This venue is simply incredible. The well maintained landscape makes for incredible photos, adding that extra special touch. There are so many places to get varied photos opportunities that are easily accessible.The food was generous in serving size and absolutely delicious, cooked to perfection. DELICIOUS! But what really makes this place so amazing is the team, especially Channing and Dan. I've never come across a team so willing to go above and beyond to make our day magical. Nothing was too hard for them, even during covid when stress levels were peaking and we had to have a wedding that was well outside of the norm. Every time we would meet with Channing she was always happy, bright and bubbly. She would do anything to help us reach our goal for our day. Honestly could not recommend Glengarrif enough. Feel so fortune to have got married here.Channing and Dan - thank you so much!!

What an amazing and beautiful place. Our Wedding was perfect and this was thanks to Channing, Dan and Bryce. Not only is the venue a beautiful place with breathtaking views, the service was exceptional. From the beginning it was a stress free experience, everything was looked after by the team at Glengariff. From the first meeting to the end of the of the night. The food was absolutely delicious and the packages offered by Glengariff was amazing. Well worth the money! Channing and Dan were so friendly, organised and very professional and nothing was too difficult for them. They went out of their way to make this the most amazing day ever. From Jess and Nate

We held our wedding here in late 2018; Bryce and Channing (not Tatum) did a great job and made us feel like everything was being taken care of. The venue was simply amazing, and the food options we chose were fantastic. Sure to make any couple swoon when they visit this venue for their wedding!!

Recently photographed a wedding at Glengariff and was extremely impressed. The staff were polite, helpful and friendly, keeping the bride and groom happy and asking how they could assist me with photos. I look forward to working here again!

I had the pleasure of holding a recent Bridal Styled Shoot at Glengariff Historic Estate. The property is just breath taking and has so many gorgeous photography opportunity locations. Channing and her staff throughout the entire process were just lovely and incredibly accommodating. Glengariff Historic Estate is the perfect location for your fairytale wedding. Highly recommend this beautiful venue. ~ Janette Newell | Olive Rose Weddings & Events

We had our wedding here last week and perfection does no justice in describing this establishment. The staff could not do enough, and nothing was too much trouble, the food was excellent, the scenery fantastic and the attention to detail was above and beyond anything I could have imagined. I cannot pick apart one Hong that went wrong on the day and I have had nothing but the highest praises from all my guests about how beautiful the venue was, how great the service was and how AMAZING the food was. Thank you Channing and Dan for creating a perfect day for us xxx
