Courteney Cox wants to get married in Ireland.

The 'Cougar Town' actress has her heart set on tying the knot with Johnny McDaid at Ashford Castle in Lough Corrib, Galway, after falling in love with the medieval building whilst visiting the Snow Patrol rocker's family in Derry, northern Ireland, recently.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''Johnny took Courteney to Ireland to meet his family and they fell in love with Ashford Castle. They want to get married there at the end of the year and have a big bash in LA on a Malibu beach afterwards.''

Johnny, 38, popped the question to the former 'Friends' star, 50 in June after just six months of dating.

The pair shared the happy news with their fans shortly afterwards, by each posting on Twitter, ''I'm engaged to him!'' and ''I'm engaged to her!''

Courteney and Johnny were first spotted together in December when they attended the actress' close friend Jennifer Aniston's holiday party in Los Angeles.

However, speculation things were moving very fast began to swirl earlier this year when the couple's mutual friend Ed Sheeran - who introduce them to one another - let slip that they had moved in together.

Meanwhile, Courteney finalised her divorce from her ex-husband David Arquette in May last year, but the ex-lovers remain on good terms and share custody of their 10-year-old daughter Coco.
