Civil Ceremonies

Changes took place in Irish Marriage Law in 2007, resulting in Civil Ceremonies being allowed to take place in venues other than registry offices or Churches. The Maryborough Hotel & Spa are delighted to have been approved to host civil ceremonies.

Hold your ceremony in our stunning new conservatory-style Orangery, or choose from a selection of beautiful banquet rooms- whether it is a large group of family and friends or a small intimate affair. One of our experienced wedding coordinators will assist you with all aspects of planning.
