What a unique opportunity to say “I do” in your own private Medieval Gaelic Tower House dating back to the 15th century. The 500 year old Ballyportry castle has been beautifully restored with careful attention to retaining all its original features and style, yet with the comforts of the 21st century.
From the entrance a stone spiral staircase takes you up to the top of the tower house to The Great Hall where your Ceremony will take place. Picture exposed oak roof trusses and an open fire, it really doesn’t get more romantic than this! After your intimate ceremony you can enjoy a feast fit for a king and queen prepared by your Ballymaloe trained personal chef using the finest locally sourced produce.
Toast to your happiness with incredible views of the surrounding countryside from this ancient high vaulted Great Hall. Ballyportry Castle is set on 5 acres of wooded land that is grazed by donkeys and horses and surrounded by lakes and streams. At night the gate of the 17th century encircling bawn wall of the castle frames the moon as it rises over the distinctive shelving outline of the Clare hills.
Your marriage is the start of a great adventure and what better way to begin that adventure than in an Irish castle steeped in history.

As each ceremony is unique we can also tailor make a package for you; we can include a videographer who can capture those memories to share with your family and friends, and we can also offer a variety of musicians; guitarists, singers, uileann pipes to name but a few. There is also the option of staying overnight at Ballyportry Castle. We would love to create a package that suits all of your requirements.
