Dunmore House Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 23, 2014

I stayed at Dunmore House for a friend's wedding in June 2014. From the initial booking right through to getting something I forgot posted to me, the customer service from this fabulous family-run hotel was amazing. The staff at all levels look like they like their jobs and are working 110% all of the time to make everything sparkle and shine and give you a great experience. For wedding food I was really impressed and the views from my room were spectacular. Given that so many Celtic Tiger hotels are now grubby and tired looking, it's obvious that Dunmore House is continuously invested in and cared for. Highly recommended. Thanks so much!

We discovered this hotel a few years ago whilst attending a wedding. We have been back a couple of times, most recently last week.
This hotel is a "gem" for comfort. cleanliness, friendliness and all one needs for a few days away.
All staff are so helpful and know what they're doing, the place is spotless throughout and food, especially breakfast is worth the visit alone.
Rooms excellent and we shall return.

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the sea was excellent!

I booked short notice and was very happy with my choice when arriving at the hotel. The people are very freindly and welcoming. The room rather large, nicely decorated and very clean. The view was second to none! The beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was fantastic. We will be back

Just back from a one night stay in Dunmore House Hotel and I am just sorry we could not stay longer. It is a fabulous setting and our room had a fabulous view across the atlantic ocean. It was so relaxing, I could just have stared out to sea for ever. The decor was lovely in shades of white and grey very cool and pleasant and it was very spacious and contained everything you might need. The staff were superb and genuinely friendly and interested in every guest. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order and had a nice selection of fruits, cereals and breads as well. We played a round of golf after breakfast and it is a very nice testing course with marvelous views and was in great condition. Looking forward to our next visit already.

Stayed here on a Thursday night for one night and also ate in the restaurant. I absolutely love this place! Staff are amazing and you could spend the entire day chatting with them like old friends.

Our room was fantastic. Apparently each room has different decor so I would have loved to have seen them all. Beautiful sea view from the room was a real treat!

Went whole hog and had three courses in this restaurant (sea view also!). We both had the soup for starters with fresh, homemade bread. For mains, I had the the Cod au gratin (yum!) and my partner had the steak (had to stop him from licking the plate). For dessert I had the chocolate fudge cake and my partner had the apple and rhubarb crumble. Every dish had a slight twist which was well received! We nearly had to rolled out of the place but a leisurely stroll down by the beach did the trick!


Would recommend this place 100% - top marks for everything!

This hotel was a nice relaxed family run hotel. They are located just across the bay from inchydoney beach & had fantastic views, a really wonderful location. The staff were really nice & helpful.

The hotel itself is nicely decorated & the rooms with clean, with a fabulous view. There wasn’t much happening in the hotel; we drove into Clonakilty for music & nightlife.

The breakfast was nice for a small hotel. I’d recommend this to a couple looking for a quiet break to an older couple to relax.
