We recently had our wedding there over the bank holiday weekend, and we chose this venue a year ago for our wedding, we booked it for 2 nights and had around 100 people, and we both were so delighted with the venue and our choice. The food was unreal and the service was second to none. The staff, Mary, Geraldine,... More

You have to be persistent to get a room in this beautiful 17th century house. The only signs at the entrance suggest that it just does weddings. If you arrive after 5 pm you will find that the Reception is closed and you will have to knock on the door at the Main House. But it is worth it. The... More

Great wedding venue. Beautiful country house and well kept. Our bedroom was gorgeous and loved the little added extras in the room. The food served for both the wedding meal and evening snacks were of exceptional quality and delicious. Bar staff were a bit young and incompetent and the management weren't very accommodating. Breakfast was lovely BUT they do not... More

We recently attended a family wedding here and it was without a doubt the nicest wedding venue we have ever been to. The privacy and intimacy was wonderful. The food and staff were outstanding. We stayed a night in one of the cottages which was perfect for our group. The cottage was very spacious and comfortable with all mod cons.... More

During our recent trip to Ireland, I had booked a stay at the Barnabrow Country House and we weren't sure if we wanted to go since we had done a fair amount of driving and weren't looking forward to adding driving time to the trip. As it turns out, it was the nicest place we stayed in all of Ireland.... More

We had our wedding here recently, and had the most amazing day. It really is a beautiful wedding venue, and we were lucky enough to have the weather on our side as well. We had our civil ceremony here also, in the conservatory, which was perfect. Because we were fortunate enough that the sun was splitting the stones, everyone was... More

I had the pleasure of holding my wedding reception at barnabrow recently. The staff were exceptionally helpful in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself. We were blessed with amazing weather and barnabrow looked amazing just what we wanted a private retreat in the beautiful rural setting of Cloyne surrounded by our closest friends and family.... More
