Top 7 Reasons the Westlodge Hotel is West Cork’s Premier Wedding Venue….
- Nestled on 26 acres of landscaped gardens including waterfalls, bridges, gardens and more, the Westlodge Hotel, overlooking beautiful Bantry Bay, is the idyllic backdrop for your perfect photos eliminating the cost, the hassle and the need to travel to a separate location to take your photos.
- With 100 bedrooms, 40 newly refurbished bedrooms including our brand new bridal suite, & 9 Self Catering Cottages, there is plenty of accommodation for all of your guests and to suit all budgets.
- A luxurious marquee can be arranged on the hotel grounds for the day of your wedding and for your after party the next day at a discounted rate on request making your wedding extra special.
- Once your 5 course feast draws to a close, the Westlodge team will transform the Seafield Banqueting Suite with a complete room turn-around to compliment your evening wedding party atmosphere.
- The Hotel is surrounded by beautiful grounds teeming with greenery & flowers. There’s even a pond and a waterfall, not only providing plenty of gorgeous photo opportunities but also a unique setting for an outdoor civil ceremony or a drinks reception.
- Some unique complimentary added extras for all weddings include a prosecco cart, candy cart, fairy light backdrop, an arrival arch and mood lighting and a variety of coloured chair cover sashes to compliment your colour scheme.
- With an on-site hairdresser and make-up artist now available who can work very flexible hours to suit you, you and your bridal party can get touched up during your wedding day and can also book in for next day hair and make-up appointments without having to leave the hotel (even on Sundays!)
Our landscaped gardens are the ideal location for your perfect wedding photographs and we can also put on a barbeque for you the following day, to help continue the festivities.

Myself and my new bride Alice Keohane would like to thank you for everything you did while hosting our wedding party. We were absolutely delighted when we confirmed our date last summer, and the “big day” went perfectly. We are comfortable saying that no other venue could have better accommodated our wedding. We planned a lot of the wedding from overseas, but Pat and team were so efficient in communicating with us while remaining flexible so we were able to customize certain details on the day. We also need to thank the chef and kitchen staff who prepared great food that was served timely. Every aspect of our wedding was properly managed and we would suggest your services to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Alice & Johnny

We celebrated our wedding with the Westlodge Hotel in August 2016. Our experience dealing with them was second to none. Pat and his team were so open and made it seem like nothing was a problem. To this day, when we meet the team they are as welcoming and warm as the day we booked our wedding. As a coeliac one of my priorities was getting the food right. I found the kitchen and waiting staff outstanding and I can honestly say I have never had so many food options in a hotel-from the food tasting to the day after our wedding. The grounds of the Westlodge Hotel provided a beautiful backdrop to many of our photos despite the weather. We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day and are delighted to see a local business going from strength to strength. We would recommend any other couple to consider the Westlodge Hotel for their wedding. Kind regards, Fiona & Brian

The Westlodge Hotel Bantry is a idyllic wedding location nestled at the heart of a beautiful, peaceful Bantry Bay. The whole experience was amazing, we attended a wedding showcase day in the hotel and once we sat down with Pat Gill the general manager we were sold. We trusted that they would deliver the wedding of our dreams and they didn't disappoint. All our guests commented on the outstanding food and service. All of the staff were so helpful and made us feel like it was their first wedding they had in the hotel. No detail was forgotten which made it so relaxing for us and our guests. Thank you so much for everything the staff of the Westlodge did in making our wedding so special, we can't sing the hotels praises enough. Many thanks, Roisin & Maurice Feeney

From the moment we met with Pat & Laura we knew we had made the right decision to have our reception at The Westlodge Hotel. Every detail and request was looked after. There was no stress or worry from beginning to end. The day itself was exceptional especially with the weather it was like we were abroad and we enjoyed the drinks reception out on the grounds. Food was beautiful, the atmosphere was buzzing and the guests had a fantastic day and night. Leatitia & Denis McSweeney
