Steeped in old world charm and personality, Fernhill is the perfect combination of a stunning West Cork Country House and Gardens with unrivalled service led by the fourth generation of O’Neill’s. An historic Georgian mansion set on 13 acres of outstanding gardens, designed by Chelsea gold medal winner, Mary Reynolds, of which are mixed between formal areas, patios, terraces and bridged board walks to wilder areas encapsulating a permaculture forest, stone circle and river valley.

The gardens inspire everything at Fernhill including their own gin and food which features produce from their Victorian Walled Kitchen Garden, Orchard and herb garden. Sustainability has long been part of Fernhill and they have been recognised nationally for it.

Fernhill House is not just another Country House. It is home to the O’Neill family. Michael Snr has been a chef for 50 years, Lady of the House Teresa has overseen service, interior design and is the house florist for over 40 years and their three sons, Neil, Michael Jnr and Gearoid look after the other departments in the house. A Country House that provides time and time again the level of personable care that only comes from a team that lives the spirit of family-run service and hospitality daily to all whom enter its doors.

Fernhill is the perfect combination of luxury and allure, making it the perfect place to explore or relax and enjoy that well-earned break away, all tucked away in West Cork’s rolling countryside.
