"My husband and I have a family holiday cottage in Baltimore, and I have to say the next best thing to our house is the Glebe. We had visited the glebe many time for breakfast/lunch/dinner and afternoon tea, and each time we walk away saying "that place is amazing" wish we had one like this in England!!! Everything about the Glebe is 10/10. Great atmosphere, food, drink and most importantly the chocolate mousse cake to die for! We love the fact that all the food is either grown at the Glebe, and if it's not it is locally sourced. Whatever the time of year, the Glebe only serve seasonal food which gives you the feeling that your only eating fresh food.
That was the deciding factor for my husband and I, to have our wedding at the Glebe. Not only was it because of the ethos of the Glebe and their food, but also for its setting. It has the most incredible gardens for photos. Loads of colour, greenery and a beautiful stream running through the gardens. So whatever your style you can make it as fancy or as casual as you like.
Tessa and family could not have done enough for my husband and I, running up to the wedding, during and after. We were given a choice of 4 for each course, starters, mains and desserts that Tess had designed based on foods that Ross and I loved, but also what was in season. This was pure luxury for us and our guests.
We had 60 guests at the Glebe which was perfect, he had canapés and fizz on the lawn with a lovely 3 peace Irish band playing in the background. Followed by an incredible 3 course meal on the patio under the sail mast. We were extremely lucky to have the most incredible weather, so everything was outside. We were given the choice to either bring our own alcohol and pay corkage per bottle or pay for wine and spirits from the Glebe. We went for option A purely because my husband and I have a friend who owns a Vineyard, and it was too good to be true.
I really can't praise the Glebe enough; they really were the best wedding hosts ever. All of our guest said that it was the best wedding food they had ever had, and they loved the simplicity of what the Glebe had to offer."

The Glebe Gardens is a family run business with a truly unique ethos. They grow, prepare and serve the most exceptional food in a very earthy, magical setting deep in the heart of West Cork. I chose The Glebe as the venue to host my wedding reception because of this very reason. On the day everything they said they would do they did and more. The place looked magical with wild flowers in jam jars, soft fairy lights, crisp white table cloths. People felt instantly at home which I think is very rare at wedding receptions. Their team took full control, so we could relax and enjoy our day with friends and family. An absolutely wonderful day was had by all. Thank you

"We always pictured getting married outdoors in a garden with a relaxed ceremony with our closest friends and family. However given the unpredictability of weather in Ireland we realized this may just have to remain a dream....until.....we popped into Glebe Gardens for a coffee one day and found exactly what we were looking for! We had the most wonderful wedding ceremony and reception at Glebe Gardens. From the moment we first met Tessa and the team at Glebe we knew we were in safe hands! The whole planning experience with them was such a joy, so relaxed and stress free. Good food was very important to us and Glebe did not disappoint! Organic, local, delicious and beautifully presented, the food was exceptional and everybody had seconds! It's such a beautiful back drop for a special celebration and every photo looks pretty! We wouldn't have changed a thing! Look forward to visiting for our anniversary!"
