Civil Ceremonies

The Banner Suite in the Old Ground is one of the top Civil Ceremony venues in Clare. With high ceilings, beautiful natural light, and enchanting history, this room is ideally suited for civil ceremonies. The Old Ground Hotel is licensed to hold Civil Ceremonies. 

Gone are the days that require you to attend a ceremony in the local registrar's office. Our license allows us to create the perfect day for you without the process of seeking out church venues that can sometimes create more scheduling issues than anything else. We take the stress out of the day and planning by allowing you and your guests to enjoy a perfectly intimate ceremony in our private suite.

Civil Licence

The hotel's Civil license means that you can both marry and celebrate your wedding reception in its historic surroundings.

Should you wish to get married by Civil Ceremony at the Old Ground Hotel, you should first contact the Civil Registration Office at 061 483907, regarding the availability of dates and intended arrangements. 

                                    Please note that there is no longer a requirement to live in the district where you wish to get married. Once approval has been granted for your Civil Marriage Ceremony to take place, you may proceed with the organisation of your Wedding Reception.
