The Johnstown Estate
The Johnstown Estate has always been a popular choice for weddings and leisure breaks. The house sits on acres of greenery and forestry. There is no shortage of locations for wedding pictures. The house itself is a restored 18th-century Georgian residence and has many of the original features. When you arrive, the tone is set by the impressive exterior which follows right through to the reception area. The decor is a blend of vintage and contemporary. Weddings parties have a choice of arriving through the main hotel entrance or the private wedding entrance. I liked the wedding entrance as there are a beautiful self-playing grand piano, private drinks reception area, and civil ceremony location.
The O’Rorke Suite is the wedding ballroom and it can adapt in many forms to suit your wedding size and requirements. It comes fully equipped with all of the wedding decor that you will need but is also neutral to allow you to sprinkle your own style. The Lady Margaret Suite blew me away. This is where you stay on the night of your wedding and it is like having your own luxury apartment for the day! There are 3 rooms and a hall and the bedroom boasts a super king bed which you literally melt into the bed. The Spa can do your make up and there is a hairdresser on site. Very handy for you and your guests.
