Located just 30 minutes from Belfast in the beautiful County Down countryside, The Carriage Rooms at Montalto is the perfect spot for a luxurious and romantic wedding day. A privately-owned estate dating from the 1700s, it boasts not one, but two venues! Montalto House is one of Ireland's finest grand houses - we were blown away when we visited. It's best suited to intimate weddings for a smaller celebration. While the luxurious, converted Carriage Rooms provide a truly unique space in which to host your dream day and party the night away with a mega celebration. The impeccably professional, experienced and passionate wedding team bring a wealth of knowledge to every event, and paired with exceptional cuisine, and some utterly gorgeous backdrops for photos, and you've got a wedding venue to fall in love with
The Carriage Rooms has a maximum capacity of 180 guests, so it's ideal for elegant, countryside celebrations. Boasting a fountain and glasshouse, the beautifully-manicured Walled Garden provides a lovely backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. The Banquet Hall offers an incredible space for dinner, after which guests can move downstairs to the spacious dancefloor, bar, and seating area of The Sawmill. With its distinctive stone walls and illuminated arches, this is the perfect spot in which to kick the celebrations into high gear! If, on the other hand, you're planning a more intimate affair, Montalto House is a dream location, catering for up to 66 guests.
The wedding meal at The Carriage Rooms at Montalto is provided by a number of top catering companies, who pride themselves on only using seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients. These expert teams will work alongside each couple to create a bespoke wedding menu, which might include roasted Kilkeel hake, slow-braised Irish Hereford beef or any other number of Irish delicacies. Thinking of a menu inspired by international cuisine? They'll be happy to accommodate that, too!
The Georgian mansion known as Montalto House offers nine, beautifully-appointed en-suite bedrooms, and its guests can even enjoy a full gourmet breakfast the following morning! With open log fires, luxurious seating and stunning art, the house is a warm and welcoming space for guests to relax in.
Drinking in the beauty of the estate with a cocktail in hand after the ceremony, and that showstopping wedding meal, which your guests will be talking about for years to come!
