Situated just outside the picturesque village of Ballon, Co Carlow just one hour south of Dublin, is the beautiful Ballykealey House.

Built in the 19th century arising from the marriage proposal of John James Lecky to Sarah Lucia Smith. Built with love; today Ballykealey House offers a picturesque and enchanting venue for couples seeking a unique venue to host their wedding.

Ballykealey House can hold up to 275 people in their ballroom suite. For smaller wedding celebrations there's the magnificent Oak Room with original Tudor architecture and magnificent oak carved panels, as well as the Cobden Suite which both offer something different depending on your numbers.

If it is an outdoor ceremony you have been dreaming of, Ballykealey House has a number of beautiful outdoor options available, including the stunning lawn, fountain, or newly opened barn area.

You can also choose to have your drinks reception in the impressive manor house or, weather permitting in one of their beautiful outdoor locations.

The manor house has 12 individually appointed rooms, 2 garden suites, and 15 self-catering lodges, providing accommodation for up to 105 guests onsite. Ballykealey House also works closely with local accommodation transport suppliers all within 15 minutes of the venue to ensure all of your guests are looked after.

Ballykealey House is available for exclusive use hire, but this is not a requirement to host your wedding.

Myself and my husband got married on the 11th of May in Ballykealey, it was a fairytale from start to finish. The two years leading up to the wedding Angela and Luke and all the staff in reception could not have been more helpful. The grounds and venue itself are absolutely stunning, the food was incredible but the staff are what made our day. Every member of staff made our day incredible. They are so friendly, so helpful and no ask was too big. All our guests can’t compliment them enough. I really can’t recommend this venue enough it was above and beyond all of our expectations and thank you to all the staff who made our day so special.

We had the most incredible day at Ballykealey House. From the first day that we went for a viewing, we knew it was the place for us. The house and grounds are just stunning and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Angela did a phenomenal job of planning every meticulous detail and the day went off without a hitch. We had our ceremony in the barn which is a gorgeously rustic and intimate venue, perfect for our group of 100 guests. The meal was amazing - we were blown away by it at our tasting and it was just as good on the day itself. So many of our guests told us that it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding! The service during the meal was outstanding. Wesley, Bruno and the team were so well-organised and couldn't have done more for us. The day was perfect from start to finish. I really couldn't recommend Ballykealey enough. Thank you for going above and beyond for us!

I can?t recommend Ballykealey enough. Everything from the food, service, decor was just amazing. The staff were so attentive and were so helpful throughout the whole experience. We stayed the night before the wedding and had a meal with family and friends, the food was amazing and it was so lovely to have the house to ourselves. The wedding day went off without an issue. We got married in the barn and it was beautiful. Our guests were really impressed with the food. We got married in November and the house was decorated with huge Christmas trees it was just stunning. As I said I can?t recommend Ballykealey enough.

Our wedding in September was just the most magical day thanks to all the staff at Ballykealey House. From our first viewing of the venue we just knew this was the perfect venue for us. The location and beautiful forest backdrop just blew us away and as for the food….it was the ultimate hit. Every guest commented on how fabulous the food was and they are still talking about it to this day!! Everything from start to finish went so smoothly and we were so relaxed and were able to soak up the most beautiful day. I couldn’t recommend Ballykealey House enough to other couples…if you are looking for a unique venue to share with just your guests, fabulous food, welcoming staff and an incredible atmosphere Ballykealey House is the venue for you. Thank you Ballykealey House for making our day so memorable and magical.

I have tried a few times now to write just how amazing Ballykealey were, but in all honesty words cannot describe how fantastic the entire staff and venue were from start to finish. They were always so incredibly helpful with every single inane questions we had, made sure every whim was entertained and always had a brilliantly relaxed yet efficient approach to the entire process, which helped keep our stress levels low at all times! Couldn't have asked for a better venue.
Honestly, if you're considering book Ballykealey, do. You won't regret it!

The staff in Ballykealey made what could have been a very stressful day, one of joy, love and laughter. We had the best day and this is down, in a large part, to their professionalism and their skill. Listening to their suggestions always led to the best option for us. Their advice on where to get ready, weather reports, timings and food choices were exactly what we needed and we really appreciated them. We didn't have to worry about a thing on the day and the highest compliment that we can pay is that we wouldn't want to do it again, because it couldn't be improved upon. It was the best day. Thank you to everyone!

From the minute we stepped foot inside Ballykealey House, we knew this was the one for us! Angela the wedding coordinator was outstanding and really easy to deal with. Angela and her team were very quick to respond to any emails or queries that we had from the day we originally booked in 2021 to our wedding day in June 2023. On the day itself, everything was a breeze! Unfortunately after weeks of sun, the weather changed that particular morning and we had some rain. Therefore our arrival drinks were inside the bar area, rather than the beautiful gardens. But again, no issues. There was a break in the rain and we managed to get outside to use the beautiful gardens for our photos.

