About Thomas Prior Hall

Welcome to the wonderful and unique Thomas Prior Hall. The Thomas Prior Hall is a 19th-century Victorian building which has been beautifully restored to one of Dublin’s best wedding venues. The space is located on the grounds of the Four-star hotel Clayton Hotel Ballsbridge.

Minutes away from the City Centre in the tranquil Ballsbridge, renowned across Ireland for its stunning surroundings, impressive décor and vast space, it is the ideal venue for a Dublin wedding.
