This was by far one of the best hotels we've stayed in. Maeve was friendly and helpful. We immediately felt at home. The breakfasts were simply amazing! A full Irish, or whatever else you wanted. Everything was scrupulously clean. Maeve has the gift of being helpful without being intrusive. Within walking distance of Clonakilty. I would recommend this hotel to... More

Macliam Lodge is lovely, spotlessly clean family run accommodation on the edge of Clonakilty. We stayed for two nights and enjoyed a comfortable en-suite room with TV, excellent wi-fi, tea & coffee, bath-robes and a luxurious walk-in shower. Breakfast was better than many hotels and extra servings were 'no problem at all' Despite being full to capacity there was no... More

4 of us stayed here for 2 nights to attend a college friend's wedding nearby and can not recommend it more highly. The rooms were clean, modern and bright. The wifi was fast. The breakfasts were great. One of my friends is on a Gluten free diet and she said it was one of the best gluten free breakfasts she... More

I went with a friend for one night. I had lived in Clonakilty before and I had been in others BnB before for a way cheaper price. We booked this one because we were in Cork city and needed a place to stay there last minute. We thought that 90 euros was a bit too much but didn't want to... More

Would stay here again it was spotless and warm. Great location and excellent parking. Didn't wake for the breakfast either stays but I do think 10 o clock cut off is a bit early for the weekend mornings. On saying that it's not the worst complaint and wouldn't turn me off booking in again. It's so handy for local weddings.
