A main reason a lot of people choose to get married with a Marry Me Ireland celebrant is because they want their wedding ceremony to be tailored to their exact needs and wants. They want to be able to get married to whoever they want, to have the ceremony to be however they want, and lastly to get married wherever they want.
If you get the ‘who’ part sorted, we will make sure the ceremony is sorted, and then all that’s left is the ‘where’. To help you out with that we have compiled a list of the five most romantic and luxurious castle hotels in Ireland. However, if none of these are to your tastes or budget, keep an eye on the blog in the future for more options.
1. Dromoland Castle
Dromoland Castle is located in the West of Ireland in Co.Clare. It is a renaissance castle hotel, that is the ancestral home of the O’Brien clan, direct descendants of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland. The castle hotel is built on 450 acres of parkland, gardens, golf courses, and courtyards.
2. Adare Manor
Adare Manor is located in Munster, in Co. Limerick. This castle hotel has Neo-Gothic architecture from the 19th Century.
