This incredibly dramatic outdoor wedding location in Ireland marks the country's most westerly point. Quite literally, you cannot get closer to America from mainland Ireland than at Slea Head! It's located at the tip of the Dingle Peninsula, which visitors frequent to see a cluster of ancient sites, cozy villages, and breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Having your wedding ceremony at Slea Heads pretty much guarantees incredible images for your wedding photo album!

This is definitely the location to pick if you want to tell the world that you’re having a destination wedding in Ireland. There’s not many ways to describe this dramatic outdoor wedding location in Ireland than by using words like scenic, panoramic, picturesque, nature-packed, grand, and genuinely Irish!

When you look at the photos of this location, it wouldn’t be too hard to imagine why most couples fall in love with the place instantly. Every edge of Slea Head is a cliff waiting to be a perfect backdrop for your wedding photos. Gorgeous is an understatement for its landscape, making it the “it” spot for your destination elopement.

Green and blue shades of nature will astound you - rushing waves of the Atlantic Ocean and the evergreen Dingle Peninsula landscapes. Every spot is breathtaking and you can literally take a picture everywhere. This location is perfect for an elopement for two or a microwedding with only a few friends and family members who are willing to stand up the whole ceremony. We think they wouldn’t mind at all since the gorgeous views will overcome all objections they might have.

You can have a symbolic elopement here or a legal wedding ceremony where an authorized minister will be the officiant. Here in this dramatic outdoor wedding location in Ireland within surreal grounds, you’ll have a destination wedding in its truest sense - a heartfelt, genuine ceremony in a unique spot. This extraordinary location does not need any decoration so you just have to bring yourself and your partner, along with a few guests if you want. No need for chairs or aisle flowers, nor a dress code.

However, due to the risky Irish weather, it's highly advisable to book an indoor ceremony venue for your plan B if you will choose this dramatic outdoor wedding location in Ireland. We recommend looking at The Blasket Island Centre for your backup option should the weather refuse to cooperate. That’s usually part of our packages for small weddings in Ireland. Along with makeup artists, photographers, videographers, and florists, Peach Perfect Weddings tie up with venue suppliers to make your ceremony and reception as seamless as possible.
