Hip and gorgeous, Coolbawn Quay is that unique romantic venue offering couples intimacy and privacy in a charming bespoke village in North Tipperary in possibly one of the most picturesque lakeshore settings with unbroken panoramic views over Lough Derg.

For those who have never been to Coolbawn Quay, a visit is a must.   Charming in every way, the village is built in traditional style complete with the quaintest village pub, fab restaurant, amazing accommodation all overlooking a private marina with exclusive access to the lake.   With sixty bedrooms, all individually styled and scattered throughout the village on meandering paths and leafy lanes, it’s the perfect venue for family and friends to stay and gather in celebration.

Coolbawn Quay offers a variety of Reception venue options for small intimate gatherings to more lavish affairs. The choice of venue depends on guest numbers and the time of year.  The Lakeshore Pavilion overlooking the marina is stunningly beautiful and hosts up to 220 guests. Georgian in style, complete with a dramatic entrance hall, a drawing room for smaller weddings, intimate bar, exquisite banquet hall and an amazing wrap around terrace for mingling late into the night….it has the WOW factor.


Waterside vows are exchanged on the deck above the rippling water, under the shelter of softly draped gazebos, overlooking a private harbour. When the weather is inclement, and over the winter months, vows ‘al fresco’ are exchanged under the Crystal Canopy tucked away amidst the copper beech and overlooking the marina.   With dramatic seasonal backdrops, the cosiest of accommodation, turf fires, candlelight and twilight views over the lake, Coolbawn Quay is the perfect venue throughout the year.

Renowned for its exquisite food, chic décor and intimate vibe, this luxurious setting is available to book on an “exclusive use” basis. Relaxed glam is the mood and style……with a twist.
