Are you looking for a wedding reception venue in Ayrshire? The Dumfries Arms is one of Ayrshire’s most well-known, beautiful wedding venues, and is ideally situated in the heart of the county.

Here’s some more details about our stunning Ayrshire wedding reception venue, and what you can expect from us on your big day.

Historic Venue for a Wedding Reception in Ayrshire

The Dumfries Arms dates back to the 18th century, which is evident when you look at the elegant exposed brick exterior and sash windows. However, when you step inside, you’ll soon realise there’s nothing dated about this amazing Ayrshire wedding reception venue!

The stylish reception area, which is the first place your guests will see, is decorated with monochromatic tiles, a sweeping staircase and a grand piano. As they enter the ceremony room, they’ll be impressed with the ambient mood lighting, not to mention the pure white aisle and chairs (with choice of sash colour). In the evening, our team work hard to quickly transform the room into a dance floor and relaxation area.

As you might expect, your honeymoon suite is designed to be decadent. This wedding reception venue in Ayrshire has a sumptuous four-poster bed, Jacuzzi bath, plus modern-baroque furniture. It’s the perfect place to unwind after your big day, and to enjoy your first night as a happy couple.

The Dumfries Arms takes great pride in using only top-quality ingredients, locally sourced wherever possible. Our sumptuous sit-down dinners add the perfect touch to your wedding day.

Why a Wedding Reception Venue in Ayrshire?

The scenic wilds of Ayrshire make the perfect backdrop for a romantic wedding. We’ve got an abundance of heaths and rugged hills close by, plus the spectacular islands of Cumbrae and Arran are only a short distance away.

Beach-lovers will be pleased to note that we’re also close to the sea, and are near to local landmarks like Dumfries House and Culzean Castle. And of course, Ayrshire is known for being the birthplace of Scotland’s most famous bard, Robert Burns – and you’ll find his museum close by.

In fact, many guests often find themselves staying in Ayrshire, long after the wedding is over.

Convenient Travel

If your guests are travelling far to be with you on your wedding day, you’ll want to know that there are plenty of transport links nearby. The Dumfries Arms is situated close to the city of Glasgow, and Prestwick Airport is only half an hour’s drive away. Regular buses come to the area, and it’s also possible to rent a car from the airport.

If your guests want to explore, Glasgow itself is an hour away, and has many museums and art galleries to enjoy.
