This unique elopement venue in Ireland is a historical monument that was built to commemorate a remote community in the region. The Blasket Island was this community's residence for a long time until forced to evacuate in 1953. If you’re dreaming of an extraordinary elopement ceremony and since you’re traveling overseas for your elopement, you might as well make the most out of it by choosing this unique museum wedding venue near Dingle as the spot in Ireland to say "I do".
The Blasket Island Centre is licensed to hold civil marriages. It's a unique indoor ceremony location for couples wishing to get married in Ireland during the colder months. The usage fee of €310 also guarantees you privacy in the designated room of the museum (the glass conservatory style room overlooking the ocean) for the duration on the ceremony.
The perfect spot to hold a ceremony in this museum wedding venue near Dingle is inside its purely glass and grill extension that overlooks the scenic view of the peninsula. It evokes the simple traditional life of Irish people in this part of the country where their means of living are mainly agriculture - farming and fishing. You can see that as you look at the vast green lands and the beautiful bodies of water right before you when you get married in Blasket Island Heritage Centre. The glass structure is uniquely shaped upwards to form a tall and narrow edge that will frame your ceremony photos perfectly.
Capacity of the venue is maximum 26 people seated. The Blasket Island Centre is barely a 10 minutes away from Ireland’s most south-westerly point that's closest to America. This spot is called the Slea Head that offers breathtaking views of the rugged coastline and the ocean - a perfect backdrop for your after-ceremony photos.
After the ceremony, you can also walk along the tranquil and nature-packed grounds of the venue. Lush green trees and the equally astonishing green field will be your backdrop, while a vibrant mix of dry and healthy grass on the side of the road will frame your photos.
