Getting married in Ireland? Here’s the right venue according to your star sign!
Our resident astrologist, Seer Sive, matches your star sign to the most auspicious wedding destination for your sign.
“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. …Loving and being loved brings warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.” – Oscar Wilde
The quote as mentioned above by our man Oscar, is quite the fodder for star-crossed lovers. We are all in love with love. But love doesn’t always go to plan, which is why it is a good idea to choose an auspicious venue for your wedding day.
Fate and destiny do seem to get involved in everything we do, so why fight it? The zodiac has existed for a long, long time because we know in our hearts that the time of year you are born does absolutely affect your personality. And that, of course, affects whom we fall in love with.
Many of us believe that love is written in the stars. But a location also can be written up there as well. It needs to be considered while choosing your wedding destination. You may be surprised but hosting a wedding can get a lot easier if you go with what your horoscope knows.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
If you are an Aries, you love adventure, and you love being the centre of attention. That is why a wedding with a wildly gorgeous backdrop is perfect for Aries. There are several sites in Ireland where you can have one of the most beautiful – yet dramatic – nature-filled weddings.
The Armada Hotel at Spanish Point in County Clare is a gorgeous venue that allows your wedding to be held against striking vistas. With moody skies and rocky beaches as a backdrop, your big day will be remembered forever.
In this venue, you will be able to hold your wedding ceremony overlooking the wildly gorgeous Atlantic. The photos will look amazing on your walls for the rest of your lives.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Taureans are famous for enjoying their love to the fullest. They need a wildly romantic love story, and here, they will get it. Ballymagarvey Village Manor in County Meath is romantic, steeped in history, and exquisite. The medieval tower and church are centuries old and are dripping in wild romance.
The tower has a ‘murder hole’ leading to tunnels, which would have provided an escape for the family in times of attack. Ballymagarvey church is a stunning example of Anglo-Norman stonemasonry with its amazing rose window and chancel arch.
For a Taurean wedding, a beautiful locale, delicious food, fine champagne, and a stunning venue is a must. This place hits every target.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Geminis tend to be sophisticated and have damn good taste. So if you are Gemini, it is always better to go with an urban and elegant venue. Given your nature, the perfect venue is the Cliff Townhouse near Stephen’s Green. It is small, atmospheric, intimate, and just plain pretty. You will love the central location, great food, company of your family and friends, and the sounds of the big smoke.
This Georgian townhouse is perfect for hosting a wedding with 40 guests. Gemini is known to be meticulous about the tiniest details in their lives. And this is a venue where you can live out your personality to the full.
The favourite reception setting for Gemini is the Upstairs Private Dining Room, a high-ceilinged space with an elegant wrought-iron balcony that spans the Georgian building’s façade. This room looks out over pretty Stephen’s Green, a bright canopy of green during the summer months. Divine.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Cancer is famously known to be overwhelmed by high-pressure situations in their lives. Moreover, due to their closeness to their family, it is always better to have an easy, low-key wedding. But Cancerians still like to be a little different. Mussenden Temple, near Castlerock, is a very intimate but highly unusual venue.
This showstopper is run by UK’s National Trust. With an iconic cliff-edge temple, colourful gardens and historic ruins, Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne offer breath-taking backdrops which give the WOW factor.
Leo (July 22 to August 22)
Leo and luxury have always been interchangeable. For a person who loves the finer things in their life, the obvious choice is a beautiful, luxurious wedding venue. With its 800-year history, Carton House is a wedding venue that allows you to feel regal for at least a day in your life.
With a surrounding private parkland of an 1100-acre area, this wedding venue will give you and your guests the taste of the luxury of the aristocracy. This crazy-amazing estate was lost by the Fitzgerald family in the 1920s after over two centuries of ownership, due to a gambling debt.
