Weddings at The Keadeen Hotel

By Mark Donovan Photography
It’s safe to say that I have photographed well over fifty wedding celebrations at The Keadeen Hotel in Newbridge. This four star family run hotel is one of the most popular wedding venues in Leinster area. The O’Loughlin family opened the Keadeen nearly fifty years ago and in that time thousands of couples have celebrated their big day there. I recently covered a wedding there, where both the bride and groom’s parents had also celebrated their weddings at the Keadeen.

The Ballroom-The Jewel In The Crown!!

This must be the magnificent ballroom. The ballroom has room to hold 380 guests with ease. Crystal chandeliers combined with uplighters create the perfect setting for your wedding banquet. No wonder this ballroom won “Best Ballroom” in 2018 and 2019 in the RSVP wedding venue awards.


The Keadeen hotel’s award winning gardens are the prefect setting for any outdoor civil ceremony. The hotel sits among eight acres of the most beautiful manicured gardens. Everywhere you look there is a burst of colour.

The hotel has plenty of choice when it comes suites to hold the ceremony. The garden room is my personal favourite. This room over looks the main garden and is just magnificent.


The recently refurbished bridal suite is the perfect place for the Bride and Groom.With over 75 bedrooms there are plenty of options for your guests. For the bigger weddings there are several B&B’s close by.

A Recent Wedding at the Keadeen Hotel

Clíodhna & Gavin decided to book The Keadeen Hotel for their summer wedding in 2019. Gavin and the groomsmen were getting ready at the hotel so I started my day there. Twenty minutes with the boys is usually plenty. A quick drive around to Clíodhnas mother’s house where she was surrounded by her best friends and loving family. The ceremony was taking place in St Conleths church in Newbridge town.

After the church we grabbed a few photos in the church grounds but left most of the photography for The Keadeen gardens. The sun was splitting the trees when we arrived at the Keadeen were most of the guests were enjoying refreshments on the lawns. Just look at the fun that was had at this fabulous wedding. If your considering booking The Keadeen Hotel for your wedding stop right now and just book it.
