The majestic Cabra Castle, from the Romantic Castles of Ireland collection, is set on over 100 acres of beautiful parkland and gardens right on the Cavan, Meath and Monaghan borders, with the magnificent backdrop of Dún a Rí Forest.

A family-owned and run castle hotel, Cabra Castle hosts only one wedding per day, ensuring that you receive the personal attention that you require and deserve, on such a memorable day. From the moment you arrive, you and your guests will be treated like royalty!
On arrival, you will be greeted by the haunting melody of traditional bagpipes and a warm and personal welcome from Oscar, the castle’s very own Irish wolfhound.
Hand-painted ceilings, exquisite antiques, Gothic-style leaded windows, Waterford Crystal Chandeliers and the grand staircase all contribute to a unique setting and the ultimate romantic backdrop for your day.
Cabra Castle offers excellent accommodation for your guests and wedding couples get a choice of two bridal suites, which are fast laying claim to the title of ‘Most Romantic Bridal Suites in Ireland'!

I cannot recommend Cabra highly enough. Our wedding day and the whole lead up to it could not have run smoother. Johnny, our personal wedding planner and all of the team at Cabra are unbelievably professional and accommodating but most of all, they are real and down to earth. No matter what we asked for, it was no problem and it was done to perfection. Our wedding experience was so personal to us. We were not just another wedding. Our guests are still talking about the food, the wine and the service.
Cabra Castle inside and outside is a gorgeous setting with its own unique charm and they take so much pride in its upkeep. Our photographs needed no thought. There are so many grand rooms and beautiful backdrops inside and out. You will have no regrets making Cabra your wedding venue.

We had the most amazing wedding day and we really wouldn’t have changed anything. The weather wasn’t great but despite this, the Management and staff went above and beyond to make our day so special. From our first meeting, right until our last greeting, we were made to feel special. The staff were all so polite and would greet you with a smile. The food was fabulous and everyone is still talking about it! The rooms were fabulous, clean and spacious.
Lorraine, Emma and the team really looked after us and nothing was too much trouble. They are truly a venue that will look after you from start to finish. The grounds are fabulous and even a bad day you have the opportunity to take pictures inside. The interior in the rooms maintains the character of a castle venue which was amazing for our photos and really quirky! There is nothing I would fault about our experience, it was truly amazing and perfect for us! Thank you Cabra Castle Management and staff for having us and especially for exceeding our expectations!

From day one, when we came across the wonderful Denise at a wedding fair, we were so drawn to the venue as well as her warm manner and genuine hospitality. We knew Cabra Castle would be a very strong contender. We went to see the Castle soon afterwards and fell in love with all it had to offer, inside and out.
The staff were so friendly and inviting that we knew it was the right place for us, our friends and our families. In the run-up to the wedding, the team put our minds at ease. Any question or query we had was met with a "No problem" attitude. They bent over backwards for us and really made the whole process so easy. They were extremely accommodating to family members with mobility issues and looked after all special requests. We stayed the night before the wedding and our family really got to know and love the castle and staff, just as we did.
The morning of the wedding was fantastic. Every need was catered for and the rooms were divine. We had our ceremony in the castle and everything went off seamlessly. The room was exactly as we had imagined - stunning and warm. The food at the reception and dinner was outstanding and our guests are still talking about the fantastic quality and quantity of food served. Our guests were also highly complimentary of the staff, particularly their warmth and friendliness. We too can vouch for that. We had a wonderful second evening in the castle where we were yet again treated like royalty.
We cannot thank the staff enough as they really were key players in making our wedding day the most special and memorable day of our lives. A big thank you to Denise, Johnny, Mary, Rose, Lorraine, Laura and everyone in between. Our family and friends are still gushing about the unforgettable experience they too had with us last February. We could go on for hours... Thank you all so much! We cannot wait to come back for our one year anniversary (our family are also coming with us, as they loved it so much).
