Hidden away between the farms, fields and hills of the Dingle Peninsula, this charming ruin of Rahinnane Castle is a wonderful place to say "I do" in total privacy. Access to the castle for ceremonies is granted by the land-owner for a small fee of €100. Due to its hilltop position, these ruins for outdoor wedding celebrations offer splendid views of the surrounding area and the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.
Rahinnane Castle is a great alternative to Minard Castle (Kilmurry Beach) for those couples who are looking to be in the heart of the ruin when saying their vows, since access to Minard Castle is strictly forbidden by the land-owner. If you’re one of those couples who are fascinated by Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings, these ruins for outdoor wedding ambience is one of your best options for a venue here in Ireland. Rahinnane Castle will not only give your ceremony and wedding photos the ambience of the abovementioned series and films. This place also overlooks the simple village in this part of Dingle. There are sheep and lambs freely roaming around the vast green field too.
This ideal elopement spot will give your photographic opportunities in a one-of-a-kind setting.

Although surrounded by privately-owned farmlands, residents here are more than friendly to let you enjoy your big day.
