Whether it’s a small intimate affair of 20-40 people, or a larger party for 250, Tulfarris is a perfect  choice for your dream wedding day. Even though  we’re just 40 mins drive from Dublin city, Tulfarris boasts stunning scenery, set against the backdrop of the Blessington Lakes and Wicklow Mountains. Following a major investment programme, the resort has been transformed into a whole new world.

The 18th century manor house has been carefully restored, featuring stunning reception and drawing rooms, and a picturesque courtyard, ideal for a pre-dinner drinks reception. We can also offer you a barbecue on the day of your wedding.  If you prefer to entertain indoors, our beautiful drawing rooms and library will be an instant winner with your guests, while our 7 opulent suites can be allocated to the bridal party for their overnight accommodation. We also have a special room for civil ceremonies and partnerships.

The main hotel has also been fully refurbished, with 60 beautiful guest rooms, Elk Bar and Lime Tree restaurant, all furnished to luxurious standards.

With only one wedding per day, our team of professionals will ensure that your wedding celebrations take centre stage.

Please contact us in advance to arrange an appointment with our wedding co-coordinator


“Myself and Ed have finally settled back into work and I just wanted to send an email to you all at Tulfarris to thank you for your hard work in the preparation for our wedding. From start to finish, the warmth and friendliness, helpfulness and professionalism of all the staff we dealt with was exceptional.

We’d also like to say a big thank you to Susan for being so patient and showing ourselves, our parents and bridal party around the hotel (3 times!). Susan was tremendously friendly, courteous and helpful throughout, including the day after the wedding. The reception room and the Manor House both looked fabulous when we arrived. We had a vision of what it might be like, but this was surpassed.

On the day itself, Derek was an immense help to us and made everything run like clockwork. His attention to detail is second to none. We had no worries at any time and whenever we had a question or request, he appeared immediately and sorted everything out in a flash.

To the Chef, we would like to say the food was simply beautiful. All of our guests commented on the high standards shown by the kitchen and the warm cider went down a treat too. The Waiting and Bar staff were also fantastic. Our guests have commented on how friendly, attentive and helpful they were, which was wonderful to hear. We’ve been to many weddings in the past year and have not received service like it.

All in all, we had a fabulous day and just wanted to send this email to reiterate our thanks to you all. There were never any issues in the build-up or throughout the weekend and for that, we are extremely grateful. Our guests had a truly wonderful time and are still talking about the hotel and the staff.

So thank you all again and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year “

Julie & Edward, October 2011

“I would like to thank you so much for your service, help and support over the last 12 months and especially over the 3 days that we and the majority of our family and friends occupied the hotel. From the moment we arrived at the hotel the staff were friendly, efficient and supportive and we will be eternally grateful for this. Each and every person that attended the wedding was full of praise for the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the value for money of the accommodation, the quality of food at the wedding breakfast (several people told me that they thought it was the nicest wedding meal they have ever tasted). The playground, the golf course and the BBQ were all appreciated and enjoyed by different groups attending the wedding. The peaceful and picturesque setting of the hotel and the privacy offered of the wedding venue added to the enjoyment of all our guests.

For Ben and I to hear such glowing reports of the hotel from our family and friends only confirmed all of the thoughts and conversations we had over the few days of the wedding. We had an absolutely wonderful time and we will cherish out memories for many years to come

Gillian & Ben, August 2011

“This is to thank you, Derek, Ann Marie, Honora, Chef, and all the team at Tulfarris for making Jenny and James’ wedding celebrations over three days so memorable. They are both are elated at how it all went, as are Peter and I. The compliments from our guests are legion, so very many of them saying it was the best wedding they had ever attended.

Peter remarked this morning how you all made us feel as though we were the only wedding you were concerned with – then we saw the two following over the weekend! I worked in the hotel industry myself, albeit many years ago, and fully realise the amount of hard work which goes into making such an undertaking run so smoothly – despite, apparently, our best efforts to derail the timetable on the night. Everything was perfection; and we are very pleased, too, that the venue had the benefit of Mary O’Gara’s beautiful flowers on the veranda and entrance to the ballroom over the weekend.

Tulfarris’ reputation is justifiably spreading far and wide, as I said to Derek, so your combined efforts are not in vain. It meant a great deal to this family to have our celebrations so close to home. We felt a sense of ‘belonging’, and it made us proud to be able to entertain our family and friends at such a venue. The golfers among us were delighted with the course, and they and everyone else with the setting, the hospitality, the food, their rooms – everything. Hotels may be as elegant, as starred, and as comfortable as they please, but without an unfailingly pleasant and caring staff, as at Tulfarris, they really don’t amount to much.

We thank you for your attention to every detail over the past almost seven months, for your patience in dealing with our myriad arrangements, and particularly for your constant good humour. It made dealing with it all so easy for us, and it is more appreciated than Peter and I can say.”

Joan & Peter – Wedding Reception July 2011

“So where do I start about the wedding??!! We had the most amazing day of our lives!!!

it was spot on, every fine detail, perfect!! Everything I had asked for to be put on tables was there, our music was on, and lighting was gorgeous!!

