What is so great about Ballyscullion Park is that it is so so clear how much Rosalind cares about all of the weddings there.
I literally just don’t know where to start when I talk about Ballyscullion Park. When we were looking at wedding venues, the one thing I knew for certain was that I wanted a private venue just for us for the day & as soon as we visited, we knew it was the place for us!! It is just pure tranquility tucked away and it keeps uncovering more and more as you explore the grounds. We booked our wedding back at the start of 2018 and 3 wedding dates later because of Covid, finally managed to have our dream day. We could not have asked for anything more from Rosalind, Cathy and the team. With the date changes, the moves and the uncertainty, they were always there at hand with fast responses to help us know what we could do and to help provide the best options available. What could have been an even more stressful time was just made better by the fact we were dealing with these lovely people. What is so great about Ballyscullion Park is that it is so so clear how much Rosalind cares about all of the weddings there and all the brides and grooms to be. I never felt like anything I asked for was too much trouble. The day was everything I ever hoped it would be and so much more. I have had so many messages to say what an amazing venue Ballyscullion was and it is just so true. You can make it whatever you want it to be and it feels like two magical places day and night - I just loved that it was different vibes in the day and in the evening. We got married outside in the strawberry garden and were so lucky with the beautiful weather. Our guests got to enjoy the gardens to the full capacity and it was just amazing to look around and see everyone absolutely loving life. I loved that we were able to have all our photos taken in the gardens amongst all our family and friends and didn’t need to be taken away from them. Hearing all the laughs and the fun they were having was just so heart warming. The food was amazing, the bar staff were amazing and honestly just everything about Ballyscullion Park is magical. I would recommend it to any couple who want to make a venue their own. I wish I could do it all again but I just can’t thank the team enough for their patience, support, and for sharing their home with us for our wedding!!

It definitely is a hidden gem and we loved every minute of our special day, we wish we could do it all again.
We had the most amazing and wonderful day for our wedding at Ballyscullion Park. From the day we viewed it, we knew it was special and the venue for us. It was everything we had ever dreamed of and so much more. Rosalind and Cathy were amazing. Their communication was excellent from the day we booked this venue. They updated us throughout and nothing was ever too much of a problem even during the pandemic. Thankfully, we were able to change our date without any issues, they were very aware of the situation. No query was ever too big or too small and always making us feel at ease. On the day of the wedding Rosalind and then Geraldine were always in the background ensuring everything was running smoothly. The bar manager Garry and his staff were outstanding. They always seemed to have time for a chat yet were very competent in serving our guests. The accommodation was up to date, well equipped and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay both on the wedding night and the night before. I would highly recommend this venue to everyone with its outstanding beauty. The attention to detail from the staff in all areas, from how well the garden is kept, to the marquee, accommodation, car park and even the restrooms were immaculate. It definitely is a hidden gem and we loved every minute of our special day, we wish we could do it all again. Thank you to everyone involved in our day 💕

Nothing was ever too much trouble. They made the whole experience very personal and they really have your best interests at heart.
I cannot recommend Ballysculllian Park enough as a Wedding Venue!!!! My husband and I were completely blown away at how amazing our wedding day was last Friday. Guests have not stopped talking about the spectacular venue!! Rosalind and her team are absolutely amazing to work with. From our first viewing, nearly two years ago, it was clear that Rosalind really cares about your wedding and wants your day to be everything you dream of and more. Rosalind and Cathy were so responsive to emails throughout, something I was really grateful for, as it made the planning so much easier and stress free. Nothing was ever too much trouble. They made the whole experience very personal and they really have your best interests at heart. There is no need to stop anywhere for photos as the gardens at Ballysculllian Park are simply stunning. The swing and giant heart were also favourite photo opportunities for the guests! We had our drinks reception in the Strawberry Garden which is beautiful and provided some needed shelter from the sun. It was amazing walking into the venue and seeing guests mingle with their drinks across the lawn and enjoying the garden games. The marquee looked so beautiful on the day and Rosalind and her team set it up for me exactly as I had imagined. We had our first dance out by the fire pit, something we will cherish forever. I have never seen this before so it was truly amazing to have all all guests around the fire for our first dance. The band were also able to play outside, again, memories we will have forever. I can't thank Rosalind, Cathy, Geraldine and Gary enough for making our wedding day so so special. I haven't stopped looking at photos and videos since. I really hope I get to come back as a guest soon. It will always be a place so so important to me. If you are thinking about having your reception here, book now!!!! Love it so so much!

Our favourite features were the beautifully dressed marquee, the firepit and surrounding seated area and the outdoor spaces for musicians.
Andrea and I had the best day of our lives on Sat 10th July at Ballyscullion Park - Geraldine, Cathy & Rosalind set up and delivered a flawless (and seamingly effortless!) wedding experience for us. The blend of indoors and outdoors was perfect for our summer wedding, with all tastes catered for and all special requests efficiently accommodated. Attention to detail and wedding advice were 10/10 on and leading up to the big day - planning the reception was painless, even despite the ongoing pandemic-related restrictions. Our favourite features were the beautifully dressed marquee, the firepit and surrounding seated area, outdoor spaces for musicians, the unending botanical garden photo opportunities and having the ringrose room for a day 2 brunch feast with families. The bar team (Garry, Orla & co) were phenomenally helpful and very reasonably priced. We're just amazed at how such a large venue manages to make such a high quality wedding happen without any fuss or stress and would highly recommend Ballyscullion for an exclusive (yet conveniently located) wedding in NI.
