Ireland's Dream Wedding Destinations — Luttrellstown Castle Resort

When it comes to picking your wedding day destination, there's a lot of pressure to make the perfect choice. 

If you've always dreamed of having a wedding to remember, then you'll know that only a truly memorable venue could do the job. Why not someplace like Luttrellstown Castle Resort?

Only half an hour from the city centre, this beautiful and centuries-old building can be found at the heart of a lush 560 acre estate. Being wrapped in ivy and boasting architectural features of both a medieval stronghold and comfortable castle estate, you don't see sights like this every day.

Love is in the air

Do you want to feel like royalty on the most special day of your life? Then surely there's no better venue than an actual castle.

It even feels like Luttrellstown was made for lovers.

With its high ceilings, ornate furnishings and carefully manicured lawns, the setting is positively dripping with fairytale opulence. 

Which is probably why the resort was included on Conde Nast Traveller's 2014 Top 10 Outrageous Wedding Venues.

You may not want to leave

One thing you never want said of a wedding is that it was boring — luckily that'll never be an issue round these parts.

The list of activities available to guests of the resort are ridiculously extensive. Indoor examples include samba drumming, wine tasting, cocktail making and tai chi.

Since the grounds are so immense, there are also plenty of activities you can do outdoors too, like archery, clay pigeon shooting, quad biking and much, much more.

The food doesn't disappoint

When the digs look like this, you'd assume the nibbles are just as classy — and you'd be dead right.

Guests who arrive for a wedding reception can expect prosecco as well as hot and cold canapés on arrival (which is the kind of reception we could get used to).

The following meal is made up of five courses, including a starter, soup or sorbet, a choice of two main courses, dessert, tea or coffee and petits fours. 

There will also be snacks on hand later in the evening, should the guests be in need of refreshments after a particularly strenuous Siege Of Ennis.

Made for weddings

Extravagance, comfort and memories to last a lifetime — isn't that what wedding days are all about? 

Well, that and love, we suppose.

Luttrellstown offers an escape from everyday life, letting you step right into a fantasy. If only for a day.

Besides, just think of the photo ops you'd get at this place...
