 Last 2024 Weekend Dates available: 11th October

Ever dreamt of a magical woodland setting for your wedding day – Surrounded by nature and the ones you love?

Picture yourself here at the Boutique Glamping at Rock Farm Slane, a magical wooded grove, nestled above the banks of the River Boyne where ancient Ireland draws you in and reminds you of all that is to be celebrated in this land. Be at one with nature celebrating love with the ground beneath your feet and the touch of pure fresh air ….as you promise yourself to the one you love….

The Venue

Our unique offering combines high-end event management with beautiful natural scenery on the Slane Castle Estate. You can have your wedding reception in our beautifully renovated rustic haybarn.   We can accommodate small groups up to large scale 200+ guests on the day with full crisp linens and stocked bar to keep your guests fed and happy throughout the day. 

The Ceremony

You may choose to have your wedding ceremony in one of the local Churches in nearby Slane Village or perhaps you are looking to host a humanist or shamanic celebration in the beautiful Glamping grove under the bows of giant sycamore and large stretch tent (included in the venue hire).

Either way we can provide you with an experienced venue-based coordinator to guide you through the process, celebrants and other specialist services such as wedding coordinator, catering, flowers, hair and beauty.

Catering Services

Rock Farm Slane boasts an organic farm and kitchen team to create an organic feast of home grown beef, pork, turkey and vegetables. We specialise in pig on the spit and BBQ style meats and are able to cater for all types of menus including all vegan menus.

Guest & Bridal Accommodation

Boutique Glamping – As a gold-certified Ecotourism Ireland destination, Rock Farm Slane specialises in mixed guest and bridal accommodation, including a strawbale cabin Swallow's Nest which is provided to the couple free of charge for the wedding night. The star attraction is the boutique Glamping, which has 5 yurts, 2 shepherd huts and 5 bell tents from June to September. We can also provide more bell tents for overnight stays and can sleep up to 100 guests sharing. Once all our accommodation is booked out we will also allow campervans and caravans for overnight stays. 

The Lime House  – Situated beside the Hay Barn, the Lime House will suit those members of the bridal party who want to be beside the action and is the ideal spot for getting ready for the Big Day. We encourage couples to come and stay the night before and the night after the wedding so that they can get ready in the Hay Barn and enjoy a good catch up with friends the day after. The Lime House is ideal for hosting this kinds of groups as it can host up to 90 people in the ground floor sitting and dining rooms. Five of the six rooms are en-suite with access to shared living room, lounge and kitchen areas. This property is available for private hire and would also serve perfectly as the space for small weddings.

The River House - Perfect for the groom's family or an extended family group who all want to be together. The River House is situated at the bottom of the farm at Slane Bridge and is within walking distance of both the main farm area and the village. 


I just wanted to drop you a note to express our gratitude for everything over the last few months and on our wedding day. We were finding wedding planning pretty stressful even before it became a "covid wedding", and I honestly don't think we could have done it without the kindness, pragmatism and helpfulness of you and your team. We are so grateful for your flexibility and openness as our 85 person wedding became a 15 person wedding. You were always so aligned with and accommodating of the kind of day we were planning and feeling we were trying to achieve, and so incredibly understanding of all our needs, particularly regarding our more health-conscious guests. You made getting to the day so clear and simple, and you made the day itself run so smoothly and beautifully. 

I also wanted to particularly mention how wonderful the food was, both the evening before and the day of the wedding. Our families are still telling us how delicious it all was at every opportunity! If I'm honest, I hadn't anticipated how important the food would become given how small the event was - with the rest of the day necessarily toned down for the much smaller group, and given the restrictions of social distancing, having such gorgeous meals really made it all very special for us.

