Carlingford is situated to the south of Carlingford Lough, a fjord flanked by the sweeping Mourne and Cooley mountains. It’s a truly spectacular sight.  Steeped in history, folklore and legends such as Queen Méabh, the Brown Bull of Cooley and Cuchulainn himself, you are surrounded by mystique and magic in this fairytale setting.

The cobbled village of Carlingford offers myriad backdrops for your wedding photographs including King John’s Castle, Carlingford Abbey and, a particular favourite with couples, pulling pints in PJ O’Hare’s Pub. Or, you can simply take breathtakingly beautiful shots at the water’s edge.

The Four Seasons Hotel, Spa & Leisure Club provides everything you need for your destination wedding. Invite all your guests to stay as there are  58 bedrooms, 47 of which have been fully refurbished in the past 12 months.

Here’s just one of many reviews they have received:

‘From the first day we viewed the Four Seasons Hotel, Spa & Leisure Club, we just fell in love. The decor and interior design is just stunningly beautiful. 

We met the amazing wedding coordinator, Linda Scott, and from that moment she couldn’t have been more accommodating.  From giving us advice on suppliers to ideas that added to our guests’ wedding experience, all queries were promptly answered. And if for some reason Linda wasn’t available, Dermot was on hand to help us out. 

The day of our wedding was amazing. The food was incredible, and the staff were so friendly. Our Wedding Day was all we ever dreamed of and more and it’s all down to the hard work and dedication of the team at the Four Seasons Hotel.”
