Description

WEDDINGS AT WESTCOVE


Here at Westcove, we offer you your very own Georgian country house in the splendour of south Kerry, with exclusive use of our houses and grounds for your special day, and the freedom to plan your day as you please.

We can work with you to create a private, informal wedding for up to 120 people in a relaxed atmosphere surrounded by all your family and close friends. We can accommodate 26 (max 28) – Westcove House sleeps 10, The Stables 11 and Garden Cottage a further 5 - all within the same grounds, making it an ideal venue when you have family and friends coming from abroad, so the guests can combine the wedding with a few days holiday/reunion in this beautiful area.

Although not an official wedding planner, Katherine Casey, our manager/cook, has helped many young - and not so young (!) - couples to arrange very varied but always successful events as your will see from our enthusiastic reviews.

We are able to cater for up to 55 guests for a formal celebration dinner in our function/games room in The Stables building.  The tables and most of the chairs can then be cleared for 'dancing the night away' to a live band or disco.

For larger celebrations, a marquee for up to 120 guests can be erected on the lawn in front of The Stables.  Although outside caterers would be needed for these numbers, Katherine and her team are happy to provide delicious home cooked meals in Westcove House itself....although the dining room only seats 26 max, informal 'buffet style' brunches, suppers and barbecues can also be arranged for up to 50 guests before or after the wedding night itself.

Our Local Info page will give you an idea of the numerous possible activities/excursions in this fascinating area.  We will be happy to help you arrange one or more of these Kerry experiences for your guests, including golf, guided nature walks, fishing etc….  Wild life talks, wine tasting, Irish story-telling and of course a selection of musical evenings can also be organised at Westcove House itself.   

For wedding/celebration guests not staying at Westcove, who may need one or two nights accommodation, there is a list of local places to stay on our website where you will also find links to local churches, marquee providers, caterers, etc

A damages deposit of between €500 and €900 - depending on numbers - will be payable in cash on arrival.

Small Weddings/Celebrations (Without Marquee)

Our minimum stay for wedding parties is 3 nights.  Our Games/Function room is the perfect set up for your seated meal for smaller groups of up to 55 people and evening celebrations to dance the night away.  Please visit the catering page on our website (www.westcove.ie) for all catering options.  The normal daily rates apply, with a minimum stay of 3 nights (even for a 2 night weekend). 


Large Weddings/Celebrations (With Marquee)

Our minimum stay for wedding parties is 4 nights - however, we can often be flexible about arrival times.  The rates cover the accommodation for all 3 Westcove properties for 4 nights, sleeping up to 26 (max 28) and include gas, electricity, bedding, towels and light daily cleaning. We have included a charge to cover the extra costs of our staff time needed to supervise the erection and dismantling of a marquee, a security guard to keep a discreet eye on the properties during the festivities, and the additional electricity required for this sort of function.

From the first moment we visited Westcove we got goose pimples - the place blew us away, and we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our wedding. Given the opportunity we had, to bring our friends and family together, we wanted to choose somewhere that was really special - Westcove most

certainly was that. We didn't want a hotel wedding, or a standard run of the mill party. We wanted something more, which represented who we are and what we love. Westcove has beautiful views,history, gardens, and most importantly people - the staff are just wonderful and friendly and were very accommodating. We were able to put together the wedding of our dreams, and it was even better than expected! You can't book the weather but you can have an amazing venue - I would thoroughly recommend this beauty spot to anyone who wants to put their personal stamp on their own wedding, this place will certainly give you a beautiful blank canvas to work with people around you to help. All our friends and family loved the place, not too difficult to get to by air, Kerry and Cork airports relatively close by, and hire cars were easy to organise and meant people could explore the gorgeous surroundings and make a holiday out of it too. I can't wait to go back, and re-live the dream again! A huge thank you to Susannah and Katherine for all your support and help... we couldn't have done any of this without you!

We were looking for something different from the usual wedding venue and when we first found Westcove we knew we were on to something. When we finally had a chance to visit the property and meet with Suzannah and Katherine and discuss with them the ideas we had for our wedding, we knew we had found

what we wanted. Westcove House is such an amazing property and is absolutely ideal for a couple that wants to create their own wedding - from scratch. With plenty of help from friends, family and Katherine and her team we pulled of an amazingly unique and special wedding with trad in the main house and DJ and dancing in the Stables and our closest friends and family staying with us in each of the properties for the wedding weekend. Katherine and team created a delicious menu for us and the food and service was impeccable, despite the fact that we had a few more guests for the meal than they are used to! We just want to say thank you once again to everyone at Westcove House for helping us create such a unique and intimate wedding. It's a weekend we will cherish forever!

...smooth running...no fuss or stress...highly recommend

Sarah and I had our wedding at Westcove House with the whole property booked out for our friends and family from Australia and around the world. Katherine and the team were amazingly helpful throughout the whole process, from planning the

wedding from the other side of the world through to housing everyone for the week and the smooth running of the reception on the big day. Everything that we needed and wished for was provided without any fuss or stress for us and we would highly recommend Westcove House to anybody, in fact we have since had Sarah's sister and another close friend book the venue for their weddings too!

Perfect backdrop for a wonderful weekend...forever etched in our hearts!

I've been meaning to write sooner, just only really got back to normality this week after the joy and emotion of our wedding party, and a lovely few days in Westcove with our parents afterwards. I just wanted to thank you

again for being so accommodating with us, and for giving us the perfect backdrop for a wonderful weekend, that will be forever etched in our hearts and memories.

Our friends and family couldn't get over how gorgeous the setting was, whether they were coming from west cork or the south of Italy. One friend even made the trip from Vancouver, and said it was more than worth it. The day of the party went perfectly, the weather was good to us, and Katherine did an amazing job with the food -- it got nothing but glowing reports all round; the Italians loved the salmon in particular! And Katherine and Michael and everyone with them were so good to us.

...wonderful situation...guests loved it...staff who ensured that everything ran smoothly

In June 2013 we rented all of the accommodation at Westcove and held a 50th birthday party there with a marquee. The house and gardens are in a wonderful situation and our guests loved it. The house and

gardens are suitable for family gatherings/parties and weddings. Westcove is a very special place in a unique and fabulous location. Susannah made the booking process simple and efficient and it's important to mention Katherine Casey and her wonderful staff who ensured that everything ran smoothly. Katherine also caters for groups and she provided an excellent lunch for 50 on the day following the party.
