Ceremony Locations and Venues for Your Wedding in Ireland
Forget about frantically searching for a venue for your intimate wedding in Ireland from across the pond – because we have already done the hard work for you! Over the years we have been compiling a long list of the best wedding venues in Ireland, filtering out anything that’s less than perfect and constantly in the know with what exciting new venues have recently opened their doors.
From majestic outdoor locations like the ruins of medieval castles, churches and abbeys to the halls of gorgeous country houses and romantic function rooms of luxurious manor houses. Whatever location you are after for your small destination wedding in Ireland, we’ve found it.
Have a look at a selection of our wedding venues online or get in touch and let us find something special for you:
If you prefer to organize your elopement yourself, of course you are free to do so. We are not making our money from referrals or commission from the suppliers that you will encounter on our website. What you pay working with us is the good service that a network of experienced wedding professionals with whom we have long time relationships guarantees and, of course, the preferred rates that they offer us.
Included in our package is a Live Music performance for your wedding ceremony and reception.
We have in our team, talented traditional Irish musicians who play the harp, flute, and concertinas. They are the ones who will perform on your wedding day and you have the option for the instrument the musicians will use.
Because they are traditional Irish musicians, they play traditional music too. But we have a list of popular wedding ceremony songs and music that you can ask them to play for you. You can also make your own suggestions to them and see how they can play it for you.
Yes! If you include On-the-Day Coordination for your wedding, an experienced team member will be there in person from start to finish to make sure that everything runs smoothly. Your dedicated wedding planner will coordinate your wedding day and take care of any issue that might arise, so that you can completely relax and focus on the two of you.
Unfortunately, there are absolutely no guarantees when it comes to Irish weather! In recent years, some of our couples who eloped in April or October had better weather or their wedding day than those who tied the knot in July or August. In general, second half of the year in Ireland is wetter and windier than the first half, with the wettest months typically being August and December. For outdoor locations it’s best to avoid the colder months from November though to February (unless you are happy wear a nice warm cover-up over your wedding dress!). The peak summer months for tourist activity and highest temperatures are considered to be June, July and August, but September can also be quite balmy. So in choosing a date for your ceremony, don’t try to predict the weather! Go with what feels more natural. If you want to be married on the anniversary of your first kiss but it’s in January, then go for it! Rain or not, the day will be extra special.
If you’ve chosen to get married in an outdoor location, remember there is always the risk that you will get wet. An indoor ceremony backup plan usually comes at an additional cost, regardless of whether you actually end up using it or not. We advice our clients that unless the weather is particularly bad, it’s usually enough to just postpone the ceremony by about half an hour to allow the rain to pass. But in the case of expected prolonged rain, our advice is to make sure you book your wedding night accommodation at a nice hotel that has a suitable room (usually a communal area of the hotel or a dedicated function room) where you can hold the ceremony as a last resort.
Help with legal paperwork is a key element of our Elopement Package and we will personally guide you through each step of the process. But in essence, having a legally-binding wedding ceremony in Ireland requires four things:
1) Sending in your application a minimum 3 months in advance of the wedding day,
2) Meeting with the Registrar in person at least 5 calendar days before the wedding,
3) Having two Witnesses present at your ceremony,
4) Making sure your chosen ceremony location is suitable for a legally-binding marriage ceremony.
Absolutely! After the ceremony is over and you’ve sent off the signed Marriage Registration Form back to the Registrar, within a few weeks they will post you your marriage certificate. To register the marriage in your home country just take your marriage certificate to the local courthouse or other government body which is responsible for the civil register in your country.
Yes, you do if you want to be legally married in Ireland. The meeting must take place minimum 5 calendar days before the ceremony and an appointment can only be given on weekdays (Monday to Friday). If your wedding is on Friday, the meeting must take place latest on Fri-day the week before.

Weather in Ireland
“I’m looking forward to summer… the rain gets warmer”. This is what they say in Ireland, so you can clearly see the risks there! Irish weather is so unpredictable that recently some of our couples who got married there in April or October had a good weather, while for others who chose July or August their wedding day was not only cloudy, but rainy too!
What we suggest for your outdoor wedding in Ireland however, is to avoid the months from November to February, as they tend to be wetter and windier. The peak period for weddings in Ireland is from June to the beginning of September, as these are the warmer months of the year. But let’s not underestimate May, which statistically has the longest sunshine hours and the lowest rain amount throughout the whole year.
But in general, whichever month you opt for your wedding, just don’t try to predict the weather and go for the date which speaks the most to you! In the end, you would either have an indoors backup plan (which almost always comes at an additional cost, however) or probably it would be enough to just postpone the ceremony by half an hour until the rain stops.
As a last resort, booking for your first night as husband and wife in a romantic hotel which has an internal room available for ceremonies, can turn to be the perfect plan B!
A few testimonials from couples whom we helped to get married in Ireland.
My husband and I decided on having a small intimate wedding ceremony in Ireland and came across Peach Perfect Weddings on the internet. We were going to be traveling from the United States and were not familiar with any venues or vendors in Ireland, as we had never been before. I first contacted them through their website and quickly heard back from Lisa who was able to give us brochures and answer all of our questions regarding the wedding planning process. Once we decided to go through with everything for sure, Lisa helped with every single detail from the very beginning. She was truly so helpful, quick to respond, and quite simply amazing! We initially had a phone conversation and then because it was easier for us, we coordinated strictly through e-mail. She organized everything from the ceremony site, florist, photographer, etc., (all of which were equally amazing!) A couple of weeks before the wedding she sent out a time line of events and on the day of the ceremony everyone/ everything happened almost exactly according to the plan! We had one hiccup, as we had to change the ceremony location about an hour prior to the scheduled start of the ceremony! (Due to unknown construction) Lisa and the team worked extremely quickly and efficiently to ensure things would be just as perfect and beautiful with very little time to spare. In the end, we could not have asked for a better location and team! We were so lucky to have amazing weather and ended up at the most beautiful location after all! THANK YOU to Lisa, Peach Perfect Weddings, and all of the vendors who helped make our big day SO special!!!
Me and my husband, Len, decided to have a small wedding in Ireland. The people with peach perfect wedding made it possible. Lisa Davies, our coordinator was awesome! She found all the most amazing vendors from florist to cake to transportation to music. She made it happen for us. Even though we mainly corresponded through email and a few times over the phone she was amazing. We met on the day of and she made sure everything was running so smoothly. I was so relaxed about the ceremony because I knew everything was just going to be great and it was! Thank you peach perfect and a real big thanks to Lisa for making our dream wedding happen!!!
