Markree Castle is the most magical venue - we could not have been happier! It was the perfect setting for our romantic fairytale wedding. Deirdre, Nicholas, and the rest of the staff are so helpful and warm - we felt at-home right away. We rented the castle for 3 nights - arriving for the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding and leaving 2 days after the wedding. It was so wonderful to wake up on the morning already where we needed to be, and to be able to go back to our room whenever needed. Plus, the wedding day goes by so fast - we loved having the full day after to relax and enjoy the castle / chat to our guests. (We hosted a murder-mystery game the day after - would definitely recommend that, the setting made it so special!) One of our favorite things about Markree is that there are so many cozy rooms / sitting areas where you can enjoy a chat with a smaller group. It may seem like a small thing, but we've been to a lot of weddings this year, and this is something we found ourselves wishing for at all of them. We chose the WB Yeats package - all of the food was delicious. The bartender/s made excellent cocktails throughout our time there. The late night food in the butler's pantry was delightful - everyone loved it and are still talking about it. For our ceremony, we did initially plan to have it outside, but the wind and rain prevented us. That was totally fine though, because Markree's chapel was a gorgeous alternative. Plus, the day after was sunny and beautiful, so we got to enjoy the grounds anyway. It's been a few months now, and we're still reminiscing about the wedding and the castle. We're still receiving compliments from our guests on how amazing the wedding was - truly in great part to the venue. Thank you so much, Markree, we will certainly be back to visit.
