Galway city

Cloonacauneen Castle is a historic & exquisite increasingly popular wedding venue only 7.6km from Galway city centre.

It is located off a main road & away from street lights. And once inside the grounds, there is a feeling you could be anywhere in the countryside. Yet it has the convenience of a quick taxi ride from the city.

Many couples dream of a castle wedding but there aren’t many castles nestled away in the countryside on the outskirts of a city, much less Galway City. Your guests will thank you for it.

There are lovely characterful rooms for indoor photos, some with old fireplaces & old original door features.  The grounds are great for family photos on a fine day & the castle acts as a grand backdrop.

A real gem for a small to medium sized wedding. All wedding couples, it really is worth a visit.

Tower Room

The magnificent tower room on the first floor of the tower has a medieval large open fireplace. Anytime I’ve been there, there has been a crackling firewood ablaze in it. The gothic wooden vaulted ceiling adds further character to an already brimming characterful room. The tower room is ideal for wedding couples & their bridal & family photography. And the fireplace makes the perfect backdrop.

Wedding Day

Whether you’re having a small intimate wedding, a civil ceremony or a larger number of guests there is a function room, luxurious dining room or spacious banqueting hall to suit your needs.  Indeed, if you’d like a pig roasting on a BBQ for your wedding, there is an area with heating & background music perfect for your wedding day.  Contact the Cloonacauneen castle dedicated wedding team to guide you through your wedding day. Rest assured you’re in very capable hands.
