We stayed for one night as part of a tour. Had a spacious room with a balcony. Comfy bed and clean, well appointed bathroom. Cozy bar area, large dining room. Fantastic dinner and breakfast. Take time to walk through the gardens with your camera!

I attended a wedding at Fernhill House Hotel last Saturday 19th July and cannot say enough about this hotel! I know that you will find it hard to get a warmer welcome than in West Cork, and Fernhill House had it in spades! Every single person working here that I encountered were courteous, friendly and helpful. The setting for a... More

I attended a wedding at the Fernhill House Hotel early in July. I stayed in Clonakilty for nearly a week, but the Fernhill House Hotel was full for part of the time, so I also stayed at O'Donovan's Hotel in central Clonakilty. The Fernhill House Hotel was OK (the wedding itself went very well), but there were a few things... More

Had a midweek break in this great hotel. Decor was simple in a refurbished older hotel. Rooms were very comfortable, staff exceptionally kind and friendly but not obtrusive. Had really lovely bar food one evening, generous portions perfectly cooked. Beautiful gardens around the hotel. The friendly, calm and tranquil atmosphere set the tone for a lovely few days break in... More
