There’s very little Kippure Estate can’t help you with when it comes to events and activities.
We’re one of the most versatile venues in the country, and we offer everything from quality corporate team-building to alternative, magical weddings.
Kippure Estate’s location in County Wicklow, Ireland, is second to none when it comes to spectacular settings. We’re surrounded by extensive woodlands, fertile pasture land and dome-shaped mountains as far as the eye can see.
In fact, we’re directly between the wild natural beauty of the Wicklow Mountains and the forested slopes of the Dublin Mountains. When you add the sparkling River Liffey into the equation, which forms the boundary between our 240 acres private estate and Wicklow Mountains National Park, you can see why we’re considered one of Ireland’s finest event venues.
Despite being nestled deep in the heart of the countryside, Kippure Estate is only a 30-minute drive from Dublin. Talk about best of both worlds!
What We Do
Wedding venues don’t get much more unique than Kippure. We’ve got a variety of ceremony and reception rooms available and during your big event, you’ll have the freedom to enjoy our beautiful grounds and beyond. The breath-taking surrounding countryside also offers the most amazing setting for those wedding photos!
As a licensed venue for civil ceremonies, we offer you so much choice when it comes to creating personalised, individual weddings. You could even exchange your vows in our brand new ‘Wedfest’ area, which allows you to host a marquee wedding at a very competitive price. Completely self-contained, it combines the best of both indoor and outdoor weddings, offering outstanding views combined with a sophisticated rustic elegance.
Corporate team building and staff incentive events
Under the umbrella name ‘Kippure Corporate’, we offer a large range of activities, from fun team building games to exhilarating high ropes challenges, to thought-provoking experiential learning activities and inspiring corporate retreats. We also work with a team of training facilitators who can help you achieve your goals, or alternatively, we can collaborate with your chosen management training company instead. Our team can even come to your office, a nearby hotel, or any other location of your choice, if you prefer. In fact, whatever your event, we’re happy to travel to you, and we operate across the entire country!
We’ve got acres of scenic landscape at Kippure Estate, so it’s not surprising that we’re specialists in all forms of outdoor pursuits. We’ve got a large range of outdoor activities for groups to enjoy, whether just for one day or for multi-day events. Test your nerves and get your adrenalin racing on the exciting High Ropes Course, or get the children exploring the grounds on our easy but delightful walks.
Hens and stags looking to experience something a little different on their special celebration will find it here at Kippure. We also run open activity days from May to October, which are specifically for individuals, couples and families.
School Tours and Field Studies
We love nature, and we love helping students learn to love it too. We’re always up to date on the latest educational syllabus and developments, and you can be confident that all activities for school groups are tailored specifically to match learning requirements, whilst providing a fun experience outside the classroom.

In fact, we’re one of Ireland’s leading Residential Activity Centres, and you can rely on us to provide a really unforgettable learning experience.
