The Village at Lyons far surpassed any expectations I had. Situated in Kildare it is a truely unique wedding venue. Everything from the waterfalls to the hand painted walls oozed beauty and a rustic vintage charm. In my opinion this would be the venue of any couples dreams!

Our next stop was Markree Castle in Sligo, driving up the long driveway through their 500 acres of land was very exciting! we really got the sense of grandeur pulling up to the driveway of this 14th Century Castle. If you are looking for an authentic castle as a wedding venue then this place fits the bill. Markree offer you the castle exclusively for your big day, IMAGINE a whole castle to yourself and wedding party! that means the bar closes when you tell it to!
The grounds are breathtaking as you can imagine for such an estate, we took a wander around the pond and down to the lake and trees imagining all the future wedding photos.
One thing that really stood out to me was the reception room. Breathtaking. This room is done in muted turquoise, white with gold gilded accents. The words baroque, Marie Antoinette and opulence spring to mind!

Horetown House is a charming country house situated in the Wexford countryside. Described as ‘your home away from home’ it was originally built in 1692 and has been since been restored with care by it’s present owners. With it’s large reception hall, welcoming fireplace and 10 exquisite bedrooms this timeless home would be exclusively yours for your special day.
Downstairs is a beautiful cellar restaurant that can hold up to 100 wedding guests. Coming down the stairs to the cellar is a complete surprise! with it’s exposed stone walls and muted colour scheme you could be in a quaint restaurant in Italy.
For larger weddings there is a recently built Marquee on the grounds which can cater up to 200 wedding guests. I saw this as a blank canvas! I love that you could decorate and style it to whatever theme / colour scheme you had in mind:)
