Zetland Country House Hotel is situated in the breathtaking Cashel Bay Connemara, Galway and is the perfect venue for a small and intimate wedding with close family and friends. Surrounded by the natural beauty of Connemara’s mountains and coast and away from any of the interruptions of modern life, it is warm and personal, yet easily accessible with new routes into Galway Airport & Knock Airport, Shannon Airport is also within easy driving distance.

We cater for a select number of weddings each year. Many wedding parties take over the entire Hotel for a second or third day, making the Zetland your very own private estate for your special day and beyond. Your wedding guests have the complete run of the house for the period and this allows your friends and family the opportunity and time to either catch up or get to know each other in a relaxed and informal setting in Connemara, Galway. You can explore the stunning natural surroundings or simply relax in the hotel's cosy and welcoming atmosphere enjoying the warm hospitality of the friendly staff.

St James's church is just five minutes from the hotel, ideal for those wishing to hold a religious ceremony. Zetland Country House Hotel can then host your reception drinks outside against the stunning backdrop in the summer months or inside by the fire during the winter. The restaurant, where the wedding breakfast is served, overlooks the bay allowing you to enjoy the surroundings come rain or shine.

At the end of the evening, you and your guests can retire to the individually designed, luxurious bedrooms and enjoy the beautiful views and modern comforts they each have to offer.

At Zetland Country House Hotel, we take pride in offering a very personalised service and for that reason prefer to discuss personally what your wishes are for the day rather than offer a selection of packages for you to choose from online. To visit us or to simply discuss what we have to offer, contact us directly - we'd love to help you plan your dream celebration.
