If Eccles Hotel and Spa were a person they’d be that West Cork character who’s full of soul, warmth and great craic; a vintage soul who combines contemporary qualities and comforts with old-school touches.

As described in the Irish Times, “It is the perfect antidote to homogenous modern hotels. The welcome is genuine, the food is excellent and the rooms are old-world comfortable, with superb views through gorgeous sash windows.” I might just add that Marie is the new wedding manager in 2020 so you’re in her safe and capable hands as she has years of experience planning west cork weddings and events.

Steeped in 250 years of rich history, Eccles Hotel is situated in Glengarriff. It overlooks Bantry bay and Garinish island on a stunning stretch of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way so you’re guaranteed stunning views, which means you and your photographer will have such fun capturing wonderful sky- and waterscapes to add an epic natural quality to your wedding photographs. The festival lights add a touch of festival fun in the evening too. Of course, there’s also the spa where you can take some chill and pamper time before or after the wedding, because everyone deserves TLC.

Located close to St. Finbarr’s Church in romantic Gougane Barra, Eccles Hotel and Spa can welcome up to 250 guests. And, it’s just recently been awarded 4-stars. WOW!!
