The Space at Cloughjordan House
One of the things we love most about Cloughjordan House is just how versatile the venue is – you really can make this place your own! From the wild forest to the rustic woodshed, right up to the stunning, 17th Century ballroom, there’s a space to suit all tastes.
The 17th Century Ballroom is perfect for ceremonies, dancing, or anything you can think of! With high ceilings, sash windows and roaring fire, it’s an atmospheric setting in which to party the night away!
The venue’s sweeping lawn, gorgeous woodland area, or rustic woodshed are also ideal for ceremonies.
For church ceremonies, you can tie the knot locally in Cloughjordan Village, with the reception waiting for you and your guests when you return to the House.
After your ceremony, guests can enjoy cocktails and canapés in the garden with lawn games, or, indoors, in the house’s beautiful sitting rooms.
The Garden Marquee is perfect for your wedding feast, and after the meal you can move through the double doors into the ballroom to get the party started!
