A Unique Irish Wedding
on the beautiful Aran Islands

The Aran Islands is the perfect destination for a wedding venue in Ireland, from intimate to extravagant, traditional to unexpected. The Aran Islands offer breathtaking wedding receptions which create an unforgettable wedding experience that is uniquely yours and one that your guests will never forget.

The Venue

The Aran Islands are among the most beautiful Irish wedding venues in the world. Inis Mór, the largest of the islands, is the perfect romantically rugged setting for striking photographs of your big day. Our island has many golden and stony beaches teeming with flora and fauna, miles of ancient stone walls, a breathtaking wedding backdrop, mystical ecclesiastic ruins and forts and traditional Irish pubs!
Weddings at the Aran Islands Hotel, Inis Mór are like no other. Your loved ones get to embrace the island way of life, disconnect from daily stresses and immerse themselves in genuine quality time. As you may well know, a true Irish wedding is all about the Craic & Ceoil (fun & music in Irish) and what better place to experience it than our rugged Island in the centre of the Wild Atlantic Way.

Real Weddings

Weddings at the Aran Islands Hotel, Inis Mór are truly unique. On our rugged island, we are renowned for our unique way of life, where age old traditions co-exist comfortably with modern living. You leave your busy life behind you as you step onto the boat and are whisked away to another world on Inis Mór. You can unwind, re-connect and spend quality time with your loved ones, while celebrating in style.

The Ceremony

Whether you’ve dreamed of walking down the aisle in a beautiful church, climbing Dun Aengus Fort for a blessing or having your union blessed on the shoreline with the waves lapping at your feet, Inis Mór can cater for whatever weddings ideas you have, to make this day unique for you and your loved ones.


Some couples choose a bespoke wedding ceremony in our stunning extended marquee with full length windows giving you the perfect backdrop for your traditional, Celtic, civil, humanist or romantic enchanted wedding ceremony Ireland.


Dara Molloy is a local Celtic Priest & Monk living on Inis Mór, who can marry couples legally and is a preferred choice for couples looking for something different and very personalised. Dara specialises in symbolic Celtic Ceremonies at the hotel or at your chosen location on the island.

The Food

We all know the three pillars of a memorable wedding are; Food, Music and the craic. Inis Mór is renowned for the Craic & Ceoil (Fun & Music) but a little know fact is the passion held by locals for sourcing the freshest local produce, that showcases the outstanding quality and variety of the area’s seafood and organically grown vegetables. We lovingly prepare a feast for your guests using locally produced, seasonal and authentic food in our award winning restaurant.

The Accommodation

Our newly extended accommodation is the talk of the island… it has been christened ‘The Village’ by locals! The Village @ The Aran Islands Hotel is a collection of Seaview Bedroom Chalets with island and seaviews. Each chalet has a large glass front that opens up onto a decking area with outdoor furniture, so that you can breathe in the fresh air Inis Mór is famous for.

Balcony rooms are available in the hotel and all accommodations include a tasty breakfast each morning. Our honeymoon suite offers breathtaking views over the bay and harbour, making it the ideal setting to sit back and enjoy the serenity, beauty and hospitality of one of Ireland’s last remaining secret havens and more importantly to be one of the first memories of your marriage.

With a total of 62 bedrooms at the hotel, along with superb locally-run Guest Houses and B&Bs, Inis Mór can comfortably accommodate both intimate and larger wedding celebrations.

What People are saying about us...

We got married on Inis Mor 2 weeks ago and wow! We honestly could not recommend the Aran Islands Hotel highly enough. It's the 'location' wedding that ticks all the boxes. The venue was stunning and Niall and the team could not have been more helpful. Niall was there every step of the way and nothing was a problem for him. From delivering chairs to our ceremony venue at short notice, to minding my speech... the list goes on and on.

Our wedding weekend felt like a magical holiday! Well what can we say except WOW!! The fact we were on an island made our wedding weekend feel like a magical holiday. Our guests did yoga overlooking the sea, went on tours of the island, went for sea dips, explored the lovely little nooks on the island, saying, ate and danced. It was the perfect mix of fun, precious quality time, memories and laughter, so much laughter!!
- Dorothy and Padraig McDonagh, September 2019
We got married here last week and it was amazing from start to finish. We had our reception in the marquee and it was stunning. Niall and all the other staff went above and beyond to accommodate us, they were all so friendly and helpful. We had 10 children with us and they loved it as well, plenty of room to run around. The beach is only a stones throw away and there's also a playground not too far either so there's plenty to keep children entertained.
