Fernhill House Hotel was the perfect wedding venue - Ann the wedding coordinator was a pleasure to deal with throughout the entire planning process and never minded answering our many questions. Additionally, the level of service provided by the venue was exceptional which is reflective of the family-run nature of the Hotel and how well the O'Neill family look after all their guests. Our day flowed seamlessly and everything went off without a hitch which is a credit to the amazing staff at Fernhill. We couldn't recommend them more!

Ann and the team in Fernhill are top class; from the time we first viewed the hotel we knew it was the venue we wanted for our wedding. Ann was superb from the outset, no question was left unanswered no matter how trivial and she was always so quick to respond. No ask was too big or too small. She put us at ease from the beginning and we just knew the coordination of our wedding was in the safest and most expert of hands. She knew just when to advise us if we were unsure or undecided on anything and she definitely gave us great guidance when it came to menu selection, timings etc. Her wealth of wedding experience shone through and it was our experience with Ann at our first viewing that was a key factor in our decision to select Fernhill. We just knew we would be looked after. The venue itself is amazing. We got married close to Christmas and the hotel was so tastefully decorated it really added to the atmosphere. The function room is beautifully decorated with the year round fairy lights adding a magical cosy feel to the dinner setting. The service that we received was excellent. Two weeks on from our wedding our guests are still telling us how brilliant the service was throughout the day , all asks were catered to and everyone is still talking about how good the food was. We knew Fernhill did excellent food from our own previous experience with the hotel but to have a large number of our wedding guests go out of their way to make sure they told us ‘it was the best meal they had at a wedding in a long time’ really reminded us just how good Fernhill are when it comes to food. The quality of their food is certainly not impacted by crowds as we had 200 sit down to our meal. Even beyond the food and service the whole setting is fantastic with many of our guests enjoying the wonderful gardens and grounds of the hotel the following morning. Having got married in Fernhill, our only additional ask would be to do it all again! We will be attending a wedding in Fernhill again next year and we already can’t wait to visit again so we have a chance to have the guest experience that all of our guests all raved about.

Fernhill is an all around amazing venue from the facilities to the staff, everything was 5 star. Ann is a fantastic wedding co ordinator, as a bride planning our wedding in a country we don't live it, having Ann on hand is something money can't buy, she was quick with her responses and helped with any questions or concerns we had. The whole planning process to the big day and after was a pleasure and we can't wait to visit one day when we are back

Wedding 22nd Oct 2022
My wife Katie and I originally booked our wedding in 2019 for 2021 and like many other couples we had to make the decision to reschedule it due to COVID so our day ended up happening in October 2022 instead. At every stage of the process Fernhill provided a level of service that could only be described as superb. Ann was our wedding coordinator and absolutely no question or request was too big or too small. We didn't feel any stress whatsoever at any stage and we always felt that we were being well looked after. Many many of our guests are still telling us weeks later that it was the best wedding weekend they have ever been to and a huge amount of the credit for that goes to the team at Fernhill particularly Ann, Laura and Neil. The food was incredible and always readily available - nobody will ever go hungry at Fernhill! Our guests were treated extremely well and everyone was very happy with their accommodation. The weather turned nasty right as we arrived at the venue but the Fernhill team made absolutely sure that not a drop of rain was spilled on our guests or on ourselves. We couldn't possibly recommend Fernhill any higher as a wedding venue - if anything we wish that we could do it all again!

My husband and I had our wedding reception in Fernhill and Ann and the O' Neill family ensured we had the most amazing day. From the minute we met Ann and the O' Neill family to discuss our plans for our wedding day, we knew we were in good hands. Their professionalism, warmth and pride they take in weddings was very clear throughout our planning and on the day of the weddding. The food at Fernhill holds its own reputation. The hard work of each and every staff on the day of our wedding was very evident and all so welcoming. The hotel and grounds itself are always picturesque and always so clean. We cannot speak highly enough of Fernhill as wedding venue and we are very grateful to all of the staff that made our day so special.

