A Bohemian style wedding in an idyllic location in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere – That is what Ballybeg is all about.

Yes Ballybeg is different to any other wedding venue and yes everyone who comes to Ballybeg for weddings leave happy, contented and suitably replenished in both mind and body!

With five years experience and more than 200 weddings later, we have perfected the winning formula.

Ballybeg is your venue for your entire stay and it is your wishes and your own special requirements that will be looked after by our friendly and efficient staff.

Grouse Lodge, on the other side of Ballybeg Hill is the most romantic, isolated “Hideaway” you will have ever seen! This unique retreat is also yours and may be used again to suit your own particular requirements.

Ballybeg does not promote its wedding venue at any wedding fairs or in any promotional magazines. Ballybeg is promoted by “Word of mouth” by the couples and their guests.

Every wedding is very special to us all at Ballybeg. Our philosophy is “We are only as good as our last wedding” and our last wedding must be at least as good as all the others!

To help with the big economic downturn that has afflicted us all over the last couple of years, Ballybeg has negotiated with all it’s service suppliers and has come up with an unbeatable “Mid week Special Offer”.

This mid week special as outlined on our website www.ballybeg.ie is our genuine effort to significantly help couples who would love to get married at Ballybeg but like many others have been affected by the downturn in the economy.

We had the most incredible time at our wedding at Ballybeg House back in March 2019. From our first visit to the venue and Paddy's tour around the grounds, we knew this was where we wanted to get married. For the wedding weekend itself, I have to say that from the moment we arrived to the point of leaving, we were bowled over by the venue and the staff. Ballybeg House is an extremely professional setup. Thank you to the O'Toole family. Thanks to Tee for all the help and organisation. She did a superb job. Thank you Pauline and the catering team. The food was out of this world all weekend. Don't worry about the lack of a tasting session. We are still getting compliments from guests about how good the food was. The staff were faultless and our guests were so well looked after. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. If you are thinking of getting married at Ballybeg House, you will not be disappointed. It is an amazing place to celebrate with your nearest and dearest. We really hope someone invites us back for a wedding sometime!

My husband and I loved this venue from the moment we seen it. Its so unique and the grounds are maintained to perfection. Its truly a magical place that people wont forget. The shebeen unfortunately was too smokey on the 2nd day, a guest with asthma could not sit inside. I noticed it the second I walked in & commented but the staff said it was part of the charm. It was definitely too smokey, myself and 2 other people had sore throat from it and eventually 1 of the fires was put out. I think perhaps the chimney needed to be cleaned. I would love another opportunity to celebrate at Ballybeg but I don't plan on getting married again.

Absolutely perfect, easiest decision to go with the venue, the ceremony room is a highlight, however with forest pods, hot tubs, out door shower & a hidden pub BallyBeg has everything. It is a must see venue & every single person at our wedding was blown away by it. it’s home away from home for the perfect day. I would recommend it to anyone, the owner & all the staff are just super.

Such a great venue. Guests were still raving about the place a week later, including how comfy the pods were. We really wanted and loved the laid back, fun atmosphere. It was so nice to have our dogs there with us as well. The food was excellent and the staff were so lovely, the day of the wedding and throughout the rest of the weekend. We couldn't have been happier.

Ballybeg house is an amazing wedding venue. From the beginning when we met Paddy the owner, we fell in love with ballybeg. It had everything we wanted for our wedding. Food was spectacular by Mollys larder, Pauline was fantastic to deal with. Tee our wedding planner is exceptional at her job. Nothing was a big ask. Our wedding wknd was so much fun and it was so nice to treat all our family and friends to a weekend of celebrating our wedding. Top marks all round. Can't recommend ballybeg house enough.. Kind regards the new Mr & Mrs George Cooney.. Xxx

