Gougane Barra Weddings, a place of Romance...

A tiny romantic church, St. Finbarrs Oratory, sitting on an ancient island in Gougane Barra Lake in a hidden valley in West Cork in the South West of Ireland.
Gougane Barra Hotel is sitting on the side of the lake and is why romantic couples from all over the world find us, and choose to get married here every year.
We are happy to help you plan your most special day and make it the day you have dreamed of.

No need for a wedding car in Gougane Barra, you can just walk out the front door, down the steps to the lake, and along the bank of the lake to the little church. Simple as that, but a white umbrella can, occasionally be handy, and looks great in the photos. Your guests can walk back from the Oratory, to the hotel where there will be a welcome drink and tea and coffee with home-baked scones with local jam and cream waiting for them, while you take romantic photos in the forest park or on the island.
