30 bedroom exclusive use castle, sleeping 60 guests, in Sligo, Ireland

Markree Castle is an historic Irish castle wedding and celebration venue, located in stunning County Sligo, north-west Ireland. Markree was purchased by a renowned family of Irish hoteliers and has since undergone extensive renovations to bring it up to the highest achievable standards. The castle re-opened its doors in March 2017, as a luxury Irish wedding and exclusive-use venue and it really is difficult to imagine a more romantic castle wedding destination.

During the renovation process, the number one objective in mind was to ensure the character and history of Markree Castle was not only protected but emphasised, whilst offering an unbeatable guest experience.

"We had our wedding at Markree Castle, it's a truly magical place and our guests were raving about the ambience of the castle from the moment they arrived. The friendliness of the staff and the high quality of food provided, not just during the wedding banquet but also the next morning at breakfast, were also highlights according to our guests. This is a genuine historic Irish castle, and I can not recommend it highly enough."