We went into this wanting a laid-back celebration that we could relax during and really enjoy, and that's exactly what we got, thanks in no small part to all your hard work. Particular highlights for us were having a quiet moment looking up at the stars in the outdoor hot tub the evening before the big day, the spectacular views and beautiful trees from the glamping area to look out on the morning of (not to mention during the photos later on), and being able to chat to our families in such a warm and homey space late into the evening as the celebrations wound down. So thank you again for absolutely everything - here's to doing it all again next year!  Bryony and Killian (August 2020)

” Dear Rock Farm Team, We wanted to say thank you again for being a superb venue for our wedding in August. Our guests were blown away with the unique and beautiful setting and the day ran so smoothly we could really relax and enjoy it. It was a pleasure to deal with you in the run up to the big day. Your help with the organisation and answering of our many questions was very much appreciated. We hope to visit again some time.” Katie and Tim (August 2015)

“Hi everyone, we’re now back in England after a lovely honeymoon in Kerry. Just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for making our wedding so special. You’ve all been so helpful since the day we made our first enquiry and the day itself exceeded all expectations. Rock Farm looked amazing with the tents and the marquee up and our guests were really blown away by it all.” Isabelle and Michael August (2014)

Rock Farm Slane was a dream venue! From start to finish. We had the best experience. If you want your wedding to be unique; this is the place. We had a bbq the day before the wedding to get everyone there and settled in for the big day. It was beautiful, we brought our own food and had full use of the whole place, BBQ?s - Hot Tubs - little piglets - Yurts, it was magical. It was a particularly rainy August but we had two days of lovely weather. Claudia was really lovely to deal with and even when things felt a little bit stressful (as they can before any wedding) she was a calm port in a storm. During the event everyone was amazing and welcoming and just wanted us to have the best time.
We went for the pig on the spit option and it was beautiful, a lot of people had two plates and that was amazing there was enough food and then some. We had bacon buttys and wedges for late night and everything went off without a hitch. I?d recommend this venue a million times over! The views and vibes are on point. We?ll be having our wedding renewals there for sure Hah!

It?s great we can go back and visit anytime and stay at the swallows nest as it was beautiful as well. The accom was perfect and very unique.

Happy planning

We had a magical wedding weekend in Rockfarm. We were able to have the wedding we wanted that suited our love of the outdoors and organic food. Claudia and the team were so helpful with any little details that popped up along the way. Our guests were blown away by how delicious the food was. A highlight for us was getting up on day two and going for a dip in the river with our pals followed by some chilling out in the hot tubs!
We had brought our own food to do bbq on day 2 and the staff in rockfarm were so helpful in getting the bbqs and pizza oven set up for us and getting us ectra cutlery etc.
if you are looking for an alternative, personal and unique wedding, Rockfarm is the place to have it!

The venue is absolutely unique and it was the first we saw and knew immediately that we want to get married there. We had some difficulties planning our wedding weekend but we must say Rock Farm was really flexible and helpful to find solutions. Claudia especially was super accommodating and relaxed. What we really appreciated!
We definitely had our dream wedding. Staff on the day were just amazing!
Highly recommend the venue if you want something different.

Depsite the rain (the worst day of weather in the whole year!) we had the best day we could have asked for. Sarah, Rachel and Luco could not have done more for us , even with changes having to be made on the day of the wedding due to the horrendous weather. I think a lot of people might be put off by choosing an outdoor wedding with the risk of weather but all our our guests said it made the day all the more romantic and memorbable-just tell them to come prepared! Rock Farm is a very special place and it captured exactly what we wanted to remember of our wedding !

We Made our first trip to the magical Rock Farm Slane back in February to check out the venue. Even tho it was winter time, we absolutely fell in love with the place. It was love at first sight. It?s unique and peaceful settings was exactly what we were looking for for our special day. It ticked all the boxes for us. Carina, Claudia and Aimee were so fantastic to work with leading up to the big day. They were ever so helpful. We had chosen to have a humanist ceremony in the glamping area, and have our party in the hay barn. We had about 100 guests and that was just perfect. Our guests were all blown away by the serenity of Rock Farm and it?s helpful staff, from the delicious organic food to the glamping facilities and the accommodation overall. There was something for everyone. Yurts, bell tents, Shepard?s huts and the Limehouse and Riverhouse with en-suite bathrooms in most rooms. The communal facilities in the glamping area were really clean and the communal kitchen was very well equipped. In a nutshell, if you are looking for a wedding with a difference, Rock Farm is the place to be. We experienced 3 days of our very own wedding festival with friends and family coming from afar to celebrate with us. The days after the wedding we just all relaxed on the grounds surrounded by nature. It was by far the best experience of our lives. We have already decided we will be going back for our anniversary to relive the experience, and our guest are all up for it again! We would like to say a special thanks to Carina, Rachel, Aimee, Lucio and their wonderful team of super nice and helpful staff who went our of their way to greatly care for us and all our guests throughout the whole experience, THANK YOU

Carina and Claudia were brilliant to deal with from the very beginning. We had to postpone our original booking in 2019 due to family reasonas, and they couldnt have been more understanding. When covid hit and more postponements, they so flexible and worked with us to ensure we could still get our day. All staff we dealt with were engaging, cheerful and willing to help when needed. We had an amazing day/night even if the weather wasn't on our side, we had the flexibility with this venue to make our day uniquely ours, while also catering to our guests. On day 2 we could get our own caters in and had use of the barn to host drinks for those on site. Again this added to the weekend overall. Highly recommend this venue.

