Beautiful Music for Special Occasions - weddings, corporate functions in Ireland Mid West

Church of St. John, Cratloe, Co. Clare            

One of Ireland's most popular venues for weddings, St. John's Church Cratloe was built in 1791 by Rev. James Ward. The little church has hosted many celebrity weddings including that of Sharn Corr and Gavin Bonnar. It has has been described by an Foras Forbartha as "Areas and Sites in Co. Clare of Historic and Artistic Interest".
It is "a small, low T-Shaped Barn Church with a date stone WMPC 1791" and another date stone 1806. The exterior is lime washed with good fenestration; round headed clear glass windows and original slates on the roof. The interior has a fine early 19th Century reredos with marbleised columns, also a small side chapel on the south side similarly treated, and also three bow-shaped galleries. The Church is lovingly well kept by the Parish Priest and is hidden away on the west side of Cratloe Wood. This is a fine example of an early barn Church, to our knowledge one of the finest in the country".
