Ballinacurra House has been voted the Best Exclusive Hire Property by the Luxury Travel Awards and is perfect for both small intimate weddings and larger celebrations.

We are not a hotel where you would be sharing the venue with anyone else – we are your own unique country estate and only ever Strictly Private. If you are looking for something other than a “factory packaged wedding”, we offer you the privacy and freedom to plan your day as you please. It is the biggest day of your life and should reflect your own personal style – whether it be a more traditional wedding or something simple, fun or unique.

Ballinacurra House is located a five minute drive away from the “Ultimate wedding destination” of Kinsale, a heritage town with its spectacular harbour, forts and culinary reputation which contributes to the “destination wedding” atmosphere.

With over 30 years of event planning experience, the owners Des and Lisa McGahan work attentively with you to plan your wedding, manage your budget and lend their expertise to design a bespoke private wedding that is unique to your taste and style. We have also handpicked a team of professional and personable staff including your own in-house wedding co-ordinator, personal chef, maitre d’ and service staff to cater to your every need.

The manor house was built in the late 1700’s with its first recorded owner of John Swete Esquire, the High Sheriff of Cork. The House was completely renovated from 2000 – 2003 to its current modern standards.

Every room in the house has been meticulously themed and offers 22 suites throughout the Main house, Cottage and Coach House as well as various lounge and entertainment rooms.

Whether you are looking for an elegant formal sit down dinner for your Wedding Day, a casual family rehearsal dinner the night before or a fun barbecue for your ‘recovery day’, we have many different dining options. Our maximum capacity is 180 people using the conjoined Ballroom and Garden room or smaller groups can use the Garden room for up to 132 people or the Ballroom for up to 50 people.
