Thank you so much to Adrian, Deirdre, Eavan and all the team at Mount Druid for helping us to create our perfect wedding! The venue was amazing all of our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the yurts,the beautiful barns and the gardens. Organising everything with you during the lead-up was a breeze, you were so accommodating and relaxed on the big day, there were no problems at all. The Tin Chapel was a fantastic setting for our ceremony and the procession there of all the guests is one of my favourite memories of the day. 10/10, 5 stars and 2 thumbs up, you are wonderful people who have created a wonderful place!

Adrian, Deirdre & Eavan the rest of the team at Mount Druid,As soon as we drove through the gates of Mount Druid on that rainy January day and met Adrian and Deidre for the first time we knew we had found the place where we would get married. At the time Mount Druid was a dream and one we invested 100% in (We were the first ever wedding on site). We knew that the vision they had was one we were looking for and boy we were RIGHT!We wanted our wedding blessing to be a pure escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in peaceful surroundings, with a beautiful setting and exquisite grounds and Mount Druid is just that. We hope that any couple that goes in search something different, unique and untraditional makes a trip to Mount Druid as I don't think they'll go much further. It's not only a place of awe on a wintery or summery day, it's Adrian, Deirdre & Eavan and the entire team at Mount Druid that make it so perfect.It truly was the most amazing weekend of our lives…. From hosting our wedding blessing in the newly built chapel, to drinking Pimms at the lakehouse with a string quartet playing on the decking, dining under the stars in the converted barns with the fires roaring and the candles lit. Our guest relaxed in the retro sittingroom and enjoyed 99 ice creams from the local ice cream van. People meandered up the walled garden and danced on the patio until the wee early hours. Later our nearest and dearest got to escape to old fashioned houses on the ground or authentic Mongolian yurts and hand built shepherd huts.If we could do it all again we wouldn't change a thing! Which is testament to Adrian, Deirdre & Eavan at Mount Druid. I wish them all the best wishes in the world and we feel excitement in our bellies and a smile crept onto our faces every time we think of a happy couple agreeing to host their wedding at Mount Druid, all we would say is welcome to the club, buckle up and enjoy the ride!

When planning our wedding party we were hoping for a venue with a difference but also with charm and character, the guys from Mount Druid really exceeded our expectations last weekend!!! The barn with all its amazing rustic & beautiful features & the gorgeous walled garden (we were blessed with the weather) and the fireplace/BBQ area made all our guest feel so comfortable everyone just relaxed and soaked in the ambiance.The real highlight was the BBQ food, and our friends & family are still talking about the organic lamb burgers (from MD farm) and the gorgeous salads and relishes beetroot humus + pesto to name a few. The BBQ was followed by delicious rhubarb crumble/apple pie all with fruits coming from MD Gardens!Our band the Classic Beatles rocked the place and the dancefloor in the Barn was just perfect for our 100+ guests! Throughout the whole day the service by the MD Gang was bang on and we could'nt have asked for anymore…We definitely would like to say a big well done' and thank you to everyone @ MD we'll be definately back!!Mark and Sandee

We love this place to the ends of the earth and back…Say what? Yes, we literally went to the ends of the world and back,looking at venues across the globe before finding our perfect venue,just 10 miles from home.We were incredibly lucky to have found Mount Druid, by chance, three months before our scheduled big day. We had booked somewhere else, but the instant we arrived at Mount Druid and met with Eavan, Adrian,Deirdre, and their team, we knew we had to change our plans. A week later, we printed and sent out our new invitations to our guests.The sky is the limit when planning your big day here. Our wedding day, was so incredibly relaxed, just as we had set out for it to be. We had a humanist ceremony in the Village Chapel, afternoon tea at the Lake House and Upper Barn, and had our wedding feast in the Main Barn and BBQ area. Our wedding feast consisted of country garden vegetable soup in a bowl made from bread, followed by a choice of venison ragu,roasted lamb, roasted chicken, fresh sole stuffed with salmon mouse,wild mushroom risotto; followed by bread and butter pudding (my grandmothers recipe) and apple crumble, and finished with a cheese board of organic cheeses served with a glass of port; all served with a selection of organic wines. All food was sourced locally and where possible, organic. Our guests then danced the night away under the stars, and had a late night snack from the BBQ, before seeking a peaceful sleep in their cosy yurts and sheppard huts.Mount Druid is exquisite, in our opinion. If you're looking for an alternative and private venue where you can make your own rules such as starting times, photography locations and menu; and, work with a team who will share your vision, and bend-over-backwards to help make your dream wedding happen, then a visit to Mount Druid is a must. Mount Druid really is the nicest venue in the world. Where else would you have a crew from the National Geographic hanging out the day before your wedding!
