Rathmullan House Weddings

Make your special day an unforgettable experience
We know this is the most important day of your life, so we make sure a wedding at Rathmullan House is exactly the way you want it. Whether you’re hiring our private dining room for up to 60 people or would prefer exclusive use of the whole hotel which is suitable for weddings from 70 to 150 (other guests can be accommodated at nearby B&B’s and self catering chalets), the family and staff work with you every step of the way to ensure an unforgettable experience.

Everyone should feel special on their wedding day… and feeling special is what Rathmullan House is all about. Both Mark & Mary work closely with photographer’s, bands, musicians and wedding stylists and will happily make recommendations for your day.

This stunning Georgian house can be yours after breakfast on the day of the wedding and you can let the story of your wedding unfold just as you imagine it: Photographs in the award-winning gardens. Champagne in the elegant lounges. Fine food served with personal attention in our intimate and elegant dining room. You can relax and enjoy all the style and comfort of one of Ireland’s leading country homes.

Weddings at Rathmullan House are hosted outside our busy times. We find the house works best as a wedding venue when the rooms are taken exclusively by the wedding guests, creating a very special and intimate atmosphere for the celebrations. Exclusive use of the house creates an environment where your guests feel at home, and allows us give the wedding party our undivided attention.

At many of our weddings we welcome people and families who’ve stayed at Rathmullan House before. They know the quality of the rooms and the food, and the beauty of the surroundings. They know, too, that the house can weave its own spell around the romance of the wedding day. We host a limited number of weddings in Rathmullan House each year, outside the peak summer months. Each season, autumn, winter or spring, has its own magic. Couples also find that the wedding arrangements are easier to make in the off-season and more guests are available to enjoy the occasion. If you’d like to experience how Rathmullan House is as special as your wedding day, please get in touch.

A typical wedding at Rathmullan house
It begins with the arrival of guests on the evening before. An informal supper and drinks in the Cellar Bar gives the opportunity to make new friends and renew old acquaintances.

Breakfast at Rathmullan House is rightly famous and a leisurely and relaxing start to the wedding day. There may be time for a stroll in the gardens or on the beach before getting ready.

Upon the return of the bridal party and guests from the Church they are greeted with a drinks reception, which can be enjoyed in one of the four elegant lounges or outside, weather permitting.

Hot or cold canapés are served while the bridal party, are having photographs taken which should last no more than 2 hours. Rathmullan House is the perfect backdrop for stunning shots of the bridal party and guests.

The wedding guests are then called through to the wedding breakfast in The Cook & Gardener Restaurant with its domed roof and fairy lights.

The restaurant is set for tables of 8 or 10 people. They are tastefully dressed in white linen, with simple bud vases, white tea light candles and personalised menus.

The bride and groom are announced and they make their way to the top table. Some parties take this opportunity to have their speeches on our PA system.

Orders are taken at the table which allows the individual taste of each guest to be catered for. The wedding breakfast is prepared using where possible the best local ingredients and served to a very high standard. Red and white wine can be served continuously throughout the meal or bottles left on the table.After the wedding breakfast, there is an opportunity for speeches and cutting of the cake.
Tea and coffee are served in Batts lounge to allow guests to mingle and for the band to set up. The number of guests attending will dictate when and where the band will set up.

As the reception draws to an end at midnight, the bar closes, the band finishes and guests move to the Cellar Bar where midnight munchies are served and the bar remains open to 2.30am.
