We stayed at Fernill House with some of our children and grandchildren ....10 of us in all. Everything about our stay was perfect. The entire staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was not the normal buffet but cooked to order. Dinner was delicious. Family members took the time to chat with us and recommend places to see. We will definitely return to this wonderfully run family house.

Where do I even begin. We had our wedding in Fernhill May this year. We had originally booked for June 2020 but with covid had to change dates 4 different times! The wedding coordinator Ann is an absolute gem, every time we needed to move dates Ann and the team were so accommodating. Any question or anything I needed in the run up to the big day was never too big or small. Ann and the team at Fernhill could not have done enough for us and on the day of the wedding everything ran so well and we were made to feel completely at ease. We have been to Fernhill on many occasions for lunches/afternoon tea/dinner and every time we go there we receive the same amazing service. The O’Neill family have really created such a special atmosphere at Fernhill and you can see that by the genuine nature of all of their staff who go above and beyond for everyone that walks through the doors. I couldn’t recommend Fernhill highly enough whether it’s for a wedding, occasion or just a few days away - you will love it. Thanks again to Ann and all the team for an amazing day.

We got married in Fernhill House Hotel in October 2021. We had the official registration of our marriage in the Acorn room which was lovely and cosy, followed by a dinner in the Woodfield room with just our two families present. We then had a larger ceremony in the marquee in the gardens and reception in the hotel a few days later. Both days were so lovely and different, which just shows that Fernhill can cater for all wedding sizes. I always wanted to get married in Fernhill the fact that it’s so local to both of us and it’s hard to beat it with food, friendly staff and facilities such as the gardens and marquee. Neil and Ann were so helpful throughout the planning of the two days there and were willing to answer any questions we had and do whatever they could to make our day special. Ann is brilliant at her job and made everything so relaxed because you knew she had everything organised and ready to go. It's no wonder they won best wedding venue in Ireland! We were so happy that we had our special day here, this wasn't our first event at Fernhill and it won't be the last! Thank you to the O' Neill family, Ann Cullinane & all the staff for making our day so special, Lorraine & Danny O'Connor.

We were very lucky to have our wedding on the 11th of December 2021 with all our family and friends and it was the most amazing day from start to finish. We cannot recommend Fernhill House Hotel enough! Our original date was to be in December 2020 but because of Covid we rescheduled to 2021 and this change of date was made possible with the unending support and help from Ann, the wedding coordinator. The wait was definitely worth it!! Ann is incredible at her job and went above and beyond to make our dream day come true. The level of detail from the O' Neill family makes Fernhill such a special place and they really couldn't have done any more for us. The food, decor, accommodation, gardens, atmosphere, and the service were all amazing. A special thank you to Neil who looked after us on the day. We felt so at ease and it completely surpassed all expectations. We had a lot of guests travelling a long distance to be with us and they were all so highly complimentary towards the quality of the food, the standard of service on the day and also the beautiful breakfast that we all had the following morning. The Christmas decorations were an added bonus! They were absolutely beautiful and look fabulous in our photos. We really had the best day of our lives. So thank you to the O' Neill family, Ann Cullinane & all the incredible staff for giving us a day we will always remember. Deirdre & Adrian Kirby

We were lucky enough to have our wedding in beautiful Fernhil House Hotel on the 2nd August 2021. It was a wonderful day, we both loved every minute of it and would do it all again in a heart beat. In the lead up to the big day, the staff at Fernhil house were incredible. Ann the wedding coordinator was so helpful and friendly…nothing was ever an issue. She put us at such ease, we had the most relaxed and enjoyable wedding day as we were so confident that Fernhil would deliver. On the wedding day and since the day, our guests can only say fantastic things about the hotel.... the reception in Marquee, the quality of the food, the bar, the rooms, etc. All exceptional. The attention to detail and the professionalism of all the staff is outstanding. Thank you to all at Fernhil House Hotel for helping us to make amazing memories on our Wedding Day. Kevin & Nicola
