Discretion is top priority, so don’t worry if you are keeping everything a complete secret!

Asking for someone’s hand in marriage certainly is a special occasion, and what better way to pop the question than in one of Ireland’s most luxurious hotels!

Slieve Donard Hotel & Spa

With a backdrop of the Mourne Mountains on one side and a golden strand of beach and Irish Sea bordering another, there’s no finer place to get down on one knee!


Whether it’s a proposal by the sea, up on the Mourne Mountains overlooking the hotel or somewhere more private within their six acres of immaculate private grounds, the Slieve Donard is the perfect venue for an engagement.

Set the tone with a welcome hamper containing a bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne, chocolates and sweet treats. Or what about spoiling your partner with a signature treatment in the Slieve Donard’s luxury spa, with gorgeous facials, massages and body treatments on offer.

Culloden Estate & Spa

You can’t get a finer setting than in a five star setting to propose to that special someone in your life. Ask the all important question at the Culloden Estate and Spa.


A special occasion requires a special venue, and what could be more special than 12 acres of beautiful secluded gardens and woodland, standing high on the slopes of the Holywood Hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the County Antrim Coastline?

Whether it’s a proposal in one of their 24 suites, somewhere in the estate grounds or the drawing room the options are endless and will all be a fitting setting to mark the occasion. You can upgrade here too,

Grand Central Hotel

Take your relationship to the next level, with a proposal at the Grand Central Hotel with unrivalled views across the city and beyond.

Asking that special someone to be part of your life forever demands the grandeur that only the Grand Central Hotel can provide.

Imagine proposing on the 23rd floor in the spectacular Observatory, overlooking the city, after exquisite dining in the Seahorse Restaurant or in the private setting of your luxurious bedroom with it’s own breathtaking view. How could your partner ever say no?

Who can say no to strawberries and truffles as a surprise, the perfect accompaniment for a bottle of bubbly to kick start your celebrations. You can also arrange for a special rose petal turndown service for after dinner, what a way to surprise your partner!

Ballygally Castle

With some of the most romantic views in Northern Ireland, if you’re planning to propose to that special someone in your life, Ballygally Castle should be top of your list.


Asking for someone’s hand in marriage is certainly a special occasion and where could be more special than the only 17th century building still used as a residence in Northern Ireland today?

Whether it’s a proposal by the sea, along the golden sands of Ballygally Bay or if you want somewhere more private with their beautiful walled gardens and stream within the castle walls, Ballygally Castle is the perfect venue for an engagement.

Romance and flowers go hand in hand – you can order champagne, flowers and chocolates to surprise your loved one. You can also upgrade your room to a Junior Suite at Ballygally Castle, overlooking the Irish sea.


Book an overnight stay in any of these award-winning hotels and let their events teams make it extra special for you!
