Lovely break in Blairscove Food, accommodation, setting all superb. The weather was very mild for the time of year. Buffet style starter and dessert and a great choice of main courses. This is an ideal spot for a special treat that's very accessible to Cork City.

This was our second time visiting Blairscove and once again it did not disappoint. The service from the minute we walked through the door was top class. The buffet starter has something for everyone. I had the duck this time around for a main. Make sure you leave room for the buffet dessert!!

Blair's Cove is a beautiful retreat in a lovely setting. Our trip was a gift on the Blue book from our children last Christmas. The Apt is luxurious and very comfortable. The dinner was delicious and very flavoursome- buffet starter divine and deserts out of this world. The breakfast was the same high standard served in the Apt. Thank you...

Great stay; great food; friendly and attentive staff. What more can one ask for. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Would recommend a drive down Sheeps Head and a beer in the Tinpot - a quintessential Irish pub.

my wife and I spent a lovely night here two weeks ago. Our apartment was beautiful.It had everything required of a bedroom with a great bathroom attached. The shower was fantastic...probably the best shower either of us ever used. Loads of hot water with a powerful spray. The restaurant is excellent with great choices . The buffet starters were superb...
