Civil Ceremonies

For a civil, Humanist or Spiritualist wedding ceremony, you need a venue with a real sense of occasion. Very few places that host wedding receptions can also offer a really special ceremony venue on the premises.

Markree Castle is registered for civil ceremonies and partnerships, which can take place in a choice of five different locations which include two indoor and three outdoor options.

If you have always dreamt of a traditional wedding, the Chapel will fit your needs perfectly. The Chapel at Markree Castle, which boasts beautiful stained-glass windows and an antique church organ, is the only onsite chapel in an Irish Castle!

Our other indoor ceremony option is among the rich décor in the Grand Hall. This intimate but impressive location is a great choice for Spiritualist and Humanist ceremonies and blessings.

Alternatively, if you would prefer to say your vows amid the beauty of the great outdoors, we have three outdoor locations for you to choose from;

The stunning natural setting of the castle terrace – which overlooks the estate’s manicured lawns, rose garden and wishing well.

If a woodland setting is what you’re looking for, then underneath the trees in our landscaped forest is a special and intimate location.

Or perhaps a ceremony among our manicured gardens may be the perfect spot for you to say “I do”.
