Castle Weddings in Sligo, Ireland

Markree Castle is a stunning Gothic Style Castle, set in the heart of the stunning Sligo Countryside, and is a truly authentic, relaxed and uniquely charming Wedding Venue where you will find yourself immersed in unrivalled castle hotel comfort.

Markree Castle has recently been purchased by the Corscadden family and is the fourth Castle Hotel in Ireland to be owned and run by the Corscadden family. Previously Markree was the home of the Cooper family for over 370 years and will continue to be loved and cherish by its new owners.

Markree Castle is currently closed for renovations and will reopen in Spring 2017.
We offer Exclusive Use of the Castle and grounds to you and your guests for your Special Day.

Couples can choose to arrive to their Arrival Reception by boat or gather for a civil ceremony within the Castle in the original Chapel at Markree.

Guests can relax and enjoy the beautiful grounds and Drawing Rooms within the Castle during the arrival reception while enjoying a welcome drink and delicious selection of canapes.

Your Gourmet Five Course Dinner is served in the Grand Golden Ballroom, which can seat up to 150 guests and following dinner, guests return to the Drawing Rooms on the ground floor to dance the night away.
