Fernhill House Hotel & Gardens

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Charm, character and community are the triptych of values that make Michael O’Neill’s hotel a rather special place. Located at the edge of the town of Clonakilty, and set amidst lush and lavishly tended gardens, Fernhill is the sort of hotel that gives family-run, local community hotels a good name. Mr O’Neill and his family run everything with quiet, modest assurance, and when you hear that the house organised a soup kitchen to feed those who were starving during the great famine, then you understand just how deep the roots of this proud family tradition of caring for people actually are.
But what we also like about Fernhill is the fact that Mr O’Neill and his team are real strivers, always determined to get better, to improve, to be their best. They are always gong the extra mile to offer guests the best possible experience, whether you are here for a wedding, for a leisure and pleasure break, or as part of a West Cork tour. Charm, character, and a massive part of the West Cork community: that’s Fernhill House Hotel.
