5 Reasons to have your Wedding in The Station House Hotel

Once a passenger train station, The Station House Hotel in Co. Meath is one of the most unique and special wedding venues I’ve had the pleasure of photographing. From its wonderful history to its gorgeous ceremony options, award-winning dining, and so much more, The Station House Hotel has it all. Located just 35 minutes from Dublin and set in the heart of the Boyne Valley, this wonderful hotel has a history, unlike any other wedding venue. A busy railway junction from 1862 to 1963, The Station House Hotel serviced passenger trains that ran between Dublin and the surrounding towns of Navan, Trim and Athboy.

Every Wedding Photographer Just Loves Station House Hotel

Although the last passenger train ran in 1947, the station was still functional and used to transport livestock and cargo into the mid-1960s. In 1981, the Station House was purchased by the Slattery family, and since then, they have built it to become the incredible, unique and loved wedding venue and hotel it is today.

Who owns the station house hotel? The family chose to preserve a lot of the original features and remains of the old station, which offers a step back in time throughout the hotel. The perfect countryside escape, this hotel wins the heart of everyone who visits, especially those who have chosen it as their perfect wedding venue.

If you’re recently engaged and planning your wedding, here are 5 reasons to have your wedding in The Station House Hotel Ireland, Co. Meath.

The Venue Choices

Recently refurbished, The Station House Hotel provides guests with so much choice when it comes to choosing their perfect wedding backdrop. Whether you desire to get married and celebrate inside or outside, the choice is endless and truly one of a kind.

A recent wedding I have done at this hotel was at sunset within the gorgeous, enchanting grounds. The atmosphere was complemented stunningly by the dreamiest sunset, which rounded off the entire ceremony perfectly but also allowed for truly magical wedding photographs.

One of the most popular outdoor venues at The Station House Hotel, this unique, authentic stone Turntable is set amongst breath-taking forested gardens, and it really is a special spot to tie the knot. This unique venue is one of the most magical I’ve seen and it is perfect for your ceremony or even some pre-wedding drinks.

If you prefer to have your wedding indoors, you also have lots of options at this venue.

The 180 capacity Carriage Suite, which was originally the stations engine room is now a stunning function room that’s perfect for larger weddings. While some large function rooms can lack charm and character, this is not the case for the Carriage Suite.

Rich in history and so tastefully designed, it’s a wonderful function room that stands out from the rest. If you’re planning a smaller, more intimate experience, the award-winning Signal Restaurant ticks many boxes and is available to rent for weddings.

No matter which of the unique venues you choose, I can say one thing is for sure, you’ll be blown away by the incredible food.

The Accommodations

We all love checking into hotels when attending a wedding right!? That first time you enter your room or suite is always exciting and the accommodation options at The Station House Hotel do not disappoint in this respect. They are truly unique. Possibly one of the coolest accommodation options in any hotel I’ve seen is the original two storey railway signal tower which has been converted into the Signal Suite. Originally used to divert trains towards either Kingscourt or Athboy, the Signal Suite is Ireland’s most unique bridal suite. This two-roomed accommodation stands alone and separates from the rest of the hotel making it incredibly private and personal. Not only that, it has been tastefully decorated as well.
