The Setting

Hillsborough Castle is a stunning Georgian Country House and Royal Residence nestled within 96 acres of peaceful woodland, ornamental grounds and meandering waterways; all within 20 minutes of Belfast.

The Vibe

As a working royal residence, Hillsborough Castle has welcomed an array of prestigious guests since it was first built in the late 1700s. Hosting events is their forte and you can relax in the knowledge that you and your guests will receive a royal welcome as you add your own unique story to Hillsborough Castle’s history.

Exchange your vows in one of the Castle’s State Rooms, filled with paintings from the Royal Collection, including Old Masters and works by renowned local artists. Alternatively, hold your wedding amongst ornamental grounds, peaceful woodland, meandering waterways, picturesque glens and trimmed lawns. Elegant gazebos and marquees to suit your wedding can be incorporated into the stunning landscape.

The Throne Room, State Dining Room, Red Room, Lady Grey’s and the State Drawing Room are all licensed for civil weddings and partnership ceremonies; as are weddings held outside in their grounds.
