About Castle Waterford

Castle Waterford is a family operated wedding & event venue located at a private, ten-acre, castle-themed residence in Royse City, Texas.  There are two castles on the property facing each other, with a heart-shaped pond in between.

The first castle is the family’s home. It is a replica of an ancient castle found in Waterford, Ireland.

The second castle is the wedding and event venue. Its hand-crafted design includes
a drawbridge, portcullis, four turrets, a crenulated roof line, hand-painted brick and stone, and a stamped wood-patterned floor.

This venue’s rental price includes the most generous amenities in the region.
Both a’ la carte and all-inclusive packages are offered, enabling couples to design the wedding of their dreams.

On behalf of the family and staff at Castle Waterford, thank you for considering hosting your wedding or event with us!
