Ireland Destination Wedding Cost
A recent survey taken in Ireland showed that the average cost of a wedding in Ireland is approx $20,000. Now you must remember that the average number of guests at an Irish wedding is around 200 which can lead to a lot of extra costs. You can, however, plan a wedding on a smaller budget of $5000 all the way up to 100’s of thousands of dollars depending on your tastes and financial status.
If you plan to elope in Ireland on a budget, we can help you achieve that. If you prefer an all-inclusive Irish castle wedding, then we would love to arrange that too.
The currency used in Ireland is the Euro (€), which makes it easy for you to travel around the rest of the EU states if you plan a long holiday in Europe. At the time of writing, $1 equals €0.89 (89 cents). All prices you see quoted in shops, restaurants and services include the VAT (rate of 23%) unless otherwise stated. The price of goods and services is cheaper in the Southern Ireland counties (Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Clare, Tipperary, Waterford) compared to Dublin, the capital city of Ireland. This is another great reason to have your destination wedding in South Ireland.
Best Time In Ireland To Have A Wedding
This is usually a personal choice, but if you would like at least a 50% chance of a clear and sporadically sunny day, you should consider the months May to September. Between October and April, the weather becomes very unpredictable and you tend to see a lot more rainfall, however, it still makes the country glisten with natural beauty. Thankfully, due to the North Atlantic Drift as well as mountain ranges around the coasts of Ireland, the Irish weather may be changeable, but it is never extreme.
For instance, it is very rare to see snow and also very rare to get more than a week of consistently high temperatures (85°F+) although when it happens it is usually in July and August and it is a wonderful experience.
- In spring (February to April), the average highest temperatures range from 46 to 54°F
- In summer (May to July), the averages for highest temperatures are between 64 and 68°F.
- The warmest months are July and August ad you are guaranteed to get 18 hours of daylight.
- In autumn, (August to October) highest temperatures hit between 64 and 57°F.
When having a wedding in Ireland, you always have to consider the season. Thankfully we have planned weddings in all seasons and know the tricks and tips to ensure that the weather is nothing but an afterthought.

This ensures that your wedding day is full of positivity, fantastic service and many happy and everlasting memories.
