Steeped in history, this restored railway station is nestled in the picturesque village of Kilmessan in the heart of the Boyne Valley Drive, in County Meath. The Station House Hotel is one of Ireland's finest wedding veneus.
The refurbishment draws inspiration from travels across the globe, where Irish country chic meets with eclectic influences from India, Istanbul, Middle East and beyond. The blend of local Irish made furniture and hand-made accessories from international artisans, combined with original antiques from The Station House and it’s history as a busy railway junction, all combine to give the venue its unique feel and charm.
Some of the more unusual design features include;
The Slattery family started to welcome guests in 1983 and launched the award winning Signal Restaurant on Easter Saturday night, 1984 with a bang! Since then, they and their team have won numerous awards and built a reputation for excellent food and service, using the freshest Boyne Valley produce, and ensuring that everything from the berry compote to the brandy and peppercorn sauce, is home-made to perfection! This food ethos carries through to each and every wedding at The Station House Hotel, making it not only a unique destination for it's beautiful gardens and historic charm, but also for it's wonderfully fresh and delicious dishes.
The original train station buildings and features have been lovingly restored by the Slattery's, and now sit on twelve acres of manicured gardens and woodlands, listed in the Boyne Valley Garden Trail.
The original stone Turntable, set amidst the woodland and hidden gardens, provides a truly mystical setting for your outdoor ceremony, whilst the Carriage Suite, originally the engine and goods room, is perfect for hosting elegant indoor ceremonies and celebrations with original granite stonework, wood panelling and seating for up to 190 guests.
