As many as 250 guests can be comfortably accommodated at the Dumfries Arms for the grandest of occasions, and we know exactly how to make the smallest, most intimate of weddings extra special too.

The personal touch is as important to us as all the major formalities of your wedding and our team have the experience and creativity to add finesse to every stage, from first meeting to floral arrangements, table favours to the final flurry of confetti.

However you wish your big day to unfold, however you care to have it conducted, we pride ourselves on our flexible approach to ensuring your requests are met.



Our function suite can be prepared as the setting for your wedding ceremony and then transformed into the perfect scene for your wedding breakfast, and the ideal backdrop for meals and speeches. The suite’s partition is removable, to help tailor the space for ceremonies and celebrations of different sizes, and the room has its own extensive marble bar and separate, designated washrooms.

For your evening reception we can seamlessly transform the suite into a stylish ballroom complete with dance floor and mood lighting for your ceilidh or disco, rock band or classical string quartet, we can help provide just the right atmosphere.



As one of Ayrshire’s biggest and most sophisticated wedding venues, the Dumfries Arms Hotel offers 26 en-suite bedrooms, each individually designed for comfort and ambience.

Our welcoming restaurant, lounge bar, cocktail bar and private dining room – complemented by the relaxed, professional attention of our experienced staff and management team all add to the attractions of a stay at the Dumfries Arms, whether it’s for one night or more.


Food & Drink

Delicious food, professionally and discreetly served; an impressive choice of fine wines, beers and spirits; table settings with a stylish wow factor…

We pride ourselves on the excellence of the recipes and ingredients we use – naturally drawing on the best local produce at every opportunity – and we are known for the popularity and success of the menu suggestions we make to the wedding parties who ask our advice.

From canapés on arrival to coffees at the end of the meal, memorable wedding cuisine is a matter of course at the Dumfries Arms Hotel.
