Located in South Galway Lough Cutra Castle is a n exclusive location for the hosting of your wedding celebrations and indeed any other special events you may have planned. Utterly unique, a wedding in the Castle can be as personal as you want to make it. Unlike a Castle hotel we do not tell you what to do, but offer suggestions and guidance to help you make decisions about your wedding. Lough Cutra Castle is very privately situated, in a glorious position at the heart of the private 1600 acre Lough Cutra Castle Estate, perched above the water and surrounded by manicured lawns, mature woodland and parkland scenery.
On entering the Castle gates and passing by what is known as the "Dog Lodge" your guests will be inspired by the beautiful scenery all along the mile long driveway before they see glimpses of the Castle through the boughs of ancient oak trees. On entering the Castle they will be stunned by the sumptuous decoration throughout. The four main reception rooms offer unparalleled comfort and style to small and large parties alike, while the grounds offer an ideal situation for any who wish to explore a little further.
You can sip champagne overlooking Lough Cutra, the one thousand acre lake from which the Castle takes its' name. The Gough Room allows friends and family to relax in informal splendour before entering the lavishly decorated Saloon and the Dining Room for their meal. Following dinner dancing takes place under the vaulted ceilings and Bacchanal plasterwork of the Great Hall.
Anything up to one hundred guests can dine in the Saloon, a further sixty in the Dining room, and if your guest list is larger another forty in the Gough Room, meaning as many as two hundred can share your special day with you. If your numbers are more than two hundred a marquee may be erected on the Garden Terrace adjoining the Saloon.
- In order to reduce some of the pressure on the Bride and Groom we always offer a suite in the Castle as a wedding gift.
