Avalon Marriage Courses Ireland

“We took this pre marriage course last month and it was our priest who recommended it to us. We listened to two priests giving their thoughts on marriage which we thought was really interesting. There were other inputs from a fertility expert and a financial consultant that we thought were really practical and down to earth. We had great fun with the different quizzes we had to do in the workbooks. The course was easy to do, and definitely brought us closer together. Can’t recommend enough” – Jean and Shane, Cork.

We have a 99% approval rating from couples just like you who have experienced our pre marriage course and thoroughly enjoyed it.


Avalon has been running pre-marriage courses since 2007. Bishops and priests throughout Ireland have praised our courses. We designed our new online pre-marriage course to meet the Bishop’s own guidelines.

We meet the guidelines in the following ways:

  • It is delivered by priests and lay people

  • It is the recommended length and covers all the recommended topics

  • It is multi-sessional to give you enough time to understand the content

  • It is rooted in the Church’s Teachings on the Sacraments and Marriage
  • It was assessed by a senior catholic theologian and is fully in line with Church Teaching
  • It puts the couples’ needs first
  • It is delivered at a pace that suits the couple
  • It offers you privacy and space to discuss your relationship without interruption
