Firstly you must apply for approval to the Health Services Executive Civil Registration Office. Each couple must apply directly; the hotel is not permitted to apply on your behalf.
Click here for the Health Services Executive website, or call +353 1 8638200.
Approval is granted to each couple on a case by case basis and is determined by a member of the Health Services Executive Civil Registration Office.
A member of this team will meet with you to review your application. When they are satisfied that both the hotel and the couple meet the requirements, approval is then granted.
Applications should be to the Health Services Executive Office made at least three months before the wedding, however, it is advisable to apply as far in advance as possible to guarantee requested dates.
The hotel must complete a declaration form for each individual application and also ensure that the standards set out by the Health Service Executive Civil Registration Office are adhered to at all times.

There is a notification fee of €150.00 which must be paid at the first meeting with the member of the Health Service Executive Civil Registration Office.
There is also a charge of €24.45 per hour for the Registrar on the day of the ceremony.
The Registrar is required to be in the building for one hour before and one hour after the ceremony so there will be a cost of €48.90, and the €24.45 will apply for each additional hour the registrar will be in the building.
