5 Beautiful Beach Wedding Venues in Ireland

We love beach weddings, but you don't have to take a long plane journey to have a seaside ceremony, there are plenty of wedding venues in Ireland that mean you can get married overlooking the sea. The beach is the ideal setting for a wedding, but while Ireland doesn't always have beach weather you can still get married with a view of the waves.

Check out these Irish coastal wedding venues that are perfect for your big day!

Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, Clonakilty, County Cork

This beautiful wedding venue is set atop a cliff with sea views and trails leading to a beautiful beach. Have your ceremony with a sea view - one of the best in Ireland - and then take to the sand for your wedding photographs (as long as the weather allows it). The stunning amphitheatre is the perfect spot to exchange your vows and has panoramic views out to the Atlantic Ocean. This venue has it all – great views, relaxing surroundings and amazing food.

Inishbofin House Hotel, Inishbofin Island, County Galway

Set in the wild splendour of Connemara, this beach venue has something special. The 'Island of the White Cow' is home to the Inishbofin House Hotel that's nestled into the peaceful harbour looking out to the Atlantic ocean. Get married in the island's church and then enjoy your reception on the sun terrace or by the beach – and you can always relax before the big day in the Marine Spa!

Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links, County Dublin

The Velvet Strand in Portmarnock is one of Dublin's most beautiful beaches and this hotel looks out to the golden sands. The hotel was originally part of the famous Jameson family's estate (yes of Jameson Irish Whiskey fame) and it's now a 138 room hotel. There's event the chance to practice your swing on the golf course – or just enjoy the 19th hole!

Mulranny Park Hotel, County Mayo

Perched on a hillside with views of Clew Bay and its 365 islands, the Mulranny Park Hotel is one of the most perfect beach wedding venues in Ireland. Down the Victorian causeway to the miles of golden sand you can enjoy the sea air and wild Atlantic sea. But should the weather turn cold you can always get married in the hotel overlooking the sand and sea.

Rathmullan House, County Donegal

On the banks of Lough Swilly that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean into County Donegal, Rathmullan House is just a few steps away from a two-mile golden beach. You can hire out the whole house, or just the dining room for your wedding and dine on quality, locally sourced food. Add an extra romantic angle with a trek on horseback, courtesy of the local riding stables.
