Destination wedding at Dromquinna Manor, Kenmare

Real moments reflecting a real you

New Yorkers Grace and Marc,

choose Kenmare for their Destination wedding to Ireland.


Grace and Marc, an amazing couple from New York, decided to tie the knot in the beautiful Dromquinna Manor in Ireland. What makes it even more special is that Grace, Irish born, wanted to come back to where it all began for her. Picture this - rolling green hills, a touch of New York chic, and a whole lot of Irish tradition.

Their wedding wasn't just about saying "I do"; it was a beautiful blend of the city that never sleeps meeting the laidback charm of rural Ireland.

For Irish born Grace, it was coming back to her roots, and for Marc, it was a journey into the heart of his bride's heritage. Their wedding at Dromquinna Manor wasn't just a ceremony; it was a celebration that wove together the vibrancy of New York and the soulful spirit of Ireland, making it a day to remember for everyone who was lucky enough to be there.
