Every time I am in Clon I make sure I go here for breakfast fry, even though I don't eat meat. It has loads more than rashers and sausages, such as eggs, mushrooms, beans, tomatoes and hash browns (get there early for these!). Yum....

We came in because it was the only pub without TV sports turned on. All big tables were reserved for local people but every of them just with two people. Although it was not crowded we had to wait for a table for about half an hour. Maybe it all was a bit unorganized because there was just one waiter... More

The hotel is old and our room was quite dated, but clean. The reasonable rate includes breakfast. While the hotel has its own gated parking lot, the lot has parking for only 8 or so cars. While a public car park is located behind the hotel, parking during the day is limited to 2 hours. The hotel staff were friendly... More

Ate here recently with hubby and 2 kids. Décor outdated but food was exceptional and very well priced. All the girls working there were lovely, brilliant with kids. Had smiles on their faces all the time. Would definitely return.

Both the bar and adjoining restaurant are excellent options in Clonakilty. Love the old world charm of the bar, full of nooks; crannys and curios. Great atmosphere with live music when I was there. Great Guinness and an overall relaxed vibe. The restaurant is really nice too. It has good food and a fantastic breakfast. Great, friendly service just like... More
