About this venue

Since 1745, Eccles Hotel has been welcoming wedding couples to this idyllic part of West Cork. With views over the beautiful Bantry Bay, this is a wedding venue like no other. Situated a short driving distance from the delightful St. Finbarr’s Church in romantic Gougane Barra, we will help you create the memories of a lifetime.

From your first enquiry to when the final guest departs and everything in between, Rose, our wedding coordinator, is there to ensure that your special day runs smoothly. We can welcome up to 250 guests, and we are on hand to organise everything from flowers to fizz, music to menus, all in the magnificent setting of our Ilnacullin suite, overlooking the stunning Bantry Bay. Our seasonal wedding menus and drinks reception include locally sourced food, from West Cork Artisan food producers. We can also accommodate smaller wedding parties and each wedding will receive the same care and attention to detail.

Real Wedding


We got married here in June 2018 and we were so delighted we chose Eccles. It's got bags full of old world charm and it's in an amazing location in Glengarriff Bay with spectacular sea views from the ballroom. We were really grateful for the outdoor terrace as the weather was magnificent. However the best thing about Eccles was their people and the friendly atmosphere. Rose, Eccles wedding planner was just so pleasant and professional; she really took care of everything! David the manager was really helpful and you can sense his passion for the hotel. Eddie the chef was very accommodating (we changed the dessert choice a week before the big day!) and his food was devine. Yeats Suite (the bridal suite) was one of the nicest rooms we were ever in. All in all, it was amazing!

We had our wedding reception at The Eccles Hotel on the 8th of June. Right from arriving on Friday night, we had a fantastic welcome. On the Saturday, everything flowed to perfection from the morning til the early hours of Sunday. The ballroom setup, the canapes, the late night snacks, all the way down to the purple edible flower petals decorating the refreshing sorbet that coordinated with the flower colour theme, nothing was a hassle. Our every need was catered for. The Eccles is the icing on the cake that is the stunning West Cork village of Glengariff. Steamed in history, the warm homely environment provides an immediate sense of relaxation and comfort. All our guests were overwhelmed by the service and some are booking a return trip. Our sincerest thanks to Rose, Eddie and all the staff for making our special day one to remember for a long time to come. We're already looking forward to booking our Winter weekend getaway with spa included!!