What can I say about Ann and her team in Fernhill!!! Both me and my husband had the day of your dreams thanks to them. From start to finish it was flawless and we didn’t have to think of anything, they did it all!! Ann is both outstanding at her job and an outstanding person. So warm and inviting yet so professional. Any detail we had a worry about was no hassle at all and anything we wanted done was done as if they already thought of it. I really believe if our wedding was anywhere else other then fernhill it wouldn’t have been the same. If only we could do it all over again. Between the drinks reception in the stunning gardens to the 10/10 dinner in hands down the most stunning dining reception which looked like it was out of a movie. I recommend both Ann and her team to absolutely everyone as I hope someone has even a fraction of the joy we had on our day!! X

We couldn’t speak more highly of Fernhill as a venue and Ann as a Wedding co-ordinator. Living aboard we had concerns about planning a Wedding at home in Ireland. However, from the first video call with Ann at Fernhill, our concerns were eased and excitement started to grow. The team at Fernhill were so accommodating to every request we proposed which in turn gave us great comfort in the week leading up to the wedding knowing that Ann and her team had everything under control. If we were to do it all over again we wouldn’t change a thing!

From the moment we got engaged we knew Fernhill was the place we would be married, and as soon as we viewed it in July 2020 we just fell in love. When we met with Ann, she was incredibly friendly, approachable, helpful and professional, everything a Wedding Coordinator should be, and more. I felt like no question was too silly to ask, and she was always on hand to answer any calls or emails. We got married here July 10th 2022, and throughout the rollercoaster of the pandemic, Ann always kept in touch, and we had an absolutely amazing day. From the morning of the wedding and the delicious breakfast they arranged, to the perfectly timed (and hidden!) golf cart trip to the ceremony space, to the incredible drinks reception and then to the fabulous dinner and dancing - it all ran like clockwork, and absolutely none of our wishes were omitted (Ann really did get my vision for the decorations!). Fernhill is truly a one of a kind venue and service, they do weddings, and they do them well! Thanks to all the team at Fernhill for what feels like a dream, especially Ann and Neil and the O'Neil family!

We had 16 children and had asked for garden games, connect 4/jega to be set up in the garden. Mike gave some of the kids extra spins in the golf cart which they loved The food was amazing and plenty of everything.

We heard from a lot of our guests that it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! The value for money was excellent and Ann was so flexible when we kept having to change our numbers and table plan due to our guests getting covid before the big day! There was also never any pressure from the hotel and, at least from our side, it felt so relaxed and easy-going. It was lovely to have a chat with the owners on the day too, and you could see there is real pride of their venue and gorgeous personal touches from the O'Neill family as well! Just wish we could do it all over again!!

We looked at venues all over the country as we were living in Dublin, my husband is from Athlone and I'm from Cork. Hands down no where came close to level of professionalism and welcome given by Fernhill. It was clear they were just as passionate about us enjoying the day as we were. Nothing was ever an issue, every venue without question needs an Ann Cullinane for a coordinator. The others we met with did not have her warmth and enthusiasm, never were we made feel this was just another wedding. All our guests raved about the food and the O'Neil family give it that incomparable West Cork welcome. I would recommend Fernhill to anyone

We had our wedding reception in Fernhill House Hotel and Gardens in November 2021 and we highly recommend them! Ann Cullinane, their wedding coordinator was so helpful when planning the wedding and on the day of the wedding. The staff at Fernhill were always professional, kind and caring. Service on the day of our wedding was incredible. Ferhill House Hotel has won many awards, and they are thoroughly deserved! They have beautiful gardens and we lovely the twinkly fairy lights in the ballroom. It was also great value for money for the high standards of food and service we received. Fernhill House Hotel is also renowned for their high-quality food offerings. They use local products and seasonal produce as much as possible. From canapés, to dinners, to breakfast the next morning, we were served delicious food. We had a number of guests with special dietary requirements (coeliac and vegan, for example) and their food was expertly prepared and highly praised! We had a ball on our wedding day, with thanks to Fernhill House Hotel’s staff and expertise. Go raibh míle maith agaibh! Danny & Aisling O’Keeffe

Fernhill are exceptional, from walking in the door for the first meeting and viewing, to long after the wedding day. Their reputation; is quite deservedly legendary; but to to actually experience their kindness, attention to detail and sheer professionalism is astounding. What a pleasure from our first meeting with Ann, who answered questions we didn't even know we had, to Mike senior looking after us the following day with treats from the kitchen at 2am to the beautiful setting and gardens and delicious food. To Ann and all of the O'Neills thank you so much, we thoroughly look forward to spending many more special family occasions and casual visits with you!

