We had our wedding at the Markree Castle in April 2014 and from the get-go we were treated like royalty. We can only describe our wedding day as magical!

We would highly recommend Markree as a wedding venue. It's so beautiful there, making our photos look great. The staff are so helpful, everything was perfect, nothing is too much for them and they helped take all the pressure out of organising the day. Having the place to ourselves made the day feel so much more special and personal. The ... Read More

Our wedding took place in Markree Castle on a sunny day in May 2014. We first visited Markree in January of 2014 and immediately felt welcomed by the roaring fire and the relaxed atmosphere in the Castle. The decision to have our civil ceremony in the Castle chapel was made very quickly. We can’t say enough about Markree and the ... Read More

We got married at Markree Castle in March 2014. From the time we booked in April 2013 right up until the wedding we could not have been happier with the service provided. We made our booking with Jeremy and he and every member of staff we encountered were brilliant, so accommodating and helpful yet easygoing - instead of adding to ... Read More

SPECTACULAR!! Having spent a magical day in Markree Castle for my older brother's wedding 7 years ago, there was no doubt in my mind where I wanted to spend mine! No other venue came close. From once we met with Jeremy and Simon after we got engaged, everything was so simple. They couldn't have been more obliging. We had an ... Read More

From the first moment we visited Markree Castle, we were spellbound by the venue and surrounding gardens. We then met Jeremie, Simon and Lorna Jane who worked with us to make our day one of the best days of our lives. They were very easy to work with not only on the lead up to our big day but also ...

Markree Castle speaks for itself as the historic building is situated on the most beautiful grounds however the staff and relaxed atmosphere of the venue really made up our minds. Simon, Jeremy and Emma were so accommodating and even created my favourite dessert to add to the wedding menu! The Castle has amazing food, a great wine list and we ... Read More

I would really recommend Markree Castle for wonderful food and ambience. The castle has kept so many original features. A gorgeous huge log fire burns in the main hall, I fell in love with the place as soon as I walked in the door. The staff were personable , helpful and professional. The dining room is fabulous and overlooks the ... Read More
