Venue History: The story of De Courceys starts back in 1890 when the imaginative Mr. Hamilton De Courcey had a magnificent wooden hunting lodge shipped over from his native Sweden to placate his homesick wife. When the testament to his love sadly burnt down in the late 80's the owners decided to rebuild on the present site to keep his legacy alive.
The Manor was designed with a vision and commitment to fine dining excellence and to ensure that De Courceys remained truly unique. vThat is still the case and De Courceys certainly needs to be seen to be believed.
Wedding Trivia: BAD LUCK Seeing an open grave, pig, or lizard on the way to the ceremony, or hearing a crow after dawn on the morning of the wedding are all thought to be omens of bad luck. Catching a glimpse of a monk or a nun is also thought to be a omen of misfortune because of their association with poverty and chastity.
