Kippure Estate, County Wicklow. A Truly Stunning Marquee Wedding Venue!

Around 30 minutes from Dublin, in the heart of County Wicklow, you’ll discover some of the country’s most stunning countryside, including everything from craggy, granite mountains, to heather-carpeted hills and ancient woods.

Get back to nature and enjoy the endless photo opportunities that the source of the River Liffey and the Wicklow Mountains have to offer.

Wedding Ceremony Options at Kippure Estate

Wedfest Area:  Plan a festival-style wedding in our amazing Wedfest area adjacent to the dining marquee, with mountains and valleys to the east.

Gazebo Ceremony:  Our picturesque wooden gazebo is set on a large expanse of lawn, giving you the majestic Wicklow Mountains as your backdrop.

Forest Ceremony:  Set in a magical glen, these intimate ceremonies are perfect for slightly smaller weddings, making the most of the surrounding nature.

Beautiful in every way.
Venue Service

By Brian O Connell and Rachael Lindsay, on 03 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 21 Mar 2017

We got married here 31 March 2017 and the staff was wonderful, especially Jenny who created the beautiful decor and who knew how much we wanted an outdoor ceremony held out until the last minute to decide. Alas the weather won, and we had our ceremony in the marquee, but it did not spoil it one bit. It was beautiful in every way. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable day by all with fantastic food and well-mannered staff. Thank you!

Just the perfect day!

Amazing venue, brilliant coordinators and just the perfect day! Excellent value also! To all the staff in Kippure, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the most treasured memories of our lives.

Something different, memorable and in nature.
Venue Service

By Pamela Lennon & Ed Hoey., on 03 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2017

We cannot thank the staff enough for providing such a beautiful, unique experience for our outdoor wedding in June 2017. Our friends and family are still talking about it and said it was the most fun they ever had at a wedding. Cary the wedding planner was fantastic help and good fun over the past 18 months. Jenny the coordinator went above and beyond ensuring everything went perfectly on the day. We enjoyed every minute. I cannot imagine you would get anything close from a hotel, but this is certainly a venue for couples who want something different, memorable and in nature.

An absolutely fantastic day!
Venue Service

By Anne & John, on 03 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Aug 2018

We had an absolutely fantastic day in Kippure for our Wedding in August. From Start to finish what a perfect, stress-free venue for our Wedding. Kippure is such a relaxed, fun yet perfect venue and we would highly recommend. The complete unspoiled beauty of the venue and surrounds really creates a spectacular backdrop. Our guests all said they had a fantastic day and the pictures say it all! The staff at Kippure could not have done any more, from the planning at the beginning with Cary to the fantastic management on the day from Jenny and team, the day flowed seamlessly, they went out of their way to accommodate everything. We left the decoration and everything up to the team in Kippure and the venue looked really really beautiful, exceeding all expectations. We had a second day of a Barbeque which really finished off the weekend with their famous pig on a spit! I couldn’t recommend it more, we had an absolute ball! Thank you so much for making it such a special day.

We fell in love with the views and the atmosphere
Venue Service

By Christina & Vinnie Walker, on 03 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018

This was the only venue that we looked at - we fell in love with the views and the atmosphere the moment we arrived. We were a little apprehensive about their ability to host a wedding, but as soon as we met the wedding team we knew we'd made the right decision! From the moment that we arrived on Friday, until we left on Monday morning, it was a fantastic experience. The food throughout the weekend was excellent (we had food in the marquee on Friday night, our wedding on Saturday and then a BBQ on Sunday) and all the staff were exceptional! All of our guests commented on the great food, the relaxed ambiance and the amazing scenery - many saying it was the best wedding that they had been to. Jenny was there on the day and everything was perfect - nothing was too much trouble. She made the day so relaxed and enjoyable. The houses are basic, but they were all clean and good value for money. If you are looking for a relaxed, enjoyable venue, we can't recommend Kippure enough!

By Annette & Jim, on 17 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Jul 2014

We had our wedding here last month and I am struggling to find words good enough to describe it! Our wedding for us was everything we had hoped for. We were very lucky to have the weather to have our blessing outside between two ash trees overlooking the surrounding nature and mountains. All the flowers in the garden were in full bloom and it really added lots of colour to our pictures! We wanted our blessing to be natural, magical and relaxed and this setting more than delivered! The food and service was top class with every need we had being met with a smile! Huge compliments to the chef who managed to cater for everyone from coeliacs to vegans! As far as the accommodation goes it was very comfortable and set in a little bit of heaven and a lot of our wedding guests are already planning a return visit! Myself and my husband couldn't recommend Kippure Estate highly enough!

By Caroline Byrne, on 31 May 2013

Caroline and I were married at Kippure in a Celtic handfastng rite on 24/4/2013. Grainne played a massive part in the happiness we enjoyed on our day. The team, Ann, Celine, Cecelia and Tom and their staff made our guests feel more than at home. The food and especially the cake was fantastic, so many thanks to Catherine. All the Kippure team made us and our guests feel special for the two days we were there. It was a good day when we first met Grainne. So many thanks to you all. We'll be back. Caroline and Michael Byrne (Mr & Mrs)
