Ardmore House, built in the 1800s, has recently undergone extensive restoration, two of the reception rooms have been returned to their former excellence and are available for intimate wedding ceremonies for a capacity of 40 people.

There are also various possibilities for outdoor ceremonies during the summer, from the Rose Garden to the lawn in front of O'Reilly Hall. The possibilities are endless.


After your ceremony, your reception drinks can be accommodated in the drawing-room of Ardmore House or weather permitting, on the front lawn overlooking the iconic UCD lake. With floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake, the Club Restaurant is a beautiful venue for your wedding reception. Using local seasonal ingredients, the dishes will leave a lasting impression on your guests.
