A perfectly Irish bar, best pint in Cork, great music, pure Irish friendly experiences to be had here. Trad music every week. Sports banter and craic every day, real quality food and an awesome family run hotel. 10/15 minutes from the city. Ideal Base for all.

Pleasant staff; no elevator, though luggage carried to/from room; good location (near Blarney Castle, obviously), fabulous jam session in bar; had to squeeze around table with suitcase to get in/out of room. Mattress o.k.

This is a quaint hotel just a stones throw away from the Blarney Castle and Gardens. That alone makes this a very attractive place to stay. The staff is most accommodating but there is a drawback to staying on a Saturday night. Unless you are a heavy sleeper, you probably won't be able to sleep till after the band stops... More

Stayed for one night midweek. Given a beautiful king sized bedroom overlooking the Square. Everything spotlessly clean. Staff couldn't have been more friendly. Irish breakfast highly recommended. Perfect location for visiting Blarney Castle.

We stayed in this hotel due to family funeral, 19 of us in total for four nights and they catered for two receptions for us, one a buffet and the other a sit down meal for 40, all at quite short notice. I can't speak too highly of the way we were a accommodated, the friendliness of the staff, quality... More

Had an excellent stay overnight. Other comments about the staff and breakfast are right on, as we found both to be excellent. Our room overlooked the square and was well furnished, clean and comfortable. With dining and music onsite the night we stayed, we found no need to spend time elsewhere. The pub is very popular and a charming spot... More

We stayed here the first of May and was concerned at first that there was not an elevator - but not a problem -- the staff carry your luggage up to your room and pick it up again when you depart. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic and the service outstanding. They bake fresh scones... More
