Weddings at Butler House 

Welcome to Butler House, a unique venue for truly bespoke weddings...

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.

Butler House is ultimately a bespoke venue, we can tailor our weddings to suit you whether you have five guests or fifty, and we will tailor our packages to suit your needs. We have created truly unique weddings in the past, including bare foot humanist ceremonies in the lawn, evening and weekend civil ceremonies for as little as four guests to a banquet for 60 guests and the house and garden are the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography.

We also offer exclusive use of the entire property for 24 hours, including accommodation and a 'second day event' such as a BBQ in our beautiful Garden.  

You can view our updated 2019/2020 Wedding Packages here, and call or email us to arrange a meeting with a wedding coordinator, who would love to talk to you about how we can help to create your perfect day!

Perfect Wedding

Reviewed on Tripadvisor by MaireNiB September 2018

"We had our wedding ceremony and wedding meal at Butler House in September. We planned the event mostly via email from the UK. communication and planning with Butler house staff was faultless at all times. The venue is stunning for a wedding ceremony and we had reception drinks in the garden afterwards which everyone commented on afterwards how much they really enjoyed and felt like VIPs. The garden was perfect for photographs. We had a meal for immediate family after that, and lots of people said the food was the best they have ever tasted, including the best tarte tatin! Everyone agreed the quality of the food was excellent, including breakfasts! The chef is amazing!


We stayed in the Lady Eleanor Suite which was elegant and luxurious, with great views of the castle and gardens! A real treat! All our family stayed at Butler House and enjoyed their stay.
The location of Butler House makes it the perfect wedding venue for a weekend with family and friends who can explore the city by foot and take a very short stroll to the castle!


To top it all off we have afternoon tea the next day for wider family and friends. Everyone enjoyed their food, especially the fresh scones and cakes. I would highly recommend Butler House for your wedding, or family and friend weekend gathering, the staff will make sure you really enjoy every minute of your stay!"
