I stayed here in November, I arrived in blarney and checked in. Usually pubs with accommodation are basic and often in serious need of TLC. To my surprise the rooms are of high standard, very modern. I found it to be very comfortable and really enjoyed the modern decor. In the centre of blarney and 15 mins to cork city... More

Stumbled upon this place quite by chance. Pulled over to get our bearings after a long, harrowing, rainy, dark drive from Limerick. Looked up to find the Muskerry Arms in front of us. They had a twin room available (my 20 yr old daughter and I traveling together) and it was wonderful. Crazy wind/rain storm during the night (we were... More

Charming location. Great for a quick overnight stay. Not overly friendly, however a hot spot on Friday night! Pub grub excellent and terrific service. Rooms are old but clean. Had a lovely nap in mid afternoon with no noise from the pub below to interfere. A bit overpriced for the amenities.

We recently held our 30th School Reunion in Muskerry Arms. There was no contest when choosing the venue as we knew that Mary Beth and her staff would look after us. Over 100 people turned up to the reunion and it will be talked about for a long time to come, not least because of the service which we got... More

My family stayed at The Muskerry Arms this summer during a two week British Isles vacation. I work for a global hotel company, and we used our brands for every other night of our trip. Our night at The Muskerry Arms was exceptional and helped us create some amazing memories! We were there on a Sunday night and we had... More

What a dreadful reception - key thrust over to us from a barman and not told there was an easier access to the room. Had to climb several staircases to the roof where window was jammed open and we had to get maintenance to fix it to stop wasps in the daytime and moths in the evening. Coffee facilities on... More

We stayed here on our last night in Ireland (a Friday) and were definitely pleased. It's right in the middle of town with the Blarney Castle basically across the street. The staff were nice and helpful and the pub being right downstairs is a plus, although if noise bothers you it might be an issue as there were people talking... More

Don't let the front of the place scare you off. We booked this location on line and it was the best decision we made in the town of Blarney. When we arrive the staff in the bar were very helpful in checking us in and the room as very clean. On the night we arrived the hotel was hosting a... More
