About Markree Castle

Markree Castle - with its relaxed atmosphere, picture-perfect grounds and luxury accommodation - provides an ideal location to celebrate with family and friends, and the freedom to create a wedding that you have always dreamed of.

Surrounded by 500 acres of beautiful Sligo countryside, Markree Castle is located in the north-west of Ireland on the route of the Wild Atlantic Way. Extensive renovations were completed in 2017, allowing Markree Castle to reclaim its position as one of the finest historic castles and wedding venues in the land. Reopened in March 2017 by the Corscadden family as an exclusive private hire wedding venue, Markree Castle is the perfect place for a destination wedding in Ireland. The privacy of up to 170 wedding guests is ensured by the extensive estate and the castle’s countryside location.

Our wedding packages include exclusive use of Markree Castle, a stunning setting with mature trees, a rose garden and grounds along the river Unshin for unforgettable photographs; a personal planner to help and advise you on every aspect of your day, red carpet arrival, reception drinks and canapés, five-course meal with wine and evening food.

Markree is also available for civil ceremonies and partnerships, which take place in the original family chapel. Couples also regularly choose the chapel at Markree for blessings.
