Weddings At Fota Island Resort


As one of the leading 5-star wedding hotels in Ireland, Fota Island Resort is the perfect luxury location for a wedding venue in Cork set amid the stunning landscape of its very own private island.

Fota Island Resort is ideally suited to host memorable weddings, civil ceremonies and informal blessings. Our dedicated wedding team would be delighted to customize a package to fully suit your requirements. From the first meeting with our Fota Island Hotel & Spa wedding team, to the departure of the last wedding guest, couples will know they have made the right choice.

Transformed by Hugh Wallace into a fresh, contemporary sequence of spaces very much about clean lines, elegance and sophisticated luxury, the Smith Barry Suite at Fota Island Resort capitalises on its generous floor space, unobstructed views and a large outdoor terrace, bringing in the garden and reflecting all natural light. Moving from the elegant pre-function space with its marble bar through the bright new ballroom and out into the landscaped terrace and lawns is now a seamless journey, enhanced by the modern opulence of the décor. 

For couples, Fota Island Resort is a very special place for a wedding, whether your preference is a traditional celebration or an intimate gathering. Avenues lined with magnificent oaks and sycamores meet you while the stunning backdrop of the island provides endless opportunities to capture those special first photographs together as newlyweds. After you've said 'I do' it's time to celebrate in style. The ornate Smith-Barry Suite opens out onto a terrace in the summer months where you can enjoy an al fresco pre-wedding drinks reception with your guests while taking in the panoramic views of the island. This classic yet modern ballroom can also be divided to cater for smaller gatherings whilst retaining access to the landscaped outdoor terrace.
