We celebrated our wedding in the Eccles Hotel, Glengarriff on 20th June 2019. To say we made the right decision is an understatement. Everything was magical from start to finish-all we have heard from our guests since is how gorgeous the setting was for our special day! From the minute that we viewed the hotel, we knew this was where we had to have our wedding. We walked into the foyer and were immediately transported back in time to a world of vintage elegance-fresh and new, yet retaining such character we knew it was something special. We met Rose, our wedding coordinator and she was the nicest, most accommodating person we had met with in all our venue viewings. She showed us around and went through everything with us and once she showed us how beautifully she would decorate and coordinate the room for our wedding, we were sold! She is so incredibly creative and gifted at what she does-every vision I had for the wedding was enhanced and perfected by Rose. We had nothing to worry about-she had the entire room made up to perfection with vintage paraphernalia that gave us the feeling that we were celebrating in an old world of elegant luxury. The year leading up to the wedding was seamless-any time I needed help, someone was there to give us whatever we needed. Be it Rose, Sandra, Michael or Patrick, everyone absolutely bent over backwards for us the entire time right up to the day of the wedding. Sandra, our reservations correspondent, bent over backwards to help us figure out accommodation for guests coming from abroad, and through multiple phone calls she was nothing but gracious and lovely through our awkward requests and made sure we were sorted on the day. The day of the wedding was nothing short of perfection. The bridal party got ready in the Yeats Suite which is the most beautiful room I've ever seen, while the grooms party got ready in another room in a different part of the hotel-so that we wouldn't see one another! We were brought up the most beautiful breakfast to the Yeats suite, enough to feed an army. Patrick could not have done any more for us, he was at our beckon call throughout the entire day for whatever we needed. The hairstylist and makeup artist even commented on Patrick, saying that in all the weddings they had done, they had never seen someone so attentive without being overbearing. The venue on the day was magnificent. Rose had every detail perfect, from the centerpieces to the table plan and everything in between. The little touches made a huge difference. And then, THE FOOD. The food was very important to us as this is what everyone says they remember most from every wedding, so when I say the food was amazing I don't just mean by wedding standards. The chef is nothing short of a culinary genius. Every mouthful was heavenly, we had plenty of food to feed everyone and there was no compromise on the quality of food due to quantity. We felt like we got to treat all of our close friends and family to a gourmet meal. The food was so gorgeous that family members of mine have since travelled back just to have lunch there! Everything was handmade and a lot of it grown on-site by the chef himself. He included homemade white aero with pine in the dessert of apple tarte- these touches really made it personal and unusual. I can't recommend The Eccles hotel enough, not just for the setting but for the people too. It was truly a perfect day, one we will never forget!

We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue. We had guests arriving from all over the world and the Eccles was the most hospitable hotel you could ask for. We felt so lucky to find them. The staff were ultra friendly and the wedding day itself ran like clockwork. Smoothly, easily and amazingly-Rose had it all organised and was so helpful and kind, along with all the staff. Oh and Eddie the chef-what a talent-the food was utterly delicious! All the guests commented on what a fabulous time they had at the Eccles which makes Aaron and I so happy. Thankyou so so much Eccles Hotel.

I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding and have complete confidence to recommend the Eccles to any couple looking for a venue in west cork. The hotel history and charm adds to the whole event , while the food and staff was complimented by all our guests - we had over 160 on the day and it was restaurant quality. As an added bonus glengarriff is particularly stunning and my guests took advantage of exploring garnish island and some of the many other tourist attractions the next day. It was a fairytale weekend in a dream location. I wish every other couple the same beautiful experience as us.

My wedding should have happened on the 12th of May but had to postpone as my brother in law was diagnosed with leukaemia I rebooked it for 29th September and had to postpone 4 weeks to go as he got a terminal diagnosis everything changed for him over night. I am still to have my wedding in the Eccles Hotel in the not too distant future and they have been amazing to us during a very difficult time. I can't recommend them enough for their support and understanding so far.
