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

I have been to many many pubs across the world and have never experienced such great bar service. The two fellas working on Friday 28th November have not stopped to take breath for over 6 hours now - they take drink orders from tables in the front bar and even get cigarettes from the vending machine for fellow customers. I've... More

A lovely b&b pub in Blarney Village about 5 miles from Cork city and an ideal location if you don't want to stay in the main town. The room I had was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. The only downside I found was the laminate flooring; as nice as it looked, the noise from your neighbours to the side and... More

The Arms have great Pub-Grub and s wide selection of "pints to choose" Several restaurants around in addition to offer up some variety. Also, within a short walk is the Blarney Wool Outlet- massive location of very... More

Very beautiful property, spotlessly clean. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. The food is very good as well. The free breakfast was perfect! Only complaint is the noise, we got very little sleep do to the noise from downstairs.

Comfortable room above the Muskerry Arms pub. However, the experience is all about the bar downstairs and a wonderful Irish breakfast with black and white puddings, which were the best I've tasted. The bar has a great range of beers, including my personal favourite stout, Beamish. Live music every night, too. All round, a great place to stay in the... More

We stopped in at the Muskerry Arms for a bite to eat after visiting Blarney Castle. The pub is located right in the centre of the village and looks very inviting. It has table service for drinks as well as food and the waitress who took our order was very professional and accommodating. The menu is well priced with a... More
