You’ve dreamt about your special day in vivid detail – from the delectable menu, and the exquisite flowers, to the timeless music, and special first dance. But to make your wedding an inspirational and memorable event for all in attendance, you must choose a location that is unlike any other.
Destination weddings are all the rage. And although many couples are flocking to Hawaii and Jamaica to tie the knot, there is a growing trend toward old-world locations that offer an undeniable atmosphere of magic and fantasy and class. Castle weddings are now one of the top five most requested destination wedding locations. What could be more magical than having your wedding at a historic and elegant castle in Ireland?

- Ashford Castle – a beautiful Victorian built in 1228, now a 5-star luxury hotel on the Mayo/Galway border in Ireland.
