4 Best Wedding Venues in Meath

Most Popular Meath Wedding Venues

County Meath is just north of Dublin in the province of Leinster. It is known as the royal county and is famous for its archaeological and historic sites including The Hill of Tara, Newgrange and Knowth. Meath is home to some of the most popular wedding venues in Ireland due to it’s proximity to Dublin and beauty of the landscape. Most venues are located near historic towns of Navan, Kells and Trim making it easy for guests to travel and find accommodation.

I’m a wedding photographer in Meath and I have captured some beautiful weddings here! We are lucky to have these unique wedding venues like country houses, barns and marquees providing great experience to engaged couples.

Below you will find a list of my favourite and the best wedding venues in Meath along with a short description, photos from real weddings and recent blog posts.
