Sea Church, Ballycotton, County Cork, which is teaming up with the Bayview and Garryvoe Hotels to offer exclusive package deals

Popular Ballycotton music venue Sea Church has joined forces with both the Bayview Hotel and Garryvoe Hotel to offer a selection of packages to entertain and host visitors this winter. 

Those heading to gigs at Sea Church can now enjoy a full night away in the beautiful seaside village of Ballycotton, or in nearby Garryvoe, thanks to the link-up between the unique venue and the hotels.

This is the first time the Bayview Hotel will open in the winter;  the famous lodgings, which are normally closed from October until March, will open to offer great value package deals for a select number of intimate gigs at Sea Church. This means music fans can enjoy a night’s entertainment followed by a luxury overnight stay in the four-star premises, overlooking the ocean in the heart of Ballycotton. Those who want to make the most of the following morning can enjoy a delicious breakfast at the restaurant in Sea Church. 

There’s a fantastic selection of package deals for gig-goers to choose from this winter: Soprano Celine Byrne, who has performed in the likes of Carnegie Hall New York and the  Royal Opera House Covent Garden, will sing Christmas favourites at Sea Church on December 1st. This special event can be paired with a night at the Garryvoe Hotel. 

Meanwhile three very special events are planned in association with the Bayview Hotel over the month of December: the legendary Jerry Fish plays Sea Church on December 2nd, while singer/songwriter George Murphy, whose album ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ went triple platinum, takes to the stage at the venue on December 17th. And to finish off 2022 in style, a gala New Year’s Eve party will take place at Sea Church, where guests will be treated to delicious food and drink, and music by Ruairi De Leaster and Simon Daly. As an added surprise, a well known guest performer will be announced at a later date. All of these intimate gigs come with the option of a night at The Bayview Hotel.

John Kidney, General Manager at Sea Church said it makes perfect sense to team up with other nearby businesses: “We’re delighted that we can now offer our gig-goers the chance to have a proper night away in Ballycotton, where they can enjoy an intimate evening at Sea Church and then stroll back to the Bayview Hotel for pure luxury, or travel the short distance to Garryvoe. The package offer is very reasonably priced too, so it should make a lovely and affordable winter getaway.”

Stephen Belton is Managing Director of Garryvoe and Bayview Hotels. He said the team at Bayview can’t wait to welcome visitors this winter: “The gigs at Sea Church create a real buzz in Ballycotton and we’re delighted that we can offer rooms to attendees so they don’t have to drive back home in the dark. It’s lovely to wake up by the sea on a winter’s morning and make the most of this beautiful area. It’s a really great collaboration between two local businesses.”

The packaged events for Sea Church and the Bayview Hotel, and for Sea Church and the Garryvoe Hotel, are on a room-only basis. For more details and to book the bundle deals, you can visit
