The Carriage Rooms at Montalto Estate Full Description
Magnificent, private and luxurious surroundings, the promise of exclusivity with the highest standards of service – The Carriage Rooms offer all this and so much more. Set in picture-perfect surroundings, The Carriage Rooms are simply the best and promise a fairytale wedding venue that only host one special occasion per day, so you can be sure of our undivided attention at all times. From reception through to dining room, bar and function area, we provide a different area for each part of your day. The experience begins with a drinks reception where guests can mingle freely throughout The Carriage Rooms and surrounding grounds. In The Walled Garden, think lawn games and Pimms in hand, while indoors enjoy the incredible vistas from every room. The Grade B-listed building houses our beautiful banquet hall which has been fully restored to keep its original stone walls and wooden beams while impeccably including the latest technology creating a bright and spacious room. After the wedding breakfast, guests will move downstairs into The Sawmill function room which boasts a sprung dance floor, bar facilities, generous seating, and atmospheric lighting - everything you need to 'Wow' your guests as you party late into the night! A quieter inter-connecting lounge area adds to this graceful setting, while an outside terrace with awning and gas fire creates a relaxed party atmosphere. The Carriage Rooms is fully licensed for religious or civil ceremonies, as well as civil partnerships, providing a unique and intimate wedding venue which radiates an ambience of relaxed comfort. Your wedding ceremony can be conducted on-site, with the option of an outdoor ceremony in the romantic surroundings of The Walled Garden, or an indoor ceremony in The Sawmill, with its distinctive stone walls and illuminated arches. Wedding catering at The Carriage Rooms is exclusive to Yellow Door and Posh Nosh, two of Northern Ireland’s premier outside catering companies.

Honestly it was our dream wedding!
All of our friends and family commented on the venue saying it was absolutely amazing! But most of all we can’t honestly thank the staff of Montalto enough. Most notably Jude and Conor were fantastic during our set up day and nothing was too much to ask. They were extremely helpful and made us feel so welcome! And to Hannah, thanks for organising the flow of our day! Montalto house was also amazing! It was just as beautiful as we remembered and Billy was so helpful and brilliant craic too!

We all had a truly wonderful day...
In every aspect mentionable the Carriage Rooms exceeded our expectations. Every small detail was perfect and we all had a truly wonderful day. Only a handful of our guests had been to the venue before and without exception everyone was impressed beyond words, especially with the immaculate standard of the grounds and interior. Many said it was way beyond anywhere they’d been before. So thank you team notably Natalia, Jude and Conor. On behalf of the Bride and Groom... it was amazing!

"Nothing was too much trouble"
Natalia, Jude and Hannah were incredibly kind, thoughtful and diligent. They ensured that my wife’s speech was placed safely on her seat. A small glitch with catering arrangements was smoothly handled with professional tact. Billy looked after us brilliantly in the house, and breakfast was delicious. Montalto looked stunning, and with a lack of negative "can't do that" signage, so common at other venues. We felt that the place was ‘ours’ for the day, and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you so much for making our wedding day so incredibly special. From start to finish the team at The Carriage Rooms have been so helpful. All of our guests have commented on how amazing the venue was, with so much attention to detail! Thank you to the team also for their hospitality in Montalto House during our stay. It truly was such a special place for our families to stay after the wedding.
