Holding only one Wedding a day means you have the undivided attention of our dedicated

Wedding Team to assist you to have a unique, personalised Civil Ceremony down to the final touches.

Humanist Ceremonies

Humanist Wedding and Partnership ceremonies are all about a couple celebrating their love for each other and making a commitment to one another in the company of those people who are important to them.  This is done with appropriate, well-chosen words, readings and music and the Maritime Hotel can provide the perfect location for this beautiful celebration. 

Couples wanting non-religious weddings which are very personal and meaningful have been availing of Humanist ceremonies for the past couple of decades. However, in order for the marriage to be legally binding, those couples have had to have a civil ceremony as well.

We've put together a list of local churches which are most popular among couples who have celebrated their wedding at The Maritime Hotel.

The Sacred Heart Church, Glengarriff, is the local Roman Catholic church and is located on the Kenmare side of the village.
It was erected in 1902. It replaced the “Old Chapel” in the burial grounds at Cappyaughna which had been built in 1829. The “Old Chapel” at Cappyaughna is still standing, having been renovated and converted into a Parochial Hall.

Enjoy the stunning setting of Gougane Barra to make your special day a magical occasion

Gougane Barra is located in a beautiful part of the South West of Ireland, less than 30 minutes from The Maritime Hotel and ideal if you are looking for some of Irelands scenic countryside for your special day.

The area of Gougane Barra can be visited at any time of the year but it is especially beautiful in the Summer months. On entering Gougane Barra you are met with the natural beauty of the hills which tower over Gougane Barra Lake and then the well-known St Finbarr's Oratory or Small Church out in the Lake on the little island all on its own. It must be the most photographed Church in this part of Ireland and many a happy wedding have enjoyed this wonderful setting for their photographs as it is a truly magical and peaceful location in a stunning setting.


Just behind the Oratory are the remains of St Finbarr's monastery from the 6th century, with beautiful old stations of the cross above the ancient prayer cells. It was here that St Finbarr spent time, before making his way to Cork. The Oratory also has lovely stained glass windows. The scenery in this area is breath taking and it offers the visitor a little time out in this peaceful valley.
Gougane Barra is less than a 30-minute drive from Bantry and just a 1 hr 30-minute drive from Cork (driving via Ballingeary, and on through Inchigeela). Gougane Barra is also the same distance from Kenmare, County Kerry.


Location: Guágan Barra Forest Park is located 5km west of Ballingeary on R584 to Bantry, at the Pass of Keimaneigh.
