One of Ireland’s best loved Family-Run Hotels, the County Arms Hotel is Offaly’s first Four Star Hotel. Following a period of extensive redevelopment, we now offer a stunning setting for Weddings and a luxurious environment for your guests. At the County arms Hotel, we focus on ensuring that you have the flexibility and choice to allow us to plan your dream wedding day and because we’re Family Run, you know that we will be there for you every step of the way.
The quality of our Food is probably the most important ingredient to any Wedding Reception. We match our award-winning Food with attentive, experienced service, magnificent 200-year-old walled gardens for your photographs and possibly the finest Bridal suites in the country, each nearly 2,000 sq. ft.
The County Arms Hotel is a very popular destination for Weddings from Offaly, Laois, East Galway, North Tipperary and Westmeath. Our Brides and Grooms love the difference between this friendly, efficient Family Run Hotel and the faceless corporate Hotels that dominate modern Ireland.

Other facilities include 70 Bedrooms with “Wedding Rates”, the Springs Leisure Club & Wellness Suites, Lively Bar and Restaurant.
