Award-winning, Intimate & Fairytale

The Front Hall has a magnificent Barrel ceiling by Richard Cassels, parquet floors and a sweeping Italian marble staircase by George Wilkinson. This room is where guests gather to have their champagne reception on arrival along with canapes. The Library and The Morning Room are also opened up for guests to enjoy and relax in.

The Drawing Room, which leads off from the Entrance Hall is where the dining takes place for smaller weddings. We can cater for up to 60 guests in this very intimate setting where there is a beautiful 18th century hand painted ceiling. This room adjoins The Long Gallery where dining also takes place for larger numbers also seating 60 guests. In effect, the Drawing Room and Long Gallery becomes one large L-shaped room with the top table in the corner of the L allowing all guests to see the wedding party. The maximum number of guests we cater for in Westport House is 120 people.

The Long Gallery is where the dancing or post dinner party takes place.

You may use some of the rooms in the house or exclusively hire the entire house – depending on your specific needs. We would love to discuss this further with you. Please contact us on
