We were excited to stay here from the moment we booked. And wow, this place exceeded our expectations! Una and Ian are beyond friendly and accommodating. They truly care about their guests and make you feel like they are thinking about your needs at all times. They placed us in a room that was ideal for our family (we were... More

Stayed for the nights of the 2nd to 4th July inclusive. Sadly vist was to attend a funeral. From the very beginning Ian and his staff were extremely helpful and kind. We had several meals which were substantial and of good quality. Our room was a good size and very clean and comfortable with a good bathroom. Will be staying... 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

Hotel is in a very nice location, quite and very comfortable. We did not eat at the hotel, but breakfast was... More

We recently had a great night of Irish music at the Blarney Castle Hotel. We had a group of eight but our hotel called ahead and Sheila Barrett at the hotel had a table all set up for us. The music was great but just as charming were the local residents who made us all feel right at home. It... More

The Blarney Castle Hotel is old but has a lot of character. Right in the middle of the village by the green. The staff are all very nice helpful and friendly. Nice bar with atmosphere, music and good food. The rooms are large and clean facilities. Enjoyed our stay here

An entertaining and very enjoyable 30 minute visual presentation on the fascinating history of Blarney and the real meaning behind the tradition of kissing its famous stone. There are talks every hour or so (check for details) each day from 10.00am until late afternoon by Shane Lehane, local historian, archaeologist, folklorist and general expert in Irish Culture and Heritage. Don't... More

I recently had a group of 25 adults staying 2 nights. The owners were extremely personable and very helpful. This hotel is simply charming. It is not a Hilton or Holiday Inn, but then why go to Ireland and stay in a modern, American hotel? The location is ideal. Walking distance to Blarney Castle and Blarney Woolen Mills. The owner...

The place was recommend by our host and we're so glad. Not only did we enjoy a nice dinner but we were treated to real Irish music, dancing and story telling. A fun filled evening. Do yourself a favor and take to stop in, even if it's only for something to drink.
