About The Inn at Irwin Gardens

The Inn at Irwin Gardens is a wedding and event venue in Columbus, Indiana. The Inn is an Edwardian mansion built by a family of millionaires. It retains much of the original features such as furniture, light fixtures, decorations and more. Joseph Irwin and his family moved into the new home in 1864 and it was enlarged and redesigned several times to accommodate a growing family and reflect Joseph’s increasing wealth. The final remodel was done in 1910 by architect Henry Phillips and erased the remaining details of the original house and replaced with an Edwardian style. The Italianate Gardens were completed in 1913 and inspired by an exact garden at Pompeii. The home was purchased and restored in 2009 and opened as a venue in 2012.

Facilities and Capacity
The Gardens is a stunning outdoor area for ceremonies and receptions. The Gardens feature a raised terrace that connects to the house, two turtle pond fountains, wisteria-covered pergolas, marble and sculptures of Greek philosophers. A brick arch in the north pergola leads to a small evergreen shade garden. The sunken garden sits below the upper lawn and features a bronze elephant, a wishing well, herb garden, tea house and beautiful trees and plants all around. The mansion is 13,000 square feet of space and holds a bed-and-breakfast style inn for overnight guests.

    Ashley at Irwin Gardens was delightful to work with. She was helpful throughout the entire process of a Rehearsal Dinner event for my son and his wife. We had to rent a tent, caterer and lots of other items to make this event possible---and she was there for every step.
    The grounds are to die for----and makes for such an impressive RD or wedding.
    We had the coolest July weather----so we were extra happy that Ashley even supplied us with that

    You couldn't ask for a more beautiful venue in the area. The house takes you back in time, and our guests loved wandering the gorgeous gardens. Working with Brittany was so refreshing after a bad experience with a previous planner. She was on top of the details and made extensive lists after every meeting. I really felt like we were being taken care of on our wedding day, and the staff worked to make it perfect.
