Civil Ceremony

Civil Ceremonies at The Glendalough Hotel

The Glendalough Hotel is registered and licensed for Civil Ceremonies

Things to know before you start:

Venues for civil ceremonies have to be pre-approved and licensed. The requirement was that the ceremony area had to a be fixed structure and meet various legal criteria now the civil ceremony can be held outdoors in pre-approved areas, which in practice means you can get married our outdoor garden.

Registrars (civil servants) can legally marry couples at non-religious ceremonies in Ireland. (As of 2013 you can also have a secular ceremony organised by The Humanist Association)
A minimum of 3 months is required but there is usually a longer lead time so plan ahead and allow plenty of time to register with your registry office or you may end up getting married on a Monday at 9.30am! You can only get married by a registrar in Ireland from Monday to Friday (no weekend ceremonies unfortunately).
However your Legal Civil ceremony can also be organised by The Humanist Association or Spiritual Ceremonies.
