A marquee wedding in Ireland brings the outdoors inside. Having a marquee allows couples to have their wedding anywhere, whether at home or beside a river, lake or mountain range. Indoors, they are magical with linen tablecloths, floral centerpieces and even a red carpet.
Coolbawn Quay is located on the eastern shores of Lough Derg in North Tipperary. It is bordered by forests and rolling fields.
The village resort is so pretty with little houses that you and your guests can stay at, all located around the lake. Photos on the decking beside the lake or at the bobbing boats at the marina is a must.
Then, pop into the intimate pub for a drink for a break and back out to the magical marquee for some more photos. Never a dull moment!
Glasson Country House and Golf Club is a four star stunning hotel in Glasson, Co Westmeath. The sweeping driveway with golf club is a beautiful backdrop for photos. At the back of the hotel you can see the lovely lake shimmering in the sun.
The bridal party can have fun and take a golf buggy down to the bridge and the edge of the lake for some images. If it is raining, the old part of the house is sheltered for photos.
Inside the hotel is modern with a spiral staircase, all with natural light. The banqueting room is quite large and again allows for great views of the lake.
The Hodson Bay hotel is a four star hotel in Athlone on the shores of Lough Ree beside the Athlone Golf Course.
No couple can refuse photos with the lake and reeds in the background. Take a relaxed walk around the little harbour and even get a photo on one of the boats tied up at the harbour.
The gardens near the hotel are nice for photos too!
Castle Leslie Estate is a real Irish castle wedding hotel venue located in the secluded village of Glaslough in Co Monaghan with over 1,000 acres of countryside around the estate.
There are too many photo opportunites to choose from on our wedding day with the lake, the boathouse, the gardens, the hotel itself, the marquee, the conservatory and the stables.
Inside is real old world decadence with cosy bars, libraries, four poster beds and a grand staircase.
The sample menus on their website look yummy too!
