Your special day

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.

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. 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. The meal itself would be held in the vintage-style tent in the gardens (max capacity 140 guests). Bare-foot or ballgowns, we are happy to accommodate all kinds of weddings.
