Visited on a Thursday evening. We were warmly greeted and served quickly. We took advantage of the main course, dessert, pint and a coffee for €20. The burger was outstanding, pure steak with no dribbling fat. The sea food chowder was packed with fish and came with a selection of lovely bread. Desserts lovely too and outstanding value. We will...

Lively pub with brilliant music on both nights. Lovely atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Gary O Connor is a great host and very obliged. Family run pub and restaurant. Food is next to none. Definitely will return again. Mags Gleeson

Came in for a beer and a bite to eat. Great atmosphere. The service was quick and the people were polite. To start, I had the mushroom soup (great stuff). The burger was spectacular. If I come through Blarney again I will certainly. be sure to stop by.

Location is everything. So close to Blarney castle and right upstairs from the pub. While others complained about the noise from below I thought it was fine with earplugs. My complaint was more from the noises within the room. The toilet groaned loudly and for a long time after every flush. Not a great nights sleep but still a great...

Dropped in for a couple of drinks, lovely warm local atmosphere, outstanding whiskey selection, can highly recommend sampling. Music was provided by a soloist who made the night really enjoyable. A lot of the locals dine their and that is always a good sign. Will definitely return.

My husband and I toured Ireland to celebrate our 40th birthdays. Blarney was near the end of a wonderful yet aggressive travel agenda. We were greeted by Gary that evening after a long drive from Dingle Penninsula. We were tired and ready to settle in. Gary was so gracious and made us feel welcomed immediately. The rooms were wonderfully cozy...

Spent 3 nights in this very delightful pub/restaurant/hotel and I am unable to find anything that I didn't like. We were given a lovely welcome and was helped with our luggage to our chosen rooms. Although the bar area was very busy the service was almost immediate and friendly,it was very cosy and no problem getting seated. One night we...

I needed an overnight trip to Blarney at the last minute and stayed here. Very reasonable price of 49EURO B and B. Clean room, though only lukewarm water for a shower in the evening and blocked drain. The breakfast was decent, and cooked fresh. Now the room was upstairs to the pub, and in hindsight I probably shouldn't have booked...

Can't beat the location to the Blarney Castle. Literally a 5 minute walk to the ticket gate. It was cool that there was a Pub/Restaurant downstairs. It also seemed like the most popular pub in the town out of the 3 or 4 bar sthat were around. If pub food isn't your thing, there were a few good restaurants directly...

Stopped here for refreshments after visiting Blarney Castle and gardens. It was an easy walk to the picturesque square of Blarney. A lovely pub nicely decorated with may rooms for eating and relaxing with some cute "snugs" for 2. There are lodging accommodations but we did not see them. The owner Jerome was very friendly and warm. Very good comfort...
