Fernhill House Hotel

Civil Ceremonies West Cork


Why you should say 'I do' to Fernhill for your wedding ceremony

At Fernhill we absolutely love wedding ceremonies. It is truly wonderful to help create the magical moment when two people get married. We love to create the most unforgettable walks down the aisle. Here are some reasons why we know that Fernhill would be the most special place for your ceremony.

Romantic locations

You can choose to have your ceremony in our Georgian country house, our elegant Garden Marquee (now available all year round for civil ceremonies) or our heavenly Marriage Garden filled with natural flowers and overlooking the West Cork countryside. Confetti magazine described it as "one of the most romantic places in Ireland to say 'I do'". Our marquee has been adorned with wisteria dripped chandeliers elevating any wedding ceremony. A striking space, with draped ceilings, the Garden Marquee needs very little decoration making it an effortless choice for your wedding celebration. 

The best service possible

The O'Neill family and team have been recognised as the no.1 hotel in Cork and one of the top in Ireland. We will care for you and ensure everything is as perfect as it should be on this important day. As a family run hotel we are able to provide exceptional service that you will not find in any other venue.


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 opportunities, you won’t need to travel anywhere else at all. At Fernhill we have lovingly created many beautiful places for amazing photos, just take a look at our wedding gallery to see for yourself. You will not have to go anywhere else and can spend the whole day celebrating the best day of your lives with your closest friends and family.

Wedding Testimonials

Thank you so much to Fernhill for what was an epic wedding weekend. We had such a wonderful day on Saturday. You made it so easy for us to relax and enjoy our day with our family and friends. Everyone was raving about the drinks reception down in the marquee and the amazing food. Top wedding venue... no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

My wife, Brittany, and I celebrated our wedding day at the Fernhill House Hotel on the 8th of July and to say we're eternally grateful for all of their hard work seems insufficient. Brittany and I live in Canada, so our wedding planning was primarily done from overseas. This could've been extremely difficult, stressful and/or tiresome... but from day one, the Fernhill family & staff made it not only easy but very enjoyable as well.

Brittany & Kevin Moloney

A top-class hotel with top class staff and service. A standard well above any other wedding venue. Thanks so much to you all at Fernhill for all you have done for Joe and I over the past year and a half. We will never forget all of the efforts and care you put into giving us the most perfect wedding celebrations.
