In the heart of the Cooley Peninsula lies a beautiful secret. A secret unknown for ten years but which has stood for eight centuries. A secret that has served thousands of families over the years and is now re-emerging to serve many families in the future. 

The Old Mill, Riverstown. A fully working mill for 600 years, this exquisite building is now available for weddings. If you’re looking for somewhere truly unique that you, your fiance, family and friends will never forget; celebrate with us at The Old Mill.

The building has many of the features from when it operated as a working mill and a medieval interior that will make you think you’re on the set of Game Of Thrones. The grounds sit within mature woodland, with an idyllic stream going past the mill. They will produce the most amazing photographs.

Catering for up to 150 people, The Old Mill can host your civil ceremony as well as the reception. We have a range of first class suppliers to give you a wedding you haven’t even dreamt of yet.

The Old Mill is run by Carlingford Brewing Company and is adjacent to its brewery and The Táin Taproom. The Taproom can also be used as part of your reception and you can even brew your own beer!

If you want a memorable wedding that your family and friends will talk about for years, call Des on +353833284040 to arrange a viewing.

Wow what a great place.. Myself and my partner Joe got married at the Mill on the 28th May and it was perfect. Des and all his team having been amazing throughout the process of organising the wedding and on the day it couldn't have gone better. Everyone still keeps saying what a great place, great Venue and mostly how wonderful the staff were. We live in Manchester but luckily for us our family live in Ireland so we visit regularly and will keep visiting the brewery just so we can keep experiencing the atmosphere of the place and of course the ale. Again massive thanks to Des and the team for such a wonderful wedding day and looking after us the next day in the brewery for more drink and pizzas.

If you are visiting the Cooley area or considering venues for a wedding / special event, I would highly recommend meeting with Des Goldrick of Carlingford Brewing Company. This time last year we made one of the best decisions for our Wedding and scheduled a visit of the Old Mill in Riverstown – part of Carlingford Brewing Company. From the minute we walked in the door, we knew we had found our venue – we contacted Des that day to get everything booked and scheduled the event for 8 short months later. There was no rushing to get everything sorted for our big day as Des and the team were on hand to help with everything we needed. Coming up to the wedding we were lucky to have several visits at the venue and every time we did, there was some new feature, old stone work or unique part of the building to discover. It really amazed us how gorgeous and stunning the place is – and how incredible it turned out on the day. It was absolutely perfect for our number of guests, so intimate and everyone commented on the venue! I can honestly say we didn’t have to worry about a thing the day of the Wedding, the staff were brilliant – so well organised and everything went by seamlessly. We had a beautiful day and stunning backdrop for our photos – it really is an amazing venue. If you are lucky enough to get a sunny day, there are lovely grounds to explore. Our guests sat outside enjoying the sunshine and the relaxed atmosphere around the Taprooms. We had some lovely afternoon tea on offer and samples of the various craft beers which are created at Carlingford Brewing Company – which was really well received by our guests as it was something out of the ordinary. On our visits to the area we would often stop by the Taprooms for food and a few drinks. Their daytime menu during the summer has something for everyone – the meatballs are a particular favourite of ours. The pizza nights are also highly enjoyable, you can just relax, enjoy performances from local musicians and take in the lovely surroundings and excellent pizzas! I would urge everyone to go out and view the Old Mill and Taprooms – we can’t speak highly enough about our experience and can’t thank Des & the team for making it a truly unforgettable day.
