Among scenic gardens of a 200-acre estate, this Georgian country house hotel sits on the banks of Lough Swilly in the beautiful County of Donegal. Just a few miles from Letterkenny it boasts elegant rooms in individual period styling featuring old world furnishings and en-suite bathrooms. Since 2009, I have photographed several Castle Grove Country House Hotel Weddings and each one has been very a relaxed, intimate affair.
The Castle House was built in 1695 by the Grove family after the original was vanquished in the siege of 1690. It has been a continual icon in Irish history with Castle Grove hosting the introduction of Daniel O’Connell. In 1989, Castle Grove became home to the Sweeney family who proudly transformed it into a luxury four star hotel, while preserving the character and grace of the original house and extensive grounds.
The gardens are fantastic for wedding photography and with the house exclusively yours for your wedding, the drawing rooms and library provide quieter spaces for your guests to relax during the evening. Castle Grove House really is a perfect choice for your wedding thanks to it’s privacy, elegance and warm welcome.
The following are among the top 3 reasons that every wedding at the Castle Grove Country House Hotel is a unique, luxurious and exclusive event:
1 Castle Grove Country House Hotel weddings are always exclusive and with the house completely yours, the drawing rooms and library provide quieter spaces for your wedding guests to relax during the evening.
2 Castle Grove House has extensive grounds which are a fantastic backdrop for photographs of the bride and groom and families.
3 Castle Grove is a fantastic Georgian house which is one of the best wedding venues in Donegal for capturing documentary photographs of the afternoon and evening wedding reception.
