We got married in the Beara Coast Hotel in Nov 2018. Mark and his team were a pleasure to deal with, very professional and calming!! All our guests(90% of which were from outside the area) raved about the food, staff and the atmosphere in the hotel. We would highly recommend Bears Coast to any couples thinking getting married in the beautiful West Cork region!!

We had the perfect day - I can't imagine a better experience and a more flexible team. An excellent venue on our doorstep. Friends and family from Cork/Kerry, UK and internationally agreed the venue compared very favourably to more established venues. The food and service were everything we hoped for and have come to expect. Highly recommended.

We had our humanist ceremony, reception and meal all at the venue- the staff could have not been more flexible helping us with personalised menu choices, facilitating all our decor ideas, helping us set up a video-link for outside guests, and even on the weekend suggested moving the drinks reception to outside as we were lucky enough to have great weather. For us , the stand out was the high calibre food- it tasted and looked wonderful, and the quality of service was impressive for 200 guests. For anyone looking for a high quality coastal venue, or somewhere where the staff are flexible and willing to help you build a plan around your personal vision for the day, then we would strongly recommend the Beara Coast Hotel! :)

Dear Laragh & Brian, Your wedding took in many different aspects for us and as a consequence was a very different but very enjoyable experience from an organisational point of view. We are all delighted that you and your guests had an enjoyable experience. Mark & Mark and team.

We had our wedding reception here in March 2017, it was a small wedding of 55 people, we got married in the sacred heart church in Glengarrif.We cannot praise this Hotel highly enough, everything was perfect from start to finish . We only visited the hotel once in the December before the wedding ! Everything was then communicated by email with Sarah Jane , nothing was a problem for Sarah Jane in the organising of the reception ! Or Mark the General Manager, upon arrival we had a drink reception and afternoon tea tiers! Followed by our meal which we had in their dining room they also have a function for larger weddings,the dining room was all decorated by the hotel which we left in their capable hands and was done so tastefully , these people know how to do a wedding . The food was excellent from start to finish , we then had a band in the dining room followed by silent disco! We could not fault this hotel in any way, also breakfast in this hotel is a must everything cooked too order! If anyone is thinking of having their wedding reception in this hotel , we couldn't recommend it highly enough! I'm looking forward to a return visit. This Hotel is a hidden gem thank you Mark , Sarah Jane for making our day so special

Having finally got round to writing our review of our wedding at The Beara Coast Hotel, my wife and I cannot recommend this place enough. We fell in love with the views over looking the town, mountains and out to the Atlantic from the wedding breakfast room immediately. Coming from and living in Manchester, England for the wedding we had to rely on Mark and Mark the owners and Sarah-Jane to make our vision come true and they did just that. They were so helpful from the moment we decided we wanted to get married at The Beara Coast to the moment we left a married couple. The food, prepared by Mark was amazing, using fresh sea food and local produce to make a gorgeous meal which everybody raved about from start to finish! The function room was brilliant, decorated very tastefully & a great size with the bar in it too. The bedrooms are lovely, we stayed in the honeymoon suite which was perfect & used the large family room for all the (8) bridesmaids to get ready in - a perfect space. Sarah-Jane was on hand at ALL times be it 1st thing in the morning or last thing at night to make the best day of our lives. The bar staff, waiters and waitresses were outstanding and couldn't do enough for us, they really made us feel a part of the Beara Coast family. We cannot recommend this place enough for a wedding venue. We have made fond memories and great friends and can't wait to return.

Dear James & Katie. Thank you both so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. Mark, Mark, the Team and I really appreciate your kind words. It was great getting to know you both over the year leading up to the wedding. You were an absolute pleasure to work with. Katie, you made it so easy for us as you knew exactly what you wanted from the smallest detail. I just hope that the day matched your dreams. James, well done, you did a great job with the Table Names :) Thank you once again for choosing The Beara Coast to hold your reception. It is a Wedding I will always remember. Congrats Mr & Mrs Clarke. Wishing you an amazing life together. Hope to see you again soon.

Firstly I would like to thank all the staff at the Beara Coast Hotel for the most amazing wedding. The location speaks for itself with unreal scenery of the Beara coast. We got married in Glengarriff Church on 16th September and then drove on to Castletownbere for the reception. We couldn’t have asked for better. We wanted to get married at a coastal location in west Cork so when we first visited the Beara Coast Hotel we knew we were on to a winner. The place oozes luxury, intimacy and great service. The G&T/Prosecco drinks reception throughout the reception and bar area set the tone for a day of celebration and fun. We had 160 at our wedding but the function room can cater for more or less parties easily with loads of windows looking on to the seafront; plenty accommodation options also for all crowd sizes throughout the town. Food was the talk of the wedding party with a great selection of delights such as the Castletownbere seafood bake for starters. Presentation and taste of all our food choices was top class. The Beara Coast is only reopened the last year. I can honestly say it carries the wow and unique factor on location, food and service. Can we do it all again!!! Thanks so much Mark, Mark, Sarah Jane, Ger and all the staff

Cannot reccommend highly enough. Firstly we had a civil cermony in a nearby location at Berehaven Lodge and the hotel staff looked after all of it. The venue decoration was magical. The setting there is amazing overlooking the harbour. The reception was held in beara coast hotel . Again attention to detail was plain to be seen everywhere. The location is fabulous. Took our photos on the front lawn in the evening sun with the port and mountains in the background. The food for our meal was outstanding. The bridal suite was beautiful. The management and team here outdid themselves for our wedding. Thanks to everyone at beara coast hotel.
