About Hillsborough Castle
Hillsborough Castle & Gardens is the official residence of the Royal Family in Northern Ireland and, throughout the years, has played host to monarchs, minsters, presidents and princesses.
It’s our privilege to offer you this elegant Georgian home along with its stunning 100 acres of landscaped gardens as the backdrop for your unforgettable wedding day. Elegant, yet relaxed. Graceful and intimate – it’s a magical venue located just 20 minutes from Belfast.
The opulent state rooms and formal gardens are available throughout the year and provide a perfect backdrop for both intimate and large-scale wedding celebrations.
• A personal service from a senior member of our events team, supporting you in every aspect of your booking - before, during and after your special day.
• Complete exclusivity of the venue - we want to give you our full attention and dedication.
• Use of Hillsborough Castle’s banqueting tables and chairs (castle events only)
• Wardens to assist on the day with guest car parking and security
• Endless photo opportunities! Both the castle and gardens offer a stunning back-drop for your photography
Looking to say your ‘I dos’ here? Our marquee sites are licensed for ceremonies and offer the opportunity to create your own unique wedding space set within the historic backdrop of the castle's historic gardens.
Historic Royal Palaces is the independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. Hosting your wedding at here means you're contributing to the upkeep and protection of this beautiful and important building.
