Garryvoe Hotel, Cork


There has been a hotel on the beachfront at Garryvoe since the early 1900s taking full advantage of the sea-side, the view of Ballycotton and its iconic lighthouse. The hotel has always been and continues to be a family-owned independent hotel. 

We have partnered with The Garryvoe continuously since 2016. They are well-known for being amongst the top wedding venues in Ireland. We have partnered with The Garryvoe to work on the refurbishment of various aspects of the hotel facilities, bedrooms, ballrooms & most recently their new bridal suite. 

Douglas Wallace has worked very closely with the client on all aspects of the interior design, space planning and logistical nature of their new hospitality features.

“We have been working with Adrian and the Douglas Wallace team since 2016. It has and continues to be a fantastic experience. After our initial meeting,  Adrian and all the team at Douglas Wallace took completely on board what we wanted to achieve. They set about curating ideas and plans to action tangible results. This led to a new chapter in the design and interiors of both our Hotels, the Garryvoe and the Bayview in Ballycotton.”

We have recently re-developed our Bridal suite which for us is one that showcases spaces within the hotel. As always, Adrian listened to what we were thinking and created what we feel is one of the most luxurious Bridal suites in the country.

Already the response has been phenomenal, and we are absolutely delighted. If you feel your hotel space needs a new approach and presentation, go no further than Adrian and the team at Douglas Wallace.”

“Engaging with the team at Douglas Wallace brought the breath of much needed fresh air back to the Garryvoe. Their personal approach together with their expert knowledge and commercial acumen made our continuing transformation process at Garryvoe enjoyably seamless that any independent hotel would only dream of from their design partners.”
