Full Description
Drenagh Estate has been a family home since 1836 and that special family feel still lives on today through our weddings, this magnificent Georgian mansion, built by Charles Lanyon for the McCausland family in 1837, exudes elegance and grandeur. From the exquisite period interiors to the handsome parkland setting, guests can’t help but relax in the tranquillity and comfort of this beautiful stately home. Situated near Limavady, at the northern stretch of the exhilarating Antrim coastline, Drenagh is a wonderful place from which to explore some of Northern Ireland’s greatest natural and cultural treasures – the Giant’s Causeway, Benone Beach, Downhill, Mussenden Temple and the historic City of Derry. Drenagh House offers luxury Accommodation for up to 22 guests in 11 rooms The main reception rooms offer a magnificent and relaxed setting. In addition to the morning room, library, drawing room, and 2 dining rooms, there is a home cinema to keep children entertained. Discover the magic of The Moon Garden, the beauty of The Walled Garden, explore the many other pockets of beauty that are just waiting to be discovered as you wonder through the enchanting grounds of Drenagh Estate. Like most venues, we will provide help with planning, setting up, serving drinks and preparing food; but unlike other venues, we are so much more! We are the lipstick checkers, the buttonhole fixers, the veil fluffers and the tissue providers. We are the sparkler lighters, the dress fixers and everything else in between. When we say we are here every step of the way we really do mean it. :-)

The Drenagh Steam Team
On 11th November 2017 we had Our Wedding at Drenagh. The house is incredibly beautiful and has so much character but the people at Drenagh are amazing and without them our day would not have been the same. Joanne helped us plan our day and ensured that everything was perfect. We spoke to the chef who instantly knew what we wanted and oh boy did they deliver. The food was delicious! From the moment we walked into Drenagh we felt right at home and it’s the people there that make this venue so magical. My bridesmaid and I stayed at Drenagh the night before our wedding and we were given the most special welcome by Trevor and Annouska. I honestly felt like our wedding was the only wedding ever hosted at Drenagh because everything was so warm and personal. Trevor is hands down, one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and everyone at or wedding agreed. He is an absolute perfectionist and made it his mission that our wedding day was the best day of our lives. Geraldine and Gail were with us every step of the way and made sure our wedding was everything that we dreamt of. These people are serious professionals but with the warmest personalities. We had our ceremony in the stunning moon garden and had our reception and dinner in the main house. Every single one of our guests were blown away by Drenagh’s beauty and attention to detail provided by the amazing staff. Last and certainly not least, we would like to thank Bridget the housekeeper who was there to make sure everyone was having the best time. What an amazing person she is and we all just adored her. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to every single person at Drenagh for making our wedding day the best day of our lives and we will treasure the memories forever. We feel incredibly lucky that we were able to have our wedding here. Margaret & Stuart Kidd

Dream wedding in Drenagh
My sister got married in Drenagh on 11.11.17, I am not one to be left speechless or stuck for words but that is what happened when I attended this wedding. The staff in Drenagh are out of this world I have travelled all over the world and have never experienced service like it, they are extraordinary. Every single member of staff were as friendly, kind and welcoming and made every one of the guests feel at home. Trevor, Annouska, Geraldine, Gail and Bridget are perfection they made my sister and her new husband feel so welcome the service afforded to them was so personal and unique! I would like to personally thank them from the bottom of my heart for making my sisters dreams come true. The house and grounds are enchanting it was like a real life fairytale setting that Walt Disney himself couldn't not even dream of, from the intimate ceremony in the moon garden to the reception in the main house everything was flawless. Every person I spoke to remarked on how special Drenagh was and that day is something that will stay with me forever. Thank you again to all of the staff at Drenagh for what you done for my sister and her new husband neither of them took the smile of their faces all day! As I said before Drenagh is beautiful but it is each and everyone of you that make it magical. Bridgeen O’Hanlon

Amazing day in the most stunning venue :)
We had simply the best day at our wedding on 6th October 2017. From start to finish, the staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, which helped make our day completely magical. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to get married and will be recommending it to everyone!

Heaven on Earth
From the beginning of the planning process to checking out the day after our wedding the staff at Drenagh have gone above and beyond with their service. It was truly a dream come true. It was difficult planning the wedding from the US but Joanne was amazing and I actually miss her now that the wedding is over. Trevor and the entire staff made us feel at home and made me and my family feel like royalty. I love in Las Vegas, the wedding capital of the world, and I've personally worked many wedding functions and helped with planning as well and the service and hospitality that we received for our wedding day far surpassed anything I've ever seen or could hope for. I've actually given better service working back at home with my clients because of the example and inspiration I received at Drenagh. I wish there was more than 5 stars that I could give to Drenagh. If you are reading this and deciding on a venue for your wedding look no further.....it will be as close to heaven on earth that you could get. Thank you Joanne, Trever and all the staff from the bottom of my heart for giving me and my family the most beautiful experience. Xoxo
