Dublin Magician Rua

Wedding At Tinakilly House

One of my absolute favourite venues to perform in is Tinakilly Country House Hotel in Rathnew, Co. Wicklow. It’s just a quick drive outside Dublin, yet it has all of the qualities of a secluded country home hidden in the middle of nowhere. The venue itself is much bigger than it looks from the outside, with a separate building outdoors in which they usually set up the dining area. Outside, you can catch views of the beautiful Dublin bay in the distance, and on a sunny day, it’s really spectacular.

I recently performed at a Wedding there for Aileen and Ian (who were beyond lovely!), and the set-up was a little bit different than usual, as the couple opted to have their entire reception outdoors on a lovely green area that’s close to the entrance to the main House. Sofas, chairs, rugs and tables were neatly placed around the area, and it all felt very ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea party’, which worked an absolute treat, and everybody had plenty of room to move around without feeling restricted by their surroundings – something that can often happen in small hotel reception areas. As always, the staff were all consummate professionals, and eager to help and accommodate each and every guest as though they themselves were the VIPs for the day.



On this particular day, I was fortunate enough to be snapped by the lovely Dasha Caffrey – one of the leading Wedding photographers in Ireland – and those photos can be seen below (These cannot be used elsewhere without permission from Dasha herself). For all of the other wonderful photos, they’re available for your viewing on Dasha’s Blog Post about the day here.


All in all, it was one of my favourite weddings to perform at, and as you can see from the photos, I had a wonderful time doing what I do best for Aileen and Ian’s family and friends.
