Ballyvolane House

Weddings at Ballyvolane House

Ballyvolane House is a magical setting for your wedding. Nestled deep in the beautiful north Cork countryside, Ballyvolane has been in the Green family for generations, so you and your wedding guests can enjoy a slice of home-from-home ancestral chic. Originally built in 1728, the house was remodelled in Victorian times to give it a more Italianate style; it’s filled with family heirlooms, portraits and antiques. The house is stylish, homely, has heaps of character and is more “house party” than hotel.

On arrival, guests enter through the front door into the striking pillared hall with its Blüthner baby grand piano and hand-stencilled doors. The large drawing room at the rear overlooks vast terraced lawns where fan-tailed doves flutter. The drawing room can be used for the drinks reception or Civil Marriage Ceremonies. The formal gardens to the rear also provide the perfect setting for the drinks reception and lawn games. Ballyvolane has over 80-acres of manicured gardens, mature woodland, lakes and parkland to get lost in. Blessings and ceremonies in the woods, gardens or beside the lakes will ensure a stunning backdrop to your wedding wherever you decide to have it. We also have a large rustic tin party shed for wedding ceremonies if it’s raining. The meal itself would be held in the vintage-style tent in the gardens (max capacity 140 guests) and the dancing and party would take place in the old stone barn which is attached to the marquee. Bare-foot or ballgowns, we are happy to accommodate all kinds of weddings. We are delighted to have made it into the One Fab Day 100 Best Wedding Venues 2015.

Food glorious food is a huge part of what we do; we keep rare-breed pigs, hens and ducks and we grow a vast amount of vegetables in our walled garden. We forage and where possible, we source all our ingredients from local artisan producers. We have just won a Gold Medal Award 2015 in the ‘Field-to-Fork’ category in recognition of our approach to food.
