Clandeboye Courtyard dates from the early 18th Century and is set in the heart of the historic Clandeboye Estate, whose magnificent entrance and driveway enhance any occasion.
The Courtyard itself measures about 50 metres by 50 metres and has a fascinating central dove cote. It is fully enclosed by the various buildings and rooms listed below to provide a sheltered area that is used for outdoor events all year round. It is even floodlit for evening events. Marquees can be erected in the Courtyard to extend the capacity of the main halls.

Dendron Lodge has been used as a training and education centre since 1986 and has proved to be an ideal learning environment. It is self-contained with its own common room and catering facilities. Six bedrooms are available which can accommodate up to 18 people.
The Ava Gallery has recently been re-located to a newly converted range of buildings right beside the car park. The buildings include the original estate gas factory in a Scottish Baronial style gas house, and the original cart horse stables. We are delighted that Adam’s Fine Art of Dublin will be using the gallery as a Northern Ireland base and are preparing at least three non-commercial shows for the coming year.
