My son and daughter in law, had their wedding day at the muskerry arms recently. From the first time they went out to meet Mary Beth to arrange the proceedings she was so helpful to everyone, she literally went the extra mile. The day before the cermony, she made the function room available for decorations and she herself and members... More

A little over a week ago I married my husband in a ceremony at The Muskerry Arms, Blarney. We wanted an intimate wedding with close family and friends and we fell in love with the function room in The Arms as soon as we set foot inside it. From word go Mary Beth (the owner) was a delight to work... More

I stayed at the Muskerry Arms hotel for 2 nights. The hotel room was great, very clean and had everything you would expect and need. The inclusive breakfast was excellent. I ate at the resteraunt one evening and the fish and chips were very good and great value for money. The Guinness was first class and the live music was... More

Take a dinner & show at the upstairs restaurant with the rest of the tourists. The food was just ok by Irish standards, but the music and the show was great. Dexter provided great music & lots of humor. The bar staff at the downstairs bar was outstanding- best service in Ireland.

We did not stay at the lodging but ate at the pub. We went in after going to Blarney Castle to get a bite to eat and food was very good but seemed to be a bit pricey, but very good non the less and beer was cold.

The staff were incredibly friendly and went out of their way to make sure you had everything you wanted and that you were having a good time. The rooms were well maintained and comfortable. I was a solo traveler so the noise of the live music in the bar was great for me, but may not be suited to a... More

Lovely pub and extremely friendly staff who made a massive effort with us and the two children, beautiful location. Hoping to visit again at some point this year (to drink more of their brilliant Irish coffee)!