We were lucky enough to have our wedding in Fernhill in September 2021. After attending many weddings here before and having always been impressed we always knew this was where we wanted to get married. We didn't need to view anywhere else. From the first moment we met the wedding Co ordinator Ann we felt so at ease, it was clear that she loved her job & was full of helpful information and advice . No ask was too big or small. We knew that our wedding Co ordination was in the safest of hands. Our first wedding date was unfortunately right in the middle of covid and things were very uncertain but Ann was always so reassuring and more than helpful and secured us a 2nd date in case it was needed. Any time we sent an email no matter what time she was always quick to respond and took the stress away. We had a humanist ceremony on site and Fernhill had so many different options for this. Luckily the sun came out for us later that morning and we were able to have our ceremony in the gorgeous garden. Our guests still talk about the amazing venue. The food and service was A1 as per . The standard is always incredible be it 20 or 200 people. Fernhill is such a welcoming homely hotel. We really can't even put into words how happy we were with everything. We will be forever thankful to Ann, Neil and the O Neill family & team for everything they did to make our day so special. We would have no hesitation in recommending Fernhill as a wedding venue.

Every member of staff were amazing, not only on the night but any time we called to the venue on the lead up. Ann the wedding coordinator couldn’t do enough for us and guided us perfectly in the planning and always answered our questions promptly, no matter how small a question! The O’Neils were brilliant on the lead up and the day too from having different plans in place due to the weather to helping to sort out the technical side of the music to the little details Theresa puts into the venue. If you are looking for attentive, friendly and helpful staff in beautiful romantic surroundings then look no further!

Anne is wonderful at her job and nothing was ever too much trouble. Thank you so much for all that you did in our organising. All of the O’Neill family have a very friendly manner which shows through in their team as everything on the day ran so well. Dinner was amazing with compliments on the food from all guests.

We had our wedding at Fernhill House in December 2020 and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice of venue. From the moment we met the Wedding Coordinator Ann, everything went so smoothly, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Ann made the planning so simple and enjoyable; she was always available to answer any queries we had. We had the added pressure of Covid during our Wedding but Ann and all the team at Fernhill made sure we were constantly kept in the loop and despite the restrictions we still had the best day. From the food to the Christmas decorations, everything in relation to Fernhill was perfect on our day. We couldn’t recommend Fernhill enough for a wedding and having Ann as the Wedding Coordinator is an added bonus.

From the very first time we set foot inside Fernhill we were treated amazingly and were always happy with the service. Ann, Michael and Neil were always professional, helpful and friendly. They always replied to our questions and gave us advice throughout our wedding planning experience. The day itself was perfect from start to finish. The set up, the food and just the general running of the day was exceptional and seamless. The food especially was to die for and our guests have been raving about it ever since. The hotel is so cosy and beautiful and having exclusivity made the day even more personal for us. They also have amazing gardens that set the scene for breathtaking photos that meant we didn’t need to leave our location in the day. We honestly couldn’t be happier with our choice in wedding venue and will be recommending Fernhill for years to come.

Nothing was ever too much to ask the team at Fernhill, and they did everything possible to ensure that our day went exactly the way we wanted it too. The food was amazing, as was the service and attention to detail. Everything about the day was so relaxed, exactly as we had wished for, and if we could do it all over again we would!

From the first meeting with Neil right through to the day itself, all of the team at the Fernhill House Hotel in Clonakilty played such a big part in making our wedding day such a fantastic, relaxed day. From the setting itself, to the fantastic food, to the great service, we are so glad we chose to have our wedding reception there.