My husband and I enjoyed our wedding day at Ballybeg House in Wicklow immensely! The venue is out of this world, and it was perfect for what we wanted - a relaxed country wedding with the ability to exclusively have the venue to ourselves for 3 whole days!!! I am from Australia, so it made sense for us to have our celebration spread over several days to enjoy catching up with those who traveled so far for even longer. The ceremony room was so unique and special. The House and gardens were simply stunning and the whole atmosphere made for the most fun and relaxed event! The marquee was set out so beautifully and was cosy and intimate for all our guests. All the accommodation (the House, Dairy,Grouse Lodge and the Pods) were all fabulous and everyone loved their stay and complimented it for being very comfortable. The food was delish, and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed it! Would highly recommend Molly's Larder for anyone needing catering!!! Tee from Pairs and Peaches, the wedding planner, was an absolute delight to work with! She made the whole planning process an absolute breeze. From taking care of all the decorations, and also all of the flowers - everything was absolutely perfect and made everything soooo stress free for us. I wish we could do it all over again!

We had our Wedding in Ballybeg in July. We both fell in love with this place when we initially viewed it a couple of years back and knew it was going to be the place we got married. Our time there was exactly what we hoped it would be...and SO much more!!! Tee (wedding planner) was an absolute god send. I can't say enough good things about her. On the day itself she was behind the scenes doing everything and making sure everything was running smooth. I didn't have to think about anything other than relaxing and enjoying our day. I would do it all again in a heartbeat and wouldn't change a thing.

Ballybeg is a fairytale! We knew the instant we pulled into the drive that this place was special. Each time we went to visit, Ballybeg became better and better - it started to feel like home, no joke. From the owner to the coordinator, to the caterer, to the house staff, all of them are there for you guys and your guests. There were so many moments during our day when I realized things had been taken care of without me even knowing. We even had a special moment where everyone was gathered for dinner and it was super quiet. We were taking in the view when a lovely staff member came and brought us drinks and the canapes we hadn't had a chance to try... that quiet moment with my new husband was my favorite moment of the day! We had a smallish wedding (around 70 people), and our friends and family said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. On the day, we had a few hiccups, but the guests never knew - in fact, they said it was the best wedding they had ever been to! You could tell that they were truly enjoying themselves, which made us so so happy. Would we do it all over again? 1000% yes!!! Would we recommend them? Without one, single doubt. You won't regret it!! :D

Ballybeg House was an incredible venue! Our guests who flew in from Canada, USA, UK, India and Australia were blown away by the beauty of it all. The lush green fields, the cozy accommodations and the Irish hospitality made the venue a little piece of heaven. Planning a 3 day Indian-Irish wedding in Ireland from two cities (Toronto & Vancouver) in Canada is no easy feat, but the Ballybeg House team made the whole process a breeze. Paddy and his team on the ground, Tee of Pairs & Peaches, Ingrid & Pauline and their staff from Molly's Larder all came together to make our weekend a dream - no ask was too much and even the things we might not have considered had already been planned for. They took our vision, and made it their own - which turned out to be even better than we could have imagined. Our guests have many fond memories of our lovely wedding weekend and speak of the warm hospitality they enjoyed - the Ballybeg House team truly made us all feel like family and not just wedding guests. Thank you all once again for everything.

We absolutely loved organising our wedding with Ballybeg House. Everything was easy and relaxed, yet they were all so professional. The quality of the venue, service, and rooms was exceptional. We loved the weekend we spent there and if we could do it all again tomorrow we would. Being able to stay for a few days made all the difference. Paddy, Tee, Mick Patrick, Pauline and all are amazing people. We went for all of their recommendations and would recommend others do too - their suppliers, taxi providers, using Tee as our planner, Mollys Larder caterers (we have been told by many the food was some of the best wedding food people have ever eaten), decorations etc. Just put your trust in the Ballybeg crew and you will have the best wedding!

My daughter got married there two years ago and I cannot recommend it enough. I am not surprised that they don’t have to advertise at fairs etc. Everything about the place is magical. The food was really a very high first class restaurant standard. Tee The wedding planner was worth her weight in gold and just blended in like one of the guests. Nothing was too much trouble for Patrick or any of the staff things just seemed to get done you were left to yourselves and yet the fires were kept lighting candles burning etc. you really have to experience this venue and then no other wedding will ever be the same again.
