The Plan

About Carlingford

The wedding reception will be held in The Four Seasons Hotel in Carlingford, Co. Louth. This is in the south of Ireland meaning the currency will be in € euros. The ceremony is in the North, though don't worry you won't need your passport.

Carlingford is:

  • 1 hour and 10 minutes from George Best Belfast City Airport
  • 1 hour 15 minutes from Belfast International Airport
  • 1 hour 10 minutes from Dublin Airport.

Carlingford is a coastal town on the Cooley Peninsula, between the waters of Carlingford Lough and the mountain of Slieve Foye, in the northeast of Ireland. It’s known for its oyster farms, medieval buildings and outdoor activities.

Transport to ceremony and back

For guests who will be staying in Carlingford the day before the wedding, there will be a bus available to take guests from Carlingford to the wedding ceremony and back to Carlingford. Please let us know via email at jamesmaireadwedding@gmail.com, or via the RSVP below, if you would like a seat on the bus.

Next day

For anyone still in Carlingford the following day, we plan to have a gathering in one of the pubs. More info to come later, please let us know if you are going to be around.
