Ireland | Europe
With its palette of greens and mystical fogs, Ireland is a country steeped in beauty and history - an inspiring destination wedding location. Do you need your faith in humanity restored? The Irish are only too willing to do so, with their warm graciousness and contagious good humor. When in the Republic of Ireland, all newly married couples should go to the Blarney Stone to receive the gift of eloquence. Of course, you will experience that gift - magical storytelling - holed up in any Irish pub, whether one from Dublin's famed literary history, or a simple country neighborhood watering hole.
When in the Republic of Ireland, couples should join hands around the ancient Holestone Marriage Stone in Country Antrim, a ritual that ensures eternal love and happiness. Come to Ireland ready to enjoy hiking, cycling, mountain climbing and fishing; or to explore the spiritual past of Ireland's holy wells, grottoes, ancient circles and early Christian monasteries. There is plenty of romance and enchantment on the Emerald Isle... come prepared to never want to leave.
Peak tourist season are the months of July and August, when warm weather, long daylight hours, and many festivals draw crowds. The best months to visit, or plan a wedding, may be as those crowds thin out, in September, or before they form, in June.
