Civil Weddings at Stunning Ardgillan

The perfect romantic setting can really help set the tone for your wedding day. A wedding at Ardgillan is a chance to significantly enhance your special day – and the elegant Ardgillan Castle provides the perfect backdrop for couples who choose to have a civil wedding.

Ardgillan Castle and Demesne is Ireland’s hidden gem. Set in spectacular parklands overlooking the Irish Sea, as well as the castle, the demesne features a walled garden, rose garden, Potentilla garden and a magnificent herbaceous border all of which present a marvellous profusion of colour for photographs.

Our civil ceremonies take place in the opulent atmosphere of the castle Drawing Room. Filled with period features, paintings, artefacts and grand decoration, the beautifully-appointed Drawing Room is the most extravagant room in the castle with views out over the front elevation of the demesne and the Irish Sea beyond.

The bride and groom are seated at the focal point of the room with the superb backdrop of the conservatory providing a luxurious frame of foliage for the duration of the ceremony. Wedding guests are also afforded the use of the sumptuous entrance hall and the plush surrounds of the Dining Room for wedding photographs.

As well as its lavish and meticulously-groomed gardens, the spectacular surroundings at Ardgillan also provide unique photograph opportunities for couples to capture their wedding day for posterity and create memories that will last forever.

Brambles Ltd. catering facilities are available for a light reception after the ceremony. For further information including menus/ prices, please email
