Last week I attended the wedding of a lifetime at the Dunmore House in Clonakilty! The stunning views of the ocean from where the wedding was held was like a dream. The twinkly lights, chiffon curtains, and covered chairs made for a very elegant atmosphere. The excellent staff, the delicious meal of filet mignon, with ever ending side dishes, and delicious desserts, just made for a lovely experience! Everyone noted how wonderful the staff was and how they were so attentive! Hope to visit this outstanding hotel again soon!

We stayed for a few days in Dunmore House. The weather was fantastic while we were there and, when the sun shines, the views from the bedrooms,the dining room and the terrace are stunning. The hotel is in a rural area very close to the sea, with a small beach close by. This is a family run establishment and while we were there we were made to feel that we were a part of that family. Nothing we required was too much trouble. The food was excellent and all services were delivered with a warm greeting and a friendly smile. It is a very special place.

This hotel is perfectly located and we had a lovely big room with such an amazing view; the sunrises and sunsets were spectacular.
I cannot fault this hotel, everything is spotlessly clean, and the food is just fabulous, fresh, local and homemade using locally sourced produce.
It is a family run hotel and it shows in the attention to detail, lovely staff and wonderful hospitality.
We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed amazing walks on beautiful beaches and visits to delightful little towns with loads of independent shops, great coffee shops.
This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in, we will definitely go back to stay.
