Journeys Connect has partnered with West Coast Weddings Ireland to create Dream Ireland Weddings, a full service destination wedding management service to Ireland.
Ireland, renowned for its soothing landscape, is the ideal location for a destination wedding. What sets Ireland apart as a wedding and civil partnership destination is the warmth of the people, and its reputation for throwing a truly legendary party. Ireland recently voted by a huge majority to legalize same-sex marriage, becoming the first country in the world to do so by popular vote.
Couples can choose from a range of hand-picked venues to customize the event in a way that suits their styles and budgets. Options include Ashford Castle and Dromoland Castle, two of Ireland’s most well-known 5-star castle resorts; 4 and 5-star hotels such as Muckross Park Hotel, Aghadoe Heights, and Ballyseede Castle.
A dedicated wedding specialist located in Ireland will work with each couple to plan the details, from wedding concept development to the ceremony and legalities, décor, and entertainment.
Working with the couple’s travel agent, a group specialist will coordinate and arrange all travel for those who want to share this special day with the bride and groom, including:
- Round-trip air from the USA
- Group transfers or car-hire
- Group sightseeing excursions
