This motel was odd. The lobby was under renovation, so guests were given a phone number to call. A girl named Rachel appeared to be the only person working. While the rooms were clean and comfortable, I wouldn't stay here again. Twice we had cars parked behind us, preventing us from leaving. We had to get in touch with Rachel... More

Nice people. Very nice room with a well stocked kitchen with utensils. Pool area is very well maintained and very clean. 2 minute walk to the water. This place was great. When we go back again next year I surely will stay there. Nice room, great location and the price was great too. What else can we say. The Blarney... More

This is a very dated hotel but it was clean. We would not recommend it because there's low life people actually living on the premises. This is home to them and you feel like you're invading their privacy and being watched at all times. It was a very strange place and honestly think if people didn't actually live there, it... More

My wife and I just walked in the door of the motel (it's our anniversary) and we found two bottles of wine, as well as a card wishing wishing us a happy anniversary. The room is GREAT and very clean. It's very obvious that they really care about the experiences of their guests. 100% A+ grade

Anyone considering a visit to Ft Lauderdale should seriously consider staying at the Blarney Castle, now under New Management and Ownership. Rooms are Basic but with all the facilities one requires including a good Swimming Pool, Laundry facilities and cooking facilities in most of the rooms. Free car parking and a short walk to the Beach. The new owner is... More

I fell upon this find 30 yrs ago and ever since I have stayed here when Marie can accommodate us. It's our first choice over anything else. It feels like coming home because I have gotten to know the owner and her staff. They make us feel welcomed every time including her long standing customers who like us have been... More

Old property - one of the 60ies/70ies type of motel; but CLEAN and Maria the lady owner is very nice. Very close to the beach (10mins of slow walk). VERY convenient price-wise co pared to chain hotels which night have been through the remodeling but from outside look like being same age. Don't be surprised that you don't find any... More

We stayed here for one night prior to a recent cruise. We had originally booked a place closer to the cruiseport. Are we ever glad we changed. Though this place has been around for decades, upkeep has been first rate. We stayed in a nice one bedroom suite very near the pool. With fewer than twenty rooms in the motel,... More

Loved this motel very close to the beach in Lauderdale. The owners were great, friendly and helpful. We loved our stay. The motel reminds me of something you would find in the 50s. Highly recommended.

I always stay here with my parents when I visit fort lauderdale. Marie the owner is such a nice host and the Blarney castle is like a resort it is wonderful. Everyone who stays at the Blarney is very nice. It is across the street from the beach
