Planning a wedding? Look no further than Offaly's award-winning County Arms Hotel

Recently voted the best family hotel in the Midlands, the 4-star County Arms Hotel is beautifully situated on a 9 acre estate in the Heritage town of Birr. A superbly restored Georgian house, the County Arms Hotel has been run by the Loughnane family for over 55 years, as a trusted wedding venue.

Their stunning award winning gardens offers the ideal backdrop for the most important photographs of your life. An archway of roses leads to Ireland’s only restored gazebo, housing vines in the summer and autumn months. The hotel itself is 200 years old and other features in the walled garden include the original stone-walls and garden gate. If the weather is unkind, they have a number of graceful period suites in the Georgian House, perfect for elegant photographs that you will treasure.

At the County Arms Hotel, a great emphasis is placed on food and service. The hotel will consult with you to create a personalised menu for your Wedding day.

They offer a choice of banqueting suites. Up to 350 guests can be catered for in the Moorpark Ballroom with private bar, smoking courtyard and reception lobby. A variety of smaller suites in the Original Georgian House are ideal for your civil ceremony or wedding receptions between 20 and 95 guests. The Loughnane family provides complete exclusivity to one wedding per day.
