Your Big Day Your Way at ECCLES Hotel

Steeped in over 250 years of history, heritage and romance, ECCLES Hotel in Glengarriff is a stunning West Cork wedding venue, and your opportunity to experience true vintage. One look at the sparkling sea views that stretch out across Bantry Bay and you’ll know why it was an inspiring retreat for literary and screen greats like William Makepeace Thackeray, George Bernard Shaw, William Butler Yeats and Maureen O’Hara.

The hotel’s new owners, Ray Byrne of Wineport Lodge, a Blue Book Property, renowned wedding venue and host for many series of ‘The Restaurant’ TV show, along with Eoin Doyle of Brook Lodge Hotel in Wicklow – one of Ireland’s leading wedding venues – together bring to a proven track record of delivering excellence in hospitality, and hosting weddings to remember, to their new venture.
