The Setting

Hillsborough Castle is a stunning Georgian Country House and Royal Residence nestled within 100 acres of peaceful woodland, ornamental grounds and meandering waterways; all within 20 minutes of Belfast.

The Vibe

As a working royal residence, Hillsborough Castle and Gardens has welcomed an array of prestigious guests since it was first built in the late 1700s; including Eleanor Roosevelt, Benjamin Franklin, the Crown Prince of Japan and Princess Diana. Hosting events is their forte and you can relax in the knowledge that you and your guests will be treated like royalty as you add your own unique story to its history.

The castle’s State Rooms are opulently dressed to impress and are adorned with an impressive collection of paintings from the Royal Collection. These stunning interiors are available for evening ceremonies, dinners and receptions all year round and are ideal for intimate drinks receptions and dinners.

Alternatively, two stunning marquee sites situated within the beautiful formal gardens are both licensed for ceremonies and are available from morning until night. Marquees and gazebos can be incorporated effortlessly into the landscape and offer the opportunity to create your own dream wedding space set within the historic gardens of the castle.
