Civil Ceremonies

Carton House,  a HSE Registered venue for Civil Ceremonies, is the perfect location to celebrate your Civil Partnership.

Carton House can cater for on-site Ceremonies for up to 300 people. There are 2 locations on site where Ceremonies can take place:

For numbers of 80 and under we can offer use of a private room in the original Carton House residence. We have no minimum number but a maximum of 80 people can be accommodated for the ceremony in our largest room.

For larger numbers we can offer our Carton Suite ballroom for civil ceremonies which can cater for up to 300 people for a civil ceremony.

For couples wishing to have a Civil Partnership in the Republic of Ireland you must first make an appointment to give Notification of Intention to Marry to a Registrar. You must give at least 3 months notification to a Registrar in person and this is done by appointment only. It is advisable that once you have your wedding date booked that you make an appointment with a Registrar as soon as possible to ensure availability.

To do this, couples should contact your local Civil Registration Office or Health Service Executive (HSE) headquarters.
