Fernhill House Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Last weekend I was lucky enough to have been invited to a wedding being held in this beautiful hotel. From start to finish it was a very pleasant experience. From arrival reception in the marquee on their beautiful grounds, the fantastic dinner, and even the fish and chips for the night time break. The staff at all points were friendly and accommodating. Our bedroom was spotlessly clean nicely appointed. Little touches like the sprigs of dried lavendar on the face-clothes in the bathroom make this hotel a little jewel in West Cork's crown. Being a Corkonian living now in Galway and also working in the hospitality industry this experience made me very happy.

Fernhill House is a perfect example of how things should be done!! Excellent work.

Room Tip: We stayed in 208 and couldn't fault it.

What a fantastic 4 nights we had at the Fernhill house hotel! Great value, clean, modern, friendly and very helpful staff.

After a disaster with our 1st booking at another hotel we found Fernhill via a booking website n drove up to see if they had availability. Not only did they put us up for 4 nite's but they also matched the online deal!

About 15min walk from town Centre but perfect distance wen your full of food and beer!

Staff always gave us suggestions of places to visit,places to eat and pubs to drink in!!

Definitely 4* not 3* - great find in a fantastic location!

Hello, Michael here.

Thank you very much to you and your partner for taking the time to write such amazing reviews. It was great that we could make your break enjoyable especially seeing that you were celebrating a birthday. It is also a relief that you liked the birthday candle as not everyone likes to celebrate their birthday but I thought that you were up for the 'craic'.

Hope to see you in West Cork again.

Best regards

Michael

We stayed for four nights at Fernhill to celebrate my 40th Birthday last week and have nothing but praise for both the Hotel and its staff. Great rooms and en-suite, superb food, excellent Guinness (very reasonably priced for a hotel) and fantastic staff made our stay a most memorable one. Personal touches from the staff included the loan of brollies on more than one occasion, a lift into town one evening (thank you Michael), complimentary tea, coffee and home-made biscuits when checking in and most thoughtful of all - a candle on my Birthday breakfast. We can't recommend this hotel highly enough (and I've stayed in many the length and breadth of the country) and will definitely return - 5 Star. Clonakilty highlights include: walking on Inchydony beach, food at the Malthouse Granary Restaurant, and last but certainly not least - our new favourite pub in the whole world; DeBarra's.

I wish I were on holidays and could stay for longer:) Hotel is in a great condition, very clean, very comfortable. A lot of greenery outside, very relaxing. It is peaceful and quiet, which to me is a massive bonus. Staff are amazingly attentive without being intrusive. Burger on the bar menu is very tasty and comes with a little flower on top:))) Definitely a place to return to for a nice weekend away or an event.

We had our wedding reception in Fernhill in August 2013. From the moment we booked our date we didn't worry about the reception side of things. This hotel has a great reputation and its easy to know why. From day one Caroline was always efficient and friendly in dealing with any query that we had. Anything we needed or asked was provided without questions and Caroline not only made us feel at ease on the run up to the wedding but made it an enjoyable experience also. On the day itself we were blessed with fantastic weather which let our guests avail of the marquee and the fabulous grounds. Our guest are still talking about the cocktail reception and the quality and quantity of food that was provided down in the marquee. We were amazed we were arrived in the golf buggy to see our guests outside having a great time and soaking up the atmosphere. At the meal the staff and service could not have been better, the attention to detail was fantastic and everyone from staff to the O Neill family made us feel really special. The food again was fabulous everyone still comments on the attention shown by the professional staff. We had the Fish and Chip shop in the evening which was delicious and something very unique. People still asks us could we have it again! We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and give the highest of praise to Caroline, the O Neill family and all the staff. We were thrilled with how our day went and it really was the most perfect day in the perfect venue.

Just want to say a massive thank you to Fernhill House Hotel and its amazing team of Caroline Wedding Co-ordinator, Teresa,Michael, Michael Jr & Neil, chef & staff from Susan Hegarty & Gearoid O Leary for our wedding on Aug 23rd, From beginning to end you made us feel so welcome, i loved the homely feel to you're hotel and wow do ye know how to provide the greatest professional help and experience for weddings. Caroline was so helpful in build up to our day and nothing was too much trouble. All our guests raved about the food and how everyone was served all together, nothing was too much trouble for your staff like providing bread and butter for my dad for his chip sandwiches in evening. When you book a wedding you want people to have a memorable day and Fernhill certainly provided this to us and our guests. I loved the Marquee and gardens and this was a highlight for our guests, the drinks reception was in full flow and your hotel certainly provides value for money. Down to the little details of the golf buggy ride to Marquee & fish chip shop all went down a treat with our guests. The next day was great how organised you all were with all bits we had to bring home after dancing to early hours! We have our complimentary champagne glasses always and great memories of fantastic day. Fernhill House Hotel is certainly a gem in Clon!
