Whether you're a sustainably-minded couple, a self-confessed foodie, a gardening enthusiast, or none of the above, you'll be instantly charmed by Airfield Estate in South Dublin. A working urban farm located in Dundrum, just 15 minutes from the city centre, it's a hopelessly pretty, sprawling sanctuary that also serves as a one-of-a-kind wedding venue. Hidden away on 38 acres of farmland, you'll find lots of lovely ceremony and reception space options, including a light-filled Victorian library, and a chic restaurant. Well-suited to intimate weddings of 50, all the way up to larger bashes of 110, Airfield Estate is one of our favourite Dublin venues, so we hope you enjoy taking a digital tour in this post!
The Space at Airfield Estate
One of the best things about Airfield Estate is just how versatile it is - the team work really hard in collaboration with each couple to create a unique day that perfectly suits their personalities. And you're really spoiled for choice when it comes to ceremony and reception spaces. You can exchange vows under the rose-climbing pergola in The Walled Garden, in minimalist haven The Hive, or in the stunningly bright library room at Airfield House. And yes, Airfield Estate is fully licenced for civil ceremonies! For your reception, there's the aforementioned library, which seats up to 52 guests, or the airy Overends Kitchen, which seats up to 110 guests.
The Vibe at Airfield Estate Weddings
There are two words that we always use about the wedding offering at Airfield Estate - gorgeous and informal. In warmer months, guests can even enjoy the beautiful gardens and couples can make the most of that space for their wedding portraits, as we saw in Ronan and Kathy's flower-filled wedding. The team are also masters of the all-day reception, which means that your guests can enjoy mini dishes throughout the day while they explore Airfield House and the Walled Garden. If you like the idea of a garden party-style wedding with a difference, this could well be the spot for you! And while there's no accommodation on site, the team will happily provide you with a list of lovely nearby hotels and rental homes for you and your guests.
