Planning your Wedding

Weddings at Ballintubber Abbey

Step into a world of history and romance at Ballintubber Abbey, a remarkable treasure founded in 1216 by the King of Connaught, Cathal O’Connor. As one of the oldest surviving abbeys in Ireland, it has stood the test of time and continues to be a beloved destination for couples seeking a truly magical wedding venue.

From the picturesque windows and the romantic walk down the aisle to the beautifully landscaped grounds, it truly is a perfect wedding venue.  The Acoustics from the high ceilings in the Abbey makes it a dream venue for all singers and musicians. 

Ideally located in the Heart of Mayo, this unique, historic ceremony venue is close to so many beautiful hotels in Mayo.  It is also a very popular venue for couples choosing to have their wedding reception in Galway and Sligo also.

  • If the date is later changed or the wedding cancelled please make contact with us and have the booking cancelled. We also request that you put this in writing.

  • Sometimes a number of dates may be ‘pencilled in’ for couples to allow them to liaise with hotels etc. – when a final date is chosen please ensure that any other dates discussed are erased from our diary and left free for other couples.
