Clonwilliam House is a country house set dramatically atop the wooded hills that surround the Vale of Avoca near Woodenbridge in Co. Wicklow. It commands breathtaking views across one of the most beautiful landscapes in Ireland, with mature grounds and woodlands hosting an abundance of wildlife and the picturesque Goldmines river running through it.
Although there has been a house peering out from this majestic spot for 350 years, the current house dates from the 19th century, since which time it has undergone a number of transformations. The result is an exquisite blend of contemporary glamour and period splendour, combining spectacular 21st century luxury with the loveliness of a Georgian backdrop. For the aesthete therefore, Clonwilliam is that rare breed of house that has everything - exemplary luxury and design set in outstanding natural beauty. In its new incarnation as one of Ireland's most exclusive wedding venues, Clonwilliam sits comfortably amongst the best wedding venues in Ireland.
It is undoubtedly true that the words of the poet Thomas Moore, written while sojourning in Avoca, resonate for all those who visit here:
There is not in this wide world a valley so sweet
As that vale in whose bosom the bright waters meet.
