    Wedding reception venue

    Having had our wedding reception here in Fernhill House in June was definitely the best decision we made. From the very first meeting with Ann the coordinator we knew it was a special venue. We wanted a venue that was homely and family run and we got this in abundance in Fernhill. The location with such beautiful gardens are simply stunning, the friendliness of the staff, the amazing food and service is second to none. The day was such an amazing and relaxed atmosphere and that is down Ann, the O'Neill family and all their staff, we couldn't have asked for more. Nothing was too much from start to finish and this made our experience all the more enjoyable. Many of our guests complimented the food, friendliness of staff and service. Thank you again for making our wedding day so memorable, we are truly grateful. Looking forward to returning to Fernhill again soon.

    May Bank holiday wedding at Fernhill

    We had such a beautiful wedding at Fernhill. Neil and Anne were such an amazing support in the run up to the wedding. They were always so professional and at the other side of the phone when I needed help with suppliers...They really took the stress out of the occasion and organising.They both were so calm on the day beaming from ear to ear. The room was fabulously decorated and the food was unbelievable. We were so delighted to get lovely photos in the amazing gardens with spectacular views. It was brilliant not to have to go to another location for photos and we had so much fun taking our photos. I'd highly recommend this hotel if you want a wedding with beautiful food in a stunning location

    Our wedding day

    Myself and my now husband had our wedding reception in the stunning Fernhill House Hotel and Gardens on the 3rd of May this year.
    The location was simply stunning, food was delicious, staff couldn't have been more accommodating and a really relaxed atmosphere all day and night.
    We loved the fact that the hotel is family run which I think adds to the relaxed feel.
    A special thank you to Ann, wedding coordinator of Fernhill, there was nothing too much trouble. She guided the day with ease and a smile from ear to ear, always!
    Well done Fernhill and congratulations to the O'Neill family on a fabulous business!

    Wedding March 2019

    Right from the beginning Fernhill made planning our wedding much easier. They have a fantastic in house wedding coordinator Ann who is the point of contact for all things wedding related. They reserve the accommodation for your guests, talk you through the day so that there is no stress in the lead up. The gardens are amazing and well kept. We had our ceremony on the Marquee on site and got to enjoy a lot of time in the marquee and gardens. A lot of people enjoyed the trip up and down in the golf buggy:) also very useful for the less abled guests. The function room was set out beautifully and they have a lot of extras included. They made provisions for anything extra we wanted, allowing people access to the venue and coordinating it for us. Everyone commented on how fantastic and plentiful the food was. We cannot wait to eat there again. There was heaps of waiters and waitresses to serve the 100's of guests so everyone eats at the same time. The night was truly one of the most magical nights and we have Fernhill to thank for making it so. They really offer a stress free personal service and make you feel special on your big day. A big thank you to all there.

    An amazing wedding venue

    We had our wedding here over st. Patrick's weekend. We had the most amazing weekend. The staff were incredible from start to finish, super friendly. The food was amazing. And the gardens for the photos were beautiful. We absolutely loved the Fernhill as our venue for our wedding and would recommend the Fernhill 100% to every couple looking for wedding venues. The wedding coordinator, Ann, is also so fantastic, replying so fast to all of my emails from the very start of the planning process. So if you are looking for a wedding venue, I recommend that you call in, see the gardens and have a chat with Ann.

    Super Venue for a Super Day

    We had our wedding reception in Fernhill House Dec 2018. Had the most wonderful day, more than we could ever have hoped for. From our first call to Fernhill House about booking the venue, Ann & the team could not have done more for us & we didn't have a single thing to worry about. The food was amazing, the staff were superb and the venue was beautiful. Couldn't recommend Fernhill House highly enough. Thanks for making our day so special.

