Irish country weddings have their own unique charm. Ashley Park House is certainly one of the most impressive wedding venues in Tipperary. You can experience the real heart and feel of the country while having a luxurious experience and some of the best food I have tried in Ireland!
Location & Layout
Located beside Nenagh on a beautiful 76-acre estate on the edge of Lough Ourna. It’s the perfect romantic setting for your big day. There is a woodlands area, a walled garden and a beautiful lake with a pier. Being a family-run venue, Ashley Park House feels incredibly warm. No request is too small or too difficult for Margaret, the main wedding coordinator. You can have your ceremony on site, too. There is a an amazing structure with glass walls overlooking the lake. This way you can have your ceremony with a view while being sheltered from rain and wind!
The house itself is a beautiful period building. There are two large drawing rooms for your drinks reception and spacious bedrooms upstairs. The long colonial-style veranda is where you can drink champagne on a summer’s day. Ashley Park House is perfect for both intimate and large weddings.
The vintage drawing room seats up to 70 people, while the pavilion can accommodate 300 guests. Whatever the size, you’ll have exclusive use of the whole estate for your big day.
The Vibe at Ashley Park House
Perfect for a relaxed yet elegant wedding, Ashley Park House has a true family feel to it. Margaret and her team will make you feel right at home and help you create your wedding as personal as you like. The drawing rooms are full of cozy sofas, vintage crockery and quirky elements, bound to wow your guests. The pavilion is impressive and elegant, with wooden floors, fairy lights and floral chandeliers.
The grounds of the estate hold even more gems – gorgeous views over the lake, romantic woodland areas and a delightful walled garden. It really feels like like the place has some old world charm to it, especially if you meet the resident peacocks!
Photo Opportunities at Ashley Park House
With 76 acres of land, you’ll definitely find some amazing photo spots. My personal favourite is the pier coming out into Lough Ourna. The views over the still water are incredible. The path leads through the woods into a charming walled garden. There is a summer pavilion and a greenhouse for truly Wes Anderson-inspired shots. And then there is, of course, the house itself with its unique veranda and charming green shutters. A romantic place that’s hard to beat!
