Yes you read it right, we have just been to visit a new + exciting wedding venue.....
We recently went to take a look at a new wedding venue called The Grocery
The Grocery is situated in the center of the picturesque town of Tyrrellspass, Co. Westmeath. It is a family run business and comprises of a host of buildings and amenities including a Bar, Lounge, small grocery shop + cafe, accommodation, outbuildings, large garden, courtyard, The Barn and Orangery.
It is a listed building seeped in history and charm. It was built by Jane Countess of Belevedere in the mid 1800s and retains many of the original and quirky features.
Weddings are held off the main street at the back of the grocery and cafe. There is a separate entrance where you find hidden away, the most beautiful courtyard, outbuildings, Barn, large landscaped garden and Orangery at your disposal. The space can have up to 120 people, it is very flexible and can hold ceremonies, drinks reception, main reception and music and dancing, how you use the space is up to you.
Both the barn and orangery come with a full licence bar, wood burning stoves and lounge areas. There is also a full catering kitchen, they have an on-site caterer but you can also bring your own caterer if that is your preferred choice.
What is unique about The Grocery is that it has been lovingly and painstakingly restored by its owner. Both the accommodation and buildings are full of character, comfort and impressive details. It oozes old world charm while still having all the modern comfort and up to date facilities you require.
We loved everything about this venue! We were very impressed with the restoration details, fun and quirky atmosphere and the overall flexibility of the space. It is well worth consideration, if you are looking for a venue with a difference, then a visit to The Grocery will not disappoint!!
Here are some photos to give you a sneak peak of all it has to offer...
