Marco Pierre White in Donnybrook is one of my favourite restaurant venues in Dublin. With renowned food, a beautiful historic dining room and a charming courtyard it was the perfect spot for Sarah and Michael’s international wedding.
Dublin holds a special place in Sarah’s heart. It’s where she got a jump start in her career, after moving here from the States, and it’s also where she met Michael. They love their home, so there was no question of where to celebrate their wedding. Sarah is very close to her family and has some lifelong friends back in the US. The couple decided to make it easier for all the international guests and have their wedding in Dublin. Sarah and Michael had an emotional first look in St Stephen’s Green and a beautiful ceremony in stunning Trinity College Chapel. After the ceremony the whole party made their way to Marco Pierre White in Donnybrook for an evening of celebrations.
Marco Pierre White Donnybrook: Beautiful Restaurant Wedding in Dublin
Marco Pierre White in Donnybrook is within easy access from Dublin city centre, just 15 minutes by car or bus from Nassau Street. As you enter through wrought-iron gates you find yourself in a sun-lit courtyard, perfect for a drinks reception. There are gas heaters in case of a colder day and several covered areas if the weather decides to turn sour.
There are 3 main indoor spaces in Marco Pierre White: the Garden Room, the Library Room and the historic dining room. The Garden Room seats from 30 to 60 people for a private party, and acts as a bar for any larger events. The Library Room is a charming intimate space for up to 20 guests. For large weddings the Library Room is reserved as a private space for the bride and groom to have some alone time. Trust me, after a full day around friends you’ll appreciate a bit of peace and quiet, even if just for a couple of minutes!
The dining room is the most popular option for wedding celebrations. It seats up to 160 guests and accommodates both ceremonies and dinners. The atmosphere is chic, urban and swank. It exudes traditional old-school charm but there is nothing old-school about the amazing contemporary menu! The historic dining room seats up to 160 guests. It boasts some amazing decor elements of antique finds from all over the world with a reclaimed wooden floor rescued from an old church in Kerry. I particularly love the stained glass sky-light letting in amazing light, combined with colourful uplighting.
