WELCOME TO KILLRUDDERY

WE ARE DELIGHTED TO HOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING CELEBRATIONS AND BRING TO LIFE YOUR SHARED DREAMS.

We pride ourselves on offering unique access to an exceptional heritage mansion and world-renowned gardens – with intimate, surprising venues around the estate for an unforgettable party.

We recognise the enduring strength of teamwork at Killruddery. Our Wedding Team will work closely with you to guide your planning and ensure that this journey is as enjoyable as the day itself.

ICONIC 17TH CENTURY GARDENS IN THE GRAND SIÈCLE TRADITION

Our craft gardeners and grounds staff are dedicated to conserving these 800 acres of biodiversity as a retreat for generations to come. A Killruddery wedding has a decadent rural backdrop, with landscaped views of lawns, groves, flowering woods, a walled garden and a maze.

Our enchanting main parterre has beautiful statues and water features including our twin ponds, known as miroirs d’eaux.

THE WEDDING CEREMONY

‘VOTA VITA MEA’ – ‘MY LIFE IS DEVOTED’

Killruddery House is a magnificent Tudor Revival mansion with an original 17th century foundation.

The Orangery, The Dining Room, The Library and our renovated Grain Store all provide unforgettable settings for a wondrous wedding reception or marriage ceremony. We are HSE registered to hold civil ceremonies as well as Solemniser and Humanist ceremonies or partnership blessings.

Grain store

200 guests 

The Grain Store is Killruddery’s charming 19th century barn conversion in our Horse Yard, the ultimate rustic-chic venue for dinner and dancing. After your marriage ceremony, a pathway leads your guests through our formal gardens to a charming courtyard strung with lights. Through double-height barn doors, surprise your close friends and family with the Grain Store’s characterful open-plan interior.

Killruddery’s long feasting tables offer a simple, bohemian style but, alternatively, we can hire tables in-the-round with beautiful linen coverings for a romantic, fine-dining extravaganza.

The orangery

180 guests 

The Orangery, a Victorian conservatory of flaunting beauty, offers magical solemnity for a ceremony or an extraordinary space for a celebration drinks and canapes. Inspired by the Renaissance gardens of Italy, sculptures from our marble statuary lend a classical, romantic style.

The library

75 guests 

In the heart of the house, The Library is opulently decorated in the Carolean style with an old Hollywood touch. The rich, teal-green walls complement the lustrous dark wood chimney-piece and overmantel. Host a beautiful drinks reception with views across the Long Ponds.

The drawing room

70 guests 

Our beautiful, bright Drawing Room is a hidden treasure at Killruddery. The lavish neoclassical interior boasts magnificent scagliola pillars, ceiling stucco plasterwork and walls lined with gold brocade silk panels.

The dining room

18 guests 

Connected to The Orangery, our formal Dining Room is ideal for small-party celebration drinks or private dining for up to eighteen guests. The room boasts a stunning stucco ceiling and tall windows that look out to a meditative vista across our Long Ponds to an ornate, sparkling fountain.

Shoot room

 

Another secret nook at Killruddery, the Shoot Room is one of our restored stables in the Horse Yard – beside the Grain Store. With its imposing fireplace and original wood floor and beams, this room can be a further extension to your celebrations for wedding games and activities.

FROM KILLRUDDERY, WITH LOVE.

Our Head Chef Rafal Lorys has created exquisite wedding menu options with Killruddery’s own fine ingredients for you to choose from.

THE WEDDING PARTY

Once the ceremony and dining has finished, we can get the party started! The Grain Store can be arranged to offer a one-of-a-kind dancing space, revealed after the final course. Even open the doors and allow the party to spill into the open-air, where wood firepits burn bright and dancing continues under the stars.
