The Blacknight SME awards were held last weekend and a West Cork business is celebrating winning the award for most community-minded SME in Ireland. Fernhill House Hotel & Gardens in Clonakilty were celebrating after being awarded the prize from the ten finalists on the night.
The SME awards were held at the Radisson Blu hotel in Little Island and celebrated businesses which are known as the ‘backbone’ of the economy. Fernhill were also finalists in the environmentally minded business category, along with best food and drink SME in Ireland.
Proprietor Teresa O’Neill said the hotel was very honoured to receive recognition for their contribution to the community. ‘Our customers are extremely good to us so it really is a pleasure to be able to give something back.’
