Orlagh House is a truly unique venue, a country house situated in the foothills of the Dublin mountains with spectacular views out over the city stretching out as far as the Irish sea. While being located just 25 minutes from the airport or city centre, you will get all of the feeling of a gorgeous country estate at this lavish house, which sleeps 30 people.

Built in 1790, Orlagh House remains rich with history and has kept its original beauty.

There aren't words to do this venue justice. Fantastic staff, kind and friendly, amazing views that change with the day light and season and the most interesting decor with pockets of intrigue. Roisin and her team will so delightful, every guest was blown away by the venue, a discovery for most and we were mainly a Dublin crowd. I can't do justice how at ease, stressfree and fun our day was for all. If you want something different, flexible and adaptable to a wedding that is 100% you and bonus like 2 mins off the m50, pick this.
We stayed with our wedding party the night before and I dont know when I will get my closet people together like that again so it's a memory we will have forever.

We went to view Orlagh House on a rainy day in March, with our two kids in tow, and fell in love with it - it was the only venue that we viewed. Dealing with Roisin and Emma in the lead up to the wedding was great, they were so helpful in making sure that everything would go well for us. On the day everything went perfectly, all the staff couldn't do enough for us and really made us feel so at home and welcome. The bridal party got ready at the venue and they gave us access from 7:30am, had tea and coffee ready for us and a bottle of champagne when we were ready! Everyone loved the venue, the freedom we had to bring a bouncy castle, crepe van, ice cream van was amazing. The food was absolutely gorgeous thanks to Aaron and the Caralanagh team, and even the breakfast the next day was fantastic!
I can't say enough good things about Orlagh House and all their wonderful staff, would just love to go back and do it all again

Orlagh house is a great spot to host a wedding. We were very lucky to stumble across the venue! The team of Roisin, Emma, Tatiana and Vytautas were so accommodating and helpful from start to finish. They are a professional and experienced team and they ensured the day ran smoothly. We really did not have to worry about a thing!

The venue itself is so unique and the chance to organise and arrange your day the exact way you want is special.

We could not recommend Orlagh House more.

Perfect place with nice view on Dublin, amazing services and flexibility and many nice attentions on the D day that we didn't expect. High professionals, so no stress! A unique place, not like a standard wedding place. Our guests enjoyed it a lot!

My partner and I held our wedding in Orlagh house recently. Everything from start to to finish was magical. From the amazing venue with all it's beautiful quirky finishes, the sumptuous feast that Aaron the inhouse chef created for us and our guests to the spectacular view of Dublin by day or night. We were not disappointed. The whole house is so beautiful, each room is unique. The cloisters is a beautiful hall which worked fantastically for our ceremony on the day. We are so happy we chose here for our special day
Roisin and the other staff were so thoughtful and couldn't do enough for us. We truly felt at home for the 2 days. We can't recommend it highly enough and will be back any opportunity we get.
