At the heart of Fernhill are our gardens. They provide everything from a beautiful escape for our guests, flowers for our tables and food for our kitchen. We hope you enjoy exploring them.

Fernhill House was Clonakilty’s most luxurious Georgian mansion and the O’Neill family are restoring this opulence through our gardens. Our extensive gardens have many beautiful features which can be seen on the map below. (map attached)

West Cork Garden Trail

We are proud members of the West Cork Garden Trail. The trail has been in existence for 24 years and comprises of 22 beautiful gardens throughout West Cork. Although known for its wild, rugged beauty, West Cork is also blessed with a wide range of beautiful gardens that make the most of the mild climate, kept temperate by the Atlantic Gulf Stream that runs up the west coast of Ireland. The trail captures the best of this special landscape. Each garden is unique in its own wonderful way from country houses, sculpture gardens, small gardens with exotic species and more. You also have the opportunity to meet the lovely gardeners that tend these horticulture marvels. Enjoy.
