Waterford Castle Hotel & Golf Resort Weddings
Waterford Castle Hotel and Golf Resort is uniquely situated on a private 310-acre Island, enjoying a truly picturesque and enchanting location on the River Suir. Access to the Island is by our private car ferry, operating throughout the day.
Experience a wonderful sense of anticipation as you make the short crossing by ferry to the island and travel the beech-lined drive to the castle. As you enter the massive studded oak doors on your wedding day as husband and wife you will be surrounded by the castle’s 500 year old history to celebrate the most romantic and memorable occasion of your lives with those you hold dear.
The 16th Century Castle combines the gracious living of an elegant past with every modern comfort, service and convenience providing a stunning venue for an unforgettable Wedding Day. The antiques, period décor and delicate details throughout the castle will captivate your imagination bringing you back to times gone by.
Imagine having the most special of days on your very own private island in a castle that’s exclusively yours for your wedding day.
The warm ambience of the award-winning Munster Room with its original oak-panelled walls, ornate ceilings, dramatic portraits and painted scenes creates an atmospheric backdrop to a memorable dining experience perfectly complemented by a comprehensive wine cellar and resident pianist.
Tailor-Made Menus All of our wedding banquet menus are individually tailored to suit the personal tastes of all our Brides & Grooms. Our highly acclaimed head chef meets with every couple getting married at Waterford Castle for a person to person wedding menu design consultation. From this consultation a menu is planned based on the specific tastes of the couple combined with our chef’s advice on what is in season at the time of year the wedding will take place and his own extensive knowledge and experience.
Waterford Castle can cater for weddings of up to 120 guests.
Marquee Weddings can also be catered for on the Castle’s Croquet Lawn, for wedding parties exceeding the 120 guest limit.
The Night Before
Why not enjoy a rehearsal meal with your closest family & friends in private surroundings on the eve of the biggest day of your life.
The Morning of…
Imagine waking up in a four poster bed, excited that after so much planning that the day has finally arrived.
A light breakfast with family and friends, after which you get ready for your wedding ceremony in the splendor of the Presidential suite, a hairstylist & make-up artist can tend to your every need in the privacy of your suite.
The Day After
Extend your wedding celebrations by another day and enjoy all the Island has to offer. Take in the thrills and spills of our 18-hole championship golf course, test your shot with clay pigeon shooting, have a picnic on the island, or simply take a leisurely stroll around the 310 acres of woodland and parkland. Finish off your wedding celebrations on that evening with a gourmet barbeque, or the spectacular ‘Pig on a Spit’ in the relaxed atmosphere of our clubhouse lounge or on the croquet lawn weather permitting
