Enjoy a West Cork Wedding

Here at Fernhill we know that your wedding is a truly special day in your life. You will celebrate the fantastic news that you have found the love of your life and all of your dearest friends & family will be there to share in the joy with you. Your magical day deserves an exceptional venue and Fernhill is the perfect one for you.

Over generations we have created a unique marriage of a beautiful country house setting and amazing service that has been recognised as the best in Ireland. We will create a wonderful wedding and memories that you will treasure as you live happily married together.

Fernhill is a Georgian Manor house that has been cared for by the O’Neill family for four generations in Clonakilty. It is a gorgeous country house set amongst acres of picturesque gardens and has stunning views of the beautiful West Cork countryside.

Love and weddings have been at the heart of Fernhill for generations. In ancient Ireland every plant had sacred energies & meanings. The fern, or raithneach, symbolised marriage & the secret bond of love. The gentle unfurling of the fern represented the slow blooming of love in a committed relationship.

As we are a family run hotel we are able to provide exceptional service that you will not find in any other venue. Michael Snr has been a Chef for 50 years, Teresa has overseen weddings for 40 years and three sons run the bar and waiting staff. They will ensure that everything will be perfect and your guests will rave about the food for years to come.

Thank you again for enquiring at Fernhill. We would be honoured to host your wedding. We hope you enjoy looking at our beautiful photos & videos on our website but would love to give you a personal tour of Fernhill to see what your day will be like so please do let us know when you are free.
