We have a licenced bar service. Licensed for civil and religious ceremonies, at Ballyscullion Park, you can choose to have your marriage ceremony and reception in the one venue. The Walled Garden offers a beautiful relaxed setting for your wedding ceremony and photographs, with two picturesque summerhouses cascading with fragrant roses, clematis and honeysuckle. At Ballyscullion Park, we have recently created a rustic and romantic Woodland Wedding venue. Situated within The Palace Ruins, just a short walk from our Courtyard and Walled Garden. This Game of Thrones location offers couples a magical setting to say ‘I do’. From the wooded trail to the tree-top canopied ceremony location with views over Lough Beg, everything about this setting is naturally romantic. As the light fades the garden walls and trees are illuminated by subtly changing multi-coloured lights, and the fire-pit blazes invitingly, giving your wedding a magical feeling of enchantment Ballyscullion Park is centrally located close to the A6, just 35 minutes from Belfast, Coleraine and Cookstown, and 50 minutes from Derry/Londonderry Whether you wedding is to be large or small, traditional or exotic, we will do our best to help you create the wedding of your dreams at Ballyscullion Park.

The most perfect wedding venue! As soon as we arrived to view Ballyscullion it completely stole our hearts & we knew this was the venue for us for our big day. The staff are so welcoming & the service was outstanding both on the day & lead up to the day as they worked with us to organise everything. The grounds are maintained to the highest standards which made them absolutely stunning for the backdrop of our photos. We really couldn't recommend Ballyscullion enough ❤ A very delighted Mr & Mrs Dallas

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!!

Best day of our lives
Ballyscullion Park is beyond amazing! The venue and setting is simply beautiful, from the gardens, cottages and the stunning marquee. Rosalind, Cathy, Garry and all the staff were so welcoming and made us feel so at ease and welcome. And this is what really sets them a part from other venues, their hosting skills are out of this world! We could not recommend Ballyscullion Park enough and would do our wedding day again in a heartbeat. And best of all, we would not change a single thing. They really are the most amazing people and the grounds are simply stunning. We hope some day we get to visit again as guests of a wedding. Thank you so much for a fantastic day.
