From my many years of experience as a wedding photographer in Ireland and as someone who has visited a huge amount of venues throughout Ireland, I have put together the ultimate guide to finding the perfect location in Ireland for your wedding day.
The Cliffs of Moher – Destination Wedding Location
First up, take a look at this sensational engagement photoshoot that I worked on along the windswept Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare.
I absolutely love to hear that one of my brides and grooms have chosen an Irish castle for their wedding day. There is something incredibly magical about an Irish castle. It feels like there is a piece of Irish history around every corner and there is no shortage of locations to capture the romantic moments of a bride and groom as they enjoy their first moments of married life.

Lough Rynn Castle
Lough Rynn Castle is another one of my favourite castles in Ireland. It is a stunning location in Co. Leitrim, with beautiful grounds and it is well worth your consideration for the perfect destination wedding in Ireland.

For a more vintage feel to your wedding day in Ireland I have the perfect location for your consideration. Ballybeg House in County Wicklow is a magical country home away from home. At this location they have an intimate chapel to exchange your wedding day vows. The rustic shebeen is a favourite of mine as the rugged brick backdrop makes for fabulous wedding day photographs.
For the wedding day reception, they have a Victorian Marquee. The interior of the marquee has a distinct Victorian style, complete with lace curtains, draped ceilings, chandeliers and a beautiful wooden which all work together to create a very special WOW factor!

The Millhouse Slane
For a bride that has been dreaming of a rustic barn house wedding day, The Millhouse Slane is another perfect destination wedding in Ireland. You will exchange your wedding day vows in a beautiful old fashioned rustic barn house. I have seen this decorated with fairy lights and wild Irish flowers and it is a very special location for your wedding day. A walk across the courtyard brings you into the old manor house and they have an extended marquee out the back for your wedding day festivities to roll on to the very early hours of the morning.

The Bayview Hotel at Ballycotton
I couldn’t finish this post without giving The Bayview Hotel at Ballycotton in East Cork a mention. It is yet another perfect place for a destination wedding in Ireland. Set along the rugged coastline, this hotel has some of the most remarkable views that Ireland has to offer. If you are dreaming about your wedding day pictures set against the seashore then this destination will impress you. The quaint picturesque harbour plays host to the villages fishing boats and as they bob on the water at sunset, the view is simply stunning.
