The Wicklow Escape deemed best Eco Wedding venue to say “I do”

Posted on 17th February 2022

THE Wicklow Escape in Donard has been announced as the Best Eco Venue for weddings at the Wedding Venue Awards 2021.

The Awards showcase and celebrate the best Irish wedding venues and special places and spaces to say “I Do” and host big or more intimate days. These awards recognise the top venues for their excellence, high quality, exceptional service and unique offerings that make those special days truly special.

The judges who crowned The Wicklow Escape as Best Eco Venue felt it was the perfect fit for couples who dream of an intimate wedding with exquisite food in a stylish venue secluded in nature. To-be-weds can choose from exclusive ceremonies in their historic long hall or immersed in the natural woodland setting or on the mountain deck in the foothills of the Wicklow mountains and Sugarloaf. Perfect for nature lovers and foodie couples, and those who love the idea of getting married with a small group of your nearest and dearest in an environmentally-minded venue.

Their locally sourced seasonal menu is thoughtfully created using ingredients grown, farmed or made within a 3-mile radius. Their hyperlocal network of growers and farmers is within a few minutes from their door including Ridgeway Wagyu beef, local lamb, organic fruit and veg, milk and eggs, along with free-range pork and sustainable fish. The Wicklow Escape’s sustainable and zero waste ethos is at the heart of everything they do and that includes always supporting their local community.

Ian Menzies, Co-Owner of, said: “We are truly honoured to be able to celebrate the wedding industry and Irish businesses who have faced unprecedented challenges throughout the pandemic, but have continued to provide exceptional service and ongoing support for their couples.”
