Located just outside Sligo Town in the village of Collooney Markree Castle is an authentic, relaxing and uniquely charming wedding venue. I have photographed several fantastic Markree Castle weddings over the years and it is always a thrill to return there and drive through the gates and down that long sweeping driveway to the Castle itself.
Markree Castle has now been purchased by the Corscadden family and is the fourth Castle Hotel in Ireland to be owned and run by the Corscadden family. Previously Markree was the home of the Cooper family for over 370 years and will continue to be loved and cherished by it’s new owners.
The following are among the top 3 reasons that Markree Castle weddings are always unique, luxurious and exclusive events:
1 The grounds of the Castle and particularly the drive in is one of the best in Ireland with a grand sweeping view flanked by beautiful large trees slowly giving way to a view of the Castle itself.
2 The interior of the castle is simply stunning and the grand staircase is a great space in which to hold your wedding speeches.
3 Your gourmet five course dinner is served in the Grand Golden Ballroom, which can seat up to 150 guests and following dinner, guests return to the Drawing Rooms on the ground floor to dance the night away.
