Collisheen Estate Wedding Venue – take a step back in time into the land of the pioneers of early Natal and experience the peace and tranquility offered on an original sugar estate. The estate was established nearly a century ago by it\’s founders Douglas Liege and Zillah Hulett. After a trip to Ireland they decided to name the estate “Collisheen” in memory of a town they had visited and enjoyed. Through the years they ran Collisheen Estate as a cattle farm, dairy, timber plantation and of course a sugar estate. The next generation, Neil and Morag Hulett, who took over the farming operation after Douglas\’ untimely death, set and broke numerous world records in their quest to successfully breed and raise the previously very endangered cheetah in captivity.
Set amongst magnificent old trees Collisheen Estate offers a private function facility that is exclusively yours for your special day. Panoramic views of undulating sugar fields are complemented by the warm “family” hospitality of the staff at the estate. Thirty minutes from central Durban and an arms length from Ballito, Collisheen Estate offers a perfect venue for conferences, meetings and corporate training.