    We had our wedding day in Fernhill house on the 9th of November 2018. We had our first viewing of the hotel with Michael who was very helpful and answered any question we had. The whole day went so well and really we couldn’t have asked for a better day! We’ve had so many people commenting on how amazing the food was and the professionalism of the staff. It was really nice to arrive at Fernhill house and instantly feel like everything was under control. Ann Cullinane was our wedding co ordinator and was always just an email or phone call away to help with any issues we had. Niall and all his staff created a day that we will never forget.
    Thanks for everything

    October 2018 Wedding

    We had our wedding in Fernhill house hotel a few weeks ago and it was the most amazing day! We couldn't have been happier with how everything went. Ann , our wedding coordinator, along with all of the O Neill family were just fantastic, they were so professional and went above and beyond with any requests that we had! We were able to contact them about any questions we had with a quick reply and on the day itself everything ran so smoothly. The food was superb and served so quickly(even with over 300 guests!) Everybody was talking about how good it was, and how all of the staff were just brilliant, so professional and so friendly!

    Top Class Wedding Venue & Staff

    My brother got married in Fernhill House Hotel in late September 2018.
    The staff on the day were top class. I dealt with Neil O'Neill in the build up to the big day to put on a slide show type film and he was very accommodating and professional, a real gent.

    On the day itself the staff were so pleasant, from Hazel in check in to the young men and women serving the tables. Always smiling and nothing phased them.

    We had people who travelled from the States and Australia and they couldn't get over how good the food tasted when serving so many.

    I could go on and on and I'm sure my mother and other family members would want me to.

    It genuinely was the perfect setting, meal and atmosphere.

    Well done to all and top marks to everyone involved.

    Well done.

    Wedding venue

    My husband & I had our wedding reception at Fernhill house hotel in September 2018. Fernhill House Hotel & Gardens is an amazing wedding venue. The beautiful gardens, elegant marquee & quaint welcoming house / reception areas are perfect for an exclusive wedding. It is run to impeccable standards by the O'Neill family & all their staff. They were a pleasure to deal with from day 1 to the day after our wedding. We were thrilled with the coordination and services provided. Our guests were blown away by their service. Could not fault the hotel / management in the slightest! No hesitation in recommending Fernhill for a wedding / celebration venue

    Best Wedding Venue!!

    We had our wedding reception in Fernhill House Hotel in mid September 2018. When we were looking for a venue we went to Fernhill on a Sunday for a walk around and just to get a feel for the place, we didn't expect to meet anyone or get to discuss the venue. Michael O Neill came out to meet us and spend an hour and a half chatting to us. There was no big sell, no waffle, just genuine conversation. Straight away we knew Fernhill was going to be hard to beat. That first impression was not wrong. From that very moment Michael, the rest of the O Neill family and of course the amazing wedding coordinator Ann Cullinane were absolutely fantastic to deal with. Nothing was a problem. So friendly, so down to earth but so smooth and professional. As Michael said to us that first day...shur its west cork!

    The day was just absolute perfection. They really do weddings amazingly well. The marquee was pristine, the gardens were stunning and the food was gorgeous. So many of our guests raved about the food and I cant blame them as it was absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond with all the small touches would might never think of yourself and anything we asked them to do for us they had it already done.

    We are so thrilled with our day and so glad we went on first impressions. Thank you so much Ann and the O Neill Family.

    If you want a faultless, utterly professional and friendly venue for your wedding day, Fernhill House Hotel is it.

    Our wedding day

    We had such a fabulous wedding day. Everyone was talking about how good the service and the food was. Fernhill definitely cemented their reputation for spectacular food among our guests. All of the staff made the day more than we could have hoped for by going above and beyond for our guests and ourselves.
    From the first day we met Ann, Neill and Micheal we were made to feel like nothing was a problem and it helped us stay relaxed. As a result we had a wonderful day knowing everything was taken care of. We even had a few people say they would love to 're do their wedding in the gardens of Fernhill. To make people want to get married again just shows how amazing the venue is.
    We're both really looking forward to attending the next family wedding there
