Weddings and Events
Clandeboye courtyard is the perfect wedding reception venue. It is yours for the day and we can assist in making it a unique and special occasion. We can arrange a variety of activities in the Courtyard to entertain your guests.

Clandeboye Estate is one of the most beautiful private country estates in the country and a stunning location for special events and weddings in Northern Ireland.

The Courtyard at Clandeboye has been carefully transformed to create a picturesque and highly flexible wedding venue that offers the perfect location for your day, whatever your requirements may be.

Situated within easy reach of Belfast and the City Airport, the estate is an exclusive countryside haven that has been home to the Blackwood family for over 400 years.

Once upon a time in the heart of County Down there was a herd of very happy pedigree cows…. rolling hills, acres of fresh green pastures, warm dry barns for when there’s a chill in the air and a Lady owner who loves them so much she paints their portraits!

It’s no surprise that Willow, Cecilia, Mabel and the other pampered girls at the historic Clandeboye Estate produce vast amounts of deliciously creamy milk that is used to produce Northern Ireland’s only locally made cows’ milk yoghurt.

Clandeboye Courtyard dates from the early 18th Century and is set in the heart of the historic Clandeboye Estate, whose magnificent entrance and driveway enhance any occasion.

The Courtyard itself measures about 50 metres by 50 metres and has a fascinating central dove cote. It is fully enclosed by the various buildings and rooms listed below to provide a sheltered area that is used for outdoor events all year round. It is even floodlit for evening events. Marquees can be erected in the Courtyard to extend the capacity of the main halls.

We breed high yielding, long lasting Holstein and Jersey cows. We have won many awards including Supreme Champion at the Irish National Holstein Show and Exhibitor Bred Champion at the Royal Ulster.

The Clandeboye Herd consists of approximately 70 Holstein and 30 Jersey cows. Cows have been milked at Clandeboye since the 1950s. There was some early interest in pedigree breeding, but it was not until 1992 that the Clandeboye prefix came back into use.
