Irish weddings are a whirlwind of fun and romance.
In fact, the big day is often so hectic that many brides and grooms only get a chance to kick back and connect with their guests the following day.
That’s why the laid-back second-day celebration has become a popular tradition among newlyweds – especially if you have friends and family travelling from abroad to mark the occasion with you.
One of Cork’s most popular venues for day-after wedding parties is nestled inside its own courtyard in the seaside village of Kinsale.
Hamlets are the ‘next day wedding experts’, with a selection of tailored ‘Wedding Day 2’ packages available specifically for these get-togethers, meaning zero hassle for couples who prefer to leave the details to the pros and enjoy themselves.
The menus are delicious and guaranteed to please everyone, with finger food platters starting from €9 per person with full barbecue and buffet options available too. There’s even a vintage fish and chip truck that serves up hangover-busting helpings of crispy fries and battered cod.
The indoor and outdoor areas have a nautical theme and Hamlets cater for groups from five all the way up to 500. Plus you can treat your guests to gin, whiskey, cocktail or craft beer tasting from €15 per person or add a prosecco reception to get the party started.
While everyone is together, what better excuse to make a day of it? If the weather is fine you could suggest that your nearest and dearest join you for a walk on the Old Head to blow off those cobwebs, then meet at Hamlets to do it all over again…
