Built in 1692 historic Horetown House is ideal for couples looking for something a little bit different. Your wedding is an opportunity for you and your guests to get away from it all and enjoy a ‘home from home’ atmosphere in the grand surroundings of our charming country house in the wilds of Wexford.
Move in the night before and get ready on site, or join us on the day of your wedding. To make your guests feel at home we will greet them with Prosecco and freshly prepared canapés and guide them to a cosy spot in the Drawing rooms or our Tea room. Our White Room is the perfect ceremony backdrop and can be decorated to suit your style, or if the weather behaves we have beautiful outdoor options. As we are family run and look after every wedding personally we have a strict limit on the number of weddings we host each year to ensure you get our full attention and support.
We grow flowers, herbs and vegetables on site and our Ballymaloe trained Head Chef Tim works closely with lots of local suppliers to bring you fresh seasonal menus for your wedding day. We strive to deliver our luxury service whilst reducing our impact on the world around us. We are working hard on reducing single use items in our house and gardens and whilst it is an ongoing journey it is one we are committed to into 2020 and beyond. With our team of friendly staff, we’ve been hosting weddings for 20 to 200 guests all year round and on any day of the week since 2009. Your guests will enjoy private use of the house where we can sleep up to 26 people in our luxurious bedrooms and 40 more in our village of Shepherds Huts. For all other guests staying in the numerous local B&Bs and self-catering houses, our shuttle bus service will see them all safely home.
We got married in Horetown House in June, and everything was just amazing! The fact that we're now really sad we don't have a reason to pop down there anymore is a testament to the venue and the amazing job that Niamh, Kate and the whole team did for us. Our guests were so impressed with the venue and decor, the outdoor ceremony location, the food, the gin bar.... and the pigs too of course! Would recommend to everyone as an ideal wedding venue

Niamh and her team went above and beyond to ensure that we had the wedding day we always dreamed of! She was there on hand throughout our whole weekend in Horetown and looked after everything with such detail and professionalism. It's lovely to see someone with a true love for all things wedding and felt she was just as excited about our big day as we were!! The food, venue and service was second to none! Niamh, Kate, Tom and whole team are amazing at what they do and we can't thank them enough!

We fell in love with Horetown House as soon as we saw it. The marquee style dining room was exactly what we were looking for and the meal on the night was unreal. The ceremony room is idyllic and the party continued until the wee hours in the basement bar, which was fantastic. Niamh, Kate and all the staff were amazing over the couple of days we stayed there and couldn't do enough for us. We couldn't speak highly enough of the entire experience.

The venue itself is amazing, mixing beautiful old world charm with modern comfort and convenience. The ability to have the place to ourselves for the three days was incredible and really made the whole thing feel like the comfort of home but with the amazingly special surroundings at Horetown.
