Belvedere House was completed in 1740 by Robert Rochfort who later became Lord Belvedere. Robert’s matrimony plans would not be deemed straightforward to say the least. After the death of his first wife he remarried a young Dublin debutante Mary Molesworth, who after having four children in four years with, subsequently imprisoned her under house arrest under a charge of an alleged, never proven, infidelity at his family home in Gaulstown Park. Mary was only released upon Lord Belvedere’s death in 1773.

Weddings at CaToCa
However, don’t let the past deter you from exchanging your marriage vows or celebrating your wedding at Belvedere House, Gardens and Park.
