Are you looking for a unique wedding venue in Northern Ireland?

How about a brewery wedding? Shall we add in some Georgian charm? Some authentic Irish heritage? Now how about we make it a little more alternative and a lot more relaxed? Sound perfect? Great, give us a call and let’s see how we can help.

We pride ourselves in working alongside each one of our wedding couples to build the best day, tailored for you.

We are located just 15 minutes from Belfast with easy links to the M1.  We are 3 minute walk from Hilden Halt, the train stop on the main Belfast to Dublin line and only 25 minutes from both Belfast City and Belfast International Airport.  However, as soon as you step inside the gates, you will be cast back in time and feel 100 miles away from the hustle and bustle.

Whether you are wanting a brewery wedding for 20 or tipi wedding (or teepee for the uninitiated!) for 180, we are here to help your wedding day be the most perfect day it can be. We operate a one wedding per day policy so the estate is all yours to enjoy.


Please email and we will send you through all the price lists, menus and wine list.

"We got married amidst all the uncertainty of the pandemic, and our plans changed numerous times. Based on friend's recommendation, we contacted Hilden Brewery a matter of weeks before our new intended rescheduled date! On our first viewing of Hilden, it did not disappoint. The grounds were lovely, the venue was so different and quirky we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding reception as soon as we visited. Julie was great at putting us at ease and making sure nothing would be too much trouble. Our guests commented on how good the food was and Hilden's beer went down a storm. Hilden was not our original venue but knowing what we know now this would have been our first choice."

A huge thank you to Hilden Brewery for hosting our wedding. The team worked effortlessly to provide the most perfect day for myself and my husband. From the friendly staff, the bespoke set up of the rooms and our special request for mojitos as our welcome drinks for our guests! The bbq wedding menu was fantastic, my guests are still raving about it being the best food they have ever had at a wedding. All dietary requirements were met with open arms. They even especially made a gluten free and vegan dessert for us! The venue itself was beautiful. Thank you once again from myself and my husband, and all of our guests for an unforgettable day! We are looking forward to heading back soon for their beer festivals and other events. Highly recommended!

From the moment we arrived, the charm and character of the venue set the perfect tone for our special day. The historic brewery, with its rustic elegance, provided a unique and intimate backdrop that wowed our guests.

The staff at Hilden Brewery were exceptional, attending to every detail with professionalism and warmth. They worked seamlessly to ensure everything ran smoothly, allowing us to fully immerse ourselves in the joy of the day. The food and drink were outstanding, with the brewery's signature ales being a particular highlight for many of our guests.

The beautiful gardens offered a picturesque setting for our photos, and the indoor spaces were equally stunning, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere for the reception.
Our heartfelt thanks to the team at Hilden Brewery for making our wedding day so memorable. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a unique and enchanting place to celebrate their special occasion. A special thanks to Jenny who worked tirelessly to get our wedding setup and never left our side throughout the day, nothing was too much or little to ask for!
A special place will be reserved for the Hilden Brewery in our hearts, and we never forget our wedding day!

After all this time it is hard to believe the wedding weekend is finally over - you even arranged the perfect weather for us. The efforts of the team were part of the essential whole that made things run so smoothly. They were so friendly yet were efficient and unobtrusive whilst getting on with things. I would like to say thanks for going above and beyond the call of duty and for making the once in a lifetime event so easy, happy and memorable.

"We honestly feel that we struck gold in being able to have our wedding celebration at Hilden. You and the rest of the team were incredible, and we can't express how welcome, relaxed and comfortable you made us all feel. Everything from the food, service, decor, and every little attention to detail was wonderful, and you made a very long-awaited day feel genuinely perfect. You obviously host a lot of weddings and events, but we felt unique and special in every part! Please do pass our thanks onto the rest of the team."

Jenny and her team at Hilden Brewery ensured that everything ran flawlessly on our wedding day. We couldn't recommend the venue enough!
They went above and beyond for us. When our bus hire company let us down the day before the wedding they did their best to help come up with options to get our guests home. Jenny also ensured that our guests signed our guest book when she noticed that this detail may have been forgotten about from everyone having too much fun! And everything else they did for us without us even noticing. We really appreciated how helpful all the staff were and how good the service was throughout the day.
We had our wedding in the Tipi tents which allowed us to have our own personal touch on our wedding day. We could decorate it exactly how we wanted and it looked amazing on the day!
It was exactly what we wanted for our day and we loved the mix of the beautiful old Irish buildings with the contemporary quirkiness of the Tipi's.
The BBQ feast was extremely tasty. There was a wide selection of meats and sides and we enjoyed this much more than the typical meat, potato and veg options you normally get at weddings.
The comments that we got from all of our guests was how much fun they had. There was a really relaxed atmosphere and the venue lends itself to a fun, relaxed day where everyone can eat drink and be merry!
If I could do it all again, I'd still pick Hilden!

Looking for a something to do during the day?

How about an Afternoon Tea or Gentleman’s Tea (not just for Gentleman!) at Hilden? Or some basket weaving? Or perhaps a wedding crown? Or a brewery tour? A painting party? Laser clay pigeon shooting and archery? We have lovely spaces around the estate and some sparkling bubbles and beer to enjoy along the way.
