Everything about the Carlingford Brewing Co was perfect. Des and his staff are soooo welcoming. The pizzas are to die for. We had a variety of pizzas, a selection of... read more chips and not one complaint. It is the most beautiful and tranquil setting, so good that we told Des that we would be back....... but we really want to keep it a secret and tell no one about it. 🤐😉

We had our wedding reception at The Old Mill on 02/10/20 and so glad we did! We fell in love on our first viewing and knew it was the... read more perfect venue for us. Des (the owner) was a dream to work with, he was always quick to respond to any queries and definitely knew his stuff. On our big day, Des & his staff really went above and beyond for ourselves and our guests, we really couldn’t have wished for more...their hospitality is second to none with our guests even commenting on how well it was run. The whole day flowed and went without any problems - honestly can’t thank them enough especially in these unprecedented times!
The venue itself is amazing, it is rustic and full of charm with beautiful grounds providing the perfect backdrop for photos (it even comes with a working mill). Any bride and groom looking for a laid back/non-traditional wedding then look no further, this is the place for you!
Our family and friends all commented on how beautiful the venue is and how lovely Des and his staff are. It really wasn’t your typical wedding - which just added to the experience. We all haven’t stopped talking about it and I am sure we will for years to come as it was just that good.
We have also visited the Tain Taproom, which does the most delicious wood fire pizza (which we had as our evening food - where would you get it?!) and freshly brewed beer! We already can’t wait to get back!
Highly recommended and most definitely worth a visit. 5*.

A group of 13 of us went to the brewery. They gave us a tour at the last minute. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. They altered the menu to... read more suit the vegans/vegetarians in the group. The beers were lovely and the food was gorgeous, particularly the wood-fire pizza that is cooked in front of you.

People always say your wedding day is the best day of your life, well after we had our wedding at The Old Mill we can truly say it was. ... read more
After discoverying The Old Mill on facebook and arranging a viewing with Des, we couldnt believe we found such a gem on our doorstep. Des was so welcoming and made us feel so at ease. He walked us through how the whole day would go. His love and passion for what he created was hard not to fall in love too. We booked it on the spot.
Fast forward a few months when we met Dearbhaile the event coordinator, she helped us plan our dream day down to the last detail. Nothing was too much trouble and by the end of it she felt like part of the family.
We had our drinks reception in the Tap Room and the musician played, outside just making it all feel very relaxed. The September sunshine and the craft beers just made it extra special. The rustic decor is so unique, our guests are still talking about it. One of my favourite things about the Old Mill is the grounds. We got some stunning pictures. The place has to seen to be believed , magical.
The staff are out of this world. Des has put together a fantastic team and they seem to really love what they do.
The day exceeded all expectations, We just wish we could do it all over again.
Thanks Des, Dearbhaile and all the team, You really made our dreams come true xxx

Carlingford Brewery, The Old Mill
Back in early 2018 my sister tagged me in a post on Twitter from Lovin... read more Dublin that said, “You can now get married in a rustic brewery on the Cooley Peninsula and it’s SO FAB” and at this point we hadn’t visited one wedding venue, The Old Mill was the first on our hit list. We made a viewing appointment with Des and set out on the road to Carlingford.
Everything about The Old Mill is magical, from the moment you arrive you get a sense of being somewhere very special, soaked in history and completely unique. All it took was that one visit and we had fallen in love. We knew instantly this is where we wanted to celebrate our marriage.
If, like us, you are not a fan of lavish, OTT and lots of white wedding venues then you will love the warm and rustic décor of the Old Mill. The location is private, and the land is just stunning, especially when the sun is shining.
Words cannot describe the fantastic team who run The Old Mill, but we will try because it is the least we can do to thank them for everything. Des (Owner of Carlingford Brewing Company) is passionate, energetic and a complete joy to be around. Dearbhaile, wedding co-ordinator extraordinaire, is everything a laid-back bride and groom need in their lives, trust me she is just wonderful. The rest of the team at The Old Mill could not do enough for us on the day, I never, not once, saw the bottom of an empty glass of wine in my hand.
The Old Mill was everything we hoped for and more, I wouldn’t change a thing.

I'm finally home from my honeymoon and can sit down to write this review with enough thought put into it. My husband and I got married at the Old Mill... read more on 31st August and it was the best day ever! Des, Dearbhaile and all the crew at Carlingford Brewing went above and beyond for our friends and family. The venue was amazing with all it's nooks and crannies, we felt like we were home from home. The staff made sure there was plenty of food and drink to go around all day, and that everyone was comfortable throughout the day. When the night came to an end they made sure that everyone got home safe and sound. I honestly can't think of one bad thing to say because it's just that... there isn't any. Thank you Des, Dearbhaile and Co for making our wedding day "the best wedding that I've been at in years" as many people said to me in the days and weeks afterwards. All our love, Leanne & Sean Mathews xx
