An ideal wedding hotel in Northern Ireland - An enchanting oceanside venue at the Royal Court Hotel.

The Royal Court Hotel’s reputation for providing an outstanding service and superb cuisine is well justified and the number of weddings and functions we host reflects this. The Royal Court Hotel is the perfect location to hold your wedding reception. The view alone is reason enough. But by no means the only reason.

The Dunluce Room overlooks the Skerries and the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful scenery and more often than not breathtaking sunsets mean that not only may you have stunning photo opportunities but also your guests will be able to see some of the best aspects of the beautiful north Antrim coastline.

A Northern Ireland Private Wedding Venue | Orange Tree House

Orange Tree House is a beautiful, private wedding venue nestled on the shores of Strangford Lough in the pretty, historic village of Greyabbey.

Created from a church dating back to the 1820s, the stone barn style main room, with its original exposed beams, is the perfect setting for a romantic wedding ceremony. After the formalities, you and your guests can relax on the terrace overlooking the lough towards the Mourne Mountains or enjoy a cocktail in the gothic style orangery with the welcome crackle of the open fire.
