The History of The Hamlet Court Hotel and O’Neill family

Our family, the O’Neills, arrived at the beautiful picturesque village of Johnstownbridge in December 1960 where we have remained a successful family owned and operated business until this day.

Our parents Murty and Phil along with Uncle Andrew bought a country shop and public house where they served the finest food and drink.

During the 60’s, 70’s 80#s and 90#s the business grew and thus the Hamlet Roadhouse was created, with other family members joining the ever expanding team as the years passed by. Our first head chef was John Kennedy, Mam’s brother. He started the catering side of the business which marked our entry into the wedding arena that in turn provided the foundation for the redevelopment of the site in2003, to The Hamlet Court Hotel.

The foresight, determination and hard work of our parents, family and staff, along with the loyalty and support of our clients, has allowed our business to grow enabling the current generation of O’Neills to continue in the family tradition.

Today, we are still a family run hotel with traditional values, a reputation for excellent food and also great service.

Together with our team of professionals we look forward to welcoming you and yours to The Hamlet Court Hotel
