Celebrating its 51st anniversary this year is the family-run Ballymaloe Hotel, famed for its food and its idyllic setting in 400 acres of green land with ancient woodland and tranquil ponds. You can make a big entrance on the day by arriving at the hotel by helicopter, enjoying a bird’s eye view of the lush countryside of East Cork.
Flexibility is key at Ballymaloe and everything comes with a portion of charm – have 180 guests in the newly-converted 17th century grainstore – an elegant high-roofed space - or choose an intimate do in a small dining room. The hotel is well-known for its high-class food – it has its own cookery school too – so expect your wedding breakfast to be top notch with an emphasis on fresh home-grown quality produce – washed down with some celebratory bubbly of course!
