Weddings

For couples who are looking for a uniquely romantic setting for their wedding day, the 16thcentury Newtown Castle located in the heart of the Burren in the West of Ireland is the ideal venue, allowing for a ceremony as individual as you are. The castle commands spectacular views of the surrounding Burren landscape, a breathtaking backdrop for photographs.


Your wedding ceremony will take place in the Main Hall of this four storey round tower - which can accommodate up to 40 sitting guests. The Minstrels Gallery overlooking the Main Hall can comfortably take a further 20 guests or provide an ideal stage set for your musicians.


A tree lined avenue, red carpet on arrival, the Main Hall bathed in candlelight and flowers will create the atmosphere of intimacy and elegance unique to your wedding day.


Newtown Castle is available for Blessings, Civil Ceremonies and Partnerships and we will work with you to create an event tailored to your requirement.



"My husband Kiel and I were married at Newtown Castle in 2012 and it feels like it was just yesterday. The castle was the perfect spot for us to get married and we truly remember every detail of that special day! Thanks for letting us be a part of the Newtown Castle history."

"Our wedding day at Newtown Castle will forever hold a special place in our hearts. The 15th century tower set against the rolling countryside of County Clare provides the perfect location for both the ceremony atop the tower and pictures amidst the beautiful scenery. Add some burning turf below the mantle and a traditional Irish Harpist and you'll have a day to remember forever. Our friends and family were so excited to be a part of this occasion one of the best experiences of our young lives!"

Michael and Beth O'Brien, 15th October 2012


"I still can't get over how beautiful that area is! We absolutely fell in love with the stark beauty of the Burren. It was a remarkable setting. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. I will never forget walking up the stone steps of the Newtown Castle to meet my husband in front of friends and family. It was such a unique, romantic yet comfortable area--we absolutely loved it and we can't wait to come back and celebrate many anniversaries in the future."
