About The Celtic Barn
The Celtic Barn came about when plans to refurbish the existing hall grew into the ambitious Celtic Barn project. It takes a special kind of community to realise a $1.8 million project, but that’s just what happened and the community got behind the project and raised over $800,000.
As well as generous donations from individuals and local businesses, the Waipu Caledonian Trust also received grants from the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board, the ASB Community Trust and Whangarei District Council and the dream became a reality when the Celtic Barn was built in 2015.
This beautiful, new building with its huge rustic interior beams and wonderful park surround provide the perfect venue for weddings, parties or large scale corporate and community events.
Being in central Waipu means there is a wide range of accommodation options nearby and the stunning Bream Bay beaches are only a few minutes drive away.
