Whether you are planning a grand country house wedding or a small exclusive celebration, a classic elegant white wedding or an alternative Bohemian one, a pretty vintage-themed wonderland or a super-stylish party with a contemporary vibe, one fact remains true: There is simply nowhere more romantic, more magical, more perfect than Clonwilliam House. The house and grounds are available for a limited number of weddings and parties every year.


Six luxurious bedrooms - sumptuously furnished with family antiques and crisp linens and boasting ensuite bathrooms with cast-iron roll-top baths, wetroom-style showers and double handbasins - are available for guests on a B&B basis for the days around your wedding or party. Your own personal butler service is available to tend to your every need. You and your party have exclusive use of the stunning swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and gym, with a range of indulgent treatments available to you on your request. A host of activities can be arranged to entertain you including clay-pigeon shooting, walked-up shooting, archery, woodland walks, and golfing with the picturesque and historic Woodenbridge Golf Club on your door-step.


Small weddings or other parties can be catered for in the dining room. Any greater number can be accommodated in a marquee beside the house, with the house used for the drinks reception and as the backdrop to your day. Our wonderful and experienced caterers can work with you to create the perfect menu to suit your style and taste.  We will manage and coordinate your day for you to ensure that everything runs as smoothly and elegantly as you could possibly wish, and can recommend wine merchants, florists, musicians, beauty specialists, wedding cake specialists and all other suppliers to make your day complete.  We will work with you to ensure that you and your guests enjoy the warmest of welcomes, the very best of culinary experiences, the most elegant of surroundings in the most spectacular of settings.


A number of well-known hotels and guesthouses are within easy reach for your guests.  In particular, the picturesque Woodenbridge Hotel, the oldest hotel in Ireland, is located just 5 minutes away, and transport to and from it can be arranged for guests.  There are also a number of beautiful stone-built churches close at hand, notably the lovely and historic Catholic church and Church of Ireland church located 3 miles away in Avoca.  Situated in picturesque Woodenbridge, a short drive from Dublin, Clonwilliam House, is, without doubt, the ultimate in luxury wedding venues in Ireland.
