Love is well and truly in the air this time of year, especially with everyone we know getting engaged. There’s no doubt Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding inspired many lovebirds, but unfortunately, we can’t get married in St. George’s Chapel.

Luckily, Ireland is full of stunning hotels that are bound to take your breath away on your special day.

This Black Friday the four-star Hotel Kilkenny will release 12 dates in 2019 to brides and grooms-to-be with a 20 percent discount on their entire wedding package.

Renowned for its attention to detail and premium wedding service, the four-star luxury venue which has been voted one of the top 20 wedding venues in Ireland and one of the top five wedding venues in Leinster is a chic hotel located in magical Kilkenny City.
