Creating West Cork memories at the Celtic Ross Hotel

With over 25 years of experience celebrating unforgettable weddings, the four-star Celtic Ross Hotel prides itself in planning and executing, not just the perfect wedding celebration, but ‘your’ perfect wedding celebration. 

A tailored menu for your day combined with the team’s love for local produce and passion for cooking is the perfect recipe for a truly memorable taste of some of that West Cork magic. 

Set against the tranquil Rosscarbery Estuary, with views out to the sea and Galley Head beyond, the Celtic Ross Hotel, with its unique blend of location, understated luxury, relaxed atmosphere and friendly yet professional service, offers you an exceptional venue for your West Cork wedding. As you dine as newly-weds, you will enjoy breathtaking views of Rosscarbery Bay.

Just moments away from the hotel you can stroll hand-in-hand through the dunes on The Warren Strand. With soft sand underfoot and the Atlantic lapping gently at the shore it offers a beautifully romantic backdrop for the perfect wedding photographs.

The Celtic Ross is an approved Civil Ceremony Venue, so your ceremony can take place in the Ardagh Suite, Tower Gallery and weather-permitting in the outdoor Courtyard area. All locations offer stunning views of Rosscarbery Bay and, after the ceremony, couples have the option of having their reception in one of the hotel banqueting suites.

Post-Covid, the hotel has experienced an increase in the number of newly-engaged couples enquiring about more intimate weddings including civil, humanist and, in particular, beach ceremonies. Beach weddings have become increasingly popular due to the wonderful surroundings of Rosscarbery and the hotel’s extensive expertise in delivering a unique bespoke wedding day.   

Paula and Mark recently celebrated their special day at the Celtic Ross Hotel: “From the first day when we came to view the hotel, the team at the Celtic Ross accommodated us fantastically – the staff truly drew us in with their personalities. Management and every member of staff were so friendly and helpful, and that continued throughout our experience with the Celtic Ross.

“Our meetings ran smoothly, and changes we asked for due to Covid were no problem for the team. Eva and Deborah, our fabulous wedding coordinators, tailored the perfect wedding package to suit our needs. 

“Our family from abroad came and stayed in the hotel for a few days. They could not speak more highly of their stay. The location is so handy – and overlooking the water was the cherry on top! Just stunning!

“The hotel catered for a large family meal the night before our wedding, and the food that evening, as well as of course on the wedding day itself, was beautiful. So delicious! 

“We got beautiful wedding photographs on the bridge, with the hotel in the background, as well as photographs on the pier across the road.

“We can’t recommend the Celtic Ross enough, and such a huge thank you to Eva and her team who made sure our day ran on time and everyone was at ease and really enjoyed themselves. 

“We can’t wait to come and stay again for our one year anniversary. Thank you all.’’