This hotel absolutely know how to put on a wedding! We got married the weekend of storm Ophelia so needless to say it was a washout! We had our ceremony in the marquee and had planned on utilising outside for our drinks reception but because of the weather we had to keep everyone indoors. The way the staff dealt with the situation was nothing short of amazing. They managed to transform the room from a ceremony set up to a drinks set up in a matter of minutes! Their friendliness and flexibility was the reason we chose this venue. Let’s just say we had a couple of alternative ideas! But they were open to anything we suggested and the service, set up and easy manner made for such an incredible day regardless of the weather!! Would highly recommend the Fernhill

From the moment we viewed Fernhill as a potential wedding venue right up until our big day the staff of Fernhill and the wedding coordinator were so professional, helpful and friendly. They couldn't do enough for us, allowing us to have the perfect day. The meal, reception food, service, marquee and beautiful gardens were things guests complimented us on. The party went on until all hours and the owners even dropped some of the guests back to their B&B, so kind of them. The hotel presented my husband and I with surprise engraved bride and groom crystal glasses which we were a lovely keepsake.

Fernhill were absolutely amazing during the whole process from start to finish when we were planning our wedding. Caroline was so flexible and accommodated all of our requests. We also planned our wedding from Australia and she was very flexible with times for us to skype to discuss the wedding etc. On the day we didn’t have to lift a finger, they were so organised and we had discussed the set up of the whole venue prior. We had our ceremony in the gardens and it was absolutely stunning and picturesque. We had drinks reception in the marquee which was stunning and they accommodated us having our speeches down there too. The reception was held in their function hall and was set up to perfection. The food was absolutely amazing, we decided to pay extra to have the steak option and we were not disappointed, everyone was commenting on how amazing the food was. Their service was fantastic and unfaultable. We were treated as though we were the only ones in the world getting married (and not that they do this every weekend). I could not rate Fernhill high enough, they are amazing!

From our first visit to Fernhill we knew that we could be confident in our decision to book this as our wedding venue. The venue itself is beautiful with plenty of comfort and photo opportunities. The management and staff were always focused on either planning or hosting our day - nothing was a problem. We were offered a planning questionnaire so that no details were overlooked (which was valuable). We had plenty of opportunity for planning meetings and we had a taster meal. On the day itself we were looked after without fault. Everything we had planned just unfolded seamlessly before us as we went from drinks reception to dinner, to speeches, to dancing, to resident's bar. People say getting married is stressful, but thankfully we can say that we had no stress on the day. We just handed it all over to the Fernhill and enjoyed it. So many of our guests have spoken about how they enjoyed the day, and everybody was raving about the quality of the food and the first class service. We would have no problem recommending the Fernhill House Hotel as a premium wedding venue, where people can be confident about their special day.

We highly recommend fernhill house as a wedding venue especially as it was for us for a civil ceremony....the option was there to hold ceremony in the garden or in the marquee ..We chose the marquee which was totally prepared for the day by the hotels owners and the hotels own wedding planner caroline. The venue took our breath away when we saw it on the day from the red carpet lined by candles to the beautiful altar decorated with candles and flowers all provided by the hotel ..The marquee was then turned around in the blink of an eye to the venue for our drinks reception. Our guests enjoyed cocktails and hot canapés there while we had our photographs done in the beautiful designed garden. Dinner was then served "westcork" style in the main hotel and by that I mean abundant servings of beautiful fresh local products...what then followed was a night of danceing late into the night only broken by the arrival of "fish &chips"around 11 pm to keep us going..i cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. It is easy to see that it is a family run hotel as you ar treated just like family the whole way through with also the use of the hotel own wedding planner at the end if the phone should you need her. I want to take this opportunity to thank the staff for making our special day so effortless..best wishes violet &.denis x

We have had so many comments on the beautiful venue from our guests and one or two are now even considering booking it themselves! Caroline and Neil were incredibly helpful and positive from the moment we met them and were extremely flexible. The staff on the day set out all our little decorations in the most professional way, and Michael the owner ferried guests around in his golf cart! The food was of a very high standard - not your typical 'wedding food' at all! We stayed up playing music and having fun in the residents bar until the early hours of the morning and the bar staff were very patient with us.

