Markree Castle is an extraordinary venue - an authentic and historic Irish Castle located in the north-west of Ireland on the route of the world-famous Wild Atlantic Way. Recently reopened after extensive renovations, now is the time to discover a fairytale of elegance and service in a majestic part of Ireland. Markree Castle was purchased by renowned family of Irish hoteliers, The Corscaddens, and has been lovingly and extensively renovated to the highest standards. It now joins the family’s Romantic Castles of Ireland hotel and venue portfolio. The family’s 4th luxurious Castle venue, Markree Castle reopened in March 2017. Extensive renovations have been completed to ensure the comfort of guests and the future of the castle. At every stage of the renovation process, the character and history of Markree has been protected and restored. The considered redecoration of the castle has allowed the castle to reclaim its position as one of the finest historic homes in Ireland.

We had a unique bank holiday weekend break in this beautiful place. Its a stunning place to stay. It is mainly booked out for weddings but at this time with limited weddings, you may be lucky to get a booking. Food and service excellent. Rooms amazing and so many rooms to relax in. The gardens are stunning , where you can meet, the Irish wolfhound Roisin. Highly recommend it.

We had our Wedding at the beautiful Markree Castle on the 30th December 2020 , and we could not find one fault with the whole experience. We will start off by mentioning Deirdre and Nicholas the wedding co-ordinators , who helped out on every aspect to make our Wedding Day the day and night it was , they were always on hand to answer any questions we had and helped us through every step of the way , planning a wedding from Hong Kong was made so much easier with their help and expertise , they are excellent at what they do and a pleasure to deal with . Onto Markree Castle....It's the most amazing castle with the most spectacular gardens and it was an incredible backdrop for all our photos. When we came through the gates the day of our wedding the gardens were frosted over and there was a mist on the river which made it all so much more spectacular. We were lucky enough to have our wedding at all , with the current Covid-19 restrictions and even though we had only a small gathering it really felt like the Castle was full with our guests at all times. The staff were so friendly and pleasant and a special mention to the bar man , he was excellent . The food was top class. We had requests from some our guests who were vegan and vegetarian and nothing was too much for the chef to do for them. Our guests were all saying how good their dinners were. The Guinness was also excellent, a rare thing at a wedding , but the men are still raving about how good their pints were. We could not recommend Markree Castle enough to anyone who will ever ask us. The venue, the food, the staff are all top class and when it is all tied in together its makes it the most amazing experience from beginning to end. A day we will never ever forget . Thank you all so much . Tiana and Ronan

The whole team at Markree Castle including of course the wonderful Deirdre and Nicholas, could not have been more helpful in the lead up to the big day (including reorganizing due to Covid-19 restrictions), and on the day itself. The venue itself is like something out of a fairytale that is exclusively yours, with beautiful rooms for your guests, gorgeous grounds to explore and a beautiful area to have a relaxing morning getting ready. We even ended up with an extra bridesmaid, the gorgeous Roisin (an Irish wolfhound) who made sure our morning was filled with laughter and was not camera shy. Markree also have a chapel onsite that you can get married in that is not only beautiful, but it also means you don’t even have to leave the venue for the wedding ceremony. All of our guests commented on how lovely all the team were, what excellent service they provided, the amazing food, rooms and venue. We can’t thank the team enough for such a magical day and can’t wait to go back to visit Markree. We could not be happier with our choice of wedding venue & wouldn’t change a thing!

We had our dream wedding at the amazing Markree Castle back in September and I could not find fault with the whole experience. It's the most stunning castle - on the inside and outside - and it was the perfect backdrop for photos. We were lucky enough to have our ceremony outside in the gardens and it was so beautiful. I walked from the potting shed (this is a gorgeous apartment attached to the castle) to the top of the aisle on a red carpet and the finishing touches to the decor really made the whole setting magical. It felt like we were abroad! The food was top class. We had requests for vegan and vegetarian meals and nothing was too much for the chef. Everyone is still talking about how good the beef was! And OMG the desserts were out of this world!! I'm booking to go back for an evening meal over Christmas just to enjoy some of Lee's creations again. The day was so relaxed and the staff were so lovely and friendly. Deirdre and Nicholas were amazing to deal with. Deirdre was always on hand to answer my questions in the lead up to the day and on the day itself and she assured me everything was going to work out despite there being so much uncertainty around weddings. She was right and we had the best day of our lives. Thanks to everyone at Markree Castle. I could not recommend this dream castle enough! AMAZING venue, AMAZING value for money, AMAZING food, AMAZING staff and an all-round magical experience from start to finish. I wish we could do it all again!
