Why you should say 'I do' to Fernhill for your ceremony
At Fernhill we absolutely love wedding ceremonies. It is truly wonderful to help create the magical moment when two people get married. Here are some reasons why we know that Fernhill would be the most special place for your ceremony.
You can choose to have your ceremony in our Georgian country house, our elegant marquee or the heavenly marriage garden. Confetti magazine described it as "one of the most romantic places in Ireland to say 'I do' "

Tips to make your ceremony extra special
The mansion house at Fernhill has a long rich history which we welcome you to visit and experience for yourself.
With ceremonies you save lots of time as the ceremony tends to be shorter and there is no need to travel. Why not go for a later ceremony and use the time to have a more relaxed morning getting ready for your big day.
Pre drinks reception
A glass of bubbly for your guests as they arrive before the ceremony is a lovely way to start the celebrations.
One of the great things about having a ceremony onsite at your venue is that you get to spend more time with your guests. If you choose a venue with lots of photo ops, you won’t need to travel anywhere else at all.
Although Church weddings cannot take place on Sundays in Cork, the good news is that Humanist and spiritual ones can. This has opened up a lot of possibilities for couples including bank holiday Sundays and more.
If you choose a picturesque outdoor wedding you could make your bridesmaids & guests more comfortable by providing some slip on high heel protectors for walking on grass.
It is very important to book your celebrant early as there is a shortage of them. They book up fast so get going to avoid disappointment of missing out on your preferred one or
We got married in Fernhill on June 4th 2017 and I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives! From the first moment we set foot in the hotel and met Caroline the wedding coordinator we knew that Fernhill was where we were going to get married. We had a civil ceremony in the gardens and the weather was amazing so the gardens looks spectacular! I loved every minute of our day at Fernhill and just wish we could do it again. Our guest are still talking about how amazing the place was. I would highly recommend Fernhill to any couple looking for a wedding venue.
Rebecca & John
We chose Fernhill House as the venue for our Wedding ceremony and reception back in February 2015. From the moment we set foot on the property we fell in love with the place. The setting, the views, the hotel, the food and the staff were perfect. We got married on 6th August 2017. We had our ceremony in the marquee rather than outdoors due to the weather, but it was just as beautiful. Everything went according to plan with the help of the very talented wedding coordinator, Caroline Hayes. Our guests never stopped complimenting the food, the accommodations and the attentiveness of the staff. Nothing was a problem. Thanks to the O'Neill family, Caroline and the staff at Fernhill for helping us have the best day of our lives, full of warmth, love and happiness.
Julie and Rory