The staff and owners couldn't be nicer. The food and atmosphere is superb and because you have the venue booked for you and your guests the day is all your own and you forget completely that you are in cork, let alone Ireland! It's like a mini holiday. We had a humanist ceremony and everything was very personal and the room was decorated beautifully. I highly recommend fernhill house. I wish them all the best for what I know will be a fantastic future. Amy & Eddie

We got married here in July 2016 and I cannot speak highly enough of this venue. The welcome we received on our first viewing of the venue from Caroline won us over and the pre-wedding communication and organisation was A+ without any stress. The staff could not have been more accommodating and professional and went over and above their call of duty in so many ways; things you just would not get in another hotel i.e. using their own cars to transports guests from the hotel to the marquee because of the rain, the owner giving us a few bars in the residents lounge at 4am! Their friendliness, alertness and efficiency made our day run seamlessly well. Next, the food! Wow! The presentation, the choice, the quality and the abundance meant each and every guest was catered for and staff accommodated many dietary requirements with no fuss. Lastly the venue was pristine. There was not a leaf out of place in the gardens, the flowers and colours are the perfect setting for photos and the marquee and dining room were stunning. Could go on with positives forever but to sum up I would not have changed a single thing about the day. Fantastic from start to finish! Thanks to the O'Neills and their crew at Fernhill for a day we will never forget!

We had a magical wedding at Fernhill. The food had the guest in raptures and the West Cork air was a treat for all the foreign guests. A real homely feel compared to the city venues and much better value for your euros.

A truly fantastic day. The hotel and gardens were looking immaculate as always. The family run etiquette shone through at all times in the build-up to the big day and made us both feel confident we were in good hands. The marquee for the pre-drinks reception on the beautiful gardens is the icing on the cake and went down extremely well with the guests.The ball room was stunning and the bridal suite and guest rooms were extremely comfortable. We also availed of the marquee for the day after the wedding for a barbecue with many of our family, friends and their children and this was a fitting end to a great weekend in Fernhill House. The service throughout both days was astounding and anything we had requested in the lead up or on the big day itself was not only met but exceeded expectations. We would recommend this hotel to any couple for their special day and can say with utmost confidence they will not be disappointed. Thanks to everyone at Fernhill for an amazing weekend.

Fernhill is an excellent wedding location. The marquee reception set in the beautiful gardens adds something magical to the day. The well-maintained gardens are another alluring feature that provide a stunning background for photos. As many brides know...the meal is key to a great day and Fernhill's menu options along with the quality of food served is second to none. Fernhill offer many extra touches to add to the day-personalised menus, fish&chip shop and coloured lighting to match your theme. For an exceptional service and a unique experience, look no further than Fernhill.

For us,we couldn't have asked for a better host and venue for our wedding! They made our day so relaxing and they were so helpful throughout the lead up to the wedding. Every guest complimented the food,service and beautiful gardens & marquee. The day went so smoothly and this coud not have been possible without the O Neill family and their years of expertise. We highly recommend this as the top wedding venue in the West Cork area.

The staff at Fernhill were amazing leading up to and the day of our wedding. They were Friendly, hard working and catered-for all our guests needs. Everyone spoke to me about how much food and drink they got on the day and there was no shortage of it which is always a good sign of a wedding. The drinks reception was beautiful, and all my guests enjoyed it especially the children as they could run around the gardens. Fernhill were easy to work with and found the whole experience a pleasure. On the lead up to the day, we would get emails saying this is what we need to do next ect and it made organising the wedding easier. Also they responded quickly to any queries we had.

Fernhill was a fantastic venue. I am the fourth girl in my family to have chosen it for our wedding reception. The staff are so accommodating and helpful and caroline (the wedding coordinator) is a dream. A number of our guests commented that the meal was the best meal they have ever eaten at a wedding. The gardens are just beautiful for photographs, day or night. Even though it was raining on the day of our wedding, we were still able to take photos in the gardens and neil and Mike very helpfully drove us down in the golf buggy. The bridal suite is also stunning. The service is really second to none. We honestly couldn't recommend Fernhill as a venue highly enough. You don't have to worry about anything if you are going there!

