We found all the staff at this hotel to be very friendly and welcoming. We had a room on the 2nd floor overlooking the street and although there was a bit of noise at closing time, it was not a problem. Room was large, bright, clean and airy, bed and pillows very good. The breakfast room was light and airy... More

Stayed at the Blarney Castle Hotel in May 2014. Great service from the front desk - helped us carry in bags after they helped us park in the small parking lot. Nice pub but did prefer the Muskerry pub down the street. -- Did the castle tour the next morning and it was great. Not sure why but we all... More

My family of 6 just stayed here and my only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! On our arrival, the owner came to greet us, not as a customer, but as though we were friends. Our rooms were very spacious, lovely and spotless. Our room had 2 windows, each with a flower-box, overlooking the greenery from the park across... More
