Hotel needs a good makeover-carpets need cleaning and surfaces need dusting. Staff helpful and courteous but standards not what one expects in 2014. Food good and varied. Staff forgot to give me my dinner one night. We will not return to the Emmet Hotel

Room Tip: ask to see the room before you decide to stay

Myself and my family went there for food several times in August while we were holidaying.

WOW, amazing food, lunches were fabulous, there are always a few specials on every day. The Kids got amazing food, and they even catered for dietarty restrictions, which were clearly identified on the menu.
There is an enclosed outside play area for the children, so you can eat al fresco and enjoy your food while watching your kids play. This is the first time i was actually able to finish a starter and a main in years.
Dinner was exceptional, with lots of local produce on the menu.

Service is great, and staff are very helpful, especially if you have any dietary needs or queries on the menu.

A must try for everyone, you will not be dissapointed.

Over the years I have been a regular visitor to the Emmet Hotel. It is in a perfect location bang in the middle of Clonakilty so you can soak up the sights of the town (no car required / free on-street parking) but you are still only a few miles from some of west Corks most beautiful beaches. I cannot believe that it is almost 5 years since our wedding here!! Since then I have been here many times with my husband and kids. They have great food, a brilliant dining area where you can be both inside or outside but the best it - with a fully enclosed play area – ingenious! I was there for the Random Acts of Kindness festival during the summer in the Emmet Square gardens, literally outside the door – great weekend. So much has improved décor wise but the one thing that stay the same is the level of friendly and courteous service. I look forward to many more anniversaries here…..

Staying in The Emmet Hotel was very a very enjoyable and pleasant experience. I was in Clonakilty for a hen party and, as organiser, I chose to stay here. The staff were lovely to deal with and so accommodating. There were a lot of cancelations last minute and the hotel didn't charge these people at all and were happy to oblige in swapping people to different rooms. They allowed us bring our own champagne down to the bar. We got lunch there which was lovely - lots of choice on the menu. Location is excellent - so central. The room was spacious - I would have loved a full-length mirror though!! Overall, a great experience and I would recommend this hotel to others.
