Weddings at Blackwater Castle
History, heritage, nature and a warm Irish welcome meet in a spectacular setting at Blackwater Castle, a twelfth Century Castle on the banks of the River Awbeg, which is surrounded by woodlands and a private river and is the perfect setting for a unique Irish Castle wedding. Visitors gracing the Castle down through the centuries include the third century blind magician Mogh Ruith, Strongbow’s Men at Arms, Sir Walter Raleigh, and the “King of Pop” Michael Jackson. Oliver Cromwell and his army also laid siege to the Castle so why not follow in the footsteps of some of the most famous and infamous figures from the past and celebrate your union in a unique setting?
There is no formula at Blackwater Castle – you will have complete control over all arrangements so your celebration will reflect your unique style and requirements. Our wedding couples are not drawn to the idea of a hotel wedding which they feel will force them into a formulaic event which more suits the hotel’s arrangements rather than their own requirements. At Blackwater Castle we actively encourage you to turn convention on it’s head if you wish and arrange the type of celebration that bests suits you and your spouse to be and not your venue. We offer contacts of those who can assist you in preparing your special day from caterers and bar staff to magicians and beauticians but we give you complete freedom with the arrangements and help you every step of the way in achieving a Castle Wedding that will live long in your memories and those of your guests.
