If you are searching for the perfect venue that offers elegance and sophistication in a unique and luxurious environment, then The Carriage Rooms at Montalto is the ideal location.

The Grade B listed building, originally a 19th century threshing mill, with its beautiful stone walls has been restored to retain its character and blend into the historic, rural setting while providing a romantic and exclusive luxury venue for your wedding.

The Carriage Rooms

This private wedding venue is set in the stunning surroundings of the County Down countryside.  Holding up to 180 people, the venue is licensed for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies. Indoor ceremonies take place in The Sawmill with distinctive stone walls and illuminated arches while outdoor ceremonies take place in the romantic surroundings of the gardens. The 400 acre Montalto estate offers endless possibilities for photography, and because of this, everything you need is in one magical location.



Numerous terraces with stylish seating allow guests to enjoy the formal gardens for warm summer weddings, while open log fires add warmth and atmosphere to wonderful winter events.
