Civil Ceremonies


A perfect venue for your ceremony

The Westport Woods Hotel is fully registered to provide a beautiful civil ceremony at our hotel in Westport, Mayo. When you have a civil ceremony at Westport Woods, you will either be treated to the decadent Lakeside Room or our Mulberry Suite which are bright suites with natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows that frame our private woodland. We also can hold an unforgettable wedding under tree canopies followed by a champagne reception on our patio.


A secluded, rural idyllic venue

For a touch of grandeur to your wedding ceremony, you will walk our traditional red carpet; or why not choose a grassy path scattered with a flurry of petals. Westport Woods Hotel has a choice of idyllic outdoor spaces and indoor rooms that have capacity for up to 250 guests. Every civil ceremony celebration is unique and tailored to your requirements.
