About Hillsborough Castle

The Square, Hillsborough
Co Down, BT26 6AG

Built in the 1700s, Hillsborough Castle is a historic venue that sits proudly on the edges of Belfast amongst 100 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. For three centuries the palace has welcomed guests from all over the world, so hosting weddings and special events is our forte.

Today, Hillsborough Castle is home to the Royal Family in Ireland and also provides an unforgettable venue for your wedding day. We invite you to add your story to the living history of this significant and beautiful part of Northern Ireland. Rest assured that you and your guests will be treated like royalty, and can enjoy a celebration in a spectacular setting, surrounded by splendid décor and paintings from the Royal Collection.

We offer a range of stunning rooms in which to host your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception; all of which work and flow beautifully together. Enjoy arrival drinks in the striking State Entrance, charming Candlestick Hall or the enchanting State Drawing Room with doors leading out onto a beautiful paved terrace overlooking the gardens. All our rooms are licenced for ceremonies and our majestic Throne Room is ideal for a sit-down wedding breakfast of up to 80 people.

We want to help you create a wedding day that is uniquely yours and we're delighted to offer you the option of exclusivity for all our ground-floor State rooms; giving you the flexibility to personalise your day in a way that suits your vision and aspirations.

For larger weddings, why not take your day outdoors with a marquee setup in the peace and tranquillity of the Castle's stunning landscaped gardens? If you choose to hold an outdoor wedding, marquees and gazebos can be incorporated effortlessly into the landscape to suit your requirements.
