If you want to hire a beautiful 18th Century mansion and its grounds for your wedding venue, look no further than Ballintubbert House in County Laois.
The eight-bedroomed property is available for couples to rent for their wedding, and was once the home of poet laureate C Day Lewis, as well as actors Sebastian Shaw and John Hurt.
More guests can sleep on the grounds by renting the school house or staying in luxury tented accommodation, enabling your friends and family to really enjoy this unique wedding venue.
The house and its grounds are available to make your own, and you can enjoy a breakfast on the patio or picnics in the rose garden at your leisure, making it a fantastic place to extend your celebrations beyond your wedding day.
Indeed, its gardens are as special as the building, dating back to 1850 and having been recently restored to its former glory, along with the manor house itself.
Couples wanting a civil or humanist ceremony can tie even tie the knot in the peaceful setting of Lutyens Garden. Alternatively, there's a Church of Ireland chapel on the grounds, and Ballyadams Catholic Church, which adjoins the gardens, is just one mile away.
After you're pronounced man and wife, you can toast your life together with a Champagne reception outdoors, amidst the beautiful green views.
