Your wedding greeter!For those brides seeking a destination wedding location that will make them feel like Cinderella, what’s a more appropriate choice than the abundance of Ireland’s castles. And with March being the month of the Irish, let’s put on the glass slippers and explore a couple!

 Ashford Castle ( is located approximately 41 kms from Galway City. It is Ireland’s internationally award-winning Castle Hotel, set in extensive formal gardens on the shores of Lough Corrib. Its architectural features date back to its 12th century origins. Luxuriously appointed and tastefully furnished, the castle is famous as a hunting, shooting and fishing centre for visitors to west Ireland.(Ever wanted to hunt with a companion falcon?) There is also a 9 hole golf course and tennis courts located on the 350 acre estate.

Ashford Castle has retained the charm and dignity of its original architecture. It is a visual feast where you will be able to enjoy everything from Waterford chandeliers and roccoco gilt mirrors to the sight of a carved Dante looking down at you from the walls. Whether you seek out the exhilarating feeling of its regal open spaces or the more cozy  and intimate corners, their professional and friendly staff will be there to care for you , and to share with you their experiences and knowledge of the castle and estate. 

The castle has welcomed and entertained its fair share of celebrities and public figures including: Rod Stewart, Princess Grace & Prince Rainer of Monaco, President & Mrs. Reagan, John Travolta, Barbara Streisand, Jerry Springer, Jack Nicholson and Russell Crowe to name just a few.

The sister to Ashford is Dromoland Castle (, one of Ireland’s finest castle hotels. It is the ancestral home of the O’Briens, direct descendant of the High King of Ireland. This secluded castle is majestically set on over 410 acres of land with lush green pastures, ancient forests, historical points of interest, flora and fauna.

Dromoland Castle offers its guests deluxe accommodations and the experience of living like landed gentry, surrounded by breathtaking scenery, absolute luxury and exceptional service.  

Located near the Shannon Airport and the cities of Limerick and Galway, this castle makes it an ideal base from which to explore the exceptional beauty of the Shannon region.
