The Card Room

An intimate ceremony can be held in the  Card Room underneath the magnificent  domed ceiling which dates back to 1840. The exquisite plasterwork was created by the Lafranchini Brothers in the 1750s and you can simple feel the history in this room.

This space then transforms  later for your evening reception where guests  can dance the night away. As the wedding meal and dancing are happening in different rooms it means the band or DJ can setup away from your guests and means your first dance will always be on time!

Family Photos at Stehen’s Green Club

The Card room is perfectly setup for family photos either following the reception or shortly before the Dinner call. It’s a large bright room with high ceiling so can accomodate photo groups of any size.

Family photos could also be taken across the road in Stephens Green Park but this will take a bit more time and I would recommend keeping the groups to immediate family only if considering this. Also remember that the park can get very busy at the weekend.

The club can take wedding parties from 40 and up to 96 people.
