Dream Weddings at The River Lee Hotel

What better place to celebrate your pledge of lifelong love and loyalty than a light-flooded room with unrivalled views of the tranquil River Lee and the beautiful, Medieval City of Cork. At The River Lee Hotel, with spaces that whisper luxury and exude contemporary elegance, we offer both civil ceremonies and chic, beautifully catered wedding receptions to suit every taste and pocket.

Weddings celebrated in our private dining suite, The Weir Room, enjoy the beautifully light-dappled space and exclusive access to our riverside terrace, perfect for your drinks reception and for memorable photographs with a real sense of place. The Weir Room comfortably accommodates 50 guests for a delicious sit-down meal, bespoke to you and freshly prepared by our award-winning chefs. If you’re planning a wedding on a grander scale, we are delighted to partner with The Glucksman Gallery, with its beautiful grounds, and The Honan Chapel in

University College Cork – both offer a truly unique venue for up to 150 guests, a mere five minutes from The River Lee Hotel. 


At The River Lee Hotel, we also offer the perfect location for your pre-wedding dinner or drinks, a BBQ celebration after the big day and beautifully luxurious accommodation for the wedding party, and all of your guests. To find out more, simply contact our vastly experienced, dedicated events team. 



wedding events

Our unique wedding packages at The River Lee Hotel have been designed specifically with the bridal couple in mind. We have devised a number of original elements, as we understand that all wedding couples want to instill a sense of fun for their wedding party. 

the last hurrah

Enjoy a pre wedding pamper day with your friends and family at The River Lee Hotel. Our Last Hurrah package includes champagne and canapé reception for you and 10 friends, overnight accommodation based on two people sharing per twin room and Full Irish Breakfast and late checkout the following day up to 3pm following a night on the tiles - €80 per person sharing.

meet the in-laws

This can be one of the most nerve-wracking parts of any wedding – meeting the in-laws! Why not break the ice prior to the wedding day with a relaxing afternoon at our Urban Escape day spa or a workout and swim in the pool followed by a rehearsal dinner with a difference.

Rehearsal dinner options:

  • Year round: Riverside Private Dining in The Weir Room
  • Summer: BBQ on The Weir Terrace - €30 per person
  • Autumn/Winter: Mulled wine and canapé reception with a jazz quartet - €35 per person

Prices are based on a minimum of 30 people.
