A spectacular vista of the Atlantic Ocean greets you on arrival at Dunmore House Hotel. This third generation family business first opened as a hotel in 1948. The house still retains much of its original character whilst providing all the comforts of a modern hotel. Situated on the shores of Clonakilty Bay in charming West Cork, the adjoining 9 hole golf course and sea terrace add to the enjoyment of this spectacular location. The bar and lounge areas are warm and inviting with an interesting collection of modern Irish art. Both the contemporary dining room and attractive terrace overlook the water. The extensive bar and dining room menus offer high quality locally sourced food, served daily. The magnificent coastal location of Dunmore House Hotel has been used to advantage to provide sea views from most rooms. The hotel is furnished and maintained to a high standard to ensure the comfort of all guests.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Dunmore House overlooks the ocean in Clonakilty, Cork. It is a beautiful family-run hotel, close to beach, with numerous walking trails nearby. Owner Carol, and all the staff are very welcoming. Rooms are tastefully furnished, with excellent food and service in both restaurant and bar. Views are absolutely stunning. Would make an ideal wedding location. Highly recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
From start to finish,hard to find fault. Super room with a nice balcony and sea view. Issue with broken balcony chair but sorted out wonderfully by receptionist (long plait).Great food,super breakfast menu and top class bar food. Scampi off the wall at €35 but value other than that. Great service from all staff but special mention for Ann Marie and Donna. Up house staff also very friendly. Can’t wait to return. Keep up the good work.

If your travel preferences include a well-appointed hotel, furnished in a casually elegant and intimate style, with outstanding food, service and staff, and located on beautiful ocean coastline, then you must get to the Dunmore House Hotel to experience a rare hospitality treat. My wife and I stayed at Dunmore House for several nights in September during a three week trip to Ireland. The glowing reviews and beautiful website photos do not adequately convey what an oasis this property is. Views of the ocean from the dining room or rooms are superb; a private beach and garden walk area provide guests with easy access to splendid scenery. The blues and greens of the sea are carried through the decor of the hotel, even down to the dining room plates, creating an overall sense of calm. Thick carpet underfoot, comfortable beds with smooth linens, and a large, well-lit, modern and stylish bathroom contribute to making one's stay refined and refreshing. The Dunmore House's level of service is exemplary. The front desk team was very helpful in responding to any request we made and in providing us with great information from a local perspective as to paths to hike, places to eat and "locals only" beaches to visit. The culinary team provided fresh, inventive and delicious selections, many of which were prepared using ingredients harvested from the on-site gardens and greenhouse. Meals are served by an attentive and personable staff, making the entire dining experience pleasurable. Our stay at the Dunmore House was a relaxing oasis; an antidote to the wear of travel and a perfect base from which to explore Ireland's West Cork region. Highly recommended!

Dunmore House was the site for my son's wedding. The views are beautiful, the staff is kind and helpful. The food is excellent. The one thing visitors should know is that it is a ten minute car or taxi ride into Clonakilty. Thank you Dunmore House for everything!!

We visited Dunmore House for dinner with our family (12 people). The menu had some nice options but it was quite expensive. I went for a mushroom risotto but I was very disappointed with it. Service was pretty slow too. I wouldn’t be returning to Dunmore House based on this experience.

We stayed for 3 nights to attend our friends wedding in the hotel. From the minute we arrived until we left everything was so relaxing and calm. We had such a wonderful stay. The wedding was amazing, beautiful setting, beautiful spaces for each element of the day. The food was delicious and always served with genuine warmth and attention to detail. Breakfast each day was lovely, plenty choice and a wide variety of options. We didn't want to leave. I would recommend to anyone to stay here. I would go back tomorrow and do it all again if i could. Just Wonderful.

Had lunch on the terrace overlooking the sea. Absolutely amazing views, we were blessed with glorious weather. Service was excellent as was the food (if a tad expensive) We went for a walk between mains and dessert as we were so full.
