Wedding venue with a difference
Venue Service

By Aoife McCarthy and Paul Kennedy, on 23 Feb 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2016

We got married in Innishannon house on 22nd of July 2016 and from beginning to end we couldn't have wished for more. After getting engaged in December 2014 we began the search to find the perfect venue. As soon as we parked the car in Innishannon house hotel and walked towards the hotel we knew it was the venue for us. The incredible setting right on the river Bandon creates the perfect relaxed garden feel and the beauty one could only wish for on their wedding day. From the moment we met Margaret we were put completely at ease. Chatting to Margaret we realised to the staff of Innishannon, house nothing was a problem. From that day forward correspondence with Innishannon house was second to none. Everything was organised hassle free and without any stress. Thankfully the sun made an appearance on the day of the wedding and we made our way to the beautiful Innishannon house. We'll never forget the feeling we got as we drove through the gates to see our guests in the gardens sipping champagne in the sunshine. Following the drinks reception we had the most divine meal. Everybody was enjoying themselves. With the dining room doors open people people were free to mingle inside and out and the garden became an extension to the dining room. Throughout the night the staff of Innishannon house looked after us and our guests beyond belief. Each and every one of our guests had nothing but compliments for the venue, the meal and the service. We had the best wedding day and this is hugely thanks to the amazing service and laid back feel of Innishannon house. We will be forever grateful for all they did for us and would recommend it as a wedding venue.

Fabulous wedding venue
Venue Service

By Linda Clifford, on 19 Aug 2014

We had an absolutely fantastic experience of Innishannon House Hotel on our wedding day, New Years Eve 2013. Margaret and Shane, the managers of the hotel were a pleasure to deal with, going out of their way to accommodate every wedding whim we had! Customer service here is second to none and the staff went out of their way to be really helpful to all of our guests even finding a spare iphone charger for a guest who’s battery had run out over the night. Innishannon have added a huge new bar to the back of the hotel and we had our drinks reception in here. We were having a black tie wedding and on the day I noticed that all of the bar staff were all wearing bowties (which was really cute and shows that they paid huge attention to even the little details). Innishannon has been recommended by Taste of Ireland with Paolo Tullio for a number of years and it certainly lived up to its reputation. Since the wedding everyone we have met has been commenting on how amazing the food was and a lot of our friends and family are real foodies so that’s a real compliment. Our guests commented that the fillet steak was tender and cooked with real care. They even came around through the main course to see if anyone wanted extra pieces of meat so even those who chose fish were able to sample the meat as well - another lovely touch. Overall I would highly recommend Innishannon House Hotel for a wedding. The location, old world charm of the house, the excellent staff and beautiful food and drinks made our day so special.

Hidden Gem in West Cork
Venue Service

By Marlene & Shane Dunlea, on 23 Jul 2014

We had our wedding reception in Innishannon House last month and had an unbelievable day. We had a very positive experience with the friendly and professional management & staff from the initial meeting all through to the big day. Our guests have not stopped raving about the venue, a real hidden gem. The setting is undeniably beautiful, ideal for photographs and if you are looking for a romantic chilled out fun wedding you will do well to find a better spot than here. The food is top notch, everyone was very complimentary of the service and attention to detail. It is pure genuine down to earth hospitality at its best. We have memories now to cherish for a lifetime and would like to give a big thank you to Margaret,Shane and all the team. We wish you continued success for the future and would strongly recommend anyone looking at wedding venues to consider Innishannon House Hotel. Shane & Marlene
