Rockhill House

Rockhill House can trace its roots to the 17th-century plantation of Ulster. Seat of the Chambers family for 172 years, it was acquired in 1832 by the ornithologist, John Vandeleur Stewart. He oversaw a radical remodeling of the property and cultivation of the lands to create the lush, Georgian idyll that remained in his family until the 1936 sale to the State. An Irish Defence Forces headquarters until 2009, their exit began a period of vacancy that saw Rockhill slip into disrepair.

When today’s owners, the Molloy family, got the keys in 2014, a vast task met them. So began the two-year labour of love for the family, completing their exquisite restoration. Now, Rockhill’s great halls are filled with light and the colours and textures of its Georgian tastemakers, and the house has entered a new era of warmth and welcome. You're sure to have a picture-perfect wedding at Rockhill House.

Capacity: 140 people for sit-down dinner in the Orangerie (160 if side-rooms are used.) The private dining room seats 38.

Accommodation: 19 double bedrooms

Package price: POA

Type of venue: Country House

What makes your venue unique: "The warmth of our distinct Donegal welcome is unparalleled. The local produce feeds into the hearty, creative Rockhill cuisine, which is part of a confident new Wild Atlantic food culture."
