Attended a wedding here in Dec, very impressive venue and very picturesque, but bloody cold as all castles are. All in all a good day with good music, etc. The driveway could do with a bit of surfacing to improve the first impression on your approach. A very nice place for a wedding though and service, etc all very good.

We attended a wedding at the stunning Narrow Water Castle at the weekend and from start to finish, the whole day was perfect. This is an incredibly beautiful place standing among well manicured lawns and mature Hydrangea bushes with a permanent marquee for the wedding reception. The service itself was held in a long galleried room followed by a drinks... More

What a stunning place overlooking the port of Warrenpoint and nestling amidst the Mourne Mountains its one of the must visit places and you will not be dissapointed in the splendor of this castle.........The Castle itself is beautifully decorated and retains its natural carachters and the view from each and every window is spectular..

As many reviews on here state - this castle seems to be privately owned. I was lucky enough to visit here as part of a business so I seen its beauty first hand. Inside, the building is in slight need of repair, although still beautiful! As for the grounds of this castle, stunning is a word that comes to mind!

Narrow Water Castle, close to Warrenpoint (Co. Down - Northern Ireland), is an Anglo-Norman style castle. Regretably the castle seems to be almost always closed to the publc. As I live within 20 miles of the castle, I've as yet to gain access to the building. But will undoubtedly admit that Narrow Water Castle is an impressive fortification, worth a... More

We attended a wedding at Narrow Water Castle. I think it's only used for special functions. What can I say but a beautiful location, historic building and amazing food/service. The grounds are stunning and inside the castle has so many nooks and crannies to see. Wonderful!
