Knappogue Castle Weddings

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and naturally you want everything to be just perfect. Knappogue Castle has captured the hearts of countless brides and grooms over the years and we strive to make wedding your day uniquely special. 

Knappogue Castle is becoming increasingly popular with overseas couples and we are a short step away from Shannon International Airport. A castle wedding in Ireland is our speciality!

Knappogue Castle Weddings can be individually tailored to make your dream wedding come true. Our dedicated wedding co-ordinator will discuss options to deliver your personal requirements. We will discuss the many options available to you. Themed weddings are our forté. The Castle features many magnificent rooms, great halls, and truly romantic gardens.

The main banquet hall can seat a minimum of 80 and a maximum of 150 guests. The MacNamara Room caters for an intimate gathering or you can join your guests for refreshments in the Dalcassian Hall – an impressive reception antechamber.  Celebrate a truly unique wedding blessing in the Clancullen Hall as it affords everyone a view with its railed balconies and also overlooks the charming surrounding countryside.  

The Walled Garden & The Rose Garden

Surrounded by the tranquil landscape and rolling hills of County Clare, Knappogue is located in a truly picturesque setting. Here you can celebrate an outdoor wedding blessing in the magnificent Walled Garden, and enjoy a welcome drinks reception with your guests and of course have your beautiful wedding photographs. Alternatively the formal gardens are very close to the main entrance and offer a more intimate castle backdrop for your wedding pictures. Both venues make ideal ‘day after’ Barbeque or Buffet locations.

Civil Ceremonies and Private Blessings

You can enjoy a private intimate blessing in the Castle’s private chapel - St. Marks Chapel - or celebrate your ceremony with a larger group in the Clancullen Hall. For civil ceremonies the MacNamara Room is ideal.

Honeymoon Mead

In ancient times it became custom for the Bride & Groom to drink Mead for one full moon after their wedding, hence the term ‘Honeymoon’.  It was believed that Mead held magical powers of virility and fertility. Enjoy a welcome drink of Mead at Knappogue Castle!
