Welcome to the four-star Garryvoe Hotel, an approved Civil Wedding and Civil Partnership venue and unique beachside, luxury hotel overlooking beautiful Ballycotton Bay in East Cork.

Our Proposal to you!

Red Carpet Arrival; Dedicated Wedding Manager; a two-night stay in our split level 1,200 sq. ft. OceanView Bridal Suite; complimentary tasting of your chosen menu and much, much more . . .

At the Garryvoe Hotel we've been hosting weddings since the first day we opened 50 years ago. And there is a reason for that; we don't have wedding coordinators. Hosting your wedding is such a major part of what we do that you will work directly with Stephen, the General Manager and Andrzej, the Deputy General Manager.


The Garryvoe Hotel is also approved to host Civil Weddings and Civil Partnership Ceremonies. We have a number of rooms suitable for civil ceremonies and should couples also wish a spiritual or humanist blessing element as part of their ceremony, we are happy to arrange that. (We do not charge for room hire or set up for civil ceremonies).


It's your wedding: you will deal with one person, who will sit down with you all the way to listen, guide, and help in every possible way. And that same person is on the floor at all times during your big day.


We can cater for smaller, intimate weddings or weddings of up to 300 guests. We can do set menus or á la carte. We set a budget with you – and there are no hidden costs. Our weddings are all about you; you will not notice us, but we will be watching every detail, quietly behind the scenes . . .

  • An experienced Wedding Manager to advise you and ensure that your preparations and Reception run smoothly.
  • Complimentary Selected Menu tasting for the Bride and Groom prior to the wedding
