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. :-)

magical venue
Rebekah and Patrick’s wedding was held in Drenagh House on 28 October 2022. We had visited this amazing venue several times prior to our daughters wedding . We were extremely impressed with the friendliness of all the staff and how we were greeted at each visit . It is hard to put into words how fabulous this magical venue is. We had the best day ever , the attention to detail, the reassurance from staff and the feeling that we were almost a part of their extended family was unreal.

If you’re considering Drenagh, book it!
The bar staff, the waiters, the house keepers and chefs were simply amazing. I left the next morning so happy with my decision to choose Drenagh House as our wedding venue. I left with a hug from the staff and promised myself I’d take the time to leave them the outstanding review that they deserve. If you’re considering Drenagh, book it! I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.

The staff are fantastic
We had our wedding at Drenagh at the end of October 2022, the venue and the staff are amazing. The venue is beautiful with peacocks on the grounds and the leaves during the autumn months are amazing, really the most stunning venue I have seen. The staff are fantastic, there is nothing they won’t help with. They are the friendliest and helpful staff I have ever seen at a wedding. If you are looking for a wedding venue, choose Drenagh as you won’t regret it.
