The Five Best Places to Elope in Ireland & Northern Ireland

Ireland is a dream location for your elopement, with its rugged coast line, ancient Castles & rolling green hills it makes for a fairy tale setting. Here are in my opinion the five best places to elope in Ireland.

Best places to elope in Ireland

1. Dunluce Castle, Co Antrim

Number one on my list would have to be Dunluce Castle which is situated on the County Antrim Coastline in Northern Ireland. Built in the 1500’s this medieval ruin casts a dramatic & imposing shadow on the Causeway Coast line. The ancient ruin was actually built on the rocks of the coastal cliffs. As far as adventure elopement go it doesn’t get much more epic than this! Click here to have a look at an elopement that happened on the cliff edge right in front of Dunluce Castle.

2. Kinbane Head, Co Antrim

Rugged cliffs, an ancient Castle & a waterfall! Not many places can offer as much awesome stuff in one location. Number 2 on my list is Kinbane Head. This place is a hidden gem,  nestled in the Causeway Coastline of Northern Ireland. One of the best thing about this place is that it’s not insta famous so you won’t be surrounded by tourists whilst you’re saying your vows. There a small hike down the steps and you’ll see Kinbane Castle perched on the headland that juts into the sea, when you get to the bottom of the steps you’ll be overwhelmed by the landscape, it feels like something from another planet. The amount of variety this one place offers makes it a dream location for a photographer. To take a look at this incredible place click here.

Imagine saying your vows on the edge of a cliff 214 metres (702ft) above the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The Cliffs of Moher have to be seen to be believed and that’s why they are 3rd in this list of the best places to elope in Ireland.
