Civil Ceremony Venues Dublin

At our civil ceremony venues, couples have the option of putting their own stamp on the rooms with personal features and set up.

Many couples have their civil ceremony in the Dublin Registry and then host their reception in Thomas Prior Hall.

While the guests enjoy refreshments in the warm and welcoming atrium lounge, the events team will reset the room with a turnaround time of approximately 2 hours. Many couples take this opportunity to take photography on the grounds, the nearby Herbert Park and Dublin City Centre.


Outdoor Civil Wedding Ceremony Venue

During the summer, couples can have their civil ceremony out on the stunning front lawns.

The scenery provides the most beautiful backdrop for photography. Many couples also enjoy having their drinks receptions out in this area, in front of the white water fountain.

In advance, couples who wish to have a civil ceremony on the grounds must visit Registrar of Marriages on Lower Grand Canal Street, Dublin 2 for all of the information they may need for their big day. Couples must also organise the civil ceremony themselves.
