Really stunning location on the cliff edge, hotel was beautiful and staff were so welcoming and friendly. The rooms were lovely with stunning views and very comfortable beds also couldn't fault the food. Will definitely return someday and highly recommend. It is expensive as there is no pool our spa facilities but you can get these across the bay at... More

Was only here for a wedding. Was expecting the usual warmed up hospital food, but i was pleasantly surprised. Food was hot and tasty, even the vegetables were cooked to perfection. It was nice to get gratin potatoes (instead of plain potatoes), Grilled Black Pudding for a starter was good and desserts were excellent. No idea how they feed so... More

I feel I should write two reviews for DHH. One as a wedding venue & the other as a hotel to stay in. Both get top marks. We had our wedding here & I can only echo the reviewers sentiments below. The level of service, the attention to detail, the personal service, and the feeling that the day that is... More

Fab hotel, amazing views, great food, very helpful staff. The rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location is quite spectacular. Lovely country and beach walks right on the doorstep. We will definitely be back.

This hotel is superb across the full range of requirements: comfort; friendliness; delicious food; scenic views;local amenities. It is set on a small hill overlooking the Irish Sea, and about 5 minutes' stroll to a sandy beach, even less to the golf course. The rooms are very clean and warm (it's wintertime!), and a blazing fire in the lounge area... More

They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. The function room looked fabulous. The beds are so comfortable. The... More

Dunmore House is the most beautiful place I have ever been! The only thing that tops the breathtaking sites off the coast of Clonakilty is the homely environment of the hotel and their welcoming staff. The moment I flew in, I was treated to a delicious lunch, pint of Murphy's and a gorgeous 9 holes of golf. The work week... More

My husband and I stayed here several times and it's always been lovely. The staff are helpful and friendly. The food is lovely in both the bar and restaurant. The views are beautiful and we've always been lucky enough to get a sea view. The reception area is lovely when the fire is lit for a drink.

Dunmore House is a beautiful place to stay. Well appointed rooms tastefully decorated. The two old style bars are relaxing with gas fires. The food was exceptionally good. Staff were very helpful and friendly with plenty of shared local knowledge. The bedrooms on the lower floors are exposed to traffic, both pedestrian and motor and offer no privacy if the... More