Rockfarm is an amazing venue for a wedding that a little different. All our guests commented on how personal the whole wedding weekend was which in large part was down to our venue, Rockfarm.

The primary selling point for Rockfarm, other than it?s lovely, helpful staff, is it?s beautiful natural setting. The staff are happy for you to do with it what you want decoration-wise, however the nature surrounding the venue does not need much added to make it beautiful.

It has a few different locations within it meaning that over the course of the 2 full days and 3 nights that we spent there, people didn?t get sick of the same space as there was always some variety. This was an important selling point for us. Rockfarm can have a festival feel to it while still having the gravity of a wedding venue. Everyone working there are relaxed, while still professional, which leads to your guests enjoying it as much as possible. Our guests also loved the accommodation available on site ? tents, yurts, cabins and the rental houses.

We chose to get married outside and there were a few beautiful options of where the ceremony can be. The barn was a great place for the meal and dancing with lots of space. Having the bar included in the main room meant that the crowd wasn?t split up and the dancing continued all through the night. After the barn, you have use of the campsite area which has a kitchen room that held all the guests that were wanting to continue the party through the night.

It is difficult to have a wholly sustainable wedding, however choosing Rockfarm as venue goes a long way towards this. All the food provided is supplied by their farm or local producers. Rockfarm has been certified as ?Gold? by EcoTourism Ireland and is acknowledged by the Leave No Trace Ireland programme. Showers and bath water are supplied by rainwater and toilets are composting. Initially we were wondering how our guests would take this but everyone loved it!

With regards to food, Rockfarm now do their own catering. While they were unable to provide a 'tasting' as such, we attended a Spring festival there and were able to taste what was on offer. The food was very wholesome, delicious and mostly sourced from the farm. Lots of people at the wedding commented on how good the food was.

The staff at Rockfarm were extremely attentive in the day before the wedding. They helped to set up and responded to all our various requests. We are truly thankful to the staff over the course of the weekend who worked so hard to help us achieve the wedding that we wanted. In the lead up to the wedding, they met with us for a long meeting to run through the finer details and answered all our queries. Do remember that it is a working farm so there may be a day or two for them to respond to emails which is completely understandable. To Rockfarm?s full and wholehearted credit, they always addressed queries we raised and dealt with them appropriately and generously.

We rate this venue 10/10 and highly recommend it. We had the best weekend of our lives! Thanks to Carina, Catherine, Lucio and everyone who worked tirelessly for us all weekend xx

We had our wedding June 2019 at Rock Farm Slane and it was a dream come true in every way. We first stayed at the farm on a short trip in 2018 and fell in love with the magical scenery and tranquility. Leading up to the wedding working with Carina and Catherine was excellent. We planned the event all the way from Washington DC and yet with Carina's help and great communication everything was well organized. They provided templates to organize accommodation and hour-by-hour weekend plans. The weekend of the event, the staff really went above and beyond to execute our vision. We had over 50 people staying at the farm for 2 nights and it was a lot to organize, but from the rehearsal pizza night dinner, to the ceremony, reception, and morning-after brunch, everything went flawlessly. The food was amazing: many people commented that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. For us, the best part was that we had a venue were we could gather family and friends from all over the world for an entire weekend and really have the opportunity to talk with each and every one of them around a campfire, pizza oven, or on the dance floor. Seeing our friends together in the festival type atmosphere Rock Farm provides was priceless and really sets this place apart from other wedding venues. The hospitality and atmosphere of this place is unbeatable. We highly recommend hosting your next event with them or even coming to stay for a short time. We hope to come back to celebrate our anniversary next year! Thank you so much Carina and all the staff of Rock Farm you really made our dreams come true! -Lara & Andrew
