A Donegal Love Story -

The Central Hotel Donegal Town

Reliving Wedding Celebrations Throughout The Decades


The Central Hotel Donegal town has had a life long tradition of sharing in the happiness of  their wedding couples over  the last 50  years, and this year  we want to celebrate that "Donegal Love Story"  by bringing together and celebrating the love stories of all our couples at a very special celebration event on Saturday June 2nd of the June bank holiday weekend.


Couples will relive the magic and anniversaries of their special day with family and friends at  the Central Hotel Vintage Wedding Celebration event complete with midsummer’s evening buffet banquet and  Summer punch reception served on arrival on the red carpet. The night will include a traditional knees up  with dancing to a local wedding band and a Donegal Love Story Wedding Exhibition which will also be on display. A modern day twist on a vintage theme.

 The Central Hotel  is subsiding this celebration evening and tickets will be available at the greatly reduced rate of only €25 per person.


The unique Donegal Love Story  exhibition will feature a collection of treasured wedding artifacts from couples  such as wedding dresses, photographs and other mementos on display, creating a time capsule of love stories and bringing precious memories to life.

This exhibition will also be open all day on the Saturday for all the families to come and view .


The  Central Hotel Wedding team are now on a mission to find all these couples to celebrate with and to borrow  these treasured mementos for the weekend.

There are videos and faded photos of adoring couples with dodgy hairstyles hiding in attics and the team believe they deserve to be displayed. Looking back and celebrating those happy occasions.


Whether you are celebrating one, ten or fifty years of marriage, the Central Hotel invites you to mark the occasion on Saturday June 2nd with this first of its kind event.  Evelyn Mc Glynn who is heading up this project for the hotel, celebrated her wedding day in the Central Hotel Donegal town on the June bank holiday weekend in 1987 and approached  hotel Sales & Marketing Manager Elaine McInaw with this unique Donegal Love Story concept.


"We want to reach out to anyone who got married here in the last 50 years, gather them all together, celebrate the stories and memories that were made and display their treasured mementos, that have survived all these years. In some cases families may have never seen their parents wedding keepsakes.


There will be some amazing prizes for many of the Donegal Love Story brides and grooms.

Every couple celebrating their golden 50th year anniversary will receive a complimentary overnight stay in the hotel’s Honeymoon Suite overlooking Donegal Bay with other prizes including vintage afternoon tea and romantic dinner for two in Chapman’s Restaurant.

Each couple will also take home a commemorative certificate honouring their special day and lasting love.


Group table bookings are available to ensure family and friends can join for the festivities.

If you would like to have your wedding mementos included in this special exhibition please contact Elaine McInaw in the Central Hotel. All items will be taken care of, secured and returned after the weekend in June.

So, If you or someone you know got married in the Central Hotel Donegal town then join them for this truly unmissable anniversary celebration! For more information or to book tickets contact Central Hotel Donegal Town.  weddings@centralhoteldonegal.com
