Venue Overview

Foxford Rd, Ballina, Mayo
The Most Romantic Hotel in Ireland. Est. in 1876 this Victorian Gothic house exudes a vintage atmosphere and offers an intimate, unique wedding venue for summer, autumn, spring or winter weddings. Service and quality are central to Mount Falcon weddings.


Mount Falcon  is known as " The Most Romantic House " in Ireland because the original house, which dates back to 1871, was built to gain a young brides hand in marriage.

With 32 bedrooms and 30 lodges dotted around the estate couples are ensured sufficient, on site, accommodation for all their guests. The Estate offers 100 acres of parkland with mature forest and a 3 acre lake thus providing mutiple opportunities for unique photographs. In the main house many of the features have been restored to their orignal splendour with pitch pine floor boards and shutters, fireplaces, Victorian tiling, cornices and servant bells. Very Downton Abbeyish !

We believe the heart of any wedding reception is the food. Thereby our Cullinary Team are on hand to ensure that this tradition is maintained throughout your special day.

Whether it is a sunny, summer wedding with strawberries and champagne on our manicured lawn,  a winter mulled wine reception with roaring turf fires or a civil ceremony; Mount Falcon has a proven record and reputation for all. In order for us to understand your requirements we do not restrict the amount of time our events coordinator spends with you.

We invite you to a private viewing of the hotel and its facilities after which we sit down to go through any questions or queries you may have. We will then hold, on a provisional basis, your required wedding date for two weeks. Within which we ask that you forward a deposit in order to secure your preferred date.

This is followed by your tasting in our award winning 'Kitchen Restaurant'. All the while we would encourage you to keep in contact with us for any requirements you may have.These are some of the reasons why Mount Falcon is one of Irelands premier wedding reception venues.

From the moment we walked into Mount Falcon towards the warmth of the open fireplace on a breezy June afternoon we knew we were on to a winner! Meeting Alan for tea and a chat to go over potential wedding details while nestled in a vintage bay window further convinced us this beautiful setting was

the way to go. From day one Alan was the utmost professional and meticulous in helping us plan our wedding.The staff of Mt Falcon were amazing and always so welcoming. Attention to detail - such as being quietly whisked away for snacks and bubbly during our welcome reception so we finally had a chance to eat - was truly appreciated.

On that note, the food and service did not disappoint! Our guests are still raving about the food for which Mt Falcon is well known. And the bride and her mum enjoyed the opportunity to stay at Mt Falcon and complete a food tasting earlier on in the year which was perfect for fine tuning the menu and for a glimpse of what was ahead.

We loved the story behind Mount Falcon and the scale of the house - perfect for our wedding of 110 guests & for one weekend only we could adopt this stunning home as our own. Or pretend at least! We loved all of the existing and authentic features and the fact that they have been so carefully maintained - the original floor boards, door handles, the architect's drawings. The bridal suite was out of this world with stunning views. We have been to Mt Falcon a few times leading up to our wedding, each time we fall in love with it all over again and will be back to celebrate our anniversary (or anniversaries!) for sure.

Mount Falcon is perfect for a Wedding

Maura and Alan were incredible on the run up to the wedding and on the wedding day itself. You couldn't ask for two more caring coordinators.
They helped us make my day as special and they had to deal with a few thrown in extras including a gospel choir, a

fireworks display and a few ice sculptures that I forgot I had ordered.

The venue was amazing and having a venue in December with the winter frost and open fires made the place feel magical.

The food was incredible the portions were amazing and everyone still talks about the chicken and bacon crown.

All in all Mount Falcon is a special place with special people and I have and will recommend it to everyone.

We will be going back in December to enjoy it and to see that amazing Christmas Tree.

Lots of Love,
S & S Gavin

We got married here in late May 2017 and it all went perfectly. Alan helped coordinate our wedding very efficiently and we were treated faultlessly on the day too. Given they were catering for 100 people, the food was amazing (especially the canapes!). Our guests had fun, were impressed with the

venue and loved the food - what more can you ask for. The sun even came out. The pool and hot tub were a nice bonus for the day after. Finally, I've never seen such a nice hotel room as the suite we stayed in.
Although it's a while after the event, I wanted to say thank you again to Mount Falcon Estate and Alan for everything you did for us. The day was 100% perfect and much of that was down to you and your team.

Well, Mount Falcon Estate, we were both delighted with how the day went. All of the staff were incredibly helpful and attentive - they really made us feel like it was a special occasion and I know all of our guests felt the same. We appreciate that having so many family members there can be a

little demanding but nothing was an issue and everyone felt very welcome.

We had a lot of comments on how great the food was, and we were really impressed with how all the meals were on the day. Having everyone together for breakfast was also really nice, particularly when it meant our guests in the lodges could all come up to the hotel and recall the previous nights fun!

The hotel and grounds are a beautiful place to host a wedding, and the setting was just what we wanted. It meant we could have exactly what we had hoped for - a weekend with all of our friends and family and a party in a beautiful location. This was really made possible by everyone involved from Mount Falcon.

And a big thank you again, to our coordinator Alan. He was a great help to us both at every stage.

Mount Falcon is the perfect venue for a relaxed intimate wedding.
The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. The manor itself is stunning! I love the open fires and cosy snug rooms. The bridal suite is beautiful and so spacious with gorgeous views.
