Traveling solo in the off season, the friendly staff made me feel very welcome. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely kitted out with tea kettles and other amenities. The Front Bar was quiet at times, then lively with music and locals. Right in the middle of downtown Clonakilty, easy walk to all the other pubs and restaurants in town.... More

Friendly warm, gracious staff who were really helpful with our genealogical hunt for O'Donovans in Bandon, the staff here would do anything to help you and this reflects the culture of Clonakilty, such a charming, clean and beautiful town.

Stayed for a day spending most of that time just walking around the hotel as my cycling gear was wet from the rain. Perfectly located hotel just walking distance from the busy streets full of pubs, shops and everything you might need. Hotel is a bit old but interior is set that way that you can't really refurbish without loosing... More

This hotel and Clonakily itself are treasures. If you want to be in the center of a lovely town with good shops and restaurants, it's own restaurant and bar, and music several nights per week, this is your best bet. The staff were friendly, the rooms large and very clean and the breakfast was delicious and varied. There's also free... More

Fantastic atmosphere / music in Teach Beag last night was destroyed by drunken customers! Barman needs to take control & allow those of us who want to hear good music enjoy our night! In general the Teach Beag has the BEST music so do pay it a visit & experience one of the best pubs in Ireland!

Quaint hotel in the centre of Clonakilty. live music in the bar is a great attraction and loved by some of our group. Beds very comfortable as was the bedroom. Nice lounge to meet on the first floor. Breakfast made to order. Lovely to see the local influence- music lessons were happening on an evening.
