Nestled in an idyllic, country setting, Barnabrow Country House, located in East Cork can be exclusively yours.

The immaculate estate grounds, individually designed bedrooms of the Manor House and the Courtyard, the cosy Mor Chluana cottage for drinks before dinner, and the grand banqueting hall with its renowned chef, are all designed to wrap you in a cocoon of intimacy.

Barnabrow Country House offers several locations, inside or outside, where ceremonies can be conducted: Our tree-shaded Fairy Grove is simply magical on sunny days; the front of the Manor House offers stunning views of East Cork’s rolling countryside; and when climates forbid, guests can celebrate your union in our elegant conservatory, with 85 seats and much more standing space.

The labyrinth of buildings and pathways at Barnabrow beckons guests to explore.  They delight in the nooks and crannies that they unearth and are surprised by the occasional fairy that passes them by.  Sometimes this is the effect of the champagne that they are sipping on the deck that overlooks East Cork’s rolling countryside, with distant glimpses of Ballycotton Bay.  They are relaxing now, after the exchange of vows, which was held in the Fairy Grove, beneath tall trees that dappled the sunlight to make the whole ceremony look like an Impressionist painting.

The canapes tantalise the palate and promise of the wedding feast to come.  Your guests are charmed; they wonder at your cleverness to have found such a secret and to have brought them here.  The tension of the past months begins to melt – your serene visage is momentarily glimpsed by a discreet photographer and is preserved forever.  You look beautiful.

Oh my gosh, from start to finish everything was amazing. I booked my wedding three years ago with Barnbrow Country House (Susan). The minute we drove up the drive way we knew this was or place, even with two lock downs we felt so at ease with this venue.

I was, this is your place. By god did it exceed our expectations from the beginning. Our guests were amazed with the quirkiness of there rooms. Our food was 5 stars, all homemade. If I was to do it all over again, Barnbrow Country house would always be the place. Thank you to all the staff and to Susan, who I became friends with the minute I drove up that drive with my now husband. You all made our day so perfect. The guests loved how different it was to a traditional hotel wedding. The rooms were so clean, and breakfast amazing. Thanks again! xx

Barnabrow staff were simply wonderful for us throughout all of our changes of dates due to Covid. We got married here with four guests, and had the most wonderful ceremony in the fairy fort, followed by a sumptuous meal.
Three months later, when restrictions eased somewhat, we were finally able to

have the day we wanted to have in March 2020 with all of our family and friends.
The food, service, craic, weather and location we're all exceptional. Susan, Jess, Ruth, Geraldine and of course the kitchen and service staff really made our day so special. All of our friends have been raving about the food, the venue and their cozy rooms.

Thanks everyone, we will visit soon for a Sunday lunch.

We booked our wedding in 2019 and, after two postponements, we were so delighted that Barnabrow was still available to us. From the outset, we found the communication very prompt and efficient from the wedding team, led brilliantly by Geraldine, Susan and Ruth. There were very few issues that could

not be solved by an email or a phone call, so it made the whole process so easy. We stayed in one of the cottages the night before and it exceeded all of our expectations. It was cosy, spacious, comfortable and perfect for photos on the day. The conservatory was bathed in a lovely autumn light, and felt so intimate. The food was truly delicious, thank you Adrian and team, and will be talked about for a long time to come! The bar staff were professional and pleasant. Our guests loved their rooms, and the rooms in the main house were beautiful. Breakfast was delicious, served in a gorgeous room with a cosy fire. We loved our day and are so happy that we chose Barnabrow Country House. We are looking forward to visiting the Tea Rooms for afternoon tea to reminisce on our time there.
