We have travelled the length and breadth of Ireland and come across some truly magnificent sites that only this job would bring you to. You can see on the map below where our favourite locations have been:
In February 2013 we erected 4 Giant Hats complete with fireplace, reindeer skins and fairy lights at Ballinlough Castle, Westmeath to create a magical winter wedding.
Ballintoy, Co Antrim
Situated at the McShane Glen Cottages, we have done a few events here with the stunning and dramatic view of the Atlantic Ocean over the cliffs of the rugged Antrim Coast.
Ballymaloe, Co Cork
Over 5 years ago we did the wedding for Emily Allen in the beautiful grounds of Ballymaloe Country House. It was an exciting time for us, putting 6 Giant Hats up in such magnificent surroundings. I think the boys certainly enjoyed the lunch provided by Ballymaloe!
Belderrig, North Mayo
This one really put our tipis to the test. Off the beaten track, Belderrig is where only the bravest dare go! But boy are you rewarded with the most stunning view. See Andrew below enoying the local weather!
This National Property house is a venue close to our hearts. It is only a few miles from our Co Down Office and overlooks the beautiful Strangford Lough. 2 sites are available here, one on the immaculate front lawn of Castle Ward House, and one by the Farmyard overylooking the Lough.
Delphi Lodge, Connemara
Amazing place that blew us away. Set in a wild and unsploilt valley of extraordinary beauty, it overlooks the lakes and rivers of the Delphi Valley against a backdrop of Connemara's tallest mountains.
Finnebrogue, Co Down
A truly remarkable location just outside Downpatrick that you really wouldn't know is there. Set in a wild flower meadow overlooking Finnebrogue Lake surrounded by stunning woodland. It looks as though it is in the middle of nowhere but is strangely accessible.
Inish Bofin is a remote island off the coast of Galway. Getting to this wild, unspoilt island was something of a challenge for the Magnakata Crew, but once all the equipment arrived safely via a little ferry, the boys were able to take in the exquiste setting. If it's a beach wedding you are after, you can't do much better than Inish Bofin!
Set in the heart of Lower Lough Erne, Lusty Beg, though not quite as wild and rustic as Inish Bofin, is beautiful and quirky, and slightly more accessible! The tipis can be pitched so close to the lake creating an almost seamless feel.
Narrow Water Castle, Co Down
We have done a few weddings at this stunning and majestic venue based at the foot of the Mourne Mountains overlooking the mouth of Carlingford Lough. The last one we did was for 300 people in 6 Giant Hats, all linked together into a donut shape. With Narrow Water Castle behind you, this location will sweep you and your guests off your feet.
