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

Perfect location in Blarney....just a minute walk to the castle and gardens and the mill. Rooms were quite spacious and comfortable. The service was top notch, the staff so incredibly accommodating and attentive to our needs. Would return there again for sure. Excellent shopping at the Mills and the castle gardens are so worth the trip. Unique! Thank you for... More

Absolutely loved this hotel, the staff was incredibly responsive and kind. The food in the restaurant was some of the best we had in Ireland. Dinner was delightful, the desserts were delicious, and service was so very personable. The rooms were clean and large, very comfortable. The Wi-Fi signal was strong, and helpful to access internet on our devices. Definitely... More

Six of us ate at the Blarney Castle Hotel just a few days ago and the food and service were exceptional. They were very friendly and accommodating - even for bits that were off-menu - and it has to be ranked as one of the best meals out we have enjoyed in quite some time. Our party comprised of a...

After a few minutes, we were greeted, checked in and our bags were carried upstairs to rooms overlooking the Blarney Castle. The beds were so comfortable and the USB ports in the outlets were perfect for recharging. There was private parking in the back for guests.

We took a cab ride from our B&B, the Kenthouse, to the Town of Blarney and had a ball! The Castle is tough to climb- you need strong legs and arms to get to the top, but it's a lovely view. The grounds are beautiful and the town is quaint and friendly. Worth visiting!
