Martinstown House is an enchanting country house hidden at the end of a meandering drive lined with 200-year-old Irish yew trees. The house, gardens and woodlands are full of magic and picturesque romance. With a flare for different ‘reveals’ throughout the day, you can guarantee that your guests will enjoy the uniqueness and beauty of your wedding celebrations at Martinstown House.
We’re located just 40 minutes outside of Dublin in the rolling Kildare countryside, within 140 acres of our own parkland. We offer exclusive and unique celebrations with many personal touches and incredible attention to detail and service.
Martinstown House is a stunning private home, with seven beautifully appointed bedrooms exclusively for you. No other venue in Ireland can provide the same experience of complete luxury, home comforts, and the space to create your own unique wedding day.
Tucked quietly within the trees is our Woodland Ceremony space. Built from the ruins of an early 19th century glasshouse, we’ve converted it into a rustic open-air wedding ceremony area with a permanent roof structure to keep the Irish weather at bay. It’s a perfect place to get married for those looking for a really unique, and nature-centric ceremony. We’ve also hosted ceremonies within the walled garden, and smaller ceremonies in the Drawing Room.
Our antique Tibetan gong will ring your friends and family into our beautiful Walled Garden. Here lives our vintage three-pole marquee decorated with thousands of fairy lights, trees, antiques, comfy leather chairs and Indian lanterns. With our Ballymaloe trained chef and an emphasis on quality local food, you can be sure your guests will be well looked after, whether you choose a formal banquet or more relaxed served spit-roast buffet. We can cater for 2 to 250 guests.
