The castle is the go-to place for couples – including celebrity Pierce Brosnan who wed Keely Shaye Smith there in 2001 – looking for an ideal “fairy tale” wedding.
With the two new programs, it is practically seamless to create the perfect celebration.
For a large wedding of up to 166 guests, the Royal Wedding Proposal offers exclusive use of the estate and showcases the elegant George V dining room, located in the heart of the castle and outfitted with 11 Waterford Crystal chandeliers.
The Regal Wedding Proposal caters to smaller weddings of up to 40 people, taking place in the intimate setting of the Connaught Room, once the Lord Ardilaun’s Library. Both packages offer a consultation with Ashford Castle’s resident wedding coordinator to help the bride and groom plan their idyllic wedding.
