Dublin in Ireland is one of those amazing historic cities that also happens to have a vibrant, modern vibe. The city itself has been around since the 9th century, but these days you’ll find medieval castles and cathedrals rubbing shoulders with handsome Georgian architecture from the 1700s and plenty of eye-catching spots that have developed as the tastes of the citizens became more eclectic and refined in modern times.
Have you been entertaining the idea of renting a stretch tent in Ireland to host an outdoor wedding? Some may call you brave (it does tend to drizzle a fair amount around the Emerald Isle, after all!), but if you do strike it lucky with the weather, there is nothing prettier than a sunny day in Ireland. You’ll also be spoiled for choice where al fresco destinations are concerned.
Here are a few of our favourite outdoor wedding destinations in and around Dublin, Ireland:
Royal Hospital Kilmainham
The Royal Hospital Kilmainham is located very close to Dublin CBD and is just the ticket if you want to go for a ‘wow’ factor. It’s manicured gardens are to die for, and you can host up to 1100 people if you need to. They only host a few weddings per year, so it’s best to early.
Sandymount Hotel has one of the biggest outdoor terraces in Dublin. It can hold up to 250 guests and there are private landscaped gardens that may be roped in for the festivities as well.
DTwo is open all year round and happens to serve some of the best BBQ in Dublin. In summer it is a huge beer garden that can host up to 800 guests. It’s also a great option for laid-back summertime wedding that celebrates Dublin’s inner-city grit.
GOOD TO KNOW: The Irish Government is now allowing couples to use certain National Monuments and buildings for their wedding ceremony! This includes the likes of The Casino at Marino in Dublin, Castletown House in Kildare, Barryscourt Castle in Cork, as well as Desmond Hall in Limerick.
