Built in the 19th Century by a London Architect – Thomas Hopper for the family of the 2nd Earl of Gosford, Gosford castle is a magnificent Norman revival style building surrounded by 590 acres of Gosford Forest Park. WW2 and the Troubles left the castle in disrepair. We have restored it to its former glory! It is now a stunning hotel boasting 25 bedrooms, 2 gorgeous reception rooms for weddings, dining and cultural events, Games of Thrones Themed Bar with live music and a tea room. You can read more about the castle’s history here.
With only minutes drive to the town of Markethill, Cathedral City of Armagh, less than an hour to Belfast, 1.40 to The Dark Hedges, under 2 hours to Giant’s Causeway, under 2 hours to the City of Derry and only an hour and a half to Dublin. Gosford Castle is strategically placed to cover the best places of interest on the island of Ireland.
We are also pleased to be able to offer Game of Thrones tours across the country.

Fabulous Wedding Packages & Offers
Have Yourself a Castle Wedding
If you have ever attended more than one wedding, you will understand exactly what we are trying to accomplish. Traditionally, weddings always run to the same format.
Food and entertainment are pretty much the same in most venues. In most cases after the ceremony the guests are left to their own devices until dinner call. If you fancy more than a Sunday roast followed by a DJ or a function band then Gosford Castle is the place for you. If you want your guests to be fed, watered, and entertained throughout the day and have less time for selfies and social media then give us a call. We’ll give them bread and circuses while you are away taking photos and video. They wont even notice you are gone!
- All the main castle rooms still retain the original functioning fire-places.
- Our bridal suite has a four-poster bed and an all year round rooftop hot tub.
- All Wedding Packages included a supervised soft playroom for kids and a designated gaming den for teens.
With the amount of money being spent on weddings, why do they have to be the same, why cant yours be different, after all, we are all unique. Let us take care of as many things as possible. Your venue, meals, entertainment, accommodation, photography, videography, your transport etc.
