“Sol y Sombra was, without a doubt, the best choice for us and exceeded our expectations” Carol & Dave July 2018
Have you ever wished you could bring the beauty of a wedding ceremony with you to the reception, minus all the formality? No matter how adorned a hotel wedding might be, sometimes you just want a canvas that doesn’t double as a conference room — a great, big box. At Sol y Sombra, you can finally step outside of the box.
An award-winning venue for our alternative approach to couples’ special days, Sol y Sombra hosts a wide range of wedding celebrations — from traditional Irish banquet style to multi-course, family-style tapas tasting dinners, from late-night dance and wedding bands to fire breathers and silent discos. Our vaulted ceilings are the limit.
By selecting Sol y Sombra for your wedding celebration, you also get seasoned and certified experts without any of the pretension: experienced wedding planners and coordinators, a celebrated chef and food that’s been recommended twice in the Michelin guide, a Level III Sommelier to lead you to the perfect wine pairing — even tourism specialists for an expanded Reeks District experience and locating the perfect spot for your wedding photographs.
Approachable. Professional. Flexible. Creative. This is the Sol y Sombra way.
Let us help you stretch tradition to new heights.
Weddings from Abroad
Living outside Kerry or even Ireland? No problem
“We had our wedding ceremony and party in Sol Y Sombra… It was without a doubt the best choice for us and exceeded our expectations. When we began the planning process with Cliodhna we were overseas… Cliodhna was so accommodating to us and we knew we were in good hands.” – Carol & Dave July 2018
Whether you are Irish but live abroad, or Kerry is the dream location for your wedding, Sol y Sombra makes planning your nuptials from afar a piece of cake — the wedding kind.
Our experienced coordinators take the stress out of wedding planning, offering advice, resources (including those related to marriage processes in Ireland) and contacts for every conceivable need, whether it’s guest accommodations, suppliers, entertainment, stunning photo destinations or local activities. We know planning from a distance can be challenging, and that’s why we’re happy to arrange phone calls or video chats at a time that suits you and your partner — even from distant time zones. We can accommodate a trusted friend or family member to take a tour in your place or even offer you a virtual tour from the comfort of your home, if you or someone is unable to visit in person.
Let us help make your planning experience easy and enjoyable.
