Bespoke Weddings at Anocht

Anocht restaurant, directly opposite Kilkenny Castle, is rich in history and full of character. Built in the 1760s as grain stores for the Earl of Ormonde’s horses, the Kilkenny Design Centre was originally part of a large complex of buildings attached to the castle that housed a dairy, stables, coach houses and accommodation for grooms. Cartwheel windows overlook the castle and courtyard while original overhead wooden beams with hanging, linen drops create a unique & sumptuous atmosphere.
Anocht, with its award-winning food, full bar license, first class & friendly service can host intimate weddings for 30 guest’s right up to a luxuriant wedding banquet for 180 guests, all year round. Our promise to you is a dedicated, professional and committed team to assist you in planning all aspects of your day and offer a personal guarantee of bespoke service.
