Life O Riley is a venue in Murphysboro, IL, hosting weddings and events. This rustic barn property is a charming destination, nestled on a quiet estate near Kinkaid Lake on Ava Road. Surrounded by breathtaking pastoral scenery, it offers a tranquil retreat for unique and memorable occasions. Life O Riley invites couples to start their special day by making a grand entrance through their historic tree-lined drive.
