Horetown House is a 10 bedroom Palladian style Country House in rural Wexford, built in 1692 and restored and refurbished over the last 10 years.  The house has a long and colourful history but today it has become famous for its laid back casual elegance, and as a unique wedding venue.  

We create private weddings that are just a little different, with a permanent all year round pole tent Marquee and a beautiful civil ceremony room.  We also have a traditional Irish Bar hidden in our cellar with a full hotel license which means you will have a residents bar for those harmonious late night sing alongs! Add 10 acres of private gardens and we have all the ingredients for a beautiful wedding and a great session.

Our Story

Horetown is a traditional house of it’s time, built in 1692, boasting a grand reception hall, two reception rooms on the ground floor, 10 luxurious bedrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors and the original wine cellar which is now home to our traditional Irish pub. The house has been restored for comfortable living and longs to be full of people having a wonderful time.   Horetown is the perfect size for a really great house party, and we know just how to make it happen.

Kate worked with her brother Tom to restore the house, choosing elegant wallpapers and soft warm paints, opting for old fashioned tiles and timber paneling and completing the house with luxurious fabrics and feather filled sofas and duvets.  Kates' daughter Niamh works on styling and decor, adding bits and pieces to the house and gardens to keep things quirky and homemade.  Tom can usually be found in the bar or on the lawnmower or wrestling Jake off the red carpet.

We are usually in the office between 10am and 5pm during the week, and in wedding season we seem to be here all the time, but between maintaining the house and our private weddings we often have to close the door so please do call in advance if you would like to visit.
