Wedding Testimonials


We love nothing more than recommendations from past guests, especially when they are a couple who celebrated their wedding with us. We are delighted to share the following testimonials with you:
"We traveled to Ballynahinch on our first trip together and knew even then that it's a special place. Seven years later, we came back with our closest family and friends for an unbelievable wedding weekend. Having the grounds to yourself and the incomparable hospitality of the Ballynahinch staff makes you feel like you're in your own home. The grounds and castle building offer so many different options for holding various events and gatherings that you can truly tailor your wedding and make it your own. After asking our loved ones to travel so far (all from the United States) to celebrate with us, it made us happy to simply know that they were well looked after in the beautiful, recently renovated rooms and enjoying themselves around the grounds. And the food! We're still talking about the food! We feel very lucky to have Ballynahinch in our lives forever." Catherine & Jacob September 2019
"We had our dream Christmas wedding at Ballynahinch which surpassed every expectation we ever had. The breathtaking landscape and the elegant style of the castle was the perfect backdrop to host our family and friends who travelled from all over the world to this very special place. The most magical part of our wedding was that we felt like we were in our own home. The staff at Ballynahinch could not have done enough for us and they made every single guest feel both welcomed and ease. We cannot thank the staff enough for making our special day one we will never forget!" Tracey & Billy December 2018
"We were lucky enough to get married at Ballynahinch Castle in Spring 2017 and we can honestly say it was incredible. The castle is set in one of the most beautiful locations in the world and everything from the warm welcome at reception to the silver service dining exceeds all expectations. The staff are exemplary, not only did they cater to our every whim but together they create such a friendly relaxed atmosphere that you feel as if they are an extension of your own family, helpful, supportive and so kind. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding weekend so special." Laurna & Nick April 2017 
From the magnificent surroundings, the inviting atmosphere and the fantastic food, Ballynahinch Castle was the perfect location to host our wedding day. A hidden gem with breathtaking views of the Connemara countryside, our guests are still talking about how unique and special the experience was. The team were all so welcoming, from the initial meeting with the wedding coordinator to the last glass of bubbly poured, everyone went above and beyond to make it feel like Ballynahinch Castle was ours for the day, a home away from home. We look back on our wedding day with the warmest memories of a wonderful, relaxed and romantic day spent with our friends and family that will truly last a lifetime. Holly & Richard December 2016
“We enjoyed the most magical wedding day in the spectacular setting of Ballynahinch Castle. The staff did everything possible to make our day so special to our family and to us” Orla & Caroline, November 2016
"Connemara is a very special place for us and Ballynahinch was the perfect venue, aside from the stunning setting it offered the perfect atmosphere - relaxed luxury without being stuffy. Everything was faultless, the food was amazing and the staff were incredible and made all our dreams come true. It was the most magical and perfect weekend, we couldn't have wished for more" Vicky & Charlie, October 2016

Amazing staff will guide you and look after you from the moment you make an enquiry.
You can be assured your wedding ceremony will be as perfect as it can be! Monika & Pete, June 2016

"We had a wonderful stay here from Friday to Sunday for a friends wedding. The rooms were lovely, well sized, each with its own quirk or special feature. The food the night before the wedding was fantastic, but was fabulous at the wedding breakfast also. We loved breakfast in the conservatory - can recommend the catch of the day and the ham! During your stay, try to take a walk in the grounds too - they are fantastic.The staff are friendly and helpful at all times". Floella W, April 2017
