We stayed here just before Christmas. The service we received in the Hotel, the bar and restaurant was excellent. The rooms are not super modern, but ample in size, very clean, decent beds and have everything you would expect of a good hotel. The staff is what makes this place so special, they really will go above and beyond and...

It's small, it's family run and it's very quaint and simple. They still have real keys and steps to the rooms. Ian is the proprietor and Julie seems to perform every task. Cosy fireplaces in the reception and dining room/bar. Food is good. It's located on the bid square in town near the castle.

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. 🍺

Dear Keith, Many thanks for taking the time to post a review of your recent lunch experience with us. I would certainly take offence to your allegations that we reheat our food here which is certainly not the case. All of our ingredients are freshly prepared for guests and customers at the point of which the order has been taken....

We ate here and the food & service was wonderful. Good choices from menu of the day. Service very friendly. Even had a visit from the chef. Highly recommend this restaurant. Restaurant got very crowded. We had a reservation.
