For more than a century the Imperial Hotel has been one of Cork's favourite wedding venues.
We take great pride in making a Wedding Day truly memorable and the Imperial Hotel in Cork City provides a stunning backdrop for that special day.
The Imperial Hotel is Cork's most sophisticated wedding venue and provides a magical setting for your wedding reception.
Our Ballroom is located on the first floor and can accommodate up to 180 people and our tables are dressed in white crisp linen with matching chair covers and bows as well as an amazing candelabra with candles &flowers for each table.
Should you wish to marry in the hotel, our Morgan Suite is our ceremony suite. This room is across from the Ballroom and your guests access this room via the main staircase and walk along a candle lit corridor so giving it a nice atmosphere. The room has a number of windows allowing for natural day light and is air conditioned. In the room, the red carpet will be in the centre of the room as you walk to the top of the room, the chairs will be covered with chair covers and there will be flowers in the room.
After the ceremony, or on arrival, your guests are directed to South's bar for the drinks reception and you can take photos throughout the hotel and then mingle with your guests.
Once you are ready for dinner, we will ring the bell and your guests are brought to the Ballroom. In the room, the bar will be open & there will be a dancefloor. For guests wishing to smoke, there is an external decking area adjacent to the bar so all your guests remain together.
Once your day is coming to an end you and your partner can retire to the amazing two Bed-roomed rooftop penthouse and wake up with views of Cork City on your first day as a married couple
