Stayed for 3 nights in November. The room (no. 28) was huge and the setting is very special. The room looked out over the village green and we could see the top of Blarney Castle which is only a few minutes walk away. The staff were just lovely. Ian made sure the breakfast was just as we wanted it. Every...

Visited the restaurant while in Blarney. Were not fussy, the pub food was average. Chicken curry seemed reheated but was OK. Hake was nice and fresh. Overall an OK visit! There was a large group of elderly people which was fitting for the place, and interior. 🍺

Very Quaint, Older, remodeled hotel, almost a bed and breakfast feel...our room was HUGE! Quick walk to the entrance of the Castle. The food was wonderful....French Onion Soup was the best! Just set in front of The Blarney Wool Mills store, which was a great place to shop.

Big comfortable room with view over the park, big friendly welcome, and the biggest breakfast I have ever been offered. Busy bar/restaurant offer great food made even better by staff led by Ian who are super attentive and friendly. Even after a manic night staff are hard at cleaning and polishing the next morning, spotless! A great place to stay............

While staying elsewhere in Blarney I opted to have bar food in Blarney Castle Hotel and I can only highly recommend their Osbournes Sirloin Steak. It was cooked to perfection with all the trimmings. This was followed with beautiful pints of Guinness. The atmosphere in the bar was also good with a mixture of locals and tourists. Worth a visit...

Clean, Comfortable, big rooms. Small hotel, so not noisy, and owner welcoming and takes an interest in your wellbeing. Lovely pub/restaurant for the evening. Very close to Blarney Castle, so can be first in the morning to kiss the stone (get in after the rain has washed the previous days drool off😀, and no queues). I'd certainly recommend the hotel....
