About Courtmacsherry Hotel
Courtmacsherry Hotel was built in 1820 as a Georgian Mansion, and with a long history in between, today it is a family-owned hotel, privately run by the Adams since 1973.
While Courtmacsherry Hotel started off as a Georgian mansion, built in 1820 and was formerly the summer home of the Earl of Shannon who planted many exotic trees, shrubs and woods around the village. On the front lawn of the hotel grounds is a Quercus suber cork oak tree, one of the oldest cork trees in Ireland. Courtmacsherry hotel is certainly stepped in history as it was passed from hand to hand over the centuries.
In 1973, Terry Adams bought Courtmacsherry hotel which grew from strength to strength as people travelled from afar to taste the renowned dishes like Fresh haddock and chips, half roasted duckling and Black sole to name a few. Terry was the Chef, the entertainer and the heart, soul & life of Courtmacsherry Hotel.
Terry’s father, Dr Denis Adams played a huge role with the wines sold in Courtmacsherry Hotel. He was a true wine Connoisseur and loved nothing more than to find the best wines, talk and taste all his finding with his much-loved customers.
In 2002, Terry fell seriously ill and so his son Billy, who had worked side by side his dad all his life in the hotel business and shared his passion, stepped up to the mark and began running the Hotel at a very young age of just 21. Billy was trained by the best so picking up the reins came natural to him.
In 2013, Billy married his childhood sweetheart Ellen and together they are currently running Courtmacsherry Hotel. Billy and Ellen both share an incredible passion for the hotel industry that it is no wonder that Courtmacsherry Hotel quickly got a reputation for being the Best Hotel in West Cork for creating an unforgettable Staycation! Billy and Ellen have two children, Tim and Meg and it is hoped that this homely and inviting tradition which was created within the Adams family will continue onto the next generation.
