St. Peter’s Cork:
Where modern meets magical

A seamless blend of old and new, St Peter’s Cork is a modern wedding venue set inside a former Medieval church.

Nestled in a private courtyard, a green haven tucked neatly off one of Cork’s most characterful city streets, the church was deconsecrated in 1949, although drawings of it feature in ancient maps of the area dating as far back as 1580.

The atmosphere is quiet; reverent… special. Many of St Peter’s beautiful stone memorials are hundreds of years old and steeped in story, while the whimsical secret garden winds around the building, offering a charming space for guests to mingle (and a fairytale backdrop for your wedding photographs).

Inside the grand front doors, these hallowed halls open up into a light-filled space where you can say your vows as the sun streams down from the lofty windows. A more intimate ceremony can be arranged in one of St Peter’s ethereal alcoves; our creative team is on hand to help you make your design dreams come true.

It's your story, tell it your way

Whether you want to welcome your guests at dusk by candlelight or toast your romance with cocktails in the spring sunshine, St. Peter’s Cork is a happy space where the entire experience is tailored to your taste.

No longer a religious venue, St. Peter’s has a marriage licence so that official celebrants can officiate a full civil ceremony on site. We regularly work with the Cork registry office as well as humanists and spiritual celebrants and we are always eager and excited to accommodate modern and traditional ceremonies from all cultures and belief systems.

Whether you want to welcome your guests at dusk by candlelight or toast your romance with cocktails in the spring sunshine, St. Peter’s Cork is a happy space where the entire experience is tailored to your taste.

We make wedding planning a joy

At St. Peter’s Cork we provide both ceremony-only options and full reception packages – we love hosting but how long you stay is completely up to you!

Flexibility is our speciality; we’ve hosted weddings off all sizes, from exclusive events for four guests all the way up to merry parties for 300. Our venue can hold up to 200 people seated or 300 standing.

The layout of St. Peter’s Cork allows for multiple options in terms of how and where you wish your ceremony to be set up, depending on the number of guests you are expecting and your personal preference. The space can be festooned in fresh flowers or stripped bare to enhance its handsome architectural features – it’s a blank canvas, ready and waiting to accommodate you, your guests and your chosen vendors.
