Your Castle Wedding


Markree Castle is a stunning Gothic style castle, set in the heart of the beautiful Sligo countryside.

Couples can choose to arrive to their arrival reception by boat, or gather for a civil ceremony within the castle in the original chapel at Markree.

Guests can then relax and enjoy the beautiful grounds and drawing rooms within the castle, while enjoying a welcome drink and delicious selection of canap├ęs, before enjoying a sumptuous meal and dancing the night away.


Our chefs at Markree Castle have a passion for bringing local quality produce from its source to our table. Their inspiration is reflected in the quality of our ingredients and innovative menus.

Your gourmet 5-course dinner is served in the Grand Golden Ballroom, with its world-famous Roccoco style plasterwork, which can seat up to 150 guests.

The quality of our produce is a top priority and wild fallow venison from the estate is a seasonal treat, as is our own lamb and produce from the castle garden.

Call in, or contact us, to arrange a private viewing of Markree Castle, one of the finest wedding castles in Ireland.
