This is a fine place to pass the night in Blarney. It is central (you can walk to the castle and the Blarney Stone). The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. I expected it to be a bit noisier, being above a bar, but it was remarkably quiet, and I got a very good night's sleep. Breakfast was very good,... More

We stopped here for an expresso and liked the ambience . The service was very good and polite. We never tried the beer or food but that looked good as well. The suit of armour was well done and set up on the wall which added something to the decor. The Muskerry Arms is only a short walk from the... More

This B&B is the one that my friends and I saw in our holiday. Rooms are big with big bathrooms and without carpet. Moreover the B&B is over the pub which gives live music and good food and a very nice atmosphere. Despite the rooms are over the pub you don't hear music or voices from downstairs. Muskerry is very... More

The Muskerry Arms was very clean, the rooms were spacious and well decorated and the bathrooms had everything you needed. The staff in the bar and breakfast room went out of their way to ensure you had everything you needed. The food was very good and very reasonably priced. The Arms is in a great location, literally a stones throw... More

This was a very clean hotel close to Blarney Castle. We ate in the hotel's restaurant and had a lovely meal with great service and a guitarist playing some great tunes. Unfortunately the bed in room 2 was terrible, the worst we have ever slept on, well tried to sleep on. The music from the main bar was also very... More

The staff was awesome, the room was nice and the craic was ninety! The staff were very friendly, and accommodated everything we asked for. The best part of Muskerry Arms, however, is the live Irish music played in the restaurant and down in the pub every night during the summer!
