A bit higglety pigglety but absolutely charming. I met the owner at check in, which was quite late and she was lovely and gave me a great rate for the night. It is right in the centre of town with a great pub attached. The hotel could probably benefit from having money spent on it. BUT I would suggest that... More

If you're looking for a hotel with chrome and glass, then this is not for you. If you are looking for a more 'traditional' place to lay your head then go no further. The hotel is situated in the very centre of the town. Parking is either on the street, in a small private car park (first come first served),... More

stay off the tourist path and a great hotel in a great town. The owners are very friendly and make your stay special from the beginning. the rooms are clean and spacious, with a good pub attached for evening enjoyment and plenty of room to just sit. Internet was available for free.

This was our second time staying at O'Donovan's when visiting our Irish cousins. The O'Donovan family is always so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and neat and very comfortable. We had two rooms at the back, each with a balcony, and noise was never a problem. Breakfasts are good and the music at night is wonderful! We will... More

They were the only place we stayed that had AC, which we actually needed. They put us in a family room which was spacious the first night. When we decided to stay another night the room was already booked but got 2 rooms right across from each other. The man working the front desk was very pleasant, helpful & informative.

I visited Clonakilty recently for a wedding and was initially disappointed that the venue (the Fernhill House Hotel, also in Clonakilty) did not have enough room on some nights of my trip. The wedding planner recommended O'Donovan's quite apologetically. It seems to have a reputation as a bit rougher than some of the other accommodation in town, but I don't... More
