Welcome to my very first Venue of the Month post.
I am so excited to share my very own wedding venue for this month, which is of course Kilkea Castle.
Kilkea castle is set on 180 acres of land and dates back to 1180, it really does feel like stepping back in time when walking through the beautiful castle grounds and rooms.
We arrived at Kilkea for our venue viewing early and got lunch in the golf club overlooking the castle, the food and service were spectacular and after been given a tour of the castle itself we both just knew this was where we wanted to get married. It was sophisticated and stylish while still feeling cosy, welcoming and romantic.
From the beautiful tree lined drive up to the castle, right to the well-kept gardens it was everything we had
dreamed of, plus if that wasn’t enough, when we got back into our car to leave a little robin landed on the bonnet to say hi before flying off again. This felt like a sign!
Kilkea Castle has been hosting weddings for over 800 years and after a recent renovation it has reopened its castle doors and is ready to celebrate more happy marriages on their beautiful grounds. The atmosphere is so romantic and sophisticated if you do choose this venue for your big day you will feel like you are living out a true fairy-tale fantasy.
They cater to both small and large wedding parties, with the Restaurant 1180 holding up to 60 people, or the baronial Hall holding up to 270. They also offer on site civil ceremonies, from the rose garden outside, to the baronial hall reception which sits under the castles eye. They have a perfect backdrop for your wedding day.
The wedding packages start at €105 and they have many different packages to suit each couple, The
brochure is available to download from their website. https://www.kilkeacastle.ie/weddings/