I cannot praise Fernhill House Hotel and Gardens highly enough. From the moment we first viewed the venue we met with friendliness and professionalism. The wedding coordinator, Caroline is an absolute gem and no query or concern was too small to be dealt with. All our planning and most importantly, the wedding day, moved along seamlessly thanks to the wonderful staff. Every member of the Fernhill team were absolutely outstanding. All our guests were complimenting us on the food, the service and the venue as a whole. They really and truly gave us the most perfect day.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Caroline and the O’Neill family for an absolutely amazing wedding day.After a long search for the perfect venue we stumbled across the Fernhill house hotel while living abroad in New Zealand. We requested a brochure online, not really expecting a response being so far away, however within a week we received one in the post with all the information we needed. We knew straight away that this was where we wanted to have our reception. From the beautiful gardens with the marquee to the fabulously renovated hotel it had everything we wished for. Shortly after arriving home we went to visit the hotel for Sunday lunch. The food was so amazing and the staff were so friendly there really was no doubt for us that this was the perfect hotel. We booked our date as soon as we could. In the run up to the big day Caroline and Theresa were so helpful and really made us feel at ease with all the preparations. From ideas on decorations to the menu nothing was too much trouble. On the day itself we had such an amazing time, the whole day ran so smoothly, we didn’t need to worry about anything. Caroline, Theresa, Michael, Michael jnr and Neill and all the staff looked after us so well you would think we were the only wedding they were hosting all year.We really cannot thank everyone at the Fernhill enough for making our special day so amazing. Everyone keeps talking about the food complementing it and also the service, every table was given such attention and well looked after by all the staff.Having the use of the marquee and gardens for the reception drinks really breaks up the day for the guests and there are plenty of places to go if you want to get away from the reception room while still not being far from all the action. It really is the perfect wedding venue and we only hope that someday we can return for someone else’s wedding to enjoy the whole experience again.We really cannot recommend this hotel enough, it is a three star hotel with five star service, food and accommodation. We look forward to returning some day even just for Sunday lunch.Thank you everyone at the Fernhill House Hotel. You really made our day.

On behalf of ourselves and our guests, we'd like to extend our sincere thanks to the O'Neill family and Caroline as well as all the staff of Fernhill for making our special day so enjoyable and memorable. The marquee turned out to a wonderful location for guests to 'mix and mingle' and to admire the beautiful gardens. The food was delicious and bountiful. All of the tables were served simultaneously in an efficent and curteous manner by the team. The quality of the meal and service is something we are still hearing about from guests. The fish and chips went down a treat as well with both night guests and those who had previously felt full but are used to visiting a chipper after a long day's drinking. Everyone's needs (including those found wandering the corridors at 7am) were well looked after. It was a pleasure too to relax and ruminate over it all the following morning in the comfortable surrounds of the lounge. If we were to do it all over again we wouldn't even bother to check out another hotel.So thanks again and we hope to be the recipients of invites to many weddings in Fernhill in the future.

Our wedding was on 1st Oct 2010. We chose Fernhill as our reception venue and it contributed greatly to our wonderful day. We knew from it's great reputation that we were in safe hands. Caroline and Teresa were a great help during the planning stages and on the day itself. We were lucky enough to get to use the marquee for our drinks reception. All the guests were impressed with it as it really kept the crowd together and was something different not available at other hotels. Also the younger guests had loads of room to run around the gardens! Every course of the meal was delicious and the personalised menus, complete with photo, were a lovely touch. The guests are still raving about the food (both quality and quantity!) and they couldn't believe the efficiency of the table service. Military is the only word to describe it!! Many people have told us it was the best meal they ever had at a wedding. Everything to do with the hotel is professional but you also get the very important personal touch. We would like to extend a massive thank you to all the staff for making our day so special. There is not one second we would change.

