the day and knew that everything was covered. Our guests are still raving about our wedding, we have had lots of people write to us thanking us for such a fantastic day. Many family and friends have said that it is the best wedding that they have ever been too, which is due to the amazing team at Mount Falcon. We cannot thank you enough for creating our perfect wedding, and we are already planning our first trip back!

Mount Falcon is a really great venue- the grounds are beautiful and the food, hospitality and accommodation are really excellent. We were ably looked after by Clodagh and Martina, who ensured everything ran smoothly on the day and we were able to sit back and relax. Our guests loved it, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to friends.

We had an amazing wedding reception at Mount Falcon, everything was exactly how we wanted and any special requests we had were accommodated without any hassle. The entire team at Mount Falcon were always very helpful and professional and Alan was a pleasure to work with. We and our guests loved the Falconry display by Martin, it was a fantastic opportunity to appreciate the falcons, hawks and owls. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mount Falcon to any of our friends and family.

Mount Falcon is a truly beautiful venue and it was perfect for our New Years Eve wedding reception. From the moment we stepped inside the door to view it as a possible wedding venue, the Christmas before our wedding, we knew immediately it would be perfect for the wedding we wanted to create - from the beautifully decorated Christmas trees, garlands and floral arrangements in the lobby and reception rooms, to the warm open fires, to the stunning grounds overlooking the lake - which was used as the backdrop to our fireworks display at midnight! The service was second to none. Our wedding coordinator was extremely helpful from the moment we met him and we were extremely impressed with his professionalism and that of all the staff members we dealt with on the lead up to and the day of our wedding. The wedding meal was really delicious and we received so much positive feedback on the food, wine and service from a number of our guests. The menu selection and quality of the food is excellent. Vegetables are sourced from the Mount Falcon gardens and suppliers are generally local. The wine list is extensive also. Mount Falcon is a very special place and for us there was nowhere else we would have considered for our wedding.

We recently attended a wedding at Mount Falcon. What a fantastic venue! The staff were very friendly & attentive to the guests at all times. The food was amazing - one of the best meals we've had at a wedding. Our bedroom was fabulous with a huge bathroom. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try out the spa but we'll definitely be back for a weekend stay.
