With the perfect blend of historic charm and beautiful surroundings, Port Molyneux School has all the ingredients you could wish for in a dream wedding or special event venue.  As the name suggests, the location was formerly the site of the local school and although the location is steeped in history, the venue has been given a thoroughly modern makeover.

One of the many highlights has to be the unparalleled views of the bay as well as the nearby waterfalls and Nugget Point for photos.
