Our stay at the Muskerry Arms was great, from our speedy checkin at the pub downstairs to the free parking and free wifi. We ate dinner in the pub, which is quite lively at night with live music. The walls are thin so it's a bit noisy as most of the reviews say, but it's just been repainted and is... More

Stayed here for 3 nights , rooms are nice , food is super , and nice bar atmosphere and helpful staff. The noise levels are high and probably not suited to young kids trying to get sleep, but as a location for business its close to main roads and private parking also .

I was in cork for work and found the Muskerry Arms online for what I thought was a reasonable price. I stayed from Wednesday evening to Sunday morning Wednesday and Thursday night was grand. But my god on Friday and Saturday night was a killer (despite the fact I am a very heavy sleeper) Friday night I was woken at... More

My son and I stayed here last month on a very short trip to Ireland. I have been to Ireland several times and was trying to give my son a good taste Ireland in a short time. This place fit the bill perfectly. It is a true Irish pub/bed and breakfast. The staff here is wonderful and friendly, as are... More

We stayed one night on the 13th of Jan. We came to the restaurant and had an excellent sandwich and asked the waitress about a room. She was very nice and insisted that we look at the room before we took it. It was a beautiful room. Very clean and in a great location right across from the Castle! The... More

This hotel is in a great location in the heart of Blarney village. We arrived early afternoon, checked into our room and took advantage of the weather by going on a lovely walk around the area. We enjoyed a lovely meal in the bar that evening, which was great value for money. Great entertainment in the bar at night. Breakfast... More

A great local pub that welcomes visitors. Staff are fantastic, Guinness is spot on, and the atmosphere is good. It is a nice relaxed venue, with good live music on occasion. Busy area around the bar at the front, but quieter tables around the back for those who prefer. A favourite haunt that you will want to go back to!

Very nice modern bar that keeps the charms of old. This is a busy family run bar in the heart of Blarney village. The staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. You should definitely stop in for a pint if passing through. There is live music at the weekends and a good bar food menu if you require a snack whilst... More
