Breckenhill: Country Wedding Reception Venue
Breckenhill is a beautiful, country wedding venue in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, perfect for your wedding ceremony and reception. The 18th century listed Georgian house was built by the original mill-owner at the top of the valley where there used to be six textile mills using water power.
We have two barns, the Stone Barn and the Green Barn, each one of which is best appreciated with one of our marquees attached. The best way to enjoy your wedding at Breckenhill is to use both barns as it gives you so many options and your guests will love the fact that you can plan the day using both spaces. We have been creating a dedicated bar area next to the Green Barn which makes it ideal for the evening.
A short distance from the house is the stone barn which we think was built in 1755. It is the hub of Breckenhill as a wedding venue. It is licensed for wedding ceremonies. There is a lot of scope and different spaces you can use, both inside and out.
The indoor space in the Stone Barn is very versatile with 2 floors and you can arrange and decorate to get the look you want for your day. On our suppliers list you will find a wide array of people who know Breckenhill well and help you achieve the look you want.
The Green barn offers a greater space and while it is rustic, it is ideal for you to dress as you wish. Below are some ideas of past wedding decor. It is perfect as a dancefloor and allows plenty of space for a band.
We also offer outdoor wedding ceremonies (weather permitting) and a variety of locations for you to choose from. Whilst you need to have the Stone Barn in reserve, it can be a great way to tie the knot, with views of gardens and even nearby Tildarg Fishery.
Breckenhill is very private and secluded, yet conveniently located, only 30 minutes drive from Belfast, and 15 from Ballymena. We are 25 minutes from Belfast International airport, 30 from the City airport, and 25 from Larne boat terminal. Set in 18 acres in the hills near Ballyclare,
Breckenhill offers a flexible venue in an sympathetically restored 18th century barn, with wood floors and stone walls. There are mature trees, extensive lawns and gardens where you can take photos and relax over a game of croquet!
