The Emmet House is very special in every way. Great rooms, caring & efficient service, wonderful music (especially Pig in the bar) and good food. Easy parking, too. I stayed three nights and will always return when I'm in town. I'm a big fan now. Joe

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 February 2017

Beautifully restored hotel on a gorgeous georgian square in the heart of Clonakilty. Opposite the Michael Collins museum and minutes away from the main street packed with cute little coffee shops, restaurants and shops. Our family room was really spacious, and tastefully decorated and the kids loved it. Some of the rooms overlooked the elegant square or else over the...

An absolute haven located in the heart of Clonakilty. The quaint, cosy, centrally located and friendly nature of this boutique hotel ensures a stay that will provide all that you may require. By far the nicest centrally located hotel that Clonakilty has to offer.

Went for Sunday lunch with my mum on Mother's Day. We both ordered the lamb. It was just two slices of fatty lamb accompanied by 2 roast potatoes and some red cabbage. Very disappointing but staff seemed genuinely apologetic

I stayed at The Emmet Hotel for 4 nights whilst visiting Clonakilty on a short break. I genuinely could find no fault with anything during my stay. The hotel staff were extraordinarily friendly and courteous right from check-in to my departure. The bar serves delicious meals (I can highly recommend the salmon). A wide variety of breakfasts were available but...
