Why Choose The Ivory Pavilion

20 December 2018

At The Ivory Pavilion, our team our slightly biased, but we believe The Ivory Pavilion is the best kept secret in Ireland. The history and character of Galgorm Castle, alongside the beauty of the Walled Gardens and marquee by McLaughlin Marquees creates something different. The blank canvas of the Marquee means every wedding has its own personal touch and becomes memorable.

Exclusivity – Your Castle Your Day!

Did you know The Ivory Pavilion only hosts one wedding a day? The venue on your wedding day is yours and your only for the day. Our couples love this, especially when they can spend time in Castle, Walled Gardens and Marquee with just their nearest and dearest.

Photo Opportunities (are endless!)

The photo opportunities at The Ivory Pavilion are endless. From the Castle, Old Chapel and inside the Walled Garden, they are all just so mesmerising. You really can create something beautiful, especially if the weather is in your favour!

Marquee (is one of a kind!)

Our all-season marquee is perfect for all kinds of events but more so weddings. The white canvas means couples are free to do what they wish and really put their creativity to work. Have you seen our bar? We sometimes have to remind ourselves that it is an actual marquee because it is that beautiful. We can arrange the marquee to your preference, this includes moving the dance floor! We have a full kitchen towards the aft of the marquee, meaning your food is cooked fresh and is served within minutes to your guests. The toilets within the marquee are the only hand-painted loos in Ireland. No photo will do them justice. You have to see them for yourself! There really is no reason for your guests to leave. The views of the Walled Garden from our Marquee are picture perfect. Your guests can relax, unwind and go for a stroll before getting their dancing shoes on.
