Not so difficult to believe it, but Ireland is pretty much a haven for a lot of celebrities. Besides the bigger cities of Dublin, Ireland is still relatively untouched by paparazzi and prying eyes. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that so many celebrities decide that a wedding in an Irish castle is the perfect amount of romance and privacy for them. Here are some of the biggest Irish celebrity weddings to take place in the last few years….
Irish Celebrity Weddings…..
Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith
This Meath man and Bond actor decided to tie the knot to television host Keely Shaye Smith at Ballintubber Abbey, county Mayo in 2001. The two headed to the 13th century Ashford Castle for their reception. The church castle ‘s aisle was decorated with 10-foot-tall flowered candelabras and glowed with the lights of hundreds of church candles. The 60-year-old is still going strong with Keely to this day.
The stunning Kinnitty Castle provided the perfect venue for Boyzone’s Shane Lynch in August 2007 when he married Sheena White. Former Boyzone boss Louis Walsh was just one of the wedding guests. As well as this, Boyzone’s former bandmates all turned up for Lynch’s big day.
Brian O’Driscoll and Amy Huberman
Irish Rugby star Brian O’Driscoll and actress Amy Huberman tied the knot in 2010 at Lough Rynn Castle in County Leitrim. Their “low key” day was kept tight-lipped about the date of the wedding until last minute. Definitely our favourite Irish couple EVER, how friggen amazing does Amy look. P.s if you’re reading this Amy, we would like to be your BBF please…