Overall, food was fantastic. Service was fantastic. All of my guests thoroughly enjoyed the venue. One of my friends who got married 5 years ago, could not believe how amazing Ballykealey was and said she would 100% go there if she was getting married again and would be recommending it to everyone she knows now, as will we!

We also had Day 2 down in the Barn and it was everything and more. The rain kept away and we were even pulling out the suncream. We chose the BBQ option and it was perfect!

I can't say enough great things about Ballykealey. It was just the most magical day. Thank you! x

From the moment we viewed Ballykealey we knew this would be our wedding venue. The Manor House and its grounds are simply stunning. There is an onsite barnyard as an indoor ceremony option which is beautiful and you can also have your day two BBQ here which is what we opted for. There are also multiple other outdoor ceremony locations on site. The service, staff, and food were exceptional, we had so many compliments from our guests on all of the above! This is truly a hidden gem and we can't thank Angela and all of staff and Ballykealey enough for giving us the perfect wedding weekend. We cant wait to return for a visit in the near future.

Ballykealey was a dream venue for us. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, lots of options for photos! All equally gorgeous. There's a good range of locations where you can host your ceremony and reception depending on numbers and weather! We had a rainy day in the end and have to say, we wouldn't have had the running of the day any different. The staff are without a doubt the biggest highlight for us, not only were they incredibly accommodating, going above and beyond on every request, but they were such a wonderful presence on the day. Always smiling, looking to help, looking out for the best interest of our guests and myself and my husband. We have had endless complements from our guests on the whole weekend - we had day 2 in the barn and we had an absolute ball! Our family and friends couldn't fault a thing, and neither can we. We cannot recommend Ballykealey enough, they really made the run up and day of so so so special and we will always be grateful to them for everything they did for us. Without any hesitation whatsoever would I recommend Ballykealey House for your wedding!!

Ballykealey was the perfect venue for us form the moment we walked through the door for our first viewing. Although there are so many selling points for this beautiful venue, the staff were exceptional and went above and beyond at every turn especially Angela and Alison who worked closely with us in the day. The food was amazing, the grounds were magnificent for photographs and the accommodation was ideal and reasonably priced. We had the most amazing day and would highly recommend this venue to anyone.

Ballykealey House is an amazing venue with an even more amazing staff. They went above and beyond for us from the very first impromptu viewing, which we asked for after a family 60th birthday celebration, where the food and service were impeccable. Our dealings with all staff during the planning phase were just effortless. Everyone is so friendly and warm and this shone through on our wedding day where we were taken care of like we were one of their own. All my guests were blown away by the quality of food, by the beautiful venue and grounds and by the attentiveness and friendliness of all staff.
If you are looking for a venue that will offer your guests a relaxed country manor experience, with the highest quality food and service, an atmosphere of joy and laughter for your special day, then look no further than Ballykealey House.

We could not have wished for a better venue for our wedding day in October 2022. The staff were exceptional and went above and beyond for our guests. Everyone was so friendly and couldn't be any more helpful. The food was absolutely delicious and all the guests were raving about it! The setting alone is so picturesque and a perfect location for the most amazing photos. Everything was so well organised and ran like clockwork thanks to Angela and the team. They really do put the needs of the guests at the forefront of what they offer as a wedding venue. Last minute changes were facilated without any hassle and they took the stress away from us. We couldn't recommend Ballykealey house more and a huge thanks to everyone who made our day so special!

Excellent Staff. Exceptional Service. Perfect Venue. Made our dreams come through.
From the moment we booked our wedding up to the day of and the next day we received the very best service and support all round.
On a side note the nerves got to me (Bride) pretty bad by the time we sat down for the meal. I was sick and had to step out for a while. The entire staff were so supportive. They made sure our guests were well looked after. When I returned they went above and beyond to make sure I got to enjoy my meal and the rest of the night. Which was SPECTACULAR.

Ballykealy House was our perfect wedding venue! Myself and my husband got married there in August 2022 in an outdoor ceremony and had the most perfect day imaginable. The venue and food are absolutely stunning, but the staff is what makes this place really special. Every member of staff we encountered were incredibly helpful, professional and friendly, and went out of their way to ensure we had the perfect day. They put everyone involved in the wedding at complete ease from the very first interaction and throughout. The venue itself is so gorgeous and they have wonderful decor available - we didn't need to hire any additional items, and the place was perfect. There are so many beautiful locations for the ceremony, drinks receptions and photos, and the barn area is absolutely perfect for a BBQ on Day 2. I'm so glad we got married at Ballykealy House and would highly recommend it.

