Your Dream Wedding Awaits At Butler House And Gardens

Your dream wedding awaits at Butler House & Garden, a bespoke small wedding venue in Kilkenny.

The historic house and garden provide the perfect romantic backdrop for your wedding! With Ivy adorned walls during the autumn, and the garden in full bloom during the summer months, it is a venue for all seasons.

We have created truly unique weddings in the past, including barefoot humanist ceremonies on the lawn, evening and weekend civil ceremonies for as little as four guests, to a banquet for 60 guests. We can adapt our weddings to suit you whether you have five guests or fifty, and we will tailor our packages to suit your needs.

Here at Butler House you have a choice of three magnificent rooms, with plasterwork ceilings and large bow windows overlooking our Georgian Walled Garden and Kilkenny Castle. Our rooms are adorned with artwork from the prestigious Basil Goulding Collection, and the house itself is steeped in history, as it is the former Dower House of Kilkenny Castle, and is located on the castle’s original grounds.

Our Wedding Packages include a range of options from full formal dining, to a more relaxed buffet style setting, with prices starting from €59 per person.

We also offer exclusive use of the entire property for 24 hours, including accommodation and a ‘Second Day Event’ such as Afternoon Tea, or a BBQ in our beautiful Garden.

What Our Past Couples Have Said…

“It was one of the best days of our life and it’s all thanks to the brilliant staff and surroundings of Butler House… everyone said to us how brilliant and unique our wedding was. I honestly couldn’t recommend it more for a wedding.”

“I recently got married here and my god what an amazing day. The staff at Butler House made everything perfect and worked tirelessly to ensure the day went off without a hitch. I’ve never known such an accommodating bunch and can’t thank them enough. The house itself is truly special; while it looks similar to many of the old world buildings in town when viewed from the street, the other side reveals its full glory as a stately house, boasting a beautiful garden and a view of Kilkenny castle.”
