Irish Castle Weddings

If you have always dreamed about having your wedding in an Irish Castle, you are not alone! There is something about our mystical landscape and traditions that lends seamlessly to romantic and magical weddings. With churches dating back to the twelfth century, fairytale castles and iconic historical buildings and locations, Ireland is steeped in history and meaning.

With over 3000 castles and castle ruins dotted all over the Irish landscape, we are spoilt for choice and it is no surprise that castle weddings are without doubt our most popular request here at Olivia Buckley International. We have had the pleasure of creating countless Irish Castle Weddings at some of the most spectacular and iconic 5-star luxury castles in the country and Irish Castle weddings remain an incredibly popular draw for everyone from A-list celebrities to Fortune 500 CEO’s. From Beatles member Paul McCartney who married Heather Mills at Castle Leslie in 2002, to the ultimate fashionistas Victoria and David Beckham who wed at Luttrellstown Castle in 1999, to Hollywood star Piece Brosnan who held his Irish Castle Wedding to Keeley Shay at Ashford Castle in 2001 and sporting superstar Rory McIlroy who married Erica Stoll also at Ashford Castle in 2017.


Ireland has magnificent castle wedding venues offering breathtaking grounds and scenery, rich history, sumptuous décor and the option of complete exclusivity and privacy. We understand the importance of you and your guests’ privacy, therefore, we have secure and proven procedures in place to ensure your privacy is protected at all times and have planned and executed high-profile and private events at many Irish Castle Wedding Venues. Confidentiality is the foundation upon which Olivia Buckley International is built and we have surrounded ourselves with the best in security, closed protection teams and vendors who all adhere to our strict privacy and confidentiality policies which are core values of our company. Ensuring every single vendor is representative of this and are knowledgeable of their expectations and timings are what leads to complete privacy and impeccable execution of our large, high-profile events.
