About Breckenhill

This stone-built barn beautifully with its origins in the 18th situated among the rolling hills of Antrim and near Ballyclare will certainly make an outstanding location for the most important day of your life. Lovingly and sensitively converted for the celebration of weddings, you have two barns and the great outdoors in which to celebrate your wedding. You and your guests will enjoy excellent facilities and impeccable service that will create a day to remember forever.

Facilities and capacity

Breckenhill has a licence for civil wedding marriages and civil partnerships celebrations. It can hold ceremonies from 5 to 80 people in the Stone Barn, (30 downstairs, 80 upstairs) or in the garden. For the reception they can seat 80 upstairs, up to 120 or so in the Green Barn and have up to around 150 evening guests. The ceremony can be held in any of the following spaces:

  • Their upstairs room which can seat up to 80 people
  • Downstairs in the stone-walled reception room which can hold up to 30 guests for the ceremony
  • Outside in the garden
  • In the Drawing Room of the nearby Georgian house, holding up to 25 people

Services offered

You will be free to decorate in the style of your choice and make the venue your own for the big day. They can also supply anything you may need: tables, chairs, linen, crockery, cutlery, glasses etc.

Breckenhill has enough space for a marquee -should you wish to seat more people-, and even for bouncy castles and outdoor garden games. They can even offer an archery session to entertain your guests!

Cuisine

Hog roasts and BBQs are popular choices for catering at Breckenhill. They also have a well-equipped kitchen should you choose another catering service supplier. Even though they do not hold a bar licence, you are very welcome to bring your own, hire a bar service, or use a licensed caterer. Breckenhill has everything you would need to have your own professional bar and can hire staff.

Accommodation

Comfortable accommodation is offered at a nearby hotel, a pub with beautiful rooms, or a selection of graceful self-catering cottages with a spa, all within 10 minutes. There is also a lovely selection of other hotels near Belfast airport.

    Lovely place with a twist

    It seemed too good to be true and sadly it was! We had a lovely flexible vibe from the beginning but the owners shouted at my guests for using the wrong bins and hovered over people as they were relaxing at the wedding. Overall people commented on how uncomfortable they were but we didn’t let it ruin a lovely day!

    Breckenhill was the perfect location for our wedding it allowed us to look after our guests, the children had space to play and we could arrange all additional services we wanted without being tied to only what was on offer. Henrietta and David have a beautiful home and the gardens are amazing for photos etc. I could not rate them high enough! 5* plus all the way!
