Weddings with a unique flavour
Have you ever wished you could bring the beauty of a wedding ceremony with you to the reception, minus all the formality? No matter how adorned a hotel wedding might be, sometimes you just want a canvas that doesn’t double as a conference room — a great, big box. At Sol y Sombra, you can finally step outside of the box.
Using our restored 200-year-old church as your palette, you get the best of both worlds — on the one hand: a traditional ceremony setting, a lit through stained glass and steeped in history, and on the other: a chic, vibrant Spanish tapas bar and restaurant.
Sol y Sombra has been host to a wide range of wedding celebrations — from traditional Irish banquet style to multi-course, family-style tapas tasting dinners, from late-night dance and wedding bands to fire breathers and silent discos. Our vaulted ceilings are the limits.
For couples who prefer a more 'informal' wedding party, we offer gourmet tapas finger food menus which can be just as filling as a traditional meal. .
Constructed in 1816 as St. James Church, the site of Sol y Sombra held wedding ceremonies long before it ever hosted guests for dinner and drinks, music and dancing. Today, illuminated through the original stained glass windows, couples from around Ireland and the world continue to make Sol y Sombra the sanctuary where they say “I do.”
If these walls could talk, they would tell stories of personalised vows and heartfelt reflections, of hand, sand, rose and ribbon ceremonies, of tying the knot — sometimes literally.
A fully registered venue for civil marriages, civil partnerships, humanist and spiritual ceremonies, Sol y Sombra provides the perfect location to wed the one you love. Our experienced wedding coordinators can assist you in the careful planning of all aspects of your ceremony, as well as the celebration that follows.
