Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blarney Castle Hotel. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. Rooms had beautiful furnishings and were very clean. A lovely atmosphere, with friendly and very accommodating staff. Ian and Una went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Lovely breakfast options, with a good range of savoury and sweet dishes.

I could honestly go on and on about the night we spent here :) We arrived as strangers, without a reservation, and ALMOST without a table to sit at. There was a birthday party booked for... More

We stayed one night at the Blarney Castle Hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking is located through a very narrow drive behind the hotel. Be sure of where you park. Parking violations are enforced. Our room was very comfortable and had a coffee maker. There is a good pub located on the premises. The hotel is situated... More

This is a wonderful hotel full of charm and in a great location. The village is really quite small and this is one of the few hotels there, but it is very nice. Not too pricey and the room was outstanding. It was located on the front, overlooking the green, and it was huge. You can tell the hotel is... More

We found a table in the pub area, which was filled with locals enjoying a Sunday afternoon pint, a newspaper and a bit of Craic. Our homemade... More
