With only 29 bedrooms, a licence to hold civil ceremonies and outstanding food, the Athenaeum House Hotel Waterford is the perfect wedding venue to hire exclusively for you and your guests to celebrate your dream wedding.

Just let your imagination run wild… we have contacts for suppliers who can provide just about any sort of theme you can think of. We appreciate that each and every wedding celebration is a unique occasion and we work hard with you to bring your dream wedding to reality, indeed our aim is to exceed your expectations!
