“Planning our wedding at Markree Castle was a joy!. We planned our wedding for over a year from Sydney and it was seamless, Deirdre was always so responsive to any queries we had and made the whole process so enjoyable. We would highly recommend couples planning weddings from home or abroad to choose Markree Castle!”

“Just know that if you book your wedding here, you will not only have an amazing life experience, but you are guaranteed to have stunning photographs as well. Guests raved, and can't stop saying, it was the best wedding they have ever and will ever attend.

Venue: My husband and I live in the USA and wanted a unique destination wedding experience. While looking for castles all around Europe, Markree Castle definitely stood out aesthetically and had the best value. We rented out the entire castle for 2 nights and wished we had stayed longer!
Food: Markree Castle’s chef definitely gets a 10/10. Sadly, many times you expect the food to be subpar when made in large quantities, but not here. The food was hot, tender and most importantly, well seasoned. I feel confident that no matter what we would have selected from their extensive menu, it was sure to be something outstanding.

Staff: The real gem of the castle. Growing up in hospitality I understand the importance of having a knowledgeable staff that cares not only about your stay, but the stay of all of your guests. The customer service at Markree Castle is what you wish 5-star hotels gave you. There was nothing too little or big for anyone on their staff. Everyone made it a point to make sure your every need was met. Deirdre and Nicholas, our wedding coordinating team, were great from the very beginning. Having the pleasure of working with them for many months leading up to the wedding, they were absolutely wonderful. They were always prompt to answer any question or concerns we may have had, and made us feel completely comfortable and confident that our wedding was going to be just as amazing as it was.”

“We had a brilliant experience planning our wedding at Markree whilst living overseas in Singapore. The detailed video tours of the Castle allowed us to be sure the venue was right for us and we were happy to confirm our booking without an in-person visit. In short, we have nothing but good things to say about planning and having our wedding at Markree Castle whilst living overseas, and would highly recommend it to anyone considering the Castle as a venue!”
