Lisnavagh House, County Carlow will certainly be on the agenda’s for brides-to-be this coming year. As well as being the centerpiece of an extraordinarily beautiful 800 acre estate, the romantic Victorian Gothic mansion has swiftly become one of the most sought after wedding venues of 21st century Ireland.
With glorious fire places in the historic library, dining room and school room, along with individually styled bedrooms (amongst them a four-poster described as ‘the most magnificent bed in Ireland’ by The Irish Times) Lisnavagh is exactly as an old country house should be, brimming with character and an eclectic mix of family portraits and heirlooms. It’s a house that invites you to linger and can be hired along with its wonderful gardens (and guest cottages) for an entire weekend, opening up the possibility of more intimate celebrations the day after, perhaps a barbecue and croquet match on the lawns.
Wedding parties up to 80 guests can be held in the house and for larger parties there is a gorgeous marquee adjacent to the house amidst the 14 acre garden.