We could not be happier about our choice of venue for our wedding on the 15th of July 2022. Ballykealey house has so much to offer. There are so many places to have your ceremony and reception in the grounds of Ballykealey house. There is the most beautiful Manor House, the rustic stone barn and a variety of beautiful settings outside such as the fountain, the clearing in the woods and front lawn. It has so much to offer whatever your style. We decided to make the most of the whole venue and had our ceremony in the barn, drinks reception by the fountain, main reception in Manor House and photos throughout the gardens. Our photos are so beautiful with natural backdrops amongst the trees, flowers, garden lights and stone walls and the elegant rooms. The team in Ballykealey were amazing from start to finish. On the day they were exceptional. We were so relaxed as they were confident and in control and also just so friendly and nice people. The ballroom had been renovated between the time of booking and our wedding and was just beautiful.
Our guests were very happy also. Ballykealey house has been a hidden gem. A lot of our guests had never heard of it or been there and were very impressed. The food was exceptional. The rooms and lodges are gorgeous. We were blessed with the weather also. We had one day at Ballykealey and it was the best day. We would highly recommend it to others. Thank you to Angela, Alison and all team. It exceeded all our expectations. We wish you all the best for the future and are excited to return again!!

A truly great venue to host family and friends on one of the most memorable days of your life. Sadly the venue was not available for day-two celebrations as there was another wedding reception being held there the following day, so it would have been the ultimate experience to be able to spend a bit more time at the venue and on the grounds after the big day. Everyone was very happy with the entire day and helpfulness of staff. Very straightforward dealing with staff regarding arrangements, it?s just unfortunate there wasn?t enough accommodation to cater for the +130 guests in attendance on the day. Would recommend to a friend!

Staff were so friendly and helpful especially Cliona, Alison, Tom and evening staff. Food was loved by all of our guests. Ballroom has a fabulous backdrop of the gardens. Ideal setting for pictures.

Ballykealey House is an absolutely amazing wedding venue. From the day we had our showaround to the wedding day everything they did was faultless, professional and friendly.

It was no issue at all to customise many elements of the wedding day - Ballykealey were more than accommodating and Angela always gave us great advice when we were unsure of things.

Angela, Luke, Cliona and all of the staff are just so nice, professional and genuine - many of our guests remarked on this after the wedding.

THE FOOD. We love good food and it was one of the more important things we were looking for when we chose our venue. The food was out of this world.

The location, the venue itself are just stunning. They have a huge outdoor space with massive lawns, gardens and woods which we made full use of for our drinks reception and photos.
The house interior is also amazing, you really have to see it and you will be wowed.

We also found it to be good value when you compare it to other country house venues. They have a few standard packages but we were able to have a bespoke package and swap things in and out to suit our preferences.

We had an amazing day and we have so much to thank Ballykealey House for all their help and for hosting it for us.

From the initial viewing to the actual day it was such an easy and pleasurable process to work with everyone. We couldn't have asked for a better venue to have the ceremony and the reception. The barn was so beautiful and we had the loveliest afternoon having the drinks reception outside, we got so many positive comments about dinner, the quality and taste of the food and the service. Having the venue to ourselves and being able to have everyone stay on site was such a benefit and really added to the atmosphere of the whole wedding. Being able to have all our friends and family together after the past two years in such a welcoming place meant the world to us.

Ballykealy was an amazing venue. The staff were second to none and the food was divine. We had our wedding during covid with 56 guests and the attention to detail by the staff was amazing regardless of covid. We got married in the barn on site and we loved having the whole venue to ourselves. If we had to do it all again I would still choose Ballykealy house.

Ballykealey House was the most opulent exquisite and stunning wedding venue we could havse imagined. The food is michelin standard, the service is friendly yet professional and the gorgeous gardens and secret woodlands make for a spectacular backdrop for a non church wedding. The stunningly beautiful tudor room with high ceilings, coving and chandeliers holds a covid wedding party perfectly and is nothing short of magical. This venue is a hidden gem and matches its owners other gorgeous venue, Kilshane House, in every way. A perfect venue for couples from Wexford, Wicklow, Carlow, Laois and Kilkenny.

"Having looked around at other venues we knew quite quickly that Ballykealey was the perfect fit for us. We were their first wedding since reopening under new management and from the very beginning we were met with professionalism, enthusiasm and a genuine interest in making sure our big day was as we wanted it to be. Angela, the Wedding and Events Manager was super easy to deal with and her wealth of experience really shone through.

Our wedding day went even better than we could have ever imagined! Being able to put our trust in Angela and her team meant that we could relax and enjoy the time with our guests knowing everything was being taken care of. The fantastic staff, the amazing food, the stunning grounds and ballroom, all made our wedding so special for both of us and our guests. We can't thank Balleykealey management and staff enough for making the day everything we wanted it to be and more!" John and Claire
