FERNHILL House Hotel & Gardens is celebrating after winning an amazing wedding award recently to cap off a year of great improvements at the West Cork venue. 

The Clonakilty hotel was named best wedding ceremony venue in Ireland by RSVP, the Irish celebrity magazine. 

Teresa O’Neill, the proprietor of Fernhill, said the hotel was thrilled to have won the award. ‘The award really is a credit to the wonderful support that we receive from our team and customers here at Fernhill,’ she said. ‘Ceremonies are becoming more and more popular at venues so it is great to be recognised.’

The judges commended Fernhill for its choice of ceremony locations, from its outdoor wedding garden, to the chandelier-lit marquee and country house. They also highlighted the many photo opportunities for couples in the gardens and their top-ranked service on Tripadvisor in Co Cork.

‘We have made a huge amount of improvements during 2017 and 2018 to Fernhill so it is fantastic to get this recognition,’ said Teresa. ‘Our gardens, ballroom, bedrooms, entrance, marquee have all been refurbished. For our outdoor ceremony area, we have added a new aisle and preparation area for our brides to make sure that they look their best before meeting their groom at the altar. It has been an amazing year and we have lots of plans to improve even further for the future.’
