Boutique Wedding Experience
Unique, Private, Personal
From small intimate weddings of less than 20 guests in the main house, to parties of 140 guests in the banquet hall, to larger marquee weddings; we can accommodate them all here at Loughcrew Estate. We have many spaces and amenities that can be used to facilitate your dream wedding.
A unique, bohemian setting
Loughcrew Estate is not your average “wedding venue” . It is your own private estate for the entirety of your celebrations, a place where your whole family can join you and relax in the Irish countryside. Your guests will be blown away by the magic of St Oliver Plunkett’s church ruin and the quirkiness of our stables and courtyard. A completely different, alternative backdrop for your big day.
Loughcrew Estate is filled with warmth, love and fun – all that an Irish wedding encompasses. Come and experience the magic of Loughcrew by making a viewing appointment today
The Perfect Partners
Loughcrew Estate is a unique and beautiful place to stay for you and your whole family. Sleeping 17 in the main house, friends and family are welcome to stay in our adjoining accommodation – The Courtyard Apartment (sleeps 5) & The Stable Lodge (sleeps 6). There is ample additional accommodation available in the country town of Oldcastle and surrounding areas. Some of these options aerea:
Loughcrew Lodge – the old gate lodge of Loughcrew Estate is owned by antiques dealer Niall Mullen and is beautifully decorated
Oldcastle House Hotel – a quaint, old-style country hotel. Rooms are large, spotless and very comfortable. The manager, John Joe, is a delight to chat with!
Loughcrew Megalithic Centre – a budget friendly hostel can be found just up the hill. They also have a very cool yurt for hire, complete with wood burning stove.
Ross Castle – Yes, a castle! Very comfortable rooms located in Ross just 10 minutes down the road. Call our friend Jackie for more information

When we started looking at venues for our wedding we had a clear idea of what we wanted; a personal bespoke wedding... The house itself felt like a home away from home. We had exclusive use with our immediate families staying with us all weekend. The vast grounds with the idyllic scenery was picture perfect and was only made better by the beautiful romantic St. Oliver Plunkett’s church which we got married in. We cannot recommend this venue enough if you want a personal, relaxed and alternative wedding.
Loughcrew was the perfect location for our special day. It is an intimate venue where we were given the freedom to be creative and design our wedding to suit our personalities... we were blown away by the beauty of the grounds and St Oliver Plunkett Church was a magical setting for our ceremony. A big thank you to Deborah and the team at Loughcrew for your support… our wedding was an absolute fairy-tale!
During May 2017 my son and his wife had their Wedding celebrations in Loughcrew House. They could not have chosen a better location, the venue was just perfect. Loughcrew House is surrounded by splendid gardens and green countryside, great local walks and interesting history, not to forget a great coffee shop on site. Deborah was extremely helpful and kind, and went out of her way to be there if needed. The house itself is just amazing, great furniture and artwork full of quirky charm. Personally I would fully recommend it as a wedding venue, (or a venue for any event) it is far superior and different than any wedding I have ever been to.
We got married at Loughcrew in September of last year and couldn't have found a more special location for our big day. The church, venue and accommodation all situated on the Loughcrew estate grounds and surrounded by the beautiful county Meath countryside were perfect. Thank you to all the wonderful Loughcrew staff who were on hand all weekend to make our big day run effortlessly.
