Headfort Arms Hotel - a perfect  wedding venue

The Gold Medal Award Winning Headfort Arms has been owned by the Duff family for 40 years now and it continues to thrive in these challenging times as a special time-honoured venue for your wedding.
Tradition aside, the hotel offers a unique atmosphere of Irish hospitality, warm family spirit and authentic cuisine from its long standing kitchen team, who have ensured that the Headfort is consistently recommended by Ireland’s leading food critics and guidebooks.

 The Hotel always surprises visitors who come through the 200 year old entrance to a wonderful self-contained wedding suite and its best kept secret, the Headfort Gardens. The magnificent Kenlis Suite offers a spacious reception foyer, impressive Georgian-style ballroom with high ceilings, crystal chandeliers and lots of natural light. The ballroom looks over the conservatory and gardens, which have been re-landscaped this year and include lovely features such as a portico, tea house and French swing – providing a perfect backdrop for wedding photography.

Guests can enjoy relaxing comfort in the sanctuary of the Hotel's bespoke 45 bedrooms, which offer a blend of old and new world on every encounter.
