Our friends are STILL talking about the food, the guests are still blown away by the fact that they were all known on a first name basis, my whole family still smiles every time we talk about our two days, and it still brings a tear to my eye to think about how completely and utterly gutted I was to have to leave there on the Sunday.

Gay Marriages & Blessings

The Civil Partnership Bill within the Social Welfare system passed through the final stages of Government approval on 17 December 2010.  This allows same sex couples to legally register with the HSE registrar.  And then the referendum in 2015 allowed for full marriages between same-sex couples.  We have held numerous ceremonies onsite.  The registration procedure is the same as Civil Ceremonies and you need to give the same three month notice period.

We have found the whole landscape of the wedding business change dramatically.  And because of the eclectic decor and style of our property, exclusive use, privacy, proximity to Cork Airport, improved motorway network plus the many attractions of Kinsale, that this affords couples a wonderful platform for celebrating the long awaited granting of their rights.

It now means that Gay couples can choose Ireland for their special day rather than having to travel overseas and also means that the country is also a perfect ’Gay Destination Wedding’ location for the first time.
