I ordered Irish stew.....there were only a few pieces of shredded meat accompanied by mashed potatoes and uncooked boiled potatoes bathed in non description juice, I did enjoy the few carrots and onions. Would not recommend this place. Others had fish and chips which was quite good.

Grand, cosy, welcoming bar, great atmosphere, witty and convivial staff, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We have been coming here for years and years. Food is tasty and plentiful, generous proportions, served well and attentively. Really enjoyed relaxing here over a glass of wine. We would highly recommend this bar/restaurant . You will be looked after. Enjoy

Stayed here last week. Good food and good staff. Smallish bedroom, allegedly a double, but far too small for two people. No chair or stool to write on or check the laptop. The bar area is far too cramped. The rubbish outside the hotel to the car park at the rear was disgraceful.

We had a family meal at Fairhill House Hotel in April. The service was chaotic as the hotel was understaffed. We ordered bottle of white wine and when it arrived, it was warm. We then waited an hour for our main course. The waitresses were all running around and did not have the time or the energy to care what... More

My cousins and I attended a family funeral and stayed 3 nights. The owner and staff could not be more gracious and kind. The accommodations were great. And the food was excellent. Over all they helped us turn an unpleasant reason to travel into an enjoyable trip.

Clonbur appears to be a very small village of 100 houses. Fairhill House is a very traditional bar with modern accommodation built on to the back. Some of the rooms have external balconies looking towards the Lough. The room we had was of a good size with a very wide bed in it. The bar at the front is very... More

Very quick overnight stop here in Clonbur. The welcome is second to none. A late night request for a sandwich was a lovely large homemade ham salad sandwich. On a cold night it was very welcome and the attitude was what can we do to help. I will be back again. Many thanks
