About The Hotel
Clonakilty in West Cork is definitely worth exploring. With its colourfully painted houses and Georgian Squares, it is lovely little town to stroll through, bursting with blooming flower baskets in the spring and summer. It was the hometown of the “Big Fella” Michael Collins, who grew up in the picturesque Georgian neighbourhood of Emmet Square. Those of you with a gra for Irish history can visit The National Michael Collins Memorial Statue, which was unveiled by actor Liam Neeson in 2002. Rumour has it that Eamon De Valera himself spoke to an audience from the second floor window of No. 4 Emmet Square. The Model village, nostalgically representing the 1940s, is an ideal place to take the children for an afternoon’s entertainment. You can also climb on board the “Tschu Tschu” Road Train which runs from the Model Village to the town centre daily during the summer and at weekends during the winter.
Just 4 kms outside Clon – as it is affectionately known – is Dunmore House - a family run gem situated in the heart of the West Cork countryside. This is a friendly place where you will quickly settle in and relax as you only can in West Cork. It boasts a beautiful Atlantic sea view from almost every bedroom and also offers a 9 Hole golf course on site with green fees free for guests. Not only that, but Dunmore has a private shoreline which makes it an ideal place for the guest who enjoys fishing and watersports. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a John Wayne, there are Horse riding facilities offered close to the hotel and the surrounding area provides an excellent backdrop for walking and trekking. We found the staff were more than happy to provide a packed lunch, upon request, for you for your day’s adventure or sightseeing activities.
The homey, traditional, old world bar provides a cosy nook to sit and relax beside the stone fireplace and revel in the laid back atmosphere. The restaurant, which overlooks the sea and greets its guests with an open and airy appeal, specialises in the best of local Irish surf ’n turf. The bedrooms have been individually decorated and have en suite bathrooms, satellite television and direct line phones. Children are welcome and babysitting services are available.
A lovely place for an informal and relaxing holiday break.
