Waterford Castle transforms dreams of your perfect fairytale wedding into reality. This 16th Century Castle is set on an enchanted 310-acre private island and truly is a dream destination. Ireland’s only island castle surrounded by the River Suir can only be accessed by the Resort's private car ferry over the King’s Channel.
Experience a wonderful sense of anticipation as you make the short crossing by the castle's private car ferry over the King’s Channel to the island resort and travel the beech-lined drive to the castle.
On your wedding day, you will enter the castle through the studded oak doors and instantly find yourself surrounded by the castle’s 500-year-old history as you celebrate the most romantic and memorable occasion of your lives with those you hold dear.
