Traveling through the green, wet lands of Ireland, you might just want to grab a drink and rest in a family owned Irish pub that has been serving locals and tourists since the 1980’s. More than just a bar for resting and drinking, Vaughan’s Traditional Irish Pub is an ideal reception venue for couples hosting a small destination wedding in Ireland. Why not, when it's a stone's thrown away from scenic locations like the Cliffs of Moher, Hag’s Head, and many historic ruins of Country Clare? The Vaughan’s Pub is a twin Bar and Barn reception venue that’s “rich in character” and “full of warmth” as some reviewers would describe it. Here, you’ll get to listen to traditional Irish music and enjoy set dancing while savouring delicious dishes and witnessing the view of the Kilfernora village.

Set in a historic village in Country Clare, Vaughan’s Pub is a favorite place for resting, drinking, and dancing by both locals and tourists. It’s surrounded by the Burren’s breathtaking landscape of lush green hills, extensive European cave systems, iron age forts, and old castles. We have personally arranged Irish elopements in Co. Clare’s historic churches, castle ruins, and breathtaking cliffs, and almost every time, our couples would pick The Vaughan’s Pub for the reception.

We never wondered why because this traditional Irish pub is a perfect setting for intimate and joyous occasions. The Barn reception room has it's own dedicated bar and is ideal for up groups up to 120. If you’re bringing with you around 20 to 30 guests, then this venue will even be more amazing for your small group as the Barn is designed to be easily sectioned off into a smaller, more intimate area. You can also have an outdoor feel for the reception by holding it at the outskirts of The Barn with a view of the Kilfernora’s fresh landscape.

For these reasons, the Vaughan’s Pub has been an attractive reception venue since the 80’s. And to make it more convenient for tourists and locals getting married around here, the owners of the pub offer accommodation for up to 46 people at the Kilfenora Hostel. Having said that, you don’t need to arrange your elopement in Ireland all on your own. Although this perfect reception venue made it so convenient to set everything up, our planners at Peach Perfect Weddings can take care of both your elopement ceremony and the party that comes after. Check out our wedding packages for Ireland and see how easy it can be for you if you team up with us!
