Cottages and suites can be booked by you and your guests according to the usual accommodation policies. Unfortunately no children or babies are catered for in the cottages at Bells at Killcare. We can recommend suitable, local holiday houses and local hotels, where children are able to stay if required. Check in is 3pm and check out is 11am. No guarantees can be made for early arrivals or late departures. If rooms are required to get ready in prior to the ceremony, these must be booked from the previous afternoon. Weekends are a minimum two night stay.
Exclusivity is not guaranteed unless all 25 cottages are booked by your group and the restaurant & day spa are closed for trading. POA. If all cottages and suites are not booked by your group, there is a chance there will be other Bells guests on the property, using the facilities, at the time of your wedding.
We ask that all wedding guests respect the privacy of other in-house guests, therefore the space around the swimming pool is not available for group mingling. Wedding guests must be advised to stay clear of this restricted area.
