We attended a wedding here last week and I fell in love with the grounds. At night , there are small lights turned on and it makes it so magical. The food was very impressive. I could not fault one thing other than you get to much. It is well worth the visit. The staff were so nice and did... More

I treated my Mum, aunt and sister to Afternoon tea in Fernhill for my Mums Birthday. The staff are so friendly and attentive. The table was set beautifully, with little china cups and plates and fresh flowers on all the tables. The food was delicious and plentiful. We all agreed the homemade lemon drizzle cake and lemon macaroons were amazing!... More

My partner and I spent two nights in this lovely hotel, just outside of Clonakilty town. It is a great location with lovely gardens and views of the surrounding countryside. It is a major wedding venue and this made for an interesting walk as we checked out all the options they offered to wedding planners, this is also what they... More

We stayed here for a 2 night break to celebrate our wedding anniversary. On arrival we were told our room wasn't ready and that we could have a drink in the bar. As the Ireland game was on, the tiny bar area was full so we took our drinks and sat in the lobby area. While this was fairly comfortable,... More

We got married here in July 2016 and I cannot speak highly enough of this venue. The welcome we received on our first viewing of the venue from Caroline won us over and the pre-wedding communication and organisation was A+ without any stress.

This was one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed in at home or abroad. The whole place, including the beautiful gardens, could not be better. It is a little bit outside the town but I am a non-drinker so that did not inconvenience me. The staff were very welcoming and friendly without being in your face, the food... More
