About Us

Beautiful things happen here at ‘The Rocks’, home of Runaway Irish Weddings, a dream venue deep in the South Down countryside and close to the shores of Strangford Lough.

Our couples fall in love (all over again) with the intimate, whimsical and boho vibe of our lovely rural venue. Our team create beautiful days and lifetime memories. We can create anything from simple legal weddings at the gorgeous pondside Summer House, to a two-day stay with awesome food prepared by our award winning chef.

Runaway Irish Weddings is not just another venue. Find out why we are unique.


A good cook is like a sorceress who dispenses happiness.” Schiaparelli 

The Rocks has its own sorceresses, Judy and Julia, who will make you very happy! From an intimate candlelit meal for two at the pondside Summer House to an amazing sit down meal for friends and family in the conservatory.

For more guests? An awesome buffet in the bar or fabulous BBQ by the pondside Summer House. We support local producers by using Irish products.
