To help inspire you to choose Bishop's Gate Hotel as the venue for your special celebration we have featured below some of the reasons why we think you should choose our hotel:

1.       We are a Licensed Ceremony Venue

Both our Hervey Library & Northern Counties Ballroom are licensed to host wedding ceremonies for up to 120 guests. This allows couples to host their full day celebrations in one venue eliminating the time involved when travelling between locations and allowing you to spend more time with your loved ones.

2.       Central location

Our location in the heart of the Walled City offers many benefits to couples planning their special day:

-          We have a range of churches & cathedrals close by if you prefer to opt for a religious ceremony.

-          There are lots of beautiful photo opportunities in the city centre such as the historic city walls, Craft Village, Peace Bridge & St Columb's Park.

-          For guests who may be travelling from further afield to attend your celebrations, our hotel is an ideal base for guests to explore both the city, Donegal and North Coast whilst they are in the area for your special occasion.

3.       Dedicated & experienced team.

Our Events Team have many years of experience of looking after wedding celebrations.

Our dedicated Wedding Coordinators Claire & Donna are available to guide couples through every step of the planning process from the initial show round through to the day itself. Our Operations Team lead by Keith will help to suggest room layout options, décor styles and act as Master of Ceremonies on the day of your wedding to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

4.       Stunning Edwardian Architecture

Originally built in the 1800’s our grade B1 listed building lends itself to some stunning wedding portrait opportunities.

Many of the weddings we have hosted to date have opted not to travel to another location for portraits, instead choosing to have family and bridal party photographs on our stunning grand staircase. Memories to treasure for a lifetime!

To view more images from previous weddings hosted in our hotel just speak to our team for access to our online photo galleries.

5.       Extensive menu selection

Our Executive & Head Chef’s along with their team have crafted our wedding menu selector to include many locally produced ingredients. Our team will always endeavour to tailor menu selections to suit our wedding couples – whether it is a menu option which will embrace a cultural tradition of your family heritage or simply a favourite childhood dessert, speak with our team to find out how we can tailor the menu to your preferences.
