Looking for the perfect Wedding Venue in Cork? Let us paint you both a picture of how your wedding day at The Vienna Woods Country House Hotel in Cork, Ireland will unfold…
The grounds are reached by a driveway that creeps, curves and snakes up one of Glanmire’s peaks. The original Regency design building has settled comfortably into the leafy landscape that frames it, and it is perched on a height over looking the Glashaboy River below, tributary to the River Lee.
You will greet your guests as bride and groom at the original stone portico entrance to the house, dating from 1903, which is flanked by wrought iron flower arches.
The heavy set wooden door bearing an inlaid circular window is an original design of the hotel, and allows newlyweds the chance to sneak a peek at friends and families within before making their formal entrance. The debut is watched carefully by Mabel Crawford, the one time lady of the house, whose likeness, rendered in oils, sits above an original Adams fireplace dating from the 1800’s.
In the oldest part of the building where the conversation salons, and reception areas of the original house were located, appetites will be whetted with canapés and aperitifs, and seasoned with wedding chats and gossip.
The elegant architectural exterior curve of the building’s structure, most likely an influence of The Adam Style, finds its most beautiful expression in our glass room, an open space joined by a wide neo-classical arch. The eye is drawn first to the large bay windows framed by weighty textured swag curtains, and then upwards past the dancing light of the chandeliers to the swirls of stucco and masterfully restored plasterwork of the ceilings, where pheasants and peacocks flit in and out of flowers and foliage, a playful nod to the building’s original purpose as a leisure lodge.
A sunshine wedding is not always guaranteed, but the hotel's pre-reception room and balcony, the new John Peters Suite, bathes its sitters in warm light at any time of the year.
