Lough Cutra Castle Weddings
Located in South Galway Lough Cutra Castle is an exclusive location for the hosting of your wedding celebrations and indeed any other special events you may have planned. Utterly unique, a wedding in the Castle can be as personal as you want to make it. Unlike a Castle hotel we do not tell you what to do, but offer suggestions and guidance to help you make decisions about your wedding.
Lough Cutra Castle is very privately situated, in a glorious position at the heart of the private 1600 acre Lough Cutra Castle Estate, perched above the water and surrounded by manicured lawns, mature woodland and parkland scenery.
Entrance to the Castle
On entering the Castle gates and passing by what is known as the “Dog Lodge” your guests will be inspired by the beautiful scenery all along the mile long driveway before they see glimpses of the Castle through the boughs of ancient oak trees. On entering the Castle they will be stunned by the sumptuous decoration throughout. The four main reception rooms offer unparalleled comfort and style to small and large parties alike, while the grounds offer an ideal situation for any who wish to explore a little further.
Irish Castle Weddings, a Lough Cutra Castle Speciality
You can sip champagne overlooking Lough Cutra, the one thousand acre lake from which the Castle takes its’ name. The Gough Room allows friends and family to relax in informal splendour before entering the lavishly decorated Saloon and the Dining Room for their meal. Following dinner dancing takes place under the vaulted ceilings and Bacchanal plasterwork of the Great Hall.
Within the Castle we can seat anything up to 140 comfortably in two adjoining rooms.
The Saloon can hold up to 90 guests, while the Yellow Dining Room can seat up to 50.
To accommodate more guests a marquee is required.
In order to reduce some of the pressure on the Bride and Groom we always offer a suite in the Castle as a wedding gift.
The remaining accommodation in the Castle is also available for rental if required (two night minimum). The whole Castle accommodation consists of nine bedrooms served by eight bathrooms sleeping up to eighteen. For further information please see the Castle Rental section. We also have three self catering holiday cottages which can sleep up to twenty three guests altogether. Located around a courtyard built in 1846, they can be hired individually or together.