When we arrived the staff were just brilliant and could not have done any more on that day to make it any more perfect! Very attentive & so charming!! Everyone spoke very highly of all the staff that were on that day!

We cannot thank you and the staff of Tulfarris enough for making our day so wonderful & so perfect!”

Jennifer & James, July 2011

“We are sitting here by the pool in sunny Spain going back over all the memories from our amazing wedding day, which would not have been so amazing without all your extra special personal care and attention to detail.

All our guests are saying how we should be so proud of ourselves with the fantastic day/weekend we put on for them, referring to the food & service, but we think that credit should go to you guys & the chef.

Not sure who we need to thank for the great weather we had for both days, I can’t give you the credit for that but we were blessed!! The courtyard reception was one of our highlights.

After our first visit to Tulfarris when we met Derek for the show around then our stay on Valentines night which included a delicious dinner in Lime Tree restaurant, we were sold on our venue & booked our date with Lilian the flowing day. From that moment on the service we got from all 4 of you was just flawless.

We were well impressed with the BBQ on Sat, as were our guests. It surpassed all our expectations, and Adrians bar was the perfect private location, especially when the weather stayed on our side into Sat too!

With sincere gratitude & well deserved thanks for our perfect wedding weekend…”

Stella & Colin, June 2011

“We had just an amazing day. Everything went perfectly. I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Everyone loved the Manor House and with Tropical Storm playing for our reception drinks, it went down very well.

So many people commented on how nice their food was. Friends of ours who are planning on getting married next year are even considering Tulfarris as their venue now!

But I have to say, thank you so much to you and to everyone there as it was just amazing. Can’t believe it’s all over now and I can’t wear my wedding dress again!

Best of luck with all the weddings you have booked for the year… they are lucky people!”

CathyAnn & Rory, June 2011

“Just want to say a huge thanks you to all the staff and management for a fantastic day on Friday 13th May 2011. We were really looked after and couldn’t have asked for more. Everybody had a fantastic time and continue to compliment the food, wine and service we received on the day.

Brides to be, look no further as you will not find a better place to have your wedding than Tulfarris Hotel!!!!

Thanks again everyone and in particular Derek”

Jennifer & Stephen, June 2011

“Again thank you for making our day more special. You and Kathryn do an amazing job, not forgetting Annemarie in reservations and Linda on reception.”

Cara & Andy, May 2011

“Hi to all the fantastic staff at Tulfarris!

We were absolutely delighted with the day, it was fantastic! The staff could not have been more helpful, friendly and attentive, huge thanks to Lillian, Catherine, Derek and Honoria, and everyone else . They really put us at ease coming up to the day! The place looked fantastic, the food was wonderful and it was everything we had hoped for. We’ll be in touch soon with photos etc but just wanted to leave you a little message to say well done.”

Niamh & James, May 2011

“Thank you so so much we had an absolutely fabulous day and weekend. It couldn’t have been any better.

The food was perfect and the feedback from all our guests was very good, they all really enjoyed it, so thank you to the chef. All was very well organised from the manor house to the reception room. I had a lot of guests from England and the country and all remarked that Tulfarris Hotel was a real hidden gem with such beautiful surroundings.

Thank you all so much they will be cherished memories for me, Peter and Ben.”

Michelle & Peter, April 2011

“We stayed over a 3 night period from Monday 4th – Thursday 7th May. We enjoyed our stay immensely, and we will not hesitate to recommend the hotel to friends and family. The quality of the accommodation, food and service was extremely high, as was the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff who deserve a special mention. In particular, Paul, Jackie & Scott – these are the staff we had most contact with. We hope to be back again in the summer when hopefully the weather is better.”

Frank & Maureen – April 2010

“Just want to say a HUGE thank you to the staff in Tulfarris for making my day fabulous on Saturday! So lucky with the weather, the hotel beautiful & the staff were brilliant on the day, especially Derek, Lilian, Kathryn, Ann-Marie & the chef and the girls on reception, actually couldn’t fault anything about it, was really made to feel like a princess for the day i will send when i get them back”

Caitriona & Fran – Wedding Reception, April 2011

“After brilliantly hosting our wedding on the 12th March 2011, we want to thank the hotel staff and wedding team at Tulfarris for their hard work, professionalism in making our special day even better. Your service level, from first arrival to final departure, was warm and faultless!

Food was absolutely delicious and timely. Our complements to the chef (from all our guests).

We would have no hesitation to recommend Tulfarris to any couple seeking a top class venue for their wedding”

Larry & Ash – Wedding, March 2011

“I would like to thank Lillian and the team for making our wedding at Tulfarris a truly magical experience. We genuinely felt that the team wanted to ensure that we had everything we needed to enjoy every minute of the day. The manor house, courtyard, reception venue and menus offer something a little bit different for those looking for a unique wedding. All our guests were as delighted with the venue as much as we were. I would highly recommend choosing Tulfarris for your wedding. “

Andrea & Ray – Wedding Celebration, March 2010

“We had a excellent time getting married thanks very much to you Derek, Kathryn, Sue and chef William and all the staff at Tulfarris, you made the day even more special.”
