In December 2020, the inaugural Visit Cork Green Award was awarded to Fernhill House Hotel & Gardens in Clonakilty for their continual work on sustainable initiatives throughout the year.
This Award was set up to encourage and reward our tourism partners who made a commitment to operating sustainably and in 2020 we were delighted to present it to Fernhill House Hotel & Gardens.
Michael O’Neill and his team at the hotel deserve huge credit for there work on sustainability there including:
- Using solar panels for hot water and electricity
- Using their own well for water
- Growing their own food
- Planting 3,000 trees, as part of a larger project to plant 20,000 trees all around Clonakilty in 2020
