You want to elope in Ireland? Not sure where to begin? Pinterest and instagram are showing you the endless beauty that is Ireland, and maybe you’ve never visited..or finding it hard to choose? Well let me help you decide where to elope in Ireland in 2023. But I’ll be honest with you, I’m a little biased because I live in the best place to elope in Ireland.
Legal Elopements at Dunluce Castle
Dunluce Castle is one of the most popular locations in Ireland. With over 300 elopements at Dunluce Castle in 2022, it’s one of the most popular locations to elope in Europe. It’s based on the Causeway Coast of Northern Ireland and is one of the only iconic locations where you can easily get legally married in Northern Ireland. There are a couple of options when it comes to the castle. You can go inside, but truthfully there’s not much to see; and as it’s open to the public, you don’t have privacy. Or you can access the field in front of Dunluce. That’s where you can get the best views for the most perfect photos – and privacy. You also get the legend that is Sean the farmer who will give you access to the little cottage should the weather turn nasty. There is a fee involved, but it’s minimal. It’s also included in some of my all inclusive elopement packages.
Elope in Ireland at Kinbane Castle
Kinbane Castle is another iconic castle. It’s located near the town of Ballycastle, which is a perfect little seaside town to stay in while you’re visiting. It has a host of quirky little Air BnB’s, Irish pubs, great restaurants and smaller hotels.
Kinbane is more suited to the adventurous as it’s a bit of trek down and up the steep steps. But my goodness it’s worth it.
Elope in Ireland at Dunseverick
Dunseverick is another ‘castle’, though I always think that’s a bit of a stretch. There’s very little left, but the surrounding area is particularly beautiful. There are so many options, and Dunseverick is unbelievably perfect for a first look. Imagine seeing the love of your life ready to get married for the first time. Waves crashing and the ruins of an ancient castle in the background. Perfect, right?
