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.
However, don’t let the past deter you from exchanging your marriage vows or celebrating your wedding at Belvedere House, Gardens and Park. The symbol today of Belvedere is the Passion Flower and whereas the tale of ‘The Wicked Earl’ dominates the past, the future unions on the estate should fare much better.

“As a veteran of four daughters' weddings I had never before been specifically congratulated on the Food. In far from favourable conditions you and your team performed miracles to produce a meal that deserved all the praise it prompted.
Thankfully we have no further daughters to marry off. But to those who do I heartily recommend your catering. It was simply superb.”Guy Williams
