    What an amazing place! The building, gardens and beach are breath-taking. The staff are wonderful, Kieran and James helped us get everything together and kept the day running smoothly. And Steve was on hand to welcome us in to the fort and greeted us as we left. We feel so lucky to have had such an amazing venue for our big day. Well worth the six-hour drive!

    I had the privilege to be a bridesmaid for one of my closest friends’ wedding, held at Polhawn Fort in August 2016. The venue was incredible. So picturesque and magical with its beauty. I have to say it very well might be the most perfect place for a wedding that I have ever seen. I came all the way from Canada and this was something that will stand out in my memory forever!