We were married on 21 August 2010. Our wedding reception was held in Fernhill House Hotel, Clonakilty. We are currently on honeymoon but have taken time out to acknowledge the truly fantasic job that Teresa and Michael O'Neil did to make our special day so much more than special. Teresa has a keen eye for detail and no request was too much. She helped us enormously both in the preparations and on the day. The service that the O'Neil family and their staff provided was professional, personal and second to none. Our drinks reception was held in the spacious marquee while our photos were taken in the adjoining gardens. This meant that we were alongside our guests at all times. The meal was absolutely magnificent with real West Cork helpings. We received so many compliments afterwards on our choice of venue and meal. The evening food was as top quality as the main meal with a few surprises thrown in. If you want a reception with a difference - choose this hotel. We would recommend this hotel to anyone that is looking for a wedding venue that will make their special day 'memorable' for all the right reasons. This hotel is definitely one of the top wedding venues in Ireland. A sincere thank you to the O'Neil family.

"We were married on the 20th August 2010. We would like to thank the staff at Fernihll for making our wedding day so special. Teresa and Michael O'Neill and Caroline, fernhill's wedding planner, were so helpful and friendly to us both on the planning of our wedding day and the wedding day itself. No matter what we asked - nothing was too much. We had fabulous weather on the day of our wedding and we availed of the marquee and the beautiful surrounding gardens. Our guests found the marquee amazing as it helped keep everyone together and people are still talking about how lovely the gardens are. We took our wedding photos in the landscaped gardens and they are truly magnificent. The meal we received was truly delicious. The service from the staff was outstanding and guests could not compliment the meal enough for its delicious flavour and taste. For anyone that is looking for a West Cork venue for their wedding, we would strongly recommend Fernhill House Hotel for both quality of service and its uniqueness. Thank you to the O' Neill family for making our day so special."

There aren't enough words to express how amazing, friendly, thoughtful, efficient, professional and generally superb the O'Neil family and all the staff at Fernhill House hotel were on our wedding weekend and for all the months running up to it. We live in the UK and depended heavily on Theresa and Neil to organise our day. They fullfilled all our requests without question. We and our guests were overwhelmed by the amazing food and service. I personally did not have to worry about a single detail on the day. We had a blessing in the marquee in the beautiful gardens which was so romantic and a BBQ and sing-song there the following evening when the food was again superb. Aside from the fantastic food, service and beautiful venue the family atmosphere added to the intimacy and perfection of our day. Thank you so much.

After a long day of visiting hotels, searching for that special wedding venue we arrived at Fernhill House. We were greeted by Teresa the proprietor, with a welcoming smile and served tea and home-made scones. That was it, our minds were made up. !!!!It is those little touches that create the unique family-like warm atmosphere of Fernhill. Teresa seems to present an almost maternal interest in you and your wedding day, and Caroline the wedding co-ordinator is as helpful and warm as that extra bridesmaid! But it is not just the fabulous staff that helped make our day so special. One of my favourite memories of the big day was the drinks reception held in the marquee-another unique feature of the hotel. It is situated in the middle of the beautifully landscaped gardens. Guests mingled and enjoyed a relaxed drinks reception in the beautiful sunshine, (We were blessed!!!!). Meanwhile our photographer was able to get some great snaps in the gardens. We had heard of the great reputation Fernhill has for food and I am glad to say we were not disappointed!!!Guests from the wedding are still talking about the meal that was served up on the day, many saying it was the best meal they ever received at a wedding. There was a great choice when choosing the menu, guests were given plenty, and service and presentation was second to none!!!! I can’t praise Fernhill, Teresa, Caroline and all the staff enough for making our wedding day so very special and memorable. Nothing was too much trouble and they really took the pressure off with all the preparations. The morning after our wedding, I was almost surprised at the buzz around the hotel as they were all busily preparing for that days wedding. The care and attention we were given had us almost convinced that we were the only couple to have ever gotten married in Fernhill!!! And at the end of the day, isn’t that the way that every bride and groom wants to be made feel!! Thank you Fernhill!
