Bantry House Weddings: Cork

Luxury wedding venue in a stunning location on the South West coast of Ireland. Dating back to the 17th century, Bantry house is a 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 with 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.

"Absolutely inspiring"
Received a warm welcome to Bantry House in August 2016. Wandered around for the House tour, meeting the owner and having a chat about her very ambitious project to restore the House and massive gardens. The tour was taken by a very entertaining and knowledgeable lady who made the tour so very interesting and down to earth. The interior of the House is lovely, very different to many of the other great houses we have visited; still needs a lot of TLC which is being done as they can afford it, using young conservator university students where possible. Few grants available so all done with gate takings, wedding bookings, photo shoots, B & B accommodation and tea shop etc. Many years ago, many of the interior furnishings were purchased secondhand in France at the Palace of Versailles sale of excess furnishings after their refurbishment, so many quality pieces.
After the House tour we wandered around the massive gardens, following a little stream, picking out the remnants of the old garden rooms that had been left to deteriorate over the years by previous generations. All to be restored in the future apparently. Gardens around the House and the walled garden have been restored to magnificence as have the 100 steps at the back of the House. The embankments beside the steps are currently in the process of restoration. The view over the Bantry House roof top to Bantry Bay from the top of the steps is stunning. Then on to the stable blocks, one of which has been restored with the other still in ruins. After all this walking we visited the tea room for a very refreshing cuppa. I hope I can return to in 5-10 years to see the progress achieved by this very energetic family.
You can spend from 1 to 4+ hours visiting this estate, great off road parking, refreshments available and very friendly hosts.
I encourage everyone travelling to Republic of Ireland to visit Bantry House both for the experience and future preservation of Bantry House.

"Fairytale settings"
If I could give this a 10 star review I would! We had a very intimate wedding with 2 guests. Sophie was amazing with all her help and was really prompt answering all my email questions. The room we had was huge, beautiful, clean, and I totally felt at home. We had a 180 degree view of the bay and grounds from our windows. The grounds themselves are beautiful and worth strolling around several days. The tea room was nice and very well priced. You could walk down the forest lined driveway into town maybe a 10 min walk. I really enjoyed ending the night sitting in the library with a beautiful fire going surrounded by tons of history. I don't think that anything I say will do Sophie and Bantry House justice. It must be experienced to really appreciate all its beauty!
