If you are looking for a memorable, magical, unique location to get married- this is the spot! We had a destination wedding here all the way from Chicago. While planning a wedding virtually can be a bit intimidating, the team at Kippure Estate truly can gather who you are and what you want all through email. Everyone we dealt with... More

Hi Aine and Dave, thanks so much for your great review! It’s always very nice to hear from a couple that they enjoyed working with me from the day they booked until the wedding day, because that can be up to 2 years or more!

We held our recent wedding at Kippure Estate; from start to finish they're a real pleasure outfit to work with. We organised a lot of it from overseas but the communication was top notch.

Hi Pete and Jess, I’m extra happy to read your great review…as you mentioned, we had to plan a lot of your wedding from a distance, so I probably didn’t get to personally know you as much as I do some couples.

We have just returned from Kippure having attended a friends wedding. The location is stunning, the staff were very helpful and the food was perfect, we stayed in a really comfortable house (number 6) where the beds were to comfortable. I would highly reccomend Kippure to anyone considering a wedding with a twist.

As a wedding venue, this might be great when the weather is good, but unfortunately that did not happen. The fact that the house had burned down did not help the overall appearance of the place in the rain. In terms of the food, I have nothing bad to say, but the standard of the accommodation is very poor for... More

Stayed in Kippure with family and friends for a recent wedding.
