Ballyvolane House is a magical setting for your wedding. Tucked away in the beautiful Cork countryside, Ballyvolane has been in the Green family for generations, so you and your wedding guests can enjoy a slice of home-from-home ancestral chic. Ballyvolane House sits on magnificent gardens and parkland where you can have ceremonies and blessings in the woods, in the rustic hay barn and the gardens. Afterwards invite your guests for a beautiful 4 course meal in the dining terrace of our converted barn alongside the gardens and after, celebrate in style with dancing and more. Weddings often take place on Saturday, and the couple have exclusivity of the house and grounds from Friday (check-in) at 3pm until Sunday (check out) at 12 noon.
Our Wedding Ceremonies
Ballyvolane has over 80-acres of manicured gardens, mature woodland, lakes and parkland to get lost in. With our abundance of enchanting places there are lots of options inside and out. Have your ceremony inside the house, in our rustic hay barn or in the great outdoors where it can take place in the woods, gardens or beside the lakes. We can ensure you there will be a stunning backdrop to your wedding wherever you decide to have it!
Our Food & Drink
After the ceremony comes your Drinks Reception which would take place outside in the gardens and the main house. Your guests can mingle around the gardens, the hall, dining room and drawing room. You and your guests would be greeted on the lawn with our favorite wedding tipples such as; Prosecco or champagne, elderflower Bellinis, "B&T's" or our cocktails, using Bertha's Revenge Gin which is distilled in our small artisan distillery in the farmyard and lastly pints are available from our 1950’s retro caravan in the garden. While guests are enjoying their drinks, listening to live music and celebrating, our team would also be passing our beautiful homemade hot and cold canapes chosen by you.
We look after all catering in-house and our Head Chef Sarah creates stunning seasonal set menus where all our ingredients would be locally sourced from artisan food producers. Even more so, we grow a huge amount of our own vegetables and fruit in our walled garden and this would also be incorporated into our menus.
We have created the perfect party venue! Guests can hit the dance floor or cosy up in the bar which are all connected to the dining terrace so that the party stays together and you can all dance the night away. Bare-foot or ball gowns, we are happy to accommodate all kinds of weddings.
We have six individually designed rooms in the main house which all have magnificent views of the gardens and the surrounding countryside, comfy beds you will get lost in and bathrooms with antique bathtubs. When you book your wedding with us you have the exclusive use of all the bedrooms in the main house, which sleeps 12 people. From May to September, another 20 wedding guests can also be comfortably accommodated in our garden Glamping tents and arcks. After that, we have some great accommodation recommendations in the local area and Cork city. We can help assist you in organising transport for all your guests who are not staying onsite.