Carton House was a favourite of Queen Victoria. Princess Grace, Prince Rainier and Peter Sellers were also temporary inhabitants. Just 23 km west of Dublin, in Maynooth, County Kildare, the estate has a special conservation status. It is home to a herd of red deer, badgers, otters, foxes, owls, buzzards, kingfishers, hawks, falcons, and bats. And now, the lions of the zodiac, Leo.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
For all the detail-oriented and practical Virgos, picking an elegant yet affordable wedding venue is more common. As a Virgo, you will have difficulty being comfortable in a wedding venue that is overly extravagant and grandiose. A perfect match for your sign is the beautiful Hotel Doolin. This venue is located inside a beautiful eco barn, at the edge of County Clare.
You will be able to accommodate around 300 of your guests in this gorgeous yet sustainable wedding venue. The best part of this venue, is slipping off to take photos at the achingly beautiful Doonagore Castle. Virgos will have the best wedding photos of any star sign alive.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
Libras are famously known for their love of art and culture. Being a Libra, you might have dreamt of getting married in an elegant venue that accommodates your love for art. The perfect match for artistic-hearted Libras is the Smock Alley in Dublin.
Built in 1662, Smock Alley was once a bustling theatre. Even though this building went through several restoration procedures, the essence of historic artistry can be well witnessed in this great site. As a Libra, setting up your wedding venue in this dreamy theatre will be perfect for you. Plus, the cobblestones of Cow’s Lane make for quite the photo backdrop!
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
Scorpios and their love for nostalgia are quite well-known in the world. If you are a Scorpio, you might still yearn for your childhood days. That is why it is so common for Scorpios to book a wedding venue that is close to their childhood. As fairy tales are a huge part of many people’s childhood, a great zodiac match is the majestic Kilkea Castle in County Kildare.
This 12th-century castle will beautifully fulfil your dream of getting married like a royal. Once the medieval stronghold of the FitzGerald’s, Earls of Kildare, the Castle was built by Hugh de Lacy for one of Strongbow’s Norman Noblemen, Walter de Riddlesford.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
Being a Sagittarius, you will never find a cosy and sombre wedding interesting. For you, a bold and loud wedding with beautiful locales and an exotic vibe will be much more preferable. The perfect match here is the Inish Beg Estate in West Cork.
Inish Beg is a private island estate (with a road bridge, accessible by car). This venue is perfect for holding outdoor ceremonies, with many places across the property to choose from. As an extroverted Sagittarius, you will find the indoor wedding ceremony too confining. That is why the beautiful surrounding of the Inish Beg Estate is way more in tune with your Sagittarius nature.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
Capricorns and their quest for success is a well-known affair. As a Capricorn, that search for success will be present while planning your wedding. It is more probable that a Capricorn would choose a wedding venue that is elegant and intellectually stimulating.
For Capricorns, the K Club is the perfect wedding venue. This French Chateau allows you to accommodate around 300 guests in a five-star setting quite comfortably. The marvellous design of this Kildare club will make your wedding as a Capricorn perfect and, most importantly, successful.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
People who are Aquarius are often considered to be highly intelligent, quiet, and sometimes shy. Even though you might not have all these traits, choosing an intellectual wedding venue is a great idea for you.
Marsh’s Library in Dublin is one of the most beautiful and intellectual places to get married in Ireland. Founded in 1707, the history of this library will make any Aquarius mesmerised. Since the 18th century, this library has remained unchanged. Even though not many weddings are held here, it is not difficult to hold a cosy and charming ceremony in Marsh’s library.
The combination of wonderous novels and the library’s magical ambience will make the Aquarian wedding day perfect.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Pisces and artistry go hand in hand. That is why it is not a surprise that a romantic venue would be perfect for a Pisces wedding. Ireland has a lot of beautiful and romantic sites. But among all the venues in the country, the beautiful Ashley Park House in Tipperary County is the exact fit for Pisces.
This beautiful country house is a tranquil haven on the edge of Lough Ourna. Set in 76 acres of beech woodland and formal gardens, the historic country house provides the perfect backdrop for wedding pics. The Ashley Park House is certainly the best wedding venue for a Pisces. They are the ultimate water sign, and the watery surrounds are just right. It will complement the artistic and romantic nature of Pisces beautifully.
