Luxury wedding venue in a stunning location on the South West coast of Ireland.
Dating back to the 17th century, Bantry house is an historic private estate situated just outside Bantry in County Cork, a picturesque fishing and market town on the Atlantic coast.
To celebrate your wedding party at Bantry House is a magical experience in a spectacularly romantic setting.
Bantry House has a very clear and “sensible” celebrate pack which guides you through costings for rental and the different areas of the estate which can be used.
A dedicated wedding planner will give you tips, suggestions and recommendations; from catering to wedding cakes and everything in between.
When considering catering for your wedding party there are many options available at Bantry House. We can contract in our recommended caterers or are happy to work with one you have in mind.
Located at the entrance, the Maritime Hotel provides an elegant, traditional style sit down dinner. Weather permitting a spit roast wood fire is something you and your party could enjoy.
Carmel Somers of the Good Things Cafe in Durrus offers a local seasonal menu of the best Cork produce you could ever eat.
For a late night snack and Mediterranean flavour, Maarten of Pizza Base cooks fresh wood-fired pizzas straight out of his van.
Bantry house sources wine, prosecco and champagne from Karwigs Wine Merchants and our beer from 8 degrees. There is a small house list but any order can be catered for.
BYO is fine within limits with a corkage of €6 per bottle. We do not allow spirits or kegs in the house so it is wine, beer and bubbles for your drinks of choice.
If you are looking to hold your dinner and dancing in a marquee in the stables, Bantry House can highly recommend Ger Fitzgibbon of Leisuredome, Co.Cork.
Anything goes with wedding cakes these days and any of the above caterers will happily make the cake of your dreams for you. Alternatively Sam at Cloudberry Bakery will inspire you. Organise a meeting and tasting at her shop in Kerry.
If you fancy the idea of a horse drawn carriage then contact Sandra Schmid of Horse Power in Ireland or ring her 087 9389867
Do you have a theme for the day or want a slightly vintage vibe talk to Pearl of Pearl and Godvia she will can rent you beautiful table settings, china and everything else – its inspiring stuff.
Capturing those unique moments from your day is also important and we can highly recommend Kait Husmann, Christina Brosnan, Davitt Vaughan and Adrian Cronin.
