Dublin, with its wide range of venues, and amazing food culture, is a fabulous place for a wedding. The range of venues is extensive, and well able to suit all tastes. Many popular event venues are located in the city centre, also known as D2 to your postman. However, there are other popular sites both in the city and just outside. Check out the exciting and popular area known as Ra-Ra-Ra in D6 - Ranelagh, Rathmines and Rathgar. All are very accessible from the Dublin airport if you have visitors from outside the city to consider.
If you are planning a Dublin wedding consider some of the latest wedding trends when you start your hunt. Remember -- ‘having fun’ is back in style. Ditch the serious traditional wedding and focus on something craic on your big day. Get your guests in on the action with a themed wedding and ask them to dress up. With all the unique wedding venues in the city, it won’t be hard to create a smashing event that will leave them talking. Historic ruins, orangeries or garden settings will all help set the mood.
Consider an elegant traditional wedding in the historic Royal College of Surgeons. You can even go traditional gothic in the 12th Century Medieval Crypt under Christ Church Cathedral. Have an intimate small wedding by candlelight in this highly atmospheric and romantic place.
Or perhaps you want a more intimate setting? Check out one of the cheaper restaurants on Fade Street. There are more unexpected and unique venues on offer, as well. The Gibson Hotel prides itself on offering ‘the urban wedding you’ve never dreamed of’ - why not check it out? If you want to take your wedding party onto the water, consider the boats that sail the canal between the bridges on Baggot Street and Leeson Street.
You might also hire one of the city’s many Georigian mansions, or, if you want to take the wedding outside town, investigate the area’s country mansions. You could contemplate a castle wedding, as well. The selection of castles is surprisingly plentiful including, Luttrellstown Castle near the city limits, or Ardgillan Castle, with views that overlook the North Sea - a sure place for some dramatic wedding photos.

Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
