What People are Saying

“Everybody at Innishannon House really worked hard for us on the day of our wedding, with special thanks to Margaret, Shane, and Denis. All the last minute details and requirements were seen to with zero fuss. The food and service were excellent; everybody’s requests were taken into account. The location, setting and exclusivity of the venue made it perfect and the whole day’s celebrations went smoothly into the early hours.”

“Had a beautiful wedding here in May 2018. Our guests loved the food, many remarked that it was the best food they’ve had at a wedding. The location is a handy 20 minutes outside Cork City, and the house overlooks the Bandon river which makes for a stunning setting for a summer wedding. The staff were on the ball the entire time and took all the stress out of planning a wedding, and the result was an unforgettable day for all.”

“We got married in Inishannon last June and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough! The house itself is gorgeous and gives a lovely homely feel to the occasion. In addition to this, the stunning gardens overlooking the river was the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos. Margaret and Shane were very easy to deal with, open to suggestions when it came to the planning of the day. A special mention to Karen (the wine connisseour!) who also kept the show running, she couldn’t have been more helpful! 

Our food was AMAZING!!!!! It was obvious that it was cooked to order and served straight from pan to plate. The feedback from all our guests was that it was outstanding. As two wannabe-foodies we couldn’t have been happier! 

We had 140 guests and while the venue does have limited accommodation, Kinsale with it’s many hotels and bnbs is close by. If you choose Inishannon as your wedding venue, you absolutely won’t regret it. Our only complaint is that we don’t get to do it all again this summer!!!!!”
