Wedding Ceremonies

Martinstown House is a wonderful place to hold your ceremony or blessing.

It is our pleasure to offer Martinstown House for your Wedding Ceremony. We feel so lucky to have such a variety of amazing spaces that are picture-perfect and suited for any style of wedding.

We are happy to host all kinds of ceremonies: HSE civil ceremonies, Humanists, Spiritualists, and everyone else too.

Found at the end of a magical walkway in the laurel and evergreen trees of Martinstown House, The Woodlands is an enchanting and tranquil place. It is perfect for couples who want to make their vows in natural surroundings. We rescued the old abandoned glasshouse from the woods, and, using tin found in a neighbour’s field, old telegraph poles, a glorious crystal chandelier and a little imagination, we’ve created Ireland’s most unique and beautiful spot to get married.

The Victorian flower beds are planted with lush greenery, and stretching above is one of Ireland’s few Californian Coastal Redwood trees. There is a built-in PA system with 2 radio mics. Surrounded by nature and birdsong, and protected from the elements, there is enough space for 300+ guests.

We have also held beautiful ceremonies on the front lawn, as well as on the croquet lawn and under the cherry trees in the walled garden.

We have three beautiful rooms in the main house that are well suited to intimate ceremonies. Our Drawing Room can seat up to 60 and provides an elegant setting. With high ceilings, beautiful art, antiques and a roaring open fire, it is an old world classic. For even smaller parties, we can seat up to 35 in our Dining Room, and up to 12 in our Morning Room.

We do not charge extra for holding your ceremony when you celebrate with us. We’re honoured to share the most special part of the day with you. Ceremonies are available from 2pm.

St. Paul’s Ballysax is a beautiful non-denominational church less than 1 mile away. You will need to organise your own officiant or priest to conduct the service. 

There are also several churches nearby such as the Church of the Sacred Heart in Kilcullen (7km), the Carmelite Friary in Kildare (11km), and St. Brigid’s Cathedral in Kildare (11km).
