If elegance is your thing then cast your eyes over these idyllic, intimate wedding reception rooms of the best Irish ballroom wedding venues we could find.
These beautiful ballrooms will draw nothing less than a ‘wow’ from every wedding guest as soon as they walk through the doors of your wedding venue…
The Renaissance Suite at Galgorm Resort & Spa
Opened in April 2014, The Renaissance Suite is Galgorm’s latest masterpiece. Luxurious materials including rich leather seating, antique gold leaf mirrors, solid oak panel walls, a feature fireplace and chandelier bar create decidedly different, but timeless and opulent feel. But it’s the backdrop which is truly outstanding; behind the top table stands a dramatic fully glazed wall, giving a panoramic and never to be forgotten view of the cascading waters of the River Maine.
The Capel Suite at Castlemartyr Resort
The Capel Suite is the Cork venue’s largest and most lavish ballroom. Elegantly designed, it features dramatic chandeliers and floor- to-ceiling windows with magnificent drapes which close over in the evening time offering a completely contrasting setting for day and night celebrations.
The Ballroom at Powerscourt Estate
The Ballroom is an exceptional space and often regarded as the focal point of the 13th century Palladian mansion. The impressive high ceiling and dramatic marble pillars that line the edges of the room are grand and majestic, yet the space is somehow still minimally styled to be effortlessly personalised for your wedding reception.
The Ballroom at Farnham Estate
The unmistakeably modern aesthetic of Farnham Estate’s Ballroom makes it the ultimate wedding venue for an ultra-stylish couple who want to celebrate in surroundings that are as on-trend as they are. The warm wooden panelling and exposed brick walls are a chic contrast to the contemporary fittings and fixtures, which creative couples will love.
The Connaught Room at Ashford Castle
The Connaught Room, for smaller more intimate weddings, is one of the finest rooms in all of Ashford Castle. Rich in wood carvings and delicate furnishings – this room is for a couple who want nothing short of all-out opulence. A unique and priceless feature is the handcrafted Inglenook, reaching twenty feet to the oak ceiling.
The Constitution Room at The Shelbourne
If you’re planning a very small gathering, the Constitution Room will inspire you. It’s the historic venue’s most famous room, where the Irish Constitution was drafted by Michael Collins in 1912. Today, with its original furniture, luxurious silk wall coverings, crystal chandelier and magnificent views over St Stephen’s Green, it’s a superb wedding function room to experience the venue’s renowned fine dining.
The Kennedy Room at Cultra Manor
One of the last mansions of the landed gentry to be built in Ireland, Cultra Manor is set at the very heart of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. Dating back to 1902, it retains much of its traditional architectural splendour with original period features and detailing. The Kennedy Room is an intimate setting for receptions, adorned with chandeliers and stunning views.
