Description

The meandering pathways at Barnabrow beckon 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 catches 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 prepared by Michelin star-trained chef, Stuart Bowes, 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.

We would like to thank you all so much for our recent wedding at Barnabrow House (July 6th 2019)

Myself and Stephen were blown away by Barnabrow from day one and after
Seeing the venue knew it was for us. It was actually the only venue we visited.

From the day we booked to check out the day

after everything at Barnabrow has been so easy and made the whole process of wedding planning so much less stressful.

Every single guest on the day commented on the beauty of the house and the grounds, the very relaxed feeling and the outstanding food. It was our main hope for the day that everyone was well fed and relaxed and Barnabrow most definitely made this possible.

I would like to thank the reception/ wedding planning team, especially Amy, Susan, Jessica and Jess who were so helpful in guiding us through the entire process and the fastest email reply’s I have ever experienced.

Also thank you for being so accommodating to guests of mine who changed accommodation and had issues the day of. It was very much appreciated.

Can I in particular pay complement to the three bar men on the night. I apologise I didn’t get all their names. For the size of the wedding compared to the bar there was never a wait and everyone was complimenting them for their professional management of the bar and speed.

Can I pay a particular compliment to one of the bar men, Blake( I hope I have the name right). On the night we needed something to eat for my Mom who has recently been ill. As she had gone to
Bed we never thought to keep her some of the afters food and he really went above and beyond to help us in getting something for her late that night. He looked around and managed to find something suitable. This small gesture meant a lot to us and we are very grateful to him and impressed by his professionalism. We hope you will acknowledge this with him and please pass on our sincere gratitide.

We cannot fault the amazing service we received from Barnabrow from day one and would have no hesitation in recommending the venue to anyone for any occasion. We definitely hope to be back for celebrations in the future and make many more happy memories at Barnabrow.

Many thanks again,
Una and Stephen Grogan

We had our Wedding in Barnabrow last Month and I must say that from the second we drove up we knew it was the place for us and after dealing with Susan and Amy that certainty was further cemented. They are the most amazing ladies you could hope to have helping you plan your wedding. They were super

fast in all their responses and were always there to answer all our hundreds of questions! The day itself was pure magic, the sun shone even through there was a storm the day before and after and we'd like to think that the magic that Barnabrow holds was sprinkled on us that day. We got ready in the Cottages which are huge and well equipped, we had family from abroad and our own kids as well so the cottages were ideal for our needs. The drinks reception and canapés were delicious and with the weather so nice we were even able to have our musicians play outside while everyone enjoyed the decking and outdoor seating. Now the Food, there is only one word for the Food That Stuart sends out of his kitchen, Flawless! Every single guest adored the food and many have said they will be going back again for sunday lunch. The grounds are beautiful, spread out and quiet, but do bear in mind that there is a lot of steps if you have people in a wheelchair or elderly but there is always a solution so don't let that deter you from going to take a look at Barnabrow, you wont be disappointed. A special mention too for Marcel and all the amazing staff that looked after us during the day, you were all friendly, happy and courteous to the guests and many were singing your praises the next day! As we were there for a few days we had a BBQ the day after in the cottage, to be fair we had to eat inside as the weather was so shocking outside but wow again the food was amazing and lots of it. From both of us thank you so much for helping make our wedding such an amazing and memorable day.

Barnabrow House, where do I start firstly by saying THANK YOU!!! We had our wedding here Easter weekend 20th of April 2019. From the very moment, we met the owner Geraldine we knew this was where we were going to get married. We got married in the fairy grove on the grounds of Barnabrow, which was

like something from a fairytale. The venue itself is magical and amazing, the staff were outstanding on the day. The food was top class, and the management staff of Susan, Amy, Kristine were soooo helpful and couldn't do enough they worked very hard to ensure the day went smoothly. We will never forget our wedding day here it will stay with us forever. We stayed in the cottages the night before which are part of Barnabrow and the space and beauty of the cottages we're unbelievable. This place is a hidden gem in the heart of East Cork, we will be back very soon to eat and stay here, along with our family. Along with many other people who came to our wedding !! I could just go on and on, we left with smiles, we were left with great memories of this beautiful well taken care of venue, very caring staff, excellent owner. Accommodation in Barnabrow has rooms also in the venue it was just breathtaking, attention to detail was sublime, the breakfast after the next day was the icing on the cake, it was delicious, again staff so attentive. So if you want good service, top class food, amazing staff, and unique wedding here is the place to go too 10/10 .

We had our wedding at Barnabrow House in July 2018. Our wedding was organised my parents in Cork as we are based in Australia. Barnabrow was very good at communicating everything by email, and they were really easy to deal with. I know Mum & Dad found them very helpful on the ground and any changes

we wanted to make (eg last min menu change) were not a problem! The rooms were beautiful and everyone commented on how unique the place was! We loved the house and gardens and it had a lovely rustic feeling. Lots of great spots for photos too. We were lucky with the weather so it was fabulous having the drinks reception on the outside deck. Dinner was AMAZING so many people told us how it was the best food they had at a wedding and there was so much choice too! We were stuffed! The restaurant and bar area was perfect for our part of about 85 people. Have to say the bar manager was sooo accommodating and helpful all night long, and had no problems with any of our requests. We really enjoyed the whole experience, including a yummy breakfast the next morning too! Thank you so much!
