TLC’s Top Three Self-Catering Party Venues in Cork

Inish Beg Estate

Inish Beg is a private island estate with a road bridge, accessible by car in beautiful West Cork Ireland. It is just a few miles from the thriving market town of Skibbereen and the idyllic little port of Baltimore.  If you want a spectacular venue deep in West Cork then look no further.

TLC Foods had the amazing opportunity to cater for a few weddings at this estate, so we know how magical this place really is. From canape parties in the boathouse to fully served hot buffet in the marquee for the wedding feast. This is also the perfect venue to chill out the day after with a BBQ or Pizza party. With 96 acres to wander around and a fully heated pool, there is plenty for your guests to do the day after the wedding.

Maybe you are celebrating a milestone birthday or anniversary. This location is not only suited to weddings but to any type of party imaginable. Inish Beg has a huge range of self-catering cottages to choose from. Maybe you are hopping off the plane or boat and need to stock up your self-catering cottage, we are en route to West Cork. We offer order and collect service, and will have your order ready for you to pick up on your way.

Blackwater Castle

Imagine renting a castle for your wedding or family gathering. This exceptional castle is located in the heart of Southern Ireland. Nestled in the fertile hills of North Cork near the picturesque village of Castletownroche.  Blackwater Castle is the original seat of the FitzHugh/Roche Family who travelled to Ireland with Strongbow in the late twelfth century.

The Castle sleeps 23 across 9 suites while larger groups can be accommodated in the Courtyard which sleeps a further 47.  Again TLC  had the honour of catering a small intimate wedding at this venue. The couple opted for a BBQ for their wedding, which was just perfect in this setting, with much outdoor space for everyone to enjoy. TLC can offer many different options here from buffets to banquets. The choice is yours.


Cork County Cricket Club

If you want to hold your party somewhere quaint and quirky but not too far from the city then the Cork County Cricket Club should be somewhere you check out. A newly renovated bar and recently restored Pavillion makes this the perfect venue for a small informal wedding.

TLC catered a wedding here where the couple erected a larger marquee on the grounds. They chose pizzas as their canape option. TLC brought along the authentic stone based oven, homemade dough and baked fresh delicious pizzas in front of the guests. Eating pizza on the cricket lawn, in your finery to the backdrop of the city, creates a very special ambience.

The cricket club is also perfect for any other type of party and we have catered many functions here, from 21st parties to wedding anniversaries. it certainly does not disappoint.

That’s our top three venues, covering three very different areas of Cork County.
