Millbrook Lodge


Ballynahinch, Down

In 2012 the Maguire family recognised that their hotel was in need of a major refurbishment if it was to survive. They engaged with Douglas Wallace Consultants who responded with a long term commercial and design master plan strategy for the hotel to position it as one of the main wedding venues in Northern Ireland.

After the completion of the first hugely successful phases including the main function room, master suites and hotel bedrooms to secure the foundations of the business, the resulting significant upturn in business has led to the need for the next phase of the master plan which has now been completed which includes “The Gilmore” restaurant and “The Orangerie” Pre-Function Room.

The Orangerie” Function Suite:

The Orangerie is a stunning new light-filled purpose-built Pre-Function space to augment the Main Function Room and reinforce the hotel’s new market leading position as a wedding and function venue in Co. Down.

The Orangerie has been designed to act as a stand-alone venue for weddings, ceremonies and events of up to 100 persons. The space is glazed from floor to ceiling on two sides opening out to the beautiful new courtyards and gardens created to compliment the internal spaces, with a large feature rooflight over giving bring light into the heart of the space. Since opening, The Orangerie has been enthusiastically received by existing and new patrons and has led to the creation of new revenue streams and diversification of the hotels function offer.
