As Ireland’s largest professional celebrant society the IECS is a self-governing, inclusive, caring community providing a home to those who seek an ethical, compassionate philosophy of life irrespective of belief systems.


As Ethical Celebrants, we celebrate all life’s milestones – births, wedding ceremonies, vow renewals, coming of age ceremonies and end of life celebrations (civil funerals).

The guiding values of the Irish Ethical Celebrant Society which drive our behaviours and decisions are based upon equality, respect, openness and clarity. We embrace a culture of excellence and offer a bespoke service in response to the needs of a modern Irish society.


The Irish Institute of Celebrants offers professional training to people who want to become Celebrants, to become trained in the craft of ceremony to mark the milestones and transitions in the lives of individuals, families and communities. 


They offer knowledge, practical skills and an accredited qualification with ongoing training, mentorship and networking.  They are dedicated to promoting the use of ceremony to help the client create a ceremony that reflects the couple’s beliefs, philosophy of life, personal stories and personality.
