Little did we know, there's an awesome Irish gem right at the heart of the Co. Kerry that will certainly steal the heart of everyone who will see it. It's a beautifully weathered castle ruin of a century-old palace. It still remains as an impressive 4-storey structure that's surrounded by vast greenery covering the walls. A castle ruin in county Kerry is indeed one of your best options for couples wishing for a memorable destination that’s worth every penny for an overseas travel.

This castle sits on a hill surrounded by acres of green fields and the North Atlantic Ocean is just a stones throw away. Its proximity to the ocean means ample photographic opportunities, including the Kerry Cliffs of Portmagee. The blue ocean is not the only scenic view you’ll witness here. This unique castle ruin in county Kerry has a surreal facade of crawling greeneries covering almost the whole structure.

Although not as popular as the Cliffs of Moher, the Kerry Cliffs are equally astounding, and most importantly, less crowded! That makes the Ballycarbery Castle a desirable outdoor elopement venue for a Spiritual, Humanist, or Secular ceremony. A supplement fee is required for access to the castle via the land-owner’s private road. There is no other way to access the castle directly.

Looking at the images of this castle ruin in county Kerry, you can already imagine how your wedding photos will look like. An old structure covered in fresh greenery against a clear blue sky. Whether you hide inside the arches of this site or you pose in front of its outer walls, you will have breathtaking images that will wreak havoc in your social media account.

Elope here with only you, your spouse, and an officiant in a symbolic ceremony or bring some of your friends and family members along. Whatever your choice is, you and your loved one will have the happiest day of your lives exchanging vows in a surreal location such as this castle ruin in county Kerry.
