Discover the Old Mill

Located in the heart of the Cooley Peninsula and just a one-hour drive from both Dublin and Belfast lies a beautiful secret. A secret unknown for ten years but which has stood for eight centuries. A secret that has served thousands of families over the years and is now re-emerging to serve many families in the future.

The Old Mill, Riverstown. A fully-working Mill for 600 years, this exquisite building is available to book exclusively for your wedding day. If you’re looking for somewhere truly unique that you, your partner, family and friends will never forget, celebrate with us at the Old Mill.

Ceremonies On-Site

Time to say “I do”! The Conservatory at the Old Mill provides the perfect setting for your ceremony or blessing. Set in the peaceful and tranquil surroundings of what was a 14th Century Mill, the exposed brick walls add a timeless touch, infusing our interior with rustic Irish history and character.

In the background, you hear the water cascade across the waterfall which would have turned the Mill wheel in centuries gone by. This is a truly perfect setting to say “I do”.

With a capacity for up to 100 guests, ceremonies can take place anytime and can be performed any day of the week. Outdoor ceremonies and blessings can be held on the grounds for €500.

Drinks Reception at the Old Mill

Weather permitting, the drinks reception can take place around the grounds of the Old Mill. If the weather isn’t on our side, we can set up the drinks reception in our charming Mill Bar and Kiln Area.

Drinks Reception at the Táin Taproom

Another unique option is our Táin Taproom. Located just behind the Old Mill and part of our working brewery, the Taproom is often used as a funky drinks reception area, with spacious outdoor grounds overlooking the stream and the Old Mill. It really is a little hidden gem.

Our very own brewed beers make yet another unique and interesting contribution to your special day – where else can your guests enjoy a Tholsel Blonde or a Taffes Red? We also have a full bar service full of your favourites. Oh did we mention you can even brew your own beer for the big day? A €500 charge applies for the hire of the Taproom on the day of your wedding.

Pizza Extravaganza

Why not let us look after your evening food and provide your guests with authentic wood fired pizzas, using the finest ingredients on a thin base. These pizzas truly are the perfect midnight snack!

Catering Partners

We can accommodate for up to 100 guests on the day. Whether it is a sit-down five-course banquet meal you are looking for, or a laid back BBQ, here at the Old Mill, we have put together a very carefully chosen panel of exciting caterers with whom we have worked with many times over and who we know will always produce the finest food possible.

If you need any assistance at all with the catering aspect of your wedding plans, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Wedding Testimonials

Take a look at what some of our previous wedding couples had to say about their Big Day at Carlingford Brewing Co.

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 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!

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. After discovering 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.

My husband and I got married at the Old Mill 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
