Equestrian activities are a particular speciality with a close association between Dunmore House and Clonakilty Equestrian Centre (086 8226156), where cross country riding, beach treks and lessons are available.

We also have three stables on site where guests can keep their horse or pony during their stay. Transport is provided to nearby beaches if required while the quiet roads near the Hotel also provide opportunities for hacking out.

Why not take time to visit our family of miniature Shetland ponies on the grounds of the Hotel – a great favourite with our younger visitors and a very good photo option for our brides!
