Wedding planning can, for some couples, seem like a daunting process. It doesn’t have to be – help is at hand!

At Magherabuoy, our management team has decades of experience in the field of wedding and event planning. Your wedding becomes the Hotel’s wedding when you book with us, so straight away we will offer you as much, or indeed as little, guidance and support as you need.

Our Hotel, built around a nineteenth century ‘Gentleman’s Residence’, boasts a range of event rooms that can cater for wedding ceremonies and receptions for 10 to 270 guests. The Sir Dawson Bates suite is licensed for wedding ceremonies and is sytlishly decorated to augment the splendor of Magherabuoy House’s period architecture. If your wedding is larger, consider the Lanyon Room, thoughtfully laid out to cater for wedding ceremonies, receptions and entertainment. Finally our largest event space, the Causeway Suite, will accommodate up to 270 guests for dinner and as many for the night-time entertainment. Plenty of choice, all under one roof. And so many beautiful locations around the Causeway Coast for those magical wedding photographs.

Food is no problem to us either – our kitchen team can cater for your personal preferences if you can’t quite find what you’re looking for on our extensive menus. We have recently cooked Italian-style food for one happy couple who met on holiday there. Many people opt for the traditional soup, turkey and ham, and choice of dessert – and we do that to a very high standard. Or try something totally different – we will pull out all the stops to make your wedding the best day of your life.

So if you’d like to talk to one of our team to discuss your wedding plans, sample our great food or get a look around the venue, get in touch. We’d love to make your wedding, our wedding. Call us on 02870823507, or email You can also reach us on our social media channels.

Christmas is rapidly approaching and we wanted to take this opportunity to spread some festive cheer!

We are also looking forward to a big night’s entertainment with party night band Justin and the Boogiemen on 14th December… sure to make your party night even more special. Food + drinks + music + friends = great fun!

For a magical Santa experience, book a table at our last Santa Sunday on 15th December. When you arrive at the Magherabuoy you will be greeted with a warm glass of mulled wine or a non-alcoholic fruit punch. Then to your table, to enjoy a sumptuous carvery fit for a king. hot and cold starters, soups, roast turkey, ham beef, vegetables, potatoes, all the trimmings…. and don’t forget to leave room for a home-made dessert, then tea or coffee and a mince pie…Our younger guests will then get to meet Santa himself and receive a personalised gift. The elves will then take the little ones (and everyone else!) to see Santa’s sleigh and some of his reindeer. they really are beautiful creatures. A magical experience for all and some great photo opportunities…

Or get together with friends for a hearty Christmas dinner served daily until 21st December. We can organise a private dining room for you if required. Dawson’s Bistro is open every day serving tasty food at great prices, including our Tea-Time Special consisting of 2 courses and a drink for £13 (available daily from 4pm-6pm).
