Glebe Gardens

  • Where is it? Baltimore, West Cork
  • What is it?
  • Licenced for civil ceremonies? Yes.
  • Capacity: 40 / 100 guests
  • Perfect for: same-sex, garden enthusiasts and foodies
  • Makes me think of: tulips, walled gardens, hot house flowers gig in the natural amphitheatre and Tessa’s baking!

The idyllic Glebe Gardens is the ideal venue for weddings of all sizes and styles, be that traditional or non-traditional, though the emphasis is on hosting personal, made for you weddings.

The Glebe  team has fifteen years’ experience of designing, hosting and catering for weddings and special occasions. The sisters, Tessa, Keziah & Jojo run the show here, taking care of everything – including you. In fact, the ethos you’ll discover at Glebe Gardens is that all are welcome.

With its plentiful outdoor space, including a veranda and covered courtyard, you’ve the option of an intimate wedding reception of forty guests hosted within the restaurant. Alternatively, go large with up to 100 guests dining within the restaurant and open air courtyard. Whatever your party size, the Glebe team works with you to deliver your wedding as you want it, in their inimitable style.

Of course, I have to mention the Gardens of Glebe, which are a project of love and have been cultivated over decades. The gardens are an ideal place for your wedding photographs and Champagne reception while, in the meadow, there’s a beautiful amphitheatre which overlooks the sea. This flowing arrangement of miniature locations make Glebe Gardens a perfect spot for your wedding ceremony, band, first dance or sunset photo shoot.

I most love how the Glebe team have proudly been hosting same-sex weddings since 2007. An added plus in my book.
