We went to a friends wedding here earlier this summer. The location, gardens, house, marquee, and beach are heavenly. The wedding reception was held in a marquee inside a beautiful walled garden. Champagne was served on the patio in front of the marquee before the meal and as night fell two amazing cherry blossom light trees came to life drawing people outside. Think Meet Joe Black (Brad Pitt Film) and the garden party night scene.

Superb Wedding Venue

Wedding was truly perfect !!

Firstly, from the moment we viewed Drumhalla Estate we knew we had found our dream wedding venue. Words could not describe how I felt pulling up to the main house in person and walking around the grounds and walled garden for the first time, it was beyond my imagination.

Damien, Aidan & Siobhan accommodated our requests with no hesitation. In the run up to our wedding I was averaging about 1-2 emails per day for almost 2 weeks straight!! They were so understanding, patient and answered all my last minute questions in detail which i am so thankful for as it put my mind at ease.

It came to the day and I was so nervous (plus very excited).We managed to get a beautiful day so we were able to have the ceremony in the walled garden. The sun was shining, the sea was sparkling and the skies were blue. The intimate setting and beautiful grounds was perfect for our wedding photographs. We even got some taken on the beach with our wedding party!!

All our guests are still raving about the best wedding ever. We had the best day of our lives and Drumhalla provided us 5* service. I would highly recommend anyone to get married at this magical venue. Special thanks to Damien and Aidan for taking such good care of us, they were brilliant!! We cant wait to go back!!

Dream Wedding

Me and my husband had our wedding in Drumhalla House on 1st July 2016.
I don’t think I will be able to put into words just how amazing and beautiful Drumhalla House is and its surroundings.
Our guest and our bridal party enjoyed the marque which comfortably held our 170 people, and the views in every direction were breathtaking.
We were thoroughly impressed with Aidan (the owner) he was so warm to chat to and explained all our options. A pleasure to deal with!
Our family and bridal party took up the rooms in the house, which were all massive and furnished with the most amazing furniture.
Lots of other B&B’S and houses to rent close by for other guests too.
We stayed from the Friday to the Monday, but would love to have stayed longer, it’s like a dream, a bubble that you won’t want to leave.

Amazingly Special Place
