A BRIEF HISTORY
Ballymagarvey is steeped in history dating as far back as the thirteenth century when Princess Gwenllian ap Iorwarth (daughter of King Llywelyn of Wales) married William De Lacey (son of Hugh De Lacey) of Meath, and inherited Ballymagarvey after his death in 1233, and later Sir Christopher Bellew, Elizabeth Wood, and Francis Fleetwood. Many couples have started their married lives together here like Thomas and Melinda Osborne, Robert and Henrietta Clouston, and more notably Sir Thomas Ainsworth who married Lady Edina Hope Conyngham (daughter of the Marquis of Conyngham, Slane Castle) in 1911.
All of these people, in their own way, have added to the rich and vibrant landscape of Ballymagarvey, spanning centuries of romance and new beginnings.
For 800 years Ballymagarvey has been touched by such a human endeavour that our promise is to continue this tradition of excellence by providing a unique environment where guests can come together to celebrate their special day in such enchanting and mystical surroundings.
Today guests can still see the mill race, water wheel and beautifully restored granary buildings around the Courtyard. There are 7 Courtyard Cottages with a total of 20 bedrooms, as well as 8 bedrooms in the Schoolhouse Accommodation and 9 bedrooms in the Manor House.
The Mill Loft is now our Ceremony Room and the millers’ cottages our splendid Banquet Hall, fit for a Prince or Princess! With original exposed beams and cut-stone walls, all our rooms exude character, retaining an old-world Victorian charm and elegance.
