Their weddings focus on a more personalised approach – as couples now realise that ambience of exclusivity offers so much more – and the occasion is all about them – rather than just another wedding day.

An exceptional venue!
From the moment we set foot in Ballinacurra House we knew it was the ideal wedding venue for us. The interior of the house is so unique, charming and full of character. We were lucky enough to have our ceremony outside and the grounds are spectacular. All our amazing photos were taken on site. It was more that we could have hoped for.Sent on 30/09/2019
All the staff are so attentive and professional and made us feel at home from the beginning. From day one Orela helped us every step of the way. Nothing was a problem and she was always on hand to offer some advice and guidance. She made our lives so stress -free and as a result we enjoyed every second of the day. We trusted her implicitly and she didn’t disappoint! Her attention to detail is second to none.
There was huge transparency when it came to the budget which meant no surprises at checkout. The day was tailormade to suit our budget and tweaked to our needs.
The food is exceptional, what you would expect of a fine dining restaurant. We had been to a tasting day beforehand so lots of attention went into choosing the menu with advice available from the head chef David. We decided to go for the four-course tasting menu which was delicious! All our guests with dietary requirements were well catered for. We decided to go for midnight pizzas and they went down a treat. The Cuban cocktail bar was a huge hit and the bar staff were fantastic. James is super, such a pleasure to deal with. Our families and friends were hugely complimentary on the whole day which was fantastic to hear.
We would definitely recommend Ballinacurra House for your wedding or any special occasion. It’s a hidden gem!

Quality & Expertise
Couldn’t have been happier with our choice of wedding venue. Ballinacurra is a beautiful property, the food was incredible, the location perfect, but what really sets this place apart is the staff. The level of attention and expertise you get at Ballinacurra is second to none, from the planning process to every little detail on the day itself. Everyone had a ball, thanks Ballinacurra!Sent on 04/10/2019

Best day possible
We had our wedding there on 8th September 2018. The custom, professionalism and service of the staff was second to none. We had to ask for very little as everything was thought of and attended to with such ease. It felt like you were a guest in their home.Sent on 04/01/2019
When planning a venue, like anywhere else, you have to be careful with your budget, and, because Ballinacurra House offers so much extra, you have to be very careful with your spending. Like most venues, there are hidden costs and it is very important that if you would like to do something, fully explore all pricing.
4 months on from our wedding and I would safely say, if I was to do it all over again, I would change nothing and I would choose Ballinacurra House every time.
