We enjoyed our two week stay very much. The food was delicious. The front desk staff was so helpful. We enjoyed the Bistro and bar. It was fun to interact with bar staff and guests. We were happy to find tea service in the room. The dining room offered complementary breakfast and a beautiful country view.

A great location in a small village an easy walk to Blarney Castle and other attractions. Several restaurants near-by but a very nice pub and restaurant downstairs has all that you need. Good Irish breakfast in the morning. A short 10 minute drive into Cork.
This hotel was literally steps from the Blarney Castle making it a great location. The Blarney square had shops and pubs making it a nice place to stay. The hotel staff was wonderful and accommodating. Just a heads up the hotel lobby does close and it doesn't state that on the website. We actually got locked out one night and had to go to another hotel to ring our front desk. The owner lives next door and came down to open it up for us and was very apologetic.
We had a great weekend. Golf and spa facilities good. Food was excellent and staff very efficient and attentive. Our only criticism is that their needs to be a greater variety of music played in the bar and restaurant. The same 1 CD played on repeat was tedious
Situated in southern Ireland, just 8 km from Cork, Blarney boasts the beautiful medieval Blarney Castle and the world-famous Blarney Stone. Legend has it that anyone who kisses the stone receives the “gift of gab.”
