 Award winning Orange Tree House is a beautiful, private venue nestled on the shores of Strangford Lough in the pretty, historical village of Greyabbey.


Created from a church dating back to the 1820’s, the stone barn style main room, with its original exposed beams, is the perfect setting for a romantic wedding ceremony. After the formalities you and your guests can relax on the terrace overlooking the lough towards the Mourne Mountains or enjoy a cocktail in the gothic style orangery with the welcome crackle of the open fire.


We believe in "Your day, your way". Whether you opt for a traditional, elegant wedding or take a more alternative approach, we will endeavor to accommodate your plans. Unlike most other private venues, we also provide all of your catering and bar needs so all you need to do is choose your date, menu and drinks then relax and enjoy your day.


The function room can comfortably accommodate up to 130 guests for dinner with room for extra evening guests up to a total of around 160. There are many wonderful areas for photographs within the venue and on the adjacent beach, or arrangements can be made with the neighbouring private Greyabbey Estate or stunning Cistercian Abbey.


The venue was created by Jan Hollinger and Simon Shaw who head up the teams front of house and in the kitchens.


For over 30 years Simon has been delighting the taste buds of discerning diners both here and further afield. Having trained in some of the finest hotels and restaurants across Northern Ireland, London, Switzerland and France, he then owned his own restaurant, Sullivans of Holywood, for 15 years where he gathered a very loyal band of foodie fans. He now works along with his great kitchen team delivering restaurant quality food of your choice for your wedding banquet.


Jan has been involved in the hospitality and tourism industries for many years and has built up a great network within the wedding industry. She and her talented team of staff will be on hand to help throughout the planning stages and during your wedding day ensuring everything runs smoothly.


Our experienced events co-ordinators would love to meet you and show you all that we have to offer and work along-side you to ensure you have the wedding day of your dreams.



We have created a new guest lounge at Orange Tree House which will provide you and your guests with a stylish area in which to relax and enjoy a drink from our well stocked bar. From here you will be able to enjoy the spectacular views whatever the weather. Even if the waves are rolling in you will be able to enjoy the comfort and warmth snuggled into a comfy seat beside the fire.
