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 cannot recommend Barnabrow House highly enough as a wedding venue. Our top 3 reasons (and there are many more than three) are as follows: 1 – The food was amazing and tasted exceptional on the day. We can’t praise Stuart and the team enough.
